Previewing tonight’s Teen Wolf season 3 finale, Dylan O’Brien (Stiles) talks about how the major death in last week’s episode will affect his character.

If you haven’t watched last week’s episode (season 3, episode 23, “Insatiable”), we suggest you get right on that. There are spoilers ahead.

The death of Allison Argent stunned fans of Teen Wolf, but we’re not the only ones struggling with coming to terms with the main character’s permanent departure. “These kids have gotten almost good in these situations; they’re used to this terrifying life. But [Allison’s death] scared them. This was the first time they’ve lost one of their own,” O’Brien tells TVLine.

And while it’s true that they’ve lost friends and family members in the past — Boyd, Erica, and Victoria are just a few — this time it’s different. This time, it was someone in their inner circle, someone who had been around since the very beginning. And that’s bound to send ripples through the entire group.

Speaking of his own character, though, O’Brien says that Stiles will be taking Allison’s death roughly. “Allison’s death affects Stiles, specifically, because he can’t help but feel responsible for it.”

Allison was killed by the oni, which were being controlled by Void Stiles. Though the real Stiles had no direct part in her death, it is understandable that he feels as though he had the power to stop it. And if he couldn’t do it before, he’s certainly going to try now.

“The only way to stop the Nogitsune, as far as [Stiles] knows, is for him to die. Her death, and what it does to Stiles, is kind of the last straw. He’s now fully committed to sacrifice himself.”

The remainder of the interview on TVLine talks about Stiles’ continued interest in Lydia, but also his blossoming romance with Malia (Shelley Hennig). And speaking of Malia, it looks like she will be a season 4 regular from here on out!

Stiles is out of it these days on Teen Wolf, but you would be too if you were possessed by a mischievous and evil Japanese spirit.

And following last week’s epic reveal of that possession, we hear it’s only going to get worse for the gang in Beacon Hills before it gets better. In a chat below, Dylan O’Brien previews the horror to come and breaks down last week’s creepy (and slightly bro-mantic) episode.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We need to start by talking about last week’s episode. Tell me about filming that scene at the hospital between Scott and Stiles because it was, honestly, one of the quieter moments of the episode and still my favorite of the hour.
DYLAN O’BRIEN: Tyler [Posey] and I are always excited when we get those scenes. I think those are the scenes we’re more drawn to because, I guess, those are the ones that get us, too. They get the audience [excited] and those are the scenes that [also] excite us. It’s almost a little nervewracking because you feel a little pressure to portray it nicely. But when you’re there and you do it, I think a lot of my and Tyler’s actual relationship translates to screen because we are really close in real life. We’ve been doing this together for four years now, and the show is really close to both of our hearts, you know? It always will be. But it’s all very personal for us, and it’s all real, I guess, in a sense.

How fun has it been playing evil Stiles?
It’s been awesome. It’s always one of those things that you’re worried about, I guess. I had fun doing it always and it’s been a blast as an actor. It’s been really cool discovering this new character and this entire other essence I get to play that’s so polar opposite from what I’ve already done on the show. At first, I didn’t really know what to do. I also didn’t know entirely what [the situation with the character] was going to be. We get the episodes week by week and I’m kind of rolling with the punches a little. But that’s what I love about the show, though. I find it challenging as an actor to always adapt to what’s being created for your character on the page. So there’s definitely a lot of stuff this season, for sure, that I’d never had to do before or ever had to try.

We’ve seen a few actors — especially on TV in the past few years — have to take on two roles on one show at the same time. When preparing to play Evil Stiles, was there any show or movie that you looked to for inspiration or ideas?
The funny thing is, no. Never. I never thought about it once before I was doing it and I think throughout the whole filming of the season, I didn’t really think about it…There’s always those Jekyll/Hyde roles in movies and stuff. I guess maybe I should have researched before hand. I don’t know. I’m also scared of copying what people have done. So maybe I try to keep myself as ignorant as I can possibly be. Because I feel like you get the most pure performance in that way.

Get ready for an unlikely collaboration that will warm your pop culture-loving heart: Recent “X Factor” champions Alex and Sierra have teamed up with “Teen Wolf” star Dylan O’Brien for a new song.

Florida-based duo Alex and Sierra have been in Los Angeles since early January writing and recording their debut album. They perfected their folky duets on the third season of the FOX reality competition, but are apparently open to adding a third voice to the mix. (They sang “Bleeding Love” with U.K. “X Factor” winner Leona Lewis during the final Season 3 performance show.)

