Check back for a recap after ‘Ghosted’ airs at 9pm ET/PT.
The episode begins with Lydia being transported to a new world through a mirror in the school bathroom. In this strange place, she gets a taste of what we’ll come to know as the creepy town of Canaan.
Back in reality, Lydia tells Malia about her Canaan dream, and she’s able to locate the town on an old map. Together, Lydia, Malia, and Scott venture to Canaan, where they’re overcome with terrible hallucinations and visions of their loved ones. The trio is clearly antsy to leave, but they won’t do that until they find out why Stiles sent them there.
In Canaan, Scott, Lydia, and Malia make their way into the home of a woman named Lenoir. They also meet a creepy little ghost boy, Caleb, who torments Malia and Scott until Lenoir agrees to set them free.
Lydia realizes that Lenoir is a Banshee, and by the end of the episode, she pieces together that ghost riders don’t take Banshees. It dawns on Lydia that as a Banshee herself, she’s going to be left behind, alone, after the Ghost Riders make their way through town.
Meanwhile, tension mounts between Argent and Melissa, who spends the entirety of the episode healing Argent’s ghost rider wound with a strange mix of Celtic herbs and spices.
In what was the most exciting moment of the episode, Theo made his highly-anticipated return out of the ground (yes, really) to help save Stiles. How did it all happen? Well, Liam and Hayden have been spending their time trying to save Beacon Hill from the Ghost Riders, and eventually team up with Mr. Douglas to formulate a plan. Kira’s mom then shows up, and Liam takes her sword, thrusting it into the ground. A large crack spreads beneath them, out of which crawls… Theo! Theo isn’t everyone’s favorite person at the moment, but he does have one thing going for him: he knows about the Wild Hunt.
By the end of the episode, Scott understands that Stiles sent them to Canaan because that’s what is in Beacon Hill’s future: Beacon Hills is going to be the next ghost town. Unless, of course, they can do something about that.
