"Christoper Priest is an amazing guy whose work I’ve admired for a long time, and he has an incredibly keen take on how Deathstroke works. At any point whether there was a doubt how to handle things, I would talk to him and we would sort of make it work because he had a very, very clear view of the way things would work. I think ultimately it could have been much harder to do, but it was a real pleasure to do because we got in step with each other and understood how he operated. I think this is in terms of villains pulling shocks and surprises, the idea that he’s almost not operating as a villain, he’s coming to them almost more openly than he’s ever done before and say I’ve got a problem that I wish to solve and you can help me do it makes it, I think that’s why it’s a very compelling story." - Dan Abnett

With Priest on board, I'd have figured Slade to say something less overtly moustache-twirly than "you'll all pay for it."

But "Yeah, you got them all..." is good, though.

Abnett wrote the script for this issue.

While Priest took part in planning the overall story with the others, I doubt he gets to write Deathstroke's dialogue.

Also a major plot point from D' own book gets resolved in a Titans issue - Couldn't they have waited and then let Priest handle it

Yeah, but as a common courtesy I'd imagine they'd run the Deathstroke bits past Priest for approval first. Though with how quickly the chapters of the crossover are coming out, it's possible there wouldn't have been the time, I suppose.

"Also a major plot point from D' own book gets resolved in a Titans issue - Couldn't they have waited and then let Priest handle it"

Considering how far long they've been planning the crossover -- at least since the issue where Deathstroke was reading about a "new Flash" in prison -- that major plot point wouldn't have wound up being resolved in Titans unless that had been the plan. If Priest wanted otherwise, there was more than enough time to plan things out differently, whether by ending the last Deathstroke arc an issue earlier or by saving the whole plot for after the crossover or whatever. So I doubt this is happening because of a crossover blindsiding anyone or bad timing but because it's actually part of the plan.

Hey, no worries, I know this is Abnett - that's why 'with Priest on board' instead of 'with Priest writing'. For the rest, I'm with tree on the collaboration-checking stuff.
