TEEN WOLF “Lunatic” Review

TEEN WOLF "Lunatic" Season 1 Episode 8 - Whenever lacrosse is featured, TEEN WOLF always seems to drag. I found tonight’s episode, aptly titled "Lunatic," hard to sit through. I was going a little crazy waiting for the appearance of the full moon and for Scott to go into maximum wolf mode. He finally does this in the last few minutes of the episode, but then the same thing happens as in every other episode. Derek tackles him and roars; Scott roars and tumbles, asking what happened. Everyoneelse is brooding and acting deviously the whole time. Last week, Lydia, Jackson and Allison started acting against the grain of their characters, or at least what I had surmised about their characters. Nothing is done to explain this or to move the story forward. Luckily Stiles’ scenes are generally a welcome breath of fresh air on the show, and I continue to enjoy the sarcastic nature of the character. Plus, wanting to learn more about the mystery – despite its slow reveal – still keeps me going.

Scott is sulking over the breakup with Allison; and the full moon isn’t helping his general mood. Is it the full moon and overcharged senses that make him see things that aren’t actually there? Of course, there is some sort of influence from the Alpha, but he doesn’t experience hallucinations when he turns into a wolf on a normal day. Read More...
