One of the "A" clues fans were most fixated on before the big reveal was the episode tag on Season 2, Episode 6: “Never Letting Go” that showed "A" buying the same boots Dr. Sullivan had been wearing. For a while, it even sparked suspicion that the doctor might be involved with "A."
But then Mona (Janel Parrish) was revealed to be "A" in the Season 2 finale, and fans were left wondering what the boots were all about. Some clever fans came up with the theory that Mona had bought the boots as part of the trick that made the Liars think she'd buried Sullivan. And now showrunner Marlene King has confirmed that those fans are absolutely right.
Recently, a fan asked Marlene, "Will the boots Mona ordered/Maya wore ever come into play?"
Marlene replied, "they were on the Dr Sullivan mannequin Mona buried and PLLs dug up in season 2A finale."
So there you have it, PLL fans. The mystery of the boots put to rest at last.
Catch an all-new Pretty Little Liars when Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, June 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
