Remember how before 5B aired, Jeff said in interviews that we’d be learning why sisters Hayden Romero and Valerie Clark have different last names and why Hayden’s parents aren’t in the picture?
Remember how in interviews, it was teased that Mason is the youngest in his family, with lots of adult siblings, and that we’d be learning more about that?
Remember how the episode before Boyd died, we learned for the first time about his sister who mysteriously disappeared years before and is a huge source of guilt for him?
Remember how any time it came up at cons and in interviews that Danny’s last name means Full Moon, the coy response was always along the lines of ‘well you’d think something like that would probably have to be significant in a show about werewolves, huh’.
Notice how titular main character Scott McCall apparently has no family other than his mom and his deadbeat dad, not even a reference to cousins or aunts or uncles or grandparents, while we’ve seen multiple generations of the Argents, the Martins, the Stilinskis and the Hales?
It’s almost like there’s some pattern to which characters on the show just get their backstories and families and various other information about them teased, and which ones we’ve seen several generations of their families and delved deep into family history and the significance of their names and relationships and so on and so forth…..
Gosh, there’s something right in front of my face, I can feel it, now if only I could put my finger on it, hmmmmm.
Her Relic part 2. Hayden Romero/Valerie Clark Drabble.
Summary - Valerie finds something a little interesting.
Work, sleep, Eat, Repeat. That was Valerie Clark’s life she had no hobbies, no family, no nothing her whole life revolved around work after all that was all she worked for since she was nineteen, she knew this was what whew wanted to do.
Since the car accident that killed her parent’s Valerie had been alone.. though she could have sworn that she had had someone else with her after her parents someone she was so close to but.. maybe she was crazy.
After a particularly long day Valerie had come home but before she completely crashed out she decided to clean up her lonely apartment a little bit, something she very rarely did, she thought she could remember someone else doing it though again no face or name came to mind.
‘You have officially lost your mind Val.’ she said to herself as she gathered clothes from the bathroom carrying them to the laundry room going through them quickly she pulled the arms and legs though the right way before throwing them in, picking up a pair of jeans she took a closer look at them, these weren’t hers.. checking the tag on the clothing she was absolutely she as they weren’t her size and that made her curious, who did this pair of jeans belong to.. giving a shake of her head she threw them off to the side and continued stacking her washing in the machine.
Once done she picked up the jeans she didn’t owns and walked to the bin and just as she was about to throw them away noticed something sticking out in the pocket. Removing the item she looked at an orange bottle with a white lid, a medicine bottle she took no medicines so this wasn’t hers. Reading the bottle on the label it was Mycophenolate prescribed to a .. Hayden Romero.
“Hayden Romero!” She called out, marching to where her sister sat on the lounge watching TV with her bowl of popcorn. “I know you said to wait for you but come on I love this movie too much but I will start it again when you come out…and I’ll make more popcorn” Hayden grinned innocently. “This isn’t about that.. it’s about this.” Holding up the medicine bottle she pulled from the pocket of Hayden’s jeans. “Again Hayden? This is the fourth time this week, come on these bottles cost 200 dollars each!” she groaned out as her sister took the bottle from her hand and placed it on the table. “I’m sorry, it won’t happen again.” she sighed. “Right because I have heard that before..” Valerie said with a shake of her head. “I’ll be out in a minute.. Start the movie again and make more popcorn” Valerie chuckled.
Hayden.. Her sister.. How could she have forgotten her own sister and where was she now, she didn’t know but Valerie was determined to find out.
