"Pretty Little Liars" fandom is its own special kind of hell heaven can someone please help us.
After being promised a #summerofanswers as the show prepares to time jump midseason, we've gotten what's more like a summer of once in a while an answer, but more often some additional questions about Lesli Stone, who we didn't really care about besides her cool glasses, and then some answers about her that don't really get us any closer to solving the A mystery.
But with only four episodes left until the break, all that frustration should soon be over, right? I. Marlene King has promised that Charlies DiLaurentis is indeed A, and that by the end of the summer we'll have answers to all our questions, including the identities of Black Widow and Red Coat. That would allow the show to have a nice, clean break and reboot into the future with a new mystery starting next year.
Unfortunately, that may not be the case. Because while Charles is undoubtedly "Big A" -- aka the person who took the game over from Mona back in the day -- it turns out there may also be an additional ... "Uber A."
Release scream here.
What does this mean? Basically just that there could be another A out there, maybe operating even above Charles. When asked about the possibility in interviews surrounding the "Big A" reveal earlier this year, King gave neither explicit confirmation or denial.
“I’m not going to tell you just yet because that might ruin it down the line," King told EW in March. "I’m not going to comment on Uber ‘A.’”
The non-answer has driven many "PLL" fans to speculate that there is an Uber A involved in the show's web of lies, and to develop a variety of theories as to who that might be. Some have hypothesized it could be Jenna, others Mike, and others, of course, Aria.
While we don't at this point care to guess who this potentially existent Uber A could be, we are a bit worried that the finale will wrap up questions pertaining to Charles, but leave certain questions unanswered, chalked up to the Uber A mystery. This scenario would leave us, to put it simply, mad.
Hopefully, if Uber A does exist, it just means A in some form will return after the time jump -- because honestly how could "Pretty Little Liars" even go on without A in some form? All we're asking is that post-reboot A launch a whole new set of infuriating questions -- instead of dragging out lingering old ones.
