Teen Wolf S04E03: "Muted"

If you are anything like me you've destroyed your brain with too much gas station candy and can't remember anything anymore. I legit can't remember anything that happened longer than 10 minutes ago, which is why I get tons of stuff wrong in these reviews, which are basically the only literate thing I do all week. This is why we are a good team; you remind me when I miss something and I remind you that I have mental probs. Mythology-dense shows like Teen Wolf just get denser and denser as they go along and it can be hard to remember half the stuff that happens. Which I think is fine, that is normal, we have a lot of information to process all day every day. But it's a bummer when misremembering something causes you to like it less. Like, I keep getting into arguments with people who are claiming that True Blood went off the rails recently. Uh, do you even remember the first season? Or more pertinent to this review, that the previous two episodes of Teen Wolf somehow weren't in keeping with what had come before? I'm just saying, don't misremember the format of every season! The main plot doesn't usually kick in until a third of the way through, and that's how it's always been. Even Season 1 devoted its first third to the question of whether Derek was the Alpha or not. Season 3A had something to do with ritual sacrifices. Sorry to sound defensive, but here we are, I'm defending my favorite show. Not that it needs defending: "Muted" was one of the best episodes of Teen Wolf maybe ever. So yeah, Teen Wolf can speak for its-f*ckin-self pardon my French cussin'!

So again, we know that Teen Wolf likes to devote extra time at the start of the season to world-building and character introductions. Haunted motels and coyote girls may not have tons to do with their seasons' respective climaxes, but they DO have a lot to do with getting into our characters' heads and setting things up for future seasons. (At this point maybe only a deeply disturbed person would regret those Malia introductory episodes at the beginning of Season 3B.) That's why I wasn't super impressed with complaints that a Mexico-set episode or an episode about baby Derek were Teen Wolf being somehow off its game. Um, you've seen four (basically) seasons of this thing by now. This is how it works! 

However, I definitely understand those complaints a bit more now if only because of how fun and wonderful "Muted" was. Like, I know intellectually that we NEED world-building episodes for a back-to-basics episode like this one to feel so special. But "Muted" nailed all the best Teen Wolf tropes in an almost next-level way. That cold open! The new monster(s)! Lacrosse! The bite! "Muted" was a real holy sh*t of an episode. And yeah, it REALLY does feel like the season has finally started. I think we can all agree on that.

Let's talk about it!

So, one of the things I'd been missing that Teen Wolf had made less and less frequent over the past few seasons were the truly terrifying, near-standalone cold opens. When it wants to be, Teen Wolf is one of the scariest damn shows on television. It's very clear the writers know their horror and the directors really tend to shine during these scenes. This cold open was probably the best one in the history of Teen Wolf, and I'm not going to lie, it was shockingly disturbing. Like, I maybe can't even believe MTV aired it? On the other hand: AMAZING. An alone-in-the-house suburban boogeyman horror scene reminiscent of HalloweenThe StrangersHigh TensionHouse of the DevilMartyrs AND Saw (except 1 million times better than Saw) and centered around a shirtless hunk? Sign me up. If this opening teaser were a feature-length horror movie it would be an instant classic, no joke. I would own it on Blu-Ray. I would watch it more than once a year. I would probably obsess over it and constantly name check it in photo recaps of teen supernatural soaps. So good.

Anyway, here's what happened: a teen hunk went looking for his cat outside but then came inside and turned out the lights and doffed his top and went to bed. That's when he noticed bloody paw prints on the rug, which in my opinion is not a good sign.

AAAAAAAH! A bloody... nevermind. But that's when things got horrifying. On the other side of his bedroom door there were suddenly the sounds of an older married couple getting axe-slaughtered!

Like, jeez, Teen Wolf. That is DARK.

And then the kid finally went to go see what was happening and found a hulking behemoth with a bloody axe standing in the hallway! And oh yeah, the boogeyman "spoke" using a touchpad and a robot voice:

In this case he urged the teen to break a shard of mirror and fight him.

But like a clever minx he merely shattered the window and split. Fair enough! But then the killer stepped into the moonlight:

OMG. Holy moly. Where is your mouth, guy?? Teen Wolf is the best show on television. Amazing. 

So then after the opening credits thankfully brought us back into a slightly less terrifying plane of existence, the Hales were negotiating something with Braeden. Specifically how much money they'd have to pay her to capture Kate Argent.

ALL OF IT, basically. She wanted all of their money. Which would be tough since Peter Hale had gotten all of his bear bones stolen. (Or bearer bonds, doesn't matter.) Anyway, Derek immediately agreed because he wanted Kate captured so bad, but Peter Hale got mad at him.

(Thanks to people who reminded me that yellow eyes means a werewolf hasn't murdered anybody.) So I guess Derek had had his murder stolen from him and he wanted it back? But why was he mad about not being a murderer anymore? Because blue eyes look cooler? That seems kinda racist, Derek. I guess we'll find out later after— Whoops, nevermind, can't talk now:

TWO NEW HUNKS! Meet Garrett and Liam, tiny hunk lacrossies (is lacrossie a word?) and obvious threats to Scott and Stiles' status on the team, especially Liam who is a freshman but seems like a prodigy or something.

In fact, Liam was so good at lacrosse that the boys immediately assumed he was a paranormal monster of some kind. So next thing we knew Stiles and Scott were grilling him in the locker room about it.

So, I don't know if this is a subject that will bum everybody out or not, but Teen Wolf is a show that will probably be on for a long time and cast members will continue to cycle in and out. It's sort of like how Captain America 2 [SPOILER] introduced a character who miiiight very well become Captain America should Chris Evans retire from the franchise. So it makes sense that while Dylan O'Brien and the gang are on the cusp of stardom that Teen Wolf needs an infusion of cute sympathetic boys, you know? (What happens to Liam later on in this episode kinda plays into my theory a lot also.) This character turnstile is already spinnin' with Malia and Kira replacing Allison as female leads. I don't know, maybe I shouldn't have said anything. I guess what I mean is these new guys are characters we should probably get used to if we plan to stick with this show for a while. Teen Wolf may just become the DeGrassi of supernatural horror soaps and that is a reality we should start accepting now. But these two also seem so tiny right now, which is rude for me to point out, but aren't they SO tiny??

