Teen Wolf, S6E8: “blitzkrieg”

...And then there were five. And Theo.
…And then there were five. And Theo.
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:

  • Man, Nazis!  In America!  Who would have thought?
  • Well, on the one hand, Mr. Douglas is a Nazi, and on the other hand, he just minused the number of Nazis in the room by one, so kind of a wash.
  • Poor Noah Stilinski, still wondering why he never noticed all those boarded up windows on that one side of his house before.
  • Ok, I don’t know anything about string theory except in cinema shorthand it usually means someone’s headed to CrazyTown, but I feel like even the crazys have some rationale for where they put the pins and the strings.
  • Peter, always a Helper.
  • Now if Malia is disappointed in her Dad by this time, she has only her own ill-founded expectations to blame.
  • Maybe Melissa could have gone for the gun at that point?
  • Theo!  I trust him.
  • Liam, this is maybe not a decision you should make unilaterally.
  • Plus, it’s not even your sword.
  • You have to admit, the Nazis had a wide range of interests.
  • Grenadier Able is beginning to realize that he may have backed the wrong horse.
  • How did they even get Parrish?  Last we saw, he went for a walk in the woods.
  • What if someone grabbed the Ghost Rider’s gun and whip?  Then he couldn’t take anyone, although I guess he could still mop the floor with them.
  • What if they shot him with his own gun?  Then some poor shlep has to sit on the same bench with a Ghost Rider for all eternity in the train station.
  • Hayden couldn’t just untangle herself from the whips while Liam was holding them?
  • Poor Noah.  Never catching a break.
  • Nazis are pretty black and white.
  • Here’s a question:  If Douglas has been in a tank since the 1940s, how did he get out and immediately have a California accent?
  • Well, on the other hand, if the Ghost Riders take everyone, that gets them through the rift, too.
  • Wait, I thought Noah missed his wife’s death because that night he was with Malia’s dying family in the car?  Or am I confusing everyone by now?
  • Peter’s redemption.
  • Banshees are so creepy, even the Ghost Riders don’t want them in their train station.
  • So this is apparently the “Empire Strikes Back” moment for our gang.

Teen Wolf, S6E7: “Heartless”

“…Because you loved him.”
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:

  • Theo’s sister, showing the “Once Upon A Time” folks what it really looks like to rip out a heart.
  • This part was never all that clear to me:  So Theo killed his sister so…the Dread Doctors could give him her heart?  So he could become a chimera?
  • It always kind of seemed like this was Theo doing it the hard way.
  • Theo’s not having a great Groundhog Day.
  • “It’s ok.  You don’t have to stop.”  OH OK, *rip*.
  • Malia not so much for forgiveness.
  • Scott letting the babby take the wheel.
  • Meanwhile, the sheriff is doing a little home renovation.
  • Claudia showing a lack of nonplussedness at finding a hidden room in her own house.
  • Ugh.  If I was Theo, I’d rather go back to getting my heart ripped out than watch Liam and Hayden PDA.
  • What was that with his sister, anyway?  Was it Theo hallucinating while Malia beat him up?
  • Look, if you’re going to analyze each idea to see if it’s bad, Stiles would never get anything done.
  • Given that Peter has gotten better from worse burns than this, and actually from death, I’m not sure why he should be all that concerned.
  • Fun fact:  Just because a medication works topically, it doesn’t necessarily follow that it works injected into the heart.
  • Glad Peter not only recovered all his skin and hair, but also his stylish stubble.
  • I get the feeling Mrs. Martin still doesn’t get the whole “being a hero” thing.
  • Really?  They never tried closing the doors to the cage before starting this whole debacle?
  • Given that the Ghost Rider kind of clearly has his mouth sewn shut, I’m not sure chatting is on the menu.
  • Poor Parrish is never privy to any of the plans, but always gets called in at the last minute to burn his shirt off.
  • I also still don’t get why Lenore didn’t just move to a different town?
  • Like, if everyone in my neighborhood disappeared, I’d either move, or take over everyone’s property by squatter’s rights and be a millionaire.
  • Evil or not, Peter is always the only guy in Beacon Hills who ever looks like he’s having fun.
  • I like how after awhile, anyone can talk to the Ghost Rider and understand him.  Like Parrish was just the catalyst.
  • Parrish must have to buy shirts by the dozen.
  • Man, don’t you hate it when the Ghost Riders hypnotize your Hellhound?
  • Maybe they should try grabbing him around his pelvis, since apparently that part never catches fire?
  • Mr. Douglas came by, presumably to start singing “Tomorrow Belongs to Me.”
  • I feel like Malia didn’t have her plan all that well worked out.
  • Here’s a thought:  Why doesn’t Theo remake the barrier as soon as Douglas goes through, thereby trapping both of them in there?
  • Parrish going off for some alone time?
  • Wow, the Ghost Riders have an enormous pineal gland.  No wonder Douglas was so anxious to munch on one.
  • Peter finds himself small fry for once.
  • Meanwhile, Corey’s all “wonder where everyone else went to?”
  • Mr. Douglas wanted to disappear an invisible guy with a magical whip for a long time?
  • That was a very specific longing.
  • Mason never gets a break.

Teen Wolf, S6E3: “Sundowning”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Beacon Hills High must get their teachers from “Creepy Subs R Us.”
  • Whether Mr. Douglas is a chimera or has TB, it’s pretty equally inappropriate for a school teacher.
  • Finally a class that Kira might have done well in, and she’s already off the show.
  • His cough would be terrifying, but it’s basically me with my annual sinus problems.
  • That was one good facial peel the Dread Doctors gave him.
  • I never understood how anyone thought Malia belonged in high school, when she had clearly never had any education past when she was five or whenever she went off to be a coyote.
  • Apparently you can’t live in Beacon Hills without having father issues.
  • Lydia has the worst superpower ever.
  • Be as charming as you want Argent, showing up in a woman’s kitchen at the crack of dawn unannounced is not ok.
  • So far, Argent has probably smiled more this episode than all his other appearances put together.
  • Liam might not be ready for the big league yet.
  • I feel like Malia’s tactics would only work in a town where your BFF’s dad is sheriff.
  • This is a pretty long time for them to realize Elias is totally demented.
  • Another Asian dude!
  • Is there some reason why they couldn’t spread Mountain Ash around Nathan’s house instead of McCall’s house?
  • It’s not a season of Teen Wolf without a big dance party.
  • Dementia cured by the power of Math.
  • “No one doubts you.”  I’m not so sure you’re right on this one, Mason.
  • Wow, Elias was incredibly perceptive and also a complete jerk.
  • Oops.
  • Oh nice Corey.  Pretty sure you just doomed everyone at this party.
  • This is why we doubt you, Corey.
  • I feel like they have no chance of cleaning this place up before morning.
  • Parrish!  And with a shirt on for a change!
  • Like we actually thought bullets were going to do anything to this obviously not totally alive dude?
  • Actually, up close, the Ghost Rider’s skin makes him look a little like Groot.
  • Ugh.  The thought that his mom and dad would have been perfectly happy and alive without him will do wonders for Stiles’ self-esteem when he gets back.
  • Meanwhile, Liam has screwed up almost as far as it was possible for him to screw up.
  • Linden Ashby is doing a nice job with this scene.  It’s too bad he was never given more to do before.
  • Ok, as someone who has taken an anatomy lab, I’m going to say that I wished it was that easy to find and extract a pineal gland.
