|“|| "We should have called Stiles."|
"We promised we wouldn't [...] We almost lost him last time."
"Yeah, and now I'm gonna lose you too!"
"You... you're... gonna lose...?"
"Yeah, me-- all of us. You know what I mean."
"Yeah, I think so..."
"And, you know, Stiles wouldn't be okay with this-- if he knew all the things we were trying to do without him. He'd... He'd kill us!"
"I think he'd be okay."
Scott and Malia first met in early Season 3B, when Scott and Stiles helped save Malia from being killed by her father in coyote form and helped her change back into her human form for the first time in eight years. After Malia spent some time in Eichen House learning to adapt to human life again, she immediately went to the McCall House after she was discharged to help give him the information she had in order to save Stiles from the Nogitsune.
After the Nogitsune's defeat, Malia officially joined the McCall Pack, and developed close relationships with all of its members, including Scott. She was shown to change for the better due to Scott's influence, leading her to become more empathetic and compassionate and less likely to use violence against others or kill them unless it is absolutely necessary. When it was revealed that Scott and Stiles had hid the fact that Malia's biological father was Peter Hale, Scott and Malia were briefly estranged, but eventually reconciled. She proved her loyalty to Scott during the battle at La Iglesia when she attacked Peter upon learning that he intended to kill Scott and somehow steal his Alpha powers.
Scott and Malia's friendship remained strong through the first half of Season 5, but due to Theo Raeken's manipulations, the stress of their battle with the Dread Doctors, and Malia's growing desire to kill her biological mother Corinne (an act that went against the McCall Pack's unofficial "Code," which discourages killing anyone unless there is no other choice), the Desert Wolf caused them to become estranged once more. However, when Malia ultimately decided to give up her opportunity to kill her mother in favor of saving Alan Deaton from the Beast of Gevaudan, the self-loathing she felt about her intention to kill the Desert Wolf faded and allowed her to once again reconcile with Scott. The two worked together with the rest of the pack through the rest of the season, which included rescuing Lydia from Eichen House, identifying the Beast, and defeating the Desert Wolf without killing her.
In Season 6, Scott and Malia's friendship grows even closer, due in part to the fact that Stiles Stilinski was captured by the Wild Hunt and was erased from their memories, leaving just Scott, Malia, and Lydia as the main part of the pack. Since Scott and Malia were the more experienced shapeshifters, the two worked together to fight against the Ghost Riders while also struggling to regain their memories of Stiles and comforting each other through the pain of having their loved ones captured. In the second half of the season, Scott and Malia's relationship seems to be slowly developing into something more, as the two have bonded over their own respective experiences of being hunted.

In Memory Lost, Scott and Malia are on really good terms in this new season. Their fist interaction in the new season is when the Pack investigates. Scott turns around when he hears the howl of a Werecoyote as he sees Malia being transform into a human. With Malia being all naked in front of him, he acts totally normal with it. The two are later seen when the pack are shooting their yearbook photos. At the end of the episode, Scott and Malia sense something is wrong with Lydia. Lydia says she feels like she was supposed to do something but can't remember what.
In Superposition, Scott and Malia began feeling that something huge is missing in their lives. Scott steps on a tack in his room. He notices a picture is missing from his wall. He finds it on the floor. It’s the image of him, Malia and Lydia at school. Scott calls Lydia and Malia to come out to the woods. He explains how he woke up near the spot where he was bitten and turned into a Werewolf (See Wolf Moon). Lydia says she didn’t know Scott then and Malia points out that she was still stuck in coyote form at the time. Scott remembers looking for a body that night but certain facts, like how he heard about the body, how he got five miles from his house without a car and why Sheriff Stilinski suspected he was out there, don’t make sense. He concludes he wasn’t out there alone. Scott figures out that he had a best friend who was out in the woods with him the night he was searching for the body. Malia says it doesn’t sound crazy because she knows someone chained her up and helped her stay human.
In Sundowning, Scott, Lydia, Natalie and Sheriff Stilinski find Malia in the basement where she used to come to lock herself up on the full moon, where she is in her full-coyote form and is clearly threatened by their presence. The Sheriff urges Scott to “Alpha” growl at her to make her calm down, but Lydia suggests they move away since they’ve invaded her territory where she feels safe. It works, Malia changes back and Mrs. Martin gives her back her clothes. The others are confused as to why Malia is suddenly shifting; they agree that the pressure of school and the recent attempt by her mother to kill her should not be having this effect. They wonder if it is connected to Stiles and the Sheriff explains that it’s a Stilinski family nickname used by his father.
