Warning: There are spoilers below!
Ok, now that we have the necessary warning out of the way let’s get to the first episode of Teen Wolf Season 2. The season opener premiered this past Sunday (June 3) after the MTV movie awards. Being the ancient 25-year-old I am, I passed out before the premiere (lame, I know), but I finally got the chance to sit down and check the episode out. My initial thoughts in one word – disappointing.
In the first episode of Season 2, when Lydia goes missing from the hospital, werewolves and hunters alike begin a search to discover not only where she is, but what she’s become. Meanwhile, during the day the Argent family, including grandpa, attends crazy Kate’s funeral.
As I said above, I was disappointed by this episode. It felt like it was nothing more than an episode dedicated entirely to setting up future episodes. It was almost like filler, and you should never have the season opener feel like filler. I found myself bored, and I even lost attention a few times and played a couple rounds of Angry Birds on my cell. Not good, not good at all. I did beat some high scores though. But back on topic – the episode left me unfulfilled and honestly, I have no desire to even check out the second episode. I will of course, but I am not pumped for it.
The entire episode was mostly spent looking for Lydia, who was thought to be behind a few bloody events in town. There wasn’t a lot of suspense there, and when they weren’t talking about Lydia, I totally forgot about her. It was rather blah. Then there was Jackson. He was bitten and apparently it didn’t go well, so now he has black ooze coming from his nose and ears. I’ll admit I am curious about how he will fare, but those scenes didn’t enthrall me either. Even the glorious Stiles was a letdown, he wasn’t really funny this episode. Sad.
The only positives were the sexy scenes. Yes, that sounds like me being shallow and pervy, but really, the episode had nothing else going for it. Very little happened in that hour-long episode. Here’s hoping episode two is better.
What were your thoughts on the first episode of Teen Wolf Season 2?
