Remember creepy rogue Nazi experiment, Mr. Douglas? Well, boy were we right, cause he went from being wildly hot and creepy to holy hell, this guy takes the serial killer to new heights. Mr. Douglas becomes the focus of this episode for several reasons, but the most prominent are that he’s revealed to be a serial killer connected to a string of murders in which all victims are missing their pineal gland – a very small part of the brain that’s near impossible to remove by human means. I think Mr. Douglas’ creep barometers are now off the charts.
With the return of traditional villainous werewolves (there hasn’t been too many in the past three seasons), this only heralds the return of Papa Argent, famed werewolf hunter, occasionally ally to Scott’s pack and the father to the late Allison Argent. We don’t see much of him, but I’m sure that’ll change soon.
Back to our villains of season six, the Ghost Riders (Seriously, Marvel when are you gonna call foul here?), the younger pack members, Liam, Mason, Corey and Hayden team up with a fellow student, Gwen, who’s sister is missing. Missing, and of course, no one seems to remember her. I mentioned before that if one see’s the Ghost Riders, it’s pretty much a wrap. Knowing this, the group bands together to defend their classmate. But leaving such a daunting task in the hands of mildly experienced pack members doesn’t bode well – for anyone. The gang throws a party to protect Gwen while lining the house with mountain ash, the magical Gandalf of the supernatural. Basically, no supernatural creature can break through a barrier of mountain ash, including the werewolves. I’m rambling here, but trust these things should be noted for multiple reasons.
I mentioned in my previous recap how Corey (the literal chameleon of the group) can touch something or someone affected by the Ghost Riders and bring them into reality, making the object or person visible to our reality as the object/person would normally be cloaked by the Ghost Rider’s abilities. Welp, guess what? In an inevitable scuffle with the Ghost Riders Corey touches one, making him visible to everyone in the party. Everyone. And if one sees a Ghost Rider, they disappear next. Connecting the dots here?
Yup, that’s right, an entire class of partying students will be removed by the Ghost Riders. This was not your day Corey.
Taking these to the more sensible group; Lydia and Scott. The two realize that Stiles is also the nickname of Sheriff Stilinski’s father, who suffers from dementia in a senior home. In a last ditch effort to find answers on the mysterious Stiles, the gang visits Grandpa Stilinski. And because this is Teen Wolf, it doesn’t go well. The teens eventually upset Grandpa Stilinski, and in a fit of rage the Sheriff’s father yells; “Go crawling back to your dead wife and your loser son!”
See guys, Stiles isn’t completely forgotten! I get the hunch, Stiles make take center stage come next episode. Let’s hope the gang makes some process in the next episode.
