Dylan O'Brien fans shouldn't worry. The man behind Teen Wolf's sarcastic sidekick is convalescing nicely, and despite his conspicuous absence at the series' San Diego Comic-Con panel, his role in the series final season is a vital as ever.
O'Brien (Stiles) suffered a "concussion, facial fracture and lacerations" while filming for The Maze Runner: The Death Cure in March, effectively sidelining him for the remainder of the spring. While the actor has kept silent about his recovery, Tyler Posey (Scott) recently assured fans that his co-star is in good spirits.
"I was a pretty traumatic accident. He's definitely taking some time to heal, you know. He did get a surgery. The boy just needs the love," Posey told Clevver TV, commending fans for all their support. "He's doing really well. I saw him the other day, [he's] still as happy as ever and full of love. Just keep sending out those positive thoughts, positive love to make sure he heals right and comes back soon."
Season 6 will prove to be a monumental time for both Stiles and Scott, particularly as the former will find himself a victim of the nefarious Ghost Riders. Capable of erasing their victims from reality, the season's big bads will wipe Scott's BFF from memory. In light of this development, the series will come full circle as it spends its final run with Sciles at the fore (even if O'Brien will be MIA for at least two episodes).
"Stiles and Scott also have that undeniable, unbreakable bond that just continues to grow each season and it holds truer to this season," Posey explained. "You just see them the most comfortable, the most relaxed with one another, and just the most love across the board for the both of them between each other...It's fully relating what happens between me and Dylan in real life."
