'Teen Wolf' Creator Teases 'Bloody' Finale
It took me a hot minute, but I finally got my jaw off the floor after last night's beyond amazing episode of Teen Wolf. With only two episodes left it's no surprise the revelations are flying fast and furious, but you have to be marveled by the sheer volume of reveals worked into A Greater Conflict!
Alison not only embraced her hunter lineage and proved to be a worthy(ish) adversary for The Kanima, but Matt lost his scaly soldier (not to mention his life) when Grandpa Gerard drowned him, becoming the new Kani-master! Oh, and Scott's heart broke twice -- first when mom discovered his big secret, and later when it became clear how greatly Alison has already changed following the death of her mother.
Suffice it to say, things are only going to get worse before they get better in Beacon Hills -- which, of course, means the inverse for Teen Wolf itself.
In anticipation of next week's penultimate episode, creator Jeff Davis spoke with Collider.com and offered up a few finale teases and hinted at what's to come in season three!
There Will Be Death
To maintain the reality of the world, Jeff says people have to die. "In a genre show you can kill people off -- and you have to. You have to keep fans on their toes. We definitely want to bring in new blood, [but at the same time], you don't want to piss off the fans that want to see the regulars. It's a balance I try to maintain."
There Will Be Blood
The bodies will hit the floor in a big way over the next two weeks as Jeff says "it's definitely going to get bloody," which inevitably leads to big changes. "The end of season two introduces the new big bad of season three," he said before adding that keen-eyed viewers should already know where the show is going because they've been hinting at it all season long!
There Will Be More
MTV has already greenlit a bigger season three (22 episodes!), and Jeff is hard at work cracking the story with his team as we speak. "I follow Joss Whedon’s paradigm of The Big Bad, so I always start with what's going to be the big mystery of the season [and] who is going to be the new Big Bad," he says. As for how long Teen Wolf can run given its age-specific title, Jeff reminds everyone that the show is technically still taking place in 2011 and the characters are still in their sophomore year. While season three will take place during the kid's junior year, Jeff laughs, "I can stretch it out for a few seasons in high school -- maybe it will become 20-Something Wolf."
Teen Wolf airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on MTV.
