People don’t always stay dead on Pretty Little Liars. We’re four seasons in, and we’re still not sure if the girl whose murder acts as a catalyst for the entire show is actually dead. But what about Rosewood’s latest deceased, Detective Wilden (Bryce Johnson)? Because he’s looking pretty alive in Ian Harding’s (Ezra) latest on-set pic...

No worries, PLLers! This photo is entirely behind-the-scenes, and it is the greatest on-set shot we've seen in awhile. The pic shows Bryce settled in a coffin as Wilden, casually checking his cell phone between takes.

Apparently Ian has been sitting on the spoiler-ific pic since they filmed the Season 4 premiere. “I've been waiting to post this for a while...” he wrote. We appreciate your discretion, Ian.

Much like the Marin girls, we’re not too torn up that creepy Detective Wilden bit the bullet. That said, we are sad we won’t be seeing Bryce around the set any more. This guy’s a hoot! The good news is, it sounds like Bryce isn’t wasting any time moving on to other things. He has already started a Kickstarter campaign for his new project, a psychological thriller short film in which Bryce stars as a man who tries to use lucid dreaming to control his violent nightmares. Best of luck, Bryce!

Are you sad that Wilden will no longer be creeping on the Liars? Are you as intrigued by Bryce’s next project as we are? Let us know in the comments below!
