Fan sites have been buzzing with speculation about whether the Pretty Little Liars special edition Halloween episode will be entirely in flashback, but showrunner Marlene King took it to Twitter to set the record straight:

“The Halloween episode is not a flashback. It is a prequel and we learn so much.”

This is good news, PLLers! A prequel episode is even better than a flashback episode –– less over-exposed grainy film, and more than one character’s point of view! Now Marlene just needs to tell us if the episode will actually take place on Halloween night, in which case Spencer (Troian Bellisario) will finally have a chance to take her obsession with Jodhpurs to the next level and dress up like Tobey Maguire in Seabiscuit.

Catch a new episode of PLL tonight at 8 ET/PT on ABC Family!
