Teen Wolf season 3 is airing in just seven days, so we’ve put together a guide to all the new characters that will be popping up on our screens this year.

The Alpha Pack

First up we have the Alpha Pack, which will be driving the plot forward in season 3. They’ve come to Beacon Hills for a purpose, and that purpose has to do with getting Derek to join their pack. If he refuses? Well, things are going to get ugly.

Deucalion, played by Gideon Emery

Teen Wolf Season 3 Alpha Pack Leader Deucalion

Deucalion is the leader of the Alpha Pack. He’s extremely intelligent and manipulative, and he will be trying to turn Derek against Scott and the other members of his pack. He wants Derek to join him because he enjoys discovering “new talent.”

From the trailer, it has been discovered that Deucalion is actually blind, which will certainly add a whole new dimension to his character. Rather than holding him back, it looks like his other senses will be in overdrive, allowing him to outmaneuver his opponents with little trouble.

Kali, played by Felisha Terrell

Teen Wolf Season 3 Alpha Pack Kali

Kali is Deucalion’s right hand werewolf. She’s ruthless and sexy, and can definitely handle herself when it comes to combat. She fights barefoot because she uses the claws on her feet as one of her main weapons. She will definitely be one to keep an eye on.

Although we know female Alphas do exist (Derek’s mother was one, after all), Kali will be the first female Alpha we’ve seen on the show. Her character is named after the Hindu goddess, who is often referred to as the goddess of destruction, though she is also the goddess of time and change.

Aiden, played by Max Carver

Teen Wolf Season 3 Alpha Pack Aiden

Aiden is one half of the twin alphas that are a part of the Alpha Pack. He’s the brawn, but also extremely handsome and quite a charmer. While he doesn’t seem to have quite as big of a part as his brother Ethan, you can bet that Aiden won’t be left behind.

While his brother has his own target to pursue, it looks like Aiden will be concerning himself with Lydia. She’ll be trying to get over Jackson this season, and Aiden will be all too willing to help her in that regard. But don’t expect his feeling to be genuine — they’ve all got a part to play, and Deucalion is the one pulling the strings.

Ethan, played by Charlie Carver

Teen Wolf Season 3 Alpha Pack Ethan

Ethan is Aiden’s twin brother. He’s the brains of the duo, but he’s not all that different from Aiden. He’s also quite a charmer, and he’ll be devious and manipulative.

His target will be Danny, which has the fandom in quite a tizzy, seeing as Danny is a fan favorite character. Danny and Ethan will be sharing at least one pretty steamy scene this season, and we have no idea if he’ll actually develop feelings for Danny along the way. But it’s not all worrying and nail biting! In the trailer, we saw Danny being wheeled into the hospital, and Ethan was with him, looking quite worried.

Ennis, played by Brian Patrick Wade

Teen Wolf Season 3 Alpha Pack Ennis

We don’t know too much about Ennis, as his role seems to be less significant than the other Alpha Pack members. Whereas the other four got character portraits, Ennis did not, though we did get a great look at him in the trailer. It seems that he’ll be impersonating a hospital orderly when we first meet him.

Ennis is basically the muscle in the Alpha Pack. Whereas the others tend to rely on their intelligence, talents, and ability to manipulate others, Ennis is just the brute force, coming at Derek, Scott, and the others with his incredible strength.

Next up: What other werewolves will be debuting this season?

Can’t wait to see it!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 brings the L.M.D. storyline to a truly wild end. Here’s what to expect from “Self Control”!

You don’t know what’s coming

Yeah, there’s a synopsis for “Self Control” — “Suspicion turns to paranoia when the team doesn’t know who can be trusted as more LMDs infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D.” But that’s the equivalent of saying that Iron Man is about a goateed man who can fly.

Sure, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 answers a lot of questions about who is and who isn’t a robot. More profoundly though, the episode goes in for a final knead and punch of the ideas that have been floating around all season.

Sure, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 answers a lot of questions about who is and who isn’t a robot. More profoundly though, the episode goes in for a final knead and punch of the ideas that have been floating around all season.

Free will and humanity. Sacrifice and love. The nature of reality — and even of life itself. Beneath the plot, surprises, and pain, that’s what’s really going on in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spring finale.

