I wanna talk about this amazing shot really quick
First, the fastest MLB pitch on record as of today belongs to Adrolis Chapman at 105.1 mph (169.1 km/h).
It’s probably safe to say that Ezor’s knife is traveling at or a little over this speed when it’s being hurtled at Keith in ep 6. That’s a pretty fast moving target. That’s roughly 47 meters per second, more if you want to take into account that her knife is lighter than a baseball and probably traveling faster. Let’s just say 50 for good measure. That’s still pretty fast. That’s roughly covering the distance of half a football field in one second.
Second I want to talk about skeet shooting. Skeet shooting is a firearm sport where clay targets are shot out of the air with a firearm. The targets fly at roughly 45 mph (20~mps). That’s less than half the speed of the flying knife. Additionally, skeet shooting is performed with a shotgun, which fires out a spray of projectiles, increasing the chances of hitting the target.
Lance not only shoots the knife out of the air at over twice the speed of a skeet target (and possibly faster than the world record MLB pitch), but with a single linear shot. And that’s not even factoring in Keith, who Lance, on top of this already amazing feat, avoids easily.
And THATS not even factoring in this he does all this UNDER PRESSURE AND AT A MOMENTS NOTICE! They should call him Quick Draw McClain!
Lance’s accuracy with his weapon is amazing in and of itself. It’s clear he has had prior training and possesses an incredibly keen eye. And it requires a lot more skill than I think people give him credit for.
Lance IS a sharpshooter. That’s his thing and he’s damn good at it.
