Thoughts on the finale
I was shocked, but at the same time, it was a disappointment because I feel like there was a lot of wasted potential.
What was the whole point of the board game? I mean, the writers made it seem like AD was only torturing the girls because of Charlotte… and yet when she finds out it’s Mona, she does absolutely nothing to Mona.
I like that Jenna actually turned out to be a good person. I wonder if she actually could see but didn’t let anyone know. How else would she have known that Spencer wasn’t Spencer?
I so called it that Mona was bad, even though she did somewhat help the liars. She never truly recovered.
So Mary wasn’t really bad? Why didn’t Spencer check up on her and try to look for her. I do kind of feel bad that she’s trapped with Alex.
I so knew there was going to be something shady about a cop based on his imdb page, being listed as “Cop / FH.” I wish I had theorized about that, but at the same time, I never would have guessed.
Also, the writers dropped so many useless clues. Like, why was Rollins listed as Mona’s psychiatrist if at the end of the day his character was completely useless?
And to have the final A, Uber A, to be a completely random character the girls didn’t knew is just a huge disservice.
Plus, it’s really bad writing. I mean, Alex wanted to kill Spencer and replace her just to have friends and get Toby. Umm… the UK is full of people. I’m sure she could have just as easily had friends there. And she even had a “Toby”, but she killed Wren just because he kept calling her Alex? Could you get worse writing than that?
Also, they wrote Alex as if she was a sociopath, but I don’t think sociopaths want friends. They want to control people, but not necessarily want friends. So that’s even more bad writing.
I feel like this was just the writers grasping at straws because they found out the show was renewed, yet they gave us the somewhat big reveal with Charlotte.
But that’s another thing, they never explained all the lies Charlotte told in the 6a finale. It would have been better if Charlotte was alive, working with Archer. Would have made more sense.
Meh, disappointed with the reveal and how many lies the writers told (will never trust Marlene King to actually tie up plot holes again), but I do like that the characters all got happy endings and no one died. I may be the only person, but so glad Ezria got their happily ever after.
