They leave, because they should. Or they find someone else. And, some of them forget me. I suppose, in the end, they break my heart
current status: casually waiting for the day lydia martin is respected as an actual character and no longer used solely for the development of her male counterparts (◡‿◡✿)
Kira is not a main character, so as much as I like her, her playing a side role in the finale episode is something I can forgive.
Lydia is now carrying the weight of being the only woman on the main cast. Lydia just lost her best friend in the world, the woman who has carried Lydia emotionally through everything she’s been through.
We got full scenes dedicated solely on Chris, Isaac and Scott all mourning the loss of Allison.
We didn’t get that for Lydia.
We got her spending the entire episode supporting the weight of one of the male leads. We got her silent, compliant and doing nothing other than stand by while other people avenge the death of her best friend.
I wanted to see Lydia break down. I wanted to see Lydia freak out. I wanted to see Lydia throw things. I wanted to see Lydia get angry. I wanted to see Lydia’s eyes flash with totally human intensity as she takes the lead, as she tells those boys to sit down, shut up and do as they’re told because she was not going to let Allison die for nothing. She was not going to let the creature that took Allison from her walk away unharmed.
I wanted to see Lydia be the leader she was always meant to be. I wanted to see Lydia be the hero.
