Teen Wolf season 3, episode 11 just finished airing! Come read our recap and discuss “Alpha Pact” with your fellow fans.

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 11 “Alpha Pact” began with Stiles and Derek in the elevator. Stiles is trying to wake Derek up, and just as he’s about to punch him, Derek stops him and asks where Jennifer is. “She took Scott’s mom,” Stiles says.

Game on.

As Derek goes after Cora and Isaac, Stiles has to deal with the FBI agent who clearly doesn’t like Sheriff Stilinski. That’s when they discover the name Argent written in red across the elevator doors. But is it a warning from Morrell or a threat from Jennifer?

Back in Derek’s loft, it’s clear Derek is wounded over the idea that Cora is not getting any better. And Isaac has had enough. He yells at Derek, blaming him for everything. (Which is kind of accurate…) After Isaac leaves, Peter, who is ever in the background, tells Derek that Scott is on his way to becoming an Alpha.

In the Argents’ apartment, Chris convinces Stiles and Allison that he needs their help. Isaac shows up as well, and they all prepare to go up against the Darach. It’s Stiles’ job to go find Lydia, and see if she can help them.

Meanwhile, Peter seems to be further planting the seeds. He tells Derek that he can save Cora because he’s an Alpha. But it comes at a price. From the look on Peter’s face, he doesn’t mind if Derek ends up paying that price.

While Lydia is deciding not to cover up her bruise, Chris takes Isaac and Allison to the bank vault. But he’s got something up his sleeves. He tasers Isaac and handcuffs Allison so they can’t stop him from sacrificing himself to Jennifer.

When Stiles finds Lydia, they decide that they have to figure out why Jennifer wanted to kill Lydia. But before they can do that, Stiles gets a text that Chris has been taken. He begins having a panic attack, and Lydia kisses him in order to distract him from everything that’s going on.

Once he calms down, the two of them go to Morrell’s office, but she’s not there. Knowing that she’s never late, they decide something must be wrong. Looking through Lydia’s personal file, they find out that the pictures of the tree Lydia’s been drawing are absolutely identical. And they’re all of the nemeton.

The FBI agent grabs Stiles from the hallway and tries to get him to talk about the things he knows but is obviously not sharing. Deaton comes to his rescue, while Lydia shows up at Derek’s and has an awkward confrontation with Peter. She’s there to find out where the nemeton is, but Peter tells her Talia took those memories from him and Derek.

In the forest, Morrell is running from the Alpha Pack. She’s surrounded, but throws out a circle of mountain ash, keeping the Alpha Pack at a (somewhat) safe distance. We find out that Morrell sent the mysterious girl in the first episode. It’s her job to maintain balance.

Morrell also tells the twins and Kali that Deucalion was the one that killed Ennis. Deucalion throws his walking stick at her, knocking her from the circle of mountain ash. Scott stops the others from attacking Morrell, and she tells him that the parents are at the nemeton.

Back down in the root cellar, we learn that Melissa told the Sheriff everything. But Chris said the Sheriff already knew, and this is when we get the heartbreaking scene from Papa Stilinski about his wife, Claudia.

He was at the scene of a car crash where a young woman was dying. The woman gripped his hand so hard it almost broke and told him to go to his wife if he wanted to be with her when she died. Not believing, Stiles’ father didn’t go, and Stiles was left alone as his mother died in front of him.

In the forest, Deaton tells Stiles and Scott that the two of them and Allison have to be surrogate sacrifices for their parents. However, it’ll give power to the nemeton, which will be a beacon to all sorts of supernatural beings. There will also be a darkness around their hearts for the rest of their lives.

In order for it to work, someone important to them has to hold them down. For Stiles, that person is Lydia. For Scott, it’s Deaton, and for Allison, it’s Isaac. Scott’s face when he learns this about Allison is nothing short of heartbreaking.

Then Stiles drops a bomb. It turns out that Scott’s father is in town, and it’s none other than the FBI agent!

In the loft, Derek saves Cora by giving up his Alpha powers. Then we see our three heroes pushed under the ice water.

‘Teen Wolf’ season 3, episode 11 ‘Alpha Pact’ quotes

Stiles: “If that’s not enough of a kick to the balls, Scott went with Deucalion.”
Isaac: “Why’d you do this to us, Derek?”
Chris: “Retired, yes. Defenseless, no.”
Lydia: “Someone tried to strangle me, and I survived. I don’t need to hide that.”
Jennifer: “Now this is a sacrifice.”
Allison: “They’re all going to die, aren’t they?”
Danielle: “Okay, you can have my session. You got bigger issues.”
Deucalion: “I’ll kill any living thing that gets in my way.”
Morrell: “If Derek joins the pack, it paves the way for Scott.”
Deaton: “You’d be surprised at what you’ve yet to see.”

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 12 “Lunar Ellipse” will air next week, Monday, August 19 at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.

Chris Pratt is currently on a press tour for Passengers. Jennifer Lawrence may or may not be there too.

Passengers, the new sci-fi epic starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, comes out later this month. The promo tour has kicked off in Europe, with the two stars on hand to answer all our questions.

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

There’s some real gold in there, but the best part is when he realizes that fans really want to see some pictures of Jennifer Lawrence — who doesn’t have her own social media accounts — and proceeds to very decidedly not include her!

Update: He did it again.


See some of the hilarious posts from Chris Pratt below:

Not going to lie — we’re almost as excited for the press interview videos as we are for the movie itself!

