In the Season 4 finale of Pretty Little Liars, we find out that Alison received a text after leaving Jenna’s house and realizing that she couldn’t be -A. The text sent to Alison “That Night” said, “Bitch can’t see you, but I do. Tonight’s the night I kill you. -A.”
As soon as I seen -A’s anonymous text, I heard Aria’s voice echo in my mind as I remembered her comment in Season 3, Epsiode 2 “Blood is the New Black” after the liars confirm that Jenna can see and has just been pretending to be blind, Aria proclaims “I’m ready to hang a sign: ‘Bitch can see!” Seems like little miss Aria shares a similar vocabulary to the anonymous -A.
I found it even more interesting, that when Spencer opposes the plan to out Jenna so they can use the information to their advantage, Aria’s raised eyebrow and smirk seems to imply she likes Spencer’s plan.
Is it possible that Aria wants to lead the liars down a dead end, if they are focused on Jenna as “A” culprit, it would take any attention off her or whoever else she could be working with, or even just to keep them from uncovering any secrets she doesn’t want to be exposed.
Oh Aria, this bitch can see that you are hiding something!
I.Marlene King just recently tweeted that PIGTUNIA Aria’s pig puppet will make an appearance in the finale on March 18th?
Will we finally have answers about where Pigtunia disappeared to “That Night” when Alison went missing?
We know that Aria took Pigtunia with her everywhere and that her Pig went missing that night too, but somehow found it’s way back to Aria sometime before she left for Iceland, because we see Byron & Ella unpacking her things, and they talk about Aria’s attachment to it.
So, could Marlene’s tweet be a clue that we might finally get some answers about Pigtunia’s mysterious disappearance? Or will Pigtunia just be making another Cameo appearance in the finale?
Either way, it seems I. Marlene King could be validating the fact that Aria’s precious little pig puppet may have some significance, and it could be a clue that Aria might have left the barn that night too?
There is a great theory with all the detAils about Pigtunia’s disappearance that you can find on tumblr about Aria and her Pig Puppet here:
In this episode we see Aria dressed in striped outfit, and I have to wonder if they made this costume choice for a reason? If it was symbolic of something, like prison stripes? Perhaps to imply that Aria is guilty of something?
Now, I know that the show creators have used wardrobe to represent different things and possibly even serve as potential clues. For example, when the writers were questioned about the future of Ezria in Season 4, Maya Goldsmith tweeted to her fans about their relationship that “There is no endgame without it being tested” and “Bones are always stronger in the places they were broken.” Now, we know that Ezria is about to face one of their relationship biggest challenges and oddly enough, in the upcoming episode when the liars are faced with the decision to tell Aria about Ezra, she is going to be wearing a dress with BONES all over it. Could Aria’s bone dress have been chosen because she is about to suffer a break in her relationship. But, not to worry Ezria fans, it seems that there is still an Endgame in sight according to the clues given by Maya Goldsmith, they just may have to go through some hard times before things get better.
Anyways, with that being said, maybe they did choose this outfit for Aria for a reason? Stripes look good on a guilty girl?
I would also like to mention how -A it is of Aria to be Rosewood’s expert on photography as she helps Paige by giving her tips about her camera. <3
When the liars decide it’s finally time to tell Aria about Ezra they go to her house and discover through the window that they are together, kissing each other. Aria is wearing a leopard print dress.
Immediately it cuts to the ending ‘A’ scene and it’s back in black and white. It appears to be dressing room we saw Alison in during Spencer’s little hallucination. First, we see a vanity with several items including a MASK and a MIRROR, Perhaps sympobolic that -A is wearing a mask, and who is ALWAYS looking in the mirror…Miss Aria. That could just be Alison’s stuff, and Alison herself is pretty vain and also trying to conceal her identity. More importantly, the camera pans to a leopard print fabric, and it just so happens that it looks like the dress that Aria was actually wearing that night. Why did they decide to show it? Because, it is significant for some reason? The leopard fabric has two shards of glass laying on top of it. After that we see the message from -A on the vanity mirror, that says. ”BREAK A LEG. KISSES. A.”
Could this be a message from Aria to Alison? To break a leg literally? Is that why there is broken glass? Was Alison upset about getting this message.
Or could this a message that means “Break A leg” in the theatrical sense. Like someone is about to give a BIG performance? Spencer did once say to Aria “God, you deserve an Oscar for that performance.” implying just how good Aria is at lying and having everyone around her completely fooled. In the upcoming episode, we know that Aria is going to have a MAJOR meltdown, and IF Aria does know about Ezra already, could this just be another one of her Oscar worthy performances?
In the (4x20) “Free Fall” Sneak Peek we see Mona and Mike on a date. To Mona’s surprise Ezra walks into the restaurant.
Now, we know that Mona and Ezra are working together in some capacity. Did Ezra put Mona up to dating Mike in an attempt to get closer to Aria. Previously we seen her at the Montgomery House, possibly sneaking around Aria’s room. If Ezra did put Mona up to this, I find it interesting that even Ezra may believe that Aria is hiding something.
