Episode 3×05 : Frayed

On the way to a cross-country meet, we see flashbacks to an earlier fight where it’s believed Derek fell to his death (lol, like we even believed that for a second).
Morrell takes an injured Ennis to Deaton who reluctantly helps only to have Ennis murdered by Deucalion.
Derek (surprise, surprise)  turns out to have survived and collapses in front of Ms. Blake’s car.
