  • In the books, Alison and Courtney are twins, and Alison is jealous of courtney so she pretends to be her and gets her sent to radley. The dilaurentis move to rosewood so no one finds out about that. Eventually Courtney comes back and gets Alison sent to radley making people think Alison is her. When Ali comes back she pushes Courtney into a hole and gets her buried alive. The show is very very similar. The dilaurentis move to rosewood with only one known daughter (Bethany is in radley because Alison sent her there). Alison goes missing and gets killed the same night Bethany escaped. I think that Bethany tried to go back home but Alison hit her on the head and had her buried. When she escapes and goes with Mona, then leaves Mona she goes and kills Alison and runs away. When she comes back her personality is a lot nicer (in the book Courtney is a lot nicer). When Bethany comes back alive as Alison they think the body is Bethany, although they were right it was Alison. Bethany's face is never shown on the show because it is identical to Alison's. The second dress in Alison's Christmas flashback is for Bethany. Mrs. Dilaurentis visited Bethany because she is her daughter. Bethany and Charles were friends because they're siblings.

    • Bethany is one of the equivalents of Courtney.

      Courtney DiLaurentis is split into 3 characters in the tv series:

      Bethany Young(the dead girl and the crazy one)

      Charles DiLaurentis(the third hidden DiLaurentis child)

      Cece Drake(she and Ali switched personality)

      Bethany can't be Ali's twin,she was 17 when she died and Ali was 14/15 and also,the story would be the same of the books.

      The dress of 5x13 is confusing,we don't know if it was for Bethany or Charles(for his doll).

      I think it was for Charles because he had an Ali doll in his room for Christmas's break.

      And also,Bethany was older for that dress :P

    • no. jessica cannot be THAT crazy. send one child to an asylum. that child changes gernder. have another child outside of the marriage. I get that she had another affair but I refuse to think another child.

      I just thought, Jessica was probably being nice to Bethany and asked her to call her aunt Jessie because she wanted Bethany to pretend the incident with Marion never happened. "I'll cover for you if you promise not to say Charles/Charlotte did it". And she probably had that "is her daughter as much of a liar as she is" moment because she found out about the affair Jessica was having with her father. As for the lying daughter, I feel like shes talking about CeCe (now that we know they knew each other)

    • Can someone explain this to me:

      Jason saw Melissa and Charlotte talking the night Bethany was killed. Is this true? Because if so, why were Charlotte, Bethany AND Alison wearing the same yellow top? That can't be right? 

      Jason said he was hallucinating so Melissa had to be talking to Bethany right? BUT WHYY

    • This is a good theory but I doubt that the show would parallel the book too much. If viewers are following both the books and the movies and they see the similarities it could become too obvious to them. Even if Bethany is the equivalent of Courtney, their backstories are porbabbly different and the story will end up playing out differently in the end than the books.

    • Ok this theory just sent a shiver down my spine. I love it! Would love if the show ended up being true to the books, because why would I like Harry Potter for example if the movie producers decided he was evil/dies/ etc... I mean Wren? Really? Ok he's a doctor, so is Archer, a fake one that is, and he loved and knew Charlotte. I think the whole Elliot is not a real doctor was to tell us u don't have to be a doctor on PLL to have access to shit. You don't need to be Lucas and be all high tech, you can have moneh and have people do shit for you that "don't ask any questions" quoting Mona. Rollins had the mask making tools but we all know he's dead.... A has this under control guys, and we all know she blackmails people to do her dirty work ;)

    • I really don't know why people hate the Cece is A reveal. I loved it! I'm gay and I've been struggling w my sexuality/gender for a long time. I always wanted to be myself, hang out w girls, sleepovers, gossip etc. but I was denied that for being in a Muslim country... so I kinda understand Cece's obsession/anger/life is unfair/I love my dolls but won't hurt them type of situation.... especially that she transitioned into Alison. That's what most transgenders do, they transition into their role model characteristic of what a strong woman is... u hear what I'm saying? :P :D

      Well Cece is waaay older than Aly (7 years or so) so I don't see how Aly could be a model to her since she transitioned when Aly was a child. When we first knew about Cece, it looked like CeCe was teaching Aly how to be mean, not the other way around, and how to choose her friends!

    • In S4E15 Ali reveals herself to the liars. The liars go to where “Ali” is buried and Hanna comes up with finding out who is really in Ali’s coffin. Aria asks, “…but the body that was in the box was identified as Ali, how did that happen?” We find out later that Bethany is in the box, so obviously Bethany has to be Ali’s twin because of the DNA test that said it was Ali.

