On the last episode I thought this scene where Ted and Ashley were talking he was acting really shady. Where he said it’s about a clean slate, which was the same A text that the girls received. Also, his phone rang and he ignored it and he said it can keep ringing, and then I got to thinking that maybe there was more clues, so I went searching around for the phone to see if it was used by A, and it was! The first pic is of A using the phone in A DAngerous GAme and  that is the same as the one that Ted has in the bottom pic! 

So, let that sink in…

The Beginning, The Middle, And The End of Charles DiLaurentis

Cece Drake, Jason DiLaurentis, Bethany Young, Charles DiLaurentis, Marion Cavanaugh, Kenneth DiLaurentis, Jessica Dilaurentis, Alison DiLaurentis, Toby Cavanaugh.

In this post I will cover the beginnings of A, the middle, and the end. The people I listed above are all related in some way or another so, I will start there. This is more for the story line than proof, if you want physical facts that Cece is A I suggest you  go to my other tumblr post here: http://theplltheorist.tumblr.com/post/109588344464/cece-drake-is-big-a-theory

The Beginning

Kenneth DiLaurentis is the father of Cece Drake/Charles DiLaurentis (is transgender) and the (possible) father of twins Bethany Young and Toby Cavanaugh, their mother is Marion Cavanaugh. (all three)

Jessica Dilaurentis is the mother of Jason DiLaurentis (whose father is Peter Hastings)  and Alison DiLaurentis (whose father is Kenneth)

Here we go, guys… It all leads back to Radley, I never understood why until now. In the beginning, there were two affairs, Jessica had an affair with Peter Hastings which produced Jason Dilaurentis, and Kenneth Dilaurentis had an affair with Marion Cavanaugh, since their ages are similar Cece (Charles) and Jason would be the same age. Approximately a year and a half or so after, Marion became pregnant with Toby and Bethany either by Daniel Cavanaugh or Kenneth Dilaurentis, either way making Toby, Cece (Charles), and Bethany half-siblings by their mother Marion. This would also make Jason and Cece (Charles) not related in any way by blood (I know y’all were worried about incest, so… That solves that problem!) 

Now, the haunted house that the girls pass by in “The First Secret” was the original home to Charles (Cece), Bethany, and Toby and this is where our story begins… I believe since Jessica DiLaurentis was pregnant with Peter Hasting’s child, Kenneth may have just began seeing her, after a while Kenneth probably divorced Marion leaving him with partial custody of Charles. According to the timeline, Jessica probably told Ken that Jason was his so that he would leave Marion. It worked, but only after Marion became pregnant with Bethany and Toby (Possibly by Kenneth). So, since knowing that Marion was pregnant, he was probably seeing Marion and Charles as often as he could and then… The twins were born.

I’m going back to the twin story that Alison told, it was right and also wrong at the same time… Here’s how. The two blonde girls in the story were Bethany and Cece (Charles), I’m guessing Cece told Alison the story because she depicted herself as a girl playing with dolls as a child. Now, which one stabbed the other? Bethany stabbed Cece (Charles) because he was always stealing her dolls and playing with them because he wanted to be a girl and do girl things as Bethany did. After Bethany hurt Charles she was sent to Radley, and that’s where she stayed, It made sense that Toby wouldn’t have remembered a twin because he was probably very young when it all happened.

So, in the video (5x25) Mr. DiLaurentis most likely had a visiting day with the children and Jessica saying “You wanna say goodnight to your sister? Give her a little kiss!” She was only saying it to one of the little boys, which was  Charles. The baby? Bethany. The other boy could’ve been Jason because of the time period and the fact Mr. Hastings said he used to take the girls there, he could’ve taken Jason and Jessica there as well. Or even possibly Andrew, I have a feeling the two know each other and have a history even though their ages would be screwed up.

Here’s where Radley comes into play, Bethany was in Radley for an extended period of time (from child to death), she had no idea about Kenneth and Jessica being married, no idea about Charles becoming Cece… None of it. Marion was a nurse at Radley, most likely to keep an eye on Bethany as she grew and eventually would become a patient herself. 

Here’s where it all began. Mr. Dilaurentis most likely abused Charles as a child either mentally or physically, or both because he desired to be a girl, even as a child. It wouldn’t surprise me whatsoever if Charles was put up for adoption, and sometime later would become Cece Drake, returning to Rosewood. 

