After returning from its winter break, season 5 of MTV’s hit supernatural series Teen Wolf has taken unexpected turns, drastic enough to kill all of its characters at once! It may be hard to believe, but the aftermath of yesterday’s (February 2) episode has left the show’s fans stunned by the calamity that’s set to hit the show next Tuesday. Lydia (Holland Roden) must survive the procedure that amplifies her powers, and if she doesn’t, everyone else will end up dead with her. If you missed it this week, here’s a recap of what you need to know from Teen Wolf season 5 episode 15.
This week’s episode, titled Amplification, revealed Dr. Gabriel Valack’s (Steven Brand) grotesque experimentation to amplify Lydia’s powers in Eichen House. The episode saw Theo (Cody Christian) offer help to Scott (Tyler Posey) with saving Lydia from the house. As all units, including Scott and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), hunt down the beast that wreaked havoc all over Beacon Hills, the creature comes across Deputy Parrish (Ryan Kelley) who was just able to kill it, but was he successful? (We don’t want to give away too many spoilers, just in case you still want to watch!)
Teen Wolf season 5 episode 15 exposed Valack’s horrifying “amplification” tests when Dr. Deaton (Seth Gilliam) showed pictures of it to Stiles and Scott. The process involves drilling the victim’s head to strengthen their powers and while this happens, the victim has to overcome deathly screams bursting around their head. Lydia is Valack’s next patient.
By the time Stiles reached Lydia in Eichen House, she already had a hole in her head. Lydia pleaded with him to leave before the dreadful Valack arrived. As Stiles hid, Theo and his pack walked in looking for a hellhound, but saw Parrish coming instead. As Scott and Liam (Dylan Sprayberry) fought the guards, their powers got stronger, making them confident in their ability to rescue Lydia.

The gang had no option but to try and save her, as Lydia is a potential savior of Beacon Hills. But even if she survives the drilling, Lydia might scream herself to death and go ultrasonic, thereby killing everyone who can hear her. And even if she overcomes this, Valack will continue tormenting her powers by drilling more holes in her head. Another reason they need her to survive is because otherwise Theo could get his claws on her again, and this time, he’d reap all her powers.
Now that you’re caught up with Teen Wolf season 5 episode 15, don’t miss the next episode, titled Lie Ability, airing next Tuesday, February 9 on MTV at 9/8c. In the meantime, check out the promo for episode 16 below:
