Season 7 of Freeform's "Pretty Little Liars" premiered last week and more and more people are being added to the list of suspects to be Uber A, the new villain, who wants to find out the person responsible for Charlotte's death.
But could it be one of the Liars? In the past six seasons, Aria, Emily, Spencer and Hanna have often come under the scanner for their suspicious behaviour. And it looks like one of them still could be the villain. "It's always a possibility," showrunner Marlene King told ET in an earlier interview. Actress Lucy Hale added that she never trusts anyone on the show, and Troian Bellisario revealed that she has always been under the impression that Spencer would make a good villain. "I would love it so much, I think it'd be so fun," she said.
King's co-showrunner, Charlie Craig, revealed that one of the Liars being A is something they have considered.
"I will say that question is one we've discussed in the writers' room," Craig shared, adding that the five-year time jump is crucial. "All of the 'Little Liars' could be A," he revealed. "Think of that five-year gap, what could have happened in that five-year gap? We have fun flashbacks to go back and see how Hanna got from here to there â€” and all of them frankly. Those stories, that past will help inform what they're doing now."
The Uber A story will end with Season 7, and the second half of the season will reveal why he/she has been torturing the Liars.
In the meantime, the upcoming episode will deal with the aftermath of Hanna's kidnapping. The episode is titled "Bedlam" and the official synopsis reads: "With the fallout of Hanna's abduction still weighing heavily on the PLLs, the Liars begin to grow suspicious of Elliott Rollins as Ali's condition worsens. Tensions rise between Liam, Aria and Ezra as they work on the book together. Spencer and Caleb are on edge, as neither of them want to talk about the awkward elephant in the room. Meanwhile, Emily receives a disturbing phone call and tries to find a way to see Ali."
