Each of our Pretty Little Liars have been in danger before, but never have any of them been so close to the brink of death than last night's midseason finale when Spencer (Troian Bellisario) was gunned down by Jenna. In an episode chock full of major moments, it was the biggest. With news that the show is wrapping up once this season comes to a close next year, could Spencer be not long for this world?
Creator I. Marlene King was asked that very question on a conference call with reporters still nursing their OMG hangover from the PLL finale, and what she had to say didn't offer up much in the way of relief. "Spencer, like every other character on the show is—we always say we're equal opportunity punishers, and A is an equal opportunity killer," she teased. "So everybody is always subject to their demise, and it's possible we'll see them in flashbacks."
