Tonight is the season 6B winter premiere of Pretty Little Liars, with the girls’ lives picking up five years later. Charles and “A” are long gone … or are they? And, is there still danger? Of course there’s still danger! And, we’ve got all the best spoilers for the rest of the season right here, including an episode guide for you.
Emily returns to Rosewood with two secrets. Emily was originally set for Pepperdine University in California, but she dropped out of college after the unexpected death of her father. When the show picks back up, she’s working as a bartender, according to Melty. And, Emily’s mother has been dating someone since her dad’s death.
With the winter season comes new characters and the girls each have new secrets from each other. Now at age 21 years old, there’s a whole new level of conversations that go on between them. Showrunner Marlene King has hinted that Emily has the biggest secret of all and there will be a new villain connected to one of the girls. There is also a new love interest for Aria. There’s also a new hottie named Liam (played by Roberto Aguire) who works with Aria, so the two have an office romance. Unfortunately, Ezra has descended into alcoholism and King calls him the most “damaged” character. He is an author, but has had writers’ block because of a tragic event that has happened to him. King reveals to Variety:
Ian Harding is amazing this season and did such good job of finding this darker side of Ezra. He meets somebody to lean on and she’s willing to be there for him.
King reveals that this season will be very romantic for the characters. Toby and Spencer have broken up and the rumor is that Spencer’s new love interest is named “Yvonne.” King did not confirm this, but she did say:
He’s extremely involved with someone, other than Spencer. We’ll find out early on that with two people who grew apart, but still love each other so very much, this is the first person he’s really been able to care about since he and Spencer grew apart.
Hanna has a fiance named Jordan, who will be played by Australian actor David Coussins, but we don’t necessarily get to meet him in the first episode of the 6B.
And now, if you’re ready for the biggest spoiler from the 6B premiere, here it is: Charlotte DiLaurentis is murdered on the premiere.
