PLL Theory: Toby is Charles/ Big A, CeCe is Red Coat/ A, Melissa is Uber A: A PLL Novel

I haven't posted in awhile, so I am sharing a PLL theory that I worked really hard putting together. I'd appreciate reblogs if you have tumblr, or other types of sharing so that more people can check it out too. It includes a LOT of PLL characters; the ones in the title play the biggest role, but they have help from people like Wren, Wilden and MORE.

Here it is: Click here for the theory!

Don't miss this one. I'll be forcing myself to get back on the tv+ broken laws topic, but for now I hope you enjoy my other writing!

Why TOBY might have thrown the rock at Ali on PLL ~Theory~

A fan on my facebook page, sent me a few questions about the possibility of Toby being the person who threw the rock at Ali, as we saw somebody do in the season 4 finale of "Pretty Little Liars." While we wait for PLL to return tomorrow night, I figured I'd post those questions and my answers/opinions here!

*FAN Q&A with Noelene Peters. My answers are in bold. Please weigh in, in the comments!*
"There are a lot of Theories going around that A and the person that hit Ali are two different ppl

I think Toby is the one that hit Ali he may have thanked her for saving him from Jenna because he didn't want Ali to catch on to him that he hates her and her friends (in a flash black Ali went to see him and he told her he wish he knew who sent the notes so he can join and help) I think Toby is helping A from season one and he has never been a good guy." 

Regarding the juvie flashback and Toby removing himself from Ali's suspect list--

According to Alison's journal and the flashback we saw, Toby denied being the first "A," but said that he would love to figure out who it was so that he could help the person. How do we know that Toby DIDN'T do this? It could've been Alison's downfall to confront Toby with the "A" notes. When he got out of juvie, he could have somehow figured out that Mona was the person sending Ali those notes and made good on his comment that he'd help "A." 

The night Ali disappeared/the night the rock was thrown at her head, Ali confronted Jenna about being "A" as well. Jenna is Toby's step sister, and that is one of MANY ways that Toby could have figured out that Alison was determined to figure out the identity of "A" that exact night. To take himself off the suspect list, he could have called her and made his "thank you" speech. Telling Alison that he was grateful to her because going to juvie got him away from Jenna is the perfect method to get himself off of her suspect radar. We don't know of anything that changed in between Alison's visit to Toby at juvie and the night of her disappearance, meaning we don't know of any reason that Toby would change his mind about the way he felt towards Alison. We have NO reason to believe what Toby told Alison on the night she disappeared; it could have been part of a calculated plan. 

Also, Mona was stalking Ali at the time Ali visited Toby at juvie. She could have somehow found out about Toby's comment that he'd help "A" if he got the chance. Also, Toby is aware of how Alison treated people she didn't like; he most likely knows about the way Alison bullied Mona at school. It's not that far of a stretch for him to figure out that Mona was "A." After all, we DID see him eventually join the "A" team with Mona, and his reason he provided Spencer for this makes no sense, nor does Mona's timeline of events. Toby has failed to actually provide ANY example of how his time on the A team "protected the girls." 

In the episode where the girls tricked "A" into meeting them at the green house by leading "A" to believe they were fighting, Toby commented to Spencer that she sounded exactly like Alison when she yelled at Emily. That supports my idea that Toby remembers clearly how Alison treated people like Mona. Toby has made other negative remarks about Alison throughout the show too, which don't mesh well with the contention that he was grateful to Alison. Perhaps he never was grateful; perhaps he came back to get revenge for "The Jenna Thing." Maybe his first course of action was to throw a rock at Alison's head.

"1. The girls locker room when Toby hits Ben no one question why he was there."

Regarding Toby getting in the girls' locker room and defending Emily

It is a very "A" type move for Toby to sneak into the girls locker room, unnoticed, and beat the hell out of Ben. Since Toby knew how Alison behaved, he could have even knew of Emily's status as "the weakest link." Also, we saw Emily and Toby talk in a semi-friendly manner in the Halloween flashback which took place when Ali was still alive. Also, he was one of the first people to figure out that Emily was interested in girls. How did he know that? It's possible he even knew that Emily had been in love with Alison; maybe he felt bad for Emily because of how she was treated and decided to befriend her.

"2. After finding out that Em is not into guys he then goes for Spencer why not date someone other than the liars."

Regarding Toby's dating Spencer after learning that Emily was into girls--

This is another good point. Toby made it clear in the juvie flashback that he was not fond of Alison or her "posse." Even if he changed his mind about Emily, he knew that Spencer strongly believed that "killed" Alison. Are we supposed to believe that he's naive enough to forgive Spencer so quickly for the horrible way she treated him until the charges against Toby were dropped? Do we even know how that sweater Toby let Alison wear even wound up at Toby's house? We know that somebody was framing him, but it would be really clever if he actually planned the whole sweater idea on his own so that the girls wouldn't suspect that he was A/part of the A team. 

