Teen Wolf Recap

Teen Wolf Recap: Bullet Proof

The hunted became the hunters on Sunday’s Teen Wolf as Scott’s pack decided to get proactive (bro-active?) about their latest supernatural dilemma.

The investigation into the murder of Beacon Hills’ other shirtless hellhound reunited Scott and Malia with Argent, who swore he hasn’t stamped a bullet since Allison died. So then who gave Ms. Monroe the one that killed poor, shirtless Halwyn? Our answer came in the episode’s final moment when that old bastard Gerard emerged from the shadows to congratulate BHHS’ new guidance counselor on her “raw talent” for hunting werewolves.

Of course, Grandpappy Argent didn’t simply show up to pat his apparently protégé on the back; he also saved her from the clutches of Brett “Eight-Pack” Talbot, whom she’d been tracking throughout the episode before trapping him with a literal ball of wolf’s bane.

As if often the case with Brett, it was his cockiness that ultimately sealed his fate. Liam had brought him in to whip some of the lax team’s lesser players into shape, but Brett’s innate desire to show off his wolf-like strength on the field caught the attention of Ms. Monroe — as well as Mason, who would have gladly traded places with Corey at the bottom of that pile-on.

(Side note, because I don’t know where else to put this: Now that we know Scott and Malia are getting together in the final 10, I find myself keeping a closer eye on their interactions. And although it might not have been the most romantic topic, things definitely got flirty during the pair’s chat about being hunted throughout their lives — even by their parents, in some cases. “Scalia” is happening, folks. Get ready for it.)

Elsewhere this week…

BACK TO THE BASEMENT | After deducing that the card-reading sound Lydia heard in her premonition came from the depths of Eichen House, Parrish reluctantly returned to the gang’s old stomping grounds — only to remember exactly why they vowed never to go back. It turns out the “doctors” killed every supernatural in the closed unit out of fear, and if Lydia had arrived seconds after she did, Parrish would have joined them all in… I don’t know, wherever the supernatural characters on this show go after they die. The CW?

WHAT IS ‘IT’? | Much of this season’s mythology remains a big fat question mark, but Sunday’s episode took us a few steps closer to figuring out what the hell is going on. For starters, we learned about more about Halwyn, who had been living in a “state of hibernation” in the basement of Eichen House — which he apparently built — since 1912, as a precautionary measure “in case it got out.” We still have no idea what “it” is, though Mason’s description (“a supernatural that’s so powerful that the only safe place to put it is in the Wild Hunt”) is a good start.

LONE WOLF | The opening of this week’s episode added Theo back into the mix, and although I’ll deny ever typing this, I actually found myself feeling bad for him. Like, the dude wasn’t hurting anyone — for the first time in literally forever — and just wanted to catch a few z’s in the back of his truck. But thanks to the Beacon Hills Police Department, a gross (imaginary?) spider, and a few trigger-happy hunters, Theo’s beauty rest was not to be. When executive producer Jeff Davis told us that Cody Christian’s character was being introduced “in a big way” this week, he wasn’t kidding.

    That beginning tho…

  2. DeAnna says:

    So wtf is theo dead along with hawlyn wtf what about theos redemption that was nothing.

    • Hipper says:

      No redemption would’ve got his character redeemed in a lot of viewer’s eyes. His physical attractiveness on the hand, yes.

      • Paula says:

        I really wanted Theo dead and not to return to the show, and somehow (I can’t believe I’m writing this), I felt bad for him in this episode, too.

  3. Hipper says:

    This episode should’ve been the season opener instead of whatever that was that aired last week. Offing Theo? Pretty ballsy and brilliant intro the the rise of hunters arc.

  4. mrbill125 says:

    I’m confused, wasn’t Eichen house a WW2 detention camp?

  5. Trevor says:

    So does Brett and Theo die in this episode? I missed it unfortunately :’(

  6. gershou says:

    This story becomes more and more confused. Time to give up this nonsense.

  7. JUstine says:

    I was on the edge of my seat the whole episode through, since there is a lot of spiders this whole episode i think “it” as they call it has to do with feeding on peoples fear by invecting them with spiders which causes them to act on that fear, I don’t know if I am right but with all the spiders in this episode it makes one think.

  8. Donna says:

    So is Theo dead? I couldn’t keep up with last nights episode.

  9. Poppy says:

    The scenes with JR Bourne were good the rest was pretty meh. Suffers from a lack of Derek and Stiles. Too much Liam and co.

  10. Jason says:

    I think Liam, Cory, and Mason will find the car the counselor has outside and have a instinct that something is happening in a bad way and rescue Brett from his fate before Jarod kills him

  11. Dominique says:

    okay but is theo really dead? we saw those hunters fire their guns but we didn’t actually *see* him die… so i’m choosing to believe that, for the time being, he’s still alive.
    i was on the edge of my seat the entire episode. between this and GOT, i was a mess by the time i went to bed. so many characters to fear for. theo, brett, parrish… i wouldn’t have been surprised if they’d killed them all this episode.

  12. Linda says:

    I fully expected Teen Wolf to be fluffy entertainment. Instead, Jeff Davis is making a statement. What’s the Ultimate Big Bad? Some unknown thing which makes us afraid of everyone that’s different from us. That thing which turns us against one another. There was even a hat-tip to the rise of fascism in Italy. It’s subtle – and it’s brilliant.

  13. Maryellen says:

    I think it may be a Jinn. They are very powerful mythical creature that feeds on fear. Or if you go with the spider theme its an Arachnes, They are extremely powerful beings that were created by God. … strong webs, just like real spiders can do, so they can use to trap ….. Telekinesis ☆ Fear Inducement,
    Or it could possibly be, Mythic humanoids are mythological creatures that are part human or resemble … These humanoids are likely to instill fear and revulsion. ..
