Way before Toby went MIA and Spencer joined the “A” team, Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King tweeted a series of Season 3 finale script sneak peeks for our speculating pleasure. They didn’t mean much to us at the time, but now that we have the rest of Season 3 under our belt, we’ve decided to give them a second look. What can we guess about the finale from these glimpses?
“His definitive tone gives Hanna goose-bumps.”
We’re guessing this has something to do with the as-of-yet unresolved skulking Detective Wilden storyline. We’re not sure what Wilden was up to in the last episode, but he didn’t look happy the last time we saw him. He seems desperate to find his car Hanna pushed into the lake. Is Wilden the one with a “definitive tone”? Is he threatening Hanna again?
“She leans her head into his chest. This feels like home.”
We’re between an Aria/Ezra scene and a Hanna/Caleb scene for this one. Last we saw the, Aria was quite hesitant about continuing things with Ezra despite her feelings for him. As for Haleb, they are still going strong and, given the aforementioned Wilden situation, Hanna could do with some comforting.
“She gives him the slightest of kisses on the cheek, letting her body lightly brush up against his.”
Our money is on Ezria for this scene. Though the last snippet could be interpreted either as a comforting or a breakup scene, this excerpt feels more like the latter. Given the slightly awkward way in which Ezra took Aria’s quasi-breakup with him, we’re guessing things are still a bit hesitant between them. Is this a goodbye kiss?
“Spencer adjusts her eyes to get a better look. There it is again. A wisp of that now infamous-”
Infamous what, Marlene?! Oh, how you toy with us. Now that we know Spence is on the “A” team, this could be anything. Perhaps she is talking about the now infamous red coat? We know that Spencer meets Red Coat in this episode. Maybe this scene comes earlier in the episode, when Red Coat is still playing hard-to-get.
“Emily creeps up to the house. She peeks in a window. Through a narrow slit in the curtain, she sees-”
We love how Emily has totally stepped up to fill Spencer”s Nancy Drew shoes. What is Emily up to in this excerpt? Is she still trying to find Toby or is convinced now that he’s dead? Perhaps she is suspicious of Spencer’s behavior and follows her to an “A” team meet-up? Or, maybe, the mysterious Shana is back in focus? We know she texted Emily in the last episode. Could she come into play in the finale?
“He brings it to Spencer. When he hands it to her, their fingers touch.”
We’re really hoping this is a Spoby moment! It has to be, right? Even if Spence discovers that Toby is still alive, things are going to be a bit awkward. Maybe we’ll have to make due with finger-brushing for a while. And what do you think is being handed to Spence? Her complimentary “A” team cell phone? Creeping 101: A Guide to Stalking?
“It’s the kind of hotel room where you stay when you’re on the way to somewhere else.”
Does Rosewood have any other kind of motel? This also feels like a potential “A” team meet-up scene. We know “A” has used creepy motels as part of her lair network in the past. We are kind of hoping this has something to do with the previous sneak peek so that Toby and Spencer can reenact the Scrabble and spooning scenes from Season 1.
