If the mystery of Melissa Hastings on Pretty Little Liars has plagued you for years, take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone. Actress Torrey DeVitto is right there with you — and she thinks it’s time everyone got some answers.
DeVitto opened up about playing Spencer’s (Troian Bellisaro) big sis on the hit Freeform series in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Just like viewers who aren’t sure whether it’s safe to trust Melissa, DeVitto admits that she’s also still trying to figure out if her character is one of the goodies or baddies.
Regardless of whether you consider the eldest Hastings sister a hero or a villain, one thing DeVitto does want for her character before she exits the series is some answers.
“I want there to be a big reveal. I want it to be a good tying up of her and a good explanation of her,” DeVitto told ET. “I think everyone deserves an explanation of what she’s hiding, why she’s always been so secretive, and what makes her so edgy all the time.”
During the interview, DeVitto also referenced the huge revelation we got when we were all finally clued in on the fact that it was Melissa who buried Bethany alive in order to protect Spencer. That’s a pretty big secret to keep bottled up for so long, but DeVitto sounds pretty convinced that burying Bethany may not be the only thing Melissa is hiding.
“I thought it was enough that she buried the girl so, who knows what else she has in her closet,” teased the actress.
Pretty Little Liars returns to Freeform with new episodes on June 21
