We're not above mistakes, Koku. Feel free to point them out, but perhaps with less judgment.
Perhaps vengeance was the wrong word. But avenging her sister's death by taking a stand (not her place) against injustice and protecting her father (for the time being until he's able to handle the loss) was what I was trying to say, if I wasn't clear. The burial scene drove her to the last one when she was both cuddling the memory of her sister and looking at the jacket, ready for the next step in her journey.
I do not like Gotham. It's too dark and over the top cartoon for me. I don't feel like I would know any of the characters other than Jim and Barbara, and if I can't place myself in a story I lose interest. That doesn't mean they can't be fantastical, but understandable. Gotham isn't to me.
I think they've always had this vision of their Black Canary going through this journey. Something similar to what the others experienced on the island but in the present. It hasn't been pretty, but who hasn't experienced crap in their lives? I'm giving the writers latitude. Plus, I don't think we're done seeing Caity -- she doesn't have to disappear out of back stories. Maybe Oliver ran into her again.
It felt fine knowing what was coming, because I expect to be blindsided again at any moment!
I agree with your assessment of Laurel in this episode. Expecting her to be strong at that moment, after her sister fell to her death in front of her (the second time she died to her), while already worrying about her father's heart is just too much. I think people have very strong opinions of her because they fell in love with Caity, and that's fine, but this Katie needs to be allowed to grow as well. She didn't burst onto the scene kick ass and that makes her story much different. She has to grow in Starling like her sister (and Oliver) did on the island. Remember when Ollie couldn't even kill his own dinner? Growth is good.
Aha! Thank you. I used to visit the city a lot but it's been years.
Malcolm Jr, is that you? Ahem.
Reviews, by nature, are subjective. They're opinion based, A recap can be objective, because it's usually recounting the action without unnecessary embellishment.
We're not above making the occasional mistake. It has been corrected. Thanks for pointing it out.
