Ezra is AD and Big Bad of PLL - Season 2
This post is a continuation of other posts that offer evidence that Ezra is Uber A and Big Bad of PLL. This post deals solely with evidence from Season 2.
The Aria-Ezra-Jason love triangle:
What is more classic than a family rivalry over a girl? That scene at the dinner table is memorable. I’m thinking Ezra is also Mary Drake’s and was adopted to the Fitzgeralds. It’s very interesting if Ezra is A ..after Ali and Aria at the same time, while Jason tries to protect them both, in his own way.
Ezra also brought whiskey to the dinner at Aria’s which A is commonly seen drinking. Only a few characters at this point in the show are old enough to buy alcohol. Ezra is one of them.
Ezra’s Hollis diploma was seen in Dr. Sullivan’s office….A/Mona would’ve had to plant it. Who would have given Mona access to the diploma other than Ezra? Maybe Aria … but we all know how everyone feels about the Aria is A theories.
Jason tells Aria that Alison took the pictures of her she found, but Ali never mentions this nor do they explain. Who else would have intimate access to Aria to take pictures of her sleeping and plant them as Ali’s? Ezra. These same pictures are seen above A’s desk in a lair. Later on in season 6, Ezra mentions having a portrait of Aria above his desk. Maybe this was the one he was actually talking about.
Jason then has this photo framed and gives it to Aria as a gift.
Then A seems to viciously go after Jason. It would make sense if Ezra actually took these pictures and got jealous when Jason framed them for Aria. It would make perfect sense that Ezra would want to punish Jason for trying to take Aria away from him (hence the elevator shaft incident).
In “Eye of the Beholder,” we learn that Jenna was in Jason’s house when it exploded. However, Jason never asked Jenna to come over or was involved with her. It would make sense that Ezra would want to get back at Jason for trying to be with Aria and set his house on fire in revenge. After Aria’s parents forbid her to see Ezra - instead of doing the responsible thing and stay away from her - this obviously doesn’t stop him even though his feelings for her may or may not be real at this point.
Lolita, the book connected to Vivian Darkbloom, is about a teacher being sexually attracted to young girls. Aria looks like Vivian Darkbloom, Ali’s alter ego.
As soon as Jackie started getting into Ezra’s business again, he sent the liars to destroy her. Why would A care about Jackie unless it was someone close to him? Jackie tries to mess with Ezra’s relationship with Aria. This would ruin his “research” and her utility to him as a source of information if they broke up.
Ezra has a mask on at the ball but takes it off and kisses her publicly. The episode is called “unmasked.” Also: He now has his claws in deep and can control her at will.
