Ten minutes into this week’s Suits and I’m just. ugh. Did we really need to do this Rachel/Logan/Mike crap?
Do you remember Rosa’s reaction last time the printer jammed?
Teen Wolf 4x06 “Orphaned” Sneak Peek #2 (1080p HD)
I said this on Twitter last night but I want it on here for record-keeping purposes (and sometimes because I like to say “I called it”), but I’m calling it now: Peter and Kate are in cahoots and Derek is losing power because Peter is stealing it from him. The show is ridiculously hand-wavey about whether magic is actually a thing in its story universe, but there’s already canonical precedent for Peter using Derek’s body/power to restore his own; it’s how he was resurrected in season 2. And because Peter is, well, Peter, he simply can’t resist gloating about what he’s doing, even if he thinks Derek won’t get it that he’s gloating about what he’s doing.
I get the impression this is something Peter’s been working on since 3a, what with how he convinced Derek to heal Cora by giving up his power. There had to have been a larger point to that plotline. When I first saw the video above, I thought well, that’s odd. If he wants power why not try to get it from Scott, who’s actually an Alpha. I still remember Peter and Jen’s exchange from the end of 3A when she said that now Scott was a True Alpha, Peter would try to take it from him. But maybe (and this is me giving the show wayyy too much credit) Scott is the last part of the plan. I complained about that story possibly being dropped but maybe it wasn’t. Derek feels like an odd choice at this point, but I suppose when you’re going up against True Alphas any extra power helps, right? I feel like Scott is Peter’s endgame, is what I’m saying.

I haven’t talked about TW’s plot much recently, but some things have stuck out to me that I’ll tackle eventually. But here’s a couple: I’m not sure where the show is going with Liam consistently talking about things being his ‘fault’, but it reminds me of this set I made where Scott likes to blame himself for things.. even if they weren’t really his doing. On a better show I would say some parallel was being drawn, but here, eh.
Also, I have to say, I’m disappointed (but not surprised) that we haven’t seen Scott express his thoughts on the fact that he turned someone. At this point I don’t even know why I have any expectations. I feel there are at least 3 discussions missing here. Between Scott and Stiles, between Scott and Derek, and perhaps most importantly, between Scott and Liam. The show has made such a big deal about Scott and the bite, for something that haunted and bothered him so long, the fact that, just like his ascension to Alpha status, we’re only dealing with the urgent issues continues to frustrate me. Yes, we know Scott is confused about raising a beta, but how does he feel about turning an unwilling person, even if it was to save his life? Does he feel sorry? Guilty? Perhaps I need to rewatch, but the fact that I need to is not encouraging. It might still come up at a later date, but knowing this show it’ll be half-assed and sloppy. I’m not even going to talk about Allison.
Anonymous asked: where do you find rating information?
TW’s ratings are not .. good… this season.
I wish I could learn to not feel so guilty when I put my foot down with someone who has messed up with me. I sent a mail telling off a client who kept taking my work for granted (even though at this point, I’ve finished the work she paid me for and everything I’m doing now is a favour, ugh) and it’s been haunting me all morning that I’m some sort of asshole.
I think this stems from a time when I was about 7 or 8, and I shouted at an older student at camp that kept sitting on my bed and messing it up. One day I just snapped, and no one took my side because she was older and ~respect~ or some BS. It was the most horrible thing. i think I can pinpoint all the events from my childhood that messed me up in some way.
"I think for me, the main reason I really wanted to audition was because I had never been given a script that featured the bigger girl in this way. All the other stuff I’d been sent was always ‘the bully’ or ‘the victim’. It was never just a story, about a girl. There was always some silly ‘thing’ attached. This character had all these issues; eating issues, mental issues, family issues. Just like every other person. She had all these issues but they didn’t define her. She defined her.”
