Special K: Teen Wolf Recap: “Dude, everyone in here’s a dude!”
This week’s episode of Teen Wolf picked up right where last week’s left us. Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) is pissed-off and chasing down Jackson (Colton Haynes) in all his Kanima glory. However this little game of cat-and-mouse naturally ended up at the one place where you’d expect a shape-shifting reptile to hide from his furry pursuer. A gay club. I wonder if that’s meant to be a metaphor?
Bumping, grinding, drinks being brought, a bit of grrrr and arrg, a night out gay clubbing results with Scott (Tyler Posey) trying to subdue a cold, confused and of course naked Jackson. A usual night out clubbing if you ask me. Danny (Keahu Kahuanui) you know the gay character who really seems to do a great deal of nothing. Well this episode sees him grinding with a hottie only to result in being paralysed by the Kanima. Dramatic times.So Scott and Stiles (Dylan O’Brian) lock Jackson in the back of a paddy wagon. Wow Beacons Hills police force are on top of their guard don’t you think? Teenagers stealing cop cars? Just as well as it’s MTV or I’d be seriously doubting the believably realness of the show.Lol.
While all this is taking place daddy and grandpa Argent drive about in their car discussing the sudden reappearance of Derek Hale. Apparently none of the hunters have seen the new Alpha since the night that loopy aunt Kate met her demise. The Argents plan to some how lure Derek out using Isaac. However Daddy Argent is a little suspicious how Grandpa Argent can be so confident and safe around the Kanima. That’s right when Daddy Argent got thrown about by the Kanima, the reptile seemed all fine and dandy around the old guy. Grandpa Argent deflects suspicion by citing intuition and claiming to know what’s going on while popping a few more pills.Is anyone else suspicious of those pills he keeps taking?
We already know the Argent family is more then a little psychotic and Grandpa Argent has taken over the high school, we also learn that they have access to a few hundred surveillance cameras in town. Poor Allison has to endure yet another interrogation from her messed up grandfather. Where is child welfare when you need them? Not to make matters worse but her crazy ranga mother is now the substitute teacher who pretty much threatens murder when discussing who Allyson should take to the prom. Oh the dramas of high school.
Lydia (Holland Roden) is still kept out of the loop on pretty much everything. No wonder why the poor girl is going bat shit crazy. To top it off she almost loses her dog called Prada, only to have the pooch returned by her sexy mysterious neighbour (Michael Fjordbak) . Add a bit of flirtation, flower giving and potentially a new psycho in town.
Now let us not forget Jackson. He spends most of the episode handcuffed in the back of the paddy wagon. Scott tries to figure out why Jackson might have wanted to kill Danny at the club. Danny of course has no clue but mentions that video (which ended up showing Jackson going all distorted and morphing into the Kanima) which he saved on his tablet in his car. Of course when Scott goes to retrieve it, it’s gone. While Scott and Allison are getting cozy in the car, poor Jackson is upset. I suppose it’s not easy transforming into an ugly reptile that kills people and has no friends.
Jackson escapes the others are now left with facing the reality of another possible murderous rampage. Instead they find Jackson with his lawyer adopted daddy at the cop station and the shit is about to hit the fan. While this takes place Lydia translate the archaic Latin and Allison finds out that the Kanima isn’t seeking a friend but a master. Who’d have thought Lydia was a cheer-leading genius?
