This is one complicated web we call the Hastings/DiLaurentis/Drake Family Tree!

We thought we’d make this in case anyone was confused or needed it for their theories!

Things that we just really really didn’t need in PLL


Ezra’s random non-son Malcolm


Making aria cheat and hookup with everyone 


Spencer & Caleb hookup 


Completely changing Alison just because Sasha put on a bit of weight (she still could’ve worn ‘Ali’ clothes)


The 150000 irrelevant characters that were made to look suspicious


Killing every second person for no fraking reason except ‘shock’ factor


Telling us stuff in interviews instead of the ACTUAL SHOW


Predictable & clearly just made for shock factor or to ‘please’ the fans storylines


The existence of Ravenswood & a ‘supernatural’ element


The police not being able to correctly identify an effing body


Making all of the girls hookup with people randomly, like why can’t they be strong independent women? THEY WERE STRONG ENOUGH TO ENDURE -A THEY CAN HANDLE BEING SINGLE.




ALLLLLLL of the red herrings, just useless


Red herrings AGAIN because they used them so much

Things I am 90% convinced will happen in PLL soon (PART 2)

I decided to make an updated part 2 of this since part 1 got such a lovely response. I would love to hear about your predictions about the end of the show!

1. There is another child of Mary’s we will find out about.

2. Melissa will be revealed as Charlotte’s killer and Noel will be revealed as Sara’s killer.

3. Ezra will be one of the betrayals promised to us in the finale. I simply don’t believe that he needed a lair and cameras for just “research” for his book. He was never just writing a book.

4.Not knowing what Bethany looks like is important. She will be revealed as an identical twin of somebody we know.

5. A.D. has been the real A since season 1 but Charlotte took the fall in 6x10 to keep their identity a secret.

6. Sara Harvey was not the real black widow. Black widow is Alison or Bethany. @uberaalison post brilliantly explains how it had to be someone who had to wear a mask behind a veil.

To quote, “Why would Sara need to disguise herself to get into Wilden’s funeral? It’s not like anyone in Rosewood knew who she was or would have recognized her without the veil. Black Widow needs to be someone who couldn’t be at the funeral without a disguise.” Only Alison or Bethany (and possibly Mary Drake since nobody knew of Jessica’s twin at the time and seeing two Jessicas would freak people out) fit that description to me as they were both thought to be dead.

7.The body in the barrel was not a random one. They hyped up that reveal way too much with the hashtag #whatsinthebarrel. Eddie Lamb’ s body was in there and we will find that out soon.

8. Bethany Young is either a Dilaurentis or a Drake. Bethany was not her birth name.

9. This is a pretty big statement (and it is not without plot holes) but to me nothing else will make 100% sense given the behaviour of this character throughout all seven seasons.

This is not Vanessa. You can clearly tell they used Sasha for this shot. Why? They could have easily used someone in a blonde wig, the way they have used random people in scenes with A before. So my final prediction is that A.D. is, and stands for, Alison Dilaurentis. She is the final betrayal of the show.


what if the reason why lucas and charles connected at camp and became friends was because lucas could relate to charles vice versa, because maybe the rumors were true about lucas as ali once said “ i hear he has both female and male parts” ( she says something like this) aka hermie. now remember ali was at a camp too, i think ali couldve been at this same camp, hence some of the activities were for ARCHERY,as seen in the pic of lucas and charles. remember alis archery award that her “bunk mate” won for her? was ali pretending to be a boy (hence the tomboy pic of ali mar posted) just so she could be apart of this camp? i think ted said it was a camp for boys. who was alis bunk mate?? we still dont know this information. so what if ali heard those rumors at camp about lucas? this could be why lucas and charles hit it off because they knew they were both different.

