"This is a perfect example of what we do on set – I don't know how I am so lucky," says Troian Bellisario, who plays Spencer Hastings (far left). "Pictured to my right are some of the best actresses I know, and they are also the coolest girls on the block. Also pictured: a cronut. Pinch me."

No Dry Eyes

"Troian and Shay look cozy on the couch," says producer Marlene King, "but this scene was no picnic. It's a finale moment worthy of big finale emotions. There wasn't a dry eye on set after this take."

Microphone Check

"You never know where they are going to put the mic pack," says Shay Mitchell. "Hopefully it’s not freezing cold!"

Troian’s Bestie

"Let me introduce you to my best friend, my coat. Sets are basically like meat freezers, because the crew gets hot working under the hot lights. If they are cold, they get to wear a coat. But me? I'm usually wearing some really tiny dress or skirt. So in between shooting, I basically live in a sleeping bag."

Noel’s Cabin

"Our wall of A's has grown over the years," says Brant Daugherty. "You might see these in the background once in a while if you look closely."

Priorities

"Shari Perry is doing my hair. She's the best – I adore her," says Troian Bellisario. "Hair is the number one priority on our show – sometimes it really seems that way – so Shari is always curling and fluffing. I'm always trying to run away, but she always catches me and makes me look great."

Digital Love

"Ash and I demonstrate our love for our iPhones here," says Lucy Hale. "I'm probably texting my mom. I talk to her all day, everyday."

Foxtrot

"The Dancing with the Stars crew came to visit me on set," says Brant Daugherty, who plays Noel Kahn. "We didn't have enough time to rehearse our Foxtrot that day, so I had to go over my steps between takes. When you finally see the scene we were shooting, you'll know how ridiculous that looked."

Hieroglyphics

"Paula, our script supervisor, teaches me how to read her notes," says Troian Bellisario. "I'm hopelessly lost but doing a good job of pretending. Seriously, it looks like hieroglyphics. . . "
