Teen Wolf Review: What Revelations?!

at .  Updated at . Comments

Another wasted hour.

We're driving toward the finale, and with Teen Wolf Season 4 Episode 11 we got no answers again. If you love action without purpose, then this was the hour for you.

It was difficult not to feel for Liam as he saw Beserkers everywhere. WE were seeing Beserkers everywhere. The entire episode was like a waiting game for the poor kid to wake up in a nightmare.

Liam was working out to excess, not sleeping and everywhere seeing the Beserker. Mason was a really great friend and tried to help out, but when the dude is seeing monsters everywhere he goes, it's a little difficult to draw back.

Liam got a lesson from his opponent on how lucky he is to have a True Alpha in his life, but Liam just wonders why Scott isn't there for him. Imagine his surprise when his Alpha attacks as a Beserker. Oh. My. God. If he doesn't end up in Eichen House, the kid has huge stones!

Let's be honest, bringing back Kate was a huge mistake. She's over-the-top worthless. She doesn't evoke any fear whatsoever. She's a pain in the ass, yes, but not much more. I couldn't have been more happy to know Peter (dastardly as he is -- all kinds of wrong what he did to Argent) wanted Malia to kill Kate. 

I admit it. I always agree with Peter. 

Melissa found Scott's bag o' money and convinced him to return it. The key was when she wanted to know how he'd spend the stack of blood money. It's hard to answer that without looking like an ass. From that came my favorite moment of the hour, when Scott returned the money to Derek and he said it was Peters.

Scott: Where's your money?
Derek: You're standing on it.
Scott: There's another vault?!
Derek: [laughs] I own the building.

Poor Derek. He must wonder how things could have gone so terribly wrong that his not only his Alpha status but his being as a wolf were stripped from him for this stupid kid. God love Scott, but he really needs to think before he speaks. It's like he's been taking lessons from Stiles.

Derek owning that building came in handy for Scott when he used one of the empty lofts to romance Kira. It was short-lived however, when it was interrupted by the useless Kate and the Beserker. I'm really not sure why True Alpha Scott isn't a match for were-Kate. It's rather concerning.

That said, Scott and Kira's first date kind of sucked in the end, right? But before that fateful moment, I had to wonder -- why hasn't Derek given the kids one of those lofts to use as a lair? That would be pretty awesome. Maybe he just doesn't want a bunch of kids around. But really -- they could have a place to get it on without worrying about parents and they'd be off the streets. C'mon Derek!

How adorable was Parrish trying to help Argent? Especially because we learned that Lydia and he have been sharing information. Parrish pumping up Argent to help him free himself was just very Teen Wolf. We still don't know what kind of supernatural Parrish is, but his eyes blazed red while he was working with Argent, although he didn't seem to have any super strength. Any more thoughts on what he is?

So what was the beginning with Deaton? Did he see in that dude's third eye what will happen with Scott as a Beserker (groan)? Will he be the shortest Beserker or does becoming one increase his height?

Why did Lydia show up at Derek's and Banshee out? Could Derek have any more screams predicting his death?

Are we going to find out that Kate is Malia's mother? Is she the desert wolf? Doesn't it seem too simple for Peter to turn on Kate at the same moment he learns who Malia's mom is and asks her to kill her?

Kate's portrayer said this installment was all about revelations. What revelations?! I'm sure you're all dying to tell me how wrong I am. Do it, but share facts, too, will ya? They're really the best part of a comment, me thinks.
