PRETTY LITTLE LIARS Season 7B Sneak Peek: The Girls Get an Unexpected Gift

pll

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS is coming to an end. The final batch of episodes of the long-running show will be airing this spring and now Freeform has released the first sneak peek for the April premiere.

The clip — which you can view below — shows the girls getting a belated Christmas present from their stalker, but it leads them to suspect that Noel and Jenna aren’t actually A.D. like they had suspected. During the TCA panel today for the show’s final season, the producers revealed that what’s inside the box is a deadly game — one that could shatter the girls’ bond forever.

The producers also teased that the final 10 episodes will reveal A.D.’s identity and will also include a musical number and another time jump — but this time it will be a one-year jump.

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS returns for its final 10 episodes on April 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS Season 7 Premiere Recap: Did Hanna Survive?

pretty little liars

What happened to Hanna? The season premiere of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS began four days after the events of the last season finale, with the girls burying a body. And then we flashed back to four days earlier to the night that Hanna disappeared. The girls noticed Mary Drake walking into the police station to report a break-in at the Lost Woods Resort (which she now owns) and Toby learned who she was before reporting back to the others.

Thanks to a message from A.D., the group figured out that Hanna was in the church bell tower and rushed to save her. But it turned out the body they found was wearing a Hanna mask and wasn’t really a body at all. Instead, A.D. told the girls that they had 24 hours to find Charlotte’s real killer or Hanna would die.

The next morning, the group assembled at the Hastings house to figure out Charlotte’s murder. They believed that Mary Drake was A.D. and were determined to solve this mystery. It soon became obvious that Alison seemed like the #1 suspect in Charlotte’s death. Aria thought back to the night Charlotte died and hypothesized that she and Ezra had actually seen Ali that night. Mona suggested that Alison snapped, while Spencer put forward the theory that Alison killed Charlotte in self-defence. With the clock still ticket, the group split up: Mona, Caleb, Spencer and Toby headed to spy on Mary Drake, Emily went to visit Alison, and Ezra and Aria went to the DiLaurentis house.

Hanna, meanwhile, was stuck in a wooden shack, begging to be let out….a fact that her friends were soon aware of when her photo was texted to them.

At the hospital, Emily told Ali’s husband about Mary Drake (someone the fans know is actually his partner, as we learned in the season 6 finale). He, in turn, told her that Alison was suffering from tremendous guilt, which made Emily suspicious that Ali was Charlotte’s killer.

Back at the Lost Woods Resort, Spencer and Toby searched Mary’s room and found her very full passport. At the DiLaurentis house, Ezra and Aria were forced to hide in the closet when Elliot came home and they spotted him taking something out of a locked chest. Later that night, Mona and Toby followed Mary to Spencer’s house. As they waited outside, Spencer invited Mary in for tea. Mary told Spencer that she and Jessica didn’t get along and that Jessica had poisoned everyone against her. “I was born first and she was born jealous,” Mary said of her sister.

At the hospital, Emily went in to confront Alison. She told her sleeping friend that she needed to know the truth about Charlotte and was shocked when Ali suddenly woke up, asking God to forgive her.

In the midst of all this murder talk, Aria told Ezra that she needed time to think about their possible renewed relationship. And when Aria met up with Emily again, Emily lied and said she hadn’t been able to talk to Ali after all. It soon became obvious that Emily believed Ali was guilty and was torn about what to do.

Meanwhile, Aria headed to a bar near Hollis to track down an associate of Mary’s who was chatting with her on the phone. She came up with nothing, but when she heard a familiar song she went to Ezra’s house to be with him.

Soon after, Emily snuck into the DiLaurentis house and visited Ali’s room. She was conflicted about what Alison may have done, remembering the good times they had. She also noticed a box that Alison had set aside for Goodwill and found the red jacket that Ali may have worn the night Charlotte died. “Oh, Ali, what did you do?” Emily asked.

Back in the shack, Hanna dreamt of Spencer, who was really her subconscious prodding her to find a way out. Hanna remembered this when she awoke and started looking for the exit. “If there’s a way in, there’s a way out,” she said.

Spencer updated the others about Mary’s history just before Emily arrived to tell them that she suspected Alison had killed Charlotte. She also whipped out the red coat.

With 36 minutes left, the group discussed whether they should hand over Ali to save Hanna. Caleb stole the jacket and dropped it off at the Lost Woods Resort in order to save Hanna. Exactly 24 hours after issuing his/her ultimatum, Uber A arrived back at the shack to find Hanna gone. It turned out that she had escaped and was currently running through the woods. She spotted a car, but it just kept driving…at least until it turned around and Hanna spotted Mary Drake behind the wheel. Of course, she didn’t know who she was.

