WARNING: We're about to recap the season four finale of Pretty Little Liars and spill some serious scoop on what's ahead. If you don't want to know, we suggest moving to Ravenswood. For everyone else, let's discuss!
What the $^#&! just happened?!
Tonight's season four finale of Pretty Little Liars promised fans an action-packed, answer-filled hour of heart-pounding thrills—and that's exactly what we got! We know that many of you are still trying to process the avalanche of answers that just suffocated you so here are the episodes' biggest twists and turns…
Spencer (Troian Bellisario) did not hurt Ali (Sasha Pieterse) the night she dissapeared. However, someone didcome up behind Ali and knocked her unconscious with a rock. Mr. DiLaurentis witnessed the entire thing and then proceeded to bury her daughter in the backyard—she just didn't know that Alison was still alive! It appears that Melissa Hastings (Torey DeVitto) was actually the one who killed that poor girl that is now buried in Ali's grave. The episode ended with a shocking "A" confrontation, and although we did not discover who was behind the mask, Ezra (Ian Harding) did get shot in an effort to protect the girls!
To help clarify some of the night's most jaw-dropping moments and find out what's ahead, we chatted with executive producer (and keeper of the secrets!) Marlene King. Read on for exclusive answers about Ezra's (Ian Harding) true intentions, who Mrs. DiLaurentis (Andrea Parker) was trying to protect, __ and more!
Many fans have been wondering if Ezra could ever redeem himself for all the lies and deceit he has put Aria (Lucy Hale) through. Tonight, when he literally took a bullet for the girls, was this his first step toward redemption?
Marlene King: For me, when I see that scene on the roof, where he takes a bullet for these girls and Aria's reaction to him falling on the ground it's just so real. I think that you see that she still loves him. She can acknowledge that he has betrayed her in a huge way, and maybe the start of their relationship was built on a built on a lie, but you can see that there is still so much love there. So that says a lot moving forward.
Not to always play Devil's advocate, but is it possible that Ezra taking the bullet for the girls was staged between him and "A"?
I never rule anything in or out, but I will say that Ezra's motives for his lair were definitely to write the book and then it did become finding A. He started writing the book and then he realized that "A" is still out there, and there was a shift in his motives and he wanted to find "A" before "A" hurt the Pretty Little Liars.
So recently Ezra has been trying to help protect the four girls?
I think he's been very proactive. I think you'll realize that he has hired private detectives, he has put security systems in place—all of those cameras were to watch those girls to keep them safe.
Before Ezra was shot, Hanna (Ashley Benson) was holding the gun and we all know she doesn't have the best of luck with the Rosewood P.D. Could Hanna's fingerprints on the gun come back to haunt her next season?
I don't know, that's a good question. I wouldn't assume just yet. I love that scene though—the girls are so kickass and it was just really fun.
We can only imagine how shocked fans are going to be when they find out, in those last few seconds, that Mrs. DiLaurentis has been killed. Does this have anything to do with the person Mrs. D. was covering up for when she, unknowingly, buried her daughter alive?
When she's doing it, she's crying and she's saying, 'What have you done? What have you done?' So the girls say in the episode...well, Spencer of course says, 'You're mother was protecting someone, but who?' So we don't know the answer to that.
Immediately our first reaction is that she is protecting Jason, are we wrong?
That's the go-to, the immediate go-to would be Jason, but as you know, nothing is as straight forward as it seems.
Looking ahead, what can fans expect from this summer's season five premiere?
I will say the June premiere really feels like it's a two-parter. It feels like a finale. It feels like just sixty more minutes of the finale, and I think the ride just keeps going. It's going to be a very big season in general and I think there will definitely be a big reveal in the 100th episode—it's going to be an emotionally epic episode.
We know that Ali (Sasha Pieterse) is finally going to be moving back to Rosewood, what can you tease for the little liar's grand debut?
It's spectacular. It's so much fun. It's such an added layer of depth to the show that we haven't had the opportunity to explore and she's been gone two years. Her character has changed very much. She's gone through a lot. So I think season five really is about has she really changed? Can people change, or do they just revert back to who they were before? It's a lot of secrets. So many secrets.
How on Earth is Ali going to be able to explain the fact that she supposedly died two years ago to her peers and residents of Rosewood?
Yeah well she's going to have to come up with a pretty good story. It's really actually a very fascinating thing. We're breaking those stories now and there's a fascinating twist in the second episode of what that story is and how it comes about.
Season five of Pretty Little Liars will premiere Tuesday, June 10.
Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) narrates the documentary about the incredible true story of nature’s greatest explorers—lemurs.

When will your lesser faves ever, ONTD?
Revealing a first look at Elizabeth Olsen's and Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Maximoff twins, Marvel has released official Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art from the ABC special, also revealing Hulkbuster!
