A lot of fans have been trying to figure out exactly how Charles and Bethany are connected, and if they are even connected at all. One Seventeen reader, Reginald Lambert, presented this theory:”Charles and Bethany are the same person. Charles was sent to Radley for wanting to be a woman. That’s why Ali’s mom always visited her, that’s why she told Ali not to tell her dad about the second yellow dress. Bethany hated Ali because she had the life she always wanted that’s why she’s pissed.”
“Marlene said she wanted fans to be able to piece things together. Yes, the blocks spelt out ‘Charles’ and Mona’s anagram in her book was ‘Charles Dilaurentis’ but also ‘Nerd Lucas is the Liar’. Lucas is Charles. Just a brother to Alison and Jason. Growing up Lucas/Charles either wanted to be like Alison or wanted to be a girl… which would explain 1. Mrs. D buying the two dresses (possibly) 2. His obsession with dolls/dollhouse 3. Why Alison hated Lucas so much, and him her. 4. Why Alison always called Lucas ‘hermy’ and ‘Hermaphrodite’ 5. Why he is making the girls act out prom, remember back at homecoming? He only went to photograph the event. Lucas is Charles, was shunned by the DiLaurentis family, and was who Mrs. D could no longer protect.”
This just got a whole load more confusing! i still think its Wren though because the figure in the doll house was tall and just looked like him to me.
