The answer? A resounding yes. Yes, she is. Also, she's the infamous Red Coat the Liars have been looking for. Two questions with one big final moment!
Though, if we're being honest, this twist wasn't really much of a shocker. It certainly had nothing on the Season 4 summer finale's final moments, which made it look like Ezra is "A". After all, fans have been predicting Ali's non-death since before the show started airing, thanks to the book series it was based on, and Season 4 hasn't exactly been subtle about dropping "Ali is alive" clues. They basically hit us over the head with it.
That said, we're not mad. In fact, we're thrilled. We think having Ali around will create an awesome new dynamic for the writers to explore, especially if she's not just hiding the whole times. Our minds are already overwhelmed with all the possibilities of where the show could go from here.
