Teen Wolf Season 4 – Episode 1

Episode  1,  The Dark Moon


If you haven’t already watched the first three seasons its time now.  It’s an amazingly well done show. Go watch Season 1Season 2, and the first half of Season 3. They are well worth seeing.

As a quick recap, at the end of Season 3 Kate Argent has come back as a weird looking wolf, and Allison Argent was run through and killed.

Season 4 kicks off with Styles and Lydia somewhere south of the border and Lydia is not very enthused about the plan. Styles and Lydia are taken to the “Boss” who tells him they were not smart to come alone. Styles looks her right in the eyes and tells her they didn’t come alone.

It was an awesome start to the show. The question is, can they save Derek?

Scott takes out one of the guards in the dance hall and pick up his microphone, telling Styles to take 10k off the table. The off to pay for Derek is down from 50k to 40k now.

The female Boss isn’t ready to negotiate yet and floods the hallways with gaseous wolvesbane. The Boss puts everyone but Lydia in lockup while she questions Lydia about what kind of Alpha Scott is.

Scott is tortured a bit, and with the help of some prodding by the Hungter Boss comes to the realization after a bit of applied electrons that Derek was taken by Kate. They then show Derek resting in the dirt – which I seem to remember is how they resurrected Peter Hale? So who is Kate trying to bring back Allison maybe?

On the drive to try and find the next step to hunt Kate the jeep is disabled and Scott is forced to go out with the hunter on her motorcycle. Is it really Kate in disguise? Did the Hunter Boss say Kate could shape change?

Scott and the hunter go into the ruins looking for Kate while Styles & team are stuck trying to fix the disabled jeep before whatever is out in the desert with them shows itself.

Malia gets hurt but Styles gets the jeep running while Scott rescues a young Derek Hale, who apparently has been made young somehow.

Things I loved about this episode…

  • Styles telling the “Boss” hunter he didn’t come alone.
  • Malia dancing with Kira. Malia can move.2014_TeenWolf_S4_E1_MaliaDancing
  • Malia kissing Styles! I hope he finally gets to have a long term love interest.2014_TeenWolf_S4_E1_MaliaKissingStyles
  • Malia telling Styles to work faster, there is something in the desert with them.
  • Styles telling Malia not to run, and she tells him she would never leave without him. Then she turns and looks at Lydia and Kira and says, “I would leave them.” I think Styles has a girlfriend.

Things that I didn’t like about this episode…

  • Scott being taken down so “easily” in the Bosses place. It feels like team teen wolf can’t ever win a fight all the way to the end.
  • Stop teasing us with split second shots of Malia in her booty shorts!
  • Can we get older Derek back? The young Derek is not as cute as the older, more mature Derek.2014_TeenWolf_S4_E1_YoundDerek
