The Pretty Little Liars aren’t clear of the text messages just yet in this new still from the season four premiere.
In “A is for A-l-i-v-e,” the Liars are desperate to uncover what new scheme “A” has in store for them in the wake of the lodge fire, and have no choice but to turn to Mona (Janel Parrish) for answers, now that she is also being targeted.
Aria (Lucy Hale) struggles with seeing Ezra (Ian Harding) in the wake of their breakup, and Emily (Shay Mitchell) starts to make plans for life after high school. Meanwhile, “A” sets Toby (Keegan Allen) on a new path, what’s in the trunk is revealed, and a shocking discovery reverberates through Rosewood.

In a new interview with ET, Ashley Benson and show runner Marlene King opened up about the transition for the couple.
“I was so sad,” Ashley, 23, shared. “This is the thing, I’m so happy for Tyler, he deserves it so much, but he’s like my other half! He’s just amazing. When the day comes to shoot his last scene, I’m not going to be able to do it. I mean, I don’t want to give him away to these other people.”
She added, “But, I talked to Marlene about [how Caleb will be written off PLL] and I’m excited for people to see that because I’m pretty happy with how she told me their story would end.”
Marlene revealed of the couple’s ending, “Hanna and Caleb are such a great couple and we’ve designed this beautiful Casablanca moment for them. Hanna really gives Caleb permission to leave Rosewood and, basically, go to this other show [laughs]. I hope our fans embrace it as much as we’ve embraced it as writers. That’s important to us.”
HOW WOULD YOU WRITE Hanna and Caleb’s goodbye scene?
Thanks to our pals at THR, we’ve got one and the new season picks right up where it left off — what is in that trunk?
“When we shot the scene there was nothing in the trunk,” Troian Bellisario told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “When I say we know nothing, we were looking at nothing in the trunk. I said to [creator Marlene King] … ‘I just have to know, I’m an actor. Tell me what’s in the trunk so I can imagine it.’ And she said, ‘It’s pretty close to your worst nightmare.’”
She continued, “But when we shot the scene, picking up with the season premiere where you see what’s in the trunk. She wasn’t far [off]. It’s pretty awful.”
