Not long before Christmas, Derrick and his friend, Quinn Baxter, smash the window of a car and steal the presents inside. As they make their escape, they are wished "Merry Christmas" by a Santa on the streets. Delighted by their success, they rifle through their loot before being attacked by a Krampus who is in a Santa Suit and declares, "you've been naughty!" The creature catches hold of Quinn, hitting him mercilessly with a whip before stuffing him into a sack. Derrick manages to hide in a car, but is discovered by Krampus. It slashes at him with claws, leaving two long cuts down his cheek, before leaving with Quinn slung over his shoulder.
The next morning, Nick and Hank are called to the crime scene of Quinn's abduction, where someone had found the body of Derrick. They find the stolen presents, a jacket with "QB" written on it, and a piece of coal. An officer walks up to them and shows them the body of Derrick. Wu enters the car to see if he can find a wallet for identification, but when he tries to search Derrick, he wakes up and freaks out, proving to not be dead after all.
At the hospital, Nick and Hank briefly discuss with Derrick's doctor how Derrick could have gotten the scratches on his face before they question Frank Bryce, Derrick's father. He expresses disappointment in his son and suggests that the jacket at the crime scene could belong to Quinn, Derrick's friend. The duo attempt to question a dazed and unwilling Derrick, learning that someone attacked Derrick and Quinn, and abducted the latter, before Derrick catches sight of a man in a Santa costume outside his room. He starts screaming and freaking out that the Santa was not going to get him. Nick and Hank question the man in the Santa costume, but he has an alibi, as he was in the hospital "spreading Christmas cheer" at the time Derrick and Quinn were attacked.
