A tweet from EP Marc Guggenheim confirmed that the camera’s are rolling on Slade’s big episode:

In addition to learning a little bit more about missing events in the life of our favorite DC Villain, we will also be getting the return of another character.
The episode will also feature the return of Joe Dinicol as Rory Regan aka Ragman.
