‘Teen Wolf’ season 5B fresco takes us to hell and back

Teen Wolf has been getting us pumped for season 5B, and thanks to another puzzle we had to solve, we have a disturbingly beautiful look into the new season.

Nothing gets you excited for a new season of Teen Wolf like a giant pile of dead bodies.

On Monday, 100 images were sent out to Teen Wolf fans across several social media platforms (and this isn’t the first time they’ve made us go on the hunt for new information). No instructions were attached, but we collectively began to realize the pieces fit together to form a larger image. As each person got in on the hunt (including us!), the final painting was revealed, and though grotesque, it was also gorgeous, in true Teen Wolf fashion.

You can see the entire image below. Or a super high quality version here.

There is so much to look at in this image, which appears to show Beacon Hills High completely destroyed. We could spend hours discussing its intricacies and hidden meanings, but instead let’s look at the most important parts and the clues that were left for us.

Did you spot…

…your faves?

Scott is one of the few characters on the entire poster that still looks alive. He’s reaching out to someone or something, trying to get out from underneath the pile of bodies.

Stiles is looking in the same direction as Scott, though he seems less hopeful. That might be because he’s worried about his father, who’s slumped in front of him. (And don’t miss Donovan with a pipe through his chest behind Stiles.) Nearby is Malia, who’s being choked by a woman — her mother? Someone else?

Kira’s fate is a little more solidified, as she’s staring out from the pile of bodies, her katana having been driven through a physical representation of her fox spirit.

Lydia, in her Eichen House garb, is lying on a slab of concrete, looking somewhat comatose if not completely dead.

Liam is also present, the slashes across his chest indicating he’s been attacked.

Many fans are speculating the figure across from Malia is Allison, and we just have one question: WHY, MTV? WHY??

Throughout the image you can also see closeups of Jordan Parrish, Chris Argent, and potentially several other minor characters.

…all the villains we love to hate?

We also get a glimpse at quite a few villains from the past. Near the top we see the nogitsune, thriving amongst the sea of the departed.

Also prominently displayed near the top is the Darach’s head on a stick.

The Dread Doctors, who are still a current problem in Beacon Hills, peek out from behind the destruction.

Fans are also speculating that perhaps this could be a fourth Dread Doctor. Notice how he seems to have a third eye. Did the Doctors take Valack’s eye to create a new member of their group?

The Sluagh also seems to be making an appearance.

And the oni can’t be left out, of course.

Plus let’s not forget Belasko, the wolf with the glowing claws.

…these interesting details?

The Teen Wolf fandom attaches itself to the strangest of things, but we’re not sorry. The promo image also features Roscoe the Jeep and Stiles’ bat — both of which aren’t looking too great.

We also see a human heart sitting near Lydia.

There’s wolfsbane near the bottom, and a pair of dog tags with Jordan Parrish’s name on them.

Plus Stiles’ name, which doesn’t seem ominous at all.

And this mysterious symbol that has the whole fandom talking. A seven point star, called a septagram, represents the number seven and is a pagan symbol. It has been used both in Wiccan and Christian symbology with various meanings depending on its origins.

And don’t forget the scroll held in someone’s hand that supposedly reads, “damnatio memoriae,” a Latin phrase meaning “condemnation of memory.” This was a title bestowed to traitors.

What else did you see?

This painting is an incredibly detailed look into both the next half of Teen Wolf Season 5, as well as past seasons and characters. It’s going to take a while to decode it all, so let us know if you spotted anything new!

Teen Wolf season 5B premieres on Tuesday, January 5 at 9:00 p.m. on MTV.