In the hallway, Malia asks him if they are still going to see Elias. When Liam shows up, asking Malia for help, Scott says he should figure the problem with Gwen out with the remaining members of the pack. Malia says that Liam should kidnap Gwen, which Scott insists is not the answer. Scott, Lydia, and Malia head to the Goodwater Assisted Living facility. Malia knocks out the nurse and locks him in a closet. Elias has all his faculties back. He knows Scott is not his son. In fact, he knows Scott’s father and says that he “couldn’t handle his liquor” and cheated on Scott’s mother repeatedly. Malia becomes more agitated and growls as the old man continues. He also knows Lydia and says she looks like her mother. He says Natalie was “pretty once too.” Malia is pissed. Her eyes flash blue and she demands that Elias stop talking. Elias keeps talking claiming Natalie also “liked to talk like she was the smartest person in the room.” Malia loses it, flips her claws and moves toward him. Scott stops her just in time as the Sheriff enters the room.
In Relics, Scott and Malia are both are on mission to protect the students who shared eye contact with the Ghost Riders, causing them to be split up while they deal with their respective tasks. The two are seen again at the end of the episode when Malia brings Chris Argent to the hospital after a fight against the Ghost Riders. Lydia joins Scott and Malia in the hall and updates them on her own investigation, revealing that Claudia never had children so Stiles can’t be her son. Both Scott and Malia seem ready to give up on the search for Stiles. Lydia says they have to keep trying. Malia says they should focus on defeating the Ghost Riders instead. Scott and Malia seems to be on one line.
In Radio Silence, Scott and Malia are seen much together this episode. At Beacon Hills High School, Scott exits a classroom looking for the sound. Malia joins him the hall. She heard it to. They go in search of the source and find Lydia standing in front of the blue Jeep. The sound is coming from the police band radio inside. Scott breaks the lock on the door and they get in. The sound in the Jeep stops. Scott suddenly catches a scent of himself, Lydia and Malia inside the vehicle but he and Malia both say they’ve never been inside the Jeep. Lydia says they have but they don’t remember. Malia seems frustrated that she’s back to her “Stiles” theory again. Scott points out that Jordan Parrish checked the VIN and found it was not registered to anyone. Lydia says it didn’t just park itself outside the school. Malia says again that Stiles is not real but Lydia searches the glove compartment and comes up with a registration from 1996. It lacks a name but has an address: 129 Woodbine Lane. Lydia says she knows the house.
When Peter is back on earth again, Scott, Malia and Lydia hear his cry. Lydia urges them to go find out who made the sound. Scott and Malia can smell Peter. They say it smells like he’s burning. They find him and Malia says she knows his scent. She looks closely at his face and realizes it’s her father. Scott still doesn’t know him at first but then the memories of Peter come flooding back. They both wonder how they could have forgotten him. They realize he is holding something in his charred hand. They both reach down and use their ability to take away his pain. Once they’ve eased him a bit, his hand opens and they find Stiles’ keys.
In Ghosted, Scott and Malia are first seen together at Malia's car as the pair arrive together with Lydia the ghost town, Canaan. Scott is asleep in the back seat of a car. Malia taps him awake and informs him that they’ve arrived in Canaan. As they wander through a residential street, Scott announces that he can’t hear a single heartbeat and Malia says there are no scents either. As Scott wonders aloud why Stiles would send them to this town, a street light buzzes and flickers to life just above them. Discovering the town, Scott and Malia are the only ones who experience hallucinations. Malia's involved seeing her adoptive mother and sister dead and bloodied on the ground in front of her; after a moment, Theo appears and shoots her so she can be dead with them. Scott's hallucination involved him seeing his mother with a large bloodied hole in her skull.
