Amidst a Teen Wolf episode filled with more questions, we finally got some answers about what is going on with Lydia (and a few more questions there, too). The cute neighbor boy was indeed a figment of Lydia’s imagination, placed there by Peter, who has an inextricable hold over Lydia, even from beyond the grave. But we do now know that Lydia is indeed immune for some reason (I still want to know why) and is still of use to Peter. I’m assuming that she’s somehow going to be able to raise Peter from the dead with that flower, and that it’s likely going to happen at the most inconvenient time for everyone. That’s what they get for leaving her out of the loop.
All of Lydia’s scenes were highlights in “Restraint,” from the creepy way the plot unfolded to the horror-film-like was it was all presented. It matched Supernatural in the mood-creating department, and that’s saying a lot. Why am I still shocked when things in Teen Wolf are very well done? At some point I’ll have to issue a formal apology, but for now, I’ll just shout out a thanks for the most addicting summer programming out there, and if in the future you could air more than one new episode a week, I think we’d all benefit.
Speaking of creepy, Jackson is skeeving me out, with the snake swallowing and release through his eyeball, and his mood swings are worse than Kim Kardashian’s PMS. Between the naked threats to Alison and the charming message on the blackboard, he’s seriously not in control. Some of the pieces are starting to fall into place, and I’m sure Jackson’s birth parents are going to factor in somehow. They were murdered and Jackson will need vengeance before he can become a werewolf. So how will Isaac’s father and the mechanic figure into it? Did the mechanic work on the car? What I can’t figure out is why the master would want these people dead, because that’s what the translation is intimating, that the Kanima will kill whoever the master wants dead.
This and that:
