Teen Wolf Recap 7/28/14: Season 4 Episode 6 “Orphaned”

Tonight on MTV, TEEN WOLF returns with the sixth episode in its fourth season called “Orphaned.” On tonight’s episode, Scott is forced to help a dangerous enemy. Meanwhile, Derek and Malia track down an old ally.

On last week’s episode of Teen Wolf, Scott, Stiles and Kira played their first Lacrosse game; meanwhile, Lydia sought out help from a fellow banshee in an effort to crack the second third of the deadpool, which features the names of supernatural beings living in Beacon Hills — and who are currently being hunted down by a team of assassins. After three seasons of her powers controlling her, Lydia wanted to be the one in control. The banshee experimented with attempting to control her powers with Stiles in Season 3, but learning when everyone’s lives were at risk created a high-pressure situation and, ultimately, proved too taxing on her soul. Perhaps this season Lydia will be able to assert more control over her Banshee side.

Did you watch the last episode? If you missed it, well, don’t worry, we have a full and detailed recap for you right here.

Tonight’s episode is going to be really interesting. You’re not going to want to miss even a minute! We will be live blogging TEEN WOLF on MTV beginning at 10 PM EST. In the meantime, enjoy the sneak peek preview of tonight’s episode below.


The show opens up “Four Weeks Earlier.” Kate is in the backseat of a car. She wakes up. It’s raining. She grabs her gun. There’s a cassette in the car’s front seat and she grabs it. It reads, “Play me.” She puts the tape in the player, and there’s a man talking about the Hale family pendant that helped the young werewolves learn control.

Next (time jump), we see Kate questioning an assassin about the tape she was given. She wants to know who sent her the tape. She asks if he received one too. He says no; however, he reveals a couple of teenagers were also given some. Probably Garrett and Violet, the teen assassins in Beacon Hills.

There’s raucous in the locker room after the incident with Violet and Garrett. The cops take Violet away. Garrett is missing.

Meanwhile, Brett is seizing after being drugged with the rare species of wolfsbane. Dr. Deacon tries to make an incision to remove the poison, but Brett is proving too strong. Derek can’t contain him because he’s losing his powers. Thankfully, Peter walks in and knocks Brett out. When Deacon saves Brett, Brett begins uttering, “The sun, the moon, the truth.” Peter and Derek immediately recognize the mantra. It’s Bhuddist. “Satomi,” Peter says, and we see an image of the old werewolf woman who resided in Mrs. Yukimura’s internment camp all those years ago.

Back in the locker room, Scott discovers a pile of cash in Garrett’s locker; however, he says that he’s found nothing when Liam inquires.

At home, we hear Melissa talking on the phone with the power company. There electricity has been turned off. We see that Scott has taken Garrett’s money.

Liam is running through the woods with Mason but, before long, Liam takes off. He’s hit by a car. Garrett gets out of the car with a dagger.

In class, Kira, Scott, and Stiles are all missing. While in class, Malia here’s a voice whisper to her. She leaves to go see who it is. It’s Derek. He wants help locating the pack that Brett belongs to.

Meanwhile, Lydia and Stiles visit Deputy Parrish at the station. They reveal to Parrish that he’s on the deadpool; however, he seems a bit clueless to everything. He’s worth $5 million. Lydia says that they need Meredith’s help to crack the last cipher. Parrish is reluctant to help them because the last time she tried to help them Lydia almost gave her a nervous breakdown.

In the school, the gang searches for Liam, who’s gone missing.  Scott gets a phone call from Garrett.

Liam is in REAL BIG TROUBLE. He’s been thrown into a well.

Scott meets Garrett in the school bus yard. Garrett wants Scott to stop the car that’s transferring Violet to a federal facility. If he doesn’t help, then Liam will die. He’s been stabbed with the poisoned dagger. If the poison gets to his heart, then, according to Garrett, “bad things will happen.”

Violet is being transferred . . . Scott is with Garrett.

Parrish, Lydia, and Stiles arrive at Eichen House to get help from Meredith.

Garrett and Scott tail the car. But before they can stop the car themselves, someone has gotten to it first. The SUV has been overturned, and Sheriff Stilinski, while not dead, is really shaken up. Next, Berserkers come onto the road. Garrett thinks that he can battle them, but he proves no match for them and he’s quickly stabbed in the heart by one. Another one knocks out Scott.

Meredith says she wants to help but that she can’t give them the third cipher key because “he” doesn’t want her to reveal it. They ask who? Meredith says, “The Benefactor.”

Scott is saved by Deacon and Argent. Scott says that it was Kate.

Malia and Derek seem to be failing at finding the Sun/Moon/Truth Pack, but Malia says they need to start thinking like Stiles. She says that maybe they aren’t hiding where a werewolf would hide. Maybe, since they are Buddhists, they are hiding in a spot special to the Buddhist religion. Derek suggests they look East. They prepare to go to the East Lookout Point.

Meanwhile, Liam struggles to get out of the well. He climbs high, but then he falls. After he gathers himself, he has a flashback to the advice Scott’s given him — about control, about how to access his anger, about how to summon his strength.

Lydia questions Meredith. She wants to know the identity of The Benefactor. Meredith refuses to reveal anything. She screams I DON’T KNOW and goes into a banshee scream.

Scott and Argent arrive at a building, hopefully to find Kate. He’s brought his big guns to deal with the Berserkers.

Derek and Malia arrive at the lookout point. They find a pile of bodies.

In the warehouse, Kate says, “You shouldn’t have come.” Scott says that they want to talk Violet. Kate tells him to walk away but Chris doesn’t listen and begins shooting. Kate and her Berserkers attack.

In the forest, a bloody hand reaches up. Derek runs over to her.

Meanwhile, Chris and Scott do their best against Kate’s cronies, but they’re not getting very far. Scott is thrown through one of the walls and finds Violet murdered. One of Kate’s henchmen is about to kill Chris when she says, “NO!”

Scott is crestfallen because now, with Violet gone, it seems as if he’ll never be able to find Liam.

Liam struggle in the well and he lets out a massive roar. Scott hears him and, just as Liam’s about to fall again, Scott grabs his arm.

Meanwhile, Stiles and Lydia attempt to crack the final code. Stiles says that maybe the final cipher isn’t someone who already has died (like was true with the other ciphers) but maybe someone who is GOING to die. Lydia closes her eyes and channels something. She blindly types a name on the keyboard: Derek. It cracks the code. Meredith is on the list.

Lydia calls Parrish to get protection for Meredith, but Parrish says that Meredith hung herself.

Scott and Stiles unload the money he took from Garrett’s locker. Out of the bag also falls a cassette tape.

Peter finds Kate in the sewers. He says that he can help her control her beastly nature . . . but he wants something in return: his money. But before the episode ends, he admits what he really wants (what he’s always wanted): power.
