What the fuck is going on?! Alright now that I got that out of my system I will proceed with my rant about how this episode was just a buffer episode filled with action so the audience still thinks they’re all badasses.
So where do I begin??
Kate. I never liked her, I always thought she was a pointless annoying bitch. I guess the show does need to try to gain a male audience. I have always told my guy friends they’d love how badass the show is, maybe now if I tell them about Kate Argent they’ll watch it.
Any who, Kate my questions for you are why do you get a tape? Was The Benefactor giving you a heads up, “Hey I’m gonna go kill the people you hate in Beacon Hills, but don’t tell them?” Seriously though her character is confusing and borderline pointless. Like yeah I get her character’s struggle is to figure out how to control being a werewolf, but again why does she get a tape? And what the fuck are her minions and why do they listen to her? I really hate having this many questions for one character…
Now onto Jordan Parish. What are you?!?! I mean besides Lydia’s new love interest, yep I’m predicting that. Is he a banshee, or maybe he’s The Benefactor and playing dumb, in order to gain the packs trust, and then he kills them all!!!! Oh I’m actually excited about his character development because a) he’s gorgeous b) he’s morally just c) he’s a pretty great fucking actor.
Aww and poor Derek!! What the fuck did Kate do to him?! I love how they are subtling hinting that he’s losing his powers. By far the best storyline. His character change is fantastic through the process too. But he can’t die, we all know that right? If he does he’ll come back as a ghost or maybe season 5 is all about him being human, like his wolf side dies, but human side lives!!
Mason. I’m suspicious. I mean he’s essentially Stiles but not as hyper and lazier. He’s questioning everything, acting as sort of the narrator of the show so people don’t get lost if they missed stuff. OR is he The Benefactor!?! OR the writers have no idea what they’re going to do with him so they’re keeping his options open and they might even decide to kill him or ship him off to London for boarding school.
So Scott trying to find Liam was pitiful! You are an ALPHA Scott! If you can yank a burning cord that’s meant to decapitate you, off your neck, I feel like you should be able to sniff out your Beta. But they did have a cute flashback scene between Alpha and Beta that was just so adorable.
Lydia and Stiles need to calm the fuck down. Yeah I get it they want/need to know who else is on the debt list but relax. I mean pushing and getting riled up won’t help any. I hope they learned their lesson cause seriously they should feel bad about Meredith’s death.
Another thought about that, um the evil asinine orderly! Could he be The Benefactor!?! I mean he’s obviously a dick and hates Stiles, and the scene of him taking the noose off Meredith’s neck could be the aftermath of him killing her. I don’t know just another suspect.
Oh and Scott and Stiles, I was worried they weren’t going to have a scene together. I mean you have to have a Scott and Stiles scene. And this scene was almost as precious as their scene before Stiles gets an MRI about being sick(which they never explained the correlation between him and his mom’s brains being the same btw). But still Scott and Stiles do everything together including take money to pay their parents bills that they caused, GO KIDS!
Now Peter. Peter, Peter, Peter. You’re awesome but just another villain buffer to have around for fucked up badass scenes. I wish they hadn’t included him in the comicon trailer revealing that he has a plan against Scott. Cause now I’m prepared and trying to figure it out. If they had left it out, I’d definitely be like wtf to Peter and probably not even notice him being evil.
I do give Teen Wolf props for always making me want to watch more. They have the best cliffhangers that don’t make me want to scream out in frustration.
That’s all for now!
So Pretty Little Liars, I have followed and watched you for the last five seasons. I have actually rewatched the first three seasons in order to see how Toby could possibly be A, and I even considered doing it again when EZRA was A, but by then I had began to give up on you, and here’s why.
So this season, season FIVE, it appears you are starting all over with a new A. They are seniors in high school, they should be graduating soon, so my first question: When’s graduation? Are they even going to be able to graduate considering how little time they spend on school? Is A going to follow them to college? Is this show going to pull a Boy Meets World, where all of the liars go to the same college, thinking everything will be fine and peachy and then DUN DUN DUN A shows up!
Next up Ali. Here’s my theory: She’s A.
Here’s why. So this season began with Aria killing Shana, the last A. So the girls think they’re safe because hooray A is dead. But then Mona and her army of losers begin plotting and being A like because they hate Allison, and I don’t blame them, she’s a bitch. So Ali is not on top at school or even on top in the liars group, because guess what sweetie they moved on and made other friends, because you leaving made them realize that you’re a bitch. So Mona threatens Ali, and this makes Ali realize she needs to do something to defeat the army of losers and get back on top, so why not become A.
Here’s the evidence pointing to her, she was the only one to receive texts from A, what happened to the whole group receiving them? So now you’re probably thinking yeah but she gets attacked by A and Emily saves the day. Umm HELLO Noel Kahn, and other strange friends she’s lied about. Ali could easily have someone attack her knowing at least one of the four liars will come looking for her. Because let’s not forget Ali was the first liar of them all. So I conclude with this, Ali is A because she wants to get back on top or she gets off on bullying, like they showed in all of the flashbacks from the first two seasons; she’s trying to gain sympathy from the other liars in order to keep them close, which is why Toby’s house blew up not the one they were all in because why would she kill herself.
