Teen Wolf Stiles Lydia

Teen Wolf: Holland Roden Teases 'Key' Stiles Moments, Defends Lydia's Mom

Scott’s pack is busting Lydia out of Eichen House on tonight’s Teen Wolf (MTV, 9/8c), and not a moment too soon if you ask me — or star Holland Roden.

You’ll be happy to know that, although Roden admits she enjoyed some aspects of life at Eichen House (“Insane-Asylum Lydia gets to wear sweatpants!”), she’s just as glad as you are that the time jump-y show is finally catching up to itself.

“I can’t tell you how many times I had to repeat the same scenes in different sequences from different angles over and over and over,” she tells TVLine. “I was like, ‘If I’m not trained for a David Fincher movie right now, I don’t know what will train me for it.’ I did that scene for over a year, the one where I’m in the bed with Valack.”

And before you judge Lydia’s mom too harshly for shipping her off to a facility fit for American Horror Story, Roden clarifies that Mrs. Martin’s portrayer, Susan Walters, also takes issue with her character’s ignorance.

Recalls Roden, “Susan was saying, ‘This place needs cleaning! I would never leave her here!’ But we needed someone to get her back to Eichen House. And she’s not like Stilinski; she doesn’t know what’s really going on in her child’s life.”

So, what’s next for Lydia after her pals bust her out? A lot, apparently.

“Lydia’s definitely one of the main probes that concludes the season,” Roden teases. “She’s going to be one of the main causes of bringing all of these big villains together.”

But first: Get pumped, “Stydia” ‘shippers! Though Stiles’ schoolboy crush on Lydia has fizzled out, Roden says the two “grow closer this season. hey learn to appreciate each other, and what they’ve been through. There are some key moments that I think will make people happy.”

Are you glad Lydia is finally breaking free? And are you excited to see her (platonic) reunion with Stiles? Drop a comment with all of your thoughts below.

    I’m concerned about how much they are selling Lydia breaks out tonight because, well, Jeff Davis has been telling us its a two part episode. That just means to me that we have a lot to get to before the Pack reaches Lydia (I suspect that part that entered 5B will be, if not the opener tonight, but it’ll be early but we will probably flash back to how Jordan gets there and what exactly he does) and it will take the boys a second or two to figure out (it sounds like Stiles, Scott and Liam go first) that they technically need Kira to help out even though she is dangerous at Eichen House, she disrupts the supernatural barriers and since they know what might happen to her, its how Stiles gets separated because the shapeshifters agree to share the harm that comes to them getting Kira out.

    I’m glad they’re finally getting lydia out of eichen. I can’t wait for stydia to finally happen :)

    Stiles better be the one that breaks her out. If it turns out to be Parrish that does it I’m going to lose it. I don’t care if Lydia is now 18, I’m sick of TV shows condoning people of authority (cops/teachers) getting with hs students. Parrish and his sick fantasy are so uncomfortable to watch.

    I hate to admit it, but I just deleted Teen Wolf from DVR. I loved it from the start, but this season is just terrible. The gang has broken up. The bad guys are indestructible. I fast forward the horrible Lydia scenes by herself in the mental ward. The show has lost everything that I loved about it. I miss Derek too! Maybe I will give next season a chance, but I’m done with this season. The only plus was bringing the Argents back, but it was not enough to save it for me.
