TEASER
INT. HALLWAY - NIGHT
ALISON runs down a hallway at Radley, still in her prom
dress, ARIA, SPENCER, HANNA, AND EMILY following.
INT. STAIRWELL - NIGHT
The girls run up a set of stairs until they emergeEXT. ROOFTOP - NIGHT
-On top of the roof of Radley. Ali is worried, more than the
others. She looks around frantically until she finally sees
who shes looking for.
ALISON
Please! Dont do this!
CHARLES stands on the ledge of the roof, ready to jump.
EXT. RADLEY FRONT GATE - NIGHT
Several police cars arrive at the front gates. Officers crawl
out of them as soon as they come to a stop. Among the
officers is Detective BARRY Maple.
BARRY
(into police radio)
We may have a visual on the suspect
on the roof.
EXT. ROOFTOP - NIGHT
The girls hold Alison back as she pleads with CHARLES.
ALISON
Ill do whatever it takes to help
you.
SPENCER
Look, just because we know who you
are, it doesnt mean the game is
over.

2.

INTERCUT - THE ROOF AND THE FRONT GATE


The officers take aim at the figure on the roof. Barry steps
in to stop them.
BARRY
Hold your fire! We have civvies up
there! I said stand down.
He looks up to the roof, where Emily now tries to talk
Charles down.
EMILY
Dont do this to your sister.
ARIA
You spent your whole life trying to
get back to your family. Its not
too late.
The officers below wait, impatient. Hanna takes her own stab
at A.
HANNA
Youve been such a bitch to us. But
we heard your story. We understand.
Charles pauses. Has he seen reason? Maybe. Or maybe not...
He holds his hands out to his sides. The girls surge forward,
all screaming.
HANNA, SPENCER, ARIA, EMILY, AND ALI
NO!

ACT ONE
OPENING CREDITS
Black screen. SUPER: Earlier That Night
EXT. ROSEWOOD HIGH PROM - NIGHT
The four liars stand in the mirrored area, just moments after
discovering Ali is missing. Hanna is on the phone.
HANNA
No answer.
EMILY
Try again.
She hangs up, but is already dialing again.
INT. DILAURENTIS LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
The home phone RINGS. No one answers. Through an air vent, we
can hear PAM Fields and VERONICA Hastings calling from below.
PAM
Hello!
VERONICA
Open the door!
The answering machine picks up with KENNETHs voice.
KENNETH (ON PHONE)
You have reached the DiLaurentisEXT. ROSEWOOD HIGH PROM - NIGHT
The girls wait for Hannas response.
HANNA
Still nothing.
SARA finds the girls.
SARA
The guys are talking to Clark and
Tanner. Shes got a lot of
questions. For all of us.

4.

EMILY
We cant just stay here. We should
be out looking for her right now.
ARIA
Em. Look, we have to believe
Charles isnt going to hurt Alison.
Shes his sister.
Emily is having none of it.
EMILY
Charles drove his car through my
house, okay? I believe hell hurt
anybody who gets in his way.
A RUSTLING behind the girls. Aria looks up to the mirror in
front of her and sees a red figure moving behind them.
ARIA
Guys?
The others turn toward her.
ARIA (CONTD)
Were not alone in here.
The girls walk toward the sound of breaking twigs where Aria
has just seen the person walking. They turn the corner, but
its a dead end.
SPENCER
Are you sure you saw somebody?
ARIA
Yeah. Im sure.
EMILY
Great. Nice to know A perfected
that disappearing act from
Ravenswood.
A CLANG makes everyone look behind Aria and Hanna. A lattice
wall opens remotely and hidden passageway is revealed. The
girls step through the opening.
INT. HALLWAY - NIGHT
The girls now walk down a hall behind the scenes of the prom
maze. A shadow appears on the wall before them, and then-A FIGURE in a bright red cloak and terrifying wolf mask
turns the corner.

5.

The figure reaches for the mask and pulls it off, revealing
MONA.
HANNA
God, Mona. You scared the crap out
of us.
MONA
Ive been following Alison since
yesterday morning.
SPENCER
So where is she?
MONA
I lost her when you guys jumped the
cop.
ARIA
You knew Clark was a cop?
MONA
Aria, maybe you thought he was
always happy to see you, but I
could never get past the bulge in
his pants.
An electronic CHIME. Mona pulls a tablet from her cloak.
SPENCER
What is that?
Mona unlocks the screen and starts analyzing it.
MONA
Ive been tracking all of Alisons
incoming and outgoing messages
since she came back. Yesterday, she
started getting texts from Charles.
SPENCER
So youve been tracking him?
MONA
Charles has a smokescreen up to
prevent someone tracking him, so I
had to code an algorithm to find
him.
On the tablet screen, the program has almost finished
running.
EMILY
So you know where he is now?

6.

Spencer comes to look over Monas shoulder.


SPENCER
Wait. I know that address.
MONA
Id be disappointed if you didnt.
Its not a place you forget easily.
HANNA
Does anyone want to tell us what
the magical computer said?
Spencer and Mona exchange a look.
SPENCER
Charles is at Radley.
MONA
He wants to take this back to where
it all began.
INT. HASTINGS KITCHEN - NIGHT
A key turns in the lock and the door opens. MELISSA Hastings
enters her parents home. She looks anxious.
MELISSA
Hello?
She puts her keys on the counter and notices the four glasses
of wine on the island.
MELISSA (CONTD)
Mom?
She crosses to the bannister and calls up the stairs.
MELISSA (CONTD)
Mom? Spencer?
When no one answers, she pulls out her phone and dials her
mother. Veronicas phone RINGS from the kitchen counter.
INT. BARN - CONTINUOUS
Melissa throws the door to the barn open, finding the music
still playing and the lights still on. But no girls or
parents. Melissa calls someone else.

7.

INT. HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS


Spencers phone RINGS. Caller ID tells her it is Melissa. She
ignores the call.
INT. BARN - CONTINUOUS
Melissa speaks into her phone.
MELISSA
Spencer, please. Call me back as
soon as you get this. Its
important. Theres something I need
to tell you.
INT. HALLWAY - CONTINOUS
Hanna looks at Spencer.
HANNA
Was that Toby?
SPENCER
No. Melissa.
EMILY
We cant wait here any longer. We
know were Ali is and Im going
after her.
Emily starts to leave.
SPENCER
Emily, wait.
Emily stops.
EMILY
Why?
SPENCER
Lets just think about this for a
minute.
EMILY
Alison might not have minute.
MONA
Charles wont hurt her. Not
intentionally.

