Let’s begin with Aria and Ezra: There’s nothing wrong with rooting for their epic romance, but let’s not ever forget that their first hookup went down in a public bathroom…
…and that their second hookup happened at her best friend’s funeral. (Yikes!)
“I tried writing, but I didn’t get very far.” (Yes, Ezra, we all know about your creepy little manuscript. Well, we do now.)
“Tweet, tweet!” (When PLL eventually became the most popular show on Twitter, one person was not surprised: Hanna Marin.)
“My boyfriend’s name is Ben.” (Oh, Emily, this quote is now hysterical for an incomprehensible number of reasons.)
Long before Mike disappeared into the basement for half a season and emerged a full-grown man, he was merely a boy — a boy who just needed a ride to lacrosse tryouts.
Drink this sight in, kids. You’ll never see Ella and Byron this happy together ever again… or in the same room, for that matter. (Seriously, those two are harder to keep track of than Alison!)
“When your parents want you to be yourself, and you don’t know who you are…” (Aria’s explanation for her pink hair is perfect.)
Speaking of hair, can we talk about Ezra’s pilot mop? #DemCurls
And let’s not forget Maya’s hair! #Body #Volume #Bounce
Here’s proof that Melissa Hastings has been single white female-ing Jackie O. since day one.
“We all know she’s dead, right?” (Aria’s face pretty much sums up the fandom’s collective response to Emily’s now-ridiculous question.)
“You’re not like Melissa’s boyfriends. … I actually like you.” (Oh, Spencer, just you wait for your trip to Wren’s apartment.)
I don’t mean to tell the police how to do their jobs, but a simple double-check would have revealed that this was not Alison’s body. Could’ve saved a lot of people a lot of time.
“…the sad ending to a year-long mystery.” (Yes, news lady. Thank God the big mystery is finally over!)
Now, for some fun re-castings: Remember original Ian? (Carlo Marks literally dodged a bullet.)
And what about original Toby? No one saw that re-casting coming — least of all Jenna.
And this definitely isn’t the same Mrs. DiLaurentis that [Spoiler] killed at the end of Season 4. (Not that I know who [Spoiler] even is.)
“Should we tell someone?” (Just think, had Emily and Aria shown their “A” threats to someone — anyone — their problems could have been over much quicker.)
Now, let’s end with a personal favorite: The irony of Rosewood’s local paper, the Observer, touting a typo on its front page. (“Loosing streak?” Not so observant now, are we?) ETA: While we’re at it, “makeover” is one word.
