ella and byron montgomery


So in previous theories ive made several theories connecting the montgomery family to bethany, a new clue i came upon is quite telling. In the ep 6x17 hanna is helping ella out with her wedding dress and theme etc, ella tells us a little about her and byron:

hmm so ella and byron rented a barn to get married in? now barns have been a huge clue in this show, barns are associated with farms, we got the camplbell farm, we got spencers barn, the barn that emily passed out in, now a barn that ella n byron got married at. now remember this drawing:

many of us have already in the past pondered whether ella was the woman in this drawing and it still looks like it could be ella, now given this new information, this could very well be bethany drawing, i found it interesting she said they basically dressed up as “cowhands” now heres the definiton:

“cow·handˈkouhand/nounplural noun: cowhands is a person employed to tend or ranch cattle; a cowboy or cowgirl.”

in the drawing we see cows ,and we also see horse. now this brings me back to this scene:

i found this really interesting a cow tongue? hmm why is that aria from the start, has been associated with farm animals the most? we got pigtunia as if aria grew up on farm possibly, and byron got her the pig to remind of her of her childhood. look at all the A clues dealing with pigs, then we have horse connections with aria as well, i remember when ezra a said he would buy aria pony or something to that degree.

Now speaking of horses, this brings me back to who was really the lady in the big beige purse?

now this scene with ella and her big beige purse was in the same episode where ronda tells us about the lady in the big beige purse taking bethany out of radley. now think about it. if it is indeed the montgormery family in that drawing, what if bethany was apart of that family? what if byron is the father of bethany, and ella was taking bethany out of radley on trips? jsut a thought, is it really a coincidence that we see ella with a big beige purse in the same ep that ronda talks about the rich lady in the big bige purse? was ella in disguise?

Now, heres more connections to bethany from the Montgomery family, we all remember this, when eddie recognized aria from radley, why was aria so fixed on the bethany situation, why was she so determined to be the main one to get info on bethany? what does aria know about bethany? also to throw in there the twin looking picture in byrons family photo album which is still weird, could it be bethany and aria?

then we have this drawing, what if this was aria and bethany when the seperation happened

another bethany/montgromery connection, so apparently melissa buried bethany, now i still find it a little strange that on “that night” in th flashback, byron is talking to ali, when hes about to walk away, he turns around and sees melissa cmoing out of the door, n then he glares as if it was odd to see melissa , nowi still find this strange why the writers felt the need to shwo us that byron saw melissa and made that glare at the sight of her

now remember this weird scene where meredith tells byron:

what was meredith about to say, “that you…” that byron what? what else did byron do that night?  did byron have something to do with bethanys murder? lets think about it, when byron goes to the basement and sees scared aria he tells her i didnt hurt alison… but byron seemed like that was his intentions that night as it were monas and everybody else intention to kill ali that night. what if byron tried to kill kill ali but hit the wrong person, bethany? his daughter? just thinking aloud. so we have a weird eye glare that byron gives melissa who is connected to burying bethany, according to meredith, byron did something else that night, and meredith knows first hand what byron did, and meredith found it damaging this info that she went off her meds and went crazy aria because of this secret. now that tells me theres more to what were in those pages and did ali take some of these pages out? or who?

welp theres the montgomery/bethany connection ,theres several other clues but this is just the jist of things. its a huge possibility that aria is also marys kid which could tie into this later.

@rosewoodspy @kimssanity @ariathekiller @spencersbleedingpurse @monariaisa @aria-is-a-pll @plltheories102

You know, I really think that Byron Montgomery is a jerk and I never understood why Ella took him back.

However, I hated how the show portrayed him as a villain for not wanting Aria to date Ezra, along with justifying it because he slept with his student. The situations were not comparable. Aria was 16, the student Byron slept with was in her early 20s.

Aria and Ezra were the very definition of illegal. Byron had every right to not want them dating, for trying to keep them apart. He should’ve just called the cops, honestly. I get that they had to make Aria mad at him, pretty standard reaction. But as the audience, we were made to hate him for wanting to protect his daughter. Like how dare he take issue with a 20 something sleeping with a minor! What a monster!

