Arrow's Slade Wilson is a fighter and a lover. That’s because the former murder-machine known as Deathstroke had a wife and a son, Joe. Now, according to Entertainment Weekly, that son will be appearing in the CW show, to be played by Liam Hall.

Joe is a military man like his dad, and like his dad, he’s run afoul of some very bad people. He’s currently imprisoned, but Oliver has provided some information to help Slade come to his rescue.

Although his name doesn’t have immediate recognition, Hall has been a professional working actor since 2013. He’s appeared in one episode of Lucifer and has a role in the pilot for the upcoming A&E horror series Let the Right One In.

Slade has another son in Legends of Tomorrow, Grant Wilson, but he’s only a future potential son. In the comic books, Slade also has a daughter, Rose. So far, the character has yet to make an appearance, or even get a mention, in Arrow.

Want to know more? You’ll have to wait until October 12, when Arrow returns for its sixth season.
