And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the end of Teen Wolf.
On Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 20, the pack came together and defeated Gerard and the anuke-ite. I don't know about you, but I could have gone my entire life without watching Scott McCall blind himself with his claws.
You know, if you ignore all the problems with these final ten episodes – the lack of repercussions and overall pacing – then the finale is pretty good.
It's a lot of fun to watch, mainly because (most) our favorites are back. Sadly, Isaac and his scarves didn't make an appearance, and neither did Danny nor Kira.
The scene with Stiles updating Lydia, Malia, and Scott about his time at Quantico and how he "saved" Derek's ass, for instance, was absolutely fantastic. I mean as if the story itself wasn't funny enough, we had Derek correcting Stiles, and Lydia, Malia, and Scott reacting to the story.
That conversation was a masterpiece. It was hilarious and a reminder of what the show used to be.
We needed a scene like that in the finale; a callback to earlier times and a chance to catch our breaths and laugh. Yes, the final fight was upon them, but you need a little levity before going into battle, right?
Stiles: So literally day one of my internship and up comes this slide about this guy they have been chasing in the woods in North America.
Malia: I thought you were in South America.
Derek: I was. The bodies of the werewolves I told you about? They blamed me.
Stiles: So I learned that the FBI has cornered this feral, mass murdering unsub.
Derek: I found a group of hunters gathering in a meeting place. I was trying to get information.
Stiles: Well the FBI found out about it too, and they were planning a SWAT assault to take him down, dead or alive, and, as we all know though, with Derek it's preferably dead.
Stiles: So I convinced them to take me on the field op.
Lydia: You convinced the FBI to bring an intern onto an extremely dangerous field operation?
Derek: I'm surprised he didn't convince them that he could lead it.
Stiles: I tried. It didn't work. Anyway, long story short, I basically, you know, had to save his life.
Derek: That's not how it happened.
Stiles: Yeah, I may have left out a detail, but that's the gist of what happened. That's the essential essence of it.
Derek: You couldn't walk.
Stiles: I was limping.
Derek: You couldn't walk, and I know that because I was carrying you.
Stiles: They shot my toe! You want to see it? My toe was caught in the crossfire. It was obliterated.
Things would not have felt right if everyone jumped into action without first catching each other up on the events of their lives. Stiles always, always, makes time for sarcasm. It's just who he is.
All the reunions in this finale were what we hoped to see more of throughout the final ten episodes. But hey, at least we finally got them.
But, of course, you can't ignore the problems the final ten episodes have had.
Argent, Kate, and Derek were in Brazil on Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 21, but somehow they both managed to show up in Beacon Hills in what seemed like an instant. Derek left saying he was going to track down Kate, but somehow there was an FBI raid and road trip to Beacon Hills that happened somewhere in between.
You'd like to hope that the Brazil trip actually happened earlier than the Deucalion blind fighting training, but it's hard to believe that because there's no logical place to put that trip. It's something we're expected just to jump over and not think too hard about.
It's just like how Stiles and Derek showed up in Roscoe, even though Stiles gave Roscoe to Scott. Perhaps Scott left Roscoe at home, and when Stiles and Derek first arrived in Beacon Hills, they went to Scott's house first. It was there that Stiles decided to take Roscoe out for a drive.
You really shouldn't have to make leaps to attempt to rationalize how events happened, but, hey, this is Teen Wolf we're talking about.
Instead of closing out the series with an ending, Teen Wolf gives us a continuation.
It was a glimpse into what Scott and the pack's future looks like. They are all still working together; they are still a pack that's growing and fighting the good fight.
It is a fitting ending. We started this journey with Scott being bitten, and now, over the course of six seasons, we've witnessed Scott grow into a true alpha, an alpha who has made his own beta, who has led his pack through multiple wars and come out the other side.
The ending showcased that Scott's a badass alpha that's taking the fight and expanding his pack outside of Beacon Hills.
Teen Wolf has always been about Scott's journey, but, of course, we fell in love with his friends along the way. While some shippers might have hoped for proof that their ship has and will forever sail, the ending leaves it open to fans' interpretations.
You can assume that since Stiles and Lydia drove up together at the very end that they're dating, or you can just think they happened to catch a ride together if Stydia isn't your cup of tea.
