3.02 “chaos rising
This episode started off showing the friendships between Lydia and Allison, and with Stiles and Scott. While Stiles and Scott we’re going to a party to blow off steam and move on from Allison and Lydia. Lydia and Allison were trying to reach them searching for some answers as to the mark on their wrists.
• Hopefully this means a Scott and Stiles can move on! It seems that they were sure trying with Scott ignoring Allison’s calls and Stiles about to… Read on
At the party which is thrown by one of Stiles old kindergarten buddies, who was very beautiful! The beautiful girl was introduced by telling this super fan Shantal that she plans on losing her virginity on her 17th birthday party that night. The very important question was asked by Shantal which was who will the guy be? Walk in Stiles greeted by the beauty with a kiss and an invitation to the wine cellar bow chica wow wow! link
• Making me ask what kind of impression could Stiles have left in kindergarten?
• This excited me beyond measure because well Stiles after everything he’s been through deserves this! (Although I’m still hoping for a Stiles and Erica romantic relationship!)
But even with this awesome and amazing setup it was ruined when Stiles had to get a (XXL) condom from the beautiful girls brothers stash. During which She was bombarded by exploding bottles of wine and when she was at the peak of her fear the window above opened (almost magically) and she was abducted. Talk about a major C- block! The weird thing is when stiles returned to the wine cellar there were no evidence of exploding wine bottles?link
• Why no evidence of bottles? Is she nutz? Was it magic? Was it mind control?
• Also who kidnapped her and why? And what will they do with her? Later in the episode there is a theory that the Alpha pack abducted her to turn her, but why would they need a beta?
Later we see a nervous Isaac because Derek has called in Peter to help him remember what happened the night he found Erica and Boyd. Peter happens to come just as Derek and Isaac are discussing how much they each don’t like or trust him. Peter acts gracefully and helps by extracting memories through his claws implanted in Isaacs’s spine. A skill we learned is mostly used by alphas because with lack of precision Isaac could die! They find out that Isaac did find Erica and Boyd and they are being held by the Alpha pack, plus a half heard conversation that they’ll be dead by the next full Moon!link
• Peters been helping Derek and Isaac all summer why so weird that he would help them?
• Where are Erica and Boyd? And who will be dead by the next full Moon?...Read on
Next we see a conversation with Allison, Lydia, and Scott trying to convince Derek that the mark on their wrist means something. As usual Derek doesn’t listen and an argument ensues. Derek justifies not trusting Allison because last season she hunted them rebuttal by Allison claiming Derek killed her mother which then Derek asks Scott to tell Allison the truth and he wimps out. Later there’s also a moment where Scott senses the twins?link
• Why won’t Scott tell Allison the truth?
• What did Scott sensing the twins foreshadow?
Next is a small moment where Lydia flirts with a twin “the straight one obviously”-Lydia and Danny flirts with the other one.
• What do these relationships mean? Are they a plot from the alphas or just good fun?
In order for Isaac to remember where he saw Erica and Boyd, Scott asks for Dr. Deytons help. The plan is to slow Isaacs’s heart rate to near death putting him in a hypnosis state. During which Dr. Deyton asks a series of questions triggering flashbacks showing Boyd and a mystery wolf in a vault whose emblem matches the mark on Allison and Lydia’s wrist. The bad news is Isaac said that he saw Erica’s dead body. Also to prove she’s right Allison plans to break into the bank alone.
• Why a bank vault?...Read on
• Who is the other girl in the vault?...Read on
• Is Erica dead?
Next is Stiles making a plan to break into the bank vault so Derek and Scott can save Boyd and the mystery girl. During which Stiles and Peter discover the vault is not a prison but a trap for Derek and Scott. But before they can tell Derek and Scott they rush in on Derek’s command even though Scott has a bad feeling and wants to wait. Peter and Stiles figured out after Stiles obsessing that the Vault is made of a special stone starving the wolves of moonlight making them vicious! Allison did break in but Ms. Monroe told her to hide in a closet from the Alpha pack where she found Erica’s seemingly dead body. Once in the vault we find out the mystery girl is Derek’s little Sister Cora who he thought was dead, and that the trap was help set by Ms. Monroe. Luckily Ms. Monroe saved Allison and had her save them by breaking the mountain ash force field locking them in the vault. Which Derek is mad at Allison for because now Boyd and his sister are on the loose more vicious than ever! In rebuttal Allison brings up her mom again forcing Scott (hopefully we do not know it was not shown that he tells her but she is now aware there’s more to the story) to tell Allison that her mother was bitten while trying to kill Scott.
• We’ll Derek ever learn to be patient as a leader?
• How did Derek Sister Cora survive? And why/how is she captured by the Alpha pack?
• Is Ms. Monroe evil or double agent?
• Who will tell Allison the truth?
• Is Erica dead?
Finally the episode ended with Lydia screaming!
