When Green Arrow and Slade Wilson – a.k.a. Deathstroke – teamed up at the end of Arrow season 5, information about Wilson’s son was part of the deal. Wilson, seemingly reformed, makes use of the information Oliver provides, and it looks like we’ll meet Joe Wilson in a two-part episode in Arrow‘s sixth season.
Liam Hall has been cast in the role, and looks to be taking on the family business. According to Entertainment Weekly, Joe Wilson will be found in a remote prison, “fighting for his life,” after having joined the Australian Secret Intelligence Service.
How dangerous is the son of Deathstroke?
Just what role Joe will play is a mystery right now. He could become a major villain for the season, following in his father’s footsteps, or the two could just have a warm, fuzzy reunion. No, that last one definitely isn’t happening. In the DC universe, Joe Wilson is also known as Jericho, and has been a frequent enemy of the Titans, the team led by Robin.
Arrow season 6 premieres October 10, and we’ll likely find out what Arrow‘s plans for Joe Wilson are shortly after.
