Plus, Scott comes clean about his killer urges! Run, Stiles, run!
Those of you hoping for a low-key, laid-back hour of MTV’s Teen Wolf were probably disappointed with the July 11 episode, which found our fave five trapped in the school and fighting for their lives against the terrifying — yet, sort of undeniably cheesy — Alpha Wolf. And while almost everybody made it out alive — still no sign of busy-browed Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) — we learned a shocking secret about Scott (Tyler Posey) that literally changes everything.
The episode picked up right where last week’s left off, with Scott and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) seeking shelter from the wolf in Beacon Falls High. But it didn’t take long for the rest of the Scooby gang — Allison (Crystal Reed), Jackson (Colton Haynes) and Lydia (Holland Roden) — to join the fun.
Lydia proved surprisingly useful, putting her chemistry skills to work and whipping up a Molotov cocktail. Unfortunately Scott realized a little too late that he grabbed the wrong concoction when he threw the cocktail at the Alpha Wolf… and it didn’t go boom. Instead, the Alpha pounced on Scott and emitted a terrifying howl, which somehow also affected Jackson via the scratch Derek left on his neck. Then the Alpha took off, leaving everyone more than a little confused.
At the end of the episode, Scott dropped a bomb on Stiles — and this one did go boom: Not only does the Alpha want to keep Scott alive, but he also wants Scott to kill his “old pack” (aka Stiles, Lydia, Jackson and Allison!) And what’s worse? Scott confessed to actually wanting to do it when he shifted into wolf-mode. This brought Stiles to tears, and I could literally hear the hearts breaking all the way up and down the east coast.
The heartbreak continued as Allison told Scott she couldn’t trust him anymore, and judging by all the flirty behavior between her and Jackson this week, something tells me she won’t be single for much longer.
