Pretty Little Liars- The Mirror Has Three Faces (4×10)



“Which one are you? In Alison’s crew. CeCe always said there were four other she-devils.”

Things are happening in Rosewood. And it’s becoming easier to piece together certain clues to actually think of a logical explanation for what’s been happening. Let’s start decoding everything we learned in this week’s episode starting with Ali’s house.


Yeah, it’s pretty creepy that Emily is staying in Ali’s old room all by herself. Literally, Ali’s mom is so freaky sometimes, but than she pulls out the my husband just divorced me card and you can’t seem but feel bad. Is there an ulterior motive to her niceness or is she just lonely and missing her daughter? There was also an almost heartwarming encounter between Emily and Ms. DiLaurentis that revealed why she’s been keeping this museum dedicated to her past life. She admitted there have been times where she’s actually seen her daughter. Wait hold up? What did she just say? She’s seen her daughter!! Yeah, so have we. Maybe she isn’t crazy, maybe Ali really is alive. Or maybe she’s seeing the girl with the mask that we all have been seeing as well.

Emily is rooming the the enemy. When she and Ms. DiLaurentis went downstairs to find this mess of rags that formed a bed, indicating that someone had been sleeping under the house for quite some time, Ali’s mom didn’t really seem phased. I don’t know about you, but that would give me the creeps! Especially, if my daughter had been murder by an unknown killer and I was living by myself. Nope. That is not happening. She mentioned maybe someone slept there when Jason was in town. Well, um, where has Jason been anyways?? But while Mrs. DiLaurentis wasn’t phased, Emily saw the drilled  holes in the floor, which we actually saw A do a couple of episodes back.  Last week we saw red coat sneak through a window, so the answer is that red coat has been sleeping in Ali’s old house and spying on Ali’s mom. Why??? She’s (cause its def a she) has also been listening to all the conversations the girls have had in that house.


Leave it to Redcoat to provide us with the creepiest moment in PLL history. Obviously these girls need to way more aware of their surroundings, given the life they lead. While Hannah was in Ali’s room, which was weird because if I had gone into that house and called out Emily’s name numerous times only to hear creepy sounds, I probably wouldn’t go play with my dead friends jewelry box to begin with. But anyways. Redcoat clearly wears some ridiculously quiet shows and moves like a cat because when she snuck behind Hannah in Ali’s room, and looked in the mirror, while Hannah didn’t even notice. This is of course a nod to the episode title, The Mirror Has Three Faces, but why would Hannah’s face be deceiving? The first face is the one under the mask, the second is Ali’s face, but the third being Hannah? Whats the clue here?

Speaking of red coat, it seems like the identity of the woman that was in Radley has been identified. While Spencer and Toby visited the Doctor Palmer (because A hinted that focusing on the lion would bring him answers) it seemed like they were doomed because of his amnesia and schizo. But than, when Spencer got into character acting as Toby’s mother, Doctor Palmer was so caught up in that past moment, pretty much stuck in time, that he answered whatever “Toby’s mother” asked. When she mentioned the blonde girl she should steer clear of, he muttered get that DiLaurentis girl out of here. In a way, its very wrong to play with a man’s mind who has no idea what’s going on and manipulate it, but it worked right? Cha-Ching.


Spencer doesn’t waste her time. She confronted Ms. DiLaurentis about knowing the doctor from Radley and asking if he was her therapist. Turns out he was Ali’s. She referenced a memory where she had gotten a call about her daughter going crazy at Radley, only to arrive there and find out it was CeCe Drake playing an evil game. The girls loved to play these sick and twisted games together, and she despised their friendship. She also mentioned that they acted as if though they wore each others personalities, as if they wanted to be each other. The liars than of course connected the dots (thank god) to the man with the Ali masks, who said Ali came in asking him to make masks so her friends could look like her. Yep, creepy.

Theory: Could CeCe have been jealous of Ali and decided to kill her and take on her personality? Or are the girls still playing these games together? One girl is A, one girl is red coat?? Is Ali living in the basement of her home or is it CeCe? Additionally, could CeCe have been responsible for Toby’s moms accidental death? And why? Does she think this is all a sick prank.


