Plus: Is Toby really dead? And who’s the girl in the red coat? Troian gives HollywoodLife.com some major season finale scoop.
With only one episode left on Pretty Little Liars this season — the finale airs March 19 at 8 p.m. — anything is possible, and no one knows that better than Troian Bellisario, who says we have yet to see Spencer’s true side. “Everyone’s been talking about Spencer 2.0 on Twitter, but really, what we’ve been seeing is the old Spencer being burned to the ground,” Troian explains to HollywoodLife.com. ”She was completely annihilated. We still don’t know what’s going to rise from the ashes.”
Naturally, fans are already suspecting that Spencer could re-emerge darker than we know her now — especially after she got that black hoodie last week — and Troian isn’t shooting down any theories just yet.
“A lot of people are wondering if Spencer is the new Mona,” Troian teases. “It was very fun for me to navigate those murky waters, as Spencer has been completely reinventing herself.”
Is Toby Really Dead?
There may be a Toby-looking body at the morgue, but Troian is quick to remind fans not to accept everything at face value — particularly in Rosewood.
“What’s really fun about our show is that there’s always that burning question: Is anybody really dead?” Troian tells me. “There was definitely a body — dressed like him, with his tattoo, who Spencer fully believes was Toby — but she didn’t get to identify him. There’s still a ray of hope for all the Toby fans. The last episode is really going to be about that big moment where we find out if he’s really dead, or if he’s alive… somewhere.
Who’s The Girl In The Red Coat?
The identity of the girl in the red coat is finally revealed on the season finale, and thanks to a first-look photo, we know Spencer is the unlucky liar who comes face-to-face with her. But who is she? Troian won’t say — did you expect her to? — but she does offer some insight that should pique your curiosity.
“I literally had to stop reading the script, and I looked up at [creator Marlene King] and was like, ‘Wait, WHAT?’” Troian recalls from the table read of the finale. “That was my first ‘gotcha’ in the entirety of Pretty Little Liars. It’s going to be a pretty shocking moment for everybody.”
OK, if it was enough to surprise Troian, then you know that reveal is going to be epic.
