Holy cow! Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) is back in Rosewood and turning herself over the police in this sneak peek for Pretty Little Liars Season 5, Episode 2 (“Whirly Girl”). How does Detective Holbrook react to this game-changing development? Read on to find out!

The short clip shows the Liars supporting Ali as she walks into the Rosewood P.D. and up to a shocked Holbrook: “Are you Detective Holbrook?” she asks, obviously tired and maybe a bit unsure that this is the right course of action after all of this time on the run.

“I am,” Holbrook says, letting her take the lead in this conversation. He’s probably trying not to scare her off.

“I think you’ve been looking for me,” Alison continues. “I’m-”

“I know who you are,” Holbrook interrupts. “I’m glad you’re with your friends. Welcome home. I’m guessing you have a lot to tell me. Maybe we can begin with the night you disappeared.”

Ali is officially back in Rosewood, ready to share at least some truth. We knew Season 5 of Pretty Little Liars would be turning over a new narrative leaf with Ali’s return, and seeing it realized is just as great as we imagined it would be. And can we talk about how great Holbrook is? Having someone the Liars trust representing the police is a huge part of why this scene works, and perhaps, even happened. We can’t wait to see the rest of this scene and episode!
