Do you have any scoop on the big revelation in the 100th episode of Pretty Little Liars? –Jon
Which “big revelation” would that be? Because last we checked there will be several, including which guy Hanna will be sticking with for the foreseeable future. Episode 100 marks Caleb’s return to Rosewood, and while we’re all excited for the former Ravenswoodsman’s homecoming, Hanna still has that little matter of Travis to sort out. Something tells me her new man won’t appreciate being dropped like a bad habit. Bonus scoop: Episode 12 will introduce us to Mona’s momma, Leona.
I am in love with the picture! Can’t wait for the PLL 100th episode!
Question: During her Reddit AMA, Marlene King said she wants to do a “Ravenswood episode” on Pretty Little Liars this season. Anything more you can tell me? I miss that spin-off. — Claire
Ausiello: Plans for a Ravenswood-centric episode are indeed underway, but King tells me nothing has been finalized. “I stay in touch with all of those people, both the kids and the adults,” she says. “They know we’d love to — I don’t want to say ‘tie up’ the story — but at least give it some closure. More than we were allowed to, anyway. We were heading somewhere with that story and we want to let the fans know where that was.”
Okay, Marlene—spill! What is Mona up to this season with that army of disgruntled misfits?
Marlene King: We literally have coined that group as “The Mona Army,” and she is now out in the open, not as A, but out in the open assembling a group of people who Alison tormented while she was living in Rosewood. I think that she is hoping to stand united with these people when Alison returns. She’s convincing them that there’s safety in numbers.
Does this mean that she has put her “A” antics behind her?
MK: She says early on at some point in this summer season, “I’m here! I’m out in the open, I don’t need to be A anymore.” So she’s facing her opponent, head-on and very much out in the open.
Was Shana really “A,” or was she merely another minion in the A Team’s huge web?
MK: A lot of those questions are going to be answered this summer. She definitely admitted to starting that fire at the lodge, that was her truth and she admitted to getting justice for Jenna for what Alison and all of those girls did to her and how profoundly it affected the rest of Jenna’a life.
Is it safe to say that she was the same “A” that was on the roof?
MK: That will play out in the next couple of episodes. I don’t want to answer or not answer but I will say that what Ezra whispered to Aria was that it was Shana on the roof. So what he said on the roof in the season four finale—”I know who you are!”—he knew that as Shauna.
Okay we’ve just got to get this off of our chest. Ali and Cece share such a strong—almost sisterly—bond. Could there be another branch on the DiLaurentis family tree?
MK: I love those scenes too and I feel like their connection is very much like that. They have a deeper connection than we have understood on the show and [the season five premiere] was the episode that would allow you to feel that. That was the ultimate sacrifice. Ali gave her the get out of jail free card. We cast her to look alike because we knew it would be a lot of fun to play with that theory and I will just say that there are a few other twists coming down the line with another character that we’re exploring at the same time.
Assuming that Ezra makes a full recover, (fingers crossed!) what is his relationship with the liars going to be like now that they’re all on the same side?
MK: It plays out very organically. He does return to Rosewood, and Ezra knows something that nobody else knows when the girls come back and that’s that they were in New York, they weren’t in Philadelphia. They’re going to have to find their story and they need Ezra to collaborate with that story, so he becomes very organically involved in their lives again.
And how about Aria and Ezra’s relationship?
MK: We know that Ezra and Aria are soul mates, whether they are romantically entwined or not, those two are, somehow, always thrown into situations together.

Tanaya: I know you guys were at the Pretty Little Liars set last week! I want some scoop!
"Ah, we’ve been caught red-handed. Here’s your prize: Not only will Ezra survive from his rooftop battle with "A," but the history buff will also find a way to win back a certain brunette’s affections. Also, on a completely unrelated note, do any of you happen to enjoy key lime pie? Ezria sure does…"
