Isaac asked to become a werewolf to feel powerful and confident after all the abuse from his father, who is murdered by the Kanima at the beginning of Season 2.
Isaac was the first of Derek’s Beta werewolves to gain control of his animal side during the full moon, and in spite of his dark family-life, Isaac has good intentions and a warm heart. At first, Isaac did not like Scott and did not trust him, because he believed Scott was a loser because he wondered how Scott survived so long without a pack. Nevertheless, he eventually trusted Scott when he realized he has good intentions, and becomes friends with him. Among the dangerous events throughout Season 2, Isaac sides with Scott, revealing that he trusts him and holds onto Scott’s friendship because he doesn’t have anyone there for him.

He later participates in helping Scott and Derek capture Boyd and Cora, who are rabid from the full moon with assistance from Chris Argent.

With Scott becoming a True Alpha, Isaac joins his Pack.

In “Anchors”, Isaac starts acting on his feelings towards Allison, even attempting to kiss her, following her for her protection and arriving at her apartment, to her mutual consent. He is open about this with Scott who is evidently uncomfortable at their budding relationship. Isaac still holds a grudge towards Ethan and Aiden saying they can’t join Scott’s Pack because of their part in Boyd’s murder and taking glee when Scott says no. After helping Allison with research on William Barrow, Isaac is confronted and “tagged” by the Oni. He later helps Allison and Chris retrieve information about the Oni, Kitsune and the Nogitsune from the Yakuza recluse, Katashi “Silver finger”.
