As a hardcore stydia fan who’s not insane, I’d like to say that last episode sucked. Malydia was on full blast and lydia fucking left malia just bcs she could ‘feel’ stiles. That sucked balls. After that there were no stalia reunion. I didn’t like the romance but seriously? No reunion for two dear friends? And they wrote malia just walking out the classroom, not even a slight look that says “thank God you’re back stiles” or at least a “glad you’re back”?? Like. She was a wreck when he was gone and teen wolf wrote her walking out just like that??? What the hell. Stydia isn’t fan service, the way they’re writing it is, ignoring stalia altogether IS FANSERVICE WTF they fucking ruined stydia. And wth happened to Theo? Is Scott gonna acknowledge the fact that Theo didn’t back out in fighting, that he helped save Liam more than twice sacrificing himself, and came to the woods to help Scott even when he didn’t need to? Please do not tell me Theo’s gonna vanish like Isaac, ignoring the potential of a good pack member. And that chrelissa kiss was so weird I mean they’re cute but him shooting a ghost rider and her saying “that was so hot”? It’s like a 12 year old wrote the scene. I also hated that they made stydia so anti stalia that they weren’t even with Scott at the final showdown. The scene with stiles’ mom was so unnecessary it was stupid. They are Scott’s pack, the original pack, they should’ve been there with Malia, Peter, and Theo but nooo a stydia scene was more important. Fuck that. I love stydia but this season was shit, I didn’t want my favorite ship to be trash.
Me being dragged through the last half of this episode:
Do you ever just want to take back 41 minutes of your life?
Lmao why did Peter do that little half-jog to
run over and push Malia towards Lydia? Like?? Why couldn’t she move on her own,
it’s just her arm that’s hurt? No reason she should be immobile? And I know she pushed Lydia out of the way, but in
the last shot, Lydia was still right next to her? And what was the point, even?
Like Lydia can do shit to protect her?
And Peter just roundhouse kicked a ghost riders
and now suddenly it does have a corporeal form. What the fuck.
Did he just put a ghost rider into a headlock?
And now he’s yelling for Malia to go. Jesus
fucking Christ. And only after that do Malia and Lydia think to move? K haha.
Who fucking choreographed this scene? I want a name.
Twice in one episode. That makes how many times this season? Are we supposed to be impressed with Shelley’s weird whine/grunt coupled with Facial Expression #2 of 2?
And Lydia kept running. Ah, so this was all a
ploy to set stydia up and get Malia out of the way. Go figure.
And Lydia definitely just sensed something. I’m
gonna need some hard rules on how this banshee thing is supposed to work
because they literally just make up her abilities as they go and they change it like every other episode.
And now Scott is trapped between the ghost
riders. So he can’t be with Stiles. Boy, they’ve had to go some lengths to
separate the characters just so Stiles and Lydia can be alone. You’d think they
would realize that if you have to force a moment so hard, maybe it doesn’t fit,
but apparently not…
Posey has some real wild arm movements when he runs
haha. That right arm looked like it was trying to fly off his body just to escape this scene. I don’t blame it.
Man, they don’t even try to be subtle with shoving
Mason into Stiles’ role haha.
Y’know, I’d rather be watching
the forced stydia and the utter lack of romantic chemistry between Holland and Dylan than watching any of these three
Oh my god:
What the fuck are you even doing,
Why does Stiles keep ending up in the locker room? Like, I get that they’re being spit out other places, but why does he keep ending up in the same one? Unless he’s just trying to use the same door over and over again like a moron, this doesn’t make sense. And I cannot be the only one thinking of that episode of Spongebob where they keep trying to jump off the Dutchman’s ship and it doesn’t work?
How do we always end up here?
…did…did he just walk into the barrel of that
And Lydia magically saves him.
And if she has this power, why not whip it out, say, 2 minutes ago when
her, Malia, and Peter were being attacked?
Holland is always doing this thing with her lip:
And it just
fucking bothers me.
Here come the stydia.
“LYDIA: I didn’t say it back.”
Well, that happened a lot quicker than I
anticipated haha. There wasn’t even any build-up to that kiss? They just automatically slammed
their faces together and I can’t stop laughing
I feel ya:
I cannot be the only one finding this scene uncomfortable. The lack of romantic chemistry is actually making this physically hard to watch.
How am I supposed to even focus on this kiss and not the fact that Stiles just straight up tried to
die like 15 seconds ago??????? Like what is up with teen wolf and terrible romantic timing???? First
kiss: Lydia stops his panic attack. Second kiss: she saves him from literally WALKING INTO A GUN?????
