Taylor allegedly committed suicide. However, it is revealed that she is actually alive and in hiding, while remaining in contact with her brother.
A year prior to Alison DiLaurentis' arrival to Beacon Heights University, Taylor Hotckiss committed suicide. However, unbeknownst to the public, Taylor had actually somehow faked her death and is currently in hiding with help from her brother, Nolan.
Taylor is very physically similar to Alison DiLaurentis, to the point that Alison mentions she could be her doppelganger.
Later, Alison does research on the Hotchkiss family and discovers that Taylor looks strikingly similar to her.
At this time, Nolan is meeting someone in a cabin out deep into the woods, while being followed by an unseen individual. He tells the person he is meeting that he broke up with Ava and the person tells him that when everything is over he can explain that he did so to protect her. The person is then revealed to be a very much alive Taylor. Nolan questions if they are making progress and Taylor says nothing stable, only that they can prove they are using Beacon Guard to spy on a select group of students. Nolan believes they need help in their plan but Taylor refuses the idea. Nolan tells her that he knows someone they can trust. Taylor tells him it is too dangerous, but he tells her he believes it will work. Taylor hugs him.
