Spoiler alert: We've got the deets on last night's PLL flash forward

The Pretty Little Liars #5YearsForward premiere finally happened last night (to help kickoff ABC Family's new life as Freeform), and it seems like the liars are just as full of secrets as ever. If you haven't watched the ep yet, click away now because we're about to reveal some major spoilers.

Here's what you need to know: The episode begings back at Rosewood High School where we see Allison who has stayed in her hometown to become a teacher. The liars have all gone their separate ways—Emily's as a bartender in L.A., Spencer is a political lobbyist, Aria's a book publisher and Hanna has a serious NYC fashion career—but after hearing from Allison, they come back home to do her a favor.

Back in Rosewood, the girls team up to convince a judge to release Charlotte (a.k.a. CeCe, a.k.a. A) from hospital custody. Everyone but Aria makes it to the hearing and agrees that they can vouch for Charlotte's release, and when Mona makes a surprise appearance and speaks on her behalf, the judge consents to grant Charlotte her freedom.

But once our favorite four liars reunite with their family and friends, including Caleb, Toby and Ezra (though sadly all of your fave couples are no more—for now), the drama starts to heat back up. It's not long before the girls hear from Allison that Charlotte is missing—and that her body has been found in front of the bell tower at the church.

With another funeral in Rosewood, the town is ready to mourn Charlotte's suicide when the autopsy determines that she was dead before her fall from the tower, and her murderer is still out there.

So who did it? That mystery (and others) are still TBD. You'll have to keep tuning in to see what trouble Spencer, Aria, Hanna, Emily and Allison find themselves in next.

What did you think of last night's premiere? Did it live up to your expectations?