1) Sei un tossico (telefilm)dipendente: Eri consapevole di star iniziando, ora non sei più consapevole di quando smetterai.
2) Hai imparato a conoscere bene le persone prima di giudicarle; Tutti odiavamo Ali, all'inizio.
3) Durante l'inverno, non camminerai più tranquillo per le vie della tua città: sarai circondato da gente incappucciata con indosso un Woolrich rosso!
4) Potranno passare anche solo pochi giorni senza che tu possa incontrare i tuoi amici, ma appena vi vedrete, la tentazione di esclamare un accattivante “Did you miss me?” sarà troppo forte.
5) Non ti fidi più di nessuno, sospetti di tutti
6) Sospetti anche del tuo shampoo
7) Perchè “Riesci sempre a cavartela con una bugia detta bene”. Ora sai mentire perfettamente!
8) Hai bisogno di vedere per credere

13) Perchè “Basta! Tutto questo è assurdo! Da oggi non lo guardo più!” ma nel profondo di te stesso sai che non è vero
14) Perchè infondo Pretty Little Liars ti entra nel cuore


So I was looking up some things about Patsy Cline since Marlene King has now referenced her multiple times. In my research, here are a few photos of things that stood out to me in regards to its relevance to PLL. 

Photo #1: Patsy Cline was married to a man named CHARLES who she also called “Charlie” as Jason does in the show. Her husband, Charles, was also a LINOTYPE operator. For those who may not know what a Linotype Operator is, it’s basically someone who operates a machine that sizes the type for newspapers and things like that (could this be a reference to Ezra?) She also considered Charles to be “the love of her life”. Marlene has been talking about how the entire show is, all in all, a love story amongst everything else. Maybe whoever A.D. is was in love with Charles and something happened to him (as many of us have speculated). It seems that there was also abuse involved? Take from that what you will. Possibly coincides with the story Ali told about Cyrus? 

Photo #2: Patsy Cline was MARRIED to someone else while she was first seeing Charles. He was described as a “ladies man” with “raw charm” and “persistent”. Maybe this is a clue that Charles is someone who has had an affair or is particularly charming and well adored at least for his looks and charm. 

Photo #3: Patsy Cline was involved in a very serious car crash where the other driver was killed. What’s interesting is that she was THROWN INTO THE WINDSHIELD (much like Rollins was?) And her friend PICKED GLASS OUT OF HER HAIR (remember Hanna picking the glass right out of her scalp after the accident?). What is also notable is how Cline saw the female driver of the other car DIE BEFORE HER EYES– Just like Hanna sees Rollins die before her eyes–like literally right in front of her face. She later had a SCAR on her forehead (there have been soooo many references to scars–the one on Alison’s thigh, bethany’s face possibly being disfigured, the twin story, scars on Hanna’s back, etc.) She oftentimes had to hide the ugliness of her scar with WIGS and makeup. Sounds kind of like it could be related to A, doesn’t it?

Photo #4: I think what is probably most interesting of all, was that Pasty Cline had the words “Death Cannot Kill What Never Dies: Love” written on her tombstone. Sounds like something Alison or someone like her would have written on her grave. I 100% believe that this line explains the motivation of A.D. – LOVE. Again, Marlene has stated that this is, above all else, a love story. A.D.’s motivation has to be out of love for someone. Could be in response to the death of someone they love. Could be to protect someone they love. But it is more likely than anything else related to the death of someone they cared about, someone they cannot let go of, someone they believe that death cannot separate them. This is vengeance. Over all, a BELL TOWER was erected in the cemetery in her memory. That’s right– A BELL. FUCKING. TOWER. YES. The place in the show we have seen time and time again. The place where multiple deaths have taken place (Ian, Charlotte, Hanna’s dummy). These can’t be coincidences! All of these pieces have to go together. 

Let me know what you guys think about what I found and the comparisons. Maybe someone can create a coherent theory based on this information. Hope this helps you all in your endeavors to get to the punchline before the show (even though we all have time and time again). Happy theorizing!

Pretty Little Chess Game

There are many game analogies in Pretty Little Liars. The torture of the girls by A is known as the A Game. When Marlene talks about the show she refers to Endgame frequently. It is evident that A views his/her psychological torture of the liars as a game. 

