For three seasons, fans have speculated that Aria Montgomery is the elusive tormenter “A,” and judging by this new photo, she definitely fits the bill.

With a black hood over her head and a sinister look on her face as she stands behind Mona, she looks like the newest member of the “A” team — or perhaps even “A” herself!

But there’s a catch: this is just a behind-the-scenes photo of Aria’s portrayer, Lucy Hale, goofing off with Janel Parrish, who plays Mona Vanderwaal, and it’s just one of the many featured in the fun “photo diary” that Janel did for!

Though Janel looks much more in “A” mode than Lucy — who actually is wearing a suede black blanket and brown leggings — the caption of the pic, “Lucy wants to be A” is all kinds of perfect.

Of course, they also had to goof around in a non-threatening way! The dynamic duo posed (Janel with duckface, natch) after their “loopy” 7 a.m. call time. It’s a tough job, but someone has to torment the Liars!

Do you think Aria could really be “A,” or will this always just be a fun joke? Click here to check out the rest of Janel’s photo diary over at Glamour, and then hit the comments with your thoughts and theories!
