With the third season of Pretty Little Liars now behind us — we may never recover from that game-changing finale — HollywoodLife.com is looking back on what made this past season the show’s most intense one yet. From the reveal of Toby as “A” to the unmasking of Alison as the girl in the red coat, we’re counting down the 10 moments we’re still wrapping our heads around.
The 10 Biggest Season 3 Shockers (In Order Of When They Happened):
Melissa fakes her pregnancy! There’s a reason Melissa took so long to have her baby — She was only pretending to be pregnant!
Ezra has a son! As if there weren’t enough obstacles for Aria’s relationship with Ezra, she discovered he has a love child with his high school girlfriend. She tried to babysit him twice, but the first he ended up in the hospital, and the second time he got kidnapped. Needless to say, her babysitting days are over.
Maya’s killer is revealed! We’ll never get over the death of Maya, but seeing Nate brought to justice — and killed by Emily, no less — certainly helped to dull the pain.
Toby is “A!” Just when we thought Toby was the ultimate boyfriend, he was revealed to be the ultimate double-crosser! Regardless of why he joined the “A” team, he committed some truly heinous acts while wearing that trademark black hoodie, so can he ever be trusted again?
Garrett is killed! We all know everyone in the N.A.T. club has a permanent target on their backs, but we never expected Garrett to fall victim to “A.” Even the police aren’t safe in Rosewood!
Meredith tries to kill Aria! We all knew Meredith was a sociopath, but a murderer? Byron really knows how to pick his mistresses.
Aria kisses Wesley! Or maybe Wesley kissed Aria, I’m not really sure. Either way, Aria locked lips with her boyfriend’s little brother, and you know that’s going to come back to bite her in the butt — as all things do in Rosewood.
Hanna’s mom runs over Wilden! We all know not to trust Hanna’s mom with our money, but now we know not to trust her behind the wheel either! Lesson: Never sleep with Ashley Marin; she will leave you for dead in the woods.
Toby is dead! No wait, he’s alive! Finding “Toby”‘s body in the woods was enough to drive Spencer straight to the nuthouse, but learning he was actually alive the whole time? Now that’s crazy!
Alison is revealed as Red Coat! The show’s wildest season yet ended with Alison being exposed as the girls’ mysterious red-coated stalker. But if Ali is walking around Rosewood, alive and well, then who the heck did they bury in season one?
