Everyone was shocked when they found out that Mona was “A” in ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars Season 2 finale but the Little Liar who had to be the most hurt by Mona’s big revelation was Hanna. Wetpaint Entertainment spoke with star Ashley Benson about how Hanna will react to Mona being “A” in Season 3 and who she secretly wants to be working for Mona’s “A” team.

Wetpaint Entertianment: How are things changing now that “A” has been revealed?
Ashley Benson: A lot, because “A” is Mona and she was my best friend. So that’s difficult to deal with. Now Hanna is trying to figure out if it’s her fault, what she did to kind of make Mona turn against her. It’s tough. She’s just trying to figure out answers and what she can do to help now that her friend is in an insane asylum. She doesn’t know what to do, she feels lost. She has her other friends but Mona’s different, and she’s not the person she thought she was.

Why does Hanna go to visit her in the asylum in the Season 3 premiere?
She just wants answers. It’s not even really to rebuild a friendship because it’s kind of done after everything that happened. But yeah, it’s just to find out answers and to see who is all in this because they are still getting tortured by someone else and how can it be [Mona]? She’s locked up. She’s just trying to figure out who she’s working with or what’s going on. I don’t even know if there will be a friendship between them again, we’ll see what goes down, but as for now she just wants answers

Would you like any of the main four girls to be “A”?
I’ve always wanted that. I’ve always wanted my character to be “A.” I think it would be brilliant, the fans wouldn’t like it because it’s obviously not in the books, but I definitely think it would be a cool thing to twist on everyone in the last season. It would be really cool because they’ve been planning and working with all these people and it very well could be Hanna because Mona turns out to be “A” and she has all these people working for her. I don’t know if that will ever happen but if it did that would be really cool.

Are there any flashbacks this season?
There’s a few flashbacks, we actually haven’t shot that many. This episode we do have a few flashbacks which will answer some question about Jason and his dad, and Alison’s whole before she disappeared kind of thing.

Check back later today for more from Ashley Benson, including Lucas’s new role, Haleb’s future, and how the parents will interact with the Little Liars.

Catch an all-new Pretty Little Liars when Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, June 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
