The revelation about her eyesight was dumb


Like no *beep* she wasn't blind she was only doing things that absolutely no blind person can do. It would be like if someone told you their arms where amputated then preceded to pilot a helicopter with perfectly functional arms then you get surprised later when they reveal that they actually do have arms. Discuss.

Sure, people with normal vision can throw daggers that curve like the Matrix, jump through the trees like Spider-Man, and replicate impossible drum patterns with their sleeves.

But faking blindness was the part so preposterous that completely shattered your suspension of disbelief. lol

The skilled blind warrior has long been part of martial arts lore, e.g., the Japanese stories of Zatoichi, the blind Samurai, or Rutger Hauer's movie, "Blind Fury."