Honestly, out of those parents, Ella was the bad one for being all “Well you’re gonna do it anyway, go ahead sweetie.”

Ezra deserves to be behind bars for sleeping with 2 minors and stalking them. He was the villain.

Byron is still an asshole…but you can’t say he was a bad father because of this.

Aria Montgomery: the rundown

Season 1:

Aria is categorized as the artsy family oriented girl who spent time away from Rosewood for a year while keeping a family secret who transformed into a girl who found love in a seemingly hopeless place with her teacher while her family is falling apart. Might I say that Byron is awful for having his teenage daughter keep his secret, that put her in an impossible position because all she wanted to do was keep her family together. Its a lot for a 16 year old to handle. Cue her and Ezra’s first encounter which was way too quick to my liking. I think they should’ve tried harder to stay away from each other, I wouldn’t want to be in a relationship that I would have to hide from the world—which is what they fought about during the course of this season. She forced herself into a relationship with Noel then they all thought he was A after the whole I See You thing on the car window. I do like how she stuck by her friends. I feel like she was the most skeptical about Alison’s bull than the rest in this season.

Season 2:

Although during this season she was more free to be with Ezra since he wasn’t her teacher at this point but I feel like if she can’t be with him around her family and friends then there’s no point. Ezra should feel gross by dating a kid. Don’t get me wrong, they have their cute moments, are loyal to each other, and have strong feelings for one another I just feel like it should’ve started when she was 18 because if the Rosewood PD was full of competent officers, Ezra would’ve been in some serious trouble. Cue Jason and her little thing where he was semi obsessive with the pictures, idk how I feel about that. Is Rosewood a place where men in their 20s go cruising for high school girls to date. I think this is the season she had that “hey, I have options’’ approach to dating. The thing that I hated about this season was when the parents got the Liars to separate but at the same time I love that it gave them time to trick A(even though it didn’t work out exactly how they planned, I loved it). I thought Dr. Sullivan was full of crap.

Season 3: 

I saw a lot of growth in Aria in the next two seasons but I noticed a lot of her growing moments have to do with her relationship with Ezra. The whole train thing was pretty intense. That whole being in a crate with a dead Garrett Reynolds should’ve been traumatizing for her. I have to say, out of all the times that Ali came to them, when she came to Aria it was my favorite.

Season 4:

When Maggie came to town she had to put things realistically and first started asking herself “can I do this? he has a child”, “can I see this in my future?”, “should I be dating someone my own age?” cue Jake. I enjoyed her relationship with Jake, they were on the same level and I think it had her thinking that she can survive without Ezra, I know their relationship was intense but Jake was a realistic choice considering age, common interests, and clicking quickly. But just like Maggie pushing her away, that led to her being pulled back in when the truth about Malcolm’s paternity was revealed.he went through a lot in season 4 with lashing out at Ezra for his “book” (which I loved) finding out that Alison is alive, etc. 

Season 5:

When Ezra got shot- it gave them more in depth memories and tested them- I was not surprised when they had sex a month later. Her character has such a great dynamic with the whole Shana thing(minus the whole YouTubing her funeral thing but anyways-moving along) I think she should’ve turned to the other girls more instead of trying to check on Jenna because of her guilt. Em went through the same murder-by-self-defense thing, she could’ve turned to her or the others instead of trying to create some distance. The whole dollhouse fiasco was ridiculous but I loved the scene when they found out the verdict was read out, it showed that no matter what happened leading up to that that their friendship was so strong.

Season 6:

I feel like she was the most traumatized post-dollhouse, I love how it was portrayed, gave her more depth. Five years forward I’m glad at Cece’s hearing she told the truth. I find Byron and Ella’s second marriage irrelevant, only thing that would’ve made me perk up would’ve been Mike attending; it was sweet and special that Aria officiated it though. Moving right along, I don’t think Ezria should be engaged because they broke up way before the season 6 time jump making it about 6 years since they’ve been together plus they didn’t see each other during the time jump, they had sex and then in a week or so’s time he was down on one knee, how is that realistic..Over the course of 7 years I think the most impressive thing about her is how much she’s matured, she thinks about things and calculates her moves instead of her younger and impulsive days. Bravo soon to be Mrs. Fitz.

