Lydia finds love It’s not the first priority, but she does get a new love interest this season. The thing that excites me is Lydia’s true love becomes her friends.
Lydia and Stiles become a detective duo? She becomes Stiles’ sidekick. They develop a really strong friendship this year, which I think the Stydia fans will like. Basically we become a detective duo. It’s really fun working with Dylan [O'Brien] and I just love watching Stiles with Lydia. I’ve said since the beginning that they’re basically the same person at their core: intelligent people who are a little misunderstood.
Season 3′s darker tone I love that it allows us to bring in a lot more werewolf mythology. Also, you’ll see a lot of that darkness in how some of the villains manifest themselves.
Jackson effect on Lydia In terms of her relationships with other people, by taking Jackson away, she’s forced to open up to others. But in terms of the ultimate reason Lydia’s part of Teen Wolf, it didn’t make a difference. Jeff talked to me about her big journey on the show after season one, and I don’t think that would have changed either way. You saw bits and pieces of that in season two, but no one truly understood what was going on with her. I always say that Lydia didn’t know she was on a werewolf show until the end of season two. You saw the bits and pieces in season two, you saw the physicality of her being involved with the supernatural stuff, this year, you’ll understand the psyche behind it.
Lydia’s screaming antics related to Peter Hale story? Yes, it’s all tied in. There are no coincidences in Beacon Hills. It’s very much tied in with what is happening in Beacon Hills and what happened to Lydia in season two. I have this analogy: I was obsessed with Lost, and I think Lydia is The Hatch. Teen Wolf season two was like the moment Locke uncovered the door. This season, you go in and hear the weird, creepy Buddy Holly music and hear the treadmill running. You understood that this was real last season, and now this season is about finding out how it’s possible.
What do you think is the reason behind Lydia’s crazy screaming? Are you excited to see Stydia interact more this season? And just who could be Lydia’s new love interest?
