The last ten episode premiere and things get going just as Scott, Malia, and Lydia are looking to leave....
First, I need to say how much it sucks that Dylan is a "Special Guest Star".I know that with the accident and the movies he is in, his time was limited, but I was hoping he could continue to be credited as a star of the show, particularly since he is one of the three remaining stars from the pilot. Without him, the show isn't nearly as good because it seems to get way too dark. Hopefully they can lighten things up a bit. That said, I did treasure the few moments we had with him in the end. The FBI has no idea what they're getting with him.
I hafta feel sorry for Scott, Malia, and Lydia. They are all ready to go and then they get drawn back in by the latest craziness. I loved that Malia and Scott were preparing their moms for their departure. I loved it even more when Melissa showed Scott those vials of herbs and what not she has. That was amusing as was the moment when she used the shock stick on him. Lydia's mom, on the other hand, is probably racking up frequent flyer miles to the land of denial. I get that her primary job is to keep the school going and safe, but given what has happened in Beacon Hills, being prepared is a good idea/
I feel sorry for Liam that Hayden left, but I can't say that I'll miss her. Sorry, but she was never my favorite character. It would have been nice to see her leave, but I guess that couldn't happen. All that said, it will be good for Liam to step up . Or it would be if Scott actually leaves. Apparently, when they released Stiles, something else escaped from the hunt as well. Something that revived a Hellhound that was imprisoned in Eichen House. Whatever that something is, it cannot be a good thing. Unfortunately, a Argent affiliated hunter, posing as the guidance counselor (what is it with people posing as guidance counselors anyway?), killed it. This cannot be a good thing, particularly considering the previews showing that Grandpa Argent appears to be back with a vengeance.
Speaking of Liam, he needs to get himself back under control again. Twice tonight, he nearly lost control. Once on the lacrosse field and once in the hospital. Luckily Scott was there (as the assistant coach!) for the first and Liam managed to run away in the hospital. Otherwise there could have been some very bad things going down.
Given the one kid in the guidance counselor's office, the students of BHHS are definitely starting to take notice of the events going on around them. They may not be able to explain everything, but they know that weird stuff is going on and they are scared of whatever it is. It would be great if the whole student body fought against whatever is coming, a la BtVS' "Graduation Day".
Derek is wanted for mass murder and Stiles knows about it. I'm wondering if this mass murder is actually the destruction of some bad beings or if he is being framed for something. My guess would be the second, but it is possible that it is the first. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Given the previews we will see Kate, Ethan (I think Ethan is the one still alive), Jackson, Grandpa Argent, Miss Blake, and Derek come back. I am curious about Miss Blake since Peter ripped her throat open, but maybe it is some sort of hallucination. Or maybe he thought he killed her but he didn't. Can't wait to see!
Until next week!
