Teen Wolf Characters Guide – Season 1

A Viewer's Guide to the Characters of Teen Wolf

The characters on Teen Wolf are surprisingly likable, which is no easy feat for a TV show focused on teenagers. Usually, there’s always one or two characters who annoy the daylights out of me, but nobody on Teen Wolf is bugging me so far. Perhaps ‘likable’ is not the right word to describe certain characters, such as the controversial Jackson or the psychotic Kate, but even the so-called villains have a bit of a campy quality to their characterization that makes them enjoyable to watch (i.e. Kate licking Derek’s abs as a torturing method? More of that please.) This is a show where you can root for the protagonists and still enjoy the antagonists at the same time. On that note, let me introduce you to this little humble character guide, which celebrates both the heroes and the villains on Teen Wolf.

    Yes! I'm so glad you did this! And you definitely got Allison right. She is possible even more obsessed with sex than Kate! Not to mention that every time she and Scott make out or start to get “hot and heavy” she almost always starts it and is pretty damn forceful about it, too. But then again she IS related to Kate so I can see where she gets her sexual hunger from. lol

      I'm still convinced that the only reason Alison wanted to capture Scott in the finale is because of all the kinky sex stuff that she can do with Scott all tied up. Besides, anyone who's desperate enough to be a condom thief has to be pretty sex obsessed!

    I just want to see how is it gonna be the first time Allison and Scott have sex, the entire episode will probably be dedicated to that.

    Scott and Allison in bed
    *Stiles doing something productive*
    Scott and Allison still in bed
    *Some secondary character*
    nope, Scott&Allison not getting out of bed anytime soon
    *sub-plotline development*
    Scott and Allison get out of bed.


    Scott and Allison on the floor

      They should totally start off Season 2 with a ~*MUSICAL MONTAGE*~ of how much sex they have in between the seasons.
