Teen Wolf 2.05...



DANNY IS THE BEST. :D

It's actually kind of sickening how good looking Jackson is.

I thought that was Derek, but it was Erica. My hope for Erica is that she gets over her sudden head-swelling and becomes more like the person she was before wolfdom. I feel the same about Isaac. I can't help but think it's not that great writing to have them make such radical character changes.

I am beginning to realise all the ways in which Stiles is like his Dad and vice versa. ♥

Peter hallucination, eeep. Great use of music. Anyone else thinking Lydia is some kind of horcrux? Either that, or Alterna!Merlin's doing something to her. Also, how stupid are Finstock and Scott? That was clearly mirror writing.

Erm, isn't Stiles known for actually being incredibly smart but lacking in application? I must have missed the part where Harris thinks he's stupid.

See, this is a prime example of Isaac being all MWAHAHAHAHAAAAA, I AM A VILLAIN, which makes no real sense at all.

Lydia's not actually the kanima, is she?

I love Allison.

Poor Stiles, having to watch this. Aaaaaaand there's his revenge.

Hang on, I didn't notice this last week but... is this Kendra from Buffy?

It's the Browder!clone. OI, YOU, don't toy with Danny.

YAY DANNY. I love you for being nine hundred times smarter than everyone else barring Stiles and sometimes Lydia.

This camerawork is making me feel sick.

I was really hoping Boyd would be more like Scott; i.e, not that different now that he's wolfified. And that Scott would appeal to that, as opposed to being all 'i'm totes fast, lol'.

DOES ANYONE ELSE WANT TO TAKE DEREK BY THE SCRUFF OF THE NECK AND LECTURE HIM ABOUT, LIKE, THROWING STONES AND JUDGING LEST HE BE JUDGED? BECAUSE, DUDE.

Okay, why couldn't we have that that slightly more logical explanation before? Because I literally just thought Derek was being nothing but a douche, but at least he has some reasoning, sort of.

"Even Stiles calls her cold-blooded." Oh hai, there, gratuitous use of Derek mentioning Stiles for no other reason than a) him mentioning his boo, and b) hinting at either Stiles being such a sweetheart he thinks the best of people and will help them no matter what, or him being in love with her, which, how does Derek even know that?

And here is Derek being clueless again. (A huge part of the fic I seem to be writing is about how Derek really knows nothing about anything --- he's basically just paddling around in circles and can't figure out how to straighten.)

I feel like this scene would be easier to believe if it was acted by anyone other than the Tylers. Tyler P has got miles better, though.

I enjoy this show a lot when it gets ensembley.

EEEE. Oh man, that was awesome. Nice acting there from Colton.

This scene is boring me. I don't care about their relationship drama. It's even quite nicely acted, too, but, ech.

It's Jackson, really?

Allison is so the best. ♥ ♥ ♥ ...until she calls Erica 'bitch'. What is with this show?

Why does Derek look so amused? Also; this is kind of cute. But Derek is too stupid to function.

I'm not imagining someone actually grabbing Jackson before, am I? I'd thought it was Derek, but, clearly not.

Oh! Hahahahahaaaaaa. This show cracks me up.

DANNY IN THIS EPISODE WAS AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING

Seriously. Can I also just point how much I love the continuity porn of the Coach saying suggestive things about Scott and Danny? And how Scott just goes along with it and even pushes it himself because no-one in this show is all LOL NO HOMO about stuff? Which, speaking of, I also enjoyed Danny's reasoning for not taking a shot on Matt being that the guy was obsessed with Allison and not WOE IS ME HE IS STRAIGHT.

And that's just a tiny portion of my Danny feels~ this episode and word from the horses mouth (the actor) is that next week's episode is a big Danny episode.

DO YOU THINK THAT COULD BE BECAUSE JACKSON IS THE KANIMA AND THE LADY SAID THAT A KANIMA JUST WANTS A FRIEND AND DANNY IS JACKSON'S FRIEND AND THE KANIMA HAS FEEEEEEEEELINGS~ ABOUT THAT?

Okay. Now I'm done on Danny.

Genuinely didn't think it was going to be Jackson OR Lydia so I'm a little surprised that it was Jackson in the end. More questions, however: who altered the tape (I doubt it was Danny, as was one of the suggestions, b/c it be pretty stupid to offer to undo your own work), who was in the car, what will they do with Jackson and how sad is it that if the bite sometimes makes you into what you are inside it turned Jackson into a creature that doesn't want to be alone, Jesus Christ.

The rest of the Pack kids still behaving like vampires continues to sadden me. Derek clearly having no fucking idea what is going on any more entertains me. Derek actually acknowledging Scott's human pack? AMAZING. Derek knowing, for no apparent reason, about Stiles' feelings for Lydia? ALSO AMAZING.

Allison was a proper badass in this - clearly scared as hell in the house but still prepared to do what it took. AND SMART. Which, tbh, Allison rarely is (which is why she and Scott go well together) or certainly not in the way Lydia is. Bitch I am back and forth on - I think Allison had the right to call Erica that given Erica's posturing and a sort of enjoy the double-meaning along the wolf lines. (I don't like the word in general but I'm a little less harsh on it when it's female to female in usage)

In conclusion: don't think I didn't notice the casual reference to writing a fic. I LOOK FORWARDS TO THIS WITH GREAT INTEREST.

