The next episode of "Arrow" looks to be pretty much what we've been waiting for ever since it was revealed that Slade (Manu Bennett) was in Starling City, and the new sneak preview the CW released Wednesday, Feb. 27, makes the wait until it airs seem that much longer.
This next "Arrow" episode will see Oliver (Stephen Amell), Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) preparing to take over the freighter from Ivo (Dylan Neal), and in order to make sure Slade doesn't find out the truth about Shado's death, Sara tells Oliver he needs to kill Ivo. Oliver may be feeling guilty, but he knows what the Mirakuru is doing to Slade, and his growing rage makes him unpredictable. He could turn on them if he thought Oliver was to blame, and so Oliver agrees to kill Ivo, beginning the battle.
Meanwhile, in the present, at the very end of "Time of Death," Oliver got the shock of his life when he discovered that Moira (Susanna Thompson) was meeting with Slade. Check out the slideshow for the promotional photos the CW has released from this episode to see more of Slade with the Queen family and Sara.
"Five years ago, I made you a promise. Well, I'm here to fulfill it," Slade promises at the beginning of the promo for "The Promise." While Sara's worried because Slade is going to kill Oliver and his entire family unless they stop him, Slade does have a plan and he does tell Oliver, "Not yet, kid." But Sara is going to find herself in some serious trouble at some point in this episode too. Watch the promo for glimpses of what's coming up both in the past (and Slade is angry on the island) and the present with Slade next week.
"Arrow" season 2 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. What do you think of the episode 15 "The Promise" promo and photos?
