Deaton: "So, do we have a plan?"
Peter: "Scott is going to try and dig through pale and sickly Evil-Stiles' mind to unearth pale and sickly Real-Stiles, then guide him back from the depths of his own subconscious. But he's not going in alone."
Scott: "What do you mean?"
Peter: "Somebody needs to go in with you."
Scott: "So, what do we do if we find him?"
Peter: "You're going to have to guide him out somehow. Try to give him back control of his mind, his body..."
Lydia: "Could you elaborate on the 'somehow?' It's not feeling very specific at the moment."
Peter: "...Improvise."

De-Void is the twenty-second episode of Season 3 and the forty-sixth episode of Teen Wolf.


Scott and Lydia join forces. Meanwhile, Stilinski faces a review board.


Sheriff Stilinski faces a review board, but Scott's father saves his job at the last minute. Agent McCall reveals to Sheriff Stilinski that he only came back to Beacon Hills to make amends with his son. Meanwhile, the Nogitsune stabs himself and releases a swarm of flies, sending them after Aiden, Ethan, Isaac and Derek. Having been placed under the spell of the Nogitsune, Derek tries to get revenge on Chris, by covering him in gasoline and attempting to burn him; however, thanks to his Hunter training, Chris is able to free himself and hold Derek off until the Nogitsune's control breaks. Aiden, Ethan, and Isaac nearly kill each other but are saved by Kira and Allison. With guidance from Peter, Scott and Lydia are able to enter Stiles's mind, and manage to free Stiles from the Nogitsune's control. However, Lydia is kidnapped by the Nogitsune, who is now independent and looks exactly like Stiles.


Main Cast[]

Supporting Cast[]

Guest Cast[]

  • Shelley Robertson as Committee Chairwoman
  • Rebecca Zagorin as Voice


  • This episode marks the third time a character is infected with Nogitsune flies, when Derek Hale, Isaac Lahey, Ethan, and Aiden are each infected in different ways. The Nogitsune used the flies to lower their inhibitions and increase their existing anger so that they would create a distraction for the McCall Pack.
    • The first time Nogitsune flies were used was in Echo House, when Oliver was controlled by him after accidentally swallowing one.
    • The second time Nogitsune flies were used was in The Fox and the Wolf, after Ken Yukimura accidentally swallowed one, though it was removed before he could be controlled.
  • Peter Hale appears in this episode. He was last seen in Letharia Vulpina.
  • Peter teaches Scott to use the memory-sharing ritual with his claws in order to bring Lydia with him into Stiles's mind to give him back control over his body.
    • This ritual was first shown in Season 1's Wolf's Bane when Peter performed it on Scott, and was last used by Peter on Isaac in Chaos Rising.
    • This is the first time Scott has ever performed this ritual.
  • Alan Deaton, Scott, and Lydia debate the merits of turning Stiles into a Werewolf to free him from the Nogitsune's control. This possible course of action was first suggested in Echo House after Deaton translated the Shugendo scroll's instructions, which stated that the best way to remove the Nogitsune from its vessel would be to change the vessel's body.
    • However, Peter stated that Stiles was unlikely to survive Scott's Bite in his current condition, implying that humans who are in weak health are more likely to reject the Bite than healthy humans.
  • After somewhere between seven and ten episodes, the Nogitsune has finally separated himself from Stiles, though he is still using Stiles' exact appearance. It was first implied that something was wrong with Stiles in Anchors and first revealed that he was possessed in Silverfinger.
  • The mysterious secret of Rafael McCall's that Stiles is said to know was once again referenced in this episode when the Nogitsune/Stiles was talking to Melissa McCall. This was first referenced by the Nogitsune/Stiles to Rafael in Illuminated. It is implied that whatever the secret is has to do with why Rafael left Scott and Melissa when Scott was a child.
  • As part of the deal she made with Peter, Lydia agrees to tell Peter the name of his daughter, Malia Tate, as payment for his assistance. It was first discovered that Peter was Malia's biological father in Letharia Vulpina.
    • It is also revealed that Lydia has been further researching Malia since she made this discovery with Allison.
  • Deaton uses Kanima venom to paralyze the Nogitsune/Stiles while they come up with an alternate plan. Kanima venom was last seen in Letharia Vulpina when Deaton used it against Ikeda and his wolf Yuki.
  • In Isaac's fly-rage, he references Vernon Boyd and Erica Reyes and the fact that they were killed.
  • In Lydia's hallucination, she calls out Jackson Whittemore's name. He was last mentioned in Tattoo and was last seen in Season 2's Master Plan.
  • Talia Hale's claws were brought out by Derek in this episode. They were last seen in Letharia Vulpina.
  • While inside Stiles' mind, the Nogitsune pulls each of them into a hallucination/flashback:
    • Scott returns to the scene from Currents when he and Allison almost kissed while hiding from her father. However, he is able to break out of it when he remembers that they're broken up.
    • Lydia returns to the events of Season 1's Formality, where she is in her bloody Winter Formal dress after Peter attacked her. The hallucination even involved the same song played in the episode, "Not Just A Girl" by She Wants Revenge, while she looked for Jackson.


  • The title refers to the fact that the Nogitsune, a Void Kitsune, is exorcised from Stiles Stilinski's body. However, it is more accurate to say that the Nogitsune made Stiles a duplicate body while using his original body as a vessel.
  • Stiles's reaction to Scott's howl, and the effect it had on him, signify his place in the pack despite being Human.