Meanwhile at the hospital:

Hey look at the new doctor! He was an ancient hunter on The Vampire Diaries. Man, I will never get tired of the cast crossovers between all my favorite shows. Also HEY MRS. MCCALL! Missed u.

So after that bloody hunk showed up a the hospital Sheriff Stilinski discovered that his whole family had been murdered with an axe and he and Mrs. McCall had to decide whether to even inform their kids or not. What a weird moment! Like, theoretically their kids have super powers or whatever, and are probably better and investigating this stuff, but on the other hand, can you imagine being a sheriff and having to ask your teen son for help to do your job? But the biggest question at this point was why any of these people still live in Beacon Hills. So then I laughed when it appeared that Kira's family had already come to the correct conclusion about that:

Aw, they were selling their house and moving back to Manhattan! Kira was not happy, mostly because she hadn't yet sat 'n spun on Scott's werewolf D.

Also HEY KIRA'S MOM. Man, I love the parents on this show. I still wish we could get more appearances by the ghost of Mrs. Argent or maybe it could be a Lady Stoneheart situation, but who knows, maybe later. Nobody stays dead forever.

Meanwhile this episode confirmed that the lead characters are juniors in high school, which was weird considering they seemed to be taking algebra? As juniors? I mean obviously Malia is uneducated and Scott probably won't be acing SAT tests in general, but why was Lydia taking basic algebra? But I did love this chalkboard exchange with Malia:

Aw, poor Malia. She hates math. Meanwhile this cracked me up:

Stiles got a text alert about the murders! It reminded me of the time I was in a waiting room and everybody's iPhone got an Amber Alert (which is a California thing indicating that a child was stolen by gypsies or something) and it was honestly really terrifying to hear twelve phones go off simultaneously. It was like the beginning of a horror film where technology goes haywire and then the machines rise up to turn us all into batteries. So yeah, this was just a cool text message to get in the middle of class.

But the heroes being the heroes they were, Stiles immediately reasoned that they should skip out of school and go sort that murder sh*t right out.

Haha I liked that Scott seemed VERY disinterested in jumping into the season mythology just yet. It's like he KNEW it was only the third episode. Stiles on the other hand was appalled. I guess ever since his brain unbroke and he became literate again he's been rarin' to get back in the saddle. Classic Stiles.

There was also a cute moment here where Scott kissed Kira goodbye on the mouth too chastely and they both freaked out. That is a teen plotline I've never seen addressed before, so again, I like when Teen Wolf remembers it's about teens.

Meanwhile I have never related to a character as much as I related to The Mute:

The scene where he stayed up all night staring at his computer screen was VERY RELATABLE BASICALLY. And I'm not going to lie, I was slightly jealous of how he eats:

I mean, gosh, I'm just thinking of all the time this would save me and I'm suddenly craving a hole in the neck. Anyway, The Mute is obviously a horrifying monster with a blood-caked axe, but I feel like in certain ways he really "gets" me. Like, look at what he was typing:

That's exactly how these recaps start looking to me when 6am rolls around. 

Meanwhile the Coach announced in the locker room that the entire lacrosse team was experiencing a rebuilding season because half of its hunks went away. Like specifically Jackson and Isaac. But he didn't say anything about Danny, who I guess is not only gone but also forgotten? If he's gone forever this doesn't surprise me, since the revelation he was hip to the monsters all along felt like an unofficial parting line, but who knows if he is off the show or not. Only the lawyers and agents know for sure.

So even though Stiles has spent the better part of a semester running toward and away from dangerous monsters, he was surprisingly wheezy at lacrosse practice!

It was cute that Kira and Malia went to go watch practice like a couple of devoted girlfriends, but I REALLY liked their weird friendship, which mostly consists of Kira being awkward and Malia telling her off.

Malia was amazing in this episode, as always, no duh.

Meanwhile tiny hunk Liam was invited into a three-way with Scott and Stiles and he scored a ton!

I loved when Malia demanded that they all go again and Stiles got embarrassed:

Also I am not going to lie, I laughed out loud when the Coach immediately accepted her $10 offer to let them go again. He needs that money for the vending machines they keep in the lobby of his adult daycare.

So, anyway, this time Scott turned on his werewolf powers and broke Liam's effing LEG!

Poor Liam. See, this was a good introduction to the character because I was already feeling bad for the fella. Luckily there was no bad blood between any of them and Scott and Stiles immediately walked Liam off the field to go to the hospital. Meanwhile Kira caught a stray lacrosse ball with her stick thingy!

And then she threw it back at Coach and he fell down. Man, if this show is implying that Kira might join the lacrosse team I would LOVE that. That would be really awesome, I am in favor, case closed.

Meanwhile, could THIS be a blossoming romance?

Yeah, sorry, I'm definitely feeling it. I like Braeden a lot and it seems like she and Derek were flirting a bunch. Plus she has him all figured out (and not even Derek has Derek figured out.) So I approve of this muy mucho.

Meanwhile Scott and Kira continued to be awkward around each other. Like, he made her wait for him after practice and then he barely had time to say hi?

But then the music got loud and he ran back out and they mouth attacked each other! Whew! It finally happened. Friendzoning is over! Good job, guys.

Later Kira went home and destroyed the 'for sale' sign on her house, so it seems like she's probably going to stay a while now:

Meanwhile dreamy Deputy Parrish went to go investigate the house where everyone was murdered and guess who he found lurking around already!

Um, again, is there something romantic going on here? He is technically a grownup and an officer of the law and Lydia is underage, so that would obviously be strange and illegal, but on the other hand these are a couple of dreamboats and they seem to have good rapport. Who knows! The only thing we know right now is that if there is a wood panel with screaming faces on it, then it is probably the doorway to a secret passageway that leads to an enormous walk-in freezer full of hanging meats:

And despite Deputy Parrish weirdly assuming the hanging objects were DEER, they were actually just a ton of dead people.

