Deathstroke is returning to Arrow in the Season 5 finale. CONFIRMED: Manu Bennett (Slade) In The Arrow Season 5 Finale

It had been said that an unexpected ally becomes involved to stop Prometheus… and now, a Tweet from Stephen Amell has revealed just who that ally will be.

Amell today Tweeted a photo of a Deathstroke helmet and tagged it “Desperate times call for desperate measures. Welcome back, @manubennett.” The Arrow Season 5 finale, possibly titled “Lian Yu,” is currently filming.

Doing the math… and assuming Stephen is not just kidding around… could it be that Manu Bennett aka Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke is coming back?

We hope so. It HAS been confirmed that many people are coming back for the season finale, and Slade is a character that many have been hoping to see again.

UPDATE: GreenArrowTV has gotten confirmation from the network and the studio that Manu Bennett is indeed in the Arrow season finale… Stephen was definitely not kidding!

You can see the Tweet below.

    I think they release plot points like this to stop leaks from getting out. I can only surmise that the producers thought they couldn’t keep this under wraps so they let Stephen put out this pic so they could release it on their terms. I can’t think of any other reason because this would’ve been a VERY nice surprise.

    Im so confused. Reputable websites are reporting and confirming this as fact. Yet some tweets from Bennet himself suggest otherwise. What the hell is going on?

      It might not be Manu playing Deathstroke in the suit. But I do think he will record lines that will be used in the episode.

        Please don’t tell other users to “get a life” here. Everyone’s entitled to like different things.

          I apologize for the choice of words that I used. I stand by the message I was trying to get across though.
