Just as Derek and his pack of misfits were ready to sink their teeth into Lydia during this week’s episode of “Teen Wolf,” they–and we–learned that she actually wasn’t the Kanima. Much to everyone’s surprise, or not (some of you are truly psychic!), the terrifying creature‘s identity belonged to none other than Jackson. Following the show, we asked fans whether or not he should be killed, and viewers had a lot to say about Jackson’s new role as the Kanima. Here’s a sample of what was posted on Remote Control and Facebook, plus, check out the exclusive video above for a glimpse of what goes into the human-to-lizard transformation.
“Does anyone remember that in Season 1 we were told Jackson was adopted? Hmmm, I think we are going to find that his birth parents may have a role in why he turned into the Kanima.” — mollym1839
“I knew it. Deleting those two hours of footage was just too suspicious, and when we saw that his senses were heightened, it just added to the table of whys. Still, I’m curious who’s the person that touched his hand (claw) through the window. He seems like somebody who wants to protect the Kanima…I hope that they won’t kill Jackson.” — Miška
“I still don’t understand how he’s a reptile, he had to be bit by another reptile right? Wolf bites don’t turn into reptiles.” — Aaron
“Has anyone noticed anything about the Kanimas? The one that attacked Allison was darkish, Jackson’s Kanima is greener, and the one at the pool was almost a brownish color? So wouldn’t that be three Kanimas? So Jackson, maybe Lydia, and whoever connected with Jackson in that car.” — Tyler
“Does this mean the only way Jackson can be cured is by killing the one that bit him, aka Derek? This makes me sad, because I don’t want any of the main characters to die…maybe Allison’s grandpa or mom, but that’s it.” — Angel
+ These “Teen Wolf” fans have voiced a ton of questions and theories on Jackson’s character development, but what are YOUR thoughts? Should Jackson be saved? Is it possible he’s not the only Kanima slithering around Beacon Hills? Sound off in the comments and keep the conversation going!
