Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 16 Review: Triggers

Gerard, maybe don't put your top secret plan on a map that anyone can see or steal it.

On Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 16, Gerard's plan was revealed, and damn, does he dream big. It's actually not all that surprising that Gerard wants world domination.

He was never going to be happy knowing that supernatural creatures were out and about living totally normal lives not hurting anyone. Does Gerard plan to wipe them out it single-handedly, or does he have little hunter armies spread worldwide?

Concern - Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 16

While Gerard has an endgame, Scott has a plan for one battle, one.

Getting rid of Gerard's weapons was a solid plan, but it's not as if the hunters would stop fighting if they discovered their guns were gone. Scott's big plan was a stalling tactic.

I know Scott hasn't had long to devise a plan, but I was hoping for something a little more long term, especially since this move revealed that the pack never actually left Beacon Hills. The element of surprise is a big thing to give away.

Hopefully, Scott starts to develop a plan (or plans) that will help him win the war. Personally, I think he should start looking into the anuke-ite a little bit more. He's got a pack, so let's divide and conquer. If he can get rid of the thing that is causing the fear, anger, and violence, then maybe he can weaken Gerard's army.

It's not like the anuke-ite is changing Gerard's behavior all that much, but odds are a good bit of his army is only there because of the anuke-ite. Whittle down Gerard's army, and then it will be a lot easier to take down Gerard.

Plus, you know Gerard will be upset when half his men drop out. What do you think Scott's next move should be? 

You could definitely feel the tension in this hour. The stakes are high, and you actually worry for people's safety for the first time since the war started.

Once Lydia heard gunshots, you start to play the "wait who is going to die" game. I don't know who you were fearing for, but Argent was my main concern.

He isn't a main character, yet he is important enough that his death would make a bunch of people (aka me) bawl their eyes out. Yeah, I was concerned about Argent during the raid.

Fighting Back - Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 16

Any theories on who got shot at the end? There isn't a good answer, unfortunately, but I think it was Melissa. While it was a lot of blood, there's still a chance that no one will truly die, right?

FINALLY, we got some answers on Liam's anger issues.

Okay, so it's not a secret that Liam has trouble controlling his anger, but we watched him learn how to stay in control and reign it in. Since Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 11, however, Liam hasn't been able to keep his anger under wraps.

Liam: Did it work?
Mason: Yeah, Nolan is right behind me, like literally right behind me. He's driving a bright red car. He's actually terrible at this.

You would think that Scott, Liam's alpha, would be concerned about what's going on, but nope, the bond between alpha and beta isn't that strong apparently. Okay, so Scott has a gazillion things on his mind, but still, it would have been nice to have Scott notice this and reach out to Liam.

However, it is great that Theo attempted to help Liam. 

The two of them have quite a history of punching each other repeatedly, and so anytime they break from that to have something similar to a heart to heart, it's entertaining to watch. These two have come a long way, and while they are far from friends, they aren't enemies anymore.

Theo and Liam Fight

Theo helping Liam also earns Theo major points. It's nice to see Theo caring for and looking out for Liam. Slowly but surely, Theo, I'm growing to like you.

In addition to Theo and Liam's bonding, it's great to see the effects of the anuke-ite. Yeah, we know it causes fear, and we're supposed to believe it's what caused all the high school students to turn on the pack, but it's not like we really knew them before the anuke-ite was unleashed.

For all we know, the random classmates could be turning on the pack because they've finally opened their eyes to all the horrible things that happened in their town.

It would be one thing if like Mason joined forces with Monroe and Gerard because of the anuke-ite. We know Mason, and we would have been able to prove that the anuke-ite was responsible for his change of heart.

With Liam, we've witnessed the change, and during the zoo mission, we saw his hallucination. Now, it's easier to understand and, well, fear the anuke-ite. We saw the magnitude of its power.
