Plot Holes

  • The twins have to take off their shirt to merge, yet somehow, they do so while still wearing pants and shoes. While the Beast of Gevaudan's clothed transformations can be explained by the mystical method of its transformation (i.e using shadows to encase itself, thus keeping its clothing intact), the twins never get any explanation why their clothes are not affected. ("Tattoo"), ("Unleashed"), ("Frayed"), ("Lunar Ellipse")

Factual Errors

Revealing Mistakes

  • While Stiles Stilinski and Lydia Martin are searching through the chemistry closet at Beacon Hills High School, Stiles briefly goes from wearing a gray tshirt with a beach scene painted on the breast pocket to a plain white, round-neck tshirt with blue trim for a short moment. No explanation is given for this change in costuming. ("Galvanize")
  • Gideon Emery, who portrays Deucalion is not wearing his contact lenses to look blind; this was seen by the lightning strikes which reveals his real eyes behind the character's sunglasses. ("Currents")

Season Four

Continuity

  • Peter Hale's experience during his coma over the six years following the Hale House Fire appears to have been retconned-- in Season 1, he stated that his mind was gone and his body was running on instinct when he killed Laura Hale, whereas in Season 4, he claims that he was fully aware yet paralyzed and trapped in his own mind. ("Monstrous")

Plot Holes

  • Rafael McCall leaves Beacon Hills for a short trip back to San Francisco in order to explain to his FBI office why he had to use deadly force against The Chemist to prevent him from killing Stiles Stilinski, and tells Scott that they are going to have a talk about what his role in the town's drama is when he gets back. However, almost a year has passed in the timeline of the series since this point, and Rafael has yet to return. (This is likely explained by Rafael's actor Matthew Del Negro's involvement in the CBS television series Madam Secretary). ("Perishable")

Season Five

Continuity

Plot Holes

  • Theo Raeken confronts a man and a woman who are implied to be impersonating his parents, and goes so far as to smash his "father's" hand with a hammer in order to give a credible excuse as to why his signature has changed so that no one will question his identity. However, neither his real parents nor his pretend parents are seen or mentioned again, and though some people remained suspicious of Theo's motives, his identity as "Theo Raeken" is never questioned from this point forward. ("Parasomnia")

Season Six

Continuity

  • Conrad Fenris was able to incapacitate Jordan Parrish, the vessel of the Hellhound Cerberus, by electrocuting him with a live wire. However, Parrish was seen to be unaffected by the Chimera Josh Diaz's electromagnetokinesis in Season 5B's Amplification, implying that he had an immunity to electricity. No explanation is given for this sudden vulnerability to electricity, though there are several possibilities; it could be that he is only immune to supernatural electricity, rather than the mundane electricity that travels through a wire, or it could be that he needs to be in his full Hellhound form to activate this immunity. ("After Images")
  • In the Season 6 midseason premiere, Liam Dunbar, Mason Hewitt, and Corey Bryant all sign up for classes for their senior year of high school and discuss their college plans. However, in the Season 5 premiere, it is confirmed that Liam is roughly two years younger than the original group of characters (Scott McCall, Stiles Stilinski, Lydia Martin, etc, who have now graduated high school and are getting ready to leave for their own respective colleges). At the start of the new school year in Season 5A, the younger group of the pack were starting their sophomore year while the older group started their senior year. ("Creatures of the Night") Since it is established that the entirety of Season 5 covered half of that school year while Season 6A covered the other half, and it was later confirmed by Liam that only three months passed between Season 6A and Season 6B, Liam, Mason, and Corey should be starting their junior year of high school, not their senior year, indicating that their ages have been retconned. ("Said the Spider to the Fly"), ("After Images")
  • When Scott, Malia and Lydia go to track down Halwyn, they drive to the high school in Stiles' Jeep, with Scott driving, Lydia in the passenger seat, and Malia in the backseat. However, when they drive back to the McCall House in the following episode after finding Halwyn's body in the woods, they are in Malia's car, with Malia driving, Lydia in the passenger seat, and Scott in the backseat. ("Said the Spider to the Fly"), ("Raw Talent")
  • Brett Talbot and Lorilee Rohr are both killed after being viciously hit by a large SUV driven by one of Gerard Argent and Tamora Monroe's Hunters. However, though Brett's death makes sense based on the mythology due to the fact that he was poisoned with purple wolfsbane, which disabled his healing ability, Lori's death does not; since Werewolves have survived being hit by cars in the series prior to this point, and since they are able to survive even more severe injuries than this, such as a gunshot wound to the head, there is little reason for the injuries Lori sustained in the hit-and-run to be fatal to her. In the following episode, it is revealed that the attack also happened on the night of a full moon, which makes a Werewolf's powers even stronger; this makes it even more unlikely that the effects of being hit by a car would be fatal to Lori. ("After Images"), ("Face-to-Faceless"), ("Pressure Test")
    • The only possible explanation would be that carrying the weakened Brett, who had been poisoned with purple wolfsbane and was covered in wolfsbane-laced blood, caused Lori to be exposed to the poison herself. This theoretically could have weakened her enough to disable her healing ability as well.
  • Sydney was shown to be in Liam, Mason, and Corey's AP Biology class in Season 6, but in Season 4, she was shown taking the PSATs with the rest of the juniors at the time (including Scott, Stiles, Kira, and Malia, and was shown to be in Scott, Lydia, and Kira's AP Biology class in Season 5. Unless Sydney somehow failed a grade (which is unlikely given how much of an over-achiever she was said to be), her age has been retconned by the writers. ("Genotype"), ("Weaponized"), ("Parasomnia")
