This week’s “Teen Wolf” Season 2 finale was an unrelenting, action-packed episode — almost every character experienced a dramatic change of direction, whether it was in terms of their alliances, their love lives, their enemies, or their actual identity. If you’re like us, you probably had plenty of questions by the time the episode ended. Luckily, showrunner Jeff Davis has got all the answers as to what to expect from Season 3.
3. Don’t expect to see Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) totally get over Lydia (Holland Roden) now that she’s professed her epic, Kanima-curse-breaking love for Jackson. “He might have to step back a little and be a bit more of an observer, but things move very fast in the world of ‘Teen Wolf,’ so we’ll see,” Davis tells us. Those powerful moments between Stiles and Lydia will have lasting impact. In fact, the writers had originally intended for Erica to be Stiles’ new love interest, but they course-corrected in favor of more Stiles/Lydia moments this season.
“We felt it out in terms of the story. We knew that we wanted the scene at the end of 11 where Stiles is on the field and Lydia is finally the one cheering for him,” Davis tells us. “It felt like that was a better moment to build to than the possibility of Stiles and Erica. You start to see which actors have the best chemistry with each other, and we felt like Gage had more chemistry with other characters, including Sinqua, actually, so to see them holding hands in one of the last episodes felt more right to me.”
We can’t give away too many spoilers, but we did grill Davis for every bit of information we could possibly squeeze out of him. He’s almost finished breaking the story for the third season and will get together with his writing team very soon to begin work on the show. Season 3 isn’t set to premiere until 2013, but hopefully these 10 tidbits will help tide you over until you can dig into the real thing.