Season 7:

So far I feel like she’s the one who was most determined for normalcy. I think she just wanted to keep her relationship with Ezra solid, I’m glad she kept him from the dark and depressing state he was in in 6A. Other than rekindling Ezria, she hasn’t been doing much in the first half of this season which is probably due to her having a good arc in 7b. 

Fave moments so far:

the emotions she felt watching Ezra find Nicole

accepting the proposal

her fashion sense

being honest at Cece’s hearing

“don’t look at me, I’m ready to hang a sign ’‘bitch can see!”

“she chipped us? she frickin chipped us”

the meltdown after finding out Ezra played her

officiating her parent’s wedding

the night she brought Ali back to Welby

when her and Spencer almost froze to death

What I want from her in the final 10 episodes:

I want her to really be clear about her relationship with ezra before marrying him. if after that she decides she wants to marry him then so be it, get married, have your career, have your man, start a family and be happy. If not draw the line with Ezra, give him back the ring and don’t go back to him.

Myślę, że to przeznaczenie. Ludzie, którym przeznaczone jest być razem, biorą przerwę, a potem znajdują drogę do swojej pierwszej miłości.

Pretty Little Pilot

I am re-watching the pilot episode of Pretty Little Liars and realized that the first ten minutes of the series completely surround ARIA

The girls are hanging out in the barn when they hear a loud bang. They go investigate and it turns out to be Alison just messing with them; they all sit back down.

Alison hands only ARIA a drink. Spencer says, “Don’t drink too much ARIA, or you’ll tell us all your secrets.”

Alison says “Secrets keep us close,” and tells ARIA to drink up. You can see Pigtunia in the background.

The girls (minus Spencer and Alison) are shown sleeping. ARIA wakes up first. She wakes the other girls. They see Spencer walking back into the barn and ask her where Ali is.

Spencer says, “She’s gone, I looked everywhere for her. I think I heard her scream.” The music gets dramatic and the camera zooms in on ARIA’s face.

*Cut to 1 year later*

The front of ARIA’s house is shown.

ARIA is standing in front of a MIRROR, cocking her head to the side (exactly like the photo Bethany drew in Radley).

We find out the Montgomery’s spent the last year in Iceland. Ella asks Aria to bring Mike to lacrosse practice. 

As she is walking out of the house, Byron asks if she is okay. She replies that she is still keeping his secret (that he had an affair with Meredith). He says he meant if she was okay about Alison, she just walks away without answering him.

Aria drops Mike off at practice. The car clock shows that it is 4:15pm. Mike says practice ends at 6pm, and Aria says she is going to go grab some food.

She looks down at her phone, but decides not to make a call.

Aria is sitting at Hollis Bar and Grill.

It looks like she just arrived. She asks the bartender for a cheeseburger. The bar clock shows that it is 5:03pm. What did she do for the last 45 minutes??

She looks at the caulk board and there is a missing poster of Alison, but I noticed that behind it there is a note and you can see the word hoddie written, which is interesting because a black hoodie is A’s favorite get-up.

Ezra is sitting next to her. They talk about traveling, he says he is about to start his first teaching job.

Aria says she loves the song that’s playing, Ezra replies, yeah B26.

He asks what her major is, she hesitates but says she is leaning towards English, and he says that’s what he’s teaching.

Aria: I write too, but it’s mostly personal, just for me.

Ezra: I’m impressed, I tried writing, I didn’t get very far. You’re lucky, if your writing for yourself, it’s true passion. Maybe you’d let me read some of yours.

Aria: You’d really want to?

Ezra: Yeah, you’re smart, you’ve traveled, you have great taste in music, I’d like to know more about you. 

