How the 'A' Stole Christmas

Uber A is the leader of The A-Team. She makes her first physical appearance in UnmAsked as Red Coat. She stole the game from Mona Vanderwaal in Season 3. She orders The A-Team members what to do, while concealing her identity from them too. Her first disguise was as Red Coat. She wore a red trench coat, a blond wig, and the Alison mask. After her Red Coat was burned up due to The Incident at Thornhill Lodge, she takes on her new disguise as The Black Widow. She returns in Season 5, more powerful than ever, and now, is acting alone. She is also Alison's Attempted Killer, and Jessica DiLaurentis's killer, as revealed in Run, Ali, Run.


  • At the end of "Miss Me x 100" we see the Black Veil and Dress in Big A's lair, so it has been confirmed that The Black Widow is Big A.
  • Black Widow killed and buried Jessica.
  • Marlene has revealed on Twitter and Instagram that Uber A's identity will be revealed in season 6. Source Source
  • Red Coat and The Black Widow are the same person as Uber A.
  • Recently in an interview Keegan Allen revealed "A" is so clearly in every episode, since the beginning of season 1. This would suggest that "A" is a character we've known from the very beginning. He also stated that if fans tried hard enough they could figure it out too. This should eliminate a list of suspects who we met later in the series. [1]
