Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell
The ladies of Pretty Little Liars have been on one wild ride throughout the show's four and a half seasons.
What began with a simple anonymous text message from the omniscient "A" has turned into a complicated mystery with the foursome at the center -- (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Emily (Shay Mitchell) — never knowing who to trust. The series has seen several people don the hoodie and assume the identity of A, even more characters die, secrets surface, relationships get destroyed and even one person, the thought-to-be-dead Alison (Sasha Pieterse), return. As the show, now in its fifth season, hits the milestone 100th episode, TVGuide.com chatted with the cast and creative team to find out their favorite episodes, most wacky plotlines, saddest character deaths, which story received the most backlash and more!

Another tormenter has been crossed off the Pretty Little Liars' list, but was she A? The girls certainly think so.
Season 5 of the addictive ABC Family drama picked up immediately after the finale's shooting, with Ezra (Ian Harding) being rushed to the hospital. Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Alison (Sasha Pieterse) took action to lure out A and it worked. As a gun-wielding Shana (Aeriel Miranda) showed up to the Fitzgerald Family's Broadway theater revealing that she was responsible for the cabin fire, among other things, and trying to prove her love to Jenna (Tammin Sursok), Aria showed up in time to save the foursome by bludgeoning her.

Pretty Little Liars' fourth season was dubbed the "Season of Answers," and we definitely got them.
After four long seasons, some of the major questions surrounding the night of Alison's disappearance got resolved. More A suspects were crossed off the list, we learned Mrs. DiLaurentis (Andrea Parker) was the one who buried her own daughter (Sasha Pieterse) alive, Noel (Brant Daugherty) was helping Alison stay safe, and stalker Mona (Janel Parish) also knew she was alive the entire time, setting her up so she could become the Queen Bee.

Does this mean Alison was never killed? Or does she have a twin? And can viewers believe Toby (Keegan Allen) when he claims he was only on the A Team to protect Spencer?

Pretty Little Liars executive producer Marlene King warned us that the midseason finale would include a major shock, but that didn't keep our jaws from hitting the floor when we learned in the final seconds of the episode that Toby Cavanaugh (Keegan Allen) was the betrayer.

For Pretty Little Liars fans who felt last season's big reveal wasn't a shock, executive producer Marlene King promises that this Tuesday's finale will make up for it tenfold.
"Honestly, people's jaws will hit the floor," King tells TVGuide.com. "For people who felt like [Mona being A] wasn't the big twist they were looking for, they're getting their big twist tomorrow. And the fact that it's two massive, mind-blowing twists, fans will be so shocked and satisfied by this episode. "

Pretty Little Liars is nearing its summer finale when one of 12 possible people will make the ultimate betrayal.
Although at the end of last season, it was finally revealed that Mona (Janel Parrish) was "A," there are still plenty of mysteries to be solved. First, there's the new person calling themselves "A" who continuously torments Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchel), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Hanna (Ashley Benson). Then there are the unsolved murders of Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and Maya (Bianca Lawson).

"Oh. My. God. Those are the only words I have for this episode," teases Ashley Benson, whose Hanna is clearly having a rough time at Rosewood's latest crime scene in Pretty Little Liars' August 28 mid-season finale. Where is Emily? And why are the cops so interested in talking to Paige (Lindsey Shaw)? All Benson offers is that "people get hurt...there might even be a...
Playing snobby mean girl Amber Pollack in the ABC Family movie Teen Spirit was familiar territory for Make It or Break It star Cassie Scerbo.
"It's really fun to be a spicy character — it's never boring," Scerbo, who plays self-proclaimed "Queen of the Beam" Lauren Tanner on Make It or Break It, tells TVGuide.com.
There is, however, one big difference between Amber and Lauren: Amber is dead. The queen bee dies after a freak accident at prom. But in order for Amber to make it to heaven, an angel (Tim Gunn) says she must help Lisa (Lindsey Shaw), the most unpopular girl in school, become prom queen (as seen in the clip below).