Meanwhile, someone grabbed and bagged the red jacket, while Elliott visited Alison to drug her again. “I know you killed Charlotte,” he whispered to her. “Just like you, Alison, karma can be such a bitch”.

In conclusion, Hanna is alive, but she’s not yet reunited with her friends. To find out what happens next, tune in to an all new episode of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS on June 28 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.

 

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS Sneak Peek: Coming Face-to-Face with Mary Drake

pretty little liars

Photos from the season 7 premiere of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS showed fans that Mary Drake would reveal herself to Spencer. And now, thanks to Freeform, we have a video sneak peek of that meeting.

It’s immediately apparent that Mary is playing dumb when it’s coming to Spencer and pretending that she doesn’t really know her. Of course, we know that’s a giant lie because Mary has been manipulating Spencer and her friends for a while now. But Spencer is friendly and invites her inside for tea. The question is: is Spencer playing Mary so she can get more information or is she genuinely unaware of Mary’s dark motives?

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS returns for its seventh season on June 21 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS Season 7 Premiere Photos: Mary Drake Comes Out of the Shadows

Hanna has been abducted by Uber A. That was just one of the big cliffhangers in the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS winter finale (the other, of course, was the reveal that Jessica DiLaurentis has a twin sister — Mary Drake — who is Charlotte’s birth mother and is now tormenting the girls).

The girls (and guys) know that someone looking like Jessica is alive, but they don’t know she’s Mary. They may come to realize that soon enough, however, because it appears that Mary Drake reveals herself to Spencer by visiting her house in the season 7 premiere, according to photos released by Freeform. The photos also reveal that Emily will visit Alison in the psychiatric hospital, but will she realize Ali has been set up? And can she break her friend out?

The girls are on a race against time to save Hanna from Uber A in the season 7 premiere. To do that, they are being forced to hand over evidence of Charlotte’s real murderer. But to hand over the information, the “girls must decide what blatant lines they are willing to cross that they have never breached before; and once they cross that line, there is no turning back.”. A preview for the show’s return gives a glimpse at the terrible lines they’ll have to cross.

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS Season 7 Preview: Is This the End?

PRETTYLITTLELIARS_Y6B_FEATUREDIMAGE_141825_KATT-936x482

We might be coming up on the end, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS fans. The show will soon return for its seventh and possibly final season, but whether it ends with season 7 or not, it will be the end of the show as we know it.

At the end of the sixth season, fans learned that Mrs. DiLaurentis had an identical twin named Mary Drake who was actually Charlotte’s birth mother. Mary was working with Elliot (Alison’s current husband, but apparently an old flame of Charlotte’s) and trying to take the girls down. The girls themselves don’t know all of this, but they did see a woman who looked just like Mrs. D on some security footage, so you can imagine that they’re a bit surprised.

Oh yeah, and Hanna was kidnapped.

Producer I. Marlene King promised that this upcoming season will have reveals “almost every week”, so be prepared for a summer full of answers! But will the girls save Hanna?

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: Andrea Parker Returns to Season 7 as a Series Regular

pretty little liars

The season 6 finale of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS delivered up quite the twist: Andrea Parker (Jessica DiLaurentis) had returned….only she wasn’t Jessica anymore, she was actually Jessica’s previously unknown twin, Mark Drake. And Mark was also the biological mother of Charles/CeCe/Charlotte, who had given her then-son up for adoption to her sister and Jessica’s husband while she was in Radley. Not only that, but it was revealed that Mark was working with Dr. Elliott Rollins to drive Alison crazy and have her commit herself to a mental institution so that the pair could get revenge for Charlotte and take over control of the Carissimi Group.

Whew. It was a pretty big finale. Given what happened, it should come as no surprise that Freeform has confirmed that actress Andrea Parker will be returning to season 7 as a series regular and will be playing Mary Drake for the foreseeable future. Executive Producer Marlene King appeared with Parker in a post-finale Facebook video and shared a few teasers for the upcoming season.

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS will return this summer on Freeform.

(Warning: spoilers are coming…)

Following the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS season 6 finale (read the recap), creator I. Marlene King took to Facebook to confirm that Mary Drake is Charlotte’s biological mother and is Jessica DiLaurentis’ twin (although that was pretty obvious to everyone since Andrea Parker played both roles).

(1) This it the beginning of the end of PLL “as you know it”. Marlene King has promised that next season will have a reveal “almost every week/episode”.

(2) “A. D. is Uber A”, Marlene confirmed.

(3) Season 7 will be “the most romantic season ever of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS”.

(4) The PLLs will “make their biggest mistake of their lives and Uber A is going to use it to fuel A’s final, final game”. Yikes!
