Teen Wolf Season 2
The second season of Teen Wolf, an American supernatural drama created by Jeff Davis based upon the 1985 film of the same name, premiered on June 3, 2012, and concluded on August 13, 2012, on the MTV network. The season featured 12 episodes.
Teen Wolf Season 2
Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and Allison Argent (Crystal Reed) conceal their renewed relationship from Allison's parents, who oppose it because they know Scott is a werewolf. Lydia Martin (Holland Roden) suffers chronic hallucinations since bitten by Peter Hale (Ian Bohen), now dead because Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin) killed him to become the new Alpha werewolf. Derek recruits abused teen Isaac Lahey (Daniel Sharman) into his pack. Jackson Whittemore (Colton Haynes), bitten by Derek Hale at the end of Season 1, shows signs of rejecting Derek's bite, but the reason is a mystery. As Allison's grandfather Gerard Argent (Michael Hogan) comes to town for his daughter Kate Argent's (Jill Wagner) funeral, he decides to avenge her death by declaring war against all werewolves, innocent or not.
Jackson is revealed to be the Kanima, controlled by an unknown master who can make it kill or otherwise harm on orders. Lydia discovers that the Mysterious Young Boy (Michael Fjordbak) she hallucinated about does not exist and is actually a younger Peter Hale. Although dead, Peter is able to use her to lure Derek to him at the old Hale house in order to become resurrected. To save Scott from danger after Victoria Argent learns Scott and Allison are still together, Derek ends up biting Victoria, who commits suicide before she turns into a werewolf. Blaming Derek for his daughter's death, Gerard manipulates Allison's grief over her dead mother, making Allison become a ruthless hunter.
Gerard drowns Matt and becomes the Kanima/Jackson's new master. Derek learns from Peter that the Kanima's weakness is the love interest of its human form, in this case Lydia. Jackson is hospitalized whilst developing a new stage of the Kanima, whereby he ends up in the hands of his former friends. Boyd and Erica try to flee from Derek for their own safety, but are captured and tortured by hunters. Realizing his father, Gerard, corrupted his daughter Allison, Chris Argent (JR Bourne) helps Scott and his allies stop the Kanima from evolving. Gerard tries to confront the group by forcing Derek to bite him and cure his cancer, but Scott reveals he switched his medication with mountain ash. Gerard's body rejects the bite and he quickly disappears. Before the Kanima/Jackson can kill Allison, Lydia reaches out to him and saves him with her love. He evolves in to a new werewolf, as the Kanima is now dead.
Kali, Ennis, Ethan and Aiden make a brief appearance in the season finale, "Master Plan", as the members of the Alpha Pack that kidnapped Boyd and Erica. As of Season 3, they become recurring characters, with their leader Deucalion introduced in "Tattoo", the first episode. These characters are played by Gideon Emery (Deucalion), Brian Patrick Wade (Ennis), Felisha Terrell (Kali), Charlie Carver (Ethan) and Max Carver (Aiden).
Shooting of season two began in early December 2011 and finished in late April 2012. The second season premiered after the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on June 3, 2012, and will follow the same airing schedule as the first season.
Michael Hogan has been cast as Allison's grandfather, Gerard, a lethal werewolf hunter who attempts to convince her to join the family business and aims to avenge his daughter's murder by killing all werewolves. Stephen Lunsford has been cast as Matt, a teenager with an eye for photography who has taken a stalkerish liking towards Allison. Daniel Sharman has been cast as Isaac Lahey, a troubled teen and member of the lacrosse team who is the first to join Derek's pack. Gage Golightly has been cast as Erica Reyes, the first female werewolf in Derek's pack. Sinqua Walls has been cast as Boyd, the third and final member of Derek's pack.
The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 90% and an average rating of 7.84/10 for the second season, based on 10 reviews. The website's critics consensus reads, "This lupine romp gains swagger in its sophomore outing, nailing an addictive mix of soapy melodrama and horror thrills."
Isaac is the first to be turned. Isaac comes from a background of tragedy and abuse. His older brother, a solider, died in combat and presumably his grief stricken father takes his anger out on Isaac. Out of the three, Isaac is probably the most loyal to Derek, who basically takes care of him after his father is murdered by another monster called the Kanima. He has the most control over his wolf-powers and turns out to be invaluable asset.
