I think this ia huge. Remember my CRAZY THEORY? Well this is the improved one. It is a ling post bur please read it through!
- Jessica and Marion are twins/sisters and they hated each other a lot. Marion starts developing psicose along with depression and keeps going back in and out of Radley until the time she goes in permanently.
- Jessica never wanted anyone to find out about her crazy sister because she herself struggled with some slight mental issue.
- One day, Cece and Ali decide to make a prank. Cece goes into Radley pretending to be Ali. When she says she is a DiLaurentis, someone talks about Marion.
- Cece connects the dots and tells it all to Ali after Jessica confronts her daughter and calls that friendship “toxic”.
- Jessica over-heard that conversation and found out her daugther knew so she goes to Radley to confront Marion.
- They fight and the argument gets heated. Unintentionally, Jessica pushes Marion over the window and is convinced to have killed her sister.
- Jessica bribes people into changing the report (wilden? )
- A young girl sees it all. She was Marions daughter? I think she is also connected to Wren.
- Bethany talks to Wren about it and he gets furious. (I think Wren and Marion could have had an affair in Radley).
- They discover that Jessica only did that because Ali found out so they blame Alison for Marion’a death.
- At the same time, Mona and Lucas team up to threaten Alison. Bethany and Wren join them.
- B and W have a secret plan: to kill Ali so Jessica can have a taste of her own venom.
- Then the fatidic day happens. They try to kill her. And they think they did it but the old lady from Ravenswood saves her.
- So now they want to lure Ali back into Rosewood to torture her and then kill her.
- Somewhere along the plot, someone in a mask comes to help them and becomes the leader. At that time, Toby joins the A team too.
- The A team keeps growing and Mona realizes she isnt in charge anymore and gets freaked out so A tries to kill her too.
- Rewind to the day Ali went missing. She had come from her grandma’s and I think she went there to ask her about Marion. That’s why that was the day she was “killed”
- Back to today. Everything kind of makes sense! Every dead person was a lose end from their master plan.
- So now the masked person is the boss. That person is Marion who didn’t die but still wants revenge!
- This explains why Jessica bought things for Bethany, her hatred for Miss D and Alison, the different kinds of A messages and threats, why Jessica protected her daughterra killer, why she was helping cece…
- Lastly this is how I think Bethany ended up in Ali’s grave: Bethany escaped from Radley one night and ends up meeting Jessica who, at this point, is just tired of years of persuading Bethany into forgiving her and Bethany ends up dead. Jessica already knows her daughter has escaped, cece told her, so she puts Bethany in Ali’s grave. It is now safe for Ali to come back.
- only now A is more thirsty for revenge than ever. Marion wants to avenge her daughter. First step: kill Jessica. Second: destroy Ali.
I know this was long and messy but I think this is really it!!!!!!! Hope you like it and found it plausible and understandable!
Like I am soooo happy that my Marion-Jessica twin/sisters theory has taken off and people are liking it and there are tons of new pov on that! Like, I am not big here and I had never done an actual theory ao that’s pretty cool
You see, something interesting about -A is that whoever it is, it runs the town.
I mean to say that the minute Aria is back, it sends the first text. Then it sends all of the other texts just to mess with them. Finally, “Ali’s” body appears. This is not a coincidence, this is to say that from the first minute, -A has been bigger than the girls or Rosewood High. -A made the body appear exactly when it wanted.
-A controls the police of that town.
-A has loads of minions doing its job.
-A even has its own B team aka Mona-s Army.
-A is a freaking genius who somehow managed to control a whole freaking town just to harass teenage girls. Now, you see why -A can’t be a teenager?
And first episode -A wasn’t Mona either, I just don’t buy it! First episode -A was already uber -A, that was already ruling the town, while Mona thought she was so cool by sending the texts.
