Episode 21, The Fox and the Wolf
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. They are well worth seeing.
The episode starts off with the origin story of the demon thingy. During the Japanese internment it rose from the fallen as two soldiers were disposing of bodies.
The very first thing Evil Styles does when he shows up is to go to Kira’s dad, looking for the last of the good demons. When Scott and Kira show up we find out a lot about Kira’s family. Her mom looks awesome for a 900 year old.
The evil demon that has Styles actually came from Kira’s mom!
Kira’s mom was a scavenger in the internment camp as well as being the lover of one of the soldiers. While at the camp some form of flu broke out but the camp doctor was selling the meds on the black market. People in the camp are starting to die and the survivors are getting mad. This leads to a riot, and then a slaughter. Kira’s mother watched the violence and watched as one of her camp mates revealed herself as a werewolf before taking the riot to the next level. Kira’s mom took several bullets in the hale of gunfire, but whatever she was, she was able to heal. Unfortunately her boyfriend was burnt to a crisp, and lived lone enough to suffer because the doctor had also sold all the morphine.
Back at the police station Styles’ dad lets Mr. Argent and Derek go so they can go help find and trap his son. The MRI that showed Styles’s disease was all a trick, it was actually his mothers MRI. The evil demon is trying to get Styles to give up.
Evil Styles appears to be a step ahead of everyone, and then shows up in his room, waving to his dad on the security camera. I have a bad feeling about this.
When Kira woke up she was in the truck with her boyfriends body next to hers, his body wrapped in bandages. And thus we learn where Tooth Monster came from. He was born of love and loss and hate when Kira’s mom gave in to the urge for revenge. She called the demon, but it took her dead boyfriends body, not hers. The very thing she had called, hoping for revenge for her fallen, took the lives of the remaining survivors of the interment camp. When Kira’s mom makes it back to the camp everyone is dead. She grabs her sword from under her bed (where every girl keeps it) and then uses her blade to stab the demon at the same time the werewolf is attacking it from behind.
The demon goes down, but isn’t fully dead. Just put down for a while, but at the cost of breaking Kira’s mom’s sword. Now Kira needs to use her lightening powers to weld the sword back together so they can use the blade to drive the demon out of Styles.
Back in Styles’ room the team is fighting over what Styles left them. A threat? Or a helpful note from the real Styles?
Kira’s mom’s gives her the blade, telling them that the only way to save Styles is to kill him.
The very last scene sets up next weeks episode. Its all on at Derek’s loft.