Towards the end of Teen Wolf season 2, as Jackson transforms into a Kanima after being bitten by Derek, it seems likely that he will have a bigger role to play in season 3's overarching plot. However, instead of returning as one of the main characters, he surprisingly flees to London with his parents and does not come back until the finale. Because of its hefty runtime, Teen Wolf has a longstanding history of inexplicably eradicating prominent characters like Teen Wolf's Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) and Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) - among others. However, Jackson's exit is strange, considering how Teen Wolf season 2 sets him up as a potential season 3 villain.
In his memoir, Miss Memory Lane (via E!Online), Colton Haynes reveals that his early retirement from Teen Wolf can be attributed to many factors. One of the biggest reasons that contributed to it was the reduction in his pay after season 2. He recalls that the group representing him back then was stirring trouble and making things "a living hell" for Teen Wolf's production team, which later reflected on his pay. Since the offered salary did not meet his expectations and demands, the actor chose not to return for Teen Wolf season 3.
The last few episodes of Teen Wolf season 6 wrap the show's epic run by featuring many returning characters. Colton Haynes' Jackson Whittemore happens to be one of them. In Teen Wolf season 6, episode 17, titled "Werewolves in London," Jackson Whittemore is reinstated in the show's timeline as Ethan's partner. After a having slam-bang showdown with the hunters in London, he finds himself heading back to Beacon Hills, where he ultimately ends up joining forces with Scott and his wolfpack. Together, they set out on a mission to form an army and defeat Gerard Argent. By including many old cast members, Teen Wolf's finale brings a satisfying closure to its previously ambiguous story arcs and establishes that although many characters like Jackson drifted away from the pack, their paths were bound to cross again in times of need.
Boyd and Erica are running through the woods, hotly pursued by the WEREWOLF HUNTERS on quad bikes. They seem not to have mastered that wolf-run thing that Scott does. Allison jumps off the quad bike and shoots Erica in the leg with an arrow. Erica tells Boyd to run as Allison comes closer to finish the job.
While things only go upward from the lows of Season 4, Teen Wolf Season 5 has its share of issues, too. The Dread Doctors are an atmospheric and effectively scary baddie, but the explanation of their power and the implementation of their experiments to the overall storyline lacks a bit. Diving back into a little more Nemeton lore was a good time though, especially since the last time we were involved with that supernaturally superpowered tree stump, ice baths were involved. Ultimately, Season 5 is more interesting than the human hunters of Season 4, but not quite as immersive an experience as the seasons that rank a little higher. Speaking of which...
Jackson played a larger part in season two of "Teen Wolf," serving as an antagonist after he transformed into a reptile-like shape-shifter called a Kanima. So, when multiple publications reported in October 2012 that he wouldn't return for season three, fans were surprised.
At the time, E! News reported that Haynes' reason for leaving "Teen Wolf" was due to failed contract negotiations. An anonymous source told the publication that the actor was offered appearances in half of season three's episodes, as opposed to the full season.
Haynes did eventually return to "Teen Wolf" as a guest star for two episodes as part of the show's final season. He's set to reprise his role for a continuation film starring most of the original cast and set for release on Paramount+ later this year.
Jackson Whittemore, also known as the "Kanima", is an anti-hero in season 1 of Teen Wolf, and a major antagonist in Season 2. He is a bully to the main character Scott McCall, as well as one of the most popular kids in Beacon Hills High School. In season 2, he became the Kanima, a form of shapeshifter that is the mutation of the werewolf gene. During that season, he is controlled by Matt Daehler and later Gerard Argent.
The next day, Jackson visits Dr. Conrad Fenris to have the wounds checked out. The doctor says he has aconite (wolfsbane) poisoning but the injury is healing. After Searching Wolfsbane on Mrs. Mcall's computer, he finally figures out Scott's secret. He blackmails Scott to make him a werewolf as well in exchange for not telling Allison. He takes advantage of Scott's enhanced hearing ability by whispering to him and threatening to ruin his life if he didn't give him what he wanted. In addition to the physical symptoms, the scratches glowed when The Alpha was near.
Chris Argent tampers with Jackson's car in order to force a breakdown as an excuse to approach the boy and question him. Derek wants to get Jackson out of the way so that he cannot expose Scott, but Scott intervenes. Scott forces Jackson to take Allison to their formal dance, since he's not allowed to go. While there, he drinks, and sees red lights in the woods. Thinking it's the Alpha he begs to be transformed. Instead, it is Chris Argent. He then tells them that Scott is the other Beta. In the season finale, Jackson helps Lydia get aid for her injuries. Then he helps Scott, Stiles, Allison, and Derek defeat Peter Hale , the Alpha Werewolf. He then goes to the Hale House to ask Derek for the bite. 041b061a72
