"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.


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


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.