No one knew her because Charles Dilaurentis was gone and now she identified herself as Cece Drake, she befriended Alison (who is her younger half-sister) and treated her like the sister she wish she had from childhood. Now, here’s where it gets interesting, in Season 4 episode 10, Spencer and Hanna go to talk to Mrs. DiLaurentis and ask if Dr. Palmer was her psychologist at Radley, Jessica replies “No” and then a flashback begins… She comes into the house flaming made saying she got a call from Radley saying that “Your daughter is here, she wants to stay with us.” 

Initially, I thought Cece went there as Alison to get Ali in trouble… That’s not the case at all. Cece went to Radley to get to Bethany because BETHANY killed Marion for putting her in there the first place, which is why she wwitnessed her mother falling off the roof, she was pushed. She went there to fool Bethany into thinking she was Alison DiLaurentis, telling Bethany that her father (Kenneth Dilaurentis) remarried to Jessica and that she was their daughter. Bethany was furious, she hated “Alison” and Mrs. Dilaurentis for taking her “perfect family” away from her. It explains why her sessions suddenly turned violent, prompting one of her sessions to be recorded like this 

“Bethany’s is angry today, much more than usual. She is verbalizing her anger as expressing it in body language. She is said how angry she is. How she used a happy family and how “she” came along and ruined it all. She can never go home now. She kept repeating, “I thought she really liked me. But everything she ever said to me was a lie”. Bethany kept mentioning “she”. After probing Bethany finally admit that she’s talking about Jessica DiLaurentis. According to Bethany, her father is having an affair with Mrs. DiLaurentis.”

Bethany had no idea Jessica was being nice to her because her father (Kenneth) was her husband. She later says in 5x12 on a recording “Is it like mother like daughter?” She hated Alison and Jessica with a burning passion for taking the family she had. Thus begun her hatred towards Jessica, it explains the violent drawings, depicting Jessica as a monster, stealing her father (Kenneth) away from her.

Up to that point, Jessica was keeping an eye on Bethany, she had cared for her as a child and felt somewhat responsible for her (and why she told her to call her “Aunt Jess” and took her out on outings), just like how she cared for Charles. Jessica cared for Charles and supported him being transgender, hence the two yellow dresses (They could’ve easily been two different sizes) which Kenneth didn’t support, which is why in 5x13 Mrs. Dilaurentis said for Ali to only say she saw one dress or else “Daddy will leave us” because Kenneth wasn’t supportive of Charles’ desire to be female.

Now… We skip to the night it all happened… Labor Day 2009. At this point, Cece had been seeing Bethany and sending her things pretending she was Alison, planning to lure Bethany out of Radley and kill her for what she had done to Marion. Alison was never the target, Bethany was, and Bethany wanted to get revenge on Mrs. Dilaurentis and Alison for taking her family away from her. So, here’s what happened. 

Bethany hit Alison in front of Mrs. DiLaurentis thinking it was Cece (because she had no idea Cece was just playing Alison since the two were supposed to be in similar clothing) and Mrs. Dilaurentis buried Alison for Bethany (because she felt was responsible for her), then Cece killed Bethany (in revenge for killing  their mother, Marion), and Melissa buried her.

Now, getting to Sara Harvey, Mona killed her the day after Alison left because she needed to make everyone believe that Ali was really dead. Because, why would Alison come back? Her duty was done, she got Ali out of town like she wanted. She didn’t know that Bethany was already buried in her place, so she needed another body to dress Alison up as if it were ever found.

The Middle

This is where everything starts for the new Big A, starting with season 3, in episode 3x01 Mona is in Radley, while she’s in there she hallucinates Alison in a red coat reading “Lolita”, we know this isn’t correct because in 4x01 “A is for A-L-I-V-E: Mona says she thought it was Alison, but it turned out to be Cece. 

Here’s the thing, Alison doesn’t seem like the book reading type, she never has, every book reference Ezra used, Alison had no idea who they were. I suspect Alison told Cece that she was getting harrassed and Cece came up with Alison’s “Vivian Darkbloom” (anagram for Vladimir Nabokov)and has created every single alias Alison has ever had. She created her passports, her fake ID’s, etc. and the Holly Varjak identity as well, which explains why Alison had no idea who Varjak was and why Cece knew about Vivian Darkbloom.

Now, Marlene has said that in 4x12 “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” she gave us a huge hint by calling the mime “The Great Charlemagne” which if you look at it, Charlemagne is another name for Charles. Since 3x01 to this episode, A took the form of a woman in a red coat wearing an Alison mask, forcing Mona do things for her, such as digging up Bethany’s body etc. (for more proof go to my other cece theory this one is more for story.)

It’s also worth taking into consideration Cece is the only one on the entire show that chose a job surrounded by mannequins, dressing people up as dolls is her literal JOB.

