Executive producer Jeff Davis explains how they’ve been building to this moment for so long.
“This was the relationship that we’d been building to for a long time,” Jeff told EW. “Knowing that it was the final season we discussed: Where do we want to focus the drama, where do we want to focus the character revelations? If it had been another season, we might’ve gone down a different path. It might’ve been Scott (Tyler Posey) and Stiles’ friendship that had broken through; it might’ve been Stilinski’s love for his son that had broken through, but this was the season we really wanted to get into Stiles and Lydia. This was the path we hadn’t yet explored. It also felt right. The relationship has always been so meaningful as well; they’ve grown together so much.”
“We knew we didn’t want Stiles to just pop in and out of the season,” Jeff also said. “We wanted him to be a real focus of the season and this gave us an opportunity to show how much we treasure the character. It felt like a good way to honor his character.”
Holland Roden is very upset that she’s being labeled and accused of having hate in her heart.
The 30-year-old Teen Wolf star responded to some accusations being made about her in reference to old interview quotes.
“I guess this stems from quite a while ago when I tweeted about three separate, but incredibly devastating events that happened around the same time; that’s why it didn’t surprise me with the world in a tailspin these last few years- it simply made me sad- that these three events all happened around the same time. They all had to do with bribes, suppressing, or enslaving populations. This had absolutely nothing to do with any sort of religion. Anything else being insinuated is absolutely false. You are part of the problem to those people that are throwing the incredibly serious term Islamaphobic towards people you don’t know,” Holland wrote on Instagram. “It’s ignorant and more importantly, it contributes poorly to a situation where people who are being targeted need our help more than ever right now. Being a women studies major and living in West Hollywood for the last decade- anything having to with LGBTQ rights – I am firmly for- firmly. Anything I have said about this issue has raised awareness not distracted from the matter: whether I’m making light of a serious situation- or I’m protesting on the front lines.”

It only took six seasons, but it looks like we’re finally going to get the Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) and Lydia (Holland Roden) relationship play out (in some way) on Teen Wolf.
Well, that’s if we get Stiles back from those Ghost Riders sometime soon…
So why did the show decide to explore the Stydia dynamic now?
“It was partly that we knew that these would be the last 20 episodes,” Showrunner Jeff Davis told ScreenerTV.com. “It’s the final season, and a lot of it is thinking, ‘Okay, what are the things we haven’t done? What are the relationships that haven’t really gone there yet? Should we go there? Should we go for it?”
Teen Wolf airs Tuesdays @ 9/8c on MTV.
