Episode 3 - Ice Pick
Very strong continuation of episode 1 and 2. Derek continues to recruit the lost and outcast of high school to become his new pack. Alyson starts her training to become a leader of the Hunters. Stiles is Stiles. Lydia is having hallucinations. Will she or will she not turn? What is happening to her and to Jackhole? Egads did he just lift his truck? Even if Jackhole does turn either the Hunters or Derek will kill him, I don't think he gets that. Well paced the various plot lines well integrated. Luv this show.
Episode 4 - The Abomination - 6/18/12
The casting director again did an outstanding job casting the mechanic, a overly good looking guy that does cars and can act. Luving Stiles getting this much camera time, passing out due to venom, personal Scott/Allison messenger, break in specialist and last of all saving Derek's life by holding him afloat in the swimming pool for 2 hours while avoiding the reptilian shifter. Grandpa Gerard is creepy and some of his bits are macabre fun especially when he is twisting that knife in Scott's gut while threatening Scott's mom.
Even the Lydia and Jackson bits don't seem forced but part of the plot thread. Allan Ball over at HBO's True Blood can learn some pacing and plotting by watching how the Teen Wolf writers work their magic.
Episode 5 - Venomous - 6/25/12
Luv'd the tension with the scooby gang all trying to save Lydia. MTV had a 30 minutes Teen Wolf Revelations after the show with question and answers from some of the cast. The camera occasionally focused on female members of the audience who were drooling over all the male cast. Yeow! Stiles looks amazing is longer hair. Can't believe that this super summer show is almost at the half way point in it's 12 episode season. Oh, totally luv the mean teachers and coaches in this high school.

Luv'd Stiles and Scott as the gay club. Luv'd that Stiles locked up Jackson in a police prisoner transport van. Poetic justice watching Jackson use he enhanced hearing to listen to Alyson, Scott and Stiles discuss his future.
What is with Alyson's stalker he is now after Lydia? Luv'd that she named her dog Prada and that she knows archaic Latin. This show is what True Blood and The Secret Circle should be and are not.

This show just gets better and better and the dialog is great. Best dialog is Stiles and best 2 scenes are with Jackson and a snake.
While this show does have a multitude of characters it doesn't try to push them on the viewers with ridiculous plots and every episode unlike HBO's True Blood. Maybe the TB showrunners should watch this show and learn something.
They fired Stiles father. How could they? Luv'ed how they work together such a strong positive message to how father and son should interact. Scott's mom on the other hand seems kinda remote, but that might be because of her job as a nurse and the long hours and rotating shifts she is on that we (the audience barely see her). Alyson's mom on the other hand tried to and almost did kill Scott. Question is will Allyson's mom now become a werewolf and whose pack will she belong to? Talk about an alpha bitch. She will give Derek a run for his money. All this and Jackson too, and Stiles actually practicing magic or was that imagination? The Vet and the Counselor, who are they, what is their relationship, what do they know that we don't? This show is really just getting better and better.
I freaking love this show!
