Will Mona Vanderwaal Really Die, or Does She Pull an Ali to Cover Tracks? #PLL

image

Things aren’t looking good for fan favorite, Mona Vanderwaal, after last night’s promo for the summer final of Pretty Little Liars, all clues seem to point to the villain turned liar, turned forgivable character. But why would the show risk getting rid of such an interesting character who brings so much to the storyline, whom flashback of the night that Alison DiLaurentis actually disappeared never been shown, only through the eyes of Alison herself who has proven to be untrustworthy? We are thinking this could be an interesting time to introduce a secret of the Vanderwaal’s plus the adding of Mona’s mother, played by actress Sydney Penny.

Mona’s character holds many secrets and her Radley involvement plays a prominent role to some of the clues surrounding the sanitarium. Why kill her off now? Her vengeance with Ali seems more believable than Jenna’s, whom we’ve seen working with Mona in the 100th episode. Janel Parrish (Mona Vanderwaal) character seems to be a leader amongst Jenna and Sydney and she’d mentioned to Ezra in the Season 4 Winter premiere that she was entitled to her revenge.

If there was any truth to Alison’s story in the Season 4 winter finale and Mona helped Ali fake her own death then it is very possible that Mona could be pulling a death hoax of her own. Through binge watching the series, Mona has been very careful covering her tracks through the liars mistakes, as her alias ‘A.’  After watching last night’s episode Tanner told Mr. Montgomery that “when things start to get more complicated you can be sure that someone is doing that on purpose. Someone smart.”

Mona has never failed when it comes to the brainiest on the show. She and Spencer Hastings are both intelligent individuals, but Mona has the ability to be very convincing and has also proven that she is a terrific liar.

Everything surrounding the death of Bethany Young is pointing to the liars. I recall the ‘Liars Guide to Rosewood’ that aired before the Season 4 summer premiere and Mona was the narrator. She mentions “A had a way of effecting every aspect of their lives, including their investigation into Ali’s murder.” Mona was ‘A’ during this particular time and it seems that she was the one sending the videos to the girls. If you notice, every piece of evidence that the liars have had in their possession has somehow been lost, stolen, or destroyed. Even the body of Bethany Young was stolen from Ali’s grave by Mona, Redcoat, and whomever took the pictures of the liars at the scene.

I’ve also noticed how Mona miraculously tossed the idea up “I should have died on that stupid cliff.” Then she goes on to warn Aria about Alison, this was a very smart move and sets up the storyline for Fatal Finale. Aria and the other liars will team up with Mona as they turn against former friend Alison. Could Mona only be using the liars to make her escape route? Blaming Alison for everything, therefore leaving her untrustworthy with the liars, and pinning everything on the girls, the death of Bethany Young and her murder? It would definitely make a very interesting plot for the Winter season.

Alright guys so I just had a really bad thought.

Now, I’m more or less new to this, so I need all you PLL’ers to bear with my unorganized flow of ideas and try to hear me out, because I really think I’m on to something.
*This post contains some spoilers of last night’s episode “No One Here Can Love or Understand Me,” as well as some curses triggered by my seriously disgruntled state of mind towards Marlene King.*

So, it seems pretty apparent that Melissa’s the one they’re gonna kill off next episode, the evidence with the most merit being Marlene’s gratitude post thanking Torrey DeVitto & all that, pointing out how working with her has been a gift, as if saying goodbye.

Now, we all know that she has a knack for making us think one thing & then going a completely different direction with it, so what if this “goodbye” post doesn’t necessarily mean her character gets killed off? What if it means, now that Melissa’s partaking of that night is out there in the open, and is going to wind up in the hands of Tanner or A, Melissa’s character just won’t be as stable & free to return to Rosewood as she pleases? She is obviously going to end up wanted for the murder of Bethany Young, and her father knew that. That’s why, from the second she told him the secret at the police station, he urged her to leave the country. And if this is applied to the storyline, all it means is that Torrey DeVitto won’t be a full-cast member & will only appear in cameos, but I mean, what else is new?

