Guys, guys, guys! *squeals* The first Teen Wolf Season 5 trailer is here! And it. LOOKS. AWESOME.
Take a look!!
Hey MTV, I’d appreciate a warning before you post new footage about my favorite show. You know, maybe a mysterious tweet or a ‘leaked’ scoop, just so I can prepare myself. Do we have a deal? Good, now that that’s established, let’s talk about the trailer! This doesn’t get old, I’m going to repeat “TEEN WOLF SEASON 5 TRAILER” on a loop till it sinks in.
Okay. Deep breaths. *frantically tries to collect self*
1. “Something’s changed.”
Thanks, Scott, we hadn’t noticed.
Did you see the tension between those two? I am crying. While I’m ecstatic to finally get a glimpse at the arcs that’ll be developed this season, I’m also very, very fond of Scott and Stiles’ relationship. Stiles screaming “Because you trust everyone!” to his bewildered best friend makes my heart hurt. Regardless of what this’ll do to my well-being, it seems like Stiles finally has a worthy arc this season and I couldn’t be happier about it!
Hell on Earth Eichen House makes a comeback
I’ve always felt like Lydia’s storylines were a little squandered in the past, mostly servicing the general plot in some way but never going beyond that. But this time, this time, she’s wandering aimlessly around white corridors, looking nothing like her usual self and I’m so here for it.
“Tell me what happened to them. What happened to your friends?”
3. Hello Theo, my old friend
It’s been rumored for a while that Theo was a part of Scott’s past, and it’s confirmed from the footage in the trailer.
“You don’t remember me, do you?”
I wasn’t sure how to feel about this storyline since we knew less than nothing about it but now … well, I’m very intrigued and I’m going to need to know more. SOON. Especially since Theo may just be the one to split the pack in two if Stiles and Malia’s stances are anything to go by. Of course, I realize trailers are often edited in such a way to make certain scenes seem linked or more tragic than they actually are, so we’ll see.
4. You better not be hurting my faves
A mangled hand? Screaming? People getting slammed against walls, and not in a hot way? Something happening to Sheriff Stilinski is unfathomable and I refuse to even think about it. Maybe he’s having a bit of a nap and the ground seemed comfy, okay?
There have been false-alarms with the Sheriff several times over the past seasons, so until we know more, I’m in denial. This, however, doesn’t explain why Stiles’ unconscious body is lying amongst the debris and inches away from a rapidly propagating fire?!
I can’t handle this. Why can’t anyone ever live happily ever after in Beacon Hills, doing mundane things like grocery shopping and going to the movies to see Mad Max: Fury Road like everyone else?!
MTV presents your friendly, neighborhood blood spatter, no biggie.
5. “Oh, so you thought the Oni were scary. Ha. Hahahahaha.” – The Teen Wolf creative team, probably
The teaser from April already mentioned these, um,
charming people brand new villains in a sufficiently terrifying manner. One month later and no, I still do not want the doctor to see me now.
I’ll take pain and agony over anything this guy might be offering, thank you very much. Where’s Guidance Counselor Extraordinaire/Shady Psychiatrist/Deaton’s Creepy Sister: Marin Morell quoting Churchill when we need her, huh?
“When you’re going through hell, keep going.”
Also, what’s with the birds? Could we finally be getting to the as of yet unknown part of “The coyote, raven, fox – they’re all hungry.”?!
Bonus n°6. Because hey, why not
My girl Malia looks like she’s kicking some a** out there, but the desperate look on her face makes me very anxious about what’s happening.
Stay away from Theo though, Malia. I get that he has abs and all, but 1. You have Stiles and 2. Theo’s still pretty shady from where I’m standing.
If anyone needs me I’ll be watching the trailer over and over while quietly whispering “It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s all fictional they’re all going to be fine and riding into the sunset on pink scooters with a unicorn motif.”
Teen Wolf comes back into our lives (bless) with a double premiere on June 29th and 30th.
