‘Teen Wolf’ season 3 flashback to feature young Chris Argent, a new kind of evil

Teen Wolf season 3 news keeps trickling in, and this time we’ve learned that we’ll be getting another flashback involving Chris Argent.

This new flashback will feature Chris Argent younger than we’ve ever seen him. According to E! Online, Chris will be 18 years old when we see him in the past.

The flashback involves “a heated battle with a kind of evil not yet seen on the series.” They go on to say that we’ll also be seeing a Yakuza warrior. Interesting!

The Yakuza are members of organized crime groups in Japan, although their members exist around the world. While not all of their business is illegal, they do seem to have less than stellar reputations. They’re also known for strict codes of honor that even the Argent family would probably be proud of.

There’s no indication as to who the Yakuza warrior in the flashback will be, or if he or she is part of the evil that Chris will be fighting.

However, we do know that new student Kira is of partially Japanese descent and is tied to the Kitsune myth. Executive Producer Jeff Davis and his team are staying quiet about whether or not Kira will actually be the Kitsune, leading to many speculations about the direction of her character.

Perhaps Chris seeing Kira will have warranted the flashback about his past. Could the Yakuza warrior and the new evil be tied to Kira or her family in some way? Is it possible that Chris had spent time in Japan and knows about the Kitsune?
