Just in case we weren’t already feeling sad enough that this is the last season of Teen Wolf, they go ahead and crush it with the fantastic winter finale “Riders on the Storm.” Way to cap off what has been a pretty amazing season, Teen Wolf. There was action, gore, romance, nostalgia, humor, and some of the hardcore emotional bromance that we love in Teen Wolf. What we’re trying to say is that “Riders on the Storm” was good … real good.
In “Memory Found,” we find that most of Beacon Hills has been trapped in train station oblivion by those pesky Ghost Riders. Scott is determined to remember Stiles so he can bring everyone back. It’s not entirely clear how recovering memories of Stiles has become the Holy Grail of Teen Wolf. If we can’t get the actual Dylan O’Brien on the Teen Wolf set due to his big deal movie career, we might as well settle for a clipshow of his emotional moments throughout the years. Why not? It’s not as if we’ve been rewatching these scenes on YouTube during the Stiles drought. Certainly not.
In “Blitzkrieg,” the Ghost Riders are conducting a sustained attack on the town of Beacon Hills. As most the town gets picked off, we start to wonder—is this how Teen Wolf is going to end? Will everyone eventually be cast into oblivion, or at least an oblivion-like train station? At first we think, “Oh, Lord, don’t let it end in a train station.” Then we realize that leaving Beacon Hills completely empty, except for a lone banshee living in Eichen House, would kind of be an amazing ending for the Teen Wolf series. And then they all lived as Ghost Riders forever … Continue reading
Who is the most “Heartless” in Teen Wolf? There are several potential candidates in Season 6, but “Heartless” appears to be the start of Theo’s redemption story. Can a stone-cold killer be redeemed? If he has a perfect smile and great abs, then maybe. After Liam’s attempt to show his alpha skills and take initiative, Scott finds himself involved with this unwanted ally once again. Continue reading
In “Ghosted” Teen Wolf introduces us to the creepy town of Canaan. While the seniors check out what appears to be an uninhabited community, the sophomores stir up trouble back n Beacon Hills. And it’s not just the teens taking drastic actions in “Ghosted.” Continue reading
Teen Wolf isn’t afraid of conflict. When you start with a great cast and bring in truly terrifying adversaries, the story almost tells itself. Almost. In “Relics” Lydia continues the search for Stiles, while Scott tries to protect everyone from the Ghost Riders. Though, ultimately, they both fail, they learn some valuable lessons along the way. Continue reading
When you watch a supernatural series for many years, you know there will be scary new creatures, deceptive characters, and interesting plot twists. Even so, it’s extra fun when you’re genuinely surprised. “Sundowning” gave us a gasp-worthy moment that tied this story back to last season. Teen Wolf certainly knows how to keep our attention. Continue reading
In “Superposition” Scott, Malia, and Lydia start to realize something isn’t quite right, that there are gaps in their memories. Teen Wolf gave us a powerful season premiere in “Memory Lost” and now we must see if these memories can be recovered. Teen Wolf is not known for having a slow narrative style, so the plot moves along quickly with Mason, Liam, Corey, and Dr. Deaton all lending a hand. “Superposition” begins the process of figuring out what pieces are missing, with the emotion and humor Teen Wolf is known for. Continue reading
Teen Wolf has had some pretty intense season premieres. The Season 6 premiere, “Memory Lost” may be it’s best. Teen Wolf is strongest when it’s grounded in the characters, the relationships between them, and the fact that they are high school teens. When you add a terrifying supernatural adversary into the mix, it makes the series that much more thrilling. In the final season of Teen Wolf, “Memory Lost” gives us a premiere that is funny, frightening, and emotionally heartbreaking. Continue reading
