** What makes it even scarier [[FridgeHorroe in hindsight]]? Those plagues were created by [[GrannyClassic Mother]] [[MotherNature Summer]], who shows them [[BewareNiceOnes exactly same, tender attention which one might show to puppies or grandchildren]]. In all her (though brief) appearances, Mother Summer seemed like [[OnlySaneMan a single truly good faerie in entire series.]] It is very easy to forget that she is just as powerful and [[LightIsNotGood in]][[BlueAndOrangeMorality human]] as Mother Winter.

** How about the fact that because [[spoiler:it happened on Halloween, the guy's not coming back from it, ever]]? No wonder the Fae don't want that little bit of info getting out, especially considering [[spoiler:who their enemies are]].

**It's still creepy as hell when you think about what his Name means. He Who Walks Behind, was always behind Harry, getting closer, and closer, and closer. With a guess [[spoiler:He Who Walks Before]] starts out beside you and walks further and further ahead, no matter how fast you run, you'll never be in time to save anyone because he's one step ahead of you. Either this is another advantage of Harry being a [[spoiler:Starborn, with power over outsiders]], or he just didn't build up enough "distance" to render the situation entirely without hope.

* Not as horrifying on an apocalyptic scale as most of the above, early in the book Dresden shatters a fey lord into pieces. Which given the statement he was making is pretty awesome. But then he starts dancing with Mab as the pieces crunch under his feet. Harry dances with his queen on the crunching frozen gore of their enemies. There are supervillains who would draw the line at that.

* Mother Winter after Harry becomes desperate enough to summon her. That is all.

* The reveal of [[BiggerBad Nemesis]]. A sentient mental "disease" that [[MindControl subverts people]] to the cause of the [[EldritchAbomination Outsiders]]. Said to be responsible for most of Harry's major cases, and also corrupted the athame that was given to the Leanansidhe at [[Literature/GravePeril Bianca's masquerade party]], causing ''her'' to be infected, which in turn infected a Faerie Queen. What's worse? [[ParanoiaFuel There's no way to tell who's been infected,]] unless you confront them. If they're not infected, you look like you're crazy. If they ''are'' infected, they either [[HeKnowsTooMuch kill you]] or [[TheVirus infect you]].

*** Not being known by mortals does not affect creatures in the Never Never, it only limits the power they can wield on the mortal plane.

* While [[spoiler:He Who Walks Before]] (a.k.a. Sharkface) doesn't have nearly the same Nightmare Fuel quotient as He Who Walks Behind, he's still a creepy mofo. He's a tall, skeletal humanoid with a prehensile cloak, [[EyeScream scars where his eyes should be]], and a ridge of solid bone instead of teeth, and he's constantly drooling black saliva and has a seriously nasty psychic punch.

** Just to cap it off, try imagining what life must've been like for normal people ''before Merlin locked all those abominations away''.
