The biggest complaint I have of the early episodes of every Teen Wolf
season are that really nothing happens that's too consequential. It's all setup and no action, and we have to cling on to the fun little moments as we wait for the big action pieces. Plus, we haven't even seen Coach yet!
Teen Wolf has a love-hate relationship with the history of its own show. It remembers its villains and histories when it wants to -- Kate Argent, for example -- and completely forgets it once off-screen -- signora Jackson, Isaac, Scott's dad. But this episode, "Parasomnia," smartly recalls character dynamics and other runners to hold us over until the plot kicks in.
