Episode 2×12 : Master Plan

Stiles is taken by Gerard and tossed in the basement where he finds Erica and Boyd tied up and powerless against the electrical volts running through their bodies. Gerard beats Stiles up. Later, Stiles is let go but we don’t see this, and Chris lets Erica and Boyd escape.
Melissa is at the morgue and finds that Jackson’s dead body is getting covered in a translucent veil and calls Scott. Isaac turns up too.
Peter unearthed his own bestiary on a laptop and realises that Jackson dying was all part of the plan – the Kanima will evolve into its Alpha form and it has wings. Derek calls Scott and Isaac at the morgue and they transport Jackson’s body to a warehouse. Chris turns up while they do this and offers his help to take down Gerard.
Allison is still under Gerard’s sway turns up at the warehouse with Gerard and a fight breaks out. Peter watches from a safe distance because it’s a spectator sport. Just as Allison is about to kill Derek, the Kanima holds her back and Gerard’s plan is revealed – he’s dying and he wants the bite to survive.
Scott forces Derek to bite Gerard – he’s happy for a while until black liquid pours out of him. Scott had a plan of his own and filled Gerard’s pills with mountain ash. Gerard commands the Kanima to kill them all and Stiles turns up and runs the Kanima over. Lydia gets out of the car and shows the spare to Jackson and he goes back to normal. Peter and Derek claw him from both sides and he turns into a werewolf.
When they turn around, Gerard is gone but it’s fine because the next day Deaton and Ms. Morrell are dressed in leather and plan on finding him.
Erica and Boyd run into a pack of Alphas who surround them and extend their claws.  At the Hale House, the Alpha pack symbol is graffiti-d on the door.
Meanwhile, summer break has just begun and Stiles and Scott head out to the field to play lacrosse.
