That’s right, Sterek fans, we might not be getting too much interaction between Stiles and Derek during the first half of Teen Wolf season 3. Read on to find out what Dylan O’Brien has to say about it!
Season 3 is ramping up to be quite an action packed year for our favorite teen wolf and all of his friends. With the Alpha Pack in town, a few new strangers, the return of the Argents, and the mysterious disappearance of Gerard at the end of season 2, they’ve got a lot going on. We already know that the Alpha Pack leader is going to try to pit Derek and Scott against each other, and that Stiles is going to become a pseudo-detective early on in the season as well. So, unfortunately, that doesn’t leave much time for any Sterek scenes.
But don’t feel down in the dumps just yet! They’re not even done filming the first half of season 3, so we’ve still got 12 episodes on the other side of that for some hilarious scenes between the two characters.
And, it turns out, Dylan O’Brien has some ideas about what should happen the next time they see each other. “There aren’t any Stereky scenes so far,” he tells Zap2it. “But I had an idea for Jeff, that when we do finally meet, and if we have a scene that’s very expositional — like if we come together and something’s going on we have to converge and discuss something — then we should kind of stop at the end of it and before we walk away, Stiles should just say, ‘I missed you.’ Just to acknowledge it for the fans in little, funny ways.”
Whether or not Jeff Davis will listen to O’Brien (though we already know he has to some degree, as O’Brien has penned a scene for episode 3×08), it’s great to see him willing to throw the Sterek fans a bone once in a while. And Davis knows how important the slash couple is to the majority of the fandom, so we’re sure he’ll pay homage to it at some point.
