The pack is coming back together on “Teen Wolf” Season 5B, and that means Lydia (Holland Roden) will be free soon. Once she is out of Eichen House, she’ll reunite with her friends, including Stiles (Dylan O’Brien). Though the resident human on “Teen Wolf” isn’t head-over-heels for the banshee anymore, they’ll still bond on the MTV drama.
Roden teased that Stydia shippers will have plenty of scenes to obsess over soon. The two seniors "grow closer this season."
"They learn to appreciate each other, and what they’ve been through," Roden told TVLine. "There are some key moments that I think will make people happy."
That doesn’t mean that an epic romance is on the way yet. Roden clarified that they’re still just friends. “Stiles and Lydia definitely work on their friendship this season I think because they just realize how much they’ve been through together,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
Stiles’ ex, Malia (Shelley Hennig), is also still in the picture. Not only is she in the pack again, but it sounds like she is going to bond with Lydia.
“I would say Malia is also somebody that she warms up to as well,” Roden added. “They all realize they’re after the same goal and so there’s really no reason to make enemies.”
Still, fans should expect some romance in Lydia’s life — but the actress wouldn’t reveal who her love interest is. “I feel like I always get in trouble with the Lydia romance questions,” she teased to Hollywood Life. “I can say that there are some romantic scenes for Lydia this season, but I cannot say with who.” Will her friendship with Stiles evolve or will she continue her flirtation with Deputy Parrish (Ryan Kelley)?
Before that happens, she needs to escape the mental hospital. Stiles and the pack will break her out of Eichen House in episodes 15 and 16, but as previously reported, Theo (Cody Christian) will also be after her in the two-parter. Hopefully, the good guys can get to her before the chimeras do.
“Teen Wolf” Season 5B airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
