Remember when Rosewood was an idyllic Philadelphia suburb with a low murder rate?

Neither do we. But in honor of Tuesday night's Pretty Little Liars episode, showrunner I. Marlene King posted a throwback photo of a more innocent time: right before Alison DiLaurentis disappeared.

"This is how we started," King captioned the shot of Shay Mitchell (Emily), Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Sasha Pieterse (Ali), Ashley Benson (Hanna) and Lucy Hale (Aria) smiling on the set of the Hastings family's barn.

Happy PLL Day. This is how we started. Shooting the pilot barn scene in Vancouver.

Though the scene took place in the summer, the PLL pilot was filmed in Vancouver, Canada, so the girls are all bundled up in their puffer jackets. (Production has since moved to sunny Los Angeles.)

With only three more weeks until the summer finale, PLL is promising that A – and Charles DiLaurentis, who is, imagine that, ALIVE! – will be unmasked soon. In the next episode, Spencer and Toby (Keegan Allen) reunite as Ali's dad tries to take his family out of town before Charles' probably bloody birthday bash.