Now… We get to Toby. It bewildered me that A was willing to help him find out what really happened to his mother… Why would A want to help someone that was playing for the other side? Then it hit me… Cece and Toby are brother and sister, she knew what really happened to their mother and she wanted to give Toby the tools to figure out she was murdered by his unstable twin, Bethany. This is how she knew so much about Marion, from the songs she used to play as a child to every detail that would convince Toby to investigate. I have a theory as to why the “T” is always capitalized, either it stands for Toby or Transgender.

The thing Cece does is unique… She takes those that were tortured by the liars, Toby, Mona, Lucas, etc. and gives them a chance for revenge and to find out the truth. She gets stabbed in the back by people who should understand her. Which, is why Mona was put on the chopping block after she turned on her and didn’t go after Toby as much.

During the finale (5x25) A wanted them to recreate a prom from seven years ago… Ironically… The year Cece was crowned Prom Queen (and of course she’s in Drama and Debate club..)

The End

Now, the biggest question of all… Why go after the liars? To that, I’d say examine why Mona went after the liars after Alison was out of the picture. The liars were as bad, if not worse than Alison because the stood by while everything happened, they made fun of Mona, Lucas, etc. simply by participating and not speaking up when something happened. Being Transgender, especially surrounded by people who don’t accept you, simply by being true to yourself, is the worst kind of rejection and tortured as child, she simply wanted to be loved for who she was and her father wouldn’t give that to her.It’s why she’s obsessed with dolls, she wanted to be like them, she wanted to dress like them, but was told it was wrong by everyone around her, she never had a childhood.

And here’s the funny thing… When you think about what Alison did, she was trying to force people to tell the truth. Making Paige come out, have Melissa find out about Ian cheating, have Mr. Montgomery tell Ella about his affair, make Mona live to her utmost potential, even if she was a bitch while doing it. I think Alison was always Cece’s favorite not only because she was the younger sister she always wanted but she forced people to be unapologetic-ally themselves, and face those consequences head on.

But, there’s the other side to her that sees the liars and Alison as every single person that told her she was a freak as a child for being transgender and hates them for it.

I never thought I would sympathize with A/Cece, but I finally understand why she is the way she is. Miss Drake, I respect you.


If you guys have trouble keeping up with who is related to who, I created a guide that’s easy to figure out, pink is for mother, blue for father, and green for possible father. 

THE BIGGEST CLUE ABOUT BETHANY

Hey PLL’s! A friend of mine found something on FB. I don’t know where but she sent it to me and THIS IS HUGE! LMFAO!

You have to rewatch the Halloween Epi 2.13 to make it easier to see

In the truck infront of Toby’s house are removals boxes! And the inscription says “Jenna’s room” and “BETHANY” Omg ! It’s true! Bethany belongs to Toby’s/Jenna’s family! They MIGHT BE RELATED! Plus the radley cab! It all makes sense now! The twin story could belong to Bethany+Toby! The boxes say Jenna’s room and Bethany, so Bethany stayed in Jenna’s room, right? But, they can’t be twins because of their difference in years!

Credits go to the genius who finds this HUGE CLUE! Spread the word, PLL’s ! We’re so close to the answer, we’re getting warmer! We will find out the truth by ourselves!


SO CLOSE! I cannot..! haha

Mona’s motives were that she was tortured and tormented by Ali and she wanted to get revenge so badly. But I think this ‘A’ is different. I think this ‘A’ is severely twisted. I think that he wants his doll so he can play with her and manipulate her and control her – and I think that’s Alison. I think it’s an obsession that’s totally different from Mona’s. It’s dangerous and it’s going to be sick and twisted and I’m excited for fans to find out more.

Cece Drake: The Introduction to Big A/Uber A/Red Coat/Black Veil, Season 2 and Season 3

So during the PLL hiatus I usually go back and re-watch things from the beginning. So, I was watching season 2, specifically the ending episodes of season 2 that lead up to the finale, and I noticed something. They were literally setting us up for Cece arriving as big A since Season 2 episode 18, a whole 14 episodes before she graces our screens. In 2x18 Caleb is helping Spencer, Aria, and Emily trying to clear up the footage from the flash drive they got from the locker, when they cleared it up all of a sudden they find a drivers license on the floor. 

