Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 3, Episode 20 of ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars," titled "Hot Water."
Ever since Spencer (Troian Bellisario) found out her boyfriend Toby (Keegan Allen) was a member of the "A" Team, she's been losing it ... to put it lightly. And according to "Pretty Little Liars" creator and executive producer I. Marlene King, it's only going to get worse.
"I've been waiting for Spencer to react like this since 'A' started," King told Entertainment Weekly in the magazine March 1 cover story, which is on newsstands now. "As tortured as she's been in the first half of this cycle, she's even more tortured in the last half."
Based on ABC Family's promo photos from upcoming "Pretty Little Liars" episodes, it looks like Spencer ends up in Radley, but is it because she's completely lost it or because she's trying to gather some information. (Check out the official descriptions for the next three episodes below for clues).
Presumably, this quashes the chance of Wren (Julian Morris) and Spencer working out. Morris told The Hollywood Reporter, "A lot is going to happen. In Episode 23, we get to see a side of Wren that is quite cool ... certainly a side of Wren I've never had the opportunity to play. I can tell you it does involve Spencer. When I read the script for the penultimate episode, I was like, 'Wicked!' It's fun and I should leave it at that."
Also, the mysterious Red Coat will be revealed in the upcoming Season 3 episodes and "Pretty Little Liars" executive producer Oliver Goldstick teased to EW that she is "who you think it might be, yes." In the finale, "Spencer meets her face-to-face," according to EW.
Speaking of the finale, there's a fire that will leave one character dead ... or does it? "There's a moment where people will believe there's a dead body, and there may be one," Bellisario told EW. "This cliff-hanger changes the landscape of the 'A' game," King added. "They didn't know as much as they thought they knew -- or that there's a lot more to the story."
Wetpaint thinks Jason DiLaurentis (Drew Van Acker) could bite the bullet. "As Jason himself pointed out, it sure as heck looks like the 'A' team is targeting former N.A.T. club members," the website wrote. "If that's true, then he has a giant target on his back."
