SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 13 OF ARROW!!!! In the newest episode of arrow we found out Deathstroke is working undercover with Yao Fei, but he must be a bad guy because in the plot his mask is on a log with a arrow throw it so GA kills him at some point. whats everyone's take on this? i think he's a triple agent

I don't know about Deathstroke in Arrow being a good  or bad guy, but in the Deathstroke comic books to me he seems like a good guy eventho I have been told that he really is a bad guy.

Maybe in the tv show, Deathstroke is really a good guy working for the government. Oliver does not work for the government so it is possible Oliver has some disagreements with Deathstroke. In the comics, Deathstroke seems to do more good than bad so maybe Deathstroke is also a good guy in the comics.

@Jorgevy: no

@Matchstick: Probably closer to this.

Also, it seems unlikely they'd kill off a character like him on the island and not leave the possibility for him to appear in the current story timeline.

@MonkeyStarship: I think that GA killed Steve but Slade will come to the city to get revenge as the finale. Remember apparently there are two Deathstrokes. Hopefully steve dies because if Slade dies it won't feel right. If thats the finale I'm excited.

@MonkeyStarship: Right? I hope they don't kill him off though it better be very intense.

Didn't the guy said he wasn't the same guy that tortured him ? That that was his partner or something?

#21 Posted by MonkeyStarship (210 posts) - - Show Bio

I have been thoroughly disappointed with how Deathstroke has been portrayed on Arrow. It's just pathetic

#23 Posted by MonkeyStarship (210 posts) - - Show Bio

@SNascimento: yes he did, i think he means he is a different person when he puts on the mask

Not that we know of. He's just peak/slightly enhanced human with good hand-to-hand fighting skills, and has good swordsmanship.

Yeah he said that, but it's open to doubt.

1. The most important thing to remember is that Slade has always been manipulative and thus everything we know about him so far could easily just be a lie. Notice how in the last flashback scene of "betrayal" Slades story is first "Yao Fei and I were trying to get off this Island together." and then when Oliver confronts Slade about the mask the story changes to "Oh and my partner as well who happens to wear the same operational mask."

2. If Slade is telling the truth about his partner. The mask we've seen with the arrow through it could easily not be Slade's at all, but his partners.

Probably not

there are 2 deathstrokes-it's their codename for the operation- in the series so far. one is good(crixus) and the other is bad. other guy lost his eye as in the comics, while he's fighting slade. but things may turn out to be different; for example bill wintergreen(i don't think he's dead yet) and slade may fight again and this time bill(probably he ends up dead) takes slade's eye for revenge. after that, something leads slade to dark side(though he has never been a pure bad guy), and here's your deathstroke..
