Pretty Little Liars Review
Pretty Little Liars returned in the second half of season six five years on from the big A reveal. The climax of season six was the reveal that Cece was in fact Charles and had been the one terrorising the girls (a reveal, I found in my opinion, very anticlimactic). The series returns in 6B to show how the girls’ lives have continued and how relationships and friendships have formed and broken down over these years.
The second half kicks off with Charlotte wanting to be released from the institute she is being held in. All of the liars return to Rosewood to give their say on whether she should be allowed to leave. Charlotte ends up being given her wish but sadly ends up murdered within the next few days. A new A starts terrorising the girls and a whole new string of events begins.
In the finale the audience is told that Mrs Delaurentis had a twin and she wanted to inherit he money left to Charlotte, Alison and Jason. With Charlotte dead and Jason out of the picture Alison’s new husband (Charlotte’s doctor) convinces Alison that she is crazy and, in the end, she sends herself into a psychiatric ward leaving all he money to her husband and Mrs Delaurentis’ twin who has been working with him.
I thought this ended on quite a high, exciting point. It is also known that he twin is not the new A either as they were seen dragging an unconscious Hanna through a church. This leaves a lot of suspicion including who killed Charlotte, who is new A and what will happen next.
The actual second half of the series was pretty bland wi a lot of relationship drama and back story. Even though the new A se,med to be a bigger threat they didn’t appear as much s they could have. It was more about filling in the audience with what they had missed over these five years.
I also worry about where PLL is going. Lucy Hale has been quoted saying she doesn’t want to do any more seasons after season 7 so if season 7 is the last one I don’t know how they’ll wrap up al the storylines and loose ends. The big A reveal was Ldeady very disappointing I just have to hope that the same can’t be said for the actual final episode of the whole show.
Pretty Little Liars is one of those shows that has a lot of high and low points and invests a lot in character development and the audience itself. Without the audience and their many theories the show wouldn’t be such a success. Let’s hope hey don’t disappoint their fans.
What did you think of the finale?
Until next time.