I don't think that Alison was still wearing the sweater when she returned to the barn and when she was hit by the rock. Where did that sweater disappear to? I don't even think Alison had it with her when she was at the hotel with Mona in the finale, so where did it go, and how did it wind up back at Toby's house? This reminds me of the "A" text Emily received when Toby was hiding from the police, "Thanks for getting Toby out of my way." I always thought it was possible that Toby sent that himself, just like I think it's possible that he was responsible for the sweater being found. Also, Jenna once made a remark that it was Emily's fault that the sweater was found (when she was accusing Emily of calling the cops on Toby). Jenna could have just been acting like a bully, but her remark could possibly have a deeper meaning. Jenna knew that Emily didn't call the cops, since Jenna was the one who did that. If Jenna suspected/knew that Toby had something to do with "A," maybe she blamed Emily for the sweater turning up because she figured out that Toby planted the sweater on himself to make it look like he wasn't "A." 

"3. In season one I can't remember the ep Jenna asked Toby why are you doing this she is going to hate you when she finds out Toby reply was and who is going to tell her. Everyone including me assume it was about the relationship they had now I think Jenna was talking about him being on the A team."

Regarding comments Jenna made to Toby in season 1

Jenna told Toby that if she found out who he really was, she'd hate him. We didn't know it back then, but we DO know now that Alison confronted Jenna and mentioned the threats she had been receiving from "A." Perhaps if Jenna is not involved with "A" at all, she suspected and/or figured out that Toby was one of the people behind these threats. Think about this: apparently Jenna thought that GARRETT "killed" Alison, yet she called the police on Toby and claimed she did this because she couldn't have him "walking around like a criminal." If Jenna knew that Toby wasn't at all involved with what happened to Alison, then what did she mean by that comment? Maybe she called the police because she thought Toby was "A"/on the "A" team. If Jenna "knew" that Garrett "killed" Ali, and judging by the power she had in her relationship with Garrett, she shouldn't have had to worry about Toby ACTUALLY being found guilty of killing Alison. 

"As for why Mrs D never told anyone about Toby hitting Ali with the rock is because Toby knew Mrs D covered his mum death or maybe he knew the patients Mrs D was covering for"

Regarding the possibility that Mrs. D would cover for Toby if he threw the rock--

I have thought about this also. Regardless of what Toby actually knew at the time about what happened to his mother, we know that Mrs. D is on the board of Radley. If she even THOUGHT that Toby knew that she was involved in the cover-up of his mom's death, that's a pretty good reason for her to keep her mouth shut if Toby was the one who threw the rock.

Never Turn Your Back on a Hastings. Especially If They're Twins-- Jason and CeCe Twin Theory

This is a theory about the possibility of Jason and CeCe being fraternal twins in "Pretty Little Liars." It's based on some old episodes, and a lot of what happened in the end of the most recent season (season 4).

Here are some clues:

--This started off by my friend, Mary, saying that she thinks CeCe is Mrs. D's daughter and that she believes CeCe threw the rock at Ali's head. Everyone's assuming it must have been one of Mrs. D's children who did this to Alison in order for Mrs. D to protect the person, and this would be a nice
alternative to the obvious choice, Jason. Jason also did say that he saw CeCe there that night.

PLL Shadow Play... If I May -- Special Rhyming Recap of PLL 4x19

The most recent episode of "Pretty Little Liars" was a themed, film noir special that took place in Spencer's mind. Since I don't hold anyone accountable for what they do in their dreams, instead of writing about the broken laws, I did my own version of a special recap. It rhymes. :)

Shadow Play... if I May

It starts like any other day
That episode  of Shadow Play
The girls find the stolen diary fast
in a drawer in Ezra Fitz's class!
Mona arrives when the girls left
She still scares them all to death.

Then Ezra and Aria speak
A conversation scary and deep
They talk about Aria's writing
She finds her villain so exciting.

But Spencer's mind cannot stay still
Because she takes too many pills.
Her mind makes time go back so far
We break into a film noir.

Alison FitzLaurentis Theory: Could Alison DiLaurentis and Ezra Fitz be RELATED on Pretty Little Liars?!

What if Ali is secretly EZRA'S YOUNGER SISTER?! Recall that in season 1,  EZRA TOLD ARIA in season 1 that his parents had cheated on each other but in the end it wasn't their infidelity that tore them apart.  Ezra wondered if Aria's parents had an "arrangement" similar to his parents' situation.  Maybe Ezra's father cheated on Creepy Diane "FitzScary" with Jessica DiLaurentis.  Perhaps they had a differing of opinion when it came to how Alison would be raised.  Maybe THAT is what tore them apart.

