Aria is the one doing the „shh“ in the opening theme.
In one of the promotional pictures, Aria’s wearing a weird kind of accessory
In this one, the murder weapon is showing in her direction, and again she’s doing the “sh”
Lucy recently posted that picture. Black feet in a circle. One of those are hers. Is this a clue, that she’s on the “A”-Team?
In their latest photo shoot, the liars are sitting on a coffin and Lucy’s hands make a rather weird sign, which looks like an “A”.
They girls start getting messages from A, when Aria gets back from Iceland.
Look at the time on the radio. It’s 4.15 pm. Aria looks at her phone, acts a little suspicious and drives to a bar. When she gets there, it’s already 5.05 pm. Assuming that the bar is in Rosewood, she wouldn’t have to drive very far, would she? What did she do the whole hour between dropping Mike off to practice and sitting in that bar? “A”-business maybe?
This scene was shown twice. But why recreate a scene like that? Also Marlene King said, that A would be seen in the Pilot AND return in 3x01.
I noticed something weird about the “pig”-thing. Arias hand puppet is laying on the chair in the shed, BEFORE Ali got missing. After the girls wake up and notice she’s gone, so is the pig.
Later, Ella and Byron are talking about the puppet and Ella mentions, how often Aria carried it with her.
Through the episodes, the pig is shown a couple times. And I don’t think it’s a coincidence, that the cupcakes Hanna had to eat in S01 were decorated as pigs.
How many phones does she have?
It’s also thinkable, that Aria suffers from some kind of personality disorder. She often appears looking into a mirror and/or at her own reflection; Byron mentioned that his brother has some kind of mental disorder, which could have been passed on to Aria.
Some A messages were written with a typewriter. We know, that Ezra has one standing in his apartment, Aria has access to it.
The first message appears in 1x04, where Ella finds out about Byrons affair. Aria could have used the typewriter to send this message, cause she was too afraid to tell her mother about the affair herself.
This message was written with a typewriter as well
Also Marlene King changed her twitter icon to a typewriter on a red background.
3x18, Aria is in Ezras apartment and a few frames where shown, one of them was a typewriter. Why show that, if it wasn’t important?
Notice the poster in the background? “Playwright”, sounds familiar, doesn’t it? A few episodes later, A leads the girls to “Wrights Playground”.
Remember the lipstick scene? When Aria trashed her dads office, she used the same lipstick colour that was used on Spencers mirror. Also, the handwriting matches Arias.
1x05, when talking about the confession letter, A sent to her mum:
Emily: “It’s your fathers fault”
Aria: “No it’s mine”
1x05, why does Aria keep waiting at the lockers, while the other ones are walking to class?
Aria is sad because of Ezra, she lays in bed as the girls walk in.
Hanna: “But you cannot have any of those until you get out of these sweats.”
Aria: “Why, what’s wrong with these?”
Spencer: “Nothing, except they’re starting to graft to you skin.”
Aria: “Well they’re comfy.”
And now look what she’s wearing: Black pants & Hoodie. Could be a clue.
1x06, the fortune teller says “There’s something wrong with this couple.” This could refer to Toby & Emily, but since the camera showed Aria & Ezra, it could also refer to them.
Aria was the one throwing Tobys file in the river, so she could have gotten it back easily.
1x09, the girls are at Spencers, helping her learn some vocabulary. These words could refer to Arias character.
Could be nothing, but when Aria and Ezra are arguing in class, the board is full with words beginning with an “A”.
PLL is all about dolls and somehow, Aria is always seen with dolls or sort of connected to them.
The Russian doll can be stapled into one another. This could also hint to the theory of Aria having multiple personalities.
1x10, Aria is sneaking into Ezras car. We all know she’s at “Camp Mona”, where everybody’s wearing hoodies. But it also be a clue, that she is A.
1x11, when visiting Hanna at the hospital, the girls were talking about A having a split personality and right after that, the camera swings to Aria.
In the same episode, A left a message on Hannas leg. This could have easily been Aria.
Spencer and Aria are talking at Hannas Welcome Home Party. Their conversation could refer to the 4 girls themselves and Aria trying to destroy them one by one.
Noel threatened Aria and Ezra to expose them, A planted evidence on Noel for stealing exams answers and saved Aria’s relationship. Aria could have done that herself.
Aria might indirectly confess, that she was involved in Hannas car accident.
Does she mean herself?
Don’t worry dear, you’re allowed to.
Black Swan anyone? Marlene King tweeted, that Arias dress has a very important meaning.
But Arias dress could not only refer to the Black Swan, but to the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland as well. Also take a look at the leather gloves. “A” much?
This could also be a hint, that she has something to do with it.
She’s wearing a heart-shaped necklace.
