'Pretty Little Liars' Mystery: Could Ezra Be 'A'?

Tue, March 13, 2012 4:14pm EST by 52 Comments

Who do YOU think ‘A’ is? Entertain my latest theory, then share yours. Together, we can figure this thing out!

Can you believe that one week from today, we’ll all know who “A” is on Pretty Little Liars? That also means we only have six more days to post wacky conspiracy theories about the identity of Rosewood’s textual deviant, so allow me to throw one more out there for good measure: Ezra (Ian Harding)! Yes, that’s right, I’m adding Aria’s (Lucy Hale) forbidden lover to my “A”-dar.

As a friend of mine tweeted, Ezra being revealed as “A” would be “THE best moment on television in 2012,” if only because he seems like the least likely suspect — aside from the four main girls, of course. On a show that’s all about mistrust and betrayals, Ezra being the mastermind behind the girls’ misery would truly be the ultimate cross.

.

So how could I possibly justify such an outrageous claim? Well…

He’s good at keeping secrets: Aria may have blabbed to her friends about her relationship with Ezra, but as far as we know, Ezra never spoke a word of it to anyone — until he decided to do so on his own terms.

Ezra was a prophet in the Bible: Since Ezra is hardly a common name in the 21st century, I figured I’d do a little digging into its origins. It turns out Ezra was the name of a prophet in the Old Testament — and could “A” not be considered Rosewood’s all-knowing, all-seeing prophet?

“Ezra” also means “help” in Hebrew: While “A” has done unspeakably terrible things to the girls, “A” has also helped the girls out in times of trouble — when it was convenient for “A,” of course.

He’s a tall man: This last one might sound like a reach, but remember when Hanna (Ashley Benson) hit “A” with her car on the winter premiere? That was definitely a full-grown man. Trust me, as a semi-grown man, I’m able to identify them.

.

Of course, Ezra is merely the latest person I’ve added to my “A”dar, a list that already includes pretty much every Rosewood resident — minus the four main liars. Ella (Holly Marie Combs), Ashley (Laura Leighton) and Mike (Cody Christian) are also on my short list of surprise “A” suspects.

But who’s on yours? With less than a week until the big reveal, this might be your last time to guess. (Technical glitch: For some reason, Jenna isn’t showing up in the poll for some people. My apologies.)

Marlene said that by end of the summer we’ll know if Ali is alive, not who A is. I dont think Ezra is A. If they reveal who is A, it’ll get pretty dull and this show needs 2 more seasons … at least.
