With Alison and Jason demanding concrete answers, Papa DiLaurentis was forced to open up his
Poll: What Is Sara’s Real Connection to Charles?
If Alison’s dad is to be believed — pardon my skepticism, but this ain’t my first day in Rosewood — Charles was the eldest DiLaurentis, born 15 months before Jason. He exhibited troubling symptoms at a young age, and by the time Alison turned one, he was “too dangerous” for her to be around. (Example: Mr. D caught him trying to drown Alison in the bathtub.) Charles was then shipped off to Radley, where he committed suicide at the age of 16. So… no happily-ever-after there.
As for why no one in Rosewood has any memory of Charles’ existence, the DiLaurentis clan apparently moved to the troubled town after he’d already been committed. At the time of his death, Mr. D was out of the country, so Mrs. D had him cremated; there was no funeral. I believe Hanna’s response best sums up my thoughts about this convenient explanation: “No body, no grave, no proof.”
Feature Pits the Girls Against Each Other in a Battle of Snark
When the girls discovered that Charles had only been visited by Alison’s aunt Carol during his Radley stint, Jason conveniently remembered that he tried to stay at Carol’s house while recovering from his fall down the elevator shaft (which we’re now apparently allowed to address again). When he got there, he was surprised to see his own mother, who claimed there was no one else in the house — despite there
being someone else there. And since the girls were unable to find any records of Charles’ death, we have to ask: Could he have been alive, and hiding out with Mama D’s help, all this time?
HIGH TIMES | Because pills are so Season 4, Spencer is turning to a slightly greener substance to help ease her Charles-induced nightmares. (And can you blame her? If I was having flashbacks to my kidnapping, during which I woke up covered in a stranger’s blood, you can bet your doll collection I’d be smoking myself into a delightful stupor.) Ezra did his best to stop Spencer from nomming a batch of his waitress’ special brownies, but Spencer wasn’t exactly in the mood for an after-school lecture — and I can’t say I was, either. Bring on #StonedSpencer!
SWIMFAN | My Sara-is-Charles theory is starting to look pretty thin right about now, but fortunately for my ego, my other theory — about Sara and Emily getting their flirt on — appears to be proceeding as predicted. They even shared a moonlight dip, very reminiscent of Emily and Paige’s synchronized night swim from Season 3. Should we start taking bets on when one of the girls will make a first move? (I’m choosing to ignore the potential weirdness with Sara on the roof, but only because I
‘WE [ARE] ON A BREAK!’ | But as one Rosewood couple is coming together, another is quickly being torn apart. Yes, friends, Hanna officially told Caleb she needs some “space” after learning that he’d placed a tracker on her car, the latest in a series of overprotective moves that left her feeling suffocated. If I may speak directly to Hanna for a moment… Girl, what are you
? I know Charles put you through hell, but do you really think kicking
out of bed will help? I mean. I just. Please reconsider.
PICTURE THIS | In addition to learning the twisted origin of Aria’s new haircut — Charles apparently chopped it off, Jan Brady-style, after she refused to color it — we also saw the origin of a potential new relationship. Aria thought she’d suffocate in the darkroom after Charles/”A” locked her inside, but in true
fashion, a handsome stranger named Clark showed up just in time to save the day. (Disclaimer: I know I’m guilty of immediately thrusting characters into romantic connections, but with this show, I think I’ve earned that right.)
Do you have any new theories about Charles, Sara or A-nything else after this week’s episode? Drop ’em in a comment below.
This whole Charles is A/Charles is not A plot is so annoying and stupid. If this show is trying to convince us that for the past 5 seasons Allison’s “dead” brother or someone he knew at Radley was A and the mastermind behind everything that happened they’ve done an extremely poor job. The entire A storyline should have ended back in the 2nd or 3rd season and they should have introduced a new mystery. I bet in the series finale we’ll still not know officially who this A. They’ve dragged this nonsense out to long now that any revelation is probably going to be underwhelming.
