Okay, so the Spring finale of Pretty Little Liars “Hush, Hush, Sweet Liars” aired last night, and I have to say I was far more impressed than expected, but still not as impressed as I hoped to have been. If that makes sense? So, for literal years (well, months for me as a binge watcher) loyal PLL viewers have been teased with the possibility of a character having a twin. In last night’s finale episode, we received this twin in the form of Mary Drake, the twin sister of the late Jessica DiLaurentis. And, bitch is cray.
Apparently, the imbalanced side of the DiLaurentis clan predominantly lies with Jessica’s (and Mary’s) side.
Before moving on, let’s dissect a bit further, shall we?
In the famous “Twin Story” Ali told at the beginning of episode 2×13, we saw two sisters playing with dolls and one stabbed the other. Do I guess these two might have been urban legendish versions of Jessica DiLaurentis and Mary Drake as young girls? Let’s just say that this is true — they are the girls in the story — I’m also guessing that the sister with the machete was Mary.
This theory could be the reason for the discovery of Mary’s patient file Spencer, Toby, and Mona discovered in the hotel’s basement. Inside of Mary’s Radley records showed that Charles (Charlotte?) DiLaurentis was the son she gave birth to while she was a patient there. The record showed Charles (Charlotte?) was the same age as Jason. The record also revealed that Jessica and Kenneth DiLaurentis adopted Charles (Charlotte?) when he was a baby.
So, now for some more questions. Obviously.
Are we still to believe that Charles and CeCe equal Charlotte?
Are we to believe that Mary killed Jessica?
Are we to believe that CeCe (Charlotte) knew Jessica wasn’t her biological mother? I mean, her fake name was CeCe Drake, after all.
Who the FUCK called Charlotte from Two Crows Diner the night she was murdered?
Why does Mary Drake have a vendetta against Jessica and Ali?
I’m probably going to blow people’s worlds away right now when I declare this, but, I don’t give a shit for the ‘ships.’ I mean, I love the relationships and all, but they are not why I watch (or even like) the show. I don’t care if any of them end up together one way or another. I would love all of the PLL characters to have happy endings and if it happens, great, but I don’t mind if it’s with one another or not.
INTUITIVE PESSIMIST here, sorry!
However, I will say that the Ezria sex scene was kind of hot, though. Also, watching Tyler Blackburn get dressed wasn’t too bad on the eyes either.
Okay, let’s talk FINAL twists.
We all called it (well, I know I did) Rollins is sketchy AF. I knew he was a creep, and I realize this, in no way, shape or form gives me any Nancy Drew street cred or anything, but yeah, homeboy is not only a trifling d-bag, but he’s also English! Many of us are now thinking (hoping, more like) that he possibly has a connection to Dr. Wren Kingston. I would say it’s just a coincidence that they are both English, but we all know there are only two types of occurrences that happen in Rosewood: Those that make sense deliberately (but not always obviously) and things that the writers have included that don’t pan out and never amount to anything.
Also, Alison checked her ass into the mental hospital rather quickly, didn’t she? I mean it’s been like two or three days since she “fell” down the stairs and she’s just committing herself. I know that TV has to move quickly, but just saying, I was in a relationship with a sociopath for nearly three years before I noticed I was convinced things were “all in my head.”
In Ali’s defense, though, this shit isn’t in her head it’s her crazy long-lost aunt and her new husband are trying to get rid of her and steal her money.
The middle class is disappearing, people. #FeelTheBern
And finally, WHO IS A.D. and where the hell did HE/SHE take Hanna?
Marlene King gave us four Season 7 clues last night and one of them was that “A.D. IS THE ‘BIG BAD'” — and I’m guessing, whoever this person is, it’s probably “A.” Drake. The MOTHER of all A’s.
I’ve made a pact with myself that I’m not going to try to figure this one out over the show’s hiatus because I should be doing other things with my life.
In fairness, I haven’t joined the PLL Reddit discussion, though, so I’m obviously not fully committed to this obsession just yet.
SPOILER: I may be soon.
Also, I’m going to watch Bates Motel.
What did you think of the 6×20 PLL Finale? Are you happy, mad, sad, or what? Personally, I believe that it will all tie together in the end, and we can all be proud of our perseverance and commitment to this show. Are you with me?
