Not according to showrunner Marlene King. When a concerned fan asked her not to make Maya evil, Marlene assured them, "The Maya reveal did not suggest she is a bad guy. It was meant to suggest she knew something. More 2 come."

Catch an all-new episode of PLL on Tuesday, July 31 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
