Following last night’s new episode of the series, The CW has debuted the first promo and photos for next week’s all-new episode of Arrow featuring the return of Manu Bennett as Deathstroke!
Fittingly titled “Deathstroke Returns,” the episode is set to air Thursday November 9 and is officially described as follows:
“Slade (guest star 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, which was written by Ben Sokolowski & Spiro Skentzos.
