"So you killed her?" Stiles asks as the boys head into school. Scott tells him that he's not sure because he woke up. He was sweaty and he couldn't breathe, which has never happened to him before. It's happened to Stiles, although his dreams usually didn't end in murder. Scott never wants to hear that much detail about Stiles in bed again.
Stiles starts to offer an analysis of the dream, but Scott stops him, presuming he's going to say that he's just scared about losing control on his date with Allison tomorrow. And that was pretty much exactly what Stiles was going to say. He tells Scott that he thinks he's handling the whole thing pretty well, given that there's no Lycanthropy for Beginners class he can take. Scott replies that maybe he should get a teacher. "Who, Derek?" Stiles asks in disbelief. He smacks Scott on the back of the head and reminds him that they got him put in jail. Scott's aware of that, but he can't get over how real his dream felt, and it has him deeply worried.
They head back inside, and Scott starts to freak out that Allison isn't answering his texts. His fear and worry start to trigger a shift, and Scott punches a dent in what turns out to be Jackson's locker. When he sees the destruction, he starts backing away in distress, only to bump into Allison. She drops all her books. "You scared the hell out of me," she says, but Scott is so relieved to see her that he can't stop smiling. At 9:19, the principal makes an announcement about the incident in the parking lot, mostly that classes will proceed as scheduled. A groan rises from the hallway.
In Chemistry, Scott suggests to Stiles that maybe the blood on the bus door was his. Stiles thinks it could have been animal blood. "Maybe you caught a rabbit or something." "And did what?" Stiles pauses for a beat. "Ate it." "Raw?" "No, you stopped to bake it in a little werewolf oven," Stiles snipes back.
Later, in the particularly depressing lunch room, Stiles insists that the dreams weren't memories. Scott insists right back that something definitely happened and the fact that he can't remember what is a serious problem. Stiles does not approve of the plan to go to Derek, but Scott thinks he must have some answers since he wasn't a Werewolf during the full moon. Scott decides that he has to cancel his date with Allison, but this time Stiles is telling him that he can't cancel his whole life just because he's a Werewolf. Stiles assures him that they'll figure it out.
Stiles says that he just found out who the man is. He plays a news video on his phone which states that the man, Garrison Meyers, survived. Scott says that he knows Garrison from back when he used to take the bus when he lived with his dad. Garrison was the bus driver.
Lydia asks if they can talk about something more fun. She then asks Allison what they're all going to do on their date tomorrow night. The double date is apparently news to Scott and devastating news to Stiles. Jackson would rather stab himself in the face with a fork, but Lydia insists. "How about bowling? You love to bowl." Jackson says he needs actual competition, and Allison takes that as a challenge.
Scott then brags to Jackson that he's a great bowler, which is a complete lie.
"You're a terrible bowler!" Stiles complains after lunch. "I know! I'm such an idiot." Stiles says that it was like watching a train wreck. First it was a group date and then "hanging out." Once you've reached "hanging out" it's like being a hot girl's gay best friend. Stiles tells Scott he could start hanging out with Danny and then comments that he doesn't think Danny likes him very much. "Am I unattractive to gay guys?" Scott ignores him and complains about his life before heading off to work. Stiles calls after him, really concerned about whether he's attractive to gay guys.
Deaton claims not to be an expert but looks at the photos of bite marks on Garrison Meyers. Sheriff Stilinski also mentions the wolf hairs on Laura Hale's body, and Scott can't help but comment. He repeats Stiles's information that there haven't been wolves in California in 60 years. Deaton explains that while that's true, wolves can wander in from far away, especially if they're motivated by a primal drive. Deaton points out that Garrison has claw marks on his face, but a wolf would have gone for the throat and spinal cord. The Sheriff asks if that means it's a mountain lion, but Deaton just can't say. A wolf could hobble its prey and then go for the throat.
Scott flashes to his memory of having grabbed Allison's ankles to pull her down.
Later, Scott heads to Beacon Hills Hospital to bring his mom some dinner. Melissa laughs at her wonderful son, and he's all smiles. "You are the most thoughtful, loving, most conniving little con artist ever. You are so not getting the car tomorrow tonight." Scott looks offended, but she tells him there's a curfew, so he can't have the car. She takes the food anyway and saunters off.
