"Compromised" offered a number of fun moments and great period-appropriate references, while still delivering a good deal of strong character and plot developments. Just an all-around fun time, really.

This episode adds a mature, thoughtful layer to Sara's character as she accepts fate, but also realizes that it doesn't take away from the love she had for Laurel or what Laurel meant to her.