The liars realize it’s Alison with a wig on, they didn’t know why she had this fake drivers license when she already had another one. Later on Spencer breaks down and tells Hanna that Caleb was helping them, she shows her the fake ID and Hanna tells Spencer that she had seen Ali in that wig before. At the salon she saw Alison and she said she was pretending to be someone else, Vivian Darkbloom. Spencer then googles the name Vivian Darkbloom and figures out it’s an anagram for Vladimir Nabacov, the writer of Lolita. Hanna then goes over to her book shelf and takes out a copy of Lolita that she “borrowed” from Alison.

In the book, she finds a ticket stub with a claim number on it, she calls the laundry place asking if they still had whatever was left there, it turned out they did. Spencer then goes to there and picks up the red coat, In the red coat the girls find a phone number, 215-469-3561. The girls call the number and when there’s no answer they leave a message saying they were friends of Vivian and to please call them back. 

Later that same episode, after there was no call back, Aria calls the number once again and this time their was an answer…. Someone with a very familiar voice. 

“No one here knows anyone named Vivian. Don’t call here again.” If anyone asks for someone you don’t know, you usually don’t get pissed off and hang up on them like that. But, that person did know someone named Vivian, and she did know who that coat belonged to, and she knew everything about everyone. The girl on the other end of that phone call? Cece Drake. 

During the next couple episodes the girls investigate what little leads they have, ultimately leading to dead ends. After 2x23 the red coat seems to disappear into thin air, the girls didn’t even know it was missing. Something they found (well, that Jason provided them with) was a bag full of Alison’s things, they went through every little thing in the bag until they came across this post card, on the front it had a picture of “The Lost Woods Resort” and the back was left blank other than the #1.

Now, we get to the 2x25 finale, the girls talk to Mona at the masked ball prompting a flashback 

Mona had run into Alison in Brookhaven a week before she went missing, when Mona saw her, she was dressed as Vivian Darkbloom in the Red Coat and brunette wig. When Mona questioned what she was doing there, Alison said she was spying on someone and tried to get rid of her, but Mona wouldn’t go so easily. Alison asked what it would take for her to make like she never saw her there, Mona replied that she wanted to be popular… So, Alison took out the postcard, the same Postcard the girls just found of the Lost Woods Resort and wrote down a number for her to call. Mona assumed that it was Alison’s number, but it wasn’t, it was Cece’s number, the number that was in the red coat…  215-469-3561

Cece and Mona had known each other since the beginning. When the girls called the phone number asking for Vivian Darkbloom, Cece knows immediately who was calling and comes back to rosewood, returning to her throne. Taking Mona back under her wing. Then, she steals her red coat back.

“I did everything you asked me to.”

Cece was the only person in the world who knew about Alison and her Vivian Darkbloom alias, making her those fake ID’s, giving her the name, etc.So, when the liars called Cece asking for Vivian Darkbloom… Cece knew they were looking for Alison and trying to figure out what happened to her. The liars literally knocked on A’s door to let her know they were coming and gave her an open invitation.

Now, let’s count the A appearances here….

Season 3 episode 1, Girl in red coat, Alison mask, with blonde hair forces Mona to dig up “Alison”/Bethany’s grave, Emily stands over the empty grave thinking she did it. (Which makes 100% sense because the first thing Cece would do after she realizes the girls are looking for answers, get rid of the body they think is Alison). While Hanna is visiting Mona in Radley, she hallucinates seeing Alison in a red coat reading Lolita, I mean hello… red coat…Vivian Darkbloom.. phone number… Big A.. (I actually have an entire theory surrounding Alison/Cece and Lolita, I may write it up sometime)

Season 3 episode 2, Emily receives a necklace of Bethany’s teeth with a message that read “Mona played with Dolls, I play with Body Parts”. At the end of the episode, red coat goes in to buy a bunch of black hoodies and black leather gloves. (A team… ASSEMBLE!) 

Season 3 episode 3  A gloved hand is seen pouring themselves a drink while making another necklace with the teeth. “A” puts the vodka bottle into a freezer full of ice. A body bag is chilling in the ice. “A” is seen unzipping the bag before the screen cuts to black.

Season 3 episode 4 Mona loses her visitation privileges, at the end of the episode A is at the Montecito airport in California, they hack into Radley and give Mona back her visitation rights. That same episode Hanna gets a text from A saying “I’m everywhere Hanna” just as Caleb reveals that his mom was involved in a car accident where the person was trying to run her off the road.

Season 3 episode 5 Oddly enough there’s no A ending this episode, someone moving to Rosewood perhaps (From California where Cece just happens to be FROM)? However, Garretts mother seemed to have a stroke and ended up in the hospital.

