pll season 5

Bethany Young and Charles

After reading about Charles and who he might be here’s what I got:

Charles is Jason’s twin or older brother (probably twin). The theory out there right now is that Charles has gender identity disorder, where he is a boy, but wants to be a girl/associates himself as one (hopefully I got that right). Which could make sense, it would explain A’s obsession with Alison, dolls, the girls, and why at times A seems like a man and other times like a woman, depending on how Charles wants to present himself (long shot I know, but I’m kind of confused by this finale). Also explains Red Coat (who looks like Alison – Charles is obsessed and dresses like her) and Black Veil (another feminine figure we have no idea who they are – and could be the reason Mrs. DiLaurentis dressed like Black Veil in the Christmas episode – she was either BV or referencing Charles, her son)

The dresses Mrs. DiLaurentis bought for Alison one Christmas was for Charles and Alison. And Mrs. DiLaurentis had to hide it from Mr. DiLaurentis because he does not approve of Charles, and that is why you don’t see Charles around because Mr. DiLaurentis sent Charles to Radley because he was ashamed of him. But Mrs. DiLaurentis supports Charles, so she bought him the dress and visits him at Radley. That is because Bethany Young is actually Charles DiLaurentis. 

If Mr. DiLaurentis didn’t want anyone knowing about Charles, he put him in Radley under a different name. And that’s why Mrs. DiLaurentis is on the board and why she hung out with Bethany a lot. 

It would also explain why Mrs. DiLaurentis had an affair with Bethany’s father because her father is Mr. Hastings. I mean how many affairs can she have?

It could also be the reason Mr. DiLaurentis hates Jason because he reminds him of Charles and loves Alison because she is his actual daughter. Also that is the reason Mrs. DiLaurentis protected Alison’s attacker because it was Charles. It could also explain the clothes Mrs. DiLaurentis was buying back in season 4. They weren’t clothes for Alison, but rather clothes for Charles. 

Also it would explain why Bethany thought Mrs. DiLaurentis was lying to her because Charles was so young when emitted to Radley he couldn’t remember who his mom was. So Charles found out somehow and sought revenge on Mrs. DiLaurentis for lying to him. And that’s why she was killed?

And it ties in Sarah Harvey because that would mean Bethany Young would have to be alive and it is actually Sarah Harvey’s body that was found not Bethany/Charles.  

And that would mean Hanna’s insult to A about being a “he-she-it-bitch” would be super spot on if Charles had gender identity disorder. 

I had more ideas, but I forgot them. I am also really confused and have no idea who Charles actually is – my guess is CeCe Drake (obsessed with Alison, is older, Charles DiLaurentis (CD) = CeCe Drake (CD)) Because A has to be someone we have met or else this is just ridiculous…


Hello Ezra’s shoes! So when I saw this I literally screamed because I remembered Hanna saying “You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes” and usually when we see A doing stuff, they are wearing ALL BLACK even the shoes, so when I saw these shoes and how familiar they looked, I HAD to share! Also, you can’t see a Black hoodie and the arms would be bulkier if this person was wearing one. All we see is black pants and Ezra’s shoes.



Could Ali be a victim of abuse ?

Oliver Goldstick Said : ” One of the Wirting’ assistants this year just blurts things and she goes, “Oh my God. She’s so abused. For someone to be this dark, someone had to be this dark to her.”

But the truth is, what did happen to that girl that she could be this disturbed to take on this many people and be this vicious in her behavior?

Troian talking about Spencer and Ali’s relationship:
“And there’s a really great scene coming up between Spencer and Alison; There is such a sense of… brokenheartedness and fear of the world because they both come from households of abuse; the Hastings is more emotional abuse and there’s a real possiblity of it being some other kind of - possibly more physical abuse in the DiLaurentis house.”

Other Reasons I found :

1.) Alison comes off very sexual for her age and probably the most out of the entire girls.

2.) She is seen involved with older people a lot through the show; Going to frat parties, Flying in a plane with Duncan who obviously was older, hanging around with CeCe who is her brothers age, ‘dating’ Ian,

3.) Her remarks on how Jason doesn’t use door knobs, She came into spencer house talking about there aren’t enough locks on her doors and she starts to cry.

4.) She is so angry with Jenna for forcing Toby to sleep with Her.

5.) This could also lead to why She has such a tough exterior and is so mean to Mona, Lucas, Paige, Jenna and Toby. She knows they are weak and continues to mess with them to feel inferior to them, to feel strong and powerful in her own way.

Even with the Liars she is looked up to and feels like she owns them. She wants to feel this way and must maintain this because she is so down and out in her personal life!

