What secret are the Liars keeping?
As we mentioned, the new Liars are being punished for the actions of their parents over 20 years ago. However, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t keeping their own secrets under wraps. In episode two of Original Sin‘s first season, the new friends decide to leak a drunken video of mean girl Karen (Mallory Bechtel).
Why? Because they all think Karen is responsible for their recent misfortunes. (Spoiler: It’s actually A.)
This is a lot tamer than the “We blinded Jenna” secret from Original Sin‘s predecessor.
Will Original Sin overlap with Pretty Little Liars?
Besides being set in the same universe as PLL, Original Sin doesn’t have any overt crossover elements—at least to start. But that’s not to say there won’t be some nods to the original series. Roberto teased, “A lot of big Easter eggs,” specifically highlighting a “big” one in episode six.
However, if you’re getting Riverdale or Chilling Adventures of Sabrina vibes from this show, know it’s on purpose. As Riverdale and CAOS creator Roberto detailed, the pilot director Lisa Soper was the production designer for CAOS, so “the high school in PLL does resemble the high school in in Greendale.”
So, maybe there are more than PLL Easter eggs to look out for? Tweet us @enews if you spot any.
The first three episodes of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin are available to stream on HBO Max.