Arias outfit at the ball not only looks like the poster from the Black Swan but it also resembles the Cluedo character Miss Scarlet. Miss Scarlett is known to be a brunette with whom all the gentlemen are quite smitten, which can relate to Aria quite well eg. Ezra, Jason, Noel etc. Miss Scarlett is also known to keep secrets from her friends and will backstab them at anytime, could this relate to Aria?
2x01, Aria nods to someone in the distant, glances at her phone and BOOM! The four girls get a text from A.
Aria asks what the name of Melissas & Ians baby is and as Spencers says “Taylor”, she gets a text, supposedly from Ian. But Aria could have been the one getting the name to another A Team member, maybe by turning on her phone with A on the other line, listening to the conversation. Afterwards, he/she could have replied to Spencer.
Says it all.
2x03, Ezra and Aria are talking about Jenna and Aria is reacting very weird to Ezras questions. Could this mean, that Aria and Jenna are somehow working together?
2x03, Emily writes a fake Danby letter and tells Aria & Hanna. Later, she makes up her mind and destroys it. But somehow, her mum actually got the fake letter. “A” rewrote it, so Emily could stay in Rosewood. Aria knew about the letter, so she could have told another A Team member to fake another one and send it to Emilys mother.
2x04, Jason calls Aria “unexpected” and so does Wesley in 3x18. Right after Wesley said that, Aria looks really guilty and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that you can see the typewriter in the background.
It’s very suspicious how the camera turned directly to Aria, after Hanna said this:
The girls were just looking at Ians suicide note a couple minutes ago, so it could have been Aria, who sent Emily that text.
Is Aria wearing an “A” necklace actually a clue?
In 2x06, after the fashion show, Noel wants to give Aria the CD with the pictures of Ali they showed. Why would he assume it was hers? Spencer was the one giving it to him.
And notice how Aria slighty nods directly at Noel with a hint of a smile? Like she was giving him a sign.
Aria shows Emily a page from a magazine, a few episodes later after the fashion show, we can see “A” at a laptop ordering some shoes. On the desk you can see the exact same page.
Whenever the girls are talking about “A”, the camera swings to Aria, who’s always looking kinda guilty and suspicious, for example in 2x07.
These pictures of Aria were found in Jasons darkroom. He said, Ali took those pictures. And we all knew Alison tried to spy on “A”. Could this mean, she figured out, Aria was “A”?
Notice the poster behind Emily? The “A” between two instruments? We know that Aria plays keyboard.
2x11, Emily meets the rest of the girls at Dr. Sullivans office to talk about “A”. Dr. Sullivan asks a question and the camera immediately focus’ on Aria.
Aria and Spencer are waiting for Emily at Hannas Dads wedding. We can see Aria writing a text, but we don’t know who she’s sending it to. A few seconds later, Hanna gets a text from “A”.
After forcing her to tell Isabel about her dad hooking up with her mum, Hanna immediately gets another “A”-message. How could Mona or Toby (currently known of “A”-Team members) be that punctual at pushing “send”? Aria on the other hand could have done that easily.
I noticed that Aria has a lot of butterflies in her room. So I thought to look up some meanings of butterflies and here’s what I found:
- As butterflies can often be found hovering about milk pails or butter churns, they have become associated with witches trying to steal the cream
- The people […] see these butterflies as the returning souls of the deceased
- The butterfly stands for […] everlasting knowledge
- First of all the butterfly symbolizes new life from and old one. Seeing thatthe colour black is a strong yet subtle colour, the black butterfly symbolizes the new strong but subtle life after a period of transformation
- There is a Native American legend that says: “If you have a secret wish, capture a butterfly and whisper your wish to it. Since butterflies cannot speak, your secret is ever safe in their keeping”
Why do Ali & Aria wear the same shirt?
I don’t think that it’s a coincidence, that Aria wore a witch costume at Halloween. It’s also completely in black, could this be a hint that she’s on the “A”-Team?
Who’s in the background, when Alison says that? Right, Aria.
Green peppers? Coincidence? I think not.
2x18, Aria said to Spencer:
2x19, Aria wants to make a phone call as “Vivian”. Does the conversation with Emily below hint at her multiple personality disorder? Does she have an alter ego pretending to be “Vivian”?
Ezra wants to take Aria out for dinner at “Chez Mirabelle”. They were talking on the phone while setting the date and later Byrons gets a text from “A” (written with a typewriter) telling him, where Aria is going to be that night. Unless “A” has little spying bugs and recording devices EVERYWHERE, Aria could have written that message herself, since she decides to meet with Holden anyway.
