15 Things We Don’t Want to Happen in the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Series Finale

We have some ideas for what we do want to see in the Pretty Little Liars series finale: our OTPs getting their happy ending, Uber A being revealed, and all of our questions answered.

But, moreover, there are lots of things we definitely don’t want to see in the final episode.

Marlene King, we hope you are taking notes, because here are 15 things that could potentially ruin the PLL series finale.

Pretty Little Liars returns Tuesday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.

1. We never learn the identity of “Uber A”

We think we all trust Marlene King enough that she would never let this happen. We will find out the identity of “Uber A,” and cross your fingers that the backstory and explanation make sense.

2. There are major timeline issues

Pretty Little Liars “A” reveals have burned us before with major timeline issues, and it can’t happen again.

Remember when a young Charlotte/Charles witnessed Marion Cavanaugh falling off the Radley roof? Remember also when a teenage Toby saw his mom alive? It made no sense and this finale should remedy the mistake.

We’ll cry forever if any of the following people are killed off: Aria, Emily, Spencer, Hanna, Mona, or Alison. No caveats; even if they are revealed to be “Uber A.”

4. A random character is “A.D.”

It can’t be someone we have never met before, someone who was in the background of a scene once, or someone whose name we already forgot because they aren’t important. We need a gut punch reveal, here, Marlene.

5. None of the OTP ships get together

You can’t break up Ezria, Haleb, Emison, and Spoby; at least one has to make it or what were these seven seasons of romances for?

On the other hand, it’s completely unrealistic for a bunch of 20-somethings to all end up happily married to their high school sweethearts. At least one of these couples has to move on and find someone more suited to their adult self. (Ahem, we’re looking at you, Spencer.)

7. There are no answers to who killed Sara Harvey

Was it “Uber A”? Was it Noel Kahn? Was it Jenna? Who killed Sara Harvey, Marlene? By the series finale, we need to know how Sara and her death played into this whole mystery.

8. Some kind of “A” is still torturing the Liars

Can we just let these ladies have a mostly happy ending, please? So many years of their lives have been dedicated to a tormenting, stalking maniac who knows all their secrets. Hopefully by the series finale, they can put that in their past.

9. Our favorite secondary characters don’t come back

OK, so we already know the beloved Wren Kingston is returning, but we really need a satisfying closure for that suspicious character.

We also need to see people like Lucas, Melissa Hastings, Eddie Lamb, Jason DiLaurentis, and my goodness even Mike Montgomery back in Rosewood again.

10. There’s no explanation for Noel Kahn

We were stoked to see Noel’s face in Rosewood again (“did you miss me?”), but boy did he leave us with a lot of questions: Why did he go all murdery? What was his connection with Jenna? What’s his connection to Maya? Where did his older brother disappear to?

We need answers!

Bring. Maya. Back. Her death is super shady — we mean, is she even dead? Plus, she was connected to Noel, who recently went on a murderous rampage and literally lost his head. She is connected to Holden, who is returning, and she may have been with Emily the night Emily dug up Alison’s grave.

It would be hard to have a satisfying series finale without wrapping up some of the Maya storyline.

That scene when the Liars rush into Alison’s classroom to warn her that “he” is here still hasn’t happened yet. Which, is totally weird because Alison is writing “Mrs. Rollins” on the board and she’s already back to being a DiLaurentis. Please don’t abandon this.

13. The parents are MIA

We know they’re not all still locked in the DiLaurentis basement, but we haven’t gotten nearly enough of the Liars’ parents in Season 7. They’re a vital part of the show (especially because they keep having secret children) and we need to see their faces in the finale.

Pretty Little Liars is at its best when (at the very least) Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer are together and being super sleuths. Please, series finale, you need to bring them all together for the final, final act.

15. It’s a miserable ending for the Liars

Let’s see: They’ve been trapped in coffins with a dead body, kidnapped and held in a torture lair, almost died in a house fire, had their eggs stolen, had unconsenting dental surgery, been driven insane and sent to Radley… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Happily ever after for the Liars, please.