Anonymous said: Hey, I absolutely LOVE your Marion/Mrs. D theory, but the one thing bothering me about the possibility of Marion being the Black Widow is that the actress/model they used for the Black Widow at Wilden's funeral seemes super young, tall, and thin. If it was Marion, wouldn't they use the actress who plays her or to throw us off a bit, at least someone with a similar body type or who is around her age?? Just a thought. Keep up the great work though, your blog is fantastic!!! xx <3
OMG I am so sorry, I am not used to getting like people sending me their questions and stuff so I didn’t even see this until now oh my sorry!!! Really, though!
First of all, thank you for liking my theory, I never thought it would be successful or like, likable, so to have people like it and talking to me about it really is great!! Oh, and thanks for liking my blog as well because I often have no clue of how to be a tumblr user!!!
I have thought of that various times. I have tried to think of solutions but I can only think that either the show producers used just someone random not caring what she looked like which seems unlikely, or maybe black veil was just there as a spy and there is yet someone bigger than her, which I don’t think is accurate either. I really do’t know, maybe Marion looks really good and has been working out? Maybe it is not Marion, perhaps it could be someone else working for her?
I have thought of that myself and these are my conclusions but they don’t seem likely so I have been trying to think of a theory that wouldn’t have that flaw in it but so far I only have bits and pieces!
Once again, I am SORRYYYY and very, very pleased that you like my blog!!!!
I have been thinking about these for a while:
- Who is Sara Harvey? Why was she thrown at us just like that? How come her background is so similar to Ali’s? Was Sara at all like Ali or did -A buy off those girls to scare the liars? Where is she? Is she dead? Is she really somewhere with amnesia?
- Was Jessica buying stuff to Bethany out of love, or out of fear? Were they connected in some way? Was Bethany her niece? What did Bethany have on Jessica? Why did the girl hate Miss D. so much if she was buying her all of that stuff? Why did Jessica care? Who is Bethany and what does Rhonda know? Why was she in Radley, how did she escaped and where does Eddie Lamb fit in all of this?
- Where the hell is Eddie Lamb? Why did he decided to evaporate after he talked to Aria? Why did he want to meet with Ezra? Why did he stood Ezra up? Why is he always in the center of every Radley-action? Is he good or bad? Where did he know Aria from? What’s the deal with him and Wren?
- Where is Wren? Why did he leave so abruptly to “London”, if that’s where he is? What connection did he have with Shauna? Is he lead -A and was giving Shauna orders? If not, does he know about -A, redcoat, black veil, etc? How come he has been M.I.A since season 4?
- Who is Melissa? Is she good, bad, troubled, something else? What’s her point in the show? What exactly does she know? What are her secrets? Why does he hate Ali as much as Mona, apparently? Why does she keep lying? Why did she say to Spencer somewhere in season 3, something like: “you don’t understand but this is all to protect you!”?
- Is Zach just a complete douche or does he have an agenda? Why was he so flawless until now? Is he trying to get some kind of revenge against Ella and Aria (saw this in a theory, I don’t recall which! sorry!!)? Why did he hit on Hannah if he knew how close Aria is to her? Did he do it on purpose? Did he want to get caught or did he want to stir something between them? Is he just flat out brainless?
- What the hell Alison?! Why are you like that? Why are yous till playing games? Why don’t you just tell the things you know to the girls? Did the girls do some sort of pact to not ask her anything like “hey, y’know anything about a girl named Sara Harvey?” or “where were you, what have you been doing, who has been helping you, is that story truth, what did you do to Mona, and why is someone wasting his life ruining yours?”
- Girls, why are you all so weird? Why haven’t you asked one single important question to your not-so-dead bff?
- What’s the deal with Travis? Where’s *hottie* Holbrook? Why is detective Tanner so keen on knowing the truth? Has someone told her Ali is a big, fat, liar? Does she know more than she lets on?
- What’s the deal with Marion C.? Was my theory right? What’s her connection?
I’ve always heard that asking the right questions solves half the problem so maybe this will help you guys wrapping your heads around some big clue, or maybe not, idk, but these have been bugging me so much!!!
Each episode has me doubting Toby more and more.. Like, not the way we all suspected Ezra. There is no creepy music, no creepy glares and stares. He doesn’t seem too suspicious but he does.