This part was cute, though:
I am laughing so fucking hard at this Chris/Melissa
scene. Chris tells her to get back, he barely touches her
and she just
lmao where’d she go
Did he just shoot the ghost rider with his own
I suppose it was only a matter of time before
this season involved a full-on duel:
complete with spur sounds, music, and
twitchy trigger fingers and everything. Teen Wolf, you really don’t do shit by
halves do you haha
I mean, I knew it was coming because
it’s not like Teen Wolf was at all subtle in the way they forced these two together this
season, but yo…no. This is weird, isn’t it? I’m not the only one who thinks this is weird? Like her son was in love
with his daughter? His dead daughter? Has Allison even been mentioned this
“CHRIS: What was the for?” “MELISSA: That was so hot.”
I feel like I’m watching my parents make-out.
“SCOTT: Step back from the diverter - or I’ll make you
step back.” How did Posey say that with a straight fucking face
“NAZI: Now that’s a German way of doing things.” Who wrote that haha.
“NAZI: You would have made an excellent nazi youth.”
How to Destroy Your Main Character in 10 Words or Less: A Lesson Brought to you by Teen Wolf
I had to pause the fucking episode. I can’t believe they actually said that.
Wow, I feel like we haven’t seen Scott shift
fully in a long time. When was the last time?
If there are so many ghost riders, why was there
always only 1 to 3 when they did something important? Like every time they went up against the pack, suddenly only a couple of them existed?
Oh my god, so now Stiles is hearing his mom’s voice?
Teen Wolf really does love their fanfiction, huh? I swear they just went on ao3, found the most prevalent tropes, and attempted to cram them all into ten episodes.
Oh, they’re actually showing Claudia. Why? Gotta show off
that A+ casting haha?
What the fuck?
They really can’t leave well
enough alone, can they?
Bro, the acting level between these four…
So, wait, Corey is cognizant enough to tell them
to save everyone, but seemed totally mindless while on the PA sytem?
Even in the face of insurmountable odds. I don’t know if it’s suicide or
stupidity.” “SCOTT: Maybe both.” Is this episode going to end with a sciles suicide
pact? What is happening
“NAZI: You of all people, Scott, should know what
happens to a lone wolf.” And a wild Theo appears
I have so many questions:
Is this really the
time for Theo’s redemption arc? Really?
How did Theo find him? Did he see
him at the school and follow him? Like, was he just hanging out on that balcony
this whole time, waiting for Scott to stroll on by lmao?
How long was Theo there before he piped up? Was
he just hiding behind a tree whispering to himself like, ‘not yet, Theo, not
yet. You need to wait for the appropriate dramatic moment to jump in here. Wait
for it…wait for it…lone wolf?…THUNDERCATS GO!”
Lone wolf? That term has
never meant a wolf that happens to be alone, it meant a wolf without a pack and
that’s not Scott.
How would Scott know what happens to
lone wolves? I mean, he saw one get bisected early on in the series, but he was
never an omega? He was never really close with omegas? Unless they’re taking about his semi-packless state in part of 5a?
Even if we consider that brief time in 5a as some huge less in being a lone wolf, how would lion nazi fuck know anything
Nazi knows the rest of the pack, doesn’t he? Like, he
knows Corey, Hayden, Mason, and Liam at the very least? He presumably knows they are Scott’s pack?
“MALIA: And Theo’s not in it. But I am.”
She is forever showing up just when I don’t think a scene can possibly get any dumber.
And, again, I have so many problems with this:
If I didn’t understand how Theo found Scott, I really don’t understand how Malia did?
Is this implying she defeated the ghost riders in the library? How? Why is she alone stronger than like an entire pack?
Shelley really doesn’t understand
inflection, does she? I have never heard a line delivered in such a deadpanned manner when it….wasn’t supposed
to be…And why does she literally have 1 facial expression? Looks like we’re playing ‘Guess That Emotion’ round #374894 with her.
Can Scott never get a moment to shine that isn’t handed over to fucking ?alia?
He’s the goddamn alpha, why do they always make him useless just to boost her
up? Like it is the last season, let the titular character have a fucking moment
to himself and stop forcing her mary sue ass in everywhere? Why are they still trying so hard to make her special? Unless they’re angling for a spin-off or they’re writing him off the show and
keeping her around.
Most importantly, where the fuck did she get this hideous coat and how the fuck did she have the time?
The only way this scene could get worse is if Peter shows up.
“PETER: I’m not in the pack, but no one likes a nazi.” How
in the everloving fuck is that a line that made it onto the screen
“NAZI: There are too many of us and too few of you.”
Please, do not bring the rest of the pack into this fight scene. I cannot
What is this show doing:
Having Stiles have to
pry Lydia from his undead not-mother’s chokehold? What the fuck? And I love
that this show is so hellbent of forcing stydia that even a moment with such
potential for drama and Stilinski family angst gets reduced to utter ridiculousness.
Every fucking time I convince myself that this show cannot possibly make Malia any fucking worse than she already is, they go and pull this shit:
Oh and way to halt this scene for a glamour shot of Shelley
How is this episode still fucking going? I feel like I’ve been watching it hours.
