‘A’ Lair

Updated through Season 3, Episode 2

Alison’s Disappearance/Death

  • Goes missing labor day weekend during a sleepover in Spencer’s barn
  • Suspects:
    • Toby Cavanaugh – hated Alison after she made him take the fall for Jenna’s accident. His tattoo could refer to Alison’s death.
    • Ian Thomas – Alison was seeing him in secret the summer she disappeared. There is video of them together on the night she disappeared.
    • Jason DiLaurentis – he and Ali didn’t always get along and he doesn’t remember anything from the night she disappeared. Ali had their grandmother change her will to exclude Jason not long before she died.
  • Spencer potentially the last person to have seen or heard her
  • Her body is found buried in the DiLaurentis yard a year later
  • Alison was seeing an older guy who had a girlfriend that summer (Ian)
  • Her friendship bracelet is found in the woods. How did it get there? (The bracelet they found is a copy, A planted it)
  • What did Ali talk to Jenna about when she visited her in the hospital? (Alison visited Jenna when she found Ian’s videos that showed the truth about Jenna and Toby and used them to blackmail Jenna to keep quiet about the accident. And to stay out of Rosewood.)
  • Who is Ali talking to in the “I know you want to kiss me video?” (Ian)
  • Who took the photo of Ali from her bedroom the night she disappeared? (UNKNOWN)
  • Why were there fibers of Toby’s sweater Ali borrowed found on Spencer’s bracelet? (A planted this to frame Spencer)
  • The buried field hockey stick on the edge of the Hasting/DiLaurentis properties? (UNKNOWN). Why was Peter so mad to see it?
  • Who took page 5 of Ali’s autopsy report? (Jenna and Garrett)
  • Why don’t Garrett and Jenna want the Liars finding out that Ian didn’t kill Ali and why don’t they want Jason to remember that night? (UNKNOWN)
  • Alison was also getting A messages before she disappeared.
    • Is this why she created the alter ego Vivian Darkbloom?
  • Who is the guy from the phone number in Ali’s red coat? (Jonah, he worked for a cellphone company and Ali was going to pay him to track down who she was getting texts from but she never paid him). After the liars pay him the money they eventually learn that Ali was getting texts from more than one number, from both Melissa and A meaning that Melissa isn’t A.
  • What was Melissa doing in Ali’s room the night she died?
  • Garrett is arrested for Ali’s death but it all seems to be a setup by Jenna.
    • What makes Veronica want to represent Garrett?
    • What medical records is he talking to Spencer about when he says medical records don’t lie?
  • Who stole Ali’s body?
    • Why was Jenna driving Emily around the night Ali’s body got stolen?

Who is A? (The First)

  • Someone who knows all of the Liar’s secrets and is taunting them with them
  • Suspects (based on the Liar’s theories, not a viewers)
    • Jenna (potentially with Toby’s help). Alison and the other 4 are responsible for blinding Jenna so she certainly as motive to want to get revenge on them. Also she is very perceptive. Because she is blind people underestimate how much she notices.
    • Alison – maybe she isn’t really dead and it is her that is torturing them. We already know that Alison is a great manipulator and all of the secrets that A currently has on them are secrets that only Alison knew about.
    • Noel Kahn – he writes on Ezra’s car “I see you” making Hanna believe that he is A. After she texts the girls that she knows who A is she gets hit with a car. He is also super shady and always around.
    • Melissa – becomes a suspect for being both Ali’s killer and possibly A. She hated Ali and she was furiously looking for her the night she died.
  • Did A kill Ms. Potter? (This is never really given an answer but it is possible, I like to believe they did)
  • Did Ali know who A was? (UNKNOWN)
  • Mona is revealed to be the first A.
  • Who is in the red coat talking to Mona at the end of Season 2? Was she taking orders from this person?
  • Who else was potentially helping Mona?
  • Mona didn’t give Emily the massage in Season 2 (she was with Hannah) and she didn’t knock Ian off the bell tower or take his body. So who did those things?

Other Shady Characters

  • Who destroyed Alison’s memorial? (Lucas)
  • What does Alison have on Toby to make him take the fall for The Jenna Thing? (His relationship with Jenna)
  • Toby’s tattoo “901 Free At Last” what does it mean? (Refers to him being free of Jenna not Alison)
  • What does the message Jenna got “214” mean? (214 was Caleb’s locker number, how he was passing her information)
  • Who pushed the girl down the stairs at that frat party? Or did she really fall? (UNKNOWN)
  • Who killed Ian? (UNKNOWN)
  • Who is the shadow in Jason’s window? (UNKNOWN)
  • What is the Jason thing that Jenna and Garrett discuss? (UNKNOWN)
  • Who is breaking into the houses of Rosewood? (Mike Montgomery)
  • If Ian didn’t kill Ali then why did he need an alibi? (UNKNOWN)
  • Who wrote Jason the note “I know what you did” the night Ali disappeared? And what did he do? (Jenna and Garrett wrote the note but we don’t know what he did.)
  • What war does Peter Hastings have with Jessica DiLaurentis? (They had an affair way back in the day and Jason is their child which neither of their spouses ever knew. Peter terrified that Veronica would find out)
    • What secret does Peter have with Jason? (Peter is actually Jason’s father)
    • Part of Peter’s drama with the DiLaurentis’s has to do with changing the grandmother’s will back to including Jason so that he wasn’t a suspect in Ali’s murder. Being Jason’s father he felt he owed it.
    • Did Peter give Ali $15,000 to keep quiet about his affair with Jessica? If not where did she get the money?
  • Why did Jenna turn on Garrett? (UNKNOWN) What did she turn him in?
  • What would Jason and Maya be talking about? How would they know each other?
