Bethany and Alice Young
So about 524519 years ago I promised I’d share my theory about Bethany Young. Sorry guys, I’ve been busy… but here it is.
If you’ve been following my posts for at least a year you might remember that I never believed Ali had a twin (I still don’t, don’t worry), but I did say once that I thought Hanna might have one. And the reason for that was because of that ghost girl that appeared to Ashley Marin in the Halloween episode of season 3.
I no longer believe that Hanna has a twin.
But, we all know that the “ghost girl” does.
So who is this little girl?
According to Alison’s Halloween story (season 2, episode 13) there were two sisters. We know one of the girls’ names is Alice, but the other one’s name is unknown. The girl with the unknown name stabbed her twin sister and was sent to Radley (as far as I know).
I know that it seems like the girl who showed up at the Marin house (3x13) as a ghost, but let’s not forget that Ravenswood might have been a supernatural show, but Pretty Little Liars is NOT. My conclusion? The whole thing was just a prank. It was Halloween after all.
As far as I know, it was never mentioned that the little girl who was stabbed by her sister actually died.
So now I’m coming back to season 5.
What do we know about Bethany Young?
1. -A went to her funeral in last week’s episode
2. We don’t know who her parents are
3. She knew Mrs. D
4. According to her drawings she was blonde
5. She was a Radley patient
So here’s my pretty little theory:
Once upon a time there was an unstable woman called Jessica (yup, Mrs. D), who got pregnant. She gave birth to twins Alice and Bethany, but she gave the girls away. Bethany inherited her mother’s instability and stabbed her sister one day, which resulted in her being sent to Radley. Alice survived and later forgave her sister.
Mrs D had two more children: Jason and Alison. But because she loved her other daughters and wanted to make sure Bethany was ok, she got a position in Radley.
Alice stalked Alison for years, furious that her mother paid more attention to Alison than the twins. Both of the twins hated Mrs. D for taking care of Alison and not them.
So one night Bethany escaped from Radley, found Alison and hit her. Mrs. D saw the whole thing and buried Alison, thinking she was dead.
Alice might not have been in Radley, but since insanity runs in the family she killed Bethany, because she wanted to have her mother all to herself.
Everything was perfect for Alice until Mrs. D found out Alison was alive. That was when Alice killed her mother and started stalking and torturing all 5 liars. After all, -A is for Alice.
When it was confirmed that Bethany was dead, her sister obviously had to attend the funeral. But she won’t stop until Alison loses everything and everyone she cares about.
Of course this is just a theory and I don’t think it’ll happen, but it’s the only thing I thought of since Bethany Young was a totally random person that appeared out of nowhere.
One last thing - in last night’s episode we saw some of Bethany’s drawings and the liars were focused on the one that seemed to confirm that Bethany had something to do with Marion’s death. But have you seen the other drawings? One of them was a blonde girl standing in front of a MIRROR (supports my theory), and then there were a bunch of monsters and Mrs. D. I think these drawings are more important than the falling woman.