Oh my good fucking god:
this little shift in the tracks might
be the most anticlimactic thing this show has ever done.
And…like…where is the train going? 40 miles
east? Did they just fuck the next town over? Are they even gonna touch on this?
“MALIA: You missed your train.”
How long has Claudia been choking him haha? How is he still alive?
Ah sheriff did show up! Maybe we will actually be getting a touching family moment.
…nope. Lydia saves the
day instead. Because god fucking forbid this one moment is not about stydia.
Also, Lydia’s “fire again” comment?
What the fuck was up with Holland’s delivery?
And the whole building starts shaking and sheriff just puts his arm around Lydia. Never mind his kid that’s four feet away.
Bruh, I don’t even speak german and I know this
dude’s fucking it up haha.
That was even dumber than I thought
it was going to be.
Literally me as I watch watch each passing scene:
Yep, me too lmao:
And time for another segment of ‘Mason is suddenly a genius
because we could no longer afford Dylan O’Brien’
I think what drives me so crazy about this is
that Stiles was always treated like an idiot or like he was crazy or paranoid,
but Mason is the exact same way (except how he acquired any of the knowledge is never explained and completely illogical, but whatever) and he’s
actually getting recognized as smart? Like he’s actually getting the credit and respect that you would have thought Stiles would have received by this point but never did?
I was wandering when the Toyota ad would happen:
And it’s a 3-in-1 this time. Oh boy.
Sometimes little things just make me really hate this show.
Uh-oh we just hit the 5-minute countdown mark.
“Have a great summer, everyone.” How the fuck is
it summer? Did a time-jump just happen without being acknowledged? Did they fuck up their timeline again? Have the writers been out of high school for so many years that they don’t realize a semester isn’t only 3 months long?
Oh my good motherfucking god:
This outfit is a fucking mess:
She already wore that damn shirt this season. Only 6 episodes ago. You really can’t afford another shirt, Teen Wolf?
I really want the name of the person over there in the wardrobe department who is singlehandedly trying to bring back denim jackets and vests. Let it die.
If I ever see those ugly-ass camouflage distressed American flag shorts again, it will be much too soon. Why does she live in these? How many times have we seen them just this season? If you’re going to insist on putting her in these ridiculous shorts, maybe invest in a few more pairs?
If it’s cold enough to be layering two jackets, why the fuck is she in those tiny shorts?
Why is that denim jacket sleeve rolled up to reveal that striped hoodie sleeve? What kind of look is that?
And these colors? Pinkish shirt under red striped hoodie under denim vest over green camouflage shorts with black boots? @whoever made this choice:
I mean, this is quite possibly her worst look yet and that is really saying something considering there has been no end of terrible looks for her.
And Teen Wolf, don’t you dare for one second fucking think that you got away with giving Malia another one of Stiles’ jackets:
One more question: who in the fuck thought Shelley sitting like this:
was okay? I mean, if the goal of this scene was to get a vulgar crotch-shot that made her thighs like huge and gave her a cameltoe, then mission success.
“STILES: It feels so anticlimactic.” – Could not have phrased it better myself, Teen Wolf.
“MALIA: I’ve gotta go to summer school or I can’t do the
whole graduation thing.”
They couldn’t just leave her ass out of this one
And good luck to those fuckers watching 6b
because y’all know that’s how they’re keeping her ass around lmao
Those shorts are so not dresscode:
And she so has a wedgie in this scene lmao.
Yeah, buddy, me too:
Me. Fucking. Too.
“SCOTT: It kinda feels like nothing really changed.” Except now:
Way to stay completely noncommittal right to the bitter end, Teen Wolf.
I almost feel bad for the shippers who legitimately thought they were going to get some magical stydia ending, but:
And time for the official passing of the torch scene (take number like 5 because I swear to fucking god they’ve been doing a version of this every goddamn finale since season 4).
“STILES: The most important thing you can remember is that Mason is always gonna be the one who’s there to save your ass all the time.”
will never understand why Teen Wolf seems to think it’s a good thing that Liam
and Mason are literally ripoffs of Scott and Stiles? Like? Why are they proud of the fact that they are incapable of creating unique characters so they have to settle for shitty carbon copies of the original characters?
And he gave Mason his bat.
Did…did Stiles just fucking give Roscoe to Scott?
DC? What the fuck is in DC?
And Lydia is starting MIT as a junior…Teen Wolf, that might have made sense before you repeatedly SHOVED HER ASS INTO THE SAME MATH CLASS AS MALIA STOPPED-GOING-TOO-SCHOOL-IN-THE-FOURTH-FUCKING-GRADE TATE
And Scott’s going to UC Davis. How close is that to Beacon Hills?
Is 6b going to take place over the summer? So, Scott, Malia, Lydia, and the 2.0s are around? Because why would Stiles be the only one who had to leave right when the school year ends? Or is it going to be during the school year and Lydia and Scott are still inexplicably there but Stiles isn’t?
