“Teen Wolf” Season 3 has a Stiles problem. The formerly lighthearted kid has been possessed by a nogitsune and no solution — other than maybe killing him — seems to be a permanent solution.

In the upcoming “Echo House” episode, Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) tries to keep his friends and family safe by being committed to an insane asylum, “Echo House.” But as this extended promo shows, it may not help. It may not even be Stiles in there.

Is it Stiles? The earnest young man asking Scott (Tyler Posey) and his father to commit him definitely seems to be the genuine article. Other scenes, however, indicate that this might all be another clever-fox strategy to achieve a mysterious goal.

The appearance of Malia (Shelley Hennig) in the asylum might support that theory. She doesn’t seem happy to see Stiles (hence the punch), but could the nogitsune be targeting the were-coyote girl?

The “Teen Wolf” episode, “Echo House,” airs Monday, Feb. 24 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
