"You know the question I had after Gerard first told me about our family. Why us? He quoted me Winston Churchill: The price of greatness is responsibility. Personally, I think it's more about knowledge. What we know. The truth we know about the world. That makes us responsible... for a young couple, their new born daughter, anyone who doesn't have the power to defend themselves. Are you starting to get it?"
Chris to his daughter at the morgue[src]

Chris tells the girls that they will be staying in tonight because of the curfew. Allison argues with him but gets nowhere. Later that night, Derek pulls into a gas station and starts filling the tank. Chris and his hunters pull into the same station, blocking him from the front while another hunter pulls up behind, boxing him in. The situation is tense back at the gas station. Derek finishes filling the tank without saying anything to any of the hunters. Chris compliments him on the car. "Black cars, though, very hard to keep clean." He rubs at a spot on the roof and then gets the windshield washer and starts cleaning the Camaro's glass. "Personally, I'm very protective of the things I love. That's something I learned from my family. You don't have much of that these days, do you?" He turns to look at Derek, and Derek clenches his fist. Chris watches as Derek opens his hand again, but there are no claws. Chris thinks they've come to some sort of understanding, but as he turns to go, Derek tells him that he forgot to check the oil. Chris orders one of his men to check the oil. The hunter busts in the driver's side window. The hunters leave, their threats having been made clear. Back home, Allison sneaks back in and kisses Scott as her dad secretly watches.[3]

Chris' sister arrives into town but get stuck hunting a werewolf along the way and calls Chris for backup. Allison notices her father leaving in the middle of the night and asks him what's going on. He tells her that Kate texted and asked him to pick her up. Allison notes that it's 2am, but Chris tells her that Kate just has a flat tire so it's nothing to worry about. Chris pulls up and orders Kate into the car. "Not even a hello, nice to see you?" "All I've got at the moment is 'Please put the assault rifle away before someone notices,'" he says. Kate tells him that she saw two werewolves and one of them tried to kill her. Chris tells his sister that the beta can't lead them to the alpha if she kills him first. She counters that she won't be doing any hunting if she's dead. He asks how long it will take the beta to die, and Kate says about 48 hours. The next morning, Chris and Kate return from shopping and Chris finds Allison and Scott hiding behind a car and asks them to help with the groceries. Allison comes out and Scott asks her if she still wants to study. Chris informs him that Allison will study better on her own. Scott tells her goodbye, and Chris says they'll see each other next at school. Kate calls her brother out on being overprotective and tells Scott that he's staying for dinner. "Do you eat meat?" Chris asks him. Scott nods nervously and tries to scoot by him back into the house. Chris claps him on the shoulder and leads him inside. At dinner,[4]
