Derek lures Scott into the shower while Peter Hale comes out behind him and scratches him. Peter who won Derek on his side now wants Scott to also join his pack.
Scotts vision of the truth
While Scott is on the floor he has a vision of what really happened in the fire. Kate, Alison's aunt had a relationship with Derek and betrayed him by burning his house down and killing his entire family.
Important: He also visualizes that Peter killed his own niece! Laura, Derek's sister, in order to become the Alpha. Derek doesn't know this.
So there's a constant feud between Peter Hale, Derek and Alison's family, Chris, her father and Kate, her aunt.

Scott runs away.
Something's up with Lydia
Jackson then takes Lydia to the hospital.
Alison goes to visit Lydia and they show snapshot of her convulsing with blood all over her. No one sees this in reality of course. It's just for us to see.
Scott realizes now his real enemy: Derek's uncle the Alpha who has now scratched Lydia.
Scott saves Derek
Derek, who is hung in Kates barn is just about to get killed but Scott shows up and saves him.
Scott saves Derek to help him get Alison. At first he doesn't want to help but Scott explains to him how Peter (Derek's uncke and the Alpha wolff) killed his sister (Derek's sister) the night of the fire and Derek now decides to help out.
Scott and Derek are caught by Alison and Kate
While Derek and Scott walk in the woods Derek feels that something is wrong and suddenly gets hit with an arrow and goes down. Scott is also caught and it turns out Alison along with Kate were the ones who attacked them.
Alison's father shows up
As Scott tries explaining that he only lied to protect her, Kate tells her to kill him but Alison says that she thought they were only going to catch them. Kate shoots Derek, pushes Alison down and is about to shoot Scott but is stopped suddenly by her brother Chris. He says he knows what she did in terms of burning Derek's house and tells her they only go by the code. He tells Alison that Scott never really hurt anyone.
Meanwhile, the Alpha is in the barn.
They all team up to fight Peter Hale, the alpha.
Peter, the Alpha shows up
Peter catches Kate and grabs her by the neck and tells her to apologize for massacring his family and leaving him to burn away for 6 years. She apologizes. He breaks her neck and says that it doesn't sound very sincere.
The final battle
He closes in on Alison and Scott tells her to run. They fight outside. Jackson and Stiles show up.
Jackson throws a molotov cocktail on the alpha, while he catches it. Alison shoots it with her arrow and the alpha is set on fire. He burns. Scott gets up and kicks him. Peter, the alpha falls. What's funny is that Scott who was supposed to protect her really does nothing. They handle it while he comes out with a random kick. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the kick that really hurt him.
Derek shows up and the ultimate betrayal is unveiled
Derek shows up and hovers over his uncle, Peter, and is about to finalize the kill. Scott screams no.
Because if he Doesn't let Scott do it he won't be cured. Derek wants to avenge his sisters death for himself.
Derek kills his uncle with one last scratch to the throat. He looks at Scott and says, "I'm the alpha now."
