the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (TW: Stiles & Erica)

This time I didn't write up 3.19 before watching 3.20, but it's all fucked anyway.  Okay, not completely -- I had been preparing myself for worse -- but two Jeff Davis episodes in a row?  We are but sinners in the hands of an angry God.


  • Items of "continuity": "wolf lycan lichen" (ugh, I'm such an idiot) is used to poison wolves, but grown from the blood of a nogitsune it will kill the "fox" in Stiles; if you offend a nogitsune, bad shit happens; Scott may be the twins' official alpha now; Peter's bite activated Lydia's banshee powers, which are apparently not about screaming but hearing; Malia is Peter's daughter, but Talia took the memory away from him; Kira's mom has sacrificed at least 7 (of 9 -- BOOM!  Trek ref!) tails to create the oni; nogitsune feed on chaos and pain

  • It's funny to see Deaton doing actual vet stuff... Well, okay, he starts out doing actual vet stuff.

  • Suddenly Kira can backflip.  Are flashy, terrible fighting skills part of the supernatural package?  If so, why doesn't Lydia have them?

  • Is the film sped up or does Danny run kinda funny?

  • Um, how is Peter going to teach Lydia to use her powers?  Is he a banshee expert?

  • Derek: "I didn't think Stiles was smart enough to frame us for murder."  This, combined with last week's "skinny, defenseless Stiles" (who held your dense ass up in a pool for two hours) remark just seemed weird.  Like, I get they're not friends, but they'd at least reached a grudging truce by the end of 3a.  Stiles saved Cora's life, for fuck's sake.  Even taking off my shipper hat, the lines seem out of character for Derek.

  • Fun(ish) throwback to Jared puking on the bus.

  • LOVE the scene of Stiles seppuku-ing Scott at the end.  Not just for hand!porn and Stiles' O-face, but that certainly didn't hurt.  Just a great anti-bro scene with terrific acting from Dylan.

  • There had better be a damned good reason for JD revealing Stiles as the nogitsune so early.  I just kept thinking how awesome it would be for the audience to know while the characters didn't, how much fun it is to watch Dylan slide back and forth between the two.  Okay, so I find creepy!Stiles kind of hot, shut up.



And not we move onto the hot mess that is...


  • Items of "continuity": Stiles brings his pillow with him wherever he goes because he can't sleep without it; wolf lichen "poisons" the nogitsune, giving Stiles temporary control, but can't kill it, and apparently only works once (?); Malia turned into a werecoyote on the full moon and caused the car crash that killed her mom and sister; according to the [something] scroll, the nogitsune can be exorcised by "changing the host's body"

  • So obviously Stiles checked himself into Eichen House instead of, say, the nice clean hospital where Melissa works and could keep an eye on him in order to get access to the basement.  Which the entire cast just walked right into not 2 episodes ago?

  • What do echoes have to do with anything?

  • So apparently Morrell is licensed to do literally everything.  Awesome.

  • It's confirmed that Kira's a superhero now.  Or maybe just a member of the Deadly Viper Assassin Squad.

  • What happened to the original plan to rob the armored truck with the decoy car crash?  Did I miss something?  I really don't feel like rewatching.

  • The woman who meets with Chris in the jail -- is that the La Loba lady?

  • OTP aside, I don't have any problem with Stiles/Malia... in concept.  But the downright bizarre way it was done here: "I'm dangerously insane."  "Cool, I'm a werecoyote and I want to know how to change back." "Okay, I've got this friend who--"  ::boobs::  ::sex::  Um, I really, really hope they just made out, maybe a little dry humping, because that was the very definition of unsafe sex, not least because it was in the basement of a mental institution.  (Though Stiles asking if Malia's first kiss was all right was sweet.  But I don't care how much of a teenager you are; you don't go from "first kiss" to "fucking in the basement of a mental institution" in under 30 seconds.)

  • How does the nogitsune have an actual body?  I guess that's what Lydia heard to draw her down to the basement, but... what?

  • What was Malia doing in the hospital in the first place, and how could she just leave?  I'd assumed her father had her committed, but she would've needed his permission to leave.  I don't know if minors can check themselves in.  If it weren't for the key exchange and the scene of Malia leaving at the end, I'd think both Malia and Oliver were figments of Stiles' imagination.



::whine:: This half-season started so promisingly.  Kinda.
