Oliver Queen and Slade Wilson have a very complicated history. They’ve been friends, they’ve been enemies, and following the events of the “Arrow” season 5 finale, it not appears that they’re frenemies.
Slade and Oliver will be putting their differences aside to work together once again in this week’s episode titled “Deathstroke Returns” and it will be the first episode of a two part, Slade Wilson-centric story.
In the “Arrow” season 5 finale, Slade Wilson helped Oliver Queen get his son back, now it’s time for Oliver to repay the favor.
Slade has tracked down his son, and the CW has released a new clip from “Deathstroke Returns” which features Slade telling Oliver exactly what he needs from him. Check it out below.
“Deathstroke Returns” airs tonight on the CW.
“SLADE RETURNS — Slade (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. Joel Novoa directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Spiro Skentzos (#605). Original airdate 11/9/2017.”
