As you may recall, the ninth episode of Pretty Little Liars Season 4 will be directed by none other than Aria’s dad, aka actor/director extraordinaire Chad Lowe. Chad was adorably excited about prep for the ep last week, sharing his enthusiasm on Twitter. Apparently, the excitement hasn’t died since filming on the episode began. Chad shared this dramatic behind-the-scenes snapshot from Season 4, Episode 9: “Into the Deep” last night.

The pic shows the Rosewood set at night, and it features what looks a screen used for lighting. The silhouettes of the crew members breaking down the shoot are cast dramatically against it. The whole scene creates an eerie mood that we hope is present in Chad’s episode.

Or maybe we’re reading this scene all wrong. Could the night be starry and romantic rather than eerie? Because it sounds like Paige (Lindsay Shaw) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) have a big scene in this ep, possibly in the vein of their “I love you”s from the Season 4 premiere. Check out the Twitter chatter between Chad, Shay, Lindsay, and writer Jonell Lennon about the epic scene.

Catch the next episode of Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
