OK, since I realize I’m the only one thinking this, I’ll make a post out of it.
I know everyone is trying to figure out if Mona confessed because she really killed Wilden or because she’s trying to do something else… But what’s on MY mind is - DUDE, Hanna killed Wilden.
First of all, Mona didn’t do it - in one of next week’s sneak peeks we see that some of the things Mona said in her confession don’t add up with the evidence. Meaning, she’s not telling the truth. She didn’t kill him. She just confessed to doing it because she knows Hanna really did it and she wants to save her because she’s insanely in love with her :P
Why do I think Hanna did it?
Well, COME ON! That entire scene of Hanna and Mona trying to make up that perfect lie was showing us that it’s not a lie, it’s the truth, Hanna ACTUALLY DID IT! (but she doesn’t remember she did).
I know they were going into details because she needed to believe it’s the truth in order to lie perfectly… But this is Hanna we’re talking about. Her imagination can’t be THAT vivid. What we see is her imagination and what she and Mona are making up (the lie, that she killed Wilden) turns into her MEMORY, her suppressed memories coming up from that night (the truth, that she killed Wilden). She even switched from talking about Wilden as a dead person, in the past… TO PRESENT TENSE. Saying that he’s going to hurt her and her mother, like he’s alive… She’s speaking from a REAL place of fear that she had from Wilden… the same place from which she had the guts to shoot him and kill him.
It’s right there in the imagination/flashback scenes! Her clothes change from what she’s wearing while she’s imagining it to what she wore the night Wilden died.
(I know this could mean that Mona and Hanna went over ALL of the details of the lie, like the clothes, so that Hanna would even know what she wore that night and could tell the cops if they asked and sound like she’s telling the truth… but what I think it all means is that SHE DID IT.)
Here is what Hanna is wearing while she is talking with Mona:
And here is what she’s wearing when she starts imagining the LIE (same clothes, because she’s putting her current self in the make believe situation):
So far so good, Hanna is still making this up - and also having trouble with it, so Mona helps her. But then later on, things are different. So, either she’s really buying into the lie (so MUCH that she starts speaking in PRESENT TENSE as if Wilden isn’t dead yet… this could mean Mona is really good at putting her in that imagined situation or……..) Hanna is starting to remember and is now bringing things up from real events and her real feelings and memories. This is when we see her wearing the clothes she wore the night Wilden was killed, and not the ones she was wearing before (also her hair is up like it was that night):
Also, why the hell is Ashley there? Did Ashley witness this? Does she know Hanna is suppressing it? Is she trying to take the blame for her?
Hanna also recalls these little details, like Wilden kicking the car… Like she was there.
However, it doesn’t make sense that she had the time to do it, because the girls passed out from the fire and were all together, right?
Well… how long were they passed out? What if there are things from that night we weren’t shown? (I mean, there are PLENTY of things we weren’t shown, maybe there’s more we haven’t thought of yet)… Maybe Hanna woke up before the rest of the girls (she did see Ali right in front of her), maybe the person she thought was Ali was someone else, who took her to Wilden and then brought her back? Wouldn’t be the first time one of the girls totally blacks out on an ENTIRE night (ahemmm, Emily), and maybe the reason is oxygen deprivation or something, I dunno.
This probably doesn’t make a WHOLE lot of sense, but I needed to put this out there, because this was the first thing that popped up for me when I was watching that scene.
Hopefully, Hanna never killed anyone… But I think the show is all about slowly - but surely - showing us that the 4 liars are not innocent, AT ALL :)
