Stephen Amell on the Green Arrow/Slade Dynamic | ScreenRant
Why was Arrow unable to kill Slade Wilson, but they were easily killing people . for some kind of relationship between them, then no they never met each other.

Slade Wilson is a former member of Team 7, an elite division of the Australian the Deathstroke mask in Slade's possession, Slade revealed his connection to.
Grayson took the first of his revenge by bursting in on Deathstroke and Rose's training session, revealing to the latter that the Kryptonite that Deathstroke had implanted in place of her missing eye was radioactive and deadly to humans as well as to Kryptonians though slower in its effects on humans, as revealed by Lex Luthor's old possession of a Kryptonite ring that forced him to transfer his brain to a cloned body. Angered, Slade went after Nightwing with a grenade, only to have Rose try to stop him.
Amid the smoke of the resulting explosion, Rose fled, telling her father that she hated him. During the struggle, he was questioned regarding his motives for aiding the Secret Society. His claims of monetary motivation were deemed unsatisfactory, and he was told to take responsibility before being rendered unconscious. One Year Later Slade appears after the one year jump. Apparently in hiding, he nearly murders a crony of several Star City businessmen who want to hire him for a murder.

Before finishing his violent refusal, he asks the name of the target; when informed that it was to be the mayor of Star City, Oliver Queen whom Deathstroke knows is secretly Green Arrowhe spares the lackey and decides to take the job.
However, things don't quite go according to plan, with Green Arrow using the resources of both his identities, then trapping him within a ring of armed National Guardsmen. The fight ends with Deathstroke's arrest and subsequent conviction and incarceration; however, this is revealed as a ploy to gain access to another jailed foe of Green Arrow's who has information on the hero's activities in the "lost year", which include Green Arrow studying under an assassin, Natas, who once trained Deathstroke himself.
Deathstroke is also active behind the scenes in Teen Titanscurrently in the process of organizing a counter-team of teen superhumans that will be known as Titans East. The current Titans team included Ravagerwho now wanted nothing to do with her father. Deathstroke seemingly intended to "reclaim" Ravager and a recently resurrected Jericho from the Titans or, if that failed, to crush them along with the rest of the team. For these reasons, he specially selected each member of Titans East, believing that, overall, each member would successfully counteract every member of the current Teen Titans line-up.
Deathstroke was manipulating every member of his new team in one way or another. He had blackmailed former Titan Risk while at the same time offering him an outlet for his rage, was drugging Batgirl with the same serum he'd used on Rose, and supplied Inertia with a formula which granted superhuman speed to compensate for the loss of the Speed Force following the initial battle with Superboy-Prime.
His team, however, slowly fell apart over the course of the attack, as Robin managed to free Batgirl of his mind control serum and Raven convinced Duela Dent to switch sides. Slade and his remaining Titans subsequently faced off against both the current Titans and a group of old Titans led by Nightwing. Although he was defeated, he still managed to escape with the aid of Inertia. In the end, however, it was revealed to the readers that Slade's real mission to was provide his children with something he could never offer them a real family, in the form of the Teen Titans.
By attacking the Titans, he insured that Rose and Jericho would become more trusted by their associates, and thus grow closer to the team. The Outsiders and Final Crisis Recently, Deathstroke took credit for somehow twisting through unknown means the powers of Brion Markovthe half-brother of the original Terra, into the same powers as his traitorous sister's.
Using this leverage, Deathstroke offered to reverse the process only if Geo-Force became his own personal spy within the Justice League. Unfortunately for Deathstroke, Geo-Force alerted BatmanSupermanand Wonder Woman of Deathstroke's scheme which culminated in Geo-Force alerting the League that Deathstroke whose rivalry with Green Arrow has reached vendetta-level proportions planned on using an army of super-villains to crash Green Arrow and Black Canary 's wedding.
Weeks later, Geo-Force was tortured by Gorilla Grodd after the League was kidnapped by the Injustice League and ultimately transferred to Batman's newest incarnation of The Outsiders afterwards, robbing Deathstroke of his potential pawn.
He was one of the few villains significantly not deported to the Hell Planet during the events of Salvation Run. Deathstroke was, however, seen amongst the ranks of the reformed Secret Society of Super-Villains under the leadership of Libra during the events of Final Crisisalthough he does not appear to play as substantial a role in it as he did in the previous incarnation. Also during the Crisis, he is gravely injured with his own sword by Geo-Forcewhom he had been attempting to use as a weapon against the world's heroes the same way he had used Terra to infiltrate the Titans.
During the fight, the two are attacked by their deceased relatives Grant, Wade, and Adeline, who, along with Wintergreen, have all been reanimated as Black Lanterns.
