TV Review: Teen Wolf: Required Reading(5.06)

                                           Teen Wolf: Required Reading(5.06)Review
  • I liked how this episode started with a flash forward of what will happen once they read the book with Scott saying that they should have never read the book which made me really interested to see what led to that point.
  • I liked that Malia was there to protect Scott from the dread doctor when he was being attacked and for some reason needed his inhaler again.
  • I find it concerning that the whole lacrosse field is covered with holes that chimeras come from.
  • I liked how Stiles and Malia were going over who's the chimeras are and how many there are with the Sheriff. I liked that the Sheriff figured out that Donovan was a chimera and liked how after Donovan's name came up that Stiles got quiet and started to separate himself from his dad and Malia do to his guilt. I liked that the Sheriff noticed that Stiles got quiet suddenly.
  • I liked how stiles pointed out that the people chosen to be chimeras were teenagers who weren't chosen at random and that they should try to figure out why they were chosen.
  • I liked that Parrish is teaching Lydia how to fight but I dislike all the sexual tension that was in that scene.
  • I liked that when Lydia thought she was remembering the dread doctors doing something to her during her surgery that she wanted to remember what it was.
  • I liked that Lydia remarked that her mom's book club usually had more wine and I liked that Stiles pointed out that the books they read probably don't cause violent hallucinations.
  • I liked how Malia would be there to look after the rest of the pack while they read the book since they knew remembering would cause hallucinations and they thought it best that someone was their to make sure they were all safe.
  • I liked how Lydia said that maybe her mom should read the book since then she might stop denying what she saw a few episodes ago.
  • I liked how dramatic they made reading a book seem because while it is plot important in this case it's not the type of thing that's usually viewed as dramatic.
  • I was a bit worried about Kira when she was reading the book since she wasn't able to read since the text got messed up in her head.
  • I liked that Malia explained that remembering what happened was like being in the memory rather than just watching it.
  • I liked that Malia noticed that Stiles had gotten hurt on his shoulder but I dislike that he lied to her about where it came from. I liked that Stiles asked Malia if she saw more than just the crash but I disliked that she didn't tell him about seeing the desert wolf. I'm sad that this two are keeping secrets that they don't really need to keep from each other and I'm angry that Theo knows this and will likely use this information to his advantage.
  • I liked that Liam just showed up to the place where Hayden works and gave her forty-five dollars because she said he owed her two hundred. I like that Liam is trying to bury the hatch with Hayden when it comes to what happened in sixth grade even though she's completely against that.
  • I thought Theo was super creepy with how he leaned over Kira while she slept and recorded what she was saying.
  • I liked that Scott, Stiles and Kira all agreed to look after each other the day after they read the book. I also liked that they discussed how something must have to trigger the memory for them remember anything.
  • I liked that when Lydia suspected that Sydney might be chimera she followed her after she dropped AP Bio but I especially liked that once it made clear that she wasn't that Lydia offered to help her fix her hair.
  • I found the memory of Lydia seeing her grandmother right she put a screw driver to her head to be really frightening and traumatizing. I also found it interesting that Lydia's grandmother spefically warned Lydia that someone was coming for them.
  • I liked that Scott was there for Lydia when she woke up and was there checking that she was okay. I also liked that Lydia's mom was worried about her as well.
  • I liked how mason told Kira that he did research on kitsunes because he met a kitsune and I liked that he was able to explain to her why she couldn't read the book which was because the book is one be long language trick which messes with the fox in her.
  • I was sad that Scott made the decision to drop AP Bio even though he clearly didn't want to have to do that I understand why he did. Also I was kind of mad at the teacher who kept going on about how he should have thought about the amount of work the class was before he signed up for it and how he's making a mistake and all that because Scott isn't dropping the class because he's lazy or the works too hard but because he doesn't have the time to do the work because he's too busy trying to keep everyone alive and this is something that the teacher can never possibly get.
  • I was very worried about Scott once he started having an asthma attack especially since he doesn't have an inhaler anywhere near him.
  • I found Scott's memory of having apparently seen his dog be eaten by another dog and then having a really serious asthma attack when he was little to be sad and traumatizing. I'm starting to wonder if the book unlocks traumatic memories rather than just memories involving the dread doctors.
  • I liked how Mason and Brett were discussing what to look for when trying to spot a chimera I just really liked the scene and found them cute together.
  • I liked how Liam and Hayden were kind of competing with each other with them seeing who could score the most goals in their respective sport, Liam with lacrosse and Hayden with soccer.
  • I liked that it was revealed that what happened in sixth grade with Liam and Hayden was that they broke each other's noses close to picture day.
  • I liked that Liam rushed to give Scott his inhaler and that he was able to save him and I liked that Hayden saw that and gave a look that said something like maybe he's not so bad.
  • I liked how Lydia figured out that her memories from the hospital with the dread doctors have more to do with her being a banshee rather than something that happened to her.
  • I liked that Malia went to Theo to ask if he was going to tell anyone else that she saw more than she said she saw and I liked that after he said he wouldn't that Malia became suspicious of him and basically threatened him before he could threaten her, I'm just really happy that Malia doesn't trust him and that she still doesn't like him.
  • I find it strange that Scott doesn't find it creepy that Theo recorded Kira's voice while she slept.
  • I'm sad that Scott doesn't think he can trust Kira anymore but I'm glad that the reason for this is because he fears that she's no longer in control of herself.
  • I found Stiles memory of his mother believing that he was trying to kill him to be super sad and traumatizing. I also thinks this explains the guilt he feels regarding her death since he's probably internalized what she said and despite it not making any real sense started to believe what she said to be true at least a subconscious level.
  • I find it very creepy that Lydia saw that the dread doctors were doing things to people while they were unconscious during surgeries.
  • I'm glad that Liam and Hayden seem to be on somewhat better terms by the end of the episode and I'm a bit worried about Hayden now that we know she's a chimera because things haven't ended well for them so far.
  • While I'm glad that Theo saved Stiles from being killed by the chimera I hate how he did it only to manipulate Stiles into keeping quiet about Theo's kill which is something that could have been prevented if Theo hadn't really wanted to kill  the guy(unlike Donovan's death where it was both an accident and clearly in self defense) so I hate Theo talking about the two deaths as if they were the same thing because they aren't and I also just hate him having something to hold over Stiles head.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.
