Teen Wolf Review: Don't Think About It

by at . Comments

Other than Stephen Lunsford's slightly over-the-top performance as a psychotic killer on his last leg, "Fury" was yet another action-packed hour of Teen Wolf that managed to simultaneously scare the audience to death and pull at its heart strings.

Just like always, every second was pulse-pounding, as Jackson was paralyzing main characters and murdering extras at the drop of the hat. He wasn't doing it on his own accord, though. We learned at the end of last week's episode that Matt was indeed the master, and he put that title to use here, thinking about killing almost everyone in his sight.

Scott Transforms

While it still ended up being a bit confusing, the flashback to Jackson's camera recording session helped a great deal. It might not have shored up why or how Matt became the kanima's master, but his watching of the video, and the hand touching between master and kanima, explained when it all began.

Through a long-winded speech to Scott, Matt then revealed more about his murderous tour through town, telling his rival about how the 2006 swim team laughed and did nothing to help while he almost drowned to death. Apparently the murders weren't linked simply because the swim team sucks, like Stiles hilariously joked.

Each time Matt's anger towards one of the former swimmers arose, the kanima would go in and murder them. That sounds like a pretty sweet gig. Matt got to release all of his frustration, and watch the jerks who screwed him die, and Jackson was taking all the heat for it. He couldn't leave well enough alone, though, and his need to come out of the wood work cost him his life.

Who saw that one coming? Gerard just drowning Matt in order to take on the master's powers? We all knew this guy was up to no good, but becoming a kanima master? I didn't even think he was that crazy.

Now that Gerard is in charge, and Matt is out of the picture, I'm expecting very different things out of the kanima for the final two episodes of the season. You would assume the old man is going to be methodical with this new power. He'll probably find a way to use the creature to his advantage strategically.

On the other hand, doesn't he hate all of these beasts? Isn't it his life's work to kill werewolves and lizards and everything else? Is this emotion taking over? Or is it just a part of a bigger plan to defeat the wolves?

If it is, he's certainly got his work cut out for him because Peter is back, and he saw everything go down. Between Scott, Derek and Peter, those wolves aren't going to back down. Luckily for Gerard, I don't think any of his kin are big fans of Peter.

There were a couple of other big emotional moments during "Fury."

  1. Momma McCall finally found out about everything! I can't imagine everything that was going through her mind as she saw Derek and the kanima fighting, only to then see her son come in and turn into a wolf!
  2. Allison and Scott hit a major rock in their relationship. Fueled by the fire of her mother's death, Allison was on a war path towards Derek and not even her love for Scott could get in the way.

The episode also gave us the insight that the vet has been a mentor to the Hales for many years, and allowed us to enjoy the Sterek love as Stiles and Derek were paralyzed on top of each other for a short while.

With only two hours remaining in the Teen Wolf summer, I can't wait for next Monday. What about you all? What did you think of "Fury?" What was your favorite moment? Will you miss Matt? And how badly do you want Gerard's life to end?

For a minute I thought Ms. McCall was going to transform into something supernatural and commence to whipping Matt's a$$ for shooting Scott.

Gerard's pill popping reminds me of the fourth Harry Potter book where Mad Eye Moodie drinks the potion to not change into his original form. They're probably getting inspiration from that.

Is anyone noticing the grandpa is a pill popper at night around the supernatural? Plus the black powder from a few episodes back was something he could not cross. I think Grandpa is something supernatural maybe even a wolf and pills prevent the change. If that is the case, then there are going to be major issues within the Argent's. If he had the power to stop Alison's mom from the change and he didn't it will get ugly fast...

I have to say this is one of the best episodes so far. The whole time it kept me on my toes. When Scott's mom saw him turn my heart just broke, but I am looking forward to their conversation next episode about whats going on. To build off of the note to Allison, I don't believe her mother even wrote it. I think Gerard wrote it to get into Allison's head and pull her into what ever his whole plan is. Anyways, why would Allison's mom even want Gerard to read the note. It didn't seem like they were that close and it's not like that is her father. If anyone would read it I would think it would be Allison's dad. Also, what is Peter planning? Is he Scott's alpha again? Can't wait till the next episode and to see how everything is answered

Alison was the weakest bit for me. She's no Buffy, that's for sure and the actress is doing too much of the pouchy lip acting thing this season. Annoying.

Are we going to find out what allison's mother wrote in that letter??

@Rob, I gotta watch it again. Seemed like Victoria took Derek out rather easily because of the wolf bane she was using in the room. Katherine, Gerard has to be something supernatural. Remember he couldn't cross the powder Stiles layer down to keep the Kanima and its master trapped. Also, when Gerard was talking to Allison, did you noticed he had sharp teeth like fangs? A few episodes I noticed that when they showed him close up. Wolf? Vampire? The pills seem to be helping him/preventing him from transforming into something.

This episode was sooooo good! so many possibilities came out of it! Personally I think gerard is something supernatural himself and maybe the pills he used controls it? Scott now kind of working with gerard was surprising but i think the writers were right in doing it!
I don't know I just seem to have this feeling that its Derek who is going to die in the season finale out of the main cast which would realllyyyyyyyy suck :(. But i also don't want any of the new omega's to die either and by the looks of things in episode 2x11 I think one or possibly all of them might (This also sucks cause I was beginning to root for stiles and erica)
Season 2 has been the best so far so I can only imagine what season 3 is going to be like with 24 episodes!

This epi was the best so far this season. So many things were covered and tied together. Love how we finally found out Matt's motivation and why the swim team were his main target. I feel really bad for Allison. Her grandpa is totally manipulating her and using her mom's death to do so. I really hope Derek doesn't completely diss Scott for his betrayal...they really need to work together now that Gerard is the Kanima master. We all know he will be using the Kanima to take out all of the werewolves. I hope Peter Hale steps up and works with Derek to take Gerard out...he may just use Gerard to kill off the other wolves so he is left to be the Alpah. I guess we will see!
I'm still wondering what those freaking pills are for. I'm hoping Scott did take them or at least one so he can find Gerard's weakness...

I hope Derek remembers what Deaton said to him from the beginning. If he had trusted Scott from the beginning and had allowed Scott to trust him he would be a better Alpha and the 16 year old with a hero complex (Derek knows that much about him) might have told him about Gerard's blackmail. i am guessing that it is not a huge issue as the speech about running away derek makes in the previews seems to be to scott. that scene of his mother discovering was so sad...little concerned that when she saw derek & jackson at first she was scared but not what the hell is that...is it weird i felt bad for matt? and jackson..and alison because i kind of suspect gerard altered that note from victoria. i was also pleased to see the combined brain power of stiles and derek at work. anyone else suspect that peter might not be a part of gerad's plan?

Teen Wolf Season 2 Episode 10 Quotes

Mr. Stilinski: Why would this kid want most of the 2006 swim team and its coach dead?
Stiles: Isn't it obvious? Our swim team sucks. They haven't won in like six years.

That's what Jackson's for. I just think about killing them, and he does it.
