Teen Wolf Kira Returns

Teen Wolf Boss Previews Kira's Return, Talks 'Anxious Separation' From Scott

Arden Cho makes her long-awaited return to Teen Wolf this Tuesday (MTV, 9/8c), and although every other couple seems to be falling by the wayside, you’ll be happy to know that Scott and Kira are “still together.”

Those words come straight from executive producer Jeff Davis, who refers to the couple’s time apart as an “anxious separation,” one Scott is still “very worried about.”

“When we pick up with Kira, you’ll see just where Mexico has taken her to try to fix the problem of the fox spirit taking over,” Davis tells TVLine. As you’ll recall, Kira was going full-on Goku the last time we saw her.

Unfortunately, Kira’s isn’t the only familiar face we’ll be seeing. As teased in the trailer for Season 5B, an Oni demon will also rear its ugly head. (Meanwhile, Stiles just started puking himself up at the mere mention of Oni demons.)

“The Oni is part of a test that Kira goes through out in the desert,” Davis explains.

That’s a little bit longer of a reconciliation. We didn’t want to just patch things up in one episode.”
