Pretty Little Liars Burning Question: What Guy Did Maya Hook Up With at True North?
One of the more painful moments in Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Maya’s (Bianca Lawson) relationship on Pretty Little Liars occurred when Maya returned to Rosewood in Season 2. Maya had spent time at True North, a rehab-meets-reform school, after her parents caught her with pot in her room, and she’d hooked up with a guy while there.
Thanks to PLL fan @iaddictedtoPLL, we've been reminded of this burning question: Who do you think that guy was? It's possible it was just a random guy we've never met, but what if it was a character we know?
We know that Maya’s first preference is clearly girls, so it must have been someone impossibly gorgeous and intriguing, right? Two names come to mind, especially since Maya was spotted talking to them intimately in the weeks before she disappeared and, later, wound up dead.
In Season 2, Episode 18: “A Kiss Before Lying”, Emily is still reeling from the news that Maya hooked up with with someone else, let alone a guy. When she and her mom make dinner plans with Maya, Em walks into the restaurant and spots Maya talking to Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) in a flirty, almost intimate way. Maya claims that Noel was just helping her with her phone, but Emily doesn't seem to believe her. Could Noel be the guy that Maya had a fling with?
Then, in Season 2, Episode 20: “CTRL:A”, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) saw Maya talking to Jason (Drew Van Acker) in a similar, eerily familiar way, as if they knew each other. Jason never explains the conversation, but later that night, Maya gets stoned and demands that Emily run away to California with her. When Emily refuses, Maya leaves, and was never seen or heard from again.
Could it really be a coincidence that Maya had conversations with both Noel and Jason (who, we should point out, both have ties to the NAT club) just days before she skipped town? Could one of them be the guy she hooked up with? Jason would actually have a good reason to be at True North, since he counsels troubled kids for a living. And Noel, well, Noel is just hot. No explanation needed.
Who do you think Maya hooked up with? Is it someone we’ve never heard of or met before? And will we ever find out? Share your theories in the comments below!