Season 3 episode 6 Spencer recovers a note from Mrs. Reynold’s hospital room, saying “April Rose has the proof”, at first they think it’s a person but later in the episode Jason comes to Spencer’s house and says it’s an antique shop. Jason drives both of them there. Spencer looks around and finally she sees a piece of jewelry that belonged to Alison, prompting a flashback.

In the flashback Spencer asks if the person who gave the anklet to her was just “another faceless, nameless, revolving door boyfriends who adore you” and Alison replies with a quiet “No, just a friend” she then proceeds to take off her robe, revealing a red party dress. Alison says she’s “Going out, my friend has someone who can get us ID’s, I’m going to a party to pick them up and I’ll be right back” and before she leaves she turns to Spencer and says “I gotta go, my friend’s here.” To which Spencer asks “Which friend?” and finally Alison replies, “You don’t know her.”

Judging by the charms on the anklet, one of which is a gold Eiffel Tower, the other being a gold “A” and the fact that Alison said Spencer wouldn’t know her, the only person on the show with that description and the access to making multiple fake ID’s and drivers licenses, you can bet the fingers point to one girl. Cece. 

In the last scene of 3x06, we see “A” eating a bowl of ice-cream, reading the news about the dismissal of charges in the DiLaurentis murder case. “A” then circles a “Rooms for Rent” ad in the Classified section, and proceeds to call the number on the ad. Someone’s moving to Rosewood and plans on staying awhile. I wonder who shows up the next episode?

Season 3 episode 7 “CrAzy”

Say hello to Big A everyone.

So Spencer tells Aria on the phone that A- put a blood capsule in her bag.

And 10 second after they hang up Spencer gets the A- text about the blood?


Seems to me that A- waited with sending the text to make sure Spencer was aware of the blood capsule in her bag first.

Sorry but there is no way that A- could of known that Spencer found the capsule and texted her that fast unless Aria is A- and sended the text.

SPOILER ALERT!

Okay, first of all, the finale tonight was INCREDIBLE. Seriously. It wasn’t one of those episodes where nothing happens until the last five minutes. It was packed full of amazing scenes and several key reveals.

1. Ali told the Hasting parents about A and they are now officially on the case and working with the police.

2. A’s “lair” where he watches the girls in the Dollhouse was discovered by the police, and is at “The Campbell Farm” where Mrs. Hastings apparently used to take the girls to go apple picking. (Andrew Campbell connection???)

And perhaps the biggest reveal of all…

3. CHARLES (DILAURENTIS) IS A. Spencer finds A’s memorabilia room in the Dollhouse and inside is a lot of personal things, like framed photos of two little blonde boys and families and stuff. There’s also a projector, and when Spencer turns it on, a video plays….

Here’s a still from the video!!

You can’t tell in this shot, but they are at the Campbell farm apple picking, and Mrs. D is holding baby Ali, and she says that Ali is the boys’ sister. SO JASON HAS A TWIN. THE TWIN IS CHARLES. CHARLES IS A.

Obviously, something bad happened to Charles. There has to be a good reason why he’s been away this whole time and why his family acted like he didn’t exist.

Now, there’s a possibility that Ali doesn’t know he exists. Remember, we don’t know when Charles “left” the family. She could’ve still been a baby!

But Jason HAS to know that he has a twin brother. They coexisted!! 

He has some explaining to do.

Possible Back Story to Why A is + PIGTUNIA!

Since pigtunia is making a comeback, i did some research into pig puppets, and i came upon something interesting. There are studies that pigs help ppl with mental disorders or who are going through a trauma in their lives, or who are living stressful lives. There is a book called “By all means A Zen Cautionary Tale"by Edward Brown. Theres alot of similarities in this book that can relate to aria. 

1.The cover of the book has a pig hand puppet, and we all know arias puppet pigtunia that byron got for her while they were in iceland i believe:

BEWARE OF THE PIG -marlene king

2. cautionary tale depending on what context you use this ,can mean to warn the hearer of a danger. This book is a zen cautionary tale, and as you read a brief summary of what it’s about: “As the cover advises, this is a "Zen Cautionary Tale.” But against what exactly are we to be cautioned? The darkness that may lurk beneath the safe refuge of childhood memories?…” here’s another excerpt of the summary “  Perhaps it’s simply a warning that Zen practice could lead to talking with stuffed animals–and you don’t know what they will say! Edward Brown takes us on a winding tale through the real-life events of a stuffed piggy named Ponce, whose path suddenly crosses with that of an imaginary person, named, at times, Edward. “ source: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20840787-by-all-means 

3. so right away, this caught my attention, what could pigtunia be to aria and is there a back story with aria. So here are some further details of what this book is about: “ as you get into the first couple pages of the book, the main character edward tries to free his pig puppet from the jaws of a neighborhood feline cat as the cat tries to slink his way out of edwards door. so through the tale, edward keeps his trusty pig puppet that he saved named ponce by his side as the story goes on to tell about mid-life love story and a near tragic climax etc.

