whenever i see a pic of jared leto i always have to think if he’s jesus for a second
With all this being said, maybe Stiles is struggling himself. As they all are. I know there were bills coming in with notices. I know he was possessed by the nogitsune, watched himself kill people, almost killed his best friend, etc. there are obviously underlying issues, and I still love stiles but I simply cannot defend this or justify his behavior.
I swear the moment ableism comes into play around me I am going to be fucking pissed off. Someone’s disorder shouldn’t be played off as comedy for tv like it’s not cute or funny. Especially coming from a character who constantly talked about his ADHD and taking Ritalin which is far different from antipsychotics, of course, plus the kid is so young and already struggling with being a werewolf and controlling the shift due to his ied. He doesn’t need a fucking snarky asshole on his case and laughing at him the whole time. So wrong
I just need to say that as a person in a wheelchair I wouldn’t want to hear what stiles said. Being in a wheelchair is equivalent to mental disorders, I have to deal with assholes every single time I step out in public. But to hear things Stiles said toward Liam? That’s just awful. Not to mention, I knew someone with intermittent explosive disorder. It’s terrifying and a struggle to deal with bc people were terrified of him and never knowing when he’d lose his shit. He punched walls, broke his own hands, punched people, drank a lot. It was not pretty. Plus stiles is supposed to have ADHD, right? So I think that was really ooc and took this sudden ruthlessness to a whole new level. I love Stiles but he’s gone beyond a cute and funny little shit. You can’t say he’s always been that bad.
Theory that Stiles is being an asshole because part of the nogitsune is still in him, and is now a part of him. It’ll always be inside him, just a small sliver of evil tucked away in the back of his head that he can’t ever get rid of no matter how hard he’s tried.
Or maybe Jeff Davis was high when he was writing this episode who knows