Cameron Diaz thinks “everyone” has been cheated on. The actress stars alongside Kate Upton in The Other Woman, about a woman who teams up with her lover’s wife to seek revenge after finding out he’s married. She’s dated high-profile stars such as Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto in the past, but the 41-year-old is currently single.
Cameron believes that everyone has had to endure some form of infidelity in their lives and insists she didn’t shoot the film to make a statement.“My statement is that I am actually not interested in making movies about men cheating on women; it’s not at all what I am interested in,” she explained to the British edition of OK! magazine.
“Everybody has been cheated on, everyone will be cheated on. I can’t fix that, I don’t know how, I don’t have any judgement on anybody, I don’t know how to fix the problem. We are human beings, we are complicated – you cannot go through life without tallying up a few scars, you cannot go through life unscathed, it’s just what it is. It’s all meant to happen, take your lessons, figure it out, move on.”
The Other Woman isn’t just about cheating; it’s also about women sticking together when they’ve been betrayed. Cameron is pleased she has a good group of female friends to turn to during tough times. “I exist for all my girlfriends. I am very, very, very fortunate; my friends are incredible and I am very lucky to have a lot of really solid, good friends – girlfriends and male friends – who I can just rely on,” she smiled.
“We are tribal, we need our tribe – I have a bunch of little tribes all over the world that I pop to for a little bit of time, and then I move on and that’s the great thing about being mobile; a lot of my friends have kids and they are stuck, planted in one place, and I kind of get to pop into all the different little tribes around the world and hang out for a little bit.”
When the stunning, young ingenue Shailene Woodley first appeared on our television screens in 2008 as Amy Juergens on the ABC Family smash hit The Secret Life of the American Teenager, I had no fucking clue because I don't watch shitty television. But when she took to the silver screen in 2011 with her vastly overrated performance in the equally overrated The Descendents I knew that I was going to have to learn to put up with this bitch whether I liked it or not. Luckily, reporters the world over have allowed Shailene to shine in interviews in a way in which he has never once shined on screen. Below, find 5 of Shai Shai's greatest quotes from the past year and like the sun upon your vagina let their warmth and light envelope you, keeping you free from yeast infections. ~ luvthatdrtywata
“Another thing I like to do is give my vagina a little vitamin D. I was reading an article written by an herbalist I studied about yeast infections and other genital issues. She said there’s nothing better than vitamin D. If you’re feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get. Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine.” INTO THE GLOSS
“I think everything about my lifestyle is fairly alternative. I gather my own spring water from mountains every month. I go to a farm to get my food. I make everything from my own toothpaste to my own body lotions and face oils. I could go on for hours. I make my own medicines; I don’t get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants. It’s an entire lifestyle. It’s appealing to my soul.” FLAUNT MAGAZINE
“There is an herb called mugwort that I’ve tried, which is supposed to help enhance dreams. You can burn a little before bed or sleep on a mugwort pillow. It’s found in all parts of America, East Coast and West—anytime you see weeds growing through cracks in a parking lot, there’s probably mugwort. You can harvest it yourself, dry it, bundle it, and burn it like sage. Specifically, mugwort is associated with lucid dreaming, which I’ve experienced a few times. I’m no expert, but when I’ve tried it, I’ve used a technique where you fall asleep while knocking on a wall. Something about that keeps your brain awake while your body goes to sleep, inducing that great moment when you realize, Wow, I’m conscious of the fact that I’m dreaming."HARPER'S BIZARRE
"I don’t even have a smartphone. I don’t even have a cellphone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone.” THE DAILY BEAST
"But I first heard about the benefits of eating clay from a taxi driver. He was African and was saying that, where he’s from, the women eat clay when they’re pregnant. Seriously—ask your taxi drivers where they are from and about their customs. You will learn a lot."INTO THE GLOSS
Justin Bieber has a solid explanation for APPEARING to be under the influence when he was told to walk the line ... he messed up his foot while skateboarding -- and you won't believe how Bieber threw his wealth in the cop's face during the arrest.
Justin has been charged with DUI in Miami Beach. Cops say Bieber tested positive for Xanax and weed ... his alcohol level was inconsequential ... .014.
Cops are hanging their hat on Bieber appearing unsteady as he tried walking the line in jail. But according to newly released documents, Bieber told cops he had a hairline fracture on his right foot ... caused by a skateboarding accident 3 months earlier.
And then there are some snotty comments from the Biebs. According to the new docs, Bieber told the arresting officer, "I'm 19 years old. I'm just out having a good time." The cop responded he wasn't driving around in a Lambo at that age. Bieber fired back, "Yeah, well, I bet you didn't have millions of dollars in your bank account either."
The arresting officer told Bieber it seemed he was having trouble driving the Lamborghini, to which Bieber responded, "What? I've been driving a Lamborghini since I was 15."
