I LOVE TEEN WOLF! If you’re not entirely sure what Teen Wolf is, I’ll give you a quick rundown. Teen Wolf takes place in Beacon Hills, a small town with its fair share of not-too-small problems. In fact the problems are often huge; I’m talking 5-times-the-average-human huge. Scott (Tyler Posey) and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) are best pals and a really great duo – something like Batman and Robin. While Scott is the only supernatural of the two, Stiles, his trusty sidekick, never leaves him hanging. The series tells their story as they grow up and battle the supernatural in Beacon Hills alongside some of their peers.
While Scott, Stiles, and the other boys on Teen Wolf are brave and strong, the Beacon Hill girls are giving them a run for their money this season. The writers are showing us a side of Lydia, Malia and Kira that we’ve never seen.
Since the anticipated return of Season 5, action-packed scenes featuring kickass girls haven’t stopped.
We all know Lydia is a genius when it comes to school – she breezes by in her AP Biology class and leaves Stiles in awe at least four times a day. What we didn’t know was Lydia can also kick some major booty when she needs to. After being admitted into the Eichen house, Lydia puts her skills to work, fighting off sketchy nurses and learning to control her supernatural abilities. As a banshee, Lydia’s senses are heightened, allowing her to predict tragic events before they occur (a blessing and a curse). And let’s not forget about her kickass banshee scream, which she uses to weaken her opponents. The screech is intolerable, so letting out a shout gives her a head start.
Ever since Malia started out on Teen Wolf, we’ve seen nothing but her strong and confident personality. She isn’t afraid to confront the Dread Doctors or Theo when she is unfortunately placed head to head with them. Her ruthless personality shines when she battles for her freedom. With her impressive fighting skills and razor sharp nails, why would she stand down? You go Malia – show off that girl power!
The newest Teen Wolf is Kira, who has mega awesome Kitsune powers. With her Kitsune powers she’s capable of controlling electricity – how awesome is that?! Although she isn’t totally in touch with her abilities yet, she can definitely put up a fight. We’ve seen Kira battle the Skinwalkers, a battle that intensifies when she discovers her mother was the one who organized their…pleasant…arrangement. According to her mother, if Kira can learn from the Skinwalkers and better understand her powers, she can return home to Beacon Hills; if not, Kira must stay in the desert and become a Skinwalker. Kira isn’t only a fighter though. Her personality is hard not to love; she keeps her shoulders back and takes on every challenge with a brave face. When arriving to the desert, she doesn’t let the Skinwalkers intimidate her; she knows what she needs to do, and she does it fiercely.
If you haven’t kept up with Teen Wolf, I highly recommend checking it out! If you begin at Season 1, you’ll get to watch one of my favorite Teen Wolf characters ever, Allison! (Also season 3 welcomes Isaac who I may or may not have a really big crush on!). Anyways Teen Wolf is on every Tuesday at 9/8c! Make sure you tune in to watch Kira, Malia, and Lydia for yourself!
