Pretty Little Liars

Binge-watching PLL Season 7A

Here we are once again – for the last time until April – to review the first half of season 7 of Pretty Little Liars based on our handy point system. Season 7 picks up right we left off: Hanna’s trap has backfired and she’s now captured by Team “A.D.”, aka Alison’s creepy new husband Eliott and her even creepier Aunt, “Mary Drake“, so let’s get to it:
