Season five of ‘Teen Wolf’ is building up to be one of the show’s most intense yet, and Ryan Kelley teased to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that fans can expect answers as to what Parrish is and what’s in store for Lydia and Parrish!
It’s one of the biggest Teen Wolf questions we all want answered: what in the heck is Parrish? Well, Ryan Kelley, who plays the swoonworthy cop, spilled to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that answers are on the way. He also teased whether or not a Lydia (Holland Roden) and Parrish romance will be happening, Parrish’s possible connection to the Dread Doctors and more!
Every single week, we go back-and-forth on what Parrish is. Phoenix? Kitsune? Pyromaniac with a heart of gold? Well, fear not, Wolfies. Parrish’s big reveal will happen, but Ryan is super tight-lipped about it. “It’s coming, I can tell you that,” he told HollywoodLife.com. “But it seems like every time you see Parrish on screen, you just get more questions rather than answers.”
Ryan admits that Parrish is likely not sure what is going on at all. (Yeah, taking random bodies to the nemeton fully nude is something you’d likely remember.) “Right now, I don’t think he really knows what he’s doing,” he continued. “I don’t even think he remembers it. I don’t think Parrish would knowingly allow himself to be out in public if he was potentially a threat to other people, especially people he cares about.”
This also raises questions about Parrish and the Dread Doctors. The deadly trio has been forcing Beacon Hills teens to do things they don’t want to do, so could Parrish be a part of that? “Oh, definitely. I hope he’s not an experiment, but he could be,” he said. “The Dread Doctors always seem to be a step ahead of everyone and Parrish seems to be playing right into their hands, but it depends on how you look at it. Is he with the Dread Doctors, is he not? Is he doing his own thing, his own evil thing?”
Well, when Parrish isn’t doing shady things, he’s flirting it up hardcore with Lydia. The Parrish and Lydia pairing is trying to compete with the Stydia fandom, and Ryan reveals there’s “100%” something going on with them. Ryan thinks they would make a good match, considering all they’ve been through together!
“Whether it’s more romantic or just friendship, that is still unknown,” Ryan told us. “Jeff and the writers toyed with Parrish and Lydia, and it’s all been dream sequences or Parrish’s subconscious, however you want to take it. There hasn’t actually been any hard reality of them being a couple, it’s just been a strong freindship that’s more flirtatious. I think something’s there. Whether or not it will become romantic is up to the writers and what they have planned.”
Teen Wolf airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
