When Spencer and Aria spoke to Doctor Cochran, it takes us into a flashback that shows Mary’s second child (who is covered in a blue blanket) being taken away by a man. BUT, when the man then delivers the baby to Veronica Hastings, it is now in a white blanket? Is this a clue, or a mistake?
ALSO, Dr. Cochran says that after the baby was born that the baby was taken away or given to family services. The flashback in 7x11 almost completely ignores this, as the same man who took the baby in the 7x08 is the same man who gives Veronica the baby in 7x11.
I have to say before we begin that I’m sorry for what you’re about to read ahead of time. The moment this idea popped into my head, I literally couldn’t think of anything else.
So, who’s the sperm donor for the Emison baby (well, babies)? Well… Technically… Charlotte.
It’s entirely possible that before Charlotte transitioned from Charles that she froze her sperm in case she wanted biological children in the future. I’ve read multiple articles from trans women who froze their sperm as they were transitioning for this very reason, so it just may be plausible that technically speaking Charlotte is the missing link in the chain here.
And if I am correct with Mary being A.D. and doing this… It would give an entirely new meaning as to why she’s doing it. She lost her daughter Charlotte, she lost Bethany (whom she saw as a daughter), so what better way to have a fresh start than to have a child (or *cough* twins) and take back what you felt was taken from you?
This would make the child biologically connected to the Drake and DiLaurentis family while making Alison the second cousin to the children.
I kept asking myself “Why would they make Alison pregnant?” There had to be some underlying reason for what A.D. wants and does, and I think this is it. A new start.
casual reminder that over a period of 3 years tim drake dealt with a shitton of psychological trauma and PTSD and didn’t get any help from anyone because of bruce’s unspoken ideals about how emotion shouldn’t get in the way of work so tim repressed all of his multitudes of issues surrounding the death of all of his loved ones and being left (by bruce) responsible for an entire city at the age of 14 before having to hang up the cowl because his dad found out and then had to deal with his father dying because he was robin.
and then right after he let bruce adopt him, damian came into the picture and tried to kill him, before saying that he would never be bruce’s true son
not to mention that just when tim started to actually process his grief (2 years later) and talk to people about his ptsd three out of the four people he loved came back from the dead and he found out his girlfriend lied about being dead and two of his best friends came back during a battle in which his mentor was killed.
and then directly after that dick, the person he trusted more than anyone, basically ended his career as robin because damian needed it more, so he lost his entire support system when he needed it most and went on a self-flagellating mission to prove bruce wasn’t dead and no one believed him
and then once tim FINALLY started getting better after bruce came back, the fuckig universe RESET itself so he got!!! no catharsis whatsoever!! and the n52 butchered his character!!!!!!!
tl;dr i love tim drake a lot and dc treated him like SHIT in the n52 and people don’t appreciate his character enough
