"How am I supposed to tell if I'm dreaming this or not?"
Even though it has been months since Kira and Scott had killed the Void, Stiles is still struggling to tell the difference between dreams and reality. Stiles believes that the only way to prove that he is awake is to cause himself physical harm, which is why Stiles starts to cut almost daily. Derek is the first one to find out about Stiles's problem due to a tip off from a very concerned Scott. Derek is determined to help Stiles be able to tell the difference between dreams and reality even if it calls for the most drastic mesures.
