Teen Wolf Online

Here we are… More than six years after Teen Wolf’s series premiere. Teen Wolf’s series premiere was on June 5th, 2011 and this website launched on the 14th of July that same year.
I am very, very proud of how far Teen Wolf has come and with that I’m also very proud of Teen Wolf Online, a website – a fansite that I’ve been maintaining on my own all these years.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank every single cast and crew member, but most importantly, I’d like to thank Jeff Davis, the executive producer for creating this series.
Jeff has created relationships, friendships that last for an entire lifetime. This series has the most brilliant cast, and I can not think of anyone to be able to portray each character.
From Scott McCall to the Nogitsune, from the Nogitsune to the Anuk-Ite and everything before, in between and after that… It was brilliant, it was perfect.

Here are a few ‘thank you’s’ I want to hand out, just a few of my personal favorites;

Orny Adams as the Coach: Brilliant, funny, sassy even. Orny portrayed a character who brought a lot of light to the series.
Stephen Lunsford as Matt (Season 2): I’m still sad that his character didn’t make it through the entire series. The whole scene between him and Dylan was perfect.

Melissa Ponzio as Melissa McCall: I need a mom like her. I will never forget to be my own anchor.

Dylan O’Brien as (Void) Stiles: Ha… What’s there to say about Dylan that the world doesn’t already know? Teen Wolf was his first acting job. I instantly felt the connected between Dylan and Tyler, but what did it for me was Season 3B. Void Stiles. “YOU CAN’T KILL ME!”

Linden Ashby as Sheriff Stillinski: The first time I saw Linden on screen was years ago: Mortal Kombat. So he already had me there. Linden portrayed the role of a protective, loving, badass father perfectly. Again, it was a perfect score for the cast. The scenes he had with Dylan were all beautiful.

JR Bourne as Chris Argent: To be honest… I didn’t like Argent at all at first. I’m so glad he switched teams and joined Scott to hunt his own family. Argent had lost EVERYTHING; his wife, his daughter – even his father, but I’ll get to that in a minute. JR was amazing, especially this last season. Loved to see him work with Scott.

Michael Hogan as Gerard Argent: Do I really need to say anything about Michael? There were times I could literally kick his ass. He was brilliant as Gerard and the best villain the show has had. Period. The way he says “mountain ash”……

Thank you. Every single one of you, thank you. I will forever hold Teen Wolf dear to my heart.

And even though the series has ended, Teen Wolf Online will NOT end. I’ll keep tabs on the cast and crew of the series. Dylan O’Brien can currently be seen in “American Assassin” and will be seen in “The Maze Runner: The Death Cure” in 2018 while both Tyler Posey and Andrew Matarazzo can be seen in The CW’s Jane the Virgin’s fourth season. Colton Haynes might return as Roy Harper for The CW’s Arrow sixth season and JR Bourne can be seen in ABC’s “Somewhere Between”.

So, as I’ve mentioned… Teen Wolf Online will stick around for everything related to the cast and crew and of course the Teen Wolf podcast, The Hollywood Reporter published in July earlier this year;

“These characters and these stories have hit a peak,” MTV president Chris McCarthy tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We are talking with Jeff about how do we actually keep that franchise alive. And the beauty of the evolution of media is you can see the series going on through a series of podcasts and then see a resurrection of a new class in a couple years.”

So sit back, relax… And enjoy this new ride with us!

Regards,



This article contains spoilers. Don’t read this if you haven’t watched the series finale of Teen Wolf.

“I thought about what kind of series finale fits this show best, and to me, it was, ‘And the adventure continues …,’ ” ‘Teen Wolf’ creator and showrunner Jeff Davis tells The Hollywood Reporter;

Sunday’s Teen Wolf series finale on MTV felt less like an ending and more like the beginning of a new chapter for Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and his pack of friends.

After a season of fighting Gerard Argent (Michael Hogan) and Tamora Monroe’s (Sibongile Mlambo) reign of fear against the supernatural in Beacon Hills, Scott, Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Lydia (Holland Roden), Derek (Tyler Hoechlin), Malia (Shelley Hennig), Chris Argent (JR Bourne), Sheriff Noah Stilinski (Linden Ashby), Jackson (Colton Haynes), Ethan (Charlie Carver) and Peter Hale (Ian Bohen) won the battle for their town. Unfortunately, the war continued, as Monroe escaped alive to expand her agenda on a global scale.

