With so many species infiltrating the halls of Beacon Hills High, it can be hard to keep everything straight. But thanks to Teen Wolf star Shelley Hennig, we now know one very important fact about werecoyotes: when they mate, they mate for life.
“Coyotes are very loyal and faithful animals. When they find their [mate], they mate for life. Malia has found this in Stiles, and she’s not going anywhere; she is 100 percent there for him,” Shelley told TVLine.com. “Whatever he asks her to do, she will do. She trusts him.”
Malia and Stiles will definitely continue their relationship in Season 4 — and it sounds like this werecoyote will be wearing the pants in this relationship. Somehow, we think Stiles is OK with this.
“Malia’s very aggressive. She’ll physically grab him, and that means she loves him, as opposed to brushing his face with her hands. She’s more likely to punch him; that’s her way of showing love,” Shelley said. “It’s like Malia’s the big spoon, and Stiles is the little spoon. Dylan [O'Brien] has been so gracious as an actor to accept that and not be like, ‘No, I’m a man.’ He’s so fun to work with because he’s willing to shrink around her.”
Spooning aside, Malia is a little rough around the edges, and that will cause a bit of friction within the pack, especially with Malia’s sparring partner, Kira.
“Sometimes it comes off a little abrasive, but Malia was a wild animal for 10 years, and the pack knows that,” Shelley said. “Her friends are also getting used to her personality, and Stiles is really there for her to remind the pack she’s trying. She’s loyal, but the way she says things isn’t exactly how she means them.”
