The season premiere of Bravo’s Southern Charm began with its usual story of aging bros and ex-cheerleaders struggling in a Charleston caste system none of us understand. But then something horrifying occurred. As cast members frolicked at a totally original “Great Gatsby” party, something sinister appeared. It is an ancient evil many dismiss as folklore and fairy tale, but its realness was on display for all as it lingered and lurked in the background, toying with its unknowing prey as it calculated the right time to pounce and destroy.
Some call it a werewolf. Others simply name it “wolfman.” But whatever the title, this lycanthrope has eyes only for death and killing, putting beloved characters like Shep Rose and Craig Conover in a fight for their lives they aren’t even aware of.
Fan theories about what all this means have taken over the internet Here are some of our favorites:
What was the wolfman doing at a 1920’s themed party and how did he get in?
According to some fans, gaining entrance to a party, even one where people dress from an era before deodorant and civil rights, is simple, as a wolfman can easily overwhelm any gatekeepers with his seductive werewolf stare, making them his temporary supplicants. Next, many fans believe the wolfman is probably from that very era and was attracted by the familiar atmosphere he once enjoyed before being cursed to wander the earth trying to satisfy his unquenchable lust for blood.
Is Shep Rose the wolfman?
One fan theory suggests that Shep Rose is the werewolf, as the two seem to not be pictured at the same time. Further, Rose continues to talk about how he is “a new man” and that he’s “changed” since meeting his girlfriend, who, it is argued, turned Shep into a creature of the night and made him her personal slave who combs Charleston in the darkness to bring home fresh meat for her to feast upon.
The “wolfman” is just some dude.
This less popular theory suggests the werewolf captured on film is just a guy who got really bad advice from someone who saw his beard and hair and said, “Yeah, that looks really good.”
We are all the “wolfman.”
This theory is where instead of exploring the evils of the wolfman, you just accuse yourself and society of being evil or blame yourself and everyone else for “creating” the wolfman. Then you kind of just stop talking. Use this one in an English class maybe.
Anyway… Those are basically the main theories. Beware, we guess. We’re done writing now. Goodbye.
