Take a look at PLL’s scariest moments so far!
She says “I know, Emily told me” :)
I don’t know if this has ever been pointed out, but in Lolita there is a girl younger, by only like a year or so, than the guy she loves. Eventually, the little girl ends up of dying of a disease. Humbert, the man, later on perseus into becoming an English Literature a teacher. Still distraught over the death of his love, he falls for somebody else. This girl turns out to be a lot younger than him. Lolita, the girl, ends up being kidnapped, at least in Humberts mind. He spends so many hours, upon days, upon weeks searching for Lolita. While Lolita is gone, Humbert goes after another girl. Lolita, while missing, becomes pregnant, and is need of money. Lolita is married at this point. Humbert wants to kill this man, assuming that he is the one that kidnapped Lolita from the hospital, at the time when he was still in love with her. He eventually realizes that this wasn’t the man that he seeked to kill. Humbert begs Lolita with money to return to him, as he is so deeply in love. Lolita refuses to. Humbert eventually gets sent to jail. In jail,Humbert continues to write a memoir, about his time with Lolita, and as she disappeared. Although, he knows that he can’t publish a book that would be based on lies, as the Lolita he knows is alive. Eventually, Mr. Humbert dies while in jail, so his book is not published.
I feel as if the girl that Humbert loves in the beginning could be presumed as Maggie or Jackie, as it was just a girl he loved, or possible in their case, liked. Maggie and Jackie being near the same age as Mr. Humbert. I am also presuming Mr.Humbert to be Ezra.
Humbert leaving the girl who is dead now. Maggie was sent off, by being bribed by Ezra’s mother. So, I am saying that her being sent off, like in the book her dying. After that happens he becomes an English Teacher, as he mentioned always wanting to be.
Then, Lolita, I would say is Alison. We know that Lolita is kidnapped in the hospital in the book. Alison was murdered, and disappeared according to the polices thoughts for the longest while.
Although, at the point Alison wasn’t missing we know that she thought she was pregnant at one point. And at sometime in Season 4, while we find that Alison is on the run, you see that she is in need of money, In comparison to Lolita, we know that Alison was never married. But who knows should could have had some affliction with Noel while away, as we know that Noel knew where she was, and has been helping her along the way. When Humbert finds Lolita he wants to kill the husband. When the girls find Alison they don’t trust Noel, as to the things he has done in the past.
Alison is given money to get away but doesn’t, which reflects to the opposite where in Lolita she is given money to return, but doesn’t.
We know that in the show Ezra is never sent to jail, but he is sent to the hospital. The whole time before he was writing a book on Alison, which would be a memoir. He was writing a book on his time with her, and the time when she disappeared, trying to find out who killed her, or who is -A, wants he finds out she is still alive. Ezra does never publish his book, but in his case to please Aria. Aria in the real story who would be Rita. A girl he falls for when Lolita is gone, and again is much younger than him.
I personally, do not think that Ezra will die, but he is in the hospital, barely making it out of recovery, when he had another, presumably an epileptic attack.
And as many other people have pointed out the author of Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov, is an anagram to Vivian Darkbloom, the pseudonym that Alison uses.
Next, I want to mention the other book prominently known in PLL. Which is ‘Tender is the Night’. Tender is the night is written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, which I for one find quite funny, since it is the book that Ezra is reading. But I wanted to relate the story of this book to another family, that primely has nothing to do with Ezra.
( I haven’t read this book though, so the summary will be copied and pasted off of Sparknotes)
Rosemary Hoyt, a beautiful eighteen-year-old movie starlet, on vacation with her mother, arrives at a rather deserted portion of the French Riviera. There, Rosemary meets Dick Diver, a handsome American psychologist in his thirties with whom she instantly falls in love. Dick and his wife, Nicole, are exemplars of grace and sophistication, and move among a social set of similarly extraordinary people. Rosemary becomes part of this world, and in the gay times that follow, Dick begins to reciprocate Rosemary’s feelings for him. Everything goes splendidly until, after an alcoholic friend of the Divers accidentally kills a man, Rosemary discovers Dick comforting Nicole, who has had a mental breakdown.