Abuse Victim Characteristics:

People-pleasing and rescuing
Excessive need to control
Obsessive, compulsive behavior patterns
Weak boundaries
Unhealthy choices in members of the opposite sex
Neurotic tendencies
Addictions: drugs, alcohol, sex, food, relationships
Eating disorders
Manic-depressive behavior (emotional extremes of highs and lows)
Running away
Acting out
Wanting to leave school

Sounds a bit like Ali right ? The question is who was the offender ?

Ali's Plan/New Identity #PLL

“I’m pretending to be someone else … I do it a lot … because I’m bored.”

In last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars we see Alison DiLaurentis with dark hair again and we instantly assume she’s using her Vivian Darkbloom identity but Ali gave that identity to CeCe Drake in the Season 5 premiere episode ‘EscApe from New York.’

Cyrus Petrillo didn’t call her Vivian like Duncan would have, he called her Ali. Another thing is she’s wearing her chunky heels with black jeans again meaning she’s gone back to Redcoat style but instead of the red coat she’s in a black coat and her hair/wig is straight as opposed to curly like her Vivian identity.

She was spotted 4 nights ago on Spencer’s cam wearing her chunky heels and black jeans, which implies she was meeting up with Cyrus that night. Remember this is the same night of the Fields dinner 5.07.

Ali told Emily she didn’t know 'A’ found Cyrus in last night’s episode but she was seen speaking to Cyrus at night in 5.05 the same night that Aria and Ezra spotted her.

She also told Emily that she had a plan, this was before Emily broke up with her. I believe Ali was telling her the truth about her having a plan because as we all know 'A’ sees everything and I’m pretty damn sure 'A’ saw Ali leave her house that night (5.05) while she was standing out in the open talking to Cyrus in front of her father’s business. We noticed a guy in a Rosewood High jacket walking behind Aria and Ezra as they took their nightly stroll.

If Ali’s plan was put into motion on this very night then she just had to wait until 'A’ took the bait and get in touch with Cyrus, which is exactly what 'A’ did. Therefore, in 5.07 when Ali was seen sneaking out of her house dressed that way, she was on her way to meet up with Cyrus and find out info on whether or not anyone contacted him.

So once things started to heat up and she saw that 'A’ bought her plan she just had to wait it out, so she asked Cyrus to pretend to break into Ashley’s home. I don’t believe it was Noel according to what Tanner told Kenneth DiLaurentis; “A neighbor spotted him lurking outside the Marin home.” Meaning, Ali lied to the girls about the intruder being Noel Kahn.

Now here’s the interesting part, Mona was outside of the police station trying to find out who Cyrus would meet with, because she knew that she got punk’d. 'A’/Mona fell for Ali’s plan meaning Noel told Mona about Ali talking to the guy outside that night in 5.05. Hint: “He let me borrow his notes.” (5.07)

Therefore, when Mona pretended to faint at the choir audition she knew that Hanna would see the paper of Cyrus in her purse, because “we all know these bitches can’t keep a secret.” Mona knew Hanna would follow her just as Spencer did in 3.21.

So as Ali was following her plan through Mona’s plan of getting the Liars away from Ali was smooth sailing. Remember this from 5.05:

  • 'They don’t want things to go back to the way they were.’
  • They remember how she treated them,like they were her dolls.
  • Good then we can finally get rid of her.

Jenna, Mona, and Sydney have been playing the girls against Ali since 5.05 and Ali have been trying to protect the girls story about New York by lying and covering their tracks because like it or not Ali truly love her friends and Mona knows that as long as Ali have her friends she’ll want to stay in Rosewood … but Mona doesn’t realize that Ali will fight for her friends. This will lead to the 5.12 Summer Fatale Finale episode synopsis that states that the Liars will team with Mona and Ali will form her own team. 

We know Mrs D hated Cece as we've seen in flashbacks; maybe Mrs. D hired someone to kill Cece that night and thats why she told Ali not to go out… as she waited for the job to get done, she saw the killer accidently hit Ali instead of Cece due to the yellow top… thats why Mrs. D freaked out saying "what have you done"!? And she proceeded to bury Ali because it was actualy her own fault. So she's not protecting anyone but herself and that email is something totally different and is another twist the writers will throw at us.

Melissa Hastings

Let’s take another look at her.

First, she is surrounded by mystery, lies and secrets.

She’s the oldest sister. When she is introduced to us, she’s engaged to Wren, a med student, who rather quickly became attracted to Spencer. Almost too quickly. Which leads us to a flashback that another prior boyfriend, Ian, was attracted to her younger sister.

Let’s put ourselves in Melissa’s position. Two love interests kissed her younger sister. But wait, it gets better. Turns out Ian was messing around with Alison. At this time, the girls were 13/14. And he and his friends, Jason and Garret and mystery guy was videotaping them all. Gross.

