Caleb is back and looking hotter than ever. OK, so we already knew Caleb was returning from Ravenswood in the 100th episode, but it’s different to actually see the promo pic, you know? We also couldn’t help but notice how fine Caleb is looking with the shorter hair and determine gaze. Might Caleb be directing his fearsome stare at Travis, his competition for Hanna’s heart? Because it looks like Hanna is holding Caleb back from doing something unwise in this photo.
Alison awkwardly returns to school. Everything is mega-awkward in this promo photo, which shows Ali making her way into Rosewood High as everyone stares at her. The art of subtlety is apparently lost on this student body.
Are the Liars in a fight? Right now, things are tense between the Liars and Ali, and it seems like it won’t be getting much better before the 100th episode. In this pic, we see Ali standing in front of the Liars. Though Aria has a smile on her face, Emily and Spencer are looking less-than-enthused to see their former bestie and Hanna looks downright upset. Why so glum, Han? Is this after the rumored Ali/Caleb kiss?

Mona’s Army is up to something. Is it just us or do Mona and Lucas look like they have their scheming caps on in this pic that shows them sharing a look presumably as Ali approaches the school? We’re guessing they’ve already collected the pigs blood and have it ready to dump over Ali as soon as she lingers in one spot for too long. Things seem even more intense in this shot, which shows Mona’s entire army gathered together. Watch out, Ali!
Paige and new girl Sydney are pals. Paige and hot new swim team member Sydney seem to be hanging out in this pic, which is also a reaction shot to Ali’s return. Are these two teammates, friends, or something more? And how does Sydney feel about Ali’s return? Does she even know the former mean girl?
We get another Mona/Ali confrontation. After the last episode, we’re eager for many more Mona/Ali showdowns in future, and it looks like we’ll be getting one in the 100th episode. In this photo, we see Mona and Ali sharing a tense chat in a darkened room.
Hanna and Travis are still a thing. Despite Caleb’s return, Travis and Hanna seem to be doing well in this promo photo which shows the two looking into each other’s eyes with their arms around one another, as Lucas stands nearby. Is he stalking them or were they having a conversation? Hopefully the latter — we miss the friendship between Lucas and Hanna!

Group hangout, including Ezra! Guys, we’re going to get a scene with all of the Liars, Ali, Ezra, Toby, and Caleb all together. In this snapshot, we see the gang gathered together to watch something on the TV. Whatever they’re watching looks distressing. Perhaps it has something to do with the girl buried in Ali’s grave? And can we talk about the fact that Ezra seems to be part of the gang again?
Emison is getting closer. In both the group shot and this one of just Emily and Alison, the two are holding hands. Sure, it seems to be in a comforting manner more than a straight-up romantic one, but still. These two seem awfully close.
Jenna is back and in cahoots with Mona’s Army? In this photo, we see Jenna looking calculating in what seems to be the same setting as Mona’s Army’s team meeting. With Shana’s death, we can only imagine how ready Jenna is to seek revenge on Ali and the Liars. We were worried about what Mona’s Army might do before, but now we’re seriously concerned for Ali’s well-being.