4. here’s something more interesting about the book “ As narrator, Ponce adeptly moves between the voice of Ed’s wounded child-self to that of the grown-up Edward — who in turn shows up alternately as Edward the venerable Zen master or “Eddiebear” (Ed’s childhood nickname) — the flawed human being for whom centeredness or masteries of any kind are moving targets.

5. ok so by reading that and gettting an idea of the book, makes me wonder if there’s more to arias childhood and why pigtunia seems to be important in PLL. here are few connections i pieced together:

  • aria’s nickname used to be pookie bear
  • in the book, edward had abandoment issues stemming back to the loss of his mother at the age of 3 which continues to fuel him as he gets older.
  • aria onced asked caleb “was your dad around when your were like 6 or 7?” i thought this was weird that she would ask him that , which makes me wonder about arias childhood.
  • the flashbacks to what happened that night, pigtunia is apart of this, ali was holding it before she left the barn, and where did pigtunia go? why is pigtunia important?
  • the pilot of the show even starts off the montgomerys and pigtunia being introduced to us. so is this BIG A business centered around aria & the montgomerys & pigtunia?
  • we all know about the montgomerys and mental illness running in the family, and also the fact that aria already had a patient file with the therapist.
  • theres also clues many came upon about the yellow wallpaper mona pointed out to aria, and the yellow paper is a book about a mental patient (i wont go into that haha)
  • ok so what is the deal with aria, is pigtunia her alter ego of sorts? kinda like in this book how ponce is narrator and a protector of eddibear. is aria struggling with her past , something she cant let go and has driven her mad? has she exhausted all these feelings into pigutnia and some how she has developed a second person who is out for revenge?
  • could her parents trying to make up for something ? Byron has expressed how he hasn’t done a good job of protecting aria from getting burned. Aria once told ezra, i’ve been burned before. maybe not literally but as another way of saying i’ve been hurt or betrayed.
  • Marlene did say we will feel sympathetic to A and why A is.
  • is A pigtunia? when aria is talking about A, she does seem like she’s talking about herself/pigtunia, perhaps A is channeled through pigtunia, someone aria talks toand can confide in, who takes care of all the bad things. just thinking out loud here!
  • the mirror has 3 faces: aria, pigtunia, A?
  • Aria did tell ezra her aunt ruth stuffed her cat and talks to it. Was aria telling us something about herself and pigtunia? 
  • why haven’t we seen pigtunia in so long? and why is pigtunia making a comeback just as we are about to get to the finale and have all the clues we need to figure out who A is?

Here’s what some people say about this book “I believe By All Means can provide valuable comfort and support to anyone struggling with a mental disorder — in themselves or a loved one. Writing from the perspective of someone with lifelong depression, and as a parent to an adult child with depression, I can attest that those of us who are dealing with the symptoms of a mental disorder face one daily, constant, and fundamental task: to manage our minds; and, when pulled away by scary, negative thoughts, to step back from the precipice of hopelessness and despair that can engulf us. Like Eddiebear and Ponce, we each carry emotional wounds into adulthood – wounds that can make dealing with difficult symptoms, and thoughts, all the tougher. But, like the characters in this honest and insight-packed book, we absolutely can acquire and commit to a set of practices – call them spiritual or therapeutic, it doesn’t really matter – that will help us find a way out. “ source : http://psychcentral.com/lib/by-all-means/00019012

Let me know what you guys think! Could aria be the back story to A and why A is? Could A be centered around the montgomery family? could there be a tragic tale to aria? :)

thebestplltheories pllcrazyness rosewoodspy spencerslakehouse killerariaisa analyzinga pllheada rosewoodclown canyoukeepa3ecret

A is Charles. Charles is Wren.

Some of the following were our own thoughts. Some were inspired by other bloggers!

1. Wren is sketchy AF

2. He is one of the only characters, besides the girls, who has been present from the beginning but never a suspect. The liars have been obsessed with pretty much every new character when they are introduced, except Wren.

3.  Wren is a Doctor. A/Charles clearly has LOTS of money. Some people seem to think this indicates Ezra, which is also possible. However, we think his connection to a rich family, who he seems to not want anything to do with, seems to be too obvious. But we gotta admit his security setup in his cabin basement was extremly creepy.