Aria texted Ezra, that she can’t make it tonight. But why does it say “Unknown Caller”? Doesn’t Ezra have his own girlfriends phone number? Or did she write from another phone, possibly her “A”-Phone? Also, take a look at Ezras phone background. A Typewriter! Coincidence?
2x21, Aria finally confesses, that she’s still seeing Ezra. Spencer’s shocked because of Arias great acting at being heartbroken. Guess, pretending to be someone else comes with having multiple personalities, right Aria?
2x22, Aria is pointed out to be the best liar of them all.
2x22, Aria confesses to Hannas mum, that she’s “A”. It’s supposed to be a lie, a made up story, but what if this actually was a hint?
Aria was the last person (we know of) to have Vivians (Alisons) red coat. At the end of season 2, a person in a red coat visits Mona at Radley. It could have been Aria.
2x23, Duncan tells Aria about Alison being afraid of something. When she asks, who she was afraid of, he gives her a very strong look. Next second, Aria loses control of the plane.
2x24, Aria and Ella have an argument, because Aria found out, that her parents thought of sending her to boarding school. She threatens her to tell the dean about Byron having an affair with one of his students. Stuff, that “A” would do, right?
What about the weird Toffee Tango thing?
Aria is talking to someone at the masquerade ball, we can’t see. She’s also holding her phone the whole time and looks around. Kinda suspicious.
The writers said, that “A” would be unmasked in 2x25.
Notice, how quickly she said, she’d know a short cut to Look Out Point after finding out, that Mona’s “A” and she has taken Spencer?
Look at Arias doll. She’s dressed in very dark clothes, kinda sporty, very different than usually.
Remember Aria having a panic attack in the schools girls room? And the scene where she, Spencer and Emily are standing in front of Garretts House? Both time, she thought she saw “A”. Maybe her personality disorder becomes overwhelming sometimes.
Second after showing these words written on the board, the camera is turning to Aria.
The song Aria is playing with Jenna is the same one Mona’s singing in her bed at Radleys while holding the “Queen of Hearts” card.
Why would Jenna ask a question like that? And why didn’t Aria tell her “No, I don’t have anything to do with it.” She just remains silent.
Who likes to drink Alcohol with a straw? Right, Aria.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that there were playing cards everywhere at the Brew, when Jenna was having her birthday party. See the ace card in the background? Could this mean, that Aria is head “A”? I also think it’s weird that she’s wearing a heart patterned dress.
What is this supposed to mean? These cards that have been floating around lately have to mean something! And Aria is always seen with them.
When Hanna and Aria went to Radley to visit Mona at night, Mona kept saying “Miss Aria, you’re a killer, not Ezras wife.” Turns out, it was a code: MAYA KNEW.
Back at Arias place, the 4 girls meet and try to remember everything Mona said. I think it’s really weird that Aria is the one saying: “Oh my god, what’s that other poem? Something about Garrett and Maya.” And that’s all. She didn’t mention the “MAYA KNEW”-Sentence. Why would she hide something like that, if it wouldn’t be important or somehow true?
I took a closer looks at the books in Arias room and they seem to have plots about death, mysteries and insanity. It that a clue?
3x11, Aria tries to find Maggie and introduces herself to her as “Amy”. A ME, A=ME.
Aria had to lie to Emily to get her to Spencers house.
On the Halloweentrain:
I also did some research about her costume, Daisy Buchanan.
Daisy is The Great Gatsby’s most enigmatic, and perhaps most disappointing, character. Although Fitzgerald does much to make her a character worthy of Gatsby’s unlimited devotion, in the end she reveals herself for what she really is. Despite herbeauty and charm, Daisy is merely a selfish, shallow, and in fact, hurtful, woman. Gatsby loves her (or at least the idea of her) with such vitality and determination that readers would like, in many senses, to see her be worthy of his devotion. Although Fitzgerald carefully builds Daisy’s character with associations of light, purity, and innocence, when all is said and done, she is the opposite from what she presents herself to be.
Adam Lambert wants to know her name, but the train is too loud, so Aria has to write it on the windows. Why would the writers create a scene like that, if it wouldn’t have a significant meaning? And the last “A” looks just like “A”’s signature,
So now you’d say: Aria can’t be “A”, she was locked up in a box and almost got killed in 3x13. But Spencer herself said that drugging yourself is the best alibi ever. The “A”-Team could have planned this all along to make Aria look like the victim.
3x14, there’s just something really weird about this Mona/Aria scene. Aria looks like a boss whose minion got out of control. Maybe something went wrong on the Halloween train.
Mona posted a video online, saying how sorry she was. Unfortunately, we couldn’t see all of it. But the Mona twitter posted a link to watch the full video.
“Why are you looking at me like that? Doing this was your idea remember. Look, if you’re starting to have second thoughts, back out now. Either we’re in this together or we’re not. So, what’s it gonna be, friend?”
