If you thought all that was crazy, things are only looking to get more complicated for our favorite Rosewood residents. The cast recently graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly
, where the producers and actors spilled the beans on some of what's to come as season three draws to a close.
WARNING: spoilers below this point! Look away if you don't want some teases for the rest of this season!
Spencer Goes to Radley ... and Not for a Visit
Spencer has been having an extraordinary run of bad luck lately, ever since she found out Toby is a card-carrying member of the 'A' team. But could Spencer be so unlucky as to end up in Radley Sanitarium, Mona's former paper mache workshop? (At least she'll be able to go in and out whenever she pleases considering that institution's security levels.) Photos from the March 5 installment of the series seem to point in that direction.
"As tortured as she's been in the first half of this cycle, she's even more tortured in the last half," showrunner Marlene King told Entertainment Weekly.
If you want to brush up on your Hollywood history, writer Maya Goldsmith tweeted
a picture of actress Frances Farmer. What does that have to do with our favorite liars? The golden age Hollywood starlet was institutionalized in a mental hospital. When initially arrested, she was carried away by police while shouting, "Have you ever had a broken heart?" Sound familiar?
Red Coat is Revealed
A blonde in a mysterious red coat has been popping up repeatedly this season. But red coat has been around since the show revealed Mona was on the 'A' team. Red coat has been showing up with more regularity this season, and the producers assure we'll find out her true identity by the end of the season.
Spencer will be facing down this mysterious red coated stranger in the season finale, who might not be a stranger after all. Executive producer Oliver Goldstick told EW red coat was "who you think it might be." Anyone want to start a betting pool on CeCe?
Characters are Going to Die
Death is coming to Rosewood, and it's going to be taking several characters. In tonight's episode, the official Pretty Little Liars Facebook page
has promised another character is about to bite the dust. But the carnage doesn't stop there.
The finale might also see a dead body and will definitely feature a fire. (The Rosewood fire department must never sleep.) "There's a moment where people will believe there's a dead body, and there may be one," actress Troian Bellisario told EW.
What's the story behind Spencer in Radley? Who's red coat? And which characters will we be saying RIP to by the end of the season? Share your theories in the comments!!
