Gerard: "I know what you want-- you want your freedom. That means getting rid of people like Scott McCall. [...] We both know you can't match him in a physical fight. You might be able to kill him with a look, but you'd be surprised how resourceful he can be. [...] I will weaken him for you with the proper poison. Then, you kill him and his friends. And that will give you all the fear you'll need to never be caught again."
Anuk-ite: "And you?"
Gerard: "I'll drive every last one of their kind from Beacon Hills. You see this? A silver bullet. Every legend has a little truth to it, isn't that right? The legend is that you need silver to kill a Werewolf. The truth? You need an Argent."

Genotype is the eighteenth episode of Season 6 and the ninety eighth episode of Teen Wolf.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The episode title is a reference to Mrs. Finch's biology lesson on genetics, specifically regarding genotypes, the genetic traits passed down from parents to their offspring.
  • Strangely enough, Liam Dunbar appears to have gotten a haircut at some point between when he and Scott McCall figured out whose voice was on the phone's voicemail and when the two arrive at the high school. No explanation is given for this change in appearance.
  • Mason Hewitt suggests that a Werewolf or Werecoyote's power to take pain requires the person taking the pain to care about the person who is in pain, after Theo Raeken tries and fails to take his pain after being harmed by Aaron.
  • It is revealed that, when the Anuk-ite's two halves merge, the two become one large, flayed-looking creature who can kill anyone who makes eye contact with it by turning them into stone.
    • It also appears that the halves of the Anuk-ite seemingly have a romantic connection, but require one of their "vessels" to die so that the two can merge in the other's body.