I'm going to tell you a story, maybe it will sound familiar. There was this kid, 16, alone, and running for his life. He couldn't see them, but he could hear them getting closer. They had guns, crossbows. They were hunting him. It started on the night of the full moon. Something came at him. Something bit him, and it changed his life. It changed everything.
There's no right or wrong answer here, and personally, I like that about the finale. All that matters is that our pack is still together, fighting the good fight, no matter where they all might be in life.
When their pack needs them, everyone shows up. Now, if only someone could give Liam a haircut...
What did you think of the series finale of Teen Wolf? Which reunion was your favorite? Are you happy with how it ended?
Share your thoughts and favorite moment in the comments below.
My favorite moments are Noah's BAMF takedown of the deputies, Finstock's heroic moment, Derek and Scott's hug, and Stiles and Derek recounting how they met up.
Remember you can watch Teen Wolf online via TV Fanatic.
Villains always get the hottest looks on television.
Often times we will see a goody-goody character go from bland, boring costuming to vampy getups when they transition to the dark side.
Who are some of our favorite villainous style stars on television?
Take a look!
1. Barbara Kean, Gotham Season 3 Episode 22
Barbara Kean is a classic character in the Batman cannon verse. She is best known as being Jim Gordon's wife, and that is how she started out on the show. In Season 1 when she was simply Gordon's fiancé (not yet his wife), she was seen in muted blues and perfect blow outs, features that were easily overlooked. In her evolution into the underworld's baddest crime boss, her outfits became increasingly eye catching. Oversize furs and glam sequins were a staple in season 3, only adding to the 1920's mob mol aesthetic that was her overall attitude.
2. Octavia Blake, The 100 Season 2 Episode 15
So the Grounders on CW's the 100 aren't exactly villains, but they are the primary antagonists to the Sky People who are the main focus of the show. Wild and savage where the Sky People are orderly and militaristic, they serve as the darker, animalistic and more emotionally driven heart of the show. Octavia Blake starts out as what could be the spunky little sister character in Season 1. Anyone who has followed the show from the beginning remembers her joyful "We're back bitches!!" from way back in the pilot episode.
When we first see her she's all jeans, hoodies and stick-straight hair. Basically what you would expect from any Freshman in high school. By the time she becomes a full-fledged Grounder, it's hard even to imagine that she ever looked so clean cut. The leather separates and Mad Max overtly inspired mohawk-styled braids and the muddy black eye makeup makes her look almost demonic. They accentuate that she has firmly separated herself from the stubborn humanity of her former Sky Crew companions.
3. Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale Season 1 Episode 13
One might argue that Cheryl was always a villain on this show. One might also argue that she was never villain and simply misunderstood. However, I think we can all agree that Cheryl has never been darker than in the Season 1 Riverdale final when she burnt down her family's mansion. Cheryl has a very specific aesthetic on this show. Vaguely preppy, very sexy, and almost always garbed in red. At this moment, however, in her modest white church dress, she looks part avenging angel and part angry spirit. This is, of course, entirely purposeful on the part of the showrunners. At this moment, Cheryl isn't supposed to look like a bitchy high school girl. She's supposed to look like a monster. Even if the said monster is entirely in the right with her anger.
4. Rei, Altered Carbon
There is a surprising amount of fashion on the show Altered Carbon, considering it is set in a Dystopian Society. The fashion serves to show the stark divide between the classes in this morally compromised universe. We see the character of Red dressed mostly in rags and ragged military fatigues, highlighting her place as cannon fodder within the class hierarchy. In the finale episode when she is shown to have thrown in her lot with a gang of money-minded assassins we see her in a metallic colored flowing gown with a plunging neckline. Though she is still completely deadly, she is clearly no longer afraid and supremely self-confident in her own survival, much more so than she is shown to be in Takeshi's flashbacks.
5. Rikki Carter, Dear White People
Rikki Carter isn't shown in detail until the final of Season 2 on Dear White People. And even then she is never clearly shown only by herself. She is almost always displayed next to the main protagonist Sam White. And this is on purpose. As Rikki Carter mainly exists on this show as a dark shadow to Sam's light. Sam White on this show is a consistent force for radical change within the racial politics of her Upper-Class Ivy League school as well as the world beyond.
