Here is my best explanation:

'update display?' is the definition.
'refresh' can be an answer for 'update' (thesaurus). I'm unsure of the 'display?' bit.

'recalled slave interrupting that woman' is the wordplay.
'recalled' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.
'slave' becomes 'serf' (I've seen this before).
'interrupting' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'that woman' becomes 'her' (I've seen this before**).
'serf' inserted into 'her' is 'hserfer'.
'hserfer' written backwards gives 'REFRESH'.

'to' is the link.
