This is a theory pointing out that Jenna Marshall was the other/true Red Coat. I believe she was on the A-Team since Charlotte’s rise as Big “A”, and I believe Sara Harvey was only a decoy like Charlotte stated.
First of all, I am going to start with the fact that Jenna went to Noel Kahn’s Halloween party in 2x13 (”The First Secret”; the prequel episode) as Lady Gaga… in a red, hooded outfit. You may think that it means nothing, but nothing is really a coincidence in Rosewood. Foreshadowing much?
At that party, she met Mona and they befriended each other, becoming friends seemingly. This, to me, says it all. This is when Mona knew she could turn Jenna against Alison.
I’d also like to point out that Jenna usually wears ‘Jungle Red’ lipstick. I am assuming it is her favorite color. After all, it was Alison’s signature color too.
Jenna was working in two different divisions, and in both, she tried to take down the Liars—the “A-Team” and “Melissa’s Alliance” (with Shana). When we saw Jenna with Melissa and Shana in 3x24 (”A dAngerous gAme”) while Charlotte was plotting against the Liars at the lodge, Charlotte had to bring in a decoy Red Coat… which was Sara Harvey. Jenna and Sara never met though until Season 7 when they knew they both assisted Charlotte in her gAme.
No one other than Jenna has had a stronger reason to hate the Liars. They BLINDED her! I’d be pretty pissed too, even if it was an accident. Jenna came to Rosewood as the new girl who just wanted to make friends. Alison, being the bitch she was, decided to instantly hate Jenna only because she turned down her offer to join her group (the Liars). Yes, Jenna may have sorta forced her step-brother into relations with her, but that was an mistake. Like Jenna says, “We all make mistakes that we’re not proud of.”
Jenna turned into the way she is today because of Alison and the Liars. THEY damaged her! She didn’t do it to herself. She couldn’t forgive them for what they did to her. And to think they’ve still gotten away with it disgusts me a little. Since then, Jenna has wanted revenge. She became Red Coat and assisted Charlotte to take them down.
Remember Emily’s disappearance in 3x01 (”It Happened ‘That Night’”), and that Jenna had “rescued” her? She didn’t rescue her. Jenna was there that night digging up Alison’s grave with Charlotte. Jenna claimed she had found Emily drunk and lonely, so she put her in the car. Emily didn’t remember anything that happened that night until it slowly came back to her. She recalled being in Jenna’s car… and Jenna was wearing, somewhat, a red coat!
Jenna was seen putting her hair up while driving the car, but why? Because she was wearing a blonde wig as RC!
In 4x01 (”’A’ is for A-l-i-v-e”), we see Jenna going to Wilden’s funeral with a man named Nigel. Later on in 4x07 (”Crash and Burn, Girl!”), Toby and Caleb go to see Nigel for answers towards the “girl in the red coat”. Nigel claims he was paid by CeCe Drake, who is Charlotte. Who says he wasn’t protecting Jenna by revealing her partner’s identity instead of hers?
He was later seen having a drink with a girl he called “babe”, who I think was Jenna. There were dark glasses sitting on the table, hinting towards it being Jenna. Toby and Caleb found out he was the pilot of the plane Red Coat was seen getting off of at the lodge fire. The lodge fire makes perfect sense when it comes to Jenna. The Liars blinded her with a stink bomb that started a fire. Maybe Jenna wanted the same to happen to them?
In 3x24, the episode that has the lodge fire incident, we see “A” sending Jenna a message, saying: “32 Rte 6. Be there at 9 tonight. -A”. Was Charlotte telling her where to go?
I found something quite convincing. When I. Marlene King was responding to a fan regarding Red Coat on Twitter back in 2013, she said this:
Jenna could easily walk in heels like that when she was supposedly turning blind again, and possibly run in them, as shown in 3x24:
Jenna is a great liar. She’s a master at lying like Charlotte. We now know that they were good friends, but Shana revealed to Spencer in 4x09 (”Into the Deep”) that Jenna was afraid of CeCe/Charlotte. What if this was a cover-up? We know that Nigel protected Jenna, so Shana probably did too. Or maybe Jenna was afraid of Charlotte because she knew her intentions and what she was capable of, yet she still played the game with her. Marlene said that Charlotte was the one who hit Jenna and left her to drown in 4x09. I believe this wasn’t true. It was another cover-up. It also doesn’t make sense with the timeline now that we know Charlotte and Jenna were friends.
Jenna was Red Coat most of the time and the only time Charlotte was Red Coat was in 4x12 (”Now You See Me, Now You Don’t”) when she was used as a decoy to distract the Liars from Alison, and also when Red Coat crept into the DiLaurentis home and snuck into the basement. Those were the only times she was Red Coat. The rest was Jenna. Sara was only Red Coat when Charlotte needed her to be. She was a decoy like she said she was. Charlotte protected Jenna. We know that Jenna is working with A.D. to bring down the Liars, and she wants to find Charlotte’s killer. She was definitely good friends with her and working with her at some point if she wasn’t Red Coat.
I’d like to point out that Red Coat started appearing when Jenna got her sight back, and then disappeared again when Jenna lost her sight. Coincidence? We saw Wren in 4x10 (”The Mirror Has Three Faces”) coloring in a red coat onto his picture of a long-haired brunette. Many fans have suspected Wren of being involved with the A-Team. Was this hinting towards Jenna being RC? Maybe he knew?
I could go on and on, but I believe Jenna was always the real Red Coat. She is endgame.
I’m not talking about CeCe, Alison, or Sara Harvey. I’m talking about a totally different new person. She has been the one in charge. She’s the final A.
She was the one that helped Mona get out of Radley. This wasn’t Charlotte because Charlotte needed Mona to get out of Radley. Uber A was visiting Mona using the visitor’s pass with the name “CeCe Drake” that Wren authorized. She’s endgame
GUYS I HAVE FIGURED OUT THE WHOLE SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have developed a
theory that stemmed from looking carefully at Bethany’s drawings from Radley. It’s
pretty crazy, and very long and detailed. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!! I sincerely believe I figured out EVERYTHING.
Sit back, relax, and ENJOY! XOX
This next part I
briefly posted about the other day, but now I’m going to build on it in a MAJOR way, so continue reading!!