When Melissa found Ian with Alison, why didn’t she dump his “a” right then and there and report all of this? No. She forgave him but gave him an ultimatum that if he didn’t stop seeing Ali, somebody would get hurt. Next thing we know, we see a video of her, on that night busting into Alison’s room on Ian, Garret and Jenna, demanding to know “Where is she?” Obviously angry. You can’t tell me that her and Alison did not meet up that night. Jason saw Melissa and so did Byron. Jason thinks he saw her with CeCe but what if it really was Alison? These two have been confused before. I think there is a confrontation we are missing and that’s the one between Melissa and Alison.

Melissa also had a “thing” with Jason who turns out to be her half sibling due to Peter’s affair with Jessica. And, guess what it just so happens Jason had a thing for Aria. Another one of her sister’s friends. No wonder Melissa calls them bitches. Every guy she knew had a thing for one or more of them.

The age difference at this time is critical in my opinion. They were 8th graders. And Melissa and her NAT friends were in college, about to graduate college. 13/14 year olds with 21/22 year olds.

After Wren is caught with Spencer, she cozied up with Ian again. Then the whole bell tower thing. Was it really Alison that pushed him or Melissa? I’m not convinced it was Alison just yet.

After Ian’s death, she cozies up to Garret (who also has a thing for younger girls…Jenna). He supposedly takes her to her ob/gyn appointments. Was she ever really pregnant? If not, why did she lie about it. Is it a clue or an alibi. Like the text, “Married for Love or an Alibi?”

Then, Garret dies in the train just when he was about to tell Spencer the truth. He claimed that he was only protecting her. Melissa tells her the same thing. Melissa also wears the same costume as Wilden’s. This has never been explained. I mean like Spencer said “that must have been awkward.” Aria was targeted in the train and she was trapped with Garret’s dead body.

Melissa is at almost every big A event. Homecoming, Masquerade Ball as Black Swan, Lodge Fire (she was scheming with Jenna and Shana), Halloween train, dressed as Queen of Hearts, etc. She shows up at just the “right” time or leaves at just the “right” time.

In Season 4, Ezra is very irate with someone in a car that looked alot like Melissa. Jake saw them. Told Aria. Then Jake had his knife present. Could that have been Melissa? Ezra could have told Melissa they were seen. We’ve seen Melissa waving a knife around in the Hastings’ kitchen quite a few times.

Another time in Season 5A, Spencer has grown suspicious of Melissa and borrows Ezra’s spy equipment. He seems hesitant and tries to warn her in a subtle way. Next we see the back of someone who looks a lot like Ezra show up. The person never showed their face like they knew they were being watched.

The Wren/Ezra connections are present and have been seen. And Wren and Melissa are still involved after everything. So it stands to reason Ezra and Melissa have a connection too. This trio are top suspects for me.

Melissa has been linked to Ian, Wren, Lucas, Jenna, Shana, Garret, CeCe, Wilden, Alison, Mona, Toby potentially Ezra, and of course the liars. She called them a “posse”. So did Toby. We know Toby was A team and we know he supposedly went to London to see her. They both lied about that story. Did he see her or didn’t he?

Who is dead so far? Shana, Garret, Wilden and Mona

Who is locked up? Alison - she hates her

Who is about to be framed? Hanna - Hanna always points the finger at Melissa but Spencer always covers or shifts the topic.

ATeam - Mona, Shana, (dead) Jenna, Lucas

NAT - Garrett, Ian (dead), Jason and a mystery guy

possible ATeam/NAT - Wilden (dead), Ezra, Wren (out of the country)

Melissa is connected to both ATeam and NAT club and HATES Alison. She’s not crazy about the liars. She’s always condescending to them. She treats Spencer horribly but claims to be protecting her.

Melissa has worn a single Leopard scarf. It has been said that leopard is a clue from 4x19 Shadow Play at the end.

Her laptop has matched As laptop.

She has a red coat. (It was hers that Aria tried on when they went to Brookhaven and Duncan saw her)

She has carried a large beige purse.

She’s of drinking age.

She likes that toffee flavored yogurt Aria had. So that links Aria, Melissa and Mona to the toffee clue. Maybe it was Melissa that visited Mona at Radley in a red coat.

The voice (Bethany) on the recording at Radley sounded soooooo much like Melissa.

It’s been stated that Melissa scored higher on her IQ test than Spencer. Could Melissa really be younger than we think? If she’s that smart she could have skipped some grades. Which could mean she has a twin?

Either way A is super smart. So is Melissa. Her mom and dad are very protective of her and seem to always side with her. Maybe they know how fragile she is. Maybe Melissa spent some time in Radley.

