I have always said that Stiles is my favorite character and I’ve made the occasional joke about Coach being my favorite, but honestly Theo is.
If Stiles was still in season 6, he’d probably still be my favorite but also I love Theo more than words can describe.
Cody is such an amazing actor and the way he portrays Theo is honestly astounding. The way he puts his heart and soul and everything into his acting and especially Theo makes me love him so much.
I will admit when I first watched season 5, I was not a fan of Theo. He was hurting my Stiles and I was not happy about that. At all.
But, towards the end of the season I started to think about it and I began to really like Theo.
I saw how much pain he was in. He didn’t know what it was like for people other than the dread doctors (who he experienced no love from) to be around him and try and show him some kind of compassion so he didn’t care about anyone either. It wasn’t his fault. He didn’t understand love. He didn’t grow up around love. His whole life he didn’t have that.
Yeah, he did awful horrible things and I can’t defend him on killing his sister but once Liam brought Theo back, he started to experience what it’s like for people to share some kind care for him.
It was very obvious from the beginning of 6a when Liam brought back Theo that Theo was experiencing some kind of care to him.
Once Theo came back in 6A I was so happy and excited and everyone else was pissed and hating on him AND Cody, which is not OK. And that’s still the case.
He use to be quite heartless and that’s not his fault. But he’s nothing like that anymore.
He has a heart that holds love in it. He’s doing everything he can to be helpful and care and save people and he’s doing so damn well.
Theo isn’t totally like Scott because he’s still got downs but he’s gaining a lot of Scott’s qualities. And Scott cares about people.
Theo has saved Liam countless times and he cares about him. SO much. He said he would abandon Liam and the next scene he was back saving Liam and trying to get him to go with him.
But I mean you know, Theo is still pretty heartless. I mean he used himself as fucking bait and risked his life to save Liam.
And then there was when he rushed over to make sure Mason was okay after the anuk-ite boy was trying to attack them. Theo wanted to take Mason’s pain away and when he couldn’t he was so hurt and was trying not to cry. Obviously he would rather leave Mason there to die, not caring about how he’s doing, instead of trying to take away his pain and not leaving Mason’s side when Theo could leave because he wasn’t hurt.
The times Theo said, “I don’t care what you do, just let me help you.”
and “I did all of this to keep you from being taken”
Or truly listening to what Liam is saving about history and saying “I’m impressed”
LEt’s not forget when the guy who use to hurt and try to kill people, helped Liam control his anger and stopped him from almost killing Gabe.
AND almost killing Nolan.
All of this means nothing though, right? He’s still the same person he was in season 5.
And that’s a load of bullshit.
I will defend Theo in every way I can and I will always love him, flaws and all.
