Notes & Trivia Edit

  • This episode takes place a little less than a month after the events of "Night School".
  • This is the first time that the alpha werewolf is seen assuming human form. The werewolf's true identity is revealed in "Wolf's Bane".
  • In one scene, Scott's eyes turn yellow and his voice deepens as he intimidates the group of bullies into surrendering the whiskey to him. This is a nod to the original Teen Wolf film in which Michael J. Fox's character Scott Howard, uses his werewolf abilities to frighten the proprietor of Tony's Liquor into selling him a keg of beer.
  • This episode reveals that Victoria Argent is fully "in the know" about her husband's extracurricular activities as a werewolf hunter. Future episodes will reveal that she is actually the one calling the shots, and is by far the most ruthless member of the Argent family.

Bloopers Edit

  • Continuity: In this episode, Mister Harris gives his class an economics test. Harris is a chemistry teacher. Bobby Finstock is the economics teacher (in addition to being coach to the lacrosse team).
