The promo photos for the Pretty Little Liars summer finale see Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) sneaking into some kind of hospital. What gives? Why are the Liars sneaking into a hospital? We speculate below…


It’s Radley and they’re trying to get Bethany’s records. Those green walls with yellow baseboards certainly look like the mental institution we know and love! Not to mention that the get-ups Mona and Spence are sporting to sneak into the pictured institution look a lot like the uniform Mona used when she snuck in and out of Radley as a patient. We think Mona’s past experience sneaking into Radley may be the very reason the Liars have teamed up with the former “A”. If it is Radley, what are the Liars hoping to find? One possible answer is more information about the mysterious Bethany Young. She was a patient there, so presumably there will be records explaining who she is, where she came from, and why she was at Radley. If we were the Liars, we’d certainly be asking ourselves those questions.

It’s Radley and they’re trying to find out what happened to Toby’s mom. Another possible reason for a Radley break-in relates to Toby’s mother, Marion Cavanaugh, who died by falling/jumping/getting pushed/whatever from the roof of Radley. This mystery has fallen out of the central plot in recent episodes, but we think it’s connected to Bethany Young and the “A” game, and could easily be brought back up especially with Toby’s newly adopted position as a member of the Rosewood P.D. We know that Wilden fudged the police report concerning Mrs. Cavanaugh’s death. Does Toby find something in the police station that prompts further investigation at Radley in the summer finale?

It’s the Rosewood hospital and they’re looking for Bethany Young’s corpse. Grisly, we know, but if we were the Liars we’d be asking questions about how Bethany died, how she was identified, etc. After all, the authorities already misidentified her once as Alison. Is there a reason for this a twinny one, perhaps? Is her body even still in the hospital? If so, we’d imagine it’s decomposed beyond recognition. If not, is there still information that could help the Liars fill in some of their blanks?

Why do you think the Liars are sneaking into the hospital? Share your theories in the comments below!