Nothing to directly peg Aria, but the Mona twitter featured: “Worried Aria Never Talks” and “Dear Ezra Not Only Fathers Live In Extra Secrecy”.
Look at the blackboard.
So we all know that the producers put in clues about the show in the background. The students are studying the 1949 classic Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Its about a society being dictated by one person called “Big Brother”. They have to follow his rules or else they suffer.
This sounds very similar to the “A” Team. Ultimately there is a head “A” who rules everyone else and dictates the girls life. Like the book, if they girls don’t do what “A” says, they suffer. This could be a major clue to Aria being the head “A”. Remember when Mona calls Aria, Big “A”? Notice the resemblance?
Big “A” & Big Brother.
Nice lamp Aria. Do you share living room decorating ideas with Toby? Cause he has a photo of that lamp in his drawer.
That’s a quote from Games of Thrones, “A Song of ice and fire” by Arya Stark. Arya = Aria.
Notice how Ali looks down on Aria, like she’s talking about her?
“So do you. I’m surprised Spencer hasn’t figured that out.”
Weird “A” on the teapot.
Picked her for what?!
3x16, The song, Mona was listening to at the end is called “Aria with 30 variations”. Another hind at the multiple personalities theory?
Why aren’t you? What’s there to be prepared for? Just tell them already, unless you don’t wanna reveal, that you’re “A”.
Spencer gets a text from Aria, saying that Ezra broke up with her. Later on, it turns out, “A” was the one who sent the text from Arias phone. But how could “A” do that? Aria had her phone with her all time, didn’t she? I think, the text did in fact came from her, she just made that “A” thing up on purpose.
Okay, two things:
Arias doll is wearing a red shirt. (Red is the new Black) and notice how she’s standing a little bit lower than the other liars? Like she’s in a different position. Maybe this is a hint towards her being on the “A”-Team.
3x18, Hanna suggest that she and Aria should get rid of the things they put in Alisons casket. But Aria refuses to give her the earrings. Why would she wanna hold on to them? For what purpose?
Aria has been cheating twice on Ezra (once with Jason & once with Wesley) til now and yet she has never been busted by “A”? Isn’t cheating something, “A” attracts magically? Either the “A”-Team wants to spare Aria or she is “A” herself.
3x19, Spencer tells Jason that Ali was pregnant. Afterwards Aria, Hanna and Emily are talking in the graveyard and Aria says: “Something is really wrong with Spencer. I mean, this is bigger than Toby leaving. I’m heartbroken too, but she just seems…”. Emily continues: “Broken.”
How would Aria know about the break-up? Emily wasn’t supposed to tell anyone and Spencer surely didn’t spill her guts. So how did Aria find out?
3x19, Emily remembers something about the night she was taken to Alisons grave. The person digging up the grave has brown hair. You can see some of it under the Hoodie. It could be Melissa or Mona. My money’s on Aria.
It may be nothing, but I think it’s weird, that there’s an “A” to be seen on the camera when Aria is taking pictures.
Maybe the “A”-Team or even Aria herself did turn the bottle around, so she’s saved.
Wow Aria, that’s a really accurate description of what actually happened. I wonder how you’d know that?
3x20, Spencer gets locked up in her shower, gets a text from “A” via mirror and who shows up to save her? Aria! What a coincidence!
3x20, Spencer finally wants to tell the truth about “A”, but look how scared Aria looks. Afraid and suspicious. Like she’s thinking “She can’t know it’s me, it’s impossible, she can’t know I’m A.”
Even Maggie and her 7-year-old son could figure that out.
Is Toby really dead? While Emily thinks, “A” killed him because he was gonna help the liars, Aria comes up immediately with a much better conclusion. Damn girl, you’re so smart.
Why would Aria send Emily & Hanna a text saying that Spencer was not at the bookstore, while she was in fact sitting on Ezras couch instead of looking for Spencer? Yeah that’s right, cause she’s sketchy as hell!
I just thought it was really weird how Aria said that to Emily. Like she was clearing something up, giving her answers or something.
Why did she texted Hanna, if the girls cleary agreed to text Emily, if Aria sees anyone?
Aria didn’t see “Red Coat” herself, she saw her in a mirror. This could also be a hint at her MPD.
Maybe I am reading to much into this, but still…
My main point is, that the whole “A”-Team can’t know everything about the liars, unless they had cameras, microphones and recording devices EVERYWHERE. There HAS to be someone on the inside and Aria is the most suspicious one of them all.
Besides, “A” didn’t frame Aria for ANYTHING in season 3b, even if “A” had so many opportunities to. The only targets were Emily, Hanna and mostly Spencer. So why spare Aria?
