The Cast of Teen Wolf when they were their characters’ ages…
(or as close as possible for those that have been given ages on the show)
- So, what does that one do once it ticks down? Spray you with water, make a loud noise?

all the things i ship ★ pacey witter and joey potter
this is about how you carried my bag off the bus yesterday. this is about how when we go to the movies and you go and you buy popcorn, you always make sure you bring back a napkin so i don’t wipe all the grease on my jeans. and this is about how just last week, when we were at miniature golf, you took all of the shots first so i would know the correct path. you taught me how to drive. and last year at prom, you knew that the bracelet i was wearing was my mom’s. you kissed me first, sweetheart. the second time, you counted to ten before doing it again just in case i wanted to stop you. you bought me a wall. we were alone on a boat for three months and you understood without a word why i wasn’t ready. do you have to ask me now why i am? pace, i’m gonna count to ten…and then i’m going to start kissing you. and if you don’t want me to, then you’re just gonna have to stop me.
ten, my love…

They’re scenes all too familiar to any TV viewer: A woman is shoved down, she screams or sobs, her eyes grow wide and then blank as she wills herself to be anywhere else in the world. Lately the small screen has felt particularly thick with such moments of sexual horror, as writers have been churning out story lines in which our saints, our heroines, and our hard and cruel women too, are raped or forced to relive their nightmare of it. Try to imagine a singular abuse endured by an equivalent number of male characters. And yet it seems whenever a female character needs a juicy arc or humanizing touch, writers fall back on the easy, awful crime of rape.
No one would accuse Scandal’s First Lady, Mellie Grant [Bellamy Young], of being a saint, and God bless that woman for her rich and weird tangle of needs and motivations. She had established herself as one of the show’s best characters- so wounded in one moment and callous the next- when we were given a flashback episode to Fitz’s early gubernatorial run: Mellie, her eye firmly on the prize, tries to engage in a late-night strategy session with Fitz’s drunken bull of a father. Suddenly the man forces her down on the sofa and rapes her.
Many fans found the act a cruel device to trigger viewer compassion for a woman it isn’t always easy to like. This strikes me as problematic. One already felt so deeply for Melli’s toxic and vulnerable brew, so why subject the audience to yet another scene of a woman’s physical humiliation? The crime here is unnecessary. Granted, this is a show that burns through plot, but Mellie’s rape seemed like a cheap landing of a writers’-room storyline wheel. There are countless plot-generating life obstacles that don’t involve sexual assault [see: The Good Wife or, for that matter, almost any show with a male protagonist.] We didn’t need to see Mellie on her back to know or like her any better.
And why must female characters be likeable in the first place? Take terrifying Clarie Underwood [Robin Wright] from season 1 of House of Cards, for instance. You think she cares if we like her? Talk about someone who’s never complained to her book club that she’s sick of people-pleasing and doesn’t know how to take any “me” time. So how strange, how disappointing, to learn in season 2 that Claire was the victim of rape in college. It’s not that women like Claire don’t get raped, or that stories of abuse and survival and the cost of resilience aren’t important ones. But on the flip side, can’t we enjoy standing aghast in the face of Claire’s ruthlessness without saddling her with such an excruciating foundation? “You think I don’t want to smash things?” Claire snaps at her husband, Frank, after he flies into a rage when she identifies her attacker. “I know what that anger is more than you can imagine.”
Here’s something else to imagine: the idea that there are stories to tell about the sources of a woman’s anger, her ambition and fear, her brokenness and resolve, that don’t involve pinning her under some man’s heaving chest." -

I agree. I thought the attack on Anna was unneccessary—a mere plot device to show something going on “downstairs.”
