My considerably long, ‘Ezra is NOT A’, theory.
I think A is Alison’s twin, Courtney — not Ezra.
In the books, Alison has a twin, Courtney, whom no-one in Rosewood knows about and whom she later kills.
First off, it would explain why the girls keep ‘seeing’ Ali even though they’ve confirmed the dead body they found as hers.
Secondly, see those pictures above? Those are from Episode 13, Season 2 — The First Secret
Notice the picture on the wall? It shows Alison, then Jason, then Alison (?) again? It made me curious so I went digging. A friend told me about the plaque.
Beneath the picture is a plaque that supposedly says: “C’est le double du rire et de doubler le sourire et double la peine si vous etes béni avec des jumeaux” or roughly translated as: “This is double the laughter and smiles double and double the trouble if you’re blessed with twins”.
Lends more credibility to my theory.
Anyhoo, the episode is a flashback ep to the Hallowe’en a few days before Alison’s disappearance.
It starts off with Hanna babysitting and she and Alison are carving pumpkins when Ali starts to tell a ‘scary’ story to the little boy. It’s about two little blonde girls, twins, and how they were playing together while waiting for their parents to come home so they could go trick or treating. They get into a fight over a doll and one of the girls grabs a knife and stabs her sister in the chest and how their parents found her smiling as she watched her sister bleeding to death and was subsequently sent away to a home for the criminally insane where she remained until the day before. Alison tells the boy that the girl vowed to come back to Rosewood and kill every kid who dared to go trick-or-treating on Hallowe’en. (Alison then maniacally stabs the butcher’s knife she is holding deep into the pumpkin they are carving on the table).
After the intro, Alison is shown with the girls walking down the street and they are invited to Noel Khan’s Hallowe’en party. When the girls walk by an abandoned house, they get creeped out, not noticing the van parked in front of it that says Radley Sanitarium.
Emily meets Toby, who is unpacking a moving truck. He tells her that his Dad got remarried again and that his step-mom and step-sister are moving in and that his new sister is the type that gets whatever she wants.
Later, Jason gives a box to Alison that he found on the front porch addressed to her. Inside is a burlap voodoo doll with a note that says “It’s my turn to torture you”. She goes to a vent in her bedroom and hides the note inside the head of a doll. The doll the little girls are playing with in the beginning of the episode, looks like the exact same doll that Ali tucks the note into.
At the party, Spencer and Alison have a tense moment when Ali hands her a handful of ballots from the school election that Spencer won earlier in the day. Spencer tosses them into a firepit on the porch.
Now, we all know that Spencer was the last Liar to see Alison alive. We know they argued, but not really about what.
Now, the parallel to all of the above is this: the books.
In the books, Alison has a twin named Courtney. Courtney is sweet and caring and Alison is manipulative and mean. Ali is jealous because Courtney is favoured by everyone and so Ali plots to get rid of her. She paints Courtney as being a paranoid and dangerous and schizophrenic and so the DiLaurentis parents send Courtney away to a sanitarium — Radley.
The DiLaurentis’es move to Rosewood to be closer to her, and occasionally got to bring Courtney home for a weekend, but because appearances were important to the family, Courtney was never allowed outside because her parents pretended they only had 2 children — Alison and Jason.
After 3 years, Radley was closing down and Ali panicked about Courtney coming home and claimed that Courtney threatened to kill her so they began looking into an institution in Delaware.
Before they could switch her over to the new institution, Courtney steals Ali’s initial ring and she and Ali have a huge fight which the Liars (Spencer, Aria, Emily, Hanna) only partly witness (the part where the real Alison is viciously screaming and yelling at someone) and Courtney with Ali’s ring pretends to be Alison and the Liars corroborate that ‘Alison was being abusive and vicious to someone’ and Mrs. DiLaurentis leaves with her, taking her to Delaware thinking it was Courtney.
Courtney continuing to pretend to be Alison, reads Ali’s diary to help her ‘become more like Alison’. Throughout 6th and 7th grade her sweeter personality morphed more into Ali’s manipulative and meaner one. At the end of their 7th grade year, Courtney finds out that Spencer has a crush on Ian, her older sister Melissa’s boyfriend and a senior in high school. Courtney plots to set up a scenario that would keep Spencer loyal to her with a secret, so she pretends to like Ian and tells him that she’ll kiss him if he kisses Spencer first. Ian kisses Spencer, and Courtney is smug about her new secret over Spencer. A few days later, the girls have a sleepover in Spencer’s barn apartment. Alison also happened to be home for a visit and sneaks out of the house to spy on Courtney and her friends (Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily). That night, Courtney and Spencer are arguing fiercely and Spencer shoves Courtney who trips and falls to the ground. Courtney then lies to Spencer saying that she is dating Ian and she had to bribe Ian to kiss Spencer. While they are arguing, Courtney catches Alison spying and suddenly cuts off the argument and takes off into the woods.
The sisters confront each other in the DiLaurentis backyard and begin fighting and wrestling on the ground. Then Ian shows up as Courtney tells Alison that she just wants to be friends again and Alison, surprised, lets go of Courtney who falls into the hole that was dug for the gazebo being built before she can see who shows up. Courtney feels something sharp in the back of her head and neck and hears a cracking sound. She struggles not to lose consciousness and tries to see who Alison is talking to but she can’t move. She eventually recognizes Ian’s voice but before she can say anything, Ian and Alison begin shoving dirt into the hole to cover up her body, not aware that she was still alive and Courtney, despite the head and neck injuries, dies of suffocation.
Before the fight with Courtney, Alison planned to do one of two things: either get Courtney to switch places with her and go back to Delaware, or she was going to kill Courtney and and replace her anyway.
After burying Courtney, Ali sneaks into her house and is caught by her parents and they think she’s Courtney. She corrects them and then goes upstairs to bed. In the morning, she is questioned about Courtney’s whereabouts and they notice that Alison is not wearing her A-ring. Alison panics because she forgot to get her ring back from Courtney before killing her and her parents freak out thinking that Alison is really Courtney and that she did something horrible to her sister and they send her back to the institution in Delaware. As they are driving away, Alison sees the Liars and blames them for her being mistaken as Courtney a few years before and vows to get revenge on them, and thus the idea of “A” is born.
Now, on TV, the mid-season finale showed Ezra looking around A’s lair. To me, it doesn’t look like anything is familiar to him. He’s looking around like he’s unsure of what he’s looking at. Redcoat has always been a female — if it wasn’t the blonde hair poking out, it was her slender shape. Not to say that the A-team always wore the red coats because the black hoodie line is still very much in fashion. Again, it still never struck me as Ezra. The shapes have always been wrong.
Hoodie has always either been short and petite, or tall and lean and Ezra, though definitely not fat, isn’t exactly lean. His build is broader across the shoulders—more solid-looking. The only ones whose builds are comparable to Ezra are Noel and Jason.
I think A set it up so that Ezra either followed Aria, or was sent to find Aria in the lair and thus finally having to be clued in on her secret.
You all know how the show loves to mess with our heads — first with A being Mona, and then Toby, and now I think they’re doing the same thing with Ezra, so I’m not worried. It’s not Ezra. A is Ali’s twin, come to seek revenge. I’m absolutely sure of it.
Well, not 100% sure…but that’s still enough for me. A is not Ezra, and that’s that.

