Everyone was shocked when they found out that Mona was â€śAâ€ť in ABC Familyâ€™s Pretty Little Liars Season 2 finale but the Little Liar who had to be the most hurt by Monaâ€™s big revelation was Hanna. Wetpaint Entertainment spoke with star Ashley Benson about how Hanna will react to Mona being â€śAâ€ť in Season 3 and who she secretly wants to be working for Monaâ€™s â€śAâ€ť team.
Wetpaint Entertianment: How are things changing now that â€śAâ€ť has been revealed?
Ashley Benson: A lot, because â€śAâ€ť is Mona and she was my best friend. So thatâ€™s difficult to deal with. Now Hanna is trying to figure out if itâ€™s her fault, what she did to kind of make Mona turn against her. Itâ€™s tough. Sheâ€™s just trying to figure out answers and what she can do to help now that her friend is in an insane asylum. She doesnâ€™t know what to do, she feels lost. She has her other friends but Monaâ€™s different, and sheâ€™s not the person she thought she was.
Why does Hanna go to visit her in the asylum in the Season 3 premiere?
She just wants answers. Itâ€™s not even really to rebuild a friendship because itâ€™s kind of done after everything that happened. But yeah, itâ€™s just to find out answers and to see who is all in this because they are still getting tortured by someone else and how can it be [Mona]? Sheâ€™s locked up. Sheâ€™s just trying to figure out who sheâ€™s working with or whatâ€™s going on. I donâ€™t even know if there will be a friendship between them again, weâ€™ll see what goes down, but as for now she just wants answers
Would you like any of the main four girls to be â€śAâ€ť?
Iâ€™ve always wanted that. Iâ€™ve always wanted my character to be â€śA.â€ť I think it would be brilliant, the fans wouldnâ€™t like it because itâ€™s obviously not in the books, but I definitely think it would be a cool thing to twist on everyone in the last season. It would be really cool because theyâ€™ve been planning and working with all these people and it very well could be Hanna because Mona turns out to be â€śAâ€ť and she has all these people working for her. I donâ€™t know if that will ever happen but if it did that would be really cool.
Are there any flashbacks this season?
Thereâ€™s a few flashbacks, we actually havenâ€™t shot that many. This episode we do have a few flashbacks which will answer some question about Jason and his dad, and Alisonâ€™s whole before she disappeared kind of thing.
