And we’re back with another rousing episode of  that moved the plot forward about a day. Thank you to Madelyn for covering for me for last week’s episode while I got in line extra early for Comic Con. I’m kidding. (Maybe.)

Little has changed in the last few episodes. The story lines remain largely separate with character groups traipsing off on their own little adventures that tangentially revolve around the overarching plot of the identity and motive of the Benefactor. We’ve got Scott and Liam, Derek and Malia, Scott and Chris, and Stiles, Lydia, and Deputy Parrish. Again, the B- and C-plots struggle for time and importance as the show works to give everyone in the main cast something to do when there’s actually very little to be done.  While I appreciate the show revolving around a big central problem, I’m just not sure the route the writers are taking to get there is working.

Once we get the cold open with Kate Argent and her continued search for some self-control out of the way, (and control is one of the many things Kate lacks along with sanity and a moral compass), the episode picks up immediately after the lacrosse game gone wrong. Teenage bounty hunter Garrett is missing and Violet has been arrested for her serial killing ways. Scott’s FBI agent dad identifies her as an orphan, bringing the title of the episode into play in an only slightly clunky way. There’s a lot more to Agent McCall, or at least I think we’re supposed to believe that, but if he’s got a back story of any importance, they better start revealing it. (And if he’s the Benefactor, well, that’s kind of dumb.) Oh, and Scott finds the Murder Money in Garrett’s locker, in cash, even though we’ve previously seen the Deadpool payments get transferred electronically. Whatever.

"It’s ideal for Headquarters, of course. My father put every security measure known to wizardkind on it when he lived here. It’s unplottable, so Muggles could never come and call — as if they’d ever have wanted to — and now Dumbledore’s added his protection, you’d be hard put to find a safer house anywhere."

Once again on  we have two different, almost complete separate story lines going on that only manage to converge in the sense that they’re both part of the overall story arc of the season. In “The Benefactor,” we’ve got the group of mostly supernatural teenagers (sorry, Stiles) on one side of the plot divide and the adults on the other. Derek gets lumped into the adults because the show has decided he’s no longer only a few years older than the teenagers and is now in his mid-to-late-twenties. The stress of his life is clearly aging him faster than it should.

Team Teens:

We pick up almost immediately after the end of the last episode and discover that Scott “Master Planner” McCall has kidnapped poor, recently bitten Liam. The terrified boy is bound and gagged as Scott and Stiles artlessly attempt to explain the whole “werewolf” thing to him. But what the boys don’t know is that Liam has a bit of an anger problem (though they should have realized that back on the lacrosse field). In a scene that finds the slapstick dialed up to 11, Liam escapes his bonds (a visual “theme” that recurs throughout the episode) and goes running off into the night. Look out Beacon Hills, there’s a new teen wolf in town and he’s pissed.
