Now that I've had time to digest it, I'm kinda worried about Brad, too. I really want Kiera to have a person from an alternate time on her side, someone who understands her. However, if he believed in Kellog, setting off the beacon if the wrong Alec was killed could have been his mission. Completely agree with you about this Julian and our Alec. It's a shame they haven't gotten to know each other yet, because they are far more kindred than the combinations of their own time.

No, I wasn't trying to be rude. I was trying to be funny. Whoops! One of the main reasons I'm not worried about her back story or development at this point is because I fully expect it to come at a time when it makes the most sense for the story. When Peter discovers who she is and vice versa. Remember, nobody knows who she is, except Lydia. She's just a coyote girl who is learning to adjust. We know that's hardly the case and I think when the timing of Peter and Malia being in the know comes about, there will be a lot more development of her as a character. We'll likely learn about her birth, adoption and disappearance. Until then, she's underdeveloped because as a person she really has no background. She was a werecoyote kid lost in the woods, who blamed the death of her family on herself and was later found. Nothing too terribly important. She was brought into the pack because Scott is a good guy. He cares about the downtrodden, as do his friends. Give the show time. We're making a lot of assumptions about her based on one episode. We don't even know how Stiles feels other than he had sex with her. We know how she feels because she had someone to connect with like she never had before. I'm not sure, in an hourly series, what else there is to do other than introduce people in bits and pieces. It wasn't until the 3rd season that we learned why Stiles mother died, and her death shaped he and his father immensely. It just seems, from my end, that there is something else going on with Malia and the intense anger toward her. I think a lot of people are upset Stiles isn't getting his chance with Lydia, but she didn't want him any of the times he put himself out there. I'm not saying this is your case, but I'm reading some people judging a character negatively based upon very little actual airtime. Give her a chance.

LOL -- you're hardly indifferent to Malia. Sorry if I'm the first to point that out. That's alright. You don't have to like her. She's not going anywhere. Braeden did nothing but cycle in, escort the jeep and tell Scott to kiss Kira. She's hardly given me anything to work with at this point. Word is she'll be featured more. If she does rise above a motorcycle chick who shows up incrementally, perhaps there will be something to talk about.
I agree about the delight of sexual tension. It is great to watch when done well. But seeing people swing back and forth into and out of a relationship isn't nearly as joyous. Getting back together one time is it. More than that and it's a joke. I don't want to see that here.
If you'e watched every episode, then this shouldn't be new to you. How could you forget the Flynn and Provenza episodes? They have been standard issue for years. Major Crimes Season 2 Episode 9, "There's No Place Like Home" was classic and very much in the same vein as this. The episodes are not stupid at all. They're not only intelligently written and cleverly put together to showcase the comedic aspects of the terrific actors, but very entertaining and needed, especially as a buffer to the more often extremely dark episodes around them.

Regardless of the issue of sexuality, do you really think Bemmett will stay together? This show likes to explore new relationships and with only Daphne on the canvas to do it (since Toby is gone), I'm betting Bay and Emmett will have another falling out. I hope I'm wrong because I don't like the will they won't they style of storytelling. If they choose yes or no, stick with it!
Good catch. My first incarnation of the paragraph said he was transferred from a nonpaying job and I didn't catch the non when editing. Whoops! Thanks E.
One thing we probably can count on -- we won't see whatever is on the horizon coming! :-)
I think the fans he's speaking of were people who got wind of me including Malia in a poll over Kira and stormed the page in anger. These same people never voiced such an opinion during the run of the show, so any malice toward Malia was news to me.
