The Pretty Little Liars Season 3 finale (Season 3, Episode 24: "A dAngerous gAme") ended on a big cliffhanger: What was in the trunk of Wilden's police car? Going into Season 4 we knew it was something bad, because "A dAngerous gAme" ended with the Liars (plus Mona) gasping out loud after opening the trunk. We had plenty of theories about what (or who) it could be. But what's the real answer?
It's a dead pig!
The writers wasted no time wrapping up this cliffhanger. The premiere picked up right where we left off, with the girls reeling from this unpleasant sight. They recoiled in disgust, and then the camera showed us what they were looking at.
It was pretty gross, but not nearly as big a deal was we expected. Though in the end it seems it was was a clue that Detective Wilden was actually be dead, since cops are sometimes called pigs, and as we saw soon after, Wilden is very dead.
Were you shocked by this twist, or disappointed?
