I THINK I JUST MADE A REALLY IMPORTANT CONNECTION PLEASE READ THIS
OKAY SO I’m rewatching seasons 3-5 over the weekend and I obv started with S3E1 and I was like oh well they say that this episode parallels with S1E1 so I’d better watch that first and then start season 3 right
So I did that and I made notes for each episode and was comparing/contrasting what might parallel and I had an epiphany
THEY PARALLEL, which means you can use the pilot to plug in things in S3E1, AND VICE VERSA
I NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED THAT, THAT YOU COULD DO IT BACKWARDS TOO, I FEEL LIKE THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
ALSO, now that we’re so far into this story we’ve learned other things about the night Ali was attacked, and we should be plugging all of it in when watching 101 and 301
here’s a couple things I noticed, but I would love for anyone who has the time to watch these two episodes together and cross reference BOTH WAYS and post about it in the pll theories tag because you guys are so much smarter than me and I wanna collaborate
Sleepover, drinking + drugged
Ali drugged the girls/A drugged Emily
Spencer mixed drugs + alcohol/Emily unknowingly did
Both have unclear potentially true or false memories of hurting “Alison”
*Remember that Ali told Hanna the girls know more about that night than they think, which has never been explained
NOTE: FUCKING MARLENE KING OH MY GOD, the girls are talking in 301 and Aria hears something but Hanna says “ITS JUST THE WIND” and immediately after they get an A text that says “Show me your boobs” and they joke about A being Mona’s brother, and he turns out to be Alison’s, like are you kidding me
*Originally we’re led to believe that Ezra and Mona care about Aria and Hanna while in reality they always had ulterior motives (Ezra’s book, Mona being A) / We’re led to believe Toby is a model friend and boyfriend while in reality is on the A team, so we have some of the liars being tricked in both episodes. I also think this applies to Wren: introduced as lovable in season 1, reimagined as having ulterior motives in season 3, specifically S3E1 when he explains to Hanna he’s working at Radley “Quid Pro Quo”
*If Mona was originally A and was basically hiding in plain sight and in the pilot when the girls got their first A messages and often popped up during the season, PLL logic rules argue that the same can be said of Charles.
*S3E1 the girls are being set up for taking “Ali’s” body, destroy and bury evidence (Spencer’s field hockey stick was buried originally/here, Aria and Hanna bury shovel), rehearse a fake alibi (Wilden said in season one that their original story seemed rehearsed.) Can this parallel to fill in some blanks about the liars on that night?
*Originally, Bethany escaped Radley that night and was killed in Ali’s backyard / Maya escaped from someone and was killed in Emily’s backyard
(trying to tell Emily something important; MAYA KNEW, possibly knew Ali was alive because she had some of Ali’s things + stayed at Kahn cabin; this could work because originally Mona knew Ali was alive, which would also be a parallel!)
Can this parallel to Bethany knowing Charles was alive?
*Spencer hallucinates seeing Alison in her old bedroom/Aria hallucinates seeing A in the school bathroom, have fun with that connection 😂
*Jessica Dilaurentis knows who “killed” Alison/Garrett knows who took “her” body
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD TO THIS/USE THIS INFO AS YOU PLEASE FOR THEORIES, ALL HANDS ON DECK, IDGAF ABOUT CREDITING ME, GO GO GO
So I read something that Marlene said they ran out of time to tell Noel’s story. I want to know if she really did say this. Ran out of time?!?!?!? Then why did we have time for Jonny, Talia, Sara, Lorenzo, the Andrew red herring, among other things??????? Seriously.
There is a twin. You will meet this person soon. Within a few episodes,” she hinted,” adding that the twin just so happens to be an identical one. She added, “I promise, if you wait for it, you will look back and say “OMG, I get it!”
Oh, and that’s not all the interesting info she dished out. Not only will we find out who killed Charlotte and whether the new Big Bad is one person or a team of two before the end of the seventh season, but fan-favorite characters such as Jenna, Jason, Noel, Lucas, Melissa and Wren are all returning to Rosewood at one point or another. “That’s the plan! #endgame,” she verified.
I know everyone is excited for the twin, I’m excited that Noel will be back! :D As far as who I’d like to see with a twin, I’m hopeful that it’s Aria or Jenna. But I’d be okay with anyone having a twin as long as it’s not Sara or Bethany.
