I don't have stats, but I put money on a lot of America watches The Walking Dead, it is still airing right? Not everyone likes it, but many are fans.
If TWD does anything, it shows us they have no fear of killing off characters. I mean, it is an apocalypse, people need to die in order for it to seem real. Unfortunately for the fans, our favorites sometimes are the fallen.
With tonight being a season finale, an hour and a half long, it is guaranteed to show up and bring everything. I predict at least one major death, new trials for the group, and many many walkers.
After a major death, we gasp, yell, cry, and swear we will never watch again. Alas, we continue to watch. So why do we keep coming back for more?
We love it.
It's a great show, we've watched from the beginning. We are flat out dedicated fans who will watch no matter what. We may hate decisions, but we move on as the characters do.
Deaths make for good episodes.
Think about a favorite character dying; did you enjoy the episode? We often end up loving an episode someone we like dies in, even though we hate the death.
We'll find another favorite.
That's just life. We soon start to forget their important role in the show. Someone else will come along and fill the empty apocalyptic void.
We like the show more.
We just happen to love the show enough that a character death will not turn us away for good. We will watch and keep watching because we overall love the show.
We want to know what happens.
We won't know who else dies if we stop. We won't know if they find a cure. Maybe they all die. It's what we have to do to survive, Rick would say that.
Got a secret, can you keep it? For five seasons of Pretty Little Liars now we have been waiting, through all the secrets, lies, and pieces of clues to find out who A really is.
We've watched theories unravel on the show. Mona and Toby are A, but wait they're just helping. Shana or Ezra possibly being A, but one is just a team member and the other researching. Holbrook and Wilden are A. Ali is definitely A. We still don't know!
With the promise of a Big A reveal this Tuesday, everyone is excited and trying to figure out who A is before the show. We are all putting together bits and pieces of information so we can say I told you so!
As I am still so completely lost as to who A really is, here are a top 10 of who I'm narrowing it down to one of them being A. Knowing the show though, I'm probably so off..
Oh and this is no particular order either.
Caleb shows up early in the series as this really smart guy who is great with technology, hmmmm. There is a moment shared where Ali and Caleb have this look between each other. Before that moment, they had "never met" according to the show. Could they have known each other while Ali was on the run. Does he actually have a hatred toward the girls? I HOPE NOT!
We've all thought her to be A. She shows up in town as an old friend of Alis, who we rarely trust, and seems quite shady. She's been on the run after killing Wilden, but has she killed others? Is she just befriending Ali to be closer to everyone. Did she feel left out when Ali was close with the 4 liars? Possible.
The last few episodes, PLL has made Andrew look super creepy. We've seen this before and there's usually nothing about the character that screams A later on. With all the clues lately; he's a pathfinder, he's available 24/7 (except when the guys were being attacked of course), his sudden closeness to Aria, his not caring Mona is dead, him being outside Mona's house. Let's not forget him supplying Spencer with speed. They are stacking him up pretty good and would not be surprised if he was maybe a helper.
Another possibility for what seems like the whole series. Ali's brother, who she once seemed afraid of. He's always gone here and there. Didn't he fall down an elevator shaft then disappear from the hospital? Accused Ali of murder, but took it back. Slept with Hanna's mom. He has motive, we can't roll him out.
Yes Toby came out to be just helping A to help keep Spencer safe, but are we sure? Since when does A just let one of the girl's bfs, or current ex, be part of the team. That's a little risky and A is good. Toby also became a cop, maybe to get a little insider about the cases, for A. What about when Toby "died" for that little bit? He's Jenna's brother and she doesn't really like the liars. He also had a moment or two with Ali pre-disappearance.
Do we know that she's dead? That whole night is a blur for me as much as it is everyone else. There's some sketchy stuff between Ali, her mom, and Bethany. Mrs. D was visiting Bethany a lot and apparently did something to piss her and draw pictures with her dying in them. There was the dream where Ali found two dresses and constantly lied to her father about the secret other girl. As people want to say twin theory, I say Bethany. Also, she's psycho!
She hated Alison. Didn't care for Emily until they dated, why? She became part of the I hate Ali club. She moved away, which I'm not seeing that. Emily told her a lot, especially when Paige wrote to the police that Ali was alive, to save her own ass? I never cared for Paige and I'd be fine if she was the ring leader.
Ugh I hate Tanner. She seems just as bad as the other cops in Rosewood. She has always been after the girls, prying into everything. I don't feel the need to explain this one, she is just too scary bad cop for me. Her reasons? I have no idea, suffered in her teenage years?
Again, do we know that she is dead? This girl just happens to move into Ali's old house, where I'm sure Ali hid so many things. She just loves Emily, gotta have an insider. She goes away and comes back. She was being pretty sneaky there for a while. Her sleeping pills were used on Emily, really? Maya could have met Ali a long time ago, because Ali knows everyone, and she wants revenge. So she fakes her death as Ali did and she's A!
10. Total random person surprise.
This is most likely, I think. They are gonna hit us hard and we're gonna be shocked. But I would think we would be sad too? So someone we know and trust, that's who A is. We are gonna be heart broken, there's no way they'd have it any other way.
As other theories have mentioned, Aria is A. Sure I can see why all these people think that and they have evidence. It's just hard for me to see them actually making it one of the girls, except maybe Ali, but why would she put herself in jail?
The parents and siblings of the girls have always occurred to me. They have shown some of them in a dark light and make you think the worst. Again, I can't see the story for this though. Why would they, minus Jason, go after their own family?
So many theories. So many candidates. I guess we will just have to wait and cry together when we find out Tuesday!