 Perhaps Ezra JUST RECENTLY found out about all of this. The MAGGIE/MALCOLM story seems pointless now that Malcolm isn't Ezra's son -- unless he found out OTHER information when getting his DNA tested.  Ezra jumped at morphing into a father figure when he found out about Malcolm being his "son."  He's the type of guy that would set out to find his sister immediately upon learning that he had a sister.  He could have done exactly that; He could have realized exactly who the sister was (Alison), then FIGURED OUT that Ali was ALIVE but had to KEEP IT FROM ARIA because he also discovered that somebody was out to get Alison and would have no problem taking down her friends to do it.  Next, he created the lair to SPY ON THE GIRLS so that he could have excuses for/ WAYS OF randomly showing up just in time to save the day (Halloween episodes "This is a Dark Ride," and "The Grave Truth," for example.  In "This is a Dark Ride," Ezra claimed that he went to the end of the line to surprise Aria, but HE was the one who seemed shocked.  Maybe that's because he saw Aria get drugged and put in the box from the lair, RUSHED to get there, but since he couldn't monitor what was happening during his drive, assumed the worst: that Aria got hurt or killed.

In "The Grave Truth," he just happened to call Aria right when the girls got to the cemetery (which he likely knew they were going to b/c of the lair), warn her to be careful, THEN show up to drive the girls home when Spencer had a flat tire.  As if that's not enough, right when Alison was spilling that she was afraid of somebody dangerous, she suddenly made the "shhh" signal and disappeared RIGHT WHEN Ezra showed up because "Aria forgot her phone."

PLL: CeCe Drake, Melissa Hastings & Ali : What REALLY Happened?

I was perusing the PLL message board on IMDB's website, and I found a post whose author inquired whether or not CeCe and Melissa are working together on Pretty Little Liars.  I credit the author of that post for triggering me to think about this more.  Here are my thoughts on the subject:

The whole thing with CeCe is weird. We've seen flashbacks of CeCe and Ali where they clearly got along well, one of which took place during the summer before Ali disappeared. If it's true that Ali got CeCe kicked out of school and CeCe hates her for it, exactly when did that take place? It would have had to have happened sometime BEFORE the flashback of Ali telling CeCe that she might be pregnant, and if that's true, why were CeCe and Ali still on good terms during that summer? 

Also, IF we're buying into that story, we're also supposed to believe that (as you said) CeCe started visiting Mona in Radley after finding out that she was in there because MELISSA called and told her. Think about this for a minute. Melissa claims that she got an anonymous text threatening her & that's why she had to dress as the black swan and "distract Jenna." She said she believed the text came from Mona, and when we heard this story from Lucas, he thought the same thing. I have about a million problems with this, lol, so try and bare with me. 

1) If Melissa believes that Mona was threatening her, why would she want to help her later by getting CeCe to visit Mona in Radley? Melissa is, to say the least, not the nicest girl in the world, but would she really want to help a girl who not only threatened her, but spent the past year tormenting her sister and friends? If so, WHY? 

2) If Melissa is working with Jenna, why would she comply with a text message instructing her to distract Jenna? 

3) Distract Jenna from what? In the same episode, we know that Jenna had some sort of plan for that night ("they're all going to be at the party, you know what you need to do"). Don't get me started on that person Jenna was talking to turning out to be Shana; that's a story for a different day. But: 

4) Did Mona find out about Jenna's plan (whatever it may have been) and send those texts to Melissa and Lucas to stop her from going through with it? Did Mona send them any texts at all? Maybe it wasn't her. When Lucas told his story to Hanna, he said that Mona sent him this anonymous text AND he said that Mona tried to run him over. We know that he was incorrect about the second part; we saw that it was TOBY that tried to run him over. How do we know that Mona really sent those texts? Maybe Jenna sent the texts wanting Melissa and Lucas to believe that Mona did it, and this was her way of starting her OWN team. 

5) Am I the only person who finds it odd that Jenna and Melissa would work together when both of them dated Garrett, first of all, and second, Melissa knows Jenna is the reason Garrett was arrested. Jenna screwed Garrett over by turning in page 5 of Ali's autopsy report to the police, and Melissa claims that Garrett is the only guy out of all the guys she's dealt with who was always honest with her. Why on Earth would she and Jenna work together? My only guess is because they both want the videos. 

6) If CeCe hated Ali like Wren says, why wouldn't Jason think to mention this piece of information to Spencer and the other girls? If CeCe despised Ali, I highly doubt she's hanging out with her old friends with good intentions. 

I hope in season 4, this crazy knot that's been tied between all sorts of characters begins to unravel into something that makes sense.  I'm especially excited for Jenna's story; she's been an interesting character from the very beginning.  See my post on my TV & The Law website about season 1, episode 2, of Pretty Little Liars, "The Jenna Thing" to refresh your memories on the beginning of Jenna Marshall's complicated story.  

