Cates practices his batting. Vivian emerges from the house and makes some stupid "I'm a chick, so I don't know sports" comment that makes me want to pull out her insipid hair. He begs her for good news about Sarah. "Her body is starting to reject itself," Vivian says sadly. Her husband remarks that he can certainly relate. "You look like you're in pain. Are you?" she asks, without the level of concern one might expect a wife to have for her dying husband. And here we go again: "Even pain gets bored occasionally. Even pain gets pissed off," blasts Cates. Man, I am going to miss him if he dies. Every time he opens his mouth, I know something spectacular will ooze out of it. I'm quitting this scene.
The red Mustang stops, and we see Sophia and Luke inside it. She's begging him for more juicy information, but he's gently resisting because he wants to know some of Sophia's secrets first. She confesses to Xeroxing her ass and putting it on a flyer that protested the school's attempt to enforce a strict dress code. Luke is completely aroused by that and decides to return the favor. He tells her that It is like "a full-on body rush, but more. Your spirit goes totally pyro." To prove it, he compares a still car to most humans, and then floors the gas pedal with the windows down as a way of demonstrating the wolfish rush. There's a lame rock tune playing as Sophia's hair swirls and she widens her eyes and tries to look like driving 60 mph through the center of town is the best damn thing she's ever goddamn done, goddammit. Luke's eyes glow orange, which is either a sign of wolf transformation or erection, or indigestion. They're pretty fast and loose with the supernatural stuff. Donner notices the red rocket -- the car, not...anything else -- and pulls it over. When he sees Sophia, he flips out and drags her into his own car, swearing he'll give her the truth and that she needs to stop thinking the "kids from the hill" are privy to some special secret.
