Last week we saw the Kanima/Jackson go all cray in a gay bar, Lydia got a surprise visitor, and the boys got into deep trouble with their parents over trying to keep Jackson safe (that’s the thanks that they get). If you haven’t caught up with last week’s episode, read the recap! And if you have and you wanna watch Restraint, this week’s episode, do it here. Ready for the recap? There’s more reptilian fun to be had. Let’s shred this episode together. And no, the allusions to werewolves and things that go bump in the night won’t stop.
This week’s episode begins in the creepiest trailer park known to man. Yep, people live here. Long story short? The Kanima kills a dude and goes after his girlfriend who happens to be preggers.
Jackson, who still could be under the spell of the Master (who are you?), washes the blood from his hands. And his abs.
The parental units get all legal on Stiles and Scott and we learn that Jackson has placed a restraining order on the guys. Sheesh. They were only trying to keep you safe, Jackson. This prompts Mrs. McCall to corner Scott about his failing grades, his inability to stay out of trouble… if only she knew her son is a teenage werewolf.
Derek is still trying to keep his pack together and focused. He’s not doing the best job these days (poor guy) but what can he do? He’s trying to keep safe too from the raging Argent tribe.
Allison, Scott, and Stiles try to share information about the Kanima. They try to figure out how they can sort out the Kanima’s master and they figure out that the Kanima can’t turn into a werewolf because of some sort of issue. Jackson has plenty of issues.
… Like swallowing reptiles. I lost my lunch. Like f’real.
As if that’s not enough, Mrs. McCall found condoms on Scott’s desk. That’s… embarrassing.
But, that might not be an issue as New Guy is mad hitting on Allison for a slice of normal. Watch out Scott, you got competition.
As Stiles tries to pry info out of Erica, he finds out two pieces of information. First, she knows about the death of Jackson’s real parents and second, Erica had a mad crush on Stiles. But he never knew it.
Meanwhile, Allison has a confrontation with Jackson. In the men’s change room. And Jackson is naked. And all up in her grill. Yep, now this is awkward.
Of course, Scott hears/feels that Allison is in trouble and finds Jackson on top of Allison (still naked) and rages. And nearly takes out the entire men’s change room in the process.
Erica, Stiles, New Guy, Scott, Jackson, and Allison all head to detention because Mr. Harris nearly blows a gasket.
Lydia (who isn’t in the middle of things, surprisingly) gets approached by her secret stalker. He’s cute, suave, a little pale… but nonetheless inviting, right? She better find that flower she was given from last week.
Scott and Stiles try to press for information from Erica.
In a fit, Jackson runs to the men’s washroom. … And truly, the most disgusting scene in Teen Wolf history occurs. That snake he swallowed earlier? It slithers itself out through the side of his eye socket. I think I nearly puked in my mouth three times while writing this sentence.
That’s okay though because Mrs. Argent’s face sobered me up and then some. Yeesh. Mrs. Argent asks a question no teenaged boy wants to answer from his sorta-girlfriend’s mother: “Are you having sex with my daughter?”
As this pseudo-Breakfast Club ends, Jackson turns into a Kanima puppet and goes crazy on the library, debilitating Erica who goes into a seizure, and writes this on the board: “Stay out of my way or I’ll kill all of you.”
Scott says farewell to the lady he loves and goes on to try to save Erica by bringing her to Derek.
After realizing what he must do, he agrees to be part of Derek’s pack on the condition that they not kill him and that they do it on Scott’s terms. I don’t know about you guys but that seems like Scott is more alpha-like anyways, wouldn’t you agree?
And Lydia, Lydia, Lydia. It turns out she has been imagining this boy all along. He’s the manifestation of a teenage Peter Hale and he’s working on a plan to come back. This show just has so many scary and frightening layers, doesn’t it? We’re going to have to sit tight until the next episode of Teen Wolf claws itself out next Monday at 10:30pm ET/ 7:30pm PT right here on MuchMusic.
