If I missed some details this week, I blame PLL’s costume department. Aria’s outfit was so chic, such a wild upgrade from her high-school tutus and skulls, that I was very distracted. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to this week’s episode, which was full of plot twists, “burner apartments” (apparently the new phrase we’re using for “lair”), and homecomings I was not looking forward to.
What happens when a bad guy shares a drink with a probably-bad guy? Well, Pretty Little Liars fans are about to find out.
EW has an exclusive first look at the season 7 return of Sara Harvey in this week’s episode, and to make matters worse, it seems the Black Widow is meeting up with Jenna. As for what they’re talking about, it’s safe to say it’s not good for the Liars. After all, Jenna blames them for her blindness and there was that whole electrocution thing with Sara in the dollhouse. (Not to mention that Sara was working with Charlotte before her death.)
She’s baaack! As soon as one cruel nemesis found his way to a muddy grave (rest in peace, dirtbag), it’s not even 24 hours before another unfriendly face comes sauntering back into town to play some more of her games. Yep, that’d be Jenna, the woman who makes everyone around her shiver in their booties — and not just over jealousy for her sick sunglass game, either. She’s been M.I.A. for a while, but she’s not changed one iota in the five-plus years it’s been since the Liars last had to deal with her.
Spoiler alert: This post contains details from the July 5 episode of Pretty Little Liars.
Last season, Pretty Little Liars introduced Elliott Rollins as both Charlotte’s doctor and Ali’s future husband. Flashforward to last night’s episode and not only is he now the show’s biggest villain — sorry, Mary Drake — but he’s also dead.
EW talked with Huw Collins about Elliott’s fate, that final scene, and whether there’s hope to see him again in the future.
Back in the early days of Pretty Little Liars, friends and I always used to joke that the first 50 minutes of each episode were almost eye-rollingly boring, but then the final 10 were so ridiculously terrifying they forced us to tune in the following week. Those days have been slipping away for a while now, but after this week, I feel like they’re finally gone. So much went down in tonight’s episode — yes, especially that seemingly fatal car crash in the last few minutes — it’s going to take the careful sleuthing of a thousand PLL fans to figure out what’s really afoot now.
Well, it was a bad week for new loves, and an even worse week for Alison DiLaurentis (but isn’t it always?).
Pretty Little Liars’ seventh season is officially underway, and after its first episode, Hanna’s fate is still unknown, Mary Drake has officially made her return to Rosewood, and the Liars believe that Alison was responsible for Charlotte’s death. But how much of that is true, and what can fans expect from the rest of the season?
EW spoke with executive producer Charlie Craig about the premiere and what comes next.
Aaaaaand we’re back!
Pretty Little Liars has teased season 7 as the “deadliest yet,” but there was one death that was never going to happen, no matter how many hashtags the Freeform social media team created: Hanna. Last year’s season 6 premiere showed us a flash-forward in which the Liars, including Hanna, warn Alison of a mysterious “him.”
When we left the Liars at the end of season 6, Hanna had been kidnapped, and Mary Drake revealed herself to be Jessica DiLaurentis’ twin. Another twist? Elliott, Alison’s husband, got Ali to check herself into an institution as part of his plan with Mary to take over control of the Carissimi group. It turns out, Elliott had a past with Charlotte.
Other important tidbits: Caleb kissed Hanna despite his relationship with Spencer, and Ezria rekindled their flame.
“We’re running out of time,” Shay Mitchell says in this exclusive Pretty Little Liars preview video. “There’s an urgency to this.” While she’s referring to the season premiere’s ticking countdown clock as the girls try to find Hanna, she might as well be talking about the series in a larger sense.
“Season 7 is unlike any other season because it’s the end of PLL as we know it,” Lucy Hale says.
