'A' Revealed + ABC Family announces 'Pretty Little Liars' return date! (Discussion Post!!)

The premiere date for Pretty Little Liars season three has been reveAled.

ABC Family announced yesterday (March 19) that the teen drama series will return to screens on June 5.

Pretty Little Liars is reportedly scheduled to begin filming 24 new episodes in April.

Its second season finale aired in the US last night and revealed the identity of 'A', the mysterious figure threatening to expose the secrets of lead characters Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario).

Pretty Little Liars executive Oliver Goldstick said last year that he believes the show will end after four seasons.

A's unmasked in anti-climactic finale (CNN's review)

After assuring fans that the show wouldn’t follow the book series, we can safely say the writers are a bunch of pretty little liars.

Just like in Sara Shepard's novels, Hanna’s friend Mona turns out to be A. The former smart girl with no friends wanted revenge on the PLLs for stealing her friend Hanna.

All along, Mona seemed like the obvious choice - with her extra cell phones and jittery demeanor.

And if that’s not enough of a cop out, now there’s an "A team," which basically means everyone could also be A: Jenna, Garrett, Melissa, Lucas, Ezra and Caleb. Maybe even Paige, who distracted Emily at the masquerade party. We might as well throw Toby in there too, just for good measure.

So what did you think of the season 2 finale AD? Were you pleased with the outcome? And more importantly, will you tune in for season 3 when it airs in June?

To ponder:

  • Is the mysterious woman in red actually Alison?
  • Was Alison’s twin sister Courtney pretending to be Ali all along?
  • Is Maya really dead?
  • Is Melissa really pregnant?
  • Was she the black swan at the masquerade ball?
  • Where has Jason been?

my reaction to this team A nonsense

alison's twin sister courtney? what. i've always believed in the twin thing, but i didn't know it was legit. is it in the books?

yeah it is in the books, but i don't know if the writers are going w/that in the series but who knows!! oh and i think courtney was the black swan tbh!!

coutney was the one that girls knew as "allison" so the black swan would be the real ali

lol right? this series is soo twisted lmao

[book spoilers]
[Spoiler (click to open)]the whole reason the ~real~ allison becomes A is b/c.. well kourtney is like insane or something, and is normally kept at some facility. she was home for the weekend and somehow managed to switch places and allison got sent to the facility--- no one would believe her though, because kourtney used to always pretend to be ali, so they thought it was kourtney just bein kourtney~~. well kourtney, since she was always away at the facility, didn't know that much of ali's life etc and she obviously couldn't be friends with ali's friends because they'd be able to tell what's up. and that's what kourtney befriended the girls-- they were unpopular and jumped at the chance to be her friend bc they thought it was ali. and kourtney had ali's popularity obv bc most people were fooled, and she turned the girls popular too, had them tell them all theri secrets blahblah blah

and iirc the REAL ali, when she comes home on a weekend visit or sth from treatment, is the one who killed kourtney (who the girls & everyone thought was ali). and real!ali had kind of snapped a little bit herself in the treatment center, and was soooo pissed off and hated the loser girls that her sister decided to be friends with, and that's why she was fucking with them.

loooll so many teen young adult books are so fucking dramatic and ridiculous

Good god I need to read those books

So the girl that Spencer saw in her House the Episode before and the girl that Hanna saw after she was hit by A's Car was really Courtney and not Allison? I'm confused. When people start comparing the show to the books, it's really confusing to me because I have not read them
neverlethisgo 20th-Mar-2012 03:48 pm (UTC)
I'm furious about the entire episode. Let's just use the plot from the books (where everyone knew the outcome) and Psycho and call it a finale. Cool.

This episode was everything. i was expecting Alison to come and say she's alive but i guess that can wait til next season. I don't get why people were mad? it's A team of people and isn't that what everyone wanted anyways? bitches still gon watch next season so whatevs. i'm happy with it :)
ohsoglamours 20th-Mar-2012 04:35 pm (UTC)
ia tbh. it was sort of underwhelming because of all the hype/false advertisement, but i really liked it. i'm glad A wasn't ~completely revealed. the mystery is the best part of the show!

"my reaction to this team A nonsense" MTE
karajonas3 20th-Mar-2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
still mad at how it ended tbh
electricblues 20th-Mar-2012 04:53 pm (UTC)
such a letdown tbh, i was expecting some kind of crazy twist that was going to blow my mind but NOPE
kknee13 20th-Mar-2012 05:54 pm (UTC)
kinda glad they went for the smaller reveal first and not just the courtney thing right away because it would have been a let down to go from this big huge omg wtf moment to a smaller eh.. moment when the series is almost over
swifterland 20th-Mar-2012 08:14 pm (UTC)
yeah it was kinda a letdown that they went for the obvious choice. and mona'a reason for being A and getting revenge made no sense to me, considering they didn't "steal" hanna away from her until A started texting them.

i still can't even talk about it or be excited for the return after that letdown
