* '''Played For Drama''': Marcy and Pike have been flirting with [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope taking a slide down the slippery slope]] into darker territory. During an attack on the city, they're separated from their comrades, and discover an injured, pinned Wesley -- who, upon spotting them, starts ''demanding'' their help. With no other obvious witnesses around, NoOneWillEverKnow if they just... leave him to his fate. Or maybe even help him along...

** Alternately: Despite seeming like a buffoonish JerkAss, Wesley is surprisingly capable of taking care of himself and doesn't have to ask the heroes for help.

** Alternately: Wesley's father Lord Robert has become very grateful to Lucas and his friends for constantly saving his son's sorry hide. He is also becoming increasingly fed up with his son's ridiculous sense of entitlement, which is causing Lord Robert all kinds of diplomatic headaches. When Wesley lashes out at them one too many times, Lord Robert finally has enough and starts yelling at his son to either start showing some proper gratitude to Lucas and his friends or grow a pair and start taking better care of himself.

* '''Deconstructed''':
** Wesley is emblematic of an out of touch ruling class, and his progressively shriller and more heartless demands lead Pike and Lucas to violently disagree on just how much they're supposed to put up with. Once the team disbands, the Emperor's forces meet no resistance.
** Alternatively, the heroes leave Wesley to his fate (or at least ''seriously'' consider it before deciding that since they're ''heroes'', [[SamaritanSyndrome they'll save him anyways]].)
* '''Reconstructed''': Marcy and Bianca notice how Wesley is dividing his protectors, and use a mix of threats, persuasion, and blackmail to teach him a lesson and get him to shut up and stay quiet for the sake of their chances of success.
