So recently, the mid-season finale of Pretty Little Liars has aired and there has been a lot of controversy as to the big reveal. If you have not seen the episode, STOP READING HERE AND WATCH IT BEFORE YOU CONTINUE.
Right, I think that was a decent enough spoiler warning. Anyway, I thought I would give my opinions on it.
So I had mixed feeling on the finale personally. I found that ‘A’ was very anti-climatic and almost a let down. I feel like there should’ve been a more interesting person than Cece as I feel that she didn’t really have enough of a motive to target the girls. I understand her story for hating her Dad but then why the girls or Ali?
Also, not a big fan of the fact that she dated Jason. Fair enough, Jason didn’t know they were related but I’m pretty sure Cece did and I think that’s a bit messed up. The transgender story line was very interesting however I think that it has been one of the topics causing controversy. Personally, I don’t feel like I can say an accurate statement about the accuracy or how it portrays transgender people but the general opinion that I got from fandom blogs and tumblr is that it was a very negative portrayal.
The final ending as well was very confusing as it’s set a couple of years into the future and the girls run into a classroom in a panic. I found this quite confusing as it seemed rather random…
Overall, I found this episode kind of anticlimactic as it was just watching Cece telling the story about why she was ‘A’ and there wasn’t very dramatic moments. There were also a lot of plot holes that I can only hope are filled in future episodes.
Thanks for reading and I’ll post again soon 🙂