A Beacon Hills police officer pulls up to the Hale House and calls back to dispatch to tell them that the house looks deserted. They tell him he has to make sure the property is empty and don't care if his pansy ass is scared. The officer's police dog barks as he gets nearer the house, and the guy jumps in fear.
Not 10 seconds after the cruiser is gone, Scott walks up to the house. He stops in the yard and talks at a normal, conversational tone. "I know you can hear me. I need your help."
"Am I gonna hurt someone?" "Yes." "Could I kill someone?" "Yes." "Am I gonna kill someone?" "Probably."
That night, Scott and Stiles go to the school parking lot where the bus is. Scott tells Stiles that he needs to stay behind and keep watch. Stiles wants to know why he always has to keep watch. "Why is it starting to feel like you're Batman and I'm Robin. I don't want to be Robin all the time," Stiles says. Scott isn't having this metaphor and orders Stiles to stay put.
Stiles sees someone with a flashlight near the bus and starts hitting his horn to warn Scott. Scott runs from the bus, uses a nearby SUV as a spring board, and flips over the fence. They speed away, and Scott tells Stiles that he remembers being on the bus. A lot of the blood is his, but there was another set of glowing eyes on the bus. He thinks it was Derek. Stiles wants to know why Derek would help him remember if he was the one who attacked the driver. He suggests that it's a pack thing, like an initiation that they have to kill together. But since Scott didn't do it, he must not be a killer. "Which also means that--" "I can go out with Allison," Scott says with a smile. Stiles was going to say that Scott won't kill him.
Chris tells the girls that they will be staying in tonight because of the curfew. They argue a little, but Allison gives up. Lydia comments on her being daddy's little girl. "Sometimes. But not tonight." Allison puts on a hat, opens her window, and escapes. She does a forward flip off the roof and smiles up at Lydia. "Eight years gymnastics. Are you coming?" Lydia decides to take the stairs.
Scott throws a gutterball immediately, much to Jackson's delight. Allison tells Jackson to stop laughing, but he quotes Scott's "I'm a great bowler." Jackson keeps sniping at Scott while Allison keeps defending him. Scott prays for just one pin, but the ball still goes into the gutter just before reaching the pins.
It's Scott's turn to bowl again, and Allison decides to give him some help. She tells him that he's thinking too much and suggests that he clear his head and think about her naked instead. This seems like something he can totally do. Scott's vision sharpens to red werewolf vision, and he throws a perfect strike.
Chris orders one of his men to check the oil. The hunter busts in the driver's side window.
The hunters leave, their threats having been made clear.
Scott is on a roll at the bowling alley. Allison makes a point to ask Jackson how many Scott has gotten. It's 6 in a row.
Jackson takes a break to play pinball, and Scott tries to be nice to him. Jackson tells him that he knows something is off about Scott even if he doesn't know what. "You cheated tonight." "How do you cheat in bowling?" "I don't know, but you did. And I don't know if it's steroids or something weirder." Jackson vows to figure out what Scott's secret is. He knows that whatever it is, Scott doesn't want Allison to know.
Melissa's shift is just ending, and she's looking forward to going home and watching some TV when the alarms go off in Garrison's room. Melissa rushes in to find him dead.
Stiles tells Scott the news he came over to report. The bus driver is dead.
Scott heads right off for the Hale House. He tells Derek that he knows what he did. Derek answers like he's the Phantom of the Opera, his voice echoing through the house. "I didn't do anything." Scott accuses him of murder, but Derek says that the man simply died. Scott accuses him of killing Laura, but Derek says she was missing and he came to Beacon Hills looking for her. Scott doesn't believe him and threatens to tell everyone.
Derek tells him it's an alpha. "The most dangerous of our kind. You and I, we're betas. This thing is more powerful, more animal than either of us." He tells Scott that Laura came to Beacon Hills looking for the alpha and now Derek has taken up her cause. But he can't find the alpha without Scott, because Scott is part of his pack. "You're the one he wants."
