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

Mon, June 4, 2012 11:00pm EDT by 110 Comments
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?

so what im thinking is that jackson or eithier lydia is the lizard creature aka (kamina) because one lydia did get bit by peter previous alpha but in a later episode we see jackson lift his pick up truck 4-6 fet in the air with no struggle now lydia is never around when the creature attacks but it didnt attck allison so eithier its jackson lydia or the photographer boy icause remember it didnt attck alliso nthat boy has it in for allison lydia is allisons best friend and jackson had a thing for allison before but the kamina does not transform during full moons so i dont think its lydia i think its jacksoon or the photographer boy that has it in for allison remember the Kamina walked towards allison last time

I know it is NOT Alyson’s grandpa because he was eating dinner with scott and his family, while the lizard was attacking Derek and stiles.  
Obviously we all suspect it’s Lydia, but isn’t that to obvious? In season 1 someone helped out the uncle to keep his secret, so someone is helping the lizard out, maybe. 
It probably can be Jackson because in season one, Derek was sick because of the bullet that was shot in his arm and was killing him and went to the school to look for Scott and asked JACKSON if he saw him, Derek got irritated of Jackson and stuck a nail in the back of Jackson’s neck and since then he has been acting strange. I remember he was looking in the Mirror in the locker room and he saw GREEN SCALY CLAWS coming out of his mouth. Idk about you but they seemed exactly like the claws of the Lizard in the show now. He can’t be turn into a wolf because he is immune to it because of Lydia, he is also adopted so maybe his actual parents have something to do with this. But the lizard doesn’t know how to swim and Jackson does.
It might be the camera man because he has a crush with Alyson so when Alyson confronted the lizard it didn’t attack her and when she left from the hale house the lizard was there and killed the hunter. Every episode he comes out the lizard comes out. But it doesn’t change the fact that he is the camera guy and the lizard doesn’t know who it is so when Scott picked up the glass to attack it with it, the lizard ran away. So camera guy is the lizard but the lizard doesn’t like to see its reflection.
It is said that the lizard is a karmina. In south America, a karmina kills people who murder. It attacked Derek because he is turning people to killers, it killed the hunter because it’s a killer, thats why it can’t be the grandpa.

Okay so for everyone who thinks the lizard is the grandpa is clearly not watching the show. He was eating dinner while the lizard was attacking stiles and derek. I think the lizard is Lydia but then again that’s too obvious but maybe that’s the point. We’ll find out next episode

Perhaps the lacross player … They called him the abomination and when the lizard seen itself in the mirror by the pool they said it was an abomination. Dunno.

I think the lizard could be the boy that lydia was talking to when she was waiting at the councelors . Or the photographer

You guy’s forget that Lydia scratched Jackson. So she made him immune to werewolf blood, not his background or the wolf bane. Lydia is to obvious and Jackson had a camera on him on the night of the full moon when the lizard attacked Allison, so it could not be him either. I bet the lizard thing is going to be someone we will never suspect, kind of like season 1’s alpha.

In the official trailor, they said the lizard was a type of shape-shifter, so it could really be anyone. If I had to give a guess, I’d say it’s the photographer. He’s acting pretty scetchy. He took numerous pictures of Allison and the hunters at Kate’s funeral. He even went to the extent of crossing over the police line to do so. Matt (photographer) clearly has some romantic interest in Allison, and when he leant the camera to Jackson, he looked across the street to Issac’s house, where he noticed a light on. Maybe he went to investigate and saw Allison, his crush, and couldn’t contain himself from shifting into lizard form.

Honestly, I can’t believe none of you have brought up Peter Hale. In “Ice Pick” , someone with badly burned feet was in the bathroom with her before hurrying out. She follwed them , where they stopped at a trophy case. From the back, it looks like like peter hale. When lydia was in the shower, someone with a lot of brown hair and burned skin grabbed her. It was Peter , back from the dead. Plus, when he left and lydia went to the trophy case to see what he was looking at, he was looking at a old trophy that said peter hale. Come on guys, peter was the only one burned .He had burned feet.Also, lydia thought she saw him under the ice. I can’t believe NONE OF YOU have guessed him yet. I think peter was way powerful than anyone thought, and has the power to come back from the dead, as well as shape-shift.

I think this is truly stupid, have you not have come to notice that Peter Hale is in-fact DEAD. Not alive but truly DEAD. Any way it comes that, in high evidence, that Matt the photographer has a higher possibility even Jackson or even Lydia but definitely not Peter.

i think it is the grandfather of allison, because when she locked up scott in the basement because of the full moon she returned upstairs to confront the creature. I believe the creature could of easily took down scott and allison. but the creature wouldn’t harm his flesh and blood so it has to be the grandfather. plus no lizard attacks happened until he showed up

The lizard creature is between the Grandpa, Jackson and Lydia. The grandpa because he takes medicine often so if he isnt the lizard he is a diffrent creature because hes hiding something. It might be Jackson because he didnt change into a werewolf but was still bitten, tho if you noticed in the most recent episode the camera lense was broken so he probably did change…just not into a werewolf. and Lydia ofcourse is the most suspicious of all, but she seems too obvious to be it because everyone suspects that.

