The CW sure knows how to nurture their talent. The studio has encouraged many of their shows' cast to try their hand at stepping behind the camera.

Some of the actors that have taken advantage of that opportunity include Supernatural's Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins, The Flash's Danielle Panabaker and Tom Cavanagh, Supergirl's Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, and David Harewood, as well as Arrow's David Ramsey.

Another individual that's been bitten by the directing bug is Legends of Tomorrow's Caity Lotz.

She previously helmed two Legends episodes and recently added this week's The Flash episode, "The Curious Case of Bartholomew Allen," to her resume. The episode found Barry rapidly aging after being exposed to some strange device.

As it turns out, a scientist was planning to steal everyone's youthful energy in order to make himself young again.

With Barry's bones aching, his hair graying, and his powers disappearing, time was quickly running out for the speedster. 

Caity Lotz recently spoke with CBR about directing in the Arrowverse, the comedic beats, working with Grant Gustin, and Dungeons & Dragons.

It was definitely new. It felt totally new. I knew the actors, but I didn't really know the crew, which as a director, you spend a lot of time with the crew.
