Another piece of the “A” puzzle may fall into place in Season 4, Episode 3: “Cat’s Cradle.” According to E! Online, the ep will introduce a new character: “a Tim Burton-ish character named Hector Lime, an unkempt sculptor who makes props and statues for horror movies.” The kicker? He specializes in masks!

This little detail would have had intrigued us before the Season 3 finale, but since the reveal that Red Coat likes to wear masks to conceal her true identity, this character seems even more important. Was that Red Coat Ali who rescued the girls from the burning lodge, or was it just Red Coat wearing an Ali mask? Perhaps this Hector Lime holds the answer...

We’re guessing the Liars will be back to playing detectives come Season 4, hopefully with Spencer reinstated as head Nancy Drew (or maybe she and Emily can be co-captains?). Regardless, these girls work best when they are all working together. Will “A” still have a hold on Spencer and Toby? Is Mona on Team Liars now? Perhaps it is a Mona tip that leads the Liars to this mask-maker?

How do you think Hector Prime will come into play in Season 4? Let us know in the comments below!
