Here’s What The PLL Finale Left Unanswered!

2 years ago written by

If you’ve stuck with Pretty Little Liars right from the very beginning, you surely must be as hugely disappointed by the mid season finale of Season 6 as we are!

On the Aug. 11 mid-season finale of Pretty Little Liars, Alison (Sasha Pieterse) finally comes face-to-face with A, someone who has tortured her and her friends for years. Although the unveiling was a relief all around, and it came with an unexpected and clever twist, we find it very disturbing that we were supposed to feel bad for the person who wreaked absolute havoc on these teenagers for so long.

WARNING: Spoilers ahead! Seriously, if you have not watched the PLL mid-season finale and have somehow evaded spoilers on social media, please stop reading now. You’ve been warned!


Alright, so here it is: A turned out to be CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray). You have to admit, she had always been suspicious, even when she was “helping” Alison and her friends, so in some ways, it made sense. The plot twist that she is transgender and was born a boy named Charles DiLaurentis, aka Alison’s brother, was a definite surprise. It was nice to finally have an answer, a face to blame for all of the madness we’ve seen Ali, Hanna, Emily, Spencer, and Aria go through, but were we really supposed to feel bad for her/him?


Here are a few of the many many Qs that I Marlene King left unanswered in the “Summer of Answers”.
