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, S6E1: “Memory Lost”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, I was out of town when the season started, so running a little behind.  Still mopping up tears from this being the last season.
  • It’ll be interesting to see how they work in O’Brien’s absences for “Maze Runner” and his injury, although it kind of sounds like he disappears right after the beginning for who knows how long.
  • If there’s one thing you can depend on in “Teen Wolf,”, it’s that everyone but Mason has a crappy car.
  • Northern lights?  For some reason I thought Beacon Hills was in SoCal.
  • I feel like Hayden has been around Beacon Hills long enough to know strangers are always bad news.

screenshot-103

  • That’s a pretty big assumption to make, Scott, considering it was probably a couple months ago you saved everyone in town from getting killed by chimeras and the Beast.
  • Wow, Sheriff Stalinski really has embraced the whole supernatural methodology.  Wasn’t it a thing that the nails-into-the-neck thing could give you brain damage or something?
  • Yeah, it seems like if you’re in a car, you shouldn’t worry so much about outrunning a guy on a horse.
  • Last title sequence! So sad.
  • Oh, the parents got front billing!  Yay!
  • Kinda unfortunate that no one seems able to hang onto both parents tho, if you think about it.
  • I guess everyone’s pretty used to seeing Malia naked?
  • I think I’ve seen bullet holes in windshields before, and they didn’t look like a cannon ball went through them.

  • Poor disbelieved Stiles.
  • While I love me some Stiles, I’m never a fan of these segments where he’s so goofy, he looks like a complete idiot.
  • It’s like it’s been so long since Stiles got to be Fun!Stiles! They occasionally forget how to do him.
  • Liam a little busy for Scooby activities.
  • New Physics teacher!  I trust him.
  • Man, Lydia always gets beat up.
  • Fell right on the hole in her skull, even.
  • How did they come across this house, from the car with the magic bullet again?
  • The captions aren’t working on this episode, which is killing me.
  • Oh it’s the kid’s house…where he was apparently living on his own with ghosts?
  • Ask not for whom the ghost cowboy comes Stiles–he comes for thee.

screenshot-107

  • Ok, if all the compasses were doing it, why did you have to steal the teacher’s?
  • Liam, I’m not sure popular vote is how one becomes the alpha.
  • Poor helium thief guy. We hardly knew ye.
  • NOOO STILES!  TELL SCOTT WHATEVER YOU WANT NOW!  DON’T WAIT!
  • Man, that scene with his dad was a heartbreaker.
  • Oh Stiles.

 

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 16: “Lie Ability”

Screenshot (29)
Why fight matches usually have weight divisions.

Spoiler Thoughts:

    • If the best encouragement Theo could give me to attack someone was “you’ll heal,” I might start thinking he didn’t have my best interests at heart.
    • Parrish seems like he’s going pretty easy on people trying to poison and electrocute him.
    • What in God’s Name did the guy whose superpower is changing colors think he was going to do against a Hellhound?
    • So you kind of tapped the guy trying to electrocute you against the wall, but fried the guy who was holding your wrist?  Harsh, Parrish.
    • Man, Mason may need a new date for the prom.
    • Theo, if you want to recruit people for your pack, maybe perforating them with a steel bar isn’t the best opener.
    • Err…what?
    • Man, her hair is pretty curly still, for all that writhing around.
    • DEUCALION
Screenshot (30)
I trust him.
    • Deucalion, giving out fatherly advice. He’s such a giver.
    • Scott isn’t the best spy.
    • Huh, I totally thought Meredith was dead by now.
    • Scorpion girl is pretty psycho.
    • You would think Kira would have read up on electricity after she discovered she was electricity.
    • All this whining and self-doubt isn’t really getting the job done, Kira.
    • It’s a measure of how messed up Teen Wolf usually is, that it never occurred to me how weird this scene where they just casually stroll through the room of cringing naked guys was until way afterwards.
Screenshot (31)
In Beacon Hills, we call this “Tuesday.”
    • Maybe Meredith was just trying to say your skin was soft, Scott.  No need to immediately start thinking everyone wants to get stabbed in the back of the neck.
    • Liam seems to be sweating it a little here.
Screenshot (32)
It’s ok Liam. Just use all that energy you had when you TRIED TO KILL SCOTT.
    • Parrish seems like he’s probably a little occupied right now, with the impalement and all.
    • Poor paralyzed Deucalion.  I trust him.
    • Theo, you have a better chance at Brother of the Year award than of ever getting Stiles to trust you.
    • Killing your sister =/= believing in Santa on the naïveté scale.
    • Valach could have at least put on Sinatra or something.
    • Poor Parrish is constantly waking up completely confused and horrified. And probably chilly.
    • Malia and Electroguy having the worst trust exercise ever.
    • Stiles and Theo are the Mulder/Krycek equivalent.
    • Theo:  King of the Unconvincing Rationalization
    • Lydia would probably be more sympathetic to Valach’s sad history if he hadn’t just drilled a hole into her head.
    • Lydia is horrified at having to wear that ugly hat.
    • Posey makes the worst face here. Like he’s had experience lighting aerosol cans before and none of it was good.
    • Mason is my spirit animal.
    • Oh wow, that is why I don’t like loud noises.
Screenshot (33)
Itai
  • Dylan, keeping in shape for Maze Runner 3.
  • Theo is always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
  • Mason is all of us.
  • So unpleasant, Hayden.  Don’t you be mean to Mason.
  • Parrish burnt through the Mountain Ash?
  • Isn’t the point of ash, it’s what doesn’t get burnt up?
  • Wow, Parrish totally did the Charles Atlas “go away little man” maneuver on Stiles.
  • Holy…
  • Well to be fair, Mrs. Martin, you did put her into that Hellhole.
  • This is really taking a toll on that poor jeep.
  • Scott’s all “worst backseat passengers ever.”
  • Deaton, man, you knew they were coming–why for did you not have that stuff drawn up already?
  • Deaton, man, you know how to check if something’s alive or dead. Why for are you making Stiles go through this?
  • Well to be fair, the other guys did help a little.
  • But maybe Lydia’s Mom will get off Stiles’ back now.
  • Coach!  Coach is coming back!

