Read more to find out about Crystal Reed's character, Allison Argent.
Allison Argent was the daughter of hunters Chris Argent and Victoria Argent and a main character on MTV’s series, 'Teen Wolf.' Allison was an accomplished archer and gymnast and knew nothing of her family's secret hunting of supernatural creatures. Allison struggled with her self-confidence and berated herself every time she felt helpless and weak. However, when her family arrived in Beacon Hills, she made friends with Lydia Martin, Jackson Whittemore, and Stiles Stilinski and became romantically involved with Scott McCall. Her aunt, Kate Argent had revealed the family secret and she learned of her boyfriend's werewolf nature.
In the series, she was left at a crossroads between her family obligations and her friends, particularly Scott. After dealing with grief from her mother's death, Allison decides to break up with Scott and spend the summer in France with her dad. When they returned to Beacon Hills, they tried to put their hunting days behind them. However, the emergence of The Alpha Pack and the Darach had them fight once more. Allison then instilled a new code; "We protect those who cannot protect themselves." Following her sacrifice to ignite the Nemeton and save her dad, she suffered hallucinations of Kate before closing the door to her mind by embracing her confidence. When a Nogitsune possessed Stiles, she helped find a way to save him. Unfortunately, during a skirmish with Oni, Allison is mortally wounded and, in Scott's arms, confesses that she still loved him before dying.
The new trailer of the upcoming movie not only teased the return of Reed's character but also alluded to the return of the very thing that caused her death, the Nogitsune. The Nogitsune was the main antagonist of season three, and notably the most terrifying creature in the series as a whole. The creature is based on the Japanese myth of the kitsune, but voided, meaning that this spirit thrives on chaos and pain. As it is revealed in the trailer that the Nogitsune has returned to Beacon Hills, it leaves open the probable idea that Allison's body is actually possessed by the creature.
'Teen Wolf: The Movie' is scheduled to be released on Paramount+ on January 26, 2023.
