Arrow fans have known for a while that Slade is alive, is behind a lot of the evil things currently happening in Starling City, and has a burning desire to get revenge on Oliver. But it won’t be long until Oliver knows this as well.
In “The Promise” Oliver learns that Slade has come to Starling City, leaving him shocked to see his old friend and new enemy. 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.”
