'Teen Wolf' Mid-Season Finale Recap: The Final Battle Brings Death and New Romances
This week on the mid-season finale ofTeen Wolf, everything comes to a head as Scott finally fulfills his destiny and becomes a true alpha.
The literary reference made most often throughout this hour is to Joesph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, but for my money the artistic work with the most influence on this half season was The Matrix. Just look at the white room Allison, Stiles and Scott wake up in. Or all the talk about Scott unlocking his full Neo-esque potential. Or all the slow-mo. My god, this season had a lot of slow-mo. They were bullet-timing like it was 1999.
Teen Wolf, MTV’s surprise supernatural hit, is winding down for a mid-season hiatus. A lot has happened during the first part of season three, none of it very good news for the residents of Beacon Hills….
This is just a public service announcement to get Derek a vacation. The poor guy needs a break. Maybe somewhere tropical? Basically anywhere he won’t be stabbed repeatedly would be good.
'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Final Battle Begins
This week on Teen Wolf, the stakes are raised impossibly high in a quest to save the parents. Scott, Stiles and Allison take a trip to the luxurious ice bath of death spa in order to take their parents’ place as sacrifices.
'Teen Wolf' Recap: Parent Trap
This week on Teen Wolf, a huge storm is a great excuse for another bottle episode, this time set in the hospital. Beacon Hills Hospital, where everyone in town ends up eventually after being mauled by mysterious creatures or lagoon monsters, becomes the staging ground for several huge fights and more big revelations.
First, there is Jennifer Blake, mild-mannered English teacher turned homicidal Freddy Krueger. Jenny from the Nemeton has a tragic backstory with Kali and some self-esteem issues about her horror movie monster face. “Derek, are you breaking up with me because I killed a bunch of people or because I look like The Gentlemen from Buffy?”
'Teen Wolf' Interview: Dylan O'Brien andTyler Hoechlin Talk Stiles' Virginity and Derek's Apartment
At San Diego Comic Con, I sat directly next to Tyler Hoechlin, which is like looking directly at the sun. Let’s just say he’s semi- good looking. Also charming! This is the full interview with Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin, where I’m the one asshole willing to ask the hard-hitting questions like “when will Derek ever get furniture?”
'Teen Wolf' Recap: Dramatic Check Outs At Motel California
This week on Teen Wolf, the gang visits a creepy motel with more disturbing happenings than theBates Motel and the Overlook Hotel combined. (Hereeee’s suicide!) As the teen wolves start to lose it, Lydia’s gift for giving great freaked out face helps unravel the whole story and ultimately save the day.
'Teen Wolf' Recap: Is Derek Dead?
This week on Teen Wolf, an endless bus ride becomes an excuse for a labyrinthine flashback-centric narrative. There’s a flashback-within-a-flashback, within a flashforward, within the snow globe of an autistic child. This episode makes the narrative structure of Inception look linear.
The structure of the episode leads to a strange whiplash effect within the first five to ten minutes of the episode, during which time I became sure I had missed an episode somewhere in between. But that’s impossible! I literally recap this show, how could I forget Scott being mauled and…wait did they just say Derek is dead?!
This week on Teen Wolf, Isaac gets a little payback, Stiles plays detective and Derek has an all-around terrible day….
'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Virgin Homicides
This week on Teen Wolf, the hunt is on for Boyd and Cora before they kill all the children, English teachers and lesbian couples in Beacon Hills.
I guess the obvious solution is orgy, right? I mean, there is a lot of shirtlessness in Beacon Hills. It had to be leading somewhere.
'Teen Wolf' Recap: A Bank Heist Gone Wrong
This week on Teen Wolf, the werewolf gang (plus Stiles) form an impromptuOcean’s 11-type gang in order to mount a rescue attempt to save Erica and Boyd. In typical bank heist fashion, it does not go according to plan. Derek might be charismatic, but he’s no George Clooney.
