Teen Wolf - 3.07 - Currents - Recap
Previously - Derek and EDT hooked up, mountain ash was powerful, Deucalion killed Elevator Alpha and blamed Derek, Shoeless swore revenge, and Argent used electricity as werewolf deterrent.
A 10-car pileup has the hospital where Melissa McCall works overloaded and the one ER doctor on duty (say what?) is missing. Again, missing generally = dead on Beacon Hills and in this case it seems he's Darach-dead. Scott brings his mom food but they are interrupted by a patient in pain. Sadly Melissa can't do anything for her until the ER doctor on call gets there. Enter super werewolf power. Scott magically takes the pain away. However unlike last time, it didn't hurt him. Hmm. I was a huge Roswell fan, so let me warn you right now Scott. Letting people know you have these gifts will probably come back to haunt you later. He's interrupted by both Alpha Twin screaming for someone to help Danny and a Mercedes product placement to inform us the on-call doctor is stuck in traffic. Frankly the in-show ad is preferable when Danny starts puking mistletoe all over. Eww. It's obviously Darach but why? Death by mistletoe or a demand for everyone to stop hunting him/her? Either way a vomit warning is necessary before spewing on TV. Danny's lung collapsed, putting pressure on his heart, so neither Alpha Twin nor Scott leaves. Melissa jabs a long needle into his shoulder, turns a plastic knob and voila, crisis adverted. How? Who knows but I think she inflated his lung through his shoulder. If I watched more medical shows, this might make sense to me. Speaking of nonsensical, a swarm of butterflies comes through the ER doc's vents. She's Darach's next target. This would be a great time to brake and get out lady, but no freaking out while driving works too. Hot Hades, was that Darach in her rearview mirror? Now I'm freaking a little too. You're dead Doc, and probably not in a painless, peaceful way.
Best scene - Scott and Stiles debate whether to tell Sheriff the truth about werewolves
Most pointless scene - the closet
Biggest ick - tie - Danny vomits / Scott becomes a werewolf via the superiority of his soul's moral fiber
Biggest "jump in your seat" moment - Darach appears in the rearview mirror
Best reason to watch - werewolf fight
MVP - maps
Most Improved Player - Cora
Biggest question from this episode - tie - Why is Lydia drawing trees and using a kid voice when she does? / What does Evil Grandpa know?
Biggest "what the heck" - spy music playing when Stiles enters Danny's hospital room
Best explanation for the weirdness of Beacon Hills - telluric currents
Person in most need of dying - Kali
Characters who need more screen time - all 3 of the parents - they rocked this episode
Best lines -
Melissa: "Yeah well I'm not going to be anyone's human sacrifice today so both of you get your butts to school."
Isaac: "Boyd and I are…uh, incredibly and unbelievably sick." Derek: "With what? Brain damage."
Stiles: "I can't…I can't lose both of my parents alright? Not both of them." Scott: "You're right." Stiles: "No I'm not. I'm not right. I'll tell him." Derek: "I'll help you."
Alpha Twin: "When in high school has a fire alarm actually been a real fire." Lydia: "That's exactly the kind of thing you'd expect 2 dumba** students to say just before getting burned alive."
Lydia: "Sweetheart, my last boyfriend was a homicidal lizard so I think I can handle a werewolf."
Lydia: "Oh I don't know the answer. I thought we were asking some sort of spirit." Cora: "Well do you know any spirits?" Lydia: "Is she for real?"