*One other thing I remembered is this picture circling around of Police Tape across Spencer’s room. I now assume that this has to do with the confiscation of Melissa’s confession DVD 

Now, while she has been going to England, I never quite understood why. The only connection out there tying her to that place is Wren. However, what if Melissa didn’t go back there this time, despite all her claims?
My theory is that her father, a knowledgeable man in the field of law, would know to send her to a place with no extradition. I’ve been reading up the laws, and found that England seems more or less cooperative with the U.S. on the concept.

Then I’ve tried to think of where else Melissa could possibly flee to avoid extradition, & I remembered that Paris, France has been one of the motifs in the show, starting with Emison’s early development. After some research, I’ve discovered that France is more strict & careful with their extradition and is rarely known to cooperate with the U.S. Now, this doesn’t seem very far-fetched, provided that Peter Hastings has always looked out for his family, even if it meant being a secretive douchebag. He would make sure Melissa would get to a safe place, far from where extradition could get her. And far from A’s grasp, as we all know how much A hates to travel.

Now, assuming all the above is true, I’ve got to thinking: At this point, even the minor characters like Sydney seem to all have a prominent role in pushing the liars to their breaking point. Additionally, Marlene King claimed in an interview that the character to meet their fate in the Season 5 finale will be a MAJOR character, further ruling out Melissa. So If not Melissa, who can they possibly kill off? And after the firefly bullshit from last night’s episode, I got my answer.

It has to be Caleb.

I know, I know. I apologize if your heart stopped for a bit, but Marlene King has spit on the Haleb shippers before {especially for her Ravenswood storyline}, and I’m just trying to throw this possibility out there, as I believe it is very possible and I don’t want to see Halebers suffer the way they did during & after Ravenswood. So as much as you may hate the idea, please hear me out.

We all know, very well, that Marlene does not give two shits about Haleb, So why try & waste her precious production time, especially the last few minutes, trying to show a promising recovery/future for Hanna and Caleb, both individually and in their relationship? 

Reading into any classic novel or play shown in the background of this show, you can put together the idea that Marlene loves almost nothing more than an unforseen, ironic tragedy.

She’s portrayed this through

And now all we have left is Haleb. 

The fall of Haleb- and the death of Caleb, is something you won’t see coming. It’s something that feels almost wrong and impossible after the finale of this week’s episode, but have we not learned anything from Marlene’s patterns? She’s playing us, Halebers.

Another element Marlene loves to add is foreshadowing, and that can be seen last night after Caleb tells her the truth about Ravenswood, when Hanna says

Now we all know the little “A” clips that occur at nearly the end of every episode. What was last night’s? Miranda in the form of a fucking firefly. Are supernatural forces helping “A” now, or is Miranda the Ghost still in denial of the fact that her & Caleb will never be together? The pattern with the A clips seems to be that they show what A will be up to in the next or in upcoming episodes, and while the POV was the same as it would be, something made me think that we were watching through the eyes of Miranda, creeping on Caleb and possibly coming to him in his sleep. Hanna, seeing the fireflies, got really anxious, and even started to dial someone. I feel like at the last few seconds Hanna understands that something is wrong & she won’t be able to wake Caleb up or something

*Also, to wrap up, let me just carefully urge you guys to rewatch the finale of Ravenswood, as the understood interpretation of it was that Caleb died with the others.. but don’t watch too much, you don’t want to give Marlene those extra views she’s trying to get through this twisted plan. The way I see it, after Caleb is killed off next week, she’s going to manipulate everyone into understanding what really hapenned by watching Ravenswood, that haunted, idiotic spinoff. It seriously pisses me off how she won’t accept the fact that this stupid spinoff is cancelled and over with, and now she’s trying to shove it in the PLL storyline.

So there’s my really bad thought, as much as I hope I’m wrong, I see this coming and I just want to warn the Haleb shippers out there to be prepared. Thanks for sticking around through and for hearing me out but
