When someone talks about Pretty Little Liars our mind directly goes to the four liars or Alison- how she was buried alive, how she managed to survive and how she transformed into a better person afterward. Sadly, Mona Vanderwaal has always been an underrated character on the show. Everyone seems to be focussed on Ali’s redemption. But in the end, as we all saw in the finale, Mona gave us an incredible example of justice. Keeping this in mind, let us take a look at some best Mona Vanderwall moments from Pretty Little Liars.
“The Naked Truth” (Episode 19, Season 2)
This is one of the best episodes that gave us the first hint about Mona having a lot of A-potential. At “Truth Up Day,” Mona helps the girls hack into the school’s computer system at a really fast pace — Nobody knew that the designer-obsessed girl was actually one of the brilliant minds in Rosewood!
2.“UnmAsked” (Episode 25, Season 2)
Mona Vanderwaal’s ‘A’ reveal was really a turning point for her character. It is unforgettable how amazingly Mona revealed herself as A. In that particular moment- Spencer turning around to find Mona in A’s black hoodie was so freakishly creepy. It was really one of the best and most unexpected twists in the show.
3. “A Most Dangerous Game” (Episode 24, Season 3)
Mona is in full villain-ish A-mode in this episode but quickly realizes that she is being played along just like the others when she discovers that apparently, the new A was never going to reveal his/her identity. Mona yelling “We all are going to burn!” definitely scared the hell out of us.
4. “Blood Is The New Black” (Episode 2, Season 3)
“Crazy Radley patient Mona” is another one of the famous personalities of Mona’s. Her appearance in this episode is indeed scary.
5. “A Is For A-L-I-V-E” (Episode 1, Season 4)
It was one of the great performances of Janel. After helping out the girls deal with their dead Detective Wilden problem, Mona Vanderwaal relentlessly tried to be a part of the group again. We all felt sad for her as at that time she was balancing out her A-tendencies.

6. “The Guilty Girl’s Guidebook” (Episode 8,Season 4)
Mona shows that she’s the most dedicated friend when she not only tries to train Hanna to admit as the murder of Wilden and saving her mom from going to prison but to everyone’s surprise also confesses herself for a crime in order to protect both Marins. She convinced every one of her lie. This shows Mona’s capability to make anyone believe anything.
7. “No One Here Can Love Or Understand Me” (S05E11)
We see a weak side of Mona in this episode after Aria tries to sabotage Mona and Mike’s relationship. Till now, we don’t know what Aria whispered in her ear that made her cry. This is where we see that Mona is actually a sensitive person with a tough exterior.
8. “Taking This One To The Grave” (S05 E12)
When Mona almost won over the trust of the liars and decided to help them in taking down A, she gets “murdered” by a blonde girl in a black hoodie. Luckily, it was revealed later that she didn’t die — though, at the time fans were shocked. The entire focus suddenly shifted to the underrated character of Mona Vanderwaal.
