Teen Wolf, S6E6: “Ghosted”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Man, worst Canaan Day block party ever.
  • I love the guy who is trying to skateboard away from the Ghost Riders.
  • I guess the reason no one gets in their car to drive away from the Ghost Riders is because cars are generally faster than horses and it would make for a pretty short story.
  • Good thing Canaan is like next door to Beacon Hills.
  • How do they think they’re going to do surgery on Argent without getting a consent?
  • Theo!  Well, hard to trust him by now.
  • Oh hey, hi creepy pineal gland eating guy.
  • You know, Liam, this dude might not, strictly speaking, be trustworthy.
  • “Go after him!”  That’s right Scott, tell the one person who has no supernatural speed and is wearing heels to go chase the kid down.
  • Guess what?  Virtually every medication Melissa probably gives in the hospital will also probably kill you if dosed incorrectly.
  • It’s probably the least amount of pressure she could be under.
  • I feel like maybe Argent could have given the recipe before he started passing out.
  • How is trapping a Ghost Rider going to help us?  It doesn’t seem like they are big talkers.
  • Liam, maybe you should consider having more than one idea.
  • This lady super loves living in Canaan.
  • It has been so long since Scott werewolfed, he forgot how?
  • Hope Caleb doesn’t wish us into the cornfield.
  • I’m not so sure we needed a date on the video to know that Caleb was different.
  • Oh, banshee convention in Canaan.
  • TAMLYN.
  • If I had a choice, I’d totally bring back Kira’s Mom over Kira too.
  • Hope Kira isn’t needing her sword wherever she is, because her Mom snagged it.
  • Maybe you should wait until Scott gets back and discuss this, Liam?
  • Tamlyn beating tracks out of there, once again showing superior survival skills to everyone else in Beacon Hills.
  • Finally SOMEONE was persuaded to put on the werewolf makeup again.
  • Banshee fight!
  • I feel as if watching the same scene over again would have been more effective if we didn’t already know what Ghost Riders looked like?
  • “You can kill whoever you want” seems like a bad promise to make to Theo.
  • “Where’s Scott?  Where’s Stiles?”  Theo frantically looking for anyone with a brain.
  • So the Ghost Hunters brought back her dead son?  Or did her banshee-ness bring him back?
  • Scott is beginning to think it was a bad idea to give Liam his housekey.
  • Well I think the difference between Lydia and Lenore is that Lydia could conceivably move to Los Angeles after everyone gets taken, instead of just staying in Beacon Hills like a crazy person.
  • Apparently Sheriff Stalinski hasn’t been told about Claudia’s affection for that piece of wallpaper.

Teen Wolf, S6E4: “Relics”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Argent not looking like he’s all that excited about Melissa’s backup.
  • “Some kind of help is the kind of help that helping’s all about/Some kind of help is the kind of help we can all do without.”
  • Wow, Melissa, I’m not so sure she’s gonna be ok.
  • Well, good thing you brought those bandages.
  • Malia, still making friends and influencing people.
  • Scott not so sure Corey’s gonna be all that much help.
  • I’m sad that Mrs. Stilinski is probably totes evil when she makes the Sheriff so happy.
  • I feel like they have so many to protect at this point, they don’t need to worry about someone who doesn’t want protection.
  • “Mason, with Stiles and Lydia not here, you’ll be playing the part of the brains tonight.”
  • Mrs. Martin has made a lifestyle out of trusting exactly the wrong people.
  • I see Mrs. Martin is adopting the Scully “I’ve-seen-that-everything-abnormal-is-true-yet-I-will-continue-to-deny-it-because-the-writers-believe-this-is-how-smart-women-behave” methodology.
  • If she just said Claudia was her BFF from high school, I’m doubting her unbiased perspective.
  • Jayden is the weakest link.
  • Actually, most of Beacon Hills’ lacrosse games end in a free-for-all, TBH.
  • Parrish to the rescue!
  • Parrish is like “I trained so hard as a deputy, and everyone only cares about the Hellhound.”
  • Those are some pretty effective disappearing bullets.
  • It seems counter-intuitive that they keep letting everyone else get taken, and only seem to care about protecting the one person who actually wants to get taken.
  • HIPPA hates Melissa.
  • Man, one of the only Asian guys in Beacon Hills, and Nathan has to be a dick.
  • Parrish is all wishing they would have told him in advance not to wear his good uniform.
  • Oh, thank God he had flame-retardant shorts on.
  • Well Argent, maybe you should have shot him.
  • Kind of a defeat for the good guys tonight.
  • One good thing for Liam, I guess.
  • Hey, that is pretty friendly that Argent and Ms. McCall are getting.
  • The Next Gen that would have been.
  • ROSCO.

