Should we just rename the show Pretty Little Suspects?!
After finally unmasking "A," last season, fans were left wondering what Pretty Little Liars' big new mystery would be, and last week's premiere did not disappoint. We've got a new murder mystery on our hands and EVERYONE is a suspect. Even the Liars!
At the end of the premiere, we learned Charlotte (aka "A") was killed, and the police are asking all four of our girls—Emily (Shay Mitchell), Aria (Lucy Hale), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario)—to stay in Rosewood, just in case they have any questions. Ruh-roh!
So, does the cast already know who did the bad deed?
"No!" Shay Mitchell revealed to E! News when we caught up with her at Toshi's Penthouse inside the Flatiron Hotel in New York City, though she did admit, "I have a couple of ideas that I've tossed around."
While she wouldn't spill any of her predictions, Mitchell did hint at WHEN we'll find out who the killer is: "I think that by the end of this season...you will find out." When we chatted with showrunner Marlene King about the new mystery prior the season premiere, she teased it would be very "twist-turvy," so PLL fans can expect a lot of curveballs during this investigation.
But is the killer the new big bad we've heard so much about? We don't know much about the villain just yet, but Bellisario recently warned, "It's no longer about 'I'm going to expose some secret that you have,' it's paranoia, it's blackmail, it's a life-threatening situation." Meanwhile, King added, "It's life or death."
To hear more PLL scoop from Mitchell, like what we can expect to see happen in Emily's love life this season, press play on our interviews with the gorgeous star above!
PLL airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Freeform.