Melissa knows way more about everything. And people she is connected to winds up dead or in jail. (Ian, Garret, Wilden, Shana, Mona, Alison)

Where is she now? She supposedly confessed to Spencer but she didn’t say everything.

Melissa has suffered a broken heart repeatedly by her younger sister and friends. She has the motive.

I also want to know what the connect is to Ezra. I believe there is one. If that’s the case then that’s yet another guy who went for two of her sister’s young friends, Alison and Aria.

When you lay it out like this, Melissa looks like a good candidate for Black Widow. Or maybe her “twin”. Melissa seems to go from super mean to more calm. She definitely has a hot temper. Maybe she does have a twin that killed someone and that’s what she told her father and something he would not want Veronica to know about. (Not 100% on Melissa twin theory)

Alison told Spencer once that she deserved at least one good sister. Made it sound like she had more than one sister and they were all bad. So Spencer or Melissa could have a twin.

Melissa’s story is not over. She knows too much and has revealed very little. There are a whole slew of clues that point her way and we keep being told that she is to be trusted and that she’s just protecting Spencer.

The texts the girls have received about Melissa might be a B but she’s not A material could be just a cover up.

Everyone should remember this.

There is a huge chunk of time missing out of the DiLaurentis family’s timeline.

When Peter & Veronica were still getting their degrees, he began having an affair with Jessica, who was already married to Ken at the time. They were all living in Rosewood, although Veronica had been spending her time in Boston. When they found out about the pregnancy, Jessica decided to lie to Ken and let him think that the child was his. She & Ken left rosewood, while pregnant, and moved to ATLANTA. (I’m assuming near the famous “grandma from Georgia”?). Then Peter married Veronica. He said his first time seeing Jason was when they moved back to Rosewood, and next door. And Jason was outside riding his bike. He said Spencer was 5 years old at this time.

If Spencer was 5, and Jason is 7 years older… Then he would have been 12.

That literally means that 12 YEARS (or a little more, counting the months of pregnancy) had went by without Peter seeing them at all. 

However, we now know that they were NOT in Georgia for that whole time though. Because the video of Mrs. D and the boys was recorded outside of the Campbell Apple Farm/Orchard… Right there in Pennsylvania. (I’m assuming not far from Rosewood).

So what had happened during these 12 years of absence from Rosewood itself? They were obviously near the area, but never returned until Jason was 12 and Ali was 5. 

There could very well be another boy… Charles. He could be Jason’s twin. Or he could be a little younger, maybe by a year or two. I personally think that those boys don’t look 7 years old… So I’m not even entirely sure that the baby girl Jessica was holding was Ali. Maybe she had another affair going on with someone else? Andrew’s Father? Would this be why they were at the Campbell farm? If this is the case… then maybe only one of the boys in the video were actually hers. Maybe one was Jason, but maybe the other was Charles… Charles Campbell. And maybe that little girl was Bethany. Because if those boys weren’t actually 7 (because I think they look closer to 4 or 5), then the timing/age would match up better with Bethany’s age. She is a couple years older than the Liar’s, and a few years younger than the NAT club members. So if the boys were only 4 or 5 in that video, then that could have been Bethany. Than a couple years later, she would have actually had Ali. And Jason/Charles would have been 7 by then. I think that Bethany Young is not her real name. I think it may be Campbell.

If this is the case, then maybe Charles is Wren? He’s the only older male character that we don’t really know much about his past. So it leaves an open option for the PLL Writers to work in a new story line. And maybe Andrew was born a couple years after Bethany, which would line him up with being the same age as Ali & the other Liars. But Bethany was put in Radley, (due to reasons that I have no clue of yet), and Charles had several issues as well. I feel like Maybe he was taken away from Bethany first. Remember, she had drawn a photo of a girl running after a demon-figure who was carrying away a boy. Maybe he was put in Radley before she was? And this is what drove Bethany to being insane, which caused her to be put in Radley. Maybe by the time she got to Radley, he had already gotten out somehow, and they had no idea where he had went. And maybe she blamed Mrs. D for this, which is why Bethany had so much resentment towards her. And with Andrew being born younger than both Bethany & Charles… maybe he has no memory of either of them. Afterall, he was basically living as an only child at that point. With a sister in Radley that he doesn’t know about, and a brother out who-knows-where that he doesn’t know about.

But maybe he somehow starts catching on, and figures it out somehow. Maybe that’s what he’s currently digging into. And that’s why he seems so shady… he’s just now realizing he has these siblings, and he’s trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.


I change my mind all the time. But as of right now, that’s where my head is at. What are your thoughts?!
