Caleb Rivers Could Be Mary Drake’s Son

Caleb Rivers Could Be Mary Drake’s Son

Caleb Rivers could be Mary Drake’s son.

Okay, okay.  We’re all making theories.  We’re all running out of brain cells with which we can (not) stop ourselves from utilising on Marlene King’s mindfuck of a mystery that is Pretty Little Liars.  

I don’t have much to go on.  However, upon a rewatch.  (Yes, I’m in grad school and have a shit ton of school work, and yet STILL find the time to theorise of this god forsaken show!)

But I digress.

Upon a rewatch episode 3×19 – “What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted?” – Hanna finds out that Caleb’s ‘Uncle-Daddy’, Jamie Doyle, lives in Amish Country.  

I know that the WB backlot probably only has one barn to use for 25 television shows, but the barn Jamie is working in looks pretty familiar.

And then in 7×03, “The Talented Mr Rollins” Aria and Hanna visit Amish Country to find out more about Elliot Rollins.

But back to Caleb…

We don’t know anything about Caleb’s “real” mother, Claudia Dawson.  We are aware she lives in Montecito, CA and that she has a shit ton of cash.

We know that when Caleb was 5/6 years old, his aunt left him with a babysitter and nobody ever came back for him.

I know, why would Claudia admit to being Caleb’s mother (and have a PI track him down) if he wasn’t hers?

Maybe because she believes that the Caleb we know is her son.

In 3×04, “Birds of a Feather“, we see a computer screen accessing Radley’s patient database removing visitor restrictions for Mona.

‘A’ is at the Montecito Airport – presumably to intimidate  Caleb’s ‘mother’ and run her off the road.  WHY?

Again, WHY?  That’s a lot of effort to just get back at Hanna.  I suppose that Caleb is sticking his nose in, but again, there has to be more as to why ‘A’ would target Caleb’s mother.

Caleb goes out to visit his mother and comes back with an expensive Mercedes-Benz and new clothing – she let him drive back to Pennsylvania on his own in her car?

I don’t know.  It all seems a bit odd.

Maybe Jamie ‘Uncle-Daddy’ Doyle had a thing for Radley hotties. Perhaps at the same time, he was having a relationship with Caleb’s mother he ALSO had a relationship with Mary Drake.

Maybe Jamie was a patient at Radley also?

Is it possible that Jamie kidnapped Caleb, and that’s why at the age of six he was eventually “left with a babysitter”, and they never came back for him?

Could Caleb have been switched with Claudia’s real son?

From the tone of Caleb’s early childhood stories, he was a kid placed in dangerous situations at a young age, rather than born into one.

I mean, c’mon, you (usually) don’t end up sleeping in high school HVAC system at sixteen if you come from a stable affair.

I mean, unless you’re Alison.  Well, technically she was sleeping rough, but, again, her family is super fucked up too.

Anyhoo.

I also find it very suspicious that we’ve never met Caleb’s mother, but then again, we’ve never met Jenna’s or Toby’s folks either.

Or Noel’s for that matter.

Also, Caleb just happened to “bump into Spencer” in Spain during the flash forward?

I’ve had some weird random connections in life.

However, we all know that there are no coincidences in Rosewood (or between any of its previous residents!).

I’m not saying that Caleb is AD.

I’m not even suggesting that he’s bad, but he has always been sketchy in a vigilante type of way to me.

I need to stop watching this show.

You’re killing us all, Marlene.

Could Caleb Rivers be Mary Drake's son? I think it's totally possible. #pllchat #calebisAD Click To Tweet

Any thoughts?

 

12 observations about pretty little liars episode 7x04

12 Biggest Observations From Pretty Little Liars Episode 7×04

So, last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars (which is this morning’s episode over here in the UK) 7×04, was action-packed and full of all kinds of “bitch, please” moments.

Here are the 12 most memorable moments of episode 7×04:

  1. Vehicular manslaughter is not first-degree murder.  The girls did not drive out toward the pin drop on the GPS with the intention of killing Elliot Rollins.  Although, why do they ALWAYS have four shovels with them?  I don’t even own a shovel and certainly never kept one in the trunk of my car.
  2. Spencer, I love you, but your comment “What do we tell the cops? That Hanna can’t tell the left pedal from the right?!”  That’s cold, Spence.
  3. Ali would be amazing at “the claw” machine.  Seriously.  She just stuck her hand in the dirt and pulled out Elliot’s security keycard without any need for a do-over.  #AliClawLaurentis
  4. Does Emily seriously work 2-hour shifts at the Radley?  She seemingly worked an entire shift with Spencer sitting there chugging martinis?  Also, Emily, you knew that Spencer had to drive Elliot’s car to the train station, purchase a ticket, and board the fucking train – why are you serving her tons of alcohol?  You guys already killed one dude with a car this evening.  Just saying.  #EmilyFieldsWorkEthics
  5. Caleb crying through the door about stroking Spencer’s chin dimple on a street corner was touching, but also, I feel like he needed a day to come up with that speech.  Also, Ashley Benson’s crying game is on point.  #CalebIsCoDependent
  6. Alison DID follow Charlotte into the bell tower of the church the night she died, but when she left, Charlotte was still alive.  This event is becoming the new “that night” scenario of PLL.  #WhoKilledCharlotteIsSheEvenDead
  7. Loved the “Keebler Elf” shout out while Hanna and Aria tried to relocate their car by the tree mostly likely to have housed one of the cracker eating critters.  Also, I’m glad Mona showed up with the car before these two set fire to it in a heavily wooded area.  Adding a massive wildfire arson charge to the evening isn’t what they needed.  #MonaThinksOfEverything
  8. Spencer totally used Elliot’s credit card to pay for the drinks she was slamming with the new detective she almost banged in the elevator.  Woops.  #DrunkSpencer
  9. Best line of the show goes to Jenna Marshall and her response to Emily’s question, “And you’re staying at the Radley?” to which she replied, “Oh, didn’t you hear?  My house blew up.”  #YasJennaYassss
  10.  Hanna and Mona rubbed their fingerprints and scent all over Elliot’s car.  They might as well have keyed, “Mona + Hanna BFF” on the hood.
  11. Elliot’s real name is, Archer Dunhill, but he’s not A.D.  I know that Marlene lies about things sometimes, but I believe she told us that Elliot and Mary are working with A.D. and that individual is, UBER A.   Also, he’s friendly with Jenna, and that means things are going to get even MORE confusing.
  12. Don’t worry, dear, Mary Drake is “in charge now.”

We were told by Marlene that the Liars would make “the biggest mistake of their lives” and that this error will be the FUEL to fire Uber A’s final game.  I, like many other viewers, have been wondering what the hell the “most dangerous A of all” has done that is so terrible compared to any other A — so, hopefully now that the girls done fucked up, we’ll all start to see things get scandalous.

As seen in the promo for 7×05, “Along Comes Mary.”
