First of all, they didn’t keep the changed theme song from last week, as they returned to the original opening song. It’s unknown if they saw some of the fan reaction to it last week or if they had always planned on changing it back after that episode. Regardless, it’s great that it’s back to its original theme.
This week we learned more about the dark figures, also known as the oni and as predicted, they only got scarier because of the new information. The writing team for Teen Wolf did a great job in setting up a good structure in these figures.
One of the aspects that we enjoyed with this arc is that Alison’s dad got to be a bit involved. The fact that he had already faced these creatures before was a good backstory for us to get. Hopefully his involvement will become bigger as we get closer to the end of the season because he is a great character and he hasn’t really been featured enough this year.
