I have a question since there wil be a new villain where does that leave deathstroke? I know he is in a prison already and unable to escape from taht particular prison but will he return to the show at some point in the season, I mean the actor? Does anyone knows if the actor will return or his appearance on the show ended last season?

@ Maria

the actor isn't scheduled to return and I personally think it was the perfect end
to the Slade-Oliver story with Slade locked up on the island bringing him back could spoil all that and there's plenty of other big villains
coming so he doesn't need to return

Arrow is so good! Season 3 is going to be epic. I like that they kept Waller and ARGUS around.

Arrow Quotes

Oliver Queen is dead, eventually to be reborn as Ra's al Ghul. For now, only the Arrow, Al Sah-him, shall remain. Al Sah-him, Heir to the Demon.

Ra's al Ghul

Are you done?
Oliver; Yeah, I'm done. I'm done taking the blame and I'm done caring. Why don't you go have a drink. Get wasted. Go to Verdant. I'll pay for it. I have loved you for half of my life but I'm done running after you.
