think i know who A is (Spoilers)
This theory fits!!! Mostly. There are still some holes, but a lot of it is spot on. A is not one person. A is Toby, Spencer, and Ian. i think they were involved or blackmailed into being a part of Allie's death. Think about it - they were all there the night of her death. Ian in the video, Toby with the sweater, Spencer left the barn before they all woke up. I think they all did something and then separated to avoid being tied to each other in any investigation. Here comes the next part of my theory. There are 2 sides trying to be "A". The one that started it all was actually Alison, and she has agents she is using to protect/get information out of the girls (except Spencer if she was involved). i think Spencer, Ian and Toby thought Allison was dead, but she might have escaped when they left her. Now that she is far enough away and enough time has passed, she can try to bring her killers to justice by stirring the pot and restarting the investigation...making it a murder instead of merely a question mark. When "A" starts texting, Spencer freaks out. That is when Ian and Toby come back, so they can figure out what they're going to do. If you look closely, when Spencer is at Noel's party, she walks out on the patio by herself and sees Toby staring back at her in the dark. Then she looks at a random guy I always thought was just Toby again but it's NOT!! It looks like the actor who played Ian in an early flashback (they switched actors and got Ryan Merriman when Ian became a big role). Anyways, the theory would take too long to explain in full. But I think Spencer and Toby were getting so nervous in "For Whom the Bell Tolls" they decided to pin it all on Ian by staging the attack on Spencer. I think Ian thought he was part of the staging in some way, to throw the PLL's off the scent that it was all three of them (noone has believed them when they said it was Ian anyway, so it wouldn't change much - no proof). If you look, Ian was trying to pull Spencer up when she was hanging off the side, not down. Because it was supposed to be fake. She is pulling him down, and Ian looks shocked. Then TOBY comes in (who isn't supposed to be there) and Ian says what are YOU doing here? and then he pushes him. I think agents of A moved Ian's body so Spencer and Toby couldn't get off that easy. Whew. I'm exhausted. Thoughts? ""Theory by bohide, inc.
sounds like a good theory....but didnt they find allisons body?....if they found her body-i'm assuming that she is probably actually dead. Also, spencer and Ian had that huge episode between them where Ian tried killing her-and no one else was there besides them two...so im pretty sure that they are not a part of being A together....if either one of them were A...it would only be one of them, and not both.
personally, i think that A mite be mona, or possibly spencers sister! any thoughts on that?
I think that Melissa is A too but A are TWO people, that's for sure. So Melissa and Ian are A
I mean A are at least two people, maybe three but I think that if there are three it is just too complicated. I think there are two A's and one of them is always with them and that person tells everything to the other A.. And the theory of Ali's twin sister.. maybe that's true?
Dang...Shea has a really great theory and it really makes sense. Spencer is one sketchy chick and it's really irritating haha. But then again, so is her dad (who acts like he's on crazy drugs), mayyyybe Toby, Ian, Aria's brother and especially the cop who acts like he is friends with everybody. I'm really leaning toward the cop, Toby, Spencer and Ian because of how they act in each episode. At first I thought it was Mona cuz she purposely screwed everything up for the girls, but then each new episode was like a throw-off.
Wow! Your theory really makes sense. Ian definitely knew the guy who pushed him, so he fell into that ropes. But I'm not really seeing the part that it should be a fake action of Ian to push Spencer. Maybe he feels threatened by Spencer so he will do something to her, I don't think he wanted to kill her. But he really wanted to make her scared so that she knows that she has to watch out for him.
What is the episode called where you are talking about in this part:"If you look closely, when Spencer is at Noel's party, she walks out on the patio by herself and sees Toby staring back at her in the dark. Then she looks at a random guy I always thought was just Toby again but it's NOT!! It looks like the actor who played Ian in an early flashback (they switched actors and got Ryan Merriman when Ian became a big role)."
I really want to see that part again, to see if you are right about it.
I think A is trying to get Ian, Toby and Spencer out of her way. She/he already killed Ian and A wanted to make Spencer disappear in that episode when they went to the fair. Or wasn't that A who pushed Spencer into that thing where she was locked up?
In the last episode when Toby found that hockeystick thing, he was shocked that he found it and that Spencer's dad was acting that weird. Maybe he really knows more about it and Spencer and Toby are getting really close.
But if A wants to scare them, why isn't she/he texting Toby and Ian too? Or aren't they showing that texts to us?
i actually agree with SHEA because it makes sense and spencer never got those messages from A just that she needed to tell about her essay i guess but that probably was ian or toby and i do agree that the person who pushed ian must be someone that ian knew. you just saw it in the reaction right? i always thought that A didn't kill alli and also doesn't know who killed her.
How about Garrett? His relationship with Jenna would answer the why is Jenna so involved question. AND he said to Jason in the last episode that now that he is a cop it is more important now than ever that the secret not be found out. He is never around when things happen which could lead to believe that he is always mysteriously lurking.
I also think it's a possibility that Mike might know more than he is letting on. Espcially about Jason since he may have seen the photographs of Aria when he broke into Jason's. Maybe he is involved somehow...helping Jason, perhaps?
What about Maya? Think about it.
She had access to Ali's house when she moved in early on in Season One. She could have found secrets about all the girls to harass them with if Ali left things behind when she died.
Emily is the one who is being targeted THE MOST. Why would Maya target her mostly? Because she's mad that Emily is choosing other girls over her (Samara, Paige, etc.)
Also, Maya comes back next episode...and Dr. Sullivan finds out who "A" is...coincidence? Nope.
