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.

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?

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode Fifteen: “Amplification”

Screenshot (22)
Do you know the way to San Jose?

Spoiler Thoughts:

    • I’m glad they all let Lydia just hang out all safe and all in Arkam Asylum all this time.
    • If I was even remotely close to critical, I’d have a living will made out demanding I be taken to Hill Valley Hospital.
    • “Put my body out on the street before you take me to Beacon Memorial.”
    • I feel like Melissa has enough experience by now to not hang around when a creepy elevator gets to her floor.
    • Somebody take up a collection and buy poor Parrish a shirt.
    • I’m not so sure I think drilling a hole in someone’s head is going to release anything but cerebrospinal fluid.
    • If you are in this pack, and you are still questioning Stiles’ plans like they have a chance of success, you might have already got a hole drilled into your head.
    • Well I guess we’d feel worse for that orderly, but she was kind of a bitch to Lydia, so…good luck.
    • Liam, surprised that Scott’s Mom is still mad at him for almost killing him.
    • I wish Kira wasn’t always the weak link.
Screenshot (23)
You gotta win one for the Asians, Kira.
    • No one thinks she can do this Scott. Her results are not confidence-inspiring.
    • Why don’t they just knock this dude out and take his keycard?
    • Who’d notice outside? It’s not like Eichen House spends on outside lighting.
    • This Eichen House guard is the only person in Beacon Hills trying to do his job right.
    • Poor naked Nelson.
    • Poor naked electrified Nelson.
    • Did Kira and Malia really think short shorts were the best break-in outfits?
    • Maybe they would have had a better chance of blending if they stole some scrubs too.
    • OH MY GOD, DID THAT GUY JUST SAY DR. FENRIS
Screenshot (26)
FENRIS
    • WITH GIDEON EMERY BACK AS DEUCALION
    • Dead.
    • Wow, Kira is producing sub-optimal results with this standing-and-doing-nothing method.
    • Deucalion! So good.
Screenshot (27)
I am badder than thou.
  • I’m not sure they have time for a brawl at this point.
  • This would have been a more suspenseful episode if we didn’t already know Theo and his gang end up walking out with Lydia.
  • Mrs. Martin should probably go home.
  • Everyone seems a little more surprised at the naked man on fire than you’d think, considering they were expecting him.
  • These fights are always the ones where I wonder why everyone suddenly forgot they could change into super powerful creatures.
  • I guess Mountain Ash, but they did just break apart a steel door.
  • This wasn’t enough to make Liam angry?
  • Can’t help thinking Posey just got tired of putting on the makeup. Now, a werewolf transformation consists of contacts and a couple of dental caps.

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode Thirteen: “Codominance”

Spoiler Thoughts:

    • Tamlyn is the poster mother for Tough Love.
    • I must say, these girls have pretty hair for all that dust and exertion.
    • Kira is not excited at the thought of staying in this dust bowl with the non-exfoliating team.
    • Kira seems way more anxious at the staying forever part than the part where she has a spear stuck straight through her chest.
    • Oh My Goood!  THE JEEP.
    • Aww. Liam is so sorry, Scott.
    • After all, it’s not like he’s even the first three of your friends that tried to kill you.
    • Stiles is now the expert at forgiveness. He is rewarded for this knowledge by the gift of his jeep’s life.
    • Oh Stiles. I had a leak like that last week that probably going to run me around a grand.
    • If this beast turns out to be Mason, I will be so mad.
    • I feel like this conversation is supposed to humanize Theo and scorpion girl for us, but since we saw them kill their sister and dad respectively, I am skeptical.
    • I find the Beast so amusingly cute, for some reason. It’s like the dragon in “How to Train Your Dragon.”
    • Liam is in the dictionary under “no chill at all.”
    • Well I don’t see blood stains on Scott’s chest, so that seems like an improvement.
    • Stiles, how well did you think it was going to work, taking your barely-running jeep out into no-man’s land?
    • Oh look, it’s Scott’s Teacher of the Year.
    • Mason = smooth.
    • Liam and Hayden are demonstrating why lab partners are never a good idea.
    • How does this teacher expect them to solve the mystery together without discussing it?
    • Tamlyn is demonstrating some classical Asian parenting right here.
    • Wow, even way out in the desert, gas is only 3.83.
    • Stiles finally came clean. See?  Scott will always understand, unless he’s in the middle of a total freak out.
    • This starry backdrop looks like something out of “Dark Shadows.”
    • Ok, Kira seems to be taking a little too long to figure this cause and effect out.
    • Theo is getting his clock cleaned pretty good here.
    • Tamlyn had to pause for one more display of badassery.
Screenshot (3)
Tamlyn is gonna cut herself a bitch.
  • The skinwalkers were powerful, but not as powerful as Stile’s jeep.
  • Stiles and Tamlyn are all “…so, things been ok with you?” “Yeah, pretty good…”
  • DEUCALION.

