So do you still get the $4 million for killing Malia even though her name is actually Malia Tate?
Her name is Malia Hale. She’s a Hale, that’s why it says Malia Hale on the list. Malia just doesn’t know that, that’s her actually name because she doesn’t know that Peter Hale is her father OR that Derek Hale is her cousin. The Benefactor is totally right with that.
Only if you arbitrarily assume all children take their biological father’s surname. Which they don’t.
Peter didn’t know himself that he was a father. He didn’t know he has a daughter, he didn’t know anything about her. Talia made sure of that that no one knows about it, So obviously she couldn’t have the surname of her biological father. But it’s simply is like that. She was born as a Hale she just was raised (kind of, technically she didn’t even that very much) in the Tate family. And it just has to be like that on the list since he can’t just write Tate on it when that isn’t her real name.
Dude. I don’t know how many ways I can say biological father does not equal surname. How old fashioned are you? Did you time travel here?
I’m guessing the real reason it’s ‘Hale’ is either a) production error or b) so that Peter can be outed as Malia’s father.
