PLL THEORY: SARA’S FRIEND AVERY... IS UBER A/SPENCER’S TWIN?!
In 4x14 (”Who’s in the Box?”), Hanna and Emily go to meet Sara Harvey’s two friends, Claire and Tina. They’re both literally the reflections of Hanna and Emily. Sara is Alison’s, but Aria doesn’t seem to have one. On the other hand, Sara’s other friend called Avery seems to be Spencer’s parallel.
Claire mentioned that Avery thinks Sara “is still out there with amnesia or something.” This seems strange to me for some reason. She is noted as the only one who thinks Sara is still alive. Tina says that Avery couldn’t make it as she “had to do something”. Why was this necessary? Why couldn’t they have gotten a third actress to play Avery? Why mention she “had to do something”?
Tina says Avery is the one who last saw Sara “riding her bike” the day after Labor Day. She then says they found the bike but not Sara. Avery is being mentioned quite a lot by these two. I have theorized before that Avery Drake is A.D. and that she is Bethany Young, as well as Spencer’s identical twin sister. Why couldn’t they have shown Avery to us? She’s supposedly Spencer’s parallel. The reason why? She is her TWIN!
We know Sara ran off and joined the A-Team, becoming Charlotte’s helper and decoy. It’s funny how Avery was the only one to see Sara last. Sara told Emily in 6x02 (”Songs of Innocence”) that she was in a parking lot with her bike, and she either was “hit on the head” or “hit her head”. This is what draws me in. From another previous theory, I also theorized Avery/Spencer’s twin was the true Black Widow. Charlotte wanted to hide Avery’s identity, and so did Sara because Avery was her friend. They wanted to protect her, so Sara claimed the identity of the BW.
Avery was clearly adopted by the Young family in Courtland (where Sara and her friends lived), and this is where she was brought up. She claimed to have been the last to see Sara because she knew Sara was now on the A-Team. Avery was the reason Sara disappeared.
Spencer’s twin is A. Whether her name is “Avery Drake” or “Bethany Young” or whatever, she’s the Big Bad.
I think that she grew up in Radley and that is why Wren knows about her. I think that Mary knows what’s going on, and wanted to save both of her daughters which is why she confessed to everything.
I think that Wren is going to use the gun on AD, and try and stop them from hurting the girls, ultimately not being able to step aside any longer.
I think that it was AD who came to see Toby and I think that he is also going to come to the rescue, once he processes that who met with him isn’t Spencer. I think that when she said “Remember that kiss we shared” he’s going to have a lightbulb go off in his head and realize those kisses felt different to him. Or, he’s going to come talk to Spencer about that night they shared and she’s going to be like “…what night?”
I think Mona is going to realize who AD is first, and that was her dropping the snow globe in the asylum.
I have toyed with the idea that Spencer is somehow locked up in an insane asylum somewhere. I also toyed with the thought that the two girls got switched when she went into Radley for that time period. I don’t know how this would work though, because that would have to mean that Spencer hasn’t really been Spencer since high school, and I think that might have been too early on. So that might just be a crack theory.
Again, I don’t think Wren is bad. And I think he was trying to stop AD in the airport from doing what she was doing.
I think her motive is jealousy that Spencer got to live a normal life while she was forced to grow up in Radley. I think that she knew Charlotte from the time they both spent in there.
The one (of a million) plot holes though is…why hasn’t someone said something about where Spencer may have been at a certain point and she hasn’t gone like, “Wait, I wasn’t there I didn’t do that” yet? Maybe AD is just that good? I don’t know fuck this show.
I think Melissa knows about AD and that’s going to come into play in the finale. Like she knows Spencer has a twin, Wren told her.
But I STFG, if the ending is that Hannah’s Mom is A, or everything was a dream, or the show ends on a cliff hanger and they get a text from Super Extra Uber A, I’m going to throw my TV out a 12 story building, hunt Marlene down, punch her in the boob, then check MYSELF into an insane asylum for watching this garbage bag of a show for 6 years too long.
At least this way, they are honoring the EPIC story that was told in the books.
God Bless us all, good luck to you tomorrow night.

“There was something deceptively peaceful about the scene. Water flowed around the girl in a serene dark sheet, making it seem that she was merely resting. The tendrils of her hair framed her face in a soft cloud. The folds of her dress clung determinedly to her legs, as if to protect her from the predawn chill. But the girl would never feel cold again.
Her arm was outstretched, as though she were reaching for someone she loved, or maybe to ward off some unspoken danger, or maybe even in regret over something she had done. The girl had certainly made enough mistakes in her too-short lifetime. But she couldn’t have known that they would all come crashing down around her tonight.
After all, no one goes to a party expecting to die.”
