The post does contain spoilers so if you haven’t watched it and plan on (unless Twitter spoiled you- won’t be the first time), I won’t advise going ahead.
I remember spending a whole vacation two years ago binge watching Pretty Little Liars and that whole month revolved around the liars and then there were days of me looking forward to every Tuesday for a new episode. Basically , PLL has been a big part of my years and it’s making me way too emotional to even think of not getting to know any more of their story now.
So this episode has received a lot of negative criticism and I really don’t know how I feel about it. I mean look Charlotte was kind of a bummer so I wasn’t expecting something life changing but I was expecting something which would blow me away- possibly someone we knew ending up becoming AD but that didn’t happen.
AD was Spencer’s evil twin sister, Alex who
- Dated Wren
- Become BFF’s with Charlotte (she’s he
- Came back with the sole purpose of avenging Charlotte
- Wants to take Spencer’s place!
This twist definitely blew my mind and I kind of liked her backstory about loving Charlotte and wanting a family and friends like Spencer did and I absolutely loved the concept of her acting like Spencer but it was a little too late for that. It was just rushed and wow, the liars didn’t take more than an hour and a half to finally figure all of this out, including the fact that Spencer wasn’t Spencer.
SHE KILLED WREN!! What no! I loved him, that’s just awful.
Then there’s Jenna, the Jenna every body hates and the Jenna who hates everybody but all of a sudden she becomes the life saver (which I love her for) but why? What is her story? We don’t know.
Mona. What even? She’s still obsessed and playing with dolls but plot twist (not so much), they’re Alex and Mary (who were supposed to be in prison).
The ending with Adison and the same thing happening over again, they could have left it at the liars being happy and not make it so cliché god.
Also, what happened with Lucas? Where’s Jason? What was Jenna hiding? Why did she take Ezra into custody? How was Wren the twins’ dad if Alex killed him? Etc etc etc
On a happier note though, how adorable are these couples and friends oh my.I loved the starting and almost ending with Alison and Emily and their twins, Aria and Ezra getting married (my favorites!), Hanna and Caleb having a baby and Spencer and Toby getting their second chance at love. It was absolutely beautiful and I’m going to miss them so much, it’s unreal.
Also, someone mentioned how ‘two can keep a secret if one of them is dead’ makes so much sense now cause if Spencer was dead, no one would know!
I think the plot was really good but it wasn’t gone administered well and it felt rushed and just suddenly thrown and taken away. Gosh I don’t know ok, what do you think?
(For real , that’s my initial)
