The writers of Arrow never cease to amaze me. The amount of betrayal just continues to grow within each episode. Just when you think Oliver is finally on the right track, the writers flip the whole story upside down.
Oliver never seems to learn as he continues to hang his only friend and partner, Diggle, to dry. Diggle’s brother’s killer, Deadshot, has been developing over a few episodes and we have finally gotten to know the extent of the hate Diggle feels for him. You would think that Oliver would drop everything for his partner, but instead he’s continues to drop everything for Laurel.
In past episodes, we saw Tommy joining his fathers business. Oliver’s secret is too much for him to handle and his struggle with self-worth is ended once he packs his bags and leaves Laurel. Will his jealousy and hate for Oliver grow? Oliver has already pushed him into his father’s arms, something that would have been thought to be impossible at the beginning of the season. What is Tommy entrusts his information in the wrong hands, such as his father’s.
I don’t blame Diggle for walking out on Oliver, just like I don’t blame Tommy. I just hope that Oliver will do something in the following episodes to earn both of their trust back before something happens that he regrets.

Steven McQueen Leaving TVD for Arrow?
Is Steven McQueen leaving The Vampire Diaries?! Maybe. Possibly. Actually, probably not, so no one panic!
Steven McQueen, who plays Jeremy Gilbert on the hit CW show, has been campaigning to play Nightwing on Arrow, another CW drama.

The two were hanging out and supporting hockey’s L.A Kings for the NHL finals. The photo does however include #nightwing in the caption, which makes it clear that McQeen is not giving up on his dreams anytime soon!
Nightwing is a DC comics character who is a later incarnation of Batman’s sidekick Robin. As of right now, Nightwing hasn’t even been introduced on Arrow mainly because there hasn’t been room for him on the show’s complicated storyline. No word on whether the producer plan to introduce him in season 3 either. Maybe this is already a done casting and McQueen is subtly trying to give us all a hint?
Or maybe he would be better trying his efforts at the new Fox show, Gotham, which focuses on a time before Batman existed, although the producers have said the show is set so far in the past, Nightwing might have not even existed yet.

Arrow: “Suicide Squad” Preview
Arrow: The Promise (02 x 15)
We come back into Arrow right where we left off last week. Slade is in Oliver’s house and he’s getting pretty friendly with Moira Queen. Turns out that he’s now making donations to Moira’s mayoral campaign. Well played, Slade Wilson, well played. Slade even digs the knife in deeper when he suggested opening a bottle of rum and having a drink toward “friendship”.
Normally I’m not a big fan of the flashbacks as you’ve learned from my reviews of Season One, but this episodes flashbacks were actually crucialto the storyline. Oliver and Slade were brothers on the island. Slade taught Oliver everything he knew, especially when it came to the bow and arrow. Which puts in perspective how dangerous Slade actually is.
While trying to take over the cargo ship, Oliver allowed for himself to be caught by Ivo and his men and thrown into a cell. Ivo, not being agentle man, puts Ollie in his torture chair. After realizing that Oliver won’t give up the coordinates of his friends easily, he injects him with a truth serum. The location of Slade and Sara flows easily from his lips the moment the serum goes through his system. No, Ollie, No!! But wait, another flashback, Sara created a serum that would fight off the truth serum and give Oliver a clear head. He gave Ivo the wrong information and now Sara and Slade can come take over the ignorant ship. After a long fight, Ivo lets it slip that Oliver is the reason that Shado is dead, that Ollie chose Sara over Shado. The anger that flashes in Slade’s eyes is mystifying. His “brother” betrayed him and is the reason the woman that he loves is dead. Slade turns on Oliver and Ivo escapes. More truth starts coming out when Slade reveals that he kept the Mirakura. He makes Oliver a promise that he’s not going to end his life until he has known complete and utter despair.
Back in Starling City we find Roy training with Sara, Diggle and Felicity. He looks pretty hopeless. When Oliver alerts them that Slade is in his house, they all devise a plan. Diggle sets up outside the mansion to take a shot at Slade as he leaves, Roy heads into the house to get Thea and Moira out of the way just in case anything goes wrong, and Sara is just ready to fight. Everyone is there except for Felicity.
Just before Slade leaves, he tells Oliver that he made a promise a while back, and he’s now here to fulfill it. Diggles goes to take his shot and someone comes behind him and knocks him out. What?!! Slade gets away free.
Moira takes Slade’s side when Oliver goes back in to talk to his mother. She can’t overlook the way he was treating her benefactor and if that’s the way he’s going to act, maybe he shouldn’t live with them anymore. Bold move, Moira. Especially since a few months ago, you tried leveling the city.
The last scene shows Slade watching several video screens. His trip to the house wasn’t for nothing. The tour Moira gave him provided plenty of time to plant cameras throughout the mansion.
Slade is set on making Oliver pay, but who will be caught in the crossfire? And who knocked out Diggle? Could it be Felicity? What do you think? Tweet @brittanydebaltz and keep the conversation going.
