This episode didn’t let me down. It was a nice follow-up from last week, though of course it wasn’t 100% perfect. This is Teen Wolf, headed by the one and only Jeff Davis. Of course there were problems.
Let’s start with Deaton. Yes, his entrance was cool. Yes, him paralyzing that one man was also cool. But where did he come from? I thought the flashbacks from last episode were happening in Japan, so when he showed up, I was like, “Deaton flew to Japan?”
Who recommended him to the gang? Since when does he make house calls? Why does he make house calls? I thought he was done with all of this except for Scott? When did he come into this storyline? The last time we saw him he was talking about doors and jars. Now he’s all about possession? Why couldn’t we have seen Scott talking to him about this? You know, at work? They could’ve worked a scene or two in last episode since Deaton was actually mentioned with regards to security.
Lydia’s in this episode :(. Nice acknowledgment of the number of deaths at/related to that school, though.
When did she decide Aiden had repented enough to model for her? -__-.
“Stiles, why are you whispering?” “Because I think there’s someone in here with me.” Creepy!
I’m sorry it’s been so long since I reviewed an episode of this show. That’s how long it’s been since I watched an episode. A combination of no time + not feeling like watching it meant no activity on this blog. But I watched Silverfinger, and I’m about to watch Riddled, so I’m going to be all caught up.
This is less formal than a review. They’re basically my thoughts as I watched the episode. A liveblog that’s not completely live.
I don’t have enough words to gush about the perfection that is Scott Mccall and Kira Yukimura, separately and together. But I will damn sure give it the old college try.
This episode was actually more good than bad. It certainly had a couple of lines that made me chuckle.
We opened right where we left off, unfortunately: with Derek and Peter. They’re being tortured because someone wants to know where the she-wolf is. How many people think the she-wolf is Kira? I know she was running scared from the were-coyote, but maybe she doesn’t know what she is yet. I want her to be supernatural (I only know the bare bones about spoilers for this show), and I hoped she would have already known what she was. To that end, who thinks her dad’s bumbling is simply a cover, that he’ll sober up and be serious as soon as Kira discovers what she is?
And we’re back!
If an episode ever lived up to its name, I guess this would be it? The premier of Teen Wolf’s second half was all about the consequence of Scott, Stiles, and Allison’s decisions to become near dead in order to save their parents last we saw them.
No one actually talked about the events from Lunar Ellipse, let alone most of last season (neither the Alpha pack plot, nor the Darach plot was talked about. Only the Nemeton, literally the stump, got a shout out). Scott, Stiles, and Allison spent the episode in various stages of breathlessness (Stiles more so than any of them) because of the hallucinations and nightmares they were having. This episode was literally “This is what’s happening with our characters.” And I don’t know how I feel about it.
I don’t do New Year resolutions, but I did create a short list of what I want to do in 2014, and “pick up where I left off” with this blog is one of them. Towards the end of the year, (around October maybe?) I started lagging in reviewing some of the shows listed in my header. Two of them, specifically: Sleepy Hollow and Witches of East End. I still am going to catch up on the episodes I’ve missed and review them, though Sleepy Hollow’s backed up reviews will most likely be written rather than recorded.
Anyways, a big thank you to everyone who visited the blog in 2013! Especially the ones who came back.
It’s weird to think that this will probably be the last time anything The Vampire Diaries-related shows up in a JAJP annual report.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 32,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