Rikki Carter is powerful Right Wing voice, a self-made tool which allows the 1% to virtually ignore the increasingly severe racial violence happening in the country. Sam White is almost always shown clothed in quirky accessories and vibrant patterns, with hair big enough to match her iron personality. Rikki Carter when we see her in the finale is bland in comparison. Hair flattened into submission, with a crisply ironed ivory blouse and sensible skirt. The metaphor is obvious. Rikki has been lowered into submission for ages. Sam won't allow herself to be.
6. Will Graham, Hannibal Season 3 Episode 2
Season 1 sees Will Graham mostly in lumberjack plaid and messy hair. He's meant to be presented as a man who prefers simplicity above all else despite his dark and complicated line of work. In Season 3 after supposedly being brought over into Hannibal's darkness, his dress begins to reflect that of his nemesis. More button downs and blazers and shorter haircut. Male characters don't often get the same wardrobe treatment as female characters, but even their clothing must make logical sense for where there character is at in his arch.
Some people say it's all about the journey, but what's a journey without a destination in mind?
Different TV shows all feature their own unique relationships but usually tend to follow similar patterns and narrative structures. Some 'ships may be together right off the bat, while others take years of agonizing buildup before we finally get to see them set sail.
The couples that end up together during a show's series' finale earn the term "endgame," indicating that they're the final relationship for both characters involved. To put it in simpler terms, if you're lucky enough to love an endgame ship it usually means your favorite couple is going to be together forever.
Although there are still tons of shows currently airing with ships we're rooting for, here are 13 couples we love that ended up together in their show's series finale.
1. Jim and Pam - The Office
Jim and Pam were just one of those couples that you couldn't help but love. Their friendship was one of the many highlights of The Office and their love story was so much deeper than what you would expect from a comedy show about a paper company. Seeing them go from co-workers with a crush to an eventual married couple with a family was one of the purest things we ever got to experience on our televisions.
2. Kurt and Blaine - Glee
Kurt and Blaine's relationship will easily make anyone believe in love. Kurt spent the first season of Glee struggling and feeling alone, but Blaine helped give him the courage to be proud of who he is. Although the two have had their fair share of ups and downs, their love for each other could never be diminished and they end the series married with Rachel as their surrogate.
3. Stiles and Lydia - Teen Wolf
No one knows true patience unless they shipped Stydia. Ever since the pilot episode of Teen Wolf aired, the show had been building towards an eventual romance between the pairing. After years of friendship, the two finally confessed their love for each other on the show's final season and were still happily together after the time jump in the series finale. Even though the wait was agonizing, we wouldn't change a single thing about their story. Except more Stiles in 6B.
4. Damon and Elena - The Vampire Diaries
Damon was drawn to Elena from the very start of The Vampire Diaries. Since he started off the show as a villain, it took quite a few seasons for Elena to see him as someone she could be with. After Stefan leaves town, Damon and Elena grow closer during their search for him. Their relationship is made official in Season 4 and although Nina Dobrev left the show, Elena returned in the series finale to reunite with Damon once and for all.
5. Nick and Jess - New Girl
The relationship between Nick and Jess was always a big part of New Girl. Although their status changed throughout the series, it was obvious that they had a deep love for one another. Whether they were best friends or more, Nick and Jess always seemed to glow in each other's presence. Despite not going exactly as planned, Nick's proposal to Jess was absolutely adorable and their beautiful ending was well deserved.
6. Emily and Alison - Pretty Little Liars
Ever since the beginning of the show, Emily was in love with Alison. Aware of Emily's love for her, Alison always made Emily believe her feelings were one-sided. After Alison's resurrection from the dead, she confessed to Emily that their kisses weren't just for practice. Although it took a lot of time and redemption on Alison's part, her proposal to Emily at the end of the series is proof that love truly does conquer all.
Sometimes we just need to take a break from all the drama and have a good laugh. In this world, who doesn't? Thankfully, there are some characters that use their humor and whit to add a little light-heartedness to seemingly bleak situations.
They manage to give both us and their fellow characters a reprieve from everything going on, and their unique personalities bring something special to their respective series.
