Tonight’s episode of Pretty Little Liars was full of reveals about the new A, aka B aka Evil emoji face that has started harassing our liars back in Rosewood.
Here’s what we know so far.
1. S/he wants the murder solved
After tonight’s episode, it seems the new big bad isn’t CeCe’s killer but rather someone who desperately wants the murder solved no matter the cost.
2. S/he has a lot in common with the Original A
Mona had a thing for trying to run people down in cars, too. Remember back in Season 1?
3. Though s/he is apparently worse than Original A and Uber A
We keep hearing from the show that this new villain is bigger and badder than we’ve ever seen. So far, though, s/he seems pretty on par with what we’re used to: lots of big threats and not a lot of delivery. Of course, it’s only been a few episodes so… knock on wood.
4. There is no price too high
Clearly, after Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) terrifying encounter in the woods, it’s clear the new big bad isn’t afraid to get bloody if it means getting answers.
5. S/he isn’t too tech savvy
Caleb might have an edge in this game this time around. If that’s the case, can he just hack the big, bad’s computer already, get an IP address and solve this problem?
6. S/he might be another twin
Showrunner I. Marlene King confirmed “there is a twin” this season, and we will be meeting this person “soon. Within a few episodes.” But will we know them when we meet them or will it be a case of mistaken identity?
7. S/he might actually be two people
After tonight’s episode, it seems very possible there are two big bads this time around. One person wants the murder solved. And then there’s the murderer who wants to stay hidden. And somehow, the liars are at the center of that chess match.
8. S/he controls Emily’s eggs
I mean, I don’t know what Emoji A is planning on doing with Emily’s eggs, but this is one storyline that we’re OK not getting too detailed with. It’s just weird.
9. S/he is probably someone we already know
And I’m totally voting Ali since I think she has a huge motive for wanting this murder solved. Plus, who else really liked CeCe enough to kill for her?
10. S/he is not Ezra
He was the first suspect, so naturally, he doesn’t make the cut. Plus, he’s too drunk lately to pull off stealing anyone’s eggs let alone sending a coherent tweet.
11. Sara Harvey has more about the big bad than she’s letting on
This one is kind of a no-brainer at this point. She’s like this season’s Alison, always around but hiding in the shadows with the keys to answering all of our questions.
12. S/he probably won’t be revealed in Season 7
Even though Season 7 is reportedly the last for Pretty Little Liars on Freeform, King reportedly told MTV that she has ideas to keep the story alive, including a movie. That means the Evil Emoji mystery could live on for just as long as Uber A.
