To people in the tags getting mad at the Portland Scooby Gang for gaslighting Wu: rock on.
To people in the tags getting mad at Hank for not telling Wu in the last scene, holding Hank equally as culpable as Nick and the others for gaslighting Wu: I’d caution you to consider the power dynamics at play in the relationship between Hank and the rest of the Portland Scoobies.
Like Wu, Hank has been a victim of their gaslighting. Hank developed PTSD due to Adalind’s sexual abuse and Nick’s refusal to acknowledge what she was doing to him. Hank spent the first season finale guarding his closet with a double barrel, because he was so frightened. When he went to get help, he panicked when the therapist touched him (I don’t think it is a coincidence that a female therapist drew such a strong reaction from him after what Adalind did to him). He almost shot his goddaughter when she woge’d (again, I don’t think it was a coincidence that he panicked at seeing a blonde, female wesen). At the end of season two, he was surprised by his abuser at his front door in the middle of the night and then beaten by her cronies so bad he landed in the hospital. When Monroe heard about this, he responded with a rape joke.
So, the trauma is still very fresh and Hank is affected by mental illness due to it. Just being in a psych hospital is probably really scary for him; he could be incarcerated there without his consent. In a psych hospital, Hank’s mental state is under incredibly high scrutiny. If Hank had an intense emotional reaction or a flashback while telling Wu what really happened in that final scene, Hank risked being forcibly hospitalized. Regardless of the possibility of being institutionalized however briefly, Hank had an interest in not reliving that emotional trauma.
Hank spent the entire episode up until that last scene trying to convince Nick, Rosalee, and Monroe—people who gaslighted him and belittled his trauma—to not do the same to Wu. Nick, Rosalee, and Monroe did not listen to him.
Let’s redirect our ire towards the people who have a history of gaslighting kehrseite and away from one of their victims.
