Hey guys, Steph from The Edge 30 here... OK PLL fans! I’ve got an AD theory and I am 99.9% sure I’ve naaaaailed it!
I’ve been telling all my fellow PLL viewing friends my theory for the last few weeks. But with the 2-hour finale fast approaching which we’ve been promised will reveal AD’s identity and answer all our hundreds of unanswered questions, I thought I’d write it down (so I can brag about getting it right after the reveal).
SPENCER IS AD AND DOESN’T KNOW SHE IS AD BECAUSE SHE HAS DISSOCIATIVE IDENTITY DISORDER/SPLIT PERSONALITY DISORDER
I originally thought AD was Spencer’s mysterious long-lost twin. It would pay homage to the books where Ali had a secret twin. And it would make sense after Spencer found out that Mary Drake (an identical twin herself) is her biological mother. It is hereditary isn’t it?
When Mrs. Hastings was telling the story about how they took Spencer home from the hospital, she said after 5 minutes of being born, you were heading home with us. WELL… in that time it is quite possible that Mary didn’t know she was having twins (I’ve heard of that I think) and she popped out another one.
I reckon after she was born, she stayed with Mary in Radley (they have that room for babies right?) and then was released to go to school. I think she went to a school with Sara Harvey. Maybe her name is Avery. Remember when we found out that a girl called Sara Harvey went missing the same night as Ali, we met her friends? We never met Avery! We heard about her. Maybe AD is Avery Drake. And we never met her then because she is SPENCER’S IDENTIAL TWIN!
But then……… last week’s episode changed it all. We see Spencer walk into Toby’s cabin. She’s acting really strange. Totally not herself. Credit to Troian Bellisario. She’s such a brilliant actress. Toby even says “that’s not the Spencer I know” after she says something out of character. I was like YEP COZ ITS HER TWIN YOU SILLY MAN HOW CAN YOU NOT TELL!
But while they start to make out (wtf Toby man, your wife like JUST died) he sees her scar that she got when she was shot! The camera closes in on it. The director WANTS us to notice this. This proves that this IS Spencer. At least, her physical body.
SHE HAS SPLIT PERSONALITY AND DOESN’T EVEN KNOW THAT SHE IS AD AS WELL!
Over the last few weeks the cast members have been doing plenty of interviews. They each say they love the ending and it’s a twist they didn’t see coming. This would be a BLOODY GOOD TWIST! We all deep down want it to be one of the girls. Also cast members have said when asked ‘do we know who A is’ they say cagey answers. Stuff like we know them but don’t know knoooow them. Or we’ve ‘seen them before’. If you think about my theory, these answers totally fit!
Anyway, that’s my theory written down. Let me know yours! 2 MORE WEEKS EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!
