PLL Analysis: The “Liars Lament” Board Game

Wow, I haven’t made a post like this since my Rosewood Timeline, but here goes my attempt at analyzing the Liars Lament Board Game that was introduced in episode 7x11: 

la-ment:

noun - a passionate expression of grief or sorrow.

verb - mourn (a person’s loss or death).


#1) The House of Hastings - Here, we see that the “START” section of the game in the upper left hand corner is located at none other than The Hastings’ home. With closer inspection we can see that all 5 Liars are standing right in front of the building where this entire story began on That fateful Night back in the summer of 2009; The Barn:

Blink, and you might miss one of the most important buildings from this entire story peaking out from the Hastings’ backyard, and it sure seems that this is where the Game is meant to begin.

You may also catch a glimpse of the mailbox (bottom right hand corner of GIF) which reads “DiLaurentis”, and we all know at this point that the DiLaurentis house is located on the other side of the Hastings’ property. It is only fitting that the board game would begin in this very location, where it all began.

It is also easy to notice that the Liars are all dressed in Season 1 attire, which must be paying homage to the notion that in the final 10 episodes, everything is going to come “full circle”, aka “back to the beginning”. (And can we just mention real quick that Alison seems to be the only Liar standing on a square):

Hmmm… interesting. Regardless if this is a clue or not, it was definitely meant to be shown that all of the Liars are dressed the same exact way they used to dress when the A Game began all those years ago. 


#2) Radley - All roads lead back to Radley, right? It’s very interesting that the representation of Radley portrayed on the board game represents a literal Hell on Earth. Look at all of those trapped & lost souls!

We already know this is probably going to be an important part of the Game & I am really excited to see where it takes us. 


#3) The Church - The place of so many Rosewood funerals (Alison, Wilden, CeCe, etc.), the place where we last saw Ian alive, the first time we were introduced to The Black Widow, and the very location of Charlotte’s murder; the Rosewood Chapel has been a staple of Pretty Little Liars since the very beginning. 

This is also the “HOME” section, where the Liars get see their tasks displayed:

And it may be even more important than we thought… with the introduction of:


#4) The Secret Passage Way - Connects Radley to the church. Is this a clue towards Charlotte’s killer? And to throw it all the way back to Season 1, is this how Mona/Ian were able to escape the church so quickly after Alison threw him off of the bell tower? It would explain a lot in regards to how easy it’s been to sneak in & out of both Radley & the church, and now we have our answer.

There’s been a secret passageway the whole dang time!


#5) The Lost Woods Resort - Now this is a majorly important part of the story. I wonder if there is some type of passageway underneath here as well, since Uber A was able to kidnap Hanna at the end of 6B.


#6) Mystery Location - Which I am willing to bet is the location of the Dollhouse. We already know that Charlotte’s dollhouse was located off of the same exact road as the Lost Woods Resort. We also see a very short clip in the 7B Promo showing Ali’s player piece (in the yellow shirt) at this very location. 

And we all know that the yellow shirt was worn many times by many people, especially in the dollhouse (Ali, CeCe, Bethany, Mona & Sara). So seeing Ali’s game piece in this spot makes me think it may possibly be the dollhouse. (Even though I don’t understand why it wouldn’t just blatantly say that it was the dollhouse if it was actually meant to represent it. So I guess we’ll just stay tuned on this one…)


#7) Rosewood High - Where we spent the majority of our 7 years. Now with Ali, Emily & Paige all working there, I think we will be seeing a whole lot more of it to come.

^ Still taken from the 7B Promo


#8) The Hospital - Which automatically just makes me think of Wren.

This is the location of the very first “Dare” selected by Spencer in 7x11. We already know how many times we’ve had to visit Rosewood Hospital, and there have been many connections to this location in the past. Plan on seeing more!


#9) The Police Station/Jail - Wilden, Toby, Marco, Officer Barry. Shall I go on? The amount of corruption we have seen pass through Rosewood PD is something we are all very familiar with as well. I wonder what kind of fun challenges the Liars will have to face at this location. 


#10) The Cemetery - So many bodies have been buried here.


#11) The Brew - Ezra Fitz’s loft, the first place the Liars met CeCe, and the place of hundreds of secret discussions. Is this an important part of the Game, or is it only there for show?


I wonder where is this Game taking us; on the ride of our lives I hope. 

So there’s my quick analysis.

