Why is Alcide even on this show? Seriously... Why? Like... when the writers are "planning" these seasons who the hell pipes in with "man, you know who we really need to keep around, this Alcide guy! This werewolves addicted to that old gay vampire's blood plot has run its course but this guy is just dynamite!" I mean it got to the point where they surrounded him by an entire cast of disposable guest characters just as shitty as him. I'm half expecting a fucking odd couple spinoff with him and Sam at this point.
It's so bizarre to me. I mean it's not quite as bad as the Iraq revenge ghosts and slaveghost babyknapping... but holy shit. I should probably just drop this show, but the summer viewing is pretty thin as it is already.
