Is Red Coat a friend, not a foe? Will Toby and Spencer's love survive? Who is A? All will be revealed! (Well, not really.)


In case there was any doubt: Yes, there is a body in the trunk of the cop car that we saw the Liars open at the end of the season 3 finale. But who’s inside? Exec producer Oliver Goldstick will only tease that this latest casualty is going to introduce even more danger for the gang. ”The body itself will just be the prelude to something much scarier that starts to happen when the girls realize their families are in jeopardy,” he says. Meanwhile, this season will blow open the mystery of Red Coat as the girls question whether she is indeed a ”benevolent force”; reveal possible new romantic interests for the Liars (including Lucy Hale’s Aria — sorry, Ezria fans); and see the return of Alison’s mother (Andrea Parker), whose reappearance ”opens [the door] to the DiLaurentis house, and that is, for us, figuratively and literally a new frontier,” Goldstick says. And as for the presumed-dead-but-totally-alive Toby (Keegan Allen)? His relationship with Spencer (Troian Bellisario) will be ”strained” as he struggles to keep secrets surrounding his own mystery. ”He has to be very cautious and very circumspect about what he can share,” says Goldstick, ”or it may backfire and really hurt him.”
