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.

Teen Wolf Season 3 Derek Alpha

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.

What did you think of the ending to ‘Teen Wolf’ season 3, episode 11 ‘Alpha Pact’?

Sherlock finally made it to Hall H at Comic-Con and the creative team brought a few surprises. Steven Moffatt, Sue Vertue, Mark Gatiss, Amanda Abbington, and Benedict Cumberbatch were on hand to the thrill of fans.

Benedict Cumberbatch and crew definitely know how to work a crowd. Here are the top highlights of the panel that played to a crowd of thousands.

1. Season 4

They are currently two weeks from finishing Sherlock season 4. Cumberbatch said that “a lot comes home to roost this season… it’s ballsy.”

They have 26 pages to film this Tuesday. Cumberbatch states that the monologues are very challenging and take a lot of work.

As for actors’ favorite lines this season:

Gatiss: “Sherlock.”

Abington: Not a line but a beckoning gesture.

Cumberbatch: Can’t say.

Key names for next season (change from doing key words):

  • Moffat: Smith
  • Gatiss: Thatcher
  • Vertue: Sherinford

2. Keeping the show fresh

By not making as many episodes, the creators feel they actually keep the quality. They joked that under normal standards they’ve actually made about half a season of a standard TV show, or 13 episodes.

There are no plans for any other Victorian Era shows. Moffat feels that it would be less interesting if the mind palace returned there.

3. Learning curves and drugs

Gatiss stated that with 90-minute episodes you “really have to put [Sherlock and Watson] through the ringer.” Moffat added that because of this, Watson has to evolve. Watson can’t keep being amazed by Sherlock. As for Sherlock, “he can’t be the weird scary amoral man we met in the first episode… geniuses learn… he has to learn.”

Sherlock’s drug addiction comes back when he is not working. It’s hinted that the addiction will be a bigger issue this season than in the past.

4. The coat and the hair

There is apparently a big debate every year over changing the iconic coat. Sue Vertue wants to change it, and Steven Moffat wants to keep it. Benedict Cumberbatch dove into the debate stating, “I’m quite hung up on the coat…. but sometimes it has to come off.” The audience reaction was predictable.

Cumberbatch joked that he loved playing Sherlock in the Victorian era because of the slicked back hair. In the modern era it takes forever for his hair to get done. On a serious note, he loved the more straight-laced, clipped version of Sherlock.

5. First ‘Sherlock’ season 4 trailer

The teaser trailer featured this phrase over and over: “Something’s coming. It may be Moriarity, maybe not.” Literally every character we know and love looks like they are scared, angry, or worried on an epic scale.

One of the best moments is Mrs. Hudson saying with supreme venom to Mycroft, “Get out of my house you reptile.” Watch below:

6. Improv and family

There is actually, according to Cumberbatch, very little improvisation on set. It’s about how to do what’s there, and not messing with the script. He firmly believes that what is there is what is needed for the show.

Cumberbatch genuinely loves having his mom and dad play his TV mom and dad. Every now and then he can see his mother struggle to call him “Sherlock” and not “Ben.”

7. Mary in the know

Abbington didn’t know she was an assassin until well into the last season. When she found out, she told partner Martin Freeman, “My God, [the fans] are going to hate me.” Despite this, she loves the flawed characters of the series.

8. When will the series return?

No date was given for either the BBC release date or the PBS release date. We only know that it will premiere in 2017.

9. The dog photo

According to Cumberbatch the dog (depicted above) was a nightmare. “The dog wouldn’t fucking move,” he said. The companion was supposed to drag Sherlock all over London, but the dog didn’t like people, concrete, crowds… really anything about an urban setting.

Moffat and Gatiss resorted to writing a new scene on the spot to account for the lack of the dog’s interest in roaming. According to Gatiss all it did was drool on the concrete.

10. Future seasons?

Touching on the future of the series, Moffat stated, “Why is everybody assuming they survive season 4?” Gatiss joked, “We’re skipping season 5 and doing season 6.”

Moffat clarified that — contrary to recent reports — he never said that this season would be the last one (He’s right: All he said was the schedules of Cumberbatch and Freeman are only getting more difficult to work with). Gatiss added that they want to do more seasons, and they hope that they are able to.