As a token of our appreciation, here are 17 TV characters from dramatic or supernatural shows that make us LOL.
1. Felicity Smoak - Arrow
Felicity's personality and commentary have always brought something special to Arrow. Her quirkiness and ability to make light of even the darkest situations make us want to do the same.
2. Cisco Ramon - The Flash
Everyone on The Flash has their moments, but Cisco is as funny as it gets. Like he said himself, the whole "naming the bad guys thing," is definitely Cisco's jam.
3. Winn Schott - Supergirl
Every superhero needs an awesome sidekick, but Winn is so much more than that. His incredible intelligence and desire to help others makes him a hero in his own right, and his hilarious commentary constantly cracks us up.
4. Blair Waldorf - Gossip Girl
Blair was so much more than just a privileged princess living on the Upper East Side. Her determination and her cleverness made her one of the strongest women on the network. Her interactions with others (Dan especially), as well as some of her jovial ideas, made it impossible not to smile.
5. Hanna Marin - Pretty Little Liars
The award for best one-liners goes to Hanna Marin. She is all around hysterical and her sassy quotes are 100% gif worthy. You know what they say, "If the feather fits."
6. Damon Salvatore - The Vampire Diaries
While The Vampire Diaries was usually composed mostly of love triangles and supernatural drama, Damon was known for his humorous presence in the show. He's even managed to compile a significant amount of fan videos based on his funny quips.
The idea of Starcrossed Lovers in entertainment has been around for a long time. The term was actually coined by Shakespeare to describe the most tragic pairing in entertainment history, Romeo and Juliet.
What Starcrossed Lovers actually means is a romantic pairing whose love is doomed to fail. Thankfully, on most television shows, this isn't always the case. Otherwise, I would never be able to emotionally handle watching half of my favorite shows.
For the most part, Starcrossed Lovers these days are usually just two people who are clearly perfect for each other but due to an array of frustrating (and entertaining) circumstances just can't seem to get it together enough to get together.
So, here are 17 Starcrossed Lovers on TV and have made us swoon and sob!
1. Clarke and Bellamy - The 100
Clarke and Bellamy have had instant chemistry since day one. However, with the Grounders War, Mount Weather, and of course the nuclear radiation issue of the last season, these two just haven't had the opportunity to sit down and talk about their obvious feelings.
2. Buffy and Angel- Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Obviously any time, anyone tries to start a romance with a vampire it's not going to work because they're going to live forever and you probably won't. But in the meantime, watching Buffy meet her match in Angel was every 90's kid's favorite addiction.
3. Ryan and Marissa - The OC
Everyone in the early 2000s was either a Summer and Seth or a Ryan and Marissa. The difference is that while Summer and Seth had a mostly stable relationship post Season 3, Ryan and Marissa just couldn't seem to get over their respective demons enough to make it work. It's tough being 17 in The OC.
4. Cole and Pheobe - Charmed
Sadly, this is one relationship that really was doomed from the start. Frustrating too because Cole actually came back for the final only to set Pheobe up with a totally different character??? How does that even make sense? Sorry, I'm still pretty mad about this one.
5. Tyrone and Tandy - Cloak and Dagger
Ok so these two aren't a couple yet but you would have to be willfully blind to ignore the chemistry going on between these two. Shame that they have these wacky new superpowers to deal with first. Maybe once they have that under control they may have time to do something normal like go to the movies or eat pizza together.
6. Angela and Eliot - Mr Robot
It's incredible that these two didn't even share their first kiss until the second season but then the world of Mr. Robot is almost as screwed us as our actual world so we will give these two a pass. In the end, it was worth waiting for, the childhood friends are equally smart and tormented, but will their demons get the best of them in the end?
Not every television relationship starts off on the right footing. Sometimes it takes seasons for two people on opposite sides to finally put aside their differences and come together.
Although it can be frustrating sometimes, some of the best relationships start off antagonistic and slowly develop a connection based on understanding and mutual respect.
Like they say, love is stronger than hate.
Whether these relationships turned platonic or romantic, here are 17 duos that started off as enemies before they became friends.
