So cheesy so poorly planned

Derek Hale’s age…probably the biggest mystery out of the entire show. His age bounces around so much as the show continues to air, it just gets more and more confusing. Jeff says he has always known Derek’s actual age, however, I don’t believe it. First, Derek was supposed to be 19, then he was 23, now we don’t know.
I’m going to basically piece together canon facts from the show to reveal Derek’s age. I think I’ve done this before, but I can’t exactly remember if I thoroughly explained each detail.
Jeff said at the BiteCon panel that they have a guy who keeps track of certain dates and all that fun information. If Jeff or the writers actually come on Tumblr, perhaps they’ll see this add it to their “Show Bible”.
In order to figure out Derek’s age, we can’t really start with any details from seasons 1 or 2. As a matter of fact, we can’t really start with Derek, himself. We need to start with Jennifer Blake and her story.
Note that seasons 1-3b took place in the year 2011. This will be important when I get into calculations. Teen Wolf is NOT set in 2014. In fact, it just recently turned 2012 in their time.
First. Let’s bring up episode 3x08 "Visionary" which was the flashback episode. This episode showed us 2 major events that took place in the past.
- Derek killing Paige at the nematon, and unintentionally giving power back to the nematon.
- Deucalion being blinded by Gerard, which essentially lead to the creation of the Alpha Pack.
In episode 3x09, Sheriff asks Melissa if she could pull up medical files dating back 10+ years (Sheriff’s estimate as to when the events took place) about a woman that had been brought into the hospital with slash marks all over her body, hanging onto life.
Melissa is able to pull up one file which matches exactly what Sheriff describes, and the file is dated "3/02". Now, this could either mean March 2nd of an unknown year or March 2002.
Right now, we’re going to cancel out it being March 2nd of an unknown year, because we know Melissa went into the files searching for one that was dated 10+ years ago (according to Sheriff’s best guess as to when the woman was brought in). That means the medical files are dated Month/Year, not Month/Day. Month/Day wouldn’t make any sense anyways.
The only file that matched Sheriff’s description was from the year 2002, which wasn’t 10 years prior to 2011…but rather 9 years prior… Which means Sheriff Stilinski basically hit the nail on the head with his guess as to when the event took place.
The “Jane Doe” in the file is actually Julia Baccari a.k.a Jennifer Blake (Darach). After Kali had murdered her pack, she went after her emissary (Jennifer) and attempted to kill her. She didn’t go through with actually killing Jennifer, but instead brutally slashed her up and left her for dead.
Now, you’re wondering what this has to do with Derek’s age. Well, in the flashback episode, Derek Hale was 15 years old. In order to figure out what year he was 15 years old (so that we can calculate his current age), we need to use the canon details i’m about to walk you through next…
In episode 3x10, Jennifer and Derek are trapped in an elevator and Jennifer explains that Derek had unintentionally brought power back to the nematon by killing Paige. 9 years ago when Jennifer had been left for dead, she crawled to the nematon, touched it, and it gave her enough power to live.
Jennifer explains that Derek’s indirect sacrifice took place a few months prior to when she was attacked by Kali.
THIS means Derek had killed Paige a few months prior to March 2002. I’m guessing it happened late-December 2001 or January 2002.
This also means that the flashback episode where Derek was 15 years old, was set prior to March 2002. Meaning that Derek was 15 years old in 2002.
We now have everything we need to calculate his age for certain events, including: when he was with Kate, the Hale house fire & how old he is currently in canon.
If Derek Hale was 15 years old in 2002, that means he has just turned 25 years old in canon Teen Wolf.
The Hale House Fire took place in January 2005 (6 years prior to January 2011 a.k.a Episode 1x01).
If Derek Hale was 15 years old in 2002, that means he was 18 at the time of the Hale house fire.
If Derek’s birthday is actually December 25th, it means he probably met Kate when he was 17 years old, turned 18, and then she killed his family.
- In December 2001 or January 2002, Derek was a 15 year old sophomore in high school.
- Derek killed Paige, and unintentionally gave power back to the nematon
- Around the same time Derek committed this sacrifice, the alpha pack was created, and they started killing off their pack members & emissaries.
- In March 2002, Kali attacked Jennifer, slashed up her face, and left her for dead.
- With new power as provided by Derek’s actions a few months prior, the nematon saved Jennifer from dying.
- 3 years after the events in 2002, Derek was most likely in his 04-05 senior year of high school and met Kate Argent.
- In January 2005, Kate killed most of the Hale family by burning down the Hale house. Derek was 18 years old.
- 6 years later, Derek returned to Beacon Hills and he was 24 years old.
- He has just recently turned 25 years old, either in November 2011 or December 2011.
- Teen Wolf is NOW currently set in 2012.
Derek Hale is 25 years old in human years. To hell with wolf years. I hope this makes sense, and I hope I calculated everything correctly.
you know what’s great about literally giving ZERO SHITS about anything anymore?
it doesn’t matter.
Erica dead? Pffft whatevs, writing her alive in every fic ever. Ur wrong.
Twins being “pack”? LOLOLOL okay. Sure. You do that. WRONG.
Everyone’s super queer now, sorry Teen Wolf, you lose. Sorry MTV, you’re suckling at the testicles of me now. Derek’s gonna buy himself some nice area rugs. Those super thick, roped, tough ones. Stiles is gonna just start kissing boys left and right, all the time, everywhere you look BAM kissing dudes. Scott gets regular updates from Allison. She’s running a great recovery camp for young hunters escaping their families and wanting to do good. Saving people and shit. Infiltrating crazy hunter compounds, rescuing others like her.
And everyone is gay. Way gay. So gay. SO SO gay.
If you do not reblog this, you are in fact lying.
Hey, don’t you fucking scroll down
Two kinds of people in this world. The people that admit to mourning the death of a fictional character and the dirty fucking liars

1. I am so thrilled to have been named to the 2014 TIME 100. Shai’s essay is so kind and generous. That sentence about planets and moons is a lovely goal for us all to reach toward. Now, that said, I’m no prophet. I’m a guy who not too long ago tried to wax his chin.
2. Do I really look like that illustration?
