The Hollywood Reporter talked to PLL creator Marlene King about the "absolute closure" to the "A" story coming in the Episode 10 finale, plus the five-year time jump that's ahead when Season 6 resumes in the fall. Tuesday's summer finale picks up right from last week. "The Pretty Little Liars are still at prom, and we go from there, like a speeding train," said King.
"A" is revealed, and all of the questions are answered, in "Game Over Charles."
Who killed Toby's mother? Who hit Alison in the head with the rock the night she went missing? Who is Red Coat? Who killed Bethany? Who is the Black Widow? Why has "A" been targeting the PLLs all this time? After years of torture, Alison, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer finally come face-to-face with their tormentor and learn the story of how and why Charles became "A."
Actress Shay Mitchell also told THR, "Fans are going to get their answers, for once and for all, and this isn't a fake. We are serious: You are going to see who ['A'] is." Shay also teased the big changes coming after the time jump. "A lot can happen in five years to each of those girls. [The Liars] may not be together-together the entire time."
Also, King weighed in on the SPOILER that made the rounds that Wren was "A." She simply told THR, "I love that rumor, that's all I'll say — I love Wren." That's not really all she said, though, because she acknowledged that "lots of people" have correctly guessed A's identity. However, that's not the entire story. "The 'who' has been guessed, but the 'how' and 'why'? Not so much."
That's good to hear, since the "A" reveal alone shouldn't be all that's considered important. If that were the case, they could just end the show this week.
