The time for answers is now — the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ summer finale airs tonight, Aug. 11, and Sasha Pieterse spilled to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY juicy spoilers about Alison coming face-to-face with ‘A!’
No more lies! Pretty Little Liars is finally unmAsking the elusive “A” on the Aug. 11 summer finale. “A” will have a face after tonight. HollywoodLife.com talked EXCLUSIVELY to Sasha Pieterse, a.k.a. Alison DiLaurentis, who told us that the big reveal is a “game-changer” and completely “blindsides” Ali. Plus, she revealed that, yes, the summer finale truly “ties everything together.”
This is the episode we’ve been waiting for. After six seasons of guessing, investigating theories and being desperate for clues, the girls will finally see “A’s” face. Sasha tells HollywoodLife.com all about the “important” episode that not only gives the PLL villain a face, but steers the show in a whole new direction.
“Honestly, I think tomorrow’s episode is my favorite episode we’ve done so far,” she reveals. “It’s so intricate. There’s all these details. You find out so much. But also, the actor that plays this character is mind-blowing. They did such a good job at portraying all that Marlene [King] and all of our writers wanted. It was just an honor to be in that episode, honestly. Marlene directed it, and I love the direction they’re taking, and it’s basically reinventing our show. “
The big “A” reveal will definitely have the most impact on Alison. After all, “A” was identified as Charles DiLaurentis, Alison’s older brother. So, how does Alison feel when she sees the face of the person who’s caused so much pain to so many and also happens to be family.
“I think she’s totally freaked out,” she continues. “It totally blindsides her. This is someone that… I mean, I can’t say too much… This is someone I think Alison would least expect to be ‘A’ and to rock the girls’ world. It’s kind of a betrayal, but at the same time, it’s confusing. It’s going to be interesting to see the way the fans react to it. I think they’re going to love it, but it’s not out of the blue either. It’s kind of someone who’s been there, but you would just never think so. And I think this is a really great choice, and it makes so much sense. And the way the’ve written it ties everything together. It’s a really dark story, but it’s also a really touching story. I think the fans aren’t going to know how to feel about it. It’s not like we’ve made this person just to regurgitate everything so everyone gets answers. It’s a really in-depth, heartbreaking story, and I think it’s also nice for our show as well. It’s not just us trying to give you answers, it’s about telling this remarkable story.”
OMG. You guys, I have so many feelings right now. This is the most monumental moment in Pretty Little Liars history, and Sasha assures us we’re going to love what we see.
“This episode is so important, and I think the fans are going to be so satisfied. And there’s really nothing to be confused about after this. It’s a game-changer. There’s no question about it. I think it’s such a great transition from this episode and into the second half of the season when we jump five years ahead. This is totally going to blow the fans away, and I think they’re going to be head over heels for it. I honestly do.”
