Welcome to the second episode of Teen Wolf! If you haven’t been caught up yet, check out our recap of the last episode here. And if you’re keen on your Teen Wolf, then watch the episode as we go along. It’s nice to have you in the pack.
What we see here is a seemingly innocent situation: father and son, having dinner. I take back last episode’s commentary of Isaac looking like a zombie. However, he does look sad and scared for good reason: his father is abusive. And scary. So, he’s a monster of the regular variety.
Clearly, monsters have problems when their children don’t do well in school. And they feel the need to punish.
Isaac, frightened, gets hit by some smashed glass… but wait, shouldn’t a would bleed dripping down and not get sucked back up? Unless… yes. It must mean that Isaac is now a werewolf. Or Wolverine.
Here’s Jackson, throwing out his sludge-rags from the night previous. He can hear the ruckus from his neighbour’s house and like the jerk he is, does nothing to help.
As Isaac runs out into the night, his father does the fatherly thing to do and drives in the rain to find his son. And when he thinks he does… he gets surprised by an even bigger monster than he and gets shredded and killed.
Cut to another cute scene of Scott and Allison! Looks like love will find a way.
This Beacon Hills principle doesn’t quite know it yet, but he’s going to get cattle prodded to resign by Allison’s family. How creepy and scary is that?! Almost as creepy as Mr. Harris. Yikes. I want someone to cattle prod Mr. Harris. That would make me feel a tad bit better for his behaviour towards Stiles. Yes, I have a soft spot for Stiles.
Isaac emerges to find Derek and to proclaim his innocence and despite being able to, he didn’t kill his father while in beast mode.
In one of the funniest moments of the episode, Stiles proves the old adage, “Never put chains in your locker”. Oh, that’s not a thing? Well it should be. Stiles is a good friend though, don’t you guys think? He tries to make sure his BFF doesn’t mangle his face off by chaining him during the full moon.
What are you guys looking at?
Lydia isn’t even naked!
And good thing (she’s in school and that would just be so awkward). Lydia and Allison brave the hallways together and try to escape the other kind of torture: high school.
With Scott realizing that there is another werewolf on the team, he must try to sniff him out (pun intended).
Nope, not him. But Scott does eventually find out that it is Isaac.
As Sheriff Stilinsky tries to piece it all together, he finds himself as another person on the “Jackson is a Jerk” committee (“Welcome!”).
In order to piece together what is going on, Stiles and Scott get themselves to the principle’s office to hear what is going on between the sheriff and Jackson. They realize that with Isaac’s history of getting abuse from his father that that is enough for a motive to kill.
Unfortunately before Scott and Stiles can do anything, they must speak with the principle… who turns out (surprise, surprise) to be Gerard. Gulp. Aren’t grandparents supposed to be cute and cuddly? Why does he scare the crap out of me?
Isaac gets pulled by the police before Scott can get to him. As a newly minted werewolf, Isaac might kill, and you guessed it: it is a full moon tonight.
Jackson’s mission this episode (other than to be a meathead) is to make contact with weirdo photographer from the last episode and to show how creepy he can get (well, when you film yourself like how he’s about to film himself… that’s creepy).
Meanwhile, Scott is investigating Isaac’s house with Derek. And what he finds is simply horrifying. It looks as if Isaac was Harry Potter’ed into a fridge by his father.
And while Stiles is trying to figure out what’s going on, he gets contacted by Allison who reveals that an Argent convoy has been dispatched to assassinate Isaac. It looks like they have realized that Isaac is a werewolf and must stop the menace. And guess who needs to save the day? Stiles and Allison to the rescue.
Back at Isaac’s, Derek talks to Scott about joining the pack. By joining the pack, Scott loses Allison, but he might anyways as war has been declared between the Argents and the werewolves. Scott concedes to working with Derek, but only because he knows that their joined forces might help Isaac.
Jackson’s getting read-ayyyy for his big debut.
Turns out Allison is a great shot and tries to slow down the assassin by shooting him with an arrow. Gross.
As she tries to make sense of it all, she heads to Isaac’s house to track down Scott. When she finds him, she then is tasked with tying him up in the Harry Potter fridge to make sure he stays safe while the moon is out. Suddenly, she’s attacked by a serpent-like creature and her screams force Scott to bust out of the fridge like Indiana Jones and to try to protect her.
Meanwhile, Derek saves the day by literally growling the human back on Isaac. How many times do you think will it take for Derek to be bored of saying, “I’m the Alpha.”?
What is that thing?
And looks like Jackson’s wish for power hasn’t been answered: he’s not a werewolf. And if his body has fought off the virus… does that mean he is impervious to curses? So many questions!