The case against Bieber seems about as shaky as his gait. It's pretty clear he wasn't drag racing as the arresting cop claimed. And another cop claimed Bieber reeked of booze, which doesn't seem possible.
Belle Knox has gained plenty of fame over the last few months thanks to being unwillingly exposed by a fellow Duke student that she worked in the porn industry. In her most recent television appearance, Knox spoke with the hosts of The View about her career.
Asked by co-host Jenny McCarthy about how she came into working in the adult entertainment industry, Knox gave a little backstory on her journey to her career.
"I, like most other people, have been watching porn since I was 12-years-old," she explained. "Like [with] most other females, there's a stigma with watching pornography so I was not open about watching pornography."
Whoopi Goldberg stated: "You know what freaked a lot of people out was that you said you felt empowered, which I got, but I would love for you to explain to people why you felt that way."
"Well I'd like to first clarify that the idea of empowerment and degradation is completely subjective. For me I feel that, in this backdrop of our society where women are so often robbed of their sexual autonomy and are subjected to sexual violence ... it's incredibly freeing and liberating for me to have that choice, to make decisions about my own body," Knox said.
"In porn, I'm in a safe, controlled environment where I set the boundaries, I set the rules."
It's their last show on the tour supporting Demi in Minnesota and apparently a fan dared her to do it.
Ugh this show...I can't
We've all had tracks that we've thought are just on endless loop on radio stations, but this is taking the mickey. iHeartRadio is going to play Pharrell Williams's worldwide smash 'Happy' on a loop. For 13 days.

Lachey went solo after his band's 2000 album Revelation, but 98 Degrees reunited for 2.0 in 2013. 5ive—known for semi-hits like "Slam Dunk (Da Funk)" and "When the Lights Go Out"—released three albums between 1999 and 2001. Five years after the band broke up, in 2006, J Brown, Abz Love, Ritchie Neville and Scott Robinson staged a comeback without fifth band member Sean Conlon. Eight months later, they disbanded a second time. They were featured in the ITV2 documentary series The Big Reunion in early 2013, and they went on a tour of the U.K.—this time, however, Brown was M.I.A.
ONTD, what is your pick for the worst boy band of the '90s?
All Africa reports that Chimamanda Adichie and Lupita Nyong'o might bring Americanah to the screen.
Nigerian award-winning Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie, has hinted at a future "collaboration" with Oscar winning Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong'o. Adichie gave the tip during an interview on entertainment web-series, Arise Entertainment 360 published on YouTube Thursday.
According to Adichie, the collaboration will have to do with her 2013 novel, Americanah. "I'm going to do the mysterious thing and say that Lupita might be making an announcement sometime soon - I don't know. That announcement might be about Americanah - I don't know," she said coyly.
Adichie disclosed that Nyong'o was a very early fan of Americanah. "Before she was sort of well-known like she is now (... ) she wrote me the loveliest email; very long and passionate email about Americanah."

Lady Gaga's vomit-art performance at last week's (ends14Mar14) South by Southwest festival in Texas has inspired healthy eating activists to urge the pop superstar to sever ties with controversial artist Millie Brown.
A group of women outraged by the 13 March (14) show, during which Brown threw up on Gaga in the name of art, have teamed up to launch a Care2 petition demanding that the Poker Face singer stop glamorising bulimia.
The Care2 petition already has over 9,000 signatures.
The activists fear Gaga's stunt could potentially serve as a trigger for those struggling with eating disorders, like Gaga, who recently admitted she has fought to overcome bulimia in the past.
Ironically, the vomit-art stage performance in Austin came less than a month after America's Eating Disorders Awareness Week (23Feb-01Mar14).
Signing on to the petition, Care2 member Rosyln Budoff has written a personal note to Gaga. It reads: "Eating disorders do not need to be glamorized. What kind of message are you sending to young girls? Shame on you for this."
And Kimberly Johnson adds, "Bulimia is Not funny or something to make lite (sic) of... I am a recovering Bulimic and I almost died in 2009. Eating disorders like this should Not be glamorized!"
After suggesting that they would have a Captain America 3 meeting with Marvel and directors Anthony and Joe Russo immediately after a Den of Geek interview last week, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely discussed whether the third installment will adapt another story arc a la The Winter Soldier and incorporate the upcoming sequel's open threads. "Oh yeah, you can probably predict some of the threads we would like to pick up again that we’ve laid out there," assures McFeely. "And we always go back to the comics and dive back in and look at anything we’ve missed in the last few years that might be relevant." Markus chimed: "We’ve definitely set out on a more realistic road in the Cap movies, you know. Even more grounded than in the other MCU movies. And so it kind of rules out Cap fighting the Dinosaur Man or something like that. There are some that aren’t gonna start and other ones that -- I mean there’s a couple we’re playing with right now that we really want to take elements from. Which we'll not reveal." When pressed for more, "All I’m saying is psychotic 1950s Cap."
