Season 1 of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists has been so full of twists and turns we could barely keep up! Every time the Perfectionists solved a mystery, a new one cropped up to confuse us all. But we still don't have the answer to the biggest question: who killed Nolan Hotchkiss?! In Beacon Heights there's no shortage of suspects — check them all out below.
We all love Alison, but if we’ve learned anything from her past it’s not to underestimate her. Her life has been shaken up in a big way since the end of Pretty Little Liars, and she was the one Nolan arranged to meet on the roof the night he died ...
Could Nolan’s killer have been right under Dylan’s nose this whole time? Sure, Andrew doesn’t seem like the murdering type, but could he have lost control in a fit of passion — maybe trying to protect Dylan?
Although it seems like Ava genuinely loved Nolan, he also knew all of her secrets. Ava has worked too hard creating her new brand to let anything, or anyone, threaten that.
Caitlin's fierce ambition and drive to succeed means she would do anything to achieve her goals. And let's not forget, she predicted Nolan's death in suspiciously specific detail! It seems a little extreme to get yourself hit by a car, but it's also the perfect way to avoid suspicion.
Mama Hotchkiss doesn't seem to be overflowing with affection for her children — the saying "Mother knows best" was made for her! Is it possible that Claire's PR-preoccupation and ruthless ambition caused her to murder her own son?
She's a disgraced FBI agent turned disgraced head of private security. Dana definitely doesn't mind breaking the rules, but what's her motive for murder? One thing's for sure, being in charge of the investigation would be a handy position from which to cover her own tracks.
We don’t know a lot about Dr. Fielder, but her behavior after Alison transferred to her department was highly suspicious. Who was she speaking to on the phone? What is Ali “in”? What is going on?
Dylan has built a life for himself after spending years being bullied. And after all, what was Nolan if not a big bully? What if Dylan just got fed up with it all? He told Ava and Caitlin that “Things aren’t always good or evil” — does that include Dylan himself?
He may have the looks and the charm, but let's not forget that Gabriel's a professor. Could his fancy footwork be a deception to dance himself away from danger? We don’t know much about his past, but if he was hiding his marriage what else could he be hiding?
Jeremy’s character this season has taken more twists and turns than a runaway RV. We just can’t keep up with whether or not we can trust him. The Professor (whoever they are) claims his innocence, but is that just another lie in this crazy game?
Luke's a newbie, but how can we trust him knowing how he made Dylan's life hell? And telling someone, “You don’t have to be afraid of me" makes you sound pretty suspicious.
Just how bad is the Bad Bishop? His motives for killing Nolan seemed obvious in the beginning, but now his relationship with Mona has shown us a softer side. Was this all a double bluff?
Ava’s dad is one shady character and up to his neck in illegal activity. Even his own daughter can’t trust him anymore! And it didn’t take long after Nolan’s death for him to come back to Beacon Heights ...
We've learned to trust Mona since her A days, but she still has a slightly unusual moral compass. She's got a history of staying anonymous and has tech skills to spare — could she have found a way around Beacon Guard's surveillance?
In Beacon Heights nothing is as it seems, and one Hotchkiss sibling has already faked their own death …
Ray’s “cloak of invisibility” allows him to move around Beacon Heights unnoticed, and he seems to know everything that goes on within its walls. He also told Mona that Nolan “deserved what he got”.
A cheating scandal would be a serious problem for Caitlin's ambitious mom's political career. If she found out about Nolan's sneaky pics, who knows what she could be capable of?
Taylor seems to love her brother, but we all know what she's capable of when she's on the edge. Between her technical genius and manic moments, we wouldn't want her as an enemy.
Sure, he appears friendly enough on the surface, but we’ve seen Zach hold a grudge. And just how well does he know the Professor?
Yeah, she seems pretty oblivious to the suspicious goings on around Beacon Heights. But she’s not exactly a loyal friend ... coat theft? Really, Zoe? What other secrets lie below her ditzy exterior?
Unknown Mystery Person/The Professor
With all of the twists and turns we've seen so far, it wouldn't be surprising if Nolan's killer was someone we haven't even met yet. And what's up with the Professor? Are they really the killer? Or just another mysterious Beacon Heights figure playing a twisted game? So. Many. Questions.
