Episode Plot Summary
S1 E1: Pilot
The episode opens with Alan having a typical school day in Queens, New York City, being bullied as a "weeaboo" and a "nerd" by the majority of school ("Lonesome Loser" by Little River Band plays during this montage), except for one friend - Jake. Once he arrives at his home in the Queens suburbs in the afternoon, he wishes that life for him wasn't so boring before he goes to sleep that night...
When he wakes up the next day, he discovers that he has transformed into a Hanyo (more specifically, a wolf Hanyo). His mother freaks out, kicking him out of her house. Alan then travels throughout Queens, accidentally killing a man along the way ("King of Pain" by The Police plays during this).
Meanwhile, at a Brooklyn police station, two 911 calls are made: one from a single mother who claims that not only his son has gone missing, but there was a "wolf child" in her house, and the second is from a scared woman reporting that a man was killed, with his corpse's chest having a slash on it. Detective John Hogan is soon on the case.