Without spoiling any details, the Winter Soldier story line still has some loose ends at the end. Are those leading into Age of Ultron, or are they leading into another Captain America movie, as far as you know?
AR: You know, the condition that SHIELD is in at the end of this movie, leads it to Age of Ultron. The conditions of the relationship between Captain America and Winter Soldier are very much about the next Captain America.
JR: And you know, Frank Grillo's character, Brock Rumlow - there's the potential that this is now the origin story for him-that Crossbones will emerge.
Without - obviously I don't want to spoil too much for the viewers, but there is more that could be done with the Winter Soldier after this movie. Do you know - is that going to happen in Age of Ultron, or is that being left to a future Captain America movie?
SS: As of right now, I don't believe I'm involved with the Age of Ultron. That I can definitely say. As for the latter, listen: I don't know. We're just literally now putting this movie out there. You know how the story goes in the comic books. There's a lot there to be covered still, and I'm equally interested to see where the guys are going to take it next. As far as I'm concerned, we just scratched the tip of the iceberg.
Can you tell me how many Marvel movies you're contracted to do?
That's an impressive contract!
SS: Yeah, that's -only recently someone asked me that, and I remembered. I believe that's right.
What's coming up next for you?
SS: Well, it depends. I'm excited for this movie to come out, and I have to kind of wait and see April 4th, about certain things.
I don't think there's much doubt as to the success of this film.
SS: Oh, there you go!
What do you think?
Zachary Levi's Nerd HQ is a popular thing at San Diego Comic-Con. It's not affiliated with Con, it just pops up in San Diego at the same time, an off-site venue where the same people who are on stage in Hall H and signing autographs in the atrium show up and do Q&As, and they have charity auctions and at night there are (guest listed) parties where the famous nerd people drink and dance. I hear it's fun and cool, and while it's the same faces you can see in the convention center it's a more intimate location. You're not six thousand people deep, as you are in Hall H.
This year Nerd HQ is turning to crowdfunding for reasons. It's not clear from the IndieGogo page why Nerd HQ can't find sponsorship - many of the guests they have are in San Diego promoting movies with enormous marketing budgets, and every studio and company is looking for partners - but they're turning to the fans. That's kind of cool. And they're asking the fans to donate...
ONE MILLION DOLLARS.
No, this isn't an Austin Powers gag. It's the budget required to throw Nerd HQ - rental, lighting, all that stuff. That seems pricey to me, but I don't really know much about the cost of putting on an event. Maybe that's totally reasonable. And surely that million dollar goal includes money that goes to charity, right? Because Nerd HQ is thrown partially to support Operation Smile, a group that fixes cleft palates, so when you donate to Nerd HQ some portion of your donation must go to kids. Right?
We want to make it very clear that the money you are contributing for Nerd HQ is not going to charity. The funds raised here will pay for the production of Nerd HQ in San Diego this July.
That's fourth paragraph on the fundraising page. At least they let you know. And surely if they're spending a million dollars on this event, they plan to raise an insane amount of money for cleft palates, right?
In 2013, Nerd HQ raised $215,000 for the charity.
Hmm. That's only a quarter of what they're raising for production.
OK, but at least when I donate money I get access to Nerd HQ. I get to cut the long lines and be in the room when Tom Hiddleston or Nathan Fillion appear to discuss their careers and make jokes, right?
Actually, no. There is no level of donation that gets you into Nerd HQ. Or any of the parties that have made the venue so popular with the talent. There's no donation level that gets you... anything. Every donation level is the same, where you get placed on their email spam list and also receive their gratitude. Remember that when you've given one thousand dollars and stand in line for three hours only to get shut out of the panel you wanted to see.
Something seems broken here. Asking people for money to put on an event they may not even be able to participate in? How is there no level that gives you an all-access badge? How does throwing a million dollar party to raise a quarter of a million dollars for charity make sense? I'm not begrudging people the good times they have at Nerd HQ, and more power to everyone who felt included and part of a fun event. But this seems like a huge misuse of crowdfunding to me, the kind of situation that sours people on the very concept. Zach Levi wants to throw a party and for you to pay for it... and maybe you can get in, if you wait around long enough in line.
I understand it's tough to throw an event at Comic-Con, and that it gets pricey. Yes, Tom Hiddleston is there to promote something, but the studios are cautious about pissing off SDCC by supporting off-site events. But this is the biggest off-site event, and it seems like bad planning that Nerd HQ wasn't able to get SOME funding for their venue. And if the cost of throwing a multi-day event is too big... maybe they should scale it back. Not ask the fans to foot the bill and get zilch in return.
If you want to help Operation Smile, click here to donate. This WILL be a donation to charity, not a party.