There have been many instances where A, as well as other characters, have referenced a game

When CeCe reveals herself as A (although I don’t think she was A, but was taking the fall for someone else) she says, “Game Over.

Have you ever noticed that a chess board is prominently displayed on the table in Ezra’s apartment? 

Aria and Ezra play chess in 5x04 and a few episodes later Spencer gets a text from A that says “Check mate.”

We know A likes games, there were several in the Dollhouse playroom.

Chess pieces in order of strength/value:

  • 1 King
  • 1 Queen
  • 2 Rooks/Castles
  • 2 Bishops
  • 2 Knights
  • 8 Pawns


In chess, the king is the most important piece. The object of the game is to threaten the opponent’s king in such a way that escape is not possible (checkmate). If a player’s king is threatened with capture, it is in check and the player must remove the threat of capture on the next move. If this cannot be done, the king is said to be in checkmate, resulting in a loss for that player. 

I don’t believe that Mona or CeCe was ever Uber A/A.D.  Their King was in check so they took the fall by taking the King out of check. How did they do that? Mona said she was A and was admitted to Radley and CeCe said she was A and was admitted to Welby. 

In both of these instances, the cops stopped looking for A, because they thought there was no longer a threat. In order for the game to continue, they sacrificed themselves to protect the King.

So who is the King? = A.D / Uber A. 

  • I believe this has been the same person throughout the entire show. 
  • The two people I believe could be represented as the King are:
  • Wren Kingston
    • King is in his name
  • Ezra Fitz
    • The chess board is in is apartment
    • He was spying on the girls for YEARS (I have written in great lengths about why I think Ezra is A in other posts so I am not going into details here)
  • Charles wore a tuxedo in the Dollhouse. Uber A is a MAN. If it was CeCe, who claims she always wanted to be a girl, she would not have dressed as a man.

In chess, although the king is the most important piece, it is usually the weakest piece in the game until a later phase, the endgame. Players cannot make any move that places the king in check.

A is the most important, but because he needs to protect his identity at all costs, he is the weakest.


The queen is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Each player starts the game with one queen, placed next to the king. Because of the value of a queen, it is sometimes used as bait to lure an opponent into a trap by a queen sacrifice. Another tactic is to use the queen to threaten the opponent’s queen, to either retreat or to exchange the queen (losing both of them) to reduce the game to less powerful pieces. The queen is often used in conjunction with another piece, such as teamed with a bishop or rook, where the pieces could guard each other while threatening the opponent pieces.

So who is the Queen? = Red Coat

  • The Queen is the King’s right hand 
  • The two people I believe could be represented as the Queen are:
    • Melissa Hastings (if the King is Wren)

She is Red Coat, Wren was coloring a picture of her. This is his dream of his future family.

I think she was the one in the Queen of Hearts costume

And she is most likely Black Veil/Widow ((Her husband Ian died, she is actually a widow))

    • But my #1 pick for the Queen is Aria Montgomery (if the King is Ezra)

We have seen Aria in a Red Coat:

The Queen is the most powerful piece because it can move anywhere on the board. Aria is fooling everyone by making herself look like a victim. But in fact she is the Queen. The analogy can be used that Aria can “move anywhere on the board” because she is best friends with the Liars and always knows what they are planning/thinking. She has infiltrated the ‘enemy.’ She can see everything first hand, go anywhere and it won’t look suspicious, because the Liars think she is on their side.

In chess, one team has White pieces, and the other has Black pieces. For this situation, Ezra and Aria are the evil black pieces (A), and Ali & the Liars are the good white pieces (B).

Ezra is using his Queen, Aria, to threaten the opponents Queen, Ali.

Aria is Queen A 

Ali is Queen B

Look at this A message to Ali that was written in the newspaper:

Aria can be seen as the Black -evil- Queen (A), while Ali can be seen as the White -good- Queen, (B). 

