PLL Episode 5x08 - ScreAm for Me
Clues from the Episode that Aria is A
The episode begins with the girls singing in choir practice while Aiison is questioned by the police about her relationship with Shana. When Ali returns she receives and A message on her sheet music. All of the A notes are circled and the note taunts "Glad to hear you singing. Last Time you were all choked up. -A" This A note written or planted right then during class pretty much points to one of the girls being A. This is a handwritten note and all of the girls were there. One of them is A, and you know who we think it is...
When Aria blows off a dress fitting with her mom, Ella is furious. She wants to know if Aria keeps blowing her off because she is concerned or not happy about Ella getting married. Aria apologizes and tells her that she just has a lot going on. They try to reschedule once again. Does Aria have an issue with the upcoming wedding? Ella must sense a vibe from her and Aria has seen very distant and disinterested in everything to do with the wedding. Maybe she doesn't know how to tell her mom her concerns, like in season 1 when she struggled with being able to tell her mom about Byron's affair and was actually taken off the hook by A, who broke the news for Aria.
When Aria is told that her mom's fiance, Zach, actually hit on Hanna last night who was probably drunk at the time, Aria is angry at Hanna and doesn't want to deal with the story. She tears Hanna down and leaves her crushed.
Later at the Montgomery house, Aria, Ella and Zach are together and Ella asks Aria if she is going to stay to watch the movie. Aria says no but then changes her mind and sits on the couch leaving room for Zach to either sit by her mom or by her. She notices that Zach chooses to sit next to her. Aria was obviously testing Zach here. Aria seems to have a gut feeling that Hanna is right and this guy is not right for her mom and this confirms it for her. Wonder if A will get involved and save her mother from marrying Zach for her? Maybe the episode title Scream for Me if Aria wanting Hanna to scream to her mother for her to not marry Zach??
In the final scene of the episode we see A find a secret compartment in a desk or something. Not sure where this is, but it could be in Spencer's bedroom.