Bethany drew this
picture in Radley:
building in the background looks like the front of the Blind School at 1465 Elm
Street that we saw for the first time in, “The Darkest Knight.”
The moment they lingered on the front of the Blind School in the
finale, ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT was how it looked so similar to Bethany’s
Let’s analyze Bethany’s drawing. It seems to be a little boy
being taken away from the school by a masked figure, and a little girl (probably
herself) chasing after them.
Before this episode, there have been a few mentions of other Blind Schools. In 2x16, Let the Water Hold Me Down, Spencer finds the rehab center for the blind that Jenna went to after she was blinded by the Liars and Alison.
Spencer goes in but the women at the front desk says she cant divulge any patient information. As Spencer turns to leave, another patient tells her that he knows Jenna, and that she was really motivated during her rehab stay. Spencer steals the sign-in book on her way out and shows the girls. They see that Garrett signed Jenna out the day Ali was ‘murdered.’
In 3x3, “Kingdom of the Blind,’ Aria and Jenna play “In the Eye Abides the Heart,” and Aria steals a post-it from Jenna’s house. The girls follow Jenna to a gun store called H.COBB GUNS-N-AMMO. She then leaves and proceeds to drive her car. Hanna confronts her. Jenna tells the girls she’s been able to see from the first operation. She didn’t tell anyone because it was her “only protection.”
Side note: It is interesting to note that Jenna has almost been murdered twice throughout the series: Once in 2x23, “Eye of the Beholder,” by being lured by A into Jason’s house that was set on fire (Hanna saves her). And in 4x9 “Into the Deep,” after being knocked unconscious and left in a lake to drown by supposedly Charlotte.
Before the A ending of this episode, Mona is shown in a hospital bed in Radley singing “In the Eye Abides the Heart.” There is a queen of hearts in her right hand. Could this signify that Aria or Jenna is the QoH? Remember who we KNOW was dressed as the QoH on the Halloween Train- WILDEN.
In the eye abides the heart. Every pure and tender feeling, All emotions worth revealing, Through the eyes their charm impart. Words are often clothed in guile; For the lips with fear my falter: E'en confiding smiles may alter Oh! believe not in a smile! ‘Tis the eye unveils the heart. Every pure and tender feeling, All emotions worth revealing, To the eyes their glow impart. If thy bosom heaves a sigh For a fair and cherished maiden, Though her voice with love be laden, Mark the language of her eye There each impulse of her soul Beams for thee in truth and candor; There her secret passions wander, There remain beyond control.
The episode ends with A pouring a glass of vodka while making a necklace with ‘Alison's’ teeth. A body bag is shown in the freezer. A is seen unzipping the bag before the screen cuts to black. I believe this is when A manipulates the dental records to make it seem like the body is Bethany Young’s. I think the body is the real Sara Harvey’s and the character we know as Sara Harvey is really Bethany Young.
So as you can see, the PLL story has revolved around eyes, vision and blindness.
‘I SEE YOU’ has been written on their cars twice
There was the ‘eyes’ billboard
A has been referred to as “Pretty Eyes” multiple times
An eye was the symbol that was stamped on the wrist of anyone who attended the Kahn’s parties, and was on the box that the girls found the flashdrive of the Dollhouse in “The Wrath of Kahn.”
We have frequently seen an eyeball looking out of a hole
A see’s EVERYTHING, watches everything.
And many titles of the episodes are related to eyes, blindness, etc.
So what is with all of these vision references?????
After I realized that the first photo Bethany drew could be of the Blind School that the girls went to at the end of the summer finale, I decided to look further into her other drawings.
This next one is of Jessica, notice that her EYES are scratched out.
The eyes are completely black in this strange painting as well.
So what is the deal here? Do Bethany’s drawings point to the fact the the Blind School is more important than we originally believed it to be?
Lets go back to that original drawing again:
I think that the boy being taken away from the Blind School is Charles Drake, and the girl chasing after them is Bethany Young. In ‘The Darkest Knight’ when the girls go into the room with all the baby dolls in the cribs, a crazy thought came to me. What if the Blind School is
in fact a front for the illegal selling of children. I know this is nuts, but stay with me.
Why on earth would a Blind School have rows and rows of cribs/incubators? I do not think they were using that room to only teach blind people how to take care of children. Let’s remember that Dr. Cochran hinted that he did some shady things with the babies that were born in Radley. Things he wasn’t proud of, to the extend that he is estranged from his daughter, lives in hiding, and is an alcoholic.
Let’s assume Dr. Cochran is the liaison between the babies born in Radley, and the illegal adoption of children out of the Blind School. Mary gave birth to Charles in Radley, and taken to the Blind School by Dr.
Cochran to be put up for adoption. One day, Charles is adopted and taken out of the School. Bethany had become
very close him, considered him a brother because they grew up together, and was
heartbroken when they were separated. Time passes and Bethany is never adopted.
She develops a mental illness, and is put into Radley. Mary also gave
birth Charlotte in Radley (who has always been a girl). Lastly, she gave birth to Spencer while in Radley, and Spencer was illegally sold to the
Hastings through the Blind School. I think the dream Spencer had dancing around the bath tubs, was actually
in the Blind School, not Radley.
***I believe the character that we know as Sara Harvey, is NOT the real Sara Harvey. She is actually Bethany Young. So anytime I mention Bethany for now on- she is the infamous Shower queen:
Jessica DiLaurentis marries Kenneth, but has an affair with Mr.
Hastings and gives birth to Jason. She adopts Mary’s first child that was born in Radley, Charles from the Blind School. Like I said, Dr. Cochran was the liaison between
the children born in Radley, and the Blind School that sells babies. We know
Noel Kahn’s father was the “judge” that signed off on the adoptions, so that
may be how the Kahn’s made all their money, selling babies on the black market,
AND would explain why Noel is wrapped up in all of it. AND would explain why an EYE is the symbol on his party stamps.
Mary gives birth to Charlotte in Radley, she is never adopted in the Blind School, shows signs of mental illness and is put into Radley. A few years later, Ali was born.
This video, shown in the dollhouse, is of Jessica with her new baby Alison, and Charles and Jason.
