I'm not considering Mirakuru powers. They were given a serum that was cooked up and injected which is more realistic than powers. I say realistic as Oliver dons a green hood and becomes invisible and tiny Sara can kick anyone's ass. It's relative, I guess!
Hi Hank's sister! Hank n Heather. Perfect. Honeymoon avatar? ;-) Is laurel worse than Blood? What's your recipe for least favorite? Agree she won't forgive easily. She can't even accept a glass of water for goodness sakes!
I tend to think that the more fans want someone to die, the less likely it is to happen. Laurel as Raven would work, but I know better than to place bets. Lol
What's unique about Sara is if she dies in the present, she'll still have a story in the past that can be told simultaneously. Someone has to know what she was up to and if, for example, Laurel would take over as Canary, then she could learn all about her sister and they would both remain on the show. I'd still like for them both to have a role. It's so difficult to want so much!
I know Oliver had Thea call Laurel a cab, but he didn't give her Laurel's keys before he walked off to call Sara. I know it's silly, but a keyless drunk Laurel would be ineffective outside her apartment. Lol
I'm not sure where you're getting the serial killer concept or the comparison to the governor. Serial killer because he was programmed to assassinate beasts by Cat's father? How does the governor fit in?

They've made it very clear that Laurel is quite skilled in hand to hand combat after taking self defense classes. I'm willing to be when it comes down it, there's a lot more we don't know about her and what she's been doing while we haven't been looking.
Have faith in these writers. While the guest starring bad guys of the week have been somewhere disappointing at times, have they let you down yet when it comes to a major character's story arc? They know what they're doing -- whatever their plan for Laurel might be.
I thought I could rewatch to get a better understanding of what I missed... only to see my DVR only recorded 24 minutes of the latest episode. Oh well. It's a tricky show.
I was very proud of them for letting Katherine die, as it genuinely seemed as though SHE was going to let that happen. If they had done that, the episode would have been a worthy 100th. It will only be memorable now if they choose to let Elena die. Yes, that's right, writers -- you chose to let Katherine live, now let the doppelganger die -- THAT's a WOW moment. After a couple of episodes, we won't miss her whiny ass anyway.
I do wish the movie and TV worlds would work more closely together as a general rule. There still seems to be a stigma that TV is a red-headed step child, when in fact their stories and writing surpass movies on a consistent basis and movie actors are making the move to TV every day.
The more I think about it, the more I want the Lance sisters on opposite sides of the Arrow. Anyone out there know of a baddie Laurel could be? I'll research, but I'm throwing it out there anyway!
