To get all the scoop on what’s coming up when Pretty Little Liars' fourth season returns, E Online chatted with the original “A,” the lovely Janel Parrish, and she filled us in on all the “shocking” storylines, whether or not Alison is alive, and the sneaky new schemes that Mona is planning.
First things first, can we trust Mona anymore? In the summer finale we saw that she was having a secret meeting with Shana, so this could mean that Mona’s truce with the liars has expired. Parrish explains that Mona always has tricks up her cute designer sleeves.
"As we saw in the finale, Mona is kind of back in the A suspect list even though the girls thought they could trust her. She doesn’t like that she has been squeezed out by the inner circle again and so she is going to start hanging out with a different group," Parrish reveals. "The person that she starts hanging out with is kind of a shocker in her storyline but she’ll start hanging out with somebody and maybe make a love connection that fans will be surprised about."
Mona’s getting a boyfriend! The PLL star says she’s excited to finally get a fella to romance on the show. “Mona gets a love interest, finally; I think she deserves one! And it’s kind of a shocking one, so I think fans will love it.” Let’s start throwing out our guesses! Could it be Lucas? Wren? Jason DiLaurentis? The possibilities are endless considering Rosewood is packed with devastatingly handsome guys.
Like most fans, Parrish was extremely shocked and intrigued to find out that Ezra could be the “A” team leader, the actress does not think that Mr. Fitz is a sociopath. She stresses, “He’s not a sociopath, no. Ezra is extremely smart and you’ll find out more about his reasoning for things and you’ll find out more about that storyline when we come back, but absolutely Ezra is not a sociopath.”
The star continues, “Ezra was the world’s most perfect boyfriend and a perfect, loyal leading man. So to take that and twist that into the idea that he might actually be this master villain is shocking. I think a lot of teenage girls across American are heartbroken, but I think it’s a super, supersmart plot twist and it’s making people want to come back in for next season and that is exactly what we want.”
And speaking of next season, Parrish tells us that she is most excited for fans to learn more about Alison DiLaurentis and whether or not she has been alive this entire time. "I’m very excited for them to find out more about Alison and why she’s been hiding and all these things because we’re going to dig deeper into that storyline as soon as we return." Hiding hmm? She’s alive!
Fans should definitely tune into the annual PLL Halloween special because that episode is going to filled to the brim with mind-blowing moments. “It’s just going to get crazier and crazier, as the pieces of the puzzle start coming together. “A” is going to be even more of a mastermind than anybody ever imagined so yeah, it’s going to get crazier.”