Let me know any input you may have, or any locations I might have missed :)

Can you imagine Henry in the later chapters hurriedly looking through drawers for something and he opens one and he sees this little beat up photograph. And it's the whole crew at the studio all happy and having a fun time but like. The corners are covered in ink, ink handprints on the sides like someone was holding it carefully. Several faces are crossed out in ink. What would Henry do oh no

@whatisthisnonsense

Here is actually the BIGGEST Easter Egg in The Last Jedi Trailer that no one is talking about. Those aren’t stars, those are KYBER CRYSTALS (crystals = The Whills = Rey)

The very first shot of the trailer. It seems to be depicting a night sky.

However.

I believe this to be a red herring, and that it is actually to do something much more important.

I don’t think that’s a shot of stars. I think that’s a shot showing stones.

More specifically, kyber crystals.

Why is this significant and why do I think that this is actually what they are alluding to? 

Here is the breakdown:

Rogue one (Jedha, Guardians of the Whills, Kyber Crystals) + Skywalker lightsaber + Force Vision = Ancient Order of the Whills = Rey

It’s okay to be confused.

This is a theory I have had for a while, and when I saw that first shot, I started to grin like crazy, because it slotted into meta so well that I became convinced that what I predict will happen, will actually happen.

I recommend to read my post for the full theory and then look back at the beginning of the TLJ trailer:

http://sakurau121.tumblr.com/post/154779656150/how-does-rogue-one-effect-the-future-of-star-wars

If not, I will try to make this theory explanation as short and clear as possible, but bear with me!

1. Rogue One = Introduction to The Whills, Kyber Crystals, Temples

It’s no coincidence that Rogue One introduced us to the idea of the Guardian of the Whills, Jedha and Kyber Crystals. Jedha is home to the ‘Kyber Temple’ a.k.a. Temple of the Whills, which actually tells you a lot, because it means that the Whills and Kyber Crystals are closely linked together.

The whole exploration of the force in RO has absolutely nothing to do with the Jedi but is actually tied to the Whills.


In other words, the Whills as an Order is older than the Jedi. Luke, I think, was searching for the first Jedi Temple.

But what he found on Achto wasn’t a Jedi Temple. What he found was the original Temple of the Whills. 

Why can I make this assumption?

The beginning of the trailer proves this, because, like Jedha, Achto has kyber crystals hidden underneath it’s rocky surface. Again, this is associated to the Whills, not the Jedi. RO explicitly points this out and it is completely deliberate.

Hence:

There is a rumor going around that one of these books is ‘The Journal of the Whills’ and that is what Luke was searching for. I think this is actually probable.

2. Rey + Skywalker lightsaber a.k.a. Kyber Crystal Within

I  believe that the lightsaber itself is actually irrelevant. It doesn’t matter who made the lightsaber or even who used it. It is the crystal inside which is the crucial point. The crystal, which has Force energy within it, called to Rey, and the way that she reacted to it when she touched the lightsaber, is unique to her and her alone.

Nobody else, not even Anakin, Luke or Obi Wan, has had a reaction like Rey has to the lightsaber. And in fact, it’s to do with her connection to the kyber crystal, not the lightsaber.

3. Rey + Force Vision

The vision that Rey experiences involves her hearing the voice of Obi Wan Kenobi, and unlike the other voices, what he says is new and most importantly, present. This is not a voice of the past, but a voice speaking directly to Rey.

“The ability to defy oblivion can be achieved, but only for oneself. It was accomplished by a Shaman of the Whills. It is a state acquired through compassion, not greed.“


So Qui Gon Jinn informs Yoda. He explains that he learned how to become a ‘Force Ghost’, a state of eternal consciousness, from a Shaman of the Whills.

The Whills were beings who had a close connection to the Force, and it is these beings who I think might possibly be the first known Force Sensitives in the galaxy.

I think Rey’s connection to the crystal [her force vision] equals to a connection to those who are in a state of eternal consciousness, because Kyber Crystals are connected to the Whills. ‘Whills’ in the earliest draft of the original SW film, according to George Lucas, was another word for the Force.

Kyber Crystal = eternal consciousness = Whills

So…. what does this prove?

It proves that Rey herself is actually a descendant or part of the Ancient Order of the Whills.

She is clearly a Force-sensitive, but perhaps her origins are neither from the light side or dark side, but from something infinitely more ancient….. It would explain a lot about that Force Vision, for if she was a ‘Whill’, then it would explain why the kyber crystal inside Anakin’s lightsaber called out to her, in a way that it hasn’t for any other Force Sensitive in the current films.

