Even Crystal herself reached out to her fans, knowing they were going through a hard time:
I cant compose a tweet to express my feelings. I Love you all so dearly. #mtvteenwolf

It was sweet of Crystal to show her understanding over the loss her fans felt — a loss so strong that the hashtag #RIPAllison took over Twitter for the night:

Crystal Reed’s Choice To Move On From ‘Teen Wolf”
So with all this anguish following Allison’s death, why was she killed off, anyway?
Crystal has explained that it was her decision to leave the show and to take her career in another direction. As a 29-year-old actress, she felt it was time for her to stop playing a high schooler.
Her reasoning does make sense and we respect Crystal’s decision to leave Teen Wolf behind, but was killing her off really the best choice that the writers could have made for Allison Argent?
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
