Raise your hand if you’re sobbing. The season 6 premiere of ‘Teen Wolf’ was a fantastic and heartbreaking episode from start to finish. A new enemy erased Stiles from everyone’s memories, but not before Stiles got to tell Lydia three very important words.
The final season starts off with Liam and Hayden’s date night. It doesn’t exactly go as planned. They’re stranded on the side of the road after Liam’s car breaks down. They may not be snuggling at the movies or canoodling over a candlelit dinner, but Liam and Hayden make the best of a bad situation.
But because this is Beacon Hills, trouble is lurking everywhere. They see a car rolling across the way, and they’re hoping the driver has a spare. Something’s not right, though. There’s no one driving the car. The entire windshield has been blown out. It’s creepy as hell. When Liam goes to turn off the car, he notices a kid in the backseat. “Don’t let them take me,” the kid says to them. “Don’t let them take me, too.”
Meanwhile, Scott and Stiles are off causing Sheriff Stilinski a lot of trouble. The boys have been trying to keep up their hero status in Beacon Hills, but everything is normal now. Scott comes to the realization that maybe Beacon Hills doesn’t need the pack anymore, but Stiles is confident that’s not the case.
Graduation is right around the corner for Stiles and Scott, and that means college. They’re going to have to leave Beacon Hills at some point and move on. Stiles doesn’t want to think about a Beacon Hills where the whole pack isn’t around. “Beacon Hills would burn to the ground without us,” he says.
Just when Stiles is starting to come around to what Scott’s saying, Sheriff Stilinski calls. He needs Scott to read Alex’s memory to find out where his parents are. What Scott sees is just a normal family outing, until Alex and his parents come to a screeching halt when they see a man on a horse in the middle of the road. The man fires a shot at the car and grabs Alex’s mom and dad
Scott and Stiles enlist Lydia to go sniffing around the car where Alex’s parents were taken. Malia shows up and gives everyone a front row seat to her naked bod until Lydia gives her clothes. Lydia and Malia argue over whether or not the parents are alive.
Stiles is hoping with bated breath that the disappearances have something to do with the supernatural. It’s been 3 months since anything has happened, and apparently, Stiles has been grabbing Lydia out of bed every night to check things out. OMG! Stiles knows something strange is happening. He just can’t put his finger on what it is.
Graduation is on the horizon, so that means PICTURES! Stiles adorably interrupts Malia’s photo session, before dragging her off to the pack’s table. Malia thinks Stiles is trying to ruin her yearbook photo because he hasn’t signed up for his yet. Stiles swears he has, but when he looks at the sign-up sheet, it’s blank. Hmmm…
Stiles got the latest on Alex’s case and wants to head out in the middle of the day. Malia and Lydia aren’t interested, and Scott can’t afford to miss any more days. Stiles says he’ll take Liam, but he’s too busy making out with Hayden.
Sheriff Stilinski finds Alex in a cell. Alex begs for Sheriff Stilinski to lock him in. Over at the school, Lydia feels off. When she touches the TV in the classroom, lightning strikes and knocks her back. But it was just a dream. She wakes up in an empty classroom. Stiles and Scott go to Alex’s house and finds it completely abandoned.
Every room in the house is empty, except for Alex’s room. It looks like a normal teenager’s room. Stiles notices that all pictures of Alex are of him alone. A #1 Dad frame features only Alex. Stiles sees a breeze blow under the bed. When he looks underneath, he sees a horse’s hooves. When he looks up, nothing’s there.
Liam and Mason show up at the house after following Mr. Douglas’ compass there. Stiles runs outside Alex’s room and sees the shadowed man that took Alex’s parents away. The man takes his gun and fires off round at Stiles. Thankfully, he misses. Stiles realizes that this man isn’t just taking people away, he’s erasing them. When he goes back to look at Alex’s room, everything is missing.
Lydia helps Stiles figure out that this man is a Ghost Rider, part of the Wild Hunt. Stiles is so happy he kisses Lydia on the cheek! I’m officially dead.
Stiles and Scott find that Alex is gone. They think Liam and Hayden are next. Before Stiles and Scott split up, Stiles tries to tell Scott something, but he stumbles for words.
Mrs. Martin doesn’t know who Stiles is, and neither do Liam, Hayden, and Mason. It all comes together for Stiles. Liam and Hayden aren’t in danger. He is. Stiles runs up to his father, and Sheriff Stilinksi doesn’t know who he is either. Stiles is shocked and confused. Everyone has forgotten who Stiles is. His memory has been completely erased. The only one who remembers now is… LYDIA.
Stiles and Lydia find each other. Stiles is the only one who can see the Ghost Riders. If Lydia sees them, she’ll be next. When Stiles and Lydia get in his car and become surrounded by the Ghost Riders, he realizes it’s over. He can’t get away.
He turns to Lydia and says, “You’re going to forget me.” She replies, “I won’t.” He pleads with her to find a way to remember him. “Remember I love you,” he says, right before he’s taken away by the Ghost Riders. The next day, Lydia walks into school and everything seems normal. But it’s not. Someone is missing. Stiles is missing.
*There’s a hot new teacher, Mr. Douglas, who is causing all the girls to drool. He’s probably a psychopath.
*Someone’s watching Liam, Hayden, and Mason. My bet is on the hot teacher.
