TVOM: "The first couple of minutes of this episode may have been one of the best openings for an episode ever. Something that Teen Wolf does a great job with is give their viewers’ great exposition of what the plot of the season is and what has been going on so far. Season 1 will always have a special place in my heart and “I.E.D.” had a lot of similar moments to some of the first season’s first couple of episodes. It’s incredibly cool to see Scott being the mentor figure to Liam, who is increasingly getting more and more interesting as the season progresses. “I.E.D.” also explored more of Liam’s background and his anger issues from his old school, which was quite interesting to follow."
