The present is looking bleak for the ladies of Pretty Little Liars.
When we saw them last, Aria (Lucy Hale), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and a newly alive Mona (Janel Parrish) were trapped in Charles DiLaurentis' lair, wearing tattered prom dresses.
So it makes sense that Hale, 25, is excited to see the characters' future when PLL flashes forward in season 6 – a first for the show built on crimes from the past.

A is toying with the Liars like never before.
In the first teaser for season 6 of Pretty Little Liars, Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Mona (Janel Parrish) are the Rosewood cyberbully's living dolls, forced to play by his rules in the show's creepiest game yet.

Tuesday night's Pretty Little Liars finale didn't just give us the "Big A" reveal: It brought Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish) back from the dead!
Despite the camera panning to what looked like the geek–turned–queen bee's corpse during the summer finale, the original A was actually kidnapped by Charles, who trapped her in his lifesize dollhouse and tried to brainwash her into being Alison (Sasha Pieterse). Creepy – especially considering we're 99 percent sure Charles is Ali's long-lost brother.
PEOPLE chatted with Parrish, 26, about her character's resurrection, what's next for the Liars and whether Mike (Cody Christian) and Mona shippers will be satisfied in season 6.

The Pretty Little Liars finale gave us the identity of "Big A" but left fans with more questions than ever.
PLL boss I. Marlene King holds all the secrets, but she isn't spilling them ... yet. The ever evasive executive producer did tell PEOPLE what we can expect in June's season 6 and hinted that the person at the center of Tuesday night's big reveal may not be the last A the Liars have to unmask.
Stop reading now if you haven't seen "Welcome to the Dollhouse" and want to avoid spoilers from PLL's season 5 finale.

Who is Charles?
That's the question Pretty Little Liars fans face after Tuesday night's (literally!) electrifying spring finale.
Though we never saw his face, we know he's "A." According to the anagram from a few episodes ago, his last name is DiLaurentis. And based on the old film footage showing Mrs. D (Andrea Parker) playing with two little blond boys, we're pretty confident this is author Sara Shepard's twin twist come to life. But it's not Alison (Sasha Pieterse) who has the secret, evil doppelgänger – it's her brother, Jason (Drew Van Acker).

Who's afraid of the big bad "A"?
Pretty much everyone on Pretty Little Liars. But who is the puppet master pulling the strings all season? Who killed Mona, who framed Alison, and who set up Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily as accessories to the crime?
We know he/she has a wardrobe full of black hoodies and collects creepy dolls, and the PLL powers that be have promised we'll find out A's identity during Tuesday's finale. In the meantime, here's what PEOPLE has learned about the mysterious murderer from interviews with stars Shay Mitchell (Emily), Sasha Pieterse (Ali), Cody Christian (Mike) and Keegan Allen (Toby), along with executive producer and writer Joseph Dougherty.

Did you spot the special guest star in Tuesday's episode of Pretty Little Liars?
Sara Shepard, whose hit book series inspired the show, made a cameo as a court reporter who revealed devastating news: A surprise witness from Mona's (Janel Parrish) past had evidence that helped seal Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) fate. (Spoiler alert: She's still rocking an orange jumpsuit after the trial.)
"To come back and have a role was really fun," Shepard tells PEOPLE. "It's the same crew and the same writers and kind of the same team that was working on the show from the very beginning, and they're all still just as nice as when it started, when it was just this little show that nobody knew what was going to happen with it."
So who does make the author star-struck? Jay Jackson – better known as the lovably dense journalist Perd Hapley on Parks and Recreation – who also played a news anchor in Tuesday night's scene.
"When he came out of the trailer, I was like, 'I love you!' He was so sweet and really cool and made me feel very at ease, and we practiced our lines together," says Shepard, who also appeared as a substitute teacher in the first season. "He has daughters, and they read Pretty Little Liars, so that was a lot of fun."
Shepard, 37, shared behind-the-scenes photos from the PLL set exclusively with PEOPLE, and we picked her brain about the explosive upcoming finale, who she thinks "A" could be and how the TV series is different from her novels.

Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) is a pretty little prisoner.
The character whose disappearance, "death" and resurrection grounded the show for five seasons was wrongfully convicted of murdering Mona (Janel Parrish) on Tuesday night's episode of Pretty Little Liars.
And, at the end, her gal pals joined her in orange jumpsuits, arrested as accessories to the crime she didn't really commit.
With just one week left until the spring finale – and the big "A" reveal – here's what went down in Rosewood:
