yo, here be massive spoilers for the mid-season finale of Teen Wolf that leaked.

well, that was an appropriate way to end this season/half-season/whatever. that is, it had some good moments, but overall, was a load of steaming crap.

Let's see - the female villains have to die (Kali (though seriously, we've seen werewolves recover from worse, so who knows) and Jennifer) while the male villains (Deucalion and the Wonder Twins) get to survive, and some are even embraced into the fold. FUCK YOU JEFF DAVIS. Oh, that's right, even fucking Grandpa Argent is still alive. And Peter.

I was only glad to see the twins survive in that they died really easily for supercharged alphas. Though more importantly, did the Jeep survive??? Wow, Stiles got fuckall to do in this episode, apart from show up with a bat. That opening where it established all 3 of them being near the tree stump in the pilot was done ok, but also kind of a waste of time.

Oh joy, Lydia's best apparently is her screaming. What a thing to reduce her to narratively. and fuck Jeff Davis again - in last week's ep, the actors had to remind him of Lydia and Peter's traumatic history to get even any sort of reaction to them meeting, and the show fucking put comedy music underneath it. RAGE.

I did like Alison taking charge of Argent family business and giving them a new Code to follow - we might finally see the matriarchal family we were promised but not really shown. Alison's stuff this season has been among the least rage-inducing, actually. Along with Stiles and Lydia being mystery solving bros.

Is every season going to end with Scott having a secret plan (to fight inflation)? Cause that's some lazy ass storytelling.

How did Scott being an alpha enable him to break the circle/become an Alpha by breaking the circle? even by Teen Wolf standards, THIS MAKES NO SENSE.

I was glad to see Derek get his pretty blue eyes back. But now he and Cora are two Alpha-less betas (does that make them omegas) off wandering. Better than Scott being his Alpha though. Where the fuck was Scott-the-great-and-powerful-and-good-and-special when Derek was fighting with Jennifer and losing? I really don't like the whole Scott is super special and destined to become a magic Alpha plot, if you can't tell. The fact that he's never been called out narratively for his sketchy/dubious behaviour and choices (while everything is Derek's fault and he is nothing but punished) pisses me off.

And still one of the things I'm maddest about - WHY WAS CORA WRITTEN INTO THIS SEASON? HOW DID HER PRESENCE CHANGE ANYTHING OR DEVELOP ANY STORYLINES OR PROMPT CHARACTER GROWTH? Jeff skipped showing us any interesting/emotional reunion scenes between the siblings, and never answered onscreen how she survived the fire or where the fuck shes been. I spent the entire season waiting for there to be a point, maybe for her to be a secret ally to Alpha pack or something, and nothing.

God, I hope Tyler Hoechlin could get a job on Arrow and not come back to this show. Especially since I don't know if I'm interested in hatewatching season 3B, which is what I'm pretty much reduced to with this show.

At this point, I kind of want Peter Hale to kill many people, before being taken down by Lydia (without screaming). I mean, that's what I've wanted all this season, but now I want him to kill of some other bad guys first.

YES! To all of this! This ep was just one big ball of frustration! So much annoyness!

And also, a glaring lack of Stile, especially resolution to all the stuff with him and his dad. We get this short bit with Alison and her dad, same with Scott and his, where was a little with Stiles and his dad?! Grrrr!

Also, minor pet peeve really, in the grand scheme of all the WTFuckery but they were in the frozen baths...for 16 hours? And um ,what, you just LEFT them there?! Did you think they were dead?! Was there some magic keeping you from them, what?! Also, didn't last ep you say they were gonna be replacement sacrifices, and now they were just using the ritual to find them? C'mon, Jeff, continuity! You wrote both these eps, you can try just a LITTLE!!

*pants* GRR!!!

Blarg, okay better now...reallllly :---p Just had to get that off my chest ^__-

I know, there was so much to rant about I didn't even get around to the ridiculously long icebaths! Or the lack of consequences from Alison kicking FBI ass (even tho she was awesome).

CAN WE STRIP THE CAST DOWN TO JUST THE MCCALL, STILINSKI AND ARGENT FAMILIES??? I care about SO FEW other people. Allison's plot was GREAT, the parent stuff was awesome, but the whole alpha pack shit was bananas. And the Hales....never met their potential.

WHY WOULD YOU LET DEUCALION GO? WHY NOT LET JENNIFER KILL HIM AND THEN WORRY ABOUT TAKING HER OUT? like, I do NOT understand their bad guy priorities AT ALL. YO, HE'S THE REASON ERIC AND BOYD ARE DEAD. REMEMBER THEM? Cora could've been so interesting! and yeah, no. and Peter? Again?

also seriously, why did Isaac get to be the only fail beta to survive the season? boooooo

Don't forget, Jackson also got to survive offscreen while Boyd and Erica are dead! How much better would happy pack member montage been if we could replace twins with Boyd and Erica? :(

Derek was one of my faves, but I hated his new backstory and am so sick of his endless epic manpain, and any interesting stuff (like reuniting with Cora or actually becoming a beta again) happening offscreen.
