Teen Wolf Liveblog (2.04)

Who else thinks this guy is a reformed Hunter? (How bad is it that I still don't know this guy's name?)

This is awesomely gruesome :D :D :D

Snarky Stiles is such an arsehole.


This is pretty great, hahahaha.

Colonel Tigh Granpappy is so creepy.

The long-running gag of Stiles' poor Jeep.

... the whole thing was reptilian, Stiles. I really liked the creature make-up.

Derek, this is kind of what you get for biting such emotionally troubled teens, you douche.

Ewwww. No one wants that. I was so hoping they wouldn't go down this route with Erica. Oh good, they're not. Though if Derek is thinking of hooking Erica up with Scott, he's a complete dumbass. I bet a million Stiles/Derek shippers totally thought Derek was going to say "Because I have someone else in mind. For MEEEEEEE!"

With respect, Derek, you're a terrible fucking teacher.

Colin Morgan lookalike!

GUYS. THIS SCENE IS ADORABLE. I TOTALLY THOUGHT STILES MEANT IT. SCOTT'S GOOFY GRINNING. I looooove Allison, but my friendship kink means that of all the ships I could have for this show, apart from Scott/Allison, this is the one I really like.

I actually really love Lydia, you guys.

OH MY GOD is this episode gay. They're really just... I don't want to say milking it, because, ew, connotations. But they are. (Danny is the best.)

JACKSON. Now, I personally think that camera-guy made the edit himself, but, hmmm.

I really think this guy looks like Ben Browder. So. Clearly, cylons.

N'awwwwwww, Stiiiiiiiiiles!

And the long-running gag of Stiles never actually getting to play first line. :(

... Derek wanted Erica to seduce Stiles? Really? That's kind of --- huh.

Oh, maybe not. I love Stiles's absolute resignation there.


It is pretty amusing that all it takes is a look.

N'awww, Derek's totally trying to protect Stiles again. It's kind of sweet. But Stiles won't leave him, because of ~reasons~ and now there's groping! Ooh, underwater groping! Why am I suddenly reminded of buddy breathing?

But, actually, at the very best they're frenemies, and at worst they hate one another. I can see why people ship them aesthetically, but their dynamic needs to become a little warmer before I could ship them in the same way. I feel like I'd always want to have a Stiles and a Derek who are a step to the left of who they currently are. And that's not generally how I ship. [/thoughts on yaoi]

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA. THIS SHOW. It's totally moments like this that made me enjoy Teen Wolf.

Literal two hours, or figurative? Because, if literal, what the hell have they been talking about all that time?

Epic case in earlier point: the complete and utter lack of trust between Stiles and Derek :( :( :( Stiles is gonna have some 'splainin' to do.

This creature is the camera-guy who looks like Ben Browder, isn't it?

Scott, you really need to be a better friend. It kinda serves you right, though, Stiles. Okay, this is better. You could have let Derek die. You didn't. Maybe there's hope for you two crazy kids yet?

Derek's making another epic mistake.

... or not. Colonel Tigh Granpappy is truly crazycakes. Like daughter like father.

This episode was a lot better than the last. It was paced better, it made more sense and it had the requisite amounts of ho and foe yay.

I may have just implied on Twitter that this show is the gayest thing since Top Gun. So many moments and they writers clearly know exactly what they're doing.

It was so nice to have something like proper Derek back! is my main feeling about this episode. Putting on a writing hat for the moment - Derek is his most likeable/enjoyable when he's having to rely on someone like Stiles, someone normal, because he gets to be frustrated, sarcastic and fun. It's not by accident that the Stiles/Derek scenes in the first season were amongst the funniest/most entertaining. I still say that last week's ep was totally out of character unless they're suggesting being Alpha is messing him up.

The trust notes in this episode were super interesting, I think. Allison and Grandpa Tigh sets it up - about trust and choices. Derek pointing out that Stiles doesn't trust him = interesting because it tells us Derek thinks about Stiles (and, I suspect, Scott) and probably of ways he can gain his trust. And Scott hits it again, what we already know, that whole lot of them have to trust each other if they want to survive the other stuff out there.

It's interesting to me that even though Derek doesn't trust Stiles his first instinct in any situation is to protect him, which belies at least a liking of him that he doesn't want to admit (in non-shipping talk). The prison cell is the obvious one but this one was almost more interesting, in a way, because one of Derek's own pack got knocked over and Derek didn't do anything about it. FASCINATING. He really is the worst to be an Alpha, tbh, because he has no idea how to be one and his first instinct is nearly always to protect the nearest human. Which is always Stiles.

I don't even know what I'm saying any more. HOW DOES THIS SHOW DO IT, LOZ? IT'S SO INTERESTING.

(And on a shallow note - lovely, wet Derek at the end looking at Scott, and with Stiles behind him, was an excellent image.)

I agree totally with your opinions on Derek. And I think a lot of it is to do with the difference between confidence and arrogance? S1 Derek is usually either completely clueless or relatively confident, whereas in 2.03, he was just arrogant.

The trust stuff was totally interesting, because I did find myself thinking that Derek made it sound like "you trust me because you have to" (uh, kinda wrong there, Derek), whereas he probably wants it to be "you trust me because I am worthy of that trust". I mean, the number of times he protects Stiles do lead to the suggestion he is not so much with the hating.

Aaaand this is why, despite all my protests, I think I do kind of ship them. Because I can step to the left, I'm just lazy. (It is probably a worry that the main problem I have with shipping this ship outright isn't 'Derek would never go for Stiles', it's 'but Stiles doesn't trust Derek', ahahaha.)

I, uh, I think I find Tyler H's face really unfortunate?
