Episode 9, Perishable
Summary: If you haven’t already watched the first three seasons its time now. It’s an amazingly well done show. Go watch Season 1, Season 2, and the first half of Season 3.
Episode 8 left off with a twist. Who wouldn’t need to see a body to know if the person was dead or not? A Banshee. And for an added twist we find out that Lydia’s grandmother was a banshee and that she may not be dead.
Episode 9 kicks off with Parish zip tied to his car’s steering wheel while another deputy is pouring gas on him. The other deputy wants the 5 million. Bad deputy puts his headphones in and throws his lighter in. Parish screams and they cut away.
Back in the precinct Bad Deputy tries to collect and just as he is hoping to get his wire transfer a nearly naked Parish comes in to beat the crap out of him. (We still don’t know what Parish is though.)
And of course the burning (no pun intended) question is – would you kill a co-worker for 5 million dollars?
Unfortunately the Sheriff gets winged in the shoulder during the beat down that Parish gave to Bad Deputy, and while he and Stiles are in the hospital the Stilinski money troubles come out – at least until the morphine kicks in. And at the same time Scott & his mom are having money troubles Scott has the bag of money under his bed. Why wouldn’t you use it to fix a few things?
At Lydia’s, we find out a long strange tale of Banshee evil’s at her lake house.
While all this is going on, Liam is loosing his mind. He keeps seeing the monster he fought on the roof and he is beginning to wig out. The night before his printer went nuts and started printing out the names of everyone on the list – but now Liam’s price has sky rocketed and Derek is worth 0 because I don’t think he’s a werewolf anymore – he’s just a human.
At the bonfire the kids are going nuts and they have a massive bonfire and a DJ, you know, just like a normal high school shindig. Scott is policing the place, but so is the creepy dude from the mental institution. Malia is there, and she is trying to get drunk, which makes me mad because she should be with Stiles – not out partying and trying to drink her troubles away.
Back at the nut house Lydia and Stiles are bribing one of the orderlies to get into a file room. As they bribe him for the key they see the tape the orderly has, and they should have taken that as a sign to run – but instead let him lead them into a closed room where he proceeds to use a stun gun on both of them.
At the party the wolves are trying to get drunk – but someone is doing something that is impacting the wolves. They are feeling it, but its not alcohol. Somehow the DJ is making Team Wolf feel disconnected and drugged. Which leads Scott to head for the DJ to try and shut off the music only to have himself incapacitated and carried out by “security” with the rest of Team Wolf. Directly inside so they can be doused with gas. Luckily, Liam’s friend realizes what is going on and pulls the plug on the DJ’s equipment just in time for Scott to come out of his stupor.
Back at the precinct Bad Deputy meets Derek’s new girlfriend, as well as a broken nos
You have to love a girl who can talk with her fists.
I think the big thin we find out is that Lydia’s grandmother isn’t the bad guy – she was murdered by the crazy orderly at the nut hatch hospital. And then Lydia & Stiles almost get offed but Parish saves them just in time. But as the orderly is dying he is laughing, telling them that he was being controlled by someone else.
We then find out that Meredith is the Benefactor!
Things I loved about this episode…
- Parish walking back into the police station and beating the crap out of Bad Deputy.
- Statistically speaking, someone on your team has to be on my team.
- Stiles – “You read that movie?” When Lydia tells him she used to read “The Little Mermaid” with her grandmother.
- Derek kicks ass even when he is just a human. He took down the guys at the school with just his fists.
Things that I didn’t like about this episode…
- Poor Stiles and his dad. It sucks to be under water on your bills, and sucks even worse to add medical expenses on top of it all.
- Why wouldn’t you pay some bills with the money under Scott’s bed? I don’t see the big moral issue with using it. It was blood money. It’s not anymore.
