Just watched the producers preview and the only question I have is, how in the world can Laurel of all people fight three LoA members at the same time? Diggle being able to fight them (without guns) is questionable, but Laurel? A person who couldn’t take down a common street thug last week? That’s just perplexing.
Her fighting just took me out of what looks like a great scene with great stunts. I wish it didn’t, but I honestly can’t believe it. And I know Oliver once said it’s not about skill, it’s about heart… But with with the LoA it’s like asking someone to successfully jump across a 20ft wide river without falling in which is just impossible. Heart matters, but when it comes to dealing with assassins who’ve been trained for most of their lives, skills matters just as much. And even though Laurel has trained with Nyssa for about a month or two, it still isn’t enough for me to believe that she’d gain enough skill to go against the LoA members.
Not saying that she shouldn’t be there, but I wish the writers would at least try to make her ascension to BC more believable.
