redcoat theory



Remember when Jason finds a box of Ali’s stuff while Ali is presumed dead? Inside there are love letters between Peter Hasting’s and Jessica DiLaurentis (his biological parents).. There is also $15,000 in cash. The liars come to the conclusion that Ali must have been blackmailing Peter for money so she could fake her death at some point.

This made by brain explode into all these reasons that it’s possible Jason is Charles!!

Enjoy my theory! : 

  • Jessica and Kenneth DiLaurentis are married. 
  • Jessica has an affair with Peter Hastings and gives birth to Charles.
  • Kenneth realizes that Charles is not his son, and forces Jessica to put him into Radley.
  • Jessica puts Charles in Radley, but joins the Board so she can watch over him.
  • Charles goes through terrible experiences in Radley, destroying his entire childhood. There he meets a girl named Bethany Young- the two become close friends and confidants.
  • He also meets his cousin, CeCe Drake, and the three of them bond.
  • Jessica and Kenneth have a daughter named Alison.
  • Jessica cannot bear to be away from her son any longer, and convinces Kenneth to let her bring him back home. 
  • Kenneth agrees, and they decide to try to start all over- by re-naming him Jason.They convince Jason that Charles was an imaginary friend who never existed.
  • They even went as far as to build a fake grave for the ‘death’ of Charles.

This picture Bethany drew is of Jason being taken away from her:

Bethany hates Jessica so much because she abandoned Charles, and then took him back, renamed him, and tried to brainwash him into thinking Charles never existed. Bethany’s hatred towards Jessica is evident in all the drawings she did of her in Radley.

Remember when Jason and Ali were looking through photo albums and Jason comments on how many more pictures there are of Ali than of him? That’s because he didn’t live with the DiLaurentis’ for most of his childhood….

When he was brought back into his family, he felt a deep resentment towards Ali, who was loved and treated so much better then him by their parents. 

The only bond he ever shared with anyone was with Bethany and CeCe in Radley. Jessica takes Bethany out of Radley some days so he can play with her. Jessica does this secretly behind Kenneth’s back, but tries to make Bethany believe that Charles is JASON and that he never lived in Radley with her. That’s why Bethany thinks Jessica is a liar.

Jessica even let Bethany come to one of Jason (Charles) birthday celebrations. 

As Bethany gets older, she blackmails Jessica into doing things for her so that she won’t tell Kenneth the truth. That’s who the second dress was for hidden in the piano. Remember Jessica tells Ali “not to tell Daddy because he will get mad.” Jessica doesn’t want Kenneth to know she still lets Jason(Charles) interact with his old friend.

Jason is jealous if Alison, and tells Bethany about her. When we hear the recording of Bethany talking about Ali she says, “Is it like mother like daughter?” 

Growing up, Jason(Charles) turned to alcohol and drugs to ease the memories of what he went through as a child. Remember Jason is an alcoholic and drug addict, and A is ALWAYS seen drinking.

At some point Alison finds out about Bethany, and the two write letters to one another. But knowing Alison- she probably treated Bethany badly, angering her further. 

At some point Jason(Charles) finds out that Peter is his real father, by finding Ali’s box of money and his biological parents’ love letters. He realizes she is blackmailing his dad. His hatred for Ali grows.

He starts sending Ali the text messages, and creates the NAT club with Ian and Garrett to spy on Alison in order to find dirt to use to blackmail her. He asks his cousin CeCe Drake to get close to Alison and learn her secrets. 

The night that Alison goes missing, Bethany escapes from Radley. Jessica knows that Bethany hates her, and panics when she hears she has escaped. That’s why she tries to keep Ali inside that night.

Bethany attempts to kill Ali (for Jason), by hitting her on the head with a rock. Jessica sees the whole thing from the window. Thinking Ali is dead, Jessica buries her because she needs to keep her secret safe. Ali survives and escapes.

Because Ali and Bethany are both blonde and wearing the same clothes that Jessica bought them, Mona mistakenly kills Bethany- thinking it was her bully Ali. 

