Quite a bit of queer subtext can be found in MTV’s Teen Wolf. The series’ portrayal of fluid sexuality and integration of gay characters is a monumental shift for television. (Read our take on it here.) Nevertheless, we’re not going to pretend part of our attraction to the boys of Beacon Hills doesn’t stem from the show’s many skin-filled scenes. The following is a list of the hottest moments from Teen Wolf’s first two seasons guaranteed to change you into a fan for life by the next full moon, or remind you why you already are. WARNING: Major spoilers (and hotness) ahead.
The second season of Teen Wolf instantly lets us know we're in for a mega-dose of eye candy. The opening credits immediately serves the hotness with not only a shirtless Tyler Posey…
Scott attempts to sniff out the unseen werewolf on his lacrosse team and gets horizontal with Danny for a big whiff. “It’s Armani, “ Danny explains, assuming his aftershave is the reason for Scott’s exaggerated sniff. Scott remains close, smiles, and simply replies, “Oh! It’s nice.”
Flexes in the mirror…
And is devastated to find nothing happened in the morning.
Just when we think we’re finally going to get to see Stiles shirtless, Scott opens his locker door at a most inopportune time. That Stiles is such a tease!
After Jackson asks Danny to watch the video of him sleeping to look for anything out of the ordinary, his friend reminds him that he’s not his type. Jackson leans in close and flirtatiously replies, “I’m everyone’s type.”
Following the Kanima into a dance club, Scott and Stiles find themselves surrounded by dancing shirtless hotties and drag queens. The boys quickly realize they’ve stepped foot in a gay club and order a drink at the bar…
Where they’re greeted by hunky shirtless bartenders.
However, Jackson is less than pleased by their selfless act.
Danny, who Jackson attacked in the form of the Kanima at the gay club, recovers at the Beacon Hills Hospital and just happens to be changing his shirt when Scott stops by with a few questions.
Allison investigates strange sounds coming from the boys locker room and walks in on Jackson in his birthday suit.
When Scott finds a naked Jackson confronting Allison in the locker room, he barley gives the guy enough time to slip into a pair of red shorts before beginning a homoerotic beat-down.
In an effort to capture Jackson/the Kanima at a rave, Isaac and Erica attempt to drug him with a syringe full of ketamine, but not before the three of them make out on the dance floor.
Derek locks up his new wolves to watch over them on their first full moon together, but the situation quickly spirals out of control. A battle ensues and Derek’s tight, shredded tank top makes us want to wrestle with a werewolf more than we ever have before.
Recovering from his battle, Derek dreams shirtless – not that we’re complaining.
With the curse of the Kanima now lifted, Jackson rises, (sans clothes), reborn as a new member of the wolf-pack.
