Two days after the Pretty Little Liars summer finale and we’re still only thinking about one thing: is Spencer Hastings alive?!
OK, we’re also wondering if Toby and Yvonne survived their car crash, and how Mary could be Spencer’s mother, and what Ali will be like as a mom, and whether Ezria are now officially over, but our main PLL finale question is whether or not one of our favorite Liars survived her gunshot wound.
Of course, Troian Bellisario could not tell us, but she could tell us how it feels to be wrapping up Spencer’s story now that the show is officially ending next year.
“It’s been a blast these seven years,” the actress told E! News’ Zuri Hall at the premiere for her new Lifetime movie, Sister Cities. “I’m so excited to be closing out this chapter on Spencer, to be closing out this chapter on the world, and to be closing out this chapter on my life. Everything is going to be wrapped up. It’s so exciting.”
The summer finale was a big moment for Spencer, since she was not only shot, but she shared a “one last time” kiss with her engaged ex Toby (Keegan Allen) and learned that she was Mary Drake’s (Andrea Parker) secret baby that the group had been searching for.
Executive producer Marlene King also couldn’t say whether Spencer will live to lie another day, but she did promise that Spencer’s story will be “emotional” in the back half of the season, driven by that reveal that Mary’s her mother. We’ll just have to wait until 2017 to find out what that emotional story is!
After seven seasons surrounded by mostly women (along with a few hot guys) on the Freeform drama, not much changed for Bellisario on the set of her new Lifetime movie, Sister Cities.
Sister Cities tells the story of four estranged sisters who reunite after their mother’s alleged suicide, and also stars Troian Bellisario, Stana Katic, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jess Weixler, Kaia Gerber, and Jacki Weaver.
Press play on the video above to hear Bellisario sound off on PLL, followed by the girl power and the bomb scare that rocked the set of Sister Cities!
Sister Cities premieres Saturday, Sept. 17 on Lifetime, and Pretty Little Liars returns to Freeform in the spring.
