SPOILER ALERT: WARNING! WARNING! PLEASE DO NOT READ PAST THIS ALERT IF YOU HAVE NOT YET WATCHED THE PRETTY LITTLE LIARS SEASON 3 FINALE! ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!
“Oh well even the best laid plans go awry.” – Mona Vanderwaal
If you thought that the Pretty Little Liars Season 3 summer premiere was something to run home about, then you clearly have not watched this year’s mid-season finale — “The Lady Killer”! We don’t even know where to begin — what with Spoby sex, Lindon James violence, cabin abduction, and gun control mayhem, the episode had us screaming from beginning to end. All we can say is that the PLL Season 3 mid-season finale terrified the living daylights out of us…and the most jaw-dropping part from the whole damn thrill-ride was A’s identity.
And who exactly is this new “A” who gets a happy from playing with the body parts of dead girls, scattering them all around Rosewood, and creating creeptastic jewelry from the bits and pieces? Wait for it…Toby Cavanaugh! TOBY CAVANAUGH?! OMG OMG OMG! (Will we ever stop shrieking OMG? Perhaps someday as we slowly drift toward a catatonic state from all the shock.) Did we expect this? Sure, we’ve all had our suspicions about him because, let’s face it, he’s one sketchy dude. He keeps to himself a lot and is more than physically capable of racing around town tormenting high school chicks. Nevertheless, just like Spencer has been doing throughout the past three seasons, we were really starting to fall for him and pegged him for one of those rebels whose big heart and kind soul were concealed somewhere underneath his bad-ass leather jacket (and super fine set of abs). We were gravely mistaken though according to the series of unfortunate events that occurred tonight…
Yes, it’s true, precious Pretty Little Liars viewers — Mona Vanderwaal’s vicious accomplice and fellow A-team member is none other than the stud with a “901 Free At Last” tat (the date of Alison’s disappearance) permanently plastered on his rib cage. Our THEORIES based on tonight’s HUGE reveal (again — nothing is set in stone in Rosewood — these are simply theories racing through our minds): He’s the one who shoved Ian Thomas off of the bell-tower to his death. He is the one who locked Spencer in the fun-house in Season 1. He is the one who dug up Alison DiLaurentis’ body and has been carting it around town. He’s the one who has been sending all those sickening, stomach-dropping texts. He is part of the A-team. Then again, it’s hard to believe that shy, contemplative Toby could be responsible for such monstrosities — what if he’s being blackmailed into performing such dark deeds to protect Spencer? Dun dun dun!
So tell us: What was your initial reaction upon discovering this disturbing news? Do you think Toby is actually evil or is he helping Mona and her creepy team members out for another reason? Post your theories in the comments!
