Lydia is a BANSHEE

  • what do you guys think about this?

      Loading editor
    • Totally fits Lydia and her massive screams.

        Loading editor
    • Well it explains the screaming. Also why she is immune to becoming a werewolf.  It explains her ability to 'control' or influence others. Not sure about its connection to Jackson. It explains why Jackson had to break up with her by text and he kept trying not to look at her. Sorry my other idea was so wrong. But maybe someone will use it later.

    • I was right! I freaking knew it! There is one thing that I didn't get though; how did Blake know that Lydia was a Banshee? I mean I get that she's the Darach, but not even the Alpha Pack knew and they seem to know everything about everyone.

    • Can someone explain to me what exaclty a banshee is?

        Loading editor
    • A Banshee is almost like a fairy. It's beautiful and intelligent, but screams or wales when death is near. I hope I did a good job of explaining, but if you need more explanations then you can google it and plenty of information will pop up.

    • I just love it when something from a series actually surprises me. Looking back, though, it was TOTALLY expected. We were shown all these Celtic connections like the druid and darach. Guess what? A banshee is actually an omen of death, an agent of the Celtic "Otherworld" (I think that's what their mythology calls it) who screams when death is near. Kudos Teen Wolf creators and writers.

    • @Charinfax I think the Alpha pack knows about banshees. They just didn't think Lydia was one as she hasn't screamed that loud before that particular instance (i.e. attempt on her life). The look of surprise on Derek's face was also quite weird. It looks as though (at least for me) he knows what that particular person (the one screeching) is. I'm not sure though.

      Actually she has screamed that loud before. Remember when she screamed in the Hospital after the Peter hallucination, and Scott heard her wale from Allisons house.

      Well, maybe they do know that she is a banshee, because Aiden keeps telling Ethan that Danny is useless and that they know Lydia is the important one.

    • how is a banshee important to them? if she screams when death is near does that mean before a person dies? so like she can tell when people are going to die but she is always to late at finding them?

    • I think there is more to Lydia than just screaming. I hope the Druids could explain it. I hope she becomes a key figure on Scott becoming a True Alpha.

      I think so becouse she is fighting her gift so in that way is always to late

      I think she can find them before they die becouse she screams when death is near not as or after it happens.

      So I think her and stiles will read more into a banshee and then she will start to learn how to use her gift she has and start saving more people.

        Loading editor
    • Well she told Scott if she had more time to find the person before they die maybe someone like him could stop it from happening.

        Loading editor
    • Dont remember the episode but the prom episode, in season 1 i think, Stiles tells Lydia that he really knows how smart she really is. Then the werewolf bite from Peter Hale healed, but not completely. I believe that was late season one or early season 2. Scott asks Stiles, "what is she?"

      So not just us as veiwers knew she was something, but unsure of what. There were some subtle hints in the other seasons of TW that Lydia was more than human, and not a werewolf. Why they waited to season 3 to explain it, made Lydia Martin's character less of a bitch and more of a team player.

      Now i'm intrigued, does that make Lydia's family Irish, Welsh or Norse? What lineage does she come from? I would like an episode with her back story.

    • Wait, Lydia is a banshee since she born or it is because the bite?

      not the bite ... that's why i'd like an episode on her back story

    • Well the two myths I know about a banshee is it was a Fae that was corrupted, or a woman who was keening at a funeral, and returned a ghost or something, although both of these are the Irish myths, I'm not sure. I think it was because of the bite, it either killed her, or corrupted her.

      Probably because she was born a banshee. Being a banshee probably makes her immune to the bite but the bite may have been a plot tool to trigger her banshee-ness. Lol.

    • Acording to banshee legends Lydia could be a shapeshifter. Wikipedia says that: The banshee can appear in a variety of disguises. Most often she appears as an, ugly, frightening hag, but she can also appear as a stunningly beautiful womn of any age that suits her.

    • Lydia first experience of death in season 1 must have triggered it, but i dont think the bite did nothing; she was immune because was already supernatural.