4. “Love Thy Neighbour” poster was seen in Wren’s apartment when Spencer visted him one drunken night. A similar poster with the same phrase was seen in the Dollhouse.

5. On the wall in Dr. Sullivan’s office after someone broke in, the message on the wall read, “Nosey bitches die”. Nosey is spelt in British English. The liars had “Tea Time” with Mona at the dollhouse which is a traditional English custom.

6. Wren is mysteriously the Doctor for everyone who needs one! Hannah, Emily, Garett’s mother, Mona. Are there no other Doctors in Rosewood?!

7. Marlene said that the game was stolen from Mona in season three. Between season 2 and 3, Wren begins volunteering at Radley. He would have had close access to Mona in this time. Also, how does he have spare time to be volunteering in Radley while he is doing his residency as a Doctor with the hospital. Doctors completing their residency are usually working ALL the time. Plot hole? Or sketchy AF?

8. As a Doctor at the hospital which also houses the morgue, Wren would have access to all of the files such as Autopsy, Reports, Personal information, results (like emily’s during the HGH incident), and emily’s xrays etc. He could have easily changed Bethany’s records with whoever is actually IN the grave ( Yes, we do not believe Bethany is dead or was the body found in the grave - future post)

9. Wren, as a Doctor would have Access to all the various drugs we see A using over time and would know exactly what to do with it. The date rape drug in emily’s flask, the HGH in her muscle pain ointment, drugs given to Spencer, the drugs used on the girls in the van,  Also, A was very comfortable implanting a note into Hannah’s tooth. A seems to know exactly what each drug does and HOW to use it. A has also had access to body parts such as teeth and finger bones. We doubt A killed people to aqquire those parts. However, Doctors have access to cadavers. Hm.. do these sound like things a High school kid could do? Highly unlikely.

10. Deductive Reasoning excercise: A loves a vodka soda. Wren loves a vodka soda. Charles loves a vodka soda?

11. Charles was trying to recreate the prom that Melissa and Ian attended. We know that Jason, Melissa, Ian, Wren, Garett, Noel’s brother, and Cece are all about 7 years older than the girls. This would put them all at the same school and same prom. For some reason, Charles/Wren/A was  unable to attend this prom but felt like he should have. Thus the need to recreate it.

12. Wren is a talented artist. We saw his drawing of a woman wearing a red coat with her family at the barn. This family resembles the mannequin family at the Dollhouse. This also reminds us of the barn in the video with Jessica Dilaurentis.

13. Wren is the name of a bird. The show is riddled with metaphors and references to birds, most notably “To kill a mockingbird”.

14. Wren means ruler. His last name is also KINGston. In the dollhouse there is a Lion’s head. The king of the jungle. King = Ruler.

15 A. Wren told Hannah his father had a mental illness. Some mental illnesses are hereditary. Charles obsession with Alison and the girls could stem from a need for revenge or notion of hate that is only MAXIMIZED by the mental illness. Unlike some other theories, we do not believe Charles is crazy, thus Charles is A. There are reasons for the hateful acts, but the mental illness is only heightening those emotions.

15 B. We know that Bethany was in Radley. We know Wren’s father (possibly Byron’s brother?) had a mental illness. We believe there is a connection between them and Wren/Charles, but we will save that for a future post. * Bethany also shares an artistic talent.

16. Wren told Spencer he has OCD. We all know how much of a neat freak A is.

17. Although the boys in the video seem like twins, we do not believe they are. Jessica tells one of the boys to come give your sister a kiss. That baby could not be Alison as the boys seem to be about 4 or 5 years old and we know Jason is 7 years older than Ali. We believe that baby could have been Bethany who is older than the liars. One of the boys could be her brother, but not both. That boy is Charles/ Wren. The baby is Bethany. And the other boy is Jason. Jessica could have simply been holding someone else’s child. We do not believe this is a twin story because it was done in the books. Just changing it to another character, so close to Ali, would not be very exciting. Also, we do not believe pll would dabble into incest ( Melissa and Spencer.) (more to come in a future post)

This is a working theory/list. Over time we will add and change more as our thoughts change. Still only believe Charles/Wren is bigA, but there is an Uber A!

“You’d Be Surprised to Know who your Friends Aren’t” -Ali + MOLE Amongst the Liars?

