Jeff Davis took to the Official Teen Wolf Tumblr tonight to answer more fan questions. We got a little more insight into Derek Hale, and it seems that a lot of fandom doesn’t care for Derek with Ms. Blake.
bowtiesarecoollll: is derek going to develop a lot this season?
derek will definitely learn some hard lessons. and he will change quite a bit by the end of this first twelve.
thepeacockvampire: the things that dr. deaton was pushing away so much that it became a habit to do with other things – does that have anything to do with his relationship to the hales and possibly the hale fire and will we start to get answers soon?
yes, very much to do with the hales.
pack-street-boys: hi jeff, i was just wondering how many years has it really been since the fire? cause stiles said 10 years in the pilot then derek said 6 years in the middle of season 1 then derek said 9 years in 3×03. so how many years has it been?
six. derek’s line in 3×03 was actually “not in years.”
suaine: dear jeff, i was really terribly hurt by the way derek and blake were introduced as a “romance” and am resenting the entire storyline to a degree that i never thought possible from this show. considering i’m a diehard sterek shipper, will there come a point where i can love blake?
that’s up to you, suaine. i wonder how you’ll feel when the season is done and if you’re still watching. we try to create a good story. if you don’t feel it’s worth watching anymore all you have to do is stop. i’ve stopped watching many shows i loved! in fact, i stopped watching lost in season 2 but found myself reeled in once again by the season finale. i can say there are many surprises still to come and that haley webb is amazing as jennifer. you learn a lot more about her in upcoming episodes. you may be a sterek shipper but when i started writing the show i had no idea they would be seen as a couple. it was quite a surprise to me. and who knows what will happen? i know that there are a lot of fans out there who have their own ideas of where the story should go, but the truth is no show is written by the fans. it’s written by normal people like me and my team of writers who struggle in a room together trying to come up with an entertaining story. sometimes we fail, sometimes we succeed. whether the story is for you, is entirely up to you.
anthonynicola: does tyler hoechlin have an ask. fm? because the supposed “real” tyler h said holland will be “leaving” teen wolf this season.. is this true…….????
he did? news to me. (Tyler does NOT have an ask.fm)
accordingtomel: okay, so i get derek’s going to be learning a lot of hard lessons, but is he at least going to have some positives this season that won’t end in more pain/trauma/heartbreak for him? he needs something good in his life that isn’t fleeting or that eventually betrays him. i just don’t know how he’s even finding the will to keep fighting, the poor guy. so… is there some hope for him, at least, jeff?
yes, he’ll definitely have some positives.
tenewolf: what do you think about people hating derek and saying he could’ve and should’ve handled the isaac situation differently????
i find characters who make mistakes more interesting to write. and to watch. we made a concerted effort, for example, to show a real change in scott from season 1 to now. a naive kid who becomes a thoughtful leader. i’m pretty happy with derek’s arc this season. hope you like it too!
musical-coda: can you explain to me why people ship sterek??? i watch the show and i’ve tried to see it but i just really don’t. in fact, i don’t ship anything on the show.
well, they do have undeniable chemistry.
deepinsidewonderland: there should be an episode where we see derek/scott/stiles getting drunk and screaming out ac/dc lyrics in derek’s his loft! i love the show!!
“dirty deeds done and they’re done dirt cheap!”
bakaxusagi: hey jeff! to be honest i didn’t like the first meeting between derek and ms. blake, but i will admit the second meeting was so much better!
wait till u see the third!
five-centimeters: was derek aware that isaac’s father had thrown glass at him exactly like that, or was he just trying in general to trigger isaac’s memories of abuse to get him to leave?
yes, he was. we called it our harry and the henderson’s scene.
