So I haven’t seen anyone on my dash talking about this yet, but I was rewatching “Chaos Rising” last night, and I was struck by Isaac during the ice-bath scene saying, “They’re here, they’re here!”
Obviously, it could be him remembering when he was in the bank, remembering when the Alphas found him. But when combined with the other weird things that were happening (the power flickering, the fact that we the audience never heard him say anything about Erica being dead and he doesn’t remember saying anything of the kind) I’m left wondering if he didn’t mean something more literal. I have to wonder if at least some of the Alphas weren’t there, in the room when we didn’t see it, altering everyone’s memories to further their own agenda.
It seems overcomplicated, true. But then, so does everything the Alphas are doing so far. They lured Derek (and Scott, though that may have been unintentional) to the bank vault in an elaborate IT’S A TRAP series of convoluted clues and enticements that they could only expect to work if they knew enough about the way the pack and its allies behaved. They seemed to expect them to be held there by a line of mountain ash, but given that they’ve held Boyd and Erica for months and had Isaac under their power for who knows how long, surely they would’ve known that there were multiple humans involved in that pack. And given that Erica, Boyd, and Isaac were all present and involved in the events in ‘Raving’—and that Ms. Morrell is somehow connected to both Deaton and the Alpha pack—it’s not exactly a stretch to say they probably know about Stiles being a spark. None of the Alphas stuck around to make sure that things were finished, that Scott (who we must at this point, from Deucalion’s statements, assume is the one they really want dead) was taken out of the picture. All of which would mean that they intentionally led them into a trap that they fully expected to fail.
The Alphas aren’t playing things directly; they’re playing some sort of long game that hasn’t quite revealed itself yet. Which makes me question how deep they’re willing to go, how much of anything that we’re seeing is trustworthy at all.
I definitely picked up on Isaac yelling “they’re here!” and wondered if he meant he saw the Alphas in his memory if if that was a literal statement. As you say, when we weren’t actually shown Isaac saying he saw Erica’s body just Stiles telling him he said that, well… My spidey senses tingled. That was a definite choice that the writers made NOT to show Isaac saying that, and the question is WHY? It’s possible that was a melodramatic way to do it, but it could have been equally dramatic to have Isaac yelling it - and then we would have seen everyone’s reaction to that statement. As it was, by the time we the viewers learned Isaac had seen Erica’s body, Derek (especially) and the others had had a chance to process it. That’s such a wasted opportunity to show Derek in pain that I can’t believe Davis would willingly give it up! Which suggests there’s more to it…
Now, here’s the thing, it makes much more sense for the Alphas to alter Isaac’s memory so he actually does remember it as him seeing Erica’s body rather than for the Alphas to sneak in and alter the memory of 4 other people. Possibly Awesome Nameless Girl broke him out before they could do so, and this was their plan B. Possibly they couldn’t be sure that Isaac’s manipulated memories would stand up under werewolf tricks (like the ice bath), while if they could actually alter Derek, Scott, Stiles and Deaton’s memories without them even suspecting the Alphas were around, then they wouldn’t have reason to suspect their memories. But why would Erica being alive but thought to be dead be such a big deal?? That’s the part I get confused about.
But… here’s another thought - Isaac said “they’re here!” and viewers assumed he was talking about the Alphas because he had just been talking about them. But you know who else said “they’re here”? Jackson when he was drugged up after the Rave. At the time it seemed like a dropped plotline, but what if it’s not? What if “they” are something that has been around for a while? What if “they” are the ones who kidnapped Heather? What if “they” have an agenda that we have no clue about yet, but both times somehow involves people Derek’s bitten? What if “they” got a pretty good look at Stiles when he was talking to “them” in Jackson’s body and now they took the girl he was about to hook up with?
What if “they” can cause electrical shorts in lights, hallucinations in wine cellars, and implant memories in a group of people?
That seems kind of like poltergeist activity to me. And when was the last time Beacon Hills had a large group of people die together to form a “they”? Maybe…. 6 years ago?
Holy shit you guys just killed me.
Especially that last bit… that gave me CHILLS.
And I’ve wondering how weird this is placed on the credits… Right before Stiles, the person who he know is going to be trying to solve this unwerewolf murderers.
Then we have the banshee theory for Lydia, that would totally fit with this plot, because “a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die” and “during the Middle Ages it was said that the banshee would also protect the souls of those of good heart and deed after they had passed on.”
It fits and now I’m scared it’s true lol.
I’VE GOT CHILLS
THEY ARE MULTIPLYING

what i love most about summer is it gets warm enough that guys become non-protective of their sweatshirts so they’re just sitting in their closets all folded and unsuspecting and it’s almost too easy to just take one or three in the morning like was i wearing this yesterday no i wasn’t but you won’t even miss it until october when you’ll be sweatshirtless and i’ll be warm hahaaa suckers
