"Do I have to remind you what we're up against here? A pack of Alphas, all of them killers. And, if that's not enough to scare your testicles back into your stomach, try to remember that two of them combine to form one giant Alpha. I'm sure Erica and Boyd were sweet kids. They're going to be missed."
"Can someone kill him again, please?"

Chaos Rising is the second episode of Season 3 and the twenty-sixth episode of Teen Wolf.

Synopsis Edit

Allison and Lydia stumble upon a possible clue to finding Boyd and Erica, while a childhood friend of Stiles goes missing.

Plot Edit

Stiles' childhood friend, Heather, is attacked and goes missing. Scott, Stiles, Derek and Dr. Deaton help Isaac recover his memories, and it is revealed that he had found Boyd and another female werewolf, being kept in an abandoned bank vault. However, when Allison sneaks into the bank and is forced to hide from the Alphas in a closet, she finds Erica's decomposing body, indicating that she had been dead for some time. When Derek and Scott break in to save them, Derek recognizes the other female werewolf to be his little sister Cora, previously thought dead. Stiles and Peter discover that Boyd and Cora have been kept from transforming for the past three months. Wild and bloodthirsty, Boyd and Cora almost kill Derek and Scott until Allison saves them by setting the wolves free.

Continuity Edit

  • This episode marks the start of the Darach's abductions and sacrifices when Heather is captured from her home during her 17th birthday party. However, her body will not be found until Fireflies.
  • Peter uses the memory sharing ritual typically only performed by Alphas to try to uncover Isaac's repressed memories by inserting his claws into the back of Isaac's neck. This ritual was first seen being done by Peter to Scott in Co-Captain.
  • Lydia and Allison research the mysterious symbol left on their arms in the form of bruises by the mysterious girl who saved Isaac in Tattoo.
  • It is revealed that Cora Hale, Derek's younger sister, managed to survive the Hale fire and got caught by the Alpha Pack as well, and Cora makes her first official appearance in this episode after a brief glimpse of her in Tattoo.
  • It is revealed that Erica was killed by one of the Alphas at some point between Master Plan and Tattoo, and they then locked her body in a storage closet, which was confirmed when Allison hid in said closet and found her body.
    • In Currents, it is revealed that Kali was the Alpha who killed Erica.
  • Danielle appears in this episode. She was last seen in Party Guessed.
  • It is revealed that one of the twins, Ethan, is gay in this episode, and that he has a romantic interest in Danny Mahealani. Meanwhile, Aiden is straight and seems to have a romantic interest in Lydia.
  • Derek and Allison reference several events from Season 2:
    • Derek referenced Lydia resurrecting Peter, which occurred in Party Guessed, and Allison "shooting thirty arrows into me and my pack," which technically occurred in Fury, Battlefield, and Master Plan, though Derek seemed to be exaggerating since Allison didn't actually shoot Derek himself with any arrows.
    • Allison referenced her mother Victoria's death, which occurred in Party Guessed after she killed herself following Derek accidentally biting her in Raving.
      • Derek also mentioned the fact that Victoria was trying to kill Scott when he bit her to Scott when he insisted that Scott tell Allison the truth about it.

Trivia Edit
