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?
