I actually really love this scene. A couple of people have called it a throwaway, but I actually think it was a Really Important moment. This was Scott pointing out that Boyd is a PERSON and a person who MATTERS at that. A person with a first name and a last name. Allison, to some degree, forgot that. Chris quite frankly never even considered it. To Derek, I think, Erica and Boyd were and are about his failure more than they ever were about the people they are (though that may be changing; yay for character growth). But for Scott, Boyd is his last name. Vernon is his first name. That little frown, that twitch of his face as if he’s thinking about the fact that he’s never called him Vernon and wondering if he prefers Boyd or just always got called Boyd or all the other things people didn’t realize about him…
In an episode that seriously dehumanized Vernon Boyd in problematic and heart-wrenching ways… Scott stuck up for his humanity. Vernon Boyd is someone who needs help. Someone. ALWAYS.
scott mccall saves little kids from being murdered and alternatively saves boyd from the trauma of killing them and scott mccall doesn’t want allison’s last memory of her mom to be a bad one even though she tried to kill him and scott mccall makes sure the victims of unfortunate werewolf attacks are okay to be left alone even if he’s in a hurry and ♥♥♥ scott ♥♥♥ mccall ♥♥♥
#i could get behind this #like when cora’s finally in her right mind and settled in with derek and isaac at the loft #isaac bringing her a bowl of cereal in the morning #her smiling at him #then derek clearing his throat from the couch and looking at isaac like ‘dont even think about it’ #and isaac just shrugging #winking at cora and leaving for school #cora going all ‘i think i like him you chose a good one big bro’ #and derek groaning like ‘please no just /NO/’ #mmm and isaac and cora shoving at each other playfully during training sessions #whispering and laughing while derek’s trying to talk to them #and derek getting /this close/ to losing it every time #yeah i could dig that (via alphavenger)
