Teen Wolf:Season 5, Episode 6

Previously On Teen Wolf

After being bitten on the shoulder by Donovan's hand that had teeth, Stiles runs in the library of his high school, with Donovan close behind him. Stiles gets caught and tries to climb the scaffolding within the library and pulls a pin that makes a bunch of metal bars fall on top of Donovan impaling him to the floor and killing him instantly. 

The group are in possession of The Dread Doctors book and made copies for everyone else to read so they all know what to expect to happen. Scott finds out the author of the book is a man named Valack and him and 3 of his friends go and visit Valack at the Echo House to find out the truth and the mysteries being the book he had written.

Lydia & Stiles are talking to Valack about the book and finding out once you have you have read the it, it makes you see more, opening your eyes to things you haven't seen before. The conversation is interrupted when The Dread Doctors barge into the Echo House Asylum and ripping out Valack's third eye he had in his forehead, with Valack cracking the prison glass with Lydia's recorded scream she did for him earlier. 

When most of the gang is of to find out what the book has install for them, Malia is left alone and Theo offers her to drive his car, since he thinks she needs more practice in driving. Malia is driving his car and gets a terrible flash back to when her mother got killed by the Desert Fox, crashing the car in the woods and making Malia wonder more about the death of her mother. 

Episode 6 - Required Reading

Book Club

The whole packed are gathered around a table which has copies of The Dread Doctors book on it, with the group discussing that some of them might get in to trouble when they read it, "Like Judy...In chapter 11" says Malia since she found the book first and read most of it already. Lydia tells the group she's been having visions of The Dread Doctors, telling the group she needs to find out if they've done anything to her and goes to read the book, with the rest of them following her lead. (Once reading the book, they will obtain memories to see what The Dread Doctors have done to them) "Can anyone feel anything yet?" Scott asks his fellow book club pack but they respond with answers that has nothing to do with the book like, "Tired" & "Hungry." Theo was looking around the room like he's read the book before, seeing if they respond to the book and Kira is struggling to read the words, with them going blurry within her vision.
In the kitchen is Stiles and Malia making coffee for the group and Stiles is rubbing his shoulder where Donovan bit him with his teeth covered hand. "What did you do to you shoulder? I can smell the blood," says Malia. With Stiles replying with a lie that his engine hood of his van fell on him and his heart beat is racing faster as Theo can hear him from in the next room. Theo is still ears dropping on Stiles and Malia as Malia explains about her vision to Stiles, that it felt like she was in the vision rather than a movie playing in her head. Theo turns around as Malia catches him not reading his book and turns around seconds after she see's him, getting some useful information from the two of them in the kitchen.

I can imagine how intense it would be gathering all your friends to read a book that could potentially get you in major trouble with The Dread Doctors because they could get some flash back memories of some kind and if Lydia has been targeted by The Dread Doctors, she will find out once after finishing the book. If they did do something to Lydia, i think it would be a interesting story to follow and see her cope with finding out the truth, maybe give her the chance to do some investigation work of her own on The Dread Doctors. 

As for Theo ears dropping on Stiles and Malia's conversation in the kitchen, i think he's trying to gather some information about the group so he can tell The Dread Doctors about them and what their next move is, which is pretty smart and the only way The Dread Doctors can have a chance of winning against Scott's pack. It's all a matter of time till one of them finds out the truth about Theo and i think it will either be Stiles or Malia, as both of them have their suspicions of him already. 

Lydia's Vision

Lydia is the first victim of having a flash back moment as she follows someone out of class as the other girl is waiting for Lydia's mother Natalie for school counseling. Lydia asks her if she's OK, while the other girl shows her a handful of her own hair, saying its "Stress" and Lydia goes over to check the bold patch above the girls ear. As she looks at the girls patch above her ear, Lydia's vision turns the patch in to a bloody hole and makes a noise as if she's been winded in the stomach and collapses on the floor.

Lydia can hear voices saying "I told you to stay in the car" and the sound of a drilling noises, with her waking up in a unknown place as she walks through the hallway as a little girl. She turns to one of the rooms to her left where she hears the sound of a drill and see's her mother saying "Why would you do this to yourself" as she looks at the dead body in the bathtub where the women had killed herself by drilling a hole in her own head. Lydia's mother turns to Lydia and yells at her "I Told you to stay in the car, Lydia! I said stay in the car!"
Credit to MTV
The dead women in the bathtub wakes up, telling Lydia "Their coming Lydia, their coming for all of us." Scott is there telling Lydia to breath and asking her if she's OK, with her waking up and realising where she is, telling Scott she's OK. Scott and Theo ask her what she remembered, telling them that she saw her grandmother and when she's about to explain, her mother runs in to the room to see if she is OK, telling her that she only fainted and she's fine.

