Bad Mouth! – A Recap of Teen Wolf’s “Muted”

When you really think about it, our mouths are probably the second most trouble-making body parts we have.  (I’ll let you use your imagination to figure out the most trouble-making body part.)

never have sex

In a way, it was kind of fitting that this week’s installment of Teen Wolf starred a creepy mouthless dude, especially considering how all the people on the show with mouths were getting screwed over by them, left and right, throughout the hour.  (Geez, three sentences into my recap, and I’ve already made two sex metaphors.   It must just be one of those weeks .  . .)

So clean the blood off your pussy . . . cat, leave an “Out to Lunch” sign on your door for the local axe murderer, and, for heaven sakes, wipe that smirk off your face!  It’s time for another Teen Wolf recap.

[As always, a hearty Werebanger Roar to screencapper extraordinaire Andre, who enticed me to research the term Wendigo prior to writing this recap.  (And by “research,” I mean type the word into Wikipedia and skim the first two paragraphs . . .)]

Strangers in the Night (Exchanging Chompers)

Now, I know that Mouthless Morty (a.k.a. The Mute) was supposedly only stalking Sean and his Wendigo family to make a few quick bucks, by eliminating some supernatural Beacon Hills residents from “The Benefactor’s” Deadpool.

And yet, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the Guy With No Teeth chose as his first target the kid with a spare set of pearly whites in his mouth, ripe for the taking.  Do you?

waiting with teeth

But, perhaps, I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here.  When we first meet Sean, he’s just your average, mildly attractive, non-cannibalistic, high school boy, sleeping peacefully in his bed with visions of the dead bodies in his basement dancing in his head.  He awakens in the middle of the night, to find that he’s misplaced his pussy  . . .

here pussy pussy

“Pussy Come!”

So, he goes outside to look for her.

hey pussy

 

“Here, Pussy, Pussy!  Come here, Sweet Pussy!”

Silly Sean!  Why would your pussy go outside in the cold, when it has a perfectly warm spot to lay, right in your bedroom?

stiles upward looking

Having given Pussy up for dead, Sean returns to his house, which is pretty swanky . . . not necessarily, high school teacher Kira’s dad’s house swanky . . .

asian inspired house

. . . or Lydia Martin’s (whatever it is her parents do for a living) mansion swanky.  But Sean’s ma and pa are definitely raking in more dough than say Scott’s Nurse, Who Basically Runs the Entire Hospital By Herself Mom, and Stiles’ Only Officer Over the Age of 25 in the Beacon Hills PD Dad.

kind of swanky

(Thus proving that “eating your competition” is, in fact, a legitimate way to achieve the American Dream .  . .)

plague on houses

Anywhoo, Sean finds some telltale paw-sized bloody footprints near the side of his bed, which, in and of itself, shouldn’t be all that alarming to a cannibal, who happens to own a cat.  And Sean isn’t alarmed.  In fact, when he first finds the naughty pussy (named Willow, no less.  As in Pussy Willow?  Seriously!) under his bed, he’s super relieved! That is, until he takes a closer look . . .

“Anyone got a tampon?”

(Truth be told, nothing freaks out an Alpha Male more than a bloody pussy .  . .)

 As if on cue, immediately upon finding Pussy Willow lying in a pool of blood not her own, Sean hears the horrifying sounds of his family being bludgeoned to death next door.  It’s legitimately terrifying.   Davis has done a good job building suspense in these first few moments of the episode, and is now about to give his Werebangers the payoff we’ve both wanted and feared since the hour began.

And by payoff, I mean a really nice shot of Sean flexing his muscles shirtless . . .

And also the whole creepy axe murderer stalking Sean through his home, and casually tossing tomahawks in his general direction . . .

. . . but mostly the whole Shirtless Thing.

hubba hubba

“Hello Sean.  I just killed your family.  Do you want to die like them, begging for your life.  Or, do you want to fight?” A Darth Vader-y voice bellows from a laptop that Mouthless Morty has conveniently brought along for this murderous occasion.

internet derek 2

(Morty, it must be said, is an impressively fast typist. having tapped out the entire phrase above in under ten seconds.  If this whole Hitman of Supernaturals thing doesn’t work out, he should definitely consider a successful career as a Court Reporter. Then again, maybe he pre-types his threats before he heads off on his killing sprees . . .)

