Warning: watching this sneak peek for Pretty Little Liars will raise your level of anticipation for next week’s Season 4 finale to near unbearable levels. In it, we see the beginnings of a conversation between Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and the rest of the Liars. What is she about to confess?

“Ali, we think your mom’s the one who stole the game from Mona,” Hanna tells Ali gently at the beginning of the 45-second vid. “We think she’s ‘A.’” Alison glances at Spencer, but says nothing.

“You don’t seem surprised,” Emily tells her.

“It’s complicated, Em,” Ali says. Then you better start talking, girl. Your friends (and us) have earned some answers. Ali continues: “I’ve never figured out the right way to tell you what you need to know. I’ve never been able to say the words out loud.”

“Why don’t you start at the beginning,” Spencer suggests. A very good place to start! (Wouldn’t this explanation be great if Ali delivered it in musical form?) They all sit down — the Liars on the couch across from their former best friend — and it’s story time!
