Is AJ mentally unstable? Like a legit Sociopath?
Don't get me wrong, I love AJ. I want to make it clear that i'm not an AJ hater. He's a adorable Clem protector and he loves Clem. That's all I need from someone. He's cool. But the kid is just a little ethically and morally twisted in the head. He just is. Something happened at the ranch that ruined him because what he displays is not in Clem's nature. Not being mean. He just really is clinically, like medically a bit NUTTY.
Instance #1 - Randomly Stealing Tenn's Toys
Now out of all the ones i'm going to mention, this one is the most minor offense because kids do this in real life. But it is just a bit of a insight into the irrational and quick tempered mind of AJ. We just got into this school, we are GUESTS and this kid is out here punking poor Tenn. Tenn woulda snuffed him if he wasn't carrying heat. AJ lucky. He damn Lucky lol.
Instance 2 - His imaginary "ticks" that everyone buys
I'm not sure who bought the whole "I elbow people in the nuts and bite viciously anyone who taps my shoulder" thing but I sure as hell didn't. We gotta keep in mind that sociopaths are born master manipulators. Look at charles manson for example. He'd do the most outlandish shit but he'd flip it to make you feel like you did wrong for judging him. AJ is smart as it is. If it is true, he has one rare, rare special disease. But I think he's got a plan in his head to do these things.
Instance 3 - Wanting Dibs on Abel
This part was probably the creepiest. After all that he has gone through with executing Marlon. He still has that uncurvable lust for pain and human blood. He literally argues with Clem wanting dibs to kill a man at 6 years old. Like calm down there. You aren't grown and killing people is never easy nor should it ever be fun. My Clem tried teaching him these things but at this point I think he might actually be a clinical sociopath and of course in this world their is no medicine to treat it. Kinda scary.
Instance 4 - He Tupac'd Marlon
Of course the most well noted of them all. And keep in mind what I said about sociopaths being master manipulators. Notice how AJ says "But I did like you said' to flip it all on you. He still demonstrates his lust for blood well after his atonement.
Instance 5- Kicking the wall, yelling at Louis.
When he was in the room kicking the wall, he wouldn't listen to Clem or anyone. He was in this angry zone and he had the look in his eyes. He also snapped when Louis told them they had to leave.
So do you think he's mentally unstable? Like clinically a hazard at this point? Or do you think he's just trying to do the right things and he's too young to differentiate right from wrong and is burdouned with too much responsibility?
