And while the romance author in me likes the implications of possible pairings I have to side eye looking woobieish again by being left out of all that. Especially since Felina would look to get a pairing, leap frogging over Feral whose been there since day one. Feral gets left out of the romance ships, making it yet another thing that doesn't work for him or it works against him. He can't get anything going against the SWAT Kats, yet he can't have a relationship either? If anything you'd expect Feral to have relationships, even if they were failed ones due to being "married" to the job.
A quick fix to this point would be Felina mentioning various family member reactions to Feral dating Kataluna. It would have the easiest way to see if Feral's parents/Felina's grandparents were still around and how the relationships in the family are. Plus, maybe even had someone Feral would have taken to the opera, if not for Kataluna's manipulations, make an appearance.
- *Felina's agency taken away only to bolster the need for the SWAT Kats.
Felina should have been taking charge. She's the one who could lose her uncle, so she should have been investigating and getting herself out of tight scrapes. And at the climax, she should have been kicking Kataluna's tail.
The SWAT Kats didn't have to be the focus. They could be in the episode, but not the focus. Especially when they had to force an Enforcer nonresponse to Felina's mayday just so T-Bone could save the day. Felina being a ranked officer, along with being Feral's niece would have got a response. Universe trope back into play.
Also, Felina had better gave that communicator back to T-Bone once the threat to Feral was over. I would not accept her keeping it, only to lead to the inevitable episode where Feral finds out about and is shouted down and being made to look like a bad guy when he would have every right to feel hurt and betrayed. Felina being in direct communication with the SWAT Kats betrays Feral and her fellow Enforcers, and is something that shouldn't be given lip service. If she was going to take it, then it's something that would need its own episode to handle the fallout.
