Talking about the big A reveal, Sasha Pieterse, who essays Alison in the teen drama, told People that the finale will be dark and twisted.

"It's not something that you would expect or even that the viewers would be like, 'Oh, that makes sense,'" Pieterse said of the #BigAReveal in the Pretty Little Liars Season 5 finale. "It's actually very dark, especially for this kind of TV show. I enjoy it, and I think it's got great places to go, and I know the writers are having a ball continuing writing for the sixth season and planning for the seventh season. We're very lucky, and I think the fans, it's literally going to blow their minds."

But the biggest shock will come when Big "A" is unmasked, said Pieterse, adding that it's more disheartening and sad than shocking.
