So, you’re still dying to know who the new “A” is on Pretty Little Liars. 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 some hints from Season 3, Episode 8: “Stolen Kisses” that may help us solve this thing for good!
3. Wren Kingston
Why he might be “A”: What exactly was Wren (Julian Morris) up to this week? We can’t help but wonder if his eagerness to get Mona (Janel Parrish) to stay in Radley had something to do with him being a member of the “A” team. We also still wonder if he was the one who drugged Emily (Shay Mitchell), since he has access to prescription meds. Perhaps he’s trying to pin the blame on Mona and Lucas (Brendan Robinson). However, Hanna apparently does not find Wren to be sketchy in the least!
Why he might not be: Sure, Wren has been spending an awful lot of time with Hanna these days, but now that she’s single, can you blame the guy? And maybe his efforts to keep Mona in Radley really were just about what he thought was best for Mona and Hanna. Then again, no one in Rosewood seems to do what’s best for other people.
2. Paige McCullers
Why she might be “A”: Paige (Lindsey Shaw) has never seemed all that trustworthy, especially this week. Paige claims she saw Emily on “that night” — and kissed her! — but that she didn’t know Em was drugged and that they didn’t go anywhere near Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) grave. Seems dubious, no? And we still don’t know what Maya (Bianca Lawson) "knew," but we wouldn’t be shocked if she found out something very bad about Paige — and then paid the price for that knowledge.
Why she might not: Okay, so a lot of viewers don’t think Paige and Emily are a great fit, and we kinda agree — but that doesn’t make Paige “A,” right? Paige doesn’t seem diabolical enough to be “A,” not to mention that she doesn’t really know the other Liars or Ali. Still, given that Paige was becoming jealous of Maya, we’re nervous she played a role in Maya’s death. After all, Paige had already tried to drown Emily — and that’s not so different from crushing someone’s trachea...
1. Ali DiLaurentis
Why she might be “A”: We wonder if Jason's (Drew Van Acker) car accident and subsequent disappearance had something to do with Ali, especially since it seems possible that Jason may have just recently learned that Ali had a twin. We’re still convinced that Ali may have been the one visiting Mona and getting those pills to drug Em, since someone in Ali’s red coat visited Radley at the end of the Season 2 finale.
Why she might not: Frankly, there aren’t a lot of concrete reasons to think that Ali (or her twin) isn’t “A” — assuming that she does in fact have a twin on the show. A number of the key “A” suspects, like Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) and Noel (Brant Daugherty), have been off the show for quite some time, so Ali is our primary suspect of the moment. And we can’t help but think that Ali was the person who told Mona about Maya’s secret video website — since learning about people’s intimate moments is definitely Ali’s cup of tea.
