To End Teen Wolf on this blog: a full honest review of everything!
Of course we’ll start from Season 1:
First of all I love Tyler Posey. He has developed quite a lot as an actor over the years but his acting in the first season was not good. This season was so incredibly cheesy and cliché. A good example would be the main relationship, Scallison. Though not the most cliché relationship to come out of this season. Main protagonist dating/in love with the antagonists daughter… I’m guessing Jeff watched American Dragon before writing this season. Now Stydia. Calling this cliché is beating a dead horse. Everyone knows it: popular bitch girl and loser geek boy. Yawn. Though personally I did like the guess of who the Alpha was. At first you thought it could be Derek. Then it could be the mysterious Deaton. And then it was revealed that it was Peter. That was enjoyable for me.
One of the biggest negatives of this season was how much of an asshole they wrote Stiles to be… Upon first watching the scene where he chained Scott up and wrote “Scotty” on the dog bowl I won’t lie, I giggled. But now… all over because the girl he was obsessed with kissed Scott instead of him; dehumanizing him with the dog bowl. AND then when they were training he was enjoying throwing hard as shit lacrosse balls at him and smiled when he caused Scott to get beat up. I get what Jeff was trying to go for here with the sarcastic comedic side kick. But he just came off as an asshole no one would want to be around.
One of the negative things that stuck with me was when Allison broke up with Scott for locking them in the classroom and risking his own life to protect them. It honestly seem like Jeff had wanted to create conflict between the relationship but couldn’t come up with a good enough reason so he wrote that mess. But one of things I did like about this season was the introduction to the Hale family. It brought in a lot of interesting/great lore.
Personally this was my favourite season out of all six.
It was the first season that brought in the intro - my favourite intro also.
They expanded a lot on the shows lore.
Bringing in side effects of the Bite - apart from death. Becoming a Kanima (a mutation of the Bite). Of course Teen Wolf ruined that lore. Oh we’ll get back to that!
It gave us the ultimate antagonist to the series: Gerard Argent.
Of course the only negative thing I can think of about this season is yet again coming from Stiles. Just that one scene where Lydia was going to risk her life to save Jackson - who she loved at the time - and Stiles made it all about him “if you die I’ll go out of fricken mind”. Funny… this is the least douchest he is in the entire show.
I also really liked the ending. Apart from the Alpha Pack introduction it felt like everything had wrapped up. Like the that could’ve been a series finale - just how the camera panned away from the shot while Scott and Stiles practiced lacrosse.
Other than that there’s nothing much to say about this season. I liked it, it’s my favourite, but it felt like a filler season more than anything.
SEASON THREE PART 1…
This season is where the show dropped it’s… “humour”. It went for a more grounded feel. I guess that could be a way to word it. The Alpha Pack was actually, to me at least, a good storyline. They wanted Scott - who was becoming a True Alpha. It had Scott making the hard decisions. It had Derek Hale making hard decisions. Giving up his Alpha-ness? to save Cora. Which honestly…. I love Scott but that was incredibly forced just to have Scott as the Alpha of the show.
Cora Hale… I guess the writers tried to let this slit but: they gave her the same attitude, mannerisms, and personality as Derek. They were building up Stora - before Adelaide left. This was obviously a middle finger to the Sterek Fandom - who at the time they were heavily baiting for views. Anyway…
This season also gave us the most horrendous kiss in television history. And if you guessed the Stydia panic attack kiss then you’d be correct. Angela Harvey wrote this episode and she said she put in a lot of research into it. Obviously that was a lie from her part. When having a panic attack - the kind Stiles had - you don’t grab ahold of them and kiss them. You give them space and try to calm them down. Lydia is supposed to be a genius and she does something this stupid? God awful writing.
Good writing though: Motel California had some serious amazing writing and that performance from Tyler at the end!! Goddamn that was a good episode!
Scott, Stiles, and Allison sacrifice themselves in order to give like to the Nemeton. They had to have someone on the other side they have a connection to. This scene was an obvious set up for Allison and Isaac - to have Scott be “okay” with it. But if you wanna see it as a Stydia scene then whatever. Go for it bitch.
We got more insight into the Hale family. Talia Hale (honestly one of the best mothers in the show - she only had one scene with Derek and great mother!!). We got more werewolf society lore - the symbols meaning things (the spiral menacing revenge).
So apart from one gross disgusting kiss that would’ve put Stiles’ life in danger the season was alright.
SEASON THREE PART 2…
I know this season is regarded as the best season. But honestly…. I hated it. Lol.
There is good parts to it of course. The introduction to Malia and the revelation that she’s Peter Hale’s biological daughter - the introduction to a new breed of were. Early Stalia. The parents knowing about the Supernatural. And that’s it.
