For those of you who don’t know: I’m Deaf and American Sign Language is my primary language.
Which is why I really really like this new preview of 3B. It fills me with happiness to see ASL on Teen Wolf.
And so, I am here to translate the preview for you guys.
Keep in mind, however, that this may not be 100% accurate. The signs used are vague (which is most likely intentional).
I did show the video to my mother, who is an ASL teacher, and she agrees with my translation.
Here’s what the Deaf girl, Finstock, and the rest of the class was saying:
“When the door closes, don’t open it."
This is clearly a warning. Just what it’s for, however, is what intrigues me. Is it a literal warning? Or a metaphorical one? Can’t wait to see the discussion that’ll rise from this.
This, along with the tagline for 3B - Lose Your Mind - gives me high hopes for the season. It’s going to be interesting where it’s going to go.
Bring it on, Teen Wolf.

I get the whole thing about the anchors and the pairing. I totally understand that Deaton had to be paired with Scott since Scott is the only one of the three that he has any kind of emotional bond to. Which leaves Isaac and Lydia to Allison and Stiles, and there’s no way that Isaac and Stiles had a strong enough bond to pull Stiles back from death. So, Allison/Isaac and Stiles/Lydia makes perfect sense. Plus, an emotional bond is not indicative of a deep abiding love, but rather some sort of solid emotional connection; friendship, mutual understanding would have worked just as well. What I don’t understand though is how Allison and Isaac went from being awkward around one another since she stabbed him with her Chinese ring daggers to having an emotional connection. When did this bonding happen? I get that she apologized and they acknowledged and accepted each other’s flaws - he understands her attack and kept her secret, she understands why he nearly attacked her when locked in the supply closet - but when did it get to be any more than just that?
Maybe I’m wrong but I think that this relationship, whether romantic or platonic in nature, is moving way too quickly.
It just hurts that no one, not even his Pack members, understands Derek. They don’t see his guilt or his pain or his loneliness. They just assume that he’s doing things, turning broken kids, pushing them away, dating a killer, because he’s bored, but it’s really not that at all.
I’m still not over the feeling of Isaac switching loyalty between Alphas. Granted, Derek’s not an Alpha anymore, which begs the question of who is since he didn’t exactly have his power stolen from him in the traditional way? Will he have to pledge loyalty to someone else’s pack? Scott’s, maybe, or even Duecalion, or will he just be an omega? While I can understand why Isaac would prefer Scott over Derek, it still feels like a betrayal to me, especially after his long-winded and somewhat, uncalled for, verbal abuse of Derek.
I just have a lot of feelings for Derek Hale and his guilt and selflessness. Forgive me.
I am so in love with Jennifer Blake.
and suddenly, “Mom would have believed me” takes on a whole new and painful meaning.
"Watch Teen Wolf" they said, "it’d be fun" they said…
Almost half a season later, we finally get the name of the girl.
