#PLL List of Questions
This show is famous for leaving fans with many unanswered questions so we thought we’d keep a list and update it regularly before the show ends.
1. Who is Uber A?
2. What is Uber A’s motive?
Who killed Charlotte?
Why was Charlotte killed?
Because Mona saw through Charlotte, she knew that over the five years Charlotte never got better. It was her plan to pretend to get better, get released and start playing the game again. Mona planned on scaring Charlotte so she couldn’t start playing the game again.
But, it was an accident. The two got into a physical fight and Mona threw Charlotte onto a steel pipe which accidentally killed her.
Who killed Jessica?
Why was Jessica killed?
Because of the lies and the way she treated her twin sister, Mary Drake. Jessica had taken Mary’s child from her, and when Mary pretended to be Jessica and was impregnated by Peter Hastings, Jessica organised for Mary to be sent to Radley Sanitarium, once again.
To top everything off, Mary found out that Jessica lied when she told her that her son Charles had died at age 16, when really Charles transitioned into Charlotte DiLaurentis/Cece Drake.
Peter and Jessica were also secretly working together, setting out on a plan to use Peter’s pills to kill Mary. This plan had backfired, with Mary learning of their plan. She intercepted, giving Jessica the pills which stopped her heart.
Who is the “he” the girls are running from in the 610 flash forward?
Archer Dunhill. Emily has a nightmare in 719 that plays out the flash forward scene, in which the “he” they are referring to is Archer who comes back from the dead to come after Ali.
Who killed Sara?
Noel Kahn (not stated specifically in the show).
Why was Sara killed?
Because she was suspicious of Noel and his motives after being asked to help him go on a “treasure hunt” to help find Charlotte’s money. Noel planned on killing Sara and Jenna at the end of the hunt so he could have all the money to himself, but he killed Sara earlier then he planned to help prevent the possibility of her telling everyone about what she knows.
10. Who shot Spencer?
11. Why was Noel helping with the dollhouse?
12. What is Sara’s motive for helping Charlotte?
13. What really happened to Sara Harvey the night she “ran away” from home?
Who killed Garrett Reynolds?
Darren Wilden did. He killed Garrett because he found out about Wilden being a dirty cop and was going to expose him.
Who killed Darren Wilden?
Charlotte did. He found out Ali was alive and wasn’t going to let her come home to tell her story. Charlotte killed him so that Ali could come home.
16. What is Wren Kingston's involvement?
17. Why was Wren colouring in a Red Coat?
18. Why did Wren give Cece a visitors pass to visit Mona in Radley when she was already a patient?

How many children does Mary Drake have?
Two: Spencer Hastings and Charlotte DiLaurentis.
Who is Spencer’s biological father?
Spencer’s biological father is Peter Hastings, who slept with Mary Drake thinking that she was her twin sister, Jessica DiLaurentis.
Who is Charlotte’s biological father?
Pastor Ted Wilson.
Why was Mary Drake in Radley?
Mary was admitted into Radley on several occasions throughout her life. The first time was because she switched places with her sister to help babysit Teddy Carver, and when his parents arrived home, they found Teddy dead. Jessica was most likely responsible for this, but Mary was babysitting and was given the punishment of being sent to Radley.
The second time was due to Mary pretending to be Jessica so that she could get with Peter Hastings. After this, Jessica signs the papers for Mary’s readmission into Radley Sanitarium.
Why did Jenna and Sara work together?
They were working together to find Charlotte’s killer, and according to Jenna they were working with Noel to find money that Charlotte had left for them.
Why was Rollins making Ali fall for him even before Charlotte was killed?
He needed to win her over so that she would believe his treatment was helping Charlotte get better, which would ultimately lead to her release from Welby. Charlotte even said herself, “Archie needs to win her trust. Convince her that I’m doing better.” “Alison is the only chance I have of getting out of here.”
26. When and how did Charlotte and Archer Dunhill (Rollins) meet?
27. Are Uber A and Amoji the same person?
Read our theory here which explains our take on Uber A and Amoji being two different people.