And if it wasn’t proof enough that CeCe really is behind all of this (which means my Ali is alive theory can kind of go down the drain), Aria went to the address that Caleb tracked down from Nigel’s phone and encountered a pretty pist of girl, packing her things and also looking for CeCe. When Aria mentioned she knew Ali, the girl seemed to already know all about Ali’s little posse thanks to CeCe who apparently called them all she-devils. This is where we seem to get a bit of a motive for everything and anything to do with red coat. Ali got CeCe kicked out of school. Apparently the one party that all of the girls attended thinking it was just another night in Ali’s books, Ali had pushed a girl down the stairs getting CeCe kicked out and placed at fault. She was so furious because she believed all of the liars had something to do with it and clearly returned to Rosewood to seek revenge. Huh. So that’s what this is all about. Trying to ruin everyone’s life because of a speculation???


Wren is bad to the bone. We were all so sweetly fooled by that British accent. Melissa was fooled (or was she?). Spencer was fooled. Hannah was fooled. She is still fooled, calling Wren to get into Radley to see Mona and mentioning  that it was about CeCe.  Wren played off very concerned stating that a blonde, tried to see Mona last night. He mentioned that although she didn’t get in, since the hospital staff was cut, she could have easily sneaked in. Okay, still not sure what that’s leading up to, but Wren definitely wants people to believe he’s good and that he’s helping everyone out. He than proceeded to call someone, who I’m assuming is CeCe herself, and his whole demeanor changed, when he stated “We have a problem. I’ll take care of it on my end, you take care of yours.” What was he taking care of? Well, I’m assuming that had to do with his visit to Mrs. Hastings where he kindly informed her that Mona was doing this all to hurt her daughter and her friends. He hinted that she would switch the whole story up to get Ashely back into jail. Why he was helping out his ex-fiance’s mom? Well because they were almost family right? No, because he and whoever he is working with want Veronica off the case. Hmm.

This led Mrs. Hastings to go and confront Mona about how she would not let her daughter and her friends get hurt. She used a bunch of lawyer mambojumbo to scare Mona, whose not easily scared. But it was all a set up because than came an anonymous call (from Wren) that Mrs. Hasting’s  bullied Mona into giving her confession and she resigned from the case leaving Ashley without a lawyer. Of course, to Mrs. Hasting’s this now looks like the work of Mona, but it was really Wren who screwed with the plan.


He also didn’t look to happy when he was having a conversation or “diagnosis” with Mona and asking her to finally tell the truth about who killed Wilden. The conversation was more of a “we used to be on the same side, what the hell happened” type of convo, with Wren mentioning they would resume the convo when she would be honest with him and Mona made it clear that would never happen. She used to be honest with him, until she found out where his loyalties where. His loyalties? What does that mean? Is Wren more involved in the A-team than Mona ever was? Their both keeping secrets? And than finally, Mona mentions that Wren misspelled the word diagnosis, an indication that maybe Wren isn’t really a doctor and that’s his secret. Truthfully, when he went to talk to Mrs. Hastings and she said he could lose his medical licenses for telling her any of this, he didn’t seem to scared. Maybe he’s always been on the in because that’s how redcoat and A wanted it. Which opens up a whole new can of WTF?


Lastly, amidst all of the chaos, lets thrown in some relationship drama. Aria is confidently moving her relationship with Jake along, and she seems rather happy about it. That is until she gets a call from Ezra. Unfortunately, she ignores it thinking she’s better than that and she’s moving on! But big news!! Ezra actually is not the father of little Malcolm. Someone call Maury and please explain to me, how the hell did A not out this one? I feel really bad for Ezra, who has really grown to love that little boy as his own. Maggie on the other hand, wanted Ezra to be the father because she’s probably to ashamed that she has no idea who the dad really is. Sucks to suck. In reality, what she did was pretty shady. Not only did she mess with this poor guys mind, but she screwed up his whole relationship. Not that dating a student is ever the brightest idea, these two were really making it work until Maggie came into town, kind of replacing Aria making her feel second best and Ezra had to take a teaching job just to be able to support his new family. But lets keep our fingers crossed, now that Ezra knows the truth, he clearly wants Aria to know it as well. Could this be a reunion for Ezria!

Just one episode left until the huge season finale, #worldwarA, where we finally find out who redcoat is. With this getting this twisted and shocking, I can’t even begin to imagine what the biggest shocker to date could really be.

Pretty Little Liars – Farewell, My Lovely (7×19)



Pretty Little Liars Farewell, My Lovely

Have you heard the tale of the “twisted sister?”

Doesn’t ring a bell? Think hard…. it’s a story you’ve been hearing about for roughly 7 years, masked under the nickname A.D.

The final round of A.D’s game reached it’s end on Tuesday night, leaving even the strongest of fans a hot mess.

