“Teen Wolf” Season 3 has thrust Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) into leadership in a life-or-death situation. Trouble from the nogitsune and the Oni mean that even Scott’s normal support, Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), may be lost.
Posey talks about the challenges and triumphs — plus a new romance with Kira — for Scott in the second half of the current season.
Is Stiles really evil at this point?
He’s 100 percent evil.
Can Scott believe this of his best friend?
He’s evil now but he still might be Stiles on the inside — Scott’s his best friend, he wouldn’t do anything to Scott and he does. And now it’s like there is no sign of Stiles anymore.
Deep down inside, I think Scott always hopes that Stiles is still in there, but he’s kind of second guessing that now. Really just trying to figure out what the h*** to do because he has no idea what to do, you know, how to get him out of there. He’s really lost because Stiles is his rock.
Now Scott’s growing up a lot and he really has great instincts on things and doesn’t really need the second hand from Stiles, but he’s his best friend overall so it’s definitely a huge impact on him so it’s going to be awkward.
Is Scott going to be able to face the idea that he might have to kill Stiles?
He doesn’t believe it. In the world of ‘Teen Wolf’ and especially in Scott’s world he always sees a second option. Death is never the first option for Scott at least, and he can always, always find and trust in himself that he will always find a second outcome. Because first of all, killing Stiles is not an option for Scott … There’s no way. He will never be able to live with himself.

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.
