Sasha Pieterse says Alison has forgiven Charlotte in Season 6 of Pretty Little Liars.
“Charlotte’s gotten a lot better, that’s kind of how we open. I’m asking the girls to basically come back and approve of Charlotte’s trial to be let out as a normal citizen, which is hard, obviously, it brings a lot of turmoil back.

So it’s surreal and it’s dark and it’s twisted and it’s hard to deal with.”
