We’re changing things up for this week’s edition of “Who’s Your ‘A’ Today“! Normally, we’d focus on clues and suspects from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode which happens to be episode 2.21, “Breaking The Code.” However, when Pretty Little Liars director Norman Buckley recently tweeted out the following nugget of info we knew we had to head back to the good old days of season 1:
If you recall, Pretty Little Liars episode 1.12 is called “Salt Meets Wound.” (A just loves.kicking a pretty girl when she’s down.) And because we adore you all and are as eager to unmask Rosewood’s most vicious texter as any Pretty Little Liars viewer out there, we re-watched the episode (TWICE) to look out for subtle clues. Here’s what we deemed suspicious:
1. Whereas Sean gifted Hanna a regular teddy bear, Lucas gave her a stuffed toy panda bear at the hospital when he visited her after her scary hit-and-run. When she returned home from the hospital, Hanna didn’t have Sean’s bear but she had Lucas’! She placed his panda bear on the counter inside her kitchen, which is where she happened to find the best box of spaghetti ever (stuffed with wads of cash money)! And what happened immediately after she did? ‘A’ sent her a text about her mom’s little “loan”…which gets us to thinking. WHAT IF THERE’S A SPY CAM HIDDEN INSIDE ONE OF THE BEAR’S EYES? Ahh!
2. After spotting Aria making out with their English teacher at Mona Vanderwaal’s GLAMP fiesta, Noel Kahn decided to use this information to his advantage. So what did he do? He approached Mr. Fitz after class and
blackmailed “encouraged” him to change the grade on his mediocre essay from a C to a undeserved A. So why did this moment make us do a double take? Because of the way Noel signed wrote out his ‘A’! (That and the fact that he was raiding Hanna’s “Carb Cabinet” at her surprise party and holds a grudge against Alison for breaking him up with his middle school lady friend…) It looks oddly similar to the one scribbled on all those menacing notes sent to the Liars. Check it out below!
3. Although there’s nothing at this point to tie him back to Alison DiLaurentis, the blackboard in Ezra Fitz’s old classroom is filled with literary notes and themes from The Great Gatsby (which just so happens to includes a hit-and-r…all written in capital letters which something A is renowned for. There is no such thing as lower-case in A’s world of secrets and death threats.
4. While grabbing coffee with her Detective Olivia Benson look-alike mom, Spencer spies a photo on her mom’s phone of Melissa and Ian on their honeymoon. Except, Spencer remarks that it doesn’t look like the newlyweds are living it up at all…more like loitering outside her dad’s law office actually! Hmm. Hmm. Hmm. Why would Melissa pretend to be away when, in fact, she isn’t? (Additionally, how funny is it that Mrs. Hastings said “speak of the devil” when her eldest daughter buzzed her. Just saying.)
That’s all the potential ‘A’ connections we made for now. However, sometimes when you’re looking too hard for something you tend to overlook it. While watching “Salt Meets Wound” did YOU happen to notice anything out of the ordinary on Pretty Little Liars Season 1, Episode 12? Leave your observations in the comment section below!
