In many ways this Teen Wolf episode was a return to the kind of episodes we got in season 1 and 2 but honestly y’all, I just was not feeling it this week for some reason. There’s a decent ending and some fun stuff but like…idk
-The cold open for tonight’s episode was good in all the ways Teen Wolf is normally good, i.e.. a mix of scary (wtf is the Mute thing?), gratuitous (that shot of dude’s ass, shirtless but in sweatpants) and hilarious (the texting to voice app had me howling). Speaking of the Mute, how creepy was that scene of him basically feeding himself in a tube?
-Lacrosse is back! I know a lot of the fans missed having the sport in our lives and it was nice to have scenes of it back in Teen Wolf. It provided interesting conflict Stiles and Scott vs. Liam, Kira showing off her reflexes (though I wish she let that ball hit Malia in the head) and Stiles and Scott’s bromance.
-WHERE THE HELL WAS DANNY??????
-Can Teen Wolf PLEASE stop making Scott so fucking meek and tentative? Like that moment where he kissed Kira was great but otherwise they still aren’t giving me enough from this True Alpha. It’s getting there tho.
-That final scene was..interesting. On the one hand YAS FOR MORE MONSTERS but on the other hand like girl…Scott is a True Alpha, he can’t fight off a monster? Or pull Liam back onto the roof? It is interesting that Liam didn’t have a choice in the bite like Scott did but y’all whatever.
-Braeden just entered the scene looking like YES GAWD and I howled when she faked being the US Marshall. But for the love of god, did they have to be so obvious that Derek and Braeden were gonna be fucking in a near episode? Like they didn’t even try to be subtle.
-Apparently Derek wants to find Kate to get the color of his eyes back? Like…dassit? I…like…so…I don’t even know. Unless this means Derek becomes unhinged or something this is pointless.
-This “MALIA DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING ISN’T IT HILARIOUS” school joke is getting so tired. Like when she said “why do you guys understand it?” MAYBE ITS BECAUSE THEY’VE HAD ALL THE YEARS OF SCHOOLING REQUIRED TO BE IN HIGH SCHOOL YOU POS WRITERS!
-Oh yeah that Stalia make out…or anything Stalia related
