I take the approach that Cait is Sherlock and Vi is Watson. Both kick ass as individuals but together they beat kids like Moriarty. While Sherlock gets the credit for it, he could have never done it without the help of Watson.

My question is who is the said bad guys they chase around? How does Vi feel about Jayce?

I think the most important thing to think about here is that lore is like WWE wrestling a set of cheesey plot lines and new personalities to create compelling entertainment week after week showcasing who is the best of the best at pay-per-veiw events.

Draven's rude. He's just more refined in his rudeness.

Ultimately Vi seems to be a far more reckless and shallow Robin, and her connection with Caitlyn a subpar parody of buddy cop movies. She punches things- a one trick pony. If she was so good at stealing from other criminals, I'd think she'd be more subtle. How else could she survive that long? Brute force usually doesn't allow someone to live any significant time, unless you're Mundo.

It really feels like it contradicts Caitlyn's character.

Unless it gets changed to something along the lines of "Caitlyn is doing this to keep a close eye on Vi", it would be far better in my opinion which also leaves it the story between the two open for the future. Will Vi go back to the life of crime? Or will she stay on the path of redemption? If she does fall back into that lifestyle her current lore as Caitlyn's partner makes it seem contradictory, as the partnership feels like a sort of commitment as opposed to the vagueness of Caitlyn wanting to keep Vi close to watch her.

just my opinion.

There's a lot of story potential for her and the Piltover champions, both comedic, and serious, so all in all, I like her.

And I can't help but grin every time she uses her Q. It makes me think of Ralf's Galactica Phantom from KoF.
That should be another Journal of Justice article. Match of the century Blitzcrank vs Vi all out boxing match to see who truly wields the greatest fist!