A few months later, little Charles puts Ali in
the bathtub one day to try to get her to stop crying. Kenneth freaks out, and
demands that he be put into Radley. Jessica is heart broken, but agrees and decides to get on the
board of Radley so she can watch over him. Bethany and Charles are
Around the same time Ali is born, Mary gives birth to her THIRD child in Radley, Spencer. Mary either had an affair with Mr. Hastings OR
Jessica suggested that Mr. Hastings should adopt Spencer.
Jessica feels terrible that she had to put Charles into Radley, and decides to find another family to adopt him.
Originally when I was
coming up with this theory, I thought Charles was either Ezra Fitz or Wren Kingston. But it cannot be either of them because Ezra hooked up with Alison
which would be his first cousin, and Wren hooked up with Spencer and that would
be his sister. So for the sake of this theory making sense and not including
incest, I think the only person A.D. could be is Officer Darren Wilden.
So now for the second time, Charles is taken away from Bethany
and she is ENRAGED. She drew the picture of Jessica with her eyes scratched out that we spoke about before, with LIAR written all over it:
Bethany HATES Jessica. She took Charles away from her
in the Blind School, and then again by getting him adopted into another family.
Jessica is aware that Bethany knows about the illegal selling of children
at the Blind School, so Bethany blackmails her. In order to keep Bethany quiet,
Jessica buys her clothes (that’s who the second yellow dress hidden in the
piano is for), takes her to the horse stables, and has Bethany call her Aunt
Jessie. Bethany and Charles sister, Charlotte, grew up in Radley together and become best friends. They both become insanely jealous of Alison over the years, for
getting to live a normal life while they spent their childhood in the Blind School
and then grew up in Radley.
Jessica still keeps in touch with the family that adopted Charles because she loves him like a son. She even brings her children, Ali and Jason, to his birthday party, saying it is for their cousin “Freddy.”
This video is of Jason - Charles (Wilden) - Alison
CHARLES– looks SO MUCH like Wilden.
Even their hair is parted in the same exact way.
Many years go by and Charles eventually finds out who he really is. He reconnects with Bethany, and meets Charlotte- eventually finding out (through his job as a police officer) that she is his sister. They decide they need to get revenge on the entire DiLaurentis family.
Charlotte is also blackmailing Jessica, and uses her to get out-privileges to go to classes at UPenn and get dirt on Alison and the DiLaurentis family. She even goes as far as becoming Jason’s ‘girlfriend,’ and Alison’s best friend.
In a crazy twist of fate, around the same time, the Liars & Alison blind Jenna by throwing the stink bomb into the garage. Jenna starts going to the Blind Rehab Center, becomes close with Noel Kahn, and finds out the truth about the sordid past at the school on Elm Street.
Wilden became a cop because he will have access to everyone and everything. He has been
sending Ali the A texts for awhile now.
On “that night” he helped Bethany and Charlotte escape and
they plan to kill Ali in front of Jessica in revenge. Ali turned into a
spoiled, bitchy girl, when she grew up with all the luxury in the world. That,
coupled with their jealousy, makes them want to kill her. They also know this
would cause Jessica the most possible pain.
Since Jessica is still buying Bethany clothes, (probably the
same clothes she buys Ali) Bethany happens to be wearing the same yellow top as
Alison that night.
Jessica gets a call from
Radley that Bethany has escaped, which is why she didn’t want Ali to go out
that night. Bethany hits Ali with the rock, which Jessica sees through the
window. Jessica buries Alison, thinking she is dead. She knows she cannot tell
the police what happened because of the blackmail Bethany has been holding over
Grunwald pulls Ali out of the ground and Ali flees.
This same night, a girl named Sara Harvey ran away from home.
She was also blonde and similar in stature to Ali. Mona, who has been bullied by Ali for years, hit Sara over the head with a shovel, thinking she is Alison. Melissa comes across Sara’s dead body (who she also thinks is Alison),
and thinking Spencer killed her, buried her in the grave Ali was in earlier
Charles, Bethany, and Charlotte believe that Ali is dead in the grave under the gazebo on the DiLaurentis property. They don’t know
that she escaped and went into hiding.
Everyone, including the Liars, think Alison is a missing person.
Melissa, Charles, Charlotte, Bethany, and Jessica all think she is DEAD.
When Maya’s family moves into
the DiLaurentis house and decide to do some remodeling, they discover the dead body buried under the gazebo. The police are called in.
Charles (WILDEN) is a cop and has access to the body. He see’s through dental records, that the body is of a girl named Sara Harvey, the dead body is NOT Ali. He decides to switch the dental records with Ali’s so it looked like
Ali was dead, and no one would go looking for her. NOW WHO WOULD BE THE ONLY ONE ABLE TO DO THAT? A cop!!!!
Jessica is brought in to identify the body, and she either pretends it’s Ali’s out of fear and confusion, OR because Charles forces her to.
Charles also forces her to dig a grave and to tell Kenneth, and his biological mother Mary, that he has died. He doesn’t want anyone to find out his true identity.
But now clues start coming that Ali is alive. Charles
(Wilden) aggressively tries to find her. He is always accusing the Liars,
hoping he will scare them into spilling anything they know. That’s why he
started sending the Liars the A texts, to try to blackmail/torture/scare them into giving
him information. He belibes they know where Ali is, and are helping her stay hidden, and develops a deep hatred for them. He enlists help from people that hate Ali, like Mona, who give him info on the girls and Ali.
When the cops are forced to reexamine the corpse, they find that
it is Bethany Young. ONCE AGAIN Wilden messed with the dental
records. The dead girl who was killed that night was the REAL Sara Harvey. She
has been dead the whole entire time. Wilden switched it so it would look like
Bethany Young was dead (just like he did with his true identity), so she could be freed from Radley and that he could protect
her and no one would look for them or suspect them. They are the king and queen of the A Team.
Charles/Wilden is Black Hoodie
Bethany/Sara is Red Coat
Charlotte/CeCe is Black Veil
They had many plans set in case they got caught. The first being that Mona would take the fall for being A. She would be in Radley with CeCe to protect her. Remember what she said was she was brought into Radley?
What WE want. Meaning her, Charles, Bethany, and CeCe.
