Episode 2×07 : Restraint

The Kanima kills a man in the woods, goes to kill his wife but doesn’t after finding out she’s pregnant. The Kanima’s Master later visits the woman in hospital after she’s given birth and kills her himself.
The bestiary translation suggests that the kanima should be a werewolf but a conflict in their past needs to be resolves before they can become one. They decide they need to know about Jackson’s parents – Allison offers to find out – seeks out Jackson and in his fugue state, freaks her out, sending her heartbeat rocketing – Scott hears and runs to the locker room just in time to see Jackson pulling his shorts on. They fight and end up in detention along with Allison, Stiles, Erica and Matt.
Jackson turns into the Kanima, warns everyone to stay out of his way by writing creepily on the blackboard and jumps out the window. We’re led to believe Harris is the Kanima Master.
Scott is called out of detention where Victoria warns him against seeing Allison.
Lydia meets ‘the boy’ where she finds out that he’s really Peter who’s buried under the Hale House.
