We’re still reeling from the season 5 summer finale of ‘Teen Wolf,’ and with so much happening, we’re so happy that EP Jeff Davis was there to break down everything.
Was anyone else wondering where the heck Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) was during the Teen Wolf finale on August 24, when his girlfriend Braeden showed up? What about where Kira (Arden Cho) has been hiding? Yes, we had the same thoughts. And Jeff Davis had answers — but they may not be what you’re hoping for.
“[Braeden] was supposed to return in Episode 7, but it didn’t quite fit, so we moved her to Episode 8, then 9, and finally, we got her in Episode 10,” EP Jeff Davis told our sister site, TVLine about her surprise appearance in the finale. “It’s a dance by the end of these episodes, where to place certain characters, but we’re very happy to have her back. You’ll be seeing quite a bit more of her in Season 5B.”
Well… what about her boyfriend? ICYMI, Tyler is no longer a series regular this season, but we kind of expected to see him return for the finale. For the most part, Jeff isn’t saying much — all he told EW was that they weren’t “sure about it yet.” However, now that Braeden’s back, we have hope.
What About Kira?
However, Derek’s not the only one who was missing from the finale — where the heck is Kira? She has been missing now for a few weeks, but luckily, Jeff confirmed that she will be back in episode 12. “We have a really big episode which is all about Kira and Noshiko (Tamlyn Tomita) going off on their own story to try to figure out how to tame the fox spirit within her and it takes place actually in the desert in New Mexico where they have to journey,” he told EW.
Well, that we can’t wait for! What do you guys think? Do you want Derek to return? Let us know!