Well that was rather a strange flash back if you ask me, i was totally expecting it to be about The Dread Doctors but got a whole different story from Lydia's vision. It was quite a traumatic scene to watch, seeing someone be killed by drilling a hole in their own head and waking up to tell Lydia a message, which could mean a couple of things. The message itself could be about The Dread Doctors themselves or something bigger and more dangerous than The Dread Doctors, maybe something their trying to make to fight against Scott's pack? Also, we find out the dead person in the bathtub was Lydia's Grandmother and letting us know that the visions won't just be about The Dread Doctors but hidden memories from their subconscious minds.

Scott's Vision

Scott's about to sign his Drop form so he can drop out of one of his classes with him saying to his teacher "It's to much time, to much work" with a response from his teacher "To be a veterinarian?" and Scott begins to struggle in breathing, telling him that he shouldn't drop out of class. He starts to have fragments of flashback images of a hand covered in blood while holding a dog lead, a hospital bed being toed away and of a barking dog attacking something. His teacher asks him "Whats happening?" "I think... i'm having an asthma attack," says Scott.

He is now standing inside the emergency room in the hospital, seeing a younger version of himself being toed away by doctors and nurses in a hospital bed. He can see his mother trying to comfort him while he lies in the bed, holding the dogs collar lead that's covered in blood and asking "Where's Roxy?" With Scott still in the school class room struggling to breath and lying up against the teachers desk. "Scott you need to breath" his teacher tells him. Liam who is practicing Lacrosse outside, hears that Scott is in trouble and runs in the school with his inhaler, snapping Scott from his vision by glowing his wolf eyes towards Scott so he can breath in the inhaler.
Credit to MTV
Another Childhood memory we see as Scott see's himself as a young kid and asking what happened to his dog, not given any major clues on what actually happened with Scott and the dog but it must of been a bad experience for Scott, since it did make him have an asthma attack. Maybe his dog was protecting Scott from something and ended up dying in the process, with Scott getting injured as well. It was a tough one to try figure out, since there wasn't much information from the flashback. I'm also thinking that Scott might question his wolf-like ability because he looked scared and goes in to a deep thought about his inhaler he used to use, maybe thinking he wouldn't want to go back to that life again of being weak and vulnerable, thinking what else The Dread Doctors might do to him next.

Stiles's Vision

Getting in the empty hospital elevator is Stiles, who is about to meet Lydia who he left in the basement. He can see a reflection of a women standing behind him in the elevator doors and she walks out, with him following her down the hospital hallway. "Mom," he whispers to himself, with him carrying on following her to the roof of the hospital. "Mom, what are you doing?" he asks her as she is stand over the edge of the roof and with his father comes running in from behind him. Stiles's father asks what she is doing on the roof with her replying "I couldn't stand to be in that room, not with him looking at me like that, hes trying to hurt me." Mr Stilinski explains to his wife that she needs to remind herself she has Dementia and it's a disease that makes her think of all kinds of stuff.

She turns around at Stiles, who is 10 years old in the vision and yells at him, "Stop it, Stop looking at me!" While she runs towards him and attacks him, slapping and scratching him till he falls to the ground, with her on top of him who is still attacking him. Stiles wakes up from being attacked by his mother but wakes up being attacked by a Chimera at the same time and Theo comes out from no where to save Stiles from being killed and fights off the Chimera, having an equal fight until Theo grabs the Chimera around the neck and rips out his throat, letting him choke on his own blood on the floor. "Stiles, you can't say anything, please, don't say anything," Theo asks. "Why not?" Stiles replies, "Because i never said anything about Donovan."
Credit to MTV
Dun, Dun Duuuuuun! Wow, what a great vision and fight scene. Did Stiles already know about his own mother thinking that he wanted to kill her and that she had dementia? If not he must have a lot of questions for his dad, i mean i would anyway. It also makes me think if maybe his mother committed suicide or ran away so she didn't have to put up with being paranoid with her own son but if you're reading this and know the answer, please let me know!

Also that fight scene was epic with all the fight moves, the chimera getting thrown long distances and sparks flying everywhere from when the Chimera bitten through the power cables on top of the roof. When he ripped his throat out, i thought it was a bit extreme to do that since Scott never really kills his victims unless he really needs to but Theo did it with ease, telling us a lot about his characteristics. Plus he knows about Stiles and Donovan! That's going to be a hard situation to get out of now that Theo knows and could potentially ruin Stiles's life and maybe even blackmail him with this information. 

Close Your Eyes

Liam is following Hayden around her workplace like a lost puppy, trying to give her back the money that he owed her for quite some time now. "I know its for your medication, so please take the money," Liam tells her. She refuses and tells him about the medication she's taking for a kidney transplant she had a couple of years ago and Liam thought it was because he punched her in the face by accident a while back. "He never stops bragging about it" as she tells Liam about his boss who is speaking to someone from quite a distance away, with Liam listening in with his wolf super hearing ability. As he listened to the conversation, he looks back at Hayden and tells her to close her eyes for "3 seconds" and she does so after contemplating it. She closes her eyes while Liam grabs a glow stick and snaps it, holding it up to her face and tells her to open her eyes and seeing a different coloured lens inside of her eyes, making Liam have his suspicions about her.

