Keegan says, “I know who A is, and so do you… it will be shocking and surprising.”
Troian and Ashley said during the Halloween special that they knew who A was.
By the time 5B was in swing, we heard that the rest of the cast knew who A was.
Marlene says that the actor who will plays “Charles” doesn’t know it yet. She also says we have seen this person face to face. She also says that Troian and Ashley are the ones that ask her to be A the most.
How can those two things be true? Someone has to be lying, right?
Maybe the cast knows the back story behind A only, and the relationship of how A fits in the show. (Twin, cousin, multi personality, etc)
Maybe the cast knew the name was Charles, and the back story. Wouldn’t knowing the back story make it much easier to deduce the likely cast member to be chosen? Ex. If Charles is one of the boys in the video, that narrows it down to an age range. If Charles is a twin to one of the parents, that narrows it down to an age range.
What if “Charles” isn’t A?
Charles could be a prisoner of as well, acting as A in order to keep distance from the girls. All the lights and music changes during the prom could have been done by remote, though letting Mona out of her room as well? Charles was pretending to be a mannequin- not moving much. Or was Mona waiting in the hallway the whole time?
If this is the case, my bet is on Paige as the prisoner, though you would think her parents would know she was missing. Unless Paige’s parents never asked her to move to CA, and they think she is still in Rosewood. She calls them to check in so they know nothing is wrong.
Or- what if A is protecting and caring for Charles, and brought the girls there to keep him company? If this is the case, it may leave more people open to be A.
EDITED TO ADD- it was pointed out that Marlene says Charles is A. If so, I don’t think we can know for sure that Charles is male. The liklihood is there, though the chest area of Charles seemed larger- either to indicate breasts or maybe a muscular type figure.