They wander further down the street until they see curtains move in a window of one of the houses. They enter and call out. At first, it appears no one is there, but then they spot Lenore (McNally Sagal) who seems thrilled to have visitors and greets them warmly. She says “Caleb” will be so happy to see them because it’s been a long time since he’s had anyone to play with. She invites them in and offers them lemonade. As they follow her through the house, Lydia realizes that she is the same woman, the blond, she saw earlier in the mirror. Lydia says they didn’t mean to upset Lenore and the trio get up and head toward the door. Malia staggers a bit, and Scott seems to have trouble rising from his chair. As they make toward the door, it slams shut. Scott tries to open it, but it won’t budge. Malia points out that he’s a werewolf and should be able to get through the door. She tries to punch the window, but it also doesn’t break or budge.
Lydia turns to Lenore and asks her to please unlock the door. She replies that now that they’re here, they need to stay because Caleb likes them. Caleb appears at the entrance to a hallway and says, in a strange, doubled voice, for Scott and Malia to come with him. Lenore has moved on to cleaning up the glasses in the dining room and Lydia urges her friends to follow the boy. They find Caleb in a darkened family room. There is a couple inches of dirty water on the floor, a TV showing static and an old video cassette recorder. Scott and Malia step tentatively into the room with the boy. Scott notices a window and tries to open it but it won’t budge. Scott asks the boy if he can help them get out but he says they have to stay because “mommy said so.” Then, again in that doubled voice, he says, “This is home,” and the door slams shut. Caleb picks up a wet video cassette and inserts it into the machine. Video of Caleb blowing bubbles appears. The date shows August 12, 1985. Malia points this out and asks the boy what year he was born. He turns to them, now dripping wet, and says 1976. Scott asks, “and when did you die?”.
Still trapped with Caleb, Malia wonders aloud if she’s having another hallucination because water is now pouring down the walls and the stairs. Scott says if she is, she’s having the same one. Malia goes to attack Caleb but is stricken, suddenly choking. Water pours from her mouth. Malia continues to choke on the gouts of water that are pouring from her mouth. Scott urges her to breathe. He shouts for Lydia and makes a run for the door but water beings to pour from his mouth too. He asks Caleb what he’s doing to them and the boy responds that they’re drowning just like he did and now they can all be friends forever. Scott and Malia can suddenly breathe again. Caleb says, “Mommy says you can go now.” He returns to watching the old video of himself when he was alive.
The door opens and they quickly make their way outside and back to Lydia. In the car on the way back to Beacon Hills, Scott wonders aloud if Stiles sent them to Canaan to warn them of what could happen with the Ghost Riders. Malia says they need to get them to leave now but Lydia says they can’t let them leave yet. Lydia says she saw in Lenore’s memory what happens to the people they’ve taken once the Wild Hunt moves on to a new place. She says it’s worse than death, that their souls are hollowed out and she thinks they became Ghost Riders and then were gone. Scott returns home and is infuriated to see Theo. He says it’s taking all his strength not to tear Theo in half. Malia enters and, eyes blazing, growls at Theo.
In Memory Found,
In Said the Spider to the Fly, Malia was excitedly preparing to leave for her flight to Paris when Scott and Lydia appeared in her doorway, blocking her from leaving her bedroom at the Tate Ranch. Upon realizing that they were trying to recruit her in their investigation of the mysterious new spider-related creature in Beacon Hills, Malia immediately yelped "No! No, no, no, no, no!" at the sight of the two of them. She continued on by arguing that they were just dealing with rats, wolves, and "maybe a little bug problem," but Scott and Lydia simply stared at her silently for a moment before Lydia retorted that they needed her.
Malia turned around and walked toward her window, fully intending to climb out the window to get away from them if it came to it as Scott called out her name to stop her. After Malia argued that Liam and Mason could handle it without her, Scott finally spoke up and pointed out that he knew they couldn't make her stay, and that he had no desire to try, before adding that they were hoping that she would still want to do so in order to help them. Malia, clearly affected by this argument, lied and stated that she didn't, leading Scott, who was slightly disappointed, to step out of Malia's way.
To their surprise, Malia, desperate to get out of this situation, gently shoved Lydia aside and walked out the door, causing Scott and Lydia to sigh in disappointment and give each other a look. However, a moment later, Scott quickly had to use his supernatural agility to catch Malia's bag as she forcefully threw it at him as she scowled and walked in the door, visibly annoyed by the fact that she could not in good conscience leave Beacon Hills when they needed her help. She then looked Scott in the eyes and asked him what it was that they were supposed to do, to which Scott replied, "Find a Hellhound."
