Storyline

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, 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. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Dr. Anthony Ivo: It's harder than it looks, isn't it? Killing an unarmed man.
Oliver Queen: It seemed pretty easy when you murdered Shado.
Dr. Anthony Ivo: I didn't murder her, Oliver.
Oliver Queen: Ivo, you shot her in the head.
Dr. Anthony Ivo: I gave you a choice! You chose Sara. You blame me, but that's because you can't face your own guilt. I loaded the bullets, yes, I pulled the trigger, but you... you aimed the gun. And you hold yourself responsible. Don't you?
Oliver Queen: Yes. But that doesn't mean I won't kill you.

Probably the best episode since 'Three Ghosts' and 'Sacrifice'
7 March 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

After weeks of starving without decent Island flashbacks, 'The Promise' gave us exactly that, and then some. Stephen Amell's social media account posted a trailer for this episode and also said that it's the best episode yet, and I can assure you, the hype is truly met. This was an excellent episode which answered a lot of questions, but not all of it. After last week's cliffhanger, we pick up right where we left off. And that was basically the whole mood for the present day. Tense. But the flashbacks, really served it's purpose. The freighter raid was highly action packed, the pacing was superb and the way the episode ended was exceptional.

*Dialogue: Very good *Pacing: Excellent *Action: Excellent *Drama: Good *Story: Excellent

Season two of Arrow is proving to be spectacular on it's own merits. Slade Wilson's character is quickly coming to life and Team Arrow is developing along nicely. If you need a reason to watch this show, it's for Deathstroke, the one and only. Episode rating: 10/10
