'Pretty Little Liars' Finale Scoop: 'We're Left With a Huge Cliffhanger,' Says Ashley Benson

Ashley BensonIf you're expecting some answers on tonight's summer finale of 'Pretty Little Liars,' well, you might be waiting awhile.

When we spoke with 'Pretty Little Liars' star Ashley Benson last week, the words "huge cliffhanger" came into play more than once. Though the actress did reveal that we'll get more clues as to who's been harassing the Rosewood ladies about their dirty secrets and their friend Alison's death, we won't actually find out much.

Want to know who A is? Too bad, you're going to have to wait. Want to know what happened to Toby? You're out of luck on that one, too. Want to know who killed Allison? Forget about it. Loathe to spoil the mystery surrounding the cliffhanger, Benson wouldn't even spill much about that, either, so you'll have to wait until the episode airs tonight to learn more.

Here's what we do know: "In the mid-season finale we're left with a huge cliffhanger," she said. "I don't know what's going to happen with that, because it's huge. We'll see what happens [next season], but I have no idea. I'm so anxious to see what the writers came up with."

Read on for the rest of the hints Benson gave us about tonight's finale.

So, what does the cliffhanger involve?
My character finds more information out about A.

Will we find out who A is?
No, [Hanna] just comes upon certain things, and she's getting clues to who it could be. She's still trying to figure it all out. But she's dealing with a lot.

Is Toby going to come back at all?
I'm not sure. I'm pretty sure he might, but I don't know. We're really left not knowing what happened to him.

Is getting on the track of A also getting on the track of who killed Alison?
Um, yeah.

So do we find out who killed Alison?
No. I don't know when we'll figure out who A is or who killed Alison. We'll see how quickly the writers go with that -- I'm just as clueless as you are.

So do you think A will be the same as in the books, or do you think they're going to go a completely different route?
You know, I really hope [it'll be different]. The A in the books was insane -- I didn't even know that that could be true! We'll see what path they take it on, but either way, [the writers] are fantastic and they're doing a great job.

We know there's a big cliffhanger that won't be resolved, but what do we find out in the finale
?
At the end of the season, we'll find out certain secrets that'll carry on into the next 12 episodes, And that's pretty much it. There are a lot of big events that happen in the last episode, so that will change a lot of what happens in the next 12 episodes.

So what was your reaction when you read the script for the mid-season finale?
I was shocked. We left the table read like, "Oh my god, this is insane." It's crazy. I'm really excited for everybody to see it and see their reactions. It's quite a thing that happens so I'm really, really excited.
