Teen Wolf season 3, episode 17, “Silverfinger,” just finished airing. Read our recap and discuss the episode with fellow fans!

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 17, titled “Silverfinger,” begins with a flashback to a younger Chris. He was only 18 and he was in Japan. This was when he first came up against the masked warriors. But they weren’t after Chris, thank goodness. Instead, they attacked someone who was supernatural, though Chris doesn’t know what the man was.

A man named Katashi, nicknamed Silverfinger, is the only one who survived. Chris has been looking for him all night, though it’s been difficult. The group realizes that he may be the only one who has answers for them, though. All Chris can tell Scott and the others is that the mask the warriors wear hides absolute darkness beneath.

The next morning, Kira sneaks back home and fondly remembers being dropped off by Scott. Scott is obviously worried about what she thinks of him and the others being werewolves, but he shouldn’t be. Kira asks to see his werewolf face, and he shows her, much to her delight.

The twins decide to take it upon themselves to protect Scott because they think the “demonic ninjas” are after him. Scott appreciates the gesture, but he’s not entirely sure he wants their protection around the clock. Not only that, but he believes the warriors might be after Kira.

Scott slips his protectors to talk to Stiles, who goes to show him what he learned earlier that morning — that he was the one who opened the chemical closet door and wrote the message to Barrow on the board. Unfortunately, all the evidence is gone, including the key. Stiles swears he had it, and even compares something Barrow did as the Shrapnel Bomber with the trick Stiles played on Coach on Mischief Night.

Chris comes up with a plan to draw Katashi out. He’s going to sell him an antique gun, since Katashi is a collector. Unfortunately, Katashi isn’t going to make the deal himself, and Chris sends Isaac in to distract the men long enough for Allison and Chris to find his old enemy.

Teen Wolf Season 3 Episode 17 Silverfinger Allison Isaac Kissing

Isaac is extremely nervous and doesn’t think he’s going to be able to pull off the disguise, but Allison convinces him with a kiss (and a little groping) that he’s man enough to do it. It works flawlessly.

Stiles checks himself into the hospital, and Melissa takes down the information about how he’s feeling. She gives him a sedative since he hasn’t been sleeping, and with a whisper of “Thanks, Mom,” he drifts off. But Melissa isn’t content to leave it at that, and compares Stiles’ charts to his mother’s. It turns out she suffered from the same things Stiles is currently suffering from, which include hallucinations, panic attacks, and insomnia.

Scott slips his protectors once again and brings Kira to his house in order to keep her safe from the masked warriors. Kira tells him she thinks she is a Kitsune, since they take the form of a fox and being able to control electricity is part of their power. Scott and Kira almost kiss, but they break apart when Scott thinks his mother has arrived home.

Unfortunately, it is Agent McCall who arrives at the house, and he’s there because he knows the two of them broke into his office. While there, the sun goes down, and the masked warriors attack them. Agent McCall is injured, but Derek and the twins show up to help Scott defend his home. When they drive the warriors out, Melissa triggers a magical security system that Deaton helped install, and the warriors are successfully kept at bay.

Back with Katashi, Chris and Allison confront the man and Chris reminds him of who he is. When he shows Katashi the mask, the old man says that the masked warriors are called oni, and that they are demons and are unstoppable. The oni are looking for someone who is possessed, and they’re marking the ones who are not.

Teen Wolf Season 3 Episode 17 Allison

Katashi also explains that there are 13 kinds of kitsune, and one of them is evil — the nogitsune. The man from 24 years ago, the one the oni originally attacked, was possessed by this dark spirit. Katashi says they must let the oni kill the nogitsune, no matter who it is.

Agent McCall is seriously injured from the oni, and Melissa tells Scott he needs to go to the hospital. But how can they leave if the house is surrounded?

Agent McCall wants to talk to Scott, but Melissa tells him he’s not going to do it on his deathbed. In the other room, the oni find their way into the house, and after a talk with Allison, Scott tells everyone to do nothing. The oni check Scott and Kira, and they find that nothing is possessing either one of them.

In the final scene, Melissa and Scott get Agent McCall to the hospital just in time. Scott goes to find Stiles, but before he does, we’re treated to quite a different Stiles than we’re used to.

The oni show up to check Stiles and they find that he is indeed possessed with the dark spirit of the nogitsune. Before they can attack him, however, the dark spirit takes over and Stiles kills each one of the oni. As Scott shows up, Stiles reverts back to his normal self and acts as if nothing is wrong.

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:

  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:

  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
