Allusions Edit

  • The title, "Ouroboros", refers to an ancient symbol of a serpent consuming its own tail. This symbology has also been referenced in shows such as Hemlock Grove. It relates to the concept of self-reflexivity and rebirth. In the context of this show, it may be an allusion to Deputy Jordan Parrish, who seems to have abilities similar to that of a Phoenix, which is a creature that dies and is reborn from the ashes of its own destruction.

Reveals Edit

Teen Wolf 5x08 002

M. Stilinski.

  • The Desert Wolf is finally revealed in this introductory appearance. Rumors of Malia's maternal lineage go back to a subplot from season four, which were never fully resolved. The Desert Wolf is Malia's mother, whom she had with werewolf Peter Hale. Like Malia, the Desert Wolf is a werecoyote. Her actual name is not revealed at this time.
  • However, we do finally get a small glimpse of Stiles' real name. While looking at his student ID card, we see the name M. Stilinski in the top-right corner. The mystery of Stiles' first name has been a holdover since season one. Producers on the show promised to reveal it at some point during season two, but this never happened.
