Teen Wolf Boss Teases Upcoming Reveals and "Bloody" Deaths! Plus, Is Stiles Getting a Love Interest?
Sorry, So You Think You Can Dance! Peace, Prettly Little Liars!
Sure, those shows are still some of our favorite summer guilty pleasures, but we here at Team WWK are obsessed with Teen Wolf, MTV's hit series that is totally killing it in its sophomore season. (No slump here, thank you very much!)
With a new mythological creature on the loose (what up, Kanima?!), we chatted with creator Jeff Davis about what fans can expect from the rest of this season, including romance updates, deathwatch and more!While season one built toward the big reveal of the Alpha in the finale, the identity of the Kanima will be unmasked tonight. (Davis also teases that hard-core fans "definitely won't want to miss [episode] nine.") Still, fans should expect "a big climax" at the end of season two. "Without giving anything away, episode 12 is titled ‘Master Plan,' so that should give fans a hint that all of the characters and their stories are definitely going to come crashing into each other," he says.
As for the two deaths set to rock Beacon Hills, Davis tells us, "Not everyone survives this season, that much I can say. Whether it's one of our young six series regulars will have to remain a mystery. What I can say is that just as we started the season off bloody, we end it bloody. Very bloody."
One character fans may want to start worrying about? HAIC (Head Alpha in Charge, duh!) Derek (Tyler Hoechlin), whose current cockiness will "most definitely" come back to bite (pun fully intended!) him in the you-know-what. "When we sat down to talk about where Derek's character was headed this season, we talked about Greek heroes and how they had to temper their own egos. Viewers will see Derek eventually turning for help to the most unlikely of characters by the end of the season," Davis says.There is also one relationship that may not survive season two: Scott (Tyler Posey) and Allison's (Crystal Reed) Romeo and Juliet-esque romance, which Davis says will be tested. "Staying together in the midst of werewolves, hunters and lizardlike creatures may prove to be impossible for Scott and Allison. Especially when she's trying to help her father and he's trying to protect the people who don't have the power to protect themselves."
As for fan favorite Stiles (Dylan O'Brien), whom Davis once told us would never play lacrosse, turn into a werewolf or kiss anyone during the series? Well, things are about to change for Scott's BFF. "One of those rules is broken in episode 11," Davis teases.
And yes, he confirms what we reported last week: Some of the wolves are heading to a gay bar! "The opening of episode six does indeed take place in and around a gay club involving several of the main characters. It's almost nonstop action with a big Derek-Kanima fight sequence," Davis explains. "It's something you don't see often in shows like ours. I think it turned out quite well. Let's just say this episode nearly broke our special effects budget, which isn't very big to begin with!"
Teen Wolf has a large online fanbase, thanks to sites like Twitter and Tumblr, and fans of the show (and certain couples) aren't shy about making their opinions known to Davis (he is aware that you all want "Sterek" to happen). Still, he is sure not to let the reactions lead the show's narrative.
"I try to stay on top of what fans are talking about, what they're reacting to on Twitter, Tumblr and message boards. I listen, but I don't necessarily react. One thing that upsets or frustrates a fan in episode four may actually have a big and very satisfying payoff in episode 10," he explains. "The only way I really know how to write is to first please myself as a viewer. Every time I've been able to do that as a storyteller, it's seemed to work out well."
Teen Wolf airs tonight at 10 p.m. on MTV.
When I saw Crystal Reed on the red carpet at the Paley Center for Media in her sparkling silver dress, it was all I could do to remain professional. Then when she met me she complimented my eyes. So after I got over swooning I tried to interview her about “Teen Wolf” season two and the DVD of season one.
CraveOnline: Is Allison on the hunt this year?
Crystal Reed: She’s on the hunt. She’s on the hunt at the beginning of the season for this creature. She’s trying to help Stiles and Scott find it. It’s cool because they have this threesome dynamic. It reminds me of Harry Potter, and then towards the end of this season she’s on the hunt for a lot more. Something really bad happens to her family and she pulls a complete 180. It’s really interesting.
CraveOnline: Does that involve a lot more action for you?
Crystal Reed: Yeah. It involves a lot of action. She’s been learning the tricks of the trade from her dad. He’s been teaching her and training her and she gets to put them to good use. I got to do my own stunts which I’m really, really grateful for. I think there’s something to be said for being physical in acting. I got to use a few new weapons. I had this incredible stunt coordinator who is really kind and was patient with us. It’s really interesting.
CraveOnline: What are some of the cool weapons?
Crystal Reed: I got to use a knife, a dagger, a bow and a gun. It’s so cool.
CraveOnline: It sounds like a lot of monster activity. Is there any time for high school?
Crystal Reed: Yeah, there’s not a lot of time for high school. I think maybe in the middle of the episodes, Scott’s failing his classes and Allison’s like, “I’ll take care of this. Go study” because you sort of forget about everything else going on. Classmates are dying and your friends are dying. Yeah, we don’t see a lot of high school studying this year.
CraveOnline: Is there any new romantic interest or complications?
Crystal Reed: Yeah, we have four new cast mates who I’m thrilled [about.] They’re so incredible and really, really talents and they bring a whole other thing to our show. Scott has a new love interest as well. Somebody’s interested in Scott and somebody’s interested in Allison so it’s fun.
CraveOnline: How does it feel to be doing a season two of a show?
Crystal Reed: It feels great. It was all so massive for me because I went from serving sushi and eating ramen noodles to booking a pilot and skip to here. So it’s great to be here, especially in this place because so many cool things have happened and iconic moments. I’m really grateful.
CraveOnline: Did you get to do commentary on the DVD?
Crystal Reed: I didn’t. I was working on another film so Dylan [O’Brien] plays my voice I think. He’s so funny and talented. I hope he did me justice.
Holland Roden picks up a few goodies while out at The Grove in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (June 9).
The Teen Wolf starlet stopped by Crate & Barrel for some home necessities and Anthropologie.
Holland recently chatted with SheKnows.com about her style versus Lydia’s.
“She goes for a more matchy pageant look and far too sexualized of a look than I would ever be comfortable in,” Holland dished on Lydia. “[I like] great fabric and structure. I like a classically timeless look — before Ms. Bloomer
