New year. New secrets.
ABC Family's smash series Pretty Little Liars is back tonight at 8 p.m. with the winter premiere of season four, and it's going to be one hour of TV that you absolutely cannot miss.
We can tell that you're incredible jealous that we've already watched tonight's amazing episode (twice!) but because we're generous, we've got special treat for all you Rosewood fans. We chatted with executive producer Joseph Dougherty to get all the inside scoop on what's coming up in the second half of this mind-blowing season.
Plus, in order to find out exactly what you wanted to know about the winter premiere, we hopped on Twitter and picked 10 of your most burning PLL questions. Read on for spoiler-filled answers about Pretty Little Liar's heart-pounding romances, jaw-dropping twists and more!
1DFREAK19: Are the liars happy that Alison is alive? If not why?
We'll let Aria's (Lucy Hale) opening line speak for itself: "We just found out that Ali is alive, she's really alive. Why am I not insanely happy?" They liars are definitely peeved to find out that their former best friend has been alive and kicking for the past two years. Many of them are not sure whether or not they can trust Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) pleas for help, especially since she has been lying to them for such a long time.
CarynDeb: Will we find out any big secrets in the premiere?!
There are plenty of big secrets in tonight's premiere, but we'll tell you about our favorite one: Ezra (Ian Harding)—aka our newest evil mastermind—reveals to Aria that he has a new lair in the woods. This cabin has everything that A could ask for: It's secluded, there's no internet or cell service, and it's creepy as hell. Oh and don't forget to keep an eye out for the scary secret basement. Two words: Aria, run!
Flawlesstreegan: Are Spencer and Toby going to kiss like even once in 4b?
Of course they will. Spoby fans are in for a super sweet reunion embrace as well as an adorable Hastings house kiss in tonight's episode. Bonus Scoop: Toby (Keegan Allen) is really starting to follow in Spencer's (Troian Bellisario) Nancy Drew footsteps because he has really stepped up his Radley/mother mystery game.
HibaZdJonas: Are the girls from Pretty Little Liars gonna doubt that Ezra is A?
We'll go ahead and let our friend and executive producer Joseph Doughtery answer this one for you: "You do not know all of Ezra's secrets at this point and you don't know all of his motivation. Right now the audience knows more than the girls do, and you're going to have to deal with the girls getting to the point where they know what you know and what they're going to do about it."
Pfvrmanuca: Are we are going to see any flashbacks? And Alison scenes?
Nope! Sorry to break your PLL-loving hearts but we're not getting any flashbacks or Alison scenes. However, you will get plenty of information as to just how bizarre Mrs. DiLaurentis has become since her daughter's "death."
SleepntheHrding: Is the Ezria love scene sincere or does he have crazy eyes during it?
Whoa, who told you about that?! You sneaky Ezria fans are always one step ahead. Even though you won't technically be witnessing a "love scene," you will be seeing plenty of crazy eyes from our favorite two-timing teacher. Harding is absolutely flawless at portraying Ezra's seemingly conflicted emotions and Dougherty reveals that the actor is having "a tremendous amount of fun" with all of Ezra's new secrets.
Jadecutiewall: Tell us anything Emison (Emily/Alison) please!!!
Prepare yourselves, Emison fans because Emily will be going on a rollercoaster ride of emotions in tonight's premiere. From disbelief to frustration and a whole lotta anger, we'll see Emily tackle her feelings about Alison's return with ferocity and strength. Oh and did we mention that she reveals intimate details of her past with Ali to Paige (Lindsey Shaw)? The secrets are coming out y'all.
CharlotteMaes1: Can u tell us something about Mona and Ezra talking together?
It's wickedly wonderful! You'll see that Mona (Janel Parrish) is starting to recognize that there could be another double agent in Rosewood. Dougherty explains, "I think Mona thinks they're both working for the same person, but that might be ego on her part. She wouldn't want to admit anything and she probably thinks, 'Oh, I'm smarter than him, I couldn't be working for him.'" Their mini-coffee date is extremely tense, calculated and conniving. We definitely want to see them sharing more scenes together.
ChloeJennigns: Will we have real answers in the first episode of the B part?
Yup! You'll find out the real answer as to what Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) want to do with his relationship with Hanna (Ashley Benson). We're not going to give away all the details, but we want you to be prepared for what's ahead so take our advice and have a box or two of tissues nearby.
Kalli_mak: How many Ezria kisses?
You'll officially see three steamy lip-locks, but there's also a very rustled -bed in the episode so who knows how many smooches those two will actually share…
Pretty Little Liar's Winter Premiere airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC Family!