I, too, love that Scott's perfectly happy to continue the innuendo around himself and Danny.

DO YOU THINK THAT COULD BE BECAUSE JACKSON IS THE KANIMA AND THE LADY SAID THAT A KANIMA JUST WANTS A FRIEND AND DANNY IS JACKSON'S FRIEND AND THE KANIMA HAS FEEEEEEEEELINGS~ ABOUT THAT?

Oooooh. At first I was going to be 'no, I don't think it's Danny', and then I thought about the fact Danny may have seen the video --- AND he'd be smart enough to wear gloves, so as not to get accidentally venomised. So, maybe? I mean, I was labouring under the assumption it was the other kanima that I am convinced exists. The one that's actually killing people. Because, for some reason, I don't believe Jackson capable of killing like that. Also, Jackson was paralysed by the venom, so I feel like it was probably another kanima's venom.

My other theories on the person are, of course, the Browder!clone, and Grandpappy Tigh Argent.

And, yeah. Derek has no clue. Not even a little. Like, I just --- I seriously doubt he actually wants Erica and Issac to go around so obviously. Unless he does? Unless I am skewed as to who Derek actually is because he's constantly trying to con Scott? I like his ambiguity and us not knowing whether to trust him, do not get me wrong. But there's a difference between Derek being sort of a d-bag, and definitely misguided, than him just being a really stupid villain. I've felt like this series he's mostly just been a stupid villain.

My fic that I am kind of writing? Is Stiles/Derek. The ship I say I don't ship (mostly because of episodes like this one where the only connection there was Derek knowing Stiles' love for Lydia.) My fic is also basically one big joke. \o/

Hmm. I was more thinking that Jackson!Kanima is going to follow Danny around because Danny is his friend and Pack Scott and Pack Derek are going to have to follow Danny around. YES. I AM NOW THE PERSON WHO SPECULATES ON FUTURE EPISODES.

The obvious candidate to the adorable Tumblr legions is the chemistry teacher. Mostly because he was mean to Stiles? Because apparently that would lead to you trying to kill Stiles? I don't actually know where the 'kanima is trying to kill Stiles' thing came from, myself, because it had the perfect opportunity and didn't take it.

SO. If there's two kanimas, which is suggested by the end this episode, is it a) the one who committed all the murders or b) did Jackson commit at least one of them? WHY AM I TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT, I DON'T EVEN DO THIS TO TRUE BLOOD.

This is Teen Wolf, though, and they always spend a lot of time convincing you that one person is evil (like Derek in the first season) only to rug pull. So I think the 2nd kanima theory IS likely and therefore Jackson probably isn't killing because IDK if they'd go that direction with a main character?

Yeah. The Derek stuff is a little sadfacing, tbh, because the writing is uneven as hell on him. Although, well, I suppose you could see it this way: he behaves very differently in front of Scott & Co (and Boyd, interestingly) than he does in front of Erica & Isaac. So either he's playing a con, which I actually think he wouldn't because even though Scott is basically a box of rocks with hair on Stiles is smart enough to catch it and he knows that, or he's putting it on for one group. I think it's Isaac & Erica. I have a feeling that he recruited Boyd in a very different way to those two (I wish we'd get to find out more about Boyd) perhaps more upfront, particularly based on Boyd's "I want to be like you" line, whereas with them he was the seductive powerful Alpha and that gave them an idea of who he is/how he behaves.

Um. I swear I haven't even been thinking about this! (But apparently my subconscious has...)

I am still excited about your fic! May have ended up in a HUGE sprawling twitterfic thing with a friend that involved domestic pack behaviour and Derek going to Stiles' to get some peace and quiet and there were jokes and things and signs and Scott being jealous of their friendship/concerned Derek is taking advantage of Stiles but they're NOT dating and then much later, when Stiles is older, it turns out they kinda are? Anyway. It's something that will probably become fic eventually. Longfic, though, so don't hold your breath n'all. :D \o/

Oh, Jen. I love the fact we both profess to not shipping Stiles/Derek and then somehow apparently do anyway. :D :D :D I will not hold my breath, but I like the idea of fic involving pack dynamics.

Harris is a total jackass, but I don't think he's the kanima. I mean, sure, Einstein quote --- but I don't think so. He was a fake-out from the first series. Theeeen again, that's something I might do.

The writing is either completely uneven on Derek for stupidity's sake, or like you allude to --- shenanigans. I kind of like that the quality of this show is that it could easy be either/or/and.

Dude. My main Teen Wolf ship is Derek/My Bed so, y'know, vaguely committing to something Derek/Stiles related is almost unexpected. :D (On the record: I did come up with a bunch of Danny ideas first. This one just happened by osmosis w/ a friend over twitter.)

Yeah. I think the Einstein bumper sticker was a fake out. But that's the thing about this show, you sort of never really know what's happening until does.

Yes! That's it, really, and why I get so annoyed when people write the show off as stupid/rubbish. Because it's actually genuinely well written with a lot of thought put into everything. Any show where apparently bad writing turns out to have been supported by something and thus makes sense is, to me, a good show.
