In the age of social media, disappearing for two weeks is kind of a big deal. Disappear for five months, and you may as well have been wiped off the face of the planet. Dylan O'Brien hasn't been seen publicly since sustaining serious injuries on the set of Maze Runner: The Death Cure way back in March.
This being 2016, that absence prompted a whole bunch of speculation about serious facial burns or other terrible disfigurements that might make a lot of teenage girls very sad, but happily the Teen Wolf star has now resurfaced, looking reassuringly healthy and in high spirits.
Yes, Dylan. You work that beard.
Twitter user Vanessa Denegri got the surprise of a lifetime on Sunday when O'Brien wandered into her Jamba Juice store in L.A. Being the nice guy that he is, he posed for a photo, which obviously spread across the internet like wildfire.
Prior to filming The Death Cure, O'Brien had returned to Teen Wolf, shooting scenes for the first half of Season 6. It would be majorly disappointing if Stiles didn't appear in the final run of episodes, so here's hoping MTV can work their production schedule around Dylan's recovery.
Teen Wolf returns to MTV in November. Maze Runner: The Death Cure hits theaters February 2018.
