'Teen Wolf' Mystery: Is Lydia Really The Evil Kanima?

Teen Wolf Kanima

Who do YOU think the Kanima really is? Read my theories and share your own!

Last week, we learned the name of the lizard creature that’s been terrorizing Beacon Hills — Kanima! Spooky! — and on the June 25 episode of Teen Wolf, the baddie’s true identity will finally be revealed! According to MTV, Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) is “convinced” it’s Lydia (Holland Roden), but as always, I’ve got my own theories to share.

Here’s a rundown of my potential Kanimas:

Jackson: First of all, we know he’s got some sort of super strength because trucks are super heavy in real life, but Jackson (Colton Haynes) lifted his out of the mud like it was NBD. Also, now that we’ve learned his little home video was tampered with, there’s no telling what he really did the night of the full moon!

Lydia: Her crazy visions aside, Lydia woke up one morning covered in blood, with a broken mirror on her nightstand. Remember when the Kanima got confused by its own reflection at the pool? Exactly. Plus, Stiles said he recognized the creature’s eyes — and we all know how he feels about Lydia.

Matt: The Kanima may not like its own reflection, but with his camera in hand, Matt (Stephen Lunsford) is more interested in capturing other people’s reflections. We don’t know very much about him, other than his shadiness, so anything remains possible for this guy.

Allison’s Grandpa: If you thought Matt was a stretch, just wait until you hear this theory. You know those pills Grandpa Argent is always popping? Could they be designed to suppress his inner Kanima? If so, he should probably up his dosage.

Mr. Harris: Stiles’ chemistry teacher gives me the creeps. And you’ve got to admit, he looks pretty reptilian. That is all.

Scott’s boss: No real theory here. I just accuse him of being everything. I also think he’s working with “A” on Pretty Little Liars.

OK, Teen Wolf fans, who do YOU think the Kanima really is? Is Derek right, or is Lydia too obvious? Cast your vote below, then drop a comment with your best theories!

It physically cannot be Grandpa Argent, because he was at the dinner with Scott and Allison. Jackson and Matt were also at the lacrosse game, (I think) so it can’t be them either.

Personally, I do think it is Lydia (even though it is just too obvious.) Jeff Davis said that the mystery wasn’t really who the Kanima is, but more why it became what it is.
Either way, I’m insanely excited for tonight!!!

The kanima is neither matt (camera man) or Jackson 

Stiles said he felt like he knew who the kanima was like friend in a Halloween mask but with Matt there was no prior interaction between Stiles and camera man. Plus Matt has no known ties to the werewolf community of any kind.

This is Proof that the Kanima is not Jackson
In the previews it shows Dereks Betas carrying Jackson in his lair and Derek feeding him the Kanima toxins 

In this preview Jackson states that he was in fact paralyzed from the neck down which proves he can’t be the Kanima.

PLEASE WATCH

Although this is proof it’s not Jackson he still may be something considering he picked up the truck and the missing footage on the camera.

One finale note:
Lydia was out and about naked missing the same time Allison’s aunt Kate’s grave was robbed and since Lydia’s is having all these visions of Peter .Maybe Peter is possessing her somehow and since she was going to confess something to styles maybe she is indeed the Kanima and that’s what she was going to confess.Plus the whole mirror thing as you probably know when she punched the mirror and the kanima hated its own reflection and how the Kanima ignored an obvious chance to kill styles in the beginning of abomination and how it striked both Derek and the female-Beta but avoided styles yet again.

Jackson is a fucking manipulator. Evidence dismissed.

