Character traits ie sassy, quick tempered aren't what I'd call character development.

The Minotaur or Etta could have easily held a mini-series on their own cause they can operate independent of WW.

Zola's entire existence is dependent on her involvment to the Gods. Her reactions to being a pawn in their games and such. Hera... Who or what Zola is once this is all over?

That's the crux of the approach to WW I don't get from some people.

Sure. Learning how to order a venti coffee instead of large coffee at Starbucks would be confounding.

But understanding the need for revenge or that people can act irrationally because of jealousy are things people learn no matter what their cultural differences are. She wouldn't need Trevor or anyone else to hold her hand to understand it.

When people say "ways of man" like stuff. It makes it seem like WW doesn't understand human emotions/reactions cause she's from the planet Omicron Persei 8.

Is it worth getting worked up into a nice frothy rage? Not a chance. Not a chance in hell.
