‘Pretty Little Liars’ Review: One Last Dance

They made it to their prom, but for all the wrong reasons.

They made it to their prom, but for all the wrong reasons.

Only one week till we really know who A is! But Ali knows already. It’s going to be a very long week.

I was so mad that the liars weren’t allowed to go to their own prom. After all they’ve been through they deserve that normal high school experience. They managed to get to their own prom, but they were keeping an eye on Ali, so it wasn’t the magical night they hoped for.

There was some magic though. It was so moving hearing Spence talk about her speech and realizing it was all about Toby. If they weren’t only in high school, I’d say it was a proposal.

Caleb and Hanna had their own fairy tale moment. Caleb was hiding something, but not what Hanna thought. He’s finally using his skills for good and he can pay for a life in New York for them and Hanna’s tuition.

Aria and Ezra’s moment wasn’t so magical though. Aria told Ezra not to follow her and Ezra wasn’t, he’s going to Thailand for the summer. Is this really the end for them? I’m so happy that Aria has something after all of this is done. I’m so proud of her for winning that contest and getting the amazing internship, but there may be no happy ending for this couple.

I’m still weary about Sara. It’s sweet that she came to see Emily at her prom, but I still don’t trust her. I didn’t trust Clarke, he was hiding something, but he was one of the good guys. Could Sara be good too?

Ali even has potential for a happy ending. Lorenzo came to see her after all. I guess Spencer’s words got through to him. If it was your long lost brother, wouldn’t you do the same?

Some of my favorite scenes this week were of the mothers. We don’t get to see them too often and rarely all together. I love Ella and Ashley. Pam and Veronica also have had their moments.

Secrets were coming out as the ladies drank their wine and kept an eyes on their girls. But too many glasses of wine led to them wanting answers. I now see where the liars get it from.

Ella is convinced they just met Charles, but is Rhys, Charles? All clues point to him, but if the big reveal isn’t until next week, A maybe someone else.

Now the liars’ mothers are all locked away in Mr. D’s basement and where is he? Why was his door open? Did Charles come and take him away too?

Ashely ponders how their girls survived much worse than their situation. They stand their worrying about their girls in the barn. They have no idea that the four girls went to prom to follow Ali.

I think the moms will be fine. Charles just wants them out of the way for whatever is coming.

Next week all will be revealed. I guess it’s time to write down every question we ever had and see if the writers answer all of them. Last year’s season finale was epic. And I thought, how could they ever top this? This is only a summer finale, but with everything going to be revealed, it needs to be the best episode ever.

It’s so hard to give fans what they want and stay true to the story. Sometimes you have to sacrifice one for the other. This isn’t a series finale though, even if it does feel like one. It is ending the big mystery and this story needs have a great finish.

Pretty Little Liars has yet to disappoint me. It sucked me in and hasn’t let go. For me I’ve only been watching for a couple of months, but I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for A, Red Coat and everything else to be out in the open. For those people who have watched for six long years, I’m sure you are more than ready to have this mystery be solved.

The count down begins to the reveal of A. Can you handle the anticipation?