The 100th and final episode of MTV’s supernatural drama, while dealing mostly with the fight against the Anuk-Ite fear monster and saving Beacon Hills from all-out war, was bookended by scenes of Scott and Argent saving a young werewolf named Alec (Benjamin Wadsworth), a new character on the run from Monroe’s hunters. Scott and Argent helped him get to safety and invited him to join the Beacon Hills pack to fight the thousands of new hunters that Monroe enlisted in her war to kill every single supernatural being. Instead of offering a satisfying conclusion to the story, Teen Wolf ended on a hopeful shot of Scott’s pack welcoming Alec into their group.

Series creator and showrunner Jeff Davis spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about bringing MTV’s first scripted drama to an end after six seasons, the surprising influences he used to write the finale, his disappointment over who he couldn’t get to come back for the final episode and more.

Has it hit you that the series has come to an end?
It’s a very strange thing. I’ve never written a series finale before. I’ve never said goodbye to a project like this. I’ve never had anything in my work life like this. It’s hard to say goodbye, but [I’m] also getting ready for new challenges.

In writing your first series finale, what was the most important goal you needed to accomplish?
It was really to both pay homage to the series itself with clever callbacks and big moments for each character. But the most important thing was to tell a good Teen Wolf story, to make it a great Teen Wolf episode with action, with humor, with romance and to give each character their heroic moment. There was a scene when we watched it all together [at the cast and crew finale screening] that everybody cheered, a great scene with Sheriff Stilinski.

While a lot of the episode felt very final with the relationships between the characters, why did you want to leave the story open-ended?
I thought a lot about other series finales and certain ones that leave the audience gasping, wondering what happens next, like The Sopranos, or some where they send the whole cast to jail, like Seinfeld, and others, like Lost, where everybody is dead and they find each other in the afterlife. I thought about what kind of series finale fits this show best, and to me, it was, “And the adventure continues …” That’s what we wanted to go for. I want to know that Scott and his friends have many more stories to tell. This story isn’t over. He goes off and fights many more battles, makes new friends, faces down new enemies. That felt right for the finale. And I was also able to get people like Tyler Hoechlin and Dylan O’Brien in that last shot as part of Scott’s pack from day one onward. It’s a testament to the show and how many people loved working on the show that everybody came back.

You introduced a new character, Alec, in the finale. With a new incarnation of Teen Wolf in development, first as a podcast before being rebooted altogether, does he have anything to do with those plans?
It’s all just been talks so far. That character, that whole idea that bookends [the episode], that was something I came up with a long time ago. Tyler Posey actually pitched me, “I have an idea for the finale that I wake up in a motel room, and it’s a year or two later, and it’s me and Argent.” I was like, “I love that idea.” And we did that. But that character [of Alec], to me, represents the audience. There was no real thought of introducing a character to reboot the show. It was simply this kid, Alec, played by Ben Wadsworth, who is this outsider, a kid on the run, on his own, and Scott says to him, “If you feel like an outsider, if you feel alone, you can be one of us. You can be with us.” That’s the message of the show and the big message of this season, which was about fear, being a pariah.

Why did you want to continue the Teen Wolf brand immediately after the final season, instead of waiting a few years?
Part of that was [MTV president] Chris McCarthy’s idea. He has a real love for the show. The previous regime wanted to sweep everything out and start fresh, but Chris wants to keep a good thing going. I’m hopefully going to be working with them on other projects. We have [a female-driven] War of the Worlds as a possibility, and we just handed the script in for that, so things could be good with me and MTV for a little while longer.

