Finding out that Toby (Keegan Allen) is on the “A” team was the most shocking thing we’ve ever seen on Pretty Little Liars. Especially when we try to figure out who else knows about Toby’s secret. Since Jenna (Tammin Sursok) remains a mystery, her true intentions clouded by all of her suspicious behavior and claims, we have to wonder: Does Jenna already know Toby is working for “A”?
Here are several reasons why she might know Toby is on the “A” team.
Jenna might be on the “A” team. Perhaps this is stating the obvious, but it’s still a strong theory. Jenna has a very good reason to hate the Little Liars (and Alison DiLaurentis [Sasha Pieterse], whether she’s alive or not), ever since their prank on Toby left her blind. If Toby has been on the “A” team for a long time, then he, Jenna, Mona (Janel Parrish), and whoever else is on the team could have been working together from the start.
Jenna is firmly anti-Liars. We would imagine that one of the requirements for “A” team membership is a deep hatred for the Liars. They’re the victims of of “A”’s attacks. Heck, the “A” team might have even murdered Alison. As mentioned above, Jenna has every right to hate the Liars. And Toby may have started to hate them when they blinded his step-sister. Jenna showed that her anti-Liars stance is very much alive in Season 3, Episode 9: “The Kahn Game”, when she showed severe distrust and disdain for Spencer (Troian Bellisario) during a game of Truth or Dare.
Toby might have done “A”-related things when he thought Jenna was still blind. With just the two of them holed up in the same house for so long (with parents who never seemed to be in town), it makes sense that Toby could have been doing work for the “A” team at home. Thinking that Jenna couldn’t see him, it’s possible he sent “A” texts, or made creepy photo collages, or tried on baby monster masks in plain sight. Jenna could have caught him without him ever knowing he’d been caught.
Jenna might be “the target” of an “A” team plot. In Season 3, Episode 3: “Kingdom of the Blind”, the Liars discover that Jenna has been lying about her eyesight. When they confront her, she appeared to be terrified of someone. She says being blind was “the only protection I had,” and that she might still be a target. What if she was referring to Toby? Toby might be the one using Jenna, threatening her to keep quiet about his secret. If he were to find out she could see, he might try to hurt her for the things she’d seen.
Toby and Jenna are close. Let’s not forget that Jenna supposedly sexually molested Toby a long time ago, forcing him into a relationship. Whether Toby gave his consent or not, the two of them may have remained close ever since. Shouldn’t that level of intimacy guarantee knowledge of each other’s sinister activities?
Tell us in the comments if you think Jenna knows about Toby, and share your theories!
