The identity of "A" was finally revealed on the second season finale of Pretty Little Liars Monday -- but that doesn't mean the girls of Rosewood are safe.
The cast of the hit ABC Family series -- Lucy Hale, 22, Ashley Benson, 22, Shay Mitchell, 24, Troian Bellisario, 26, Ian Harding, 25, Drew Van Acker, 25, Keegan Allen, 22, and Tyler Blackburn, 25 -- reflect on their favorite scenes with their longtime tormentor in the video (above).
In episode 14, "Through Many Dangers, Toils and Snares," Mitchell's character Emily Fields nearly comes face-to-face with the elusive "A."
"Seeing 'A' across the greenhouse, I was kind of freaked out, to be honest with you," Mitchell recalls. "Even though I'd walked on the set and there were a million crew members around, I was still like, 'Okay, it's dark. There's this person in a hooded outfit. Oh my goodness!'"
Harding, who plays college professor Ezra Fitz (and the much older love interest of Aria Montgomery, played by Hale) was particularly struck by a scene involving Mitchell's character.
"I love the part where Emily gets the box of cereal and it's all As. That's when I was really, really impressed with 'A,' because I thought, 'You spent months planning this one situation and it had to play out perfectly. She had to pick up that box of cereal in the lunch line.' I thought it was brilliant," Harding says. "That's when I was truly afraid of 'A.' When you do something that clever, you're dangerous."
