Tomorrow, December 6th, Teen Wolf will air it’s fourth episode of the final season. This episode is titled “Relics”, and the episode description on MTV is as follows: Scott and Liam protect the lacrosse team from an attack by the Ghost Riders while Lydia searches for clues that lead her closer to finding Stiles.
Relics is defined as an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest. Looks like the focus of the episode is going to be on what happens on Lydia’s side of the episode, and getting us one step closer to getting our beloved mischief maker back where he belongs.
Teen Wolf tends to be light on promo photos, but this week we get not one, but two sneak peek videos to look at before the episode airs.
Teen Wolf 6×04 “Relics” Promo
Lydia is really taking on the Stilinski’s in wanting to get to the bottom of their connection to this missing “Stiles” person. Between her stalking around the Stilinski house (see Sneak Peek #1) and trying to convince the Sheriff that there are things left behind as clues, she is doing her best to keep that promise she doesn’t remember to Stiles in trying to remember him.
Meanwhile Malia seems to be doubting his existence again, which I’m sure that flash is completely out of context from what that scene will be about.
Oh, and Parrish is on fire again. Must be #Teen Wolf Tuesday. I think that’s the hallway at the High School and I can see Hailey over his shoulder with someone else so he’s probably getting all #HellPuppy on a Rider.
It looks like Scott and Liam are going to have an interesting time trying to protect the lacrosse team from the Riders – at least one person is going to get dragged into non-existence. Who is going to be left standing at the end of this, I wonder, and who is going to wake up next to Stiles in the train station to nowhere?
Teen Wolf 6×04 Sneak Peek #1: Lydia’s Bizarre Encounter
Lydia is sneaking around the Stilinski house when she runs into another “ghost”, telling her that what she is looking for is right in front of her. She notices the wallpaper and starts to pull it back, only to be interrupted by Claudia.
So there are growing theories on just who Claudia is, and articles like this one on ibtimes.com discussing it. This is mostly because of the fact that Sheriff is the only one who seems to have gotten back a person based off losing another – but that his father Elias used the barb of him going back to his “dead wife and loser son”. Why is that? Is there a reason why of all those taken, Stiles’ existence is more important to disguise as well as erase than anyone else?
There are theories that Claudia is one of the Ghost Riders impersonating her so that the large amount of voids in Sheriff’s mind would be filled. After all, the Sheriff and Stiles have been alone together since he was eight, so that’s a lot of empty spaces to refill. Others wonder if Claudia faked her own death and now that Stiles is gone, perhaps the reason she did so disappeared and she returned to town.
I have a fun one to throw out there based on the actual Norse myth of the Wild Hunt. The myth talks about there being a figure who was the leader of the Wild Hunt. This person was closely related to Odin, but looking at the Germanic names, a lot of the leader names are female. Another site points out that in some tales, the hunter is a derivative from Freya or Frigg.
What if Claudia is actually the Leader of the Wild Hunt who is also trapped in town, and well – the Sheriff is a sweet catch for any single lady, right? Plus if it is Freya, you could look at comparisons of Sheriff to Odin. Nameberry.com describes the name “Odin” as: the name of the supreme Norse god of art, culture, wisdom and law — who was handsome, charming and eloquent into the bargain. The name projects a good measure of strength and power and has excellent assimilation potential. Does that describe Sheriff Stilinski to you?
So what are your theories about Claudia and how is her presence effecting the pack, and Sheriff, from remembering Stiles?
Teen Wolf 6×04 Sneak Peek #2: Mama McCall Joins the Hunt
This one follows me new favorite ship – Chris Argent and Melissa McCall. Mama McCall wants to help; which Chris lets her join him in the field. She wants to be active in the helping beyond just being at the hospital watching victims get wheeled by. They end up finding two bodies – not people who have been taken – so they are probably tracking the brain eating Nazi Werewolf that everyone else knows as Mr. Douglas.
Chris is so patient with her and her first timer nervousness. It’s amazing to see how much he has mellowed since the uptight hunter we were introduced to back in season 1. He’s been the one who lost the most in this show personally, and the fact he is still hunting and wanting to help protect Beacon Hills is remarkable. I would have waved that town goodbye years ago if I was him.
What do you think about Melissa getting out from behind the nurse station and into the field? What about Melissa and Chris becoming the next buddy cop team-up since Derek isn’t there to work with him? Me – I’m looking forward to a lot more of these two teaming up, both on screen and in off-screen scenes that are the stuff of fanfiction and make my shipper heart happy.
TEEN WOLF 6×05 BONUS INFO!
And as a special extra extra for those reading, here is the episode summary for 6×05 – “Radio Silence” – airing December 13th:Trapped inside the Wild Hunt, Stiles reunites with an unexpected ally while Scott, Lydia and Malia discover Stiles’s Jeep may be connected to his disappearance.
WHOOT!!!!! STILES RETURNS TO THE TV SCREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also – would this “unexpected ally” happen to be Peter Hale shaped?
And finally – Roscoe still exists. How is that possible if the person is completely erased from existence including all their personal belongings? What else may be in Roscoe that will give the pack hints as to who this “Stiles” is? And just how is it “connected” to his disappearance beyond being the site where it happened?
Way too many questions and no answers in sight. Is it December 13th yet?
