For this half of the season, I am determined to do better about watching Teen Wolf in a timely manner. I fell down on that so hard during the first part of the year, but not this time. Since the first of the year, I have gotten myself so freaking together it’s mind boggling. For real. I am so on top of things right now. And it’s going to stay that way.
For a lot of people, when they want to talk about relationships on Teen Wolf (or, let’s be real, any show) the focus is pretty squarely on the romantic ones. But while I enjoy many of the romances (the tragedy of Scott and Allison, the antagonism of Lydia and Jackson, the dysfunction of Malia and Stiles, the fumbling of Scott and Kira, and the absolutely meant to be Derek and Stiles), more often I’ve found the other relationships to be much deeper, more nuanced, and vastly more interesting.
I’m especially enthralled by our teen protagonists and their parents. For today, let’s talk about Stiles and Sheriff Stilinski.