The story shifts back in time to relate the events that led up to the marriage of Dick and Nicole. Dick attended Yale, was a Rhodes scholar, and then moved to Vienna to study clinical psychology. Once, as Dick was leaving a clinic on the Zurichsee, he met the sixteen-year-old Nicole Warren, who was being checked in. The Chicago heiress had been sexually abused by her father and, as a result, had developed an acute fear of men. The two fall in love, and Dick becomes both her doctor and her husband. They travel extensively, are happy, and have two children together.
I am relating this book to the Montgomery’s. In this case, Rosemary Hoyt would be Meredith Sorenson. Dick, or Byron falls for Meredith as well. Meredith is in love with Byron, and he eventually starts to feel the same way. We know this by the fact that when Ella eventually leaves him in PLL to be with Zac, he just goes back to Meredith.
Next, I am not sure what episode but Ella mentioned that she hadn’t dated anyone since high school, because she was in love with Byron at the time. In the story, Dick and Nicole meet at this same young age, which would be around the time a person would be in high school. And to skip along we know that the Montgomery’s have two children together.
This goes off topic of the Montgomery’s, but it is mentioned that Nicole is in need of a (psychologist/psychiatrist). Which a person in need of that could have a personality disorder. I know in the book the character doesn’t, but in one point it was mentioned that one character in the show had a personality disorder. Could this character be Ella, since she was married to Byron, and it follows along that pattern line, or could it just be any random character, and still make that connection to the book.
Do you remember when the liars tracked down those other girls whose friend is still actually missing? The friends that said the liars are lucky because they have ‘closure’?
I think their friend that went missing is part of this. The description was like Ali. Similar personality and look. She could be in the grave… or alive and part of it all.
We were saying the same thing after watching the Season 5 premiere :( It’s just so jumbled, we had to pause so many times and say “wait, what?” because it’s all over the place with storylines. We just need some answers, not more complications and questions! You’re right though, I believe we’ll ride this one out and then Season 6 (possibly at college) will be their last.
My theory is that Alison was pretending to be the real “A”. Alison was getting threats from “A” a long time before the other Liars were. Maybe Alison started threatening the other Liars in order for them to be on Alison’s side. “A” is a very powerful person and can only be defeated if you have an entire group of people. “A” can’t be defeated by only one person. Ali only told the Liars what she wanted them to know. Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna aren’t being threatened by the same person that Ali was/is being threatened by.
It all began on this day, June 8th, 4 years ago… happy 4th birthday PLL!
Ashley Benson’s interview with OK Magaine
OK!: What can we expect from Hanna this season?
Ashley Benson: Well this year she’s going to go through kind of a dark phase. She kind of loses who she is and doesn’t really know who she is. She tried to be like Allison and now that Allison’s back she doesn’t want to be like that anymore. She feels like she’s been putting on a front for the past few years. She’s going to go through a dark period. Her style is going to change drastically and she’s going to get back into alcohol like she was in the first season. We’ll see where that takes her. I wanted a darker storyline this year. I don’t know how dark it’s going to go but I would like it to go pretty dark.
OK!: Is it fun changing up her style to reflect that?
AB: Yeah, because now she’s in jeans and boots and t-shirts—really comfortable stuff—rather than before when it was always high heels and florals, which I love but it’s fun to see her change a little bit.
OK!: Loving the dark streaks in your hair right now.
AB: It’s fine. I just can’t wait to take them out because I have so much hair right now with all of the black pieces—I want it out!
OK!: Caleb returns to Rosewood this season, will he and Hanna be able to rekindle their romance?
AB: I think so. I think they’re going to have a really interesting storyline together this year. He’s back and it’s kind of awkward at the beginning because Hanna’s with Travis and he knows that and he doesn’t like that. I’m hoping they’ll get back together.

Before the premiere airs on Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday (depending where you live), we’d love to hear your final theories, conclusions and guesstimations :) What do you think we’ll learn from this episode? What direction is this season going to take?
