“Arrow” is currently on a break, but when the show returns in a few weeks we will be jumping into the beginning of the end for season 5. It looks like season 5 will be going out with a bang one way or another, because Stephen Amell recently welcomed Manu Bennett, who will be reprising his role as Deathstroke/Slade Wilson, back to the cast.

Prometheus has been one of Oliver’s most dangerous adversaries yet, and co-showrunner Wendy Mericle recently confirmed during an interview that Oliver will be forming an unlikely alliance to take down his foe.
“The alliances are going to be very surprising. You’re not going to believe who Oliver is working with to defeat Prometheus. It’s going to be really emotional. It’s going to be all about Oliver’s family, but not the family we’re thinking of right now. It’s going to end in a giant explosion, but not where we think it’s going to end, and the emotional punch is going to be bigger than the actual physical part of the bombs going off.”
Could the Green Arrow be forming an unlikely alliance with Deathstroke? Judging from the fact that Amell wrote “desperate times call for desperate measures” in his tweet, it would appear that there’s a very strong change we’ll be seeing Slade and Queen together again.