So back in 2x13 FIRST SECRET episode, many of us noticed that scene where ali whispered to spence “ you’d be surprised to know who your friends aren’t” so what was ali referring to exactly? well, ali offered to help spencer win the election, so this gave us the impressing that ali had access to the votes which she did when she handed them to spencer, but spencer didn’t look at them and threw them into the fire. Ali was suprised at this and said “ i thought you read them first” then she goes on to say “ you’d be surprised to know who your friends aren’t” during this scene, many of us noticed the cam focused on aria and hanna in the background, im not sure if emily was in that background but aria and hanna for sure. so , was this to suggest that someone didn’t vote for spencer? I THINK SO!  

This has to be a big clue , after all, the liars have accused darn near everyone of being A. I personally believe there is a MOLE amongst the liars, (not saying who A is, since figuring out A is quite complicated for all of us lol, but hears something to think about, has anyone thought that the driving force of A could be one of the liars? if A is always a step ahead, A would have to be controlling things within the circle of the liars. We all know how A can orchestrate things, we know A has been giving instructions to mona for a long time now so mona has carried out alot of A’s plans (hence “A is everywhere and nowhere), A can use people to make them look like their A, A has aliases, but for all this A business to work, wouldn’t there have to be MOLE ON THE INSIDE OF THE LIARS making sure the identity is never known? perhaps one of the liars know who A is, and protecting their identity by being a mole) Who could this mole be?

  • Here’s some clues/suspicions i came upon:
  • first, we know the camera focused on aria and hanna in the background of 2x13. possible moles?
  • since ali warned spencer about who your friends aren’t, i solely believe spencer has a mole on her hands, “someone who she knows well, has her fooled” remember that line from garrett? was it really melissa who had spence fooled or is is someone else we are missing here?
  • ok so back in the beginning of season 3 i believe, spencer and aria formed SPARIA team, so now we see aria and spencer working together alot , and I noticed aria does control how spencer finds clues. how? aria is always the first to suggest something, the first to give her opinion on something and make it sound very logical in a sense, and everytime , spencer decides to go off on what aria says , which sadly leads all the liars to a dead end when it comes to being a step ahead of A. Has anyone ever wonder how A can always be a step ahead of the liars? There would have to be MOLE.
  • so many of us have noticed this pattern with aria, the one whos always conducting , and who seems to know exactly how A thinks.
  • In a way, it’s almost as if aria is using spencer to get ahead of the game, to keep spencer from getting too close to the identity of BIG A, but close enough to a point aria can turn the situation in her favor.
  • Back to what ali said to spencer in the first secret. so somebody amongst the liars didn’t vote for spencer. Here’s another clue. In season 5x06 spencer and emily come to the conclusion that somebody has to get into radley and that eddie wanted ezra to know that theres something to look into at radley. aria quickly says “ I vote spencer! well you know the place the best ” but this is silly of aria to vote spencer, its obvious spencer cant get back into radley under the circumstances emily pointed out. so of course this leads to aria being the one to volunteer at radley which is already suspicious to get info on bethany. question is, why did aria use the words I VOTE SPENCER? was this a way of her saying, ok since i didn’t vote for you in the election , i vote for you now. so is aria the one who didnt vote for spencer in THE FIRST SECRET? thats one way to analyze that. Clearly, ali knows who didnt vote for spencer since she helped spencer win the election.
  • when thinking about all this, let’s keep in mind A’s brlliant plan was to get ali put in jail, mona carried this plan out , but mona also wanted to double cross A so she could be the hero and figure out who A is , and get ali out of jail. We all know this bethany business could be completely false in many ways, from what we know of bethany now. Which keeps the suspicious on aria. plus, in the bethany letter, it said, bethany “FOUND a sketch book in the art box” this doesn’t mean all of those drawings are from bethany. Remember aria was showing spencer this book and aria made a face when spencer noticed how the first couple of drawings are normal and then turn to evil, and aria changed the subject? Could this have been arias sketch book or somebodys sketchbook that aria knows? when she went to volunteer, she did say she was comfortable there, as if shes been to a similar place like radley in the past? just something to keep in mind here, mona was in the works of double crossing A while trying to carry out A’s brillant plan.

There’s already a ton of clues that question arias loyalty to spencer, so far since team sparia formed, A has been one step ahead, and with the liars jumping to conclusions and accusing the wrong person. Spencer is the one who takes the lead in figuring out the clues , but who is feeding the thoughts into her head? aria. In terms of where things are headed now, and with spencer realizing that she keeps making mistakes and accusing the wrong people, will spencer start thinking for herself and possibly start looking at her friends as possible suspects? There has to be a MOLE within the liars , not to say they are particularly A maybe they are given what i said above it’s possible, but there must be a MOLE if A is able to be one step ahead all the time. what you guys think, is there a mole? is it aria? hanna? emily? :)
