Note: This article primarily covers the last 6 episodes of Teen Wolf 3A. It is final of a 3-part series of articles. Stay tuned for weekly recaps of the new episodes, best scene polls, and my Last Week in TV column, which will be posted every Monday. It was a blast counting down the last 7 days with you.
Best Episode - The Girl Who Knew Too Much
Best Scene - The Girl Who Knew Too Much - Sheriff and Stiles recap 3 seasons of Beacon Hills weirdness over chess
**The first reason I chose this scene is because it fulfilled one of my top wish list items for season 3 - that Sheriff would find out the secret. However, it is also very well acted between my favorite scene pair of them all, Stiles and his dad. I love how important it is to Stiles for his dad to believe him and how bizarre the whole thing sounds to Sheriff. It's also a great mini-review for the show as a whole.
Best Action - Lunar Ellipse - Blake vs. Kali and the Alpha Twins
**The entire season came down to Blake and Kali, as much as Duke liked to think it was him. Theirs was the better rivalry and the richest back story. I wish they would have explored their history in better detail, but this fight was spectacular. From Blake's entrance through the ceiling of Derek's loft to the special effects of the glass rising to the casual way Blake snapped SuperWolf, it was a great sequence.
Best Humor - Currents
**Currents is easily the most humorous episode even if it is not the snarkiest. It actually has three great humor scenes. 1. Melissa wakes up to find Isaac and Scott asleep by her bed after a night of guarding her. 2. Stiles trying to get Lydia to use psychic power to find Deaton while Cora looks on 3. Stiles breaking into Danny's stuff in the hospital. All three are fabulous on their own, but put together it's one fun comedy sketch.
Best Monologue - Alpha Pact - Sheriff talks about the night his wife died
Worst Scene/ Biggest Canon Break - Lunar Ellipse - Scott pops Blake's bubble
Best Quote - The Girl Who Knew Too Much - Isaac: "Oh this is so not going to end well."
**It might be the theme song of the show to be honest. However, what earns it the best quote award here was the delivery. Isaac is so hapless in this part of the season and yet even he knows that Allison's plan is foolhardy.
Worst Plan (by far) - Lunar Ellipse - letting Deucalion go
Best villain - All episodes - Peter
**While Gerard and Deucalion reached uber levels of annoyance, Peter was manipulating his way into villain greatness. His scheming and maneuvering of characters was grand master level. I adore the reveal at the end of something we all knew - Peter is an evil genius. I really hope they slow burn this revelation for a few years, because I would love to see him be the final season Big Bad.
Biggest Lesson - The Overlooked, etc - Beacon Hills really should offer emergency training and basic safety skills to their community.
Best Reason to Watch - All episodes - The ever expanding Team Sane
Best Product Placement - Visionary - Reese's
Best new character - Visionary - Talia
Best Title Tie-In - Currents
Biggest Conundrum - All episodes - werewolf senses, they come and they go
**It's like every other episode. In one they are using their werewolf senses to overhear a phone call and in the next someone is sneaking up behind them. Half the time they use their werewolf sense of smell to find solutions, but no one thought to do that as soon as Sheriff was taken or to find Lydia. What the heck? Werewolf senses are the very epitome of a plot device on Teen Wolf.
Best Reason to Fast Forward - All episodes - Villain Monologues
The "Gone to Soon" Award - Various episodes - Erica, Boyd, and Mystery Motorcycle Chick
Smartest Plan - All episodes - Supersizing the season to 24 episodes
**There were many brilliant plans hatched on screen this season so far, but by far the best one happened behind it. Thanks cast and crew of Teen Wolf because hiatus is murder when you only get 12 episodes a year. Happy New Teen Wolf Day!
