03x10 - Truth, Changes, Everything

Previously on "Bitten".

Jeremy stepped down.

Elena has control of the Pack.

Anyone has the right to challenge.

If you choose to stay I won't demand your loyalty.

I'll promise you mine.

You're my Alpha.

Where are the men? Get them in here!

No one is here to help you, father.

This is your fate.

(SCREAMING)

(GRUNTING)

(FLESH RIPPING)

My brothers, this is the man who killed your Alpha.

Now we can exact our revenge.

This wire is now where nerves connect to uterus.

I can make this 1000 times worse than childbirth.

(BUZZING)

(HIGH-PITCHED SCREAM)

(ROARING)

Haight: Elena, you can't Change for a little while.

You risk tearing your uterine wall, the internal bleeding could kill you.

Elena: Roman killed her, not you.

Sasha: I broke the rules, Natalya should never have known what I was.

That's why we keep secrets, because the truth changes everything.

Elena's voice: If they knew what the future might hold, they'd look at me differently. They'd be afraid.

Radio host: In local news, our top story is the discovery of the body of slain State Trooper Anthony Rafalski in addition to the recent disappearance of former Sheriff Karen Morgan. Sam Talbot, Mayor of Bear Valley, will be speaking out at noon tomorrow at City Hall to address citizen concerns about local safety.

Elena's voice: There's a part of me that wants to tear it all down. Fate is pushing us in this direction. It has been, all along.

We'll hole up here.

Sasha: The smell.

It's like leather soup.

This is what it's come to.

It worked well enough for the Spanish, it'll work for us.

We regroup, get our numbers up.

Whoa...

Check this out.

We're the outlaws now.

Elena's voice: It's time to embrace our fate. This won't stop until it happens. So let it come.

My friend, all of our money is in this room.

It's in the dumbwaiter.

If you set us free you could have it all.

He doesn't speak English.

Great, so we can talk. What's the plan?

(DOOR OPENS; FOOTSTEPS)

The plan was never to be in your own cage.

That much is obvious.

You would have given yourselves a toilet.

No, just a grate in the floor.

I'm guessing mostly blood goes down there.

Yours will be next.

There is too much death, too much bloodshed.

In order to eliminate war between Packs, I will eliminate Packs.

All of us, under one Alpha.

You?

Yeah.

The other Alphas will resist this.

The numbers are in my favour.

I will roll across all territories, and they will bow or die.

Tell me, in a room with so much lore, are there tales of being hunted?

Every Pack has been hunted, in one way or another.

During Soviet era, there was a bounty on wolves.

1.5 million were killed, hunters were paid the equivalent of $75.

$75, that is how much we were worth.

But you, Danvers, are priceless.

And why is that?

In Russia, we have a tradition called Okhota, "the Hunt".

The new Alpha allows his Pack to hunt the old.

As a gift.

You think I'm going to let you force me to Change, as a gift?

Tomorrow at noon my Pack will hunt you.

If you refuse, we will kill Nick.

(SCOFFING) They'll kill me anyway.

Enjoy the cold comfort of your cage.

Clay: I'm going to argue with you about this, darlin'.

I am going, and you're going to stay.

I'm not going to let you come with me, not in your condition.

You can't go back there alone.

They have Jeremy and Nick.

He won't have killed Jeremy, not yet.

Konstantin will take advantage of his position.

There is a Russian tradition to hunt the defeated Alpha.

And they will not miss the chance to do so.

Jeremy's no longer Alpha.

But if Konstantin doesn't know that, there's no way Jeremy will give that up.

What about Nick? What happens with him?

There is no provision for the second.

Okay, we treat this like a rescue mission, until we know what we're dealing with.

Tradition marks the beginning of the Hunt at midday.

If they're all out there, then the house is empty.

We get there, you go in and find Nick.

The rest of us, we go after Jeremy.

The rest of us?

Against how many of them?

We call Marsten.

Cain. Anson.

Call them all.

Got it?

(PHONE RINGING)

Gentlemen.

Gentlemen, please.

A moment, oof! Heh!

There are but two ways to judge a man at first sight.

His shoes, and his watch.

Not the calibre or the quality, but the care.

See, a poor man can still buff his shoes to a smart shine.

He can still polish his watch.

These things say... I respect myself.

There is but one way, ultimately, to judge a werewolf, the grace with which he dies.

We will let you live if you pledge allegiance to Konstantin Saranin.

Absurd.

I serve Elena Michaels.

My Alpha is Elena Michaels.

♪ ♪

We won't stop chasing you until you take Konstantin Saranin as your Alpha!

Suck it, bro! I follow Elena Michaels!

