As we all know, 6x10 is coming up, and PLL has been throwing
us curve ball after curve ball and they’ve been throwing us the “Is Charles
dead/alive?” question at us since 6x01 began, and now I can finally tell you
with absolute certainty. Charles DiLaurentis is dead. Cece Drake is Red Coat.
Cece is endgame. I’m going to explain some things to you right now that is
going to make the twist in 6x10 100% worth it.
Mona flipped. Mona is winning the game. She’s playing both
sides and she’s the other black hoodie that was sitting with Red Coat. Mona is
going to expose Cece to us all and she’s going to do it for the liars and for
Alison. The ultimate character redemption.
Here’s the proof:
In 6x05 Spencer comes home with Dean, she sees Mona walking
towards the DiLaurentis mailbox with a card in hand, when Spencer asks what the
card was for, Mona said it’s for Alison. When Spencer starts talking Mona comes
back and looks uncomfortable
Later in the episode, Spencer and Hanna are digging around
Radley trying to find proof that Charles is dead- they suddenly hear a loud
noise and go to investigate… It was Mona, she was trying to sneak Lesli
Stone’s file out, but they catch her, they read Lesli’s file and say that Lesli
was in Radley long enough to not only know Mona, but she would’ve been in there
long enough to know Charles as well. Mona, whom went undetected as A for two
seasons, gets caught red handed with a document in hand and just hands it over
like a kid caught sneaking candy. She WANTED to get caught with Lesli Stone’s
file, she WANTED the liars to know that Lesli was in there long enough to know
Charles. And this, my friends is where the brilliance of the biggest plot twist
in television history begins.
Now, in 6x06 it opens with Mr. DiLaurentis finding a card on
the dash of his car- an invitation to Charles DiLaurentis’ birthday party.
Obviously, Kenneth freaks out and thinks his dead son is coming back and is out
to get him. But no, it was Mona.
Earlier in the episode, the girls become immediately
suspicious of Lesli, just as Mona had intended. The girls go after Lesli and
track down her car; inside of it, they find fake glasses and cases full of
mouse traps- that then lead them to a test facility… Where, you guessed it,
Miss Vanderwaal is waiting and ready for the liars to barge in and start asking
questions, questions that Mona is oh so eager to answer. She says that Lesli
told her that Charles escaped Radley Labor Day, the night Alison went missing
and the night Bethany was murdered.
Mona cooked up this entire plan for the girls to catch her
with Lesli’s file so they could see that Lesli was in Radley so long that she could
have known Charles, which is EXACTLY what she wanted. She tells them that Lesli
told her that Charles escaped Radley, and that the medical files could’ve
easily been faked- ergo, they believe Charles is IN FACT ALIVE.
6x06 ends with Kenneth DiLaurentis frantically
digging up what he thinks to be his sons grave (although we know Charles was
cremated from his files) and EVERYONE thinks Charles is alive and he is A.
Now, 6x07 I thought 6x07 totally got me and I thought
Charles was in fact alive… Then I thought about it, this person acquired every
piece of Charles that they could; I thought back to the soul room, about how
everything in it revolved around what seemed like someone they lost. Looking at
how they introduced the scene of the movie with Charles, Jason, and Alison, the
camera begins with the point of view through a DOLLHOUSE. They were referring
back to the dollhouse and the soul room, and then I realized… Mona figured it
out. She knows Cece loves Charles more than life itself, she doesn’t care why
she loved him, but she knows that’s where she’s going to hit her where it
hurts. THAT is Cece’s weakness, and THAT is how she’s going to bring her down.
I noticed also that the present didn’t have a “To Charles” on it, that present isn’t
to Charles at all, it’s to someone who loved and wants to remember him. It’s also worth mentioning that “Charles” aka Mona, didn’t hurt anyone when she met them at the arcade, she just wants the right moment to expose everything…
Now, finally we get to 6x08 and 6x09… It’s finally revealed
that red coat and someone else is working for her on the A team, everyone
thinks this is Charles but really, it’s Mona. And here’s where I’m going to
start to blend 6x08 and 6x09 together because now that we got some of the
photos from Prom for the next episode, I think we may have figured EXACTLY how
this is going to go down and who is doing what. So, lately everyone has been
freaking out about this Justin Fix guy, and this is where the tuxedo from the
ending of 6x08 comes into play… Justin (and whoever his name may be in the
episode) is going to be a total and complete decoy for Alison and the liars,
they hired this guy to make Alison think he’s Charles but really it’s a trap.
Meanwhile there are TWO RED COATS at the dance, one is real and the other is
Mona, just like the Halloween train where Mona was one of the Phantoms and
Caleb was the other, Mona is the decoy A and Cece is the REAL A.
This one below is Mona, you can tell from the height difference and the hands…
This is where everything is going to happen. Alison is going
to think Justin Fix is Charles and then Mona is going to kidnap Ali, she’s then
going to tell Ali about Cece and she’s going to chase red coat to Radley… There
she will learn that Cece is in fact the endgame, that she is A, that Charles is
dead. Mona is going to then round up the liars and go to the Carissimi group
(the corporation Cece built to basically spy on the liars) and there she will
show the liars the cameras Cece has places and show the liars the moment Alison
unmasks Cece as A. The cops will then surround Cece after her reveal, the liars
and Mona will probably race to Radley as everything starts to crumble and Cece
will then run to the roof and jump.
The A game is over.
I have to thank my brother in arms and in theories, Nick for
helping with this beautiful brain-child, after this is over I have no idea what
we’re gonna do with our time. It’s been a pleasure theorizing with you. <3
If you want to talk theories with me, or just want to drop by and say hi, you can follow me on twitter @RWatkinsphoto
And of course, if you want to freshen up on my Cece is A theory, here it is:
Evidently the band is not being introduced at some OTRA shows which is bullshit such as Kansas City and San Diego. Not sure if this part of the show has been permanently scrapped or if they just skip it to save time on some shows, but I think this part of the show needs to be brought back, stat.
Also, it’s easy to tweet individual musicians and tell them that you appreciate them and their contribution to the show. You can tweet Dan Richards (guitarist), Josh Devine (drummer), Sandy Beales (bassist) and Jon Shone (keyboardist). They will be glad to hear from you! If you know of other musicians that work on the tour that I haven’t mentioned, please add them.
We all can get very wrapped up in the off-stage dramas, but really, without the music, there would be no 1D. So let’s please recognize the musicians, even if the band does not.