So quick recap before we continue:
Charles Drake is the character we know as Darren Wilden
Bethany Young is the character we know as Sara Harvey
Charlotte Drake is Charles younger sister (she was NEVER a boy)
Now that it has been discovered that Ali is not dead, the police start to look for her. Noel is helping Ali stay hidden at this time because she was blackmailing him. But as we know, eventually Noel AND Jenna, are on the A team working against Ali and the Liars.
Charlotte eventually finds out where Ali is, and that she is planning to come back to Rosewood. Charlotte, Bethany and Charles devise a plan: They don’t know if Ali saw them the night they tried to kill her, and they can’t risk her coming back and telling the cops on them.
First, Charles instructs Charlotte to go see Ali, and then to use her Vivian Darkbloom identity to get out of the country so she will be safe.
He tells Bethany to murder Jessica DiLaurentis, because she is the only one who knows the truth about all of them, and they all hate her. Bethany is safe because the world thinks she is dead.
Finally, Charles decides to fake his own (Wilden’s) death so he will be safe as well. He killed a man with a similar body type to himself, and put the Wilden mask on his face. First of all we know that there are insanely real looking masks in play in this show. We later see Rollins was wearing a WILDEN mask. We know it was a PERFECT mask of his face.
WHY WAS ROLLINS WEARING THE MASK OF WILDEN OF ALL PEOPLE? Because Wilden is Uber A. Rollins is another one of his minions (will get back to that later).
This is the dead body of a man Wilden murdered. He just put a mask of his own face on the body.
Charlotte is waiting out her time in London, while Charles and Bethany continue to monitor the girls in Rosewood.
This is Charles and Bethany (Characters we know as Wilden & Sara)
Time goes by and Charles (with the help of Charlotte and Bethany) continue to torture the girls and Ali. They try to kill her countless times but fail. They decide the ultimate revenge would be for Ali to get convicted of murder, and spend her life in jail. They set the plan to make it look like Mona was murdered. Mona is in on this whole thing.
Their plan works, and Ali goes to jail on a murder charge.
They decide to build a Dollhouse they will use to torture the remaining Liars for the rest of their lives. (They hate the girls so much because of their loyalty to Alison). Noel and Jenna help.
They devise a plan just in case anything goes wrong. Charlotte would pretend to be Charles DiLaurentis (the transgender son of JESSICA), and tell the crazy story to gain sympathy and avoid jail time. The only person who could prove this was a lie is dead (Jessica). Bethany would pretend to be Sara Harvey, a runaway girl who was kept prisoner there. Mona will pretend that she was brainwashed into believing she was Ali, & drugged and tortured in the Dollhouse. And she should act like she is trying to help the girls, so if anything goes wrong they don’t suspect she was part of it.
And Charles would escape without anyone knowing.
They successfully kidnap the girls and bring them to the Dollhouse. Charles decides that he wants the girls to organize a prom for him as their last act. He plans on killing them with poisonous gas afterwards. He gives Mona a gas mask so that she will survive. If all goes well this will be the end of their revenge. All the girls will die in the Dollhouse, and Ali will spend the rest of her life in prison.
As we know, none of this goes as plan, and the girls escape and Mona, Charlotte and Bethany are forced to stick to the plan they devised as a fail-safe. Bethany pretends shes Sara, and Mona pretends she was abducted, brainwashed, and held captive.
Bethany pretends to have a crush on Emily to stay close to the girls, and Charles, Bethany and Charlotte try one more time to end it all. Charlotte abducts Ali from the Ice Ball, taking along Kenneth and Jason to make her fake story seem legitimate. Mona and Bethany lure the girls to the Carassimi Group Lair, and they plan to blow them all up.
Bethany burns her hands and this plan fails as well. Charlotte is forced to pretends she is Charles and that the game is over.
Ali is released from prison, Charlotte is admitted to Welby, and the game stops for 5 years.
Over this time, Charles reconnects with his birth mother, Mary. He finds out that Spencer is his other sister. Mary is now helping Charles, Bethany and Charlotte with everything.
Charles arranges fake doctor ID for Charlotte’s boyfriend, Archer Dunhill (Elliot Rollins) and instructs him to take care of Charlotte in Welby. Charles instructs Archer to make Ali fall in love with him as well, so they can plan their ultimate revenge. They have to put the game on hold for the 5 years that Charlotte is in Welby.
The girls all come back to Rosewood and Charlotte is released. Archer succeeds in making Ali fall in love with him, and they marry.
Then something goes VERY WRONG. Someone murders Charlotte. Charles is devastated and ENRAGED. He vows to find out who killed his beloved sister.
He starts to use the name ‘A.D’ instead of ‘A’, which stands for AFTER DEATH, in honor of his dead sister.
Bethany Young moves into the Radley, which is now a hotel, to be close to the action.
He thinks one of the girls killed Charlotte, and starts to send them messages again.
Meanwhile, Mary and Archer dress up as Jessica and Wilden to make Alison think she is going crazy. Their plan works and she admits herself into Welby.
Hanna pretends it was her, and goes to the Lost Woods to turn herself in (but her and the other Liars are just trying to catch A.D). Their plan goes arry (BECAUSE MONA TELLS A.D. WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING) and is abducted by A.D. A.D tortures her in the cabin trying to get information out of her.
The Liars start to believe that Ali killed Charlotte, and use the sweater as evidence to get Hanna back.
Charles uses police tools he still has at his disposal to check the sweater for evidence that Ali killed Charlotte. But he doesn’t find anything.
Isn’t it interesting that when Charles sends the sweater back to Ali he writes “I couldn’t find A SHRED OF EVIDENCE.”
Who talks like this? A POLICE OFFICER!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, When Hanna escapes from the cabin, Mary Drake picks her up. Although she understands her sons need for revenge, she truly feels bad for what he put Hanna through. She also wants to be around her other daughter-Spencer.
Charles instructs Archer to drug and torture Ali in Welby, so everyone thinks she is insane and she can never escape.
After Charles realizes that the girls know what Archer is doing, he tells her to take her out of Welby and murder her in the woods. Obviously this goes wrong as well, an Archer is killed.
Now Ali is back home one again. Charles tells Mary to move into the house to watch her.
