In exchange for his help in stopping Chase, Oliver offers Slade information on the whereabouts of his son. Grant Wilson appears in the DC's Legends of Tomorrow (2016) episode "DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Star City 2046 (2016)" and, rather than his comic book moniker The Ravager, has taken on his father's mantle as Deathstroke.

In early April 2017, Stephen Amell and Marc Guggenheim posted on social media that Manu Bennett would be returning as Deathstroke, including images of the masked character appearing on set. Bennett posted replies stating that he was not returning for Arrow because he was filming his own series, "Shannara" in Auckland, New Zealand.. Guggenheim later posted that fans would be "hearing the voice" of Bennett as Deathstroke, implying that a body double wearing Deathstroke's mask would be used for filming, with Bennett providing only the voice of the character.

Oliver's resistance teams consists of himself, Malcolm Merlyn, Nyssa Al Ghul (Katrina Law), Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) and Digger Harkness (Nick E. Tarabay) in the fight against Chase. Katrina, Manu and Nick were all series regulars on the television show "Spartacus: Vengeance." Ironically enough Stephen Amell was in the running to be a replacement for Andy Whitfield in the titular role, but he lost to Liam McIntyre. Had he gotten the role, having the other 3 actors follow him into battle would have been a possible occurrence.
