Pretty Little Liars Burning Question: Who Has “Touched” One of the Liars?
In the Pretty Little LiarsSeason 4 Halloween episode, Ms. Grunwald used her mystical second sight on the Liars, warning Aria, Spencer, and Emily (but not Hanna) that one of them has been touched by the one Ali "fears the most."
Obviously, we're supposed to assume that means "A". But who could she be talking about? Ezra is one option, but he's not the only one. We've brainstormed to come up with as many theories as possible about who could fit the criteria of having "touched" one of the Liars in particular.
Ezra. Obvious answer first. Ezra is "A" suspect numero uno right now, and while he may have had brief contact with the other Liars, we think it's fair to say he's touched Aria, and only Aria, in a very special way. Clearly the show wants us to assume Grunwald meant Ezra, and the only reason we think that might not be true is that this is Pretty Little Liars. We know we need to question everything.
Toby. We've already gone down the Toby is "A" path, so we don't really expect the show to go there again. But, like Ezra, he's touched one of the Liars in a way he hasn't the others...
Paige. Another character we don't really suspect because the show has already gone that route, but fair is fair: Like Ezra and Toby, Paige has had special contact with one Liar.
Wren. The fact that Grunwald gave this warning specifically when Hanna wasn't around makes us wonder if her absence is a clue to the answer. Wren has kissed both Hanna and Spencer, but Spencer was the only one there when Grunwald issued her cryptic clue. Coincidence? We'd certainly believe Wren is up to no good...
Melissa. Speaking of suspicious older characters, has Melissa touched any of the Liars other than Spence? We can't think of it happening off the top of our head, and the elder Hastings sister is always on our suspects list.
A parent. Really, any pretty little parent could fall into this category, though if we're going to go in this direction, Mr. Hastings and his hockey-stick burning ways is clearly the most suspect in our eyes.
Who do you think Grunwald was talking about? Ezra, or someone else? Sound off in the comments below!
