Poor Alison. After everything she went through during Pretty Little Liars’ seven-season run, the premiere of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists saw her put Rosewood in her past and attempt to start anew in Beacon Heights. But that plan quickly took a turn for the worse.
By the end of the PLL spin-off’s first hour, Beacon Heights — where Alison (Sasha Pieterse) moved to teach at the local university — proved to be even more twisted than Rosewood. Not only is everyone on campus being watched, but one of Alison’s students wound up dead. (And unlike her, it looks like he’s going to stay that way.)
Alison’s one saving grace is that she isn’t completely alone in this new place. She’s got Mona (Janel Parrish) by her side, but as PLL fans know, Mona has her pros and cons. For example, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at episode 2, which shows Mona freaking out before Alison has to snap — or slap — her out of it. Watch the full clip above.
Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.
