Many ships have crashed and burned throughout four seasons of “Teen Wolf,” but one that has remained steady is the ultimate bro-ship of Scott (Tyler Posey) and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien). Now it is going to be tested like never before in Season 5.Their unwavering loyalty to each other broke hearts with episodes like “Motel California” when Stiles had to talk Scott out of killing himself. Then again in Season 3 when Stiles was diagnosed with the same teenage dementia his mother had and Scott promised, “If you have it, we’ll do something. I’ll do something.”When it turned out Stiles didn’t have dementia but was instead inhabited by an evil Japanese “jokester” spirit, Scott didn’t rest until he found a way to save his friend.No matter what horror has landed in Beacon Hills, the best friends are always there for each other. In Season 5, they’ll be challenged by even more frightening beasts and the challenge of staying together once they graduate“Stiles says that his dad has friends from high school that he never talks to anymore so Stiles worries that Scott and he will drift apart one day,” Posey explains to Zap2it during a “Teen Wolf” set visit. “He wants to maintain their friendship and live close to each other. Scott wants the same. He loves his buddy. They’ve been through everything together.”However, as the first trailer for Season 5 shows, things aren’t going that smoothly for the guys. The stress of the new evil force in town clearly wears on their friendship.“They get pulled apart a little bit. They have a blowout, which is going to be really fun to play,” Posey says. “We have toyed with Scott and Stiles getting mad at each other but this is different. There may be some tears coming from some upset fans.”
Stiles isn’t the only one pulling away from Scott. This season will test all of his relationships and Scott may have to figure out everyone without the power of his pack.“He has a lot of love for Stiles and Kira [Arden Cho]. Those are his rocks, but they are being pulled away from him right now,” Posey says. “We haven’t really played with Scott losing his mind. He always knows what’s happening and what step to take next. He doesn’t know why his friends are being pulled away from him and he’s at a loss — which is new for him.”Find out if Scott can put things back together — and more importantly what’s pulling everyone apart — when “Teen Wolf” Season 5 premieres Monday, June 29 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
