Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode Twelve: “Smoke and Mirrors.”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • If Kira can shoot electricity out her hands, I don’t know that she needs to be wandering around in the dark all the time.
  • Kate’s whole story doesn’t really jell that great.  She came to the temple where the Berserkers were all happy to see her because she was the Bone Woman?  What kind of qualifications did she fill for that?
  • Braeden’s not ok with Derek dying?  Honey, you are not alone.
  • The true horror is that apparently no one in Beacon Hills has seen Star Wars.
  • Peter is proof that if you act confidently enough, and look good enough in a v-neck, people will flock to you as a leader no matter how evil/crazy you are.
  • Oh hey, Derek gave the faux triskelion to Liam!  Because it worked so well for Kate, before.
  • Man, I wouldn’t be Mason for anything.
  • Yeah, Tamlyn Tomita’s back!
  • Ok, granted I’ve never been in that situation, but I’d think the gaping stab wound in her stomach would be painful enough to start the healing process without adding more pain on top.
  • Stiles is clearly the better Watcher here.  It’s a wonder Scott made it through, if this is all Derek had up his sleeves.
  • Also, why is Liam only killing Derek?  Did Stiles get enough abuse last season that he had an extra “not be killed” card for this one?
  • Here’s a thought:  If you roll up on an ancient evil temple that you already know is filled with evil-y things, maybe look out the window before you open the car door.
  • Well if that wasn’t the weirdest in-show commercial ever.
  • Sheriff Stalinski is the awesomest, as the only person to figure out that just repeating ineffectual measures isn’t that good a defense against the Berserkers.
  • Hey, another fight where everybody tries to slap fight a Berserker while somehow forgetting that they can turn into supernatural creatures.
  • I think this might have been more effective a scene if Scott had had his curse broken by his relationship to Stiles, rather than Liam.
  • Ok, what the what?
  • No seriously, what?!
  • What did wolf!Derek! do to Kate?  Lick her roughly?  She seemed all mauled, but there was no blood on Derek, so…
  • Also, hi nude!Derek! How did he get out into the bushes from where he was sitting around dying earlier?  Was getting stabbed to death with a bone knife part of the evolutionary process?  Was actual death part of the evolutionary process?
  • Kate is shocked, shocked that her bro shot her.  I am not so sure this should have been that much of a surprise.
  • I love Liam’s expression when Peter throws the table at him:  “HDY!”
  • Kate’s dialogue here is reminiscent of Mother Gothel in “Tangled:”  “Great.  Now I’m the bad guy!”
  • Well these Mexican hunters certainly turned out to be less totally crazy than they seemed in the first episode.
  • It is convenient that Tamlyn married a guy who is not only a history teacher, but who can also carve obsidian as a hobby.
  • Eichen House:  A franchise from the fine people who brought you Arkham Asylum.
  • Anyone else but me think it might be a mistake to double bunk two of your worst evils together?
  • Also LOL on how everyone thinks the creepiest thing in the world is looking at an eye.

    1. Yeah, Peter’s awesome. I’ll miss him being able to snarkily interact regularly with the rest of the gang, but he has a habit of turning up again. Plus, I feel like Malia will still want to try to get info about her Mom out of him, and it’s not like she doesn’t know how to get to Eichen House…
