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.

The stars of Pretty Little Liars are always rocking trendy duds on the show. But offscreen, Shay Mitchell prefers going au natural.

Before Pretty Little Liars returns for the "Summer of Answers" on Tuesday, it's time to test your knowledge of the ABC Family mystery's twists and turns.
After five seasons of threatening texts, near-death experiences, really unethical police conduct, too-cute-for-high-school outfits and Toby's (a.k.a. Keegan Allen's) abs, you helped crack the identity of Charles DiLaurentis, but can you remember the pattern on the top Hanna (Ashley Benson) lent Spencer (Troian Bellisario) or the phone number Tippi the bird sings to the Liars?
That's right: PEOPLE is bringing you the toughest PLL quiz yet. Take it below, but don't cheat with a Google search – remember, "A" sees everything.

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.

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.

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:

Innocent or guilty?
That's the question Pretty Little Liars' reformed mean girl Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) faces ahead of Tuesday's episode, when a judge will hand down the verdict in her trial for rival Mona Vanderwaal's (Janel Parrish) murder.
But Pieterse promises the biggest shock will come when Big "A" is unmasked.
"I'm just really excited for the fans to see this A in a new light," Pieterse, 19, tells PEOPLE. "It's more disheartening and sad than anything."
Read on to hear her thoughts on the cliffhanger to come, next week's finale, how her character has developed and if there's any hope for stragglers still shipping Emison.

There was no order in this courtroom.
Tuesday's episode of Pretty Little Liars saw the start of Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) trial for Mona's (Janel Parrish) murder, but we didn't really learn anything new the proceedings. Instead, the state's team tried to drum up melodrama and air dirty laundry, painting Ali as a manipulative, soulless ringleader who took high school cattiness way too far.
Yeah, that's an accurate portrait – and that's exactly what Big "A" was counting on.

One down, three to go.
"A" successfully landed a Liar in jail, just as he/she threatened Alison (Sasha Pieterse) on Tuesday's Pretty Little Liars. The rest of the girls desperately tried to decipher who Varjak could be, Ezria called it quits and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) flirted up a storm – literally. Read on for what else happened in Rosewood this week.
Plus! We're trying something new for recaps after being absolutely floored by readers' sleuthing. Tell us who you think A is in the comments section or by Tweeting @people with the hashtag #PLLTheories, and your theory could be published in the next week's post!"