Isn’t it SO INTERESTING that that A.D dressed up as a COP when he went into the house and tried to kill Ali??? Wilden is 10000% A.D and Charles.
He has Bethany call Jenna and Noel to help them with their mission. The only people who know A.D’s true identity are Bethany and Charlotte. All the rest are helpers, but have NEVER seen his face.
Something goes really wrong AGAIN when Bethany is murdered in the bathtub.
I think their are two teams at work here. One is trying to protect the girls (whoever killed Charlotte and Bethany) and then the other is torturing them.
Now A.D has lost Red Coat AND Black Veil. He is all alone.
He instructs Noel to find out for sure if Spencer is his other sister. That’s why Noel had Mary’s DNA and was trying to contact Dr. Cochran, who helped sell Spencer.
The girls end up at Aunt Carol’s WHERE THE EMPTY GRAVE OF CHARLES WAS, and goes into the Lair. That lair was NOT Jessica’s. It was his.
He blows it up so they cannot find any evidence. He threatens that if they find out who he is before he finds out who killed Charlotte, he will kill them all.
Then disaster strikes when the girls find the USB of footage from the Dollhouse in Noel’s things. He has Noel break into Spencer’s house and take it back.
But then Hanna abducts Noel. Charles is relieved when Hanna calls Mona for help. He instructs Mona to retrieve the USB. Mona isn’t able to do that without Hanna realizing she is on the A team, so she convinces Hanna to go back to Rosewood. When Hanna leaves, she lets Noel go, and gives the video of what Hanna did to Noel to Charles. Charles blackmails them into bringing the USB to the Blind School-WHERE IT ALL STARTED. Where they were sold as babies!!!
The girls put the USB on the table, and A.D takes it right away. He instructs Noel and Jenna to kill them all because he doesn’t know what they saw. Mary is there as well. But then Noel is decapitated when he is trying to kill them. Jenna blindly tries to kill them, but ends up shooting Spencer.
Mary intervenes at this point, because she cannot bare to watch her daughter die.
A.D pulls Jenna out of the house. Once again, the girls have escaped, and he needs to make a new plan.
The HUGE missing question: Who is Charles, Charlotte and Spencer’s biological father?
I can’t wait to see what happens next! 7 more months!!!
It has taken me forever to write this theory, I know it’s crazy but I really think this could be it. Please let me know what you think.
What I’m about to say, I don’t believe has been said in any
other theory before. Yes, there is a twin, an identical twin… And it is someone
we have met, someone we think we know very well and yet don’t know at all.
There are three. Bethany, Courtney, and Charlotte. All identical, only two are
twins, Charlotte is a doppelgänger of both identical twins so you could say…
There are triplets among us, at least there used to be.
Charlotte never meant to hurt anyone, she never did- in
fact, the only things she did usually ended with no one dying, and yet someone…
Someone out there was a cold-blooded murderer. That person is still out there. That
person is who I’m going to name “Courtney” (an ode to the books!).
She killed Jessica. She killed Ian. She killed Garret. She killed
Charlotte. She corrupted and tried to kill Alison. She met with Melissa. She
had the visitors pass. She lived in the haunted house. She went to UPenn. Everything
Charlotte didn’t admit to, Courtney was behind it. She was behind it all. It
was said that Bethany Young was 20 when she died, making her and Courtney two
years younger than Charlotte. Charlotte isn’t the one with the twin, Bethany
and Courtney are identical twins and they look EXACTLY like Charlotte, and I’m
going to prove it.
Lets start at the beginning, the twins story- this is the
story of Bethany and Courtney. We originally thought that Charlotte was the one
with the twin, that the other girl represented Alison… It sounded right but
didn’t really fit, Charlotte never caused any intentional harm to Alison-
therefore she couldn’t be one of the twins. We knew one of them was crazy
enough to stab the other over a doll, that one of them was sent to Radley, and
one of them was dead. Now, in the story- they never said the other twin died
after the stabbing, it is merely assumed she died from the wounds.
Both twins survived, one was insane- the other was not. The
dead twin that we see over and over repeatedly tells us that her sister keeps
telling lies to her parents about her, I think it’s quite possible that Courtney
stabbed herself to get Bethany thrown into Radley. In 3x13, the dead twin shows
up again- she says she called her mother and asked to go home but her mother
started crying. The dead twin then says her sister tells lies about her-
telling her parents she ran away, that they fight all the time.
This could be interpreted as Courtney telling her parents
that Bethany ran away from Radley when she was actually murdered.
How do I know that
Bethany was the non-violent twin? The tapes. The tapes that were recorded
during Bethany’s stay at Radley.
“She’s a bitch. She’s
an evil bitch. I don’t mean nasty or rude, I mean evil! Without a soul! You
could be the nicest person in the world, she gets them to do anything she
wants! 5 minutes with her and you’d drown a bag of kittens if she asked, 2
minutes if you’re a man!”
The person that Bethany is talking about doesn’t fit anyone
on the show that we know of, Charlotte was not evil, and I can’t stress enough
that she repeatedly uses “she” to identify this person. But… There’s more, from
another one of the tapes Bethany had been recorded on:
“Not destructive, self defense! It’s me or her, she’s not
the only one who can make plans!”
Bethany sounded like it was either her or the other- neither could live while the other
survived. (Harry Potter reference for my potterheads!)
Does that sound like someone who would just randomly push
someone off the roof and then blame it on someone else? No… Because the one who
pushed Marion off the roof wasn’t Bethany, it was Courtney. How do you think
Charlotte knew how to get in and out of Radley? Someone showed her how.
I believe Courtney snuck in and out of Radley at will to
cause trouble, that way she could do whatever she wanted and Bethany would take
the blame. She’d take the blame every single time because she wasn’t the twin
that was admitted.
Now, lets take a step back to 5x13, the Christmas episode…
While rummaging through the DiLaurentis house, Hanna found a letter, a letter
from Bethany to Alison. Does this letter sound like someone who has any intent
on hurting Alison?
This letter solves one of the biggest mysteries on the show…
The yellow tops. Courtney sent letters to Bethany pretending to be Alison, she’s
the one who bought the yellow tops, she’s the one who set everything up.
