I am crossing my fingers, legs, arms and toes Maya’s story is further elaborated on. She was a suspicious character who died mysteriously. We ALL know how the dead do not like to stay dead in Rosewood, and this quote was repeated by the cast during recent interviews.
- The day she moved into Alison’s home, Spencer saw someone wearing a blonde wig staring at her from Ali’s old window. We know this was Maya, bc the top Fake Ali was wearing was the top Maya was wearing that day. Even if this was innocent, I’d like it to be explained.
- She was hanging around with Noel Beheaded Serial Killer Khan, and attending the parties along with Cece, Jenna and Holden. She died for knowing too much, but why did she hang around with them in the first place? Why were they so enticing?
- Masssugar.com. That whole thing was an unexplained rollercoaster.
- The Nate storyline was as useless as those Supermarkets who put peeled oranges into plastic packets. WHAT did it add to the A storyline? Why would Nate kill Maya and why was it even included into the plot? Surely A killing Maya would have better enhanced the story? This is still fishy to me.
- Maya flirted with Emily the moment their eyes met. At this time Emily was still in the closet, dating Ben. Maya did not flirt with the other girls. Either Emily made it super obvious, Maya possesses a strong gaydar, or she already knew.
- Redcoat. This mysterious character was flicked away from the plot by Marlene, explaining it away with Sara and Alison. But Redcoat knew every inch of the DiLaurentis household. Sure, Alison does too. But there were multiple redcoats. Charles could have remembered from his childhood the hiding places and told Sara, or found the blueprints, but the only other person who knew that house was Maya. The blonde wig from S1:E1, and the fact that Redcoat wears gloves, wigs and a mask points to the fact that perhaps Redcoat isn’t a blonde, white girl? I am literally nitpicking here good Lord
If you have any more points you’d like to add, please add a comment and I’ll add it to the list along with a credit to your name! Feel free to also tell me if you think any of my points are actual garbage, which they probably are, because I feel like Edward Scissorhands clutching at straws here.
We caught up with Still Star-Crossed’s resident prince, Sterling Sulieman, to talk secret affairs, sacrifices, and Shakespeare.
Bid good-morrow to your new favorite TV prince: Sterling Sulieman
has just begun his run on ABC’s Shakespearean soap fest, Still
Star-Crossed. Before assuming the throne, the charming Hawaiian was best
known for his roles as Nate St. Germain on Pretty Little Liars and
Harper on The Vampire Diaries. Now in the capable hands of Shonda Rhimes,
the Queen of Soap herself, his Romeo and Juliet is sexy, fun, and
surprisingly complicated. We’re only three episodes in, but we’ve caught
up with Sulieman to get the scoop on what to expect in the upcoming
season, and what his character was “born to do.”
Sulieman phoned into TV After Dark to talk romance, violence, and
intrigue in his new hit series, where his Escalus is still learning to
balance his personal life with the greater good. We learned about Prince
Escalus’s regrets, his relationship with Rosaline (Lashana Lynch), and what may or may not have actually gone down in Venice. Want to know more? Read on!
TVAD | Romeo and Juliet is on the required reading list for
many schools. Of all the Shakespeare you had to read in high school, did
you have a favorite? Sterling Sulieman: I really liked a Midsummer Night’s Dream. It’s so fantastical and magical, that’s one of my favorites.
Do you think you would still have taken the role if you had to do the lines in old English? I definitely would have accepted that, but I guess it would be rough.
Prince Escalus lives in a society in which social class is
of the utmost importance. Have you ever been in a situation where social
conventions got in the way of love? I think, personally, I haven’t been in that kind of situation, and it
definitely exists in our society. It’s interesting to play with, so
it’s not like a foreign concept but, personally, I never had to deal
With so much pressure to abide by duty to his people, do you think the prince will ever truly be free to be himself? You know, that’s one of the things that I wonder as well, because
Benvolio and Rosaline from the get go–they are kind off battling their
place in society. They don’t really want to be the heirs. They don’t
want to get married, but as much as I want Rosaline, I am the prince and
that’s what I was born to do, and I don’t think Escalus sees a way out
of being the prince, or even wants a way out of being the prince. He
just wants his cake and to eat it too!
