Pretty Little Liars Speculation: Could Mona Be Working at Odds With the “A” Team?

Mona (Janel Parrish) might be back in black on Pretty Little Liars, but does that mean that she’s working with the “A” team?

Based on a new promo for Season 3, Episode 16: "Misery Loves Company", we’re thinking the answer is … not necessarily.

In the video, Emily (Shay Mitchell) shows up at Toby’s (Keegan Allen) apartment for a little coffee break, when the “A” talk begins. In an interesting moment, Toby gets his serious (and slightly scary) face on to ask if Mona has still been bothering the girls. He even double checks that Emily would tell him if Mona were up to her old games. So either this is all part of Toby’s nice guy act, or he genuinely doesn’t know what Mona is up to.

Could Mona have gone rogue on the “A” team? Stranger things have happened. But if she has broken away, then what’s she doing in a black hoodie? Could Mona be working against her old allies? But why?

All of this is assuming that Toby is the head of the “A” team as opposed to Mona (or someone else). Perhaps Mona and the “A” team have left Toby in the dust, or maybe they’re just working on something that they haven’t told Toby about yet. We have a feeling they’re still in communication though, because in the main preview for next week’s episode, you see Toby telling Mona that he’ll “take care of it.”

Sounds to us like Mona’s in charge. Just sayin’.

Do you think Mona is secretly breaking away from the “A” team?

Catch the next episode of Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
