There is only one episode left of the third season of Pretty Little Liars, and the burning question we have all been wondering since the show began still remains unanswered. Who killed Alison DiLaurentis?
You would think by now the viewers would be able to narrow down a list of suspects, but it’s actually quite the opposite. The list of possible killers seems to be growing longer and longer with every episode. It’s anyone’s guess anymore, considering Rosewood was practically having a block party in Ali’s backyard the night she was murdered.
Really, who WASN’T in her back yard that night? Basically every one that knew Ali had a motive to end her life; apparently she wasn’t exactly a ray of sunshine. It’s nearly impossible to pinpoint her killer based on motive. But we can try to narrow down the list of suspects based on opportunity, who was the last person to see Alison DiLaurentis alive that night? It could have been any of the following people, or possibly someone that hasn’t even been revealed to us yet.
Ian and Alison videotaped themselves at The Kissing Rock the night she was killed.
Garrett Reynolds & Jenna Marshall.
Jenna demanded Alison turn over the NAT Club’s videos, and took a swing at her (and missed due to her blindness). Garrett pretended to hit Alison over the head with a field hockey stick and also missed, however Alison played dead and Garrett played along. Jenna was under the impression Garrett killed her, but according to him she was alive and well when they left her in her backyard.
Byron paid Ali a visit in her backyard as well that night. He told her he was no longer going to allow her to blackmail him about his affair with his student Meredith. He was paying Alison thousands of dollars to keep his secret for him.
Although Jason was too inebriated to stand up the night Alison disappeared, he was in the backyard that night. He was sitting on the back porch when Melissa and CeCe were discussing Alison. Sidenote, he also revealed the CeCe was wearing the same shirt as Alison the night she disappeared which will probably be an important clue later on.
Melissa Hastings & CeCe Drake.
Speaking of Melissa and CeCe. Melissa apparently called CeCe and asked her to come talk Ali into returning the NAT Club’s videos. According to CeCe after she got done talking to Melissa, she too had a conversation with Alison that night, and convinced her to go get the videos. Alison left to go get them out of her hiding-spot, and CeCe never seen her again.
Ali also ran into Toby Cavanaugh the night she died, but according to him they just talked and she left very well alive, and wearing his sweater because it was cold. The same sweater that was later recovered in his house with her blood on it.
We all know Alison started the night off at a sleepover in Spencer’s barn. But, after Emily, Hanna, and Aria fell asleep she got into a pretty heated argument with Spencer and stormed out. Spencer admitted to following her outside, since there was a photograph of her doing so, but according to Spencer she never found Alison after their fight and she went straight back to the sleepover.
