The hunt for Dunhill’s killer comes to an end as someone unexpected takes the fall for the girls, while other truths are revealed in the search for A.D.’s identity.
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 19, “Farewell, My Lovely,” Mary takes the fall for killing Archer Dunhill and Jessica DiLaurentis to save Spencer and her friends from going to prison, after Tanner and the police force catch them with solid evidence.
Who killed Charlotte? Is Loser Mona back? The preview for the next Pretty Little Liars episode promises to deliver on answers for these secrets, but it’s sure to leave plenty of questions for the final two-hour episode of the series on June 27.
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 19, “Farewell My Lovely,” the girls think they’ve finally figured out who A.D. is, but we all know that’s not true. The girls think Mona is back to her old tricks, which you know, maybe she is, but she’s not A.D., that’s been clear.
In the second half of Pretty Little Liars Season 7, Alison has been dealing with a pregnancy and everything that has come with it. Her new relationship with Emily, most importantly, but there’s a fact that the writers and fans are conveniently forgetting.
Pretty Little Liars unfortunately took the chance to explore a potential story with a twist they threw into the show to push together a couple instead. Alison’s pregnancy, or rather how it came to be, was completely looked over as all of the focus was put on Emily’s reaction to her best friend, and now-girlfriend, being pregnant with her child. Why isn’t anyone addressing the fact that the way the baby was conceived is sexual assault?
After Mona witnesses a chance encounter between Aria and the infamous, mysterious, and illustrious A.D., she’s set on proving to the other liars that Aria has betrayed them for a chance to get out of the A-game. Meanwhile, one couple gets hitched, while three other couples get gross.
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 18, “Choose or Lose,” A.D. puts the girls in an impossible situation: decide on one girl to take the heat for Rollins’ murder, while the others get to go free. If not, they’re all going down, which is clear with Tanner’s return and her, as always, stubborn persistence to believe that these girls are guilty of something. Even Tanner admits she doesn’t know what they’re guilty of. A+ police work.
Alec and Magnus’ relationship hits a snag when Alec betrays his partner instead of listening to his heart. Magnus, trapped in Valentine’s body must come to terms with a lifetime of pain whilst being tortured for information about the mortal cup.
On Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 12, “You Are Not Your Own,” the shadowhunters are battling a greater demon looking for the Mortal Cup. Simon searches for a way to evade Raphael. Izzy continues to struggle with her addiction. Jace makes a life altering discovery and Clary’s real brother invades the institute.
When all seems like it can’t get worse in Rosewood, a poorly timed proposal shakes up one girl’s life, while someone else is hiding a secret life from the rest of Rosewood. Who’s hunting for A.D. on their own time?
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 17, “Driving Miss Crazy,” Mary’s returns causes Spencer to question where her loyalties lie, while Aria continues to betray her friends for the sake of saving her relationship with Ezra and her wedding. And with Alison gone, Emily continues prepping for the baby (or babies, if you’re like me and have this unnerving feeling that Alison is pregnant with twins).
Another red herring is brought to the liars’ attention on Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 16, while Spencer is interrogated by the police when a mistake she made the night they covered up Rollins’ murder comes to light.
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 16, “The Glove That Rocks the Cradle,” the liars are faced with mistakes from their past, or more specifically, a mistake from their past that one of them made on a drunken night full of heartbreak and almost hook-ups.
Popular media doesn’t usually do a very good job at depicting eating disorders and the effects of them. Pretty Little Liars was no different in Season 1 when it attempted to delve into Hanna Marin and her journey as “Hefty Hanna.”
It’s crucial to note that while, at least, Pretty Little Liars attempted to tackle depicting an eating disorder, especially one aside from anorexia which is usually the only disorder ever mentioned, the incredibly botched attempt did more harm than good. Hanna Marin and her eating disorder got about half an episode of focus, and then it was dropped; the writers didn’t even do well diving into the type of “friend” Alison was for what she encouraged Hanna to do, and then they just tried to wrap it all in a tiny bow.
For a “season of answers,” we sure aren’t getting any. What was the point of bringing back not one, but two irrelevant characters? Sydney and Pastor Ted? Why not focus on the characters that we’ve actually followed for seasons that should be tying into the mystery, instead of making characters with two minutes of on-screen time the answers to the questions we’ve been asking since long before they were introduced?
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 14, “Power Play,” Aria is given an interesting offer by A.D. as she attempts to run from whatever Jessica’s file held about her (which, let’s point out, held information from before Jessica’s death in Season 4, so whatever Aria did was in the early days of the series). Elsewhere, we finally find out the identity of Charlotte’s father.
What ever happened to the “season of answers”? So far this season, we’ve just been left with more questions, and now time is winding down and the time to find out answers from seven seasons worth of mysteries is almost non-existent. All we’ve found out is Spencer (more than likely) wasn’t shot by Jenna, which isn’t an answer, and that Mary is missing. These are just more questions. We want answers.
On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 13, “Hold Your Piece,” it’s Hanna’s turn to play the game, and it doesn’t go quite how any of the girls would’ve wanted it to. Meanwhile, Aria and Emily hunted down another red herring in the quest to discover A.D.’s identity. Isn’t it time that we get some actual answers?
