Okay but can I give a quick contribution to the conversation? Because I HATE K*te *rgent and I hate JD even more for bringing her back, and like, TP saying sterek is a 'weird, bizzare, twisted thing' when the show is LITERALLY SHOVING DOWN OUR THROATS K*te/Derek, his abuser, rapist, without a) anknowledging those very facts, and b) trying to cover it with humor like 'hahahaha those cheekbones man, ANYONE would take a piece of that' like. Holy shit. JD is not a gift
Wait wait wait though, anon. I haven’t seen any of the scenes from the last episode (outside of what’s floated across my dash in gif form) but was the show in any way being pro Derek/Kate in that episode?? Because that would be absolutely horrifying and I would launch so many protests.
All I’ve seen of Kate, though, was her aiming a gun to Derek’s head and Chris shooting her (*clutches heart at Chris protecting Derek*) so it seems pretty established that Kate was still an evil psycho bent on tormenting Derek and he hated her?
I doubt the word rape is ever going to be used in regards to either Kate or Jennifer, and I don’t know if Jeff even realizes that’s what it was tbh, but Kate taunting Derek or making gross comments about how attractive he is IMO just adds to the pile of evidence of what a horrible heartless psycho she is, and if she had to come back (which I guess she did because she was allowed to survive s4 for some reason, I’m kind of glad they’re making some effort to tie up loose threads) then I’m glad she’s being brought back as a villain, as opposed to the show trying to make her seem less evil or put her on some kind of dumb, forced redemption arc
like a lot of other former villains. Like… practically every other former villain who isn’t dead tbh.
I don’t mind villains, as long as they’re treated like villains. (Like… I loathe Kate as a person, but not so much as a character, if that makes sense.) It’s when characters do horrible things and are still treated like heroes that I really start getting upset.
