“We all know each other but haven’t necessarily shared the screen together. It looked like it was going to be a masculine kind of act-off. And ironically, with the exception of Ben Mendelsohn, I think Jacki Weaver actually slipped through the back door and took the top honours.”

“Jacki’s everybody’s Mum. She’s one of those personalities. But you’ve got to earn her respect as well.’‘ 

–  Joel Edgerton commending Jacki Weaver for holding her own on the testosterone-heavy set of "Animal Kingdom”

Endless List of Historical Figures: GRACE O’MALLEY

Grace O'Malley (Gráinne Ní Mháille), “The Sea Queen of Connacht”, is a well-known historical figure in 16th-century Irish history.
She was born in Ireland around 1530. Her father, Eoghan Dubhdara Ó Máille, was chieftain of the Ó Máille clan, one of the few seafaring families on the west coast, with castles facing the sea to protect their territory. Upon her father’s death she inherited his large shipping and trading business, and became chieftain of the Ó Máille clan herself.

With England (nominally in charge of Ireland) taxing the use of the seas, O'Malley decided to extract a similar tax from ships travelling in waters off her lands. O'Malley’s ships would stop and board the traders and demand either cash or a portion of the cargo in exchange for safe passage. Resistance was met with violence and even murder. She built up a massive fleet of hundred-man galleyships and a sizable fortune.

In the later 16th century, English power steadily increased in Ireland and O'Malley’s power was steadily encroached upon. Finally, in 1593, when her sons and half-brother were taken captive by the English, O'Malley sailed to England to petition Elizabeth I for their release. She met personally with the Queen, armed with a dagger and refusing to bow for she did not recognize Elizabeth as the Queen of Ireland. A temporary peace agreement was brokered between the two women, which saw O'Malley’s captive clansmen released and a hated enemy stripped of his office. In exchange, O'Malley was to stop supporting the Irish lords’ rebellions. Within a rather short period of time Elizabeth reinstated the English official and O'Malley, realizing that the meeting with Elizabeth had been useless, went back to supporting Irish insurgents during the Nine Years’ War. 

She most likely died at Rockfleet Castle around 1603, the same year as Elizabeth, though the year and place of her death are disputed.

Lucas
Mike
Jason
Toby
Caleb
Ezra

Take away those who are related to a liar or have been in the same room as A at the same time (as well as Caleb and Ezra since they were with Ali when the girls got out of the dollhouse, meaning neither could be Charles since he was in there):

Zach

Now take away those who have been accused and cleared of being A:

Zach
Alex

Holden
Sean
Travis
Jake
Ted
Holbrook
Wren
Noel
Lucas

Now take away high school aged kids since Charles is around 7 years older than Alison:
Zach
Jonny
Ted
Holbrook
Wren

Take away Holbrook because he kissed Alison and if he’s Charles, that implies incest

Take away Ted because he’s too old.

We have Zach, Jonny and Wren left.

Zach was in Europe with Ella so that’s unlikely. Also, though it isn’t confirmed, it’s implied he’s in his 30s.

Jonny could be possible, but he tells Spencer that he her mom sued his granny’s nursing home for his mom. Veronica wouldn’t have allowed someone to live in their pool house unless she knew who they were.

That leaves Wren. He has no backstory that can be confirmed. He is the right age. He’s sketchy as hell. He has supposedly been in England with Melissa, but when Spencer was there, did we see Wren even once?
