The idea of a group of teens getting bitten by a wolf and transforming into werewolves with abs and superpowers isn’t something new to TV. This concept has been employed by several shows and movies to produce some entertaining content. Some of these TV shows, including MTV’s well-known “Teen Wolf,” might lead us to believe that “Wolf Pack” is a spin-off of “Teen Wolf,” but the executive producers have dispelled any confusion regarding this. The narrative is adapted from Edo van Belkom’s novels and depicts a wildfire that destroyed a town and led wild animals to flee for their lives. The series’ leads, Blake and Everett, had been bitten by a wolf and started to accept the fact that they were now in the utmost danger. However, a pair of werewolf twins who were already aware of their identity were searching for a pack to be a part of. Will destiny bring these four together to form the “Wolf Pack?” Let’s see how that plays out.
How Did Blake And Everett Get Bitten?
The first episode of “Wolf Pack” season 1 opens with a huge wildfire in the Angeles National Forest across the mountains. A school bus got stuck in traffic close to the forest which caught fire. We meet Everett, a panicky teen guy who couldn’t get along with most people in school because of his panic attacks. Over the phone, his therapist was helping him to relax, but it didn’t last long as the wildfire quickly grew out of control and forced all the animals to flee the woods in search of safety. Wolves, bighorn sheep, and other creatures ran over people who were in their path, hurting and sometimes even killing them. Everett and Blake were both bitten by a wolf, but they were spared severe injury.
While Everett was brought to the hospital, Blake overlooked her injury and returned home, only to discover that her family was unable to stay there owing to the thick smoke and the risk of the house catching on fire. Blake is not very trendy for a teenager because she dislikes using phones, computers, and emails, which makes it difficult for her father to get in touch with her. Blake assisted Danny, her autistic brother, who was terrified to find a big wolf staring at them from behind a bush. Blake also noticed it but ignored it and went into her room. She found a terrible wolf’s claw wound on her body. She disregarded the fact that she needed treatment since she didn’t want to worry her absent-minded father, who was not very responsible with his fatherly duties. She told her father that once, she took her brother to a motel for the night during a fight between her parents. Both of the children weren’t home for the night, which her father didn’t even bother to notice the next day. Hearing about the incident, Blake’s father realized his mistake. Blake requested that her father drive them to the motel so they might spend the night there.
Meanwhile, in the hospital, Everett discovered that the majority of his schoolmates had been hurt and admitted. He felt dizzy when he noticed a nurse asking him about the animal that bit him. It was a wolf, as Everett recalled. He had nightmares about the bighorn sheep and the wolf’s claw emerging from its womb. When he awoke, he discovered his parents had been contacted by the hospital. Everett received a creepy call warning him to leave the hospital because “it” would locate him and kill him, the caller claimed. “It” could perhaps be the werewolf that bit Blake and Everett. Later episodes of “Wolf Pack” may reveal why the wolf poses a larger threat to Everett and Blake’s lives. His parents visited Everett in the hospital and realized he was exaggerating his injury. When his parents looked at his shoulder, the scar was hardly noticeable, but Everett saw that it was getting worse and extending across his shoulder.
Meanwhile, as Blake went into a motel restroom, she looked in the mirror and was stunned to see Everett staring at her from his hospital bed. They were both fixated on one another. Blake made a choice to leave the motel, something her father didn’t support. He asked them to stay at their mother’s, indicating that the couple was estranged. But Blake didn’t listen to him and went back to her home. When she arrived at her house, which had caught fire and been ruined, she spotted Everett waiting for her. Blake and Everett had both been bitten by wolves, making them vulnerable to serious danger. Everett wanted to talk to Blake about this, but as there were no other means of contacting her, Everett had to show up at her house. When they walked inside Blake’s house, Everett noticed that Blake’s acne was gone. Even when Everett took off his shirt, he found he had grown abs within hours. Their bodily changes seemed supernatural to them, but Blake preferred not to pay attention to them. But just then, a huge werewolf materialized and emerged, rampaging at them. The neighborhood dog pounced on the werewolf, but it was only a temporary measure of defense because the werewolf was larger in size. It pursued Blake and Everett and attempted to kill them, but Everett discovered his tremendous power and used it to smash the wooden decks to go outside.
Blake and Everett left the area in a hurry. When they came to a stop close to the bridge, Everett advised Blake to calm herself by taking deep breaths and practicing sticking her tongue out. Everett could comprehend the situation well even though getting bitten by a wolf and having these supernatural changes weren’t something usual, but Blake chose to dismiss all of these warning signs and thought they had no significance. She sprinted to get to the motel while Everett received a call from an arson investigator. The forest fire hadn’t been a natural disaster; rather, it was an intentional act. She implied that the arsonist might be a schoolmate of Everett’s. The officer, therefore, needed Everett’s assistance for further investigation. Everett was perplexed to learn that a student from his school had started the fire, but what may have been his motivation? Was he a werewolf, too?
Who Were The Twins? What Happened To Blake And Everett?
At night, one of the twins, Harlan, was introduced to us. While his sister Luna fretted about her father, Harlan was having fun at the club. Harlan and the DJ were having a romantic moment when Luna intervened. Luna informed Harlan that their father, Garrett, had gone missing, but Harlan assured her that he would come back home. Their conversation led to Harlan admitting that Garrett wasn’t even their real father. The lycan nature of the twins became clear. Luna had the capacity to smell the minutest scent, while Harlan had the gift of superhuman hearing. Luna urged her brother to look for their father since his truck had been found, but he hadn’t been there. Luna and Harlan arrived close to the forest, where they discovered that a werewolf had scratched up Garrett’s truck.
Garrett was a forest ranger who was stuck in the woods and was unable to leave because of the roaring fire. He was seen in the forest, recording his farewell words to his children on his recorder since he believed his time was running out. It was discovered that, much like the present situation, the woods had caught fire the day Garrett had rescued the twins. Garrett raised the twins after accepting them the way they were. While Luna adored him, Harlan was adamant about not accepting him as his father. Garrett was still hoping to succeed since thinking of his children gave him the will to keep on trying. Meanwhile, Harlan and Luna realized that their real father was looking for them and had come to this town after the fire. But after a while, when Luna and Harlan were returning home, and Everett and Blake were parting ways, all four of them received some sort of signal that compelled them to band together. They noticed that their eyes were going yellow, prompting the twins to realize that Blake and Everett had been transformed into werewolves. Everett thought it was exciting, but Blake didn’t appear to like the idea.
Who might have caused the fire in the woods has now become an important question in the plot. Was there a main antagonist concealed beneath the scenarios which might have a reason for calling the werewolf who had come in search of his children? Despite everything, the series has a strong focus on mental health concerns and how they are frequently ignored from an early age owing to parents’ ignorance. We saw the strained relationship between the children and their parents in “Wolf Pack,” which may become a topic to tackle as the story goes on. Let’s suppose that, like “Wolf Pack” Episode 1, the next episodes will likewise have thrilling twists and a carefully developed storyline. By far, Episode 1 did a good job, and we anticipate that the subsequent episodes will do the same.
