"First of all, I've seen enough horror movies to know you don't split up when you're in a big scary asylum, and there's a crazed killer on the loose. Second, I think it's fair to say that my microwave fingers and the sun are about the only things around here that seem to have any effect on Russell, so the way I see it, it's me protecting you from him instead of the other way around. Third, I got a headache and I gotta pee something fierce, so I'd just as soon get this over with."
Alcide giggles and follows her, dragging Doug after.
The shifters got gotten by wooden bullets, silver core, which isn't necessary for a shifter to die but probably this is somebody who either A) Hates shifters and just went to the Stake House or whatever to get a bunch of stuff at once, B) Doesn't know the rules about shifters yet, C) Was not hate-criming -- which is a theory with at least two strikes against it now -- or D) Was on the hunt for anything supernatural.
In the books, a similar storyline came about because of some American politics stuff I won't spoil for you, but basically it was A because of D and B. Given what we see at the end of the episode, though, I still don't know how "shifters" could be under such scrutiny on this show, but it does otherwise seem pretty similar. Any case, we know it's a hate crime. Taking out two specific people for no reason, point-blank with anti-supe weapons, basically says so.
Jason: "You know what's fucked up? All this supernatural shit, these killings? They've been going on for years. Us humans just started paying attention because the vamps came out of the coffin... But before that, the supes had been killing people, making it look all natural, and we've been none the fucking wiser. For example, my parents. The vampires, they've been getting away with this shit forever."
Andy: "Stop talking about your parents and your lame storyline and come look over here at these tire tracks, which I just magically can identify for some reason as BF Goodrich radials."
Jason: "But I'm still grunting dumbly about vamp..."
Andy: "-- Shooter stood right here and boom, shot down those poor people in cold blood."
Jason: "They never had a chance. I know! Just like my parents!"
Alcide, sniffing: "Wolves have been here."
Bill: "Oooh, good point. I forgot how Russell already had a cult. Now he has two! Two cults! Admittedly, the trashiest werewolves and nuttiest vampires, but that kinda comes with the cult territory."
Doug: "I've never been to New York City. If I die, I will never have made it to..."
Eric, verbatim: "-- New York City smells like pee and the people are rude."
