So, I don't know if this changes in season 2, but in season 1, Allison is seen using the modern equivalent of a compound bow, and a recurve bow. Not a crossbow. I hope season 2 does not show her using a crossbow, because crossbows kinda suck. They take too long to reload, and they're less accurate, in proficient hands; the reason crossbows were good for armies is that they take vastly less training to use effectively. Since Allison has already demonstrated bow proficiency, crossbows would be a serious downgrade.|
(velithya suggested that maybe it's because crossbows can be smaller, but I don't find that a convincing argument. They're bulkier; a bow, especially unstrung, can take up less space, regardless.)
So, that's one thing - talking about her crossbow. Unless canon introduces one, which I hope it doesn't, the word people want is "bow".
But that one maaay be allowable.
What is hilariously, comedically not allowable at all?
Referring to the projectiles launched by her alleged crossbow as arrows.
CROSSBOWS DO NOT FIRE ARROWS.
Bows fire arrows. Crossbows fire bolts. They are quite different.
