Teen Wolf – Episode 12 – Code Breaker – Season Finale
I love Teen Wolf so much! This has been an amazing first season!
Highlights from tonight’s season finale:
After attacking Lydia, the Alpha takes Stiles with him to search for Derek. Jackson finds Lydia and she is brought to the hospital. The Alpha tells Stiles that if Lydia survives she’ll become a werewolf — and females go “nuts” twice a month. Oh no!
At the school, Scott escapes from Allison’s dad and runs into the woods. He breaks down as his secret was revealed to Allison in the most awful way. The hunters then go on a mission to find Scott now that they know he is the second Beta.
At the hospital Jackson reveals to Stiles’ dad that Lydia went with Stiles to the formal, which angers the dad.
The Alpha forces Stiles to break into Scott’s account so they can track the GPS on his phone (the phone is with Derek). Stiles reveals that Scott’s user name is Allison and password is Allison. What a dork! LOL
Meanwhile, Scott howls into the sky to communicate to Derek. Then to his surprise Derek howls back. Scott runs to find him.
Alpha and Stiles find out where Derek is via the GPS but the Alpha hears the howling as well so he knows that Scott is looking for Derek too. The Alpha tempts Stiles with the bite to become a werewolf. He refuses, but the Alpha tells him he’s lying. Interesting subtext! Maybe we can revisit this in season 4 or something.
Scott finds the lair where the hunters are keeping Derek, and helps him break free. He explains that the fire wasn’t an accident, and that Peter’s (the Alpha’s) nurse was an accomplice in all this.
Allison’s dad arrives at the hospital and interrogate Stiles (who the Alpha let go) and Jackson. Stiles tells him that his sister started the fire.
Scott and Derek are in the woods — looking for the Alpha in Derek’s dilapidated. Derek says it’s too easy, then Allison shoots at Derek and Scott with her bow and trick arrows! Allison thinks that they were there to catch them, but her aunt says they are there to kill them.
Allison’s father comes to stop his sister from killing Scott.
Then the Alpha shows up from inside Derek’s house. It attacks everyone then takes Allison’s aunt inside. Allison runs in. The Alpha asks the aunt to apologize. She does, but the Alpha kills her anyway. “That didn’t sound sincere,” he says.
Scott and Derek come in and battle the Alpha!
The Alpha turns into a full werewolf and throws Scott outside. Stiles and Jackson arrive in the Porsche. Stiles throws a molotov cocktail at the werewolf! (Hahaha! Lydia’s idea from the trapped in the high school episode!) The Alpha catches it. Oh no. Scott then hands Allison her bow and arrow and she shoots! The molotov cocktail explodes! The Alpha arm is burning. And then, Jackson throws another molotov cocktail — and the Alpha’s whole body burns.
Allison kisses Scott who turns back into his human form. “Why did you do that?” he asks. “Because I love you.”
The Alpha lays on the ground and Derek approaches him. Scott asks him to stop because if the Alpha dies then Scott is screwed. Derek mentioned before that Scott needed to kill the Alpha to break the curse but he wasn’t sure.
However… Derek kills the Alpha!
His eyes glow red. “I’m the Alpha now.”
Stiles and Scott go to the hospital to visit Lydia. Her wounds were not healed which means she’s not a werewolf. Stiles asks “What is she?”
Jackson asks Derek to give him what he wants since he helped him. Derek shows his fangs. Did he bite Jackson?
Allison’s dad says “They’ll be here in two days.” Who are “they”? He also says that they will pariahs in the town now — since Allison’s sister has been linked to the arson that killed innocent children in Derek’s family. Regarding Scott, who was on the roof with Allison, he says “I’m not the only one he has to worry about now.”
Whew! What a season! Those were nice unanswered questions in the end, but the first story arc concluded very nicely. I can’t wait for season two.
Go Tyler! Go Dylan!
I love Teen Wolf so much!

Got Something to Add?
I'M TRYING TO FIND THE NAME AND ARTIST OF THAT SONG AT THE END ALSO....I THINK HER FIRST NAME WAS LILLY.......THEY PUT HER NAME AND THE SONG NAME UP AT THE END AND I WROTE IT DOEN...BUT I THREW OUT THE PAPER....ANYONE KNOW WHAT IT WAS?
stiles is a scene-stealer indeed. other characters are just blah. lydia's character is also nice. maybe it's just me but allison seems like she's on a runway show,.. the way she walks, her facial expression.. so MTV acting..
Rickey, how do you feel about Jackson? I was all for the whole Byronic hero thing that he had going for him, but oh boy did the writers do a number on his character. Now I just can't wait until he is killed off - unless he is fixed, of course. I agree with you, though. This show is turning out to be much better than I had expected it to be. It doesn't hurt that there are a lot of scenes with Tyler Hoechlin shirtless, either. Dylan (Stiles) is such a scene-stealer! Can't wait for the second season.
I agree with you on how he seems lost during his scenes. The actor is half to blame, but the writing is the other. He came off as too many things at once to appeal to anyone, I think. He is brooding, manipulative, arrogant, among many other things, but he also shows heart, compassion, and has that whole "misunderstood" thing going on. Compound that with the lack of a back-story on his character, along with the other minor characters (although Lydia may develop a lot more in Season 2 - so happy for her), he is just a weak filler character.
I could start a whole discussion on all the characters and the shows elements, but alas. Another time, another website (which there are probably some dedicated to this kind of stuff).
P.S. I like your recaps. Short and sweet.
Last week's episode was not so good and screwed up the characterization of Jackson a lot. I think he can still end up as a likable "villain" (like Draco Malfoy or Zuko from The Last Airbender) but the actor who plays him (Colton) is just awful. He's been overshadowed by Tyler and Dylan a lot. Compare that to Mark Salling - who plays Puck on Glee - who won over the viewers in Season One with his portrayal of his likable villain. (It was all downhill after that though).
I actually think it might be the age gap. Colton is a few years older than Tyler and Dylan, and he just seems lost in the scenes.