Hayden Romero is a girl who loves her sister, who worked at a nightclub for shit pay with a sleazy boss so she can help her sister pay for her medication, because she, presumably, doesn’t have her parents anymore. She tried to help a girl, and ended up getting physically hurt because of it. Not five minutes later, she’s healed and doesn’t know how. A boy who she was mad at for years for punching her in the face on picture day, cost her $200. The boy then tried to pay her back, make her think he might not be satan incarnate after all. Then, that boy tells her she’s not human, there’s a supernatural world, and then changes into a werewolf and growls in her face. She punches him and, again, heals faster than she should. When she runs away from the psychotic freak who’s acting like a madman and could have seriously hurt her, she gets attacked by three monsters. The boy saves her again, protects her from something that she is scared shitless of. She’s just as scared as Liam was of the berserkers, wants someone to talk to, confide to, trust, help her navigate this brand new world that she knows nothing about, like Liam had with Scott, to teach him, and Mason, to comfort him. She goes to the only person in this new world that she knows, that she’s starting to trust. He says he’s going to protect her, that he’ll get her protection. And what happens? The person who she is told will protect her is using her for bait. She, and the boy, get kidnapped by monsters who experiment and torture them. They go through it together, with only each other. And then someone comes along to save them, and he does. He literally saved her, and the boys, life. She feels grateful and trusts him. Then, she dies. The boy tries to help her, but can’t. She wants to see her sister, but can’t. The boy who she’s grown to care about, to trust, leaves her. She dies with a woman she barely knows in a dark, dreary part of a hospital. She comes back to life, saved by the guy who saved her from being tortured, told that she is ‘his’, has no one else to help her understand all of this besides him. So, no, Hayden Romero is not ‘just a love interest’. Hayden Romero did not ‘ruin Liam’s character and his storyline’. Hayden and Liam did not hate each other one episode and then love each other the next. Hayden Romero is not a bitch for not going to Liam. Hayden does have a sense of loyalty. Hayden Romero is not a bitch for leaving Liam, who told her he would heal, to find her sister, who is being chased by a monster that could very possibly kill her. Hayden Romero is a strong, 3-dimensional character with flaws, personality traits, and a history. Hayden Romero does not deserve your hate just because you want to be with Liam, or because you’re misogynistic, or racist, or whatever other dumb-ass, ridiculous reason you have.
This is just a suggestion and all but maybe you oughta convince Valerie to take that transfer. I mean if you’re gone…. You can’t die. Everyone’s happy. I mean I really don’t want you to die again. This is a bit more graceful.
So lets talk about Hayden Romero, Liam Dunbar, Layden/Liayden shall we?
she’s a love interest…
she’s ruined Liam’s character….
they were rushed….
They have no chemistry….
So lets talk about those ^^ I see them everywhere Hayden/Layden are mentioned.
Let’s split them into segments.
She’s just a love interest..
no, no she really isn’t.
I get at the bringing it may have seemed like she was just someone who was thrown in that hated Liam but she isn’t just a love interest.
it wasn’t as if Hayden was brought in with no backstory, yes she has her backstory with Liam but she also has a backstory with Valerie Clarke.
This is Valerie Clarke, Hayden’s sister, they have their own backstory that hasn’t been told yet, questions were asked about why they have different last names .. answers were given in a podcast though it wasn’t an actual answer we got told we will be finding out more into the past of the sisters and there will apparently be a lot of drama centred around Hayden.
Hayden Romero is a chimera, who was brought back from the daed.. we aren’t sure what kind of chimera she is yet but that will be reviled in 5x11 o she will not only have SL’s with Liam, Valerie but with Theo and the other chimeras as well.
She Ruined Liam’s Character..
Liam is acting different, yes i will admit.
I think it has very little to do with Hayden..
When Liam was taken by the dead doctors while in there they had done something to him, similar to Kira they stuck something in his eye before himself and Hayden were thrown in the other room with zack.
we all saw how different Kira starter acting, Liam started acting different too after being rescued.
of course he is also acting different now he is with Hayden, this is Liam’s first girlfriend, what teenage boy doesn’t act differently with their first girlfriend?
They were rushed..
Hayden and Liam have known each other since they were in the sixth grade, probably longer as we don’t know too far back in their past besides the incident where Liam accidentally punched Hayden, for all we know Liam and Hayden could have had little crushes on each other back then too.
honestly i think that is the reasoning why Hayden held the grudge for so long, she liked Liam, when he punched her, she took it the wrong way and hence the grudge, there has to be some other reason why Hayden held the grudge for so long.
for Liam, i think it’s the same, he liked had yen back then and felt so bad when he punched her, so when he sees her years later in the class room all those feelings started flooding back and he wants to make it up to Hayden.
They have no chemistry..
Nah you are probably right.. they have no chemistry at all.. (NOTE: SARCASM)
