I really shouldn’t go into the Stephen x Cara tag. Reading stuff there just makes me all kinds of mad, but… seriously? People saying John treats Cara badly and doesn’t deserve her have either never been in a really bad relationship or are just so biased towards Stephen that nothing will ever be good enough. They certainly haven’t been watching the same show as I.
John and Cara have communication problems. He’s got a hard time opening up to her which is partly due to the fact that the one person he ever trusted used and betrayed him, and partly that he’s afraid she’d leave him if she knew his secrets because he sees himself as a killer/monster. Their relationship is also weighed down by the responsibility of leadership and John’s inability to let go and relax (for good reason I might add).
This has got everything to do with him and his inner demons and nothing to do with her. He knows he has to change because it hurts Cara when he shuts himself off, but bottling everything up to deal with it alone is not something you can overcome over night. John has never hurt Cara on purpose, he’s always been there for her when she needed him and is a very understanding boyfriend. He’s also never cheated on her or given her a reason to feel inferior or irrelevant.
People saying he bosses her around don’t understand the difference between not giving her freedom in their relationship and making decisions because he is the LEADER of the group. So far as we’ve seen he’s never ordered her around where their personal lives are concerned and even when they argue about the tomorrow people he values her opinion, even if the final decision is his (to be then completely disregarded most of the time).
Having problems, working them out together and offering a certain understanding for your partner are part of every normal and may I add, healthy relationship. John’s realized that he disappointed Cara and that he needs to try to be more honest with her. His failure to tell her about his ability to kill is the only transgression on his part I can think of and they worked that out. He’s not a bad boyfriend for battling trust issues and a fear of abandonment.
And let’s not forget, Cara cheated on him. But I guess that was totally justified because he’d been such an asshole to her, right? And after all Stephen is so much better than John, so why shouldn’t she, right?
Well, that’s not how a mature relationship is supposed to work and everyone who thinks otherwise probably shares a high-school class with Stephen. A guy who’s so immature and unapologetic that he thinks “It just happened” is sufficient justification for cheating on someone.
