Teen Wolf season 4, episode 9, “Perishable,” has just finished airing. Our recap explains everything that went down in Beacon Hills this week.

Teen Wolf season 4, episode 9, titled “Perishable,” begins with Parrish inside his car while Deputy Haigh, of all people, lights his car on fire. Meanwhile, Lydia and Stiles go to the sheriff and wonder if her grandmother isn’t as dead as everyone thought she was.

Before they can explore that option further, though, Parrish shows up at the precinct, definitely still alive, and attacks Haigh.

Lydia takes Parish to Scott and Derek and tries to explain to him that he’s a little bit different from most people. But Derek, unfortunately, has no idea what Parish could be.

Back at the hospital, Sheriff Stilinski is being prepped for surgery after catching a bullet in the shoulder. He and Stiles argue about whose job it is to take care of the other, and it’s a touching moment that ends when the sheriff starts feeling pretty mellow from all the morphine in his system.

As the group ponders how many professional — and non-professional — assassins are out there hunting them, Liam’s printer starts going crazy and printing off copies of the Dead Pool. A lot of names are already crossed off, and it seems to be narrowing down to just our heroes.

Teen Wolf Season 4 Episode 9 Perishable Liam

Lydia begins to tell the others about her family’s history. Her grandmother, Lorraine, loved another woman named Maddie. One day, Lorraine heard a storm even though there were blue skies outside the window. She called Maddie, who was planning a boat trip, to tell her to be careful. Maddie went out on the boat anyway, and died in a freak storm.

Afterwards, Lorraine did everything she could in order to learn about her abilities. Most of it didn’t work, until she found Meredith, who she ended up driving insane with her various experiments. It was Lorraine who created the code for the list, and it was Lorraine who left the note for Lydia.

In the next scene, Scott finds the gun Braeden gave Derek and then tells him his name is what broke the third Dead Pool. Scott tries to tell Derek he’s in danger, but Derek has no problem being blunt: “Scott, banshees don’t predict danger. They predict death.”

Scott counts the money that’s still under his bed, but decides to just put it back. Is he still struggling with whether or not to keep it? Liam, meanwhile, is definitely struggling. He keeps seeing the Berzerkers at every turn, and it’s obvious this whole situation is really taking its toll on him.

Stiles and Lydia continue to pour over the code Lorraine Martin left for her, and it’s only when she remembers her affinity with The Little Mermaid that she breaks the code. The last cypher key is Ariel, which shows them the list Lydia’s grandmother is on.

All across town, it seems, printers are going off and releasing the Dead Pool to everyone. Only this is an updated version. Derek is off the list, presumably because he’s fully human now, and Liam has been upgraded to a whopping $18 million.

Parish looks up the people on the list and realizes they’re all dead — they all committed suicide at Eichen House.

With the party at full swing at the school, Scott makes his way through the crowd. Malia and Liam are both trying to get drunk, even though Scott says it won’t work on them. And Liam still refuses to talk to Mason about his problems.

Lydia and Stiles visit Brunski and bribe him to let them into the Eichen House files. At the party, Malia and Liam appear to be drunk.

We don’t have time to dwell on that, though, because back at Eichen House, Stiles’ name ends up on the new list and Brunski reveals that he knows a lot more than he has let on in the past.

Braeden once again impersonates a U.S. Marshall and interrogates Haigh. Or, well, just punches him in the face. Scott figures out it’s the music making them weak, not the drinks. And at Eichen House, Brunkski makes Lydia listen to the tape of her grandmother’s murder. On the tape, Lorraine tells Brunski not to hurt her granddaughter.

Two more assassins show up and gather Scott, Liam, and Malia, dousing them in gasoline.

Mason saves the day by turning off the music, allowing Scott to come back to his senses. Derek and Braeden get there right on time and help him stop the assassins for good.

And speaking of good timing, Parish has an impeccable sense of it. He saves Lydia from Brunski, and shoots him in the process.

And then the Benefactor is finally revealed. It was Meredith all along! Did you guess it correctly?

