Episode 3×07 : Currents

Danny is targeted by the Darach because he got close to figuring out the importance of Beacon Hills – it is an actual beacon of energy because of the Telluric currents. They use these currents to find Deaton after he is taken by the Darach – healers are the target and two doctors have already been taken – giants moths fly into a car and out of mirrors and we see Darach chilling either in the backseat or from the other world beyond the mirror (or something).
The Alphas are coming after Derek that night and Boyd and Isaac come up with a plan to protect Derek – by flooding the loft and electrocuting the Alphas. It doesn’t go so well. Derek is forced to kill Boyd. Stiles arrives to find Boyd dead and Derek kneeling on the beside him, his hands shaking – Stiles touches Derek to comfort him.
Meanwhile, Scott finds Deaton hanging around in the bank but he’s surrounded by mountain ash so can’t pass. Scott tries to push through the barrier – his eyes turn red and Deaton sees. Luckily, the Sheriff comes and saves Deaton because he’s so damn clever and figured it out. While the Sheriff goes to call an ambulance, Deaton tells Scott that he has the potential to become an alpha – a true alpha.
