The Promise last edited by magicman620 on 03/30/20 08:10AM View full history

THE TURNING POINT — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is shocked when he learns that Slade (Manu Bennett) has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo (guest star Dylan Neal), Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado. Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade’s growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins.

Promises Are Like Debts 0

With Slade Wilson revealing himself in the Queen Mansion, it is only natural to juxtapose a plot with inherent tension with one that is all about the emotional release of battle, the siege of the Amazo. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim described “The Promise” as “designed … to be like a sequel to episode 14("The Odyssey") last year, where we flipped the paradigm and spent the majority of our story time on the island with Oliver and Slade.” Like Community and its ...
