In a new interview with Bullett Magazine, Sasha Pieterse (Alison) reveals something that may be a major turning point in the final two episodes of Pretty Little Liars Season 2.

She says, “At some point, [Ali] will do something that will protect [the Little Liars]. There will be other enemies who will try to trash on them.”

Could this have something to do with Ali reappearing in each of the girls’ lives, the way it looks like she might in tonight’s Season 2, Episode 24: “If These Dolls Could Talk”? We’ve discussed the theory that Ali is in fact still alive, and these “hallucinations” that Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) have had aren’t imaginary at all.

Sasha also offers a much more sympathetic view of Ali. “Alison is very protective of her friends because she has kind of handpicked them. She knows how to handle them, which is of course manipulative, but at the same time, she really does care about them. As much as Alison picks on Hanna, she doesn’t like when other people pick on her.”

Even more interesting: “She’s almost like an older sister.” We’re wondering if Sasha is referring to a possible sisterly relationship to Spencer, just like Jason’s...
