A theories → Maya St. Germain
1x1- Pilot: Just a year after Alison went missing, the DiLaurentis family move out, and new girl Maya St. Germain and her family (who we never actually see) move in. Not long after they move in, a body turns up in the backyard of the DiLaurentis family home.
1x2- The Jenna Thing: Spencer meets Maya for the first time whilst practicing in her backyard. Spencer instantly knows who she is an where she lives, and Maya responds to the awkward silence with “New girl moved into dead girl’s house”. Emily and Spencer are both shocked at this response, but later on, Aria receives an A message based upon “dead girl”. This could be a coincidence, but it seems everything A does is just one big coincidence.
2x6- Never Letting Go: In this episode, A buys a pair of boots. Before choosing the ones A eventually wants to buy, there’s great focus on a pair A is looking at before the decision is finally made.
2x12- Over My Dead Body: Whilst Emily and Maya are talking in Hanna’s bedroom, Hanna points out Maya’s shoes, asking if they’re “this season”. The boots Maya is wearing are identical to the ones A was looking at for a while before purchasing a different pair. Maybe A bought both.
2x11- I Must Confess: Maya was sent away to a rehabilitation camp in season 1 after Emily’s mom found out she’d been smoking weed. When Maya went away, so did her family, mysteriously. Jason DiLaurentis moved back into the house and began “renovating”. It was no secret Jason was hiding something, or someone, in that house with windows covered in newspaper.
2x12- Over My Dead Body: Jason is seen taking down the newspaper on his windows, by Spencer and Toby. This is the day after Maya had seen Emily and everyone knew she was back.
omg the last one is just plain genius.
… have you completely erased me from your memory?
