Veronica Hastings (Lesley Fera): Mother. Wife. Workaholic. She’s played some pretty powerful roles in the Pretty Little Liars world as Garrett’s defense attorney and the mother of potentially evil spawn Melissa, but we know her best as Spencer’s judgmental but loving mother. Will we be seeing much of her in Season 4?

Yes. Yes, we will. “Veronica will have her hands full,” PLL  writer Bryan Holdman tweeted yesterday.

Sounds like business as usual for Rosewood’s resident workaholic. She’s always busy with something, but we wonder if the full hands Bryan refers to will be Liar-related. In Season 3, Episode 23: “I’m Your Puppet,” Veronica confessed to Spencer that she saw Ali sneaking back into a Hasting house sleepover a few weeks before she was killed. Ali was teary-eyed, bloody-lipped, and clinging to a secret. Could she have more information about Ali’s death?

There’s also the possibility that Veronica’s busy schedule could have to do with her daughters. Spencer is recently returned from a mental health hospital and Melissa is pretty much always a handful. We think seeing Spencer in so much pain really shocked Veronica as to the depths of Spencer’s troubles (even if she doesn’t understand “A” is behind it). Maybe she will devote more time to being a mother this season?

Another possibility is that Veronica will have a larger workload. Toby was left in the Rosewood forest with the lighter that presumably started the lodge fire by his side. Has he been framed for arson? If so, would Spencer be able to convince her mother to take on his case? Toby doesn’t exactly have a clean record working for him. If he is going to slip the “B” Team’s noose, then he is going to need a lawyer as good as Veronica Hastings.

What do you think Veronica will be up in Season 4? Let us know in the comments below!
