Warning: This article contains spoilers for Pretty Little Liars.
It’s been two full months since the season 5 finale of Pretty Little Liars left PLL fans hanging. Sure, we know that Charles is Big A, but what does that mean in the grand scheme of the Pretty Little Liars universe, and who is Uber A? Let’s face it, the Pretty Little Liars season finale may have been a big reveal, but, as usual, that reveal left PLL fans with far more questions than answers.
That’s okay though, because, as showrunner I. Marlene King knows, there’s nothing PLL fans love more than to discuss their favorite mysteries and theories. While this two-month hiatus has had the occasional hints dropped for the more savvy Pretty Little Liars theorists, it seems possible that there hasn’t been anything more tantalizing than this latest PLL sneak peek.
This is undoubtedly the moment for fans of Pretty Little Liars to begin dissecting the clip for clues, some hidden and some plainly obvious. In the clip, Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) has been cleared of the murder of Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) and is making a statement in the hopes of flushing out the whereabouts of A’s dollhouse, where Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) remain trapped.
The most obvious clue for PLL fans comes even before Alison makes her endearing appeal to the public. The reporter at the beginning of this Pretty Little Liars clip reveals that Andrew Campbell (Brandon Jones) has been missing since the girls’ disappearance. Has Andrew been working with Charles all along, helping to lure the liars into a well-laid trap? Perhaps Andrew is Uber A? Could he be the one pulling Charles’ strings?
In a recent interview with People, Sasha Pieterse couldn’t comment on Charles, but she did reveal more about her own character and it seems as though Alison may be a bit more likable in season 6 of Pretty Little Liars. If not likable, at least Alison will be more understandable and that’s almost the same thing. Right, PLL fans?…right?
“Mainly what I’m excited about is to see the progress of what we know about A and also what my character’s going to go through, because she needs some serious help,” Pieterse said. “And I think the fans will enjoy that because you’re going to find out even more about what’s happened to Alison and why she’s gotten to the state of mind that she’s in and why she’s chosen to lie about all these things.”
The Pretty Little Liars season premiere will air Tuesday, June 2, on ABC Family.
