The Queen of Hearts first appears in the Season 3's webisode "I'm A Free MAn". A different Queen of Hearts appears in the Halloween episode This Is A Dark Ride, during which they drug Aria and try to kill Spencer and Paige. In Season 4, it is revealed there were two Queens of Hearts, Darren Wilden & Melissa Hastings.
According to a caption from a photo by ABC family, the Queen of Hearts first appeared here, watching Noel and Garrett in the Rosewood Halloween Spooktacular Store and wearing a different outfit.
Mona tells the girls that she didn't try to push Aria off the train, but knows who did. She shows them a video of Wilden and a second Queen of Hearts, who Mona says is Melissa. However, before her face is shown the computer is hacked into and all the files are deleted.
It is revealed Melissa was indeed the second Queen of Hearts. She said she wore the same outfit as Wilden by accident, and then he forced her to help him into almost killing Aria.
