No. Not true. I can't hate her, she's brand new. I think her character is being written poorly right off the bat, however.

You have to know that I'm from Pittsburgh -- once you're surrounded by accents like this one, others become more difficult to determine! ;-)

It's couple specific. There is no right answer to their problems because we are not them. They were scared shitless when they witnessed what went down with Mateo's parents. That means it's not best for them. Not right now. The fact Neil stayed and, as everyone is so quick to point about, became an escort to discover what was going on with his wife instead of talking to her hints that he felt culpable in some way. After all, he just had his big epiphany. If it was huge to him, he knows it was impacting his marriage. Is he at fault because Grace had an affair? No. But do they share the fault for not making their marriage and they love a priority? Indeed. He knows that and is willing to work with it. Why isn't anyone willing to allow him that decision like they allow him the decision to cheat to discover what it was Grace was looking for with Simon? Neil is her husband and isn't as angry with her as viewers. That has to say something about them as a couple.

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.
