I really thought Mama Argent would turn out not to be wolfing out, or something would prevent her death, but I guess not!

So glad to see Matt the creepy photographer guy being called out for being a creeper - and he's controlling the kanima! I'm assuming the swim team and Isaac's dad were somehow involved in the death of an older sibling of his?

OMG Stiles - he's vision of his dad being drunk and blaming him. It sounded like his mother died of a slow illness - wonder how Stiles manages to make this his fault? (of course, such things generally aren't rational)

Also, at what point did Stiles exchange contact details with the drag queens at the gay club?

Well, if Peter weren't dead, I'd have to say good on him for being the first person to give Lydia some answers? Perhaps the others could have been more concerned with that and less with ensuring her party was a success.

Thank you Derek for expositioning during the episode that Alphas can fall to Beta, and even Omega - here's hoping you don't become a full example. Shallow thought - I always liked it better when his eyes would flash bright blue in season 1, rather than the Alpha red. Not sure why it was such a struggle for him to control the betas - he growled Isaac into submission on his first full moon, and in several episodes has swatted them and Scott away like flies. Let alone how easily Lydia got to him (and how the hell did she drag his werewolf ass from the underground lair to the Hale house?)

Derek's been rather a shocker as Alpha, so if it weren't Peter taking it from him, I might think it was a good move. Oooh, I wonder if Peter still wants to bite Stiles?

While I'm nitpicking, I still enjoyed this episode, and can't wait for next week. With Peter back, it's kind of amazing that there's still 3 episodes to go...

ETA: almost forgot - during Lydia's dream at the beginning of the episode, where she goes from the shower to the football field, there's a woman crying/screaming in the stands, no cheering or staring like the others. Is that Laura Hale?

I continue to be baffled that this isn't a HUGE THING in fandom. I mean, it comes up, but that scene is *so* different from any of the others up to that point, it has to have meant *something*. I wonder what the writers meant for it to mean.

(Though I may have to stop watching the show if they keep up the "Sterek" teasing thing because I've been in fandom too long and I expect to be burned so it kind of leaves a bad taste about the show when there's teasing like that. Put up or shut up kind of, you know?)

I understand how it might, but for some reason, so far, this teasing is just entertaining me. Though they will have to be careful of a fannish backlash, I've seen a lot of fans online who 100% believe it will be happening.

I feel like I see that scene mentioned in a lot of stories, but I really would like to have it revisited on the show. But that might just be my Stiles-bias showing.

I'm just the kind of person who likes to know how things turn out before getting committed. I read the end of books first sometimes too. :)

I've seen it mentioned a few times, but it should be revisited on the show, I agree. And I still want an AU that springs off that point. I may have to figure out how to write it myself. Except I cannot picture what Stiles would be like as a werewolf. Except possibly worrying, if he was a bad guy. (I mean, the dude is really freaking smart. All that planning skill focused on evil? He'd have everyone convinced he was clearly doing the right thing.)

we were also shallow with "at least he gets to have the pretty blue eyes again now!"

I really would have like Mrs. Argent to have been locked up and maybe force the Argents to go to Stiles for a way she could control herself, but the way they dealt with it fits in with they way the family is written. :(

That makes more sense of an older sibling, since the swim team photo looks like Matt is actually in the photo. Center front.

Maybe stiles got numbers from when that guy bought him and Scott drinks? He kept the numbers as an ego boost for not getting Lydia?

I love that Peter is back! The actor is great.

I wonder if the spiked punch could hold a cure for being a werewolf, since Scott seemed to not change with the full moon and even was unable to really change when hallucinating Jackson with Alison.

And it raises the stakes with the show in general that she was bumped off, that it didn't turn out that she wasn't turned, and survived somehow.

A werewolf suppressant is an interesting concept, wolfsbane does seem like a remarkably multipurpose plot device :D

I do love Peter, and hope we get some interesting interaction between him and Stiles...

Her death could be a way to turn Alison against all werewolves, including Scott... They are a twisted family.

Yeah, didn't wolfsbane force Derek's sister's body to turn into a full wolf, after she was already dead... Then as two kinds of poison... a suppressant would seem to be a viable option.

I was so naughty at first, I was like, we get to see Uncle Peter's butt! But we didn't. :P Will Peter keep Stiles as a human pet? Oh... mind goes to the gutter again.
