Deathstroke Absence Until Season 5
Deathstroke did not appear until season 5 due to the restrictions placed by DC on the character. Furthermore, DC had plans for their character for Slade Wilson. Therefore, DC stopped the CW from using the character.
Moreover, DC did not want to see Deathstroke appear again in the series. But Guggenheim was able to convince DC to allow Deathstroke’s part in Arrow’s Season 5. Also, considering how much fans loved Deathstroke’s performance in the series, they sure wanted him to comeback.
