TEEN WOLF “Heart Monitor” Review

TEEN WOLF "Heart Monitor" Season 1 Episode 6 - Don’t get angry! Scott gets some schooling as he tries to keep his distance from Allison. He still seems clueless, but his doofus moments are limited to those of a hormonal, high school teenager in tonight’s TEEN WOLF. After a couple lackluster episodes, I am relieved to say that "Heart Monitor" is a great episode and things are getting juicy. The opening sequence is clever and exciting, setting the tone for the rest of the episode, which mixes funny with scary with high school (which is both funny and scary). Many of the transitions between scenes are also very visually interesting. The big question that the episode asks, but does not definitively answer, is who the Alpha is and what does he want.

Can Scott be taught by Derek to control his wolf side? If you can teach me, I can stay away from Allison. Uh huh, whatever. He does try at least, though Derek seems as willing to teach Scott as Scott is to help Derek figure out Alpha’s motives, meaning not at all. A teacher who doesn’t know if he can teach a student is not very useful, though Derek does offer the advice about needing primal animal rage to shift into a wolf. You would think that Scott could figure this fact out by himself. Read More...