FBI? Stiles is going fed? And I like how McCall wasn’t
mentioned for like 3 seasons just to randomly be brought up now as if this makes any sort of sense.
I get that this is supposed to be some emotional
moment where Stiles gives the jeep to Scott, but I am just confused:
Isn’t he still gonna need a car in
Lydia’s the one driving him? How about his
fucking father? Or his best friend? Nope, gotta keep the vague and noncommittal stydia bullshit up to
the last second.
It doesn’t seem in character for him to give
this away and it’s obvious they’re only doing it as an excuse to have the damn
thing in 6b so it’s kinda just pissing me off.
I feel like Stiles has already given so much to Scott. We’ve already seen Stiles sacrifice a lot and this moment would have been more powerful if Scott was the one doing
the giving this time around.
And if Stiles drives off in a Toyota, I swear to fucking god…
I know this key bit is supposed to be funny,
but again I’m too distracted to laugh:
A key to Scott’s house? Yeah, that one is a nice call
back. I’ll give them that one.
The key to Scott’s room? Why does Scott have a lock that take a key on his door? Also, no he doesn’t. He does, though, inexplicably have a slidelock as of season 5.
The master key to the school? As if this school isn’t
perpetually unlocked haha? And we’ve really only seen them have to unlock anything in the school like once and it was when Stiles unlocked them chem room during 3b and realized he put
the hit out on Kira. And it was this whole big plot about him not knowing where the key came from? Remember that, Teen Wolf?
And key to sheriff station? They used cards, not physical keys. Again, that was a pretty important part of an episode in 3b.
Lastly, if Scott is leaving too, why is he the one being
given the keys?
“STILES: I need you. You know that.” “SCOTT: I need you too.”
My sciles heart is a sucker for this shit, but there have been a
lot of times now where Stiles has expressed this sort of sentiment to Scott. We got that whole speech in 3x06 about Stiles needing Scott. It might
have been nice to see the roles reversed this time? Why can’t Scott ever be the emotional instigator?
“RADIO: You’re telling me there’s a body in the woods?” Okay, fine, that’s actually funny. It’s entirely too coincidental, but I’ll let it slide
because I like it haha
…that’s it? No send off with the sheriff? We got a fucking scene of Stiles weirdly telling the new fucks he loves them, but NOTHING WITH HIS OWN GODDAMN FATHER?
I just…is that seriously how they’re ending this?
wait..wait a second..
WHO THE FUCK IS IN THE BACK OF THE JEEP:
GODDAMN IT, TEEN WOLF:
Did Jeff Davis need a cameo that badly?
Y’know, in a tragic sense, I am kind of impressed: they managed to fuck up in the actual last second
Why do you say malia was originally gonna be a villain
Because it’s blatantly obvious in every aspect of the narrative that involves her character?
Here’s the thing: Malia doesn’t make any fucking sense. Like, forget ships, actor preferences, whether or not you enjoy the character and just consider her objectively and it’s clear that nothing about her is logical. I’m not saying you can’t like her anyway, but her character is not logical. That’s just a fact.
And I think you can break her character down into 3 fundamental reasons as to why she does not make sense:
She’s a werecoyote.
Her background itself is severely flawed.
Her relationship with Stiles.
Now I’m going to discuss these one by one in more detail for clarification.
1. She’s a were-coyote.
That in itself might not sound illogical to you, but I think you need to keep two things in mind here. The first thing is just that werewolf + werecoyote = werecoyote is confusing in and of itself.
The second thing is that there’s no reason for her to be a werecoyote. I mean, we’re never really given any explanation on how werecoyotes differ from werewolves. For all intents and purposes, Malia seems to have the exact same abilities, powers, and weaknesses as every werewolf in the show. They never introduced or explored any werecoyote related mythology and her nature doesn’t bring anything different or unique to the table and, yet, she’s a fucking werecoyote.
So the question remains: why make her a werecoyote? It would have been easier and made more sense if she was just another werewolf. Malia being a werecoyote is not only illogical, but it has served no purpose (other than making her an extra special special snowflake, of course). So why did they do it?
2. Her background itself is severely flawed.
This one is really more of a two-parter.
A. Her backstory is basically one giant, gaping plothole.
It’s a little funny that the more they tried to explain the whole ‘desert wolf killed her family’ fiasco, the less sense it actually made. It’s pretty fucking apparent that the whole Desert Wolf related plot was just made up as they went. The fact that nothing we learn in season 4 and beyond regarding Malia’s origin story actually adds up makes it clear that it wasn’t part of her character when they introduced her to the show. They either didn’t have a real origin story for her at all because they didn’t need one or they had a totally different one when they introduced her. So ask yourself what they actually planned as Malia’s backstory when they brought her character in because it sure as fuck wasn’t what they tried to show in seasons 4 and 5.