Perhaps she has the power to unlock other Force abilities from the crystals, and this is what Luke and herself are discovering, according to the rumours about some scenes in Episode VIII.

So?

Now, let’s look at the beginning of TLJ trailer.

We start with what we think are stars. Then the music changes as the shot transforms… from what we think are meaningless stars to…..

diamond-like stones, glinting off the screen….. surrounded by rock. They become more material and solid. I think this is deliberate.

then Rey’s hand connects to the glittering stones and we pan up to her shocked face.

This, is a visual description of her Force Back Vision in TFA.

The Kyber Crystal’s underneath the Achto Temple a.k.a. the Whills Temple, Rey connecting to it, as she did with the Skywalker crystal, and her shocked face, similar to her expression after experiencing the Force Back Vision due to her connection to the kyber crystal.

It’s clever, and if my theory is right, pretty meta.

in other words….

The Temple + Kyber Crystal + Force Back = The Whills = Rey

So hey? What do guys think? Is a load of rubbish or do you think this is a possibility? Let me know! :D

oh, and as for Kylo Ren?

im sure he ain’t happy with his cracked kyber crystal. What if he is after kyber crystals and not Luke Skywalker? He and Luke possibly found something out about the Whills and kyber crystals….

therefore he wants to get Rey because he saw her connection to the Skywalker crystal and wants to get knowledge over how to wield the kyber crystals true powers, such as force back visions? so far jedi have only managed to make lightsabers out of them, whereas Rey, a Whill?, is experiencing visions….

Flight plans

When Toby and Spencer found Mary Drake’s passport, it revealed that she flew from Heathrow (London) to Philadelphia one week before Charlotte’s release/murder.

The timing alone raises some questions, but what we can discern so far is that Mary came to town with some kind of plan involving Charlotte and Archer, and possibly others. Only Charlotte’s unexpected death threw everything off course.

What’s curious is if you go back to 6B and follow the trail of clues, even though it’s a bit convoluted, you’ll find that Melissa Hastings also flew from London to Philadelphia one week before Charlotte’s release. That’s no coincidence.

Now it makes sense why Melissa was being so cagey about telling anyone her flight details. 

OKAY FOLKS LETS TALK THEORY

okay so we got a new insta pic of evak and its all fun and games no big meaning behind it, right? well, maybe not! lets take a look at it

okay its just a cute boyfriend pic, great, but wait theres more! so we can see that even is in the background and also in the light BUT we cant see all of even, he is almost hiding out of frame so what if this is symbolizing the fact that isak does not see all of even, that part of even is missing, that even is hiding some part of himself from isak, hiding his past at bakka and with mikael. we can see a little of this in jonas’ post too

from isak’s point of view he can only see the profile of even, he is once again not seeing all of even. now, in both of these pictures, isak is only seeing one side of even - the right side. isak is always viewing evens ‘right’ side, not seeing the past even has, which may not be ‘right’

now, onto isak: in the new picture isak is in the shadow, in the dark of evens past, about mikael, about how sana fits into everything. isak is also facing away from even in the new picture, he doesnt want to face even about his past, hes turned away from him

we also know that after whatever happened at bakka, even probably got rid of all of his social media, but were only on the third week of the season and weve already seen him on instagram twice so its not unlikely that eventually mikael and the balloon squad will also see it and make the connection between even, isak, and sana (’you cant run from the internet gurl’)

now this is all just a theory, i could be reading way to far into this, i mean we know this season is not about isak and even, its about sana, and i dont want to pull attention away from her, but maybe this could come into play - isak and even, evens past with mikael and the balloon squad, how sana fits in, what she knows about it. none of this could be close to whats going to happen, but we know julie does everything for a reason, so maybe its a hint

A FEINT WITHIN A FEINT WITHIN A FEINT...

So I recently got a message from @lynnblacklist asking this question in regards to my “Red Is An Imposter” theory:

Could it be possible that OUR Red, the one we as an audience are familiar with, is the ACTUAL original Raymond Reddington and that Lizzie’s father stole HIS identity?  Basically, a flip on my idea that OUR Red took the identity of Lizzie’s father after she shot and killed him.

And so after thinking about it, I can’t see why not?

Correct me if I’m wrong @lynnblacklist, but what you’re basically saying is, OUR Red is the original Raymond Reddington, who had a wife and child.  He was a rising star in the Navy and was being groomed for Admiral… etc.  