8.

EMILY
Im sorry if I dont put my faith
in a guy who stuck us underground
for a month and put chips in our
necks.
MONA
Then put your faith in me.
ARIA
Maybe not the best alternative,
Mona.
MONA
Im serious. When I worked for
Charles, the golden rule was that
we would never really hurt Alison.
Or you girls.
Emily isnt convinced.
EMILY
A attacked Alison in her house
one night!
MONA
But she wasnt seriously hurt.
Ever.
SPENCER
Emily, listen to me. Charles isnt
an idiot. If we found him at
Radley, it was only because he let
us. No offense, Mona.
MONA
None taken. I think.
SPENCER
A is always twenty steps ahead of
us. This feels like another trap.
EMILY
Does it matter? Its Alison.
ARIA
And well get her back. But when
has working by As rules ever
helped any of us?
SPENCER
Look, I know that youre worried-

9.

EMILY
Im not worried. Im freaking
terrified.
SPENCER
But we cant go alone. Just give me
a few minutes. Let me go find Toby
and Tanner. They can come with us.
SARA
Ill go with you.
The other girls are taken aback.
EMILY
You will?
SARA
Look, I dont really know Alison.
But I know you and I dont want you
guys to get hurt.
Spencer takes a moment to register the others reactions
before agreeing.
SPENCER
Okay. Sara will come with me andMONA
And he rest of us will go to
Radley. You two can meet us there.
ARIA
Are you sure splitting up is a good
idea at this point?
MONA
Relax. Youll be with me. No one
will even notice were there.
SPENCER
Monas right. You guys go. Charles
will be expecting you to run in
guns blazing. If we stick it out
and just watch, he wont know what
to do.
Spencer looks around for reactions as she speaks.
SPENCER (CONTD)
So thats it. Is everyone in?
Everyone nods with varying degrees of certainty. Except
Hanna.

10.

SPENCER (CONTD)
Han?
A moment of hesitation, but then Hanna answers, resolved.
HANNA
Yeah. Im in. Game on.
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Alison sits curled against a wall, her knees drawn to her
chest. She looks up at the only chair in the room. A sits
in his customary black hoodie, loading bullets into a
magazine.
ALISON
Why wont you just say something?
No answer.
ALISON (CONTD)
Charles, please! Talk to me. I need
to know why youre doing this. You
hurt so many people, ruined so many
lives. Why?
Still no answer. Ali is losing her temper. She raises her
voice.
ALISON (CONTD)
Tell me! Why are you doing this?
Charles stops. He picks up the full magazine and slides it
into a handgun.
CHARLES
Why do I do anything?
Charles reaches up and pulls back the hood, but his face is
still hidden. Until he spins the chair around. Its WREN
Kingston. With a shockingly American accent.
CHARLES/WREN
Im doing it for you.
END OF ACT ONE

11.

ACT TWO
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Wren peeks out the cell window at the streets below.
WREN
Theyre late. Why are they late? I
gave them everything they needed...
ALISON
Who? CharlesWREN
(shouting)
Thats not my name. Not anymore.
ALISON
It used to be. What changed?
WREN
Bethany.
He looks at her over his shoulder.
WREN (CONTD)
Bethany Young happened.
ALISON
The girl they thought was me? The
one who died?
Wren nods, looking out the window again.
WREN
She was as vindictive as they come.
But she had me completely fooled.
INT. RADLEY DAY ROOM - DAY - FLASHBACK
BETHANY, age 6, sits in the corner of the day room at Radley.
CHARLES, age 11, sits on a couch nearby, drawing in a sketch
pad. Hes drawing a picture of Bethany.
EDDIE Lamb approaches him and sits beside him.
EDDIE
Whatcha working on?
Charles doesnt smile or show any emotion. He just shows him
the drawing briefly before continuing.

12.

EDDIE (CONTD)
Youre pretty talented. Anyone ever
tell you that?
CHARLES [AGE 11]
(ignoring him)
Whos the new girl?
Eddie looks over his shoulder at Bethany, then back to
Charles.
EDDIE
Her name is Bethany. She was
dropped off this morning.
CHARLES [AGE 11]
Whats wrong with her?
EDDIE
You know I cant tell you that. But
she might.
Eddie smiles encouragingly at him and then points to the
drawing.
EDDIE (CONTD)
Im sure that will make a good
icebreaker.
Eddie claps a hand on Charless shoulder before leaving to
check on his other patients.
Charles looks down at the sketch and then closes the sketch
pad. He stands and walks over to Bethany.
BACK TO PRESENT DAY - INT. ROSEWOOD HIGH PROM - NIGHT
Sara and Spencer are walking back through the maze of
trellises on their way to Toby and Tanner. Sara stops
suddenly.
SARA
Wait.
Spencer stops.
SARA (CONTD)
Did you hear that?
SPENCER
I didnt hear anything.

13.

SARA
Theres someone here.
Spencer looks unconcerned, but calls out anyway?
SPENCER
Hello?
Theres no answer. Spencer waits for a moment before pulling
her phone out.
SARA
What are you doing?
SPENCER
Calling Toby. I want him to know
were on our way in case anything
happens.
Spencer unlocks the phone and we see her scrolling through
the contacts.
She gasps and the phone falls to the ground right before she
does.
Spencers been knocked unconscious. Behind where she was
standing, we see Sara standing with an empty syringe in her
hand.
Sara looks down at the phone, already dialing out.
EXT. ROSEWOOD HIGH PROM - NIGHT
TOBY stands with CALEB, TANNER, CLARK, and LORENZO, talking.
Tobys phone RINGS. He steps away to answer it.
TOBY
Spencer? Whats wrong?
Theres no answer. Caleb, hearing Tobys distress, steps over
to him.
TOBY (CONTD)
Spencer, talk to me.
CALEB
Toby?
Tanner, Lorenzo, and Clark watch Toby intently, knowing that
the situation has gone from bad to worse.

14.

TANNER
Cavanaugh?
Toby starts walking to one of the unmarked police cars that
have pulled up, the phone still at his ear. Caleb and the
others follow him.
TOBY
Somethings wrong. We need to get a
trace on Spencers phone. The
others, too.
Caleb pulls out his phone.
CALEB
Already on it.
LORENZO
Youre tracking their phones?
CALEB
And their cars. Ever since the
Dollhouse.
TANNER
You and I need to have a talk about
something called the law later.
Where are they?
CALEB
Theyre moving. Hanna, Aria, and
Emily are with Mona. But Spencer
isnt with them.
TANNER
What about Harvey?
CALEB
I dont know.
LORENZO
Youre not tracking her too?
CALEB
I was. I am.
CLARK
So maybe the phones just off?
CALEB
No. This tracking software would
still pick her up. She had to have
deactivated it.

