Hey, I know it’s not Tuesday, but what the hell, right?
Oh, Teen Wolf, how I love thee. I think I was torn between watching this trailer with rapt fangirl attention and shaking my head in amusement. Let’s face it, for as progressive a show as Teen Wolf is, or at least tries to be, it can delve into being nothing more than a guilty pleasure pretty quickly. There’s all the brooding, “hot” guys, and there’s the romance with badass chicks.
Unfortunately, I also worry that there may be more than enough queerbaiting in the upcoming season. Thankfully, there was nothing in this trailer indicative of queerbaiting from what I saw. I’ll admit, though, that I would love to see Sterek happen for visibility’s stake. Stiles and Derek are supposed to become closer friends this season, so who knows.
Obviously, I haven’t seen season three yet, but already I’m not that happy with it. I mean, we spent all of last season watching Jackson attempt to become a decent person who wasn’t completely reprehensible, only for the actor to leave the show. And Allison has had the exact same story arc in both previous seasons, so I can only wonder what manipulative asshole is going to drive her crazy this time around.
I should point out, however, that this is the first time Teen Wolf is going to have over twenty episodes a season, which will give the show a lot more time to develop its characters and plot. It looks pretty intense as it is. The Alpha pack has come in, and it seems that Derek’s being forced to kill off his own pack members. Speaking of dying, Scott’s mother gets her throat ripped out in this trailer, and I hope that’s in a vision or a dream or something, because I think she’s a pretty interesting character.
I think a lot of the show has been well done thus far, but it’s also had its fair share of problems, so I guess we’ll just have to keep watching to find out.
As for the very end of the trailer:
