Would the plot of The Sting have worked if the character of Salino had never been introduced? While she does kill one of Lonnegan's other assassins, she doesn't appear to impact the plot in any other manner. Yet her character, while a surprise during the reveal, seems to lack substance, at least to me. Was her character necessary?
