Episode 1×06 : Heart Monitor

Derek attacks Scott in an underground parking lot to train him in the art of stealth. He tells Scott that pain is what keeps them human and then goes on to break Scott’s fingers to illustrate what he just said. Stiles, decides to take it upon himself to be Scott’s Yoda and teach Scott control; this involves throwing balls in Scott’s face and having him get beaten up. They find out that anger makes Scott feel stronger and realises that he can’t be with Allison because she makes him weak. In Finstock’s class, Scott nearly loses control as his heart rate rockets, but Allison brings him back by holding his hand – she gives him control. Stiles calls this control Scott’s anchor.
Meanwhile, Jackson looks ill and sleep deprived. In the locker rooms, he looks in the mirror and a clawed hand tries to make its way out of his mouth.
Derek visits Peter and tries to get through to him by telling him about Laura being murdered. He gets no response. Outside, Derek finds a slip of paper on his windscreen and drives off. He’s on a mission. Derek confronts Deaton asking him what he knows of a marked deer that was found three months earlier; Deaton lies and says he knows nothing about it and Derek can tell and attacks Deaton. Scott arrives and stops Derek, telling him to meet him at the school. At the school, Scott howls into the speaker system. Derek is not impressed and threatens to kill the both of them. The Alpha emerges and attacks Derek first, clawing into his back and throwing him away. Scott and Stiles run into the school.
