He brought such an intensity to the role that the show just hasn’t been quite as good; the Flash crossover has been fun but so far there hasn’t been a big bad villain for this season.
It looks like it will be Ra’s Al Ghul next week but the good news is Deathstroke is coming back in the new year.
The last we saw Slade he was cooped up in the ARGUS Supermax prison in Lian Yu but he’s somehow going to get out and come back to Starling City.
Manu talked about it at the time, saying “Realistically, when we talk about storyline, they threw me into a really interesting place: Purgatory. You know, I’m left at the end shaking the bars, going ‘I keep my promises, kid.’ And I think I meant it. So I don’t think that they are just going to let that voice subside into the vast abyss… But at this stage, I don’t know. They said at the end of the season last year, they said: ‘Look, we want you back. We want you back.’ But there’s been no indication yet of how they’ll go about that at any point in time, right now.”
Well Slade is coming back but we aren’t sure on what capacity; will he join the Suicide Squad or is he gunning for Oliver? All will be revealed in 2015.