This is pretty much your textbook case of fight-or-flight response.  Sean, who is played brilliantly by Glenn McCuen, is clearly devastated by the loss of his entire family, but he’s also intensely pissed off.  He hates Mouthless Morty for ruining his life, and would like nothing more than to make him suffer an excruciating death.  But Sean is no dummy (poor pussy-finding skills aside).  As he stands in his bedroom, fists clenched, ready for battle, you can almost see the wheels turning in his brain.  Should I fight?  Can I take this guy out?

conflicted

Nope  . . .

run

Meanwhile, in another apartment for Lost Boys without parents . . .

That’s a lot of money, honey .  . .

Derek and Peter (Do these guys live together now?  Because, last I checked Derek’s loft apartment lacked even a single bed, not to mention a toilet) find themselves across the table from hired gun Braeden, with whom they are in the process of (poorly) negotiating the terms of Kate’s recapture.  Here’s how it goes down.  Derek makes an offer.  Braedan makes a counter-offer that, from the look on Peter’s face is about double what Derek offered.  Derek accepts the offer immediately, and without reservation.

Geez Derek!  Everyone knows you never accept the first offer in negotiations.  Didn’t they teach you anything in Brooding Bad Boy Beefcake School?

“Ummmm . . .”

Peter is understandably furious, recognizing that now that he is cash poor, he may actually have to get a Real Job based on a resume that boasts only the following skills:

smirky peter

*master manipulator

*the ability to return from the dead

*the ability to look younger than you actually are

*lady killer

*complete lack of conscience

*possible sociopath

*definite megalomaniac

*occasionally (and inexplicably) speaks with a British accent, despite not being British

*looks great in a V-neck

Come to think of it, this sounds like the resume of most CEOs from major Fortune 500 Corporations.  Peter will be just fine.  I don’t know why he’s so worried!

But then Derek flashes his new golden eyes at Peter, and everything changes.  It appears that, in addition to temporarily kidnapping his manhood, Kate has gone and made Derek a virgin again . . . well, a Murder Virgin, at least . . . (There’s no magical spell in all the land that is going to erase that icky Darach Sex from Derek’s history.)

Later Scott’s mom and Stiles’ dad find themselves in the morgue,  dealing with the all-too-familiar sensation of sorting through piles of freshly dead bodies.  Having determined, based on the corpse eviscerations, that the murderer of Sean’s family is actually MAN and NOT WOLF (or lizard, or fox, or were jaguar, or evil Japanese spirit), two-thirds of the adult contingent on this show surreptitiously slap one another five that they won’t be needing to further traumatize their children, by bringing them into this mess . . .

  1. East Coast Captain

    I would be lying if I didn’t say I wanted to see for once something human oriented like a good ole fashion serial killer that the Sheriff’s department had to take down but alas this is Beacon Hills where all manner of supernatural creatures lurk in both dark and light. Not the most exciting way to turn a person but hey at least Scott has made his first werewolf he’s going to make mistakes but hey what’s another werewolf?

    • Andre

      I think the real problem will be that Davis will push this Jackson 2.0 into our faces like he did with Scott’s alleged special status and high virtue.

  2. Andre

    Well the episode was better than the ones before (which again might be because it was not written by Davis), which still doesn’t mean much since the plot was still forced and the plotholes keep piling up.

    And you know what: we all should have seen that coming in season 2. Remember how it was stated that wounds caused by an Alpha need to heal normally? Well, if that is the case, why did Derek survive Peter stabbing him in season 1? The stabbing went through the ribs and pierced the lungs, at least, so why didn’t Derek die? Answer: Because they hadn’t come up with that at the time. And they keep doing that now.
    And Sean, aka the first Jackson-rip off and example of the show’s latent colorism, is a pretty good example of that. But don’t worry, we will get to that in time.

    When we first meet Sean, he’s just your average, mildly attractive, non-cannibalistic, high school boy, sleeping peacefully in his bed
    You forgot “worked out” in your list. Plus, considered that Teen Wolf has an abysmal record when it comes to colorism and stereotyping I doubt that his physique as well as coloration (pale skin, blue eyes, dirty blond hair) as well as home (rich Anglo-American home) is any coincidence in that matter. The combination of pale, blue-eyed and blond is a pervasive and common example of colorism in Western media, often signifying innocence and as in this case victimization.

    But Sean’s ma and pa are definitely raking in more dough than say Scott’s Nurse, Who Basically Runs the Entire Hospital By Herself Mom, and Stiles’ Only Officer Over the Age of 25 in the Beacon Hills PD Dad.
    This really pisses me off about this show. This constant promotion of wealthy people. They didn’t do that in season 1, but now they do it constantly.

