Teen Wolf Review: “Monstrous” (Season 4, Episode 10)



Lydia (Holland Roden) spends this episode in a familiar position, trying to uncover the truth. Interrogating Meredith (Maya Eshet) is a necessary evil, and unfortunately leads to an even more surprising revelation. On one hand, Meredith seems to be competent enough to enact the deadpool, but on the other hand, she’s clearly suffering from psychological trauma.

The real treat that fans got out of this episode of Teen Wolf was a look into the history between Meredith and Peter (Ian Bohen). Until now, the motivation behind the benefactor, thus Meredith, has been unknown. After watching the previous encounter between the two characters, it becomes a lot clearer what has taken place. Peter has essentially been funding his own mission of murder, and oddly enough, he doesn’t remember even thinking those thoughts. Or at least that’s the story he’s sticking to for the moment.

Peter is a complex character and it wouldn’t come as any big shock if he had masterminded the entire deadpool scenario. Granted, he does seem for the most part to have turned over a new leaf, we keep coming back to these points of contention with his character at the center.  His alliance with Kate (Jill Wagner) only demonstrates more of his penchant for violence in an attempt to reclaim his former Alpha status.

It appears that the deadpool was just the first notch in Peter’s plan to take back what Scott took from him as season one wrapped up. Peter may have found his way back to the land of the living, but he’s never quite managed to find his sanity. And now, he has the help of Kate and some very impressive supernatural bodyguards to pave the way for his return to the top. Personally, I don’t think that Peter has a shot, but it’ll be interesting to see him try.

Does anyone else think that Lydia’s mom is going to freak out when she finds out about the wall at the lake house? Let us know what you think, and all your other Teen Wolf theories, in the comments section below!