This conversation reveals a lot considering what we know now. Ezra had a thing for Ali, which he broke off that night when he found out her age. He proceeded to get close to Aria to get information on Alison.  Something I never understood was why Ezra wouldn’t date Ali when she was 15, but is perfectly fine dating 16 year old Aria?… 

The show cuts to them making out in the bathroom

Then the theme song comes on, and ARIA does the Shhh!

They spent the very first 10 minutes of the show all on ARIA.

It seems like the writers were making ARIA the main character.  WHY?!

Because she is related to the plot in a huge way!?!?? I HOPE SO! 


An important development that needs to be noticed: The Montgomery family + Ezra. Over the past couple of seasons we’ve obviously seen Ella warm up (with small steps) to accepting Ezra. Same with Byron. But now, they aren’t just continuing to say: “Okay, we’ll accept Aria is with Ezra and just ignore it.”. Now, they realize how big of a role Ezra has in Aria’s life. That no matter what, he’s not going away. This development was more mentioned than shown, but first they start by inviting him over to be with their family on Thanksgiving. Through-out 5B, going more unnoticed by viewers, Ezra is shown over at Aria’s house. Like when they were just casually sitting on her couch eating dinner, as if they were back at his apartment. Noting that Ezra being over at Aria’s house with her is not a big deal. Remember when he had to drop her off 3 blocks from her house?

Then when it’s mentioned by Aria that Ezra and Mike went out to his cabin so Mike could get out of town because her parent’s “trust Ezra” to take care of Mike. And with Mike and Ezra, obviously Mike didn’t actually punch Ezra out of hatred, it was so Byron wouldn’t. But it’s so important that Ezra and Mike have been shown to be bonding. Hopefully furthering it down the line where Ezra can have a “big brother” role for him because, you know, he’s going to be his future brother-in-law one day. ;)

Aria's Address

We find out last episode that Aria’s address is 301 Sunnybrook Lane via the college denial letter.

So 3x01 is the episode that mirrors the pilot and the return of A according to Marlene.

We see Aria looking in the mirror with the same dress on she had in the pilot.

Just another hint towards Aria and/or her family being A.

Deserves a Rewatch for clues.

Tragic Clues in PLL: Could they Mean More? + Montgomery family

In regards to this blog post on the movie Rebecca : http://prettylittlefilms.tumblr.com/post/113684723281/rebecca-1940-a-naive-young-woman-whose-name-is

It hit me reading this line: When a new inquest is held into Rebecca’s death, things look dim for Maxim until Rebecca’s London doctor testifies to the authorities that she was dying of cancer and was contemplating suicide.

Ok im finally going to make a note about this . The cancer clues in PLL. There are a couple, I never thoguht they meant much but now im starting to wonder in terms of all the tragic clues that are in pll. Here what I found:

  • Suicide: So we all know the suicide associations related to marion cavanaugh and ian. What do they have in common? both suicides are suspicious especially marion cavanaugh , theres no way she comitted suicide. ian i honestly dont think he shot himself.
  • Cancer: There’s a couple cancer clues in PLL that were strange. Maya once joked about nair in shampoo bottles, thats a relation to cancer. We veronica’ secret about her breast cancer scare and that she didnt tell anyone but alex about getting a lump removed. The infamous dream hanna had about her mom’s hair falling out:

And last the infamous wig wearing going on in PLL, all in relation to cancer. of course , the obivous , to look like someone else. Could these clues be hinting at a bigger picture here?

Let’s look at all the other tragic clues in PLL:

Loss of Hearing: So many have noticed the jokes hanna’s made toward jenna, but thats not the first clue hanna gives us. In the christmas epsiode, hanna shares her ability of sign language. We see her signing with little claire who is deaf. Hanna claims she learned this at fat camp “what hanna knows is what hanna means” lol Now remember this scene, the mean girls here, the little ali replica is being a real bitch to poor claire who is deaf, the little ali replica says “ its not like she can hear us anyways” Do the writers throw these scenes in here for fun or do they have more meaning? I think they do.