This poor extra. I hope she at least puts this scene on her reel. But also WHAT ON EARTH? That family had some 'splaining to do. Just kidding, they were axe-murdered.

So then the Malia-Stiles romance proceeded accordingly with a sexy study session!

They had a really cute moment when Stiles saw that Malia had color-coded her highlighters in the same way he'd once color-coded his crazyperson yarn web. Like, come on, the look on his face when he realized the coincidence was as charming as possible. 

Then he discovered that the "notes" Lydia had lent to Malia were probably not very helpful.

Lydia, girl, what is UP with your brain? No wonder Malia was failing algebra.

So then Liam was chilling at the hospital and guess who his step-dad is? 

The doctor dude! Personally I love that Liam arrived complete with a dynamic parent who works in a position of power within the community. Now we KNOW Liam's an important new addition to the cast. You're not anybody in this town unless you have cool parent working in the public sector, you know? (Is Lydia's mom still substitute teaching?)

So yeah, after all those bodies were discovered in the crime scene house, it was clear the surviving family member hunk dude was probably not what he seemed. And Mrs. McCall had to find that out the hard way:

(I will never get tired of this joke sorry.) Look at that guy! Just eating a cop like it was NBD. That I didn't have a problem with, but it struck me as unnecessary for him to then also attack Scott's mom!

Luckily Scott was there to save her.

After a brief hallway tussle, the guy—a self-admitted wendigo!—grabbed Liam in the hallway and dragged him up to the roof where he threatened to eat him! 

I mean, Liam IS fun-sized but that didn't mean Scott was happy about this possibility.

But the next thing we knew Liam was hanging off the ledge by his fingertips and Scott was trying to save him but the wendigo was grabbing onto Scott and acting a fool.

So Scott did the only thing he could think of to save Liam, and it was a very weird decision!

HAHAH oh man. Of course. Good thinking. Meanwhile the wendigo was mysteriously struck down behind him!

It was The Mute, come to finish his handiwork! Scott probably had mixed emotions about seeing a mouthless demon straight-up murdering someone with an axe right in front of him. But on the other hand, The Mute DID kill an enemy and didn't seem to pose a threat to Scott himself at that point in time. So no harm, no foul. Meanwhile, there was plenty of harm and foul going on with Liam's new werewolf bite!

Wuh-oh. Scott may have officially turned his first werewolf! (Let's be real, Liam's definitely going to survive that bite and will probably not become a banshee or a lizard in my opinion.) That's obviously a big moral grey zone for Scott, even though he seemed ready and willing to turn Stiles into a werewolf last season. But still, he's definitely going to be in trouble with the Mexican Fratellis, seeing as Mexican Mama Fratelli specifically warned Scott not to bite innocent people. But hey, now there is a backup Teen Wolf in case Scott decides to move to Paris or London or get shot with an arrow in the chest, you know? Hakuna matata. 

"Muted" was pretty much fantastic. I mean, I don't know if this is too early to say, but is there a Royal Rumble of monsters going on in this town? Will there be even more monsters? I'm VERY into this idea. Very. Into it.

Okay bye.

Wow ok, so much to say about this episode. I agree this is definitely back to classic Teen Wolf and I loved it, cheers for lacrosse. I do want Danny back though, like what the hell, is he off on a quick romantic getaway with Ethan? I know they broke up but maybe they changed their minds and decided to run away together, maybe he is visiting Jackson in London?
Whatever, I do like Liam, as long as he gets on board with being part of the team and isn't a passive aggressive frenemy, right now he reminds me a lot of Jackson. I do love his step dad, as long as he isn't a hunter again like in TVD.
Love that Stiles is a 100% back to his hilarious self, with the texting comment, his defense of Scott, I love that he is still very much Scott's Yoda and just great all around.
Malia was hilarious as usual, her reaction to math is basically my reaction to math and I thought it was great. The whole colour coding thing was also really cute. I was starting to worry they would just have a physical relationship and I was starting to get a little worried and than 5 seconds later that happened.
I'm so grateful that Scott and Kira worked that drama out, that quick kiss was funny, I loved Scott's face when he realized what he had done.
Peter is great. I'm sad that he gets so little screen time, but every second of it is hilarious. I love how much he doesn't want to get a job.
As for Braedon and Derek, I am in no way interested in that. Parrish and Lydia on the other hand seem awesome. From my understanding he is probably like 26? Cause he said he did 2 tours in Iraq or something and I think those are 4 years each right? So if he joined and went right at 18 that should work. Either way I love him he is obviously a supernatural, but I love the way he interacts with everyone else, he is so chill.
I do really hope this hospital doesn't have cameras.
I REALLY want Chris back. Just... PLEASE.
Finally, I think the whole Fratelli family coming after Scott if he turns someone is like Twilight werewolves threatening the Cullen's if they bit any humans. It just seems ridiculous because in theory it was necessary. I say lets just not tell them.
Overall loved this episode.

Am I the only one who thinks it's quite obvious that Scott bit him because he thought he was gonna fall, and turning him into a werewolf would save him, as he would heal from the fall?

Both Liam's hands fell of so Scott bit him to keep him from falling. It was the only way to save his life. Good episode. Wish the wendigo didnt die, seemed chill besides for the whole eating people thing...

So I rewatched the episode, and it seems people were right about Scott's motives for biting Liam - Liam was just about to lose his grip, Scott had no hands free, so he tried to hold on to him with his teeth.

Stiles is gonna be a bit pissed though, I imagine. Liam was already too good on the field, and now he's gonna be a werewolf. Maybe he'll hold back so that his alpha can be captain?

they weren't doing algebra, they were doing calculus. The u and du stuff is for differentiation and integrals and stuff...so I'm not surprised Malia didn't get it, as she never even learned algebra or precalc or anything.

Which begs the question of WTF she was doing in that class to begin with. It's as though that high school has never heard of prerequisites. "Oh, you want to take calculus? Well, the state usually requires you to first take algebra, geometry, and trigonometry first, but you know what? Sure. Let's get you registered. It can only end well."

