The two set out to find the other half, but Scott is attacked and bitten by a Werewolf. With his new-found lycanthropy, Scott gains supernatural abilities, such as enhanced strength, speed and heightened senses, enabling him to excel as the captain of his Beacon Hills High School lacrosse team.

Scott and Stiles meet Beta Werewolf Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin), whose family perished in a mysterious house fire six years ago. They uncover the second half of the missing corpse and discover it is Derek's sister, Laura Hale. He learns the Alpha Werewolf, the most powerful of all wolves, is on a murdering spree and was responsible for biting him. Realizing the consequences and dangers of his new life, he is forced to protect his peers and loved ones, including his girlfriend Allison, who struggles to find her place in their new world, torn between the Werewolf love of her life and her family's Hunter legacy.
