Uh-oh. That last episode was nuts, no? Shall we tear right into the latest episode of Teen Wolf together? There is so much to go through! I mean, last week we had to deal with finding out that Jackson was the Kanima… and this week? Who knows what’s going to happen? If you haven’t watched the latest episode of Teen Wolf, you can do so here. Read along with me, it’s going to be a heck of a … trot? I don’t know, “ride” didn’t see appropriate but that’s what wolves do, right? Trot? I can do better that that. Because there is so much afoot in this episode. Better wolf-y analogy. Yes, I like that.
We arrive on the scene just as Allison is dropping Lydia off. Allison needs to contain the horror (and to protect Lydia, of course). We learn that not only does Lydia not really understand the level of love felt between Allison and Scott (how could she? She was with a rotten soul like Jackson) but she seems to understand the need to keep a secret.
Does she look happy or what?
Derek, Scott, and the Argent family are all hunting the same thing: the Kanima/Jackson. The only person who seems to be on Team Jackson is Scott. Doesn’t he understand that by trying to save Jackson, he is inherently putting himself in danger? Oh he does? … Right. Scott is a hero.
Scott eventually runs after the reptile because the Kanima/Jackson narrowly escapes being killed by Allison’s father, but not after snaking around Grandpa Gerard. Creepy. And weird. But these days in Beacon Hills, what isn’t?
Scott and Stiles find the Kanima/Jackson (hereafter named the Kanison) making its way to the bar. A gay bar. Which Danny is entering. Which means that Scott and Stiles must break in and save him. Because it looks like the Kanison is out to get Danny.
Stiles and Scott have their missions. Stiles must save Danny and Scott must stop the Kanison.
But the Kanison is one wily character… he uses the mist as a distraction. As the Kanima strikes the crowd, rendering many dude paralyzed on the dance floor (umm… that sounds like me on the dance floor). Derek comes into the club swinging because he’s hell bent on killing the Kanison. And he gets pretty close too, because we end up with Jackson eating pavement pretty hard.
And Jackson is left there, bleeding. … Someone get the ambulance? Maybe?
Meanwhile, Lydia and new dude have a weird connection over her pup, Prada. Now that’s a weird sentence I didn’t think I’d say. It won’t be the last of this guy I’m sure.
What are the boys going to do? They got Jackson in the back seat, they got paralyzed bodies in the gay club, and they got Sheriff Stilinsky all up in their grill… yep, stuck between a reptile and a hard place, I’d say.
Gerard and Mr. Argent have a moment in the car. I have a feeling Mr. Argent does not quite trust his own father. Stick with this idea, Mr. Argent. Stick with it.
The boys put Jackson in a paddy wagon, locked up pretty tight. Stiles makes sure that no one comes looking for Jackson by texting his father with Jackson’s phone. Fool-proof, right? Not so much…
While at school, Gerard has a tender moment with his granddaughter, Allison. Oh wait, it’s Creep-o Grandad, and instead of giving her some candy and a loving pat on the back, Allison gets subjected to a pulse-based lie detector test. Thanks a heap, Gerard. Wonder what she’ll get at Christmas?
Mommy And if that wasn’t bad enough, Mrs. Argent has infiltrated the school and is playing Mommy Dearest-substitute teacher. Is Allison the only normal one in this family? At the end of class, Mrs. Argent stops Allison and warns her that the family doesn’t need a reason to “kill a sixteen-year-old boy”. Umm… how about you just don’t kill a sixteen-year-old boy?
Stiles spends some time explaining to Jackson what is happening in a short recap that goes something like this: “You, reptile. You, killer.”
Allison and Stiles meet up but before they can rejoice over one more night that they’ve survived, Stiles realizes that the police are on their way because Jackson’s parents have declared him missing. Whoops. Guess that “Love you” at the end of the text Stiles sent was a bit much.
As Scott tries to figure out why the Kanison went after Danny at the club, Scott gets pulled over by his mother. Apparently, Scott’s failing. Yikes. Guess you can’t be a hero and stay on top of chemistry.
As Allison, Stiles, and Scott contemplate what they want to do with Jackson, it is decided that they would try to help him, much to Stiles’ disapproval. Scott puts it plainly, Jackson has no one. No one to help him. No one to guide him. And they need to help him because of it. Jackson overhears with his jacked up hearing and a tear rolls down that perfectly chiseled jawline. Jackson might be a monster, but he still feels.
Allison and Scott share a moment. Honestly, these two with Ezra and Aria of the PLL universe make the cutest couples on television. Le sigh.
Jackson watches himself turn into the Kanima. Now, will he understand that he’s a monster? He escapes the paddy wagon as Allison and Scott sleep in eachother’s arms.
Allison, Stiles, and Scott realize that they can’t handle the Kanison without help and decide to tell their parents.
But Jackson beat the boys to it. … Are they in trouble?
Lydia helps Allison decipher more of the bestiary and they find out that the Kanima isn’t looking for a friend like the counselor had previously said (Maya, are you good or bad?) but is looking for a master.
What could this mean? Could Jackson be under the control of the master already (probably)? Will Mrs. Argent quit being so creepy? Will Scott pass Chemistry? Who knows. But we’ll be watching the next episode of Teen Wolf together next Monday, July 9 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT right here on MuchMusic.
