How does Arrow Season 4 differ from the first three seasons? Well, if you ask me that question my answer would be that this season didn't feature Manu Bennett's Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, yet! I'm a big fan of the actor and his incarnation of the character.
Slade Wilson made his first appearance in the flashback sequences of the first season. We saw him as a friend and mentor to Oliver Queen in Lian Yu. In the second season of Arrow, we saw him evolve as the big baddie of the season.
In the third season, Slade didn't impose much of a threat - just a little in one episode when he escaped from the A.R.G.U.S. supermax cell in Lian Yu. He was recaptured by the end of the episode.
Still, we got to see him at least! But in the fourth season, we haven't seen him yet and it doesn't seem like we eventually would.
Well, I am not the only one missing Manu Bennett's Deathstroke in Arrow! Lead actor Stephen Amell, too, is missing him! During a recent panel at the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey, the actor said (via Comic Book):
"Manu is a character, and Manu played a great character. And I really honest think that Arrow has been missing something since he hasn’t been around. I really do. He was a transformative villain. I would really love it if Deathstroke could keep being a part of the Arrow universe."
I would really love it too! In case you haven't watched this, here's a tribute to Manu Bennett's Deathstroke - one of my favorite fan-made pieces!
New ARROW Promo Shows Felicity Smoak in her Goth-Attire!
In the fifth episode of Arrow Season 3 titled "˜The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak', we got to explore the past of Emily Bett Rickards' character. We saw her in a Goth-attire. In the upcoming episode of Arrow Season 4, we will get to see Felicity Smoak in that attire as well!
That's what an international promo of this Wednesday's episode "˜A.W.O.L.' confirms! It isn't a good quality video clip though. Check it out below!
