Pretty Little Liars Burning Question: Who Wielded the Blowtorch at the End of Episode 17?

Pretty Little Liars Season 3, Episode 17: “Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Inferno” ended on an especially creepy note, with a character in the iconic red coat using a blowtorch on a figurine clearly meant to represent Hanna (Ashley Benson).

So, what can we learn about the person in red from this clip?

It's a woman. Unless the character is a man with very small hands, it seems this figure is definitely a woman.

She's white. This is self explanatory. The hands were not only white, but pretty pale.

She was wearing bright pink nail polish. This seems worth noting.

So, who could it be? We know Meredith (Amanda Schull) is supposed to be locked up, so it seems like she's ruled out. Earlier in the episode, CeCe (Vanessa Ray) was wearing much paler pink nail polish, which makes us think it's not her (though she could have re-painted her nails).

What other suspicious women are left? Obviously, there's Mona (Janel Parrish), though at this point there's no reason to think she ever wears the red coat. There's also Melissa Hastings (Torrey DeVitto), but we feel like she doesn't normally look that pale, and bright pink doesn't seem her style. While you never know on this show, Paige (Lindsey Shaw) appears to be a good guy.

Then, of course, there's Jenna (Tammin Sursok), who's conveniently MIA these days, and Alison (Sasha Pieterse), or her potential twin.

We're leaning towards the Ali theory, but there are plenty of other options. Who do you think it was?
