is anyone else sad about the anti-development between allison and jackson?
and i’m not talking ship wise. as soon as jackson started reaching out to allison in season one i was thrilled at the possibility of their friendship. jackson has danny, it’s true, and god bless him, but he desperately needs someone else that he can lean on, and allison is someone that not only calls him out on his bullshit, but also just tends to bring out the sweeter side of jackson.
when they were both feverishly trying to figure out what was going on around them in beacon hills they developed this rapport in which they became comfortable with each other, so much so that jackson actually drops his guard enough for this to happen:
which is no small feat considering how he keeps everyone at arms length. i mean we know he hasn’t said “i love you” to anyone in 11 yrs, confirming all the suspicions that it’s not only difficult for him to admit how he feels or that he cares out loud, but nearly impossible.
their budding friendship was just so refreshing and kept me wanting more. sadly it seems it was over as quickly as it began, leaving me bummed, but ultimately i understood since fairly soon thereafter all hell broke loose and everyone’s mind was preoccupied.
however after rewatching the promo for the next episode i couldn’t help but have my jallison!friendship feels renewed. i just feel like after everything went down at the end of last season and the very beginning of this season, it would have been really wonderful to see this relationship picked back up.
and it’s not like it’s so implausible-jackson’s sought allison out before when he needed to talk, so why couldn’t he have done the same thing in the midst of the big “werewolves are among us” reveal? when jackson was going through all the craziness of “nothing” happening during the full moon and the subsequent “rejection” of his body to the bite, he really could have used someone to talk to and support him. now yes, i’m aware that danny was immediately outside the bathroom stall trying to be there for jackson, and again, god love him for being such a good friend, but in these situations he’s at a disadvantage and unfortunately just can’t do much to help since he doesn’t know the full extent of what’s going on, which is why allison, who’s already in the loop, would have been such a good alternative choice.
if that had happened, or if allison had maybe made that first step, then perhaps the friendship that i was so excited about in season one could have progressed and we wouldn’t have the upcoming scenes of jackson yelling and intimidating allison (who is in the guy’s locker room for unknown reasons) to look forward to instead.
now, my only hope is that because jackson’s dialogue before allison is backed against a wall and the kanima claws make an appearance is,
“what are you gonna do, allison, when you’re stupid boyfriend turns on you?”
that maybe he’s actually trying to convince her not to be so dependent upon scott as her only ally? maybe he’s trying to tell her in his own special kanima-rage way that even though he’s going through some epic and dangerous changes, and has made some really awful choices, that she can still trust him? that he hasn’t hurt her as the kanima yet and he doesn’t mean to?
however, that’s obviously a huge long shot given that again, two seconds later we see her against a wall and he’s got his paralytic claws all up in her grill-but what can i say? i’m masochistically hopeful lol.
basically i want to make it clear that i’m not excusing any of jackson’s douchey/the kanima’s murderous actions, but if anything comes out of this huge turning point in his plotline tomorrow, i hope it’s the friendship between allison and jackson eventually reigniting.

oh sweetie, you just wait.
Piper and Leo are so cute…
seriously every time i watch the scene in theatricality where finn freaks out over the bedroom redecoration my heart breaks a little. when he starts using the f word it’s like i’ve been socked in the gut…and i’m not even gay. how people can use that word and actually think it’s okay is beyond me and thankfully finn comes to his senses otherwise i’d have to cut a bitch.
