Teen Wolf Episode 11
This week brought another episode of Teen Wolf and Renee and Sparky sat down to have a snarky chat about it. On the whole it was of the good – but there's waaay more teen angst – it felt like they were making up for the last episode. We're not happy about the treatment of the gay Maris, Danny who only ever appears on screen to be useful to Scott and Stiles – and every time he's played for some comic relief. This week went above and beyond by using him and making a joke while playing on the idea of a teacher yelling at a gay student for bringing a same-sex date to the school dance.
The villain(s) are still really scary and well done – and we want them all to be eaten. And, take not True Blood, actual CGI!
Sparky: Derek's captured - vintage electro torture?
y'know the Alpha's side is seeing more and more the good side
Renee: I have to agree with you there
She called him just another damn animal.
Sparky: yup, and she handles him like meat
Renee I want Derek to eat her.
Sparky: oh please, tell me that "you are a powerful woman" is not going to be used as a reason why Allison would tolerate torture
Renee Of course how else can she be empowered.
Sparky: She becomes empowered by becoming inhuman and brutal!
The Police chief is that susceptible to tears?
"how will it make you feel better" it will because otherwise you refused to writer her a ticket because she's a weak little flower sobbing and crying
Renee Oooh Alison has got her weapons on.
Sparky: she's becoming strong by embracing violence. Would be good if she had a better target methinks
Renee I hope that they explain the vet now
Sparky: I hope so.
And I wish one side would withold the creepy ridiculous threat and violence all the time. A pox on both their houses
Vet sounds vaguely bad ass
Renee Yeah the vet stepped into the alpha and showed no fear
Sparky: Daaaamn I am officially impressed
He just out bad-assed everyone
Renee Scott can't afford a new phone...I guess that is the class difference between him and jackson
Sparky: Kinda. Still doesn't explain the huge echoing house.
Renee I agree with you there
Sparky: Now the parents are getting angst
I really want this woman to be eaten
Oooh chest and bondage! (yes I went there)
Renee Look at those eyes sexay
Ok this woman needs to be eaten.
Renee Wait new bad guy torturer
Sparky:: Oooh look, more romantic stalking! nothing says true love like your boyfriend watching you every moment - especially when asleep and vulnerable
Heh, he fell amused
Renee Just took a page from Twilight
Sparky:I wish Edward Cullen had fallen.
Damn, I thought Jackson would have had some level of redemption
But again note them managing Allison
All hail Stiles
Renee Yeah Stiles told him
Sparky: There's motivation for you! :) ABOUT TIME he unleashed some werewolf on Jackson
Renee Well Jackson needed to know who he was dealing with and maybe now he will think twice about threatening a werewolf
Sparky: Oh gods "never frown, someone could fall in love with your smile" the worst ever saying
Oh not more highschool drama
Renee Oooh Alpha in her mirror
Sparky: Intrusive? noooo... damn stalky
Why is she still there? call security! Mace him. Knee to the balls, come on woman!
Renee She is in a public place why not just tell him to leave forcefully
Sparky: Instead of just standing there and being a rabbit
Damn, they still haven't eaten her.
They're going to draw parallels between her and Allison & Scott.
When did she go there, what kind of logical leap did she make? Intuition
Renee And she has figured out that Scott is the werewolf
It does not make sense that leap at all
Sparky: yup, psychic leap. Just ebcause Derek fell for her, why would that mean Allison has fallen for the other werewolf? this is logic?
Renee On Teen Wolf it counts as logic
Sparky: oooooooh teeen angst. Mother give him a slap. It's called a high school crush
7:50 PM me: Please she is not smart enough to realize that sewing that rip is going to make it hold
Sparky: oh could this get more saccharine?
Pass the vomit bag
So she's set him up for his clothes to rip mid dance. Y'know everyone needs a horrendously embarrassing moment at school, right?
Oh Jackson, you know how to make someone special don't you?
Renee If he is going to be sipping from that bottle all night, she cannot drive him with him
Sparky:: who needs werewolves to kill you when you have drunk drivers?
Renee Who wears Hugo Boss?
Sparky:: pretentious older men. I'm more an armani guy myself
How did this alpha even get in? Do they often let random men crash teen dances in the US?
Renee Yeah it's pretty easy to crash a dance or at least it was when I was a kid
Sparky:: we must be more paranoid over here - unknown unattended men are demonscarymonsters it is known!
Wow the guys here really know how to flatter ladies and make them feel special
Renee I know get up off your pretty little ass and dance
Sparky:: Still it's nice to have Lydia appreciated for her mind.
oh. DO NOT!
DO NOT DO THIS
Renee Great ow he is dancing with Meris
Sparky: oh my gods, stop this.
I cannot believe they went there. Especially considering how many teens HAVE gone through crap because they couldn't bring a partner to the dance. They make it look like a teacher is angry at 2 men dancing together, at a school dance. And they use it as comic relief?
Renee He just used him and that was disgusting
Sparky: Not. Impressed.
Oooh Jackson may be eaten now.
Renee Jackson is as staggering drunk as I predicted he would be and now the mimbo is going into the forest
Sparky: Of course! Horror movie survival strategy - go off alone to dark scary places!
Oh. Ok, he could be shot. Shot's good. I'd prefer eaten but I'm flexible, the werewolf hunters can shoot him
Pass the vomit bag. More saccharine teen drama
Jackson's taking a promise from the hunters with big guns and accepting phrases like "we'll take care of him" uh-huh
Behold the power of magic saccharine words on girls! Allison's all googly now.
Renee Just like mommy said
Sparky: Are all these teens going out for a midnight stroll alone? Is it some kind of horror School convention - every teen must make themselves a perfect target for a serial killer at least once?!
Scary Alpha! that was well done. There, True Blood take note - CGI
Renee They have done a really good job with the Alpha, I hope HBO is taking notes
Sparky: Do you think the werewolf hunters know allison is there?
Renee I don't think that they do but I wonder if Scott is going to blame Allison
Sparky: THE BIG REVEAL!!!!! DRAMATIC MUSIC TIME! ALLISON SEES WEREWOLF SCOTT!
Renee The best part of that episode was the reveal if ask me
Sparky: I don't think they knew, her dad didn't want to tell Allison
The reveal and the alpha threats
The rest was a bit... teen drama-y. Not a lot happened
Renee I was going to say that it was almost worth all of the angst.
Sparky: yeah I think so - I still enjoyed it, butit sdid feel a bit like I was hanging around waiting for the good stuff
Renee I know and they didn't really explain the vet
