I have decided to write a Fierce Fangirl Friday post about the recent Pretty Little Liars series finale. Fierce Fangirl Friday is hosted by Jackie @Too Much of a Book Nerd! I have seen Jackie and others do these posts on Fridays but could never really think of anything to fangirl to. I’ll probably only do this when I can actually think of something, but this time I am going to talk about Pretty Little Liars.
Whenever you have something, anything to fangirl about – whether it be a book, TV show, music, celebrities, your pet, the universe, finding your soulmate or just a recent meal that you’ve had – Fierce Fangirl Friday is your opportunity to do so! It doesn’t matter if it’s a recent obsession of yours or something you’ve been loving for a while!
Warning: I’m going to be talking spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the episode, you should.
The finale was on Wednesday (well Tuesday for most people) and it went for two whole hours! I couldn’t watch it exactly as it aired, as I live in Australia, so there were TONNES of spoilers just waiting for me on Twitter. Somehow I managed to ignore them and watched the episode knowing nothing about who A.D. was.
So… A.D. is Alex Drake, A.K.A Spencer’s evil twin!
I was not really expecting Spencer to have a twin! I thought it was pretty shocking and I’m glad out of all of the girls it was something to do with Spencer, because she is my favourite. Troian Bellisario’s acting was really good and pretty believable.
Although I liked it, I think this show has so many things that don’t add up. Like what were Alex’s motives and how did she afford everything? Also why did a whole year pass before she did anything?
It would have been amazing if A.D. was someone in the close group of characters, such as Spencer herself, Aria or Toby. I would have been ten times more shocked if this had happened. I don’t know why for both A and A.D. they chose people we have hardly even seen on the show. But I still think it is very creative and the place where Spencer was kept was very creepy.
It was interesting to see a year pass. Alison had her babies and they were of course TWINS! Ezra and Aria were getting married, Hanna and Caleb were trying for a baby, and Spencer and Toby had a thing going on. Or did they? Turns out crazy Alex was pretending to be Spencer and hooked up with Toby. When Spencer asked for a goodbye kiss quite a few episodes ago I thought it was very strange at the time, so now we know it was really Alex. It’s weird how all of them except for Spencer and Toby either are married or are engaged now when they are only in their mid-twenties.
I think the most shocking thing to happen on the show was when we found out Alison was pregnant with Emily’s baby. That was INSANE!
I was also really glad that Mona took off a Melissa mask after she creepily stared at the camera a few times because the actual outcome was much better. Also Wren being involved was interesting – I know a lot of people suspected him to be A – but he has been quite absent for most of the show so I barely remember how he was related to Spencer’s storyline. And what was Alex planning on doing with the Wren/Emily/Alison babies, steal them? If she plans on pretending to be Spencer, how would she convince Toby to take their babies and live happily ever after? Her plan has serious holes.
And what was with that ending? Mona had kidnapped Mary and Alex and was keeping them in her basement in France. That totally makes sense… It was funny that they created little liars based around Addison but they literally just copied the very first episode. But I would definitely watch a spinoff.
The episode was very entertaining and overall really enjoyable. I’ve been watching the show since about season 3 and it has kept me entertained for a pretty long time!
Bye Pretty Little Liars!