Teen Wolf Season Finale, S5E20: “Apotheosis”

I see London, I see France…

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • See, I feel like I missed something here. When did we figure out the pike was the cane? How did Gerard get his mitts on it?
Screenshot (62)
I’m hammering out danger. I’m hammering out a warning.
  • Deaton is all “no Stiles. Being a vet doesn’t make me an expert on fetal cannibalism.”
  • Theo, this might not be a good time for this, given as how you’re exsanguinating.
  • Now, I’m not sure how Theo’s killing her here, because every other time we’ve seen this, someone’s jabbed their hand straight into the abdomen, which seems kind of effective.
  • Here, he’s just kind of…hugging her to death? Even though she’s clearly spiking him with paralytic toxin?
  • Well we’d feel worse about this, but Tracy was kind of a jerk anyway.
  • Deucalion is always thinking “amateur.”
How to Succeed in Werewolfing Without Really Trying
  • Sebastien picked up all Mason’s knowledge like a planarian.
  • Wow. Who would have thought that a still-alive evil force             would be a problem when it woke up? Besides everyone?
Screenshot (64)
The next American Idol.
  • Ok, I don’t even know how Sebastien could tell this was Marcel.  It looked like raw meat in a trench coat.
  • What was Marcel’s deal anyway? Sebastien didn’t seem all that into him.
  • Sometimes you should just Let It Go.
  • I feel like Malia wouldn’t just be cowering upstairs while Braeden plays Battleship with the Desert Wolf all by herself.
  • This whole “life is energy and can’t just be gone” theory seems a little less plausible when you consider…death?
  • Poor Lydia. She is getting all the crap this season.
  • Isn’t a nine millimeter pretty small? I might go with the musket.
Screenshot (65)
Sheriff, debating how much damage his pachinko-ball gun will do.
  • Clark, this is a bad time to get insubordinate.
  • RIP Mrs. McCall’s house.
  • We always hear of how good Talia Hale was. We also know how anybody (except Scott) becomes an alpha wolf, tho…
  • Theo, how are you ever going to get a pack when you keep trying to kill everyone even on speaking terms with you?
Screenshot (66)
Theo is beginning to look less trustworthy
  • Lydia has pretty much run through her medical deductible by now.
  • Argent, lowering the boom down on Emo!Parrish!
  • Ugh. We get to listen to Kira’s rambling voice mail twice.
  • Yeah, I’m not so sure this is exactly how cortisone works.
  • Plan A was Chipotle?
  • Man, no one’s healing powers are working worth a damn lately.
  • By this time, you’d think everyone would be wearing rubber soled shoes.
  • Stiles, son. What would make you think you should even say boo to the Desert Wolf?
  • Sebastien is having a hard time taking any werewolf in a hoodie seriously.
Screenshot (68)
Sebastien not a fan of today’s “Abercrombie & Fitch” werewolves.
  • He is not impressed with Theo’s power-taking abilities.
  • I KNEW we could trust Deucalion!
Screenshot (70)
I TRUST HIM
  • Ouch. Deucalion practices tough love.
  • Gerard, you rat-bastard!
  • Argent continues to not be anybody’s fool.
  • Word of advice: Don’t accept an invitation to the Argent’s family dinner.
Screenshot (71)
Shortly before they started singing “Cat’s Cradle.”
  • Again, I don’t feel like Malia would make such a poor showing here. She was pretty determined to kill her Mom before, and yet in this whole standoff, I’m not sure she gets one punch in.
  • Ouch. Clawed her right in the ovaries.
  • Unless that shard is way off in his shoulder, Stiles should probably be concerned about a punctured lung, I’m thinking.
  • Liam once again looks like he stopped off at the barber shop while he was prowling around the sewers.
  • How does that possibly belong to you, Sebastien? Your sister made it with her own blood. You just…leaned on it a little, once.
Screenshot (73)
Look, he just wants the pike his sister impaled him on so he can eat everyone with impunity. Is that so wrong?
  • Dude can wipe up the place with Scott and Liam, just from drinking out of a puddle.
  • God Damn it Corey, you are totally useless.
  • OH. SNAP. Theo just had the worst International Woman’s Day ever.
  • Glad it worked out a little better for Liam than it did for Derek.
  • Well TBH, Sheriff, Stiles probably had less to do in this story than in any other season.
  • The Skinwalkers are all “uhm…could you hurry this up a bit?”
  • Well I think it was nice to include Alison in this end montage, but it does kind of accentuate the notion that Kira is Scott’s Knives Chau and not Ramona Flowers.
  • Although this season has maybe some more inexplicable plot elements than a lot of the earlier years, I thought it was pretty good.
  • I like the atmosphere of Eichen House, although it’s hard to know by now why anyone would go there ever, when there is everything but bats hanging from the windows.
  • I think Parrish turned out to be a little of a red herring this season, since there really wasn’t some big cataclysmic battle between the Hellhound and the Beast.
  • Actually, most of the fights between them, the Beast came out looking kind of bored.
  • Kira was really the weakest link this season, and it’s probably a good idea that she goes away and gets some core competencies under her belt before she tries to be a part of the Scooby gang again.
  • Not a huge fan of Hayden as of yet, but she’s definitely improved from her start.  I guess we’ll see if she holds onto her undead-dark side.
  • Poor Theo.  Even though he was such a cool bad guy, if you think about it, virtually none of his schemes ever worked at all.
  • In large part, no doubt, due to Deucalion.  I refuse to believe a bullet could do more than slow him down, so I imagine we’ll be seeing him again someday.
  • Pretty meager storyline for Stiles overall, although maybe Dylan was busy with Scorch Trials, and they had to write around him.
  • Well, until next season, Teen Wolf.  Now back to pick up those earlier seasons I missed…

