This episode opens with Kira and Scott racing towards Stiles, who is at Derek’s lOFt where Sheriff Stilinski, the Argents and Derek all try their hardest – Allison started off things by trying to tazer Stiles/Nogitsune which didn’t go too well, then Derek attacked him, he was quickly overpowered by Stiles/Nogitsune, lastly Chris Argent drew his gun on Stiles which caused the Sheriff to go in defensive mode to protect his son. There is a stand off between them, and it only ends when Allison warns that this is exactly what Stiles/Nogitsune wants, then everyone has to protect Stiles when the oni show up.
As Kira and Scott arrive, the oni disappear with Stiles, he ends up in the basement of Eichen House, where Mrs Yukimura is looking at Reese’s body in the wall. She pulls out the last of her knives on Stiles/Nogitsune, but he takes it and stabs himself with it and says before a swarm of flies come streaming out, “Chaos is come again,” after he says this he disappears once again.
That isn’t the worst thing. A fly enters the hospital and lands on Isaac worming its way into his arm forcing him to wake. Kira and Scott crash at his house, we are given a sweet scene in the bed, kissing for the first time. A fly is seen trying to enter, but they don’t notice it.
Allison tells her father that she was the one that took the firing pin out of his gun so he couldn’t hurt Stiles. Chris doesn’t get angry but says “That’s why the women in our family are leaders,” Isaac who is channelling his inner season one Derek Hale, is seen sitting in the dark on Allison’s bed, who seems happy to see him, but there’s obviously something wrong with him.
At Derek’s left, he tries to figure out what the nogitsune wants by using the chess pieces, but Peter points out Derek isn’t healing from the wound caused by the oni and that chess isn’t the game of a nogitsune. As Peter leaves, a fly is seen entering Derek’s opened wound.
Meanwhile, in the locker room at Beacon High School, a fly enters Ethan. The same happens to Aiden as he and Lydia arrive at a parking lot where they find Stiles’ wounded body.
The next morning, Isaac is looking through Allison’s weapons. It’s clear he wants to kill the twins for they are responsible for the deaths of Erica and Boyd, although Allison says that they all agreed to give them a second chance. When Isaac leaves, Allison finds herself chained to her bed.
Sheriff Stilinski has a hearing, but Agent McCall saves his job. They talk about why he did it and that he just wanted to stay a little bit longer. The Sheriff adds that he should tell Scott the truth.
Stiles is brought to Scott’s house where Deaton injects him with kanima venom, which paralyzes him, while Derek shows up at Chris’ apartment to exact revenge on him for what Kate did to Derek’s entire family.
With time running out, Lydia calls Peter for help who tells them that they need to get inside Stiles’ head instead of turning him into a werewolf.
At the school, the twins fight just as Isaac shows up and under the influence of the nogitsune they all fight each other. Kira and Allison show up and stops him, they’re only partially successful and lock themselves in a room, but Ethan, Aiden and Isaac all fight each other again.
Lydia had promised Peter she will tell him about his child if he helps which he agrees at once and tells Lydia and Scott to get inside Stiles’ head and bring him back to the surface, as they do exactly that, they find themselves tied down in Eichen House.
While all this is happening, Derek continues to threaten Chris, going as far as dousing him in lighter fluid and teasing him with a lighter in front of his face.
Back in Stiles’ head, Scott and Lydia get separated – Lydia back to after homecoming and after she was bitten by Peter, and Scott is in a closet making out with Allison. This turns out to be a trick and Peter makes them realise this, and Lydia and Scott make it to the white room where Stiles is playing Go with the Nogitsune.
Allison and Kira hold their own against the three werewolves; Scott howls to Stiles, who wakes up and realises where he is, he destroys the game causing all three to wake. Lydia fulfils her promise and tells Peter Malia’s name, just as Stiles wakes.
Stiles pulls a large amount of bandage out of his mouth, once finished the bandaged man becomes real. But there’s a twist – the bandaged man is the real Stiles, while the nogitsune appears to be the Stiles that coughed up the bandages, that Stiles appears to have disappeared and taken Lydia with him.
