*** Actually, at the end of the episode, once he's an old man, he bids farewell to Danny (he also calls her that for the first time) and says he's "going out back now to join [his] family. It's been far too long." He then tells her to enjoy her youth while she can, and then leaves the scene. So, yes, it's possible that ''he'' used ''them'', but not vice versa. Otherwise, he wouldn't have been the episode's antagonist, as he would no longer have existed. Then again, perhaps he did age because of them, but later retaliated and eventually gained the upper hand, which would explain why he ended up all alone. Perhaps he and his family got so greedy in stealing people's souls that, before they knew it, they were trying to steal ''each other's'' souls too, and it became a "contest" over who could steal the most souls and end up being the sole survivor.

* "''The Tale of the Phantom Cab''" doesn't make any sense and isn't really scary, but what's worse is that this story lets the new kid, Frank, in. Essentially, 2 brothers are lost in the woods, find a cabin where some weirdo demands a riddle answer, but they don't so he calls them a Cab, only for the Cab to be driven by a Ghost '''''in the woods''''' who is going to crash and kill the brothers until one of them solves the riddle and the Cab just vanishes. If I was a member of the Midnight Society, I would not allow Frank in with this ridiculous, not scary story. But they unanimously vote him in. Why? Those Kids really found the stupid story scary enough for their club?

** Thinks about Peter's family. He looks annoyed when finding out that Danielle found out "our" plan (which could mean his family) meaning the whole stealing people's life essence to stay young is implied to have been a thing his family's been doing for generations. One also wonders what happened to Peter's family: Did Peter use them to stay young as well or did they use him?

Added DiffLines:

* Peter is shown in "The Tale Of The Captured Souls" to spy on Danielle and her family through his mirrors as part of his plan to steal their youth. The cameras include views of the tub in the bathroom and the bedroom. Does this mean Peter has watched Danielle and her parents undress when changing, to take a bath, or going to bed? Especially alarming when one considers that he's implied to have disturbing Foe Yay towards Danielle.
** Also, he has signs outside which have crossings on them to indicate how many lives he's taken to stay young. One sign depicts man outline with 21 tally marks, 15 tally marks for the women, 34 kid tally marks, and 10 dog tally marks.
** One wonders if he's taken more lives than what was shown to be tallied. Like whether there are tally marks on the back or he's storing already marked sign outlines somewhere.

** As is mentioned below the Midnight Society is some kind of Legacy group, it's even implied that some of the current children's parents were former members. Presumably that combined with current members inviting new members means there is always a Midnight Society. They probably have chapters all over the state/country.



* In the video game: Mary laid a curse on the theater that magic would never again work onstage, and that she'd become the star of the theater. Did she not realize that she just cursed ''herself'' to perpetual failure?

* How did the members of the Midnight Society meet? In the first episode, they mention that they go to different schools and have different friends, and that they frankly have no connections to each other outside of the Midnight Society. Aside from the brothers Gary and Tucker, how did they meet to form the Society in the first place.
