Pretty Little Liars

What Kind of Pills Did “A” Find in Maya’s Bag on Pretty Little Liars?

Last night’s Pretty Little Liars (Season 3, Episode 5: “That Girl is Poison”) was unusual because it actually featured way more drugs and alcohol than we’ve ever seen on the show. Paige (Lindsey Shaw) drank too much, Aria (Lucy Hale) found Milizopam in Lucas’s (Brendan Robinson) camera bag, and “A” found a prescription bottle full of pills in Maya’s (Bianca Lawson) old purse. What exactly were those pills, and what did the label say?

After zooming and contrasting and trying all sorts of things with a close-up of the pill bottle, there are a few clues we can pick up. First, we have a feeling that Maya’s pills are a completely different kind than Milizopam. Why? Two reasons.

The label on Maya’s prescription says, “Take one capsule two times daily with food.” If the fictional Milizopam is supposed to cause deep sedation and memory loss, we can’t see a doctor prescribing it twice daily for a healthy teenager. Second, a closer look at the shape of Maya’s pills reveals that they are two-toned capsules. The Milizopam in Aria’s hands are light blue oblong-shaped pills.

So, just because we saw “A” holding Maya’s pills at the end of the episode doesn’t necessarily tie Jenna (Tammin Sursok) and Lucas to the “A” team after all. Remember that Lucas had the pills “that night,” and Jenna drove “that night.” Still, no proof that “A” was involved.

Still, we have to wonder if “A” is responsible for Maya’s murder. How would “A” have Maya’s bag if he or she didn’t grab it from her just before she died?
