Nah. The Marley bunch were a group of sad remixed/corrupted photocopies of the original gang. Not interesting in the least. I feel like Puck's brother was really the only one of them worth holding over to this new season but instead they went for Kitty for who the hell knows why.
"but most of this cast feels like nothing more than seat fillers, so giving them any storyline at all feels silly". That is a joke right? Do you WANT them to feel like seat-fillers? Not saying wrapping up all their stories in one episode was the best way to go but if you don't want them to just feel like fillers your going to have to allow them some story to develop. That second generation New Directions with Marley and the rest were awful and boring and sad corrupted photocopies of the original gang. This group at least feels different and fresh and are not taking multiple episodes to do simple things like ask a girl on a date, resolve sibling issues or come out and tell your teammate he's being a dick. I end up wishing this had been the cast for season 4 instead of that bunch of shadow retreads.
I love this coming full circle with the werewolf mythology stuff. Originally Stiles thought silver would harm them but Derek threw that theory out the window. And now, with finally addressing the long-legacied ancient Hunter family's last name "Argent". Obviously Silver can kill werewolves. Just not the kind of silver we were all thinking of. When they first mentioned the family's name I thought it was just a clever reference but now that we know how old the family is and how long they have been in the business I think they might have just been the ones to inspire that aspect of werewolf mythology.
