In last night’s Pretty Little Liars finale, Mona finally bid her adieu.
TVLine recently caught up with the Janel Parrish who revealed details about what Mona will be doing now.
“Basically, as Alison was the flashback girl for the past three seasons, it will now be [Mona],” Janel Parrish said. “I think it’s great! Even though Alison was ‘dead’ for the first three seasons, you found out everything about her through flashbacks, and now that’ll be happening through Mona.”
TVLINE | I’m bummed about Mona’s death, but does the fact that was sort of redeemed make it easier?
It does, and I think that’s also what makes her death so devastating. She finally earned people’s trust, not only the girls’ but also the fans’. She finally came through for everyone … and then she died.
TVLINE | We didn’t see the attack itself. Was there a plan to show more?
Actually, more will be seen of the fight. Mona did not go out without a struggle, and I’m very proud of her for that. If I could have chosen the way she died, it would have been that way — her fighting till her last breath.
TVLINE | Since we’re seeing her in flashbacks, what else is there to tell?
It’ll be satisfying for fans to get more information about Mona, since she’s been such a mystery. It’ll be good to see some backstory as far as she’s concerned.
TVLINE | So you’re still a series regular?
Yup! I’m still going to be a regular, just in a different way.
TVLINE | How is Mona’s death, in the present, going to affect the girls moving forward?
It’s going to be the biggest mystery moving forward in the second half of the season. It’s going to affect Hanna the most; she loved her at one time. They were really close at one point, and they’ve always had an intense relationship, whether it be good or bad.
