While [[Spinnetod]] [[Lena Marcinko|Lena]] does morph into a huge spider creature that ruthlessly kills its victims, unlike the Goblin Spider, she feels guilty for her crimes. The Spinnetod is humanized; while she doesn't want to blindly kill, her nature makes it nearly impossible to restrain herself. The Grimm writers also raised the stakes by introducing the rapid aging curse, making the decision for the Spinnetod even harder.
