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.
  • OH MY GOD
  • MICHISLAV
  • STILES IS MICHISLAV
  • WHY WOULD YOU NAME YOUR KID MICHISLAV

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, S6E5: “Radio Silence”

“Stiles. Why did it have to be Stiles.”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Stiles!  In what appears to be the transit station I accidentally visited in Manhattan one time.
  • Ah Stiles–always the malcontent.
  • Peter!
  • Now Stiles is the crazy guy in the station that keeps trying to talk to people who are just waiting for their train.
  • Why is it that the guy in the flashback scenes in Eichen House doesn’t…err…look that much like Peter?
  • Eichen House to Train Station is kind of a lateral move for Peter.
  • I do love Ian Bohen, but this scene would be so awesome with Tyler Hoechlin.
  • What are these guys doing, carrying around $150 in cash?  On a good day, I have enough to pay for ramen.
  • If this dude knows so much about how to navigate train station limbo, why is he still here?
  • As they say in Japanese, “itai.”
  • Peter has spent his whole life vacillating between being helpful and being a total dick.
  • “Whose side are you on?”  Choose wisely, Scott.
  • We are going full throttle into Stydia country, folks.
  • I guess the alternative is that you just wait a bit and then everyone you know from Beacon Hills will wind up with you eventually.
  • I’m not totally sure I get what Peter was thinking during the lockdown flashbacks.  Was he thinking he was going to go back for Malia?  But how did he even know she was at Eichen House?
  • Being burnt to a crisp:  The Peter Hale Story.
  • So Malia remembers Peter, but not Stiles?
  • What, did they just leave Peter smoking out in the woods?
  • That’s amazing that the jeep turned over after all that time sitting there.
  • Like, that’s more than it usually did for Stiles.
  • Well like Peter said, it is kinda weird that the Ghost Riders just left a piece of equipment with which you could call your friends.

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.

Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode Ten: “Monstrous”

Spoiler thoughts:

  • I feel like these Buddhist werewolves have maybe sublimated not only their violent tendencies, but also their self-preservation tendencies.
  • Liam might be the smartest werewolf of all.
  • Oddly enough, a hospital might be one of the last places you’d find a cassette player, since no one wants to bring their nice players to get ripped off there.
  • So Kira flew back from wherever they took her Mom, and immediately went in the pouring rain to go check out Beacon Hill High’s sport’s stadium in case there were werewolves in peril?
  • Argent looks like he’s raiding the Land Pavilion at EPCOT.
  • So far, losing all his superpowers seems to be the best thing that ever happened to Derek.
  • This is why people should have private hospital rooms.
  • The Desert Wolf!  Thank God Peter wasn’t sharing all his thoughts about her.
  • Oh Lydia’s Mom is never gonna get to sell this house now.
  • Peter loses some of his intimidation prowess without his v-necks.
  • Sad that Sheriff Stalinski wasn’t stationed in some other American towns, where apparently anybody can shoot anyone without thinking twice about it.
  • This girl has the worst survival instincts of any werewolf ever.
  • Oh Peter.

Teen Wolf, Season Four, Episode Two: “117”

Thoughts:

  • You’d think after awhile, Beacon Hills would have learned not to hold its big championship games on the nights of the Full Moon.
  • I guess…Scott is more ok with his Dad now?
  • Nobody ever cleaned up the Hale House after all those years?
  • Haige is a bastard, and is an unnecessary contributor to poor Derek’s Life of Suckage.
  • I’m not so sure Sheriff Stilinski really wants full disclosure at this point.
  • OH HAI PETER.
  • Oh Stiles…
  • It’s kind of weird that they are so squidged out over the gas station guy’s mutilation, after all the horrible death they’ve seen previously.
  • Well that was almost some parental concern from Peter.
  • Are…are Scott and Malia trying to slap those Berzerkers in the chest to death?
  • Does anyone want to try to freaking help Derek?!
  • Woo! Hoechlin, baby! With innocent eyes!
