Everyone knows that Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) is perhaps the most fearsome of all Pretty Little Liars characters. The sassy schemer is clever, cunning, and has highly flexible morals. But how does executive producer Marlene King feel about the Liars’ original nemesis?

In response to one Twitter follower’s shared sentiment that Mona is the best “A” Teamer, Marlene tweeted: “Mona is the queen.  But wait for it.”

Yes! We’re glad Marlene is on the same page as us. Mona is a highly-watchable, super competent character, and we kind of hope she is still pulling the “A” Team strings. We’ve written before about our wish that the mastermind behind the entire “A” operation be a girl, and Mona would be a perfect candidate.

We’re particularly intrigued by Marlene’s implication that we will soon be discovering something about Mona’s power status. Does this mean she has been working for the “A” Team all along, even after she supposedly joined Team Liar? Furthermore, does she know that Ezra is “A”? We’ve seen in this winter premiere sneak peek that Mona and Ezra are somewhat chummy. Does this imply a relationship already formed, or is Mona just trying to get in on the “A” Team action after some time away from it all? Either way, we’re always up for more Mona. Long live the queen!

What do you think Marlene means by her teasing tweet? Is Mona ruler of the “A” Team? Sound off in the comments below!

Catch the Pretty Little Liars Season 4 winter premiere on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