    As if on cue, immediately upon finding Pussy Willow lying in a pool of blood not her own, Sean hears the horrifying sounds of his family being bludgeoned to death next door.
    1) How is the cat that covered in blood but also so calm? Did she bath in it or what?
    2) If mouthless guy left so much blood on the cat, how on earth did he manage to kill so many people without Sean noticing it?

    Davis has done a good job building suspense in these first few moments of the episode, …
    I wholeheartedly disagree. The thing with the computer-voice was a nice idea but the rest was too damn predictable and made too little, or better looking at how obvious the manipulation was, too much sense (in terms of cheap manipulation tactics) to be suspenseful to me.

    And by payoff, I mean a really nice shot of Sean flexing his muscles shirtless
    Considered what we learned about him later, that physique made no sense.

    . . . but mostly the whole Shirtless Thing.
    And isn’t it astounding that, once again, the straight female demographic (let’s face it, everyone else is basically ignored and tossed nothing but bones) gets something to look at but you have never once seen a woman/girl grab a guy’s ass on this show but the other way around pretty often? Or do you remember any instance where it was different?

    “Hello Sean. I just killed your family. Do you want to die like them, begging for your life. Or, do you want to fight?” A Darth Vader-y voice bellows from a laptop that Mouthless Morty has conveniently brought along for this murderous occasion.
    And again: That all happened and Sean did not notice that? Even if the guy lies, how could Sean not notice that his family was getting killed? Not even the cat hissed?

    Then again, maybe he pre-types his threats before he heads off on his killing sprees
    It was probably just there to make it look cool. Another reason why this scene didn’t work for me.

    is clearly devastated by the loss of his entire family
    That is “devastated”? Based on what? He barely sweated, he seemed pretty calm, didn’t seem to be overtly scared or anything afterwards.
    Also if Mouthless guy is so fast that he can kill the other family members (4 or 5) so silently, why didn’t he just go after Sean? Oh right because the plot says so, I mean we can’t have it that the episode does not have the forced scene at the end that finally convinced me… you will see.

    from hired gun Braeden
    You know, isn’t “Braeden” a guy’s name? Or is this her last name? Like with Deaton, Boyd and Morell? Wow, four times… doesn’t look good for this show that all four black characters are mostly referred to by last name, except once when we learn Boyd’s name was Vernon but seriously who calls him like that?
    Also, that all we knew about Boyd was his last name and that he wanted to be like Scott should have made it clear that he would die sooner than any other guy among the werewolves:

    Why do they think she can find and possibly kill Kate? Sure she seems to have come back from the dead, albeit that just further highlights the incompetence of the Alpha pack, but Kate is a trained hunter and killer with superstrength and when the two idiots can just contact Braeden like that, why not someone else? Also we never got an explanation how Derek even knows the Alpha idiots.
    I mean I get it, Braeden is there to show this show is progressive and all, even if she is just the show’s third magical negro (remember “three is a pattern”), but are they so lazy/incompetent that they cannot come up with something to explain why they think she could do it? She didn’t seem to be that capable before, especially not in episode 1 when she nearly shouted in that old abandoned church so everyone could hear her. You know she really doesn’t seem to be very capable when you think about it.

    Come to think of it, this sounds like the resume of most CEOs from major Fortune 500 Corporations. Peter will be just fine. I don’t know why he’s so worried!
    Because the writers no longer criticize wealthy people and are quite frankly not smart enough to let Peter say that.
    Stuff like that makes me think more and more of that show with teenagers falling in love with serial killers.

    It appears that, in addition to temporarily kidnapping his manhood, Kate has gone and made Derek a virgin again . . . well, a Murder Virgin, at least . . .
    How? Why? This makes no sense with the whole eyes thing. And naturally Derek is too stupid to try and find anything out.

    This is real. If you are over the age of 18, and you are reading this, you are officially not allowed to lust over this . . .
    Well good for me that I don’t seem to have any pedophilic tendencies, do not consider the guy attractive in the least and honestly got serious Jackson vibe from him the first moment he was on screen. And not just like he is a physical Jackson rip-off like all male members of the Alpha pack or pretty much any other new male coming to town since the start of season 3, no, this guy here seemed like a new version of Jackson immediately.