This was the last time that the liars would solve mysteries in Rosewood and you know that the writers and Marlene would “go big or go home.” How could you expect anything less? The pressure was really on for Pretty Little Liars to impress a fandom waited several year’s to find out the identity their tormentor.

After the reveal, negative comments began swarming in about how they were disappointed with the outcome but realistically, despite their best efforts, any “A” revelation was going to be a letdown simply because it was so hyped up…. we’ve imagined it in our minds on so many occasion. I’v heard complaints that it was far fetched but if you think that, you must not have been paying attention the past few years. This is the same show that blows up telephones, that had the liars trapped in a doll house with exact replicas of their bedrooms, that had a board game dictating their every move. When has anything ever been REALISTIC in Rosewood? Last time I checked, the definition of Rosewood was “batshit crazy” so really, when it came to the finale, it was best to leave expectations at the door and strap in for a wonderfully bonkers ride. No one comes to Rosewood for realism, we come for the crazy and the twisted and in that regard, the finale delivered.

Charlotte’s death marked the end of A and the beginning of A.D and while the tricks and torments may seem the same, they aren’t the same person, nor do they have quite the same motive. But they are connected by blood because as it turns out, every motive that A, Uber A or A.D ever had was motivated by a dysfunctional family.

Without further ado… A.D is….

Alex Drake.

Never heard of her? We don’t blame you. Up until a few hours ago, we hadn’t either. You might not recognize her name but you’ll definitely recognize her face because it’s Spencer Hastings. Well, her evil twin.

Let’s backtrack a bit though shall we?

Last weeks strange episode saw “A.D” driving off into the sunset as the liars figured they’d finally beaten Liars Lament when Mona confessed to killing Charlotte. Even though they didn’t really know who A.D was, they just assumed it was #endgame and that was the last they’d hear from him/her… but that was naive. A.D has a way of sneaking up on you and showing up at the most innoportune of times, in this case, a year later when everyone was happy and Aria and Ezra were about to exchange “I do’s.”

When we catch up with the liars, you realize what a difference a year can make. Emily and Alison became parents to beautiful TWIN girls (definitely foreshadowing here), Spencer’s working as a paralegal at her mother’s firm and finishing up law school, and Toby is returning from a soul-searching trip to Africa.

The couple you thought would continue to be the strongest, Caleb and Hannah, were having marital problems because of their struggle to have a baby. That and Mona was finally released from Welby and Hannah, who felt indebted to her former BFF, allowed her to stay at their loft. “She has no one else,” she kept telling her friends and family, but that wasn’t enough for Caleb. He’s always been the wisest of the group and knew that there was no way they could trust Mona after all that she’s put them through.

Seems like we should trust Caleb’s gut because the minute Mona got her freedom, she went right back to doing A.D’s bidding. She still didn’t know who was running the game but was eager to find out so she followed the instructions, wearing a Melissa mask to spy on the girls. Fans briefly thought that Spencer’s sister was the ringleader and well, they weren’t too far off – it wasn’t Melissa but it was Alex, who Spencer came face to face with after being knocked out by Mona and locked up in a cell. Yep, we were right on the money with that twin theory!

Seeing Spencer and Alex stare at each other was equally as eerie as it was insane. The British half of Spencer, who had a terrible English accent, was thrilled to meet her sister. She was also borderline insane but you probably could have guessed that considering her mother is Mary Drake and she was born in Radley. The phrase “all roads lead to Radley” has literally never been clearer.

It didn’t take long for Alex Drake to open up to Spencer and give her the backstory as to how she got there. She was given up for adoption when she was an infant but once she began showing troubling signs, the family gave her up to an orphanage. Wren discovered her in a bar at London and filled her in on this whole family that she literally never knew she had, including half-sister Charlotte, who became the only family she’d ever known. She loved Charlotte, she was loyal to her, she became her friend and then, when she was killed, she channeled that anger on the liars.

So yes, the game was started by Mona, stolen from her by Charlotte and when she died, taken by Alex, who wanted NOTHING more than to get revenge on her “dolls” for killing her sister. But despite being a villain, she also had a soul and she was jealous of Spencer and her friends for having everything she never did. She quickly realized that despite everything that A threw at them, they were always going to be friends, always going to stick up for each other, always going to be there for each other. And she wanted that, so she devised a plan to infiltrate the group by assuming Spencer’s identity. She wanted her life and she wanted Toby.

