    Victor Stein is by far the most important and most powerful member of PRIDE; I don’t see how any of the PRIDE members would dare to try to kill him. His machine simply didn’t work once.

    -- Geoffrey Wilder and he are the most flesh-out members of PRIDE—all the other parents seem almost one-dimensional. Wilder himself is really only 2-dimensional. James plays the only 3-dimensional parent.

    * James Marsters was part of the promotion for Runaways and it seems very doubtful he’d sign onto a series as a series regular on a TV series that films in Los Angeles if it was only going to be a short-term part. James in interviews—in my opinion—seems to reason he’ll be on the series as long as the series isn’t cancelled.

    Moreover, Victor Stein is the only parent who seems to be trying to do good in the world. The other parents seem only in PRIDE for selfish monetary reasons.

    * One of the Runaways was trying to prevent her crush friend and her blonde pretty friend from being together. One of the parents is a former gang member who seems only in PRIDE for money and power. One of the parents is the CEO of a tech company but we’ve seen zero signs she’s actually qualified for that and probably only has that position because of PRIDE. 2 of the parents are essentially hippies who only seem to have any money, power, and resources because of PRIDE.

    The Runaways are all entitled spoiled ‘rich kids’ who seem to have little—if any—concern for anyone outside of the (310) area code.

    Victor Stein is an a-hole to his wife and son but his wife doesn’t seem to contribute anything to PRIDE (she’s simply Victor’s wife and mother to his son), doesn’t seem to contribute anything to his business and the world, etc. Victor wants his son to get high grades and to be a force for good in the world.

    Victor is trying to save Earth and the human population—I don’t see how Victor is less sympathetic than any of the other parents and I could argue he’s more sympathetic than some of the Runaways (for example, only the Asian one wanted to inform the police of their parents’ activities and even that seemed mostly because she considered their parents killed her sister).


    * You’re correct regarding the power dynamics of the parents, I should have only written “Regarding the parents, James Marsters plays the only parent (Victor Stein) in which the man is the ‘alpha’ or ‘dominant’ one”.


    * Teams need a leader or leaders (a single leader generally is better). Alex Wilder seems the leader of the Runaways.

    Gert wasn't trying to do anything. She just looked upset when she thought Chase and Karolina were a thing. (Just like Karolina is now obviously upset that Nico and Alex are a thing.) Not that she actually had to worry about that.

    I'm not sure why you're bringing that up, anyway?

    What is your point?

    Obviously wrong, since Alex was very concerned with saving Andre, and they all went along with it and tried to save him, and that Karolina was very worried about Destiny and wanted to save her. And what evidence do you have that the kids don't care about anyone outside of their area?

    Maybe it's time to accept that the parents are all horrible people and this show's villains, while the kids aren't horrible people and are the show's heroes?

    No, it doesn't, and no, he's not. They're a group of friends who discuss everything they do.
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.
