Teen Wolf howled at the MTV moon for a final time (at least for now), a series finale packed with returning faces, resolution and a hint at what may come.

The hour, which was written by creator Jeff Davis, featured returning faces such as Dylan O'Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Colton Haynes, Charlie Carver, and the defeat of the inugitae. While all that happened Tyler Posey's Scott McCall was put through the wringer—and then some.

"You gotta make it an epic fight," Davis told E! News about Scott's harrowing ordeal that included clawing his own eyes out. "You gotta make your main character bleed before he can win, so you have to have a moment of all hope is lost. It's all in the storytelling."

At the end of the day, Davis, who said there are only discussions about a Teen Wolf revival or reboot at MTV, said he was proud of the show.

"I'm most proud of the fact that the show has meant so much to so many people, not just the fans, but the people who have worked on it," he said. "I've helped people become directors, I've helped them become writers, that's a great responsibility to be given. To be able to help other people get where they want to go in their careers, that's a really nice gift. And the fact that it's meant so much to both crew, cast, and fans, that makes me proud. And the fact that people loved working on it. They loved coming back every day."

Endings are the worst.
