Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, #1) by Sara ShepardThree years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back? A strong launch for a suspenseful series.
The bond beween the four leads and their many romances also kept fans riveted for years. With that in mind, it is time to look at which storylines worked, and which did not. From there, it either needs to have made the show significantly better or taken away from what viewers loved so much about the series. Introduced to the world of Pretty Little Liars as a backdoor pilot for the spin-off series with the same name, the Ravenswood storyline added nothing to the series that spawned it. Instead, when the Liars made their way to the town of Ravenswood, the episode largely focused on starting storylines and introducing characters for the spin-off. On top of that, Mrs. Grunwald was a wacky character who ,could have been an interesting addition to the PLL supporting cast but instead, she only appeared in a handful of episodes.
Sign in. Four friends band together against an anonymous foe who threatens to reveal their darkest secrets, while also investigating the disappearance of their best friend. Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Emily Fields, and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A", who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else is planning on ruining their not so perfect lives.
Pretty Little Liars is an American teen drama mystery thriller television series developed by I. Marlene King and is loosely based on the novel series of the same name written by Sara Shepard. The series follows the lives of four high school girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A" who threatens to expose their deepest secrets. After an initial order of 10 episodes, ABC Family ordered an additional 12 episodes on June 28, The ratings success of the first 10 episodes prompted the book series to be extended beyond the initial eight novels.
Since Pretty Little Liars premiered in , the girls have been terrorized by a series of shadowy figures going only by the letter A. For example, in one episode, A tells Hanna to order a box of cupcakes, eat them in public, and then implies that she should throw them up afterward. A also manipulates events involving people the Liars are close to and tries to get them to tell on each other in exchange for making sure their own secrets stay hidden. When the season ends, Ian gets pushed off a bell tower by a hooded figure who later turns out to be Ali , but it does not kill him and he walks away. The girls, meanwhile, continue to receive texts from A. They later learn that he did kill himself but the note was forged by A.
Of course Spencer had an evil twin. And of course that twin was English. And, yes, of course that evil twin turned out to be the seemingly omniscient A. In the world of Rosewood, fans have come to expect the insane and revel in the absurd. And apparently, Pretty Little Liars creator I. Marlene King and actress Troian Bellisario —who plays both Spencer and her mirror image, Alex Drake—have been planning the shocker that concluded the soapy drama on Tuesday night for years.
