Last night, Teen Wolf returned with season 4 episode 2 entitled, “117.”
Teen Wolf season 4, episode 3, titled “Muted,” starts with a character named Sean (Glenn McCuen) venturing out of his home during the evening calling for Willow. When he doesn’t discover his pet, he retreats inside, however something appears to be off. Nobody is noting him, and its evident he has an unusual feeling.
He discovers Willow, his feline, underneath his cot, however she’s covered in blood. After that, he hears his family shouting as they’re killed. We see that the executioner is a man without a mouth, however before he can kill Sean, he escapes through the window.
In the following scene, Braeden (Meaghan Tandy) is examining what it will take for Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) and Peter to hire her to find Kate (Jill Wagner) and not turn her over to the Calaveras. Then, Peter (Ian Bohen) has a bit of a breakdown about his lack of cash and the possibility of getting a job.
Lacrosse makes a terrific passageway in the next scene, where we are introduced to a new character, Liam (Dylan Sprayberry), who challenges Scott (Tyler Posey) on the field.
That is by all account not the only issue the young men are confronting, as both are having cash issues. At the hospital, we see that they too are having money problems. Sean appears bleeding and traumatized.
Elsewhere, Kira’s parents want to move back to New York so she and Scott don’t exactly know where their relationship stands, and Malia (Shelley Hennig) is having quite her share of issues in school.
We then see the man without a mouth feeding himself through a tube and staring at a computer screen, which is loaded with an unfathomable arrangement of numbers, letters, and images.
As Scott stresses over not consequently being captain for the lacrosse team this year, we see him and Stiles challenge with Liam. Things go to an unexpected end when Scott inadvertently injured Liam and he has to be taken to the hospital.
Luckily, one great thing came out of tryouts, it appears the Coach wants Kira (Arden Cho) to join the team too!
Over at Derek’s loft, Braeden lets him know she realizes what he needs from Kate, that he needs what she stole from him, which was his actual nature, as was reflected in his eyes. Derek gives her a week to find Kate.
Scott and Kira finally have the discussion they’ve been meaning to have, and Scott apologizes for kissing her earlier on in the day. He leaves, however rapidly returns, saying that he’s not really sorry. They kiss again, and share a cute moment.
The episode turns sinister, nonetheless, when Lydia (Holland Roden) appears at Sean’s home and Deputy Parrish (Ryan Kelley) discovers her there. The faces in the wall return, and Lydia discovers a mystery entryway. The two of them enter and discover a group of bodies hanging up in freezer room.
Kira utilizes the For Sale sign for katana practice, while Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) helps Malia study. Malia shares her corky thing with the highlighters (which delightfully reflects how Stiles utilizes the strings on his board for the mysteries around Beacon Hills), and when Stiles tries to help her with math utilizing Lydia’s notes, he sees that Lydia hadn’t been taking notes at all. Rather, her journal is loaded with the same combo of letters, numbers, and images that was on the computer screen the man without a mouth was taking a look at.
Lydia calls Scott in a frenzy, letting him know that he needs to find Sean. At that point Mama McCall (Melissa Ponzio) goes into Sean’s room, she finds him eating the officer that was positioned outside his room. Sean attacks Melissa, however Scott comes to the rescue. Tragically, Liam is right amidst the action and gets taken by Sean.
Scott discovers them on the top of the roof and tries to get Sean to stop what he’s doing. That’s when we discover Sean is a Wendigo, and as he tries to attack Liam, Scott stops him, however Liam goes over the side of the roof. He clings, just barely, and Scott is forced to bite him in order to keep a grasp on him. Sean is killed by the man without a mouth, who strolls away without hurting Scott, allowing Scott to pull Liam to safety.
The episode ends with Scott looking down at Liam, who is screaming from the pain of the bite.