15.

TOBY
Or had someone do it for her.
LORENZO
You think shes working with him?
Alisons brother?
CALEB
This software was hard to encode.
It would take a genius to take it
off Saras phone.
TOBY
And we know Charles has a way with
technology.
TANNER
Why would Sara be helping him?
TOBY
A has a way of finding the one
thing someone wants and then
holding it over their head until
theyre asking him how high?.
LORENZO
We can ask her why she made a deal
with the devil when we get there.
Caleb, do you know where theyre
going?
Caleb zooms out on the map.
CALEB
The only thing in the direction
Hannas group is headed is Radley.
TANNER
Then thats where were going.
TOBY
What about Spencer?
CALEB
I cant tell yet.
They all get in their respective cars-Caleb with Toby and
Lorenzo and Clark with Detective Tanner.
INT. POLICE CAR - CONTINUOUS
Toby starts the car and puts it in drive.

16.

CALEB
Toby. Wait.
TOBY
What?
Caleb looks at his phone.
CALEB
Theres something off about this.
A is always careful with phones.
He left even Alisons here when he
took her.
TOBY
You think this is too easy?
CALEB
I think that Sara clearly isnt the
mastermind behind this. It took me
nearly two weeks to teach her how
to clear her inbox of spam
messages.
TOBY
So shes working with someone. We
know A likes working with a team.
CALEB
Yeah, and Im sure get rid of
their phone is the first lesson in
A school.
TOBY
So why didnt Sara?
CALEB
You said A has a way of holding
things over people. Blackmailing
them into helping. Maybe Saras
tired of jumping whenever A says.
Toby looks down at the moving dot on the map on Calebs
screen.
TOBY
Shes leading us to him.
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Mona, Hanna, Aria, and Emily get out of Monas car across the
street and around the corner from Radley. Emily has her phone
to her ear.

17.

EMILY
No answer from Sara or Spencer.
They both keep going to voicemail.
MONA
Im sure theyre fine.
HANNA
Or this was just a set up and A
was just waiting to get them alone.
ARIA
Hanna. Toby and Tanner are at the
prom. A wouldnt try to get past
them.
HANNA
Charles attacked a police van when
he took us to the dollhouse.
Emily dials her phone again, but it goes to voicemail. She
hangs up.
EMILY
And what if he was already there?
We could have missed him. We have
no idea what he looks like, who he
is.
MONA
This might be your chance to find
out.
Mona is looking around the corner at Radley. There is
movement in one of the upstairs windows. A figure stands
shadowed in the window, looking out. His face isnt visible.
The other girls all try to get a peek, but the curtain in the
window pulls back. Mona pushes them behind the building
covering them before A can see them.
HANNA
Mona, what the hell?
MONA
Hes expecting us. Hes up there so
he can see us coming. I dont want
him to know were here.
ARIA
So what are we supposed to do? Just
stand here? Hes got Ali in there.

18.

MONA
And hes either killed her already
or he doesnt plan on hurting her.
Either way, us going in wont help.
ARIA
You said you didnt think hed hurt
her.
MONA
I dont. But hes unpredictable. He
brought us all here because he
doesnt care about being
discovered. He wants to end the
game.
EMILY
And what does that mean for Ali?
For us?
MONA
If I has to guess? It means
someones leaving in a body bag
tonight.
EXT. DILAURENTIS FRONT PORCH - NIGHT
Melissa walks up the front porch steps. She raises her hand
to knock when she notices that the door is slightly ajar. She
pushes it open.
INT. DILAURENTIS LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS
Melissa enters the DiLaurentis home, looking around.
MELISSA
Hello?
INT. DILAURENTIS BASEMENT - CONTINUOUS
ASHLEY Marin, ELLA Montgomery, Pam Fields, and Veronica
Hastings sit on the steps in the basement. They hear
Melissas voice and jump up.
MELISSA (O.S.)
Mr. DiLaurentis? Hello?
VERONICA
Melissa!

19.

INT. DILAURENTIS LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS


Melissa looks around to find her mothers voice.
MELISSA
Mom? Where are you?!
PAM (O.S.)
Melissa, please!
VERONICA (O.S.)
Sweetheart, were in here! Please
hurry! Open the door.
Melissa turns

doorknob and pulls the door open. Her mother is
out.
MELISSA

Mom!
Veronica hugs her daughter as the other mothers come out.
VERONICA
What are you doing here? I thought
you were in London.
MELISSA
I was. Who locked you in a
basement? Wheres Mr. DiLaurentis?
ELLA
Id like the answers too, if the
universe is taking requests.
PAM
We can find out later. Right now,
we need to get back to the girls.
MELISSA
The girls. You mean Spencer isnt
here with you?
The mothers excange worried glances.
VERONICA
Theyre back at the barn.
MELISSA
Mom, I was just there. The girls
are gone.

20.

INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT


Wren still stands by the window. Ali is walking around his
lair now, looking for a way out but trying to make sure he
doesnt notice.
ALISON
I didnt know you knew Bethany.
WREN
Of course not. That would require
you knowing I existed.
Alison looks sorry for him for a moment.
WREN (CONTD)
Bethany reminded me of you. So
much. She was like family. I just
wanted to keep her safe.
INT. RADLEY DAY ROOM - DAY - FLASHBACK
Bethany and Charles sit together in the day room, Charles
drawing another picture of her (this time shes smiling).
Theyre laughing and having fun when a voice interupts them.
JESSICA (O.S.)
Charles?
Bethany and Charles look up to see JESSICA DiLaurentis
standing in front of them. Its visitation day.
JESSICA (CONTD)
Whos youre friend?
Charles stands up and pulls Bethany with him. She doesnt
seem to like Mrs. D.
CHARLES
Mom. This is Bethany. Bethany, this
is my mom.
Jessica crouches down in front of Bethany and holds out her
hand. After an encouraging look from Charles, Bethany shakes
Jessicas hand.
JESSICA
It is very nice to meet you,
Bethany.

21.