UPDATE EDIT: someone on tumblr pointed out in the video pllheada​ of the little boy in 5x25 has a hearing aid , what appears to be a hearing aid. As i pointed out in this old post about tragic clues and clues on loss of hearing, this could be another clue to add to that!

  • Loss of Eye Sight: we all know the blindest person on the show is  jenna thats another story, but anyways the point is the jenna thing could have more story to it . But we also see other clues about seeing and the eyes and loss of sight. Mrs grunwald sees through a glass darkly , meaning we cant take her word 100% she has insight, not full truth. Theres also clues with aria not seeing things clearly. The NAT club the all seeing eye. EYES  are huge clue in PLL. Could there be more to this than what we alredy know?
  • Burned: Now alot of clues on being burned , gives us insight to whats going on in PLL. We know black veil and the side of the face burned. Tobys house , the lodge fire, all burned. Poor cyrus all burned up. Spencer in the sauna room all steamed up by -A (funny how aria just so happens to be the one to get spencer out of there just in time hmmm), caleb almost fried up. There’s something with heat and hot going on in PLL. Let’s look at the clues with aria and the burn references with her that seem to have more deeper meaning mentally, perhaps even physically:

aria “Lieing to my parents was one thing, but lieing to my friends is really hard, its not my friends that i dont trust ….its the other people..I’ve been burned before” could there be something more to being burned with aria? is it mentally burned or physical? this isnt the first time aria has expressed or been associated with the element of fire and heat. is there a contrast with cold and hot in pll? i think so.

Has anyone noticed how byron is always bringing up the past as if he screwed it up in the past? lol jsut saying everytime he’s bring up something about the past, dont think its a coincidence. So in this scene, byron says “ when we first moved into this house, we didnt have money for a furnace, it was winter, but we bundled you up in sweaters, you looked like this big ball of yarn rolling from room to room.We never used the fireplace, i was scared if we’d turn our backs you’d get burned. My one job on this job was to make sure you didnt get hurt. I havent done a very good job”

so again, in relation to aria, being burned is mentioned again, and the contrast between cold and hot. Look at this scene the fireplace going. The elements are big clues. Could this convo been about something more? byron seems to always bring up the past, he seems like a screw up in the montgomery family. Is there just the one meredith secret between him and aria or is there more to it or more secrets? i personally think there is definitely more to this family in general.

Note: why do you think byron likes to talk about the past and how ella “wore the pants” made a small place seem big, basically she took care of everybody all the time. They went from poor living in a college dump on east 6th an unexpected pregnant ella, byron felt bad he couldnt get them something better. But he talks about while they were still in college, they talked about moving to europe, but then aria happened, then mike, and a mortgage. So what changed? was it really because of the ella getting pregnant which doesnt seem like aria was planned. Then he goes onto say, iceland does not count, you were taking care of 2 teenagers and 1 nutty professor.  Questions are, why did they talk about moving to europe and what part of europe exactly? what if they did move there but had to move back for some reason? Remember this line from ella from 3x10 “ there were so many things your father and i didnt know about each other when we got married…(aria takes arm off ella and makes a face)” so something is off with byron and ella’s relationship, what happened in their past, an what are these things? byron has mental illness on his side of the family , who knows how far this extends to & how it has affected their relationship, what else did ella not know about byron vice versa?

*Something i noticed , remember when aria confronted ella about what byron did with the transcript and how he wants aria to go to boarding school. Something hit me when aria said “ what was the plan mom, were you gunna hall me off kicking and screaming in the middle of the night?” this reminds me of the bethany drawing :

just something to think about

! this picture does look like someone is being halled off kicking and screaming in the middle of the night. Also in that clip, aria’s tone was very different, she starts talking about being

exiled to syberia (doesn’t this sound a secluded place, like iceland? which is why i ask why iceland of alll places, what was iceland really about?)

