Well, this episode’s purpose was definitely to build tension—but not to come to any conclusions. Kind of figured this was the point when black-hooded “A” appeared right smack in the middle of the show, as opposed to showing up in the last 10 chilling minutes. (I mean usually the last 10 are chilling. Tonight, not so much.)
Anyone else breathing a little sigh of relief knowing the summer finale is in sight? It’s not that I don’t love the show — though at this point, my “love” might be better described as Stockholm Syndrome — but I just want to see Charles’ freaking FACE. And even though for six years it’s felt like the Liars were getting “so close” to discovering “A’s” identity pretty much every episode, this week it actually did feel close. But of course, not close enough.
Well, it was fun thinking Lesli was “A” for a hot second, but now we’re back in Crazytown, with a capital-C for Charles… more on that soon. (Also did NOT realize Lesli’s name was spelled like that. Makes me hate her more.)
Comic-Con is in many ways about celebrating the fans of beloved movies and TV shows as much as the works themselves, so MTV continued its tradition of honoring those who fill Tumblr, Twitter, and more with their love during the second annual Fandom Awards.
The Hunger Games came out on top with the Fandom of the Year award, beating out 31 other nominees, including finalists Orange Is the New Black, Teen Wolf, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
On Wednesday, someone created a Reddit AMA claiming that they had been a PA on the set of Pretty Little Liars before they were fired for failing a drug test. And to get revenge on Warner Bros., said person decided to dish out a handful of supposed spoilers from the show’s season 6 finale, which will reveal the long-awaited identity of “A.”
However, the user deleted his or her identity, and fans quickly started questioning the legitimacy of the spoilers.
On Tuesday, Pretty Little Liars’ opening scene was unlike anything the show had done before: The viewer was taken inside Spencer’s mind as she watched a young girl – played by Maddie Ziegler – dance around a creepy room in what appeared to be Charles’ dollhouse.
It certainly wasn’t what fans of the show were used to, but it did get them talking. And as it turns out, it’s actually been in the works since last season.
Sometimes you get rewarded when you forget to check social media for a few days. Case in point: I was totally shocked when the creepy, ghoulish, dancing girl at the beginning of the episode turned out to be none other than Sia video staple Maddie Ziegler. Her nightgowned demonry seemed like it came straight out of The Ring or The Grudge—meaning some of us can probably expect a chilling encore in our dreams tonight…
After a couple weeks of almost normal episodes, I am shocked—SHOCKED!—at how much I missed crazy, nonsensical, terror-around-every-corner PLL. Spencer might have killed someone or something in the dollhouse? Bring it on! (Though it will probably end up being just as fake as the “torture.”) Aria is locked inside the darkroom at Hollis? Home sweet home!
This week’s episode starts off with last Tuesday’s closing thought: Andrew might not be as guilty as the Liars want him to be. If Sara was trapped for two years, they wonder, how could Andrew have been with her in the dollhouse when they saw him at school every day?
Well, Liars, tonight’s episode had its share of tired, familiar elements—a too-easy arrest, the ghost of Spencer’s “drug problem,” new characters I just don’t have the energy to care about yet—and some new ones, like actual torture, and perhaps a budding romance for Ali? Look, I was happier when she was mean, too, but she’s so boring as the saintly survivor. I’m ready for her to seduce Toby’s hot new cop friend, Lorenzo, whether her intentions are good or evil.