In the (4x20) sneak peek, Mona excuses herself from the table with Mike and approaches Ezra and tells him she can’t help him anymore, that things have gotten too complicated. He reminds her that she can’t back out now when he needs her help. Does Mona want to quit working with Ezra because she is developing real feelings for Mike, or doesn’t want to hurt him in the process? And what else does Ezra need Mona’s help for? Is one of her jobs to keep a close eye on Aria?
Now, back to (4x19) Shadow Play, Spencer is looking through the journal, and one of the pages stuck me specifically in relation to this theory. It read:
"So many people want to give you advice so many people whose lives you would never want. Well this is one story that Dream Killer, or Sad Girl, or Prissy Pants, or anyone besides me won’t be writing the ending….there’s only one author on this story and it’s a story that people will be telling for a long time."
Is Aria one of the people that might be trying to write Alison’s story? And with recent potential theories and spoilers, Ezra might also might be one of those people.
So, when Aria is talking about her “creative writing homework” as Ezra called it, could she really be talking about something more real than fiction. Has she developed a fascination with this villain because she see’s herself and possibly Ezra as villains?
Later in the black and white sequence she is talking to Spencer and she refers to her REAL life and relationship with Ezra AS a story.
"It’s been sexy and dangerous, and awful and wonderful, it’s like a story. It was perfect…I think the story’s changing."
Maybe just like the story she is writing in real life. The story may be changing or evolving when it comes to Ezra because in the beginning she didn’t imagine him as being part of her tale.
Now, since Aria has been referred to as “The writer” and also her old babysitter Simone mentioned in (1x14) how she heard Aria had been keeping “intense journals” the summer after Alison went missing while encouraging her to pursue her writing. And now we see in Alison’s journal her concern about someone else trying to write her story, declaring their will only be ONE author, and that is her. Could Aria be one of those people that Alison is talking about?
Spencer is the one who is always the first to discover who is behind the black hoodie, and she has even wore one herself. Is it possible that Spencer is relentless in her hunt for –A because she was responsible for Alison’s “death.” We could assume that there is more than one person or team playing the –A game, and somebody must be out for revenge?
We see Hanna find Detective Holbrook’s investigation board and on it we see what the police have been putting together about their suspects.
When it comes to Spencer they believed that she possibly “Had the most to gain?” by killing Alison. It also says that Alison and Spencer were threatened by each other, and the death could have occurred due to a “Power Play” between them. The police question if Spencer was motivated to kill by “profit”, “passion?”, or “fear?”
A line connects the photograph of Spencer to Aria. Aria’s picture has a sticky note attached to it with the words “WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR HER” with an arrow pointing directly to Spencer.
Could the police have been on to something?
Spencer and Aria have both been referred to as a “Killer”
Mona in (3x07) said “Miss Aria you’re a KILLER not Ezra’s wife.”
Andrew said to Spencer in (4x17) “Wait up, KILLER”
Did Spencer “kill” Alison with Aria as her accomplice? Or did Aria help Spencer cover it up? The police believe Aria would do anything for Spencer.
Now, both girls have motive for wanting Alison dead. Spencer and Alison did have a hostile relationship. Spencer told Alison in (1x15) during an argument. “You are dead to me already” and Alison was blackmailing her.
Aria was also being blackmailed by Alison to expose Byron’s affair that would end her parents’ marriage. Aria begged Alison not to tell her secret, and could have been strongly motivated to protect her family as well as her friend.
Did they act as –A in an attempt to frame other people for Alison’s “Death?” and other people who are trying to expose their lie?
Melissa has claimed that her true intentions have always been to protect Spencer, and maybe she isn’t lying. Melissa has shown that she doesn’t trust at least one of her friends, and I believe that person is Aria.
Melissa was in the Queen of Hearts costume, helping Wilden in an attempt to kill Aria and push her off the A-Train because she believes that good ole saying “Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.” She claims it was by force but Melissa might know that Spencer was involved in Alison’s “death” along with Aria, and believes that Aria will eventually betray Spencer so she went along with it because she knew getting rid of Aria would ultimately protect Spencer.
Aria goes to visit the new counselor Jesse, and she admits the truth about the real source of her anger. “I think the trust is I’m just angry at myself.” They go into his office to talk more. Everyone knows Aria is ALWAYS lying, and no stranger to living a “double life” but she admits to Jesse that she is angry with herself for lying to her boyfriend, and to her friends about her boyfriend because she fears they will not be supportive of their relationship. But when Jesse asks “Why do you feel your friends would disapprove?” it really struck a nerve with Aria.
It could be that what Aria didn’t really share the depth of all her lies to Jesse and when he asked this, it upset her because the real truth about why her friends would be angry at her or disapprove of her is not a secret she wants to tell. So she freaked out, giving Jesse yet again another lie as an excuse to leave abruptly.
And why would Aria be so afraid of her friends disapproval of Ezra, they have always been supportive and also forgiving of the lies she told that have kept their relationship a secret in the past.
As soon as Aria leaves his office, she looks as if she is immediately filled with regret rolling her eyes, as if she knew it was a stupid idea to even tell him anything.
I think that this was an admission of guilt on Aria’s part and her admitting lying to her friends about Ezra, was just scratching the surface of all her lies, that could be why she panicked instead of really opening up.
Oh, Angry Little Aria what secrets are you hiding?
