Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Plot[edit | edit source]
Allison is fuelling up her car when the lights at the gas station go out. Someone throws a black bag over her head and kidnaps her. She ends up bound and gagged at Derek's house, sitting across from her father while a booming, ominous disembodied voice makes vague threats. Argent breaks from his binds and reveals that he set up this whole kidnapping as a way to get Allison started on her hunter training. As her first test, she must free herself from her binds. It takes her two and a half hours, which Argent's protege, waiting outside, informs her is a good time - it took him over three hours to free himself when he went into training. She leaves. As the other hunter heads to his motorcycle, a tentacle-y, vine-y appendage trips him. He fights, but ultimately falls. In the moonlight, ice claws gleam.
At school, one of Scott's classmates, Erica, has gone through an amazing transformation. The epileptic girl was shy and an outcast who wore unflattering clothing and didn't brush her hair. Suddenly she shows up, sexy and smoking hot, wearing the tiniest miniskirt and the highest heels, flaunting her goddess-like sexuality to everyone. It doesn't take long for Scott to see what has happened: Derek turned her with promises of power and "curing" her epilepsy. Scott and Stiles take Allison and Lydia on a "double-date" to the ice rink, after hours, their schoolmate, Boyd, works there and gave them the key. Lydia discovers purple flower petals scattered about the ice. She follows them and sees wolfsbane planted right in the ice. Crouching down, she sees a shadow beneath the surface... a man is under the ice, and his eyes open as he tries to break free. Lydia freaks out (rightly so) - but it is all in her mind.
After a confrontation in the hall with Erica, Scott starts to put the pieces together. Derek turned her, he turned Isaac. He needs at least one more to make a full pack. When Boyd isn't at school, it seems pretty obvious who Derek's next target is. There is no answer at Boyd's house, so Scott goes to the ice rink, where Boys is Zamboning the ice. Scott tries to talk him out of getting the bite, but Boyd - also an outcast, apparently - is looking for a place to belong. Even after Derek told him about the hunters, he still wants to turn. Derek, Isaac, and Erica turn up, and the battle is on for control of Boyd. Derek sends his goons after Scott, who takes them out pretty easily. Next it is Derek's turn. The two fight, and it ends with Scott, bloodied and wounded on the ice, Derek hovering over him in victory. Boyd reveals to Scott that Derek already gave him the bite, and heads off with his new pack.
Jackson believes that Lydia is immune to the werewolf curse, and blames her for "immunizing him" against turning. Both Argent and Scott (separately) turn to the vet for information about werewolves, and it seems he has a lot to tell Scott (next week, of course). Allison's mom deliberately slices open her arm so that she has an excuse to go to the hospital and get stitched up by Scott's mom. Mrs. Argent is trying to find out if Scott and Allison are sneaking around, and when Mrs. McCall reveals that Scott didn't seem too heartbroken, Mrs. Argent decides they are indeed still seeing each other.
