Lesson from episode - If people ever stop dying or going missing at Beacon Hills High, they really should offer emergency training to their students and community.Lesson from screencaps - green emergency lighting flatters no one
Best confirmation - Derek loved and sacrificed Paige, not Peter. I knew they couldn't make the episode unreliable as well as the narrators.
Best Peter lines -
1. "Personally I think if we keep letting them beat the living cr** out of us, they'll tire and give up."
2. "Then I'll do it, but I'd prefer to be out there with an advantage." Stiles: "Advantage? Like what? You mean like a weapon?" Peter: "Something better than a baseball bat."
3. Melissa: "You're supposed to be dead." Peter: "I get that a lot actually."
4. "Oh, we've got a problem. Big problem."
5. "I'd like to volunteer a different method of persuasion. Let's torture her." Derek: "Works for me."
Best Other Lines -
6. Melissa: "You're him aren't you?" Duke: "Him?" Melissa: "The bad guy."
5. Scott: "I'll distract them." Derek: "You mean fight them." Scott: "Whatever I have to do." Derek: "I'll help you." - I like Derek and Scott working together instead of rivals like they are being positioned to be
4. Stiles to Cora: "You know you're a lot easier to talk to when you're completely unconscious."
3. SuperWolf: "We're trying not to hurt you." Scott: "Try harder."
2. Melissa: "Well if that means I should continue to be profoundly terrified, then don't worry about it. I've got that covered."
1. Stiles: "I don't want to find my father's body."
