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, S6E2: “Superposition”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Lacrosse practice!  Because that always goes well.
  • Science lab!  We are going down the checklist of Things You Should Not Do In Beacon Hills High If You Want To Live.
  • Coach is the best.  I always love how he is oddly in charge of everything just because everyone likes watching him.
  • Corey doesn’t think it’s weird that all the lights suddenly went off as soon as Mason walked inside?
  • Ok, he said don’t move, Mason.
  • I feel like disappearing out of plain sight should draw a little more Ghost Rider attention than that.
  • The only Asian guy in Beacon Hills and Malia has totally traumatized him.
  • You would think Lydia’s Mom would be a little more sympathetic towards her powers since she went through the whole Eichen House nightmare already.
  • Liam, still not finding much of a supply of chill anywhere.
  • Writers not wasting any time twisting the knife of finality into us with the Lacrosse metaphor.
  • Stiles is being replaced by multiple Asian people?
  • Hey, Parrish!  With a shirt on!
  • New Physics professor hampering Scott’s memory!  I trust him.
  • Hard to argue against Corey’s general shiftiness.
  • Scott is a fast sleeper.
  • Oh man, I love interpolated early season footage shows.
  • They are really making a big effort to make Sprayberry look leading guy good this year.
  • This probably means he’s going to die.
  • They are totes feeding the Stydia folk now.
  • Sheriff’s…wife?
  • …What?!
  • Corey gets to hold hands with everyone.
  • Lydia’s mind has been messed with so many times, she probably should get an MRI.

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 19: “The Beast of Beacon Hills”

Screenshot (48)

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Poor Mason. It’s not enough to be the Beast, but he has to wake up in a sewage tunnel too.
  • I feel like we saw Mason outside Eichen House trying to shut off the power while the Beast was inside, tho.
  • Is there some reason Gerard never told anyone he knows how to totally paralyze the Dread Doctors anytime he wants?
  • Why did Corey think it was a good idea to take Mason away from Scott and Liam in the first place? He can’t have really thought they were going to kill him.
  • Electro guy is not buying the mask job.
  • DEUCALION.
Screenshot (51)
I trust him.
  • He’s so smart.
  • Hm. Not sure why it looks like Gideon Emery has a droopy eyelid this episode.
  • Electro guy is not an idiot.
  • I feel your pain Parrish. I just got new tires too. Then the whole car broke down and had to be traded in…Wait, what were we doing again?
  • “I have the word ‘Hell’ in my name!  Hell!”
  • Scott has a lot on his plate. Most of it sucks.
  • Stiles finally gets to be funny again for the first time in like two years.
  • Liam is the worst in forests.
  • Scott’s healing powers not only fix his wounds, but they do dry cleaning as well.
  • Oh, I kind of think it was your fault, Corey.
  • Worst spinal tap ever.
  • I’m not so sure these are very good doctors.
  • Theo’s team building skills are taking a pounding here.
  • Now you know Theo is evil, because Gideon Emery’s voice isn’t going to get on anyone’s nerves.
  • Oh God, Kira should not be this dumb.
  • Yeah that’s right Theo. Taste of a real Alpha.
  • If I was Electro guy, I’d have been inching towards the door from the time Deucalion stood up.
  • If I was Tracy, I’d be thinking “either he puts on the mask and gets what he wants and we go hunt the beast, or the mask kills him and I don’t have to worry about him coming for me next.”
  • This Nemeton brought to you by Toyota Corolla.
  • Yeah, this doesn’t seem like a bright alliance.
  • I think it’s pretty obvious that Tracy does not want the same thing.
  • I don’t even know why Scott needed those guys. They didn’t even know it was Mason in the first place.
  • Sad that Derek isn’t here. Don’t you think someone would have asked Braeden about him by now?
  • The story of this season, is Scott’s BFFs telling not to trust Theo, and Scott doing it anyway.
Screenshot (52)
Would you buy a used car from this man?
  • Ugh. Kira. How does she possibly think she’s going to drive off and accomplish whatever and get back before everything’s over?
  • What if they just cut the tubing and ran for it with the thing still in his neck?
  • Argent, do you honestly think Gerard is not majorly playing you?
  • The only good thing is that as soon as Deucalion sees Gerard, he may forget about Scott altogether.
  • Dread Doctors laying down the sick burn on Theo.
Screenshot (54)
Rude.
  • Maybe punching a steel mask isn’t the best strategy, Theo.
  • I like how Posey and Sprayberry must have had specific limits to how many times they put on the wolf makeup written into their contracts, because Theo is the only one doing any wolfing here.
  • Ok if you had done that like 15 minutes ago, Mason, you’d all be out of there by now.
  • Braeden is too smart for this town.
  • Mrs. McCall is going to wish Scott had gotten that scholarship when she gets the repair bills after this.
  • Uhm…any reason why Braeden didn’t just unload both barrels of her never-depleted shotgun into her at that point?
  • Ok, Scott and Liam have just spent about a day’s worth of shooting, sitting by this cabinet flinching a lot.
Beast can literally not believe the naked flaming guy jumping at him.
  • This dude died, then was brought back by unholy means, but at least it gave him a nice haircut.
  • How could this guy possibly know Gerard’s last name? Does he have Mason’s memories?

