Teen Wolf Season 3, Episode 20: "Echo House" Recap/Review

Image
Um, so can I just say, WHAT. THE. FUCK. WAS. THAT. EPISODE?

I was not at all prepared for how absolutely mind-fucky things got with regard to Stiles, and judging by the end-of-season trailer that aired during Wolf Watch, we are DEFINITELY not at all prepared for what's coming, either. EVERYTHING IS SO TERRIBLE. So, I'm just gonna stop summarizing and just get right into what happened, and what everything means, okay? Let's talk "Echo House!"

Just a warning to anyone reading this who HASN'T seen the episode--it's pretty disturbing, so much so that they put a warning at the beginning for the first time ever, which reads, "Due to the mature theme of this episode, viewer discretion is advised." So, if you are easily triggered by seeing television characters commit suicide (none of the important characters, though!), prescription medication abuse, and/or stereotypical and incorrect portrayals of how mental health centers are run, this might not be th…

Teen Wolf Season 3, Episode 19: "Letharia Vulpina" Recap/Review

Man, was this episode a rollercoaster, or what? Although, it's not like that isn't what we've come to expect from this show. I mean, "Letharia Vulpina" was kind of unintentionally hilarious in the way that it was mostly everyone running around hysterically, trying to figure out what the fuck Stiles had been up to for the last two days, but that doesn't mean that it didn't pack some emotional punch, too! Plus, there were plenty of entertaining bits to go around. It was pretty sweet to see Deaton getting his hands dirty for once, Kira exploring her new powers was a joy to behold, watching Allison and Lydia antagonize Peter gave me SO MUCH LIFE, and I think I unintentionally started shipping Chris and Derek on accident. Is that wrong?

The most intense parts for me was watching Scott and Allison visit Isaac, because I can't stand to see my bb hurt, and the last scene with Scott and Stiles. Seriously, Kathleen and I were talking about it, and it literally …

Teen Wolf Season 3, Episode 18: "Riddled" Recap/Review

Image
Man, this episode of Teen Wolf was seriously an intense hour of television. From the very first phone call Stiles made to Scott, to the last exchange with Kira's mom, I was literally buzzing with fear and anxiety, in the best way possible! It was a mindfuck, that's for sure, although that seems to be par for the course where Season 3B is concerned. So yeah, "Riddled" was another amazing episode in a long series of amazing episodes this season, and I'm not going to waste any more time summarizing when I could be talking about it!

Previously, on Teen Wolf: Kira learned that she's a kitsune, a werefox who has the ability to create fire/lightning bolts called "foxfire." Lydia's banshee powers started revealing themselves even stronger in the form of auditory hallucinations, and Stiles assured her that her instincts have been dead-on ever since they realized she was supernatural. Stiles has been dealing with a ton of negative symptoms that may or may …

The Originals Season 1, Episode 13: "Crescent City" Recap/Review

Image
Man, I never expected that I would eventually grow to enjoy The Originals over The Vampire Diaries, but here we are, halfway through TO's first season, and I am totally hooked. I've been super intrigued by the new werewolf story line that has been developing over the last dozen episodes, between Hayley and her miracle devilspawn and Klaus' biological father's werewolf clan, and this episode definitely has me asking TONS of questions! Also, we finally got an answer regarding Hayley being pregnant and what happens to her during full moons now, so that was cool.

So yeah, basically, this episode was an awesome addition to what is shaping up to be an amazing season, so settle in, gentle readers, and let's talk about "Crescent City!"

Previously, on The Originals: The Mikaelsons used to rule New Orleans, once upon a time, so Klaus decided he wanted it back for himself. Elijah learned that his former lover Celeste, whom everyone thought died two hundred years ago,…
