Meredith Walker is a Banshee and the primary antagonist, The Benefactor, in Season 4 of Teen Wolf.


Meredith Walker is said to be an orphan, according to Malia Tate, her entire family is dead.

Lydia Martin describes her as a "fragile girl who didn't understand the things she heard." Those Banshee abilities led to her internment in Eichen House, a mental health facility.

Prior to being committed, she was in a chemistry class and the voices in her head were screaming so loudly that she couldn’t stand it. She slammed her hands down on her desk and screamed. Her voice caused all the windows to explode and injured her classmates. It was explained as a chemical explosion, but everyone knew it was Meredith. (The Sword and the Spirit)

During her commitment, Meredith came to the attention of some parapsychologists working for Lorraine Martin, Lydia's grandmother. They brought her to a special room in the Martin's lake house to test her precognitive abilities. The tests almost killed her. Meredith was hospitalized for over a year after that and never really recovered. Lydia says the tests drove her insane.

While she was unconscious, Meredith was in the same room as a badly burned and comatose Peter Hale. She was able to pick up his thoughts through some unexplained means. Peter was ranting about wanting to kill all the supernaturals in Beacon Hills so he could start over with stronger stock.

It was Peter's "ravings of a lunatic" that planted the idea and the means for creating The Dead Pool and setting "The Benefactor" plan in motion.

She knew Brunski was a serial killer. She used him. Meredith had him use Lorraine's computer and code for the Dead Pool. He put it online, took the money from the Hale Vault and made the payments.
