Is anyone else unsettled by this group of characters together? Are they sharing a scene together? And, if so, what are they up to? If it weren’t for Aria’s presence, we might assume this is a meeting of Villains Anonymous, aka the Rosewood support group for recovering villains. Instead, we’re going to have to assume they are in class or something. (Though, we suppose Aria could be a recovering villain. Nothing on this show would surprise us.)
So, why is Lucas coming back into the fold for Season 5? We don’t have a definitive answer... yet. All we know so far is that, according to Marlene King, “Lucas will leave his bunk beds and head back to Rosewood High,” for the Season 5 premiere. Lucas has been off of the Liars’ radar since he decided to leave Rosewood High and continue his education with homeschooling in mid-Season 3. Does Alison’s return to Rosewood spur his return to public high school — don’t think we haven’t noticed the timing — or is it something else? And is Lucas on the Liars side, or has he always been a much more nefarious force?
