“The Flash” Season 3 writer Zack Stentz was sharing some screenwriting tips on Twitter on Sunday, Sept. 25, when he unexpectedly revealed a Barry-Cisco scene he would like to see on the CW series in the future.
“Screenwriting tweet: it’s okay if you have a great idea, image, or line & don’t know where it fits. You’ll find the right place for it...,” Stentz wrote on the social networking site, which he quickly expounded by providing an example.
“Like, I’ve been obsessed by the image of Barry [Grant Gustin] & Cisco [Carlos Valdes] playing with Legos together. I’ll eventually find a scene where it makes sense,” he added in a follow-up tweet.
Stentz then shared that his friend and fellow screenwriter Toni Graphia, whose writing credits include “Outlander” and “Battlestar Galactica,” writes that way a lot. “She’ll want a zebra in a scene, then find a way to do it,” he tweeted.

In Season 2 of “The Flash,” Stentz wrote episode 21 (“The Runaway Dinosaur”), which Kevin Smith directed. In the upcoming Season 3, Stentz penned the script for episode 5 (“Monster”), which was helmed by the show’s longtime director of photography Kim Miles.
Although Stentz is credited as the writer of the “Monster” episode, he tweeted last month that the script for the episode is really a product of team effort. “…It feels weird to call anything ‘my episode’ when all our wonderful writers & producers contribute to the eps!” Stentz replied to question from a fan.
Aside from “The Flash,” Stentz also wrote for the TV series “Andromeda,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” and “Fringe.” On the film side, Stentz co-wrote the screenplay for the “Power Rangers” film, which is slated for a March 24, 2017 release. Stentz is also set to write a Booster Gold movie with Greg Berlanti producing and possibly directing.
“The Flash” Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 8 p.m. on The CW.
