In the episode of "Teen Wolf" that's airing immediately prior to the pre-show, Scott (Tyler Posey) and Kira (Arden Cho) fight to protect Satomi's pack from assassins and Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) and Malia (Shelley Hennig) discover the origins of The Dead Pool. The episode will re-air in its regularly scheduled timeslot on Monday, August 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by an all-new "Wolf Watch."