Why I hated this season: it was constantly Dylan O’Brien screaming in my ears. I don’t care what your opinion of his action is. But mine: I don’t like his acting. All he does is pout and scream in everything. And 3B was the epitome of that. That’s MY opinion if you think otherwise… I don’t really care aha.
The “are you still milking that” comment from Stiles - saying to Isaac. Just….. ugh. Isaac was referring to his years of childhood abuse from his father (being locked in the freezer) and Stiles asked if he’s still milking that… I just. The fact that this scene was seen as funny as labeled as “sarcasm” is highly disgusting.
What annoyed me so much with this season is that even though they brought in Kitsunes - which is rich with so much lore these writers decided to put all that lore and effort into Stiles rather than the Kitsunes. Hell… we never even found out what Kitsune Noshiko was.
This was also the start of the emo phase for Teen Wolf. What I mean by that is that Goddamn lighting was ALWAYS dark. I swear I had to turn up my brightness up to 100% and tilt my screen backwards just to see whatever the fuck was going on.
What I never expected from Teen Wolf was a surprise death scene. And I was incredibly shocked when Allison died - because Crystal left.
The cliffhanger ending. No matter how bad the storyline turned out to be that cliffhanger with Kate Argent being alive and being turned from Peter’s throat slash was great.
Right from the get go I wanna say I loved the deadpool concept/story for this season. It was written bad but it had A LOT of promise and I genuinely found it enjoyable and exciting.
In this season we’re introduced to Mexican hunters who test Scott and what type of Alpha he is. The woman in charge tells him if he ever turns someone she’ll come for him. This was the beginning where the Teen Wolf forgot/ignored previous made canon because after Scott turns Liam nothing happens.
I wanna talk about Kate’s plan… because even after all these years I still have no idea what the fuck she was doing. So she kidnaps Derek to turn him young - back when she manipulated him - so he’ll show her where their family vault is so she could… honestly I’ve forgotten what else she wanted to do because quite frankly I don’t care.
This season had three antagonists. Now I can keep up with a lot but three antagonists in 12 episodes? That was ridiculous. It was too much for a small season. You had the assassins who were killing for the Deadpool - the Benefactor. You had Kate Argent and her Berserkers. And you had Peter Hale who wanted to get revenge on Scott.
Honestly I did like how Peter turned out to be the ultimate villain - angry that Scott ‘’usurped’’ the Hale family territory/legacy. Being responsible for the Deadpool - responsible for Meredith doing it all.
The relationships. Stalia, Scira, and the beginnings of showing Marrish. It was doing so well… but of course Teen Wolf, in usual Teen Wolf fashion, fucks that up.
Another instance of the Teen Wolf writers forgotting/ignoring previous made canon came with Liam Dunbar. We’re told in early seasons that the Bite heals everything and makes you stronger/perfect. For example: Erica. But Liam still has his IED - being labelled the Beta with anger issues? Such piss poor writing. Speaking of IED:
Stiles calling Liam a walking time bomb in front of him - referring to his mental disorder. This was glorified and labeled as a “funny” moment. But it was awful. It was very ableist and disgusting.
The ending. Something many don’t know is that Season 4 was written to be an end because Jeff didn’t know if there was going to be a fifth season.
[Intermission: this is where the organic flow between seasons stopped. What I mean by that is: at the end of S1 Derek is the Alpha and bites Jackson, which flowed perfectly into S2, which ended with the Alpha Pack, which again flowed perfectly, and the end of S3 had Kate Argent’s reveal and they flowed. Season 5 and Season 6 didn’t flow. It was obvious it was just stacked on top of the rest.]
SEASON FIVE PART 1…
The first part of this season was essentially a flashback in Lydia’s mind - since she was in Eichen and it was leading up to Lydia’s recuse.
This season was also the beginning of the end for Teen Wolf. Don’t get me wrong… the beginning of this season was good. Scira, Stalia, and Marrish.
It was obvious the writers wanted to develop Marrish - they spent a lot of time in it. And a nice fact: Jeff wrote the Marrish episodes so he wanted it. But… we’ll get back to that.
We’re introduced to Theo Raeken. Quite possibly the worst villain in my opinion. With such a forced - emotional manipulative redemption in the sixth season it just makes me dislike his character as a whole. But anyway… we’re also introduced to yet again another terrible villain:
The Dread Doctors. Steampunk looking fucks who do shit that negates everything that was previously made canon. Tracy being the Kanima… the Kanima is a mutation of the Bite due to your personality/feeling you don’t belong - have no one. Look if they wanted to bring in all kinds of Supernaturals for this abhorrent storyline then whatever. But the way they just ignored canon - it’s like they think the audience is stupid. But, again, we’ll get back to that.
