Suspect #1: Lucas Gottesman Why he might be “A”: Lucas Gottesman (Brendan Robinson) has always had a moody side lurking just below his “nice guy” exterior, and we saw it big-time this week. Between his questionable behavior — that strange website, his vague threats to Caleb — not to mention the new info about his hatred of Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) from the Halloween episode (Season 2, Episode 13:”The First Secret”), we’re getting mighty suspicious. We’re thinking he may have two hobbies: 1.) Collecting comic books, and 2.) Stalking everyone in sight.
Why he might not be “A”: Right now, his biggest mistake appears to be falling for a girl who has him locked securely in the Friend Zone (a.k.a. Hanna). If anything, we feel sorry for the guy. But does anyone else have a feeling that, instead of deleting those roadside pics of Hanna, he probably has them stored away in a secret file on his desktop? We think so, too!
Suspect #2: Garrett Reynolds Why he might be “A”: Because the guy is just a total creep! He was spying on the girls at the swim meet and during their garbage fight (which is way grosser than a food fight) meaning he could be “A” or was supplying “A” with info about their supposed feud. Also, his comments to Spencer (Troian Bellisario) reflect that he might know Dr. Sullivan’s whereabouts. And a note to Garrett: Given how angry Spence got at the end of the episode, you’d be well-advised not to tangle with her!
Why he might not be “A”: Frankly, the guy just doesn’t seem smart enough (no offense, buddy!). His methods of spying on the girls this week were hardly subtle, whereas “A” is as stealthy as they come. Then again, a guy who isn’t exactly Einstein would be exactly the type of person who would lose his cell phone — so maybe that was Garrett in the greenhouse? (Of course, we misplace our phones all the time, so who are we to judge?)
Suspect #3: Ezra Fitz Why he might be “A”: We shudder to think that Ezra Fitz (Ian Harding) could be “A” (or be working with A”), since he and Aria’s (Lucy Hale) relationship is about the cutest thing on the planet. But after this week, we’re starting to have our suspicions, between his drinking and the fact that he was once so tight with Jackie, who is basically a pitchfork away from being a She-Devil incarnate.
Why he might not be “A”: Because he’s Ezra freakin’ Fitz, for goodness sake! And he did some positive things this week, too, as he finally ‘fessed up to Aria’s parents. In fact, we’re pretty sure he was at Hollis while the girls were meeting with “A,” meaning he wouldn’t have had much time to put on a hoodie and swing rakes at people. That said, it’s still safe to assume that Byron Montgomery (Chad Lowe) won’t be inviting Ezra over for scotch again anytime soon.
