While Allison Argent (Crystal Reed) wasn’t in all six seasons of Teen Wolf, she had a profound effect on the audience. Forever remaining one of the most likable characters on Teen Wolf, fans absolutely loved both watching her grow into a strong and empowered hunter and witnessing her epic, star-crossed lovers’ romance with Scott McCall (Tyler Posey).
Although Allison became more closed off as her story progressed, one thing she never hid was her feelings for Scott. While they may have broken up at the end of season 2 (and Allison began other romances), it was clear that the love she had for Scott still remained as she always spoke about him with fondness and love. Maybe it’s because Scott was her first love or one of her best friends, but Allison was somewhat of a romantic wordsmith when he was around.
In the initial stages of their relationship, fans get a bit of insight as to what drew Allison to Scott in the first place. In a conversation with Lydia Martin (Holland Roden), Allison reveals that she felt an instant connection to Scott different from anything she had experienced before. In fact, it was so great that it literally made Allison change all the plans and goals she had for the year.
Allison’s confession is certainly relatable too as many people are often describing how love can be unpredictable and spontaneous. A person might not be able to fully comprehend what draws them to this feeling or even understand it, but that doesn’t mean they’re not enjoying what she is experiencing.
While Allison’s loyalty was tested between her family and Scott’s pack in season 2, the young hunter reassured her boyfriend that he was the person she trusted most in the world.
This was quite a big deal for Allison since the majority of her life had involved her family keeping huge secrets from her. While Scott had also kept his fair share of secrets too, what mattered most to Allison was the fact that he actually wanted to tell her the truth. Telling Scott that she trusted him more than anyone in her life was somewhat of a romantic gesture since he genuinely believed that he would have lost her because of the things he kept from her.
Although this quote came in the midst of a Scott and Allison fight, there is sort of a sweet meaning within the conversation as fans realize that Allison has started to notice some of Scott’s quirks and tells.
Paralleling a similar scene from earlier in the episode, where Scott told Allison she knew when she was lying, she also told Scott that she knew when he did too. At this point in time, the pair had only been dating for two months, so for her to notice even the smallest of details was quite sweet. It showed that she really was invested in their relationship and learning everything about him.
Allison ended up having one of the saddest death scenes in Teen Wolf after she was fatally wounded by the Oni. Nevertheless, just before she died, she managed to share one last emotional farewell with Scott, confessing her feelings to him for the last time.
Many fans were devastated at the loss as some were hoping the couple would have got back together down the line. However, this speech did prove one thing. Despite both characters beginning new romances with other people, Allison never stopped loving Scott; something would have always drawn her back to him, so it was fitting that he was by her side when she drew her final breaths.
With tensions between the supernatural and the hunters getting worse in season 2, Scott had a lot on his plate. As Teen Wolf fans saw Scott try to be the best leader he could be for his pack, discover the identity of the Kanima, and control his powers, he needed someone to ground him — which is where Allison came into play.
While Allison knew that Scott couldn’t just sit on the sidelines while people were getting hurt, she did look out for his well-being to make sure he didn’t exhaust himself. She also wanted to remind him that his actions didn’t just affect him, so doing anything impulsive could have consequences for those who loved him most. For the first two seasons, Allison acted as a sort of moral compass for Scott, so her thoughts and advice would often lead to him thinking about a more practical plan. She ultimately made him a better and more mature person.
There’s a reason why so many fans say that Allison and Scott’s romance is the epitome of first love. From the moment they met, they were besotted with one another, refusing to separate because they believed it would be unbearable.
Allison gave everyone an insight into the depth of her feelings when she told Lydia that she couldn’t stop counting down the seconds until they were together again. This was something fans found endearing and cute since it really summed up what it’s like to be young and in love for the first time.
Back in season 2, Allison and Scott continued to take steps in their relationship, with the pair discussing what they would have liked their future to look like.
Not only did Allison show how much her feelings had grown since they first began dating but her confession also showed a lot more maturity too since it seemed that she was contemplating the next stages of their life.
The “Because I love you” declaration became an important staple in Scott and Allison’s relationship, as they would often send notes or messages to one another containing the phrase. However, the most important one for Allison was likely the day she decided to say the words for the first time after seeing Scott in his werewolf form.
Not only does Allison use the exact same words Scott had said earlier, but her romantic profession also marks the point in which Allison fully embraces all parts of Scott, including his supernatural side. Since most people would likely be petrified if they discovered their partner was a werewolf, this was certainly a big milestone in their relationship and one of the most romantic gestures on Teen Wolf.