Also, I get the basic premise of the show with the girls being liars and constantly lying, but just once I wish they’d tell the truth. They never learn. It’s like deja vu all the time. They think they’re little detectives and can figure things out on their own and they always get screwed in the end. Like Hannah withholding from Caleb. I get the part about feeling smothered. Yeah she needs her space, but after all they’ve been through the girls once again convince her to lie about something.
I’m also tired of the lying, especially between Caleb and Hanna. They’ve been through it all before.
She doesn’t tell Caleb not bc she needs space but bc of A’s last threat. Open their mouths and someone dies. She’s protecting him. She wants him to know everything.
Ok so the Di Laurentis family moved to rosewood after Charles was sent to Radley. But Spencers dad and Alison’s mom had an affair way before that and had Jason. So that timeline doesn’t match up. Unless I’m forgetting something.
I think that even though we think they met because they were neighbors, they were together on the board of Radley? Or at least Ali’s mom was on the board and maybe Soencer’s dad was one of the boards lawyers? Something like that. So they could have met/ had an affair from that work.
Or Ali’s dad is lying about the timeline to cover something up.
Or I’m completely wrong because I can’t keep any of the plot straight. All is possible.
They met before they moved to rosewood. Watch Season 2 episode 20. He explains it.
I still think Charles is alive, despite them founding the grave. There was obviously somebody in the house with Mrs. D, the reason why she wouldn’t let Jason stay not for the grave. Why would Mrs. D bury Charles in Aunt Carol’s backyard if somebody could easily see it. It just doesn’t make sense, because Charles “allegedly” killed him self when he was 16, but the girls said Aunt Carol died when they was in the 10th grade and Charles is way older, so that would mean Aunt Carol was still living in that house when Mrs. D supposedly buried him. Also, I believe Charles is the one that hit Alison in the back of her head back in season 1 when Mrs. D witnessed it and tried to bury her alive. Spencer said it herself the only way Mrs. D would protect her daughter’s attacker is if it was another one of her kid , so that made them all think it was Jason but then he was cleared because he was past out drunk. So yes I believe it was Charles that did that to Alison , I mean come on her father even said he tried to drown her in a hot water bathtub when she was baby , yet Mrs. D still wanted to be close to him when they sent him to Radley ,,, causing them to move to Rosewood. Also if Charles was really dead , why wouldn’t Mrs. D let her husband come to the funeral or burial or cremation to say his final goodbye if he was supposedly dead. Charles probably killed Mrs. D after she told him she couldn’t protect him anymore.
Maybe it’s aunt Carol buried in the back yard
And if Charles really is dead then the only other scenario I can think of is that somebody that was really close to Charles in Radley is coming back to avenge his death. But that still wouldn’t make sense , why come after the girls and not just the Dilaurentis family.
I’m so confused?!? So, Mona was definitely A in the first 2 seasons. I’ve got that down. It was said that Toby joined the “A-team” in season 3 to protect spencer. Did he work with Mona and the real A? Or did he only work with Mona? If A was Mona in the first 2 seasons, and was Toby and Mona in the 3rd, where the heck has this new A been? Its suspicious that the “new” A suddenly showed up right after Mona stopped being A. Has the real A been tormenting the girls since season 1, helping Mona in the process? Does Mona actually know who A is? I think Charles Dilaurentis might be A. But who the heck is this Sara Harvey girl?!? She has literally come out of no where. She doesn’t seem to be connected to any character that has been introduced in the series so far. She has a similar story to that of Bethany young (runaway/ Blonde hair). Did A kidnap her just because she had blonde hair? I don’t think so. I think she is working with A/Charles. How long did it take A to create his perfect doll house. It looks like everything is underground, except for the area above ground, surrounded by electrical fence, in the middle of the forest. It would be crazy expensive to make the doll house, so A has to be someone with a lot of money. Since Sara Harvey has been in the doll house for 2 years, A must have had his doll house ready before then. That means that A has been stalking the girls for a long time. Also it is suspicious that no city or state officials noticed the drilling or construction of the doll house. Kenneth Dilaurentis does own a construction company, which could explain why no one ever questioned the construction of the doll house. Anyway, here is my response to this confusing/amazing show. Any response to my questions would be great!
