Walt was making suggestions and Werewolf by Night was absolutely on the list.”
“In my mind, as I started making my season, I was like, ‘Okay. Episode 5. Werewolf in the Night.’ The idea of our story was that Howard was stuck here and he was trying to get Darkhold’s pages, which would allow him to go back. Howard is because I’m making it out and then I turn to Jeff and Told him what I wanted to do, and then he said ‘You can’t use werewolf at night’ and I asked why. He said the film division was using him.”
