Teen Wolf, S6E10: “Riders on the Storm”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Stiles!  O’Brien must have gotten a day off from Maze Runner.
  • Sheriff and Stiles!  Aw!
  • How does Sheriff think he’s going to hold all the Ghost Riders back when the whole town combined couldn’t do boo?
  • Everything always comes back to Roscoe.
  • Stiles is wandering the town all “there were more people back in the train station.”
  • The town is turning into another train station?  I guess this explains why they never run out of room in the station.
  • Stiles and a bat.  All you really need.
  • How is it that everyone taken shows up in a coma except the regular cast members?
  • A Nazi swooping in and using his creepy army to take over everything.  Wouldn’t that be horrible if it were true.
  • So much faster typing “Nazi” than “Alt-Right.”
  • “Wanna split up?”  “Never again.”  ALL THE SOBBING.
  • How come Peter woke up on his own last time?  Does he have a stronger connection to Stiles?
  • All that angst last episode and all you needed to get through was a horse?
  • How did Liam get through the barrier without getting fried?
  • I don’t know why Malia got in the way anyway, when she knew they weren’t going to take Lydia.
  • I’m also not even sure why they’re so agitated about being taken anymore, given that “taken” now means you get sent to another room of the school.
  • Ew, that is not a good look for Corey.
  • Stydia smooch!  Also the playback on the episode has a parsing error that keeps freezing on the smooch.
  • Gunfight at the Beacon Hills Station.
  • McCall/Argent smooch!  And not Alison and Scott!
  • I guess it’s just as well Alison isn’t around, because it would have been weird for them to be step-siblings and sleeping together.
  • Well Mason is experienced on ripping Dread Doctor cords out of people.
  • Wow, how many months has it been since Posey put on the wolf makeup?
  • I guess if you’re the producer, you get to save your time in the makeup chair for the winter finale.
  • “I’m not in the pack…but no one likes a Nazi.”
  • This is why we love Peter.
  • Oh what, now, all of a sudden, the Ghost Riders couldn’t hit the side of a barn door with those guns.
  • Hm.  Ghost Riders be all “time to go.”
  • Man, if no one likes a Nazi, no one really likes a Nazi Ghost Rider.
  • Have to say, I don’t know why the Ghost Riders were doing anything Mr. Douglas said to begin with, and I don’t know why they randomly stopped.
  • Melissa is certainly getting some mileage out of that Nine Herbs thing.
  • For some reason I thought Stiles and Scott had coordinated going to the same college together?
  • Well, ok.  I don’t know what they’re going to do for the last ten episodes if all the main cast leaves for college.
  • I feel like this story had promise, but became a little cluttered with the addition of Nazi Douglas.
  • As with last year, the appearance of a more readily-accessible villain like Theo or Douglas means that we never really get what the deal was with the Dread Doctors or the Ghost Riders, who just become kind of an unfortunate Force of Nature.
  • While it does seem as though they did the best they could with the Dylan O’Brien scarcity, I also think this season suffered from the Scott/Stiles deficit.  The new folk just don’t have the history yet that would make me care about them as much as the originals.
  • I guess that’s why they brought in the parents for such expanded roles.  Linden Ashby did a great job.
  • Last ten coming down the pike.  I guess we probably shouldn’t expect much more of Stiles at this point but I do think it would be nice if they brought back Derek since he was such a huge part for so long.
  • Also Deucalion, because Gideon Emery.
  • I like how they recently announced Scott’s Dad was going to be back, like everyone was clamoring for that, instead of going “who?”
