don't you dare defenestrate me

[Battlefield Commentary]

Jeff Davis: Now, as a writer, some scene takes forever to write, and they just drag along, and you feel like death at your computer. This scene took me 15 minutes to write, and it came out to be one of my favorite scenes. For two reasons: Dylan’s performance in this scene is extraordinary, and this was actually picked up by our director Russel, and his direction of it was beautiful.

[…]

Jeff: But this is one of our heavier episodes, and relying on Dylan O’Brien in this first scene is unusual for us, to bring the drama. But the amazing thing about him is he’s a really good dramatic actor.

[…]

Jeff: One of the things I really like to do in scenes like this, especially as this scene is what I like to call “take a meeting scene,” you always want to build it around something visual. So I thought of the idea of he’s knotting the lacrosse stick and he’s constantly toying with that knot and the reason is he feels like his life is unraveling. So subconsciously you’re telling the viewer, this is what’s happening to him. He’s not just talking to us, he’s showing what he’s feeling by constantly pulling that knot tighter and tighter. Now the panic attacks go back to Stiles’ history with his mom dying. 

[…]

Jeff: This kid has beautiful eyes, too.