That, and the characters who get caught in the middle.

Jed Whedon is Not. Playing. Around.

Executive producer and showrunner Jed Whedon is the man behind the pen and the camera in “Self Control,” and he’s there for a reason. Whedon’s first try at the director’s chair on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is operatic, incisive, and perpetually gut-clenching.

Yes, there are lovely and disturbing vistas, an artistry that comes from a deliberate and careful eye. But more important is the unshakable Whedon impulse that animates Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15, that builds through the episode like a cresting tide.

You know that unmistakable sense that someone is laughing behind the scenes? Yeah. That’s why Jed Whedon is here.

What’s next?

Well, that’s a very good question. “Self Control” leaves us with a few razor-like possibilities, all of which lead down spiky corridors of questions. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 is here to leave us thirsty for the season’s final seven episodes, and that’s exactly what it does.

Oh, and to answer your next question…

Cliffhanger?

Uh, yes. Cliffhanger.

Oh boy, cliffhanger.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15, “Self Control,” airs Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 10:00 p.m. on ABC.

Have President’s Day off? Here are some movies, TV shows, and soundtracks with which to celebrate President’s Day.

‘Hamilton’


Even if you were somehow lucky enough to have already seen the musical, you might as well celebrate today with another listen to the soundtrack. In case you have been living under a rock, Hamilton is a hip-hop, rap, musical about Alexander Hamilton. Yes, Hamilton never became president, but the musical does include multiple would-be presidents. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and even birthday boy himself George Washington are heavily featured in Hamilton. Based on the biography by Ron Chernow, you can get a history lesson while you listen to great music.

Have President’s Day off? Here are some movies, TV shows, and soundtracks with which to celebrate President’s Day.

‘Hamilton’


Even if you were somehow lucky enough to have already seen the musical, you might as well celebrate today with another listen to the soundtrack. In case you have been living under a rock, Hamilton is a hip-hop, rap, musical about Alexander Hamilton. Yes, Hamilton never became president, but the musical does include multiple would-be presidents. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and even birthday boy himself George Washington are heavily featured in Hamilton. Based on the biography by Ron Chernow, you can get a history lesson while you listen to great music.

‘Liberty’s Kids’


Liberty’s Kids aired in the early 2000s on PBS. Liberty’s Kids follows three teenagers from varying backgrounds throughout the American Revolution, mentored by Benjamin Franklin. It is geared for children but is still pretty enjoyable for adults. In each episode, the teenagers encounter a significant person or event from the revolution, giving a concise and entertaining history lesson. The show features many important figures throughout the revolution, showing even more presidents than in Hamilton. As one can imagine, Washington is among these.

‘Lincoln’


Lincoln is a 2012, Oscar nominated movie, directed by Steven Spielberg based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of Abraham Lincoln, Team of Rivals. Instead of a biopic of Lincoln’s entire life, Lincoln is specifically about his passing of the 13th amendment. Essentially directed between each of his science fiction blockbusters, Spielberg also made many significant historical movies, Lincoln among them. Lincoln not only shows his power as a president, but also humanizes him through an Oscar winning performance by Daniel Day-Lewis.

‘1776’


Hamilton is not the first musical about American history. Thankfully, though, because this way there are other options, one of which is 1776. Even more conveniently, the musical 1776 was adapted into a movie in the early 1970s. Heavily implied by its name, 1776 is about the signing of the Declaration of Independence. 1776 definitely has a more classical musical theater vibe than Hamilton. The strange combination of American history and musical theater allows for a humorous yet educational experience. However, as reflective of the history of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Washington is not a character in the musical; yet, it obviously includes many other significant historical figures.

‘The West Wing’ or ‘The American President’


Unlike the other items on this list, these two are about fictional presidents. But it would be nice if they were real. Of the many politically charged movies and television shows by Aaron Sorkin, these two are specifically about presidents. If you have the day off and want to attempt to binge watch seven seasons, then you may want to check out The West Wing. The West Wing follows President Bartlet and his staff and advisors during their time in the White House. If you want a movie to help you transition between Valentine’s Day and President’s Day then The American President is worth watching. It is a romantic comedy about President Shepherd, who falls in love with a lobbyist.

How else will you celebrate President’s Day?
