Main Cast

Supporting Cast



  • The title is a reference to Mary Howitt’s poem The Spider and the Fly. First published in 1829, the work stands as a warning to avoid the seductive allure of flattery and charm.
  • It's revealed that Stiles went to Quantico, Virginia at FBI headquarters for his internship.
  • It's revealed that Tamora Monroe was hired to be the guidance counselor of Beacon Hills High School, and that she is not only a Hunter, but has removed all books about mythology, folklore and superstition from the library.
  • Mason and Corey mention that they're thinking about going to the University of California, Los Angeles after graduation.
  • It is revealed that Halwyn, a Hellhound, has been a prisoner in Eichen House's supernatural wing since 1912.
  • Mason makes a reference to a "rat king" when he and Liam discover a pile of dead rats with their tails stuck together in the Underground Tunnels. The phenomenon is associated with Germany (where a "rat king" is called "Rattenkönig," and occasionally in France (where it is known as a "roi des rats.") Because this phenomenon occurs so rarely, it is often believed to be a cryptid; in folklore, "rat kings" are associated with a number of different superstitions and are commonly seen as a omen of impending bad events such as plagues. Rat kings are commonly formed from black rats, though it has been shown to happen with forest mice and other tailed rodents.
  • It is implied that the new creature associated with spiders and rats has the power to manipulate emotions by causing such intense fear in its victims that they begin taking pleasure in harming and killing each other and use this fear to blame the McCall Pack for the supernatural disasters in Beacon Hills.
  • Although it seems that Halwyn was killed by Tamora Monroe, in Genotype is revealed that he survived.