What kinds of stories do you want to continue from Teen Wolf, and why in podcast form?
I think there’s plenty of spinoff ideas. I would love to see Jackson and Ethan in London as a podcast. (Laughs.) Have one eight-episode, maybe, podcast about an adventure they go through there. I could see any sort of spinoff within that world. If Hoechlin would be up for it, [I want to] follow [Derek in a podcast]. You know who would actually be great at it would be Daniel Sharman. If I could convince Daniel Sharman to reprise Isaac, because Daniel has done audiobook recordings, I bet he would be great at a podcast. And podcasts are amazing these days. I just listened to S-Town a little while ago, and it was riveting. I couldn’t step out of my car because I had to finish it. So it’s really fascinating to me how this very old-school storytelling device has come back in vogue. It’s basically radio drama coming back to life.

There were so many amazing character returns in the finale, especially when the Anuk-Ite started taking on forms of Scott’s biggest fears, like Void Stiles. Which character return was the hardest to pull off?
Hardest to pull off in terms of narrative, none of them. They all seemed to fit seamlessly back into the show. The hardest to pull off in terms of scheduling was definitely Dylan O’Brien. But he made it work, to his credit. He loves the role, and he said, “I want to be part of the finale. I want to be part of the last season. I’ll make it work.” The difficulty was, I actually had to write most of episode 20, the finale, before the scripts for episode 18 and 19 were even finished. (Laughs.) That’s a challenge when you have one week with this actor before he flies off to do his movie.

With Dylan’s limited availability, were there any plans to have Stiles and Derek’s FBI hunt storyline expanded that you couldn’t carry out?
I would have loved to have them both for more episodes, yeah. Hoechlin was great, and it was really nice to get Hoechlin in two episodes. When you don’t have them locked down and you don’t own their time, their schedules get crazy. My first and second ADs tear their hair out trying to get everyone to show up on set at the same time. And one actor I wish I could have had for another episode was Colton. In episode 19, he couldn’t be in it. So we were only able to show Charlie Carver. I would have loved to have [Jackson and Ethan] together in that episode, too. Unfortunately, in the narrative, we had to split them up, but Colton was very busy working for Ryan Murphy. (Laughs.) I’m very happy for him.

Were there any character returns you wanted for the finale but couldn’t get?
My biggest disappointment is, there were two people, and it was both a problem of scheduling. I would have loved to have Meagan Tandy as Braeden, and I would have loved to have Seth Gilliam as Deaton. I had actually started writing a whole plotline for Seth in the finale, and then we just couldn’t get him because of his schedule with Walking Dead.

Are you able to reveal what his finale storyline would have been, if he could have shot it?
I would have wanted him to be a part of the figuring it out of it all and to give him a heroic moment, as well. Honestly, most important in the last episode was that Scott had a big story, that we bring it around back to the teen wolf. It’s OK that we didn’t have certain other characters because it started with Tyler Posey, and I love the fact that it ends with him.

There were several callbacks to the pilot and big moments throughout the series. What line or callback meant the most to you?
I loved when Gerard says, “Mountain ash,” which is a callback to his screaming the words “mountain ash” in the finale of season two. I said to the director, Russell Mulcahy, “This time I want him to just whisper it.” That was really fun and just like that finale of season two. Those little clever callbacks were so fun to do.

Lydia and Stiles each had fun reactions to finding out about Jackson and Ethan. What was important to you in getting that moment right?
It was hitting the humor of it, and it was also having [Jackson’s ex] Lydia know. Having her thinking to herself, “This kid will be so much better when he figures it all out.” And a little bit of it was, it’s really nice to see Colton having come out in his real life and having it change him so much and become a different, better person. That scene was one of the easiest to write because I knew how I wanted to make people laugh.

In the final act of the finale, Kate (Jill Wagner), who was shot with fatal yellow wolfsbane, attacked Gerard after Argent left the room, but they both have survived so many near-death experiences before. Since their deaths weren’t explicitly shown onscreen, what are their official fates by the end of the series?
(Laughs.) Who knows? Those two always have a way of coming back to life, don’t they? I’ll leave that question unanswered.

Fair enough. Was this the series ending you always had in mind back when the show first premiered, or has it changed over the course of 100 episodes?
It’s definitely changed. I had this idea of Scott meeting this young werewolf back in season four. But to be honest, when we were doing season five, I thought 5:20 was going to be the last episode until the network came and said, “We want 20 more.” So I’m glad we got to do it this way. This felt like a big goodbye and an epic story. I like the fact that it became worldwide as well. I’m really glad to have had the opportunity to finish off the series with that foreknowledge and to prepare for it. And I’m really happy that all these actors wanted to come back to roles that they hadn’t played for a while.