actually it IS irish, for the rude and unnecessary dumbfuck above. gaelic describes a group of languages spoken by the gaelic people. you wouldn’t say gaelic to describe this language because it’s distinctly different from scottish gaelic, for example. this is irish. the irish speak english because they were colonized, their original language is irish, or gaeilge

“You are your mother’s trueborn son of Lannister.”
"Am I?" the dwarf replied, sardonic. "Do tell my lord father. My mother died birthing me, and he’s never been sure."
"I don’t even know who my mother was," Jon said.
"Some woman, no doubt. Most of them are." He favored Jon with a rueful grin. "Remember this, boy. All dwarfs may be bastards, yet not all bastards need be dwarfs."
And with that he turned and sauntered back into the feast, whistling a tune.
When he opened the door, the light from within threw his shadow clear across the yard, and for just a moment Tyrion Lannister stood tall as a king.”

#Dear @InsidiousSiren — :P Love, Bear
OH MY GOSH. Please help me. I’m looking for these scary stories I used to listen to on a cassette tape as a kid. It was part of some kind of sleepover kit, and included face paint so your friends could make you look scary. And at the end of the scary story, the narrator on the tape would tell you…
#Dear @AberrantMuse — even though you’ve laughed at my bears-tag pain…
LOOK, RACHEL! I FOUND THE BEAR PIC! (@InsidiousSIren) KLAUS DREW BEARS FOR YOU!
