‘Teen Wolf’ Creator Jeff Davis: ‘Death Happens And Everyone Else Is Left Behind’
Funnily enough, in our post about the shocking death on The Good Wife, we likened it to Allison’s. Well, in Jeff’s interview with Andy Swift from TVLine on March 25, he also brought up The Good Wife! When asked about his choice to kill Allison off rather than send her away, Jeff told the outlet:
“We’d debated it many different ways, actually. The show is growing up, and it’s just like what they did on The Good Wife; it’s shocking and it changes the show. Death happens and everyone else is left behind. It spins the characters and the story in new directions. To be honest, we struggled to think of a reason why Allison would leave Beacon Hills. This was more true to her character. She’s not the kind of person who would just say, ‘OK, guys, I’m out of here. Take care.’ It was a powerful, painful moment. “
