Pretty Little Liars fans have been super-excited for the return of Season 3’s winter season on January 8, especially after seeing the preview that shows Alison (Sasha Pieterse) visiting Aria (Lucy Hale). When we spoke to Lucy Hale in an exclusive interview yesterday (November 20), she gave us some context for that haunting scene.

According to Lucy, “Aria’s actually sick sick throughout the whole episode,” which makes it all the more difficult to decipher whether or not Alison’s visit is just part of a fever dream or if it’s real. But Lucy did fill us in on what goes down.

“[Aria] has an interaction with Alison, and it sort of reveals a lot,” she said. “The last thing that Alison says to Aria, I can’t tell you what it is, but sort of makes you go, ‘What!?’ A little confusing.”


We have a feeling Ali’s last-minute confession will have something to do with Byron (Chad Lowe) and the tangled relationship we just recently learned about in the Halloween episode (Season 3, Episode 13: “This Is a Dark Ride”).

Does this make you think that all of Ali’s visits over the years have just been hallucinations, this one included? Or could they all be real, considering how valuable they are and how much they reveal to the Liars? Share your thoughts below!