Sherlock will be back in 2017. What do you think of the first season 4 trailer?

Marvel presented at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday evening and offered new looks at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and more.

“We only want to come to Hall H when we have a lot to show you,” teased Marvel’s Kevin Feige at the start of the panel. Indeed, they had a ton to offer — including news of a new Marvel theme park attraction!

Everything we’ve learned at Marvel’s SDCC panel

  1. Marvel kicked off their panel with a new logo and updated fanfare by composer Michael Giacchino.

  2. Black Panther had some casting news to share: Lupita N’yongo will be playing one of the guards at Wakanda named Nakia. Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan will be playing Erik Killmonger. We also received brand new casting news: Danai Gurira has joined the movie — She’ll play Okoye, head of Dora Milaje! Finally, a new logo for the film was revealed:

  3. Thor: Ragnarok unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at the new film which included a look at Cate Blanchett as Hela. They also showed a documentary-style clip (think The Office) explaining where Hulk and Thor were during the events of Captain America: Civil War! In it, Thor had a tiny bed for Mjolnir and a crime board that tried to connect the Infinity Stones and discover their purpose. There is also mugshot of Loki. Like Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok had a new logo to show off with a retro looking subtitle:

    thor-ragnorak-new-logo-sdcc-2016

  4. Doctor Strange’s portion of the panel kicked off with a smoke and laser show to introduce Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Tilda Swinton was also at the panel and spoke about the Ancient One. “The truth is, anyone can be The Ancient One,” she said. A clip from Doctor Strange was also showed in which Steven Strange meets Tilda’s character (It won’t be online).

  5. Thankfully, a brand new and wholly epic Doctor Strange trailer was released. Watch below:

    A new poster was also unveiled:

    doctor-strange-sdcc-poster

  6. Next up was Spider-Man: Homecoming. Director Jon Watts described the film as a high school movie about a 15-year-old Peter Parker who’s in the 10th grade. A new clip was unveiled and had a strong John Hughes vibe — Peter Parker is just your average high schooler trying to get through the day. There was also this great moment:

  7. Next up: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which kicks off a few months after the first movie. The entire cast was there to introduce a new scene in which a very adorable Baby Groot helps Yondu and Rocket break out of prison. Baby Groot even has a little outfit! Adorably, the Ravengers — who captured Yondu and Rocket — refuse to hurt Baby Groot because of how cute he is.

    This movie got a new logo as well.

  8. Speaking of Marvel’s space dramedy, the studio also confirmed rumors of a Guardians of the Galaxy theme park attraction. It’s called Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and debuts Summer 2017 at Disneyland’s California Adventure theme park. Sadly, it’s replacing the classic Tower of Terror ride. Check out a behind the scenes video of the attraction:

  9. Marvel ended their panel by confirming that Brie Larson will play Captain Marvel, as was previously rumored. She took the stage to say hi to the adoring audience, and participated in a giant Marvel selfie:

All in all, Marvel had a ton to share. What do you think of all the developments?

DC kept the trailer train trotting along today with an all new trailer for Suicide Squad!

Though Suicide Squad is just a few weeks away from hitting theaters, DC kept the momentum going today with an all new trailer featuring music from the soundtrack, new footage, and a better look at what exactly we can expect from the upcoming villain-focused super hero movie. Check it out below.

The new (and likely final) Suicide Squad trailer comes after surprise premiere of the Wonder Woman trailer and an even bigger surprise with our first look at the Justice League trailer. As with the other trailers today, this one debuted publicly alongside its Comic-Con Hall H premiere.

In this trailer, we hear a lot from Will Smith who plays Deadshot and arguably the most decorated and respected actor among the cast. “They’re gonna blame us for the whole thing. We’re the patsies, don’t forget. We’re the bad guys.” The trailer is jam-packed with all of the villains and their powers and skills on full display.

We also get a better look at the leader of the pack, Jared Leto’s The Joker. “I can’t wait to show you my toys,” Leto’s Joker says while slapping around a man.

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn also gets a lot of screen time in this trailer. Though, most of it features close ups of her back side, which stays close to the adult, rugged tone of the other trailers we have seen thus far.

There’s no doubt that fans will be flocking to theaters rooting on the bad guys when Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th. Suicide Squad features
