Naturally, the social media savvy stars shared the momentous experience with the show’s fans on Twitter and Instagram, revealing a few behind-the-scenes secrets — including Holly Marie Combs’ confession that she stole her character’s name tag. (Sure, it’s not exactly an A.D.-level scandal, but we’ll take what we can get at this point.)
But it was Lucy Hale who served up the pièce de résistance, a cute selfie of the five Liars — herself, along with Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, Troian Bellisario and Sasha Pieterse — after the table read. And we don’t think anyone’s going to blame them for sporting sunglasses; from what it sounds like, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
The second half of Pretty Little Liars‘ seventh season kicks off April 2017, followed by the premiere of Marlene King’s new show Famous in Love.