Forget seeing Luke Cage and Daisy Johnson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Jeph Loeb, it’s simply too hard to plan.

Although the Marvel movies and TV series ostensibly exist in the same universe, and although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does its best to include Avengers references whenever possible, TV show characters are unlikely to ever show up in the movies.

This despite Chloe Bennet’s continued efforts to remind people that she is, in fact, Marvel’s first on-screen female Asian superhero, and the awesome crossover possibilities the Marvel Netflix series have opened up.

Marvel fans have long been aware of the difficulties of bringing TV characters into the movie ‘verse, but at the 2016 TCAs, Jeph Loeb provided a few more reasons for why it’s practically impossible to coordinate.

“Part of the challenge of doing this sort of thing is that the movies are planned out years in advance of what it is that we are doing,” Loeb says, as quoted by SlashFilm. “Television moves at an incredible speed. The other part of the problem is that when you stop and think about it, if I’m shooting a television series and that’s going to go on over a six-month or eight-month period, how am I going to get Mike [Colter] to be able to go be in a movie? I need Mike to be in a television show.”

In terms of planning out the character arcs, this makes a lot of sense. A Marvel movie might be mapped out years in advance of production, for not to mention release, which means any character scheduled to appear would need to have their stories planned for many seasons in advance. The continuity would certainly be hard to keep track of.

Of course they could still throw in cameos, which fans would probably really appreciate — and crossovers from movies-TV are much more doable, as evidenced by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)’s multiple appearances on AoS.

But Marvel is wary of doing that too much, too, because “we never want to be known as an Easter egg farm. It has to work within the story. We never want to do Luke Cage gets into a cab as Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are getting out of the cab,” Loeb says, referencing The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

However, don’t lose hope yet. “Anything is possible,” says Loeb. “As I often get reported by you folks for saying #ItsAllConnected, our feeling is that the connection isn’t just whether or not somebody is walking into a movie or walking out of a television show. It’s connected in the way that the shows come from the same place, that they are real, that they are grounded.”

If Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda weren’t enough to get you excited about Mary Poppins Returns, maybe Meryl Streep’s name on the roster will do the trick.

Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake of the original 1964 classic but rather a sequel to the Julie Andrews-led musical. As such, it stands to reason that we’ll be getting some new characters this time around. One of those characters will be Miranda’s Jack, who will be a street lamplighter.

And, according to Variety, another one of those new characters will also be portrayed by none other than Meryl Streep, who will be taking on the role of Mary Poppins’ cousin, Topsy. And, yes, the legendary actress will be taking on a singing role for the film.

This will also reunite Streep with her Into the Woods co-star Blunt, as well as Director Rob Marshall and Producer Marc Platt. Streep played the Witch in Into the Woods, while Blunt portrayed the Baker’s Wife opposite James Corden.

Disney’s official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns reads:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Mary Poppins Returns and will hit theaters December 25, 2018.

Are you on board with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ now that Meryl Streep has joined the cast?

Uh oh — fans of Nick and Jess aren’t going to like this news! Megan Fox is returning to New Girl in season 6 for a major arc.

Last season, Megan Fox stepped in to fill in Jess’ place while Zooey Deschanel was on maternity leave. During that time, Fox’s character Regan grew quite close to Nick! They even ended up going to Cece and Schmidt’s wedding together and made plans for the summer. With awful timing too, since it seemed like Jess was just about ready to admit her feelings for Nick.

Now TV Line is reporting that Fox will be returning for a huge story arc in New Girl season 6. It’s believed that Nick will return home from his summer with Regan alone, but she will appear around the middle of the season. The timing of her appearance is due to Fox’s own pregnancy with her third child.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the writers will definitely be throwing some angst into the script. It always seems like either Jess or Nick is pining for the other while they’re in a relationship. Will Jess try to get over her feelings for Nick with someone else? Or will she just try to show him why they should be together? Fans will have to wait and see when the show returns!

New Girl season 6 returns to Fox on September 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET!