The prince initially chooses duty over love. Will he come to regret the decision? Yes. I mean, I think Prince Escalus regrets it while he’s doing it.
It’s not a choice he makes lightly. In that scene, he wants, he thinks
he can have her. He thinks it can happen, and then when he discovered
Romeo’s body, it’s just very clear that, that can’t happen. If Verona
falls, then everyone falls. He sacrifices his happiness for everybody.
What we do know is that the prince is a peacemaker of sorts. Is that something you’ve ever found yourself doing in real life? Yes, that’s definitely a role I play in many relationships.
Prince Escalus often must appear neutral and dutiful to his
people, but could giving up the woman he loves to another man force him
down a dark path and if so how dark should we expect? I feel like he doesn’t understand how dark he’s going to get. When he
comes to town, he would assume that the way it should go is that his
father should help him into this role, and he would take over, and there
wouldn’t be this scandal with Juliet, and everyone is coming at him so
fast. He’s learning to stand up for himself, and so it’s coming out in
different ways, and it’s coming out harsh, and I think he would
definitely continue down that path if he can’t be with Rosaline.
Prince Escalus may choose peace over love, but could his
decision to push Rosaline into marrying Benvolio Montague have
unintentional consequences? Yes, definitely. He can’t choose a side, but there’s not, like, the
feeling goes away, but there’s definitely be some kind of animosity
against Benvolio, who gets to have the woman he loves. So, even though
Prince Escalus is the one deciding it, I don’t feel like he feels that
way about it. It’s like this has to be done, and, unfortunately, I think
he probably will hold some grudges against the circumstances.
The show is going to turn audiences with more than just sexy
accents and Shakespearean eye candy. Are there any surprise hookups for
Prince Escalus? There are some hookups happening all over the place but not for
Prince Escalus. He is caught up in his duty and the drama with Rosaline.
He’s pretty occupied.
While the original Shakespearean text about Romeo and Juliet
had one innocently sexy bedroom scene, what is the most scandalous
thing we can expect to see coming from the show this season? There are definitely some secret affairs, and there are some love scenes.
Women in Shakespearean times were not given very much power
over their lives. Given that this is a modern take, in what ways will we
see Rosaline and the other female characters take charge and assert
themselves? You know, that’s interesting, because we do kind of stick to what the
rules of the society. You know, Rosaline’s not off having affairs and
stuff, like she’s keeping a virtue and all these things, but the women
definitely find a way to manipulate their way around the rules and
figure out what’s going on–and I think manipulate the men that are
already in existence. You definitely see them all standing up for
themselves and being very strong in our story.
We know that political intrigue is commonplace in this era.
Could Prince Escalus be harboring a secret that could destroy his
family? I mean, he definitely has a past in Venice that we don’t really get
to know about, but I mean, they broke Romeo and Juliet apart, so I guess
we’ll just have to wait and see.
If you could play a female character on the show, which character would you love to play? Ooooh…that’s interesting. I think…tough. I mean, they are all wildly
different. Maybe between Lady Capulet and Rosaline. Rosaline has a lot
of fire, but Lady Capulet is so dangerous. She’s strong, and she knows
her powers for sure.
What are your after dark guilty pleasures? I would say drinking wine and going out dancing. My favorite nights is playing old school 90’s R&B.
Be honest. If you had to choose, would you be a Montague or a Capulet? I was told to never take sides. (laughs)

This time-line was made by me ( myyouthismine ), and I put a lot of effort in this. If you like it, reblog it so more people can see it. Please, don’t steal it. If you find another events you’d like me to include, message me.
I was answering this ask here, and began to get a little off topic, so I decided to put this bit in a separate post.
We’re lead to believe the first time Alison goes back to Rosewood is when Hanna is in the hospital, but Spencer sees someone who looks strikingly like Alison in her old room the night before “her” body is found under the gazebo. I think this is due to the St. Germain’s moving in. Alison came to check on some of her hiding places.
