This week I began to watch Milo Murphy 's law. As a true Phineas and Ferb fan, I really enjoyed it, since there are many jokes and easter eggs hidden in Milo Murphy that date back to Phineas and Ferb. But, just three episodes in, I began to devise a theory. Maybe it 's too early in the show to tell, but I have a pretty bold theory, and I 'm prepared to back it up.

My theory: Melissa Chase is Candace 's Sister

At first glance, this theory seems impossible. So rather than try to explain my theory all at once, I 'll explain the answers to different arguments against this theory.

Flynn is her maiden name. She was married to someone with the last name Chase, although she did not change her last name (which is not uncommon). During her marriage, she had three children, Candace, Mellissa, and Phineas. Once she got divorced, she remarried to Lawrence Fletcher, who was the father of Ferb. The reason we never see Mellissa with her family, is that Linda and her first husband have worked out and agreement to allow Mellissa to visit with her father during the summer. But if this is true, how come Mellissa 's last name is Chase, and not Flynn? I think she goes by Chase, because she doesn 't want to be immediately associated with Phineas and Ferb. We 've already seen throughout the Phineas and Ferb series that Phineas and Ferb are known all throughout town as the coolest kids ever. I think Melissa uses her former last name as a way to not be immediately associated as just "Phineas and Ferb 's older sister."

Argument 2: Why would there be any reason to assume that the two are sisters?

Well, if you look at their pictures, you 'll see what I mean.

First of all, they have a very similar red shade of hair. While this doesn 't seem to be very compelling evidence, have you ever noticed that both Phineas and his mom are readheads too?

Furthermore, have you ever noticed how few redheads are in the Milo Murphy, and Phineas and Ferb series?
