Pretty Little Liars Burning Question: Could Aria Be on the “A” Team?
Astute Pretty Little Liars fans have noted that the color red, especially bright red, has become associated with "A" and the vague conspiracy of shadowy figures that seems to surround Mona (Janel Parrish). Most notably, Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) Vivian Darkbloom coat was red, and the mystery person who visited Mona at the end of Season 2, Episode 25: “UnmAsked” was in red. Also, showrunner Marlene King was rotating through red avatars on Twitter, and indicated that the color was meaningful.
Therefore, some fans took the fact that Aria wore a bright red dress to the Masquerade ball as a sign of something more than bold fashion taste. Could Aria actually be involved with the "A" conspiracy? It's a far-fetched theory, but it would be a huge twist. And, as some fans have noticed, Aria has suffered somewhat less at the hands of "A" than the other Little Liars.
One fan recently asked showrunner Marlene King about this theory via Twitter, asking, "how important was Aria's dress in the finale? Is it possible she is on the a team??"
Marlene, ever cryptic, replied, "it's All in the detAils."
What does that mean? Is Marlene subtly congratulating the fans for catching this clue — after all, the color of Aria's dress is a small detail in the grand scheme of the show — or is she saying that there are details about the costume that show that despite the color, it's not connected to "A"?