Alex and Sierra tweeted a picture from the studio on Tuesday (Jan. 21).

The musically inclined O’Brien plays the drums in a band — at least according to his Wikipedia page — but has also recorded himself singing (sort of) in videos posted online.

No word on what the song sounds like — or when we’ll get to hear it.

In the remaining episodes of Season 3 of the MTV drama series Teen Wolf, Scott (Tyler Posey) is struggling to find his place as an Alpha, while he, Allison (Crystal Reed) and his best friend Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) are experiencing strange side effects after reigniting the power within Beacon Hills. And in the heightened world these teenagers live in, all of their lives are in danger and everything has extreme consequences.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actor Dylan O’Brien talked about just how close Stiles will get to losing his mind, the challenge of finding the comic relief as the storylines get more serious, and how much better it is now that Stiles’ dad knows what’s going on. He also talked about his work in the post-apocalyptic film The Maze Runner, due out in theaters on September 19th, how much he enjoyed working with the cast, how beautiful it looks, and how he can’t wait for audiences to see it. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Collider: What can you say about where things are going for Stiles, and just how close he’ll get to completely losing his mind?

DYLAN O’BRIEN: Pretty close. It’s stuff I’ve really been working hard on, and it’s my first try at [stuff that dramatic]. It gets worse, for each of us. There literally becomes a point where Stiles is going to check himself into a mental hospital. It’s that bad. We finally pinpoint what’s going on mid-season, but then that just brings on a whole other bag of problems, like how it usually goes on our show. But, it’s done in a really clever, cool way. It was a lot of fun for me, this season. I had a lot of really cool stuff that I’m excited for everybody to see, and I hope goes over well. At the end of the day, it felt good walking away, and it’s just about the experience. It was a really fun season to do, and I think we all feel that way, about the show in general, about each other’s parts, and about our own parts. It’s good. It will be weird, but good.

Is it a little bit harder to find the comic relief, for these episodes?
O’BRIEN: Yes. That’s a good question. That’s one of my main challenges. I never want to lose that essence of the character that I built a foundation on and that I love so much. I get all these tormenting storylines, and I just try to figure it out. Clearly, that changes a person, but I refuse to toss Stiles away, at all. My job then becomes about balancing and trying to blend the humor and the comedy with the horrible, daunting, crazy stuff that’s going on. When he’s going through this season is dramatized, so it’s hard to keep the humor in. But, fans should not fear ‘cause that is always something that’s on my mind. I will never let Stiles get too dramatic. I don’t care what they write for me, I’ll just start cracking jokes. I want him to have that confident energy about him. I love that. I also love that people have every layer possible in them, too. I just hope that the scripts keep everything that I like about Stiles, and that the fans do, too. I basically hope that this season doesn’t make them hate me. The whole time I’m like, “Oh, god, please don’t kill me!”

8. Dylan O’Brien, “The Maze Runner”
If you’ve been watching MTV’s re-imagined TV series “Teen Wolf,” you are well aware of Dylan O’Brien’s scene-stealing charm. This year we finally get to see him in a leading role with franchise potential in the big-screen adaptation of James Dasher’s popular novel “The Maze Runner.”

Fans of MTV’s Teen Wolf should prepare to lose more than just their minds when the series returns in January.

Someone from the heart of the series will not live to see season 4, according to Happy Cool’s interview with series creator Jeff Davis.

“Prepare to lose someone,” Davis teased. “We will be possibly be changing out main title sequence so not everyone’s going to make it out of this season alive.”

As the teen supernatural drama prepares to unleash one of its darkest storylines yet, the revelation that death is imminent is not too surprise. The idea that the slain will be one of the series core characters, however, is slightly more unnerving.

The title sequence for season 3A consisted of Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Allison Argent (Crystal Reed), Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin), and Lydia Martin (Holland Roden), meaning one of these five could be departing the series. However, it is unknown if the opening credits will be the same for 3B, which opens up the possibility that Issac Lahey (Daniel Sharman) or Kira (Arden Cho) could also be targets.

Despite the looming specter of one major departure, Roden recently hinted that the death toll of the next 12 episodes may be drastically less than last summer. The young banshee won’t be screaming nearly as often, according to E!.

Teen wolf returns Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.

THU, 05 DECEMBER 2013 AT 2:00 PM

The cast of Maze Runner snaps a pic ahead of their dinner at Saddle Ranch in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (December 3).