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode Seven: “Strange Frequencies”

Screencap from http://teen-wolf-mtv.wikia.com/wiki/Teen_Wolf_Wikia

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Nice Liam.  Maybe you should have gotten Mason to break the news to her.
  • Poor Hayden.  And on the other hand, chances are good she won’t need another kidney.
  • GO TAMLYN.
  • Oh Kira’s all mad at her Mom, because Kira almost killed her.  Seems fair.
  • It was never that clear to me whether Tamlyn still had her kitsune power, or if she had handed it all off to Kira.
  • So Stiles is going to leave his phone on, streaming video all night?  He must get way better battery life than I do.
  • Stiles’ jeep has seen more awkward convos play out than any other jalopy in Beacon Hills.
  • Pretty Theo.
  • Oh, pretty child-killer Theo.
  • Parrish, I don’t know if Lydia’s legal.
  • Boy, that is some swift karma from making out with an underage girl.
  • The playing card is very Manchurian Candidate.
  • Ok, this plan seems even more free-form than their usual plans.
  • These doctors don’t seem like they move all that fast.  Maybe everyone could just try running?
  • Why would all that blood spatter onto Stiles from Theo taking a fist to the face?  Like that would have to be arterial blood to spray like that.
  • NOOO, NOT THE JEEP!
  • Damn it, Parrish.
  • Mrs. McCall and Sheriff Stalinski seems so shocked that the corneal grafts were taken from dead people.  Gonna be a hard sell to convince someone alive to give you their corneas.
  • Either I can’t identify them under all the blood and…deadness…or Kira just iced some total rando.

 

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode Three: “Dreamcatchers”

Screencap from http://teen-wolf-mtv.wikia.com/wiki/Teen_Wolf_Wikia

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Because of course, she would eat everyone but the evilly guy.
  • Well, hard to say whether that was better than getting eaten.
  • Lydia is maybe not the best Driver’s Ed teacher.
  • Mason is the best. So sleep-enhanced.
  • Man, this AP Bio teacher is the worst. Why would she hate Scott? Scott is the Hot Girl!
  • Kira better get over here, or she’s only going to be left with her supernatural parent.
  • Tracy has the grossest stuff come out of her mouth.
  • Wow, Kira didn’t even bother to check on her Dad. Cold.
  • I guess it would be tough to explain why you’re taking her to the
      Vet’s.
  • Why would you have poor Stiles help hold her down, when Malia is right there?
  • Oh Denton. Wear a mask and gloves, for God’s Sake.
  • Well hey, that went pretty poorly.
  • GET OUT. Linden Ashby is dating his wife?!
  • Mason is just beginning to realize the Horror that is Beacon Hills.
  • This is the part where Kira should have spent a little of that sword practice time on her electrical/fire powers.
  • Ok Kira, this might the time to call 911.
  • Well those are pretty crappy doctors. 1/5 stars on Yelp.

 

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.

Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode 11: “A Promise to the Dead”

Spoiler thoughts:

  • Fun fact:  Drilling a hole into your own forehead won’t make an eye grow there, either.
  • Still don’t get how broke the McCalls are all of a sudden.  RN’s do pretty well, and Mrs. McCall can apparently work ER or OR.
  • Mason is either the nicest guy ever, or getting set up to be the Biggest Bad.
  • Doesn’t Malia’s dad wonder where she goes every night?  And morning?  And when she comes back all covered in monster blood?
  • Derek, apparently the first werewolf to ever consider that real estate and banks might be more reliable than a subterranean vault under the high school.
  • Eichen House is the worst place ever.  If you take your family member there, it better be because they ate at least 5 people, or they are not gonna make it.
  • Hey, way to not kill somebody, Peter.
  • The real tragedy of Teen Wolf:  Scott McCall has never seen Star Wars.
  • Secondmost real tragedy of Teen Wolf:  Derek doesn’t have a TV.
  • This is not the best fighting we’ve seen from Scott and Kira.  If she couldn’t dent the thing with an actual sword last time, why would she think slapping a berserker with a chain would do anything? Why not try electrocuting it?
  • Kate wants to know why Scott is so special.  If he fought like this all the time, we’d want to know too.
  • I feel like Parrish had a number of options here, and enlisting the help of someone who’s been bleeding out for who knows how long to help him unbend a rebar was maybe not the most intuitive of them.
  • So, is the benefactor thing all done then?  There effectively was no benefactor?  Nobody benefited except the assassins who killed a couple low-levels and then went back to their lives with a few mil?
  • I would think if all his friends started missing Scott, and Kate shows up with an extra berserker who clearly has their skull belted on, they might get a little suspicious.