If Charles is dead, then Sarah Harvey is definatley really Bethany Young. But I don’t think he’s dead.
I’d like to know why Hannah is so withdrawn the other three girls if they didn’t do anything to each other. And where the hell is Mona?!
true that! everyone seems to ‘protect’ the girls and wants to speak to them about what happened but no one seems to care about mona? what happened to her? it’s creepy
First off, I agree in saying that they’ve dragged this show on too much. I’m not suprised because it is Hollywood. Cha-Ching Cha-Ching. I do have a theory though, a strange theory. After looking at each character throughout the seasons I think that Head A could be Kenneth Dilaurentis. He isn’t a character that is shown very much in the show. Which could lower the predictions of him being A. He also is “traveling” most of the time. This could be because of work related business. I think that the boy shown in the clip was Charles. I believe that Charles believes he was a girl inside (transgender) and Mr. D did not approve. This would explain why Mrs. Dilaurentis had two dresses. I think that Charles was jealous of Alison because she could be a girl and he/she couldn’t. Charles trying to kill Alison was the perfect way in getting him kicked out of the family. Maybe the Dilaurentis put Charles up for adoption and Charles’s new family aloud him to have surgery and turn himself into Bethany (young). Because of her past, Bethany is put in Radley’s. Maybe Mr and Mrs D had something to do with Bethany’s murder. Maybe Mrs D was going to tell someone and Mr D killed her before she could say anything. I think that there is a connection between where Bethany’s and Mrs D bodies were buried. They were both buried in the Hastings yard. This could be because Mr D found out about the affair between mrs d and mr Hastings. Also, spencer, when face to face with A, said A felt familiar. Or maybe Charles is still alive and torturing the girls because he is jealous of them all. It’s a hard mystery to solve! This theory is way out there and doesn’t answer all the questions, but I don’t think Mr. d should be ruled out.
I believe that this new girl and Charles (A) are working together. She ran away to be with him. They probably met at Radley. Shes been helping Charles all along. Thats how Charles was able to use Emily’s phone to record her sleeping. That is why shes suddenly becoming so relevant. Think about it…
So after what happened with Mona and Alison the writers really think that we would belive that Charles is dead? Come on…
Last nights episode has really thrown a spanner in the works. At the end of season 5 we were all convinced that Charles was A. But Charles is apparently dead? Mrs D has as many secrets as Alison had so I don’t know what to believe anymore and I’ve given up on trying to find out who A really is because I know I will just get it wrong.
Also here’s a side note, do you remember back in season 2 or 3 Toby was on the A team and he went to work in Bucks County? Well Charles’ underground dollhouse was in Bucks County. Do you think Tony has met Charles but hasn’t realised? Marlene has said that we have met Charles before so it is somebody we know.
I’ve watched Days of Our Lives for years. Perhaps the DiLaurentis are related to the Dimeras with all the fake deaths, lol.
I assume Mrs. D had Charles fake his death and then buried the coffin in case she asked. Wold also help explain why .
I think Sarah is supposed to get close to Emily, but will fall in love with her which will protect Emily out of love from Charles at the end.
Charles, Clark ?? Maybe Clark is Charles… If he is, the Di Laurentis boys seem to have a thing for Aria…
Maybe! Have you seen some photos of the dollhouse the pll wherever posted? I saw a picture from the dollhouse in a video on youtube and der was a blonde boy and a boy with a darker skin and marlene or someone wrote ‘brothers?’ unter the pic !! this is brilliant
so here’s my theory: pll has this special thing with twins and now i finally know who is the one with a twin-sister: Mrs. DiLaurentis! Carol ist her twin sister, jason didn’t met his mom at carols house, it was carol. The different voice made me think it wasn’t Jessica.
so because only Jessica and Carol were visiting Charles in Redley, Charles has to be connected to Carol in a special way: he is her son!
I don’t know why they were pretending that Charles was Jessicas son (maybe to hide an affair between Mr.D and Carol?) but I know one thing: Charles is definitely not dead! Pll told us that Charles is A and even Mr.D had a wrong information about his death/funeral so I don’t think it’s true.
