Who is Red Coat?
Charlotte knew that if Ali were alive, she would come for her friends if they were in trouble. Charlotte sent in a decoy Red Coat to Thornhill Lodge to distract Mona while she trapped the girls. However, all hell broke loose when Shana showed up and locked the girls in the lodge.
And the mysterious Red Coat turns out to be…Sara Harvey?
I’m starting to see a pattern here. Sara has only had a physical presence in 10 episodes throughout the entire series and the only other time the show even referenced her was in episode 4.14, “Who’s in the Box?” The payoff did not seem as satisfying as it would have been if Red Coat had a larger presence since the beginning of the series.
So why did Charlotte keep playing the game? And are we going to excuse her for trying to murder the girls?
After the girls fingered Shana as A, Charlotte used this as an excuse to quit the game, but it turned out to be too addictive for her. She also admits that she never planned on hurting any of the girls because she “loves all of her dolls.” That’s why she kidnapped them and kept them alive.
Who is the Black Widow?
Charlotte killed Wilden because he found out Ali was alive and didn’t want her to tell the story. She sent in the Black Widow to Wilden’s funeral to confirm he was, in fact, dead.
And Black Widow is…also Sara Harvey. Red Coat and Black Widow were the same person? Cheap.
After hearing the truth about Sara, Emily tries to find a way out of the room. Spencer finds a secret door behind glass that Mona shatters with a piece of metal hidden inside her heels (because even a former A comes equipped). While the girls head to Radley, Mona stays behind to hear the rest of the story.
NEXT: Looking to the future!
