Fans like us, the ones who spend too much time on Tumblr — we’ve probably thought quite a lot about why Allison acts the way she does. But what about the average 16-year-old casual viewer? I’m not so sure that they’re going accept such a swift transition from the relatively peace-loving Allison of three or four episodes ago, and the Allison we just saw remorselessly shoot a teenage boy in the chest. I don’t mean that to be patronising, rather than just to point out that you really have to think about Allison’s backstory and family relationships to even remotely legitimise such a swift turnaround. Yes, Gerard is a psycho and an expert manipulator and, basically, a lifelong cult-leader, and yes, Allison is a vulnerable teenage girl whose mother just died, but have we really seen much of either of those things in conjunction with one another? — from Teen Wolf 2x11: “Battlefield” at Hello, Tailor.
