Aria and Bethany twin theory
I see a lot of Bethany and Aria twin theories and last night I had a bit of a “Eureka!” moment and now I am almost 100% certain it is true.
Firstly I’d like to draw your attention to the “shocked faces” the girls are pulling when they see “Charles.” Notice the background:
Now take a look at the background of (presumably) the secret Carissimi room Spencer and Hanna walked by in 608.
What could be in this room? My guess is footage from that night and NAT videos. I say this because the person who leaked the reddit spoilers (huge spoilers, only click if you don’t mind) has said we will see “that night” (they have predicted a lot!) and it’s kind of inevitable we see it anyway. Mona also seems to be dealing with some hi-tec equipment whilst the girls are watching something too.
Someone who is undeniably shown in this footage is Bethany Young. It is likely the girls come face to face with Charles at prom, so their shocked faces whilst in the Carissimi building are probably for something else. We know promos mix up scenes usually too. The way they are standing and their reactions are simply not what I would expect from them after finally finding out who A is, you know? To me, it has to be something else.

We all joke about how Aria looks the least shocked. To me, she looks the most genuinely shocked; you can see the realisation settling in. She looks confused. Her reaction is extremely different to the others. WHY? My guess is whatever they see is personal to her…
SHE SEES HER IDENTICAL TWIN, BETHANY.
Now some evidence to back it up.
Eddie Lamb recognised Aria when she volunteered at Radley. Who do we know that was a patient at Radley somewhat recently? Bethany. Did he get the two mixed up? Or did he recognise her from when she visited as a child? He did know her name after all..
Aria and mirrors is a recurring theme in the show. Mirrors make two…
Two of Aria?
Marlene has said there is a reason we haven’t seen Bethany’s face yet, and I am betting on it being because she is identical to another character.
Maybe Aria’s trip to Iceland wasn’t random. We know they went
after Ali disappeared. Who else do we know that went missing that night?
Bethany! Maybe they got away to protect Aria from her disturbed twin…
