"Teen Wolf" season 3 continues next week with episode 19, "Letharia Vulpina," for which MTV released a new sneak preview Monday, Feb. 10, during this week's "Wolf Watch."
This week's "Riddled" saw Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) battle his inner demons and by episode's end answer the riddle he hadn't been able to earlier: "Everyone has it, but no one can lose it. What is it?" The answer: "A shadow." Then dark Stiles came face-to-face with Kira's mother and two Oni, but he wasn't worried. "If the Oni can't defeat you, I know someone who will," she warned him before the next shot showed Kira (Arden Cho). However, Kira had her own problems as a live wire came swinging at her from the hospital roof, thanks to something Stiles had done while he had been struggling with himself up there. Plus, what were those voicemails on Allison's phone?
The "Letharia Vulpina" promo shows the others trying to figure out how to help Stiles. "Stiles really do this?" Allison asks Scott. "Whatever's controlling him did it," he says. So how do they get it out of him?
Also seen in the promo is someone driving towards Kira in the parking lot as the wire comes toward her, Peter (Ian Bohen) on the floor of the loft screaming, an explosion at the police station, Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) and Mr. Argent (JR Bourne) facing off, Coach (Orny Adams) injured in the woods, Scott in the rain, wolfed out, and Kira with a sword. Plus, there's Peter saying, "The nogitsune feeds off chaos, strife and pain. Now give it to me."
Here's an interesting fact: Letharia Vulpina (commonly known as wolf lichen, though "vulpina" relates to the fox) is a fungus that has been used as a poison for wolves and foxes.
"Teen Wolf" season 3 airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on MTV. What do you think of this episode 19 "Letharia Vulpina" promo?
