'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Alpha Is Finally Revealed! Did You Guess Him Right?

Tue, July 26, 2011 12:02am EST by 7 Comments

There are only three episodes left this season! Let’s hope they’re all as good as tonight’s…

If you missed the July 25 episode of MTV’s Teen Wolf, you missed the most mind-blowing episode of the season — and no, I’m not just talking about the amount of gratuitous shirtless-ness, courtesy of one Tyler Hoechlin. In this one episode alone, Jackson (Colton Haynes) figured out Scott‘s (Tyler Posey) big secret; Scott learned about Allison’s (Crystal Reed) family of werewolf hunters;  and, oh yeah, the freakin’ Alpha was freakin’ revealed!

But let’s backtrack a bit…

Just when I was starting to like Jackson, he decided to revert back to full-on douche bag mode during this week’s episode. Thanks to the wolf scratch he suffered a few episodes back, Jackson is now privy to a lot of new information — including the fact that Scott is really a werewolf! So he spent the hour messing with Scott’s head, threatening to ruin any chance he had with Allison unless he helps him become a werewolf, too.

That was Jackson’s first big mistake. His second was breaking up with Lydia (Holland Roden) in the middle of the hallway. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and I’m sure that’s twice as true for someone as genuinely crazy-pants as Lydia.

Meanwhile, Scott spent the episode moping around and trying to win Allison back. Unfortunately, his apology backfired, and now Allison wants nothing to do with him. So he decided to go with Plan B: Break into Allison’s house and steal her necklace! Per Derek’s request, of course.

As if all that wasn’t enough, the final 10 minutes of the episode came along to totally blow what was left of my mind. It was revealed that the Alpha Wolf is none other than Derek’s uncle, Peter Hale! You know, the super-quiet burn victim-y fella from the hospital? Apparently that was all an elaborate cover. Not only is he not an immobile burn victim, but he’s actually quite handsome — and a total serial killer.

To cap things off, Allison’s family now has its sight set on Jackson. After seeing his neck marks at the lacrosse game, they’re pretty sure he‘s the real Beta Wolf.

Oh, well. At least Stiles is off the hook!

I started watching this series not expecting much. But the idiocy of some characters and the plot has reached point where I can’t just ignore it. I don’t know if Jackson was genuinely interested in Allison but there definitely was a part of him wanting to piss off Scott as a motivating factor for getting friendly with Allison.
My main question – WHY DIDN’T SCOTT JUST ACT LIKE HE HAD NO CLUE WHAT JACKSON WAS TALKING ABOUT? He gave in so quickly. I feel like it’s an explanation for perhaps a future alliance between the two boys albeit a HORRIBLE one.
Scott’s an idiot half the time and it irritates me. This

He did a little research at the hospital, but I think the scratch is giving him some kind of crazy knowledge, too.

Jackson had suspension that something was strange about Scott being super human like on the lacross field and found Scotts glove after the first game and kept it cause of the holes in the fingers. Later Scott freaks when he sees Allison and Jackoson in the car togather and jumps on the car but Derrik tackles him leaving a claw behind. jackson finds it and puts it and the glove togather.
