While Arrow is currently on a break until next week as the show will be taking part of the 4-show crossover event, production is still active in Vancouver, Canada. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed today that the 12th episode is in production and is titled “Bratva” which indicates that the episode will be heavily Russian focused.
In the earlier seasons, the show would once per season do a heavy flashback episode where the episode would barely take place in the present.
