BWW Recap: TEEN WOLF Head Like a Hole
Looks like we'll be beginning and ending the first half of Season Four in Mexico. And from tonight's penultimate episode, things are not looking good for Scott and the gang. By the end of the episode, was it just me who had no idea what is going to happen in the finale next week? Man, I hope so because I have a LOT of questions. Let's dissect this, shall we?
Veterinarian/Badass Deaton is on a mission to discover what happened to Derek. Even if it means trapping serial killers, or getting lost in a hole in a man's head. No, that seriously happened. After falling into a tiny coma, Lydia is the only one that could bring him out of it, even though they don't show us how.
Liam is going through a sort of PTSD with nightmares about the Berzerkers. Mason and his sideburns are really concerned but Liam isn't sharing. He finds an unexpected mentor in his rival, Brett who is now super loyal to Scott after he saved him.
Peter runs into Chris in the sewers. (Chris...why are you in the sewers? Does anything good EVER happen in the sewers?) Peter impales him and leaves him to die until Deputy Parrish shows up and refuses to leave him. He inspires him to release adrenaline and help Parrish save his life. Peter then heads to the Lacrosse game because Lacross, as it turns out, is really the most important thing that happens in Beacon Hills. Peter sits next to his daughter and in true daddy dearest fashion, he asks her to kill Kate?
Scott tries desperately to give Kira a super romantic first date, which goes great at first until Kate and her Berzerker show up and decide to torture them. They are beaten mercilessly and they take Scott to Mexico where Kate makes him...a Berzerker?
Huh? Wait, so has she transformed all of the berzerkers? Are they all just victims? Anyone? Anyone?
Here's What I know:
The money problems all seemed to vanish didn't they? Derek doesn't seem to really care about the money, Sheriff Stiles got a 'credit' from the hospital. Funny how that happens to insignificant details.
Looks like we're headed back to Mexico for the finale. Nice bookends, MTV.
Fun Fact - The doctor at Eichen is Scott's father in real life.
Another fun fact - Did you know Lydia's mom and Peter Hale are married in real life?
I'm stalling because I don't know a whole lot.
Here's what I don't know:
Are Kate and Peter not working together anymore?
Is it me or do Kate and Malia looks suspiciously similar?
Who's Deaton's "love?"
Are we finally going to find out about the bone woman and the desert wolf?
PhoenixParrish becoming anyone else's favorite?
Has Scott really never seen Star Wars?
Lines I love:
- Coach - What could Scott and Kira be doing right now that's more important than playing the first game. Stiles - Oh, Coach...
- Mason - When did you get so good? Have you been practicing or did you just suddenly get superhuman reflexes? Liam - Um...practicing. Yeah, I've been practicing.
- Brett - Do you know how lucky you are? Scott's a true Alpha. That means he didn't get his powers because he was born with it, he didn't get it by stealing it or killing someone; he earned it. You're not strong because you can lift a lot of weight now, you're strong because you endured.
I feel like the season started with this huge, epic plot in Mexico. Then they came back to Beacon Hills, the assassins appeared, the dead pool happened, the Benefactor was revealed to be Lydia's Grandmother, I mean Meredith, I mean Peter. (Still not really clear on that.) Anyway, now that the Benefactor lore has been solved (?) we're going back to Mexico? It feels a little scattered to me unless somehow it's all going to be tied together. I will say that I'm starting to place my money on Deaton being the major death. Sure, it's mainly because the actor (Seth Gilliam) just scored a major role on THE WALKING DEAD, but after tonight's episode, it seems that he may just be the most vulnerable. (Sidebar - Does it feel like we will eventually see the entire cast of THE WIRE on TWD? No complaints here, I'm all for an Omar Little/Stringer Bell rematch in the zombie apocalypse.) But I digress, I am worried for Mason. I am hoping they will keep him around as his and Liam's friendship is a junior version of the bromance that is Scott and Stiles. And with the absence (yet again) of Scott's Dad, it'd be highly irregular for him to just show up and die. Unless he's in Mexico?
Anything is possible. So we shall learn it all next week for the mid-season finale on Monday, September 8 at 10/9 Central on MTV.
