Back at Stonehaven, everyone in the Pack grieves Pete’s death differently.
Clay convinces Elena to go for a run as a means of grieving, but it ends with the two of them having shifted back to human and exchanging some kisses and caresses. Elena tells Clay it was a mistake, but Clay understands that it’s more than that. Elena really doesn’t know who she wants, and the more time she spends with Clay and away from Philip…
Elena is still conflicted, but she sure does want her revenge on the Mutt who killed Pete. It’s interesting to see her attitude change – she still doesn’t want to be a part of this life and the violence, but when it comes to her Pack, she’s willing… even though she still doesn’t want to fully accept the Pack as family.
When Elena and Clay track the Mutt to a motel and search his room, they find a scrapbook of articles about murders – and trophies from each murder. So now they know that someone is turning serial killers into werewolves, and it looks like it’s none other than Karl Marsten and another Mutt. So much for Karl supposedly helping the Pack.
Nick, Jeremy, Clay and Elena go back to the motel in hopes of taking down the Mutt and anyone else there. They narrowly miss getting their heads blown off by a trap set by the Mutt on the door. He’s not there, but he’s left a message – he wants his scrapbook back. Something tells me they don’t intend to let that happen, but the question is – how will they stop them?
Meanwhile back in Toronto, Logan has gone home to speak at conference. He’s about to leave him home when he gets an unexpected visitor – a former Pack member by the name of Daniel Santos. Now he’s offering his help with this Mutt problem if Logan can help him convince Jeremy to let him back in the Pack. All of these random offers of help seem kind of fishy to me. Plus, Daniel is really smug, like he knows a lot more than he’s even hinting at.
Overall, it was another good episode with a decent balance of action and character development, mostly in terms of Elena, but there were also some insights into Jeremy that were interesting, most notably his guilt over Pete’s death and the pressure he feels as Alpha. There are a lot of trust issues on all different levels, and it may take some leaps of faith to get to the bottom of what’s going on with the Mutts. Can Jeremy – or any of the Pack – take the chance?
