By now, all Teen Wolf fans know — or should know — that Crystal Reed‘s Allison Argent was last night’s much-hyped victim. And in a fairly surprising interview with EW.com, Reed says the decision to exit the show was completely her own.
“I felt like, creatively, there were things I wanted to do differently, and I wanted to explore other avenues of film and TV,” Reed tells the site. “I wanted to jump into different characters. You know, I’m 29. So I think the age difference was something I wanted to change as well because she’s 17. I love the show so much. So I went to [executive producer Jeff Davis] and talked about it and he said, ‘We’ll write you a great ending.'”

And here’s another shocker: Allison’s dying speech to Scott, in which she admitted to still loving him, was also Reed’s idea.
“I kept saying, ‘I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you,'” Reed recalls of filming her final scene. “And I remember one of the producers came over and said, ‘Please don’t say that because she loves Isaac.’ [But] I do feel like Allison still loves Scott. And I think in that moment, she said she loves him because that’s still there.”
You’ve got to hand it to Reed, she knows how to make an exit.