Theory/Comment on the A-Team, their lack of Communication, and Why Anyone can be "A" in Pretty Little Liars

First of all, I want everyone who reads this blog to know that I've recently started another blog that I think you might be interested in as well.  It is a TV Recaps & the Law website that essentially recaps episodes of TV shows AND includes detailed information about the broken laws in the episodes.  I started with Pretty Little Liars (surprise, surprise), but will be adding more shows.  Come check out the main page here.  The most recent entry is on PLL episode 5, "Reality Bites Me."

NOW, onto my rant about the A Team: 

Did anybody else think it was odd that in the season 3 finale, when Spencer was on the A-Team, it was implied to us that when members of the A-Team communicate with each other, they still sign their texts as "A?" 

We saw Spencer text Toby to meet her at the Grille, and she signed that message from "A." Toby showed up to the Grille expecting Mona, which suggests that he's received similar messages from Mona in the past. 

I feel like this leaves SO much room for abuse. If this is the way the A-Team members communicate, it's no wonder we don't know who's on the team. Do they even know who's on the team? Anybody can buy one of those phones that sends anonymous texts (we've seen the girls do it to Ian in earlier episodes), and therefore anyone can send one of the known A-Team members a text message and sign it "A." Is that all it takes to mess them up? If so, it would be easy for anyone who learned this information to mess with/threaten etc anybody they wanted via text messages and sign those text messages as "A" to guarantee that nobody would suspect them. 

That could be how, if there are two teams, the second one came to exist. Maybe the other team consists of people who have received texts from "A." If that's true, it's possible that some of them might suspect that the PLLs sent them texts from "A." 

The way they showed the scene with Spencer and Toby, anyone in the entire town could become "A" if they wanted to. In fact, I think I'll go to Rosewood now, buy a black hoodie and a prepaid phone and take care of business, lol. It seems so absurd to me.

PLL: Rough Thoughts on Toby's A-Team Involvement

This is my jumbled up blurb of an attempt to explain why it makes sense that Toby would have joined Mona on a member of the A Team, and why he still might be the one who tried to save Emily.

Why is Toby on the A Team?/ Is Toby the one who called Emily saying, “get out,” and if so, why?

--Mona says at the end that she wouldn’t have come out that night if she knew that Nate would get Garrett out.  She chalked it up to even the best plans going awry.  She said that she wished she and Toby got to make the phone call (to Maya’s cell phone) which would make the liars think “OMG Paige is the killer.” 

**Also: Marlene King posted a picture of the scene where Mona says "change of plans" to another person on the "A" team.  Some people think that, that person was NOT Toby, but Marlene King's caption for the photo is "Your first glimpse of @keeganallen as A."  So Mona was talking to Toby when she said that there's a change of plans.  I'm pretty sure this was when Mona realized that Nate had kidnapped Paige and therefore their plans to frame her were not going to work as planned.

Potential explanation: Toby’s reason for being on the A team could originate with the girls accusing him of killing Ali.  Maybe he was being honest when he said that being accused of murdering Ali made him a lot less quick to judge people.  So maybe he was even less quick to judge somebody like Mona.  Toby seemed extremely frustrated with the fact that Spencer was STILL quick to assume that the easy suspect was the killer.  He was really annoyed that Spencer was still convinced that Garrett killed Ali even after she, herself, found and helped turn into the police, evidence that proved otherwise.  

Maybe he joined the A team to teach the girls a lesson about being so quick to assume the worst about innocent people, while trusting the wrong people.  After all, he's "got friends in all the wrong places and misery loves company."

Pretty Little Liars: Who the hell is going to betray everyone?

Fans of Pretty Little Liars know that ABC Family has revealed and promoted the fact that one of 12 suspects is going to betray everyone.  I am composing a blog post in attempt to figure out who is going to betray everyone this time. I have a feeling this won't be the last time someone betrays everyone, but right now I'm focusing on this particular one.  Long story short, I have narrowed the list of 12 people down to two suspects.  In order of likelihood in my opinion, they are 1) Lucas and 2) Ezra.
**ETA: Ashley Marin is a suspect too: Watch it be really basic... B is for betrayal & as we learned from the braille incident, B= #2. Ashley= #2 on the suspect list when they had it in alphabetical order.

 If you would like to read why, check out my detailed reasoning below. :

PLL: Why Lucas and Noel might be working together as "A" STARTING FROM THE BEGINNING

**This post now includes theories coming from the entire season 1 (Episodes 1-22)! This post is separated into sections according to which episodes I came up with the theories. I know this is VERY long, so I thought that would make it easier.

Edit: PLEASE SEE THE LAST PARAGRAPH IN THE NOTES FROM EPISODE 12***. It is in bold and italics just like the writing here and it's something I just noticed.


**NOEL and LUCAS as “A” theory