Like so many finales before it, Sunday’s series-ending episode of Teen Wolf left us with more questions than answers, TV Line pusblished;

But while showrunner Jeff Davis intentionally wrapped the series finale on an open-ended note, I was in the mood for a little closure. So I got him on the line to answer some of my lingering inquiries from the MTV drama’s final hour:

TVLINE | First things first: I can’t believe you let Monroe live!
I liked the idea of a constant threat being out there. I liked the flash-forward where you see she’s really taken up the mantle worldwide. It was a way of broadening the scope of the story.

TVLINE | I have to admit, I expected Coach to be like, “I’ve known all along.” Were you tempted to do that?
No, not at all. I think Coach accepts certain strangeness in the world and deals with it one thing at a time. He doesn’t like to get too involved. He doesn’t want to know. I mean, there’s a question as to whether Greenberg is a figure of his imagination.

TVLINE | There were so many relationships to honor, Stiles and Lydia being one of them. Was it difficult writing those scenes? Expectations were high.
There are definitely certain things the fans want to see, so it was very difficult, yes.

TVLINE | I loved all of the Stiles-Derek scenes.
Those were fun to write. It was fun to get back to their chemistry, their love-hate relationship.

TVLINE | Now that’s been a minute, what do you think about the “Sterek” phenomenon?
When I hear the word “Sterek,” I think of the most passionate part of Teen Wolf, and definitely the angriest — most of that anger being targeted towards me. All I can say is that I did the story I wanted to do, and I’m happy that “Sterek” exists in the universe so that people can go off and write their own stories.

TVLINE | I liked seeing all of the old enemies back for Scott’s fight with the Anuk-Ite. Were those just laying around?
As I was writing the episode, I was like, “We still have the Oni costume, right? And the Berserker?” The real villain of 6B is human fear, and the Anuk-Ite just brought that out. This was a way of bringing out all of Scott’s fears, his past enemies. What he’s basically saying to the Anuk-Ite is, “I’ve conquered all of these fears. You can’t beat me.” He has nothing left to fear, except losing his friends. It was a way to tip our hat to all of the villains we’ve created; I’m proud of the comic-book aesthetic we have here.

TVLINE | The Anuk-Ite also seemed to strike a nerve with Scott when it mentioned Allison. If she had lived, do you think she and Scott would have found their way back to each another?
I don’t know, that’s a good question. I can say that she was his first love. There was a time when all I could imagine was Scott and Allison together. There was also a time I couldn’t imagine the show going past 50 episodes. [Laughs] But if Allison and Scott hadn’t ended, we wouldn’t have had that really funny, romantic story with Kira, which I loved. I also really like the way Malia and Scott’s romance has developed, as well as the message it sends to the audience, which is that you do love more than once in your life. Your first love doesn’t have to be your only love.

TVLINE | Speaking of love, how exactly did Malia’s kiss heal Scott’s eyes?
Scott says, “I’m trying, I can’t focus.” Lydia knows that Scott needs to calm his heartbeat, let the adrenaline go and focus on healing. The moment she was able to calm someone was with a kiss; she’s remembering the kiss that stopped Stiles’ panic attack the first time they kissed. That’s all Malia’s doing, helping him focus.

TVLINE | OK, so it wasn’t like a Snow White situation.
[Laughs] No, it wasn’t a magic kiss. It was just Malia helping him focus.

TVLINE | We never got to find out how Stiles felt about Scott dating Malia.
In our world, I believe that the characters are happy when their friends and family find love. F–k the bro code. Stiles was with Lydia, and Malia and Scott were both single. Wouldn’t you rather your best friend end up with someone you love?

TVLINE | If you say so.
To be honest, it comes from my experience as a gay man. Our community is so small, you can’t tell your exes that they can’t date your friends. Who the hell else are they going to date?

TVLINE | I noticed there wasn’t a “Where Are They Now?” element to the finale.
I hate that.

