thetruthisno how about Seth and Pickles’ relationship and the idea that Seth is insanely jealous and that’s why he’s such a dildo? And maybe possibly something to do with their parents treatment of them as kids and that’s led to how they behave as adults..?
Seth and Pickles are two very different people.
Seth is a massive free loader who fails at pretty much everything he does. He leeches off other people’s success and money, act’s like a massive fucking tool/douche, and yet has gotten nothing but love from his parents.
Seth is one character in Metalocalypse that everyone wants to see die, but will probably outlive most of the characters.
Pickles is the multi talented drummer of Dethklok. He does an insane amount of drugs and drinking and yet, despite the amount of mind altering shit he imbibes, manages to remain intelligent, kind and has surprising bouts of clarity.
From an early age Seth has been a massive dildo.
When he burnt down the garage he blamed it on pickles which started pickles on his path of drinking and drugs. This suggests that Seth has been putting blame on pickles for a while due to the fact that his parents believed him immediately instead of at least asking what happened.
Calvert and Molly show clear favouritism throughout the show to a ridiculous degree and we have no idea why they are like this.
There are times where a parent will pick one kid over the other for one way or the other. In this case I believe that they prefer Seth over Pickles because Seth is a good liar and is manipulative. Seth knows how to manipulate any situation in order to get what he wants.
And after Pickles started drinking, he didn’t need to do jack shit because Pickles was doing the work for him.
Seth has grown up with a feeling of superiority and lots of chances. I think that he is very aware that his brother is so much better than he is which is why he pins things on pickles. If Seth can’t be happy then neither can Pickles.
It’s because of this that Pickles has grown into an insecure man who uses drugs and drinking to get rid of the feeling of how inadequate he feels.
And Seth has grown into a spoilt man child who has lived by leeching of others and his parents. He doesn’t have to do much of anything to get his parents approval and he loves it.
Seth is so jelly of Pickles’ success and talent that he will use any chance he has to fuck him over.
And we see him do this.
He’s got his parents so wrapped around his fingers that his parents wont even acknowledge any of Pickles’ success what so ever. Pickles is the well done son guy, Seth know’s this, and he will make damn sure to keep Pickles on the bottom part of the family ladder despite him (Pickles) being the most successful, famous and bringing in the most money.
All of this over some petty jealously.
But Pickles isn’t dumb and although he does yearn for his parents love and respect he also know’s when to give up.
A lot of Seth’s power over him ended when Pickles told his mom to go fuck herself.
Seth might be rich and in charge of Dethklok Australia for the moment but his happiness wont last for long. Because he’s turned that place to shit just like everything else he touches.
(please note that his kids eyes are glowing)
And when he screams for help Pickles wont do shit.
Pickles doesn’t need his forgiveness. He doesn’t need his parents love. Pickles doesn’t need anything that Seth has and it’s that very thing that’s gonna bring Seth down.
