Well, Scott and Kira were half right. We assumed that Lydia’s grandmother Lorraine faked her death and was the Banshee calling the shots, but she wasn’t. It was Meredith. I don’t know about you, but I don’t love this reveal. I guess if we examine the “evidence” it kind of makes sense? Lorraine experimented on Meredith and drove her crazy. Lydia (and gang) kept pushing her to help them and thought they’d driven her to suicide. But is that enough for Meredith to turn on her fellow supernaturals and want them all dead? Again, I need Jeff Davis to start doing some explaining.
But there was some great stuff in the episode that I really enjoyed. Although we’re not really any closer to knowing what Parrish is, we do learn that he’s impervious to fire. I will admit that the opening scene of the episode – Haigh trying to burn Parrish alive – was very upsetting. I should’ve known he wasn’t going to die, but I did think he’d be seriously wounded. So, kudos to the show’s writers/producers for that great fake out. And now Parrish knows that Lydia’s way more than psychic.
We also learn that the Sheriff can’t pay his bills. We already knew that the McCalls were struggling, but we didn’t know that Stiles and his dad were in the same boat. Scott still has the bag of money hidden under his bed though. He counts it, which is a bit OCD and then puts it back under the bed. Was he just making sure it was all there? Was he wondering how much it could pay down the McCall’s debt? It’ll be interesting to see what he eventually does with it.
And now that the dead pool seems to be printing from every printer connected to a power source, all the supernaturals in Beacon Hills should be scared because it’s more than just professional assassins who are coming after them. Haigh is a deputy and convinced other deputies to take out Scott, Malia and Liam (who is now worth a cool $18 million, while Derek’s completely off the list). But Liam’s friend Mason stops the music at the bonfire and Scott is able to stop the deputy who was about to light Scott, Malia and Liam on fire. But who else is going to come after them and how will they continue to protect themselves? Even without his sight, strength and healing they know they can still count on Derek.
The final dead pool list:
I knew something was off with this list because there were no dollar amounts next to the names. After Lydia and Stiles break the code using “Ariel,” a nickname The Little Mermaid obsessed young Lydia loved, we find out why. Every single person on the list died by suicide at Eichen House and it was Brunski who killed them. Just before he dies – shot by Parrish, who was an awesome badass in this episode, by the way – he tells them he wasn’t controlling Meredith; she was controlling him.
My favorite line:
Derek: “Banshees don’t predict danger. They predict death.”
Where the hell is Danny? His absence is beyond suspicious and I need some answers!