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode 17: “A Credible Threat”

Reason #32 on Why Taking The Bus Sucks.

Spoiler Thoughts:

    • Sleepover at Parrish’s!
    • Argent is always the guy you call when you’re looking for someone totally ok with shooting you.
    • Parrish is moving too fast? Or you’re moving at the speed of Scott’s SAT prep, Argent?
    • Why were all these kids on the bus in the middle of the night?
    • Where does everyone get their mountain ash? It’s like WalMart sells jars of it.
    • Oh hrm.
    • Well I guess it was all above-board if she left her knee socks on.
    • Invisible Guy is ready to get the Hell out of Dodge.
    • Good thing Invisible Guy didn’t get any scars on the moneymaker.
    • Lydia, Beacon Hills has never ever had a regular lacrosse game.
    • Parrish, this is maybe one of the few instances where the library is not that much help to you.
    • COACH.
Screenshot (35)
A person locked away from the murderous supernatural in Beacon Hills is a happy person.
      • This is how people survive in Beacon Hills.
      • Oh WTH Argent. Why are you going to stick poor Parrish in a transmogrifier?
      • I dunno guys. The Beast doesn’t look a whole lot like a werewolf. I think that’s why we’re not calling it “The Werewolf.”
      • Parrish still hasn’t learned not to ask for rational explanations of the irrational.
      • Can’t anyone give poor Parrish a washcloth or something at least, before they lock him in the fridge?
      • Ugh, Kira. So awk.
      • Admit it. You never thought Coach would forfeit the game either.
      • They would have had a better chance taking the replacement coach over to the Argents’ and have him/her watch Parrish freeze in the basement.
      • What makes us think a normal person wouldn’t see blood on their shoes and clean it off? 
      • …What?
      • Nooo, Parrish!
      • Dammit Kira.
      • Of course, if Kira had any control over her powers, she would have been a good person to put on electrical short-out duty, but no.
      • I’m not so sure Kira should totally be dissing this girl’s accent.
      • I feel like maybe this wasn’t the right tact for this girl to take, if she was trying to make Kira less aggressive.
      • Stiles must be the only non-supernatural lacrosse player in Beacon Hills.
      • I’m guessing Desert Wolf isn’t really into charity games.
      • Oh man, they just put Stiles in a Xander shot.
Screenshot (39)
Come on, Stiles hasn’t been this derpy for ages.
    • Liam, I feel this is an ill-considered move.
Screenshot (38)
Don’t leave me hangin’, bro!
  • “What is that?”   Kira, have you even been paying attention in the pack meetings?
