Jenna’s Role in All Of This
So for starters, lets look at the Jenna/Mona relationship that I like to call Jona.
-Mona and Jenna met in “The First Secret“ (bonded over hating Alison)
We often assume this was Shana, but maybe not. Maybe it was Mona, or even Maya’s killer. It’s really hard to say.
(maybe, just maybe, this IS Maya and Jenna is giving her a tool to fake her own death? Or maybe Jenna and Maya had a plan and this IS Maya, but whoever wanted Jenna distracted at the masquerade had the motive of killing Maya and needed Jenna distacted to do it) See alisyellowtop ‘s amazing Maya theory here
What did A need Melissa to distract Jenna for anyway?
-Next, Mona somehow now has Jenna’s car
which coincidentally has CHD 2463 on the plates (Charles Hastings DiLaurentis??) old car…
-Bitch can see!!! (did Mona know?) Don’t Underestimate A Blind Bitch
-Mona and Jenna never hang out in public together but they get together for shady secret meetings
-Mona and Jenna both dated Noel (Did their friendship suffer at all? They have worked together aginst Alison since this, but where do their loyalties lie?)… Common girl rule, even mentioned in this show, is don’t date your friends ex… As Aria reminds Sean and Hanna reminds Wren.
-Jonah,(Vivian Darkblooms friend) the guy who called them after they tried calling that # and asking for Vivian. And Jonah’s Diner.. If my little theory is true, the writers are totally trolling with a ship name -awesome :-)
Now let’s look at the signs of Mona and Jenna working together in Season 3.
The song A is listening to in the 3x3 ending is In the Eye Abides the Heart. Here we see A with the tooth necklace, vodka and the body that was dug up.
In the Eye Abides the Heart is the song Mona sang in Radley while holding the Q of H card.
Jenna invited Aria to play it with her in 3x2 and they practice together in 3x3, Aria on piano, Jenna on flute.. Interesting A is listening to a version with only the piano music (what a flute player would practice their part to)
Queen of Hearts:
Also in this conversation, Jenna makes a comment to Ezra that makes clear she knows he’s a creepy spy. It may also imply they work/ed together
Jenna was also friends with Wilden. She was in Cape May when he was. Possibly avenging him also, blames the liars. If Ashley actually did kill Wilden (highly possible) then that’s why Jenna would want to see her punished.
Next we have this scenario to look at, from the night Emily was drugged. It also implies Jenna is Red Coat. Jenna sees Emily while wearing a Red Coat the night the body was dug up. Mona and Emily said “Red Coat” was there that night with an Ali mask on. Mona takes her “orders” from Red Coat,
Jenna + the piano music in the A ending with the teeth and the body, + Jenna seeing Emily that night wearing a Red coat + Emily seeing a woman in a Red Coat at the cemetery = Jenna played a part in the theft of the body.
Noel admitted that he was with Jenna that night also, and they had the Kahn party stamps , so they had recently come from there, which was confirmed by Noel in “The Kahn Game” - he claims they were at a Diner (Jonah’s?)
Now let’s remember how much Vivian Darkbloom (Ali) looks like Jenna.
It’s even possible that when Alison was attacked in the first secret, that the attacker had gotten her and Jenna confused for each other. Or this was simply a parallel with the Vivian Darkbloom/Red Coat thing… Kinda twinsies though…
Now lets think:
Watching this scene with Spencer, Emily, Jenna and Sidney at the eye doctor is very interesting. I wondered why the F they would dress those Jenna and Sydney the same if they aren’t twins, what’s going on?
Then I also noticed how even Em and Spencer look similar and even could be mistaken for each other from behind. And Spencer can also pass for Jenna with those red skinny jeans she’s wearing. You can’t see it here but Jenna and Sidney are wearing red skinny jeans too…
And they are at the eye doctor, and all wearing sunglasses.
Remember when someone tried to drown Jenna? Even Emily thought it was Spencer she was saving because of the brown hair and yellow shirts.
The writers really want us to notice how often people can be mistaken for others. And Jenna is always involved in these scenes.
So I thought about “That Night’
Jenna wanted Garrett to kill Ali. He pretended to kill her but didn’t actually do it.
Alison doing this shhhh is the only shhhh I can think of in the whole series other than the theme song.
Garrett died in S3 on the Ghost Train after revealing to Spencer that Jenna wanted Garrett to kill Ali. He pretended to kill her but didn’t actually do it.
Jenna was wearing an eye patch on the Ghost train (could only see out of one eye) This is a clue, wait for it….
Why the fuck would Garrett help cover up a murder he didn’t commit?
The night Ali disappeared, Jenna had just come back to Rosewood from her 1st surgery.
What if Jenna could see “That Night”, just enough to know Garrett lied. Maybe just one eye could see. What if she went back to really kill Alison and accidentally killed Bethany instead, due to not so great vision?
Its’s possible Alison even tricked her into doing it. Ali was pretty devious.
This would explain why she has to pretend to be blind, and also why she framed Garrett. Because she did it. So she played a part in digging up the body and tried to frame the liars. If someone is after Bethany’s murderer and A is seeking vengeance for Bethany, then Jenna IS a target. Notice how her house blew up right after Bethany Young was announced as the body?
Jenna’s motive to frame the liars: To cover the fact that she killed Bethany.
She tried to place it on Garrett. It didn’t work (thanks to the liars) so now who can she pin it on? Maybe the girls who have been fucking with her?
Some reasons why she would frame them:
All the liars were part of the fireworks (Jenna thing) which resulted in her sight loss and Toby going to juvie.
All had NAT vids of Jenna at some point and purposely blackmailed her with them.
Alison- Blinded her (seen above), blackmailed her (seen above), interfered with any possibility of hooking up with Emily.
How the liars got Jenna so vengeful towards them:
Hanna- slapped her, (Jenna may have been jealous of Vandermarin also), got Hanna got Caleb on liars side.
Aria- (Jenna seemed to kinda like Aria until Aria killed her gf)
Emily- maybe jealousy over Emison, and friendship with Toby (Interestingly, Jenna seems to like Emily mostly, warned her about Nate)
Spencer- stole Toby from her
So if Jenna needed to frame someone to cover the fact that she killed Bethany, who better than the liars?
I’m not saying she’s A. But she may be guilty of Bethany’s murder.
I actually think A has also terrorized Jenna. And just like the liars often suspect Jenna, Jenna probably suspects them (hence getting Shana and Sidney to spy for her)
But it seems like Jenna was on the A-Team right up until she realized Alison was alive. At that point she got really scared. We haven’t seen her since the ice ball.
