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 was not wearing his contact lenses to look blind during the battle between the Alpha Pack, the Beacon Hills packs, and Jennifer Blake at the hospital; this was seen as a result of the lightning strikes, which revealed 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. ("Co-Captain"), ("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 passed before Rafael returned to Beacon Hills, and he is revealed to have been filled in on the supernatural world off-screen with no explanation as to why or when this occurred. (The real-world explanation of his absence is likely due to Rafael's actor Matthew Del Negro's involvement in the CBS television series Madam Secretary). ("Perishable"), ("Pressure Test"), ("Triggers")

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")

Factual Errors

  • Scott McCall references his once instance of breaking a Mountain Ash barrier in a conversation with Liam Dunbar and states that the effort "nearly killed him." However, no evidence of Scott's actions being nearly fatal to him were shown at the time of this event; in fact, doing so finally activated his True Alpha potential, which, at the time, implied that this was why the feat was possible. ("Amplification"), ("Lunar Ellipse")

Revealing Mistakes

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, though it was not even implied to be the case by the characters at any point in the final season.
  • 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")
  • During the fight between Nolan and Gabe at the hospital, Gabe viciously assaulted Nolan to the point of bloodying his face. However, when Nolan was found by Melissa McCall after the fight, his face was clean (albeit sweaty) aside from a small and slightly scabbed laceration at his hairline. No explanation is given for Nolan's recovery. ("Broken Glass"), ("The Wolves of War")

Plot Holes

Factual Errors

  • After Scott McCall is shot in the shoulder with the yellow wolfsbane bullet by Tamora Monroe, Derek Hale takes him into a nearby classroom to burn the wolfsbane out with a blowtorch. Scott was later seen in the library applying pressure to the wound, but the process of burning of the wolfsbane out of his body with the blowtorch should have cauterized the wound and prevented it from continuing to bleed. ("The Wolves of War")

Revealing Mistakes

  • Near the end of Season 6B, Liam's hair (which is at the longest length that it has been since he joined the cast) seems to change back and forth in length and style in the final few episodes, seemingly indicating that the scenes may have been shot out of order, and that his actor, Dylan Sprayberry, got a haircut at some point during the course of filming these scenes.
    • This is most noticeable in Genotype:
      • In the scene at the animal clinic where he and Scott are debating what to do with the cell phone they found on the Anuk-ite's dead body, his hair is loose and has no product in it, making it easy to see that the hair at the back of his head was so long it nearly touched his collar.
      • In the next scene at Beacon Hills High School, Liam's hair has been slicked back with gel, and the hair at the nape of his neck is much shorter. ("Triggers"), ("Werewolves of London"), ("Genotype")
  • In a scene between Liam and Nolan in the high school library, it is very noticeable that Liam's line, "Because this time, maybe I'll kick your ass," was dubbed over due to his lips not matching up with the words. ("Broken Glass")