WREN (V.O.)
Every time Mom visited after that,
she visited Bethany too. Bought her
clothes that she bought you.
BACK TO PRESENT DAY - INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Wren is looking at a photo album page with a photo of his
mother on it. Hes pointing to her with the tip of the gun.
WREN (CONT.)
I think she thought that giving me
my own personal Alison was enough
to make me forget about the real
one.
He looks up at Ali.
WREN (CONTD)
But there was never a comparison to
my baby sister.
ALISON
I didnt realize Mom and Bethany
were so close.
Wren smirks at Alison.
WREN
Well you have to be close to
someone to bash their head in with
a shovel.
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Mona watches the window from the corner. Behind her, Aria
hangs up her phone.
ARIA
Ezra said that he cant find Caleb
or Toby. Clark, Lorenzo, and Tanner
are gone too.
Hanna pulls out her phone.
HANNA
(dialing)
If A touches one perfect hair on
Calebs head, the cops will be the
least of his worries.
She holds the phone up to her ear and waits for an answer.

22.

INTERCUT - THE STREET AND TOBYS CAR


Caleb answers his phone.
CALEB
Hanna. Are you okay? What are you
doing at Radley?
HANNA
Mona tracked Charles here. Wait.
How-?
CALEB
I tracked your phone. Have any of
you heard from Spencer?
Hanna looks up at the others, worried.
HANNA
No. Shes with Sara. Why?
CALEB
Hanna. We think Sara could be
working for A.
HANNA
What?.
ARIA
Hanna, talk to us. What is he
saying?
HANNA
He thinks that SaraHanna is cut short when a cars lights shine on the girls and
they duck down close to the building. The car is coming down
the cross street, where it stops in front of Radley.
CALEB
Hanna? Whats going on?
Sara gets out of the front seat, now wearing a black hoodie
over her prom dress. She looks around for someone, waiting.
Emily starts forward, but Mona stops her, pointing down the
street.
MONA
Wait. Look.
A figure in a RED COAT walks toward Saras car.

23.

EMILY
Red Coat? I thought that was Ali
and CeCe. What is she doing back?
ARIA
And why is Sara helping her?
Red Coat gets to Saras car and opens the passenger door. She
leans in and helps a slim familiar body out. Spencer.
EMILY
Oh my god.
Shes still out of it, but Sara and Red Coat carry her
between them past the gates and into Radley.
CALEB
(on the phone)
Hanna?
HANNA
You were right. Theyre here. And
so is Red Coat.
CALEB
What? Okay, Hanna, listen to me.
Wait for us. Were all on our way.
Toby, Tanner, all of us. Just wait.
Please. Dont do anythingHanna disconnects the call. She looks at the others and then
steps toward the building. Mona holds her back.
MONA
What are you doing?
HANNA
Its not just Alison now. Its
Spencer, too. I cant just sit
around anymore.
MONA
We have toHANNA
No! Spencer and I have been through
Hell together. We all have. I
wouldnt expect the devil herself
to understand.
EMILY
Hanna-

24.

MONA
I know what I did. Im sorry. And I
know things just got a hell of a
lot worse, but we cant make rash
decisions right now.
ARIA
Han, you know Id never normally
say this unless heavy drinking was
involved, but I think Monas right.
Hanna looks at Aria and then Emily, who nods in agreement.
HANNA
So what are we supposed to do? Just
sit out here all night?
MONA
We wait. For Toby and the police.
HANNA
How didMONA
Caleb might have my phone tracked,
but I have half of Rosewood tracked
and bugged. Caleb and Toby are
almost here. Tanner and the others
went for backup.
EMILY
And what happens when Charles sees
them?
ARIA
Yeah, hes never liked us going off
book during his giant schemes.
MONA
He wont hurt us. He wont be able
to. And he wont hurt Alison. Im
sure of it.
She certainly doesnt sound sure.
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Alison stands across the room from Wren, right in front of
the door.
ALISON
Youre lying. Mom wouldnt have
killed anyone.

25.

WREN
She buried you alive, didnt she?
ALISON
She didnt know I was alive! She
was protecting someone.
The realization dawns on her.
ALISON (CONTD)
She was protecting you. Youre the
one who killed me.
WREN
Now, when you say it like that.
Alison turns around, jumps for the door, and throws it open.
She screams. Her way out is blocked by the woman in the Red
Coat.
INT. TOBYS CAR - CONTINUOUS
Toby is driving like the devil is chasing him. His phone sits
in a holder on the dash. Its on speaker and voices are
starting to pour through.
CALEB
Did you hear that?
SARA (V.O.)
I cant see where Im going!
WOMANS VOICE (V.O.)
Shut up!
Caleb and Toby clearly recognize the voice.
WOMANS VOICE (V.O.)
Just hold her.
CALEB
Isnt that-?
TOBY
No. It cant be. Shes dead.
Alisons

scream is heard again through the phone static.

26.

INT. RADLEY CELL - CONTINUOUS


Red Coat has left Sara to carry all of Spencers weight now
that theyre inside Radley. She regards Ali and speaks with
the same familiar voice.
RED COAT
Alison. I dont think weve been
formally introduced.
Red Coat pulls back her hood, revealing dark hair and an
impossible face. Red coat is MAYA St. Germain!
MAYA
My name is Maya.
END OF ACT TWO

27.

ACT THREE
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Alison backs away from the door as Maya steps through. Sara
follows, dragging Spencer with her. Wren waves his gun at
them loosely.
WREN
Youre late.
SARA
Sorry. Waiting for those bitches to
make a decision by themselves is
like waiting for grass to grow
backwards.
MAYA
But were here now. No harm done.
Wren indicates Spencer with the gun.
WREN
Only literally.
Sara sets Spencer down, leaning her against a wall. Alison
goes to her friend.
ALISON
What are you doing with Spencer?
WREN
All in due time, little sister.
MAYA
God. Youre so dramatic. Just get
to it already.
ALISON
Would someone please tell me whats
going on?
(to Maya)
Youre dead. Emily told me.
MAYA
Funny. She said the same thing
about you.
ALISON
My brother tried to kill me an my
mother buried me alive.
(MORE)

28.

ALISON (CONT'D)
My only choice was to run. Whats
your excuse?
MAYA
(to Wren)
You havent even gotten that far
yet?
WREN
We were working on it. Until you
interrupted.
MAYA
The only thing she was working on
was getting away.
WREN
I could have stopped her.
MAYA
But you didnt. And now were
running out of time. She doesnt
need your life story. Just tell her
whats important. The Queen is
getting impatient with you.
ALISON
Im notMAYA
I wasnt talking about you.
(to Wren)
Talk.
Theres a moment of silent communication between Wren and
Maya before he turns to Alison. He sighs.
WREN
I guess its time you found out
what happened that night.
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
An unmarked police car pulls up near the girls. Caleb is the
first one out. He goes to Hanna and hugs her.
CALEB
Thats a first. You actually
managed not to run into danger
headfirst without thinking.
MONA
With a little outside motivation.

