Man, I've missed Stiles.
On Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 10, Stiles returned, and all was right with the world.
Okay, so the Wild Hunt was still going on, so everything wasn't really fixed, but Stiles was back! Hooray!
We got to see him reunite with his brother, Scott, his father, and Lydia, the woman he loves.
All those reunions were perfect. Stiles and Liam's reunion was also so them; it was perfect.
My only issue is that we didn't get to see Stiles and Malia's reunion.
We have seen how much of an impact Stiles had on Malia's life, and yet, they were not allowed a moment of their own during this finale.
Also, what was with the Stiles and "Claudia" reunion? It was all sorts of no.
It did not make any sense. Lydia said that the Wild Hunt created Claudia from Noah's pain, but how does that explain her coming back to fight Stiles?
Honestly, my head hurts just trying to understand what the hell happened there.
As much as I love Stiles and Lydia, it was great that Stiles and Scott teamed up again to try to fight off the Ghost Riders.
Their friendship is the first thing that hooks you into the show.
Scott and Stiles are the heart of it all, and so it was great to spend more time with the two of them fighting bad guys.
Scott: You want to split up?
Stiles: Never again.
Scott: Thank god.
The majority of the hour, however, is not all that thrilling.
Aside from the joy of seeing Stiles reunite with everyone, the hour is the same has it's been for the past couple weeks now.
Fight Ghost Riders. Get Taken. Come back. Fight Ghost Riders again.
Also, it must really suck to be Parrish. He's always under someone's control as the hellhound.
He should really work on some self defense to prevent him from being manipulated like that.
You actually do not have to watch the TV to follow along with what's happening.
The only thing that changed was that we saw a bit more characters working together in various train stations.
There were also train tracks in exciting new places, but all in all, it was nothing all that new.
Mr. Douglas was also an awful bad guy. There was never a need to throw a Nazi in with the Wild Hunt. The Ghost Riders were scary enough.
Granted, it is a little weird that all that had to be done to defeat them, after remembering people and figuring out what was going on, was divert the train...
It would have been nice if the Ghost Rider portion was cut short, so that more time could have been spend on everyone settling back into their lives.
Stiles: I can't believe I'm gone a couple days and the whole place falls apart.
Scott: No you were gone for three months.
Stiles: I was, what? Okay if they don't let me graduate, I swear to god.
Seeing as how we rarely spent time in school, it was not surprising that we did not get to see the pack graduate.
Still, it would have been nice to see a little bit more of the pack's final summer together before everyone went off to college.
It could have been as simple as everyone hanging out together before Lydia and Stiles headed out.
We could have also seen Lydia and Stiles say their goodbyes to everyone. A little bit more of happiness would have been lovely.
Don't get me wrong, Stiles giving his speech to Liam and handing Mason a bat was awesome.
It was a very Stiles thing to do, and it was an all around great scene.
Stiles: Okay, so Liam, since you're the new Alpha.
Liam: I'm not an alpha.
Stiles: Right, but, you know, alpha in training.
Liam: Well I'd have to kill an alpha.
Stiles: Liam, since you are taking over, the most important thing you can remember is that Mason is always going to be the one who is there to save your ass all the time.
Scott: Not all the time.
Stiles: Most of the time. Which is why, I think think you are going to need this.
[Stiles gives Mason a baseball bat]
Mason: I don't play baseball.
Stiles: Right, neither do I. It's not the point.
The final 10 episodes of Teen Wolf will air this summer.
Based on this finale, it does not look like Stiles will be in the majority of them (if any of them), which makes sense considering Dylan's injury.
The question is, will Lydia? She's going to MIT, so it makes sense that she wouldn't be in the final ten.
What do you think?
What did you think of the midseason finale?
Did it give Stiles a proper send off?
