    ...and yesterday the entire cast reunited!


    Yes! This isn't a trick from A, I promise!! All five Liars, as well as Mona, Ezra, Caleb, and show creator I. Marlene King were in attendance.

    Keegan Allen — who played Toby — was the only person missing and expressed his regret on Instagram, where he explained that he was in the forest with little to no internet capabilities.

    Ashley Benson said he'd gone "full mountain man."

    The cast chatted for a full hour and talked about everything from their favorite moments and awkward sex scenes, to wardrobe secrets and funny cast moments. Here are some of the best behind-the-scenes details they revealed:

    1. For one thing, yes, they all regularly stay in touch. It took I. Marlene King about "five minutes" to reach everyone in the cast, and Ashley Benson and Ian Harding said they had just been texting about Keegan essentially being a lumberjack.

    I feel like it would be a disservice to not share a picture, so here ya go:

    Movin' on along!

    2. Sasha Pieterse was only 12 years old when she filmed the PLL pilot.


    Marlene said that she was "so intimidating" and Sasha agreed, remembering, "Keegan was scared of me. Our first scene together, I was yelling at him. He was really scared of me, which I enjoyed."

    3. And Marlene finally gave an explanation as to how the moms got out of the basement...albeit a farfetched one.


    "There's a reason why Pam never drank after that. We decided they drew straws and Pam got the short straw, so she had to take off her clothes and they greased her up with some car oil they found, and she shimmied down some pipe and then let them out."

    4. Janel Parrish only found out a week before filming that she was going to be A.


    "I was truly terrified... We had a blast, it was really great." She added that she and Troian Bellisario filmed the A reveal on a 19-hour day.

    5. Troian Bellasario acted opposite another actor to help her pull off her twin scenes in the finale.


    "The day when it was just Spencer and Alex...we would rehearse the scenes. I would rehearse once as Alex and once as Spencer and we would kind of mark the movement. And then we had a really wonderful actress who would try to re-create that so I was acting across from her, re-creating my performance as each of the other sisters," Troian siad.

    6. Tyler Blackburn was a fan of the Spaleb storyline.


    "I thought it was a really great experience, personally. But I also feel like it mixed things up and, you know, caused a little backlash... I mean, I'm obviously a Haleb shipper, as they say, but it was awesome just to mix it up," he said.

    7. Sasha loved Alison's quippy one-liners and said her favorite scene to film was Alison being buried alive.


    "You know as much as I hated it while we were filming, I think getting buried is still one of my favorite scenes, just because it's something that you never really get to do. I don't think I'll ever be buried [alive] again, hopefully," Sasha joked.

    8. You can sleep easy, Spoby fans. Marlene King says "they're totally together."

    "I mean, they're endgame. They're together. I think that Spencer is definitely practicing law and Toby was building little mini houses for homeless vets."

    Never! Should've! Happened!

    9. The cast instantly and unanimously agreed that Ashley was the "filthiest" on set, aka girl has a potty mouth!


    She even agreed, "Oh yeah, me!"

    10. Troian cried leaving set for the last time.


    "I remember getting in my car leaving Smoke House and driving home from Warner Bros., and I was like, that's the last time I'm going to drive home. And I think I remember crying at like 4 a.m. just being like, I can't," she said.

    11. The cast loved eating chocolate almonds, cold brew, and apples with peanut butter. Ashley and Shay were also big fans of tuna on rice cakes with sriracha.


    12. Finally, the cast all agreed that they'd be up for doing a reunion movie!

    "I think if it does happen, it has to be pretty extreme. Like I want in the first 10 minutes, one of the people in this Zoom call right now dies," Ian said.

    TV movie or no, this show will always be there. That's immortality, my darlings!! We love to see it.
