SPOILER ALERT: The text below reveals major plot points to the Monday, March 17, episode of MTV's Teen Wolf

MTV is launching a special website for angst-ridden fans of its Teen Wolf series to collectively mourn the sudden death of one of the show's main characters in Monday night's episode.

Immediately after the third season's penultimate episode ended at 11 p.m. ET, MTV had the site TeenWolfMemorial.com ready to offer solace for people upset that the character Allison Argent wound up on the wrong end of a sword wielded by a mythical Japanese demon.

Argent, played by actress Crystal Reed, is the ex-girlfriend of Scott McCall, the drama's lead character.

Argent's death shouldn't entirely be a surprise; MTV has been advertising that one of the show's main characters would be killed off. The network kept that character's identity a secret, although the announcement that someone was doomed launched plenty of online speculation.

"You can look at life one way or the other," the 21-year-old music star said, "half-naked or half-clothed."

Her young fans appreciably and knowingly laughed. The quiet, mostly off-camera moments Tuesday night at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood seemed more unplugged than the show by the same name.

"Right now I'm at a point in my career where I can just be exactly who I want to be," she says in the special. "I can just have fun and not think about any kind of repercussion and just go for what you want to do. That causes a lot of reaction but I think there's something about watching people grow up."
