From all accounts, the Season 3 finale of Pretty Little Liars is going to be epic, but will it be the “most shocking episode” ever? Janel Parrish (Mona) seems to think so, and since Mona is usually one step ahead of us, we’re going to take her word for it!
“This is the most shocking episode we’ve ever had,” Janel told TV Line. “Each season, we up the ante just a little bit and it gets more and more shocking.”
Janel was talking about the multiple “A” team member reveals (including Red Coat herself) set to happen in tonight’s episode. She said she was shocked by the reveal, but because everyone in Rosewood is a suspect at one point or another, this person has been suspicious before.
“It will be one of those things where you kind of suspected that person, but you’re still shocked that’s where they went with it,” said Janel. We hope so! We love a good PLL shocker.
Are there any shockers in Mona’s future? Janel said she definitely doesn’t know everything that Mona is up to, but has an idea of where the character is headed: “Our producers keep things close to the vest… But I have a pretty good idea of the master plan when it comes to Mona and the ‘A’ Team from bits and pieces that I’ve gathered and from hints that I’ve gotten from the writers.”
That makes one of us, Janel! Every time we think we have this show figured out, they throw us a curveball. And, it sounds like Pretty Little Liars won’t be taking it easy on us headed into the new season.
“We just started shooting Season 4 last week,” said Janel, “and it’s even better than anything we’ve done before! Our writers are amazing and they just keep making it better and better.”
We wouldn’t have it any other way!
