I’m convinced Caleb is A.D. in Pretty Little Liars 

Pretty Little Liars ends for good in a few days and we will finally learn who A.D. is. Who is the big bad that has taken over Charlotte’s game and been terrorising the girls? Well I’ve been chatting to friends and reading online theories and now I’m convinced it’s Caleb Rivers (Tyler Blackburn).

Now that I’ve come to this conclusion, I can’t imagine it being anybody else so let me explain why I think this:

– he rushed into a marriage with Hanna (Ashley Benson). They haven’t been back together THAT long, they don’t even live together and they were engaged for a minute (with no ring!) This feels incredibly suspicious. He even said it meant they couldn’t testify against each other, which seemed at the time like he was doing it to help out Hanna as she was about to be arrested for Rollins/Dunhill’s murder but perhaps he was thinking ahead for himself?

– besides the queen that is Mona (Janel Parrish), he is only one (that we know of) that is super smart with technology and could convincingly make the game and track them etc etc

– his meeting with Mona at the Two Crows was weird. It really didn’t feel like he was interrupting her expected meet with AD, it felt like he was the one supposed to be there. He had this confidence and the way he ate a piece of her pie, it was like he knew about the note AD sent

– him and Ezra (Ian Harding) learned that the game was in Mona’s apartment and soon after it disappears

– Hanna fills him in on everything so he knows more than anyone outside the Liars (except Mona, but she is not AD). He has the inside track on everything, knows where they’re gonna be all the time and he has access to Lucas’ apartment and we know Lucas has a connection to Charles

– he has been living in the Radley – what has he been doing there?

– we know virtually nothing about his upbringing and his time before Rosewood – he could literally be anybody

– he is the only one who has got with more than one Liar – maybe his romance with Spencer (Troian Bellisario) was just to drive a wedge between them?

– From Ezra to Toby (Keegan Allen), the boyfriends have been “revealed” as A before but then it’s always been a red herring. Caleb has never been and maybe that’s because he actually is AD.

I really hope he is. When the A reveals were made with Ezra and Toby I was so shocked but loved it at the same time but they were quickly taken away and I was disappointed that they weren’t genuinely evil. So I want Caleb to be AD and I don’t want excuses to be made for his behaviour. He needs to be properly psycho. That’s what the show needs.

Marlene King said recently that it’s nobody we’ve met yet and I think that’s a red herring. There’s no way they could introduce someone new this late in the game and make them AD. There would be uproar. I just think it’s her way of saying we haven’t met who the person really is yet so Caleb could be hiding his true identity. I can’t wait!


  1. […] moment we had been waiting for: the end of Pretty Little Liars and the AD reveal. A few days ago, I predicted that Caleb was AD but now we know I was wrong and I can’t tell you how let down I feel that they stuck with the […]