Literally, every scene where you thought “that’s unlike Spencer” was your gut telling you that it is in fact Alex. That hallucination Hannah had after being kidnapped and tortured – Alex. Kissing Toby before he left with Yvonne – Alex. Sleeping with Toby in the cabin – Alex. Running into Ezra at the airport – Alex. If you caught on, go tell your friends you told ’em so.

After clearing the air, Alex locked Spencer and Mary back up and left for Aria’s wedding, fully knowing it would never happen because she kidnapped Ezra who had figured it out. Sadly, Aria didn’t know any of that and thought that maybe the fight they had the night before about her infertility gave him cold feet.

If I was Spencer, I’d be pissed that none of my friends figured out that some imposter was pretending to be me. I mean, Alex was good at nailing Spencer’s talk, walk, and character to a tee but she wasn’t Spence. How did no one pick up on that? But crazy always starts showing and soon enough, Jenna, who knew all along that Charlotte had a sister, figured it out and informed Toby, who was also skeptical after seeing Spencer’s beloved horse get hostile around her.

After that, he pieced it together – the book she gave him before he drove off with Yvonne didn’t have any notes in it, which was unlike her. It was also unlike her to kiss him when he was engaged or to pounce him after his wife passed. “What if twins run in the family,” he told the liars. “That would give A.D motive,” Caleb retorted.

Before you know it, they had located Spencer’s phone and surprisingly, it was at Toby’s old house. This CRAZY person bought the house Toby built for Spencer, keeping her and Ezra prisoners smack dab in the middle of Rosewood. Spencer’s craftiness came in handy and she was able to break them both out using a bobby pin she pulled out of Mary Drake’s hair when they embraced.

If we learned anything from the dollhouse it’s that escaping a psycho with unlimited funds is virtually impossible. When they ran outdoors, they found themselves trapped inside a huge underground dome that was built to mimic Rosewood and an axe-wielding Alex right behind them. Literally, you could see the crazy in here eyes.

As a sister fight ensued, Ezra was knocked to the ground. Thankfully, the liars along with Caleb and Toby found them just in time and came face to face with a set of identical twins dressed exactly the same. Which Spencer was the real Spencer? Easy, Toby simply asked for Spencer’s favorite poem from the book, which the real Spence gladly recited.  Toby asked them both for real Spencer’s favorite poem and just like that, they figured it out.

Mona, who was accused of once again conspiring with A.D, revealed that she was always playing the game simply to help them this whole time. It’s definitely a redeeming moment for her and while it’s normal that the liars had their reservations, it speaks volumes to Hannah for always sticking by her friend and defending her, even though she tried to kill her multiple times.

With their tormentor finally gone for good, the girls were ready to start their next chapters. They took their final walk around Rosewood, a town that for once could enjoy some peace and quiet. Aria and Ezra were gearing up for their honeymoon in the South of France, Emily and Alison were just enjoying being parents to beautiful daughters Lily and Grace, whose biological father turned out to be Alex’s ex-Wren. She admitted to killing him when she decided to fully go through with her plan to assume Spencer’s identity and kept his ashes close to her in a diamond because “diamonds are forever.” (RIP Wren, you didn’t deserve this, although I was always convinced you did.) I don’t think Alison and Emily ever found out who the biological father was and I guess it’s for the better.

Spencer and Toby finally found their way back to each other after he stepped up to save her. Toby sat much of season 7 out and wasn’t really involved in the AD madness, at least not that he knew of. It was nice to see him brought back into the loop the way Caleb and Ezra have always been.

And thankfully, things for Hannah and Caleb worked out because she revealed that she was expecting a little baby Haleb. Not to jinx it but it seems like everyone got their happy ending.

“It feels like the end of something,” Alison admitted and I’d have to agree… it’s the end of A.D, of the games, of the threatening text messages and constantly living in fear. It’s the end of our relationship with the liars as we know it. But there’s beauty in the end because it also opens the door for a new beginning, which these girls needly BADLY. We can leave Rosewood knowing that their friendships will weather any storms… I mean, they all survived AD!

As for Mona, she got an ending that only she deserved. She moved to France, began dating some Robert Pattison lookalike cop who was completely unaware that she had split personalities and was holding both Mary Drake and Alex Drake hostage in the basement of her doll shop while forcing them to partake in “afternoon tea” parties. Literally, MONA TOOK THE GAME BACK! “She can’t keep us here forever,” Mary exclaimed. “Yes she can, she’s Mona,” Alex said while rolling her eyes. Game recognizes game. I could totally see a spinoff with Mona and Alex taking on the game together.

