If you’re a Pretty Little Liars fan — particularly one who specializes in theorizing — now would be a good time to sit down. You’re about to have a lot of information to process.
Freeform on Monday released the official synopsis for the show’s Aug. 30 summer finale (8/7c), and it’s full of ominous teases that we’re already struggling to wrap our collective brain around:
The Liars face off with their enemies in a chaotic fight that ends fatally. One of the PLLs learns a secret about her past that changes everything while another Liar discovers something about her future that could alter her course forever.
First thing’s first: Assuming my definition of “fatally” differs from Freeform’s, someone is going to die in the finale. My money’s on someone important — Noel, Jenna and even Yvonne are all fair game.
Twist No. 2: The unnamed liar’s “secret about her past” has to be that she’s Mary Drake’s other child, yes? (The Aria Drake theory is heating up, but to be honest, I’m not ready to dismiss any of the Liars at this point.)
And the biggie: Is one of the Liars pregnant? Unless it’s a cancer scare, which I really hope it’s not, the idea of one of the girls discovering “something about her future that could alter her course forever” has me thinking babies. And given everything I know about biology — which is admittedly limited — I think it’s safe to rule out Emily as the Liar who discovers that she’s pregnant. (Crazy theory of the day: Can you imagine if A.D. took Emily’s stolen eggs, fertilized them, then planted them in one of the other Liars? Hey, it happened to Jane the Virgin!)
Time to theorize: Who’s dying? Who’s Mary Drake’s other child? And which Liar might be pregnant? Drop a comment with your wildest guesses below.