TVLINE | So help me fill in the blanks. Did these kids end up going to college?
Oh, yes, I’d imagine so. But I’m sure one or two of them had to put it off. Like, I imagine Scott doing night classes or online classes while trying to save the world at the same time. … Or they skip college, because college is overrated.

TVLINE | Another important question: Stiles’ dad and Lydia’s mom — still together?
[Laughs] I don’t know, maybe that will be answered someday.

TVLINE | And is Kira still off with the Skinwalkers?
No, I imagine Kira is off involved in some phenomenal adventure of her own, having mastered her skills.

TVLINE | Anyone else you wish you’d gotten back for the finale? Danny?
You know, there were so many characters we wanted to bring back. We had a whole list. Danny was on it, Braeden was on it. We couldn’t schedule Seth Gilliam for the finale; I had a whole plot line for him. The finale would have been an hour and a half long. We were running out of money and running out of time. I wanted Isaac to come back. Like I wanted him to show up with a two-second cameo at the end being like, “Did I miss it?”

Meagan Tandy took to Instagram to share her love for Teen Wolf. Fun fact: She was meant to play “The Girl” for just one (!) episode;

Farewell Teen Wolf. Farewell Braeden. It has been an absolute pleasure to be Beacon Hills resident Mercenary . It's no secret I loved portraying this character. I don't care how cheesy I may have been, how "extra" I was, I worked very hard for this opportunity and I am proud 😭. In 2012, after Jane By Design, I auditioned for Teen Wolf.  I auditioned for a completely different role, a recurring role, a villain. I didn't book the job-essentially got "1st Runner up" and I was DEVASTED. The next day Teen Wolf called and offered me a role which was only meant for one episode . Just one . And the character wouldn't even have a name.  I would be called "The Girl". It wasn't what I auditioned for or wanted but I wanted to get more experience so I said "Sure. Let's do it ." I walked on that set, kicked a**, and one episode turned into 5 seasons by the grace of God 🙏🏽🙌🏽 and my original character name, "The Girl", was gone. Jeff Davis (the creator) told me I would come back the following season and my character name would be "Braeden" 😭💪🏽👊🏾🏍. Never give up on your dreams guys. Ever.  When one door closes , there will be an even bigger door that's about to open. Stay focused on what it is you want to do. Let there be no excuse to go out there and get it 💪🏽 I will forever love having portrayed this character . And I will never forget this experience and opportunity.  Thank you so much to Jeff Davis and MTV for the opportunity .  And thank you to the fandom who I enjoy engaging with often and for all of your support. Sending so much love ✌🏽💙

Spoiler alert: This post contains plot details from the series finale of Teen Wolf.

In Teen Wolf‘s final hour (and change), Scott and his pack defeated Gerard and Monroe’s army. But even though they won the battle for Beacon Hills, the war had only just begun, which is why the series ended with Scott and company heading out to recruit more soldiers and continue on to the next battle.

EW spoke with Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis about the finale, its many callbacks, and whether he ever considered killing any main characters.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was the inspiration behind the idea to bring in a new werewolf in the finale?
JEFF DAVIS:
That was an idea I had a while ago, back around the fourth season actually. I’d always thought it would be interesting to see Scott out in the world somewhere meeting this new young kid who’s frightened and alone and basically speaking the words to him that I want the show to say to every audience member, which is if you feel like an outsider, if you feel alone, you don’t have to be. You’ll find your pack and you can be one of us. So the character of Alec, he represents our audience and the message of the show.

So is Gerard dead?
You can never tell with Gerard. He always seems to pop back up, doesn’t he?

All major characters survived for the most part. Did you ever think about killing a main character?
There was a time when I was thinking: Who do we kill, how do we make this momentous? And then you have to think: Is this a show where the series finale should have half the cast die off and blow up the show at the end? I thought to myself, I don’t want to see most of these people die, I want to see them off together again on another adventure. Even watching them walk toward us at the end, there were people I missed. There were people I would’ve liked to see with them, including Allison. I don’t think it would’ve been our show if we’d killed off half the characters. There was a moment I told Cody Christian we were going to kill his character off, and by the time we got to around episode 16 or 17, I said to him, “I can’t kill you.” [Laughs] I think he was hoping for an epic death scene.