Melissa comes across Bethany’s dead body and thinks it is Ali. Melissa buries her, thinking Spencer killed Ali. 

Jason spends the year after Ali’s disappearance trying to find Bethany and Ali, not knowing what happened. He believes that one of the 4 liars- Ali’s best friends- knows what happened to Bethany.

He begins to send the girls A messages, to gain information. He has a serious mental illness from the psychological distress from his childhood, and that is why he sometimes treats the girls kindly. He has a soft spot for Spencer, his other half-sister, who is intelligent and kind, and he also has an obvious crush on Aria. But most of the time he is torturing them to avenge Bethany.

Jason is Charles-Head A- and CeCe is Red Coat. 

He sends CeCe into Rosewood to befriend the liars to get information from them. He also has Mona working for him, but Mona doesn’t know his true identity- he communicates to her through CeCe.  Mona is instructed to take the fall as A when she is caught so that the game can continue. We see CeCe talking to Mona in Radley, and Mona saying, “I did everything you told me to.”

Jason is a wealthy man, capable of doing everything A has done. He hired EZRA FITZ, an undercover police officer, to do constant surveillance on the girls. It was a set-up that he met Alison that one time. Jason instructed him to get close to her. He ends up falling for Aria over time, but continues his police work.

The cash money found in Ezra’s drawer, was payments from Jason for surveillance. 

When the coroner reveals that it is Bethany Young’s body that was buried under the gazebo, and not Ali’s, Jessica makes a lair in Aunt Carol’s basement, and dedicates her time trying to find Alison.

CeCe runs away to London.

Jason (Charles) kills Jessica. He could never forgive her for giving him away in the first place. He blames her for everything that happened to him. I think this is why we are going to feel sympathy for A. 

Jason sends Kenneth a birthday card- taunting him. Kenneth never treated Jason (Charles) well. He forced Jessica to give him away, and treated him poorly the rest of his life.

Later, CeCe is told to take the fall as A. Jason tells her to pretend she is Charles to gain sympathy. Jessica is dead, so no one can say that CeCe’s story isn’t true. When we see Jason and Kenneth’s ‘unconscious’ bodies when CeCe is revealed as A, it was similar to the movie SAW. Jason was just pretending to be unconscious. Really, him and CeCe had kidnapped Kenneth, knocked him out, and were going to kill him. 

But lets back up a little….

Jason sent this card and balloon to his house, so that no one would suspect him (just like Mona sent herself A-messages in the first season)

During the long period of time that Jason wasn’t in Rosewood, he was building a Dollhouse, where he is planning to bring all the girls to. He had help from CeCe, and other members of the A Team, like Noel and Mona.

He convinces Mona (through CeCE) to stage her own death, in order to frame Ali for her murder and put her in jail for the rest of her life. 

In the Dollhouse, Jason (Charles) recreates the childhood he wish he had.

He has a playroom:

Baby pictures:

A mannequin family representing the family he wish he had: The little boy represents him, and the girl Bethany (The girl he loved like a sister).

A crib

And his teddy bear:

He also has a very interesting wall hanging- that says LOVE THY NEIGHBOR, which represents his mother having an affair with Peter, their next door neighbor.


Mona is acting the whole time, pretending to be Ali- Jason gives her the gas mask saying “Because your my favorite,” because she has been a loyal A Team member.

When he comes face to face with Spencer, the sister that he does love, he doesn’t hurt her. That’s why Spencer says that he felt familiar to her.

Everyone always comments that Aria gets the least of the torture from A, and that’s because Jason is A and is in love with her.

The Liars come face to face with Jason here, THIS IS NOT CECE:

Coming back to what I said before, CeCe takes the fall for Jason when the Liars escape, and uses Charles’ identity and pretends to be transgender to gain sympathy and get put into Welby instead of jail. 

Because Mona is found with the Liars in the Dollhouse by the police, she continues to pretend she was kidnapped and brought there against her will. Due to this, Ali is released from jail.

Jason and CeCe need to find another way to punish Ali. 

