Deathstroke is back and an al Ghul showdown in new trailer for Arrow's return

After a brief hiatus, Arrow returns with five new episodes to take us through the rest of Season 5. Expect al Ghuls, twists, and … Deathstroke’s return?

The trailer throws a whole lot of balls into the air, and though Prometheus might be on the run, that doesn’t mean he’ll be leaving Team Arrow alone. It seems he’s picking the team apart one by one, pushing everyone to their limits to try and shut him down. Felicity looks to go deeper down the shady hacker rabbit hole, which puts her at odds with the rest of the gang. We also get to see the first scene of Talia and Nyssa’s contentious reunion, and this family gets along about as well as you might expect from the League of Assassins. 

But the biggest reveal is the apparent return of Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke. Bennett has been cagey about potentially returning to the show, but it certainly sounds like his voice in that final scene. With Oliver seeking him out, could we see a Green Arrow/Deathstroke team-up to take on Prometheus? Now, that could be interesting.

Arrow returns April 26 on The CW.
