Who could have made it out of the fire?

We’ve gathered that there’s an inconsistency in the reported number of victims of the Hale House Fire; the Fire Report says there were 8 victims while Derek said there were 10 who died, leaving 2 people unaccounted for. You can go back and read that post here. So here are our theories to who could have made it out of the fire:

Talia Hale:

After Alicia Cappola was cast as Tatia Hale, it was revealed that she’d be seen in more than one episode. We found that odd seeing as she’s supposedly dead, unless the show decides to use flashbacks more often (which I don’t see why). If Tatia did survive and left Beacon Hills for whatever reason, it could explain why Deaton made a promise to look after Derek (in 2×10 ‘Fury) – it was already said that looking after the Hale family was a big part of Deaton’s life, so why would making a promise to watch out for Derek need to be added. Obviously Tatia had no knowledge of the fire beforehand, which could suggest she sought out Deaton after the fire and asked him to watch out for Derek and Laura. Maybe Talia thought whoever set the fire were after her and by leaving she was saving them?

The fact that the Alpha power had been transferred to Laura after the fire, suggesting that Talia perished in the fire, leads to the theory that there are ways to transfer the Alpha power without the previous Alpha dying…

If Tatia did survive the fire, she has a lot of explaining to do about her absence…

One of Derek’s siblings/cousins

A young Hale may have managed to escape, tiny enough to squeeze through the bars but got lost. They could have lost their memory and got adopted.. Oooh, they could have literally been raised by wolves – although there haven’t been wolves in California in like 60 years, but still. Imagine if it’s Derek’s cousin and their dad is Peter. It would show a whole new side to him…

In the screenshot above, we see a man, a boy, and a girl beside him. How exactly did Peter escape? The Hale House is miles away in the middle of the Preserve yet Peter somehow managed to escape – unless he went into the fire to save his family members…

It leaves the question that if there are two Hale survivors, why did they not come forward; did they lose their memory, are they stuck in wolf form, or did they believe it to be too dangerous to return? Or maybe they were taken against their will to a government facility – which would explain the appearance of the FBI in Beacon Hills – they could have heard about the “animal attacks” and returned for more test subjects. Talia could have relinquished her Alpha powers to convince Laura and Derek she had died to keep them safe and not try and find her!

If this question ever is answered and Derek has more living family members, I really hope they’re nice – Derek needs something good to happen to him for a change!
