A's Motivations

  • I was just wondering how the writers will justify Ezra's (if he ends being A) or CeCe's actions for being A. I mean, we already had the mental illness storyline with Mona, I don't want them to repeat that. I want a clear and logical explanation of what did the Liars so wrong to make a Teacher and a College Student to wanna dedicate their lives to make a misery of four/five/six (if we count Ali, Mona or both) high school students. 

    Anyone agrees with me?

    • Well, call me a stupid, but in my opinion, Ezra is another blackmailed -A. Just think about this thing: why killing Alison and stealing her diary to know her secrets and torturing her friends!? It doesn't have much sense. So, I think that Ezra may have "killed" Ali, CeCe saw everything and forced him to join the Team, or CeCe could have "killed" her and blackmailed Ezra he would have got blamed for the homicide. Plus, I don't trust Alison and I wouldn't be surprised if in a season finale we'll see her in that black hood.

      Just my opinion!

    • I can't believe they did this to EZRA!! Halloween episode was crazy! Ezra needs to be good. He's the only good guy left. Caleb's left :( And Toby has shady story-lines. EZRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! :(

      Toby's good (supposedly), so no.  Ezra doesn't "need" to be good!   In fact, I think it's safe to say that Ali was afraid of him; let's be honest, if she was afraid of Wren, she'd be able to come back to Rosewood because Wren is in London with Melissa.  Ezra is still in Rosewood and he's evil :)

    • Agreed, I mean!  Here is something interesting though...when Grunwald said that one of the liars was touched by the one Ali fears the most.....did she mean Spenser, who was attacked by gas mask, or Aria, who has been touched by Ezra, obviously.  See, this makes me think its not Ezra she fears the most.....because Grunwald would have always felt that when she was around Aria.  So I dont think Ezra is gas mask...which leads me to, who was it?  Also, if you caught the preview for 4B, Ali is crying saying that she was wrong.....wrong about who is after her???  Man, I cannot wait for 4B, I think it will be the most detailed and answered season yet!!!

    • Grunwald said the one that Ali fears the most, does this mean Ali fears them the most of one of the liars have been touched by them the most?

      Grunwald says to Emily, Aria, and Spencer "One of you has been touched by the one Alison feared the most"... meaning, Alison was afraid of either: Paige, Maya, Toby, Wren, or Ezra.  Let's narrow it down, shall we?

      Paige - Alison wasn't afraid of her; if anything, it was the other way around.  Alison loved tormenting Paige.

      Maya - Alison, most likely, didn't know Maya so you can't be afraid of someone that you don't know.

      Toby - Again, Alison wasn't afraid of him.  They used to be friends at one point, but she hated him.  She wasn't afraid of him.

      Wren - If Alison was truly afraid of Wren, she'd be able to return to Rosewood because he is in London with Melissa.  It'd be safe for her to return if this was the case, but she said "i want to come home, but it's not safe.  You guys have to help me".


      That leaves Ezra.

    • Of course, Ezra is the one who tried to bury alive Alison.

      But don't forget, Ms Grunwald doesn't know about -A, so she protected her by a dangerous person. But there's something even more dangerous than Ezra and that's Big -A.

      Something tells me he's -A against its own will.

      Jason disappeared and Alison knows that. If he really was that person, then Alison would have nothing to be afraid of.

    • I can't stop thinking about Ali's mention about her appearance in "Moments Later". It seemed that she was watching her friends back then, she knew about A and was referencing to "that bitch", so she seemed to know that it was Mona at that time. But she also must have seen Ezra in Rosewood at that time, and did not seemed that afraid about him and his starting relationship with the girls. So maybe Ezra is not "the one Alison fears the most", otherwise she would have warned her friends during one of her visits, wouldn't she?

      What did she say again?  I don't remember.  And yeah, she seemed to know that Mona was A.  But we haven't seen her around the liars when they were with Ezra, so it's possible she might not have known about it then.  Besides, I think she did warn the girls a few times.  When Aria asked who A was (i believe that's what was asked), Alison said "if i tell you the truth, you don't have to believe it.  I think that was a subtle way of letting aria know.  i mean, if it was anyone else but Ezra, she could have just said so.  also, when aria asked if she sees A, alison said "everywhere I look.  So you do" then quickly added "you all do.  I'm surprised spencer hasn't figured it out.".   Again, why would she automatically say "so do you" unless it was someone really close to aria?  if it wasn't someone close to her, alison could have just said "you all do too".. yet she first said "so do you" hinting that the person is close to Aria.

