We know that you’re dying to know who “A” might be! Don’t worry — we’ve got our crack team of sleuths on the case, picking up even the tiniest clue for your mystery-solving pleasure. Here are the hints from last week’s episode that may help us get even closer to solving this thing for good!
Suspect #1: Officer Wilden
Why he might be “A”: The guy can’t seem to get enough of our four girls! Sadly for Wilden, former fling Ashley Marin has apparently moved on to Byron, although if we were Wilden, we wouldn’t feel too threatened: Wilden offered to get Ashley’s daughter out of legal trouble, while all Byron has to offer is that he can bring over his own jam. (In other words, Byron isn’t exactly Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.)
Why he might not be “A”: How could he really be “A,” since he seems to get dumber by the minute! And considering that cops in most movies have to hand in their badges for the slightest wrongdoing, we’re shocked that Wilden hasn’t yet resorted to making his own “police badge” out of construction paper and magic markers.
Suspect #2: Lucas Gottesman
Why he might be “A”: Last week, just when it seemed that Lucas really cared about Hanna, we got the biggest clue yet as to the possible identity of “A.” Is Lucas really “A”? We’re not completely convinced, but we do know that the only thing more incriminating than those muddy shoes would be carrying a sledgehammer and a how-to book entitled Memorial Vandalism for Dummies.
Why he might not be “A”: Does Lucas seem like a criminal mastermind to anyone? We’re guessing that — if anything — he may have taken his anger toward Ali out on the memorial, but that he isn’t the sole person behind the threats and texts. If you ask us, saying that Lucas is “A” is sorta like giving C3PO sole credit for blowing up the Death Star. (And C3PO, as we all know, is far too modest to accept all the credit anyway.)
Suspect #3: Noel Kahn
Why he might be “A”: He definitely has a motive for exposing secrets about Aria and Ezra, which would help to get Ezra out of the picture for good. In fact, if Ezra really wants to compete with guitar-strumming Noel for Aria’s heart, he himself might want to pick up a musical instrument, too. But time is running out, so Ezra might want to forgo learning a complex instrument like, say, the harp, and instead just master something like the triangle.
Why he might not be “A”: Noel seems to spend too much time at concerts and sporting events to fulfill his duties as a master conspirator. The only person who spends more time watching basketball games than Noel is Jack Nicholson!
