Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellisario: The Black Swan Is “Too Close to Home for Spencer”

One of the most highly anticipated moments coming up on Pretty Little Liars Season 3 is the unveiling of the Black Swan’s identity. We already know that we’ll find out who she is in Season 3, Episode 4: “Birds of a Feather,” and Troian Bellisario (Spencer) recently divulged some more clues about who wore that mysterious costume.

Wetpaint Entertainment recently visited the PLL set, and Troian spilled on Spoby, Wren, and new characters. But on the topic of the Black Swan’s unveiling, she said, “I think it will be quite shocking … It will definitely surprise you and it will not be what you expect.”

That's about what we thought she'd say. But here’s where it gets interesting. Troian also said the Black Swan’s identity is “something that was a little bit too close to home for Spencer." Who is tall, thin, brunette, and close to Spencer’s home? Melissa Hastings (Torrey DeVitto)!

Of course, if Melissa is indeed the Black Swan (check out a side-by-side comparison here), that means that she’s been faking her pregnancy by now-deceased ex-fiancé Ian (Ryan Merriman). Why would she pretend she was pregnant in the first place? To appear innocent?
And is there anyone else who fits the "tall, thin, brunette, and close to Spencer’s home" bill? Share your own theories in the comments!

Catch an all-new episode of PLL on Tuesday, June 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