I guess I'm the odd one out in that I didn't like this episode as much as I expected.

I did like the beginning, and it brought to mind an old adage that just because someone has become a victim doesn't necessarily mean they're innocent; just look at what happened to Kate. But I really liked the concept of the wendigo family. And it makes me wonder if the mute is really a bad guy or not.

I like both Kira and Malia we'll enough, but I would like the show to explain more about Lydia's abilities too. That was supposed to be one of the main plot points of this season, but it just seems to keep going by the wayside of teen romance.

I understood why Scott bit Liam, especially since he had no way of knowing that Mute would show up and kill Sean. But I'm really getting tired if JD being so inconsistent on Scott's strength and capabilities. He played lacrosse better in S2! And he definitely fought better against stronger adversaries (the kanima and Ennis) in S2 & S3. JD just needs to figure out how strong he wants Scott to be and stick with it!

Glad to see Regular Derek back for good after that Child Derek scare. Did he lose some chest along with the blue eyes though. Rude of me to point out I kno but I liked him large. [sadface]

Also, this image begs to be photoshopped... Mmm

I don't think it's a good idea for Kira to play lacrosse, although that does seem to be what's going to happen. I think that will be way too much of a distraction for Scott. Also, the writers often get too cheesy with Kira's character when they're trying to make her seem like a bad ass. I'm worried this will make me dislike her if they have her doing a bunch of corny stunts.

Parrish is fine, indeed but NO! He is way too old for Lydia. She needs someone her own age lol Actually, I think Lydia probably needs to be single for awhile.

I don't know who I was happier to see: Coach or Mama McCall... I love those two.

I have to add that I did like the conversation between Malia and Kira as they watched the guys practice. It's nice to see them act like regular teens.

My favorite moment of the episode was Stiles' reaction to Scott NOT wanting to investigate the deaths. I loved that entire scene. (I love just about any scene with both Scott and Stiles in it. Those two are so great together).

I think it'd be great if Kira joins the lacrosse team, I'm tired of exclusive male/female teams (in real life and on shows). If you're building up a team, you have to pick the best players for it, no matter if they're boys or girls.

And I like Parrish (although on 3B he was kind of more blond, right? Did they dye his hair or something?). When we met him I thought he was a supernatural criature (that line he said about "being attracted to Beacon Hills", just like Deaton said BH attracted supernatural criatures), but now I'm not so sure. Maybe he's or maybe he isn't and BH attracted also humans with special connections to the supernatural or abilities to detect it/deal with it. Regarding him and Lydia, I don't think they'd be a mistake: he's an adult and Lydia's underage, so what? He doesn't seem so old anyway (maybe it's because of this upcoming couple that he has been keeping on stating that he looks younger, to make us easier to approve their possible romance). And the most important thing: in spite of Lydia being still underage, she has proven to be way too mature for her age, therefore I wouldn't find creepy or anything if they both get romantically involved eventually.

Ugh, so I hope this post doesn't double post, but apparently my last one disappeared. I had commented on the whole Parrish/Lydia trend. Everyone was talking about the issue of age difference between them. In the episode Letharia Vulpina from 3b, Parrish tells Jared he is 24 years old when he is opening the fake bomb. I have known people to come together and marry with a larger age difference than than 7 years. Although it is more so an issue when anyone is under age but now when everyone is older. Not saying I do or do not ship...Parydia/Larish? Just that age shouldn't be a major issue, especially in cinema. It is just that I have come to really like Lydia as a character, she has grown a lot and become quite a hero herself. She deserves a 'good' guy finally. And Parrish if not someone else, fits the bill for that.

He is 24 ok I thought he might be 26. Either way isn't the consenting age in the US 16? So is it still illegal? Regardless I love him and I am on board with this ship.

Does anyone remember that if the werewolf eyes are yellow it means that they are betas? I think Derek is confused because now he is Scott's beta (remember in Hale's vault, he couldn't help but join Scott when he called his pack?), not because Paige is still alive or anything...

Any time Scott is in danger Derek goes to save him. Remember in season 2 when Allison's mom tried to murder Scott? When Scott howled for help Derek went to save him.

I thought that yellow just meant they were a regular werewolf and blue was because you killed an innocent. Which is why Peter's, Malia's, Ethan's and Aiden's eyes were blue. I don't know if yellow signified anything else...

While the Derek/Braeden relationship is definitely the one I'm most anticipating, Alyssa Clark said in an interview (on AfterBuzz TV) that Lydia is 17, and her birthday is coming up.

So wait is Lydia a year older? Cause if you are in grade 11 usually you are 16 turning 17 and than in grade 12 you're 17 turning 18. If Lydia is already 17 I don't think her birthday will be till next season. Though I think her last birthday was that worm moon episode where she brought Peter back wasn't that in like November? I thought we were later into the school year like post Christmas. When is the last time we had summer? I suck at keeping track of time.

I hadn't until last night. I didn't notice a shirtless Parrish. I was distracted by my new theory that Peter and Kate may have killed the Hale family together and they are playing an epic long con on everyone. But I was trying to work out all the variables, I don't think they could have planned a lot of the stuff that happened in between, but Peter and Kate are both evil so who knows.

Haha, oh Price. :) First season, you were impressed that Lydia was such a stud. . . at the quadratic equation, which is simple algebra. Now they're doing calculus. Easy calculus, but still calculus. But hey, I'm good at math, and you're good at knowing just where to freeze the screen for a fantastic butt/back shot of a Windago. We all have our talents. . .

They're doing calculus, not algebra! They're doing simple derivatives, so it's probably a precalculus class, which is normal for a junior to take. What doesn't make sense, though, is how the whole gang is in the class. I would think if Lydia is a "genius," she'd be in upper level classes-- but that's just my input!

I also would've thought she'd be taking AP classes too. But Malia really should be taking basic math classes, not precalculus.

