The CW Releases A Synopsis For ARROW ‘The Promise’: Big Things Happening With SLADE


deathstroke bannerArrow is on a break until February 26th due to the Olympics, but when it returns we’ll see The Arrow (Stephen Amell) facing off against Robert Knepper‘s Clock King. While we wait to see how that plays out, The CW has released the synopsis for the episode for episode 15 airing March 5th. Entitled The Promise, the episode seems to take place largely in flashbacks to Oliver‘s time on the island. There will be some big developments in the present though. It appears that Oliver will find out that Slade “Deathstroke” Wilson (Manu Bennett) is very much alive and in Starling City. We know episode 18 is called Deathstroke, so we might be seeing some teases at the big battle we’ll undoubtedly be seeing. What do you think about the synopsis? Are you ready to see Oliver and Slade come face-to-face?

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. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski.
