|“|| "You don't understand, do you? It's a riddle. Do you know any riddles, Stiles?"|
"What gets bigger the more you take away?"
"What gets wetter the more it dries?"
"When is a door not a door?"
"...When it's ajar."
"Everyone has it, but no one can lose it. What is it?"
"Everyone has it, but no one can lose it. What is it, Stiles?"
"I don't-I don't know!"
Stiles makes a panicked late-night phone call to Scott after he finds himself in a strange location with his leg in a steel trap. Lydia leads them to the mental health center where Barrow was committed, only to find that Stiles is not there. Scott's mother and father find Stiles, who had been sleepwalking. Derek and Kira find Stiles's baseball bat at the power station, and Derek deduces that Kira was indirectly responsible for the Nogitsune taking over Stiles's body. Stiles has an MRI scan to test for frontotemporal dementia, the same illness that caused his mother's death. The power then goes out, due to the Nogitsune having damaged the wiring on the roof the previous night. The Nogitsune, now in complete control of Stiles's body, confronts the remaining Oni, who are revealed to be led by Kira's mother.
