Jackson Whittemore is really Jackson Hale and no one can tell me otherwise. I know Colton left for Arrow and it’s still unknown if he will ever return, but this shit right here, this is canon. It was never explained how Derek’s claws, a beta’s claws, could trigger dreams/memories inside Jackson. It was never explained why Peter’s touch made Jackson’s wound glow. It was never explained why Jackson had such a connection to the Hales and the Hale house, and it wasn’t just because he wanted to get bitten so badly. There was something there that cannot be explained in another way, that was supposed to build up to the truth about Jackson’s real family. I don’t care what kind of poor Malia storyline Jeff came up with, I also don’t want to blame him since it was Colton’s decision to leave, but to me, Jackson will always be canonly the real Hale offspring, Peter Hale’s son.