CeCe has her boyfriend Archer (pretending to be Dr. Elliot Rollins) make Ali fall in love with him. Their plan works. They instruct him to marry her, mess with her mind, drug her, and get her to check herself into a mental institution.

But someone kills CeCe….Jason decides to use the name AD for now on, which stands for After Death, to immortalize CeCe. He vows even more revenge.

When Ali voluntarily checks herself into Welby, all of the money under her name in the Carissimi Group goes to Elliot, who in turn gives it to CeCe and Jason. 

CeCe’s mother- Mary Drake- helps them with this plan.

Jason kidnaps Hanna and tortures her, trying to find out if she really knows who killed CeCe.

Mary starts to feel badly for what they are doing to Ali. Her maternal instincts kick in when she sees the torture Ali is going through, and decides to take her out of Welby.   


His anger towards Mary is evident.

When Mary tells the girls about Jessica’s lair, they go to investigate. Jason decides to burn the place down, but not before taking Aria’s file (because he loves her) and Noel’s file (to protect him because he is one of Jason’s loyal A members).

Mary, Noel, Mona, and Jenna are all part of the A Team

Mona helps Noel escape when Hanna kidnaps him, and pretends to surveil the Radley Hotel with Caleb so that Jenna can sneak out. 

Mary, Jenna, and Noel go to the Blindschool to kill the girls once and for all, but everything goes wrong as usual.

Noel is murdered, and Spencer is shot. 

Again, Mary’s maternal instincts kick in and she runs to Spencer’s aid. 


You have to remember that Mary spent time in Radley and has a mental disorder. She just recently lost her daughter CeCe, and is in unbearable grief. Running to Spencer’s aid was her way of trying to save CeCe’s life. She looked down and saw CeCe, not Spencer.

Jason (Charles) pulls Jenna out of the Blindschool, saving her life because she has been loyal to him. But just like with Mona, Jenna doesn’t know his true identity.

The End.

Okay, so this theory literally just came into my mind yesterday and I had to get it all down. I’ve never even thought Jason was A before now.

I hope you enjoyed it.

Only 4 more months til we find out!!!!!!!!!!!!


I’m calling it right now. The 6a finale will end with a flashback to when Mona was first admitted to Radley and Redcoat visited her. The one when Mona says “I did everything you asked me to.” Only this time we see who it is. (It has already been confirmed that this scene will be in the finale.)
After the time jump, A starts up again and all the liars go back to rosewood. This A will be Redcoat. Only this time we will know who it is. For the last season and a half of the show we will know who A is and the girls won’t.
This means the writers will be able to show us exactly how A is operating for the rest of the show.

SeAson 1 - AriA

I’ve been requested to do this post by an anonymous person so here it is, and I’m sorry for it being so damn late. I decided to take a break from the PLL world. Too much going on with the hate, the finale and guessing who the ‘He’ is. 

In this post I’ll either talk about which scenes point towards Aria being -A ( doing something -A related) or just post a screencap of her being shady like she always is. :) Oh, and I’ll be posting these right up until S6, so stay tuned!

1x01 - Pilot (continued…)

Hanna: Where’s Ali? … And Spencer???

Aria: We don’t know? 

-WE? Who’s ‘WE’ Aria?

*Whispers* “Hey it’s Aria. What’s the next??”

-We know for a fact that the girls weren't in contact after Ali had gone missing. The only time when the girls were reunited is at School. So who was Aria texting before she “met” Ezra? And was that Aria’s Mum who had texted her at Ali’s funeral or someone else? I have a strong feeling Aria had another friend before That Night, someone from Rosewood, someone who isn't friends with the other girls… 

1x02 - The Jenna thing

-How many phones does Aria have? First a flip up phone, then this???

1x06 - There’s no place like homecoming

Why is it that we only see Aria in a BLACK hoodie that is covered in paint? 

When the girls come to visit her, Aria is in bed looking all tired and not in the zone. Perhaps she was off doing her -A mission?

