All hands are on deck for the filming of Arrow this week, as the seventeenth episode of season five has officially begun production.
Marc Guggenheim, the show's executive producer, shared a cover of the new episode's script, and let fans know that it was beginning production this morning.
Along with the production start date, the photo also revealed the name of the new episode, which had been kept a secret until now.
Episode 17 will be titled 'Kapot', which is a Russian word meaning 'cowl' or 'hood'.
Green Arrow is famous for his green hood, and the show has been spending some serious time in Russia, so the title isn't much of a shock.
Many are speculating however, that this could be the flashback-centric episode that the writers have been teasing. They have announced that there will be a flashback episode, set in Russia, and starring Dolph Lundgren. The Russian translation in the title could mean that episode 17 heads back in time.
The next episode, titled "Second Chances" airs Wednesday, February 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
