Here are a couple of Derek-centric excerpts from Jeff Davis’ interview with E!
Big Bad Plans: … fans can still expect to see Peter and Derek spend a lot of time together.
“We’ve always called him an Iago to Derek’s Othello, so he’s certainly a manipulator,” he explains. “You’re going to find him with Derek quite often. Those two together are quite good. They’re almost like a buddy cop movie waiting to happen.”
A Wolf on a Mission: Yes Derek fans, that means you can expect to see the well-muscled werewolf return. You didn’t really think he was leaving the show for good, did you? Oh, you did? That’s so sweet. We remember our first TV show, too! “Derek has a very specific mission and he will return. As for when he returns and how, you’ll have to wait and see.” Davis confirms you will “see him on his journey” and not just arriving back in Beacon Hills. (FYI: The premiere picks up “only a few weeks” after the finale.)
