Episode 1×08 : Lunatic

Following Scott’s break up with Allison, Stiles takes him to the woods to get drunk. It’s the night before the full moon, and when two guys approach Scott and Stiles and take their bottle of Jack, Scott nearly attacks them. After Scott and Stiles leave, the two guys are dragged and killed, one of them dropped head first into a burning barrel.
At school, Scott reveals that he can sense emotions easier during the full moon and Stiles asks him to see what Lydia thinks of him; Scott takes Lydia into an office and asks her about Allison, Lydia says Allison just wants to be friends then throws herself at Scott; they make out. During practice, Scott attacks Danny. Stiles realises that Scott kissed Lydia and after school he handcuffs Scott to his radiator. Scott escapes and runs off in search of Allison to find her with Jackson, and though they’re only talking, Scott imagines them kissing and loses it. Derek intervenes when Scott tries to attack and roars at him, bringing Scott back to his senses.
Meanwhile, as Stiles drives around town looking for Scott, he comes across a crime scene swarming with police and ambulances. Stiles thinks the worst and is frantically looking for his dad. The Sheriff calls out Stiles’ name and Stiles pulls him into a hug.
Derek takes Scott home. Scott tells him that he can’t be with Allison and be a werewolf too and Derek tells Scott there may be a cure – killing the Alpha that bit you.
Jackson finds a claw on his car from where Scott perched on it earlier and begins to piece everything together.