Marrish‘s connection: I loved this. Not only for the ship but because it was unique and not seen to the show before. Two Supernatural creatures of death connected - saving each other. Of course there were those who saw the hallucinations that were triggered by the connection as “sex dreams” and labeled Parrish as a “pedo” (Lydia being 18; a relationship between the two would’ve been legal) - if you’re one of those people you’re an idiot.
Stalia‘s breakup. You know what - after what we find out in S6 and how he treated her Malia deserved better than that prick. But this breakup scene…. it was so terribly written. And it was written by Angela Harvey who wrote the panic attack kiss so it’s no surprise why it’s terribly written. The breakup made zero sense. And this was the beginning of the fan service that killer Teen Wolf.
SEASON FIVE PART 2…
Part 2 opened by with Marrish‘ a connection. Which was great. Jordan Parrish promising he’ll break through the walls to save Lydia. And he does :)
Stiles being a prick towards Malia after HE broke up with her. And this was never addressed. Who the fuck does he think he is to treat her like shit when he walked away when everything was bad and dark?
The Stiles and Scott fight. This was the moment the hate I had for Stiles solidified. What happened to Noah (Stiles’ dad) was not not Scott’s fault. And Stiles’ first reaction? To attack Scott. And then came the scene where Noah said Stiles should forgive Scott… it’s just… did I say that this part of the season had terrible writing? Because it does.
Malia is searching for the Desert Wolf to kill her. Honestly I did like this buildup since Season 4. And even though she was an antagonist and was a piss poor excuse for a mother I do wish we had at least one scene with powerful Malia and human Desert Wolf in Season 6. Like have Malia have the final say; say she’s stronger than the Desert Wolf ever will be and say they’ll never see each other again. To me at least it would’ve been gratifying.
The Lydia recuse… these two episodes were hyped up to be an amazing Stydia scene that the fans have been wating for. Lol. What I want to get out of the way first of all: the actual recuse episode had such awful ratings. This hyped up Stydia episode had the worst reviews of any episode of the time. If that’s not a clarification of how much the the majority of the Fandom didn’t want Stydia then I don’t know what is. The actual recuse itself: Jordan Parrish saved her. That’s fact. He burnt down the Mountain Ash. He burnt down the walls. He took in her nuclear scream that would’ve killed the entire town. He carried her out. Without him everyone would’ve died.
But let’s talk about the fan service of the episode. Them taking Stiles’ Jeep when Natalie’s car was faster. Scott driving instead of Stiles - Scott could’ve taken her pain away. And the “Stiles saved me” line. The fact that someone got payed to write this episode is a joke.
Lydia is the one that pulls Jordan from the Hellhound with “Jordan”. Remember that canon. Because the writers clearly didn’t.
The way they treated Kira/Arden. Honestly fuck Teen Wolf for this. They cut do many of her scenes. Kira was supposed to have a fighting scene with the Beast in 5x17 but they cut it. Hell, Arden didn’t even know she wasn’t coming back until a few months/weeks before S6.
The end of the season. It was basically a send off for Allison Argent and I did like that.
SEASON SIX PART 1…
This fucking season… after seeing the god awful ratings for the hyped up Stydia episode the writers decided to go along with the fan service which ultimately killed Teen Wolf. Because if you didn’t know before Season 6 almost every episode raked in over a million views.
But after that trailer - the “remember I love you” trailer the show never got over a million views. Which resulted in it getting cancelled. If you don’t believe just hop onto your search engine and look it up. Also more proof: they were still writing the final episodes during the break between part 1 and part 2. They had to make a lot of changed. How sad that they killed their own show in order to pander to a Fandom that bullied cast, writers, and other fans for years.
The actual storyline itself. It can be labeled as one worst: dumb.
Stiles is taken by the Ghost Riders and he’s THAT important a Ghost Rider had to take the form of Claudia and stay with Noah… Teen Wolf I know you’re obsessed with your mayonnaise but he’s not worldly important. Speaking of Stiles:
We find out that Stiles has loved Lydia while he was with Malia. Regardless of what you ship you have to agree what Stiles did was cruel. He emotionally cheated on Malia for their entire relationship. So in order to push this fan service they turned their precious Stiles into a prick with symptoms for being a fuckboy.
They also gave Lydia extra powers for some reason. To see into the past and they gave banshees telekinesis… they just made Lydia, who was already the Teen Wolf Deus Ex Machina, too overpowered.
What I never got is the Western obsession with Nazi Germany. I know for a fact Germany has done everything they could to apolgiuse for that era in history and has sponged/banned anything involving Nazis and Hitler from their country. So the writers thought bringing up Nazi Germany for a storyline would be cool… use your own fucking horrible history for once; use your Goddamn Civil War.
