After waiting months for the biggest reveal in Pretty Little Liars history, our favorite show tricked us. Instead of being a corpse, a piece of Alison’s body, or something else horrifying and gruesome, it was just a gross dead pig.
Though the pig was a symbol for Detective Wilden’s death, which we found out later in the episode, it still felt like a bit of a let-down. Sure, we were setting ourselves up for disappointment with all the hype, and we’re used to unexpected twists and turns on PLL, but still, we waited the entire hiatus for that?
The rest of the episode’s creepy moments (and the pig being weird and gross) made up for a lack of initial shock, but did the unexpectedness of it being a dead animal and not a body disappoint you? Or, on the flipside, were you glad that they didn’t go the predictable route and stash Wilden or the Queen of Hearts — well, they’re actually one in the same, but alas — in the trunk instead?
We know you all have a lot of feelings, so vote in the reaction buttons below, and then hit the comments with what you thought of the What’s in the Trunk? reveal. We’ll be trying to erase the image out of our head, nonetheless.
