Episode 2×11 : Battlefield

Boyd and Erica decide to leave Beacon Hills in search of a new pack. They think they heard wolf howls in the preserve but it turned out to be Hunters. They’re chased through the woods and shot mercilessly with arrows by Allison.
Peter returns and offers Derek some advice on the power of human love. He also claims he knows of a way to save Jackson – through Lydia.
It’s the lacrosse championship game and Stiles gets to play with the team. His dad is proud, everyone is proud and he scores a goal or two. Gerard threatens Scott with the idea of Jackson killing someone he loves if he doesn’t offer him Derek’s whereabouts by the end of the game. Isaac turns up at the game determined to win and helps Scott try to take Gerard down. It doesn’t go down so well. Scott returns to the field where the team has just won. The lights go out and when they’re turned back on, Jackson is on the field with no pulse and Stiles is missing. His dad is going out of his mind.

Memorable Quotes

  • “You know when you’re drowning, you don’t actually inhale until right before you black out. It’s called voluntary apnoea.  It’s like no matter how much you’re freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in is so strong that you won’t actually open your mouth until you feel like your head’s exploding – and when you finally do let it in that’s when it stops hurting. It’s not scary any more, it’s actually kinda peaceful.”

  • “I guess that makes me lucky, ’cause I don’t have anyone.”
  • “Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will be joining others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today… Were fighting for our right to live… but as the day the world declared in one voice: we will not go quietly into the night. Today we celebrate our independence day.”
  • “Hit me, hit  me, I can see that its cathartic for you. Letting go of all the anger, self loathing and hatred that comes with total and complete failure.”
  • “Scott, the other night seeing my dad get hit over the head by Matt while I’m lying there and I can’t even move. It just – I wanna help, you know, but I can’t do the things you can do. I can’t… We’re losing dude.”

  • Gerard: “This would be so much more if it were half-time.”
  • “Your best ally has always been anger, Derek, but what you lack most is heart. That’s why you’ve always known that you need Scott more than anyone. And even somebody as burned and dead on the inside as me knows better than to underestimate the simple yet undeniable power of human love.”
