#well maybe you should have expected some retaliation given that your line of work was killing people
this whole speech made me eye roll. cry moar, Chris, seriously. particularly when your definition of what makes a rule has a lot in common with certain Texan politicians.
Pretty much my whole problem with this scene.
Chris knew what his sister had done. If he didn’t know when she did, he certainly knew by the time Peter ripped out her psychopathic throat. It doesn’t matter that she was his sister: she was not a good person. She was an arsonist, a murderer (who killed children), and a rapist (deception of who you are is rape, as is statutory). She was a monster. Peter is too, don’t get me wrong, but he’s the monster she made, and she got what she had coming.
Victoria Argent tried to murder a teenage boy, a werewolf who had harmed no one and was by all accounts a pretty dopey, well-meaning kid, because he had the gall to love her daughter. And she didn’t seem to take into account that Allison knew what Scott was by that point and chose to be with him anyway. She denied her own child’s autonomy and then tried to kill a kid. Derek’s bite was self-defense and in defense of Scott. I’m not even sure he was trying to bite her so much as he was trying to get him and Scott the fuck away from her. She then chose to commit suicide. Derek did not kill her. Chris and her did it themselves, at Chris’ father’s urging.
Gerard Argent is the final fucking you-have-got-to-be-kidding-me in this little rant of Chris’. He knows damn well what his father was, and no one made him do a damn thing. Our first introduction to Gerard is him viciously murdering an innocent homeless werewolf who just wanted to have a pack while the man plead for his life. He threatened humans, including Scott’s mom, at multiple points in time. He drowned Matt, an admittedly fucked-up kid, but he didn’t do it for that. He killed Matt to take the kanima, and then he used it to murder more people. He used Jackson like he was a tool, not a person. He used his own granddaughter as a weapon as well, brainwashing a messed-up girl and lying to her about how her mother died. He used Allison to torture and grievously harm her classmates, two kids who were fucking terrified enough to run right into the arms of an Alpha pack that used them as playthings for months. Gerard then used Derek Hale to become the very thing he preached against, the very thing he bullied Victoria Argent into killing herself for. Gerard was worse than Kate, and truthfully, probably made Kate what she was. He certainly stole a huge part of Allison she can never get back.
So tell me again how it’s the werewolves’ fault your family is destroyed. Because it looks to me like you did it to your damn selves, and honestly, I’m not sure why I should feel sorry that any of them are dead.
And while we’re at it, let’s talk about how Derek Hale hasn’t come after you. You want to talk about decimation? Your family burned his alive. The Argents took everything from him, for nothing but your own prejudices. But no matter what you do to him (smash his car windows? go after his pack of teenagers?), Derek’s left you and your daughter alone.
So the way I see it, you do owe him. You owe him and Boyd (remember the kid you let your father and daughter torture?) and Cora a helluva lot. Your family owes the Hale pack fucking everything.