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 Fourteen: “The Sword and the Spirit”

Screenshot (9)

Spoiler Thoughts:

    • Gerard meets the Dread Doctors.  Not sure which is more creepy.
    • How is it that evil people are always so much more effective than good?
    • Oh, all the ugh.
    • You know it’s a good sitch when the beetles are screaming.
    • While I trust Theo, Malia, maybe shouldn’t.
    • Wow, that needle was so long, I’m surprised it didn’t stick out the other side of her neck.
    • Oh, we found out blond deputy’s name!  Strauss!
    • What kind of weapon falls apart if you twist the hilt?
    • Oh Malia.  This looks pretty bad.
    • Worst refraction ever.
    • This pack is not so much with communication.
    • Bad news when Malia is the peacemaker.
    • This is probably a bad move, Liam.
    • How messed up are things when Scott totally creeped me out just now.
    • Aw, Scott forgave his BB.
    • Braeden is the only one with any sense.
    • Poor Lydia has probably not seen any of the other regulars in like a year now.
    • That is a harsh school, when they want you to do homework while you’re in a coma.
    • Lydia’s Mom apparently doesn’t ship it.
    • Did Scott stop bleeding finally?
    • Oh hi Gerard.
    • “Who’s the old guy?”  Liam speaks for all the new viewers.
    • Wow Argent.  I’m not sure that’s covered by homeowner’s insurance.
    • Oh Theo.  That was maybe not trustworthy of you.
    • Parrish was not the best bomb defuser.
    • Gerard could maybe try burning Parrish’s hand or something.  Why’s he gotta go straight for the moneymaker?
    • The Argents have a difficult family dynamic.
    • Although I guess I’d take the Argent family over Malia’s.
    • OMG Lydia, break the damn glass already!
    • I can’t believe that creepy orderly still has a job.
    • Although maybe there is a limited pool of people willing to work at Eichen House.
    • The Beast…just wanted some furniture?
Screenshot (10)
I’ll just take this, thanks.
    • I like how the Beast broke through the wall and got a chair.  Like Ikea was too far.
    • Hello Handsome.

Screenshot (12)

  • Ok, I know a lot of things happened at the last minute, Deucalion, but I believe it was Scott that helped restore your sight in the first place.
  • Everybody made up!  Or at least hates each other less now!

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode Twelve: “Damnatio Memoriae”

Screenshot (1)

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • I wouldn’t be a Beacon Hills deputy for all the tea in China.
  • Ugh. I am totally watching poor Hayden’s sister walking around this murder building with my eyes partly closed so I don’t have to see her getting eaten.
  • Lol. I can’t tell whether that thing looks more like the police officer that was after Stitch, or the dog-demon thing in Ghostbusters.
  • I think she’s already running, ma’am.
  • Liam, I’m not sure Hayden’s all that into you.
  • Chimera girl has some unresolved Dad issues.
  • “You know what it is, don’t you?” Maybe you, Parrish?
  • Also, what the Hell happened to Parrish, after he melted out the gate at Eichen House?  He never seems that fazed about his alternate personality jaunts.
  • You’d think he’d at least start running out of shirts.
  • Although I guess you’d think they’d all start running out of shirts by now.
  • Glad Scott figured out what every teenage girl figures out eventually, and wore a red shirt.
  • Scott is not so much with the string theory.
  • Argent may not actually understand what a safe is for.
  • Good Lord, Stiles. Why would you go down into the basement?
  • Why is the whole hospital empty, if this isn’t a dream?
  • Well a) I do feel Stiles is smart enough to have appreciated this distinction a long time ago, and b) Sheriff Stalinski might be on morally grey ground here.
  • Although, let’s face it:  Who among us would not shred evidence for Stiles?
  • Aw. Stiles metaphorically had his eyes turned, like Derek.
  • Oh Derek. Where art thou?
  • Theo is kind of running a hedonistic pack.
  • Man, for a minute, I thought Scott was hearing heartbeats in Malia. Like she was having twins.
  • Deaton! I had totally forgotten what had happened to him.
  • Mason is the best.
  • Lydia’s situation doesn’t seem to have improved.
  • Oh ugh. It’s the bathtub where Lydia got traumatized by her grandma’s trepanning.
  • Oh we are going all Crimson Peak up in here.
  • Fun fact:  You grab someone’s arm and tell them “this isn’t a threat,” it’s pretty much a threat.
  • Scott is not a whiz at bandaging.
  • No touchee, Theo.
  • Oh hey, this is sounding more and more threat-y.
  • Mason is Liam’s Stiles.
  • Not to be too picky Lydia, since she seems like the only one who’s helping you, but wasn’t curly haired girl evil before?
  • I’m not so sure this little test would convince me that Theo and I were on the same side.
  • Liam, King of the Screwed Up.
  • I would maybe not totally trust undead evil Hayden.
  • OMG. How is Gerard STILL alive?
  • Wow.
  • Does…this facility not serve salads?
  • Some discreet product placement.
  • TAMLYN
  • Pretty elaborately done hair, for girls who were buried in the ground.
