Arrow Extended Preview: Slade is Coming for Oliver

by Clarissa / March 5, 2014

ArrowSlade Wilson is shaping up to be this season’s big bad on Arrow. We know that he was injected with the mirakuru back on the island, but the flashbacks are still working to fill in the blanks as to why Oliver believed he died all those years ago. Now he has brazenly walked into the Queen mansion and is declaring war on Oliver.

Here’s what we know: on the island, Sara, Slade and Oliver are getting ready to take over Ivo’s freighter, but Sara will tell Oliver that he must kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade the truth about Shado’s death. As Slade’s rage grows due to the effects of the drug, Oliver realizes that he could turn on his friends, especially if he learned the truth. In the present, Slade has made his intentions to punish Oliver through his loved ones known. As Oliver focuses all of his energy on the upcoming battle with his former friend, he’ll start pushing away his family and friends in order to keep them safe.

The CW has released a new extended promo for Arrow that focuses on the coming battle between Oliver and Slade. Watch it below and tune in to Arrow on Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
