39 Questions For Charles & 'Pretty Little Liars'

by Christine DiStasio

Are you still reeling from Tuesday night's Pretty Little Liars Big A Reveal? Obviously you don't have to answer that because, if you're the PLL fan that I know you are, you're definitely still trying to process that Charles DiLaurentis is Big A and possibly Jason's twin on PLL. Even though the reveal at the end of Season 5's finale, "Welcome to the Dollhouse," wasn't what we were all expecting or hoping for, every PLL fan is already looking forward to Season 6. Partially because I Marlene King revealed the Pretty Little Liars Season 6 premiere title but mostly because we still have so many questions following the Season 5 finale. Typical Pretty Little Liars, right?

At this point, I have to give props to King for managing to convince us that we're going to get all of the answers when, really, she's just throwing another handful of puzzle pieces at us. Which is why, after the extremely hyped Big A Reveal, PLL fans — myself included — were left feeling less relieved and informed and more ready to rip our hair out trying to piece all of this new information together. So, Charles is A. That's all well and good, but WHO THE HELL IS CHARLES?

Here are 39 questions that Pretty Little Liars' Big A Reveal and Season 5 finale posed (including: What the heck is up with Charles?) that need to be answered in Season 6.

  1. Where is the dollhouse? <img src="http://lovelace-media.imgix.net/uploads/79/39514520-b553-0132-4590-0ebc4eccb42f.gif?w=320"/> Aside from the obvious answer: hell.
  2. Where is Varjack in all of this?
  3. Where is Bethanny in all of this?

  5. Is the Jason we know actually Charles?
  6. Is Andrew good or bad? <img src="http://lovelace-media.imgix.net/uploads/79/8834fc60-b555-0132-9a59-0e01949ad350.gif?w=320"/> He's an effing weirdo either way, but still.

  23. Why did Ali ever think that yellow shirt was a good idea?
  24. Why is A making Ali-Mona prom queen?

  36. Are the apples signifiant?
  37. Is the crest/symbol at the farm significant?
  38. Did Charles hurt Ali? Is that why he was gone? Is that why her elbow doesn't work?
