ARROW “PROMISES KEPT”

 

Oliver makes a big decision

Episode 6×06 “Promises Kept” —  As Slade (guest star Manu Bennett) continues to uncover clues about his son’s last few years, Oliver (Stephen Amell) makes a big decision.

Meanwhile, the Green Arrow (David Ramsey) leads the team into battle against “The Dragon,” a villain who is stealing valuable tech in Star City.

Antonio Negret directed the episode written by Oscar Balderrama & Rebecca Bellotto. 

Air Date: Thursday, November 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) on the CW.  

 

Last week on Arrow: ‘Deathstroke Returns”

Whenever a show takes an infamous villain and makes an attempt to turn them into a good guy, it can go one of two ways. They could go the route of Fate of the Furious from earlier this year, which saw Jason Statham’s character take a bizarre turn towards heroism that flat out ignores all the evil things he did in prior films. Or they could go the route of Captain Cold on Legends, someone who genuinely does have a heart of gold, but got severely corrupted in life and is trying to find their back.

It’d be easy to lump Slade Wilson in either category. After all, while he was genuine friend to Oliver on Lian Yu, and saved his life on several occasions, there’s no denying that Slade’s also been responsible for some of the truly worst moments of Oliver’s life, directly or not. The Mirakuru may have messed with his brain and drove him mad, but that sort of reasoning only goes so far. I don’t blame anyone who saw Slade’s heel turn at the end of last season to be a massive stretch; cured or no, Slade was still a pretty dickish guy when Oliver first met him, just one with two eyes. Even Diggle and Felicity don’t think it’s a good idea, especially since Slade left them on Lian Yu to get nearly blown up.
