The Promise

This one was a long time coming. Any fan of the series obviously has been waiting to see how Oliver and Slade's friendship would turn to bitter enemies. We all knew Slade's motivation (being one royally p*ssed off dude upon learning that Ollie was "responsible" for Shado's death). But we have had to sit through a lot of back story and buildup for the inevitable face off. The entire episode is more flashback as we see the events leading up to Slade turning on his "friend".

We get a few punches thrown here and there, but the big beatdown doesn't happen.....not yet anyway. Slade takes over the ship and is running things on his own terms and he has Oliver locked up as his prisoner. Sara is now stranded back on the Island with a handful of prisoners that have escaped. That should be an interesting thing to see played out. The episode was solid, but we are going to have to wait a bit longer before we finally get to see THE fight between Ollie and Slade. One of the cooler things about how this episode was structured was seeing an out of control Slade completely losing it during the flashbacks, juxtaposed with current day scenes of a calm, cool and calculated Slade in the presense of the Queen family. We know he is dangerous and that's why the scenes work incredibly well.
