Another great Arrow episode tonight. With some great Easter Eggs to the DC Universe too (i.e., Ted Kord & Kord Industries). Next week it looks like things are about to get a little more personal for Oliver as Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) has stepped from the shadows to exact some revenge.
In the episode titled, “The Promise,” Oliver is shocked when he learns that Slade has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara 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.
The second half of the second season of Arrow has been on fire and is showing no signs of slowing down. If you haven’t been watching it, you are missing out on on a really fun show. Look for next new episode of Arrow on Wednesday, March 5th at 8pm EST on The CW.