A short time later, Scott, Malia, and Lydia began driving to the high school in Stiles' Jeep, where they began to discuss what Lydia learned in the premonition; namely, that they had opened a door to another world, and that something had come out with them, which was why they needed to find Halwyn, a Hellhound who had just escaped Eichen House, to stop it. When Malia argued that they could "put it back," as it was something that had done with other villains before, Scott and Lydia gave each other a look, which told Malia that they knew something that they hadn't yet revealed to her.
Scott explained that putting it back may not be as simple as they hoped, and Lydia added that, though they saved Stiles and brought back all the rest of the Wild Hunt captives, it was not supposed to have happened that way. Lydia went on to point out that there is always a price to pay for those kind of actions, a statement with which Scott agreed, reminding Malia that they learned this lesson from the surrogate sacrifice ritual, which reawakened the Nemeton. Malia asked them if the price they paid to save Stiles and the rest of the town would be a big one, and both Scott and Lydia agreed that it likely would be.
Upon arriving at the high school, the three were about to run into the school when Scott stated that they needed to move quickly. When Malia asked if they even knew what creature they had let out, Scott insisted that Halwyn might be the only being who does. Suddenly, Scott and Malia heard a roar from the woods, causing the three to run toward the preserve to investigate. By the time they had tracked the source of the roar, they found that Halwyn had been shot in the head and seemingly killed by an unnamed Hunter. The three mused upon the fact that they believed that Hellhounds could not be killed until Scott found a bullet casing with the Argent Family fleur-de-lis stamped on it. They determined that Lydia's premonition must have been true, and when Scott asked if she heard people being killed, Lydia corrected him and stated that people who had never raised their hand against another innocent person were killing each other.
Back at the McCall House, Malia and Scott were sitting next to each other on Scott's bed while Lydia sat on Scott's left as they debated what to do next. Lydia reminded Scott and Malia that they almost lost Stiles the last time something like this had happened, but Malia argued that if this situation truly was something big and they didn't call him, he would kill them, a sentiment that Scott agreed with completely. Malia suggested that they should go back to the woods to try to find the killer themselves, but when Lydia asked Scott what he thought, Scott backtracked on his earlier statement and pointed out that the the two of them didn't hear how excited Stiles sounded to be in his internship when he left his goodbye voicemail on Scott's phone.
Malia asked Scott to play the voicemail, which Scott did, allowing the three to hear Stiles informing them that he had made it to Quantico, Virginia, to do his internship with the FBI, and while he had told Lydia that he missed her and couldn't wait to get home, he believed that he and the three of them needed to leave Beacon Hills to pursue their post-high-school dreams, and that Scott specifically needed to get into the Jeep and drive to UC-Davis.
In Raw Talent, after they had found Halwyn's dead body, Scott began running through the woods, where he experienced flashbacks to when he was being hunted by Chris Argent and several other Hunters during his first full moon as a Werewolf (see Wolf Moon), along with flashbacks of being hunted by Gerard Argent in later months. Malia, along with Lydia, began chasing after him until he finally stopped running, allowing them to catch up with him. When Malia reminded him that they could still catch "him," Scott was finally brought out of his flashbacks, and, confused by her statement, asked her who she was talking about. Malia frowned in concern and told him she meant the killer before asking him who he was thinking about.
Concerned by his flashbacks but not wanting to worry her and Lydia, Scott instead held up the bullet casing they found with the fleur-de-lis stamped on it and stated that he was thinking about getting the bullet to Argent. When Malia asked, "Even if he was the one who fired it?" as she and Lydia walked closer to him, Scott replied, "Especially if he's the one" before turning to continue walking through the woods. However, Scott froze when he suddenly heard something and asked Malia if she heard it too, leading the two to agree that they were hearing a lot of heartbeats approaching them. Still thinking about his flashbacks, Scott believed they were being pursued by Hunters and insisted that they run, with Scott and Malia urging Lydia to get ahead of them so they could better protect her from harm.
Scott began running at top speed, causing Malia and Lydia to struggle to keep up with them as they called after him to slow down. As he ran, he began seeing shadowy figures with laser-sighted rifles around him and skidded to a halt as dozens of laser sights aimed at his chest and torso. Believing himself to be cornered and wanting to protect Malia and Lydia, Scott began growling as he shifted into his Werewolf form, roaring before he tackled the first person that he saw. Unfortunately, Scott didn't realize that he was tackling Sheriff Stilinski, who had presumably received reports about gunshots in the woods and had come with Jordan Parrish and numerous other deputies to check it out.
