WARNING: NEGATIVE CHRIS ARGENT FEELINGS
The thing about Chris, I think, is that when compared to the other hunters we know, he’s not that bad.
Kate is a mass murderer. Not to mention that she committed statutory rape and, later, sexual assault, assault, torture and attempted murder.
Gerard was crazy insane - murdered an omega, stabbed Scott, threatened Melissa, manipulated Allison so she nearly became a murderer, tortured Erica and Boyd, beat up Stiles.
Victoria tried to murder a 16 year old. Don’t even get me started about the bullshit of her suicide.
Comparatively, Chris is a good guy.
But this is still a guy who shot Scott just after he’d been bitten for no reason other than he was a werewolf.
Still the guy who mocked Derek because his family had died.
Still the guy who threw Stiles into a wall and threatened him.
Still the guy who drove a car at Scott, presumably with the intent of hitting Scott/trapping him between two cars.
Still the guy who shoved a gun in Scott’s face when he caught him making out with Allison.
If Chris wasn’t that bothered about Derek’s innocence/guilt, what about all the other werewolves he’s hunted over the years? How many werewolves has he killed on the flimsiest of evidence?
And let’s be honest, he’s not exactly bothered about the fact that he’s been involved in a genocide against a species just because they are different.
Just because he’s not as psychotic as the rest of his family, doesn’t make him a good guy. At best he’s morally dubious. At best.
chris is like diet soda to his family’s crazy murderous soda brand. it has zero calories but the aspartame can still kill you. like not actively participating in a murder doesn’t suddenly make you humanitarian of the year. that’s not how life works. that is like the bare minimum of a litmus test.
