Personally I really don’t give a crap about Laurel’s secret identity. The show needs to continue to focus on Oliver, Digg and Felicity and give much more to Lyla Michaels and Thea Queen who are two characters that I feel need to be more used.
To answer your question at the end. I’d love for them to bring in XS maybe in Legends of Tomorrow but I would love for her to move onto the Flash and immediately bond with grandma Iris.
