Teen Wolf season 4 “Dark Moon” starts off the a bit slow but builds anticipation for the rest of the season. This episode Dark Moon shows everyone who is a part of Scotts pack working together and each of them get a moment to shine with their skills. Also the was a moment where in the club with Malia and Kira dancing with each other had a bit of a girl on girl action going on to which shouldn’t be there because it had nothing to do with the plot of the episode. Also with the season they are two new strong female characters in the show Kira the kitsune and Malia the werecoyote. Since in previous seasons there was only Lydia the banshee and Allison the hunter who is now deceased. It helps to balance out the many strong male characters on the show especially when it comes to the supernatural aspect of the show.