Toby survived but Yvonne sadly didn’t.
29. How was Eddie Lamb connected to the plot and what happened to him?
30. What is Bethany Young’s entire involvement in the overall storyline?
How did no one know about Mary Drake?
“Many families have secrets. Sometimes those secrets are actual people.”
She spent a lot of time in Radley Sanitarium and possibly impersonating her sister, Jessica DiLaurentis.
32. Mary Drake said she got a call from Rollins after Charlotte was killed which made her come back to avenge her daughter. Why did she lie, as we know she landed in Philly a week before Charlotte was killed?
Who is Beach Hottie?
Detective Darren Wilden.
Who gave Ali the bloody lip in Veronica Hasting’s flashback?
This wasn’t answered in the show but rather in an interview with Marlene on an ET Live chat. She said it was someone from the older group of college kids Ali was hanging around with.
35. Was Charlotte really in charge or was their someone higher calling all the shots?
Why did Jessica have a lair devoted to finding out if Ali was alive when she was the one who buried her that night?
We think we may have solved this one ourselves! We posted here about Charlotte finding out Ali was alive in 3x24 and then telling Jessica about it in order to redeem herself. Jessica then returned to Rosewood in 4x01 and set up a secret lair at Aunt Carol’s to try and track Ali to bring her home. She even got Ali’s bedroom set up for her ready for her return!
Why was Aria’s file taken from Jessica’s lair?
To blackmail Aria to turn on her friends and join the A team.
What was in Aria’s folder?
A report that she had written about Ezra, in which she basically called him out on being a sexual predator and taking advantage of a 16 year old high school student.
What did Maya know? (Miss Aria You’re A Killer Not Ezra’s Wife)
Maya knew that her stalker from True North; Lyndon James, was in Rosewood.
Who hit Ali that night?
Charlotte, thinking she was Bethany.
Who killed Bethany?
Mona Vanderwaal hit Bethany thinking she was Ali and left her there. Melissa Hastings then found Bethany’s body, and thinking that Spencer had hit her with the shovel, she buried Bethany in order to “protect” her sister.
The autopsy had shown that Bethany’s cause of death was from suffocation due to dirt being found in her lungs.
Why was Mrs. D taking Bethany to the horse stables, and why did she give her a pony (Custard)?
Because she was having an affair with Bethany’s father, so by giving her things, she thought this would hide their affair.
Why did Eddie Lamb recognise Aria when he saw her at Radley?
Because he had seen her visiting Spencer when she was in Radley in S3.
44. Who was the mysterious fourth person who showed up at Jenna, Mona and Sydney’s meeting in 5x05?
Who pulled the girls out of the Thornhill Lodge Fire?
Who saved Hanna from the fire?
47. Why was Hanna left in the fire, but not the other girls?
Why was Jessica in Spencer’s room in 4x22?
That was actually Mary Drake. She wanted to see her daughter.

What is the significance of September 7th? (the password to Charlotte’s lair at Carrisimi).
It is the day that Alison (Charlotte’s cousin) went missing.
Marlene said we had seen the twin (Mary Drake) once before. When was this?
We had seen Mary in 4x22; after Spencer had returned from rehab, Mary snuck into the Hastings house dressed as Jessica to catch a glimpse of her daughter.
58. Who turned Cece into the police at the end of 4x23?
59. Who is Arcturus and the little “Hero” boy in Lucas’ and Charles comic book?
60. What are Charlotte’s true motives on being Big A?
61. Who kidnapped and tortured Hanna?
62. Who is the father of Ali and Emily’s baby?
Who is Board Shorts?
Why was Ali’s car at the Church the night Charlotte was killed?
I don’t think they’ll answer this in the show so I’m going to attempt to answer it. Charlotte ran off from the DiLaurentis house and probably stole Ali’s car and drove to the church to meet Mona. Ali probably borrowed Rollins car to go after Charlotte and when the two fought and Ali didn’t succeed at bringing Charlotte back home, she probably just returned home in Rollins car, leaving her car with Charlotte at the church.
65. What is Mona’s motive for being Original A?
66. Why did the A game start once Aria returned from Iceland?
We’ll continue to add to this list as we can think of questions to add, and as the show goes on. We’ll also add the answers to these questions once they are revealed.
