Teen Wolf 3×08: Visionary
After the reveal of Scott’s soon to be true Alpha werewolf status, Teen Wolf took it down a notch (a few to be honest) and presented it’s first flashback episode. Peter and Gerard got the chance to share their version of events on Derek’s life as a teenager and Deucalion’s vision for the future. Like I said, it’s their version of events, which made the entire episode very confusing.
+ Aww teenage-Derek and his girlfriend were very adorable together. It was a stupid move to change her.
+ If Once Upon A Time ever needs a teenage Snow, they should call Madison McLaughlin. She looked stunning on Teen Wolf!
+ Scott told Gerard that he’s an ass that can’t be trusted, straight to his face. Go Scott!
+ Cora and Stiles made a nice duo this episode. But please don’t set them up, okay? Stiles is meant to be with Lydia.
+ I really like that Deaton and Ms. Morrell are emissaries (advisors). Unfortunately Ms. Morrell is working for the wrong team at the moment. (I also liked how Stiles freaked out about that fact, because he told her some intimate details when he visited her guidance counseling office).
+/- Was Deucalion really a good guy? It’s so hard to imagine… but Gerard clearly set him up.
+/- We saw Derek’s mother! She is apparently the big bad werewolf (joking, I mean the leader). Glad the writers decided to create another powerful female. But the whole shapeshifter thing seemed kind of lame. I wasn’t really terrified by her fluffy wolf shape.
– Scott’s healing powers creep me out! I was a little afraid that he might get himself ill if he helps out Gerard too long.
– I’m not sure if these stories needed a complete episode to be told. There wasn’t much new information and they could have easily used a few minutes of a normal episode.
– No Isaac and no Lydia, enough said.
After this intermezzo (and the info on Dr. Deaton and Ms. Morrell) I look forward to what the next episode will bring. – 7
Teen Wolf 3×08 quotes
Peter (talking about Derek as a teenager): “A lot like Scott, actually. A lot like most teenagers… unbearably romantic, profoundly narcissistic, tolerable really only to other teenagers.”
Gerard: “Deucalion may have lost his eyes, but he’s not always blind.”
Stiles: “Okay, that was frustratingly vague.”
Stiles: “Man, you guys really take that revenge thing to, like, a whole new level, don’t you?”
Cora: “I don’t get it. What does this have to do with Derek?” Peter: “Everything. It’s never just a single moment. It’s a confluence of events.”
Young Peter Hale: “But that one over there… she’s perfect for you. And perfect combinations are rare in an imperfect world.”
Gerard: “Know thy enemy, Allison. The older wolves had a relationship with the druids. They called them emissaries.”
Dr. Deaton: “Do you know the story of the scorpion and the frog?[…] When the scorpion asked the frog to carry him across the river, the frog said ‘how do I know you won’t sting me?’ The scorpion replied ‘why would I do that? Then we’d both drown.’ So the frog agreed. Halfway across the river, the scorpion stung the frog. When the frog asked him why he did it, since now they would both die, the scorpion replied ‘It’s my nature.’ Your faith in humanity may not matter if you underestimate Gerard’s nature.”
Gerard: “As William Blake said ‘Any sinister person who means to be your enemy always start by trying to become your friend.'”
Cora: “What’s this look on your face?” Stiles: “What look?” Cora: “The kind of look that makes me want to punch you.” Stiles: “Oh, my God. You are so Derek’s sister. I forgot.” Cora: “Well, what is with the look?” Stiles: “I just don’t believe him.”
