In the first page of Ali’s journal (which i will eventually find a screen cap of) she mentioned something about collecting all of her friend’s secrets, and using them against them in order to get out of “this stupid town.”
In 4x15 Spencer is taking pictures of Ali’s journal and we see this screen cap (courtesy of someone else, the photo is not mine)
it reads "Hot For Teacher: I saw a teacher interviewing today with the principle. He was quite sexy. High school boys are gross, college guys are only looking for one thing, but older men, now they know what they want and take it all. He looks kinda bookish, but in a cute way. I will get to know him eventually and to have a teacher on my side…"
So usually i make theories about how Ezra isn’t A and such and such, but i have to point all of this out.
If Ali was going to use everyone’s secrets against everyone in order to leave town and continue to mess with them (which would make her the original and real A in this case), then she was going to have to create a team. We don’t get to see the rest of this journal entry but it is apparent that she felt the need to express that having a teacher on her team would be helpful in some way. Of course it would be, they’re around students and her friends all the time.
Of course she was talking about Ezra, that’s quite obvious. And then it’s quite obvious that Ali got to know him and recruited him on her team, maybe hooking up with him romantically too? i hope not but you never know. Which would make Ezra part of the A team. which is quite upsetting in all actuality.
but if you look at the details and plots of the entire show, (and take into account what i said in my last theory which can be found here) then we can assume that Ezra fell in love with Aria, making him want to change the way he acts on the A team etc. We can also assume that Ezra’s current creepy A status is in fact what i say in all of my other theories (including my most popular which can be found here) which is that he is trying to conquer A and take her down in order to protect the people he chooses to protect, himself and Aria included.
I also can point out that Aria was leaning over Spencer’s shoulder and got a glimpse of this page, her face actually showed skepticism and worry. Which goes into the fact that i think Aria is figuring it out. She’s in the midst of putting the pieces together, which is sad for my Ezria heart. but you know.
There’s no moral to this post, not really a theory to be had. Just pointing out some information that i put together, which then relates to my previous theories.