B. Everything about her character negates her background.
From the fact that she’s in high school, to her vocabulary, to her relationships - no part of her character appropriately reflects her background. From here, you have two options and you can believe that either:
The entire creative team has a combined IQ of 50 and not single one of their educated writers understands the basics of how to craft a character so no one even considered all of these issues
The issues weren’t actually issues because either the background was going to be false and/or things like Malia’s extensive vocabulary, firm grip on facetiousness, and outstanding ability to manipulate that we witnessed in 3b weren’t supposed to make sense.
Which option makes more sense to you?
3. Her relationship with Stiles.
You do not have to be formally educated in writing to know that the way this relationship started is just about the worst fucking way you can start a relationship…at least one that’s supposed to romantic, healthy, and long-lasting.
I’m just gonna come right out and say it: no one in their right fucking mind would start a romance via a sexual encounter that’s occurring between two virtual strangers and is littered with consent issues in the dirty basement of a mental institution…especially in a scene that’s literally apropos of absolutely nothing. No one is that bad at writing. I mean, this is basically character suicide; stalia was fucked literally hehthe second they wrote this scene and there’s no chance in hell every person on that creative team did not know it.
And it’s clear they did, in fact, know this by how they handled it in the aftermath: they pretended it never happened. They put in a time jump before season 4 to distance stalia from this encounter and they never bring up that scene in the show. Not one fucking time. They never mention that these two had sex, they never mention Stiles losing his virginity (which was a pretty huge fucking deal), and they even go so far as to avoid ever confirming that stalia has had sex after this. Why? Because they know how fucking gross that scene was.
Basically, if you’re goal is to write a stalia romance, 3x20 is pretty much the exact opposite of how accomplish that. So are the writers really that braindead or was writing a stalia romance not actually their goal?
Based just on those three reasons, it’s clear that Malia never could have possibly worked. Every single decision they made in regards to Malia in 3b is essentially the complete antithesis of what they should have done if their intent was to set her up as a main character and a significant love interest. Seriously, those choices are so fucking stupid, so unfathomable, that the more logical choice is simply that this wasn’t their intent at all.
So if their intent wasn’t to set Malia up as a main character/love interest, then let’s take another look at those three reasons she doesn’t make any sense through the lens of her being set up as a villain instead:
1. She’s a werecoyote.
Being a werecoyote serves no purpose for Malia as she is now, but if she were a villain? Oh, that changes things.
Seriously, she was introduced as a coyote at the same time as a kitsune during the season about Stiles being possessed by a tricker spirit. We are blatantly told that foxes and coyotes are trickster spirits. That’s obviously too deliberate to be played off as coincidental. And, yet, after 3b there is never any mention of coyotes being tricksters again. Funny how suddenly that’s not a thing once Malia is a main character, right? And I guess her timing was just lucky.
Basically, there’s no rhyme or reason to Malia being a werecoyote unless she was supposed to be a trickster.
2. Her background itself is severely flawed.
If Malia had been a villain, all the mess that is her character in seasons 4 through 6 wouldn’t even be a thing. All of the issues and discrepancies and seemingly illogical character choices would suddenly have an explanation.
3. Her relationship with Stiles.
3x20 is utterly nonsensical if the purpose is to establish Malia as a main character and to establish her romance with Stiles…but it makes perfect sense if the purpose is to establish her as a trickster spirit who is playing Stiles. If you forget the bullshit that comes after and you watch 3x20 through the eyes of Malia being a villain, then that mess of an episode is suddenly a fucking masterpiece. Seriously, try it.
Look at it this way: if you can fix so much - an entire season that ended up not making sense, an entire character who is fundamentally devoid of logic, and all the plotholes that have plagues the series ever since that character’s introduction - if you can fix all of that just by making one simple change (i.e. Malia being a villain), don’t you think maybe that was the plan in the first place?
(And this is just considering what happened in the context of the show, you can also add what happened outside of it like: Shelley being made a main character straight away, the disproportional amount of promotion Shelley received, and the fact that Jeff himself stated that both Kira and Malia were originally temporary characters).
y’all believe it’s true but let’s clear something up ladies and gentlemen
That’s what teen wolf gave us from the start Stiles was in love(he still is) with Lydia
‘Lydia, I’ve had a crush on you since the third grade’ - Stiles Stilinski 1x11
‘I’m in lоve with a nut job’ - Stiles Stilinski
and then other charactes mentioned it for several times as well
’He likes you a lot, doesnt he?’ - Aiden
’He’s had a crush on her since, like, third grade, so’- Allison
’He still likes her, doesnt he?’- Kira
’And Lydia would never run and hide’ - ‘Because of Stiles?”- Derek and Aiden
‘And those two theyre pretty good together’- Scott
‘It need to be someone who can pull you back, someone who has a strong connection to you, a kind of emotional tether. Lydia, you go with Stiles’ - Deaton
The stydia development is breathtaking. We went from Lydia ignoring Stiles to Lydia refusing to leave Stiles one. Lydia grew up and realised her feelings for Stiles. She won’t ignor him anymore, she won’t forget him.