Just to further push fan service they ruined Lydia’s character. Season 5 Lydia was great. She was strong. Powerful. Selfless. Season 6 Lydia? All she did was fucking cry. Whenever the rest were out there fighting to protect the town she didn’t care - not unless it had to do with Stiles. They were all fighting to rememberer him and get him back and they still fought. Lydia only remembered she had powers when Stiles was in danger - of course.
Lydia and Jordan’s connection being purposely forgotten. Even when Jordan was controlled by the Nazi Wolf and she said his name. Nothing happened. When Lydia was in danger Jordan never alerted. They purposely ignored canon.
What the fuck else… oh yeah that nose breaking Stydia kiss… these two cannot kiss well. It was also great. So many memes were born from that kiss that almost broke Dylan’s nose. Other than that I don’t know. I didn’t watch 6x10 ahahaha.
SEASON SIX PART 2…
Scott and Malia… I do not ship them. Like at all. Though I’m happy they’re happy. But I do see a lot that they came outta nowhere in 6B. Which isn’t true. One look throughout 6A you could see what the writers were doing.
If you’ve seen one of my posts before you’ll know I kinda liked the idea of a war between Supernaturals and humans. But this wasn’t it. Honestly this was dumb. We’re supposed to believe that if people knew about the Supernatural kind the government wouldn’t step in? Lol whatever.
This season also tried to so hard to make Nolan/Froy a thing. There’s the quote from Mean Girls that applies here but I don’t type it out. Hopefully everyone will know it. This Nolan character. I hated him. From the moment Froy tried to act and hearing its words I hated it. And the forced redemption arc? Lol. No. He’s still a villain that tormented the school - sliced into people’s hands and had others killed. He’d really get along with Henry from IT.
Jackson being half Kanima. THAT. DOESN’T. MAKE. SENSE! Being a Kanima is a mutation of the bite - it’s a shape you take on when you don’t know who you are or if you belong. It’s not a gene…. Teen Wolf writers yet again ignoring previous made canon :D
Speaking of redemptions… Theo Raeken. I don’t care what his herd of fangirls say. After everything - after all the pain, death, and destruction he caused he belongs where Kira put him. In Hell.
One of the great things: Lydia seemed to not give a fuck about Stiles. Which is honestly hilarious. Some glorious relationship you have there. But from what Holland has said: that Stydia was left ambiguous on purpose. So basically Teen Wolf killed itself for nothing. GG Teen Wolf writers.
Again there were three villains for 10 episodes. I’d say this was just like Season 4 and have too much antagonists in one season but this part of the season was soooooo slow. But anyway the villains: Gerard coming back as the ultimate viliain. Monroe and her crew of cunts. And the discount Red-Skull that prays on fears. Oh speaking of:
How the discount Red-Skull was defeated was just so bad. Mountain Ash… it was just so out of nowhere. It honestly felt cheap. And of course it had to be thrown by Stiles. Because Stiles has gotta be the hero…
Sterek: for years this fucking show has baited Sterek and toyed with the Fandom. Do you wanna know how bad TW/Jeff treated the Sterek Fandom? Well: the Facebook TW account used Sterek shipper to get their page to a million likes after promising to release Sterel bloopers. They had Tyler and a Dylan cuddle up on a literal ship/boat in order to rake in votes. That shit with Cora. Sterek fan art I banned from being signed at conventions - Sterek questions are also banned. And to further treat the Sterek Fandom like trash: they drag back Tyler Hoechiln into it - only to further bait Sterek for views.
The ending: a hero walk off cliffhanger. WHAT. A. CHEESY. LET. PILE. OF. SHIT! First of all leaving it off a cliff hanger? 6 years of buildup for what? For the fucking reboot in 2019 - which has unfortunately been announced. I’m guessing it’s about Alec. Whatever…. second, the hero walk off is just… ugh. Of all the TV endings this show could’ve dipped into it just had to be that? So basically a terrible ending for a terrible show.
That’s it. Teen Wolf is done on this blog. No more. Malia and Scott had their happy endings - Parrish survived in the end. Stydia was left off ambiguous - not confirmed to be endgame. I’ll never have to see Stiles Stilinski on TV ever again. Seasons 1 - 5a gave me enjoyment. The fan service cesspool known as 5b - 6B can burn in Hell. Soooooo…. fuck you Teen Wolf. Byeeeeeeeeeee!
I’ll most likely just blog about things I like and don’t like from now on… for example: Star Wars and my immense hate for Reylo. My problems with Riverfail, I mean Riverdale, Game of Thrones, the Walking Dead and my immense hatred for Daryl Dixon. Shit, I may even catch up on the 100 :)
