It’s not a great time to be a werewolf in Beacon Hills. What are your thoughts on the season premiere?
Teen Wolf‘s second season kicked off June 3, and while it continued to follow last season’s winning formula — heavy on suspense, light on clothing — it also introduced some pretty nasty curveballs for Scott (Tyler Posey) and the gang. Fortunately, one thing will never change: Everyone in Beacon Hills is still ridiculously attractive.
Allison’s (Crystal Reed) grandfather came to town for Kate’s funeral (RIP!), and it turns out he’s just like every other grandfather: He sends money for birthdays, he wears old-fashioned tweed hats, and he cuts werewolves in half with swords. Yes, that last part really did it happen; and it was super gross. Needless to say, he’s probably going to be a thorn in Scott’s side for the rest of the season — but that’s better than being a sword in his stomach.
Speaking of Scott and Allison, they’re now hooking up in secret after Mr. Argent (J.R. Bourne) threatened to kill Scott if he ever touched his daughter again. Little did he know, a whole lot of touching went down on the premiere, though Allison’s Nazi mom interrupted her sexy times with Scott when she came barging in her bedroom. (Scott’s getting REALLY good at sneaking out windows these days.)
Fresh off his season-finale nibble from Derek (Tyler Hoechlin), Jackson (Colton Haynes) was itching for his first transformation, but instead discovered his (perfect) body was actually fighting the bite. I honestly never thought I could find Jackson unappealing — until I saw him bleeding black blood from his ears and nose. Regardless of what happens to him, I just hope he stops being gross. We need #HotJackson back! (That’s right, get it trending, kids.)
The other big question mark of the premiere was Lydia (Holland Roden), who bolted naked from her hospital room and ran off shrieking into the night. She was eventually discovered a few nights later, but not before a handful of mangled corpses turned up in Beacon Hills. We still don’t know whether or not Lydia was said mangler, but we do know Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) will continue to love her either way. He even defended her for allegedly digging up a dead person and eating their liver! (“It’s the most nutritious part of the body.”)
We also met a few new friends, but it might be too soon to officially call them that. There’s Isaac (Daniel Sharman), a handsome dude who LITERALLY works the graveyard shift at the graveyard, and Matt (Stephen Lunsford), another handsome dude who loves to take creepy pictures of Allison at funerals. Yes, they both have their flaws — but they’re so pretty, I’m willing to look past them.
OK, give me your thoughts on the premiere: Do you think Jackson and Lydia are werewolves? We’ll get the answer to (some of) these questions tomorrow night, so for now, drop your thoughts and theories in the comments section below!
