I feel it’s important to point out that Stiles’ dad is an investigator, and his hero is The World’s Greatest Detective.
His dad is a hands on sheriff, actually working cases, instead of being wrapped up in managing his office. He’s a good investigator. Hell, an over invested, creative investigator, with protective instincts that would put Bruce Wayne to shame. Beacon Hills is HIS TOWN and he’s got people to take care of.
Scott isn’t Batman, you guys (he’s Superman, duh). Sheriff Stilinski is Batman and Stiles is Robin. But one day he’ll grow up into Red Robin and then eventually strike out totally on his own.
But my point is, Stiles’ dad is his real hero, and that’s why it’s so terrible for Stiles to think about disappointing him.
“I’m not a hero dad.”
“You were that night.”
