It seems Dolph will be filming episode 21 this week (and later on the season's final 23rd episode) around Whytecliff Park...

Arrow: Oliver forced to confront his vigilante past
“We’ve always had this tradition of doing what we call the ‘all-flashback’ or ‘mostly flashback’ episode,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim explains. “That’s actually what this episode is going to be. It’s going to be a story that’s mostly set in Russia, with Dolph Lundgren coming back as Kovar. It’s the big confrontation that we’ve been building up to for the past several episodes, which is the Bratva vs. Kovar, with a couple surprises thrown in — Oliver may or may not get a certain tattoo; he may or may not lose a certain tattoo.”

Enjoyed him on last night's episode. Really gave him a chance to cut loose and revel in being the bad guy. Hope his future appearances are more in line with this one.

Really liked the episode!! Dolph was great and overall a great episode. But at moments his russian accent felt weird.
But overall, yet another job from director Kevin Tancharoen.

He was good.

Other than that, I personally feel like this show (and others alike) is like a soap opera with a big budget and comic book based character...

I now have have doubts to whether or not Dolph will be in episodes 22 and 23 as announced, if that's not the case could it be that they now want to keep his character in store for the next season?

Trailers for the final 5 episodes should appear this week so we may find out...

No info of him filming Episode 23?

Hmmm ... if they are keeping him for the next season, it will be set in the present then. Because the producers pretty much confirmed they are done with the Oliver's flashbacks, and the final episode will be back on the island where he was found at the begining of Season 1.

Supposedly Dolph should be in this week's episode, "Honor Thy Father", but I'm not sure.

Finally getting around to watching the episodes with Dolph. Maybe I'm alone in making this statement, but I think this is some of Dolph's best acting... His accent is solid, and his character makes you forget that you're watching Dolph. :) Slightly odd, considering this is a television show of all things. Then again, these TV shows seem to have better budgets and production values than a lot of the DTV stuff these days.

Like I said, maybe I'm alone, but I've been extremely impressed.

It's also because Arrow's producers (who are the same as Aquaman's) have been impressed that he's incorporated to Aquaman's cast, too, isn't it?

It's the same producers per say but it's the same major studio, the reception of Dolph's guest-appearances on ARROW probably did help them in the final approval of approving his casting but from what I understand it really was AQUAMAN director James Wan who wanted him because he's a fan (otherwise I don't think studio executives would spontaneously gone to him).

Coming back on ARROW and Dolph, he certainly stands out as the best and most charismatic actor in the show from what I've seen (but god I personally find it so dull and boring -almost painful- to watch when D's not on screen).

Then again, these TV shows seem to have better budgets and production values than a lot of the DTV stuff these days.

There's no doubt about it, I don't know how much ARROW episodes cost but surely the budget of a $1-2 million DTV (at least) and for the past 15 years TV shows hired some of the best crews (and just the fact that they're continuously over a season and five in this case also helps tremendously their strengths and efficiency, which is not possible on a 2 to 4 weeks shoot)...