    Oh, and I almost forgot, blah, blah, blah, this kid is very good at lacrosse, and may put Scott’s position as captain in jeopardy, blah . . .
    Like I said: He is Jackson revisited. And trust me the evidence will be flowing in like mad in this comment.

    REMINDER, YOU CANNOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FIND HIM ATTRACTIVE . . .
    Again, I don’t find him attractive at all. I find him attractive:

    And him (can you blame me?):

    But this Jackson 2.0… I want this to happen to him:

    I am just so done with these Jackson look a likes and rip-offs. What is this show’s deal with them? Even the guy shooting balls at the Jackson 2.0 was blue eyed, muscular and blond. And such and similar types are dime a dozen in this show.
    But hey nothing says “there is no racism” than having pale Anglo-looking people as the standard of desirability in a show.

    And you know what I don’t get? That viewers seem to want more and more of the same crap over and over. For me that is torture, but they seem to be like Homer Simpson in Donut Hell:

    Think about what this tells you about the show and the viewers. Nothing positive in my eyes, that they want the same over and over and don’t care for actual diversity. But claim it to be awesome nonetheless.

    Recognize This Guy?
    No because I didn’t watch these episodes of that awful sexist and racist show.

    That’s right, Werebangers, Beacon Hills newest Dr. McDreamy is none other than Connor The Hunter from TVD,
    Great, another actor that is the same, as if this show wasn’t similar enough already to TVD.

    Later Scott’s mom and Stiles’ dad find themselves in the morgue, dealing with the all-too-familiar sensation of sorting through piles of freshly dead bodies.
    And yet no new agents come into town. Or new hunters or anything… remember back in season 1 and 2 when such things still happened and this was not turning into a TVD rip-off?

    two-thirds of the adult contingent on this show surreptitiously slap one another five that they won’t be needing to further traumatize their children, by bringing them into this mess . . .
    And why would they ever need to, I ask myself. When I saw this I was immediately thinking:
    Why don’t these two idiots just ask Deaton in private? They know he is experienced, they don’t need to include their kids right away.
    Or, you know, that allegedly nearly 900 year old samurai knockoff that is Noshiko. They know about her, at least we can assume that they do. I think Stiles told his dad.
    But nope the “teenagers” need to be in the spotlight no matter what and the writers are too stupid to think any different.
    I think I said it before but I will say it again:
    This pattern of writing does not help the show, it only hinders it. This episode showed that very well, in many ways. You will see what I mean.

    What’s the matter Scooby Gang, you’ve never met a Real Teenage Boy who is actually naturally good at sports?
    You’ve got to admit it’s really ridiculous how they portrayed it here.

    Well, than you have reason to fear, because this kid is super attractive (objectively speaking!), super talented, and (gasp) super ready to take your spots as the new lacrosse captain, not to mention, the new protagonist of this show, after you both head off to the dreaded-for-all-teen-shows C-word . . . College.
    Another piece of evidence that the guy is Jackson 2.0. In my mind, this guy is how Davis wanted Jackson to be.

    So, you have to sympathize a bit with our heroes for showing up at the table a bit unprepared . . .

    In Scott’s and Stiles’ defense, they’ve been a bit distracted, of late, with things like Family Murdering Axe Murderers . . .

    Actually in my mind it’s totally stupid. They apparently wanted comedy but they did it by sacrificing consistency.
    How can Stiles be so out of shape? The guy must have been running 24 hours in the last year. Also how can Stiles suck suddenly and be that good in season 2? How on earth can Scott’s aim suddenly be so off? After one year on the field he is that bad suddenly?
    Seriously, that was painful to watch. I had to skip parts of it. All just for stupid C-class comedy and to promote Davis’ new boy crush.

    The worst part is that the coach would be stupid enough to make the new guy team captain despite possible problems with that. After all the guy told a guy with alleged anger management issues to play a violent game. Which is the dummest thing you could do. So sadly that part of idiocy is in character.

    And . . . what the heck is going on with this guy’s neck? EWWWWWWW!
    When I saw him putting this thing in his neck I thought: The new guy IS Frankenstein isn’t he?
    If they come with him being assembled from many parts of to be somewhat artificial we can be sure he is based on Frankenstein. So far the show has not been creative since the Kanaima in season 2. And even before that their creativity was pretty limited.

    But not that devil. Stiles is done with that. Jeff Davis’ has promised that our hero will be funny again, this year.
    Answer me this question: Why do you still believe anything the guy says? He promised so many things and what of it actually did come true?
    Seriously I wonder whether so many people would like this show if they would not see it through the glasses Davis presented.
    Also with Kate being back and Jackson 2.0 being here I think Davis is out of ideas and so wants to recycle season 1.

