Pretty Little Liars' third midseason finale is sure to be its juiciest yet!
In a sneak peek from the ABC Family hit, policemen remove a lifeless body from a grim outdoor crime scene; the victim's identity won't be revealed until the episode airs August 28. As one officer questions a blood-drenched Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), her BFF Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson) sobs uncontrollably while Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario) and Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale) do their best to console her.
"So the deceased was a friend of yours?" the officer asks a shellshocked Emily, who has trouble focusing on anything besides Hanna's anguish. "Miss, please. I'm trying to understand what happened. Did you know the victim?"
"Yes," Emily responds, still dazed.
"The deceased was a friend?" the officer repeats, though Emily doesn't reply.
Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC Family.
