9 Ways Mona Being Unmasked Affected The Liars At The Start Of Season 3

We were all pretty shocked to find out Mona was ‘A,’ but it shook the Liars to the core.


At the end of Season 2 we finally discovered that Mona was A! The Liars were upset, but also relieved because they thought A’s games were over at last. However, at the start of Season 3 it was clear that none of the Liars were coping with the aftermath very well:

1. Aria was having nightmares.
