Oliver may not be donning the green hood, but he is still reporting to duty. Last week in the episode ‘Reversal’, the final closing minutes showed Oliver getting a phone call from an old ‘friend’ – Slade Wilson.
This week’s episode is titled ‘Deathstroke Returns’, and I’m sure you have a pretty good guess as to what character we are going to see making a heavy appearance! The last time we saw Slade was in the Season 6 premiere, about to set off on a quest to find his son. It would appear as though the mission is not going to go without a few… complications. Then again, does anything involving Slade ever go as planned?
Check out the official preview and synopsis below:
Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) returns and asks Oliver (Stephen Amell) for help in tracking down his son. When they learn Joe (guest star William Franklyn-Miller) has been taken hostage by mercenaries, their mission to save him gets complicated by a terrible revelation that could shatter Slade’s hopes of reunion forever. Meanwhile, Vigilante reappears in Star City.
‘Deathstroke Returns’ airs when Arrow returns on Thursday, November 9th at 9PM/EST on The CW.
