Who Is “A”? Our Top 5 Suspects From Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Finale
So, you’re still dying to know who is the Big “A” on Pretty Little Liars. Don’t worry — we’ve got our crack team of sleuths on the case, analyzing every clue from the Season 4 finale for your mystery-solving pleasure.
Why he might be “A”: Might Toby be back to being an “A” candidate? After all, his current whereabouts are iffy. And why the heck would he fly all the way to London just to chat with Melissa? Has he never heard of Skype? Plus, we’re wondering if the end of “Shadow Play” — where Toby punches Ezra — might have foreshadowed this week’s finale, meaning Toby might be the one who shot Ez. Either way, Ezra’s really getting roughed up lately.
Why he might not be: Would the show actually make him “A,” after misleading us about him being “A” earlier in the series? That would be an awful lot of misdirection, even for this show. And we still love Spoby, so it would be tough to see Toby betraying her.
Why she might be “A”: Does Ali have a twin? We keep getting clues to suggest as much, particularly this week, from Ali’s mom’s phone conversation on the night Ali gets attacked. Mrs. D tells the person on the phone to send someone — which makes us wonder if Ali’s (or Jason’s?) twin has escaped from Radley. And Radley patients are quite adept at becoming “A,” as we’ve learned with Mona.
Why she might not be: Well, the fact that she might not even exist is a big reason. And would Ali’s twin be as athletic as “A” was in that rooftop scene?
Why she might be “A”: Paige has always had a dark side, and now that she and Emily appear to be dunzo, we could definitely see that side coming out again. Plus, Paige has always hated Ali — not to mention that Paige is probably athletic enough to jump from one rooftop to another.
Why she might not be “A”: We’re not sure, but we sorta get the sense that the rooftop assailant is a guy. And even though Paige can be moody, would she really be capable of becoming “A”?
Why he might be “A”: This finale brings up a ton of questions about Jason. We’ve always wondered if he could be “A,” given that he’s the lone surviving member of the N.A.T. Club, not to mention that wicked scar he had after the Halloween train party. Now, we’re wondering if he might have been the one to attack Ali with the rock, given that Mrs. D was willing to protect that person. Maybe he’s been sending creepy messages to Ali since the beginning?
Why he might not be: There are times when he genuinely seems concerned about Ali, so it’s hard to imagine him going to such lengths to torment her. Then again, maybe Jason has a twin?
Why he might be “A”: Welcome back to the top of the list, buddy! We haven’t seen him lately, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Wren left London with Melissa, following Toby’s visit. And we’re still wondering why his prescription pad showed up recently. Plus, the gun that “A” uses at the end of the finale appears to be Mr. Hastings’s gun, which Wren would have access to. And the club where Ali takes the Liars has a painting autographed by “A.” We all know Wren has an affinity for art — so maybe that’s his club?
Why he might not be: Well, if he’s indeed still in London, then he wasn’t the one who shot Ezra on the roof. And he’s been gone for so long that it’s hard to know if he still has a major role on the show at this point.