Charlotte following Bethany from Radley back to her house to protect Jessica
proves the fact that she had absolutely no idea there were more than one yellow
top out that night, in fact it proves that whoever set everything up was NOT
Charlotte but someone else.
It’s funny how Melissa and Charlotte were supposed to have
this huge relationship, yet the only time Charlotte mentions her was when it
involved the trip to Cape May. Charlotte supposedly went to UPenn with Melissa,
Melissa supposedly called Charlotte to tell her that Mona was in Radley… But
Charlotte was already IN Radley. She had never met Mona before, she knew
nothing about her, she listened to Mona talk about how happy they were that
Alison was gone… And yet, why did Charlotte need a visitors pass? Why did she
tell Melissa to notify her if Mona was ever in Radley? It’s because Charlotte
wasn’t the one using the visitors pass, it was Courtney. Courtney used
Charlotte’s “Cece Drake” alias to gallivant around, she made friends with
Melissa- corrupted Alison, and caused mass mayhem around Rosewood.
Courtney started the entire thing, from day 1. The attack on
Alison in the haunted house? It was right after the frat party, and right after
Alison started receiving messages… And ironically, right after Alison told the
twin story the first time. Courtney created destruction wherever she went, she
got people in trouble and felt no remorse whatsoever.
The fact that Charlotte, Courtney, and Bethany looked alike
worked for Courtney’s advantage, she could do whatever the hell she wanted
and one or the other would get blamed for it. That’s also why Jessica was
taking “Bethany” out, only it wasn’t Bethany, it was Courtney- she was
blackmailing Jessica for either the existence of Charlotte, or the murder of
Mrs. Cavanaugh- probably both. It was said at the stables where Jessica took
her riding that “Bethany” threw a bucket at Jessica’s head, they never came
back. Courtney then hated Jessica, she started to feed Bethany lies about
Jessica having an affair with their father… This is when Bethany’s drawings
turned dark, this is when Charlotte realized Jessica could be in danger- and
therefore giving Courtney the motivation she needed to kill her twin once and
for all. If Courtney’s plan worked Bethany would’ve killed Jessica, Courtney would’ve killed Bethany (both of them wearing the yellow top), and
Alison would’ve went down for the murder because she was also in a yellow top. Bethany killing Jessica would match the anger she had towards Jessica so no one would question it, and Courtney murdering Bethany wouldn’t be questioned since both
were in yellow tops, and Alison would’ve gone down for the murder because of
the letter planted in the DiLaurentis house so it made to look like she planned
to kill her. (Season 5 storyline anyone?)… That is, if Charlotte hadn’t
have escaped and accidentally knocked Alison out in the first place.
Now, getting to the proof that Courtney is in fact Uber A…
There are some requirements for the person who actually IS Uber A… 1. This person
knows everything that happened on Labor Day. 2. This person dug up Bethany’s
body in 3x01, proving that someone knew that body wasn’t Alison before anyone
else. 3. This person knew every single person involved with each crime, aka
Mona and Melissa, along with the accomplices who covered them up. 4. This
person is highly intelligent, but absolutely insane and dangerous.
Charlotte had no idea that Alison was alive up until the
night of the lodge fire, so how could she have possibly known the person in
Alison’s grave wasn’t her? The simple answer is, she couldn’t have. This proves
that whoever Uber A is knew not only the Bethany was dead and that Alison
survived, but they knew who was responsible for each crime. Didn’t you ever
wonder why exactly Melissa, Wilden, and others did the things they did? There
was something they had done that someone knew about that held it against them.
Last episode Melissa said Charlotte called Wren and told him
what Melissa had done, this would be impossible because Charlotte was watching
Jessica bury Alison, she had been with Jessica the ENTIRE night while Bethany
was knocked out and buried. Meaning someone saw everything happen and watched
Another thing Charlotte said during the 6x10 finale stuck
out to me… She said she could never trust Mona, that since she hit her best
friend with a car, how could she trust her? And yet, the red coat who dug up
Bethany’s body had Mona do it. Speaking of red coats, one of the scenes with the A ending has red coat torching
bobbleheads of the girls, if Charlotte had worn the red coat just that one time
at the saw mill… Who bought the black hoodies in 3x01?
Now, I’m going to go back to the Season 4 finale when
Jessica was murdered. We all know Charlotte didn’t do that, Jessica was the
last person in the world who knew Charlotte existed and was the only person
left who loved her. The person who did this was heartless, they wanted to hurt
Charlotte and Alison in any way necessary, and that was taking away someone
they loved, and someone who the killer absolutely hated. No one on the show
hated Jessica more than Bethany, at least that’s what you’re made to think- and
yet, if Bethany is dead, who STILL hated Jessica enough to kill her? Courtney.
Courtney isn’t like Charlotte or Mona, she has no real
reason to do what she does… As Bethany said, “She’s a bitch. She’s an evil
bitch. I don’t mean nasty or rude, I mean evil! Without a soul!”
Knowing just how evil, and just how smart Courtney was, she
did things for Charlotte to hate Bethany (i.e. killing Marion and blaming it on
her), and she did things for Bethany to hate Jessica (telling her about the “affair”).
She pitted people against each other without them knowing it was even happening,
and they didn’t even know they were being manipulated, Courtney had a reason
for every single move she made- she never did anything that wouldn’t serve a
Now, reading the synopsis for an upcoming episode, it says
that Alison believes she’s going insane- I think Courtney is going to be
showing up (much like what Alison did when she was supposed to be “dead”) just
to torture Alison, making her think Charlotte is still alive. Alison will
probably think she’s going insane and will most likely be put in a place like
Radley (possibly by her own hubby *cough*).
Now, who do I think killed Charlotte? Like I said in my Vertigo
theory (which you can read here: http://theplltheorist.tumblr.com/post/137259102034/6x11-thoughts-and-vertigo), I think Dr. Rollins was the one to help murder Charlotte- while
Courtney was there. From the tapes Bethany was recorded on, she said Courtney
could get anyone to do anything she wanted within a few minutes of knowing
them, 2 minutes if you’re a man. And I can guarantee you that he’s using his
marriage to Alison as an alibi, Courtney probably told him to do it as an alibi
but also to further damage Alison and put her away permanently. And we’ve also
seen recently that whoever the big bad is right now has access to Medical
Records, (Veronica and Yvonne’s).