29.

Caleb nods to Mona in thanks.


Toby joins them.
TOBY
I called Tanner but she didnt
answer. They should be here by now.
MONA
Theyre at the police station. My
guess is reinforcements.
ARIA
Its not a bad idea. I mean, Sara,
Charles, Red Coat, theyre all
here.
HANNA
I thought wed seen the end of that
last season jacket when we found
Ali and CeCe.
MONA
There had to have been another one.
Toby and Caleb exchange a look.
MONA (CONTD)
Okay, Rocky and Bullwinkle. Whats
with the brooding faces?
Beat.
CALEB
We know who Red Coat is.
HANNA
How?
Toby holds out his phone. Its still on speaker, but the
voices are too quiet to hear.
TOBY
Spencer called me, but she never
said anything. But the call never
ended, either. We can still hear
everything going on in there.
He looks at Caleb who nods. Then he turns up the volume.
WREN (V.O.)
When my mother sent me to Radley-

30.

HANNA
(overlapping)
Wait who is that?
CALEB
Shh. Wait for it.
MAYA (V.O.)
Come on. A bit later than that. We
havent got all night.
WREN (V.O.)
You can tell the story if youd
likeARIA
(overlapping)
But that sounds just like...
Everyone looks at Emily.
EMILY
Maya. Its Maya.
Beat. Then, Aria turns on Mona.
ARIA
Did you know about this?
Mona looks angry, but not at the accusation.
MONA
No. I didnt.
CALEB
They found Mayas body the night
you ended your game.
TOBY
No one could have gotten something
like this past you.
MONA
Well they did. Sorry I was
otherwise occupied that night.
ARIA
Yeah, trying to run Spencer off a
cliff.
HANNA
Mona. Its alright. You can tell
us.

31.

MONA
I dont know, Hanna. I swear I
dont.
She peeks around the corner at Radley.
MONA (CONTD)
But Id sure as hell like to know
how I missed this.
Aria rubs Emilys arm, trying to comfort her.
ARIA
Em?
EMILY
Shes alive. How can she be alive?
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Maya and Wren have ceased their argument. Now, Wren turns
back to Alison.
WREN
Bethany and I got really close
while she was in Radley.
Eventually, there came a time when
I was the only one who could calm
her down after her episodes.
INT. RADLEY HALLWAY - DAY - FLASHBACK
Bethany, now 11, screams at the top of her lungs. An ORDERLY
is trying to hold her down while another is trying to get her
to calm down. A nurse holds a syringe that she is trying to
stick Bethany with. Bethany thrashes against them violently.
Charles arrives, pushing past the orderlies to get to her. He
whispers to her to calm her.
WREN (V.O.)
I actually felt like I meant
something to someone.
BACK TO PRESENT DAY - INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Alison still sits by Spencer, listening. Maya is browsing
Wrens lair. Sarah is standing near the door with her hand in
the pocket holding Spencers phone.

32.

WREN
But then Mom showed up one night
out of the blue. It was about five
years after Bethany got there. She
told me that I had to leave with
her and that I couldnt tell anyone
where I was going. I left a note
with Eddie anyway, hoping hed give
it to Bethany.
EXT. STREET - CONTINUOUS
The girls, Toby, and Caleb listen to the conversation.
WREN
So I got shipped off to London to
some old friends Id never met. Got
a pretty new name to match. Learned
to make tea, perfect a British
accent, and how to make a fake
medical degree, among other things.
I was actually enjoying my life.
Trying to forget who I was.
INT. RADLEY CELL - CONTINUOUS
Wrens phone goes off as he gets a text message. He walks to
the window again and peers out.
WREN
And then that stupid bitch got
herself killed.
ALISON
Bethany?
Wren shakes his head no.
WREN
Marion Cavanaugh.
EXT. STREET - CONTINUOUS
All eyes are on Tobys reaction.
END OF ACT THREE

33.

ACT FOUR
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Wren continues his story.
WREN
I was at Oxford when I got the
phone call. Bethany had gone off
the rails again. Worse than ever.
Eddie Lamb found my number and
asked me to come back. They were
worried she was going to hurt
herself.
EXT. ROOF - NIGHT
The door to the roof of Radley opens. Bethany, age 15, comes
through it.
WREN (V.O.)
Eddie snuck her up to the roof that
night to meet me. No one ever went
up there, especially not at night.
No one should have been there.
Bethany looks around the roof.
BETHANY [AGE 15]
Charlie?
Charles, age 20, steps out of the shadows.
WREN
No one really calls me that
anymore.
Bethany spins around to see him.
BETHANY [AGE 15]
Yeah, well I used to call you my
friend. Guess I cant call you that
either.
Charles (Wren) pushes her away.
WREN
Bethany.
Bethany stares at him.

34.

BETHANY [AGE 15]


You left. Why?
Wren cant answer.
WREN
Im not here to talk about me.
Eddie called me. Hes worried.
Bethany scowls.
BETHANY [AGE 15]
I should have known. What is this,
an intervention?
WREN
Depends. Have you been taking your
medication like youre supposed to?
The roof door opens and Wren pulls Bethany into the shadows
with him. Marion comes out. She walks directly to the edge of
the roof.
WREN (CONTD)
(whispering)
Marion. Damn it. She cant see me
here.
Bethany pulls away from him to go to Marion.
BETHANY [AGE 15]
Ms. Marion?
Wren stays hidden, watching.
MARION
Bethany, sweetheart. You shouldnt
be up here. Its dangerous.
BETHANY [AGE 15]
Yes. It is.
In a flash, Bethany has grabbed on to Marions shoulders.
Wren runs to Bethany, no longer caring about being seen.
WREN
Bethany! Stop!
But he is too late. Bethany pushes Marion over the edge of
the roof. Wren reaches for her, but cant catch her. Marion
is dead.

35.

