Rosewood is a perfect little town. So quiet and pristine, you'd never guess it holds so many secrets. Some of the ugliest ones belong to the prettiest girls in town -- Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily, four estranged friends whose darkest secrets are about to unravel.  One year ago, Alison, the Queen Bee of their group, disappeared and the girls swore they'd never tell what really happened that night. They thought their secrets would bond them together, but just the opposite is true. Then again, who's to say what the truth is in Rosewood. It seems everyone in town is lying about something.  Now, as the mystery surrounding Alison's disappearance resurfaces, the girls begin getting messages from "A," saying – and threatening – things only Alison would know. But it couldn't be Alison. Could it? Whoever it is, they seem to know all the girls' secrets, and seem to be watching their every move. The girls are friends again, but will they be there for each other if their dark secrets come to light?

ImageARIA MONTGOMERY (PLAYED BY LUCY HALE)  Aria Montgomery is your average girl next door whose live has been turned upside down after Alison's disappearance.  Before Alison went missing Aria and Alison shared several secrets between each other, and one of them just happened to be that they caught Aria's father cheating on her mother.  Aria was afraid that telling her mother would tear the family apart, but Alison insisted that the truth be revealed.  The secret went to the grave when Alison disappeared and Aria chose not to tell her mother what the girls saw after her father begged her not to.  The family moved away from Rosewood to escape as the drama began to unfold around them.  After spending a year away, the Montgomery family returned to Rosewood where Aria was reunited with her estranged friends as strange things started to happen around them.  On her first day back at school, Aria sat attended her English class only to find out that her teacher was the guy she had been seeing.  The only problem is he thought she was a college student!  Things can only get worse for Aria as these her secrets dangle on a tight rope in front of her just waiting to explode like dynamite.
ImageEMILY FIELDS (PLAYED BY SHAY MITCHELL)  From the outside, Emily Fields has the perfect life with two parents who provide the best for their daughter.   But according to Emily her parents expect everything in her life to be perfect and that she will graduate from an Ivy league school, get married to the perfect man and start a family of her own.  All of these expectations has only caused pressure in Emily's life and she finds herself steering her life in her own direction withholding a secret from everyone in her life, except Alison.  Of the clique, Emily was probably the closest to Alison.  She looked up to Alison's confidence and her freedom to live her life the way she wants.  Emily expressed her feelings for Alison by sharing a kiss in the school library, but was devastated when she was met with rejection.  After Alison's disappearance, Emily was left to pick up the pieces and found her life was a complete mess.  When Emily found out that Alison's house was sold she brought a basket of goodies to the new family who moved in.  She was taken by surprise when she met a young girl her age by the name of Maya, and there was an immediate attraction between the two with an unwritten agreement to keep it a secret.   But nothing stays a secret for long when "A" is involved!

ImageHANNA MARIN (PLAYED BY ASHLEY BENSON)  Hanna Marin has always struggled to become one of the popular girls after being nicked "Hefty Hanna" by her peers.  That is until Alison took Hanna under her wing, giving her a make-over, introducing her to the popular click and setting her up on dates with the hot school jocks!  After Alison disappeared it was up to Hanna to take over the role of Queen Bee of the school, which caused a rift between her friendship with the rest of the girls and started her own clique with Mona.  Being the Queen Bee isn't at all what its buzzed up to be as Hanna finds herself in trouble with the law after stealing sunglasses from a department store and getting busted by the cops.  Her mother comes to the rescue by befriending the cop assigned to the case.  When Alison's body is found behind her old home the cop has an alterier motive when it comes to Hanna's mother.  His mission is to uncover the details behind Alison's disappearance, which he thinks the girls are withholding vital information in the case.  Hanna reunites with the girls when each of them begin to receive text messages from a mysterious person named "A".
ImageSPENCER HASTINGS (PLAYED BY TROIAN BELLISARIO)  If you can envision the perfect straight A student that is involved with educational organizations and can ace a serve in tennis then you are sure to be looking at Spencer Hastings.  She has all of the accolades needed to become the Ivy league student that Emily's parents dream of.  Oddly enough, Spencer's parents are hardly around and when they are it's a constant let down filled with broken promises.  After Alison disappeared. Spencer's parents agreed to allow her to move into the guest quarters once she remodeled it.  But an unexpected return of her sister and new fiance turns Spencer's world upside down when they move into the guest house.  Chemistry develops between Spencer and her sister's fiance, which finds the two of them in an unexplainable liplock and Spencer is reminded of a secret she shared with Alison about a similar experience that happened in the past. Melissa milks the attention leaving her sister feeling guilty.  Spencer finds herself in a rare moment of writers block on an essay due the next day.  Out of anger and desperation, she steals her sister's computer and copies the essay she wrote for the same class six years ago and turns it in as her own.  These secrets are fodder for "A"!


The season premiere picks up exactly where the finale left off, at the crime scene where Hanna gets run over by a black car with dark tinted windows.  Moments after Hanna is hit by a car, the girls’ find themselves facing the reality that “A” is no longer content to playing a game of cat and mouse – it has taken a far more precarious turn and now more than ever the four Pretty Little Liars have to turn to each other for support. With Hanna in the hospital and armed with the information of who “A” is, the girls are backtracking to figure out how they got to this point. How could this person know everything and want to use it against them?  Here is what we know about tonight's season premiere:
