Teen wolf ramblings
So, these are just my ramblings about teen wolf (a bunch about the newest ep but some other stuff too). I’m probably forgetting shit and stuff. But yeah, so I have some thinky thoughts.
The scene with Braeden and that cop. Kinda weird scene. Like all we get is the whole scar/broken nose thing.
I found the way that the conversation went pretty interesting.
Like he asks how she got that scar, she says werewolf and then she pretty much asks the same exact question except about a broken nose and he goes what? which kinda makes me go Braeden, what are YOU?
At first I thought werewolf because well, not being dead and getting better fast and like well, her saying ‘A werewolf’ to him but then she should have been affected by the virus like the rest and she got better pretty quick like the humans so I doubt it.
Even if we know that werewolves can mask their scent, and everything. But I def think she’s not 100% human.
I think she’s pretty awesome and I kinda love her, but I also don’t trust her for a second. XD I’m afraid she’s uh, collecting more than one payment and such.
I want her to be totally on their side, but I highly doubt she is. And I’m not sure Derek believes it either. Maybe she was there to get info to then share with Derek (she used that U.S Marshal thing to get them info before), or maybe she was there for the benefactor (another pawn, or getting paid? After all she’s said before if she gets paid enough she’d even kill Scott.)
Because we saw Haigh go ‘Inquiring about payment.’ and then Parrish comes in, etc. and then up pops ‘Kill not confirmed’. Maybe benefactor got annoyed he tried to get paid when he failed. We don’t know what happened after Braeden punched him.
singitforthegirls said: so ep. 111 is called promise to the dead. And people were wondering whose the dead person? What if Derek "dies" in the end of the next ep or something, and so he's the dead person they are keeping a promise to or something? Promise to the dead is where they fight an old enemy. Peter maybe? And then Mexico?
Those are pretty much my thoughts too. I think Derek’s “death scene” or whatever is happening to him will be next ep when the benefactor and the assassins are most likely dealt with to some extend (or at least enough for Kira to feel comfortable setting up a date with Scott). I noticed in the scene from the promo where Breaden and Derek are back to back, she looked pretty worried - like she wasn’t sure they would make it out alive and maybe that results in Derek “dying”.
yeah, totally something like that.
Anonymous said: Braeden was intrusive and I don't believe Derek trusts her exactly (though complete trust isn't necessarily a prerequisite for sex) but I think some fans are at pains to reject the possibility of a mutual sexual attraction between them, and to portray their dynamic as a less than healthy one. The implicit goal here seems to be to position Stiles as Derek's sole chance at a secure, enduring love. TBH I'd rather Derek and Stiles choose each other despite other viable options.
Sex can happen for a number of reason, and complete trust is not necessary as you point out. Neither is everlasting love. Sex can be just sex, lots of people feel attracted to each other, but that doesn’t mean they have to be “endgame”.
Derek seems to like the sassy, snarky and playful kind, and Braeden certainly fits that mold. I do think Derek is attracted to her, and the sex was probably hot. I have no problem with Derek having a relationship that isn’t with Stiles. I also believe Stiles needed to have another relationship first as well.
I think Draeden will fall short not because the sex isn’t good, or because they’re not compatible. Given the chance to develop it might be a beautiful relationship for all i know. But circumstance and secrets will be its downfall. They same way secrets and lies by omission destroyed Stalia.
I think you summed it up beautifully - I too want Derek and Stiles to choose each other because it feels right. It’s more powerful that way. If it’s the only choice then what’s the fun in that?
