    Loved It? Hated It? What did you think of "Second Chances?"

    So, what did you think?

    They really screwed Katie Cassidy over big time with this episode.

    They pulled a Henry James Olsen of Smallville with Laurel. So basically she's a 4 season red herring then.

    Dinah Drake? Laurel and Sara's mother is also named Dinah Drake as in Dinah Drake Lance.

    ^ That Dinah's maiden name was never given onscreen, at least as far as I know. We just assumed that it was Drake based on the information we had at the time.

    The behind the scenes of this show must be an absolute soap opera. This totally smacks of desperation by the writers. No one is putting this on their resume.

    What is so desperate about this decision? It's perfectly in line with what the Berlantiverse has bern doing since Day 1, which is to both honor the comics and simultaneously play around with them.

    You're right. Every single time they've ever been backed into a corner, this is precisely how they write themselves out of it... By pretending it was all part of the plan, when in reality it's just a rushed bit of nonsense they use to retcon every bit of crap they put to screen and then tie it in a bastardized-canon bow.

    Introducing Tina/Dinah isn't them trying to write themselves out of a corner. It's introducing a character from the comics but doing so in a way that messes with our perceptions of the comics source material, just as they did with Thea Queen/Speedy, Tommy Merlyn, Eddie Thawne, Hunter Zolomon as "Jay Garrick", Sara Lance as Black Canary, Isabel Rochev as Ravager, Billy Wintergreen as Deathstroke, and Yao Fei and Shado as prototype Green Arrows, among countless other examples.

    Malcolm is Arthur King inspired DA, not Tommy, and he isn't a Tommy replacement. Thea is Mia Dearden Speedy, not a replacement for Mia. Eddie is Malcolm Thawne and not a replacement. Hunter was never Jay. Billy was never DS. Same with Yao and Shado. None of these are the same as this. This is bad writing no matter what spin is put on it. Have a very great day!

    God bless you all!

    The end made me want to vomit...Whats the point of having Katie Cassidy come back again? This character would be better as a stand alone badass not BC again.

    Yep. Basically a bait and switch.

    I swear we saw it written out on a BTS shot of a script too. But one way or the other, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck and the duck's duckling has the right name (and so does the mother aka Dinah Lance who was married to Quentin LARRY Lance) Yeah, it's a total retcon if she wasn't a Drake.

    I find it hilarious that Tina's bosses in Central City didn't even know her name. What was that about? Who gets's pictured in the police database in their dress blues but listed by their super secret undercover name???

    It was nice to finally see some competent acting on this show again. Lexa Doig made everyone look like chumps in 1 episode.

    Bait and switch seems to be their approach when it comes to Laurel.

    That also makes Team Flash look incompetent once again.

    You're not presenting an argument against it. Have a very great day! God bless you all!
