The weather is getting a little chilly on Pretty Little Liars, so perhaps that’s why we haven’t seen a pool in a while. But with the second half of Season 3 picking back up in January, we expect to see the weather warm up at least a little. Or maybe Emily (Shay Mitchell) will take a break from the “A” drama long enough to use the indoor pool? Just a thought.

Pool or no pool, we can guarantee that swimming will be a big topic in 3B thanks to the guest appearance of Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin. But what brings Missy to Rosewood in the first place? Or rather, who bring Missy to Rosewood?

ClevverTV caught up with both Missy and Shay to talk about how Missy gets to Rosewood, and what happens once she arrives. According to Missy, she’s at the airport when she runs into Emily’s friend Shana (Aeriel Miranda), who we all know as the store clerk from Pretty Dirty Secrets. So she befriends Emily? Does this have anything to do with Shana’s “she was my friend too” quote? Was she talking about Maya (Bianca Lawson)? Or Alison (Sasha Pieterse)?

According to Missy, Shana wants her to meet Em, so the pair of them stop by The Brew (aka Em’s place of employment). Shay describes the scene, saying that Emily will be very shocked at Missy’s arrival, and (once she calms down) Missy will share her wisdom and give the swimmer a few tips.

If tips from a gold medalist won’t get Emily back in the pool, we don’t know what will.

What do you expect from Missy’s cameo? And what is with the new friendship between Shana and Emily? That can’t end well, right?