It wasn't until the Sheriff called out Scott's name several times that Scott realized what he was doing, and he became ashamed and embarrassed when he realized that he had both misread the situation and lost control, especially after he noticed that the Sheriff had aimed his gun at Scott's torso in case he needed to shoot him. Malia and Lydia then appeared as well, looking at Scott with concern as he shifted back into human form. After discussing the dead Halwyn with the Sheriff and Parrish, the three drive back to the McCall House, where they discuss the fact that none of them said anything to the Sheriff about the Argent Family's symbol on the bullet casing found next to Halwyn's body and agree to continue to stay quiet about it until they've spoken to Argent themselves.
The next day, Scott and Malia went to the Argent Bunker, where Argent is nowhere to be found. While Scott emptied out a container of bullets and tried to find one with the fleur-de-lis stamp, Malia began pacing around, pointing out that he had been ignoring their calls and texts and was neither there nor at his apartment. Just then, Scott found Argent's laptop and decided they should try to check his calendar by cracking his password, which visibly impressed Malia, who remarked that she didn't know Scott had it in him to be so devious. After several password guesses failed to unlock the laptop, Malia, wanting to take advantage of the opportunity to speak with Scott alone, exposited that "Hunter" couldn't possibly be Argent's password, because not only is he no longer truly a Hunter, but that, as far as they could tell, there were no longer any Werewolf Hunters in Beacon Hills.
However, when she asked him why someone would mistake Sheriff's deputies for Hunters, Scott, who was only half paying attention, asked her what she was talking about, causing Malia to reply "Nothing" and change the subject. After a moment, Scott broke the padlock on a nearby crate and opened it to find numerous guns packed up inside, each with tags indicating the make, model, and price of the weapon, which led him to realize that Argent hadn't actually left town-- he had instead gone back into his former business as a federally-licensed firearms dealer. When Scott opened another case and found a compound bow very similar to the one Allison once used, Scott realized that Argent was using his daughter's name as his password, just as Scott did years ago, and figured out where Argent was making an arms deal.
Scott and Malia then tracked Argent down to a market in downtown Los Angeles, where, believing Argent to be in danger as a result of the buyers, who were aiming loaded rifles at him, the two incapacitated a nearby man in military fatigues, only for Argent to exasperatedly inform them that he was his guy on the inside. Though Argent was able to use a remote to shut down all of the lights in the market, the three were still forced to take cover when the new Hunter opened fire on them. When Argent was unable to convince Malia to save his contact himself, Scott gave her a look, leading Malia to reluctantly grab him by the arm and drag him to safety while Argent drew their fire. Scott and Malia then worked together to neutralize all of the amateur Hunters aside from the leader, who, when Argent held a gun to the back of his head, dropped a grenade onto the ground, leaving the three no choice but to jump out of the way, allowing him to escape.
Afterward, Scott and Malia regrouped with Argent, who insisted that he wasn't ignoring their calls; he instead insisted that his business has been booming, and he wants to know what is behind the sharp jump in sales. Scott asked him if he had any unusual sales recently, Malia got to the point by asking him if he had sold ammunition with a fleur-de-lis on it, though Argent assured them he hadn't stamped any bullets since Allison died. When Argent asked if they had a casing he could see, Scott found his pockets were empty and sighed when he realized it must have fallen out in the fight. Despite this, Argent informed them that if they could find the "slug," then they would be able to find their killer.
Upon returning to Beacon Hills, Scott and Malia began running through the woods in order to find the site of Halwyn's murder. After briefly looking around, Malia, unable to resist, remarked that she wasn't good at subtlety before asking him what had happened the previous night when he believed the Sheriff's deputies were Hunters. Scott assured her that he understood her concern and agreed that he freaked out before assuming that his doing so freaked her out as well. Malia took offense at the implication that she had freaked out, and when Scott asked her if she really wasn't freaked out about his behavior, Malia exasperatedly replied that she was asking because she was worried about him. Scott seemed stunned by this admission and was silent for a moment before assuring her that he was fine and thanking her for her concern.
