It would still make more sense than what the writers ended up doing for Laurel's character, at least here, there would be more of a context to her turn rather than the writers meandering around her character for at least 2 seasons.

My guess here is that the Sarah/Canary character was too good and a fan favorite that they went "oops" and had to drag out the time frame to have Laurel go Canary. Personally I wish they would have just kept Sarah around and gave up on the turn Laurel into Canary business.

That and her becoming BC is 1 of many subplots being juggled around this season, there's not enough time/development after meandering for 2 seasons and then giving her that addiction storyline that was supposed to be important for her character and ended up being a complete misfire. The handling/execution for what was supposed to be an important character for this series is baffling.
