So, I have a trillion ideas and theories concerning season 6 right now and I have to spit them out so here you go!
-It can’t be a coincidence that there is a polish family and Nazi werewolf in Beacon Hills. I think this is actually extremely significant.
-It’s also significant that the alpha werewolf was badly burned before being taken by the dread doctors. It’s why he uses Helium to aid his breathing.
-Elias Stilinski spent his time in the war quite literally “burning bridges.” His job was blow up any bridges to halt movement of any kind.
-It’s quite possible that said burned alpha Nazi werewolf could have been killed in an explosion set by Elias. Maybe?
-Most of the intro features clips from season 3, particularly the second half which was very much centered around WWII.
-Eichen House used to be the remnants of a fictional internment camp called Oak Creek, which held many Japanese and Korean people. Another connection to WWII and the victimization of a very specific group of people.
-The two people that Lydia has seen in her visions have been an older woman, quite possibly old enough to be a first generation survivor of the Holocaust, and an Asian woman who could be a 2nd generation survivor of the Oak Creek internment camp.
-In literature, trains are often used to symbolize a spiritual journey, a departure, or a journey to the afterlife. This would make the train station a sort of “inbetween” state for the souls there. For example, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Kings Cross train station is used in this way. It’s the place you dwell in while your fate is decided. Will you take the train and move on? Or choose a different path?
-Historically, trains were used to transport the Nazi Regime’s victims. Anyone and everyone outside their strict ideal of perfection was transported to concentration camps by train. Many 1st and 2nd generation survivors cannot stand to be inside a railway car or confined space for this very reason. It’s interesting that they specifically chose a train station paired with the rest of the storyline.
-There’s been a recurring theme concerning the human soul. Mr. Douglas is taking the pineal gland from the brain of his victims. As Chris said, it’s considered the seat of the soul. Therefore he’s stealing souls. In mythology The Wild Hunt sweeps through towns taking the souls of all those they came across. Two people in Beacon Hills stealing souls? What’s the connection?
-The Germans have their own version of The Wild Hunt as well, which I think could be important. It’s very similar to the Welsh/Irish one, but there are variations as to who the leader of The Wild Hunt truly is.
-Theories concerning the Sluagh have been very popular this season and I’m on board with that. The Sluagh is very much associated with The Wild Hunt and would easily fit into the storyline. The security system for the supernatural unit of Eichen House was compromised in season 5 when Stiles and Lydia visited Valyk in his cell. The Dread Doctors were able to enter, therefore it’s very possible that the Sluagh could have escaped, especially as it can disguise itself through use of the faces of lost or damaged souls.
-It’s very possible that fake-Claudia (I do not believe that she’s really Claudia), is the Sluagh. Claudia suffered from frontotemporal dementia, which destroyed her memories and her reality. It’s possible that her soul constitutes as as a lost or damaged soul because of the state of her mind when she passed away. Plus, remember how the pineal gland is the seat of the soul? Is it possible that her pineal gland was affected by the deterioration of her brain, therefore damaging her soul?
-Claudia loved her son. We don’t know much about Noah and Claudia’s life together prior to her death, but I do believe that she wanted and loved Stiles. If Noah’s memory/dream is anything to go by, then we know that she wanted kids. The “Claudia” we’ve seen in season 6 doesn’t fit the picture of Claudia we’ve been given. She seems possessive of Noah and somewhat aggressive towards all of the others. When Noah gets to the station and is told his wife is there to see him in 6x02, he seems surprised for a moment, even confused. The Wild Hunt may be able to remove people from reality, but they can’t bring people to life. I think the Sluagh is using Claudia as a tool to halt the search for Stiles and the other victims.
-I have a theory about Claudia that I haven’t seen yet and although it doesn’t necessarily relate to the storyline right now, it could factor in later. Stiles has always blamed himself for his mother’s death. But, why would he blame himself if it was the dementia that killed her? In season 5, in Stiles’ memory/vision/dream from his past, his mother appears to be suffering from what Lydia would call “sundowning.’ She has difficulty separating reality from the disease, leaving her vulnerable and lost. Before Stiles’s dad appears on the roof, Claudia attempts to hurt Stiles and then accuses him of wanting her dead. During that moment, she’s standing on the edge of the roof. I’ve always wondered if Claudia committed suicide. It would explain why Stiles feels guilty despite her death not being his fault at all. But, I could see Stiles blaming himself for being present in the hospital when her death occurred and I could understand his fears that his father would blame him as well. If that were true, it would be even more reason for the Sluagh to take her form.
These are just my ramblings and thoughts on season 6 of Teen Wolf. I’m a nutter, I know lol I literally just vomited my thoughts onto paper without even editing or reading over it, so hopefully this makes sense. If you have any thoughts on what I’ve said or just other theories and ideas, please send them my way! I’d love to see what other people are thinking.
Isn’t it awkward when someone asks you what your hobbies are/what do you do in your free time… like what should I answer to that? Watch animes and cry over 2D fictional characters? Stare at the ceiling all day long? Do completely nothing but exist? Make graphics?? Do you even know what graphics are? Procrastinate?? ?? What do you expect from me…