In terms of the Allison references, was that an obvious choice to make her a part of this?
Yes, it was. It was absolutely necessary because she was such a momentous character in the lives of the other characters, Lydia and Scott mostly, and Argent of course. But we want to pay homage to it and a lot of a series finale is tipping your hat and giving a nod to the previous seasons.

Which you did in a huge way in that library scene…
[Laughs] Yes, yes we did. And that was one of the ideas behind it. I think it works because it’s organic, it all comes out of this creature of fear that brings out these things in you, that gets in your head. It was a way to have Scott face all of his fears in one final moment and tell this creature: You can’t beat me; I’ve conquered all these fears.

I was so excited to see Void Stiles again!
Yes! That was really fun and Dylan O’Brien was really happy to play him. I remember being on set and saying to him, “You get to play Void Stiles again,” and he was really happy about it. It’s a way of saying goodbye to these characters.

Was it the same person playing the Nogitsune?
Yep, Aaron Hendry, who also played a character called Brunski, the one who tries to kill Lydia in Eichen House. He is a phenomenal actor. And that’s his voice, by the way. That’s all him.

The moment where Theo took Gabe’s pain. Is that a step on the path to redemption for him?
Yeah, he’s on his way to redemption. He’s got a lot to pay for, murder being one of them. But when we were talking about Mason and Theo in the tunnels I remember saying, “There’s got to be a bigger moment here for Theo.” We’ve seen him trying to be a good guy. He tries to take Mason’s pain and Mason says to him, “It doesn’t work if you don’t care, you have to care.” In that moment, he cares, even for his enemy. He sees a corrupted person just like him dying.

Was the Malia-Scott kiss a purposeful callback to Stiles and Lydia’s first kiss when she helped him focus during a panic attack?
That’s entirely on purpose, that’s why Lydia says “kiss him.” She looks at Stiles and remembers [that] this is how I got Stiles to focus. It’s no magic kiss, it’s purely getting the person to concentrate on something else. It’s those little callbacks, that and Gerard whispering “mountain ash,” that makes it fun for a series finale.

Can we assume that Stiles knew about Malia and Scott? I was waiting to see if he’d react.
I think in the world of Teen Wolf, we don’t like to do love triangles and jealousy and all that. I think he’s happy that they found each other. Stiles is with Lydia now; they’re together and if Scott and Malia are right for each other, I think Stiles would be more than happy for them.

How long have you known you wanted to bring back that season 4 line to end the series?
When we came up with that line [in season 4], I pitched the writers. I said, “The last scene of the show could be Scott finding another werewolf and saying those same words: ‘You’re not a monster. You’re a werewolf, like me.’” I love Posey’s delivery of the line. It was just perfect. That’s partially the message of the show: You’re something special. You’re not what those other people tell you you are, you’re something special and you can be with us.

This finale did feel different than most Teen Wolf finales. It was almost less conclusive…
That was very specific. We didn’t want a finale that said “the end.” We wanted it to be an “and the adventure continues…” I like imagining that they’re going off to continue the fight. I didn’t want to see an end where they all have children and they’re happy and at home. That felt anticlimactic to me.

I know you had an extended finale, but was there anything you had to cut or couldn’t work in?
There were a few things. There were a couple actors that I would’ve loved to have back, like Daniel Sharman as Isaac. I would’ve liked to have Meagan Tandy’s Braeden. I had been planning a whole plot line for Deaton, but the episode was getting too long and there was too much difficulty with his schedule, with getting him back from The Walking Dead. That’s one of my regrets. There are definitely things we couldn’t fit in. I would’ve loved to have a 90-minute finale but we got 50 minutes, which is pretty long anyway.



This article was published before the series finale of Teen Wolf

After six seasons of supernatural showdowns, Teen Wolf will air its 100th and final episode as Scott and his pack try to defeat Gerard one last time. But before it all ends, EW talked with showrunner Jeff Davis about the show’s entire run, and, of course, what to expect from the extended series ender.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When did you know the show was going to work?
JEFF DAVIS:
I first felt like we could have something special during the shooting of the second episode when Stiles and Scott go to the Hale house to dig up the supposed body. They were so good together, Tyler [Posey] and Dylan [O’Brien]. I knew if we could create some sort of magic in that friendship that we’d really have something. When they both go leaping out of the hole, it just felt really good. Another scene was when Stiles gets his dad drunk to get information out of him and we see how good Linden [Ashby] and Dylan are. That’s really the magic. You can write all the twists and turns you want but people come to TV for the characters, and when I saw the cast really clicking and becoming their roles, that’s when you knew. I still never thought it would go 100 episodes.

