“Reunited with these boys @brantdaugherty@brendanrobinson1,” Janel captioned the adorable photo of the three PLLers together. We understand her excitement — it’s not often these three all get to be in one episode, but it looks like Season 5, Episode 1 (“EscApe From New York”) is a lucky exception. We wonder if these characters will all have a scene together? Probably too much to ask, but we’ll take what we can get.
During the Season 4 finale of Pretty Little Liars, we learned that both Mona and Noel knew that Ali was alive. Might Lucas’ inclusion in the Season 5 premiere mean that he was also in on the secret, and helping Ali in some way? Lucas has always seemed to have a lot going on behind-the-scenes. Did he turn homeschool so that he could work as Ali’s more flexible minion?
Or might Lucas’ inclusion in the Season 5 premiere mean the complete opposite. Is he coming back on the scene to set him up as an “A” candidate? He was one of the few characters who Ali didn’t see and threaten the night of her almost-murder. Could he be “A”? Was he the one on the rooftop with the gun? Did he leave Rosewood High to homeschool because Ezra was onto him? No pressure, Season 5 premiere, but we have a lot of questions about these three characters -- perhaps, most of all, Lucas.
What do you think these three will be up to in the Season 5 premiere? Do you think Lucas already knew about Ali’s not-deadness? Sound off in the comments below!
