Why in the world is Mona (Janel Parrish) hugging Jason (Drew Van Acker), of all people, in the picture to the right?

We know Mona is released from Radley and returns to Rosewood High this episode, so that explains why she's out and about, and back to wearing prissy sweaters. But since when do she and Jason even known each other, yet alone get along well enough for a full-on embrace?

As we can see in the photo below, this isn't just a case of Mona running up out of nowhere and hugging Jason as part of a crazy plan — they appear to be talking very intensely, too.

What do you think these pictures mean? Do they somehow connect to Jason's mysterious meeting with Lucas (Brendan Robinson) in the Halloween episode (Season 3, Episode 13: “This Is a Dark Ride”)? Share your theories in the comments below.