    • Some more questions. Is a Banshee a spirit entity that may be inhabiting Lydia or is it physical and perhaps a shapeshifter that took the form of Lydia and her memories. Or it may have always been Lydia. I keep wondering Where Lydia's parents are? Did they cease to exist? Remember Lydia's parents in The Tell could not believe Lydia was somehow popular and intelligent. Also Jackson said Lydia was "as dead as they come". Maybe Lydia actually died sometime off what we see and was replaced by a shapeshifting Banshee changling.

    • Banshee's in mythology are mostly women who were murdered of died durring child birth so it's posible.

    • A lot of people already guessed it because a banshee was a extremely plausible theroty. Anyways, I was really annoyed by her screams. I was annoyed by it before but this episode just surpassed everything before. I was actually hoping Blake would knock her out cold or something lol. I wonder if Lydia has other talents as well apart from predicting death and being immune.

      1) I guess in this case it go either way, but usually a Banshee is a spirit entity that can shapeshift.

      2) In other episodes you can see Lydia still lives with her mom, but her father hasn't shown up since "The Tell". I just assumed they were divorced, but I could be wrong.

      3)That's an interesting theory, like maybe she died in the woods or something??? I can't wait to find out more!

      Hope this helps :)

    • Lydia is a banshee here are here powers described in the series

      1) Banshee scream:

      Can kill or stun her opponents, especially effective on those with a supernatural hearing ability.

      2) Psychic:

      Part of the ability of the banshee scream is that it is an omen of death. She can tell when someone is going to die. Here powers have manifested in a way she can actually locate the body of someone who has been murdered by supernatural causes.

      3) Immunity to Toxins and Poisons:

      She is immune to a werewolf bite, but that probably works because she is a different species. If she immune to a werewolf bite, Her bite could be lethal to a werewolf. She is also immune to kanima venom. In addition, to these I bet she is immune to alcohol and most poisons.

      Undefined or latent powers

      4) Superintelligence

      She is the smartest girl in school and with an IQ of 171 its no mere coincidence. I bet Jeff Davis is going to relate this somehow to her being a banshee. We will have to wait and see. 

      5) Sexual Magentism

      She made Scott kiss her in Season 1 when he was sitll dating Alison! Come on, that was the first clue. Also she basically has every guy in the school under her thumb. Also a banshee can be a "beautiful women with long flowing auburn hair".

      6) Full Moon Connection

      Her powers always activate during a full moon. Beginning of season 2 she went screaming through the woods during a full moon. And in season 3 she found her first body during a full moon. "Lunatic" Her words not mine.

      Powers I'd like to see

      Something connected to a spirit. The banshee is a spirit first and foremost, so maybe phasing or levitation. I also feel she should get some form of superstrength so she defend herself against werewolves, kanimas, and darach's. I'm sick of her being pushed around.


      Anyways this is a really cool set of powers. I've never seen anything done like this before. And I'm really excited for this creature for the series. I hope they can make her eyes glow white  (connected with the moon)  when she learns to uses her powers. In addition, I bet it would be awesome if Allison got Gerald bestiary and helped her hone her powers the way Styles helped Scott.

        Loading editor
    • I like the powers, I think she might be able to levitate at the most, as It's been said you can't outrun her scream, maybe she can fly? Or a less cheesy version is that maybe she was killed by Peter, which activated her (I never understood why Allison saw her like that is S1, all bloody and stuff) maybe she can link with the spirt world and phase, this is almost true, as in the latest ep, she scream till the back of the room, without hitting the desks or chairs. Also it was once believed they could shapeshft into a Crow, stoat, hare and weasal, later disporven, but a lot of legends have surrounded it. Maybe she has a comb for a wand? Who knows.

        Loading editor
    • I don't think she'l end up having spiritual powers. Remember when Stiles brought her the wiqi (idk how to spell it) board; nothing happened. I'd assume that if nothing happened than nothing relating to spirits will happen to her. I hope I'm wrong though.

