Remember season 2 when Allison, Erica and Boyd were still alive? When Jackson, Danny and Isaac were still around? When the worst Derek had to worry about was the kanima? When Scallison was cannon and there was no Stiles shipping drama? When the Sterek shippers rejoiced at the pool scene and the police station scene? When every new female character wasn’t launched at Derek’s dick? Remember when (mostly) everyone was happy with the show and every episode was better than the last? Yeah, I miss those days. I’d give just about anything to take us all back to the joy of season 2.
Why I think there’s a possibility for Stiles to be the one to ”’save”’ Derek based on just a few things:
Firstly the whole exchange between Derek, Stiles and Peter in 4x06. We know that Derek only talked about his problem with Argent (correct me if I’m wrong). There have been lines dropped here and there, hints and observations made by Derek himself regarding his power loss. The only one who has been actively noticing this is Peter and we’ve seen that since 4x03.
Now. I think it’s very meaningful that Stiles was in that scene. It wasn’t just coincidence or just for the sake of having Derek and Stiles in the same room. I like how we see hints of Derek losing his powers from both Stiles and Peter’s point of view. First we have Stiles who for the first time seems to take notice of it:
And then Peter divas his way in and we have the second take on Derek’s problem. And based on his creepy reactions, I feel like Peter is somehow gonna use this to his advantage.
But back to Stiles. So far he’s the only one in the pack to know something’s up.
And it all comes together when Derek apparently is going to die. We see a beautiful zoom in on Stiles’ reaction and frankly, I don’t understand why no one’s making a big deal out of it because it is.
And shipping aside, it does make sense for that zoom in to be on Stiles’ emotional reaction because he was the one to see it happen before his very eyes earlier that day. He’s making connections. Derek really is in mortal danger.
There’s absolutely no coincidence to any of it.
LASTLY. Let me remind you of a certain dream scene that has yet to be addressed.
That is all.