I'm very happy that we're getting to see Scott take more of an active role once again. This is the first episode in many seasons where it's felt like Scott is actively DRIVING the plot instead of things just happening TO him. I just wish they had made his choice to bite Liam less ambiguous. Putting him in that do-or-die situation makes it unclear as to whether Scott bit him solely on instinct, or whether he mentally weighed other options first.

As for Jeff gradually phasing out the old cast to replace with a newer generation: yes, it's quite possible. I wouldn't put it past Jeff, since he's said he doesn't ever want to write Teen Wolf in a college scenario. I doubt Dylan will stick around much longer, though Tyler Posey might. But it would be sad to see Scott go the way of Derek Hale and gradually be relegated into obscurity by the plot.

"So Scott did the only thing he could think of to save Liam, and it was a very weird decision!" I don't see how that decision was weird, choice 1 Let Liam fall to his death, choice 2 Don't let Liam fall to his death. Seems like an easy choice to me! I get that everybody wants Scott to be stronger than he is, but Scott has never been physically strong. He became an Alpha on the strength of his moral character, not the strength of his body.

Also just because you're an alpha doesn't mean a beta can't kick your ass, it has been established that alpha, beta, omega, are interchangeable, they shift like any real wolf pack. The fact that Yukuza beta was stronger than an alpha isn't really an issue, because he was an enforcer in the pack. Like real wolf packs there are beta enforcers that ensure the alpha's rules are enforced. To me that is what that big guy was.

I'm happy that Scott did bite Liam, but I could see how he might have been able to maybe toss him over the ledge, like he can punch through cement now right (like Derek could when he was an alpha), they are supposed to be strong. I think he could have tossed Liam, you she him toss people all the time. Hell back when he was a beta and got in a fight with Jackson he tossed him around pretty easy. But I do understand in theory why he had to bite him, if we are pretending he didn't have the strength to lift him.

We're not pretending anything! Scott has been displayed as physically weak a number of times, the one that sticks out for me is when they try to rob the armored truck, and when Scott is fighting the beta from the Yakuza says "you have the eyes of an alpha, but where is the strength?". Plus we have absolutely no idea how strong wendigos are, maybe they are an especially strong supernatural species.
Reply

I feel like they go back and forth between Scott's strength, sometimes he is strong and other times he isn't. I think they have established his isn't a very good fighter, but he has shown strength on other occasions, as I pointed out when he was tossing Jackson around the locker room. Also the strength of the wendigo wasn't really relevant to my point. I wasn't saying he should have been able to toss the wendigo around, I said the wendigo only had him pinned to the wall and Scott theoretically should have been able to pull Liam up so he could get a grip on the wall, if not toss him over it. In the later episode where Liam is trapped in that well Scott was able to grab him with one arm and pull him up, why not this time?
Honestly it isn't a big issue to me because I like the idea that Scott is dealing with turning someone into a werewolf, I was simply playing devils advocate and explaining why I can see why some people could argue it was unnecessary to turn Liam.
As for the armoured truck thing, to me it had a lot to do with him not having much control over his alpha abilities, and the fact he really doesn't have much of a pack.
I would actually like them to explain a little more about pack equaling strength. Is it only those he turned, or can it be anyone that is in his little gang? Like does having a banshee and a fox matter? Also how do you join a pack if it is not the alpha that made you. Derek is basically a part of Scott's pack and I always see him that way, but is there a special thing they are supposed to do to actually join, or do they just ask like Aiden and Ethan did?

I know TW's timeline doesn't make a lot of sense, but I thought they got dated as Juniors back in 3A? Because in season 2, Melissa was talking to Scott about how his grades were low, and so he might get held back in Sophomore year while all his friends would be Juniors. And then 3A took place at the beginning of the school year after summer break. So logically in S4 they would be second semester Juniors, right? Because lacrosse season starts late Feb-mid March, right?

Yes that is what I thought too. I am so worried they are gonna graduate out the characters and it will really suck. I watched this show for Stiles and Derek, they were my favourite characters.

Some people really want Lydia to be with Stiles so they're not going to give Malia a chance. I like Malia; I just hope she doesn't turn bad later on. And I have to add that I'll always want Stiles to get together with Lydia (I can't stop wishing for it). But in the mean time, it's good to see Stiles with someone who cares about him. He finally has a girlfriend!

Yes and no. I think a 7 year age difference isn't that big of a deal. It is more that she is still in high school and he is working as a cop, plus she is still technically in her teen years so it seems worse. But if she was like 19/20 and he was 26/27 it wouldn't seem like an issue. Especially because to me relationships should be more about whether you are emotionally and intellectually equal rather than age, and Lydia is a genius, she is intelligent and pretty mature. She has handled a lot of issues over the seasons and really grown as a person. The age difference just doesn't bother me all that much.

I'm a Stydia shipper but I think it's healthy to give Stiles a new love interest. Lydia has been having experiences in the love field through all these seasons but Stiles haven't; he doesn't know how to be a boyfriend so I find natural that the writers want him to learn it before endgame happens. It's just that I don't trust Malia.

I like the character, she'sa breath of fresh air for the show and for Stiles and I get that she still doesn't know how to coexist with others after 8 years living alone as an animal. I mean, I know she's not Scott's beta (she's a werecoyote, not a werewolf) but she's in Scott's pack afterall and despite she's trying to behave properly, my biggest fear is that she really doesn't want to.

I don't know if I've explained myself xD so I'll give you an example: when the Calaveras took Lydia and Malia said that she'd leave her (and Kira, if they both were injured) behind but not Stiles, it made me think that she isn't really learning to coexist within a pack, withing a group of friends. She'd save Stiles, which probes she's learning to care about others, but she wouldn't save anyone else, which probes she choses who she cares about. And her chosing not to give a damn about anyone else in the pack but Stiles is what makes me not to trust her.

@SweetMissJaye, I agree with each and every of your words. I loved Lydia's scream part on the opening credit sequence and when I saw that it had been replaced with Malia's introduction, I felt truly disappointed.

