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.

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.

Hypable speaks to co-founder Jeff Annison about Legion M’s goals, fan engagement, and potential impact on the entertainment industry.

An exciting new project launched over the summer: Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Hype Podcast sat down with co-founder and company president Jeff Annison, in order to learn more about the ambitious startup that promises to give fans more creative control of entertainment production.

The full interview is available to download here or via iTunes, or you can stream it below:

In the interview, Annison explains the mission of Legion M, which is to bring fans directly into the production process. Says Annison, “For the first time in history, we are architected to be built from the ground up to be owned by fans.”

With a ‘Legion’ of fan investors behind them, Annison believes that Legion M’s approach to selecting and developing projects will be very different from anything else we’ve seen in Hollywood.

Where usually creators will struggle to make their content stand out from the crowd, “bringing the audience into the process [of creating entertainment], we’ve already got a built-in audience,” Annison explains. “If you can have the audience of content be invested in content, it gives that content a competitive advantage.”

One of the key ways in which Legion M hopes to influence the creative industry is by opening the door for more diverse projects.

As Hollywood is so revenue-driven, oftentimes the ‘risk’ of letting a movie’s lead character be a woman, a person of color and/or a member of the LGBT community is simply considered too great. But Legion M, being owned by fans, has the opportunity to tip the scales. Because if the investors want more diversity and new kinds of stories, that’s exactly what they’re going to get.

“The reason that there are so many superhero movies and reboots and remakes… Hollywood’s figured out the formula. You pick something with an established fanbase, and if you make the movie you know it’s less risky because you know those people are gonna come see the next Superman movie,” says Annison. “Whereas if it’s an unknown story, you just don’t know. So we believe when you make the audience part of the process, these fans that are part of our studio … if you’ve got an audience that’s baked into it, that gives you so much more creative leeway.”

In practice, this means that Legion M, “could come up with a completely new and novel story that’s never been tried before, and know that it’s gonna have some success” — which means that it’d actually get produced, unlike many original ideas that come to Hollywood to die.

Further, fan owners of Legion M can experience unprecedented involvement with the creative process. Not only are they involved with selecting and developing projects, but, “our promise to our investors is that we’re gonna take you along for the ride. When we film a movie, we wanna live-stream from the set. When we have project opportunities, we wanna put them in front of you. We give the Legion a voice.”

To start with, Legion M is partnering with Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, which created Robot Chicken. Annison explains that they still have “dozens” of projects that networks have rejected, and Legion M is working on bringing some of them to life.

In terms of representation, Legion M doesn’t necessarily want to commit to a quota of diversity. Instead, where they expect to be able to influence Hollywood is at the “table” where these decisions are made — and, “because we’re owned by such a broad, diverse group of people, we’ve got a better shot than anybody else at being able to affect that change.”

As Annison explains: “Fans have the ultimate power. Our money is what makes this whole thing spin around. When we combine and come together, we’ve got all the power.”