What’s more, we have a lot of confirmations that stydia has been developing foryears from Dylan, Holland and Jeff Davis as well, Let’s see. darlings.
‘He’s comfortable having Lydia in his heart’ - Dylan O'Brien
‘He’s taken with Lydia, he loves Lydia’ -
‘He will always love Lydia. I mean she’s, she’s like his love’ -
‘The moment with Lydia and him is very sweet and everyone is gonna love that moment. I loved it so much when I read it and shooting it too’ -
Dylan O'Brien about Stydia kiss.
‘Even if he does move on, he will always love her. Not matter what. He will always take care for her in that way’ -
‘It will happen, one day’ -
‘I think Stiles and Lydia are soulmates’ - Holland Roden
‘Lydia went from not knowing Stiles to them having a close relationship’ - Holland Roden
‘It’s like looking through a time lapse of any relationship between two people, where it can drastically change, based on their years in high school. She went from not knowing who he is to having this connection,some of it unspoken, but also there’s this energy between them. I’ve always said they’re two side of the same coin. One comes off maybe slightly more elegant in her speech and the other one is slightly more spastic but equally intelligent. So I think they make a great team. In what capacity, I don’t know. I cannot say’ - Holland Roden.
‘They have something special. We decided that this is the place to show that they’ve gone from a simple crush to friends to something deeper’ - Jeff Davis,September 7, 2016
‘I love Stiles and Lydia’s relationship particularly for the fact that we’re trying to tell a story of boyhood crush turning into possibly adult love. Stiles must see Lydia as more than just a beautiful girl before he could actually love her. And Lydia has to see Stiles as more than just a dumb kid chasing after her. It’s interesting to try to craft growing, maturing relationships’ -
Jeff Davis,July 28, 2013
‘We’re building the romances we’ve been concentrating on in Season 5 and throughout the seasons’ -
‘This episode starts two characters down a path that’s been building for years’ - Jeff Davis about 5x16
‘But also, they’re great together. Stiles and Lydia are Maddie and David, they’re the Mulder and Scully of our show - they’re always just good together. So it’ll be fun’ -
‘I always imagined the very last scene very specifically. It would be Scott, Allison, Stiles and Lydia. The original four, and it would show them many years later, they would think back to the battes they fought, the friends they lost, and the journey they won. And Stiles and Lydia would watch their children as the play with Scott and Allison’s children in a peaceful place, where everyone can just take on big breathe’ -
Jeff Davis on Allison’s death.
That’s all we have, but yeah, keep saying Stydia is fanservice, you are absolutely right
I believe my feelings can be summed up in one gif:
Just watching the ‘previously on’ segment has me nervous.
Oh, god, we’re starting in the hospital with
flickering lights. That’s probably not a good sign.
And we’re staring with Liam. Definitely not a
good sign. And did his hair actually get worse? I think it got worse.
Okay, so, they’re actually in
nowheresville/alternate dimension? But why does nowheresville now have a
replica hospital instead of just being a train station?
Still not over the fact that they named a town
…so…wait…Liam is still actually in Beacon Hills? Why are the signs there? I’m less than 2 minutes in and already confused as fuck haha.
“SHERIFF: Give the boy some room!” So the ghost riders just let people come with their weapons lmao? And sheriff is dumb enough to shoot up
into a crowd? And can people actually get hurt here in nowheresville? Like, if
sheriff just straight up started shooting right now, what would even happen? The people were already erased from reality, can they even get hurt?
Also, how long was sheriff in there? Because, like, back in 6x05 when new people got dropped off, the ghost riders legitimately dropped them off right in front of everyone else, they didn’t just inconspicuously materialize. So, given that logic, sheriff’s been there at least a hot minute and, yet, he didn’t automatically go to Stiles? It’s not like Stiles was hard to find, he was standing off to the side all by himself? Or why didn’t Stiles notice him arrive? Maybe this was explained in another episode, but I kinda doubt it, so:
as I love Stilinski family moments, I’m still bitter as fuck over the fact that
Stiles wasn’t worrying about his father this whole damn time.
Well, that nice moment lasted all of 2 seconds before
getting shot down by stydia baiting.
“SHERIFF: We’ll find each other again.” What the fuck even?
Can’t let Stiles relationship with his own fucking father encroach on the
“SHERIFF: I’ll hold them back.” literally how the fuck?
True alpha scott and his pack couldn’t do that, but human sheriff can? How? We
already know guns don’t work against them?
Okay this is all ridiculous and I’m in pain, but
damn Dylan looks good
“LYDIA: When I kissed you!” …did they kiss again?
Somehow? Like through a mirror portal or some shit? Did I fucking miss it? Or are they
talking about when she slammed her mouth on his back in 3a? Because I swear to fucking god if they’re suddenly playing
that her stopping his panic attack was
because she has feelings for him….
