- Title: Pretty Little Liars – Season Six
- wiki: link
Much like the Sixth Season of The Mentalist, Pretty Little Liars makes the unusual choice to break-up a single season into two separate parts with the first wrapping up the long-running mystery of the series and the second setting up the final season-and-a-half of new situations and newtrouble for our characters. The mid-season mark culminates in the (somewhat disappointing) reveal and capture of CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray) as A. It’s obvious that the show’s writers had chosen the character to be their villain early in the show’s run and chose to stick to their guns, but the lack of Cece’s impact in recent years made her choice an odd one six seasons into the series.
Highlights of the first-half of the season include each of the Liars struggling to deal with their captivity after being captured by A at the end of the previous season, the Liars going to prom, A turning Aria‘s (Lucy Hale) photography exhibit into another attack at the girls, and the Liars‘ search for evidence that Charles DiLaurentis is still alive (which leads to the revelation that Charles and CeCe are the same person).
Taking place five years after the capture of A, the second-half of the season returns each of the Liars to Rosewood to get involved in a new murder mystery and targeting by a new A. Highlights here include the shock of CeCe’s murder, Hanna‘s (Ashley Benson) latest recklessness, Emily‘s (Shay Mitchell) growing paranoia and the obvious chemistry between Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Caleb (Tyler Blackburn).
The Complete Sixth Season collects all 21 episodes on 5 DVDs along with deleted scenes and featurettes on prom, relationships in the series, the missing five years between the first and second halves of the season, and the Liars return to Rosewood after 5 years.
