Us Rating: ***

Air Date: Wednesday 10/19

The crafty teen thriller returns for one night with this special, a Halloween-themed prequel. It's October 2008: The almost-sociopathic Alison (Sasha Pieterse) hasn't been offed yet. But, unbeknownst to Aria (Lucy Hale) and their clique, she is being stalked by the same mystery killer who will one day put the girls' lives on edge. Silly horror cliches (flickering lightbulbs!) aside, it's fascinating to see how the girls formed secrets -- and enemies -- early on. (ABC Family, 8 P.M.)
