Arrow Season 6 Episode 6 Recap: Promises Kept

by at .

A new villain emerged on Arrow Season 6 Episode 6 and made it clear he was intent on making some changes to the criminal underworld of Star City. 

The new addition was Kirk Acevedo who was playing DC comics villain Richard Dragon. On the CW hit, his character goes by the name of Ricardo Diaz. 

Slade and His Son

The new character had an ominous link to Diggle who was still keeping up the charade as the latest iteration of the Green Arrow. Diggle was still struggling with drugs, and it turned out his drug supplier was Ricardo. 

Diggle realized that Ricardo posed a threat to team Arrow, so he turned to his wife Lyla and told her all the details about his drug taking. 

Diggle supplied the team with Ricardo's whereabouts and was forced to watch the drugs go up in flames. Diggle later confessed all to his team and apologized for keeping them in the dark.

Meanwhile, Slade continued to reconnect with his son after being reunited with each other. Slade decided to join his son on a risky mission, one that Oliver opposed to. 

Slade's son then wanted his father to attack Oliver and finally take him out of the equation, but then Slade turned the tables and sided with his former enemy. 

The newly formed duo went after Kane before he and his band of misfits could attack the water supply. Slade and Kane had to head-to-head in an emotional battle.

Slade tried to tell his son that he was only killing because he was high on mirakuru, but the kid revealed that he witnessed Slade kill during a camping trip. 

Slade said goodbye to Oliver once again as he noted it was time for him to get some results with his children. He wanted to be a good father for once in his life. 

We also got to see some flashbacks of Slade being picked up from Lian Yu seven years before the current events. 

A New Team Arrow

Slade trained with ASIS but struggled to move on from what happened to Shado. Slade then murdered the whole ASIS crew after the ghost of Shado told him to avenge her death. 

Something tells us Slade is going to find himself in some more trouble with the principal characters before long. His sons are wild.