Deathstroke and Rose are forced to work together and fight for their lives against the Black Lanterns. The two hopelessly fight the regenerating Black Lanterns until Jericho, cured from his earlier insanity, arrives and turns the tide of the fight. During the course of the battle, Deathstroke confesses to his children that part of the reason why he menaced the Teen Titans for so many years was that he felt that by forcing his children to hate him, they would have a chance of escaping the sorrow and pain a life with him would entail.
Just as Slade is overwhelmed and about to be killed, Jericho somehow uses his abilities to sever the connection between the Black Lanterns and their Black Lantern Power Ringspermanently sending them back to the grave.

After realizing that her mother was not reborn as a member of the Black Lantern Corps, Rose comes to the conclusion that she must somehow still be alive, and leaves after threatening to kill Slade if he tries to stop her.
Jericho chooses to stay with his father, reasoning that only Slade would have the courage to kill him if he were to ever return to madness. The Return of Bruce Wayne Deathstroke has been seen working with the League of Assassinscontrolling the body and physical actions of Robin due to an implant planted in his back by his mother, Talia al Ghulduring an operation.
Talia intended for Deathstroke to use Damian's body to kill Dick Grayson, the current incarnation of Batman. This attempt failed, because his enhanced abilities proved to be a strain on Damian's body. Grayson defeats Deathstroke by taking advantage of the two-way connection between him and Damian by using a taser on Damian, the resulting electric shock overwhelming Deathstroke's enhanced senses. He then tracks Slade down and attacks him in his hospital bed for controlling Damian and for the Chemo attack, informing Slade that what happened then is just a 'trailer' for what he will do later.
The team ambushes Ryan Choi in his home, and then battles him. This ends with Deathstroke driving his sword through Ryan's chest, killing him. He then gives the deceased hero's body to Dwarfstar. The attack is revealed to be a ruse crafted by Slade and Luthor in order to draw out a traitor on Luthor's security staff who is revealed to be a shape-shifting assassin named Facade. After the Titans capture Facade and turn him over to the scientists at LexCorpLuthor rewards Slade by examining technology that he had earlier ordered Tattooed Man and Cheshire to steal.
Slade claims that this will bring him one step closer to his true goal: He also succeeds in recruiting Arsenala former member of the Teen Titans and Justice League, into the team.
Shortly after inducting Arsenal into the team, Slade accepts a mission to rescue a child from a drug lord named Elijah. After discovering that Elijah is using the bodies of kidnapped children to create an addictive drug called Bliss, the Titans promptly kill the gangster and shut down his operation. As the Titans are preparing to return to the Labyrinth, Cheshire notices that Slade has tied up DJ Molecule, a powerful metahuman who was working for Elijah as a bodyguard.
When asked what he is doing with the young man, Slade cryptically responds by saying that he only accepted the mission in order capture Molecule for some unknown purpose. Afterward, Slade and his team arrive at a South Pacific Island to kill a cult leader named Drago over the arena production of blind warriors; however, his team, Arsenal, and Cheshire betray him, revealing that they had been working with Drago.
While Slade is held captive, Drago arrives and reveals to him that he is actually Slade's old friend, Corporal Daniel Rogers, who abandoned him during the civil war in Afghanistan.
Slade is then imprisoned along with Arsenal and begins to tell him about his past with Drago. Later, Drago takes a trip down memory lane with Slade, explaining how he lost his sight, and basically re-telling his origin and how it involved Jeremiah, right before he throws Slade beneath the complex to fend for his life against a crazed subhuman.
During the fights, Slade's left eye was restored due to his metahuman healing factor, and the Titans arrive to rescue him. Slade and the Titans break into Drago's mansion. Then, Slade drugs him so he cannot focus his telepathic abbilities. When Drago is defeated, Slade allows him to live and the Titans then leave from his island.
While returning to the labyrinth, Slade and the Titans are approached by The Atom and the Justice League attempt to arrest them for the murder of Ryan Choi.
Upon returning to the labyrinth, with his workers, Doctor Sivana and Doctor Impossible, Slade reveals to the Titans that their efforts support creation of a diabolical invention call the "Methuselah Device" for his dying son, Jericho.
The machine successfully heals Jericho, and Slade offers its abilities to all the Titans, offering to restore their deceased loved ones as payment for their services. All agree but Cinder, who does not want her brothers to live forever, as she claims to be doing. As the Titans come to blows, Deathstroke attempts to take Jericho and leave, but Jericho, disgusted at what his father did to achieve his restoration, takes over his body, intending to destroy first the Methuselah Device, then himself and Deathstroke.
DJ Molecule blasts Slade, knocking Jericho out of his body. Arsenal then attacks him for stealing the Titans legacy. Slade escapes and the Methuselah Device is destroyed by Cinder. Afterwards, Slade berates and becomes Deathstroke once more. In this new reality, Slade Wilson, better known as Deathstroke The Terminator, is the "scariest badass on the planet" a metahuman assassin whose speed, strength, and higher brain functions have all been enhanced. In addition, he is a master strategist.
