Season Summary

Jackson Whittemore has moved to London. A new teacher, Jennifer Blake, has joined Beacon Hills High with a keen eye for Derek Hale. Scott McCall, Allison Argent, Stiles Stilinski, and the rest of the gang find themselves up against a new enemy that has come to Beacon Hills: the lethal Alpha Pack, who have kidnapped Vernon Boyd, Erica Reyes, and, unbeknownst to anyone else, Derek's long-lost sister Cora Hale. While infiltrating the bank where the Alphas have taken refuge, Derek and Scott discover that Erica has been killed and that Cora was also a captive. In addition to this threat, a mysterious, threatening, dark Druid has been taking categorized trios of human sacrifices, ritualistically killing them in order to gain the power necessary to go against the Alpha Pack.

In the latter half of the season, while Scott struggles find his place as Alpha, he, Stiles, and Allison begin to experience strange side effects as a result from igniting the power within Beacon Hills through the surrogate sacrifice ritual. They soon discover the answer to their problems may be found in a new student named Kira Yukimura, a girl with remarkable power of her own. It is soon revealed that Kira is a Thunder Kitsune, a long-lived Fox spirit with the power to create, control, and absorb electricity, and that her mother, Noshiko, a 900-year-old Celestial Kitsune, had a connection to the powerful Nogitsune, who had escaped the prison he was forced into by Noshiko in 1943 and had possessed a new vessel-- Stiles Stilinski. The newly-formed McCall Pack and their allies must work together to find a way to free Stiles from his possession without killing him in the process.
