5 years. Yep, we’ve spent half a decade with Aria, Hannah, Emily, Spencer, Alison and a myriad of wayward teens, sexed up parents and shirtless hotties trying to decipher clues as to the identity of Rosewoods main antagonist and finally, this Friday night (March 27th) on FOX8, we’ll be given the biggest clue – the identity of A.
Well sort of.
Without offering spoilers, we’re not given a definitive answer as to who is Big A, but you’ll leave this episode with not one, but two massive revelations and a possibly the answer to the question…”Is ‘blank’ actually Big A?”
When you see the episode, you’ll see where i’m going with this!
The episode which aired Tuesday night in America was one of the most watched episodes of the show this season with PLL’s creator Marlene King saying “This is an episode that’s not just shocking and action-packed and scary as hell — it’s demented and emotional. I just think there are many, many things that are going to feel new to our fans, and that’s what’s so exciting about it. It’s the most important episode we’ve done so far so. It’s just balls out, and a really fun, new, and interesting direction for the show.”
The Pretty Little Liars Season 5 finale airs Friday night, March 27th, 7:30pm on Fox8
Could it be true? After 5 seasons, over 100 episodes, assorted deaths, mysterious text messages and many a red coat, it seems we are finally edging closer to discovering the real identity of Pretty Little Liars’ ‘Big A’.
We’ve been led down many a winding road with our liars only to be let down with mini A’s (Mona) and fake members of the A Team (Toby and Ezra) but now, it seems, we are heading towards the light.
PLL’s Keegan Allen (Toby Cavanaugh) has let it be known that when it comes to the identity of Big A….we’ve already seen them. It won’t be some random character that pops out of nowhere saying ‘surprise bitches’.
So who is Big A? Or who could be Big A?
Everyone from lead characters Aria (Lucy Hale) and Hannah (Ashley Benson) to Ashley (Laura Leighton) and even the deceased Maya (Bianca Lawson) have all been tossed around the theory bin but it looks like we’re going to have to wait until the season 5 finale on March 24th for a very long awaited answer.
Who do you think is Big A? Sound off in the comments below!
Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesday nights on ABC Family (USA) and on Fox8 on Fridays (Australia)
It was supposed to be the next big show for ABC Family. On paper, it should have been. A spin-off from the networks biggest show Pretty Little Liars with the added bonus of lead Caleb Rivers (Tyler Blackburn – a PLL favourite) moving from Rosewood to Ravenswood to investigate a mysterious curse that prey’s on the towns teenagers and created by Marlene King…it should have worked but ABC Family announced that after just one season, Ravenswood will not return.
Launched in October last year following the annual PLL Halloween episode, Ravenswood failed to capitalize on the dedicated fanbase and online social presence PLL has a stronghold on. Most fans seem unable to connect with the show and felt the spin-off had nothing to do with PLL and was in a completely different genre.
The fictional town of Ravenswood featured in the first half of season four of Pretty Little Liars and saw a regular cross-over of main and supporting characters making appearances in the town, but the addition of supernatural elements in the show [Ravenswood] made Ravenswood seem like a complete 360 on what many were expecting the spin-off to be.
No word on what this means for Tyler Blackburn and a return to the hit teen drama, though I’m assuming fans will be begging PLL creator Marlene King to bring him back to Rosewood and reunite him with his on screen girlfriend Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson)
Ravenswood’s Feb 4th episode also acted as the season closer and series finale.
Well it’s no secret that Pretty Little Liars creator Marlene King loves to keep fans both wanting answers and enthralled with extended story lines. For starters, four seasons in and we still don’t know if Alison is even alive!!! – But that’s all set to change with fans getting some answers to some long drawn out questions and I for one can’t wait!
The four main cast members – Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell and Ashley Benson sat down with Good Morning America to chat about the annual costume themed Halloween episode and happily let on that we will finally be getting answers including one to the biggest question on everyone’s’ lips – by the end of the Halloween episode, we will finally find out if Alison is alive or dead! There’s been leads to both possible answers, especially with the season 4B finale in which we learnt that Cecee was a red coat and that Mrs. Grunwald had seen Alison the night of her disappearance.
If Ali is actually alive and well, the remainder of Season 4 becomes the search for Ali and answers — mainly, where has she been hiding, and more importantly, who has she been hiding from?
We can also expect some tears in this episode thanks to a mutual breakup between Hannah and Caleb. We already know that Caleb will be leaving for Ravenswood (the new spin-off show) during this episode, but the circumstances surrounding this is still not known and while there is a break between the two, Ashley Benson confirmed we can expect Hannah to pop up in Ravenswood to see Caleb.
I wonder if the big ‘A’ reveal from the 4B finale (Ezra in A’s lair) will have anymore revealed about it! We’ll only find out when Pretty Little Liars’ Halloween episode airs this Friday, October 25th at 7:30pm on Fox8 via Foxtel.
P.S – As of Sept 17th, Fox8 noted on their Facebook page, that The Pretty Little Liars spin-off Ravenswood would not be added to their line-up due to restrictions in their schedule.
