We've talked extensively about MIA characters we want to see return to Pretty Little Liars, but we realize that Rosewood is not a real town, and in the TV world you have pesky things like budgets and limited screen time to contend with when trying to bring back old favorites.

With that in mind, we've decided to propose a few characters who we'd personally like to see cut in favor of some of the missing characters who provide a little more oomph (and eye candy!).

Shana. The show has done a decent job fleshing Shana out. We like her as a character more now than we did when she first showed up, and we definitely have some questions about WTF she's up to, but in the end we don't need her. There are already a thousand mysterious characters to cause the necessary confusion, and we care more about finding out answers about Jenna and CeCe. We'd be perfectly content to see Shana disappear, and just have explanations about her place in the plot be wrapped up with answers about other characters.

Maggie. Now that Ezra might be "A" we care even less about his baby drama than we did before. We'll always love Alex Mack Larisa Oleynik, but we wouldn't miss her if she never showed her face in Rosewood again.

Pastor Ted. We want Ashley Marin to be happy, but we'd be down for her relationship with Ted remaining strictly off screen. Unless Ted turns out to have ulterior motives, we're completely bored by him.

Who would you cut from the show? Sound off in the comments below.