1x10 - Keep your friends close

So Hanna had thought that she saw -A, but it turns out that it wasn’t (we find out in the next episode). But when she got hit by the car (which was actually drove by Mona), Aria had picked up Hanna’s phone, which said “She knew too much. –A”. Okay, so does this mean that Mona and Aria were working at the time? I mean this text message could’ve meant that Mona found out that Hanna now knows about the Ezria relationship, so she had texted on Hanna’s phone to let Aria know what was going on.

**Other half of S1 to be done on a seperate post.**

I think Marlene just (accidentally) gave the biggest clue ever...???

She tweeted that the actor whose character is A plays A (in the black hoodie & gloves etc.) for some A scenes.


The actor would have to KNOW they’re A to be playing A sometimes! I am sooooo sold on Toby as A right now…

Sara Harvey is Hanna’s Sister Theory

*I HATED the Sara reveals. By making this theory I am not supporting the fact that she is RC/BW. But none of us can change it. But we can try to see WHY she is RC/BW.*

I want to begin by pointing out that Redcoat, at times, seems to have something against Hanna.

After that scene happened, Sara rescued all of the girls except Hanna at the Thornhill Lodge.

Also in this scene, Redcoat is watching Hanna,

Originally posted by onlybellisario

And then this happens(We know this was done by a black hoodie, but Sara was the one giving the orders on behalf of CeCe at this point):

Also this scene:

“Okay cool but why do you think she’s Hanna’s sister?” 

 The above scene happened in “The Mirror Has Three Faces”, when Sara/CeCe were trying to frame Hanna for Alison’s(who we now know is Bethany’s) murder. Bethany stole CeCe’s clothes that night in order to use CeCe’s privileges. So I believe she also wore the bracelet in order to look even more like CeCe. Traces of Alison’s blood and Hanna’s blood were found on the bracelet. At this point CeCe didn’t know Alison was alive, so there’s no way she got Alison’s blood. But what could CeCe have done? Put her own blood in the bracelet knowing it’s the same type as Alison’s. Wilden tells Hanna they also found the same type of blood as her, and this was before the blood drive and therefore before A could get the liars’ blood. So how did CeCe get the same blood type as Hanna on the bracelet? By using Sara’s blood.

Although there are constant references to Ashley not being an angel and having skeletons in her closet, I don’t think she has a secret illegitimate child.

This may not be valid reasoning, but her selfless behavior towards Hanna just makes it unreasonable for her to abandon a child. But you know who not only would abandon a child, but actually has already done it?

Tom Marin. We don’t know why Ashley and Tom divorced. In Rosewood, the town of affairs and unusual relationships, I would not be surprised if Tom had an affair that resulted in Sara. This would also explain Ms. Harvey’s distant behavior towards Sara. Also Sara has mentioned her father:

“Pretend my dad would come back and he’d be different if he did.” I see theories about it, saying her dad could have a mental illness. But what if the “different” is simply Sara wanting her dad to be more affectionate/caring, the same thing Hanna wants?

I believe the affair happened while Tom was married to Ashley. So obviously, Tom had to separate time between work, Ms. Harvey and Sara, and Ashley and Hanna. The obvious result? Work and Ashley/Hanna received most of his time. Sara grew up, barely seeing her dad. Ashley found out about the affair and that’s why they divorced. And when Sara was older, she found out about Ashley and Hanna. Maybe that’s why she was in Rosewood that night, because she wanted revenge on Ashley and Hanna. I think CeCe originally did kidnap Sara as an alternative to Alison, but then Sara found out they had common interests, and an alliance was formed. You may be wondering why doesn’t Sara attack Kate and Isabel? Because in Sara’s mind, Ashley and Hanna took Tom and ruined Sara’s childhood. When Tom left Ashley, the damage was already done.

It would also explain the parallel between these 2 scenes,  CeCe looking into the DiLaurentis house, and Sara looking inside the Marin house.

Honestly, I feel the Aria theorists must feel the worst right now. There is NO denying the Aria clues. The noir references, the literacy references, the links to personality disorders. Why did they give those to us if they were deemed irrelevant all along? You Aria theorist have been my favourite. Thank you for such clever theories.

5 years forward

When you watch 5 years forward but Allison/Sasha isn’t sitting with the rest of the Liars in the barn.