Stars Will Poulter, Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Joe Adler, Carl Green, Chris Sheffield, and Aml Ameen met up at the western-themed restaurant after months apart since filming the movie earlier in the year.

“Saddle ranch nights… #cali,” Kaya captioned with the pic.

The studio behind the film is already planning for the second book in the series, “The Scorch Trials”, to head to the big screen.

In “The Scorch Trials”, the main kids have escaped, but now they face an even more treacherous challenge on the open roads of a devastated planet.

The winter premiere of Teen Wolf won’t arrive until January 6, but we’ve got five spoilers to hold you over until then!

After watching a screener of Teen Wolf season 3, episode 13, we can say without any doubt that you haven’t seen anything yet. The winter season of Teen Wolf is bound to be the darkest and creepiest of the series, and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for our heroes.

In the meantime, here are five spoilers we can share with you from the episode “Anchors.”

Throwback
There will be a line between Scott and Stiles that’s a throwback to season 1, episode 1. It’s subtle, but if you’re paying attention, you’re bound to notice it. We won’t spoil the surprise for you, but we will say that diehard fans are going to enjoy this little walk down memory lane.

Mind.Blown
If the rest of the winter season is anything like the premiere episode, prepare for your minds to be blown. Nothing is what it seems, and just as soon as you think you have a handle on the situation, everything explodes in another direction. The winter season is going to be unlike anything we’ve had on Teen Wolf so far, and we fully expect to have lost our minds by the time episode 24 roles around.

Jeff Davis said that Scott, Allison and Stiles would feel the effects of darkening their hearts through the ritual sacrifice in August’s finale, and having just screened the Teen Wolf season premiere — titled Anchors — I can confirm that the freakin’ understatement of this century.

The hour was easily the most tension-filled in series history, and to help make sense of it all — and coax my heart rate down to a more reasonable BPM — I’ve culled a couple of teases for the hour to get your pulses racing.

Nightmares See The Light of Day
Straight up, the 7-minute cold open is Teen Wolf at its cinematic finest. Opening on a sweaty Stiles in bed (yes, you read that right), we’re immediately thrust into his waking nightmare; possibly an unfortunate side effect of the ritual that only gets worse as the episode passes. Poor Stiles can’t tell the difference between reality and his dreams, which has him living in a constant state of fear.

Things aren’t much better for Scott or Allison, who are both experiencing their own worst nightmares (Scott is struggling to keep his wolf at bay and Allison’s hunter instincts are coming out at the worst possible moments). Davis previously announced this year’s big mystery would revolve around a Kitsune, a Japanese trickster fox, so how much of the trio’s terror stems from their ritual and how much of it stems from that manipulative minx remains to be seen.

Stiles Isn’t The Only Stilinski In Danger
Having learned the truth about Beacon Hills last season, Sheriff Stilinski sets out to revisit many of his “closed” cases to see if there were supernatural elements at play. Spoiler Alert: There are … and monsters don’t often like to be tracked by the po-po.

Creatures aren’t the only source of Stilinski fear as this season sets up Dad vs. Dad with Scott’s suddenly very present papa gunning to unseat the sheriff for incompetence.

This weekend at New York Comic-Con Dylan O’Brien opened up about what The Maze Runner movie delay means for the series.

As reported last weekend, Fox has pushed the release date for The Maze Runner to September 19, 2014. Although fans of the book series were disappointed by the news, O’Brien stresses that this announcement is a positive move for the series as a whole.

“It means the studio is backing it, and you know, they want to give Wes, the director, and the visual effects team all the time that they need to make the movie the best version it can be,” O’Brien said in comments recorded by Hypable at NYCC on Sunday. “I think it’s so smart what they did.”

The leading actor of the dystopian thriller goes on to say that being rushed with a movie of this size isn’t what fans should want. “I mean, we wrapped in July, and having it release in February, a big action and visual effects dystopian movie, would be kind of insane. So I think it’s great that we’re going to be able to take the time now to make it as good as it can be. The best version of the film it can be.”

In addition, O’Brien reveals that the extended amount of time will give the Maze Runner team more opportunity for press and promotion. “We get to do Comic-Con San Diego next year, which we wouldn’t have gotten to do otherwise, so that’ll be good too.”

Between this news and the announcement that the Maze Runner sequel script for The Scorch Trials is being developed, fans of the franchise should be comforted that Fox is giving the series as much attention as it can afford.
