This week is supposed to be the Big “A” Reveal on Pretty Little Liars and we just cannot wait. Kris and I have spent so much time sitting around and discussing all the possibilities. We’ve done some reading, and found this post, which states that producer Marlene King has said that A was present in the pilot episode.
So, naturally, we went back to watch it today and come up with a list of every character that appears in that episode. If the statement is true, someone on the below list should be revealed as “A” this week! Here you go, in order of appearance:
- Random lacrosse players
- Random bartender
- Store clerk
- Shoppers in the mall
- Mall security guard
- Emily’s mom (whose name I can’t remember and I’m not bothering to look up)
- The movers at the Dilaurentis house
- Garbage men throwing out boxes from Alison’s room
- Detective Wilden
- Random police officers
- Crowd of bystanders
- Funeral Attendees
- Other newswoman
- A couple that may be Spencer’s parents?
- Mrs. Dilaurentis
- A guy who is maybe supposed to be Mr. Dilaurentis?
- A guy that might be Toby
- Funeral priest
This list is rather extensive and does leave some open space for “A” to be there on a technicality (ie. as a student, or a random police officer), but I’m choosing to think that it will at least be someone that has a name. And hopefully not someone who has been recast throughout the series such as Jason or Mr. Dilaurentis. Some of these characters are also out of the running due to, you know, death. But the other thing is that no one is really dead until you’ve seen the body. Even in the case of one of the theories below, I am questioning whether someone is actually dead.
After some research on the internet, I came across the theory of Maya being behind it all. I actually became fairly convinced about it for a few reasons – check them out here and here – until we came up with another idea.
We’ve also heard rumours that the infamous Twin Theory could come into play, though that Courtney Dilaurentis wouldn’t be the one making the appearance. Could one of the other characters have a twin?
Perhaps it’s Mona. Maybe she has a twin who has been behind everything. This would help to explain Mona’s tortured relationship with the Liars, and could provide some insight into her murder (… or maybe her twin is the one that was killed?).
Who do you think “A” will be revealed as? Let us know your theories in the comments!