After an awkward moment of silence, Malia reminded him that she was once hunted by her adoptive father, which caused Scott to retort that he was once hunted by his then-girlfriend's father before the two laughed and smiled together. However, when Scott asked her if that fear ever went away, Malia's smile faded, and she remained silent, indicating that it never did. Just then, Malia asked Scott what he would say if she told him that she saw a red laser sight, and Scott was inclined to think she was imagining it until he turned around and saw it for himself. Before the two could prepare for a fight, Argent's voice was heard reassuring them that it was just him. Malia exasperatedly asked him if he had to point his rifle at them, but Argent insisted it was necessary to determine the trajectory. Unbeknownst to Malia, Scott was looking at her from her side and smiled at the sight, implying his feelings for Malia were changing.
When Argent once again raised his rifle toward them, both Scott and Malia instinctively ducked until he insisted that the safety was still on. Upon finding where the bullet that killed Halwyn was shot, Argent found the slug buried in a nearby tree and asked Scott to glow his eyes to prove that the bullet was silver, as it has a higher heat signature that allows it to be seen with infrared goggles and, by extension, an Alpha's eyes. While the three walked back through the woods, Malia stole glances at Scott from beside him and sighed loudly before asking why the metal of the bullet mattered, since they all do the same thing in the end. This led Scott to remind Malia about the legend that silver can kill a Werewolf, which, according to Argent, a real Hunter would know was false. This caused Argent, Scott, and Malia to realize that they were dealing with a new Hunter who was still learning the trade, much to all of their alarm.
Afterward, Scott and Malia met up with Lydia at the McCall House, where Lydia informed them of the fact that Conrad Fenris had killed all of the supernatural creatures in the closed unit and would have killed Parrish had Lydia not neutralized him with her Banshee scream. During their discussion of the day's events, they realized that the new creature in Beacon Hills was amplifying everyone's fear, causing the human population to turn against the supernatural population and causing the new Hunter to join the ranks.
In After Images,
In Pressure Test,
- Malia is very loyal to Scott, to the point where she was even willing to battle her own biological father Peter Hale to save him. Conversely, Scott is also very loyal to Malia, and learned how to control his new Alpha powers solely so he could save her from being harmed by her adoptive father, Henry Tate, who believed her to be just a regular coyote who had killed his wife and daughter.
- Malia is the first Werecoyote to join Scott's pack.
- Malia's animalistic view on life changed due to Scott's influence, making her less willing to kill unless it is absolutely necessary. The fandom often refers to this change in behavior regarding the members of the McCall Pack as "the Scott McCall Effect."
- Malia and Scott have saved each other many times.
- Malia saved Scott when he was attacked at the hospital by the Dread Doctors in Required Reading and when he was attacked by the Beast of Gevaudan in Maid of Gévaudan.
- Scott saved Malia from being trapped in her coyote form for the rest of her life in More Bad Than Good, prevented her from dying from the canine distemper virus in Weaponized, and helped her steal the Desert Wolf's powers in Apotheosis.
- After the Desert Wolf threaten to kill Malia on a full moon, Scott had Malia stay at his house for her own protection, due to the fact that the house has Mountain Ash built into its foundation. This demonstrates how much Scott and the rest of the pack cares for Malia, as they would rather ensure her safety even despite the other important threat happening at the same time.
- Scott worked with Deucalion to find a way to help Malia stop her mother without killing her, ultimately deciding to have Malia use Belasko's talons to take the rest of the Desert Wolf's powers.
- This plan was set in motion in Lie Ability when Deucalion began to trick the Chimera Pack in order to prevent them from using Belasko's talons to take the Beast's powers, as he lied by insisting that anyone who wore them, aside from Belasko himself, would die due to the fact that the Dread Doctors created them for a specific person.
- In Season 5B, they teamed up to fight against the Dread Doctors, with help from Chris Argent.
- Scott and Malia share many moments together in Season 6. With Stiles absent through most of the first half of the season, it seems as though Scott and Malia are growing closer.
- Fans started to ship this pair after Season 5's Damnatio Memoriae.
- Scott and Malia's actors, Tyler Posey and Shelley Hennig, are very close friends in real life as well.
- They also like the idea of Scott and Malia being together the last season. Shelley thinks Scott can tame her, and she also thinks they make a great pair.
