Lucy Hale (Aria) has always been our go-to girl when it comes to rocking the creepy "I've got a secret" face at the beginning of every Pretty Little Liars episode, but it looks like someone else is stealing the shhh! show. 

We couldn't help but notice that when PLL’s flawless Entertainment Weekly cover was revealed on Feb. 20, Ashley Benson (Hanna) was front-and-center rocking Lucy’s iconic “Shhh!” expression. What gives, EW?

Is Ashley now the breakout star of Pretty Little Liars? Given her flourishing movie career (check out the Spring Breakers trailer), she's not only developing a broader fan base, but she’s also becoming a tabloid favorite thanks to her Hollywood starlet status.

Then again, we're expert overthinkers, so it's possible that Ashley's big "shhh! face" debut was just a last minute decision for the magazine cover and has nothing to do with the girls' stardom. What are your thoughts, PLL fans? Let us know in the comments below!

Catch the next episode of Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
