In this next "Arrow" episode, Oliver (Stephen Amell) focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with Slade (Manu Bennett) now that he knows he's alive and is ready to make good on that "promise" of his to destroy his loved ones. That means he pushes Sara (Caity Lotz) away to protect her when she tries to help.

Meanwhile, Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. recruit Diggle (David Ramsey) to stop a warlord (Lee Majdoub) from his time in Afghanistan, and while he agrees to help, that's before he meets the rest of the team: Deadshot (Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (Sean Maher). Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team, explaining the world is complicated. But when the mission takes a dangerous turn, Diggle must make a difficult decision.

The "Suicide Squad" promo offers a look at Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad, as well as some fun times for Diggle. Also, Oliver's a bit busy with Deathstroke and a "brotherhood" of his own. Plus, check out the promotional photos the CW has released for this episode in the slideshow.

"Arrow" season 2 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. "Suicide Squad" airs March 19. What do you think of the episode 16 promo?
