“Teen Wolf” Season 3 won’t premiere until 2013, but in the meantime, executive producer Jeff Davis is keeping MTV updated with small spoilers to keep us sated while we wait. This week, he’s talking about the wolves’ eye color. As die-hard fans of the show know, Alpha wolves have red eyes, while Scott (Tyler Posey) always had eyes that glow amber. Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) and Jackson (Colton Haynes) had glowing blue eyes — at least, until Derek became an Alpha.
So what does it all mean? We’re going to find out. “it has nothing to do with DNA or being a born werewolf,” Davis says, putting to rest the rumor and speculation stirring in the fandom. “Next season, during an important flashback episode, you’ll learn why some werewolves have blue eyes and others do not.”
The flashback episode is centered around Derek as a youth, and will help us learn more about his mysterious past.
Davis also revealed that Posey’s new tattoo would factor in to the season. Posey got two thick bands inked onto his arm this summer, and instead of going to the effort to cover them with makeup (like he does with the rest of Posey’s ink), Davis decided to integrate the tats into the story in a major way.
“The two bands on his arm have a major significance in the first episode,
even providing the thematic foundation for the story. Part of the
tattoo, the musical note, will still have to be covered up, however,” Davis says.
