Pretty Little Liars’ 7 Worst Storylines
Pretty Little Liars was a far-fetched show from the get-go, but we love it and it’s proved to be entertaining for seven seasons. But fans were really disappointed after the big reveal of ‘A.’ It left some of us scratching our heads in confusion because it didn’t quite add up. It’s not the first ridiculous storyline to make it into the PLL series — the entire show was full of crazy plot twists and unsolved or unexplained murders like Mrs. DiLaurentis. Some characters have even vanished from the entire story, like Mrs. Grunwald, the psychic sorority mother who saved Ali from her shallow grave. The bizarre storylines definitely made the show interesting, but didn’t really make a lot of sense at the time. Here are 7 of the worst storylines from Pretty Little Liars:
7. Jason’s Shed
Spencer is wary of Jason and suspects him of being involved in Alison’s murder. Naturally, she breaks into his shed with Emily and discovers a dark room for developing photos. The bizarre twist is that all the photos are closeups of Aria’s face that were taken while she was sleeping. After breaking and entering, the two leave their flashlight behind. Jason finds it and immediately clears out the shed along with any trace of the photos. When questioned about the photos Jason denies that he took them. He claims the photos were taken by Alison and that he simply found them in the house and decided to develop them. But why did Ali take these weird pictures? He also said he wanted to frame one of the photos to give to Aria, and that he cleared out the shed after finding the flashlight because the equipment was expensive and he didn’t want to risk it getting stolen. It’s all really creepy on Jason’s part and what’s even worse is that the whole situation, mainly his creepy behavior, is forgotten afterwards.
6. Spencer’s Pill Addiction
Spencer’s previously unmentioned Adderall addiction returns in season 4. Viewers find out that during the summer Alison went missing, Spencer was hooked on study drugs. The plot twists again when Spencer realizes that she doesn’t remember much from that night. Memories slowly resurface over time and she is informed that she had been in an argument with Alison the night she disappeared (this was all covered up by her family). Spencer eventually begins to question whether she was involved in the disappearance of Alison. It seems hard to believe that Spencer would even begin to consider whether she had any part in Alison’s disappearance…how does someone forget if they committed murder? How much Adderall do you have to take to become so drug-induced you black out? The idea of introducing a drug problem was the usual antics of a drama series, but the rest of it just didn’t seem to add up.