And now, she’s going after Mona and Melissa as well, she’s
framing Melissa for murder and torturing Mona as well. Melissa is going to most
likely be pinned for some murder, whether it’s Charlotte or Bethany- right now
it looks like Melissa may be going down for Charlotte’s murder because of the
murder weapon being a part of her luggage bag. And remember, Melissa HATES
Charlotte now for telling Wren what she did… So they’ll believe the motive.
Now, for the physical proof:
In 6x10, while Charlotte is explaining what happened Labor
Day- she says that Bethany left with the Yellow Top, and from this letter that
was found in 5x13… Someone was sending Bethany letters pretending to be Alison,
and THEY are the ones who gave Bethany the yellow top. In 3x19 Jason stumbles out of the house, drunk and high- he sees Melissa and someone who looks like Charlotte in the yellow top. I think it’s very likely that Melissa was talking to Courtney, in fact- I think Courtney was the one who outed Alison and Ian to Melissa.
Whomever Melissa was talking to in the yellow top, she knew-
she knew very well. And in 6x10 while Charlotte was explaining how she
accidentally hit her thinking it was Bethany, Alison says that Jason saw her
and Melissa talking, but it couldn’t have been Charlotte because she was in all
black. So, whoever Melissa was talking to looked EXACTLY like Charlotte.
And in episode 4x24, when Alison was telling the girls what
happened on Labor Day, she discovered the EXACT same yellow shirt in her room-
along with an A message. So the person who sent both Alison AND Bethany yellow
tops had a plan for them, and Charlotte was NOT included in that deal.
And again in 6x10, Charlotte said she stopped visiting Mona
once they started weaning her off her meds- and yet, in 3x01 Red Coat took Mona
to the cemetery to dig up Bethany’s body which Emily recalls in 3x18. This proves that whomever dug the
grave up KNEW whoever was in that grave wasn’t Alison, and Charlotte believed
Alison had been dead up until she discovers that Alison is alive
in the Lodge Fire.
One of the most prominent pieces of proof that Bethany,
Charlotte, and Courtney looked alike was in 6x10, while Charlotte is explaining
what happened Labor Day when she mistook Alison for Bethany- Charlotte says
this: “She stole my clothes and knew I had out privileges so she snuck out of
Speaking of Red Coats… A recurring thing that keeps popping
up are twins, specifically twins in red. Well, take a look:
The last photo is from the night Charlotte was murdered,
whoever was in that red shirt was there when Charlotte was murdered… And since
Marlene has confirmed there is an identical twin coming up, along with the fact
Alison believes she’s going insane. It has to be someone who looks exactly like
Charlotte without being her twin… I believe Courtney is alive and well, and we’re
going to meet her… Very, very soon.
(P.S. Melissa is still the one trying to figure out who the
killer is, and Dr. Rollins is still the one who killed Charlotte… None of that
I have a lot more physical proof that she exists, but I’ve
been writing this theory going on about 10 hours total so… If you have any
questions, shoot me a message!
*are tortured by an anonymous person who is watching their every move by blackmailing them with their deepest darkest secrets and threatening them in a very violent fashion, playing with them like dolls, before kidnapping them and keeping them captive for a month on the brink of starvation/death and leaving psychological scars they will probably carry for the rest of their lives*
C Team (season 4, 5 + 6A)
-AD (dollhouse + Big A reveal?)
D Team/Amoji (season 6B+7A)
My main point of this theory is that AD took over the D team (now called the AD Team) and is a combination of the original A Team (full circle) and the D Team with AD being the “leader” (similar to Alison being leader of the 4 girls) and the others are just his/her minions.
AD Team (season 7)
-Jenna (from 7x10 onwards)
-Lucas (board game)
-Charlotte (if she faked her death)
-Melissa (could also be AD)
-Mona (?-double agent/being blackmailed/could have never left the game)
I believe the reveal of AD’s partners (Mona, Charlotte, Melissa etc) will be more shocking and we will feel more betrayed than the reveal of AD’s identity because AD could possibly be someone we’ve never seen before for example a twin, Bethany or someone who we thought was dead (Sara, Maya, Wilden etc).
My top suspects for the identity of AD are
-A twin of one of the Liar’s (best bet on Alison or Spencer)
Uber A (AD) has always been in charge even if he/she let Mona and Charlotte think they were in charge but really they have always been the one behind the scenes pulling the strings, I believe he or she is behind every major event in PLL and that will be revealed in 7x20.
Sara Harvey is Charles & CeCe Drake is Bethany DETAILED THEORY. MUST READ.
Hi guys! Here’s a detailed analysis of my Sara Harvey is Charles & CeCe Drake is Bethany theory. PLEASE GIVE CREDIT IF YOU USE. I worked really hard on this!
Sara Harvey is Charles. Sara takes a lot of showers to feel better, Charles says a bath makes him feel better. Note: They’re both wearing blue. Charles is great at acting, Bethany was impressed by how good he was. Sara faked being scared multiple times, she’s a great actress too. A wanted to recreate the night when Alison disappeared hence why she was forced to wear the yellow top. Jessica bought the same outfit for Charles. Sara was seen wearing the yellow ruffled top at the dollhouse, she was also reported to have ran away the night of Alison’s disappearance. Something to think about. Red Coat was staying at the DiLaurentis house when A was in the lair! Therefore, it wasn’t CeCe who stayed at the basement, it was Sara. She was homeless hence why Charles was staying at Aunt Carol’s. CeCe is A, she has her own place, her own car, a job, etc. Why would she be staying at Aunt Carol’s? Right? Black Veil is also Sara Harvey, Jessica was seen dressed as Black Veil at Alison’s funeral (dream). This could be a connection. Sara was also seen wearing a dress that was almost identical to Jessica’s dress, the one she wore at Alison’s funeral (credit to @audreyvarjak). BOTH at Alison’s funeral, something to think about. Sara and Alison never had a proper scene together, the only scene they had was at the police station. They gave each other deep looks and that was it. Why is that? If Alison continues to speak to Sara, she’ll eventually feel somewhat a connection between them. Just like how Spencer felt a connection between her & A at the dollhouse. Isn’t it strange that Alison never felt a connection between her & CeCe? That’s because she’s not Charles. All this time they’ve been hanging out 24/7 and not once have Alison felt something between them. Sara got a tattoo of a bird freeing from its cage, this symbolizes freedom. However, free from what? She wasn’t locked up, she was working with A. I’ll tell you why, CeCe claimed to be Charles, therefore there were no longer strings attached between Sara and her old self, Charles.
