PLL Episode 1x09 - The Perfect Storm
Clues from the Episode that Aria is A
In this episode, Ella Montgomery is at school on a saturday to proctor the SAT exam, which may or may not take place due to the impending hurricane. Aria is awkward with her mom as she is still upset about her mother's decision to move out. Aria is also not really on speaking terms with Ezra either. Ella and Ezra are talking and Ella tells Ezra that Aria is a very strong person and when "she wants to shut you out, you could die of frost bite." That is interesting because we have not seen that side of Aria up to this point. That is a side of Aria that seems alot like A would be. This is a clue that there is side to Aria that we don't know.
Wilden shows up at the school which annoys Veronica Hastings who is still there from dropping the girls off. Wilden is there to ask questions because the memorial bench for Alison had been destroyed. Emily is question about it due to her muddy shoes and shortly after receives an A message directing her to check the library for a clue in the book Great Expectations. When Emily finds the book it has a copy of the letter she sent to Alison right before she disappeared. Emily is then terrorized by someone throwing books at her. The letter to Alison was not a nice letter, Emily's feelings had been hurt by Alison who teased Emily and led her to believe Ali might feel the same way, only to crush her.
Obviously someone at the school that day is A due to the planted letter and the book throwing. However, everyone seems to be accounted for during the library A game, well everyone except Aria that is. The camera shows us what everyone else is doing except Aria. Very possible that she followed Emily into the library to see her reaction to finding the letter and then to scare her with teh book throwing. When Emily recovers, the letter and her bag are gone.
Then later, Wilden has the letter and begins to question Emily and basically accuses her of killing Alison and destroying her memorial. Emily lets out that she actually had feelings for Alison. After Emily admits her secret, Aria says "Em, I wish I'd known." Hmmm... why does she say this? It's like Aria suddenly feels bad for something, like maybe she feels bad that she gave Wilden the letter and Emily had to be outed that way?
