Teen Wolf - Raw Talent - Advanced Review

While the premiere focused on where the characters were going, this episode is all about setting up the final plot and main theme of the season: Fear makes monsters of us all. Back in Beacon Hills, the “monsters” aren’t really hiding their special status well. Let’s just say that if they had a secret identity, they would be wearing it as a nametag. Even Scott is not immune from sloppy monster behavior when he starts to wolf out in front of the non-supernatural too. Not that the civilians are doing much better. Fear is running rampant in much the same way that it did with the steampunk scientists. It’s subtle but it is there. Except when it is not that subtle - enter Shady Guidance Counselor 2 and the head of Eichen House, who are controlled by their fears and each go after a fan favorite.

In an episode with double the villain monologues and plotline anvils, the highlight is by far Lydia. For much of the episode, she is in full banshee mode. She searches for the sounds in her vision to try to determine their source and thus identify the threat. While the season’s Big Bad is likely to remain a mystery for a few more episodes, it does lead to Kick Butt Lydia and that is always a plus. Add to it the Argent shootout and there is decent action in an episode largely overcome by too much exposition and stilted pacing along with too little humor, although Malia tries.

Grade: C+

Episode Tidbits:

2 previous villains return, one with the biggest filler montage yet.

2 of Team Parent return.

Creepy Beacon Hills High body is extra creepy with a side of “Huh? Say what? I don’t get it.”

It’s not just Lydia seeing things this episode.

Flashbacks to seasons 1 and 5 and references to others.

Liam’s IED returns after taking a break for a couple of seasons.

People in Beacon Hills really need better passwords.

Warning - If you are not a fan of spiders, this may not be the episode for you.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