1. Oliver and Slade - Arrow
Oliver and Slade definitely have a complicated history. They didn't start off as the best of friends but slowly came to depend on each other greatly on Lian Yu. After Slade feels Oliver is responsible for the death of the girl he loved, he comes after him years later. Despite their past, Oliver and Slade are reunited once more down the line and are able to overcome their differences and help each other out.
2. Amberle and Eretria - The Shannara Chronicles
Their relationship started with thievery and threats which is what made Princess Rover's development so amazing. They went from trying to kill each other to doing anything to save each other. It was also implied that Eretria may have had feelings for Amberle, but considering the ending of Season 1 it never got to be explored.
3. Bellamy and Clarke - The 100
Like Clarke wasn't afraid to admit, she and Bellamy did not like each other when they first met. They were constantly clashing over leadership decisions and arguing over what was best for Bellamy's sister and the rest of their people. It took some time, a couple heart to hearts, and quite a few life or death situations, but Bellamy and Clarke ended up becoming best friends. Their relationship is at the front and center of the show and it's very possible that their love for each other may finally lead to something more than friendship in Season 5.
4. Alex and Meredith - Grey's Anatomy
Meredith and Alex weren't exactly enemies but they also weren't on good terms. Alex was always trying to distance himself from those around him and made his fair share of poor decisions. As time went on, Meredith and Alex grew closer and came to depend on each other as fellow doctors. As more people came in and out of their lives, Meredith and Alex offered each other stability and are currently best friends.
5. Clary and Alec - Shadowhunters
While Clary never had any ill feelings towards Alec, it was safe to say that Alec was not her biggest fan. Alec was still carrying feelings for Jace and he wasn't a fan of Clary's relationship with him or her presence in the Insitute. It did take a season or so, but Clary and Alec and have managed to set aside their predispositions and become friends.
6. Seth and Kate - From Dusk till Dawn
Kate may have started out as Seth's captive along with the rest of her family, but Seth constantly protected her from harm. At the end of the first season, Kate chooses to go along with Seth and they drive off into the sunset together to become partners in crime. It seemed likely that Seth had deeper feelings for Kate, but unfortunately, the show ended before we could see where their relationship was headed.
There are some characters on television that just remain pure and wholesome no matter what the world throws at them. Despite the drama going on around them, they manage to stay true to themselves and their morals.
These characters always put others before themselves and try their best to do the right thing even when it's not easy. Honestly, they're just the type of people you want to wrap in a blanket and protect from harm.
Here are 27 wholesome characters with those good-natured characteristics who we think deserve the world.
1. Barry Allen - The Flash
Barry Allen may be the fastest man alive, but he's also the cutest. His quirky and kind traits make him one hell of a superhero as he actually cares about every single person that he's saving. Barry doesn't just see heroes and villains -- he sees people and always looks for the best in them.
2. Jake Peralta - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Some may say he's a little over the top at times, but that's just one of the things that make Jake great. He is absolutely adorable and Jake wouldn't be who he is without his pure heart and desire to the right thing.
3. Kira Yukimura - Teen Wolf
Kira is the most polite badass I have ever seen. She can kill you with kindness and then actually kill you if you threaten her friends. She was the sweetest and one of the most endearing characters on Teen Wolf, and she deserved a lot better than being left in the desert with the Skinwalkers only to never be seen or heard from again.
4. Prince Charming - Once Upon a Time
Prince Charming, otherwise known as David Nolan in Storybrooke, is probably one of the few portrayals of princes that's actually deserving of the name. Charming always wanted what was best for his family and would sacrifice himself at a moment's notice if it meant keeping others safe.
5. Clay Jensen - 13 Reasons Why
Clay deserves so much better than the hand he's been dealt. The death of Hannah who he loved, will haunt him forever and it seems he's always going to feel like he's partially to blame. He would do anything to get justice for her and even puts his life on the line to stop others from making life-changing mistakes. He's just an all-around kind soul who's full of love and compassion.
6. Janet - The Good Place
Janet may be a computer who's programmed to be good, but that doesn't change the fact that she is indeed wholesome and pure. It's hard not to want happiness for someone so incredibly warm-hearted.
In its simplest terms, feminism is about equality when it comes to gender. A deeper examination of the term also places a specific look into the way that minority groups are uplifted and given the same chance as white women and men.