Another note I’d like to add is this: either Ali is A or the writers have no idea who they are ultimately going to make A and are just writing suspenseful pot holes in order to keep the show alive. But if they stay on this route the show will have too many loose ends in order to have a concrete ending. We all got addicted to this show because we wanted to know who A is, so would you please just tell us already? Or at least give us concrete clues so we can try to figure it out on the way without getting frustrated with your loose strings!
So this season is different and I’m not so sure how I feel about it. From the season premiere episode I didn’t think I would like this season because what I liked about Teen Wolf from the beginning was that it was a supernatural show that didn’t ignore the fact that the main characters were in high school. They always managed to loop in dating, grades, skipping school, lacrosse practice, and lying to the parents. But in the season premiere it focused on all things supernatural and made them all seem like perfect heroes, well not perfect but undefeated at least. But this episode caught my attention. Fair warning though I wasn’t happy with the overall story line.
For starters, Scott and Stiles, I love them. They’re great together and have been through a lot. So beginning the show with a failed Stiles and Scott plan was good and beneficial because it reminded us they are still naive kids that are still learning their plans won’t always work.
Now I want to look at the new character Liam. Why and what are they doing are my questions? Why are they making a beta for Scott, it was the last thing he wanted. Why isn’t he beating himself up for it? He was beating himself for breaking the kid’s leg in the last episode and now that he’s made him into a werewolf and he’s cool with it? Doesn’t seem very Scott like to me.
Then they introduced the freshman posse, I just about rolled off my couch when they had Mason questioning Liam, and Scott overlooking the scene and then magically disappearing. I loved that they were paralleling when Scott was turning but if this is a set up for a Teen Wolf: The Next Generation, I simply can’t keep going. TV shows need to realize they will have to end at some point, and closure is always nice for the audience. Leaving things open ended because produces are hopeful to keep making money off a side series or something similar is disgraceful for the audience.
I got scared a second time when the freshman girl kills the werewolf keg seller, like come one is there really another family of hunters, is Liam going to fall in love with her? But then our questions and worries are answered; the freshmen are the evil assassins trying to kill Derek and every other supernatural being in Beacon Hills. So then I question, why are they already showing the audience who they are? This leads me to believe that the freshman will be defeated in the next episode or two. I like that they don’t have the same villain in every episode but then I ask when will it end. When will the gang get smart enough to see their enemies before they are enemies? They’ve been dealing with evil spirits and other supernatural villains for so long you’d think they could tell whom they can and can’t trust by now.
I’d like to move on to Stiles and Malia’s relationship now. I’m on the fence with them. Stiles is being very caring and affectionate towards her, helping her with her homework and her transition to being human and not a coyote and helping her turn on full moons. However, I’m still team Lydia.
Watching Stiles help Malia during the full moon reminded me of how he helped Scott, which then gave me the sense that Stiles doesn’t really like her but cares for her sympathetically. Also she stole his virginity and keeps letting him sleep with her, or so they’ve implied, so this relationship does not seem so sincere.
I know I take TV relationships too seriously but the way Stiles pined and pined for Lydia and confessed so much about his love for her gives me hope that they will be together. Lydia even made the comment that she doesn’t date teenagers anymore; basically she’s waiting for Stiles to grow up still. He’s not ready for her yet, and ladies I think we can all agree that boys, especially teenage boys, still have a lot of growing up to do, constantly.
This brings me to Lydia, my favorite character. She has grown a lot from the first season where she pretended to be the dumb one, when really she’s the one that saves the day because she figures out all of the riddles and secrets (another reason why her and Stiles are perfect for each other, they are problem solvers and do not need each other to save each other, just to be with one another). So Lydia in this episode I loved. I give props to the writers for foreshadowing the cabin party. She needs a key to crack the mysterious code she wrote and bam her mother appears with a key a dangling in the air saying don’t break anything, don’t drink the wine, and comments on animal scratches in the basement. And what happens, a party happens, where stuff breaks, kids drink the wine, Malia scratches her basement and Lydia finds her key, Allison. How perfect and sentimental, because we can’t just forget about Allison and how important she was to the group. Lydia is great because it’s perfect that she’s the smartest one in the group because the quirks that come with being a banshee would make anyone feel crazy, but she embraces it and is able to use her brain to solve problems.
I almost forgot, Derek and Stilinski and Peter. This trio is great. But I’d like to know why they haven’t informed Scott or Stiles about this evil ax murderer. Also why doesn’t Scott or Stiles call Derek when dealing with the Liam problem? Derek usually has the answer and he’s got enough brawn to save the day, same with Peter. Scott usually ends up asking Peter for help so why not now. Oh that’s right he doesn’t think, he just kills.
Now I’d like to end with Scott. He’s great and caring but I think he forgets he’s a werewolf. The entire time when he’s trying to figure out how to deal with Liam I was screaming “YOU ARE AN ALPHA, GROWL DAMNIT!” Nope he just lets Liam run wild, and then once he’s reminded by his dead first love’s wise father that he needs to use his own words I thought okay maybe now he’ll growl, nope just flashes his eyes. Can MTV not afford to put wolf make up on him or something? Is it because he still worries about controlling himself during the full moon? At least explain it!
Anyways that’s my rant about Teen Wolf, stay tuned for more. I’m a 21 year old that gets off on watching TV shows meant for teenagers :)
