In the bombshell Pretty Little Liars season 7A finale — an episode that included a literal beheading 😳 — Ali revealed to Emily that she is pregnant in an emotional scene that ended with the two characters kissing. Fans rejoiced at a legit Emison moment after years of shipping, but they also freaked out for another reason: is Ali actually carrying Emily's baby?!
Ali told Emily that the baby belongs to ex-husband Elliott Rollins aka Archer Dunhill. But some fans are convinced that the identity of the mother is up for debate. Recall that earlier in the season, Emily had her eggs harvested and stolen. Did one of Emily's MIA eggs somehow make its way into Ali's uterus?
Let's examine the evidence.
-The drama with Emily's eggs isn't the kind of plot point you throw in for fun. The PLL writers have been building toward the series finale for a while now, so every detail counts. Ain't nobody got time for pointless egg harvesting.
-On a show that relies heavily on twins, secret twins, switched identities, and the occasional love child, there's no guarantee that Ali's Future Baby has a straightforward lineage. Uteruses are fair game in Rosewood.
-As Tumblr user emisonislifeok points out, a seemingly offhand comment in tonight's episode could foreshadow the theory. When Hanna asked her doctor friend to run a DNA test on Noel Kahn's blood in an effort to tie him to Mary Drake, the doctor asked if she was having baby daddy drama. Read emisonislifeok's full explanation of the moment:
-Finally, there could be something more sinister at play. Some fans have speculated that A.D. is actually Ali — her initials, Alison DiLaurenitis, fit the bill, and she was the OG secret-keeper on the Liars squad. If Ali is A.D., that gives her a strong motive for implanting herself with Emily's eggs. She knows the Liars would never harm her if she's carrying Emily's child, even if she's been playing them like a creepy set of dolls since season one. Of course, Ali was with the Liars during tonight's murderous season finale, which seems to shut down the theory that she's moonlighting as A.D. But A has had underlings do her bidding before.
Given that this all seems COMPLETELY INSANE, it's probably true.