This was a short and small scene but i thought it was necessary to include in this post because i thought it could be useful for the remaining episodes. I'm sure loads of Teen Wolf fans was asking the same questions when we saw her eyes shine a different colour. What does that mean? Is she a wolf but doesn't no it yet? Or something else? Or is she going blind? We want answers now!! OK, i'm going a couple of episodes back, to recap and connect the dots together...Remember when she got grabbed by Tracey in the classroom and got her wrist all scratched, with blood everywhere? And then went to the toilet to clean the wound but she didn't appear to have a single mark on her? Well she's obviously a supernatural being of some kind because she healed herself, so i hope that answers part of your wondering minds.

Vision vs Reality

Scott, Malia and Theo are at the hospital and Scott tells them both to go find Stiles when he goes to look for his mother. As soon as he steps out of the elevator, he gets attacked by one of The Dread Doctors and choked up against the wall. The Dread Doctor holds him there as he uses his other arm to electrocute him with his fingertips, while Scott struggles to get his inhaler, dropping it on the floor as he thinks he's in another vision. The Dread Doctor drops him on the floor and smashes the inhaler with his metal boot, picking him up again but even higher and the elevator doors open with Malia standing there with her sharp teeth growling at The Dread Doctor as he chucks Scott to the floor again.

She runs from out the elevator to The Dread Doctor and flying-kicks him in the chest, only pushing him back a couple of feet, while Scott's mother Melissa goes over to Scott and gets him inside the elevator. Malia is still fighting off the robotic being as the two of them get to safety and Melissa shouts Malia to come back, "RUN!" she screams and Malia barely gets away with The Dread Doctor close behind her as she runs to the elevator. The elevator doors closes behind Malia as The Dread Doctor was close and nearly gets inside but the door closes in time. "We should of never read that book" says Scott, who's still lying on the ground from being attacked earlier.
Credit to MTV
I don't get why Scott went to get his inhaler, surely you would think it was real since you're physically being lifted off the floor and choked against the wall, that's just common sense Scott. Also why was there only one Dread Doctor? Were the other two on vacation? Or are they making something in their lab and the one Dread Doctor was to distract Scott and the others from finding out? Maybe! I also have another theory, what if when they read the book it made them enter The Dread Doctors world so they can see them more often than usual, basically like a portal to another supernatural world, that would be interesting if that is the case. Plus the only thing that will make me angry is if the only way by killing The Dread Doctors is destroying the book, that's just cheap and unoriginal and the whole season would of been pointless from the very beginning, so fingers cross they do a good job for the remaining episodes like they have done so far.


Without having any major fight scenes accept towards the end of the episode, i would have to say this is one of my favourite episodes and i really enjoyed writing about it. There's a whole lot of new questions that need answering as we see Liam & Hayden get close, What Hayden could possible be, the mysteries of The Dread Doctors book, what the visions mean and what The Dread Doctors initial plan is. This episode gives us a bunch of new questions for the viewers and i can't wait to find out the answers for the remaining episodes.

There were some other scenes in the episode you might think that was useful to know, like Kira's ability makes her unable to read anything, such as The Dread Doctors book which makes me think, is she the solution on ending The Dread Doctor lives but is unaware of her own abilities? Overall this episode was thrilling, intense, creepy and full of new questions for the viewers and i would rate this in the top best episodes for this season so far.


  1. What did you think of the overall episode?
  2. What was your favourite scene? & Why?
  3. What was your least favourite scene? & Why?
  4. Will Kira be able to control her kitsune ability?
  5. Are the visions a hidden message?
  6. What will happen next with Stiles & Theo?
  7. What do The Dread Doctors have planned?
  8. What could be Hayden be?
  9. Who will find out about Theo?
  10. What will next episode?


  1. they should not have read that book! i think lydia's vision is part of her larger story arc & her family. it didn't make any sense that theo wants stiles to keep the death of the chimera a secret because theo's eyes are going to start glowing blue. i hope Hayden turns out to be a new thing. stupid dread doctors (are we really calling them that?) mike needs to stop flirting with mallia. she is going to send him back to rosewood. (seriously, why wasn't he "A"?)

  2. Wait who's mike? I forgot haha! And I agree what you're saying but they had to read the book to see visions and clue to where the dread doctors might of been. I think Theo might have the ability to hide his true self and get away with murder, hence why he can hide his blue eyes!

  3. I love it. I hope that more and more Blogger will use this feature in the future, because it just makes the internet better I think!
