Did Peter Hastings Kill Alison on Pretty Little Liars? The Mounting Evidence Against Him
We all want to know who "A" is on Pretty Little Liars, but an equally intriguing mystery is the identity of Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) killer — after all, "A" and the murderer definitely don't have to be the same person.
We've taken a look back at all the clues that make us very suspicious that Peter was involved with Alison's untimely death.
He's morally flexible: Back in Season 1, Mr. Hastings told Spencer not to fess up to plagiarism, because he thought her reputation (and the reputation of the family) was more important than doing the right thing. While stealing your sister's paper is nothing like murder, this may have been an early clue that Peter's priorities are seriously screwed up.
The hockey stick: The first moment we became super suspicious of Papa Hastings was during Season 2, Episode 7: "Surface Tension," when he freaked out at Toby (Keegan Allen) just for digging up Melissa's (Torrey DeVitto) old field hockey stick. He didn't help his case by burning the stick while making crazy eyes and ranting. Even more damning? The stick may have belonged to Melissa, but apparently Ali had borrowed it, which means it could have been a very convenient weapon. Is it possible the shovel isn't the only thing that hit Ali that night?
It would be heartbreaking: Producer Lisa Cochran-Neilan says the finale will be "heartbreaking," and according to Ian Harding (Ezra Fitz), the revelation of "A"'s identity won't be the most shocking thing that happens in the episode. Finding out Peter was the killer would be surprising and heartbreaking.
In fact, the main thing that makes us think Peter isn't the killer is that it almost feelstoo obvious.
