|“|| "They'll find me. My friends are going to find me."|
"You think so? I myself was kind of wondering what they're doing right now-- what useless lead they're chasing. I wonder if maybe some of them have bigger problems to deal with. Are they spending every minute looking for you? Or... are they waiting for nightfall, focused on some hopeless gesture to pass the time?"
"What do you want?"
"The trickster stories are all about food, Lydia-- the coyote, the raven, the fox... They're all hungry. I'm the same. I just crave something a little different. I eat what you feel... and I'm insatiable."
While searching for Lydia in the woods, Aiden and Ethan are shot at by an unknown shooter with wolfsbane bullets, and are saved by Derek. Noshiko tries to teach Kira the board game that Stiles was playing with the Nogitsune. Later, Ken discovers that the Nogitsune and Kira's mother play the game the same way. Lydia is taken to the internment camp by the Nogitsune; the group arrive and find Kira's mother and the Oni, who plan to kill the Nogitsune. The Nogitsune takes possession of the Oni by breaking one of Noshiko's last kaiken tails and has them face off against Kira, Allison, and Isaac, while Scott and Stiles find Lydia, who is horrified that the pack didn't listen to her messages, implying that she had a premonition that Allison would be killed.
Sure enough, though Allison manages to kill one of the Oni using her silver arrowhead )a feat thought impossible even by Noshiko), she was stabbed in the chest by another Oni while she was distracted. Scott rushes to catch her before she falls, and when he tries to take her pain, it doesn't work, as, according to Allison, it didn't hurt. He begs her to stay with him, and she professes that he is her first love and that she will always love him before dying in his arms, leaving her last request to tell her father about the Oni's vulnerability to silver unfinished.

- It is revealed that the Nogitsune's flies can not only be countered by reishi mushrooms (as learned in The Fox and the Wolf), but also by a person physically removing them from the back of the throat of their victim, as demonstrated by Alan Deaton on Isaac, Ethan, and Aiden.
- It is confirmed that the Nogitsune gained the power necessary to magically separate himself from Stiles as a result of all the chaos, strife, and pain he had caused and subsequently fed on throughout his time on the series. This allowed him to create a brand new and physically identical body for Stiles, which occurred in De-Void.
- Allison performs the Argent tradition of forging a silver bullet as a rite of passage after learning all of the skills needed to be a Hunter, though instead of a bullet, she made a silver arrowhead. This ritual was first mentioned in Alpha Pact.
- Meredith Walker appears in this episode. She was last seen in Echo House.
- The almost telepathic connection between Banshees is explored for the first time in this episode when Meredith Walker breaks out of Eichen House to find the McCall Pack after receiving hearing a message they needed help, and again when Meredith contacts Lydia to help find her location so the pack could rescue her from the Nogitsune.
- This episode marks the first ever episode where a main character permanently dies when Allison is killed by an Oni demon.
- Additionally, this episode marks the first time that a human has killed an Oni, as demonstrated when Allison shot and killed one with her silver arrowhead-tipped arrow. The only other person, supernatural or otherwise, to kill an Oni is the Nogitsune (while possessing Stiles), who forcibly ripped out the fireflies that animate them, and which was seen in Silverfinger.
- The song that plays after Allison's death while Scott cradles her body in his arms is "Look Out" by James Vincent McMorrow. This artist's music first appeared in Season 1's pilot, Wolf Moon, when his song "And if My Heart Should Somehow Stop" played during Allison and Scott's first real interaction at the Beacon Hills Animal Clinic.
- The title refers to the Nogitsune's remark about the trickster stories and how he—like the fox, the coyote, and the raven in folklore—are always hungry. He then describes his appetite for chaos, strife, and pain to be "insatiable."
- This episode marks the last present-day appearance of Allison Argent, who dies in this episode, though she will be credited in the season finale The Divine Move.