When was the show at its best?
I think the show’s at its best when we’ve struck a really great balance between the thriller-horror plot and character story — when Scott and Stiles are looking at each other wondering if they’re going to lose each other as Stiles is about to go into an MRI to see if he’s really sick or if he’s being possessed by a demon. The emotion rings true in that scene. Or a scene where Scott has lost Allison and she’s no longer with him and she’s been the anchor to which he’s controlled the beast within and Melissa tells him, “Be your own anchor.” It’s the mix of genre and character. It’s always got to be a good balance, and I’m really proud of those scenes that we’ve done like that where genre has allowed us to explore deep character moments.

How long have you known your ending?
There was a year or two ago where I had pitched it to the writing staff a couple different times. I had a feeling that I knew this last image or this last scene that would appear. I had thought originally that 520 was going to be the final episode and I mostly wrote it as a series finale knowing that there was the possibility that there might be 20 more episodes. But I’m glad it wasn’t because it gave us a chance to craft this ending, which feels really good. We’ll see what the audience thinks. It’s definitely not a cut-to-black like The Sopranos. We tried to craft an ending that feels right for the audience and for the characters.

It seems safe to assume we’re building to an epic final battle…
At its heart, the show is called Teen Wolf, so it’s definitely Scott’s story, and that was very important to bring it all back to Scott McCall. We had just done a season that was essentially all about Stiles even though Stiles wasn’t in a lot of it, and when we knew there were going to be 10 more episodes, we said, “Let’s tell a story about Scott McCall.” In our most literary sense, we talked about it being kind of like Prince Hal and Falstaff from Henry IV and what is Prince Hal when he loses Falstaff — Stiles as it were — so he becomes Henry V. If he has to become a king, he’s going to have to fight a war. And that’s how we came up with the idea that this is war. It was Scott being the leader of his troops and making sure everyone survives.

What do you say to fans as they sit down to watch this?
I would say hold on tight and get ready for a classic episode of Teen Wolf. It’s got all the characters back, all except for the ones who are unfortunately dead.

Jeff took over social media to talk about tonight’s series finale and answered a bunch of questions. Here’s a quick list:

  • – Jeff Davis took the needle in the neck as Jackson because Colton was too scared of needles.
  • Nolan will get his redemption.
  • Jeff Davis said Cody Christian was one of the best on the show to work with; “He’s a total pro.”
  • Greenberg is just a figment of Coach’s imagination, says Jeff Davis.
  • Linden Ashby and Tyler Posey directed their respective episodes all on their own.
  • Jeff is proud of everyone involved in the show. He saw them grow up in front of his eyes.
  • Jeff Davis’ inspiration for the different storylines are the people working with him.
  • Jeff Davis felt rushed and happy writing the final episode. He thought it was absolutely awesome to write stories for Derek, Jackson and Stiles.
  • Jeff Davis didn’t expect Colton to reprise his role as Jackson.
  • The most important aspect of Scott and Stiles’ friendship is the loyalty they have, says Jeff Davis.
  • Jeff Davis says Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Posey were perfect to play their respective roles. He could not imagine anyone playing Stiles and Scott.
  • Daniel Sharman did not return as Isaac Lahey because he’s working on another show (Fear the Walking Dead).
  • Jeff Davis’ favorite thing about Malia is her constant search for humanity. It allowed Shelley to be a very funny actor on the show. “She’s awesome” – Jeff Davis
  • Jeff Davis’ would’ve loved a 2-hour finale.
  • Jeff says it was strange to wrap up a series after 100 episodes, but he thought the show would end after 50 episodes.
  • Jeff says the final scene wasn’t quite how he expected, but he expected to see Scott on the final scene. He expected to see Allison (Crystal Reed) there, so that surprised him.
