On last night's episode of Pretty Little Liars, Ella (Holly Marie Combs) and Byron Montgomery (Chad Lowe) revealed that Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) can't see each other for a while. Apparently they’re a negative influence on each other and don’t have a healthy relationship. As if that wasn’t bad enough, PLL executive producer Oliver Goldstick revealed that they’ll be separated for four whole episodes. Oh no!

Goldstick explained to TVLine that their separation is "truly an obstacle for them. They’ll be secretly meeting in bathrooms at school, in a darkened theater, and also in the woods.” But by Season 2, Episode 4, they’ll be reunited, which is interesting since the Ian mystery will be solved by then. Based on this clue, we're guessing something will happen to make everyone realize they weren’t lying.

Goldstick continued, “There’s an enormous event that’s a flare that brings them back together. And it even vindicates them a bit." He adds, "By episode five, they’re back on track and allowed to be seen socializing.”

It will be a tough few weeks when the girls are apart, but at least we know they'll be reunited soon!
