If anyone knows how to keep a secret, it’s the cast of Pretty Little Liars. But during the 2016 Summer Olympics, the cast and crew made their support of Team USA known, even going so far as to invite the Final Five — the gold medal-winning gymnastics team — to visit the PLL set in Los Angeles.
When Pretty Little Liars showrunner I. Marlene King wrote the pilot for the series, she shared a few lines from the script to get fans excited. And as the show comes to an end — season 7, which returns for 10 episodes in April, will be its last — King has decided to bring back her tradition.
Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars summer finale brought its “A” game with multiple romantic moments, one death, one reveal, and a few life-and-death cliffhangers. EW got on the phone with the one person who’s definitely gone for good, Brant Daugherty (Noel Kahn), to talk about his epic farewell and his Uber “A” theories.
I’ve been staring at a blank screen for 15 minutes trying to parse everything that happened tonight. We got answers we weren’t expecting to get until next (the last!) season. We got relationship reunions all over the place. And we got way more deaths (and possible deaths) than I can even comprehend right now. Hanna kidnapping Noel feels like it happened years ago!
But obviously, it didn’t, so let’s get into the weeds…or the cobwebs…or the formaldehyde jars…of PLL’s last summer finale ever. I can’t believe I’m writing that!
So far, what we know about Pretty Little Liars’ season 7 summer finale is that it’s going to please three sets of shippers… and then kill someone in a groundbreaking way for the show. Let’s just hope those two events don’t coincide.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been seven years since Spencer, Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Ali first entered our lives, but it’s even more difficult to believe that after season 7, they’ll be leaving. With 10 episodes left in Pretty Little Liars’ seventh and final season, we have a lot of questions we’re hoping the show answers before we leave Rosewood for good.
Here are 13 of our top burning questions:
1. Who is Uber A?
It’s official: Once the mystery of Uber A is solved, viewers will leave Rosewood for good. Translation? Season 7 will be the last season of Pretty Little Liars.
Two secrets and a death. That’s the Pretty Little Liars version of two truths and a lie. It’s also what fans can expect from the season 7 summer finale. “One of the Liars’ life will change drastically after a certain reveal is exposed,” says showrunner Marlene King, before adding, “There are two big emotional game changers for multiple liars.”
What a night! New relationships collided with old, secrets (that I, for one, didn’t see coming) emerged, and Hanna showed her toughest side yet — but will she ultimately succeed in her plan?
The doctor is in! Julian Morris is set return to Pretty Little Liars as Wren Kingston in the second half of season 7, EW has confirmed.
There’s no word yet how long Morris’ arc will be this time around, but at least we won’t have to hold our breath looking for him between now and the summer finale, since showrunner Marlene King said back in June he’d turn up sometime in season 7.
