Who Is “A”? Our Top 4 Suspects From Pretty Little Liars Season 3, Episode 16
So, you’re still dying to know who else is on the “A” team on Pretty Little Liars. Don’t worry — we’ve got our crack team of sleuths on the case, analyzing every clue for your mystery-solving pleasure.
And don't forget to check out our 10 Burning Questions from the episode for even more hints and clues!
4. Paige McCullers Why she might be “A”: We’re still worried that PigskinPaige (Lindsey Shaw) is up to no good, since she’s clearly not an Ali fan. And the fact that she made plans with Caleb this week to try to find A’s lair makes us worried about whether she’s a member of the “A” team and is planning to get Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) off course. Long story short: Yes, we agree with Emily (Shay Mitchell) about Paige needing to see a shrink.
Why she might not be: Paige helped Emily attempt to track down Toby (Keegan Allen) in the woods last week, which is probably not something an “A” team member would have done. Also, Paige has lately seemed like a really good girlfriend to Emily. Then again, Toby seemed like a good boyfriend, too, and we all know how that turned out.
3. Wren Kingston Why he might be “A”: Whenever someone gets drugged on PLL — which seems to happen way too often — we assume Wren (Julian Morris), a.k.a. Rosewood’s only apparent doctor, is responsible, given his access to prescription drugs. True, Meredith was seen trying to buy prescription meds herself, but Wren could still have given her some or let her know which ones to get.
Why he might not be: In all likelihood, Meredith is not “A”-affiliated and is just crazy, so maybe Wren isn’t working with her after all. Plus, Wren and Toby haven’t seemed to be best buds in the past, and you’d think they’d be chummier if they were both on the same side. You know what people say: Friends who stalk together, stay together.
2. Aria Montgomery Why she might be “A”:Aria (Lucy Hale) asks Ali if she sees “A,” as if Aria is trying to get a sense of whether Alison (Sasha Pieterse) is aware of Aria’s secret identity as leader of the “A” team. Also, we’re suspecting Meredith and Byron (Chad Lowe)had something to do with Ali’s murder, so maybe Meredith was poisoning Aria because she knows Aria is “A” and knows Aria has been messing with her.
Why she might not be: Aria seems befuddled as to what her dad did on the night of Ali’s death, and we’re pretty sure this is info “A” would already have. Still, “A” is a master of deception, meaning perhaps Aria’s playing innocent to Byron as part of one big, bad con.
1. Alison DiLaurentis Why she might be “A”: It’s almost ridiculous how many clues we got about Ali being “A.” Ali’s visit to Aria suggests she’s still alive, and Ali’s comments about seeing “A” everywhere and about knowledge being king seem to be sly hints that she’s “A.” Plus, Mona (Janel Parrish) tells Toby “she” is in charge, meaning “A” is likely female. And Hanna (Ashley Benson) sees someone in a red coat and blonde hair outside the boutique before she’s attacked. We know Vivian when we see her!
Why she might not be: Uh, we’re going to go ahead and say this section is “not applicable,” since there really isn’t any solid reason to doubt Ali being “A” at the moment. Prove us wrong, Ali.
