I wanted to add something to this well done meta Rena posted.
Notice the similarities as well as the differences in these scenes.
Stiles is trapped (inside) the locker begging the nogitsune to let him out. Here he’s all calm and cool. Looking back at the Rena’s meta she points out that the lockers may represent stiles’ mind.
In this scene we see Lydia backing up in the hallway, but notice the lockers behind her are open, but when the camera pans to the nogitsune we see that he’s upset and the lockers are slamming shut behind him. Does this mean Lydia was able to enter stiles’ mind? A place he thought was only reserved for him and stiles? Possibly.
It’s already been shown that Lydia has some type of link to stiles’ subconscious because earlier in the season Lydia is sure that stiles was at the echo house when he went missing. He wasn’t there physically but he was there mentally. Also, we see her reacting to the mri hours before it started.
Anyway, we know that the next episode is filled with flashbacks, but my question is are we sure this is Lydia’s memory or is she reliving one of stiles’ memories?
In stiles’ dream from 3x13 as mentioned in the above meta, he’s approaching the nemeton but what I noticed was the lights … look familiar?
The lights are similiar to the lights on the field the night Lydia was attacked. Since we know this is one of stiles’ nightmares could this be why Lydia is reliving that specific moment in 3x22?
Is it possible that the nogitsune is causing stiles more pain by making lydia relive one of the worst moments of not only her life but his? Hmmm…
