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!
If viewers think Pretty Little Liars is scary, just wait for the show's new spin-off Ravenswood.
"On Pretty Little Liars we've surprised people and we've put people in jeopardy, but we've never had a chance to straight-out scare people," executive producer Joseph Dougherty tells TVGuide.com. "Whatever the uneasiness level of Pretty Little Liars is, Ravenswood will be 20 to 30 times higher. I like to lull people in with a false sense of confidence and tell everyone that Ravenswood is a delightful romp and then have everyone watch and be terrified."

Is Red Coat really Alison, the Pretty Little Liars' Queen Bee best friend thought to be dead?
"We're going into Season 4 with [the question of], is she or isn't she [alive]?" executive producer Oliver Goldstick tells TVGuide.com.
On the Season 3 finale, the battle between Mona (Janel Parrish) and foursome Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) came to a head with the reveal that not only did Mona never know the identity of her boss in the red coat, but that she, Spencer and Hanna ultimately believed her to be Alison (Sasha Pieterse). 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? Plus: Where the heck are Paige and Jason? Goldstick answers our (many) burning questions.

For Pretty Little Liars' A-Team member Toby, it's only a matter of episodes before the jig is up.
"The clock is ticking at a fairly quick pace in terms of the revelation of Toby, and the girls are getting closer to uncovering the truth about it," executive producer Marlene King tells TVGuide.com.

"Mona is back, Toby is in black and Byron may be wack." That's the mantra that Pretty Little Liars executive producer Oliver Goldstick came up with while planning Season 3B.
"This is a game-changer for us because we've never had a parent who was really a suspect," Goldstick told TVGuide.com.

Pretty Little Liars
Why orange ya smiling, ladies? Pretty Little Liars resumes its second season on ABC Family January 2, and while we're thrilled to have them back, our heroines aren't exactly jump-suiting for joy. Emily, Hanna, Aria and Spencer will suffer through a less-than-fashionable community-service sentence.

What can you tease about the two-hour episode of Private Practice? —Jessica
NATALIE: As you might expect on an episode about Amelia's intervention, her brother Derek Shepherd will make an appearance! It won't mean things go smoothly though, as Amelia will turn the tables on her friends by exploiting their faults — Addison's inability to have a child, Pete's recent heart attack — causing two of the bunch to have very Izzie-like reactions.
I'd love some good Castle scoop. — Mike
ADAM: Sounds like Castle and Beckett are going to be working closely with...
