Beware, Rosewood parents — “A” is after you! As hinted in the Pretty Little Liars Season 4 premiere, “A” has set her sights on the Liars’ parents this season. How far will she go to get the Liars to do what she wants? PLL showrunner Marlene King talked to TVLine about “A”’s plan.

“‘A’ decides that he or she has not been able to divide and conquer the Liars as desired,” Marlene explained. “So, in addition to targeting them, ‘A’ is really going to put targets on the backs of their parents. They’re all under ‘A’s thumb because of it. A big part of the mystery revolves around the Marin family.”

Yikes! “A” has toyed with the Rosewood parentals before, but it sounds like she is upping her game this season. She went after Ashley Marin in Season 4, Episode 1: “A is For A-L-I-V-E” by planting her cell phone in Wilden’s casket. “A” even managed to use Toby’s dead mother against him, promising Tobes that she would reveal the truth about his mom’s death in exchange for the mobile lair. This girl is good.

In other news, PLL is casting for the part of Travis, “a high school-aged gas station employee who possesses a ‘reserved and rugged’ quality and a ‘solid and moral’ center.” Sounds like love interest material. Who might the lucky Liar be? Our money is on Hanna. It hurts our hearts to say it, but with Caleb leaving after the Halloween ep to start on Ravenswood, the timing makes sense.

Are you as worried about the Rosewood parents as we are? And what do you make of this Travis character? Let us know in the comments below!
