CAN WE TALK ABOUT MELISSA MCCALL?
This woman is a nurse at a ridiculously hectic and unconscionable short-staffed hospital. She typically ends up doing the job of most of the doctors whenever she’s on-call (which is ALL the time). She keeps up with all the supernatural shenanigans going on around Beacon Hills, not to mention she aides in police investigations because of course she has mad sleuthing skills too. She does all of this and still manages to successfully raise/co-parent 3 teenage boys (Scott, Isaac, and Stiles) only one of whom is her actual son.
Mother. Healer. Friend. Goddess.
I see my mother in Melissa McCall. I see my aunts, cousins, friends, friends’ mothers…. I see one of the most positive and realistic examples of single motherhood on television. I see one of the strongest written parental figures on any supernatural show.
I just needed a moment to express my undying love for Melissa McCall.
