ARROW S2, E15 Description Released; "The Promise"

The CW has sent out the official description for the fifteenth episode in season two of Arrow (which airs on March 5th), and as well as revealing some shocking developments in Starling City, it sounds like we should also expect some major developments on the island. Check it out!

THE TURNING POINT — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is shocked when he learns that Slade (Manu Bennett) has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) 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. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski.

The last part of this season is going to be insane! I especially can't wait for episodes 16 & 18!
dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 6:50 PM
this show leaves me in suspense
katzb724 - 2/12/2014, 6:51 PM
@annodommini - It would make no sense for Oliver to be able to even get close to shooting Slade's eye yet.. We have no proof other then one shot to Fryers hand that Oliver is becomming competent with a bow. He is also no where near as competent at figthing to be a match for non-Mirakuru slade let alone a super-powered Slade.
dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 6:52 PM
oliver could just stab him with the arrow
katzb724 - 2/12/2014, 7:00 PM
@annodimini - I too have always thought that, but still this early in th e island story we have no reason to believe Olli could do anything to slade. We have not seen him even training since Yao Fe died.
ThePresidentGaming - 2/12/2014, 7:00 PM
When Oliver promised to free the prisoners & come back for them. This is the episode where they try to take the ship. Also, if you noticed in the first episode the ship was in half when Diggle and Felicity parachute there 6 months after the undertaking.
ThePresidentGaming - 2/12/2014, 7:01 PM
First episode in season 2.

The plan will go south & they end up killing Ivo but survive.
drunkenjunk - 2/12/2014, 7:02 PM
Kgbeast gonna be in this one?
DrunkenNukem - 2/12/2014, 7:08 PM
@dcnoob you are not trolling for asking that man.....the watchmen its my favorite znyder movie...
dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 7:12 PM
watchmen is underrated
DrunkenNukem - 2/12/2014, 7:13 PM
deathstroke its more powerful an skilled fighter than green arrow....and im glad cw series is making justice to the character...

dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 7:14 PM
the deathstroke from smallville was not well depicted
katzb724 - 2/12/2014, 7:20 PM

I guess..
drunkenjunk - 2/12/2014, 7:21 PM
@ doesn't mean Ollie can't catch him slipping.
dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 7:23 PM
haha lol
DrunkenNukem - 2/12/2014, 7:24 PM
@dcnoob...was very underrated because GA and film critics dont know shit about Watchmen...and Znyder made it very close to the comicboock...
DrunkenNukem - 2/12/2014, 7:25 PM
@AnnoDomini...jeez that looked more like Slade´s grandpa or something...
dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 7:27 PM
lol @duke
jamesbrando3 - 2/12/2014, 7:27 PM
i wonder which episodes are the ones the producers said they couldn't even name because the spoilers in the title were too big...
dcnoob122 - 2/12/2014, 7:27 PM
that is true @Anno
DCeddie - 2/12/2014, 7:46 PM
I echo the "stupid Olympics" comment...
Minghagz - 2/12/2014, 8:03 PM
Hopefully we'll have a GA ICON before the next episode. This show always has me at the edge of my seat

SentinelofLiberty - 2/12/2014, 8:05 PM
My biggest pet peeve with the series...Yao Fe and Shado barely trained Oliver. Slade trained him a little, but not enough. How does Ollie go from where he is now, island-time, to the dead eye archer and master hand to hand combatant?
gamecreatorjj - 2/12/2014, 8:06 PM
@jamesbrando I'm guessing the nightwing one and pherhaps one where grundy returns
PenditaMarah - 2/12/2014, 8:18 PM

ollie will be all alone is the island and he learns how to survive in the island.that's why he become expert in what he become now.
PenditaMarah - 2/12/2014, 8:18 PM
*all alone in the island....shit,i misstyped
batmanvsuperman - 2/12/2014, 8:24 PM
@Katzb724 thank your the only one who agrees with me Oliver is not ready or trained to do that to Slade if he do just stab him in the eye it will not feel right he needs to work for it I want to see a fight not some lucky stab to the eye he needs more training
jamesbrando3 - 2/12/2014, 8:26 PM
-okay guys lets do some investigative analysis here and try and figure this one out. So one of the producers had this to say on Feb 5:

Fans of Arrow will surely love the latest titillating tease from Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim. While speaking to Newsarama, the comic book writer shared, "I will say that we have a crazy number of DC's funny, there's stuff that will be happening in the middle of this season that we haven't announced yet, that if people think we've done a lot of DC Universe stuff now it pales in comparison to where we're headed. It's really going to be kicked up to a ridiculous degree....There's two episodes in a row, where we're keeping the titles secret, because both episodes will just blow people's minds."

Now the next episodes, including 02X18 which was recently announced are:
02X14 - 'Time of Death' (Clock King)
02X15 - 'The Promise' (Slade Wilson)
02X16 - 'Suicide Squad' (Suicide Squad)
02X17 - 'Birds of Prey' (Huntress)
02X18 - 'Deathstroke' (Nyssa al' Ghul)

So assuming there are 23 episodes total this season, matching the first season, there are still 5 more episodes to come that are unnamed. So I'm thinking yes they're after episode 18 but maybe they're earlier somehow and two of these named episodes are fake outs. I really like how blunt the titles are this season, shows how focused they are in introducing all these classic DCU elements. 'League of Assassins', 'Heir to the Demon'... Anyways can't wait to find out what other surprises Arrow has up its sleeve this season!
jamesbrando3 - 2/12/2014, 8:53 PM

I can't find the interview where Nyssa's return episode was discussed but I'm fairly certain its episode 18 along with the return of Isabel Rochev which IS confirmed...

-Isabel's return trip: What has Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) been up to since viewers last saw her? The businesswoman, who has been on the periphery as of late, will make a return appearance in the 18th episode of the season. "We'll find out what she's been up to," Guggenheim teased.

If I was Oliver, I would risk telling Slade the truth.

As angry as Slade is, he'll be even more angry if he finds out the truth from someone else.

He'll think Oliver was trying to hide the truth from him. He did his best to save Shado. And he loved her too.

@SentinelofLiberty He will be on the island for three more years. Stephen Amell said the flashbacks would last up to season 5.
Firgosaurus - 2/12/2014, 10:38 PM
But this is 23 year old Oliver Geoff, he isn't exactly the smartest dude on that island.
Scorpion8125 - 2/12/2014, 10:51 PM
I sh!t myself with happiness.

This show just keeps getting better.

Now the sad reality. As we all know:

None of these TV peeps will likely EVER see the light on the big screen.

But, if(BIG IF) the B vs S movie is a blockbuster with a JLA followup, who knows?

I think it is truly possible(25% & rising?) that Amell could be Green Arrow in a JLA movie. This is NOT a Tom Welling fantasy thing. Amell can bring it. Welling would have had to carry the whole DCMU on his back, which never could have happened. But AMELL AS A (great) supporting character would be dynamite on the big screen.


And bring on the full badness/greatness of Deathstroke.

Seems like a description of a different episode. Headline says 'The Promise' but the description paragraph says 'The Turning Point.'
