Teen Wolf season 3, episode 13, “Anchors,” just finished airing. Read our recap and discuss the episode with fellow fans!

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 13, titled “Anchors,” begins with Stiles in bed having a nightmare, repeatedly mumbling “don’t let them in.” We’re thrown into his dream, which lands us in Beacon Hills High School. The Nemeton is featured right away, and comes alive as Stiles tries to touch it.

Every Stydia shipper’s heart then skips a beat as Stiles wakes up and we realize Lydia is beside him in bed. Stiles explains to her that he had a dream within a dream, and then pauses to ask why she’s there. He gets out of bed to shut his door, worried that “they” might get in. The only problem is that when he walks out, he comes upon the Nemeton once more.

Again, it was only a dream.

The next day at school, Stiles is talking to Scott, telling him about sleep paralysis and his nightmares. “You know what scares me the most?” Stiles asks. “I’m not even sure this is real.” And in that moment, Stiles wakes up screaming, finally in the real world.

Is this Teen Wolf, or Inception!?

The next morning we see Scott experiencing some difficulty with his powers right before he has a tense conversation with Isaac about his feelings for Allison, which gets Isaac thrown against the wall.

Their relationship is…complicated.

Allison finds herself in a hallucination where she’s made her way to the morgue. When she looks inside a cold chamber bearing her aunt’s name, Kate makes her way up the chamber, and we’re certain we’re going to have nightmares for a month.

Scott, Stiles, and Allison continue to struggle through their day while Lydia, for her part, takes great pleasure in the fact that she’s not the crazy one anymore.

We also get our first glimpse of Kira as she gets an embarrassing introduction by her father, the new history teacher at Beacon Hills.

Teen Wolf Anchors Kira

Scott begins to transform in the middle of the hallway, and Stiles must rush him off to an empty classroom. Scott finds a way to stop the change, and Stiles realizes that not all of this is in their heads — it actually is happening to them.

Sheriff Stilinski, meanwhile, is working through some old files now that he’s a bit more enlightened to some of the circumstances that probably took place during those times.

Eight years ago, Papa Stilinski had to tell a man that his wife and two daughters were killed in a car crash. The youngest daughter, Malia, was seemingly dragged from the wreckage by coyotes and was never found. And since the accident happened on a full moon, the Sheriff thinks werewolves could have been involved.

As the group discusses what could be going on with them, Kira walks over and offers a possible explanation. It’s called Bardo, she says, which is a Tibetan word for an in between state, something that’s caught between life and death. There are several stages of Bardo, which include hallucinations and even being visited by deities. And the final stage of Bardo is death.

Of course it is.

Scott and Stiles head over to the one person they can usually trust to have some of the answers: Deaton. He explains that their subconscious is trying to communicate with them, and even translates the sign language Stiles saw when he was hallucinating. The meaning of the phrase is, “When is a door not a door?” And the answer, as Scott points out, is when it’s a jar (“ajar”).

So not only do Scott and Co. have to deal with their usual level of craziness, but they also have to deal with the fact that a door into their minds has now been opened. When exactly are they supposed to get their homework done?

Teen Wolf Anchors Stiles

As the boys are leaving Deaton’s, Papa Stilinski shows up to ask Scott for help in finding Malia’s body. So, as the sheriff interviews Malia’s father about the accident, Stiles and Scott sneak in upstairs to try to get a lock on the girl’s scent, but all Scott can smell is the family pet. The sheriff feels pretty bad about bringing up old memories for Mr. Tate, and that’s when the truth comes out: He’s doing all of this because Scott’s father is reviewing his ability to solve cases, and it might get him fired.

Scott is so angry that he nearly transforms in front of his dad, but his mom pulls him out of the room just in time. Scott has trouble stopping the transformation because Allison was his anchor, and he no longer has Allison. “Then be your own anchor,” she says.

Scott rushes over to Stiles’ house in the middle of the night, and the two of them plan to find Malia’s body on their own. Anyone else getting flashbacks to season 1?

Isaac and Allison are in bed together during a pretty steamy scene, though Allison is clearly still thinking about Scott and how he might feel about all of this. That’s when we realize this is all a dream, as Kate pops up out of nowhere and kills Isaac.

Stiles and Scott stumble upon the wreckage from eight years ago, and they quickly realize they’re not alone out in the woods. Scott chases after a coyote, and when he catches up to it, he realizes that it’s actually Malia. And her eyes are blue!

In the final scene, we see Derek and Peter tied up to a chain link fence, getting tortured. The only glimpse we see of their assailant is of a man’s hand holding a knife.

The upcoming 25th anniversary edition of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast includes a couple of first looks at next year’s live-action adaptation.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been a quarter of a century since the animated Beauty and the Beast hit movie theaters. To celebrate the occasion Disney is putting out an anniversary edition, and its special features section includes a treat: Our first look at Cogsworth and Lumière in the live-action installment, as well as a glimpse of a scene within Gaston’s tavern.

