Stephen Amell has teased that fans should be prepared for huge stories coming up as Arrow season 5 is heading to its finale.
Amell (Oliver Queen/Green Arrow) has hinted the return of Green Arrow’s nemesis, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (Manu Bennett). Team Arrow is currently battling Adrian Chase/Prometheus (Josh Segarra) and the Vigilante. But it seems like Deathstroke will be joining the list very soon.
Viewers have known that Slade Wilson is presently locked up at Lian Yu. Amell however shared on social media recently a photo of the villain’s mask with an arrow through his eye. This sparked speculations that Slade Wilson will probably appear before season 5 ends.
The actor also implied that the season finale of The CW superhero series will be an epic one. He tweeted:
“Just read 522 – our penultimate episode — Holy s***.”
Meanwhile, Amell also revealed that Olicity fans have something to look forward to in the upcoming episodes. During the recent PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles, the star was asked about the future of Olicity. MoviePilot quoted Amell as saying:
“I will say that they have some really, really cool stuff coming up.”
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim added having Felicity working with hacker group Helix is going to help her understand what Oliver has to deal with. The couple had falling out after Felicity found out that Oliver lied to her about his son in the previous season.

In the recent episode, Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig) helped Chase in abducting Oliver. This week, the Star City District Attorney will try to break Oliver.
In a sneak peek for episode 17, titled Kapiushon, the mayor is seen shackled to the floor of a prison cell while Chase is taunting him. The antagonist is urging Oliver to reveal his secrets and everything will end. At one point, Chase will show Oliver a picture of his son, while claiming he will kill Oliver’s loved ones.
