PLL Episode 5x07 - The Silence of E Lamb
Clues in this Episode that Aria is A
Aria begins her volunteer work at Radley and notice that she is once again wearing a black and white, prison striped shirt. Aria is also wearing a name tag which she herself wrote her name on. We have mentioned Aria and A having the same handwriting in previous episodes. but we see it hear again on her nametag. Aria writes her As exactly like A.
Eddie Lamb immediately notices Aria and seems to know her. Eddie asks Aria about how he knows her and that he has seen her around Radley before. Aria has been to Radley before to visit both Mona and Spencer so why doesn't she just tell Eddie that instead of lie and tell him that she hasn't been to Radley and he must be mistaken about thinking he knows her. This is a clue that Aria is hiding something about Radley. We think Aria has spent time at Radly as a patient in the past and maybe that is why she does not want Eddie to recognize her.
Aria seems pretty comfortable at Radley too and seems to know her way around pretty good. We see her sneaking around corners and she easily finds Bethany Young's old room. Bethany's former crazy roommate, Rhonda, seems to sort of recognize Aria too and does not like Aria at all. she class Aria a thief for having Bethany's drawing.
Aria is able to sneak into Rhonda/Bethany's room and find Bethany's old sketch book. Later we are able to see some of the drawings inside. They seem to get darker and darker over time as Bethany's apparent anger toward Mrs. DiLaurentis grew stronger.
One of the drawings in particular caught our eye because it looked like something we had seen before. The drawing of the blonde girl looking in the mirror like very similar to the scene of Aria looking in the mirror. In fact, this scene with Aria wearing the same dress while looking in the mirror was shown twice and we related it to Marlene King's tweet that A would first appear in the pilot episode and reappear in episode 3x1. We see these scenes and the resemblence of the painting to the scene to be a clue that Aria is A.
As Aria is leaving Radley with Bethany's sketchbook visibly in her bag, she runs into Eddie Lamb again. He is suspicious of Aria and wonders why she is still here at Radley so late. He also notices the stolen sketchbook in her bag. When Aria leaves, Eddie calls Ezra and asks him to meet with him. At the end othe episode we find out that Ezra went to meet Eddie, but he never showed up. This brings us to our episode title clue...
EPISODE TITLE - the title of this episode is The Silence of E Lamb. This is very fitting because what basically happens is that E Lamb first sends clues to Ezra which Aria immedicately recognizes, then he recognizes Aria at Radley. After recognizing Aria and seeing that she was behaving suspiciously, Eddie Lamb mysteriously disappears and leaves the job that he has been working at for at least the past four years. Hmmm... very suspicious. E Lamb is a threat to Aria and is then silenced. I hope your are finally beginning to see a theme here ....