I agree w/u 100% for the reasons you stated . it’s either grandpa argent or jackson as the lizard. Jackson is adopted, so maybe there’s something in his real family that’s supernatural, which is why the bite didn’t change him/his body was rejecting it. And if the grandfather is not the lizard, then he’s DEF something else bc he’s trying to keep something from the rest of the family.

If we’ve learned anything from the first season, it may not be a person that is prominently displayed that is the lizard creature. We only got to see a small portion of Peter Hale before learning he was the Alpha. My guesses would be Dr. Deaton (the Vet) or as crazy as it may sounds…Victoria Argent (Allison’s Mom). She’s a bit looney for me.

are half of you ignorant, the only logical thing i have seen posted as a comment here is the camera guy how does rejecting a wolf bite make you a lizard. i have no idea why anyone thinks its the grandfather, considering he killed a werewolf hunter. and isaacs dad had no idea he was a werewolf, the box was just a way of parental abuse

OH, last thing. Jackson could have heard the howls and such because he WAS bitten. He may have rejected the bite, but he still has the wolf-stuff going through his veins, so he has a connection with the other wolves. He recorded himself sleeping, i’m pretty sure he would have noticed himself waking up and turning into a lizard and killing people, then coming home, getting the blood off of himself, and putting pants on and getting comfortably back into bed. I’ve made my points. :b

I think it’s definately the photographer or even the teacher, mr harris. It can’t be lydia (Even though she is SOMETHING) or jackson. If one of the wolf-bitten characters turns into a lizard, the show loses my respect. The teacher knows about wolves and weird creatures as we saw last season, so he might be something. But my money’s on the new photographer. He’s a new character that they gave a lot of camera time to. I don’t think they would have given him that much camera time if he didn’t become important later on. My last point is that i really don’t think that creature is a girl.. at all. I wanna see erica turn into a wolf, the show’s first girl wolf! can’t wait til tonight!

i dont know if its just me or not. but in the beginning of this new season, the first half of the show began of having jackson in like a swamp theme. i was thinking maybe when derek bit jackson to turn him into the werewold he wanted to be, when jackson was in the swamp, there could be a possility some how that a swamp thing got into his wound and is starting to turn jackson into the lizard creature that we saw.

At first I thought it would be a creature similar to the black lagoon kinda theme which would be fitting. But after seeing it hop on the ceiling and crawl like a video game character out of the 80s, I’m not digging the similarities to the spiderman villain creature.

i have to disagree see in part two of the seaon two premire of teen wolf lydia returns emerging from the forest in front of where a man in the ambulance was killed when lydias walking you can clearly see her arms are hairy but then sudenly change to smooth the snake creature also has male pectorals as you can see when he crawls on the ceiling i personally believe that it is none other than jacksonn we all know werewolves respond to other wolves howls what we dont know is if this reptile creature can or cant what we do know is jackson isnt a werewolf so why did he respond to the alphas howl in season 1 when they were locked in the school also jackson rejected the bite but did not die something derek hale cant even explain and he was born into the curse when you are bit you either die or become a werewolf scott determined lydia was not a werewolf by his sense of smell but watch the episodes over scotts senses arent that good and in fact have been wrong before. i also think it cant be the chem teacher because theres been nothing to hint hiom off when scott turned he was a sucky werewolf which is the same for isacc he has a lack of skill so i assume it would be the same thing for this mysterious creature he has extreme skill and is alot more powerful than scott i assume this creature has had this power for a while the chem tacher cant be the creature because when confroted the previpus alpha he got scared and did nothing also most likely he is going to change with anger hes a teacher he is always mad at stiles but doesnt change i think its either jackson or even the veternarian the vet had magic to block off the alpha in season 1 he knew about werewolves and derek sensed that he was lieng about knowing of something of the supernatural jackson and the vet are most likey the reptillian

Jaclson didnt turn into anything. He had a camera on him the whole night. And lydia didnt kill the man in the ambulance. He was already dead and the omega was feeding off him. And it wasnt magic that kept the alpha away in season 1 it was mountain ash. The vet told scott that he is only a vet to pets 90% of the time so its implied that he is like a werewolf docter. So its not the vet. In the trailer for season 2 he says that he doesnt know what it is but whatever it is its only intinct is to kill.

Yep, I’m down to the Vet, Grandpa, Allisons mom, teacher, or photographer. Probably not the vet, because of your comment, not related to Allison because the Lizardman killed a hunter. Down to teacher or photographer unless these clues are just to throw us off. Not peter hale, but lydia still sees him because she is the last one he bit. I’m ready to see the zamboni driver turn into a black wolf…lol

This actually makes alot of sense when i think about it..
Because derrick seemed kind of freaked out when he saw jackson`s body fighting the bite..It could be.
But instead my guess would have to be between jackson and lydia.

It’s the chemistry teacher because if it were any other there would have to have been an original creature to bite them and since there is only one lizard then it must be the chem teacher.
