There have been so many reports and denials about Deathstroke returning to Arrow, but now there’s actual real footage of him in a brand new trailer.
Manu Bennett will make his return in the season five finale and it looks like it’s going to be epic.
“What brought you back to the island?” the villain asks, dressed in rags from behind bars.
“I need your help,” Oliver replies.
Deathstroke quips: “Just like old times.”
Fans have been pretty much confused as to whether the character would EVER return lately, because, well, the people involved have been saying really confusing things.
Last month Green Arrow himself, Stephen Amell, confirmed his enemy’s return, then Bennett strongly denied the whole thing until another recent trailer confirmed he was telling porkies the whole time.
After all that, the question is where will he fit into the current storyline?
Well, Oliver needs help in defeating his current enemy Prometheus (Josh Segarra) once and for all, and it seems that things have got SO bad that he needs the help of his biggest foe to take him down for good.
So, the Green Arrow makes a trip back to the Lian Yu prison cell where he left Deathstroke years ago in the hope that they can join forces, at least for a bit.
Let’s face it, Deathstroke is pretty much the best villain, and bringing him back to team up with the Green Arrow is pretty awesome.
Arrow continues on Wednesdays on The CW in the US. Sky1 airs the show in the UK.
