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 5: “That Girl is Poison,” that may help us solve this thing for good!
3. Wren Kingston
Last episode’s ranking: 2
Why he might be “A”: Our vodka-swilling, Radley-visiting friend wasn’t in the episode, but there were still clues that make us question him. We couldn’t help but realize that he would be the character who’d be most able to acquire those sleeping pills, not to mention whatever pills had Maya’s name on them. And he would also probably know how to put Garrett’s mom in a coma. Sure, he hasn’t had much contact with Garrett thus far, but who knows what secret relationships we don’t know about!
Why he might not be “A”: We would find it hard to believe that Wren would have drugged Emily. However, we remember that he was her doctor in Season 2 and may have been the one who secretly gave her the steroid cream back then. If this is the case, Wren may actually be a crazier doctor than Dr. Frankenstein.
2. Jenna Marshall
Last episode’s ranking: Didn’t rank
Why she might be “A”: The last time we saw Jenna, she seemed ready to team up with the Liars, but not this week! It was suspicious that she suddenly told the whole school she could see, or that she invited so many people to her party, or that she saw Emily “that night” and might have drugged her. And let’s not forget the playing cards on the wall of the party, suggesting a connection between Jenna and Mona. Speaking of cards, we kinda want to “deck” Jenna sometimes.
Why she might not be “A”: Jenna and Garrett used to be inseparable, so we wonder if she really would have put his mom in a coma, as Garrett seems to really love his mom. And it seems unlikely that Jenna would be the person who was supposed to receive that “April Rose” note, since she was busy throwing her party that night. Wearing hideous hats can be time-consuming.
1. Lucas Gottesman
Last episode’s ranking: 4
Why he might be “A”: Remember when Lucas was sweet and mild-mannered? Those days are loooong gone, with Lucas ready to throw down with Aria to get his stuff back from the photo studio. The fact that the sleeping pills were with his stuff is mighty incriminating, not to mention that it seems suspicious as to what photos he might have been developing at the studio on his own. Lucas appears to have been a worse assistant than Anne Hathaway in Devil Wears Prada.
Why he might not be “A”: Every time we think Lucas is seriously up to something (see: the rowboat scene and his gambling on basketball last season), it turns out to be a lot less messed-up than we had feared. Maybe he somehow had those pills to subdue Mona and not to drug Emily? Or maybe this is just wishful thinking on our part.
