Pilot is the first episode of Season 1 and the first episode of the series overall.
The episode opens with Seth (Lucas Till) arriving at a new school and immediately having a violent encounter with Jackson (Colton Haynes), the school's resident bully. However, he easily knocks Jackson to the ground and walks away, earning applause from the other students watching the fight. Jackson tells his friends that he'll "kill" Seth soon.
While sitting alone at lunch, he meets Allison (Crystal Reed), another new student who sits at his table as she feels left out. They start talking with each other and bond as a result.
