I'm Emily, an awkward British teenager addicted to Pretty Little Liars. This blog is dedicated to theories, clues and everything Pretty Little Liars.
Obviously, you would’ve probably read the majority of this stuff already, but this is my Aria theory.
So I’m going to start with the fact that Aria is the only one doing the ‘shh’ in the opening theme, like she has something to hide.
And in the second one, she’s the only one doing the ‘shh’ whilst Ali’s murder weapon is underneath the table…
Secondly, I’m going to pick up on the whole black swan thing, Marlene said A would be the black swan in that particular episode, and, well:
However, I think there’s a possibility that this was too obvious, and it was infact a trick by the producers/writers to throw you off guard at the fact that Melissa is the real black swan.
Why is Aria the only one in a black hoodie? Coincidence? Nope. When does Aria wear black hoodies? Never.
I think this one looks suspicious, just as Aria looks at her phone, Hannah gets a message from A.
Now this may be nothing seeing as it was a photoshoot that didn’t really have any hints to the show but Aria’s making an odd sign with her hands, and to me, it looks like she’s kind of making an A? This could just be Lucy Hale doing something unknowingly though.
When I first saw this picture I thought they were handcuffs, and then I thought it just looks like chains from the straps around her ankle but I’m still unsure. If they are handcuffs then that’s just digging a deeper hole, because she must be guilty of something.
Regarding the whole ‘masking tape’ thing (y’know, ezra and aria marking the floor with tape, and the rats cages have masking tape on..) I think that has nothing to do with Aria being A, purely because every teacher directing a play marks the area with tape. Unless Aria stole some? But you can get masking tape from anywhere…
And once she tells Hanna’s mum she’s A (I know it was just a lie) she seemed like it actually felt good to get it off her chest, like she needed to tell somebody. But when Ashley and Ella are talking about ‘A’, Ashley doesn’t mention Aria being A?….
We all know that Marlene King said that A would be unmasked at the masquerade ball and Aria was indeed, unmasked.
Then there’s this, the magazine page Aria showed Emily, and then later A was ordering some shoes online, and this was lying on the table. Remember, everything in the A scenes are a clue.
Also, when ‘A’ sends Byron that letter telling him where Aria will be, Aria decides to stay with Holden and texts Ezra telling him they’ll need to reschedule. Firstly, when he receives the text, why does it say ‘Unknown Caller’? Surely he would have his girlfriends number? Maybe she used her A phone, by accident, or maybe so her dad didn’t trace her messages, I don’t know. Secondly, I have a thought in the back of my head that Aria (as A) sent Byron that letter, and then stayed with Holden, I think she did it so her dad would turn up, she wouldn’t be there so he regained his trust in her.
Lastly, I think it’s a massive hint with the whole typewriter thing.
Aria has easy access to Ezra’s typewriter, and the letters that were sent to each of her parents, I believe Aria wrote herself. Like the letter to her mum, she wanted to tell her about her dad’s affair, but that was an easy escape. And I’ve already mentioned Byron’s letter :)
Okay, that was basically my Aria theory, I don’t want her to be A, but I’m pretty convinced she is (or has something to do with it) there is no way she’s completely innocent.
I’ve probably missed out a shite load of stuff but it’s getting late and that’s all I can think of right now.
Thanks for reading my lovelies, and I will be putting out more theories soon!
