Okay, I promised in this part I’d explain the chess board, and I didn’t quite realise what I was setting out to do when I said that. Because boy howdy, this meta is chock to the brim with my outlandish theories of what’s actually happening. You might disagree with my reading, and that’s totally okay. I’d love to read your take on it; you might convince me to change my mind. :)
Part A isn’t focused on Derek and Stiles (although I do still talk about them), as it’s giving background on the politics of Teen Wolf, especially the druids. In Part B, I’ll look at the chess board itself in light of the politics, and show how Derek and Stiles fit.
