Read the Printed Word!
Idk if anyone’s already pointed this out, but I was on soundtrack.mtv.com looking up the music they used in tonight’s episode and I found this, and I was like, what is Onis? Is it a name? Then I realized it must be plural and that it’s referring to those creepy ninja warriors that appeared out of the dark. 
So I googled “oni mythology” just to see if I could find anything and I found a wikipedia page on it. Here are a few interesting bits:

“Depictions of oni vary widely but usually portray them as hideous, gigantic ogre-like creatures with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from their heads.[2] They are humanoid for the most part, but occasionally, they are shown with unnatural features such as odd numbers of eyes or extra fingers and toes.[3] Their skin may be any number of colors, but red and blue are particularly common.[4][5]

Didn’t Stiles say something about having extra fingers in dreams? That’s a weird coincidence. And when Allison was looking stuff up in the beastiary she had a picture opened up of some scary red face. So I thought that was interesting. 
There was also this part: 

The word “oni" is sometimes speculated to be derived from on, the on’yomi reading of a character (隠) meaning to hide or conceal, as oni were originally invisible spirits or gods which caused disasters, disease, and other unpleasant things. These nebulous beings could also take on a variety of forms to deceive (and often devour) humans. Thus the Chinese character 鬼 (Mandarin Pinyin: guǐ; Jyutping: gwai2) meaning “ghost" came to be used for these formless creatures.

Yeah idk about the whole devouring part but there’s definitely been deception going on here, i.e. Stiles being tricked into thinking his dreams are real, and him being deceived into not remembering past actions like writing those atomic numbers on the blackboard. 
I’m too tired to look more into it and I should really start the writing assignment I have that’s due later today (that I’ve been ignoring for a week oops) but yeah someone feel free to add to this or offer their own theories.
