Arrow is pretty much always introducing new characters and saying goodbye to other characters. Thankfully, many fan-favorite characters have later returned for few episodes. We’ve seen this with Roy Harper/Arsenal, Sara Lance/Canary, Laurel Lance/Black Canary/Black Siren to name a few.
And now Deathstroke and Nyssa al Ghul will be added to the list.
Apparently both characters will return as an ally, not an enemy for the Team Arrow.
Executive producer Wendy Mericle recently said in an interview that
“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,” she said. “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.”
Katrina Law’s Nyssa al Ghul will apparently return for the last few episodes of season 5. There is no word yet on how many episodes Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke will be in.
We’ve last seen Deathstroke in Oliver’s private prison on Lian Yu back in season 3, and Nyssa after she disbanded the League of Assassins back in season 4.
