The Pretty Little Liars Season 3 winter season doesn't start airing until January 8, 2013, but production on the Season 3 finale is far enough along that showrunner Marlene King is confident about how it's turning out.

How confident? Well, her latest tweet makes it sound pretty darn good.

"This finale feels like a 60 minute movie," Marlene tweeted today. "Big and Bold!"

60 minute movie? Yes please!  And are we the only ones who are glad Marlene finished that tweet up with "big and bold" instead of something like "dark and twisty" or "shocking and heartbreaking"?

We expect the finale to pack a punch, but is it possible this one will be slightly less devastating than the Season 2 finale, which ended with Mona (Janel Parrish) being evil and Maya (Bianca Lawson) dead — not to mention the Season 3 summer finale, where we found out about Toby Cavanaugh (Keegan Allen)? As much as we enjoy the way PLL can stomp all over our hearts, we kind of hope so.

Does this tweet make you more excited for the finale, or do you want something more concrete to go off of?