 

Teen Wolf, Season Five, Episode 18: “Maid of Gevaudan”

Screenshot (41)

Spoiler Thoughts:

    • I am the worst with history. I don’t even know which side I’m supposed to be rooting for, here.
    • I thought Deucalion was the Demon Wolf?
    • Apparently it’s story time with Gerard.
    • Alison!
    • There is another.” How very Star Wars-y of you, Argents.
    • Stiles is just not equipped for medic duty.
    • I would think that a) he would need more pain abstracted than that, and b) Hayden would have felt a little pain there herself.
    • I guess the Argent girls have always been good with a bow.
    • The Innkeeper is pretty chill over having FrenchAlison shoot a crossbow that close to his head.
    • Maybe she does this all the time, in which case I don’t know if I’d invite her back to the Inn.
    • This is a pretty liberated town, to happily accept that their best hunter is a girl.
    • Ooh, interesting–the olden days footage is letterboxed, while the present day story is full-screen.
    • Maybe firing random crossbows at something you don’t see isn’t the way to go, FrenchAlison.
    • This is why open carry isn’t a good idea.
    • Also, how is she firing one bolt after the other? Video games have shown us crossbows only give you one shot, and then they take forever to reload.
Screenshot (45)
“Hi, I’m here to talk to you about the Latter Day Saints.”
  • “That was no wolf!” The villagers have been putting up signs advertising a Beast for some time, FrenchAlison. I think they’d be able to recognize a wolf.
  • Like Braeden doesn’t have other stuff to do besides pull Beacon Hill’s fat out of the fire.
  • Girl doesn’t have the sense to run when a huge beast attacks in Beacon Hills, girl is going to wind up as kibble.
  • Maybe FrenchAlison should wonder why this dude has spent half his life trying to figure out defenses against a creature no one believed in until, like, a week ago.
  • Scott hates this library.
  • Do we know the girl with the hat? She looks familiar but I don’t remember her.
Screenshot (46)
Heeere’s Beast-y!
  • Well plus FrenchAlison can’t take out another hunting party, because who’s gonna sign up when 100% of her guys got et?
  • Maybe you shouldn’t be rinsing this guys blood right into the DRINKING WELL?!
  • So what was she doing with the drink? Trying to drug everyone in hopes of getting into the cellar? Or was it just werewolf poison?
  • What was this guy to FrenchAlison’s brother that he was willing to hide all those bodies for him? Because that’s kind of farther than I’d go for most people.
  • That’s how you become a Demon Wolf? You drink from a puddle?
  • Braeden, that was also a lot of shots from a weapon that I thought could have two shots. Evidently, video games are ripping me off.
  • Wow, until this minute, I didn’t realize Marcel and Henri were two different guys.
  • This is another example of a story where I feel like we are supposed to be surprised at the end over something that was laid out for us earlier.
Screenshot (47)
Itai.
  • Maybe they should go to the next town over, Sunnyvale, and pick up Buffy.
  • It better not be Mason, is all I’m saying.
  • DAMN IT.
  • Like Scott couldn’t track Mason and invisible guy by scent?
