alison's body

Did You Miss Me?

This theory is going to work against most of my ‘A’ or ‘A.D’ theories but…. I think that Alison Lauren DiLaurentis might be ‘A’ this time. (or ‘A’ all of the time)

————————————————————————————–

Since the summer finale I can’t stop thinking about how Spencer literally risked her life for Ali and how she has ALWAYS protected her. In every scene that ‘A’ has targeted Ali and the Liars together, Spencer stands in front with her arms and body shielding Alison. It’s her natural instinct. 

Funny enough, it’s actually all of the Liars natural instinct, to protect Ali before themselves. Why is that? Because Alison conditioned them to protect her at all costs. 

She knew that if she was ever in danger and asked for their help that they would run to her rescue. Even if she were crying wolf… even if she were lying… 

And ever since then (with the exception of when they let her get arrested for Mona’s murder) they have never once let Ali down. She ensured that. She played them like they were dolls… or puppets. Just like ‘A’. 


Ali’s puppets. 


A’s dollhouse.

Why didn’t ‘A’ capture Alison if she is their favorite doll? Is Alison the ultimate puppet-master? 

Jenna even gives the audience a little foreshadowing before the doll house and reminds us all that the Liars have always been Alison’s puppets. 

“Like they were her dolls…”


“We’re coming full-circle on this show.” -Marlene King

Back in the pilot episode after Aria gets the very first ‘A’ message she automatically assumes it’s Ali. And she’s not the only one..

In fact, Emily and Aria both admit to each other that they think ‘A’ is Ali. How could it be anybody else, right? Alison is the only one they told their secrets to. “Friends share secrets, it’s what keeps us close.”


It’s been right in front of us this whole time and we chose to not see it. We chose to see Alison as a victim based off of what we have learned about her and her family, but that doesn’t excuse her actions. It doesn’t change her past.

The Liars only dismissed Alison as an ‘A’ suspect after the police found her “remains” buried in her backyard. It was a perfectly well thought out plan, don’t you think? ‘A’ sends the Liars their first message and then Alison’s body is mysteriously found and she’s declared dead, making her appear as a victim rather than a suspect. Classic ‘A’ move. Classic chess move. Check.

Alison being ‘A’ would make things come full-circle.

It would tie the Liars into the plot and it would explain how ‘A’ has always been one step ahead. Alison knows the Liars better than they know themselves and it wouldn’t have been hard for her to anticipate their next move. She is who the Liars thought was ‘A’ in the very beginning and how ironic that ‘A’ now goes by ‘A.D’, Alison’s initials. 

This show is centered around Alison. 

All roads lead back to the DiLaurentis house.

All roads lead back to Ali.

Wilden is Charles, and needed to disappear.

Just like everyone thought the dead girls body was Alison’s, Wilden decided to use this method and fake his death. He killed a man that had a similar body type to him and then put a Wilden mask over the face. We know there is a super realistic Wilden mask, that Elliot wore later in the show.

CeCe sent Sara (one of whom is definitely Bethany) to Wilden’s funeral, NOT to see if Wilden was really dead, but TO SEE IF EVERYONE BELIEVED THAT THE MASKED PERSON IN THE COFFIN WAS WILDEN. 

Just a thought that turned into a theory

If Mona accidentally killed Bethany thinking it was Alison, how did Bethany end up wearing Alison’s bracelet, which the police used to identify the body as Alison? Did Mona ‘accidentally’ slip the bracelet on Bethany’s wrist as well? Plus, why was Cece dressed in a black hoodie and black trousers like ‘A’ when she hit Bethany, when she had no idea that the ‘A’ game even existed? I believe that the whole story about what happened that night was a lie. Mona and Cece were forced to cover up for someone. That person being Aria.

The reason Bethany ended up in Alison’s backyard dressed like that was because somebody wanted her to be there, i.e. Aria. The plan was never to kill Alison. That would be too easy. Aria and Mona wanted to make her suffer. So, Aria got Bethany wound up about Alison, driving her to kill her. Mrs DiLaurentis was distraught that Bethany had done this and she buried Alison in her backyard, not being able to bring herself to dob Bethany into the police.

Alison was then saved by Mrs Grunwald and Mona picked her up near the woods, conveniently convincing her to run away. Meanwhile, Aria hit Bethany over the head to kill her, because there was no way that she could trust Bethany to keep the whole thing a secret. She then put Alison’s bracelet/a copy of it on Bethany’s wrist and watched Melissa bury her. She then went back to the barn and pretended to be asleep, so the girls could discover that Alison was missing.

No one apart from the Radley staff would have noticed Bethany going missing, so Aria had nothing to worry about. A year later Bethany’s body is identified as Alison, which is exactly what Aria and Mona wanted. But what they weren’t relying on of course was Alison to come back, having survived for almost two years on her own. So what did Aria do? Double crossed Mona into faking her own death and then got Alison put into jail.

What about Charlotte? Well, if Cece really was/is Charlotte and isn’t impersonating her, then Aria and Mona just used her to get what they wanted. Charlotte was vulnerable, so Aria used her, while helping her to build the Dollhouse, which once Alison was brought in was supposed to be a permanent prison for Spencer, Hanna, Emily and Mona to be tortured, while Cece got her sister back. Aria would then walk away without a scratch having got everything that she wanted.

But that didn’t work, because Alison, Ezra and Toby found the lair and called the police. But Aria had a backup plan. She left clues to Charles hidden around the Dollhouse, knowing that Spencer would pick up on it. Then, Charlotte was tricked into thinking that she was entirely responsible for what happened to the girls and gave herself up. She was a cover up ‘A’, just like Mona. Charlotte was then put into a mental hospital and Aria, Mona and the girls all went off their separate ways.

However, five years later Charlotte gets released, which Aria hadn’t considered at all. At the court meeting, Aria does the best she can to get Charlotte to remain there, but it doesn’t work. So, she helps someone to dispose of her. Then to make sure that everyone knows their place, she gets Mona fired from her job too. She puts herself back in control and then tricks ‘Uber Bad’ into thinking that she’s helping them when really she assisted Charlotte’s death. That is presuming that Charlotte really is dead.

So the cycle starts again, but then in 6x20 (hopefully *crosses fingers*) we find out that Charlotte wasn’t really to blame for what happened with the ‘A’ game. Which leaves us with the same old mystery. Who hit Alison and who hit Bethany? Who is ‘A’? And why did they do what they did? Then it’s only a matter of time before the girls close in on Aria and she confesses to everything. Then it either ends there or in an alternate reality with Aria sat in Radley, writing the whole of PLL. I just hope that Sara Harvey isn’t the one with the twin. It should be one of the liars. That would make a great twist.

If and i mean if the writers aren’t bsing us and we get an Emison sex scene, i want it to go all out. I want this moment to be on freaking Ezria’s level. They are GROWN now so I better be seeing some GROWN things. They keep advertising that the channel is now “FreeForm” every 2 seconds so they better prove it. If we can watch Spaleb basically do softcore porn, SOMEBODY better be going down on SOMEONE when it’s emison’s moment
