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 9: “The Kahn Game,” that may help us solve this thing for good!
3. Noel Kahn
Why he might be “A”: Turns out Noel (Brant Daugherty) was with Jenna (Tammin Sursok) on “that night” when they found Emily (Shay Mitchell) at a diner, although Jenna lied about finding her there. And we don’t get why Noel and Maya had become tight enough to earn Maya an open invite to the stamp parties — although we do remember that Noel bumped into Maya and gave her his number in Season 2, Episode 18: “A Kiss Before Lying.” Plus, the fact that Noel used to date Mona(Janel Parrish) automatically makes him a major “A”-team suspect, right?
Why he might not be “A”: Maybe Noel isn’t on the “A” team but is instead just an all-around asshole. Clearly, he and Jenna are sharing a lot of secrets, which causes us to raise our eyebrows, but as of right now, the only thing Noel is guilty of is trying to get Aria in trouble for seeing Ezra. And let’s just say that Noel shouldn’t bother trying to create problems for Ezria, since that couple has quite a few problems of their own these days, thank you very much.
2. Alison DiLaurentis
Why she might be “A”: When CeCe first met the Liars, she said that Ali told her that Hanna (Ashley Benson) is a fan of thievery, but Hanna didn’t start stealing things until after Ali’s disappearance. This leads us to believe that either CeCe never knew Ali, or that Ali has a twin whom CeCe has conspired with since Ali disappeared. Ali and CeCe are clearly two peas in a pod, so it only makes sense that the two of them are scheming together as we speak.
Why she might not be “A”: Frankly, we haven’t learned anything new about Ali or seen her in a flashback in quite some time, so Ali has slipped a bit as a suspect. We want to believe that Ali has a twin, but the show hasn’t provided a lot of solid hints about a twin in the past few episodes. We need more info, stat!
1. CeCe Drake
Why she might be “A”: Is it just us, or did CeCe invent a so-called friend named “Steven,” just to get Spencer to that party at Noel’s place? Also, Jenna glances in CeCe’s direction when Spencer grills her during “Truth” about “that night,” which makes us believe that CeCe may have been there on “that night.” And the fact that CeCe knew that Hanna is a klepto makes us wonder if CeCe knew this because she’s been spying on the girls. If you ask us, being “A” is way worse than getting a five-finger discount on occasion.
Why she might not be “A”: During the “Truth” game, it seemed that CeCe and Jenna knew each other, which is strange, since CeCe didn’t appear to know Jenna when she threatened her by phone two weeks ago (when claiming that Nate was her boyfriend). That threatening call made us think that CeCe was on the Liars’ side, but there is clearly a lot that we don’t know about CeCe. Translation: If you hook up with a Kahn, we automatically don’t trust you.