There has been an interesting development.

My Pack has been tracking yours.

Offering them a chance to live, if they accept me as their new Alpha.

And they won't accept you.

You are right.

Because, according to them, their Alpha is Elena Michaels.

Is that true?

I am the Alpha that you want to hunt.

You have my confession, recorded on video.

And your Pack will get more than enough satisfaction from my death.

Maybe.

Maybe not.

Nick, brace yourself.

(GROAN)

(CURRENT BUZZING)

(YELLING)

(GASPS OF PAIN)

You know, I'm not afraid to die, but killing an injured man, that's a dirty play, even for you.

I'm not going to kill you, Nick.

Not yet.

I need you to do something for me.

I want Elena, here at Stonehaven.

(SCOFFING)

And you just assume she's going to come here?

Tell her I will kill Jeremy if she does not.

If she does not show, she's not worthy of leading your Pack.

We will hunt Jeremy.

Then, we will continue the slaughter, starting with the baby, um...

Rocco, is it?

I didn't know that to rise to the top, you had to stoop so low as to threaten an innocent child.

Innocent, he cannot be innocent if he's born with original sin.

Anyway, the choice is Elena's, not mine.

She has until noon tomorrow.

If she wants this to stop, if she truly is Alpha, she will come.

(DOOR OPENS, HINGES CREAK)

(DOOR SLAMS SHUT)

Elena?

Elena?

(SIGHING)

It's not just Jeremy, he's threatening everybody.

Including Rocco.

Is Rachel alone?

Paige is there. She's training Rachel.

If I don't give myself up, there'll just be more bloodshed.

We can't trust Konstantin.

We have to stick to the plan.

Ambush the Russians when they bring Jeremy out.

What, just the five of us?

We've called in the others.

And they haven't called back, have they?

He's using the War Room records to track down the Pack.

He's offering them a chance to fold in.

What happens when they say "no"?

Now the Pack is dying.

Only because they're loyal.

They chose to be so.

We all did.

Nick, go to Rachel's.

If this is really it, that's where you need to be.

And if this is it?

We go down swinging.

(SCOFFING) Wolf surrounds himself with the artefacts of man, why?

Destroyer of earth, man will be extinct, soon enough.

All these things will fade away, burn up in smoke.

All these things are mine, now.

I will remove the artefacts if they offend you.

Where is your father's body?

Sent back to Russia.

To be laid out?

To be buried.

The dead still feel for a time after their death.

Your father feels your absence.

How do you honour him?

I will honour him by hunting the Alpha of the North American Pack.

Elena Michaels, if she shows up.

If not, Jeremy Danvers.

The hunt honours you, not him.

Danvers ripped out my father's throat.

You stood by and watched, I think.

Taking your father's seat before his body hit the floor.

(SCOFFING)

You have always been a little mudak, Konstantin.

Like a puppy, showing his white, soft belly, pissing on the rug when he is scared.

I will kill Jeremy Danvers.

What?

I have an anger that needs calming.

He is the one who is in the cage, so I will take him.

That was not the plan.

I can be angry with him, or I can be angry with you.

You choose.

And what will my men hunt?

Their convictions.

I see it now.

This is a wolf.

Finally, something good in this house.

Clay: Okay now, you do the same.

Pull your arm back.

(IMPACT OF KNIFE ON TARGET)

Alexei: Straight to the throat.

Clay: And you throw it right through.

Keep your eye on the target.

I see your concern.

(SIGHING)

Four of us against the Russians.

Twelve hours before all our lives change.

For the good, or the bad.

Or they don't change at all.

That's worse.

Your mother would do this, too.

She would go quiet when she was working out the plan.

The less anyone knows, the better.

I thought that once, too.

But then I found you, and you helped me.

Let me do the same for you.

I keep seeing this premonition, of me, burning the house to the ground.

Paige said it won't stop until it happens.

Until... what happens?

Until I burn it down.

There has to be something more than just an eye for an eye.

This has to end.

Elena?

Promise me you won't stop me.

And promise me that you won't tell Clay, not until it's over.

He can't know what I'm going to do.

But when it's done...

I want him to know why.

Where's Paige?

Gone.

Where?

Elena called 10 minutes ago.

She had something for her to do.

No, no, she's got to get back here.

She said it was urgent.

Okay.

Pack your things. We got to get out of here.

Let's go, now.

A "hello" would be nice.

Rachel, the Russians are on their way here.

I'm not running. Rocco's been through enough.

And you're obviously injured.

No, we have to go.

Look, I'm not exactly in the best fighting form here.

In four hours, they'll bring Jeremy out.

We hide in the woods, and we rescue him.
