'Teen Wolf' EP on a 'More Adult' Season 3 and Upcoming Character Deaths (Q&A)
Teen Wolf is back, and it’s darker than ever. In the Jan. 6 winter premiere, Scott (Tyler Posey) continues to have struggles finding his place as an Alpha. And as a result of bringing back power in Beacon Hills, Scott, Allison (Crystal Reed) and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) start to experience side effects, with a new student (Arden Cho) possibly holding the key to their answers.

I’m kinda confused by two sentences in this article about Jeff writing what the fans want:
The characters may not act like they should or act like themselves. I’m not sure the audience would absolutely want that.
Ummmm…. so when watching Derek interact with Jennifer he wasn’t out of character or not acting like himself? I mean, he doesn’t trust many people, Stiles literally held him up in a pool for hours and Derek said he didn’t trust him, but a pretty girl batters her eyes and helps him when he needs it and he trusts her so much that he sleeps with her, even after she talks him into not calling his pack to let them know he’s alright. Derek literally knew nothing about her and yet he trusted her more so than a person who not only helped once but several times. I don’t get it, I really don’t. Unless Jeff confirms that everything (or most of it) between Jennifer and Derek was non-con/dub-con then Jeff just contradicted himself. You can’t say you won’t do anything that the fans want because the characters wouldn’t be themselves when you have already made a character completely ooc.
Jeff does go on to say:
I think they want to be surprised. I don’t think they necessarily want their versions of the characters; I think they want to be surprised and shocked by what’s on screen.
We may not want our version of the characters and we do want to be surprised but we also want a character to not do a complete 180. Yes, Jeff is the writer, but some of the things he has written contradicts what he says to regards on why he writes something or doesn’t pander the fans.
What does everyone else think?
what fans has jeff davis been talking to???
i’d say most fans want continuity, derek to have a good day and people to stop dying
