All in all, the Pretty Little Liars Season 3 finale was a satisfying shock-fest but, as usual, the popular ABC Family drama left viewers craving more, especially with that terrifying cliffhanger at the end in which Aria, Emily, Hanna, Spencer, and Mona stumble a gruesome discovery in Wilden’s car trunk. Oh and whose hand was that crawling its way out of the dirt? Ahh!
We don’t know about you, but we have SO MANY QUESTIONS. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until June 11th when the show returns for some answers because our hero, executive producer Oliver Goldstick, has risen to the occasion again with fresh spoilers about PLL Season 4 and the first episode “‘A’ is for Alive.” Check out what he revealed in an interview with ETOnline below!
On The Gazebo Scene & The Hand in The Dirt: “You’ll get some insight into that moment in episode two. We like to use those moments to plant a pebble that starts a landslide. I mean, how long can you be buried alive before you actually die? Who knows who was actually in the ground — maybe Alison was the one pulling the person out of the pit before getting thrown in there herself. That’s one big question we’re leaving up in the air.”
On What/Who is Stashed Away in Wilden’s Trunk: “We come back minutes later. We’re not doing a time-jump this year. There’s a game changing event because of what’s in that trunk. What is inside that trunk will really send our girls down a different path this year.”
On The Return of a Surprise Rosewood Resident: [Mrs. DiLaurentis] She comes back, alone, and lives in that house. She has a peculiar agenda that the girls cannot figure out. It takes quite a while for the girls to unravel what the hell she’s doing back in Rosewood and what she really wants.” He adds, “Mrs. D gives us a whole new window onto Alison, the summer before she disappeared, the night she disappeared and her relationship with the girls. Remember that flashback of Alison coming in all bloody at 3 a.m. — clearly something big was going on there. All those things contribute to a certain darkness that we will play with next season.”
On Toby’s Double Agent Role: “[...] in season four Toby gets sucked back in to that world in a very juicy way. It’s also very emotional because “A” knows something very emotional in Toby’s past. Don’t forget that Toby has been haunted as well by the “A” of it all. I was not being disingenuous over the years when I said he has an ax to grind with Alison; she sent him to juvie for a year! It took some time for his animosity to melt. Emily was the first to penetrate that, and show Toby that these girls weren’t all mini [versions of] Alison. They were more guilty by association. Then he got to know Spencer, and clearly that was hot. There were sparks.”
