'Teen Wolf' Recap: Did Jackson & Lydia Turn During The Full Moon?

Teen Wolf episode 202

The season’s first full moon led to terrifying transformations for some of Beacon Hills’ residents — and left others bitterly disappointed.

We began the June 4 episode of Teen Wolf with a heartwarming scene between Isaac (Daniel Sharman) and his charmingly abusive father, who literally cut him in the face and told him to shut up about it. Isaac’s dad followed him after he took off into the night and — long story short — he ended up dead at the hands of a mysterious lizard creature. (Personally, I wasn’t saddened by this loss. Not only was the guy a jerk, but he couldn’t even pronounce his son’s name right! “Isai-ick?” Come on, now.)

Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) took a brief break from lurking in the shadows — and grooming his luscious eyebrows, or whatever — to hunt down said lizard creature, and of course he enlisted his favorite hormonal wolf pal Scott (Tyler Posey) to help him out! Their search led them to Isaac’s basement, where they discovered a box that had been used to contain him when he wolfed out. Allison (Crystal Reed) helped Scott use the box to keep himself at bay, but realized she was screwed when the friggin’ lizard creature came at her upstairs!

Cue Scott escaping. Cue Scott saving the day. Cue creepy lizard friend slithering off into the shadows. Cue me having several simultaneous heart attacks.

So now we’re left with one question: What the f**k was the creature that attacked Allison, and who is it in human form? (OK, fine, that’s technically two questions.) And as much as pains me to say this, judging by the familiar shriek the creature let out as it ran away, I’m inclined to guess that it’s none other than Lydia (Holland Roden). If only I could have gotten a good look at its lips — then I’d know for sure!

Meanwhile, Jackson (Colton Haynes) was super bummed to discover that his body did, in fact, reject Derek’s wolf bite. But it wasn’t a total loss for the audience, as Jackson had his really great pre-transformation ritual that basically involved him flexing shirtless for… well, I don’t really know how long it was for. But I do know I nearly broke the pause, rewind and play buttons on my remote.

OK, gimme all your thoughts: Do you think this means Jackson really isn’t a werewolf? Are you assuming Lydia is the lizard creature who attacked Allison? And, seriously, can we give a round of applause to the wardrobe department for taking the week off?

i believe the kanama is going to be both jackson and lydia because jackson didnt pass the test and lydia did so that meens the venum was from lydia meaning it would work on jackson we already know its jackson because of the last episode but that doesnt explain the whole venum thing and if you look through the episodes it looks different at some points

It is Jackson! From leaked internet and editors information it says it is jackson if you all wan’t to be sure from yourselfs just compare the eyes of thes two photos http://teenwolf.wikia.com/wiki/Jackson_Whittemore and http://www.google.com.pr/imgres?um=1&hl=es&sa=N&biw=1366&bih=667&tbm=isch&tbnid=8FpCZ6jBB5scZM:&imgrefurl=http://www.buddytv.com/&docid=IeTOKFNoTBTxsM&imgurl=http://images.buddytv.com/articles/TW-KanimaTheories.jpg&w=500&h=333&ei=5vPiT9S8L4ee8QSQhaCICA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=185&vpy=320&dur=2104&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=127&ty=58&sig=114960553703826240207&page=1&tbnh=147&tbnw=205&start=0&ndsp=15&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:0,i:89. He was also scared when he saw his reflection on the truck and was strong enough to pull it. He also had nightmares and alusinations of the claw from the kanima coming out of his nose in the bathroom in season 1. He also bleeds in his nose and derek said that it was a werewolf failure so thats why he bleeds from his nose because he is the abomination. His wolf bite also healed so hes got to be something and the camera was missing 2 hours of footage and when stalinsky* was holding derek on the pool he said he was there holding him for two hours. OK IN MY OPINION I THINK THAT THIS SERIES AND THE WALKING DEAD ARE THE BEST SERIES YET ON THE WORLD.! keep watching it and tell others about it thanks by. sadoc567

the Lizard mystery narrowed down to 2 people: Lydia or Jackson. Why it might be Lydia:The Kanima Ran away scared when it saw it’s reflection. Lydia sheets were bloody so were her knuckles because she punched the mirror. why did she punch the mirror? she came home as the lizard and saw her reflection. that was alot of blood to just be bloody knuckles.Why it’s jackson: HE LIFTED UP A FRICKEN 2 TON TRUCK! plus the 2 hours missing on the camera . . .mind Boggling right? .personaly i think it’s 2 creature. it’s possible.

Could be Lydia: Out of the hospital and the weirdness started.Smashed the mirror’ sheets covered in an awful lotta blood for bloody knuckles.

Could be jackson: 2 hours missing from his personal video, and his strength with the car

i think its both lydia and jackson and they think its one when theres 2 of them running around because lydia is see the old alpha and can heal really quick and jackson is really strong when he picked his car up.

I think it’s Lydia, she was at the school when the lizard thing attacked Derek and Stiles, stiles said there was something familiar about the eyes, and also when the lizard saw its reflection it kinda seemed…disgusted..something that can be expected from Lydia. I’d be soo sad if it was Lydia though, cause then they’d have to kill her ): Hopefully its not!
