So over the past week, I have binge watched Legends of Tomorrow, which I can safely say might be my favorite show right now. However, I want to talk about how amazing of a character Sara Lance is. Even after life on Lian Yu and dealing with Ivo, she is so strong, independent, and willing to do what she needs to do. Now I feel like throughout Legends of Tomorrow I feel like Sara Lance has grown as a character. She used to be kind of a loner, but throughout the show, she has become a great friend. Her friendship with Kendra has really allowed her to blossom as a person.
I also feel like she's a really great role model. Unless I'm mistaken (which is possible, I haven't done a lot of research), she is one of the few women in the League of Assassins other than Nyssa. I feel like you have to be a really strong woman to be in the League of Assassins. Now not only is she a great fighter, but all of the other people in the group use a gun or gun like weapon, she rarely uses guns and is always able to handle herself.
My last reason I want to talk about is based on a specific episode. So if you haven't watched Legends of Tomorrow, this isn't really a spoiler, but if you like going into episodes blind then I wouldn't continue reading. There is an episode where they go back to the 1950s, and Sara meets a nurse, and she teaches the nurse in the 1950s that it's okay to like women, and to ignore the prejudice. That's something that not every character would do. I think that was the episode that I fell in love with Sara Lance.
I know that she has her faults, and she's not perfect, but Sara Lance has become one of my favorite fictional characters.
