Beware of the Coyote?
I think that we can all agree that Teen Wolf is full of gaping plot-holes and irritating continuity errors, right? However, a lot of hints are placed within the show that actually end up connecting to something later in the show’s plot.
Like when the name “Iago” (the antagonist from Shakespeare’s “Othello” that Peter Hale was loosely based on) was written on a teacher’s chalkboard in the same episode that Peter was revealed to be the alpha werewolf.
Or when Jennifer had the students read “Heart of Darkness”, and then Scott, Stiles, and Allison partook in a sacrifice that left darkness around their hearts.
Or when Stiles revealed in s2 that the kanima was a werejaguar from South America, and now Kate (werejaguar hybrid-thingy) and hunters from South America have been introduced into the show.
Well, Malia is a werecoyote and we’re supposed to trust her based upon the fact that she appears to be “good”. However, hints in the show may have actually been warnings to not trust Malia so quickly.
In the beginning of 3b when Stiles and Scott are searching for Malia, Stiles says:
“I hate coyotes so much. They always sound like they’re mauling some tiny, helpless animal.”
Stiles’ initial opinion of coyotes is that he hates them… but then he ends up making out with Malia in that disastrous scene in 3x20.
I know, Jeff does stupid things, but that scene was just so sketchy. Maybe too sketchy. It was entirely out of place and the fact that Jeff has only hinted at Stiles/Malia being an interesting relationship, but nothing confirming that it’ll be entirely romantic is a red flag.
This isn’t the first time Jeff has purposely had an “intimate
dub/non-conscene” placed into an episode. Remember back to 3x06 when Scott was trying to commit suicide and they decided to splice in that horrendous scene between Derek and Jennifer? Yeah…this is nothing new.
That horrible scene in 3x20 actually connects with what I think was the biggest hint of all.
After kidnapping Lydia, the Nogitsune says:
"Trickster stories are all about food, Lydia. The coyote, the raven, the fox, they’re all hungry. I’m the same. I just crave something a little different. I need what you feel, and I’m insatiable.”
This is a big hint because there really wasn’t a reason to bring up other tricksters: The coyote (Malia), the raven, the fox (nogitsune)…
Having the nogitsune say what it did about the tricksters left us suspicious of Malia since she’s a werecoyote.
The nogitsune explained that all the tricksters are hungry, but that the nogitsune itself craved what people felt. (pain and strife, obviously).
So what might the coyote trickster hunger for?
Well, according to what I was able to dig up online (which I can’t say is entirely accurate), tricksters have five main characteristics:
- Ability to shapeshift
- Taking on the role as a “creator”
- A dichotomy of good and evil
- Being sexually active
- Being a prankster
It is said that a trickster’s greed is often in pursuit of sex. It’s also said that tricksters are among the most sexually active figures in ancient religions.
As said by the nogitsune itself, it hungered for what people felt (pain & strife), and not sex. But perhaps the coyote hungers for sex.
NOTE how the whole Stiles/Malia “hook-up” scene was out of place. It didn’t fit in with the episode, and it left the audience under the impression that they had sex.
Malia was also the one who initiated the kissing, and was the one who took things to an even higher level when she stopped, said she wanted to try something, and then took off her shirt.
ALSO NOTE that Jeff has recently hinted at other future relationships being all physical.
[…] whereas for other romances on the show may be all physical at first, but the difficult thing for them is actually being with each other and not being physical.” [x]
Could Malia be the coyote trickster?
If she is the coyote trickster, and if she is hungering for sex, she has definitely set her sights on the perfect target.
Stiles is a virgin, and as we’ve seen numerous times throughout past episodes, he’s extremely eager and willingly to have sex. Remember: "Stiles wants to have a good time. Many, many times."
It certainly doesn’t take much convincing to get Stiles all hot and bothered and down with having sex.
So, does this mean that Stiles is just Malia’s prey? Perhaps Stiles is just the source Malia needs to fulfill her hunger.
Love this theory!
Also, what I found to be interesting in 3x20, before that hellish scene, Malia was all pissed at Stiles. She hit him and was willing to be subdued just to get that satisfaction. And then 10 seconds later, she’s all over him. Which definitely felt weird and not right (kind of like that entire episode HA!). So what was that all about? Acting like she hates him one minute and then making out with him the next? All part of her ploy as the trickster coyote?
- A dichotomy of good and evil
The show made an effort of making her seem “good”, helping Stiles throughout 3x20, hanging out with Scott and Stiles in the finale, that whole look between her and Lydia. But that could just be their way of covering for the fact that she is “evil” or the trickster coyote!
I now accept this theory as canon.
And let’s not forget who her father is
He never thought Derek would be so gentle.
Derek has always been rough edges, or at least it seemed— broken, jagged pieces of glass too dangerous to get near. But glass is ultimately the perfect metaphor, because Derek is fragile. He falls asleep to Stiles’ voice chatting over the phone, brings Stiles coffee because he knows he’s studying, and tears up when they watch sad movies. He always asks if Stiles is okay with what he’s doing when they have sex, and holds him close afterwards, carding his fingers through his hair with a look on his face that scares Stiles— frightens him because no one has ever looked at him like that and he wonders if that’s the same look on his face when he gazes at Derek. He wonders if he’s that fragile, too. He wonders if he’s capable of breaking Derek.
Sometimes Derek tries to hide it, like the sharp, glistening edges of glass ward away touch. He masks fear under dry humor and sadness under anger. He won’t admit that Scott’s brotherly friendship with him means the world to him, that the Sheriff’s acceptance of his character is so important, or that he’s making tentative steps towards friendship with the Argents. He won’t say that he misses his family, or that he’s still guilty about Boyd and Erica. He won’t tell Stiles he’s terrified of screwing things up with their relationship, but Stiles can see it reflected back in those small, simple, affectionate actions that Derek doesn’t think twice about performing. He can see the cracks that haven’t broken away yet, and wonders about them— wonders if there’s a way to fix it all.
All he knows is that he’d suffer every cut, every splinter digging into his skin, every painstaking hour piecing things back together to make it happen.

Stiles gets kidnapped and the captor thinks this is all some kind of game. He wants to see how much of a man Shaun can be. Wants to know how fr the brotherly bond stretches. He puts Shaun through numerous tests in hopes that he won’t come out of them alive, but what he doesn’t know is…Shaun would die for Stiles and take anyone who hurts his brother down with him.
