15 ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Questions We’ll Never Get Answers To

After the Pretty Little Liars series finale, we finally know the identity of “A.D.”! It was a thrilling, emotional, and jam-packed episode, but it didn’t answer all of our questions.

No shade to our favorite show, Pretty Little Liars, but we still have these lingering questions that will probably never get answered (barring some potential spin-off that addresses them).

In particular, we’re still bugged by these 15 questions. Scroll through to see if you agree.

1. Why did we never see Bethany Young’s adult face?

1. Why did we never see Bethany Young’s adult face?

We are still dying to know the entire deal with Bethany Young, but the one reason it still lingers in our mind is this fact: We never saw her (non-child) face!

In pictures and drawings, her face was blurred; on the news, they didn’t show what she looked like. There had to have been a reason! PLL theorists like The Outlast suspected Spencer’s twin would end up being Bethany Young. So, we never saw her face because her face was Troian Bellisario's.

As we know now, that isn’t the case. Are we going to find out in an interview from Marlene King 10 years from now that Bethany was going to factor into the finale, but then they couldn’t make it work? We’d bet on it.

2. What did Maya know?

2. What did Maya know?

Curse the PLL gods for this most iconic unresolved mystery! Our girl Mona warned the Liars that “Maya knew,” with her coded message “Miss Aria you’re a killer, not Ezra’s wife.” But then we get this weird explanation that Maya had nothing to do with the “A” mystery, that she was killed by stalker Lyndon James.

So what the heck did Maya know?! We're going to have to make up a story for ourselves on this one.

3. Why did Wren turn on Spencer?

So, let’s get this straight: Wren meets Spencer’s secret twin, falls for her, and then just casually helps her out while she tortures someone Wren used to have serious feelings for. How did Wrencer become Wralex so easily?

OK, maybe we can be convinced on this because Wren has always been a flakey love partner, but we’re not totally buying it. We would kill to hear Wren’s side of the story, but as we now know, Alex made sure that wasn’t possible by wearing him as a diamond around her neck.

4. Who was Melissa talking to That Night?

It’s an iconic moment, as the camera pans and we see Melissa Hastings talking to CeCe Drake the night Alison was buried alive. But Charlotte claimed during her “A” reveal that she never talked to Melissa.

Hm… so who was Melissa talking to? Was it Alison? Was it Bethany Young? Was Charlotte lying and it was her? We’ll never know.

5. What were Noel Kahn's motives?

5. What were Noel Kahn's motives?

Noel Kahn is our favorite high school bro-turned-decapitated villain, but we’ll never quite understand what the heck he was doing all wrapped up in this Alex drama.

He’s been around since the beginning and he helped Alison run away and stay hidden, but he’s always been shady. Then in the five years forward he went full-throttle villain, and we found out that he was the one who put the fake blood around Spencer in the Dollhouse. 

Alex tells us Jenna recruited Noel to look for Mary’s other daughter (aka Alex), and Jenna says Noel was desperate for money after his parents cut him off, but OMG there’s a huge step between that and literally trying to murder a whole group of people. WTF, Noel?

6. Why did Archer hide his British accent?

6. Why did Archer hide his British accent?

When we get the whole “Alison’s husband is evil” reveal we knew was coming, we also find out he’s British. Did he really have to hide that from everyone? Did he really think if he was just a British guy everyone would think, “oh he must be doing evil things with Wren Kingston, the only other British guy we know!”

Though TBH, when we found out Archer was British, all us fans immediately thought of Wren, so maybe he made the right call.

OK, this one doesn’t keep us up at night because it’s just a fun little game the writers are playing with fans now.

In the series finale, the moms all talk about the night they got out of the DiLaurentis basement, but they never actually tell us how. It’s actually pretty cute.

8. Who is Beach Hottie?

8. Who is Beach Hottie?

The answer to this question has been alluded to off screen — Detective Darren Wilden — but in the context of the show, we never learned whose baby Alison thought she was pregnant with back during her time in Cape May.

9. How did Eddie Lamb know Aria?

We thought Eddie Lamb recognizing Aria would turn into some reveal that Aria had spent time as a patient in Radley, but it was just a red herring after all.

10. Did Shana’s parents ever care that she died?

10. Did Shana’s parents ever care that she died?

We’re being a little facetious with this question, but seriously: How did Aria just get away with killing a teenage girl with no repercussions? Where is Shana’s family?!

11. How did Spencer ever get over Talex?

11. How did Spencer ever get over Talex?

Talex? Alby? Whatever we’re calling the totally messed up Alex and Toby hookups, how did Spencer ever get over this?

Buffy fans will see where we are going with this (remember when Faith in Buffy’s body slept with Riley?). How could the man that was allegedly insanely in love with Spencer for a large part of their lives, who has presumably had sex with her many times, really not know he wasn’t with Spencer, but with someone entirely different? Three times

If we were Spence, we’d have a really hard time moving on from this.

12. Why did Sara Harvey get involved with Charlotte in the first place?

12. Why did Sara Harvey get involved with Charlotte in the first place?

We can’t sleep at night wondering why Sara became Black Widow and Red Coat for Charlotte, and it looks like we may never know.

Alex revealed that Sara was looking for “Charlotte’s greatest treasure” under the Radley, which is why Sara was climbing around in those secret tunnels Rosewood is so famous for, but she never revealed Sara’s motives in the first place. 

Was it just the money all along? After the Dollhouse, she wanted money to fix her burned hands, but why did she need it beforehand?

13. How did Spencer know what book Toby was talking about?

13. How did Spencer know what book Toby was talking about?

When Toby with a gun can’t figure out which twin is which, he asks them to name Spencer’s favorite poem in the book she gave him. Spencer answers correctly.

But… we just learned that Alex gave Toby the book. Spencer would have no way of knowing what book Toby was even talking about. So how did she guess correctly?

Should we prepare our “Alex is living as Spencer and Spencer is trapped in Mona’s French Dollhouse” theories?

14. Did Alex kill Yvonne?

14. Did Alex kill Yvonne?

There has been fan speculation since before the Twincer reveal that Yvonne was poisoned, she didn’t die from the car accident — she had been getting better, after all.

Now that we know Alex wanted Toby all to herself, it seems to make sense that she killed Yvonne, but the show never really brings that idea to fruition, though it seems like a natural, logical step. 

After all, she’s definitely a killer. Just ask Wren the diamond.

15. Why were Mona and Caleb so close post-time jump?

15. Why were Mona and Caleb so close post-time jump?

You remember the infamous, theory-spawning scene: Mona and Caleb were staking out the Radley, and then they did something super weird.

They fixed each other's coffees. How did they know who takes what in their coffee? How did they get so close? Considering when we came back after the next time jump, Caleb loathes Mona, we'll never get a clear picture of this.
