"Arrow" episode 215, "The Promise," for which the CW released promotional photos on Tuesday, Feb. 25, is all about Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Slade (Manu Bennett), past and present, going off of what has been released so far about the episode – and it sounds like it's going to be a good one.
In this upcoming "Arrow" episode, in the present, Oliver is shocked to find out that Slade is in Starling City. But how much of what Slade has been up to in Starling City will he know about by the end of the episode?
As for what happened back on the island, Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter, but Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo (Dylan Neal) to keep him from telling Slade the truth of what happened with Shado. Oliver may be feeling guilty, but he knows that Slade's growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him very unpredictable and he'd likely turn on them if he thought Oliver was responsible for her death. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo, and the battle begins.
The slideshow of "The Promise" photos offers a look at Roy (Colton Haynes) with Canary and Diggle and Slade with the Queen family and Roy, which could only mean trouble – and why do he and Moira (Susanna Thompson) look chummy? – in the present, and Oliver possibly facing trouble from The Butcher (Ronald Selmour), Ivo and Slade on the island. Does Slade find out the truth on the island in this episode? Could Ivo tell him before they can execute their plan?
"Arrow" season 2 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. "The Promise" airs March 5. What do you think of these episode 15 photos?
