I think this was Wilden because CeCe was involved with him as well. Remember that Ali told Emily that she was breaking up with someone for a friend. Considering CeCe is now the top suspect in Wilden’s murder, and we know that he was being blackmailed by “A”, there is surely a lot more to be revealed about how Wilden factors into the overall mystery.
As for Ezra, as Board Shorts he would have known both CeCe and Wilden through Ali and as “A” he would have been able use to them to do his bidding.
Sasha Pieterse said that we’ll find out more in season 5 about how Alison was able to stay on the run, so if Alison survives this season maybe we will get to see her adjusting to a regular life in Rosewood. Based on some of the behind-the-scenes stuff, we might get a touch of this in the finale.
I agree with this very much. No one really asks who the “A” was during season 3. This is clearly much bigger than Mona and Toby(especially Toby because we don’t know what he learned, if anything, as an A team member) and we know that CeCe could at least be partially motivativated by revenge because she was kicked out school. The flashbacks we’ll be getting in the 4b finale with CeCe, Ali, and Ezra will hopefully explain why, when, and how CeCe and Ezra decided to team up.
Red Coat really did visit Mona, the only issue up for debate is the end of UnmAsked(“I did everything you asked.”) and what that scene represents. When Red Coat was visiting Mona she wore an Ali mask, she never let Mona see her real face.
Mona was most likely being used by Red Coat(who in turn was being used by Uber A) as a patsy. From the beginning there were “A” deeds that didn’t make sense when tied to Mona and I think when we find out more about Ezra’s association with the “A” moniker it will become clearer what her role really was.
One of the producers, Joseph Dougherty I believe, said something along the lines that the Halloween special focused on “Ravenswood’s reality”, so it’s very possible that that scene, flashing lights included, wasn’t meant to be taken literally.
A lot of people think CeCe was spying on Ezra at the end of Bring the Hoe Down, but she could have been listening in because she wasn’t expecting Ezra to not be alone. We saw her trying to reach someone earlier in the episode and we know now that she was calling from what it is presumably Ezra’s lair. If Ezra never got back to her, she probably felt like she had to go back to Rosewood to talk to him, but when she showed up he was with Aria and obviously she couldn’t talk to him then. This also would explain why she was watching Ezra with Aria again in the 4a finale, if she was the Red Coat we see watching them. With that said, another twist on top of the twist of her being Red Coat could be that she’s a double agent of sorts. Vanessa Ray, the actress who plays CeCe, said that she believes CeCe would help the girls and she would know better than I would!
We’re supposed to find out more about what happened between Ali and Spencer on the night Ali disappeared, and why Spencer was awake that night when the other girls weren’t. Her secret could easily just be that whatever drug she’ll be taking in 4b, she was also taking that night. It would explain why she hasn’t been able to remember everything that happened that night up to this point. I think it will be big and crazy, but we’ll also have to keep in mind that what we find out might not be what it seems because Spencer was in an altered state.
The NAT Club and how they factor into the mystery surrounding Ali’s disappearance really is intriguing. I think because we’re going to find out who killed Ian in the 4b finale the door will open to more reveals about NAT and Ali’s, and possibly Ezra’s, involvement with them. Jason told Spencer that he thought Ian was making videos for someone else. That someone else could be Ezra.
This is why I can’t believe what Marlene tweeted after Mona’s reveal. She said that Mona acted alone. She said that Mona didn’t give Emily that massage, push Ian, or kill him but she was behind everything else. And maybe that part is true, but only if she was taking orders from somebody of a higher power the entire time. At the end of 2.25, she says that she did everything red coat told her to do. When Spencer was being recruited in the same episode, Mona said that she had to earn the right to be apart of it. She said, “You can join the A team or you can disappear.” If she was working alone and the only thing anybody else did was give Emily that massage, how could they be a team?
My only guess is that A was Mona’s original idea back when Ali was still alive, but the story Mona tells about somebody stealing the game from her is only half true. Maybe the people who stole the game were the rule makers to begin with. Maybe she’s been taking instruction since the beginning. When unmAsked first aired and Mona told red coat that she did everything they asked her to, I immediately assumed that everything Mona had done was red coat’s idea.
Now that we know red coat is Cece, my guess is that she’s Ezra’s cover. She works for him. The question is whether the tangled web ends there or if he has an advisor too.
I believe Marlene said that Uber A wouldn’t be revealed until the end of the series. I know a lot of people are taking that as confirmation that Ezra isn’t Uber A since he was already revealed, but he really wasn’t. He was shown in a place that looks similar but very different to Mona’s lair. I do believe he’s A and I do believe he could be Uber A as well, but we have no clue when they’re going to confirm his place on or off the team.
That was my arguement against something you didn’t even say. You’re welcome. Don’t mention it!
spencer hastings in s1
The first time Ezra sees Aria after she kisses another guy.
and it happens WAY too much
Isn’t it a little creepy that Ezra always looks like he knows what she’s done?
Janel Parrish for Glenn Nutley
He didn’t die when he was pushed. If he did, A would have just set it up to look like he hung himself and they certainly wouldn’t have shot him in the head if that wasn’t his cause of death. Ian and Alison were seeing each other. He had a relationship with Spencer. He was married to Spencer’s pregnant sister at the time of his death. The guilt got to be too much for him. It really did seem like a solved case until other people started dying too.
It’s also safe to say that Wilden never, ever trusted the girls and whether his antics were official business or his own investigation, there has always been a lot of undercover work being done after Alison disappeared. It’s kind of funny because at least here in America, the police really can be negligent and infuriating. Rosewood has their shit together in comparison to some places in this country.
Noel dated Jenna and Mona. I’m sure he isn’t exactly innocent and that he knows more than he lets on, but I don’t think he wrote that. I’m pretty sure that Jenna did. At that time, Jenna thought Garrett killed Alison. He told Spencer that he pretended to kill her and the flashback showed that he used the stick Toby found buried in Spencer’s backyard. I think that was a smart way to confirm that he was telling Spencer the truth and Jenna really did/does think Garrett killed Alison. So Jenna writing that on Truth Up Day makes sense.