"Getting the privileged information"
He said something like that and you know how we couldn’t see his face afterwards because he was with his back to the camera? How convenient that we couldn’t see his reaction to that slip up…
He was telling that the Radley thing would be over soon, because he would get inside information. Then we see his *handsome* back and he switches the subject to how little food there is around the house. Finally, Spence being Spence questions him about what he just said and he casually says “oh no biggie, I’m just gonna be a cop and stuff. You know, for safety’s sake.”
The privileged info meant -A intel. He is getting -A clues and he knows a lot more about Radley than we think. Maybe this all fits into my theory Marion-Jessica and he is Marion’s little helper, I don’t even know, all I know is that that was the big thing on the episode I am pretty sure about that.
Maybe it doesn’t mean he is bad, maybe it means he is gathering info to protect and stuff but that whole scene sounded so weird, like he was convincing us of what he was saying…
If you have any thoughts regarding this do tell me or something!
The latest episode was just so WOW… I mean, I bet there is a lot that episode told us that we just haven’t figured out yet.
E. Lamb has to have been majorly important even though he probably said just 3 lines. The important thing is what he didn’t say:
- Why did he stole THAT pictures and not every other one where Miss D is painted as a liar, with demons and all?
- Why did he call a meeting with Ezra right after he saw Aria?
- What does he know?!
Yeah, these were just a few questions I came up with in the moment but maybe there’s more. Usually the scenes that matter the most are those that last the least (see what I did there), so I think the part when Ezra tells Aria “yo, Eddie just completely bailed on me after he arranged a meeting” is important.
Aria left Radley in a hurry.
Eddie saw her, followed her and acted rather sketchy. He probably knew she knew he was the one dropping off the painting. Now, that doesn’t really give him a motive to arrange a top-importance-super-asap-sos-meeting.
So if that meeting was so important and triggered by Aria’s behavior, why did he never show up?
I think he was going to spill the beans to Ezra. I think maybe he didn’t know Aria knew so he was going to tell Ezra: “Aria, your ex is in Radley, acting suspicious, being accused of stealing stuff and looking for things.”
If that’s the case, then he would finally tell what he has known all along. As I have said previously, everything links back to a Radley sub plotline and strangely enough Eddie seems to have all the keys to solve it.
Every time a door to Radley opens, e’s there. He was there with Mona, with Spencer, with Marion and now, he’s there with, you guessed it, the Bethany Young affair. How come he knows so much?
"He is big on self-preservation" Spencer
Up until now, Eddie Lamb had always told us enough to create an intrigue, but never enough to solve it. He has been leaving clues floating since he first appeared. This makes me believe he knows it’s dangerous to tell. He knows he can never say too much. He knows it’s never safe.
And now, after he appears to be letting go of that preservation, he doesn’t show up? That doesn’t add up!
My guess is that the person or people behind the Bethany Young mystery made him evaporate.
Hopefully not, I want to see more of him! I hope I am wrong on the evaporation thing and that next week he shows up with some lame excuse as to why he couldn’t make it! Maybe -A blackmailed him?
AT THIS POINT, I AM JUST HOLDING ON TO EVERY PIECE OF INFORMATION
Vampire Diaries fans have seen Elena Gilbert grieve, but when Season 6 premieres, she’ll have seemingly moved on from losing the love of her life, Damon. One of the big questions…
Omg… this made so emotional… for the last months I’ve been avoiding facing TVD and stuff but it’s just like rght around the corner… I can’t stand this! I am getting too emotional, god, I’m far too attached to this damn tv show.
I have been thinking this for a while now… PLL didn’t begin when Ali’s body was found, it begun one Halloween when Ali got the first text.
Mona was original A- so Mona was the one sending that text.
If you pay attention, -A in the first two series threaten to expose their secrets. -A only cared about their secrets, it was truly blackmail. “Do this and nothing will happen. Do that and no one will know about xxx”. Mona wanted to get vengeance, a vendetta, something because for years she was bullied, and when she got to be the Queen B and best friends with Hannah, she had to face losing her bff to the girls who one mistreated her.
