Could the fact that Bethany Young is from Bryn Mawr, a town about ten miles from Rosewood, that just so happens to be located in Montgomery county be a clue that there is a connection between Bethany and the Montgomery family?
Aria is by far the MOST jealous liar. Nobody better bat their eyelashes at her man! In this episode we definitely got to see Angry Little Aria again.
As soon as Ezra mentioned talking to Alison to try and get her to do the right thing, Aria pretty much loses it. Now, I know that Aria says she just wants to keep him safe, I believe she was going a little insane with jealousy at the same time. Aria yells at Ezra and makes him promise to stay away from Alison.
Later at The Brew Aria is getting some of Ella’s things…and Ezra see’s Alison. Unable to shake his own need to protect Aria and stick up for her he goes over and talks to her. Aria walks out and see’s him…the look she gives him when he walks back over to her was PRICELESS. Seriously, if looks could kill.
Outside, Aria goes on to yell at Ezra again for lying and breaking his promise.. of course he feels bad, but he had to do what he thought was right. Can’t she see he was just trying to keep HER safe?
That night, she is at home in her room acting like what Ezra did is unforgivable and she will never be able to trust him again….
COME ON, Aria! He did what he did out of LOVE for YOU! I understand her being upset but she went a bit overboard.
This is just another example of many that shows how controlling, quick to anger, and jealous Aria really can be.
Calm down Angry Little Aria, you’re starting to scare Ezra. :(
Emily BLOWS up on Alison, when Alison says she wasn’t there when she ID’ed Cyrus, implying that she wouldn’t understand…To which Emily replies:
"When? When wasn’t I there? When Hanna broke her leg because of -A?
When I almost died in an elevator because I was trying to find out who killed you?
When Spencer checked into Radley because everything your disappearance put us through?”
We know that -A was behind those things that happened to Hanna, Spencer, and Emily but why didn’t Emily mention what happened to Aria on the A-Train? Is it possible the writers didn’t add that to Emily’s little outburst because it had nothing to do with the work of -A?
We know that Wilden was involved in putting Aria in the box and attempting to push her to her death, and Melissa was supposedly the other culprit. Wilden is obviously not -A, and I’ve said it before I do not think that Melissa is either. I still believe that Melissa has been trying to protect Spencer, so I don’t think that she is -A either. Melissa has asked Spencer to leave Rosewood with her for their own safety not once but twice. I still think it is very possible that they may have been trying to get rid of Aria because she is guilty of something big, is -A, or is working with -A.
People have said that -A has never done anything really bad to Aria unlike the rest of the liars, and if what happened to her on the A-Train wasn’t -A’s doing than that would be true. Most of the things that have happened to Aria have ultimately helped her. -A once saved her relationship, tested Zach so her mom didn’t end up marrying a scum bag, told Ella about Byron’s affair, which spared Aria from having to be the one to tell her… Overall the other liars have seemed to suffer more at the hands of -A. So maybe, this is a little clue by the writers that Aria’s near death experience was not orchestrated by -A. I just don’t see why they would choose to leave that out especially considering it could be considered worse than Hanna breaking her leg?
Why did the writers not include Aria’s experience in Emily’s speech when she was trying so hard to make Alison feel guilty for the mess she has made of their lives?
Maybe, just maybe, because -A had nothing to do with it?
Have your ever noticed how unsympathetic Aria can be?
I was went back to watch (2x18) “A Kiss before Lying” and noticed how in this scene with Spencer she showed no real emotion during their #PLLHug. Spencer is seriously broken hearted and pouring her heart out to Aria thinking she was also going through a break-up. Littlle did she know Aria was lying to her all along and was still seeing Ezra. Still, you think she would feel bad knowing her friend is struggling with so much, but NO. Aria even kind of cracks a smile as she hugs her distraught bestie. No tears, no show of emotion on her face. Maybe Aria was more concerned with keeping her lie a secret.
This #PLLHug reminded me of the latest “Hug It Out Moment” in (5x09) “March of Crimes” when she goes to apologize to Hanna. Sure, she apologized and it even looks like she might feel a little bad. But she is definitely not tore up inside like Hanna appears to be. Not a tear was shed there either. Which got me thinking was Aria keeping another secret?
Before they hug Hanna tells Aria that -A stirred the fire… coaxing Zach to hit on her. Aria replies, “It doesn’t matter Hanna, he took the bait.”
Now, when you really think about it. Much like “-A” once saved Aria’s relationship… “-A” just saved Ella from a bad relationship, and a total scum bag. Why would -A want to help Aria’s mom? It appears that -A basically tested Zach to find out Zach’s true motives before Ella married Zach which ultimately spared Ella from future heartbreak. It seems to be like -A was really trying to protect Ella in a way. Much like -A daughter would want to protect her mother. Could Aria’s lack of emotion in this moment be because she knows she put Hanna in this situation and used her to test Zach before her mom said “I Do?”
Remember, she did once threaten Zach in (2x10) “For the record, If you hurt my mom, I will crush your scones.”
Could Aria have been involved in planting “the bAit?”
Aria is about to search the New York Bulletin News online to see if any information has surfaced about Shana’s death.
Before she searches for info on Shana we see her computer screen. There is an interesting headline “Searchers Scour Rubble After Gas Explosion Fire Kills 5 People.”
