The Aug. 4 episode of ‘Teen Wolf’ featured emotions running wild and the spread of a deadly virus!
‘Teen Wolf’ Recap: Sick As A Wolf
Scott’s (Tyler Posey) got a lot of money lying around, but he’s got a million problems to go along with it. Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) warned his BFF that they needed to proceed with caution with the money. They discussed bringing Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) into the situation, but that might mean involving Peter (Ian Bohen) and no one wanted that.
Those Teen Wolf teens are just like normal kids! They prepped to take one of the biggest tests of their lives: The PSATs! (Raise your hand if you hated that test.).
Before the exam, Lydia’s (Holland Roden) mom found Coach Bobby (Orny Adams) zonked out in his office. Mrs. Martin (Susan Walters) thought he had fallen off the wagon again. The test started anyway and Malia, Scott, Kira (Arden Cho) and Stiles opened their booklets to two hours of no fun. With all the big words and equations, Malia understandably freaked out.
The test came to a shocking halt when classmate Sydney looked dizzy and Mrs. Martin rushed to her side. She had a nasty rash on her wrist and Mrs. Martin sealed the room off. She ran to Coach’s office to look for the same rash and it was ALL OVER his back! So gross.
Beacon Hills High became a scene out of Contagion as the whole school was quarantined. Everyone was taking the situation very seriously. No cell phones or wifi. Basically, the apocalypse. The creepy teacher stuck with them made things even weirder by dropping cryptic messages.
Satomi brought a sick pack member for Deaton to check out at the clinic. His shifting was uncontrollable and he looked like straight-up death. Deaton persuaded Satomi to take him to the hospital to Mama McCall (Melissa Ponzio).
Derek came storming into the hospital with Braeden, who revealed that there was a virus designed to kill werewolves going around. Ruh roh.
This was especially serious because Scott had gotten the virus!
Teen Wolf’ Recap: Safe & Sound — Sort Of
Meanwhile, Lydia was still in her panic room. She had set out flowers, a perfume bottle and teddy bear. She called out the Meredith for help, but really wanted to say she was sorry. “I wish i could have helped you,” she sweetly said.
And then, poof! Lydia received a message from Meredith!
Kira’s dad discovered Scott in the bathroom and Scott pleaded with him to fetch Stiles. Scott and Stiles’ lady loves were waiting to get tested for the virus and Malia questioned Kira about their boyfriends keeping things from them. (Oh boy.) Kira avoided the questions at all costs.
Sheriff Stilinski (Linden Ashby), who was now on the scene, realized that the orphans weren’t the only killers in Beacon Hills. Scott and Malia were getting sicker and they couldn’t stay at the high school. The only safe location was the Hale vault! As they figured out how to get there, Stiles lost his balance because he had contracted the virus as well as Kira!
WHAT IS GOING ON!?!
Teen Wolf’ Recap: Keeping Secrets
The only one who could open the Hale vault was, of course, Malia. Before opening, Malia was adamant to know what was being kept from her. (Trust them, Malia. You don’t want to know.) She confessed that she knew she was on the dead pool list.
Once they were somewhat safe in the vault, Stiles stayed by Malia’s side. Stiles was the perfect boyfriend. There was no question about it.
Stiles started talking about the $117 million and how much good it could do. Stiles and Scott both had their money problems and the cash could definitely help ease the pressure off their parents.
Later, Scott and Stiles discussed telling Malia about Peter. Stiles was concerned that Peter wasn’t on the dead pool list. To him, that either meant he was super lucky or The Benefactor. Stiles did NOT want to tell Malia. “If she finds out about him, she’s gone,” Stiles said.
Deaton finally performed an autopsy on the fallen werewolf he tried to treat earlier. His findings showed that it wasn’t good for Scott and the other supernatural kids with the virus. “They are going to die without an antidote,” he said. (NO.WAY.)
Before Stiles left the vault, he had to say goodbye to Malia. He offered her his jacket since she was so cold. (Swoon.)
“You’re coming back, right?” Malia asked.
“Yeah, I’d never leave you behind,” Stiles replied. (Double swoon and a few tears!)
Lydia showed up at the high school and Sheriff Stilinski asked if someone in the school was going to die. “Yes and it’s not just a feeling,” Lydia said.
Teen Wolf’ Recap: Bullet To The Heart
Satomi dropped a bombshell as she was casually talking about Derek’s mother. Deaton realized that the purple tea she drank with Derek’s mom was a powerful remedy for the sickness!
Luckily, the cure was in the vault. Scott, Kira and Malia were right there! However, the trio was slowly dying. When Malia reached into her pocket to pull out the dead pool list, she couldn’t see! Then, Scott started to get blurry vision and Kira went blind.
As Stiles went through an office, the creepy teacher stepped in and revealed he was getting paid by The Benefactor! He aimed his gun at Stiles and threatened to shoot.
The teacher said the virus wouldn’t kill humans. He wanted Stiles to reveal his friends’ location or he would pull the trigger. Stiles bluffed and said they were in the library or cafeteria.
The evil teacher was not playing around. He pointed the gun right at Stiles’ head. (Don’t even think about it. No.) He started a countdown, but thankfully Papa McCall was there to save Stiles’ head. Literally.
There was one more killer out and about, but Satomi pulled a Matrix move and killed the girl at the hospital.
Stiles ran back to the vault and called out to Scott about the antidote. Fans of the Stiles and Scott bromance had to have been heartbroken watching Stiles scream for Scott to save himself.
Scott — being the hero that he is — found the strength to obtain the cure. He broke the jar and it misted into the air. They were saved!
Upon being cured, Stiles ran straight to Malia. He put his hand on her shoulder, but she pushed him off. She walked away from a devastated Stiles. How could anyone leave that face? She had discovered her true identity as Malia Hale and knew Stiles kept it from her.
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of tonight’s Teen Wolf? Are you glad our teens are OK? How about that nasty virus? Are Stiles and Malia broken up for good? Let us know!
