Teen Wolf Season 5 Episode 8 Review: Ouroboros

at .  Updated at . Comments

For a bad guy, Theo's got a thing for being the hero.

On Teen Wolf Season 5 Episode 8, while Scott panicked over not being able to find Liam and Hayden in time, Theo got the job done.

He could have maybe called Scott to let him know where Liam and Hayden were being held, but that would have just ruined the hero moment. It's much more awesome to rescue people all by yourself than to have back up.

Maybe this is what Theo wanted all along – to be a hero and to have people adore him like they adore Scott. Teaming up with the Dread Doctors is an odd way to go about it, but right now, it's my best theory. Theo's going to have to fix that "too perfect to be anything but evil hair" he has going on, though, if he wants to be a good guy.

Also, it looked like Scott may suspect him now. He was giving Theo a look whenever he was going around getting congratulatory hugs for rescuing Liam and Hayden. Do you think Scott is on to Theo?

We spent a lot of time with Liam and Hayden in captivity. Aside from watching them be adorable, we didn't actually learn anything. Their chat with fellow captive Zack only told us things we already knew. Why bother wasting time introducing a chimera if he isn't going to be useful? It's Episode 8, and we still don't know much of anything about the Dread Doctors. This is getting ridiculous.

Nothing good can happen from the parents fighting. Melissa wasn't too happy with Sheriff's insistence to follow the rules. To be fair, it must be difficult to be the sheriff and constantly have to skirt the law. Both of them make good points.

The supernatural requires a little law breaking, but there has to be a point where the law must come in. Did Sheriff Stilinski make the right call in reporting the murder?

Sheriff: Melissa, I've set my badge aside a few too many times in the last couple weeks.
Melissa: Well, you may need to do it a few more considering what our kids get in to in their free time.

Well, it's kinda hard to prosecute without a body. Parrish managed to get past multiple cops to get the body out of the hospital, but he didn't do it all that secretly. His little dead eye performance hopefully clued Sheriff into the fact that there's something up with him.

If not, well then Stiles figured it out. See, look at this progress we've made. Now that the pack knows about Parrish, we can get answers. This storyline is progressing so much better than the Dread Doctor/Theo nightmare.

After getting out of an arrest, Kira figured it was time to leave Beacon Hills. Thanks to some speedy backwards reading, Kira remembered that the Dread Doctors did something to her. They stuck a needle in her eye, and then lightning hit it. Talk about ouch.

There really wasn't any explanation as to why she had to leave other than she thought that she couldn't figure it out in Beacon Hills, and she didn't want to hurt anyone else.

It would have been better if Kira's mom had shared some wisdom or knowledge of a person who could help Kira. This would have made it seem like Kira and her family were headed towards someone or something that could be helpful. Instead, it just looks like they are running out of town. Most likely we won't get to see what Kira gets up to in her time away from Beacon Hills, which is a shame. There's still so much we don't know about kitsunes.

Something's different with me and my friends, all of us. Something's changed. I think it is because of me, and I don't know how to fix it.

Deaton has returned! Too bad he was only back for like five minutes, and we didn't really find out what he discovered about the Dread Doctors.

On the bright side, it's nice to know someone is actually investigating them. The pack is constantly fighting them, so there's not a whole lot of investigative work that happens. Maybe Deaton will be the one to finally give us answers.

Oh, Deaton also met Malia's mom, the Desert Wolf. She's lovely, and wants to meet her daughter so she can kill her. You know what would have been great?

A hint as to why she wants Malia dead. We already knew that she was behind the car crash, so her wanting to kill Malia isn't exactly news.

It's not like she accidentally caused the crash or anything. She stood in the road and shot the car her daughter was in. Is she working with the Dread Doctors? Why was she in the same place as Deaton?

All of these would have been great questions to have answered. Do you have any theories?