I don't trust Malia, either. I wonder if she can truly care for anyone after being in the wild as an animal for so long. It does seem that she cares for Stiles and it's typical of (some) teenage girls to be very dedicated to their significant others. Right now, I can't see her doing something to betray Stiles but I feel like she could really care less about everyone else. Still, I am glad to see her on the show (although she hasn't yet earned her place in the opening credit sequence). :P

The only reason I still have some hope for that relationship is because I remember the depth of Stiles' feelings for Lydia, especially in season 1. I didn't think it was just a crush. I think he really had strong feelings for her, maybe even felt love for her, and it's not easy for feelings like that to go away.

I'm a creeper for Stydia moment but I barely saw some on these 3 episodes:

- Stiles not willing to leave her behind with the Calaveras (but so did Scott, so it's not Stydia, it's a pack thing).

- Stiles not willing to leave her alone with young Derek in the vet clinic (but I guessed it was because it'd have been dangerous for her, not because he was jealous of young and cute Derek)

- Her face when she heard Stiles worring about Malia leaving. I don't think she was jealous of Malia, I think she was just awkward with their intimate admissions, but it keeps bugging me the way she wasn't paying attention until Stiles started begging Malia not to scare him like that again, and why -after Malia said that she woud never leave without him- Stiles glanced at the rear mirror (as if instinctively he wanted to check how Lydia had taken that line), and the way she looked so uncomfortable when Stiles saw her face throught the rear mirror (because I assume that their eyes met). And I like to think that Malia noticed that and looked to the backseat to check on Lydia (maybe she saw Stiles's glance and perceived Lydia's heart speeding out of nervousness?), and only after that she came up with that line about she would leave Kira and Lydia behind.











Also, on 3B season finale they hinted that Malia would become Lydia's new best friend, but I seriously doubted it then and strongly doubt it now, because in spite of Lydia being nice to her, she's also way too done with Beacon Hill shit to being willing to deal with Malia's rudeness too.

I just think Stiles and Lydia really care about each other, they have become really close and do love each other as really good friends. I do think there still will eventually be a romantic thing between them, though I don't see Lydia as the type to go after Stiles while he is with someone else, I think she cares about Stiles too much for that and I do think she genuinely likes Malia. I am worried that Malia might become a little territorial because Stiles is very protective of Lydia, but also once she starts feeling betrayed by everyone when she finds out about Peter being her dad. Ultimately, I don't see their relationship lasting indefinitely, but until it is over I intend to enjoy every second.

Maybe I missed something but I thought that the 3b finale pointed to *Kira* being Lydia's new bff. You know, cause she's Allison's replacement.

And as for signs, I'm mostly pointing to the obvious one of Aiden and Lydia going through Stiles' room in 3b and he pointed out to her that he kept something of hers and tells her that Stiles still cares for her.

It's TV, nobody can be in a happy relationship forever. There's no drama in that. Have any couples in TW lasted? Scott/Allison? Derek/Kate? Lydia/Jackson? Allison/Isaac? Lydia/Aiden? Ethan/Danny? Derek/Jennifer? Hell, even Chris/Victoria ended. If TW continues to stay on the air, they're pretty much guaranteed to break up. It's the law of television. Even Xander and Anya broke up.

Does anyone remember that if the werewolf eyes are yellow it means that they are betas? I think Derek is confused because now he is Scott's beta (remember in Hale's vault, he couldn't help but join Scott when he called his pack?), not because Paige is still alive or anything...

Or that maybe the eyes turn blue not because you killed but because of the guilt you feel for killing and Derek is finally over it.

To quote you; "a child was stolen by gypsies". Wow, did not expect to read that, How about you write about other stereotypes, like how Mexicans are lazy or how African-Americans are all doing drugs and living off the well-fare system. You wouldn't would you, because that's not cool and people would bombard you with hate mail instantly. Guess what son, typing up something like that about a whole minority group, even if it is "just" a joke, is not okay either. Unfortunately, it's still considered OK by many to look down and accuse "gypsies" of all kinds of things but how about you be one of those who don't. Be careful with your words and think about how they make people look and feel. You messed up Price Peterson.

I'm American but I live in Europe, and I find it so interesting that "Gypsies" are still some sort of persecuted class here. When I think gypsy, I think fiction, Hunchback of Notre Dame, dancing with tamborines, hoop earrings, I don't know, just stereotypes. No American ACTUALLY thinks gypsies have been responsible for any child-snatching, because it's ludicrous and sounds more like a joke than anything else. BUT it's a sensitive topic for Europeans. On the other hand, Europeans say and do all sorts of offensive things about native Americans because they don't know any better. Don't realize it's offensive, since it's not part of their experience. I don't know, I think maybe it's not possible to be PERFECTLY PC all the time. We can't all have perfect awareness of all the things that may or may not offend people. Just need to try to learn as we go and hope no one jumps down our throats for our missteps.

Unfortunately, ratings are not calculated in the U.S. solely based on who has their TV tuned into the show. They are actually calculated by a company called Nielsen. Nielsen extrapolates the ratings based on the results of a survey sampling. I think there are about 25,000 (give or take) families in the sample at any given time? Not entirely sure of the exact numbers. But unless you're part of that sample (you'd know if you were, and you wouldn't be allowed to talk about it), your views don't really "count" towards the ratings. Sad but true.

Also TW is getting pretty low ratings this season so far. It wouldn't be concerning (they're on par with S1 & S2), except their budget is much higher now. If they can't pull in the ratings to compensate for their budgetary expenses, then they have every right to be worried. But it's early in the season, so I wouldn't start making calls on the show's fate just yet.

I don't think we will really be in jeopardy of not having a season 5.

I'm a little disappointed with the ratings. Ive never really known actually how they are calculated. I expected some folks to go away just because they were so head over heals Allison fan.

I actually expected the season opening to be higher. I know a lot of people who haven't been totally satisified but are still watching.

With almost 4.5 million likes on facebook, (I know some of those are international), to me anything under 2 million people watching is questionable.

That's what I'm saying! Last season had multiple episodes already over 2 million viewers at this point. This season already has 2 episodes at 1.55 which is not good. Season 3a or 3b didn't have one episode that low.