As confirmed by producer Jack Morrissey on Facebook, this photo of Cogsworth (played by Ian McKellen) and Lumière (Ewan McGregor) is concept art, but it gives us a sense of the style that director Bill Condon is shooting for:

While it’s nice to finally see a glimpse of a couple of the characters, a big question remains unanswered: How will these objects look once they have faces on them? (Cogsworth’s face might be hinted at in the center of the clock.)

Also on the Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition is a shot from the the “Gaston” musical number. From left to right we see Alexis Loizon as Stanley, Josh Gad as LeFou (just over Gaston’s shoulder), and Luke Evans (with his back to the camera) as Gaston.

Update: And here’s another look at the movie, courtesy of this person on Twitter — this time we get to see Dan Stevens as human Beast!

We’ll be curious to get our hands on the anniversary edition in September, because we expect we’ll see more from the new movie than the two stills above.

Disney released the first trailer for the live-action Beauty and the Beast in May. It was very much a teaser trailer, as it didn’t provide any looks at the characters — except Belle (Emma Watson), appearing through the glass casing protecting the film’s iconic rose.

In fact, the trailer’s first looks at the various settings (Namely the Beast’s castle) fell in line with the visual style we see in the above concept art.

Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens hit theaters March 17, 2017.

Apple — always one to push the boundaries by simplifying their products as much as possible — is reportedly looking to remove the all-important Home button in next year’s new iPhone.

Apple loves making their products as simple as possible. The iPod was a success because of how clean it looked compared to other MP3 players. With Apple TV, Steve Jobs bragged about how few buttons the device’s remote had.

But since 2007, every new iPhone has had the same number of physical buttons, switches, and ports: A ringer switch, a lock button, volume up/down buttons, a USB port, and a headphone jack.

Apple — always one to push the boundaries by simplifying their products as much as possible — is reportedly looking to remove the all-important Home button in next year’s new iPhone.

Apple loves making their products as simple as possible. The iPod was a success because of how clean it looked compared to other MP3 players. With Apple TV, Steve Jobs bragged about how few buttons the device’s remote had.

But since 2007, every new iPhone has had the same number of physical buttons, switches, and ports: A ringer switch, a lock button, volume up/down buttons, a USB port, and a headphone jack.

That changes next month, when Apple is expected to announce that the iPhone 7 will be lacking a headphone jack. Instead, users will be listening to music via the Lightning port (which you currently use to charge and sync your iPhone).

And for 2017, Apple will reportedly go one step further by removing the Home button.

Ah, the Home button. It’s always been there for us — it’s our captain for navigating the iPhone. We use it to switch between apps, we use it to get to our Home screen, we use it to summon Siri, and we use it to read our finger print. Back in the “old days,” we used it to force quit apps when they froze on us.

In a new report, Bloomberg says Apple is planning to remove the Home button for the 2017 iPhone, which will presumably be called iPhone 7s. It’s billed as a “major redesign of the iPhone for 2017 that focuses more heavily on the display.”

Previous rumor mill reports have suggested that Apple will ditch the Home button in order to decrease the size of the top top and bottom bezels, thereby making the phone not as tall, or using the freed up space to add more screen.

Here’s a mock up of what that could look like, via TapSmart:

What remains unclear is how users will be able to unlock and navigate their iPhone without the Home button. Reports have suggested that the whole screen will serve as a TouchID surface and a Home button (using the 3D Touch feature Apple launched last year).

Interestingly, next month’s release of iOS 10 will introduce a new way to unlock your iPhone: You’ll have to press down on the Home button to activate an unlocking. Previously, all you had to do was rest your finger on the Home button while your lock screen was awake.

Disney is making another live-action movie, and this time it’s James and the Giant Peach, to be developed by Director Sam Mendes.

To refresh your memory, James and the Giant Peach is the terrifying delightful children’s movie directed by Henry Selick and based off of the Roald Dahl story. It features nightmare-inducing adorable stop-motion animated bugs that helped James float away from his mean aunts in a — you guessed it — giant peach.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

Now, according to Deadline, Disney is developing an all-live-action remake of the film. Nick Hornby will write the script, while Joe Roth is in negotiations to sign on as a producer.

If Mendes’ name sounds familiar, it’s because he directed the last two James Bond features, both Skyfall and Spectre, as well as 1999’s American Beauty.

You can check out the trailer for the horrifying original film below:

As of late, Disney has been announcing live-action versions of its properties left and right, including The Nutcracker (which has a huge cast of well-known actors), The Little Mermaid (with Lin-Manuel Miranda attached to help write the music), Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson), and Cruella (starring Emma Stone), among others.

With the amount of remakes — especially in the live-action department — it’s no wonder James and the giant Peach is the latest to be announced.