There are lots of conspiracies surrounding Maya since the bag Alison had while on the run was seen with Maya’s in the Kahn’s cabin. Perhaps the things of Alison’s that Maya had in her bag and that Lyndon stole from her were actually taken purposefully to give back to Alison. This causes one to wonder how long Maya knew Alison was alive.
I was always sure that the coded “MAYA KNEW” wasn’t about Nate/Lyndon and instead had to do with Alison. At the time, I had assumed that perhaps it meant that Maya had stumbled across one of Alison’s hiding places in her house and figured out that someone had been harassing her before she “died”. That she discovered the existence of -A.
Looking back, it appears that what she knew was that Alison was alive. That they had been hiding out together at the Kahn’s cabin. I never believed that whole Nate/Lyndon storyline was a coincidence and wasn’t connected to -A. The text Paige received that was apparently from Lyndon was signed “-A”. I think Maya’s death had more to do with what she knew about Alison or learned from Alison than some crazy ex. Lyndon may have been the one to kill her, but -A obviously had a hand in it.
Going back to wondering how long Maya knew Alison was alive… Did Alison actually sneak into her house that night? Was that the only time she sneaked in while the St. Germain’s lived there? Did Maya see her then? Was she really even sneaking in at all, or was Maya another person Alison sent to Rosewood? It could be that Maya knew Noel would hide her at his family’s cabin because Alison told her about it. Maya was really insensitive when it came to Alison being dead, what if that’s because she knew the girl was alive the whole time?
How come all the black people on PLL either die or just get replaced? Maya’s dead, Shana’s dead, Lindon/Nate’s dead, E. Lamb’s gone/probably dead, and even Emily’s original swim coach got replaced by some white lady. Why? I don’t want to accuse the producers and casting people or whoever’s in charge of this, but like, what the heck is up with this? Literally the only black people on this show who are still alive is the Declodyne company lady and Big Rhonda, which by the way, why does Big Rhonda have to be so aggressive and talk like that? I mean I know she’s a mental patient, but literally no one else was like that in there besides her. It just seems ridiculous to me. Like I said before, I don’t want to make accusations, but…
OKAY SO I HAVE THIS THEORY THAT MAKES ALOT OF SENSE AFTER RE WATCHING THE EPISODE IN SEASON 3 WHERE HANNAH AND EMILY GO TO THE KAHNS CABIN AFTER THEY FIND THE PICTURE OF MAYA OUTSIDE THE KAHN’S!
OKAY SO BARE WITH ME FOR A SECOND. ITS LONG BUT WORTH THE READ
Let’s start from when Mona was in radley… When aria and Hannah went to see Mona at Radley they followed Mona to the child’s ward where she was brushing a dolls hair and speaking the secret code her and Hannah used to use, that ended up being Maya’s website (massugar.com)
Okay.. well the other “code” Mona was saying was “Miss Aria You’re a Killer Not Ezra’s Wife” which stands for “Maya Knew” now!! we first thought maya knew who A was and that’s why she was killed but I think that what it really meant was MAYA KNEW ALISON WAS ALIVE!!
Now let me back this up! Before you say I’m crazy think about the facts!
1) When hanna and Emily went to the kahns cabin after finding the picture of maya on her website, they find Maya’s bag and put it together that Maya was staying at the Kahns when she was on the run from “Nate St Germain”. When they find the bag (first picture) I picked up on a small detail that I missed when I first watched the episode! There’s a bag behind Hanna that MATCHES the bag Alison was holding when she “went away” and pretended to be dead to be free of A from the Lost Woods Motel ( Second picture)
2) We learned in the finale that noel has been helping ali hide out ever since she pretended to die SO it makes sense that she would be staying at the Kahns the same time Maya was.
BASICALLY that is full proof that Maya “knew” alison and knew she was alive and I think that’s what she wanted to tell Emily the night she was killed!
