More reasons to respect Jess Mariano (and…as nearly always…hurt for him, too):
- He didn’t fight Dean.
- He didn’t tell Rory that Dean was threatening him…even when she wanted to be friends with him again.
- He didn’t complain (before or after the black eye assumptions) over the fact that “‘…if I fight you, Rory’s gonna think it’s my fault.” She would take Dean’s word over his, despite the fact that Dean was the one going behind Rory’s back and threatening/stalking/trying to pick a fight with her boyfriend. He accepted being mistrusted and falsely accused. (He was used to it.)
Why did I used to like Dean, again? *closes eyes painfully and shakes head*
