Hate Peter Hale and Theo Raeken all you want. They’re villains, the antagonists, you’re not meant to love them or their actions. But do not hate on Ian Bohen or Cody Christian. They’re both great actors and very dedicated to their characters. They love this fandom very much and always attend events for fans; they’re good people and deserve respect. Ian and Cody both portray their characters amazingly; if I’m being honest, Peter and Theo are two of my favourite characters, because they’re great characters. I honestly hate them for what they’ve done on the show, but I love them because they’re interesting and complex characters. So go ahead and hate Peter and hate Theo for all the horrible things they’ve done, for the people they’ve hurt, and so on, but do not hate the actors or the people who like their characters. Liking an antagonist doesn’t mean you support the antagonists actions, but you appreciate an interesting character.
