“Not all monsters do monstrous things.” —Lydia Martin, banshee
Please excuse me while I make this brief public service announcement, including an immediate spoiler: MEREDITH. Meredith! WE TRUSTED YOU! Meredith? MEREDITH?! Meredith.
Ahem, back to your regularly scheduled plot twist.
Teen Wolf has been burning through villains like it has something to prove this season, but even without the assistance of a shiny new assassin this week, “Time of Death” sends a clear message about just how high the stakes are for these kids and their parents at the hands of The Benefactor. Each villain we’ve seen this season—the Mute, the Orphans, the Chemist, even Peter and Kate—are all just vehicles for the most imposing force against the pack: the constant threat of imminent death. Oh, well, and Lydia’s unseen grandmother.
Will the Hale vault ever cease to amaze? First, $117 million in bearer bonds, and now tea; this is either the vault of one super complex family, or one super old woman. But don’t let your guard down around old women, either… Alpha Satomi will put you on your ass in 10 seconds flat, and that’s a lot faster than any Hale I’ve seen.
“No one else dies… I’m going to save everyone on that list.” Let’s take things one step at a time, shall we, Scotty? There are, like, 1,000 things out there trying to kill you and your 40 closest supernatural friends.
Teen Wolf is proving to serve much more consistently as a show anchored in mystery than it sometimes did as a show anchored in mythology, although the mythological foundation past seasons left in their stead is still appreciated here: new strains of wolfsbane, the Sherriff’s ever-growing scowl as he lists each new supernatural creature he’s learned about this year, and enough knowledge of lycan lore to understand exactly what has been taken from Derek, a born-werewolf, but still have no idea what he’ll have to do to get his powers back from Kate.
Wolf Watch, Teen Wolf’s after show—featuring host Kate Argent Jill Wagner, and a few guest stars from preceding episodes, lured in by the promise of some sick DJ Cole Plante beats—isn’t necessarily a must watch. But tonight, feeling particularly overwhelmed by eerily silent scenes, killer bolo ties, and the still unexplained absence of Danny, I tuned in to try and find some answers.
Has there been anything more immediately gratifying on Teen Wolf in such a long time than feasting your eyes on that lacrosse field tonight? For at least a few scenes, everything seemed as it should be at Beacon Hills High School. The actors aren’t exactly passing for 16 or 17 anymore, especially in their Teen Wolf-sponsored-by-Nike dry fits, but the kids are getting to be kids again. You know, when they’re not fighting off wendigos who are fighting off a mouthless mutant man, who’s fighting for… well, that guy is definitely fighting on behalf of something.
After last week’s Mexican prologue, it’s good to see Scott and his ragtag team of teen wolves ‘n more getting back to basics—school, joking around, dealing with multiple killer enemies at once, fielding Banshee warning texts in history class, etc. But before Scott, Stiles, and Kira can be filled in on who’s turning who into a teen wolf today, they’ve got a classic Mr.
Hello and welcome to EW recaps of Teen Wolf! Because when the wolves are teens, the were-jaguars are formerly dead sociopathic aunts, and there’s hardly an unnaturally beautiful 17-year-old without a jewel tone set of eyes within a 20-mile radius, it seems only fair that we break down exactly who is turning into what from week to week.
