Rinzy rates it a B!
The final set of episodes for Teen Wolf has began! After 6 years we say goodbye to the supernatural works of Beacon Hills for good (… or for now)
After the adventure with the Ghostriders, there seemed to be no dangling plot on the show worthy to expand upon; understandably, this brought about some sort of confusion/intrigue on what to expect. But trust Teen Wolf to surprise we the viewers.
Whatever the theme is this year appears to be a repercussion of our teens interfering with the wild hunt of the Ghost riders – they let something out.
For years on the show we’ve only had one Hellhound – Parish; and now we’ve got a new one, who happens to be more in tune with his powers than Parish. After creeping about the first 30 minutesof the episode, this new guy got to fight and ddefeat our hero, and almost Liam. Our villain (for now) appears to be searching for someone the wild hunt couldn’t keep, as evident from his dialogue with Liam.
“It won’t stay hidden. It must be stopped. Nothing else matters.” Those were his exact words.
Lydia with her Banshee powers gets a premonition that gives her (and us) better insight into the first plot of the year.
When the squad returned from the other side (where the Ghost riders kept them), they brought back something with them; something they think only the new Hellhound can send out.
Then there’s the creepy new counsellor of the school. At first, she seemed too inquisitive; not too long later, she appeared creepy. Finally, she came about as scarry. Our sexy new counsellor surprised us when she appeared to have ties to the hunters, and killed the new Hellhound… We’ll let time better sort out that plot.
This episode wasn’t funny, and I want to believe it’s because Stiles wasn’t in the bulk of it. I felt Malia gave lines that seemed forced. She tried too hard to be funny.
Added bonus: We get to see, or should I say perceive, Derek Hale again. At the FBI academy where Stiles currently hopes to start his future, the introductory class they have contains a video footage of Derek running in the woods (from season 1). And when Stiles asks why he’s on the footage, he’s told Creek is wanted for mass murder. I think the FBI opened an investigation into the Hale family’s arson case we the viewers knew was caused by Peter Hale (Derek’s uncle).
We’re off to a good start, let’s see how this final season goes.
