Pretty Little Liars celebrates its 100th episode. As we prepare for the wave of emotions we’ll feel during Season 5, Episode 5 (“Miss Me x 100”), Wetpaint Entertainment is taking a look back at all the reasons we’ve grown to love Pretty Little Liars. Between all of the creepy moments (dolls, masks, etc.), terrifying Halloween episodes, and endearing friendships, what’s not to love?
We first met our Liars back in 2010 when a summer sleepover turned into a years-long mystery involving the “death” of Alison DiLaurentis. Throughout the years, we’ve laughed with them, screamed with them, and mourned with them (RIP Maya!), but the one thing that’s kept us coming back week after week is the love we have for Hanna, Emily, Spencer, and Aria. Plus, Rosewood has some serious eye candy. Oh, and we really want to know who “A” is.
So presented without commentary — and in no particular order — here are 100 reasons we love Pretty Little Liars.
1. The Liars' friendship. It's the heart of the show!