BACK TO PRESENT DAY - EXT. STREET - NIGHT


Tobys face goes white as he hears this news. This is the
truth. This is how his mother died.
EXT. ROOF - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
Wren grabs Bethany by the shoulders and shakes her.
WREN
What the Hell are you doing?
BETHANY [AGE 15]
She couldnt see you! You would
have gotten in trouble!
WREN
So you killed her?
He abandons Bethany to bang on the door.
WREN (CONTD)
Eddie! Eddie, help!
BETHANY [AGE 15]
If you hadnt left, you wouldnt
have had to sneak back in! Shed be
alive. This is your fault!
WREN
My mother sent me, away Bethany!
BETHANY [AGE 15]
Well then this is her fault!
Bethany goes to the roof door and opens it.
BETHANY [AGE 15] (CONTD)
And guilty people have to pay.
BACK TO PRESENT DAY - INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Wren, who has been looking out the window, now looks to
Alison.
WREN
I talked to Eddie later.
clear that if the police
out about Bethany, or me
matter, Id kill him. He
happy to comply.

Made it
ever found
for that
seemed

36.

MAYA
He was also under strict
instruction not to let her out. To
up her meds, her security. To make
sure she could never get out.
ALISON
Wait. How do you know that?
MAYA
Because she was my girlfriend.
A GASP comes from their side. Spencer has awoken.
SPENCER
Oh my God.
Wren looks at her, emotionless.
SPENCER (CONTD)
What are you doing here?
She looks around and realizes what is going on.
SPENCER (CONTD)
No. Please no. No.
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
The girls, Toby, and Caleb stand around Tobys phone,
listening.
HANNA
Wait. Spencer knows him?
ARIA
I mean, the voice sounds familiar,
but I dont know where from.
EMILY
Same here.
HANNA
Who the hell is this guy?
A car screeches to a stop behind them. Its Tanner.
TANNER
His name is Wren Kingston.
Shocked faces varying from just confused to vengeful play out
on everyones faces.

37.

TANNER (CONTD)
And tonight, his little game is
finally over.
TOBY
How do you know?
Another person exits the car. Its MELISSA Hastings.
MELISSA
Because hes got nowhere to run
now.
INT. RADLEY SANITARIUM - NIGHT
Spencer is awake now, and Ali is helping her wake up.
SPENCER
Why? Why would you do this?
WREN
Im sorry Spencer. I did genuinely
like your sister. And you.
He crouches down to her level and touches her face.
WREN (CONTD)
You were just lovely. After Alison
died, Bethany went missing. So I
decided to stay around Rosewood in
case she went after my family.
Honestly, I never planned to use
you.
EXT. STREET - CONTINUOUS
Tanner speaks to Toby.
TANNER
Were going in as soon as the state
police get here.
ARIA
Guys, wait a second. Are you
listening to this?
INT. RADLEY CELL - CONTINUOUS
ALISON
I still dont understand. Why would
you kill me?

38.

WREN
I thought you were Bethany.
MAYA
Bethany wanted a night out of
Radley. I was in town visiting some
friends for Labor Day and I wanted
her with me. So, I borrowed a badge
from my friend Eddie and broke her
out for a night. I didnt know what
she was going to do.
WREN
Eddie called me that night. He told
me Bethany had escaped. I was
worried.
(to Ali)
About you, Mom. Jason. So I went
after her.
EXT. DILAURENTIS FRONT LAWN - FLASHBACK
From the earlier episodes, we see Alison walking toward her
house, her mother watching from the window.
WREN (V.O.)
I thought you were her. I hadnt
seen you in so long and you looked
so much like her.
Wren sneaks up behind Alison and strikes her with a rock.
Jessica runs outside to her daughter.
JESSICA
My baby. Oh my God, Alison. Alison,
please. Wake up. No!
(to Wren)
What have you done?
BACK TO PRESENT DAY - EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Melissa speaks with Aria and the others.
ARIA
Did you know?
MELISSA
I found out after they found
Detective Wildens body. Wren had
already asked me to tell people
that he was in London with me, but
I didnt think much of it.
(MORE)

39.

MELISSA (CONT'D)
But then he brought me back just to
wear a stupid costume to Wildens
funeral.
EMILY
You were the one in the Black Veil
costume?
Melissa nods.
HANNA
Why would you do that?
MELISSA
He wanted to make sure he was dead.
That he couldnt hurt Ali. CeCe had
told him everything.
ARIA
So Cece is working with him?
MELISSA
More like for him. Wren had
something on everyone. He
blackmailed whoever he wanted into
doing his dirty work?
CALEB
But why? Why did he do any of this?
Spencer and Alison are both crying as they listen.
WREN
I swear, I never meant to hurt you.
I just wanted to keep you safe.
ALISON
(choked up)
What about Bethany?
EXT. DILAURENTIS BACK YARD - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
Jessica sits in her backyard crying. Bethany, age 17,
approaches.
BETHANY [AGE 17]
What have you done?
Jessica looks up at her.
JESSICA
Bethany?

40.

BETHANY [AGE 17]


Your own daughter. You have to be
punished.
Bethany attacks Mrs. DiLaurentis and Jessica pushes her to
the ground, where she hits her over the head with the shovel
used to bury Alisons body.
BACK TO PRESENT DAY - INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Maya is now crying as well.
WREN
Mom didnt tell me until it was too
late what had happened. Maybe if
she had I never would have been in
Rosewood. None of this would be
happening.
ALISON
Did you kill her, too?
WREN
No. I was too busy looking for you.
Mona told me when she came into
Radley that she knew you were still
alive. And that she thought the
girls knew where you were.
SPENCER
Thats why? Thats why youve been
torturing us? Why youve ruined our
lives?
WREN
What would you do for your sister,
Spencer?
Beat.
SPENCER
The messages didnt end when you
got her back! None of it did.
WREN
She was found, but I didnt have
her back yet. I needed you girls
for that. To keep her here, to find
out about me. So that we could be a
family again.

41.

EXT. STREET - NIGHT


Melissa addresses the girls while Tanner, Clark, and Lorenzo
discuss their plan.
MELISSA
Ive known for months now.
ARIA
We were stuck in the dollhouse for
weeks. Why didnt you tell anyone?
MELISSA
Because Colin warned me not to.
HANNA
Who the hell is Colin?
MONA
Wren and Melissas roommate in
London.
MELISSA
He was also Wrens friend from
boarding school there. They were
close. He made it clear that, if I
told anyone the truth, one of you
was going to get hurt. I couldnt
let that happen.
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
ALISON
If you didnt kill Mom, who did?
Wren looks to Maya.
SPENCER
Maya?
ALISON
Why?
Maya looks guilty and shies her eyes away.
MAYA
Bethany was my girlfriend. Somehow
I just knew that she was the one
buried in Alisons grave. I needed
that closure.
(MORE)

42.

