I had a similar thought. I think with the CW shows there’s a level of winking and nodding about how ridiculous some of the stories / plots are that gives them room to get away with things like the nuke. That’s not a defense, since I’m with you that I like things to be researched, but I can see why they make the writing choices they make.
