Which ‘Pretty Little Liars’ couples will get their happily ever after when the show ends?

Start speculating now.

Pretty Little Liars is notorious for creating a dozen more questions for every one it answers, so its no surprise that the Freeform show set up a big mystery even before it kicked off its panel at the fan-friendly PaleyFest on Saturday.

Before the cast (Ashley Benson, Tyler Blackburn, Shay Mitchell, Andrea Parker, Janel Parrish, Sasha Pieterse and Ian Harding) and producers (I. Marlene King and Joseph Dougherty) took the stage at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, audience members were treated to the first minute from episode 11 of PLLs seventh and final season.

This mere morsel of footage from the midseason premiere offered some reassurance as to how Keegan Allens Toby fared after last years bloody car crash (SPOILER ALERT: the Liars find him severely bandaged and maybe unconscious as he is wheeled through a hospital), but the clip didnt confirm the whereabouts of his fiance, Yvonne (Kara Royster).

In other words, were still wondering whether Toby will be available (after maybe some mourning and a lot of physical therapy) to reconnect with former paramour Spencer (played by Troian Bellisario, who, along with fellow star Lucy Hale, was absent from the festival). Luckily, King gave us a glimmer of hope.

All the [relationship] endgames will be the endgames, but nobodys going to get there super easily, King revealed in regards to fans favorite ships. Theres going to be some bends in the road to get to the happily ever after.

The starcrossed romance between Spencer and Toby or Spoby in PLL vernacular wasnt the only one that drew reflection from the panelists.

“Spaleb was fun to dabble with [but] Haleb is where it’s at, Blackburn said of his character, Caleb, and his dalliance with Bellisarios Spencer which was nothing compared to the time spent with his one true love, Bensons Hanna.

Mitchells character, Emily, has been out and proud since Season 1 and has also seen her fair share of love interests. The actress admitted that, to play a character that has an impact on a lot of people’s lives in a meaningful way has been huge.” King noted that Emilys relationship with Pieterses Alison (the pair known to the social media crowd as Emison) will also get some attention in the remaining episodes.

Alison hasnt dealt with her sexuality, King said. These 10 episodes are about Alison figuring out her sexuality and Emily plays a part in it. (Also worth noting: Alison is pregnant, but the father has yet to be revealed).

King stressed that these final episodes will be a gift to fans. After all, she said, these are people who have stuck with the show even though we had a dead girl who wasnt even dead for seven seasons.

Several characters have been or have been thought to be the mysterious villain “A” throughout the series, including Hardings Ezra and Parrishs Mona.

Yeah, that was fun, Parrish reflects on being the first big bad. It was also the scariest moment ever because I knew what it meant to give A a face.

PLL has now presented what King calls an uber A, known simply as A.D. She promised that the final reveal of our mystery stalkers identity will not disappoint.

The finale is a two-hour finale, she said. It feels like a movie and it was written as if it was a movie. I hope you guys are satisfied with this huge twist.

Its still unclear who will make it to the series finale in one piece, but Parrish may have let something slip when she said the final table read was particularly emotional because there were so many returning faces.

As fans reminded the cast and producers during the panels Q&A session, there have been rumors of another Pretty Little Liars spinoff series after Blackburns short-lived Ravenswood. When asked if there was any hope for an Emison series, Mitchell asked the audience if theyd watch (networks and studios take note: cheering ensued). But as for anything concrete?

Were open to pitches, King said.

Pretty Little Liars returns April 18 at 8 p.m. on Freeform.

In response to United Airline’s legging-gate, women are speaking out.

Two young girls wearing leggings were banned from a flight on Sunday morning due to a violation of the airline’s internal dress code. The situation, which was live-tweeted by activist Shannon Watts, sparked outrage from thousands on social media who called out the company for policing the girls’ attire.

Author Dana Schwartz was one of those that spoke out against United Airlines, and asked women on Twitter to share their stories of feeling “embarrassed” or “sexualized” for the first time because of what they wore.

“It was the 2nd to last day of school. HOT out. I was a beanpole, everything was short on me. They made me call my mom to bring pants,” she recalled.

“AND THEN when you DO grow up you reach the fun point when you’re embarrassed to go out with your dad in public bc people think you’re dating,” Schwartz explained.

These tweets sparked countless stories from women sharing similar experiences.

Carina MacKenzie summed up the majority of stories on the thread pretty succinctly:

Women of all faiths and backgrounds came together on London’s Westminster Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

With hands linked, they stood and bowed their heads at 4 p.m. in a vigil following the terror attack by Briton Khalid Masood on Wednesday that left four people dead close by.

The event was organised by the Women’s March in London organisers, who on Twitter asked participants to stand for five minutes in solidarity with victims of the attack, but also to “resist forces of fear and division.”

“It was so quiet and impromptu; just for a moment everyone was still. It was very emotional,” Reverend Anna Macham told The Guardian.

“I was so shocked by events this week and I wanted to stand alongside my Muslim sisters and show that what unites us is greater than what divides us.”

Powerful images of the vigil were shared widely on social media, where it has received plenty of attention despite the quietness of the gathering.

“Had no idea our low key solidarity event would make front page. Was a very moving tribute to victims,” participant Akeela Ahmed said on Twitter.