Sara was seen at the graveyard, however she did NOT mention that she was visiting Charlotte. “I was saying goodbye to someone” Jessica’s grave was to be seen at the end. Something to think about. She got electrocuted on purpose because she was afraid if the cops would link her to Charles through her fingerprints. Her hands got burnt, therefore they can’t prove her identity wrong (credit to Kim Walker). Mona pretended to be Alison at the dollhouse, ‘I’m Alison, Alison DiLaurentis’ Sara said the same thing about herself in hesitation, 'Sara. I’m Sara Harvey’ This could be a hint that she too is lying about her identity. CeCe Drake is Bethany Young. Charles was actually very proper behaved and frightened when Bethany pushed Marion off the roof. Is he A material? Definitely not. Whereas, Bethany is bipolar. She would rage unexpectedly, thinking she could do whatever the hell pleases her. This links us to CeCe because she too has anger issues hence why she went completely insane towards the girls. Jessica had an affair with Bethany’s father and took Charles away from her (faked his death). However, she didn’t believe that Charles was dead. Therefore, she drew a portrait of Jessica with “LIAR” written all over her. She was completely miserable hence the drawing of her looking depressed and alone. Jessica was a board of trustee, she noticed that Bethany was going through some major depression. She then started buying her gifts and took her on outings out of guilt. Jessica took her to a horse ranch and bought a horse named Custard for her, that’s where she met Melissa and Spencer too hence why Spencer felt a 'childhood connection’ between CeCe at the dollhouse. When Bethany was old enough, Jessica gave her out privileges. That’s when she became a totally new person named CeCe Drake. She made new friends, Alison and Jason included. However, that all ended when she pulled a prank at Radley, which almost gave Jessica a heart attack. 'But it’s NOT my daughter siting in Radley, it’s CeCe Drake…That girl is no longer welcome in this house’ She no longer gave Bethany the access to roam freely outside of the asylum.
Jessica mentioned that Alison’s friendship with CeCe was toxic because they started wearing each other’s personalities. In Bethany’s recordings, she mentioned that Alison was not the only one who could make plans. However, Alison doesn’t know a 'Bethany’ Unless, Bethany Young is actually CeCe Drake. Think about it. After Alison disappeared, CeCe literally became a replica of Alison. Wilden asked Hanna if she wanted to take Alison’s place because of the way she started dressing, that idea probably came about from Bethany. Bethany was obsessed with Alison, I mean, who wouldn’t be? After Jessica took her out privileges, Bethany was very confused and furious. Alison stopped seeing her, that’s how CeCe’s A motive came about. She was extremely jealous of the girls! Let’s flash forward to the night of Alison’s disappearance, shall we? Jessica received a call from Radley about Bethany’s whereabouts. Melissa and Wilden helped Bethany escape. That’s why she was seen on the phone with Wilden that night. Don’t forget that the three of them were extremely close friends at Cape May. CeCe was angry at Alison for betraying her, Melissa despised Alison for hooking up with Ian & knowing about the NAT videos, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were planning on killing her hence the 'Where is she?!’ Another CeCe is Bethany clue: When CeCe walked into Spencer’s room, she brushed off Melissa’s horse riding helmet as though it brought back memories. Ian also mentioned that he had home videos that could ruin Alison’s family. If Melissa knows about Bethany, it would make perfect sense how he was able to dig some dirt. Melissa and CeCe planned to lure Sara Harvey to Rosewood as a distraction so they could end Alison once and for all. CeCe got to Alison first and hit her with a rock. Jessica witnessed everything but still protected CeCe because she blackmailed her about Charles. She knew he was still very much alive. Mona thought Sara Harvey was Alison and ends up hitting her with a shovel. Melissa thought the girl was Alison so she ends up burying her.
Sara Harvey died a tragic death. However, her death comes after Alison’s. Alison gets buried by her mother at the gazebo, Grunwald later saves her (this had to be quick, how else was she able to survive?) This leads to an open grave at the gazebo. While Alison was on her way to the hospital, Mona hits Sara & Melissa literally just pushes her into the open grave. She did not actually dig up a hole. However, Bethany knew that it was Sara Harvey and not Alison because she already witnessed Jessica burying her own daughter. She knew Alison got pulled out when Melissa told her that she buried 'Alison’ (Sara Harvey) at the gazebo, the same place where Alison was buried. Therefore, in S3, Bethany took over Mona’s A game and dug up Sara Harvey’s body. It’s highly possible that she put her DNA into the decaying body. When Bethany’s death was announced in S5, Black Veil sent her condolences to her parents. However, this time it was NOT Sara Harvey. When CeCe got back from her trip to Paris, she moves her belongings to an apartment. In the apartment, you’re able to see BV’s outfit. Next episode, in the same apartment, BV was seen writing a sympathy card for Bethany’s parents. There was an uncaged bird on the card, which again symbolizes freedom. Just like Sara, there were no longer strings attached between CeCe and her old self, Bethany. CeCe was free to be whoever she wanted, she decided to take on Charles’ role in S5, where the dollhouse came about (please read the ending of part 1 to get a clear understanding) Note: In S6, you’re able to see Sara Harvey’s handwriting when she sent a birthday gift to CeCe, which is completely different to the handwriting on Bethany’s sympathy card. This also proves that the two don’t live together. Let’s move on to Claire, shall we? A has blackmailed loads of people into doing things they did not want to do. Who’s to say that Claire isn’t blackmailed to pretend that Charles is Sara Harvey? Claire hated Sara in S4 but she suddenly wants her to sleepover in S6? I don’t buy it. Sara was working with CeCe, she definitely did not have the time to hang out with Claire. It was the perfect plan to get her out of Emily’s house.
More coming soon! Thanks for reading!! <3 Feel free to tell me what you think about this! If you use, please please give credit :)
