The identity of A.D. is the biggest mystery on ‘Pretty Little Liars’ right now. Who is this dangerous foe? Well, there are some pretty amazing and jaw-dropping theories going around, and we’ve rounded up 5 that will make you question everything.
*Spencer’s twin is A.D. Tumblr user The Outlast proposes that Uber A/A.D. is two people — Spencer’s long lost twin and Wren. Spencer’s twin and Bethany Young are the same person, the theory states. Mary Drake gave birth to twins, and one was adopted by the Hastings and the other was later adopted by the Young family and sent to Radley. “The show is coming in full circle,” The Outlast writes. “She killed Jessica, Charlotte, Sara Harvey, etc. Uber A and Charlotte’s killer ARE the same person. She is not here to avenge anyone’s death like they want us to believe. She’s here for revenge for having her life ruined.” This actually makes a whole lot of sense, especially after that weird scene between Ezra, Wren, and “Spencer” at the airport.
*Wren is A.D. Wren is just too sketchy not to be involved in this whole mess. No matter what, Wren just never seems to go away. He’s worked at Radley, making him easily accessible to Mona, Charlotte, Bethany Young, and even Mary Drake. He’s got a very close relationship with Spencer. The fact that Elliott Rollins had a British accent couldn’t have been a coincidence. Wren is all connected somehow. If Wren isn’t A.D., then he’s definitely working with A.D. Maybe that scene at the airport was Wren having a convo with Spencer’s twin about their next move.
*Andrew is A.D. Reddit user katriel0413 believes that Andrew Campbell is actually Andrew Drake. Not only was Andrew adopted, but one of A’s surveillance rooms was at the Campbell farm. Andrew hasn’t been seen or heard of in a while, and he wouldn’t have been introduced for nothing. Maybe he’s been running the show and is now avenging his sister’s death.
*Melissa is A.D. Like Wren, Melissa’s always been shady. Reddit user katriel0413 also gives several reasons why Melissa could be Uber A. “The first time we saw Uber A in action was in 6×13, ordering uniforms. 6×13 was also the first time we saw Melissa,” the fan writes. “Then in 6×14 we saw Uber A in the old bellman disguise. Uber A’s next appearance was in 6×17 as the cleaning lady. Guess what? ‘Coincidentally,’ that was also Melissa’s next appearance. Also, Uber A being in disguises in plain sight means that it’s someone the Liars know & not someone that can just go lurking around unbeknownst to them.”
*Mona is A.D. Then again, it wouldn’t surprise any of us if Mona is A.D. Maybe she never stopped being A. Maybe she’s just been playing the Liars this whole time. After all, Ali Dee was the alter ego of Mona Vanderwaal. PLL fan ShadowLian proposes this plausible theory: “Mona seems so normal to us, but what if she never truly got better? What if she is still very much obsessed with the game, very much mentally damaged? So she never feared for her reputation. That was just her excuse for wanting to see Charlotte or get close to her. What she actually wanted, was to get Charlotte to play the game again. So that’s why she spoke in favor of her release and wanted to meet her the first night she was out. So when Charlotte was killed, Mona decided to find out who did this to her potential partner in crime and started being A.D.”