      She's the important one because she's more important to Scott than Danny is. Remember? They're going after who is important for Scott, cause he's like a B option when Derek dies

      Then why wouldn't they go for Allison or Stiles? I think they may use Lydia for something,, maybe to bring something back from the dead.

    • Can i just point peter had some idea of her abilities before he bit her? The reason he bit her in the first palce was to ensure he would live on even if scott and company managed to kill him. Mean lydia has some some spiritual nature as she was the cartylst to transfer peters spirit bakc into his body/reserect him. So peter had some sort of idea about her before hand...and a banshee should be able to scream as an omen of death, now that shes not fighting it, she should be able to both seek out and let others know before hand, or even more importantly, became aware of what shes doing while shes doing it. which so far, has been her biggest problem...she gets there too late, resisting so she goes in a fog...

      I think this is because that was the first time she actually tapped into her powers and screamed the way she did. Sure she screamed before and Scott heard it, but this was a full-force "omg, I'm gonna die! Please help!" kind of a scream. Before it was just a scared one, not a terrified for my life one. That's just my take on it, otherwise it just wouldn't make much sense.

    • I could have been wrong about things....I just rewatched some episodes and read recaps and she did scream before as was pointed out by someone here (can't remember who at the time) while she was in the hospital. The scream was heard by all the werewolves. I had forgotten about that. Of course the newer scream could have been more powerful, as indicated by them covering their ears. Either way, I wonder if she couldn't use her scream to daze Deucalion and the Alphas long enough for someone to sneak up and then kill Deucalion?

    • I think her being a bashee is genetic and the gene gets activated when your surrounded by alot of death. Her getting the bite from Peter might have activated the intial immunity but I think it was the Kanima killings and the Darach Murders is what really triggered her bashee gene.

      Here is an interesting topic. I think her family is from Ireland and perhaps she had ancestors in ancient times who where banshee's from Celtic civilzation. In the ancient times people would die alot whether it was from battle or because people lived to age 40 max. This could activate the banshee gene/psychic powers. Maybe where her family moved to the Americas the banshee gene went dormant; which would make sense because I'm pretty sure her mom is not a banshee. And now she's in beacon hill so its activated.

    • The banshee's, werewolves, and druids all share the same Celtic tradition. Perhaps the Hale's (Natural Werewolves) and Lydia Martins are from Ireland. Also I don't know why the Druid's on this show are African American if Druids are Celtic?

    • I don't think she is a vessel for Peter is part of her power. I think that is just pure luck. When he attacked her she just happened to be immune. That's how she made the vessel.


      I Also think peter's memory stealing powers work when he put his nail into someones spine. It transfers the electrical signals from their spine (memories) to Peter's brain. And perhaps when he attacked lydia he left a little bit of himself in in victim. This little bit of genetic info was able to grow with every full moon and eventually manifest as his soul, or a backup copy.

      You know that could go along with why Peter's story was off. Maybe he had done that to Derek in order to "erase" at least some of  the painful memory of Paige's death. That could explain why Derek doesn't remember Ennis and why Peter looked youthful, knew everything Derek was doing during the tale AND why his eyes turned blue as well. When asked if Peter's eyes were blue because of him killing Laura or his past, Jeff Davis said, "His past." So maybe he shared in the guilt of her death? That would be sort of interesting.

      His eyes are blue because of "His past" meaning he took an innocent life sometime after Derek. Feeling guilty about someones death has noting to do with blue eyes (or atleast it was never stated)

    • Yeah, I think Peter actually knows a lot more then he ever lets on. Still not sure how well I would trust him....I'd like to think he's a good guy now but he seems to like keeping his cards to himself and often has his own hidden agenda. I don't know. I was thinking though, what if Peter was the one that killed the innocent that Ennis' beta was being blamed for? Just a thought. I guess it'll come out eventually who he killed before killing Laura, so we'll just have to see!

