It’s only been about three months since the season 2 finale of Pretty Little Liars, but just waiting another week for a new episode can be torture. Three months might as well be an eternity after the huge cliffhangers we were left with in the last episode.
All this time has given ME a chance to think about what’s happened on the show and what’s next. With a show so compelling, we obviously have a ton of questions, but we’ve cut it down to eight burning ones we can’t wait to find the answers to.
Don’t forget to join our Tuesday live tweets from @MyEveryzine starting June 5 at 8 p.m. EST to discover some of the answers with ME!
What happened to Maya?
Poor, Em. She’s only been in love twice and both women were murdered. If you’re a die-hard fan, it wasn’t hard to notice the parallels between the discovery of Maya’s body and Alison’s; something showrunner Marlene King said was intentional. Does that mean they were killed by the same person or for the same reason? When Emily went looking for Maya, an employee at the bus station did say he saw her talking to someone in a car with tinted windows. If you ask ME, this has ‘A’ written all over it. Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily, even alluded to the fact that ‘A’ did kill Maya (or at least Emily thinks so) in an interview, saying: “‘A’ has done other things before that have been quite serious, but now you’ve killed somebody who's extremely close to [Emily].”
@_besanches yes, that was intentional.

Have Aria’s parents changed their minds about Ezra?
In the season 3 promo there’s a very sweet moment between Aria and her boyfriend (and former English teacher), Ezra, in what seems to be his kitchen. But when they revealed their relationship to Aria’s parents last season, it didn’t exactly go over well. After her family did everything possible to alienate Ezra and make him go away, it’s hard to believe they’ve changed their minds. Since he left for a short time, him coming back would be a confirmation that he’s still in love with Aria, meaning dear old mom and dad are probably watching her like a hawk. With the way her father reacted to the situation, we have a hard time believing he’ll invite Ezra over for dinner anytime soon, even if he is allowing them to date.
Exactly how close are Spencer and Toby?
Don’t act like you didn’t see that butt grab when they kissed in the promo. Let’s also not pretend that you didn’t replay it three times. After keeping Spoby separated for what seemed like forever, we finally get to see the lovebirds together again. Since Toby’s shirt was off in the preview, Spencer was wearing nothing but a t-shirt and Toby’s hair is wet like he just got out of the shower, how close have they actually gotten? We don’t remember Toby being so frisky during their first relationship, which begs the question—did Spencer lose her V-Card?
What’s up with the teeth necklace Emily receives?
If you blink during the promo, you’ll miss the short shot of a teeth necklace Emily’s holding with a message that reads: “CANT SMILE” with what looks like a canine tooth separating the words. Creepy, right? There are other squares on the necklace, so it could be part of a larger message. We’re wondering whose teeth they are and if they taken from a live person or someone ‘A’ killed? Since ‘A’ is definitely capable of murder, torture wouldn’t be too much of a stretch.
Whose grave is dug up?
In the season 3 promo, the girls stand in front of an empty grave. Our first assumption is that it belongs to Alison, but it could easily belong to Maya or even Ian. If this show has taught us anything, it’s that you never know where this conspiracy is going to turn.
Who visited Mona in the psychiatric hospital at the end of season 2?
Although the main characters don’t seem to know yet, there’s apparently a team of people—not just one—who watch them and send the text messages. According to King, even though she didn’t participate in two things that happened to the girls, Mona is definitely ‘A,’ so whoever visited her at Radley Sanitarium probably wasn’t a shot caller, but definitely a partner in crime. The person was wearing a red coat, like what Alison wore when posing as Vivian Darkbloom to spy on ‘A,’ which seems too obvious of a clue for it to actually be Ali.
Ya all let me make it clear.Mona is A.

Did Garret really kill Allison?
We’re not on Garret’s team or anything, but it’s hard to believe he’s the only one who helped Ian kill Alison (That seems to be the story the police was going with after his arrest). For a girl so young, there were a lot of people who had the motive to murder her, including Spencer’s sister, Melissa, Jenna, Mona and even Alison’s brother, Jason.
Is Ali really dead?
We know, we know. There was a corpse and an autopsy. But stay with us because we’re about to blow your mind. In the books, the girl everyone knows as Alison turns out to be her twin sister, Courtney DiLaurentis, who was sent to an insane asylum. Ali murders her sister in the book series and then goes into hiding. In the Halloween episode, if you look closely during the scene where Jason comes to Ali’s room you can spot a family photo on the wall of him and his twin sisters! Also in the episode, Ali tells a scary story about one twin killing another, which leads us to believe either she either killed Courtney or Courtney killed Alison and is impersonating her. If Alison actually is alive, it would explain how she keeps showing up in supposed hallucinations to help the girls. If they’re both alive, it’s also safe to assume that the person who visits Mona is actually Courtney DiLaurentis. We may soon find some answers because in an interview Sascha Pierterse, who plays Ali on the show, said there’s a situation concerning her character we’ll be introduced to in season 3.
Whether they answer our questions or not (We really hope they do!), this season is sure to be full of the twists and turns all Pretty Little Liar fans love. Plus, it’ll definitely give us more questions to discuss. Do you have any burning questions you’d like to see answered in season 3?