Gilmore Girls‘ final four words left Rory’s story on quite the cliffhanger. Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino breaks down what it all means.

After years of waiting, the Gilmore Girls revival gave fans the highly anticipated final four words. They delivered a shocking revelation for Rory, while bringing the series full-circle. Fans (and some writers) were left confused and angry, while some felt oddly satisfied.

But what exactly did Amy Sherman-Palladino have in mind for those four words all those years ago? And what do they mean now for the future of the show as it stands?

Could ‘Gilmore Girls’ feature an abortion?

Gilmore Girls final four words

Never say never. That is the motto of Amy Sherman-Palladino after she went from saying “no” to a Gilmore Girls movie years ago to witnessing a revival come to life. The creator mentions to Buzzfeed that Rory is at a crossroads. “I think that somebody as smart as Rory is going to take a step back and look at all the angles, and then make her decision, because it’s too important a job to make the wrong decision when it comes to kids,” Sherman-Palladino comments.

Rory’s original story arc saw her entering this pregnancy at 22. Fresh out of college, the world was at her feet.

But, even at 32, Rory is just as unstable as ever. This is partially due to the fact that Amy Sherman-Palladino had to get her character back to the state of life she originally pictured Rory hitting.

A Year in the Life highlights how much growing up Rory still needs to do. She is no spring chicken who can rely on one good piece of writing to get her through the door. Rory always pushed the olive branch life extended to her until this point. Finally, it gave out and snapped back. The final four words sent her tumbling into reality.

Sherman-Palladino acknowledges that Rory must consider who she is and how that will affect the well-being of her child. Even though 32 is certainly not as young as 22, Palladino notes, “32 is frickin’ young, man.”

Lane’s pregnancy gave away a piece of the story that Sherman-Palladino hoped would belong to Rory. However, it did not ruin her master plan by any means. Speaking to TV Line, the creator adds, “By the way, Rory doesn’t have to keep the baby. There are choices here that she can make. It’s just the left turn. It’s that curveball that life throws you. I will say, weirdly, that I like it much more now.”

Not many series take the leap into tackling abortion. However, the few that do, namely Jane the Virgin‘s Xo story arc, approach it from a place of care and consequence. While religion plays a large role in Jane, the well-being of the mother, quality of life for the child, and emotional ramifications of the decision are universal circumstances.

Gilmore Girls viewers may not ever see the decision Rory makes in regards to her future.

It’s less about the boy and more about the mom

Team Logan, Team Jess, Team Dean, Team Paul (if you exist) can all put down their fighting arms. Sorry, but the next step for Rory in this moment is not obsession about a boy, but an examination of her options.

Sherman-Palladino goes on to say to TV Line, “Her discussion with Lorelai is going to be about, ‘What do I do? Where do I go from here?’ It’s not going to be about, ‘I can’t believe it’s this boy that wound up [being the father].'”

There are no cliffhangers

Gilmore Girls emily lorelai

Wait… what? You read that correctly. Amy Sherman-Palladino believes that the series left questions, sure, but it is closed for now. The final four words were meant to be — say it with me now — the final four words.

Finally, Emily finds some happiness in her darkest days spearing imaginary whales. Meanwhile, Lorelai lingers in her post-marital bliss. But Rory’s story does not close a chapter at all. Instead, a new chapter of her story at the same age as we found Lorelai all those years ago.

The cyclical nature of Gilmore Girls is a comfort to some, but not all. How do you feel?

Tris and Four’s story isn’t over just yet. A Divergent epilogue is on the way from series author Veronica Roth.

The Divergent epilogue is titled We Can Be Mended and will be released in January 2017. It’s “a short story that gives a glimpse into Four’s life five years after the conclusion of the Divergent series,” according to Veronica’s website.

It won’t be too easy to get, at least initially. We Can Be Mended will be sent as a printed book to those who pre-order Roth’s upcoming book Carve the Mark, which is set to be released on January 17.

Tris and Four’s story isn’t over just yet. A Divergent epilogue is on the way from series author Veronica Roth.

The Divergent epilogue is titled We Can Be Mended and will be released in January 2017. It’s “a short story that gives a glimpse into Four’s life five years after the conclusion of the Divergent series,” according to Veronica’s website.

To get the Divergent epilogue you must upload a copy of your Carve the Mark receipt on this website. The epilogue will be sent 4-6 weeks after Carve the Mark’s publication.

Here’s the cover (notice the Ferris wheel?):

‘Divergent’ epilogue plot

“A little while ago, my editor asked me if I had anything special written because she wanted to offer something to people who pre-ordered Carve the Mark since they’re usually the same people who supported the Divergent books so much,” said Roth on Tumblr. “I told her that I did have something written.”

“I’ve always said that the Divergent series felt complete to me, but a little while ago, I realized there was still some of the story I had left untold. So I wrote something just for myself about what Tobias had been up to in the years after Allegiant.”

Allegiant was published in 2013, and a collection of short stories starring Four was published the following summer. This’ll be the fifth short story Roth has published from the world of Divergent.

It’ll be interesting to see what’s going on in Four’s world so long after losing Tris. Will everything be okay? HAS HE FOUND A NEW GIRL? We could all use a little hope right now!

Maybe Lionsgate will use the new information to help adapt their fourth and final Divergent movie, which is titled Ascendant and may or may not be filmed for a television release.

Carve the Mark is the first in a new series. The book’s trailer was unveiled earlier this week.