    . . . and then, thanks to a friendly wager from Malia, it goes REALLY badly, for Liam . . .
    So the guy not only is of the same type as Jackson, instantly popular, does not live with both biological parents, is cocky about being good, but there is also some badly written reason for us to feel sorry for him. And apparently Scott and Stiles need to be painted as the bad guys in a way that is an embarrassment to storytelling. Is there any doubt that the guy is Jackson 2.0?

    Also, Stiles says Scott that it is ok to want something for yourself once in a while? When has Scott ever been selfless? This episode alone Stiles got a point about Scott’s and Kira’s behavior (when they wanted to stay in school instead of solving the crime), one of the many reasons why this true Alpha stuff for Scott is bullshit. How can anyone be so stupid and fall for, respectively write, this piece of garbage?

    Plus when you say you are good (like Jackson 2.0 did) and “not lying” it means that you think you are good, not that you really are. Something the writers of this show apparently have no idea about. You know you are bad when the writing of Desperate Housewives looks competent in comparison.
    This show is not only reminding me of TVD but also of the walking Dead:

    And I guess you know by now, I don’t like the Walking Dead either. I think it’s totally overrated.

    Gun-for-hire Braedan and Musclely Dudebro Derek share all the markings of a film noir romance . . .
    I have to take your word for it. I just see a magical negro (which is the reason why she speaks Spanish, has weapons training and can just get some files) and a character that has overstayed his welcome a long time ago and should be killed to get rid of him. Of course with this show … it’s like comic books, they only permanently kill their cannon-fodder.

    Of course if it were after me I would kill every character that came in after season 1, plus Derek, and replace them with actual characters and bring some real horror into this show.

    PS: I really hope Lydia and the deputy will not hit it off, because that would be her second Jackson rip-off.

    Then, they find the decaying bodies in the basement, and he doesn’t like what he sees . . . at all . . .
    Isn’t it astounding how Lydia’s powers go on and off when it’s convenient for the plot?

    PLUS: HOW ON EARTH WERE THEY ABLE TO COLLECT ALL THESE BODIES WITHOUT ANYONE EVER NOTICING IT?
    And how long have they been in Mystic Falls and no one realizing that? The werewolf noses never picked that up? No one ever noticed bodies/people disappearing so often? Or are these now the bodies of all the people killed over the last 4 seasons?
    Do these writers have any idea about the logistics of transporting corpses?

    Thank you, Scott, who, in the words of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character in Cruel Intentions, has been pursuing Kira with the speed of a Special Olympic Hurdler. It’s about damn time . .
    But remember, it is big love between the two. Big love that is nothing but insta-love, of a couple that does nothing together that would make them a couple and I have no idea why they are together to begin with.
    At least Scott and Kira were more tolerable than usual.

    Plus: Scott was not her first boyfriend? How exactly did she get those others if she is that shy? The writers did a pretty shitty job in portraying her as such a person.
    And what we hear here about them having planned to be only temporarily in town… THEN WHY DID THEY DRAG KIRA THERE??? Because she was important to the plan of her dumb mother? In that case she should have been trained or at least told about her powers long before. This info, as usual for this show now, makes the characters look even dumber than they already were.
    Also: As typical for the show, the alleged enmity between “foxes and wolves” respectively samurai knockoffs and demon-elves seems to be completely gone now doesn’t it?

    With the taste of Scott’s Wolf Tongue still fresh on her lips, and a surprise offer to be the only girl on the male lacrosse team in her hot little fingers, Kira finally finds the courage to tell her parents, in no uncertain terms, that she is not moving back to NYC . . .
    In other Girl Power news, Malia learns that the way to Stiles’ heart is not through his stomach . . .

    Answer me this question: Is the situation in the USA really this bad that these two stereotypes and walking plotholes and what they are doing counts as girl power?
    I have the feeling that you overdo it with the “search for something good in it” and it starts to get as worrisome as with the Vampire Diaries.
    Think about it:
    Did Kira apply to the position on the team on her own? No.
    Did a friend suggest it? No.
    Did she show any interest in lacrosse? No.
    Did she work for being able to play lacrosse? No.
    So in the end what it comes down to is that she is only there because a man granted her that position and her Mary Sue powers had kicked in.
    I guess this counts now as breaking stereotypes. Yeah because a skinny girl like that with such strength is not suspicious at all. No way would anyone ever think she is on drugs.
    I liked it back in season 1 when they took this seriously, now they just do this stuff the way Glee would. Btw. I quit that show long ago and never regretted it.