I wasn’t sure who the creature is! I hope it is lydia because this will be a new chapter in her life. I will also like to see more romance and drama in derek,issac lahey,erica reyes,and scott’s life as well!

its not Jackson because at the lacrosse game he was in the game and the kanima showed up while he was playing lacrose and it cant be allisons grandpa because he was eating dinner with his family and the kanima showed up so it might be Matt or Lydia or peters alive

I agree with your theory except for the Peter thing. Why would it be Peter if he was burned when Derek killed him? Everybody at the scene had seen him burn.

that one guy

i do not believe it is lydia due to the fact of the accident. yea is starting to become a little crazy because she sees peter’s face almost everywhere. and as for the blood, we don’t know if peter made another appearance to her during the night in her mirror causing her to break it. i also do not think it’s jackson. yes there is something definitely wrong with him that we don’t know yet but i highly doubt it’s him. i strongly believe that it is allison’s grandfather. think about it, the attacks from the kanima didn’t start until he came to town. look at the structure of his face and head and compare it to the that of the kanima, it’s almost identical. and like jamal said, there is a possibility of two of them. but i do think that the one we are seeing more often is allison’s grandfather.

Its a little far fetched by think about my idea.

Jackson is something. He is either a werewolf or the Kanima. That day when he set the camera up he turned into the Kanima and attacked whoever. His parents deleted the footage from his camera. Do you know why? Because he is adopted and they dont want him to find out his real father is Peter Hale. He already has werewolf blood in him so it could have been contaminated with Derek’s bite.

Jeff Davis the director says the Kanima not attacking Erica is important and it reveals the identity of the Kanima. We know one person that cares about Erica is Scott’s mom. But did anyone else see the camera pan to Jackson when Erica transformed into that gorgeous girl. And it was not because he was jealous of her being a werewolf. How would he have known this if even Scott and Stiles didn’t know she was a werewolf?

Last point. You should realize that there are two Kanimas. One with yellow eyes that we encountered in Issac’s house attacking Allison or at the mechanic with Stiles. And there is the other one with brownish eyes that was at the pool.

Im also sorry but I think Peter Hale is alive. The hand in the Lydias shower was real because it brought her away to Derek’s We saw a creature eating livers remember? What if Peter Hale is finding a way to come back like Voldemort..

He is trying to split the group up by intimidating everyone. Remember one of them is a shapeshifter so we can probably guess that one became the Guidance Counselor and made Lydia feel bad about her self. Next is Jackson. And after that he will probably make Stiles feel like Scott isnt a good friend..

thinkk about it ! lydia crashed her mirror probably because she saw herself in it after she came back from the mechnic shop thingy . & when stiles said he think the kanima knew him , who else could it be besides lydia , not jackson . AND when stiles left lydia to go into the office, she kept saying “you’re gonna think im crazy” . she was probably gonna tell him ,she was probably going to tell him she had been blacking out & waking up seein strange things . she my not know shes the kanima because she ran away after scott showed her her reflection , but its a HUGE chance that its her ! but jackson may be a werewolf because he was abl to life the car , but whoever took the camera out his room & deleted the footage didnt want him to know that . matt is REALLY weird & he may like allison , but the kanima was about to kill allison in that episode 2 weeks ago . if its allison;s grandfather that will be HILARIOUS !

I don’t think it is Lydia but I don’t think Peter bit her either. (Her wound looked NOTHING like a bite of any kind.) It is for sure NOT Jackson because if you watch The first episode of the season jackson comes out of WATER with his shirt torn and junk. and the Kanima is afraid of water. I think it is Matt because At the game you find out that Matt may have a weird obsession with Allison and right after stiles calles one of the other lacrosse players by his nickname “Abomination”. And if you recall the first time we saw The Kanima (The abomination) It was stalking LYDIA. Booooooom!

it cant be lydia its too obvious plus the kanima in human form has blue eyes… and we all know jackson is confused but who knows what he is. all i know is that it is stalking styles… two days in a row. i also read a little on how styles gets ttaked again and is traumatized by seein the kanima as his father and stays at lydias for the time even though it is not his father and the kanima is killed in episode 6,7, or8

It makes sense that Lydia would be the Kanima. It seems whenever shes out and about the Kanima attacks. Remember the night she was missing from the hospital? The Kanima attacked that night. However Jackson does live closer to Issac’s house when the Kanima attacked there. I’m still debating between the two. However by Monday’s episode I will have my answer!~
