What was in Wilden’s trunk that caused the Liars to react with such horror? Well, actually, nothing. On the day of shooting, the trunk was empty, explained Troian: “When we shot the scene, there was nothing in the trunk...We were looking at nothing in the trunk, and I said to Marlene, ‘I just have to know. I’m an actor. Tell me what’s in the trunk so I can imagine it.’ And she said, ‘It’s pretty close to your worst nightmare.’
Troian has since gone on to film Season 4, which picks up moments after the Season 3 finale ends. Did the actual contents of the trunk live up to Marlene’s vague description? Troian said: “When we shot the scene picking up with the season premiere where you see what’s in the trunk, she wasn’t far. It’s pretty awful.”
Pretty close to our worst nightmare? That seems to point towards the reveal of another dead body in Rosewood. Could it be Cece, who skipped town after being bullied by Wilden? Or perhaps Jason who was last seen nursing his wounds after an elevator accident nearly killed him? Or could it be Wilden himself, who has connections to the dangerous “B” Team?
What do you think is in the trunk? Let us know in the comments below!