      No, not necessarily. Someone may have added a tooth or something with Ali's DNA to the corpse, or maybe someone identified her wrong on purpose.

    • ^ True. Then,in 4.17 Hanna went to the dentist and figured out that someone may have switched Bethany's and Ali's dental records. But after 6.10 neither Mona or Charlotte had admitted being responsable for the switch. So it was a third enemy, who did before the pilot, AD ?

    • Most logical would be for Bethany and Alison to have the same DNA. It's easy and will make the story go full circle. You identify people with DNA not only by dental records.

      Probably the person who managed to do the switch, also managed to be sure the identification from the Pilot would be made by testing this dental records. The plan was to trick the police.

      Then, in 5x05, the cops finally made a real DNA test, identifying Bethany. Bethany's DNA !

      There is so much we don't know about Bethany. So yes, maybe she was Ali's twin. But I hope she wasn't, I'm done with secret sibling...

    • I'm kinda done with this show.... I agre with you on the police thing but I find it very unlogic for Cece to be able to do that. Or Mona, or anyone except a policeman.

      They can still share the same DNA though, but placing Bethany's DNA on someone's body would be impossible. One possible thing is that the same thing was made twice, meaning the same person made sure this body would be identified as Bethany.

      What would Bethany gain? She would be dead but living. Just like Alison's conversation with Aria when Meredith drugged her. "Tell me what it's like". Would be the perfect escape plan.

      I also don't believe Jessica burried Alison, I believe this was Mary. If it was Jessica, I think Alison/Bethany hit one or the other.

      My believe is that neither Mona or Charlotte did it.

      It's AD who made the switch.

      Bethany is dead. The identification in 5x05 was real, Bethany is the one in the grave. The switch worked in the Pilot when everybody believed Alison was dead, just like AD wanted it.

      If Jessica really buried Alison, I believe Jessica was forced/blackmailed into doing this. Maybe Charlotte and Jessica weren't alone while buring Alison, maybe there was a third person with them that night (AD ?), threatening them to act against Ali.

    • Why though?

      If Mona was A and she wanted Ali dead as we were told, then Mona has to be AD or else s.1-3 was a lie. Simple as that.

      For it to work out people have to gain something from their actions, or else the writers will never get this to work out or make any sense. Their have to be connections and reasons for their actions, It can't just be about blackmailing and maybe's. The question is why? And how is everything connected, character to character.

    • Season 1 and 2 was Mona against the four Liars. Only the girls, Mona knew about Alison. As revealed in 4x24, Mona knew Alison was alive. And in 6x10, Mona revealed she hit a girl that night. Nothing make the previous seasons a lie !

      If I'm right, cause here I'm not pretending I have all the answers, the whole plan will be revealed in 7x20 with AD's story and motive. We don't know enough about AD to be able to see connections yet.

    • What I ment with s.1-3 is that if it was Mona that was A then A.D is irrelevant, but what I guess you mean is that A.D wanted Alison dead and Mona was just a pawn?

      Yes. AD was there in the beginning, but had other motive. They never interfered with "Mona's game". AD did what they had to do that night, and then let the things go. AD targeting the Liars only in 6B. Before that, Mona and Charlotte were the only enemies !

      I think she is the actress for Bethany young!

    • I think you have to absolutely forget the books in watching the TV show. The Courtney story is completely excised from the story. We did get a LOT of twins though, it got a bit silly there for a bit :) 

      The actress above is part of what IMHO made the finale feel odd. I would have liked to go out on the "Holy cow, this is crazy yet funny" note of Mona with Mary and Alex sipping tea in her version of the dollhouse/bunker. (I do hate though that Mona is still cray cray, she is so smart and what a waste when she goes all nut balls.

      The blonde girl above said the same thing that Spencer did in the First episode of the show - except new Beautiful/Mean Girl ADDISON is now missing. "I think I heard her scream" or something.

      How come so many people stayed stuck to this Bethany bit? Was it because of the books? When I started reading, the show had already started and I realized they basically just used the names from the books and a teeny amount of personality traits, and that's pretty much all.

      The whole Melissa storyline was deleted because Marlene changed her mind.

    • And just because there is so much confusion above, Mona was A at first, and then Charlotte "stole the game from me {Mona]" at Radley. Cece/Charlotte was the A who said the 1st "A" "played with dolls. I play with body parts!". And that was the very freaking crazy Charlotte.

      AD showed up after Charlotte was killed, just as she said.  Obsessed with finding out who killed Charlotte. And that person used her actual initials. So we had three different people who were "in charge" (Since Mona was, for a time, working for Charlotte - but didn't know who she was working for! Remember what she said that night at the Lodge? That now she would never know who she was working for.