then she goes onto say

“ i’ve couldve done something about it, i still could, what do you think would happen if the dean found out he was having an affair with one of his grad students? where do you think they’d send him?”

  now she says this after ranting about being punished by byron and being exiled to syberia. The choice of words here is telling , in connection to what we know about the montgomerys, coincidence?

ok question:

where would they send him? if we are talking about meredith, she was of age , byron wouldn’t be sent no where but home and fired from his job perhaps , but he wouldnt go to jail if thats what aria is trying to say. meredith was of age, unless it was more like an affair with an underage grad student?

ali was pretending to be older, it wouldnt be unlikely

, and many have suggested some relationship might have happened with ali and byron. im curious if anyone else understood this scene, you think aria was talking about meredith? where would byron be sent to exactly? as far as i know, he wouldnt be thrown in jail for the affair with meredith since she was of age right? he would be fired if anything but , the way aria is talking, is as if he would be sent somewhere bad for that affair. what do you think? you know when aria gets hyped and starts raising her voice, her mind seems to go somewhere else, the choice of words she uses are interesting. misplaced feelings ,anger?

Let me know what you guys think of these tragic clues and added on details in this post could they all be alluding to something more big? more underneath the surface?

A.D. is an original!!

In a recent (pre-season 7 premiere) TV interview with Lucy, Troian, Shay and Sasha on The Talk, they said that Uber A (I believe it’s been said they are also A.D.) has known that they were Uber A from the start. This makes me very excited and means that we can cross people like Lorenzo and Toby’s fiancé (totally blanking on her name, soz) off the suspect list!! Andrea Parker has stated that she is not Uber A bit is working with them so we can disregard her too! Below is a list of people that have been in the show since season one. Let’s just add the possibility of any of them having a secret twin, this is PLL after all!! I’ve noted if the character is dead or likely to be irrelevant in terms of Uber A.

Alison Dilaurentis
Spencer Hasitings
Hanna Marin
Emily Fields
Aria Montgomery

Jason Dilaurentis
Ken Dilaurentis
Melissa Hastings
Veronica Hastings
Peter Hastings
Ashley Marin (probably irrelevant)
Tom Marin (probably irrelevant)
Pam Fields (probably irrelevant)
Mike Montgomery (probably irrelevant)
Ella Montgomery (probably irrelevant)
Byron Montgomery (probably irrelevant)

Jenna Marshall
Toby Cavanaugh
Mona Vanderwaal
Caleb Rivers
Ezra Fitz
Noel Kahn
Paige McCullers
Wren Kingston
Lucas Gottesman

Darren Wilden (dead)
Maya St. Germain (dead)
Ian Thomas (dead)
Garret Reynolds (dead)
Jessica Dilaurentis (dead)
Wayne Fields (dead)

Sean Ackard (probably irrelevant)
Ben Coogan (probably irrelevant)
Alex Santiago (probably irrelevant)
Meredith Sorenson (probably irrelevant)
Barry Maple (probably irrelevant)

Bethany Young (dead)
Marion Cavanaugh (dead)

Basically we’re left with the liars, the Dilaurentis family and the Hastings family. Then we have;

Jenna (probably not but working with them)

Toby (he’s been on the team before but this could have been a cover? He was framed by Ali for blinding Jenna and could still have beef but I’m leaning towards not after the work he put into finding out about Rollins)

Mona (would LOVE and hate this at the same time)

Caleb (after the writers were willing to write him out of the show for Ravenswood, I doubt it)

Ezra (season four. Need I say more?)

Noel (Ali said that he has secrets, we still don’t know what they are!)

Paige (meh, I doubt it)

Wren (🇬🇧 🤓 I am a Wren is A enthusiast and would for him to be involved!!)

And Lucas (mistreated from the start, obsessed with Hannah, probably the one who attacked Ali in ‘The First Secret’).

It probably all comes down to the two families though, there’s so much back story and they definitely seem to be going this way. I don’t think a liar twin is out of the question and Spencer seems the most likely to me at the moment.

What do y'all think??

Sorry for the long post!!