In Moscow, Russia, all of these abilities come into play as he faces ten armed soldiers. Within moments, he has slain them all. Let it not be said that Deathstroke doesn't earn his pay. Later, Slade sits through a pitch by his liaison Christoph, who believes that the recent job offer the got will be well received.
He isn't sold on it, from Christoph's description, and when he discovers that he'll be working as part of a four-man team made up of mostly green up-and-comers, he is incredulous. Christoph goads him by suggesting that Slade can't handle the mission. In response, Slade flicks a paperclip through the air and slices a nearby fly in half, warning that the mission had better be worthwhile, for Christoph's sake.
Deathstroke's team is made up of April, a weapons expert; Quinn, the communications expert; and Hughes, the transport man.
When Deathstroke codenamed "Lovetap" for this mission arrives, the three young agents are intimidated by his size and demeanour, and he is far less impressed with them. Getting down to business, Christophe names their target: For politican and bureaucratic reasons, he can't be taken out on the ground, so it is the team's mission to take him out mid-air on his private plane, destroying his stockpile in the process.
The team uses its own plane to catch up to Bode's, and ignoring April's upgrades to his suit and weapons, Deathstroke leaps from the open bay doors and lands, gripping onto the side of Bode's fuselage with his sword.
Using his might alone, he rips the door off the side of the plane at miles per hour. Once inside, though, he discovers that Bode has not got a stockpile of weapons on board, but rather biological weapons; soldiers modified with Clayface DNA. Having difficulty killing them himself, he simply tosses them out the open door. Cornered, Jeffrey Bode reveals that the entire mission was engineered to get Deathstroke onto that plane in order to give him certain items within a suitcase.
Looking into the case, Deathstroke demands to know if he is to take the contents as a threat. Bode responds that it is merely a message. Having got what he came for, Deathstroke arms an explosive, and then leaps from the plane moments before it is detonated. A well-placed grapple pulls him back to his team.

Afterwards, Christoph and the three young agents celebrate their success. Christoph suggests that they could be offered more work in the future before asking Slade what he thinks of the up-and-coming team. He responds that there is no team, only competition and he doesn't work with the competition.
Turning, he unloads several rounds into the three young agents, killing them all, and leaving their bodies splayed about the floor. Angrily, Slade chastises Christoph for gathering a team of teenagers to work with him. Christoph desperately explains that the team was at the request of the client, and that they didn't believe that a man as old as Slade Wilson can cut it in the field.
Deathstroke responds that they have a lot of work to do in rebuilding his reputation, and leaves Christoph to clean up the bodies.
Powers and Abilities Powers Slade is enhanced due to a military procedure making him almost superhuman. Able to utilize 9 times more than a human's full brain capacity for information processing and sorting, Deathstroke's mind is virtually a computer built for strategy and problem-solving, one that works at optimal ability even when under stress and fatigue. Using his superior problem-solving skills, Deathstroke can work out a battle ahead of time for many possibilities and predict enemy movements and tactics after the battle has engaged by recalling and utilizing memorized mannerisms acquired through past experience on a moment's notice.
He is also ingenious in devising solutions against superior aspects of opponents, can observe and exploit, and can calculate distance, speed, and time at lightning speeds; his sense of timing is superb, bordering on perfection. Deathstroke possesses enhanced reflexes. The speed at which he reacts allows him to dodge fast-moving projectiles such as arrows and bullets.
Or rather, trying to bond, over grilling fresh fish and playing football. How very American of them. He used the chance to bond with his son to brutally murder another man, another father even. Tumblr Meanwhile Team Arrow is kept busy when a gunman attacks the council woman behind the anti-vigilante legislation.
The gun man turned out to be Vigilante, the masked avenger the team had dealt with throughout the previous season. Dinah is quick to follow the man and shatters his visor with her Canary Cry, only to reveal that man behind the mask is her former lover and partner Vincent Sobel. While the man was someone that had been previously mentioned, it was not someone we would likely have kept in mind or wanted back for that matteras he seems remarkably unremarkable.
As we learn in the episode, he was exposed to dark matter as well, which makes him a fellow meta-human. Vincent has the ability to heal, which he demonstrates by surviving a gunshot to the head later on.
When Dinah confronts him not just about his masked alter ego, but also about why he wants to kill the council woman, he gives her a very Oliver-Queen season-one-ish answer about how he needs to fulfill his mission. It feels like Arrow has started recycling characters this season. Tumblr But Vigilante is not the only threat for the team this week. Agent Samanda Watson continues her vendetta against Oliver Queen by targeting the people closest to him.
She asks John, Felicity, and Rene for private conversations. She is closing in on their secret, and everyone knows it.
