‘Pretty Little Liars’ Executive Producer I. Marlene King Dishes on Season 5: ‘It’s Epic In Every Way’

Pretty Little Liars 100th Episode CakePretty Little Liars creator I. Marlene King and the cast show off their 100th Episode Celebration Cake in this new shot from Instagram.

“Happy 100th episode to my dearest and sweetest PLL family. I’m so blessed to be on this journey with you,” Marlene captioned.

In a recent interview with THR, she also opened up about the upcoming season 5, which premieres in just one week.

“[It's] our most emotionally complex season so far…It’s emotional. It’s very epic in every way. It’s rich and full. It’s kind of nonstop. It’s like a freight train this season,” she shared. “Lucas, Paige, Noel Kahn, everybody who was tangled under her web. Do we get sucked back in? What do we do? How do we deal with it? That’s what’s going to be interesting to see how it plays out. Does this group need a leader? Does this group want a leader?”

And what about Ezra? “He still needs to be redeemed, by the way. He took a bullet for the girls, but he still has some work to do. That’s definitely part of [his arc].”

Pretty Little Liars: Everything you need to know about the upcoming 100th episode!

Pretty Little Liars’ 100th episode is right around the corner — Season 5, Episode 5 — and we are gathering up every and all details about the milestone ep we can. For instance: it’s title. What do you call such an important installment? Check out the title for the 100th episode of Pretty Little Liars!

The episode is titled “Miss Me x 100,” as revealed by Tammin Sursok’s (Jenna Marshall) script for the episode. “Oh what’s this?! Oh ya know… Just the 100th episode and #Jenna’s return #PLL,” Tammin tweeted, along with a photo of the script in question. Yes, this means the blind-again mean girl will be back in the episode, which will hopefully bring back many a familiar face for the festivities.

 

What might the title mean? Well, the “x 100” is obviously as reference to the episode’s number, but whom are we meant to have missed? Ali will have presumably been back in Ravenswood for a few episodes at this point, right? Or will Pretty Little Liarshold off her return until the fifth episode of the season. That certainly would be epic: to spend the 100th episode watching all of the characters we know and love (or hate) react to Ali’s return.

Penned by showrunner Marlene King and set to be directed by Norman Buckley, the PLL Powers That Be are pulling out all of the stops for the episode. According to Marlene, “There will be a big reveal: One of our mysteries that we’ve had for a long time on the show will be revealed in the 100th.” The episode will also include the return of Caleb from his ghost-hunting excursions in Ravenswood. How will Hanna react? Hard to say, but maybe that’s what she’ll be discussing with Spencer in the Spanna scene we know will be featured in the ep.

We may be psyched for a Spanna scene (always), but we have a very set list of scenes we need to see in the 100th episode, including a Rosewood get-together and plenty of Ali. Everything else is just icing on the 100th episode cake!

Who do you think the title refers to? What do you want to see in the 100th episode? Sound off in the comments below!

Is a Pretty Little Liar walking down the aisle?

No, we aren’t talking about Troian Bellisario’s recent announcement that she’s engaged to boyfriend and fellow actor Patrick J. Adams. Although, the fact that Pretty Little Liars is planning a bridal-themed episode with Spencer (Bellisario) at the forefront only a couple of weeks after news of the actress’ engagement does seem perfectly timed.
