Teen Wolf Recap 8/4/14: Season 4 Episode 7 “Weaponized”

Tonight on MTV, TEEN WOLF returns with the seventh episode in its fourth season called “Weaponized.” On tonight’s episode, a mysterious outbreak hits the high school.

For those of you unfamiliar with the show, the fourth season of Teen Wolf is a supernatural drama and to some extent based on the Teen Wolf 1985 film of the same name.

On last week’s episode of Teen Wolf, Scott was forced into helping a dangerous enemy; Derek and Malia tracked an old ally. 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.

On tonight’s episode, the school is overtaken by a mysterious outbreak. Also, we’ll meet another assassin who will be trying to cross names off the Dead Pool, the hit list of supernatural creatures put out by the mysterious Benefactor. The new assassin will be called The Chemist. Malia and Stiles are going to hit some rough patches when we see “a crucial moment between Stiles and Malia that may threaten to destroy their relationship.”

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 with someone working in a lab. He’s clearly a scientist, and he seems to be experimenting on a werewolf. Meanwhile, Scott and Stiles are listening to the cassette tape, which instructs the assassins how to effectively receive the wire transfers.

Scott and Stiles count the money. There’s $500K there, and they chat about what they’re going to do with it. They don’t know whether they’re going to give it back to the Hales or keep it.

Derek rushes Braeden to the hospital after she was shot (remember: last episode we saw her lying, almost dead, amongst Satomi’s fallen pack of werewolves).

At the animal clinic, Deacon has a rough encounter with Satomi, the leader of The Sun, The Moon, The Truth pack.

At the school, the students (everyone except for Lydia) begin the PSAT. Coach is supposed to help Lydia’s mom proctor the exam, but he hasn’t showed up yet. She goes to check on him in his office, and she finds him passed out. She returns to the classroom thinking that, after fifteen years of being sober, he’s fallen off the wagon. In the classroom, the official for the PSAT says that two teachers must be present. This man resembles the mad scientist we saw in the opening scene. He becomes disgruntled and says that they must begin.

A few minutes into the test, a student passes out and presents a strange rash on her wrist. Lydia’s mom goes to check on Coach again, only to find a nasty rash on his back. Lydia’s mom phones the CDC.

Individuals in hazard material suits show up and set up necessary containment centers. They seal the building and establish a quarantine. Nobody in or out.

Outside the school, the press arrives, as does Sheriff S.

Inside, Stiles says that it might be smallpox, but the Mysterious Guy says it’s unlikely and that it’s probably something worse.

At the animal clinic, we see that Satomi has brought a member of her pack to see Dr. Deacon in an effort to cure him of this mysterious virus he’s contracted. She said that it’s beyond deadly and that she doesn’t know what to do.

At the hospital, Melissa wakes up Braeden with a drug. Braeden reveals that the werewolf pack wasn’t just killed. They were infected with a virus designed to kill werewolves.

Meanwhile, in the school, Scott has been infected and struggles to control his beast.

Lydia is at her lake house. She’s going through Meredith Walker’s belongings. She begins listening to her record player, trying to conjure up her powers, and attempts to commune with Meredith. She tells her that, if she’s listening, that she could really use her help. Lydia just doesn’t understand why she can’t summon her powers at will, like Meredith could, and wants to gain control over her abilities — at least a little bit. She just wants to help people with them. She also tells Meredith that she’s sorry — that she’s sorry she couldn’t help her in the long run. As Lydia puts Meredith’s belongings away, she discovers a photograph of Meredith in the pile. In the photo, Meredith seems to be standing in the same room as is Lydia.

Meanwhile, in the school, the virus begins to take effect on Scott, Malia, Kira, and, for some reason, Stiles.

Outside, everyone panics and wonders what’s going on.

The gang thinks they might’ve found a secret way out of the building. They locate a secret Hale passageway out of the school. Only problem: They need the claws of a Hale werewolf to unlock the passageway. Luckily, Malia is with them, and she successfully opens the vault. (They ask her to open it, however, without informing her she’s Peter’s daughter). She knows they are keeping something from her, but she simply thinks that they are keeping from her the fact that she’s on the deadpool.

Deacon and Satomi take the sick werewolf to the hospital to see Melissa. But they’re too late. He dies in the elevator.

Meanwhile, Scott, Stiles, Malia, and Kira are gathered in the Hale vault.

Outside, Lydia talks to Sheriff S. She wants to know what’s happening — because her mom and friends are in there.

In the vault, Scott tells Stiles that they need to tell Malia that Peter is her father. Stiles isn’t so sure this is a good idea — because Peter is not a good guy. He’s the only one not on the list and Stiles finds this suspicious.

In the morgue, Deacon dissects the body of the departed werewolf. He says that he thinks he might know what this virus is. He says that Scott and the others are going to die soon if they don’t get an antidote.

Stiles stands over Malia and tries to wake her up. Black bile is dripping from her mouth. Stiles tells her that he is going to go get help because, whatever’s happening, it’s influencing their bodies (Malia’s and Scott’s and Kira’s) moreso than it’s influencing him. As Stiles leaves, Malia begins to cry.

In the hospital, Braeden wakes up after a nap. Derek is watching over her. She asks what he’s still doing here. He says, “I’m protecting my investment.”

Sheriff S talks with Lydia. He asks her if she has a “feeling.” She says that people are definitely going to die — and it’s not just a “feeling.”

Meanwhile, in the morgue, Deacon and the team realize that Satomi wasn’t infected with the disease (a radical form of canine distemper) because she’s been inoculated. Turns out she’s been drinking a special tea all her life — which Deacon reveals is actually a powerful remedy against illness. Satomi used to bring the tea as a gift when she visited Talia Hale. It’s quite rare, but Derek reveals that his mother kept some of the tea — and it’s hiding in their vault. Of course it is.

Back in the school, Stile starts to piece together how the virus entered the school. He realizes that Coach is the only adult today who’s gotten sick, so he visits his office to investigate hoping to find some answers. There, he runs into the Chemist, the man responsible for bringing the virus into the building. The Chemist pulls a gun on Stiles, as he can’t have him knowing who’s behind the attack.

In the school, all the humans mysteriously get better.

However, Malia and Scott and Kira are getting worse and worse.

The Chemist asks Stiles where his friends are hiding. He won’t tell him. Before he’s about to get shot, Scott’s dad comes in and shoots the Chemist in the head. Scott’s dad tells Stiles that Melissa called him to tell them there’s a cure: the reishi mushrooms (used to make the tea).

Stiles rushes down to the vault and tells Scott about the cure.

Scott finds the glass jar of mushrooms just in time. He accidentally drops the glass jar. Luckily, just the fumes from the magical mushrooms cure them all.

Damn. Pretty sure that’s not how it works but . . . okay.

After Malia comes to her senses, she finds a fallen copy of the hit list on the floor and discovers that she’s Peter Hale’s daughter. Yikes. She storms out angry.
