5 'The Perfectionists' Theories 'PLL' Fans Need to Read


The Pretty Little Liars spinoff The Perfectionists just premiered, but already fan theories are running rampant on the internet. 

In the very first episode, the very popular Nolan Hotchkiss was killed — which is prompting viewers (and readers of the books) to speculate on who killed Nolan. 

Along with finding the murderer, fans also have fan theories to explain why Emily Fields is missing from Beacon Heights, and what the infamous red coat we saw in the promo really means?

1. Who killed Nolan?

The biggest question surrounding The Perfectionists is the death of Nolan Hotchkiss. One fan has a pretty convincing theory as to who killed Nolan (and led his sister to fake her death a year earlier). 

"Now Taylor’s audition tape states that both Hotchkiss kids had a bad relationship with their parents and secretly planned to steal their business from them. But the mom probably caught wind of that, since she is actively stalking her son with cameras in the pilot episode," redditor Harley4L wrote. "I'm starting to think that the Hotchkiss family was discarding “their imperfect members," who wanted to ruin them. Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan‘s plan to murder Nolan might just be something the mom caught on her video tapes by chance and decided to run with it." 

Seeing as Nolan was murdered in the books by Julie Redding, a character who is not on the show, this theory is plausible.
