Teen Wolf: Why Allison Was Killed Off In Season 3

Here’s the reason why Allison Argent (Crystal Reed) was killed in Teen Wolf season 3. In 2011, MTV debuted their contemporary take on the 1985 film of the same name starring Michael J. Fox. This time, Tyler Posey plays the show’s titular character — Scott McCall, who became a werewolf after getting accidentally bitten by one during a forest excursion with his best friend, Stiles Stilinski (Dylan O’Brien). While Scott was Teen Wolf’s lead, it was technically an ensemble project, with other characters fans relate to including Allison who became romantically involved with him.

One of the show’s core characters, Teen Wolf developed Allison and Scott’s relationship. Outside of their affair, she was also a great asset to the growing McCall pack due to being skilled with a bow and arrow. Complications came in, however, when Allison learned of her heritage – apparently, she hails from a long line of werewolf hunters, which made her conflicted about her association with Scott. The pair never got back together after that, but she continued to help the pack, especially during the emergence of The Alpha Pack and the Darach. Eventually, she moved on to a new relationship with Isaac Lahey (Daniel Sharman).
Frankly, Teen Wolf could’ve continued playing out Allison and Scott’s relationship amidst their break-up, with the former still having a lot more of interesting stories left to tell for her character. That’s why fans were shocked when she was written out of the show and killed off in the season 3 finale episode titled “Insatiable.” The character went out heroically as she died to a fatal stab wound from an Oni sword. It was a bittersweet farewell to one of the show’s coolest characters, but as it turns out the decision to end Allison’s arc in Teen Wolf wasn’t anyone else’s decision but Reed’s.

As the actress itself explained to EW, she was the one who asked to leave the series. Like other actors who exited Teen Wolf on their own, Reed shared that she wanted to explore more things creatively as she feels the need to do something more age-appropriate considering that Allison is technically 12-years younger than her in real life. The show’s creative team was supportive of her decision, with showrunner Jeff Davis even promising her a great send-off which he followed through considering how Allison went out. “I felt like, creatively, there were things I wanted to do differently, and I wanted to explore other avenues of film and TV. I wanted to jump into different characters. You know, I’m 29. So I think the age difference was something I wanted to change as well because she’s 17. I love the show so much. So I went to [executive producer Jeff Davis] and talked about it and he said, ‘We’ll write you a great ending’,” Reed recalled.

The actress’ next outing after wrapping up Teen Wolf was in the indie film Too Late (2015), she then followed it up with the horror feature, Ghostland (2018). Still, Reed made her way back to the small screen. After a guest appearance, she booked the role of Sofia Falcone on Fox’s prequel DC show, Gotham. She played the character for 14 episodes in season 4. After that, she remained in the comic book TV world nabbing the lead role in DC Universe’s Swamp Thing.
