Dude, it’s Beacon Hills. No, we haven’t stopped thinking about Teen Wolf’s mindblowing season three finale, arguably the MTV hit’s best episode yet, since Monday night. Come on, not only did another…
Derek missing for two months. Likely imprisoned and tortured by Kate.
I might be sick.
the nogitsune was just misunderstood
Dylan O’Brien spoke with TVLine about Stiles’ dark turn in Season 3B, the affects of Allison’s death — on himself as well as his character — and what the future might hold for Stiles’ love life.
TVLINE | Stiles has been unrecognizable this season. How have you handled that huge shift?
It’s been incredible. I mean, I still can’t get over the fact that I’ve gotten to be on a show for a few years now — my whole acting career, literally — and that I’ve gotten to play a character that provides so much humor. And then to get an arc like this, and to do it with my family — I’ve been working with these people for the last four years of my life, and [they’re] really close to my heart — has been the best experience I could ask for as an actor.
TVLINE | Is this something you asked for, or did they just kind of throw it at you?
I wouldn’t say they threw it at me, but there was never really a discussion. The first time it came up was this one night when I sent an e-mail to [executive producer Jeff Davis] with some random thought like, “Hey, it could be really cool to go evil with Scott.” And he e-mailed me back immediately, saying, “It’s funny that you said that, because we were already planning to go evil with you.” My immediate thought was, “Whoa, really?” I was sort of nervous and not sure what to expect, but also so game to do it.
TVLINE | I have to say, you carried it well. I think everybody was really impressed.
I really cared about it. It was a huge challenge for me, and I was scared at first. I’ve never even tried something like this. But you have to just go for it, and that’s why I love acting; it’s made me face my fears and try things I’d normally be too uncomfortable to try. It’s therapeutic.
Wow that….really does seem like damage control on the part of the PTB. Like…backpedaling from Sterek; “TYLER’S NOT HOMOPHOBIC!”; “Allison’s death is actually going to mean something this time it’s not like Erica and Boyd!”; Dylan saying in one breath that they love the fans and everything they do but talking about sterek “came out wrong”; the confirmation that Malia is going to return and that her and Stiles are the main thing the PR is gonna concentrate on during the hiatus in regards to Stiles’ arc…
This whole thing really does seem really, really scripted more so than usual and it really makes me want to be in the room with the Powers That Be when they were discussing the things Dylan was to say, what he was ALLOWED to say and, more importantly, what he wasn’t allowed to say. This was the damage control I was expecting after PoseyGate, only it’s really really late. Like….
Dylan seems like he’s trying really, really hard to stick to his script, but he also makes a point to say things a certain way, to try to ease the blow but….
Damn I had such high hopes for this show and it’s PR and it NOT queerbaiting but I was super wrong. This direction is just…gross, quite frankly and making me really, really consider being strictly fanon come next season cause I get enough queerbaiting from other fandoms that have better plotlines then Teen Wolf. I’ve stayed so long cause it really did seem like sterek was getting a slow build but this….
The PTB are being very clear that they’re scared of that, so I guess not. That’s disappointing as shit man.
this really makes me wonder where it’s coming from. Is it higher up then Jeff Davis? Remember the real purpose of TV is to sell candy soda and cars. The story is just the vehicle. And if the Highest PTB think that the story will get in the way of their bottom line, that story is gonna get KILLED. They’ve backpedaled on Sterek now since the start of S3 wrt the media and PR. But only since 3b have they really backpedaled within the context of the show itself. This kinda has the scent of a big turd dropped down from VERY HIGH PLACES. Like I’ve always said, it’s okay for Danny to be gay, since he has been SAID to be gay from day 1. It’s quite another thing to “turn” a presumed straight male gay (females can be more sexuality fluid since it’s titillating to the male audience.) The big demographic that advertisers salivate over is the 18-25 year old MALE. Nothing else matters but their free and high disposable income. How many 18-25 yo MALES are going to stick around for Sterek becoming canon? Or even for Stiles becoming bi? (which they will read as gay.) You have two major male types here. The nice guy nerd and the big butch alpha male. That pretty much sums up the college-age viewing audience when it comes to guys. So as I think more about this, and read more of what was actually said, I don’t know where the buck stops, but I somehow suspect it’s higher up than Dylan or even Jeff.
