Teen Wolf Recap

Teen Wolf Recap: Ghost Town

Scott & Co. were visited by three ghostly faces from the past on Tuesday’s Teen Wolf, some more welcome than others. (Actually, only one of them was even remotely welcome. The others? Total garbage people.)

Let’s begin with garbage ghost No. 1: Theo, whom the pack first encountered during a trip to Canaan. Malia hallucinated him — or did she? — along with the bloody corpses of her adoptive family members, both clear manifestations of her residual guilt. Then, because Theo’s favorite pastime is adding insult to injury, he shot her. (Side note: It’s hard to believe there was a time when anyone thought these two might end up together.)

Of course, Theo’s surprise appearance wasn’t the only thing that made the pack’s pilgrimage to Canaan a total nightmare. They also encountered a crazy old banshee named Lenore, who remains the town’s only living resident, as the dead son she’s been keeping in the basement (a gift from the Riders!) doesn’t exactly count. It seems that banshees are immune to the Riders’ powers of erasure, which is good news for Lydia — but, you know, not really great news for anyone else.

All that said, it seems like the show is gearing up to reveal that Claudia Stilinski is working with the Ghost Riders, or at least that she’s aware of the fact that she shouldn’t be among the living. Not only did she shut Sheriff Stilinski down when he asked how she miraculously overcame dementia, but she’s also desperate for a contractor to replace their wallpaper. And what, pray tell, is behind that wallpaper? Sadly, we’ll have to wait until next week to find out.

Elsewhere this week…

GUESS WHO’S BACK, BACK AGAIN | Theo re-emerged later in the episode via a hole in the earth caused by — wait for it — Kira’s sword, which her mother (hi!) decided to place in Liam’s care. It was all part of a plan he and Hayden were concocting with Mr. Douglas to try and capture a Ghost Rider, but once they realized that Theo isn’t quite as powerful as he once was, they tried to toss him back into the abyss. (Mr. Douglas seemed particularly eager to dispatch of Theo, as he’s the only one who knows about the whole “Nazi werewolf” thing.) Fortunately for Theo, his memory of Stiles was enough to keep him in the pack’s good graces… for now.

MEDICAL MIRACLE | Guys, we need to have a serious chat about what happened between Melissa and Argent this week — and I don’t just mean their obvious chemistry, which I’ve been yammering about pretty much all season long. No, I’m talking about how Scott’s mom is apparently an on-the-low Celtic herb master. Sure, Argent helped by listing most of the herbs Melissa would need in order to heal him, but let’s not overlook her tremendous contribution to this effort: “You weren’t trying to say my name. You were trying to say something in Celtic. [Checks phone.] Of course!” What?!

    Love Theo. Glad he’s back.

  2. tina says:

    The pacing of this episode was weird. Also strange, the instant trusting/let’s work together thing with evil hot teacher. The best part of the episode was Melissa and Argent! I love them and they have been a highlight of the season

  3. Nick says:

    Great episode but I am really missing Stiles and Peter!

  4. Manuel Green says:

    this is super..hope 2 see more of melissa+argent

  5. Paul says:

    Guys, how did Theo find out about the “shooting” thing? I mean, wasn’t Malia hallucinating in Caanan?

  6. Gerald says:

    I like Argent and Melissa together, but honestly I don’t remember what happened with them at the end of the last episode and their story seemed very removed from everything else. It felt more like filler stuff.
    The Ghost town stuff was weird also. Still not sure why Stiles sent them there or how he knew that particular town on the train schedule was relevant.
    Theo is always good to see. I wonder if he will point out that Stiles mom was long dead before the Ghost riders showed up.
    Look forward to next week.

      Oh and Melissa should have got Argent to Deeton. That is where I thought she was taking him.

    • Glorious star says:

      I believe stiles sent them to Canaan to warn them that if they don’t protect beacon hills, it’ll become a ghost town like Canaan where only Lydia would survive because she is a banshee like the woman at Canaan

    I thinks it’s Stiles’ room on the other side of the wallpaper…

  8. Taryorharty says:

    Cool

  9. Taryorharty says:

    Awesome

  10. Is it ending by Caleb- the dead son of Lenore saying that Malia and Scott can leave?

  11. Kolin Sanders says:

    What does Stiles father due at the end with the wallpaper? My recording ended early
