And now that episode four has come to a close, we are left thinking about one character and one character only: Kitty.
The internet has been sleuthing and theorizing about this character since her first promotional video was released and have landed on one star who seems to be a good match—Elizabeth Gillies. Not to go against the grain here, but we have to respectfully disagree. Allow us to explain.
We’ll start off by saying that Liz Gillies isn’t a bad guess at all. In fact, she actually fits a lot of the criteria. The Kitty chose to sing Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman.” Gillies is actually an ex-Nickelodeon actress who starred alongside Grande in the hit show Victorious. Even before that, the two were on Broadway together in a show called “13”. So, the Kitty’s choice of song definitely could be a tribute to Gillies’s dear friend. But...we’re not convinced. That seems to be the only tie between the two and that just seems a little too obvious.
There are other major clues to consider that don’t exactly fit the 26-year-old. First let’s look at Kitty’s eyes—one is yellow and the other is blue. So, maybe our celeb has heterochromia (which Gillies does not). Another major clue was the fact that the character said "I am being somebody that nobody has ever seen before, and it's always been inside of me. So it's great!" Gillies’s entire career has been about music and being on stage, so that quote also doesn’t fit. And finally, there’s the rose reference in her clue package, which honestly, still has us stumped.
Listen, we’re not exactly sure who Kitty is, but, sorry internet, we’re just not sure that Liz Gillies is our girl.
