Manu Bennett back as Deathstroke for Arrow’s season finale
You didn’t misread the title, Manu Bennett is in fact returning for Arrow’s season five finale.
This comes as Stephen Amell (who plays the Oliver Queen) tweeted at Manu Bennett saying “Desperate times call for desperate measures, Welcome back @manubennett”. Now people who follow the Arrow crew on social media (like me) may get very cautious around news like this, for the 100th episode there was a lot of set pictures that showed Stephen Amell sitting beside a stuntman dressed as Deathstroke and it unfortunately turned out that Manu didn’t appear in that episode at all and it was just a stuntman. This also comes as kind of a surprise as Manu has been incredibly vocal in the past about how he dislikes how they treated his character on the show in season 3, he has however over the last few months started tweeting at some of the cast in joking ways.
The season finale is also going to be titled ‘Lian Yu’, the name of the island that Oliver was shipwrecked on and it is also Chinese Mandarin for Purgatory, it is also the location where Slade is currently being kept in Arrow and it appears that the entirety of the final episode (and most likely some of episode 22) will take place on Lian Yu.
It is possible that Slade will team up with Oliver to take down Prometheus, it’s also possible that Slade will side with Prometheus against Oliver, or this could just be a cameo and we get a quick scene of him in his Argus cell (but because of how hyped up this is getting, I extremely doubt it), either way this news has me extremely excited for the final five episodes of the season and I can’t wait.
Arrow returns on the 26th of April for the final five episodes of season five.