Okay, okay, okay that’s what we know about Mona’s motive but is it really enough to make her detest Ali so much? Of course, Mona does have a mental problem. I don’t remember if we were told what mental problem, but I am guessing maybe she’s bipolar? I don’t know. But is it really enough to gather an army, waste time and money on torturing those girls, finding dirt on everyone, etc? And how did she manage to control an entire town, on her own, for about two years? Yes, because -A controlled everything.
My guess is that the real -A, the one who created the A Team, led Mona into believing she was calling the shots. The real A was an adult, I am pretty sure about that, and used all of those people who hated Ali in her advantage. Meanwhile, -A was busy planning and plotting, looking for Ali, and the Mona team was scaring the girls, once again, with heir secrets.
Eventually, -A “steals” the game from Mona and starts calling the shots. That’s when the threats are no longer about exposing, but about hurting. The real -A wants the girls to suffer, want Alison to be in pain and is not afraid to kill, sabotage, bribe or do anything to achieve that. If you analyze this kind of behavior, it could fit right into a mental problem called neurosis:
Meaning that this person can function in society. This person doesn’t look deranged or crazy. This person looks like your average town person, only, it’s not.
There are many forms of neurosis: obsessive–compulsive disorder, anxiety neurosis, hysteria (in which anxiety may be discharged through a physical symptom), and a nearly endless variety of phobias as well as obsessions such as pyromania.
effects of neurosis can involve:
…anxiety, sadness or depression, anger, irritability, mental confusion, low sense of self-worth, etc., behavioral symptoms such as phobic avoidance, vigilance, impulsive and compulsive acts, lethargy, etc., cognitive problems such as unpleasant or disturbing thoughts, repetition of thoughts and obsession, habitual fantasizing, negativity and cynicism, etc. Interpersonally, neurosis involves dependency, aggressiveness, perfectionism, schizoid isolation, socio-culturally inappropriate behaviors, etc.
So what am I saying? I’m saying that the real -A team begun in Radley before that Halloween when Ali got the text.
I think Marion Cavanaugh is black veil/A and that she and Bethany Young united against the DiLaurentis’ woman. Why? I don’t have any idea, but I think we are getting clues on this matter, we just haven’t been smart enough.
I think Marion had neurosis, and that whatever happened between her and Jessica was very, very, very huge. Marlene said we would feel sorry for -A and understand or sympathize with it’s motives, so if we could sympathize, what’s to prevent other people from doing it? I think that she faked her death and gathered her own army. Then, she gave the initial game to Mona and to those who hated Ali and were happy she was gone.
Mona wanted Ali gone; uber A doesn’t. Mona just wants an Ali-free life; uber A want and needs to completely destroy her and the girls.
I also realized that contrary to what I said in my Marion theory, the key did not revolve around Jessica otherwise, she wouldn’t have been killed. A wants to punish, so why would she kill Jessica and not Ali? Why not torture them both? Was the killing of Jessica only a way to upset Ali even more?
This was a very long post, and I’m sorry, but I feel like Marlene has been giving us clues after clues and we have to just learn a way to look at them with the proper lens. Maybe we have almost every piece to the puzzle and all we need is to figure out how those pieces fit in together.
So guys I had this idea, of making like a series of “books featured in PLL” where I write down their plots and think of how they relate to the show because in all honesty, the show is told in the details and not in the breakthroughs… So yeah…
First book- To Kill A Mockingbird
The story takes place during three years (1933–35) of the Great Depression in the fictional “tired old town” of Maycomb, Alabama, the seat of Maycomb County. It focuses on six-year-old Scout Finch, who lives with her older brother, Jem, and their widowed father, Atticus, a middle-aged lawyer. Jem and Scout befriend a boy named Dill, who visits Maycomb to stay with his aunt each summer. The three children are terrified of, and fascinated by, their neighbor, the reclusive ”Boo” Radley. The adults of Maycomb are hesitant to talk about Boo, and, for many years few have seen him. The children feed one another’s imagination with rumors about his appearance and reasons for remaining hidden, and they fantasize about how to get him out of his house. After two summers of friendship with Dill, Scout and Jem find that someone leaves them small gifts in a tree outside the Radley place. Several times the mysterious Boo makes gestures of affection to the children, but, to their disappointment, he never appears in person.