Your probably right about season 5 not being in jeopardy. But if it gets the ratings this season is getting. They'll be cancelled quick.

Actually personally I think a show that draws 1.5 million consistently probably would be ok with teen wolf.

I'm just having a hard time reconciling the facts around the ratings. I know there are a lot fewer viewers during the summer. But I would have thought the ratings would have taken a hit last year naturally going against Monday Night football and Blacklist.

I'm wondering if maybe Under the Dome and Teen Wolf share a larger audience than what I would have thought.

Or... You know... The show is going down in quality?

I still watch it but mostly out of inertia. It keeps getting dumber and dumber and quite a lot of people I know dropped it all together.

Earlier on, you could easily compare this show to the paint-by-the-numbers supernatural CW style shows.

On the one hand, it was awful to look at in comparison (special effects with a low budget are bad...) but on the other it had an amazing writing to it that surpassed them all.

The world was built wonderfully, there were plenty of dominant minor characters, there was a plot, most of the time it made a lot of sense (with obvious exceptions), characters acted logically and consistently etc

But as the show progressed, it has gotten worse and worse.

Season 2 was good until the crappy near endings episodes (Matt the Kenema master made no sense and don't get me started on the "love story" of Jackson and Lydia)

3A totally fluctuated (power levels off the charts from minute to the other, the whole "derek is dead" crap, the ash circles)

3B was an absolute disaster where you could practically read the writers comments on every scene. We really need character A to go to X so we'll just show him walking there regardless of what he was doing currently.
Most notable offense: The gang knows for a fact that Stiles is possessed and just let him go off on his own to the asylum where he could harm any number of innocent people without caring for their well being or even Stile's well being since he was still being hunted down by the Oni for no other reason except they needed him to go there.

And frankly, season 4 isn't all that better. I mean dear lord even Price couldn't defend that stupid torture scene in the premier. Not to mention the insanely cheesy slow motions are getting way overused (and it's only 3 episodes) or Kira's dumb fighting with weapons that look like crap.

Yes, this is only one man's opinion and clearly a lot of others would disagree. That is why it's called opinions.

But if you ask me, there is no reason to look for a magical reason for ratings declining other than the obvious: The show is getting worst.

I totally agree. The thing about Scott was that he had two major things about him:
1) He managed to reach the heart of those around him, making them stronger as a group without having any single individual being overly powerful.
2) By using his wits to outsmart foes who were way way more powerful than him.
Like how he tricked Gerard with the pills or blinding DEMON WOLF

Scott didn't need to be an alpha. It was actually a heck of a lot better when Derek was the Alpha and used as a backup muscle.

Making Scott and Alpha and Derek a beta ruined both of them.

In general I'm not going to argue the quality of the show at this point.

And I'm not saying there is some magical reason for the lower ratings.

I am saying that for all the years I have been watching television. It is extremely peculiar that the premiere ratings weren't higher, especially with critics seemingly liking the season so much. With a rabid fanbase like teen wolf has, losing almost 1/3 of the viewers from episode 1 to episode 2 is not normal.

Although it did happen with the 1st season as well.

I was talking to a friend that lives and dies teen wolf, way more than I do and we were discussing the issue the other day. He feels there is some TW burnout going on. Having gone from june starts for season 1,2 then starting in june on season 3 for 24 episodes, then coming back directly in june for season 4 didn't give long enough. Plus I use the example of the new Hawaii Five O, the first couple of seasons I loved maybe more than teen wolf because of the relationship between the 2 main characters McGarrett and Danno but by season 3/4 (and a time slot change) it just wasn't the same.

I think you might have meant to post that to reply to a different comment I made...

But regardless, there are plenty of shows that seriously go down in numbers. Especially after the premiere. And especially if it's that bad. People go for a hype, it fails, they lose interest and go elsewhere.

But either way, I went to check the numbers myself and now I find your post even more puzzling.

Here's the season breakdown for first and second episodes of each season (according to wikipedia)
Season 1 : 2.17 -& 1.47
Season 2: 2.11 -& 1.75
Season 3a: 2.36 -& 2.11
Season 3b: 2.43 -& 1.91
Season 4: 2.18 -& 1.5

Sure, the gap is larger than the previous one but aren't that off from the previous years.

So yeah, I'm still pointing this towards a drop in quality.
If I'm correct about my prediction, the rest of the season should reflect that as well.

"I mean, I don't know if this is too early to say, but is there a Royal Rumble of monsters going on in this town? Will there be even more monsters?"
Of course, we should not forget that the town is now a beacon for every other supernatural creature! I'm still waiting to find out what is Parrish!

... Will Kira join lacrosse?
God I loved the show hinted it. But it should be a female team right? Maybe Malia could tag along

... Will The Mute show up in your nightmares?

Oh God yes he will. Legit scary!

... What's the better hinted-at romance, Derek and Braeden or Lydia and Parrish?
The first, because I don't see TW going for the illegal romance. Also, I don't see Lydia going for it, she's too smart for that. Derek and Braeden also have so much chemistry!

And what kind of supernatural creature is the second new hunk on the lacrosse team? Cause seriously, they hinted at it pretty hard, right? Of course, maybe they're just playing us, but IDK, is it all just to make Stiles and Scott feel inadequate?
Because that's just mean, writers, plain mean!

Also, I agree that Stiles seems too wheezy for someone who's running around with superpowered creatures all the time, unless it can be explained by his nogitsune-induced "illness" last season - I don't expect he got a lot of stamina-building exercise at Eichen house, you know? :p
(Yes, I know he was only there for about a day or so, shush!)

And last, but not least: Derek and Braeden have nice chemistry. :)
Parrish and Lydia not so much - I'd buy them as teaming up to Fight Crime!, but not as a romance.
Besides, we still don't know what's up with the good deputy - I'm still going with some sort of hunter, or Whitelighter.

So...