      "I Also think peter's memory stealing powers work when he put his nail into someones spine. It transfers the electrical signals from their spine (memories) to Peter's brain."

      IF he did this to Derek in order to help ease the pain then wouldn't he have the memory and guilt as well for Paige's death? This isn't about feeling guilty anymore, he literally shares that memory if this is correct. So, he could very well have had his eyes turn blue simply by doing this for Derek.

What is really silly is criticizing others for attempting to at least formulate a theory in which you haven't posted any such thing. That is really silly. Sorry if this sounds a little mean spirited it isn't my intention. Just an observation. I welcome all theories, ridiculous, stupid, down right insulting ones and especially the good ones. As I've told others, I watched LOST for 6 freaking seasons and had countless theories debated and rethought out and then smashed over and over again, only to have the ending they gave...in the end all the speculation and all the imagination me and other fans gave was summed up by our very first thought and theory. As long as Teen Wolf stays away from that, then it's all good!

      Agreed. Maybe 3B has more Banshee things. Who knows at this point. haha

    • Banshees seem pretty lame on the show and in Celtic myth. The only powers really attributed to them are a wail or scream that is said to predict death. They don't actually possess a psychic power. They are also said to be a hideous hag looking woman that can make themselves appear as a beautiful woman of any age. Some of the myth say she is a ghost and therefore not really alive. Others say that if you see a silver comb then don't touch it cause the Banshee will take you away to death. In America they are ghouls. Their scream isn't sonic as in the comic books of the character Banshee. Their scream can sound loud and piercing, song like, eerie, like the screech of an owl or like a wail of grief. Really, I don't see anything particularly cool about them, but to each his own. We'll see what added powers Teen Wolf gives them.

    • Just because the source material isn't epic doesn't mean they won't take huge artistic liberties to make their take on a creature on par with the shows other supes. The inspirations for the kanima had nothing to do with paralyzing venom, yet here we are. How many werewolf myths talk about their memory-claw abilities and healing hands? There are myriad directions they could go with this species. Even if Lydia's only "offensive" power is her piercing wail, she could still play a supportive role - the twins, Scott and Isaac were overwhelmed by her scream. No matter what obscurities we pick out from the multitude of "wailing womam" legends around the world, Davis's take on the Banshee may have nothing Banshee-like besides the screaming and being drawn to death, just like the kanima's only similarity to real world mythology was its pseudo-role as a creature of vengeance.

    • And, I also think it's pretty cool actually. I replayed at least a 3,4 times that screaming part in 3x09. It's an awesome scream :) :D

    • ^they haven't made that clear yet...was Lydia contacting a dead spirit (Peter) or did Peter leave a part of his identity in her subconscious to lead her to resurrect him( like when Morrell told Lydia that someone had made quite an impression on her (Peter through the bite)) and we know that Peter (and Talia) could add memories and take them away...so the whole thing could have been like a movie playing in her head that Peter  "impressed" upon her when he bit her that eventually lead her to do what she did. 

      Not saying she couldn't have been contacting Peter (I actually prefer that idea)...just saying they haven't really made it clear and there are other ways that could have been done.  And even if they were commuicating with one another between "realms" whose to say it was a banshee thing and not just result from a connection Peter made with Lydia through the bite. For all we know he could have made her his mate (not talking about in that way)...long shot but it is a type of connection especially if wolves mate for life. Just speculating.

    • banshee  ("woman of the sídhe" or "woman of the fairy mounds") is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the underworld. In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die.

      I don't see what makes Lydia it can't just be her scream there's a lot more to being oine than just screaming. hopefully she'll develop some kind of ability.

      I was right! I freaking knew it! There is one thing that I didn't get though; how did Blake know that Lydia was a Banshee? I mean I get that she's the Darach, but not even the Alpha Pack knew and they seem to know everything about everyone.

      Well I guess Blake knew about Lydia being a Banshee as she was  druid emessary for the alpha Kali. So she had to know all about werewolves and banshees etc... Or maybe Blake had an encounter with another banshee you never know.