Afterwards, what happens is that Atticus, the children’s father, has to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman although the whole town doesn’t approve of that. During trial, it is proven that the black man was indeed innocent and that the towns drunk (Ewell) was lying. However, eventually they convict the Tom, the black man, just because of his skin color.
Despite Tom’s conviction Bob Ewell is humiliated by the events of the trial, and vows revenge. He spits in Atticus’ face, tries to break into the judge’s house, and menaces Tom Robinson’s widow. Finally, he attacks the defenseless Jem and Scout while they walk home on a dark night after the school Halloweenpageant. One of Jem’s arms is broken in the struggle, but amid the confusion someone comes to the children’s rescue. The mysterious man carries Jem home, where Scout realizes that he is Boo Radley.
Sheriff Tate arrives and discovers that Bob Ewell has died during the fight. The sheriff argues with Atticus about the prudence and ethics of charging Jem (whom Atticus believes to be responsible) or Boo (whom Tate believes to be responsible). Atticus eventually accepts the sheriff’s story that Ewell simply fell on his own knife. Boo asks Scout to walk him home, and after she says goodbye to him at his front door he disappears again. While standing on the Radley porch, Scout imagines life from Boo’s perspective, and regrets that they had never repaid him for the gifts he had given them.
I see A LOT of resemblances between this book and PLL. The mysterious Boo Radley character, who reminds me both of -A and of Alison but also, of the mystery that surrounds the Radley Sanitarium. So we know that Rosewood’s Radley was named after the mysterious do-gooder that helped the siblings (who IMO remind me of Jenna and Toby, or maybe, of Jenna and a certain little twin?). Also, the book also reaches a climax on Halloween,just like in PLL when Ali gets the first threat.
The last lines of the summary, also led me to think something… What if -A did something for someone, and that certain someone decided to join -A’s crusade as a repayment? What if PLL is the “sequel” of the action of this book, more or less, and Marlene King gave us the key to figure it all out just when the show started. In season 1 the book was mentioned more than once, and you see, there are no coincidences in Rosewood so what if what we’re looking at is the story of how the -A team begun?
BESIDES, the author, Lee, said he had a friend just like Dill. That friend was prone to making up really good stories.
Lee modeled the character of Dill on her childhood friend, Truman Capote, known then as Truman Persons. Just as Dill lived next door to Scout during the summer, Capote lived next door to Lee with his aunts while his mother visited New York City. Like Dill, Capote had an impressive imagination and a gift for fascinating stories. Both Lee and Capote were atypical children: both loved to read. Lee was a scrappy tomboy who was quick to fight, but Capote was ridiculed for his advanced vocabulary and lisp. She and Capote made up and acted out stories they wrote on an old Underwood typewriter Lee’s father gave them. They became good friends when both felt alienated from their peers; Capote called the two of them “apart people”. In 1960, Capote and Lee traveled to Kansas together to investigate the multiple murders that were the basis for Capote’s nonfiction novel In Cold Blood.
So guys I know this is a bit inconclusive, and messy and not too helpful but this could be something. Like, I think every book given a spotlight in PLL is a piece of the puzzle and if we contrast their plots maybe we’ll get to know the truth! I am pretty confident about that!
P.S. In the biography of the author, it is said that his mother dies from Neurosis (Neurosis is a class of functional mental disorders involving distress but neither delusions nor hallucinations, whereby behavior is not outside socially acceptable norms. Those suffering from it are said to be neurotic.).
Once again, this led me back to, you guessed it, Marion! Everything kind of leads back to Radley and to Marion, and this book is proof of that!
