Team Zombie faces an episode of Teen Wolf that is more or less all filler, and yet manages to be full of spiders. It makes sense in context, honest. It’s Zombpocalypse Now!
Season 6, Episode 16 “Triggers”
Written by Eric Wallace
Directed by Eric Wallace
Timothy: So rather curiously, we had a bit of an audio glitch this week, and the first two minutes or so of the beginning of our recording just wasn’t there.
Dustin: Which means that we open talking about a book that isn’t named, and that’s all kinds of annoying. We were talking about missing Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, which led to talking about series that were continued after Author Existence Failure, and specifically, the final Hitchhiker’s book, Mostly Harmless.
Timothy: Which ticked Dustin off so bad he didn’t read Adams again for a year, until Blackadder brought that very English – and very influenced by Adam’s depression – ending into perspective.
Dustin: And now you’re all caught up, in time to hear us discuss the most Filler-McFillerston episode of Teen Wolf. SO MUCH FILLER.
Timothy: And only four more episodes after this, so what they were thinking, I couldn’t even begin to tell you. I did like the chance to riff on the “full of spiders” thing again.
Dustin: I really do think I’m going to get a pillow embroidered with “Nothing Good Is Ever Full Of Spiders”. It will be a lesson I will happily pass onto my kids.
Timothy: As a good father should. So sit back folks, and listen as we ask “why is this happening”, and “don’t they know that’s not how that works”…
Dustin: AND WHY ARE SCOTT AND MALIA A THING? WHY, SHOW? WHY?
Timothy: You know… the important questions. And we’ll see you next week, here on Zompocalypse Now!
The final season of Teen Wolf airs Sunday nights at 8/7c on MTV.