At the time, that would not appear to mean anything, just random New York News… BUT, just a few episodes later in (5x05) “Miss Me X 100” the Cavanaugh house BLOWS UP, and it is suspected to be a “Gas Leak” that caused the explosion. We do know that Aria was the last person seen inside the house aside from Jenna. Could Aria have been doing a little extrA research online? She is already super paranoid that her role in Shana’s death could be exposed…could the explosion have been planned to possibly get rid of Jenna? The one person closest to Shana that would likely seek revenge if she was aware of what Aria had done? Or was the explosion part of a Bigger plan that Aria could have been involved in outside of her own potential motives? Either way, Aria is looking very suspicious once again. Toby certainly knows it was NOT a gas leak that caused the explosion, and I definitely think it was planned.
Maybe Aria had her part in the plotting and planning of the explosion and cover-up? Perhaps inspired by the local New York Bulletin News? Or is this just another coincidence? Oh wait? I thought there were NO coincidences in Rosewood…
I love how Aria spells her name with the last “A” looking just like the symbolic -A we know so well from Pretty Little Liars in This is a Dark Ride (3x13) I also find it interesting that Aria’s name is erased leaving a single “A.” Like her name is Aria but she also goes by -A. :)
Now, I know what most of you are thinking… that was -A who did that on the Halloween Train and then they drugged Aria, put her into a box then almost pushed to her death. Yeah, well… Obviously Wilden is NOT -A, and Mona told us that Melissa was the other person, which could have been a lie but if it was her, I REALLY don’t think she isn’t -A either…and I truly believe that she is honestly trying to protect Spencer. So if it was Wilden and Melissa or Wilden and someone else… MAYBE, they suspected who -A was and were trying to get rid of that person. Or who they suspected to be involved with -A. If Aria is guilty of something that would explain why someone might want to hurt her. The liars are probably not the only people in Rosewood who are trying to hunt down -A.
So with that being said, let’s get back to Aria and her name spelling…
In The Silence of E. Lamb (5x07) we see Aria’s name as she spelled in on her name tag at Radley. She really does seem to have a very “-A” style handwriting.
I know we have seen similar handwriting all over Rosewood, For example on Chalk Boards, which obviously isn’t Aria’s. But, what I find interesting is that this same type of handwriting is used to spell HER NAME specifically. I have never seen anyone else spell their name in this type of text?
E. Lamb takes notice of Aria the minute he saw her walk into the room. From the look on his face he recognized her immediately.
When Eddie Lamb says her name, he says it perfectly even though he says he probably didn’t pronounce it correctly…I think it’s possible he knew her name. He remembered it. Just like he recognized her, and went on to ask her if she volunteered for the “Reading program” last year? That was a very specific recollection.
We know an unidentified person was visiting Mona in Radley. Could Aria have volunteered for this “reading program” to get her foot in the door? Or could she have been there for something else?
“I feel like we’ve met before.” E.Lamb insists.
Aria tells him No that it’s her first time there. E. Lamb looks very doubtful and suspicious of Aria.
Aria then starts to panic as he leaves the room.
Later, E.Lamb comes in to break up the confrontation between Aria and Big Rhonda. He instantly seems to take the Big Rhonda’s side angrily asking her what she thinks Aria stole from her and insists that she answer him… E.Lamb doesn’t seem to trust Aria AT ALL. I mean with Spencer, you can tell he likes her, and trusts her to some extent. But I think he definitely knows something more about Aria that makes him appear very suspicious by her presence.
As she was leaving he followed he out to her car and approached her. Ultimately he ends up asking her, “What are you looking for?” Obviously, he knows she is up to something, and we know she is… BUT, there is something more here. How did E. LAMB recognize Aria? What does he know about her?
After Aria gets in her car and quickly drives off. E. Lamb makes a call to Ezra. Is that the same call that Ezra refers to when he knocks on Aria’s door confirming that she saw Eddie before he left? It looks like E. Lamb called Ezra to set up a meeting AFTER he confronted Aria BUT never showed. That is a little strange…
Did he want to share his suspicions about Aria, and what he may have known about her among other things?
Ezra seemed to know that Aria saw Eddie Lamb before she left Radley, it’s not clear if she told him at some point, or if E.Lamb mentioned it in his message to Ezra… but it is really suspicious that he went missing just after he questions Aria… Did somebody want Eddie to stop asking questions? Maybe some of those questions were about Aria?
There are a few possibilities as to why Aria acted as if she didn’t know E.Lamb:
1. Aria could have denied meeting him before because she didn’t think he would remember her and she didn’t want him too.
2. She could have multiple personality disorder, which there is some evidence to suggest.
3. She could be the one with a twin or doppelganger.
What is Aria’s connection to Radley and Eddie Lamb specifically?
And YES, we all know Aria has been to Radley before BUT Eddie Lamb remembers MEETING her not just seeing her around. If he met her while visiting Mona or Spencer it wouldn’t have been a secret and she wouldn’t have had to act like she didn’t know who he was, especially to Ezra. When they saw him on the security footage she lead him to believe she didn’t know who he was.
So, did Aria have something to do with The Silence E. Lamb?
Spencer gets a text from Alison. It’s about Mrs. D and how the cops still need to determine her cause of death. To which Hanna and Aria respond:
Hanna: Cause of death. It was a murder, duh!
Aria: Maybe the cops think that she was poisoned?
Hanna: How do we know she wasn’t buried alive?
Wait, back up? Did Aria just suggest that the cops might think that Mrs. D was POISONED? Hasn’t -A been working very hard to make it look like Mrs. D was poisoned and potentially frame Peter Hastings who Aria later throws out the idea that he might be -A?
I mean why would that thought of poisoning even cross Aria’s mind, considering the timing it’s very peculiar.
Because once again Aria appears to be on the same page as -A when she suggests poison as the cause of death. Because -A seems determined to make Spencer believe that Mrs. D was poisoned by her dad.
So, how would Aria know this before she was even told. Where did this idea about poison come from?
