Pretty Little Liars took things to a whole new level in this week’s Halloween episode (Season 3, Episode 13: “This Is a Dark Ride”) … a dark-and-twisted, traumatizing level.

Poor Aria (Lucy Hale) was locked in a crate with Garrett’s (Yani Gellman) dead body and then nearly pushed off a moving train by what sounded like one mystery male and one mystery female. But the tiniest Liar escaped her fate with the help of one very sharp Phillips head screwdriver … and the muscles of her three besties.

So how long before the wounded person (and his or her partner in crime) is brought to light?

TVLine talked to PLL executive producer Oliver Goldstick about just that, and he promises that the duo won’t remain a mystery for too much longer.

“You’ll have an idea of it in the Season 3b opener. Remember, Aria stabbed somebody. She hit flesh with that screwdriver, and there’s a payoff in the premiere,” Oliver said.

So someone is walking around Rosewood with an injured hand that we’re guessing they aren’t too good at hiding. Who do you think it will be? And are they a part of the “A” team or just some poor bystander who got roped in by Mona (Janel Parrish)?

Catch the return of PLL Season 3 on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
