Okay, honestly? I haven’t watched any of
season 4 3b of Teen Wolf. After the disaster that was 3a, I figured hey, why put myself through that. I’ve been reading reviews, looking at gifs, etc, and have been surprised that it hasn’t been such an extreme clusterfuck as I expected! Yay. Maybe I will end up watching it.
BUT! What the hell Jeff Davis. Why the everloving fuck would you explicitly say a character is lesbian and that you are now changing her orientation to bi??(x) WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST SAY SHE WAS BI BUT IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH ANOTHER WOMAN? WHY DO YOU DO THESE THINGS??! WHY WON’T YOU JUST GIVE US MORE QUEER CHARACTERS INSTEAD OF SWITCHING THEM AROUND FOR WHAT YOU SEE AS “REPRESENTATION” ???
BUT! Let’s pretend he never said that! I try to ignore most of what he says anyway, because most of it is bs (hello official tw tumblr q&as thank goodness we are rid of you). Let us imagine that Caitlin is bi, has always been bi, and never had her sexuality played with by a writer who doesn’t know the ages of his main characters or even what month it is. I feel much better now! YAY BISEXUAL LADIES HELLO! YAY Zelda Williams coming back to my television screen (ie computer in gifs as I don’t watch this ridiculous show anymore)! I’ve been a fan of her’s since Were the World Mine. She is lovely!! (She’s been getting hate, and that is extremely horrible. Please stop. Send your hate to DO’B for kissing HER as I would like to kiss her on her face, get away!)
BUT! Here is the thing. Having Ms Williams come back for ONE EPISODE does not representation make. I am ECSTATIC that there is a bi lady on tv! But if she is only there for 10mins and then is never seen again, that doesn’t fill your quota for queer representation no need to think about it again until next year. Is she ever coming back again? Or is this another one off character? I mean, at least she isn’t dead? That is a relief?
What would be even more of a relief is a character that wasn’t there and then gone again forever. GDI
ETA: if all this was just supposed to lead to canonically, explicitly stated bi!Stiles, then why didn’t it, and why can’t we just have her come back and be bros with him/make out with him/ladies