Look how awkward her hand is:
And seriously I’m seeing nothing but:
Posey is me while watching this:
“MALIA: We didn’t see anyone.” Okay, so, one I’m really
over this whole ‘only Lydia has any connection with Stiles shit’ as if
Scott wouldn’t and the credits haven’t even rolled yet. Like, unless it’s because she’s a banshee, they can miss me with this bullshit. Two, why does Malia answer for other people? Like
how could she know what Scott saw? Three, get out of here with this scalia. I
can feel it coming.
So Stiles canonically has a stronger bond
with his jeep than he does with Lydia, Scott, or Malia? I’m here for it. #stoscoe
Question: how the fuck did Stiles make it through without being burned to death?
…how are the credits just now rolling? I feel
like I just sat through a half hour of bullshit and it hasn’t even been 5
Whoa, his hair did get worse:
He looks like a wet dog. I guess that’s fitting.
Seriously? They just wrote Scott out of that
scene because Liam doesn’t know how to use his words? So they could go full
throttle with the stydia bullshit with a stalia love triangle that is literally
seasons too late?
Aw, but Stiles still goes to Scott’s house
first. That’s how it should always be. Why they gotta play at this dumbass ship
baiting when they could focus on their friendship instead?
Still not over the fact that they change what
the McCall house looks like in every season haha.
Why would Stiles even go to the station? He knows his dad is missing? Who is he looking for? It’s not like Beacon Hills Sheriff’s Department has ever been any help to him lmao
And a radio? Why is he not just, y’know, getting
a fucking phone and calling people?
And if the whole town is gone, why didn’t we see
any of those people in the station when we saw sheriff?
Okay, how do they know Stiles actually made it
out into the real world? Like, I get that Lydia says she saw him, but when he
didn’t just walk through that tunnel thingy, why would they assume that this means he made it
into their world? Wouldn’t the logical conclusion be that it didn’t work and
he’s still stuck in nowheresville?
“MALIA: Stiles isn’t coming here. If he was, he
would have. And he hasn’t, so he’s not.” First of all, what the fuck kind of
logic? How long has it even been? 20 minutes? Chill the fuck out. Second, if
they all think Stiles is out running around, why the fuck wouldn’t they automatically all
split up and go to the places they think he would go? Like, y’know, his home,
or Scott’s home, or the sheriff’s station? Third, I hate when this show makes
it to where Lydia has-an-IQ-of-170 Martin is dumb as a fucking rock while Malia spent-the-better-part-of-a-decade-licking-her-own-ass-in-the-woods Tate is somehow the only with a
Okay, so the two worlds are converging…what’s
the point of this?
Oh god, not this fuck again:
Oh sweet baby jesus:
I got a whole list for this one:
Stop trying to put these two together, Teen
Wolf. They ain’t friends and Lydia doesn’t deserve this.
Why are they staring at the tread marks when
obviously the JEEP IS FUCKING GONE. LIKE, IS THAT NOT A BIG ENOUGH CLUE?
And wouldn’t they have been keeping tabs on the
jeep during this whole ordeal? So they should know it had to have been moved recently?
Is Lydia fucking Scooby Doo? She gonna sniff
that tire mark? The fuck she doing on the ground like that?
I am not fucking here for a Malia and Lydia
scene to be paralleling Stiles and Derek:
And how can Malia suddenly not smell him?
And what in the absolute fuck is Malia
Why is that shirt so fucking long? And look at those boots. Why does wardrobe hate her
“MALIA: Well, half the time he got it started with a
I get so mad when they act like Malia would be the only one to
know this and not Lydia. Lydia’s been around Stiles and that damn jeep way before Malia was even a thing.
Parrish is evil now? Or just controlled? Boy, they’ll literally do
anything to force stydia in this episode, won’t they lmao?
“NAZI: And I’ll have a true alpha by my side.” Lmao as
if that’s a selling point by now. Scott never does shit because they’re too busy trying to make Malia and Liam special.
All I’m getting from this scene is that even after
spending fuck knows how long in nowheresville, Stiles is still the only
competent one and he accomplishes more in the short time he’s been back than
all of them have in months lmao. Like, did he essentially save himself? And
then he found them? And then he’s probably gonna be the one to save the town
Watching that sciles hug, man, I started out like:
…then came the weird back patting…
…and then they completely destroyed it with Liam and a
cheap attempt at getting a laugh
Oh my good god:
“MALIA: Why is there a train station in the middle of
the library?” Is this line supposed to be funny? Teen Wolf, making the
character you just tried to play off as intelligent suddenly mentally challenged
is just confusing, not amusing. ·
“MALIA: Any chance they’re connected?” What
the fuck. No one is that goddamn stupid
“MALIA: ITS’ BAD WE HAVE TO GO!” Literally what I am saying to myself as I watch Shelley’s attempt at acting in this scene.