Looking at the way TV explores the topic, many examples of a male character that could fit the term feminist is based on the relationships they share with those around them, specifically women, and the way they confront their privilege if they are a white male.
Usually, these characters don't actually reference that they are feminists, but their view of equality allows for conversation to go there regardless.
Here is a slideshow of male TV characters that are probably feminists, many of whom are men of color that obviously fit that example, and some white men as well that are aware of the privilege that they hold and that learn how to not let that dictate the way they view equality.
1. Magnus Bane - Shadowhunters
Magnus Bane is many things, and supporting equality just happens to be one of them. This is an inspiring character that continues to represent nothing but love and appreciation, which means there is no doubt in anyone's mind that this includes feminism as well.
2. Bellamy Blake - The 100
Bellamy's view of all the women in his life has been nothing but supportive and respectful. He is honestly in awe of just about all the women in his life, which is kind of the perfect way to frame a male lead, one that isn't always afforded to us. The 100, in general, does well with placing women in places of power without any question of gender, and Bellamy is the main example of the trust that continues to take place from that. He is also one of a few men that just happens to be in a well-developed partnership with a woman, allowing for a real sense of equality to shine through.
3. Garrett McNeill - Superstore
Garrett on all fronts is just a great character, so even though Jonah is the one that rightfully so announced that he was a feminist, Garrett deserves the shout out too. Who can forget the way he easily described how to handle a period to Jonah? It is an effortless conclusion to come to when a character seamlessly joins a conversation like that.
4. Ravi Chakrabarti - iZombie
Ravi is a guy that shouldn't even be questioned when it comes to assuming he is a feminist. He doesn't have to say it for us to see it, especially in his relationship with Liv. But even outside of that, Ravi is obviously supporting and helping contribute to equality as opposed to anything else.
5. Alex Crawford - The Bold Type
Alex works for a magazine that aims to promote feminism on a daily basis, so it should come as an absolute surprise to no one that this is a character that fits that label as well. Alex is a presence in Kat, Sutton, and Jane's lives as a voice that is on their side but that also isn't afraid to push them when they aren't aware that they need that themselves. Now if only we got even more of Alex because he is truly a presence to adore on The Bold Type.
6. Marcus Kane - The 100
Marcus has come a long way, which is why it is safe to say that he is now slipping very easily into this list. There were earlier moments where that couldn't always ring true, but if there is anything that Kane admires now it is powerful women that he supports without question. His treatment of the women around him has quickly become supportive, with any women in a position of power immediately having to prepare herself for Kane wanting to befriend her.
Some characters just end up clicking in a hilarious way. Their scenes make for the most comedic moments on their respective series and it's not always just because of the written script. Actors are able to create both funny and iconic moments just by playing off of their dynamics with others.
As long as they have the right on-screen chemistry, you can find a hilarious pairing in almost any show no matter the genre.
Here are 21 duos who we think have the right personalities to co-star in their own sitcoms.
1. Bronn and Tyrion - Game of Thrones
Despite not interacting for a couple seasons, when they are together Bronn and Tyrion's witty humor always makes for a fun time. They manage to add comic relief to an otherwise heavy show.
2. Damon and Bonnie - The Vampire Diaries
Bamon was the most hilarious thing to ever happen to The Vampire Diaries. As we saw in Season 6, all we have to do is stick them in a house alone together and we'll be laughing our asses off.
3. Wynonna and Nicole - Wynonna Earp
Nicole's cuteness and Wynonna's bluntness makes for the perfect good cop bad cop scenario. Can we please have a show about these two being partners (in crime)?
4. Steve and Danny - Hawaii Five-0
Steve and Danny's bromance is one of the highlights of Hawaii Five-0. And let's be real, at some points it felt like they were already on their own sitcom.
5. Hanna and Emily - Pretty Little Liars
Hanna's ludicrous plans throughout the series mixed with Emily's tendency to go along with them always brought about interesting situations. Not to mention that we can never get enough of their friendship. The possibilities for these two are endless.
6. Winn and James - Supergirl
Winn and James are already funny on their own but put them together and their interactions are priceless. As we've seen in the past, they make a great team and we'd love to see a comedic spinoff about their adventures fighting crime.