MAYA (CONT'D)
But Wilden and half of the police
had secrets that they could bury if
it was Alisons name was on that
tombstone and not some escapee from
Radley. A told me Alison was
alive. She gave me what I needed to
find her, but it wasnt enough. Her
bones still had someone elses name
on them.
SPENCER
So you dug up her grave?
MAYA
No. Im the one that submitted the
evidence to the police that they
needed to exhume the body.
WREN
Im the one who dug it up. If they
dug up Bethany, eventually theyd
find out her relationship to my
mother. I had to make a couple of
alterations to the body before I
returned it.
ALISON
You two dont seem like friends.
MAYA
Were not. The enemy of my enemy is
my friend. But the person who holds
blackmail over my head is the one
who calls the shots I make.
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
The girls, still talking to Melissa, turn to Toby and his
phone in shock.
MONA
Theres another A?
MELISSA
No. Thats not possible. Id have
known.
WREN (V.O.)
No you wouldnt, Melissa.
Everyone turns to look at the phone in unison.

43.

WREN (V.O.)
When will you stop making the
mistake of underestimating me?
Mona breaks away from the others to look up at the window.
The curtain is open and Wren stands there, smiling, with an
arm around Sara Harveys throat, holding her in place. In one
hand, he holds the phone. In the other, a gun.
MONA
Guys!
The others look up.
EMILY
Oh my god. No.
WREN (V.O.)
And, as fun as this game has been,
Im starting to think that this is
the beginning of the end. Your time
is running out. As for Saras here,
well...
He pushes the gun through her hair. Her sobs are heard over
the speaker. As can Alison and Spencers screams.
SPENCER (V.O.)
Stop!
ALISON (V.O.)
Charles, no! Please dont do this!
WREN (V.O.)
Her time is up.
Tanner and Lorenzo act after only a moments hesitation. They
run towards the doors at Radley but its too late. A GUN SHOT
rings out and they stop in their tracks. One last glace up at
the window reveals blood spatter and a crumpled Sara at
Wrens feet.
WREN (V.O.)
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
The call disconnects.
END OF ACT FOUR

44.

ACT FIVE
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Emily screams and Clark comes to comfort her, holding her
upright.
MONA
(genuinely lost)
Why? Why would he do that?
TANNER
(to Lorenzo)
How far out are state police?
LORENZO
Ten minutes.
TANNER
Tell them to make it five or we go
in alone. Clark.
Clark raises his head.
TANNER (CONTD)
You make sure these civilians do
not move, do you understand?
Clark nods.
TOBY
Wait, where are you going?
TANNER
Inside. Im going to try to reason
with him.
There are various negative reactions. (No! Stop! Are you
crazy? Hell kill you!)
MONA
Charles is not somebody who can be
reasoned with. You have to know
that by now.
TANNER
Ive done hostage negotiation
before.
MELISSA
You dont understand. Hes off his
medication.
(MORE)

45.

MELISSA (CONT'D)
And there is something someone
knows about him that he is worth
killing my sister over. Maybe even
his sister.
TANNER
Im not going to let that happen.
No more deaths tonight because of
this kid.
Tanner turns away, more disapprovals being thrown at her, and
makes her way toward the front gate of Radley. Around the
time she reaches the halfway mark, another GUN SHOT rings
out. Tanner stops, and then falls to her knees.
They all look up and see the small hole in the Radley window.
INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT
Wren turns away from the window, smiling.
MAYA
What the Hell was that for?
Wren holds up his phone and waves it.
WREN
Just doing what Im told.
MAYA
Why would she tell you to kill the
girl?
WREN
She told me to kill anyone that
tried to stop tonight from
happening the way I wanted it.
He points the gun at Maya.
WREN (CONTD)
Youre not getting in my way, are
you?
Maya steps down. At this point, Alison and Spencer are
standing and cowering against the wall, Alison slightly in
front of Spencer. They are shell shocked.
ALISON
Whats wrong with you? You didnt
have to do that!
Wren grabs Alisons arm and pulls her away from Spencer.

46.

SPENCER
No!
WREN
Why cant you see that Ive been
doing all this for you! Everything
thats happened, all of this. It
was so that we could be a family
again.
Wren pushes her away angrily.
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Tanner groans and rolls to the side. Strangely theres no
blood. She makes her way to her feet then runs back to the
girls, who watch in shock.
ARIA
But how did you-?
TANNER
Kevlar. And now they think theyre
safe from another attack any time
soon.
(to Mona)
Youve got the cover you need.
Mona nods in thanks and the other look at her in surprise.
HANNA
Wait, what cover? What are you
talking about?
MONA
Come on.
She peeks around the corner of the street to make sure Wren
is still gone before looking back to them.
MONA (CONTD)
We have to go now if this is going
to work.
Aria, Emily, and Hanna look to each other and then to Mona.
ARIA
If whats going to work?
MONA
Were sneaking into Radley.

47.

INT. RADLEY CELL - NIGHT


Wren is falling off the rails. He runs his hands through his
hair in agitation and looks around, trashing his lair and
throwing things everywhere.
Maya, before watching to make sure Wren is distracted,
motions for Ali and Spencer to leave. They nod. Watching
Wren, they slowly edge toward the door.
Suddenly, Maya jumps forward toward Wren and tries to pry the
gun from his hand. Alison and Spencer take their cue and run
out the door.
WREN
Ali, wait! Please!
He pushes Maya off and the gun goes skidding. They both lunge
for it.
MAYA
Youre not the only one who gets
those texts!
They fight. He ends up with the gun. He points it at her.
WREN
I warned you.
He pulls the trigger. Nothing happens. Maya pulls the
magazine out from behind her back.
MAYA
Ive tried being dead for a year
now. Im not into trying it for
real.
She jumps up and knocks Wren hard in the face before running
out the door.
INT. DOWNSTAIRS HALL - NIGHT
Mona and the liars sneak through a downstairs hallway at
Radley.
HANNA
Got I can feel spiders all over me.
How did you even find that hatch?

48.

