Melissa Hastings has long been atop our list of “A” suspects, and we’re glad to see that we’re not the only ones! Pretty Little Liars star Brendan Robinson (Lucas) thinks Melissa might be the mastermind behind all of these gAmes.


“I think that Melissa is definitely a strong possibility,” he told Alloy Entertainment, adding that Mr. Hastings could also be part of her schemes and that Mrs. DiLaurentis was in on it too before her untimely death. Now, that’s interesting. Is it possible Melissa and her dad have been torturing Ali — and the Liars, including Spencer! — since the beginning? After all, Melissa has the motive to hate Ali, and she definitely has hinted at keeping secrets from Spencer. She clearly knows more than she’s willing to reveal. Not to mention, Wren has also been on our short list of “A” suspects, and knowing that Melissa and Wren are together, this would explain why he’s so shady.

Then again, Melissa loves her sister. And we don’t buy that she’d be willing to put her sister’s life in danger to make Ali’s life miserable. So perhaps there’s another possibility? Enter Brendan Robinson’s crAzy “A” theory.

“Holly Marie Combs and Chad Lowe, who play Ella and Byron,” he suggested. “They’re in on it together with Mike and Mona. Maybe they’ve told Aria, but she decided not to tell the rest of the girls and is just playing dumb.” Clearly, Brendan is a fan of the “Aria is ‘A’” theory.

What do you think, Pretty Little Liars fans? Is Melissa, and possibly Mr. Hastings, working together as “A”? Sound off in the comments!
