Pretty Little Liars Crazy Fan Theory: Maya Knew Alison Was Alive

Pretty Little Liars is a show built on twist after twist, so fans have to think outside the box to keep ahead of the writers. No wonder it has one of the most creative fanbases on the interwebs! Every Friday, we like to pluck a Pretty Little Liars fan theory out of the wilds of Tumblr to examine. You never know what might turn out to be right!

This week, we want to talk about the theory that Maya St. Germain (Bianca Lawson) knew Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) was alive, and died for the knowledge.

Why does this theory interest us? Here are a few of the reasons it seems possible.

"Maya knew." Remember that whole cryptic "Maya knew" clue Mona dropped back in Season 3? We were always hoping that Maya's death was connected to the biggest story. What if she knew Alison was alive? What if someone killed her to keep her quiet? (Or perhaps someone was trying to get that info out of her, which led to a fight that ended her life...)

The Noel connection. Noel was helping Maya. We now know that Noel was also helping Alison. Coincidence? Maybe not. Could Noel be how Maya knew about Ali? Maybe they were even staying at Noel's cabin at the same time...

What do you think of this theory — is it possible, or totally crazy? Sound off in the comments below.
