The Season 4 premiere of Pretty Little Liars promises to answer many of our burning questions. Our most anticipated: What (or who) is in Wilden’s Trunk? And: Who is the Queen of Hearts? We know we will be getting answers to both of these riddles on June 11, but what if their answer is one in the same? Here are three reason why we think the Queen of Hearts could be the body inside Wilden’s trunk.
PLL is not exactly known for being generous with answers to its many, many questions, which is why we immediately grew suspicious when we discovered that we would not only discover the contents of the trunk, but also the identity of the Queen of Hearts... all in one episode! It makes a lot more sense that the Queen of Hearts is in the trunk than that, after years of clammy behavior, Rosewood starts revealing all of its secrets.
The timing also makes narrative sense given that we haven’t seen the Queen of Hearts in a while (and definitely not in the time since Wilden’s car has been missing). For someone who was referenced regularly in the Halloween episode and in the second half of Season 3, the Queen of Hearts has been awfully quiet as of late.
We were suitably intrigued with the introduction of the “B” Team in the Season 3 finale, but it also confused the bejesus out of us. How many different clandestine groups are at work in this town? Are they working at cross purposes? And are all of them the Liars’ enemies? The reveal that someone took out the Queen of Hearts would clarify that these groups don’t all belong to one big anti-Liars conspiracy (and we think clarification is something the PLL Powers That Be want). It would also suggest the Liars are not the only targets in town, and that there are potential allies to be found. Though, ideally, one’s allies don’t park incriminating evidence in one’s front yard.
It Would Be Awesome
Not the whole someone being dead part, but the reveal that even the bad guys have bad guys chasing after them. The best answers are the ones that we don’t expect, but still make some sort sense. A Queen of Hearts/Trunk dual reveal certainly fits both criteria. We have to admit: until the tease that the Queen of Heart’s identity would be revealed in the Season 4 premiere, we did not suspect he/she might be in the trunk. But it does make sense. We haven’t seen the Queen of Hearts in a while. He/she is a murderer and murderers often have enemies. And now that we know Rosewood’s bullies aren’t all on one side, no one in town seems safe.
Do you think the Liars will find the Queen of Hearts in Wilden’s trunk in the Season 4 premiere? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments below!
