Cut to the jeep where we get some truly amazingly old-school green screen driving. I mean, that is some serious like black-and-white Cary Grant type shit going on there, it’s kind of mesmerizing.
Stiles is apparently trying to drive Derek back to his house, but Derek protests that he can’t go back there while he can’t protect himself, because Derek is not an idiot and despite the whole getting-shot thing, he’s got pretty decent self-preservation instincts.
God, I just love these two so fucking much.
I love that Derek isn’t too stupid to keep up with Stiles like Scott, or ignores him like pretty much everyone else. I love that even though Stiles is (justifiably) scared of Derek, he’s still willing to talk back to him and call him on his shit.
So while they’re pulled over by the side of the road Stiles asks if Derek dying in his car is an actual possibility (a legitimate concern, because driving around with a dead body would be bad for Stiles on many levels), and Derek shows him his Bullet Wound O’ Doom.
Stiles threatens to drag Derek out and leave him in the woods for dead because he’s a little freaked out by this whole thing.
Derek threatens to rip Stiles’ throat out. With his teeth.
Terrified and aroused.
Meanwhile in the Awkward Jeep of Awkwardness…
HOW MUCH DO I LOVE THIS? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS…
I mean, THEY ARE STILL SITTING IN THE FUCKING JEEP SOMEWHERE.
They would have gotten out of school at like 2, 3ish? And now it’s pretty damn dark out, which in the early fall would be like 6pm? 7?
So they’ve basically been sitting in this car together for what, 3-5 hours?
HOURS. THEY’VE BEEN HANGING OUT IN THAT CAR. FOR. HOURS.
I’m mildly obsessed with how they passed the time.
Did Stiles pull out his homework? Did they put on the radio? What kind of music does one listen to while sitting in a jeep with a dying werewolf? Did they play games?
Or did they just sit there and snark at each other?
INQUIRING MINDS NEED TO FUCKING KNOW.