“LYDIA: Maybe there’s someone who can.” It better not be…
Aw fuck I managed to get forget about Mason
and Hayden until this point.
Look at Mason in that shirt:
transformation into Stiles 2.0 is complete, I see.
Now there are 57 rooms in the train station? What
Is that Randall on the train’s pa system? Why?
And how does Mason always know where Randall is? Is Mason supernatural or is this show just stupid? I’m guessing stupid.
if they don’t let me graduate, I swear to god!” Oh, I’m sure they will. Makes
as much sense as anything else in this damn show. I foresee a painful scene
with Natalie in this episode’s future. And I guess we know how they’re writing
Stiles/Dylan off. Love how the dropped this just 11 minutes into the
finale. Do I even need to keep watching now? He’s clearly gonna graduate and go
off to college or maybe the academy·
And, wait, he was gone for 3 months? Like, I know they’re doing that so graduation can happen, but there
was a 3 month time jump since season 5 which put us at January. Now it’s been
another three months so they’re at March, maybe April if the show wants to push
it. But they’re acting like graduation is happening right away? So either Teen
Wolf fucked up their timeline again which would not be a surprise or there’s
going to be a time jump of at least a month in this episode? I don’t know which option is worse…
How can they just grab Parrish when he’s on
fire? Werewolves aren’t fire proof? At all? Like the show is pretty heavily
based in werewolves not being fire resistant *cough * the Hales *cough* I mean, how many fucking time have they burned Peter now?
And Liam screaming? Is this supposed to be
funny because I’m too distracted by the fact that they are completely unharmed and
their clothes aren’t even singed to remember to laugh.
I’m still not over Parrish’s magical modesty
“STILES: Buddy, I love you, but we’re way past that.”
He wants the supernatural army in their world?
Okay, but, like, wasn’t it already?
You can divert it? They’re just gonna be like,
‘well, fuck the town to the left of us’
So now there’s a complete other world? Fuck this
plot, man haha.
“LIAM: We can’t move between worlds, but Corey can!”
Deus ex Randall strikes again. And I swear to fucking god they straight up
yanked his plot right out of monster’s inc. I’m predicting that someone is
gonna end up banished in the Himalayas at the end of this episode.
Why can’t anyone run like a normal fucking person on this show?
“STILES: Were we like that?” “SCOTT: Worse.” I love when this
show tries to play that angle and make it seem like the newbies are how the originals were. No. Nobody in the first three seasons was ever
that terribly written and illogical.
“SCOTT: You wanna split up?” “STILES: Never again.” All right,
you know I’m a sucker for some sciles, but does Scott never learn?
If they’re going to insist on all having all of these shots of
Liam running I am going to have to insist that someone teaches Sprayberry how
to run without looking like he just shit himself and is trying to hobble to a
“LIAM: I hate horses.”
Next season they’re bringing in a chick that’s
part horse and Liam’s gonna fuck it, calling it now.
Aw fuck what happened to Theo’s hair:
Liam’s bad hair contagious?
He just jumped off a balcony onto a horse. His poor dick.
Seriously, Lydia has a stronger
connection to Peter in canon than Malia does or ever realistically can at this point.
“MASON: I know his smile, I know his touch, and I know
that that’s his voice.” Lmao I know they’re trying to do some progressive ‘look
at our adorable gay romance’ moment here, but a voice is way more distinguishable
than anything he just said.
Oh and now Mason is having the same wires/PA
system moment that Stiles had in 6x05. You’re so fucking sly, Teen Wolf.
And now a slow motion kiss.
“HAYDEN: When’d you learn how to ride a horse?” “LIAM: Just
now.” These lines aren’t funny, Teen Wolf. And is that really the first fucking
question Hayden is gonna ask? Not ‘what the fuck are you doing here?’ Or ‘are you
fucking crazy?’ Or ‘Did you stop the ghost riders?’
As if Stiles is the one who would ever think something could be that easy. That’s Scott’s M.O.
“PETER: Where do you get this implausible optimism?”
“MALIA: Definitely not from my father.” “LYDIA: We don’t have time for this!” No, we really fucking don’t and yet you continue to waste it on this bullshit daddy/daughter relationship that is apropos of nothing. Knock it the fuck off.
“STILES: I finally saw the girl’s locker room. It’s not
that different. It’s kind of disappointing.” All right, I’ll give you that one, Teen Wolf. That line was actually pretty funny….except you really telling me
all those nights spent in the school and he never went in the girls locker room?
How many times have they done this shot this season?
How are Peter’s claws going through the ghost
riders now? Like now they suddenly don’t have a corporeal form?
Seriously, Teen Wolf:
*Malia gets hurt* ..me:
And now Peter is screaming for Malia because he’s oh so concerned about what should realistically be a minor injury. This seems like a good place to stop.
