There has been so much anticipation leading up to the big Pretty Little Liars season finale that I was sitting on the edge of my seat as soon as it began. I have been reading that some feel it was a let down because the episodes leading up to it were so amazing or because we don’t find out who A is or because really not a lot of our questions have been answered. I have to say, I was not disappointed. I understand the criticism, and I, too, wish A had been revealed. However, fans of the book will note the brilliant subtleties and similarities with the Bell Tower scene (more on that later) and Officer Garrett Reynolds being just like Darren Wilden. The fact is, if they gave us the answer to who A is at the end of season one, that doesn’t give the show a lot of longevity. Of course, the A answer in the books isn’t the definitive answer as to who A is but I just think it will be more of a season two thing and as much as I don’t want to be patient, I think the payoff will be entirely worth it.
