Poor Kurt. It can’t be easy to discover that your shady estranged mother is stalking you by pretending to be your closest friends.
But even with her flaws and selfishness, I can’t help but be fascinated by Momstique. This aspect of of her character reminds me of Once Upon A Time season 1′s Regina. I believe she genuinely loves Kurt and Rogue, but she ultimately prioritizes her goals and ambitions, or unintentionally makes harmful decisions in a flawed attempt to protect her children or demonstrate her love for them. Azazel, on the other hand, has never once tried to make amends to Kurt and consistently tries to hurt him every time they meet.