Under unknown circumstances, without a definitive timeline, and for unknown reasons, Lizzie’s father took not only OUR Red’s identity, but the identity of his daughter as well, thus becoming Raymond Reddington and Masha becoming “Elizabeth.”  (This means that OUR Red’s daughter’s name was Elizabeth, just like I state in my imposter theory post).

At some point, OUR Red’s wife and daughter were killed on Christmas Eve, just like he told Madeline Pratt.  Could ‘they’ have killed OUR Red’s family to erase all evidence that another wife and daughter ever lived, thus making Masha the only ‘Elizabeth’ that now exists?

Remember, Lizzie’s father INSISTS on calling her “Elizabeth” in the fire flashbacks when Katerina comes for her and the Fulcrum.  And Katerina yells to Lizzie’s father (who is NOT Red) in the hallway while they’re fighting, “Raymond no!”

Is it possible that the man Katerina had an affair with wasn’t Raymond Reddington at all, but was just using that name as a cover?

IF this is all true, and Lizzie’s father stole OUR Red’s real identity, he basically DESTROYED it.  He stole the Fulcrum, had an affair with a KGB agent, had an illegitimate child (while cheating on his wife Carla), and became a national traitor.

Now, even if OUR Red could somehow manage to get his identity back, there’s nothing left to salvage of it.

Lizzie even surmises in 3.2:

I found it weird that she brought that up THEN of all times, when it had nothing to do with the conversation they were having at the time.

And Red told Lizzie in the Pilot:

I think ‘they’ may have even attempted to kill OUR Red as well in order to take his identity.

In “The Courier,” Red states that he died once in Marrakesh:

He tells the SAME STORY again in “Alexander Kirk, The Conclusion,”:

It always struck me as important that TPTB tell this same story twice from Red, like it’s important that we pick up on it.  Maybe this is why… 

Maybe ‘they’ THOUGHT they killed OUR Red in Marrakesh, while at the same time killing his wife and daughter, Elizabeth, back in the states.  Except Red survived the attack in Marrakesh, and came home just in time for Christmas.  He was so excited to be alive and back home, that he ran out of gas, and then came home to a “house of blood.”  

His attackers have, to the best of THEIR knowledge, now wiped out the original Reddington family, allowing Lizzie’s father and herself to take over the role of ‘Raymond’ and ‘Elizabeth.’

But little do they know, that Red survived… 

OUR Red then goes undercover to try to find out who is impersonating him and who killed his family, until everything comes to a head the night of the fire.  Lizzie’s dad dies, and Red finally manages to get his own identity back, which is now in complete shambles.  So he only has one course of action to follow - BECOME the very criminal Lizzie’s father inadvertently made him when he stole his identity in order to continue the cause.

Like Red tells Ressler in regards to him supposedly becoming a traitor to the US:

Or more importantly, who someone MADE us.

Is this what you’re getting at @lynnblacklist?  I don’t want to put words in your mouth, but this is what it sounded like you were saying.

If so, off the top of my head, I can’t see any reason why this couldn’t be correct as well.  It would still mean that either OUR Red or Lizzie’s father stole the other’s identity, and that Lizzie is still not OUR Red’s daughter.

And one last piece of “evidence” to back up this idea:

Liz tells Red in “Berlin, Part I” that she needs Red to get answers about her past.  And Red replies back that he needs her for the same reasons…

And brought to my attention by @elizared is this famous scene from “Wujing”:

At THIS question, Red visibly winces… ^^^

GREAT THINKING @elizared!!!

Also, IF this proves true, could that mean Red will ultimately use Lizzie to ge revenge on her parents?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Aaaahh!!! I think its overshadowing something! If I remember right!! Noe said Vanitas will be killed by him from 1st chapter! But what if Noe meant is Vanitas will die because of him?! Like Vanitas will protect him?! Instead of Noe himself killing Vanitas??? Then Noe probably blame himself for that? That’s why he said he killed Vanitas????

Just had a thought

When you think about who is on the A Team (potentially Lucas/Mona/Paige, Jenna, Noel etc), they all HATE Alison with a passion.

So that makes me think two things:
1. There is no way Alison could be A.D with the A Team full of people she hates
Or
2. She IS A.D and no one knows her identity, and the final “twist on a twist” is that she had all the people that loathe her working for her thinking they were attacking her 🤔