To me, that was a fitting ending but for some reason Marlene decided to assure us that even without AD and without the liars, the mythology of Rosewood continues. The mini-me liars aka Addison and her friends recreate the very first scene of the series when the girls woke up in the barn only to find Ali had disappeared. Throughout the season, they kept teasing that these girls would be the next liars, with Maya’s niece even finding a stabbed doll in her locker. While I get that it comes full circle, I don’t believe that history would repeat itself in this same way.  Let it go, Marlene, let it go. Rosewood has seen enough.

Other Thoughts

  • The moms are goals. I want to join their mom club and drink with them. Kudos to them for acknowledging that they too were too drunk to remember how they got out of the basement.
  • Alison’s proposal to Emily while wearing a pug hoodie was everything. I’m glad Emison got their happily ever after, even if it was forced by someone impregnating Ali against her will.
  • Turns out, Archer Dunhill was never actually involved with Alex’s plan. He loved Charlotte so much that after she was killed, decided to get his own revenge on Alison and her friends.  Turns out creepy is as creepy hangs out with.
  • I’m surprised that Alex, Charlotte, Wren and Archer “hung out” all the time in Rosewood yet no one ever saw anything. This town needs better law enforcement I swear.
  • I feel a bit jipped when it comes to seeing the liars’ stories play out, specifically Hannah telling Caleb that she was pregnant. I definitely wish we would have seen his reaction.
  • Maybe I missed this but was Spencer’s relationship with Caleb and Marco actually her or was that all Alex?

Saying goodbye to these girls was hard.  I watch a lot of shows and haven’t formed such a bond with other characters as I did with Aria, Spencer, Hannah, Emily and Alison. It felt like I was watching my friends grow up, start new lives and finally free themselves from a cyber bully that took it too far. It’s bittersweet but like they say, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

And to echo Spencer, how lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard?

What did you think of the finale? Was it everything you wanted it to be? Did you want more closure? Let me know what you’re thinking.

6 Burning “Pretty Little Liars” Questions We Need Answered During The Series Finale



We never thought we’d actually make it to this day but here we are, mere hours from finding out who A.D finally is and ending this game once and for all.

It’s been 7 long, long, LONG years and we’ve gone through so much with the Liars, some of which we don’t even remember because we got lost somewhere in the twists and turns of the Lost Woods.

After tonight’s 2-hour SERIES FINALE of Pretty Little Liars, we will finally have all the answers we’ve been so patiently waiting for.

Aria, Spencer, Hannah, Alison and Emily’s stories will come to an end but these friendships we’ve made, they’ll live on forever. (Hopefully until the movie comes out!)

While we still need to find out who A.D is, there are some other pressing questions still lingering and we need some closure.


1. Why Did A.D do all of this?

I think more fascinating than the ‘who’ is the ‘why’ here. Sure, we were shocked when it was revealed that Charlotte was Uber A but it was more twisted, more mind-blowing to find out why she did what she did. Up until this point, we’ve narrowed down a list of possible suspects, but the backstory, the reasoning behind all the torture is still something we’re having trouble piecing together. Why would someone go through all this trouble to torture 4 small town girls?


2. Who is the father of Emily and Alison’s baby?

Will this person be the same as A.D? We know A.D stole Emily’s eggs and inseminated Alison with them but we don’t exactly know who the other half is. Marlene says both the A.D reveal and the father reveal are “rewarding, satisfying and surprising.” Ah, the anticipation is killing me!


3. How did the mom’s get out of the basement?

No… I won’t let it go. Did they crawl out through a window? Did someone let them out? Do they really not suspect any foul play in Rosewood?


4. What’s The Deal with Bethany Young?

I have to consider that Bethany Young is somehow connected to this A.D madness. If you don’t remember, she’s the girl that’s allegedly in Ali’s grave, was Charlotte’s BFF in Radley and also allegedly killed Toby’s mom. We’ve mentioned her on so many occasions but never actually saw her in teen or adult form…. why?


5. Who Killed Sara Harvey?

We know Mona accidentally killed Charlotte but who killed Sara Harvey? Was it A.D because she was getting too close to the truth?


6. How Is Wren Involved?

Wren, who has been in and out of the show since season 1, has to be serving a bigger purpose here. Especially since he was just whispering about something with Spencer in an airport…. why is he back in town? Who is he shooting in the final promo? How has been involved this whole time?


We have a theory about A.D’s identity, which you can READ HERE.

See you tonight little liars!