Are we meant to assume for sure that all the bodies in the meat cellar were killed by the Wendigo family? There were a lot of corpses. Surely that kind of carnage would raise the suspicions of local authorities. Or, like the omega wolf in Season 2, did they collect the bodies of the recently dead for meat? Either way works, and the boy seemed unfazed by killing the deputy and threatening Liam. I was just so pleased by the twist.

Oh, Lydia, you always find the creepiest things. While I like her chemistry with Parrish, I'm generally reluctant to pair up everyone on a show. I'm also very eager to find out what Parrish is...and whether or not he knows what he is. And I love that Lydia's got a reputation at the sheriff's station.

Malia's my favorite. Easily.

Yes, the cellar is insanely dumb. I said it before, season 3a (which was what? about a month or 2 in the show's timeline?) had the Darach going around killing people like a serial killer with major media coverage. You would think people would be far more inclined to notice people going missing in that time...

As for Lydia \ Parrish, I'm not sure why everyone think there is something romantic going on there. I'm guessing that Parrish is most likely a supernatural creature and he knows what Lydia is.

I really think I'll enjoy this season. Actors come and go, and they've (Teen Wolf officials) done a good job at replacing the ones they can't control (I would like to know what happened to the other characters though- Danny? Ethan? Where you at boys? Awkward if they've graduated).
I'm hoping Derek and Braeden go off to find Kate together (solution to paying, if he just pays with sexy eye contact) and as for Lydia and Officer Take Your Shirt Off Please, I like the idea of them. His character is pretty groovy, Lydia will make a good addition to his out of the loop, crime fighting skills!

Ethan told Danny he was leaving at the end of last season. Danny... I have no clue about. If he was leaving then they could have easily told the audience that by including his name in the list of people who had left that Coach read out, but no...

They said they'll explain how Danny knew about the wolves... So I'm guessing he'll be back later this year.

I just figured he knew because he wasn't an idiot and had eyes.

But then, I spent the whole of Merlin thinking that someone had to have noticed that Merlin was a wizard...

I hate that ppl resent malia I mean how can u.. She's fucking awesome!and adorable! And stile and malia they rnt shoving us down our throats it's nice and this is what they r and what they do and when stiles realized the color of her markers were the same colors and reasons he used his yarn colors! Uuuhhh I almost died! Then he kissed her! To much and u can see they growing together plus NOT ALL relationships start off with a slow burn!!!! I like this much better also I think they r having sex cuz in episode 2 the scratch marks on his back def rnt from just making out! Hahah and after he told her he'd promised to help her study then he said we'd get back to that and she made a adorable face and was like lost of that and she got close and turned over and he was like ssssoooo much of that! Hahahah love them I think this is nicety see a different relationship growing in a different way!

Price don't let the haters get to you! I totally thought the same as you. Yes, the first two episodes were slow going and seemed a. Little pointless but I remembered feeling that way last season a&b and the two seasons before hand. Third episode in and Kapow!! We remember why we love this show so god dang much! As far as you making mistakes, jeeez people, give the guy a break! Remember when he was sick last season and missed one recap? This $h!t is hard work! He makes it look easy!!! Of course he may forget a fact or two along the lines. The only fact I thought u may have got wrong was when Malia met Peter and you said neither of them are aware of their father daughter relationship. From what I remember, Allison and Lydia told peter, in Derek's loft, last season. Maybe I'm wrong???!

Anyway I love your recaps because I totally missed the part about the new Doctor, being Liam's stepdad. No one else picked up the resemblance the doctor had to DMX huh? Just me? Damn I'm old. Anyway, this episode had everything you could want in an episode of TW. A cold open, cheesy yet horrifying gore, amazing product placements by Samsung and Nike, and LACROSSE! I absolutely HATE when shows and even movies, focus too much time on a sport but for some odd reason, I actually missed it, on teen wolf! I think because it reminded me that these characters were real teens, with real obligations and it showed their struggle between wanting to be innocent kids, and having to deal with very adult issues all at the same time. Just like teen mom, except without screaming infants and dead beat dad's. Ok peter excluded.

Anyway the Mute terrified me! I hate that guy! I was so jumpy for the rest of the night, after seeing that! I have to say I really wish they'd drop the whole Kira /Scott romance aspect of the show. They have zero chemistry and their relationship seems forced and obviously awkward. I was really hoping they'd move out of town but obviously, since they changed the opening sequence, it looks like she's here to stay. Her character annoys me. She's too naive and immature. I feel like she's a dumbed down version of Allison. Malia on the other hand, is totally perfect! I love her character. Tough and witty!

This was a great episode. So nice, I had to watch it twice.

Price, since you brought up True Blood... I wish the writers of that show watched Teen Wolf and took notes to see how a good genre show is done. And you're right, I don't exactly remember what happened each season, but I can remember the anticipation and excitement and overall good mood after watching. I hated some storylines, like Maryann the maenad, and everything to do with the wolves, but it was never enough to taint the overall experience. These days I'm just bored and annoyed, and occasional good plot is not enough to make me like the show again.
Teen Wolf, on the other hand, is a gift that keeps on giving. It is consistently excellent and ax-citing ;-) The bar is raised really high after season 3, but this episode was definitely one of the series best.

Probably not possible considering True Blood was around a few years before Teen Wolf. Though I do agree with you. True Blood started its own thing and then kinda had to just go with the flow from there. True Blood is also the only show where I love almost every character besides the main character! I despise Sookie Stackhouse. She angers me. Almost as much as Kira does in Teen Wolf right now lol

Okay, so True Blood. Until the last few seasons, I enjoyed True Blood despite its weaknesses. In addition to some of the show's sloppy narrative weirdness and patchy character development, it also had some really compelling plots and really strong character dynamics as well as several very snappy dialogue writers. For consecutive seasons Pam was hilarious, Terry was delightful, and Lafayette could have held the show together. Recently, the weaknesses (which were always there) have overtaken the strengths. I'll probably watch it out eventually, since this is its final season, but I don't enjoy it like I used to.

Terry was delightful? Every time they made a survey on who should they get rid of, him and Arline were first (closely followed by the wolves)
