If we learned anything from the Mayans, it’s that if you don’t finish something, it’s not the end of the world.
why do people get so mad about puns? they’re literally the nicest kind of humor. they make nobody feel bad. it’s just clever. sometimes it’s original. learn to like puns. don’t let society run your life
Some may not admit it, but 99% of the anger people experience after a good pun comes from the fact that they didn’t think of it first.
not that i know of. when 3a aired i was still kinda new to the fandom, but i don’t think jennifer was promoted like malia was.
at first glance it looks like malia has no other purpose than being a love interest/pop stiles’ v-card/further a stydia plot. i admit it’s a point, but it’s no valid argument that malia can’t be a villain just bc she’s in the opening credits. if 3a stretched a little longer and jennifer would have become a more important and recurring role like for example derek’s, she could have been in the opening too and then SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKERS. and as you mentioned, stiles and jackson got their seasons as villains too despite being in the opening. why not malia? it’s not about being a villain or not, it’s about being a core character (when will peter get his shot in the credits tbh) and of course it depends on whether the actor is ready to sign that contract.
so, all the opening is telling us that malia’s going to be a recurring important character this season, nothing more.
of course she could be fine and all, but there are a few points that do make her suspicious.
one. —— she was (or still is) able to fully shift into a coyote. in 4x04 we saw that malia is struggling with the fullmoon like any other werewolf, so werecoyotes can’t be that much different. now, tyler hoechlin said something about why derek can’t fully shift into a wolf, but unfortunately i don’t remember his exact words, and before i spread something untrue i’m gonna hold on to canon: ‘According to Gerard Argent, the capacity to shape shift into actual wolves, is a rare ability among Alpha werewolves.’ —- this was proven as true, we saw that both talia and laura hale (alphas) were able to shapeshift into wolves. we were made to believe that malia turned into a coyote out of guilt after killing her mother and sister. bullshit, if you ask me. guilt/traumatic experience doesn’t help you performing a full shift into an animal. if that was true, why didn’t derek turn into a wolf after killing paige? why didn’t derek turn into a wolf after being the one who trusted kate which led to the death of most of his family? why didn’t he turn into a wolf after killing boyd? etc the list is endless. if anyone knows the burden of guilt it’s derek fucking hale. malia turning into a coyote like it’s nothing is an absolute paradox to the show’s canon unless she’s more than what she pretends to be.
two. ‘i turned, caused a car crash, killed my family, ran off into the woods and lived there as a coyote’, that is basically malia’s backstory. weird thing’s just that there are huge claw marks on the car wreck —- claw marks that scott described as a werewolf’s and are definitely too big for a 9 year old girl’s hand, much less the paws of a coyote.
three. ian bohen said talia removed peter’s memory so he wouldn’t corrupt the child. this sounds like talia was also the one who gave malia away. but talia was a wise reasonable alpha, she would never give a born werecoyote to a human family. of course there is still the possibility that malia was abandoned and the tate family found her, but i doubt talia would do that to her own niece. plus, why did malia shift for the first time that night? i don’t think the fullmoon only affects weres when they have reached a certain age.
four. i said it before and i’ll say it again. malia was, canonically, never told about the katana. she couldn’t have known that they needed it to kill the nogitsune. the only thing stiles said when reading the paper (i still don’t know if it was an id or something) was ‘i gotta get this to scott’. sure, malia could’ve taken that as ‘i gotta bring the sword to scott’, but it still seems kinda off to me, esp the way malia left eichen house like she never was a patient in the first place literally 5 mins after nogitsune smirked at her and left her in the basement.
five. we don’t know about her whereabouts except she likes to creep into stiles’ bed at night. we don’t know if she still lives in mr tate’s house. we don’t even know if he’s still alive lmao
six. shelley doesn’t have an answer as to why malia is a coyote when peter is a wolf. she said ‘i think that’s for season 5 [laughs]’ which sounds like this topic won’t even be approached this season.
seven. nogitsune counted three tricksters —- coyote, raven, fox. if this meant nothing, why would they make malia a werecoyote? why not a normal werewolf which would make way more sense considering she’s supposed to be peter’s daughter, who is a hale. and the hale family is known for being blood werewolves. plus, we’re kind of dealing with south american mythology this season —- ‘coyote’ is mexican spanish and the word was derived from cóyotl which literally means trickster. wake up america.
