Surprisingly quickly, Scott's wolf howl attracts the giant alpha, who, having savaged Derek, appears in and around the high-school. There Scott has a hellishly hard time trying to hide or barricade with Stiles and, as a result of phony text messages, Jackson, Lydia and Allison. The alpha's howl and presence cause Jackson's back claw wounds to hurt, which he still hides. the monster kills nobody, but apparently waits until Scott, who believes he's being summoned to the alpha pack like Derek said, transforms and transits by killing his friends. Pressed by the others, Stiles finally calls his father, who arrives when it's all over. Thinking of Allison again allowed Scott to re-assume human form unnoticed, but after the trauma she dumps him till further notice. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


This is known in the trade as a "bottle episode" in that it has a limited cast all largely confined to one location. Such episodes are usually conceived in order to save money. See more »


When Lydia tries calling 9-1-1 for help, the operator refuses to send help because someone had previously warned them about possible 'prank calls' about needing help in the school. In reality, 9-1-1 operators are supposed to take ALL calls for help seriously, even if it's believed to be a prank. In instances where calls for help may not need actually assistance, ways to confirm a call can be ignored will be in place. Examples of this exception are sometimes mentioned in the show, What Would You Do?. See more »


Jackson: Call the cops.
Stiles: No.
Jackson: What do you mean, "no"?
Stiles: I mean no. You wanna hear it in Spanish?
[Spanish accent]
Stiles: No!

Worst episode ever. It is waaaaay to long to come to the point of the story in this one. Fell a sleep watching it because it was so boring
