Who Is “A”? Clues from Pretty Little Liars Season 1, Episode 11
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 “Moments Later” that may help us solve this thing for good!
Suspect #1: Ian Thomas Why he might be “A”: This guy was already creepy. Then he went and married Melissa out-of-the-blue, meaning he’ll be hanging around the Hastings household a lot. You don’t have to be as perceptive as the guy on The Mentalist to know that Ian isn’t to be trusted.
Why he might not be “A”: Okay, so it’s hard to hate any guy who looks that good with his shirt off. If Twilight taught us anything — and clearly it did — it’s that shirtless guys just want to protect us (and that vampires are really nice, once you get to know them).
Suspect #2: Noel Kahn Why he might be “A”: Let’s face it — the fact that he was spotted by Hanna while spying on Aria and Ezra was pretty incriminating. And we know that people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty and all that nonsense, but what’s the fun in that?
Why he might not be “A”: Don’t you remember earlier in the season, when the guy sensitively played the acoustic guitar? We doubt that an acoustic guitar player could be really be “A,” even if they can be a little annoying (and yes, John Mayer, we’re referring to you).
Suspect #3: Mona Vanderwall Why she might be “A”: Spoiler alert! In the books, Mona was "A," but we've heard it from multiple sources that the show is not going to play out exactly as the books did. Plus, it seems like too much of a coincidence that the "A" car accident happened right where Mona’s glamping party was going on. Come to think of it, there hasn’t been a camping party that was this hazardous since the Friday the 13th movies.
Why she might not be “A”: Mona might be a little irritating, but it’s hard to imagine her as “A.” (Translation: Mona might not be smart enough to be “A”!) We assume that she’s too busy giving makeovers to Hanna to worry about boring stuff like stalking.
