but… they didn’t. i’m pretty sure Jeff didn’t consider what Stiles was doing over the hiatus in the summer, or really what any of them did.
or how on earth the alpha pack found the only other surviving Hale, and Derek never felt that she was alive.
or how the alpha twins discovered they could morph together, or how their jeans remained intact.
or that he was going to have to kill off Erica and Boyd.
or that Jackson would have needed really hardcore specific training to ensure he didn’t end up a nuts omega without a pack in London.
or how old Derek is.
or when the Hale fire actually happened.
or why Talia Hale missed Peter Hale setting her son up.
or why Laura went to find Peter in the woods in the middle of the night, and as an alpha, still wasn’t able to take out her crippled uncle.
or how Isaac beat the shit out of a kid, twice, and was STILL IN SCHOOL.
why their school doesn’t have metal detectors, or any sort of security at all.
why nobody has sat down with Deaton and asked, how do you know all this, tell us everything you know, so that we can prepare, what’s your history with Peter Hale, write it down.
how the burnt down shell of the Hale house had internet access for Peter to show Derek convenient videos of Kanimas evolving… that obviously the Winchesters recorded or something.
who filled Lydia in on WEREWOLVES.
if Jeff actually sat down, and planned out this kind of shit, then i would believe they were working together before 3a, then i would appreciate that unfolding, or being revealed. them falling for each other and having an illicit affair before wiping it off the slate and pretending it didn’t happen for two seasons, whatever, YES, on any other show, with any other writers, on this one, no. they just haven’t planned for it.