    • She said that the four of them (the girls) combined remember more of the night of Ali's Disappearance than they realize, that telling the Truth to the wrong person brought her to where she was now and that she has to do something against A. The whole quote is on

      http://pretty-little-liars.wikia.com/wiki/Moments_Later_/_Extended_Quote

      I still think Alison's warnings were a bit too vague, if I imagine there is a creepy stalker who tried to kill me and brought me into a situation where I have to hide myself and let my family and friends believe that I'm dead and then I see that guy coming nearer and nearer to those I should care about, I think I would warn them directly, especially when I'm risking my "disguise" by showing myself, even if I'm discrete enough to appear only in moments where my witnesses are easy to be fooled to think of me as an imagination - another factor that helps me to be very specific.

      I'm totally unsure what to believe, everything in my mind screams "RED HERING" when it comes to EzrA, and everything that seems to be a clue to prove it is way too blurred to be true.

    • Can I tell my opinion?

      =D

      Somethin makes me think Alison might know not everything from the beginning. She has been watchin over the Liars all this time, but she still investigates, along with them.

      The first time she appeared was in the hospital and talked to Hanna, right? That showed she wasn't afraid of A, but she was afraid of who attempted to kill her. So, she obviously could handle Mona, but wasn't able to do that cause her "murder" was still around. Then appeared to Emily and to Aria. When Aria asked Ali who A was, the girl answered A was everywhere. Probably she was referrin to the A Team, cause CeCe, Mona, Toby and Ezra appear in Liars' life almost everyday.

      Here's my idea: Alison goes away after bein buried. An year later, she gets they've found "her" body, so she comes back to Rosewood and gets into this new game of A. CeCe plans this game only for a reason: make Ali come back and challenge the girl and see how far CeCe can torture the Liars until her closest friend doesn't expose herself and put her own life on the line to save them. It's a battle between the two of them, good vs bad, or mean girl vs mean girl. As It in Stephen King's book was the Fear, Alison must face the darkest and the worst part of herself, represented by CeCe. Since Alison can be the only one who can defeat A, CeCe uses Ezra: if he's in town and he's able to hurt again, Ali can't touch her enemy.

      And Ezra is a man in huge trouble, he got blackmailed by CeCe and he has to serve her and join the A-Team. He probably blames himself for what he did and probably he would never hurt someone on his purpose, again. Just think about New Grave World: he fought with Spencer and A has never been so close to kill one of the girls, but he didn't.

      He could try to free himself and tell all the truth to the Liars, but:

      1) They could never believe him and they'll stay aware from him.

      2) As a result of his betrayal to A Team, CeCe could kill him and the Liars would lose the only one chance to win.

      So, if we won't have further shocking reveals: Alison is afraid of Ezra and hides from him; Ezra is forced to be A but he would escape from this situation.

      If the Liars get what really happened and they ask the right questions to Ezra (in order do preserve his life), well... Alison would be able to come back to Rosewood and she would be INVINCIBLE!

    • Thanks for sharing your idea, it really helps me to see a bit deeper through the fog in my mind. It would make a lot of sense. I kicked CeCe out of my theories because I thought her to be merely another pawn after the liars found out that Ezra payed her, but if she had something on him it could also be the that she blackmailed him for the money... It also leaves the possibility that CeCe and Ezra are just pawns and we haven't figured out the real mastermind at all, so we would still have enough plot for Season 5.

    • Mrs. Grunwald said that one of the girls was touched by the person Ali fears the most.

      Aria was touched by CeCe in episode 11 or 12 when she helped CeCe not to fall down. So maybe this might be?

    • If Ezra was Big A , it would be too easy, wouldn't it? I also think it must be someone who is more in the background, someone we wouldn't expect...

    • Hanna, Spencer and possibly Mona were touched by Wren

    • "One of you has been touched by the one Alison feared the most"

      it cant be Ezra because technically he has touched both Spencer & Aria, Grunwald said "one."

    • It could be Emily.  She is the only one of the girls who has been in relationships (and kissed) women, and many people seem to think uber A is female.