    . . . rather, it’s by establishing shared interest in color-coding Mysteries of the World . . .
    I guessed that we were supposed to think that Malia just happened to have the same colors as Stiles, albeit I also suspected that this was copied from him, which makes their “relationship” even creepier than it already was.
    But apparently when you just ignore it pedophilia and plotholes get accepted. It worked for Twilight after all:

    Or pretty much any other vampire romance story.

    Plus. If Malia has so much trouble with school how did she ever get into this school?
    And how does Malia know how anxiety reeks? Did they had some sort of crash course?

    Also. Could they please try to keep consistent with the color of the claws? They change them all the time, from nearly translucent, to dirty brown and sometimes it looks like gnarled wood. What are they trying to accomplish?

    Note: If you recall, the notes in Lydia’s notebook are a near perfect match to the ones that popped up on Mouthless Morty’s computer, when he was doing that creepy neck blood transfusion thing, earlier in the episode . . .
    How convenient isn’t it? Just like they remembered Scott’s hearing, when it’s convenient for the plot.
    Plus, shouldn’t Lydia notice this stuff by now? Seriously, it must have been weeks if not months since her powers were established. Is she that much of a plot device that she cannot figure this out and notice what she is doing?

    After a quick warning from Lydia, Scott quickly learns that adorable Sean is a two-eyed, two-rows-of-teeth, nice abs, people eater, whose already devoured a deputy, and now has his sights on Scott’s mom.
    Which not only comes out of nowhere but the fact that the guy is allegedly a Wendigo is about as fitting as the Kira and Noshiko being foxes. Wendigoes basically come to be via a human committing cannibalism possibly the greatest taboo in the cultures they occur in, you could actually call them spirits, and are one of the most dangerous and villainous beings in the cultures that have them. They are not harmless victims who suffer, they are monsters. They are a symbol of hunger and death and nothing else. This does not even fit with the casting what they had written here. It is stated, or at least strongly implied, that they have an intense and uncontrollable hunger, however this guy is clearly working out. What is this, the hunger games movies? The guy is extremely well fed, so they should at least have cast a guy that actually looks like he might be constantly hungry, someone actually skinny and not this.
    Also after Jackson (Kanaima), Malia (were-coyote) and Kate (were-jaguar) we have another Native American being played by an Anglo-looking person. You know what the show says: Three is a pattern. Then you can guess what four is.
    I would not have a problem with it if the rest of this show wasn’t so full of stereotypes and Anglo looking people.
    Would Kira and her family being played by African Americans I wouldn’t say anything. Would Scott be an actual Latino, no problem. Would Deaton and Morell at least be characters instead of magical negroes that would be good. But the show is nothing like that, at all. But they claim it to be anyway. Are people really that dumb?

    Scott arrives on the scene, just in time to prevent his mom from becoming Wendigo Chow, when dumb Liam hobbles out of his room to investigate some mysterious roaring sounds . . .
    Which leads us to the most forced and badly written scene of the entire episode. What was he doing on the roof anyway except for having a forced plot to get Jackson 2.0 bitten? Escaping? Surely not? Eating Jackson 2.0? He could have done that down below like he did before. Makes no sense within the story, at all.

    “I’ll get you little hunky, and your role as Jackson’s and Isaac’s replacement on this show too!”
    See. Jackson 2.0 since physically speaking Isaac was already a Jackson rip-off. Heck the guy is even bitten. He is Jackson. They are rehashing now. Which is again a bad idea since Davis & Co. showed time and again that they cannot handle more than 5 characters.

    One last thing:
    Do the makers think we are stupid?
    You don’t have to show us the bite-wound, we saw Scott doing it and saw the blood in his mouth. I know stereotypical Americans aren’t known for being smart, but is this stereotype that widely accepted that they think they need to treat the viewers like idiots?

      Seriously, you need to chill out.
      If you hate the show so much, why watch it?

      • Andre

        Currently to make fun off it.
        Also I do not hate the show, I point out its myriads of flaws and how it is the exact opposite of what Davis claims it to be,
        In addition I have the right to an opinion and considered how much the show perpetuates stereotypes “chill out” is the exact wrong way of looking at it.