Remember how after Emily was drugged, she kept remembering little pieces of what she did that night? 

She remembered going to Sputnik’s diner. Holden was there with a temporary eye tattoo from Eric Kahn’s party. Someone wrote “I’m sorry I left you” on the menu.

Maya used to go to those parties when she was living in Noel’s cabin for a short time when she was thought to be in San Francisco. 

Another thing Emily remembers is Jenna driving her somewhere, with her sight back of course. Jenna wore a red coat. When asked about it, she said she found Emily drunk in the middle of the road, and Emily ran out of her car at a stoplight.

What Jenna said was probably a lie. At a later Kahn party (where CeCe gave Spencer’s college application to a UPenn friend), Spencer got Noel to tell the truth about what happened when she found out Noel was with Jenna that night. He says they found Emily at a diner. It must be Sputniks. Jenna says she lied about it to protect someone. She told Nate she was friends with Maya, and Maya stayed with Noel so they were probably close!


So who wrote “I’m sorry I left you” on Emily’s menu?.


Take a look at these screenshots of Maya’s “massugar” website. There are little pictures that link to photo galleries or videos. Several of them are from a DINER! On the right side there are black and white photos of a checkered tablecloth with condiments. On the bottom right (bottom pic), there is even a photo of a neon “DINER” sign. I didn’t see these things in the scene of Emily going back to Sputniks, but they are classic diner visuals. Mona said “Maya knew”, and we never found out what! Maybe she learned too much and had to fake her death to avoid being silenced. We never saw a body… What do you think?

PLL Baby Announcements

Okay I’m going to start this post off by saying I know people think this information isn’t important and it was just made for props. However I think maybe that just means the photos of the babies aren’t all that important. In my opinion the writing underneath could be a clue so I’m going to post what i can make out whether it’s important or not :)

Firstly this is the clearest pic I have come across and I found it on pllquestionsandtheories so thanks for posting a clear one and the images below are the pic above just zoomed in on.

So first is the one on the left:

I believe it says:

Mr and Mrs Al (something)

take pleasure in announcing

the birth of a son

Jason Matthew

on Friday, the twenty-seventh of November

nineteen hundred and seventy (Ah okay last time I read it as ninety but now I believe it says seventy)

(now this next line I have trouble with because to me it looks like it starts off with 5 number possibly 19229 and to me the next words look like: famous Holly Cimb? haha I can’t read those parts and don’t really know what it would mean)

Los Angeles, California

Second pic from on the right:

I believe says:

Mr and Mrs Al (something, I think it starts with an R or a P)

take pleasure in announcing

the birth of a son

(something, I have seen people say it says Rodney or Radley) Todd (or tedd)

Weight 7 lbs. 12 ozs.

My brain hurts from trying to put the pieces together but this picture Wren was drawing MUST be connected to the Mary Jane/Charlotte/Elliot thing somehow. I mean Wren mentioned that his father used to be in a mental institution, just like Mary Jane. Coincidence? Never

3) Whose earrings did Ali and Aria find in Byron’s office? (Meredith said they weren’t hers. Did Ali plant her own to get more blackmail $$$?)

4) Which Rosewood girls were pimping out their friends to the N.A.T. club?(Jason says the N.A.T. club paid girls to set up their friends.)

5) Who was the N.A.T. club working for? (Jason thinks that by the time he left the club, Ian was filming for someone else.)

6) Who killed Marion Cavanaugh?

7) Who are Bethany’s parents?

8) Why did Mrs. D want to be so close to Bethany?

9) Why did Bethany hate Mrs. D?

10) How did Alison and Bethany know each other?

11) Why did Ali want Bethany to dress like her “that night”?

12) Why did Ali want Jenna to think she was dead if she only decided to run away after someone tried to kill her?

13) Who hit Ali over the head with a rock and buried her alive?

14) Who was Mrs. D trying to protect?

PBS has described Martel’s story as one of “personal growth through adversity.

The main character learns that “tigers are dangerous” and develops “ALPHA” QUALITIES as he musters the strength, will and skills he needs to survive.
