Theo and Cody fans have anticipated this moment ever since they got a glimpse of Theo Raeken in the opening scene of episode 6x12: Theo is back. And it was even more than that. More than just a simple return.
Theo felt like a main character. He was present in various scenes throughout the episode and Cody Christian certainly was at his very best. It felt like he had only been slumbering, waiting in the dark just to make his grand return.
The chimera was held captive with two other werewolves, tortured by constant electroshocks. Despite the agonizing pain, Theo kept his wittiness, remaining sassy and certainly was not holding back in terms of his smug comments. That’s exactly the Theo we love. It was through his own cleverness that he managed to free himself as well as the other two.
Theo said he wasn’t so much of a pack animal. That we know. What he didn’t say however, was how lonely he actually was. When Theo joined forces once again with Scott’s pack, one could see some kind of transformation. He fought with them, in spite of his apparent reluctance. We remember: Yeah, Theo just wants to stay alive. He is free to leave Beacon Hills, but chooses not to.
Theo Raeken has a heart. We can be certain of it. Cody Christian manages to give us an insight into what is going on in Theo’s mind.
“Cody Christian shows us what’s underneath. He shows us that Theo just wants to be loved.” - Jeff Davis about Cody
He may have done cruel things in the past, killed people. Willing to do anything to gain power. Yet, there’s another side of him we yet need to figure out. This side is slowly coming to the surface.
Theo: “Your dead friends are dead. And they’re gonna stay dead no matter what you d–”
[Liam punches Theo in the face; Theo drops to the floor.]
Liam: “By the way, I’m still working on my anger.”
Theo: “…Good to know.”
Moreover, I’m amazed at how much chemistry Dylan Sprayberry and Cody Christian have when they are together on screen. Liam Dunbar and Theo Raeken get along one moment, but lose temper and fight in another. They still didn’t give each other that fist bump, though. If they work together, they’ll be lethal.
Let’s hope that Theo will remain bulletproof for the remainder of season 6. There are only 5 episodes left now, time’s obviously running faster than we want it to. Soon, we will have to say goodbye to Theo Raeken and all the other characters we’ve learnt to adore. Will Theo actually have something close to a happy ending? We will find out soon…
It was, strangely, Jeff the Liar, son of William the Barely Known, - who first became concerned [and] it was Annie the Dayplanner, herself a recovering headcase, that recognized the signs of coming doom.
So, who broke it? I’m not mad, I just want to know.
I did, I broke it-
No. No, you didn’t. Toby?
Don’t look at me. Look at Masky.
What? I didn’t break it.
Huh. That’s weird. How did you even know it was broken?
Because it’s sitting right in front of us, and it’s broken.
No, it’s not.
If it matters... probably not... Jeff was the last one to use it.
Liar! I don’t even drink that crap.
Oh, really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, Jane!
Alright, let’s not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it, BEN.
No. Who broke it?
BEN, EJ has been awfully quiet...
[Cut to BEN in another room, the rest of them fighting in the background]
I broke it. It burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now, they’ll be at each other’s throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
In October, Sessions testified to the Senate that he did not have any “continuing exchange of information” with Russian operatives — and that he wasn’t “aware of anyone else [on the Trump campaign] that did.” Weeks later, Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed Papadopoulos’s confession to the crime of lying to the FBI. In that written statement, the former Trump campaign national security adviser claimed that he had told Sessions about “connections” he had that “could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President Putin” in March of last year. In his testimony before Congress Tuesday, Sessions tried to account for this apparent discrepancy.
“I do now recall the March 2016 meeting at Trump Hotel that Mr. Papadopoulos attended, but I have no clear recollection of the details of what he said at that meeting,” Sessions explained. “After reading his account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter.”
Later, Sessions said more firmly, “At the meeting, I pushed back.”
So, the attorney general has no clear memory of the meeting, but has a vivid recollection of behaving admirably during it.
“You broke my nose
twice. It healed and you broke it again. Two times.”
This week’s episode was called “Triggers”. And
it certainly triggered all kinds of emotions. Lots of broken and bloody noses,
too. Cody Christian was able to shine in some very well-lit scenes, which is
rather unlikely for Teen Wolf. Gladly, he was granted plenty of screen time. Who
would not have liked Theo to become a main character? Well, he might not be one
officially. But ever since they brought him back, he feels like one. Theo is
gradually becoming a part of the pack.
Moreover, it was certainly a good episode for Thiam fans. Theo and Liam shared a lot
of screen time together, which was rather comical on the one hand; on the other,
it proves that they are learning to trust each other, building something close
to a friendship. However, it is not as easy as it looks. One moment, they seem
to get along. Seconds later, they are punching each other.
Liam: You ripped my shirt…
Theo: You broke my nose. Twice. It healed. And you broke it again. Two times.
Liam [punches him again]: Three times.
The plan is that Liam and Theo lure the hunters
away from their lair, so that the others can get a hold of their weapons. It does
not really go as they planned, since Gerard always seems to be one step ahead
of them. However, all that happens in the abandoned zoo shows how intelligent
Theo actually is.
Same goes to Liam. He chooses the abandoned zoo
because of the narrow paths, just as the streets in Mykonos. “I’m impressed,”
Theo admits with a smile. Are they starting to get along? It seems like it.
Liam would not have been able to do this without Theo’s help, and he is well
aware of it.
These scenes also show that Theo is changing. Old
Theo would have let Liam kill Nolan, maybe even killed him himself. He knocks
Liam out, telling Nolan to run, a smirk on his lips. He knows that something is
off about the beta. Anger issues, everything is heightened even more than it
usually is. Will we see more of Theo helping Liam through all of this, help him
control his anger? It would be a great opportunity, though.
I had to knock you
Yeah. How many times?
Liam and Theo could probably do this all day
long. Punching each other in the face. Breaking each other’s nose. Once. Twice.
Three times. But in the end, they would sit on Liam’s sofa together, playing a
video game. Maybe they actually do. Who knows? And when Theo beats Liam in that
game, the beta breaks his nose a fourth time.
i’ve read a lot on tumblr about why the show 13rw should/shouldn’t have a second series. theirs such great charecters in the show that it would be a total shame not to make a second series. however hannah’s story is over and the 13 reasons of the show have been covered and clay and her family are moving closer to closure. this is why i think they should have a second series called “13 reasons later”. this could show alex’s journey through potential suicide, how jessica deals with her rape and what happerns to bryce and if he goes to jail. further more a second series would be great to show hannah’s parents in the law suit and what happerns to the tapes when left in the hands of mr porter snd the bakers. there’s too many ends to be left like this and it’d be great to have answers we need a 13 reasons later.
