Season 6a picks up immediately after the Season 5 finale, no time has passed. After the girls try to escape the dollhouse in the season 5 finale, ‘A’ punished Emily, Hanna, Spencer, Aria, and Mona, subjecting them to various types of torture.

Is Andrew Charles, or on the A-Team? (He is not Charles, and doesn’t seem to be connected to the A-team.)
What happened in the dollhouse? (Charles made the girls play a game with switches, where they thought their answers would choose which girl would be hurt next. Lots of mind games. Seems like Spencer got the worst of it.)
Why does Kenneth lie to Alison about Charles? (He doesn’t want to tell Alison what happened, and thinks Charles is dead.)
Who is Sara Harvey? (Red Coat, Black Veil, and Big A’s sidekick, and most likely best friend to Charlotte as well. This is revealed in 6×10.)
Is Mona going to be charged for faking her death? (No.)

Why does Sara takes so many showers? (Sara knows who Charles is, and has been helping ‘A’ all along, but the reason why she would help is left open to question. Most likely it is because Sara is trying to trick the girls, and possibly reaching out to Big A while she pretends to shower. #ShowerHarvey)
Who is in the photo that was hidden inside a jar of buttons? (Jessica Dilaurentis, with her two sons Jason, and Charles.)
Ending: Alison and Jason confront Kenneth demanding answers about Charles. Kenneth finally gives in and starts telling them something, while a hooded figure watches them from outside.

Why does Spencer have a memory of the dollhouse where she is covered in blood? (Spencer has a flashback of her waking on the floor, panicked that her hands are covered in blood. It was never revealed that Spencer actually did anything, so at this time looks like it was just one of A’s head games to mess with Spencer.)

Was Charles a threat to Alison and Jason as children? (Kenneth tells Ali that one day Charles tried to drown Alison in hot water, later Charles reveals it was an accident.)
Ending: ‘A’ is seen having candy, and tracking the liars on a monitor, all the girls are home except Emily who is seen at the community pool.

Why didn’t Charlotte end the game when Alison came home? (She says “When your friends thought they killed A in New York, it was the perfect time to end it. I left the country thinking it was over, but the game is like a drug and I was really good at playing it. It felt good to succeed at something”.)
What happens to Charlotte after the police take her away? (Charlotte was sent to a different hospital and stays there for 5 years of treatment until her sister Alison attempts to get her out 6×11.)