In the Christmas episode, when Mona is ‘murdered,’ Marlene tweeted:

In Chess, sometimes the Queen is sacrificed. Ezra wanted the White Queen Ali in the Dollhouse, but he decided to settle for Mona. He had Mona dress up as Ali and pretend to be her in the Dollhouse.

Mona is the newborn white PROM queen

Meanwhile, what is our Evil Queen Aria wearing?



Castling is an important goal in Chess, because it serves two valuable purposes: it moves the king into a safer position away from the center of the board, and it moves the rook to a more active position in the center of the board. There are 2 Rooks.

Who are the Rooks? = CeCe Drake & Mona Vanderwaal

As I explained earlier, they both took the fall to protect the King. 

Mona pretended to be A to and was put into Radley and CeCe pretended to be Charles and was institutionalized into Welby for 5 years. 


Each player begins the game with two bishops. One starts between the king’s knight and the king, the other between the queen’s knight and the queen. The bishop has no restrictions in distance for each move, but is limited to diagonal movement. Bishops, like all other pieces except the knight, cannot jump over other pieces. A bishop captures by occupying the square on which an enemy piece sits. As a consequence of its diagonal movement, each bishop always remains on either the white or black squares, and so it is also common to refer to them as light-squared or dark-squared bishops.

Who are the Bishops? = Jenna Marshall & Noel Kahn

While they aren’t as powerful in the A Game as the others, they have significant roles. 

Noel and Jenna are working together.

  • Him and Mona dated and worked together
  • It’s possible he murdered Sara Harvey
  • Maya was last seen at his Lake House
  • He has snooped on the Liars many times
  • Is possibly Varjack
  • Noel helped psychologically torture the girls in the Dollhouse
  • He had Mary’s Radley file in a lockbox in the hotel.

Jenna has plenty of reasons to hate the Liars and work against them

  • They blinded her by throwing the smoke bomb into her shed
  • Ali blackmailed her with her knowledge of Jenna and Toby’s weird relationship
  • Had something to do with the Cabin Fire
  • She was working with CeCe and Archer in Welby


A knight is resented by a horse’s head and neck. Each player starts with two knights. The knight move is unusual among chess pieces. When it moves, it can move to a square that is two squares horizontally and one square vertically, or two squares vertically and one square horizontally. The complete move therefore looks like the letter L. Unlike all other standard chess pieces, the knight can ‘jump over’ all other pieces (of either color) to its destination square. A knight should always be close to where the action is, meaning it is best used on areas of the board where the opponent’s pieces are clustered or close together.

It is interesting to note that the finale of Season 7 next week is titled “The Darkest Knight.”

Who are the Knights? = Lucas Gottesman and Darren Wilden

We know Lucas has been part of the game. 

  • Ali bullied him constantly, calling him Hermie.
  • He was the one wearing the gloves who gave Emily the massage.
  • Emily and Hanna are conveniently living in his ‘smart’ apartment. 

There was always something up with Darren Wilden

  • He was on the Halloween train dressed as the second Queen of Hearts
  • He was always hounding the girls for information on Ali. He really wanted to find her, and I think it is because he was working for A.
  • He had a connection with CeCe


The pawn is the most numerous piece in the game of chess, and in most circumstances, also the weakest. Unlike the other pieces, pawns may not move backwards. Normally a pawn moves by advancing a single square, but the first time a pawn is moved, it has the option of advancing two squares. Pawns may not use the initial two-square advance to jump over an occupied square, or to capture. Any piece directly in front of a pawn, friend or foe, blocks its advance.

Who are the White (good) Pawns? Emily, Spencer, Hannah, Caleb, & Toby, with Ali as the White Queen B.

This next pic is hard to see. It says: “Once you know what someone cares about it’s easy to beat them, to separate them. Just like in chess. I lure each one and I isolate each of them, and knock them off the board. I’m almost grateful that Mona so unwittingly attempted to play me, because now all the pieces are mine. And when I crush them, and I will, that’s checkmate for all of them.”


Absolute favorite theory I have written!!!  Thanks for reading! xox