MONA
I always needed a way back in in
case power was out and my other
pathways were closed. That was the
easiest.
EMILY
Easy is relative.
MONA
At least it wasnt the sewer pipes.
ARIA
Are you ever going to explain what
happened back there?
MONA
I needed a distraction. Charles
would have overheard if we spoke,
so I did the one thing I could
think of. I wrote a note and passed
it to Tanner when she showed up.
HANNA
And she just went along with it?
MONA
I think she knows that Im smarter
than half of her department
combined.
Alison and Spencer round the corner. They stop when they
catch sight of the others, and then run forward to hug them.
EMILY
Thank God. Are you okay?
ALISON
No. Charles. Wren. Whoever he is.
Hes lost it.
SPENCER
We got away. Emily, it wasEmily looks over Spencers shoulder at someone.
EMILY
Maya.
The girls part, leaving an open path between the two.
MAYA
Emily-

49.

Emily steps forward and slaps her. Maya doesnt fight back.
After a moment, Emily starts crying and pulls Maya into a hug
anyway.
EMILY
I hate you. So much.
MAYA
I know.
All of the girls phones go off. A text.
MONA
Every game must come to and end.
ALISON
And every piece must fall but
one.
HANNA
A.
EMILY
(to Maya)
Who is she? You have to know.
MAYA
No one knows who she is.
ALISON
Guys what does this mean?
SPENCER
Every piece must fall. Its like
hes talking about a chess game.
ARIA
So Charles is in the game room?
MONA
No. Youre overthinking things.
Fall. Charles is going to fall.
ALISON
You think hes going to jump?
MAYA
The roof. Hes been up there a lot
recently.

50.

HANNA
You know what, hell no. Not after
everything this bitch has put us
through. He doesnt get to just
walk out of this. Or jump.
ARIA
So what do we do? For all we know
hes already jumped.
MAYA
He hasnt. Hed want an audience.
Hed need one.
ALISON
We have to stop him.
ARIA
How? I mean, were not in a
position to offer a lot of
encouragement for someone like
this.
ALISON
I dont care. Make something up.
MAYA
Do what you girls do best. Lie.
They all look up at her.
INT. HALLWAY - NIGHT
ALISON runs down a hallway at Radley, still in her prom
dress, ARIA, SPENCER, HANNA, AND EMILY following.
INT. STAIRWELL - NIGHT
The girls run up a set of stairs until they emergeEXT. ROOFTOP - NIGHT
-On top of the roof of Radley. Ali is worried, more than the
others. She looks around frantically until she finally sees
who shes looking for.
ALISON
Please! Dont do this!
CHARLES stands on the ledge of the roof, ready to jump.

51.

EXT. RADLEY FRONT GATE - NIGHT


Several police cars arrive at the front gates. Officers crawl
out of them as soon as they come to a stop. Among the
officers is Detective BARRY Maple.
BARRY
(into police radio)
We may have a visual on the suspect
on the roof.
EXT. ROOFTOP - NIGHT
The girls hold Alison back as she pleads with CHARLES.
ALISON
Ill do whatever it takes to help
you.
SPENCER
Look, just because we know who you
are, it doesnt mean the game is
over.
INTERCUT - THE ROOF AND THE FRONT GATE
The officers take aim at the figure on the roof. Barry steps
in to stop them.
BARRY
Hold your fire! We have civvies up
there! I said stand down.
He looks up to the roof, where Emily now tries to talk
Charles down.
EMILY
Dont do this to your sister.
ARIA
You spent your whole life trying to
get back to your family. Its not
too late.
The officers below wait, impatient. Hanna takes her own stab
at A.
HANNA
Youve been such a bitch to us. But
we heard your story. We understand.
Charles pauses. Has he seen reason? Maybe. Or maybe not...

52.

He holds his hands out to his sides. The girls surge forward,
all screaming.
HANNA, SPENCER, ARIA, EMILY, AND ALI
NO!
Wren stops when his phone CHIMES one more time. He pulls it
out and turns around.
WREN
(shouting at the phone)
What do you mean? You said Id have
this! You saidHe stops mid-sentence and looks down at his chest. Hes been
shot.
Down below, the officers all lower their guns. No one seems
to know where the shot came from. Until Toby doesnt drop his
weapon. Hes still aimed at the roof, his face set. He pulled
the trigger. Tanner approaches him.
TANNER
Cavanaugh.
He doesnt respond. She puts a hand on his to lower the gun
and take it from him.
TANNER (CONTD)
Toby.
He seems to snap out of it.
TOBY
Its over. Now its over.
FADE TO BLACK.
SUPER: ONE MONTH LATER
EXT. THE DILAURENTIS HOUSE - DAY
The girls are making their final preparations and saying good
bye as they all go their separate ways. As they leave,
Spencers valedictory speech is heard.
SPENCER (V.O.)
Its been a long few years. For
some of us more than others,
perhaps.
(MORE)

53.

SPENCER (V.O.) (CONT'D)


Ive had the best and worst years
of my life so far within the past
three years alone. But thats high
school, right?
MONTAGE - THE GIRLS LEAVING ROSEWOOD
-- Emily and Maya join Paige in California. Maya and Emily
are on speaking terms, but Paige and Emily are still a
couple.
-- Aria heads out to LA for her internship. Ezra is going
with her for the summer.
-- Hanna and Mona are both heading to Dartmouth together.
Caleb is in New York for work, but visits on the weekends.
-- Spencer has managed to get into U. Penn. and she and her
family couldnt be happier. She and Toby move in together
ASAP.
-- Alison leaves for France for a study abroad program.
END MONTAGE.
EXT. ROSEWOOD HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION - DAY
Spencer finishes her Valedictorian speech, and we see the
girls getting their diplomas and their happy times with their
families afterward.
SPENCER (V.O.)
I dont know where Im going to be
a year from now. I dont know where
Im going to five years from now.
We all make so many plans, but they
never really turn out the way you
wanted. But, Ive found that the
best moments we share with the
people we love, with our friends,
are the moments when we arent
trying. When we arent talking
about how we want to be happy, but
are rather laughing at some
terrible joke or at some weird hair
choices or whatever it may be.
The audience LAUGHS. Finally, we actually get to see the end
of Spencers speech. Her friends watch from the chairs and
the families watch from the stands.

54.

SPENCER
So, I think that, no matter where I
end up in five years, as long as I
have those moments where everything
seems like its going right even
when its going wrong? Thats what
truly marks success. It is truly
not the big things in life that we
will remember when weve lived it
to the end. It will be the little
moments, the short days and the
long days, the ups and the downs,
the friends and the people that
helped you get there. That is what
will always stick with you. And
that is how I hope we can all live
our lives as we move on to the
future.
The audience APPLAUDS. Caps are thrown into the air, and this
era of the Liars is over.
END OF ACT FIVE