    • I think the Gas Mask A and Ezra dressed as Gas Mask are 2 different people because the leaked script reveals who Ezra is and how he's involved in all of this. Knowing what I know there's no way he's the gas mask A who attacked Spencer. Either that or I'm wrong and they are the same person and he is A and Ali's attempted killer but he's blackmailed by CeCe into being A and he didn't really mean to hurt Ali he just blacked out or panicked possibly? Idk which is true but we'll find out

    • Toby's good (supposedly), so no.  Ezra doesn't "need" to be good!   In fact, I think it's safe to say that Ali was afraid of him; let's be honest, if she was afraid of Wren, she'd be able to come back to Rosewood because Wren is in London with Melissa.  Ezra is still in Rosewood and he's evil :)

      I don't think Wren is really in London I think he's part of the A deal stuff and so is Melissa. We all know from the last episode that Spencers slowly getting addicted to drugs well I saw a page somewhere where one of the writers or producers or somebody big involved with the making of the show said Wren is going to try to convince Spencer's family to put her back in Radley for her addiction issues. Meaning he's probably not in London and he's got his own agenda for getting Spencer back in Radley. She's his loose end she and Mona know that he was doing stuff he wasn't supposed to while he worked at Radley plus that suspicious phone call? (can't remember the episode)

    • I think at this point the A game is not a game like it was at first anymore. I think whoever is involved in the A team is tryna cover up their actions because they realize the Liars are getting more stronger and more privy to information that will eventually lead to the fall of the A team and whoever is behind it all. It's like a war now and either the Liars or the A team will be victorious.

      Just to reply to this, Paige was one of the few people Ali did seem to be afraid of. Cece mentioned it and she looked scared as she walked away from Paige in the flashhback they shared.



      And to the person above, I think it was Marlene who said A is getting more dangerous as they are under more pressure and more desperate.


      There is still more infomation and secrets to come I think (as this is PLL) so anyone could have a motive.

    • Alison was the leader of the Liars and she always hated people so she tormented them being the  A team whoever they are. So A is seeking revenge against Alison. 

        Loading editor
    • With all of these theories, no one ever mentions what A gets out of each thing that he and/or she has done to the girls, their parents, and Alison. Revenge against Alison and the girls for some petty high school thing, but then why would they do the things that have affected their parents? Why send Mrs. Marin to prison (possibly to protect CeCe, but then wouldn't A go after Travis for telling the police that it wasn't her?)? Why drive a car into Emily's house (to ensure that Emily needed a place to go, which conveniently ended up being Alison's bedroom?)? Why attack Ella with bees (to ensure that Aria would persuade her to go to Vienna?)? Why drive Spencer crazy (to ensure that she ended up in Radley so that she would take Mona up on her offer?--Mona's motive maybe)? Why send Zack the note that was "from" Hanna (create further friction between Aria and Hanna; dividing the liars)? Alison didn't say anything implicating the girls, but she did entirely remove herself from suspicion without fully disclosing her version of events from that night (Spencer went back to sleep after their confrontation, according to Ali in A is for Answers). Why did she leave out this detail? She had to know from their questions that they thought that it was Spencer. The police know that there are holes in Ali's story, according to Mrs. Fields. Hasn't she still been removed from scrutiny too easily?

    • yeah i do agree Alison's story the cops know there's more to it u can just kinda tell u know? and she left it out cause she knows she's losing the girls as supporters it's like what Mona said in the bathroom "she can't play with her dolls if u won't let her" and "i think she's doing this because she's not having fun anymore" so she's obviously abandoning the girls and what she told the cops is so close to the actual truth it'd be hard for them to see which is true and which isn't cause Spencer did confront Alison that night but not in her house in the backyard a few feet difference in Alisons story and then it's true Spencer dropped her pills and begged Alison not to tell and that she'd do whatever Alison asked even offering to get on her knees and beg so that part of what Alison said is true Alison did discover Spencer's drug habit and Spencer did offer to do whatever Alison asked in a way so i think that's how she pulled it off cause they never discussed what she was willing to do but that's probably how she pulled it off she changed just the tiniest things in her story so the majority was true but the tiny details weren't and lead the cops towards Spencer and i have to say Mona dying while Spencers in jail will make Spencer look pretty good again seeing as how she couldn't have done it and it won't look good for Alison since Hanna told Mona's mom that Mona and all of the girls were afraid of Alison and that they weren't her friends anymore that will work in the girls favor especially since Spencer was there being friendly with Mona in front of her mom and Hanna sorta lived at that house and her and Mona's mom have this connection like Mona's mom is Hanna's more sweet more affectionate mom whereas Ashley is her birth mom and she's more trying to keep Hanna from messing up her life too badly with drinking and other such things Ashleys more the bad cop and Mona's mom is more the i'll give u cookies and we'll have tea and just talk and connect shes more homey at least that's the feeling i got from her but yeah them clearly showing Mona's mom that they rn't on Alisons side and they r on Mona's will end up helping them but yeah they moved on from Alison killing Bethany way to easily Tanner seems smarter the Holbrook she seems to get gut feelings and keeps them kinda on the downlow whereas Holbrook confronts more i think Tanner is smarter she's biding her time collecting all the info before she tries a conclusion and Holbrook confronts and ppl clam up that's just what i see when i watch them
