"Pretty Little Liars" fanatics are still talking about the shocking Season 5 finale, and it seems Shay Mitchell wasn't expecting all of those TV twists either!
toofab's Brittany Kyles caught up with the actress over the weekend at an event for Palm Breeze, where she spilled some major secrets about Mona's return, those "A" theories and the upcoming "PLL" post-college time jump.
During the finale, fans found out that Mona (Janel Parrish) has been alive the whole time. "A" (or should we say Charles now?!) faked her death and was holding her hostage in a dollhouse, forcing her to be his personal Alison DiLaurentis.
So, did Shay see any of this coming? The answer is ... NO.
"I was shocked," she told us. "I think that whole scene where we walked in and [Mona] took off the mask ... everybody was just shocked."
"I saw the fans reactions to it ... and no one expected it. It's what the writers do time and time again," she added. "They always figure out a way to come in and turn everything upside down. That's exactly what they did with bringing back Mona."
It seems the cast didn't expect to find out that "A" is Charles DiLaurentis, a character that no one knows much about.
"I definitely was [surprised]," Shay explained. "When we had the read-through for that, it was a big shocker for everybody. Now, the next question is ... who is Charles? Which we will all have to stay tuned to find out."

While the actress can't reveal too much about her "Pretty Little Liars" future, she's an open book when it comes to her real life.
She recently started a YouTube channel, where she shares tips about fashion, travel, fitness and just about everything else.
"I just want to be able to share my experiences with my fans ... that's why I started the YouTube channel," she said of her big social media presence. "I'm so lucky and fortunate to be able to have these amazing experiences, so I want to share it with the fans."
One thing she always documents is her love of food. So, how does she indulge but still manage to maintain that enviable bod?
"Everything in moderation," she declared. "You have to be able to enjoy pizza, which I do, and I love working out as well. It's all a balance. I never want to hold back from anything because I know I can work it off after."
