‘Pretty Little Liars’ is finally back, and we totally freaked out during the Season 7 premiere on June 21! The last time we saw the liars, Hanna was kidnapped — so was she saved? Keep reading our recap to find out!
Ever since Hanna (Ashley Benson) was kidnapped in the Season 6B finale of Pretty Little Liars, we were dying to know what would happen next and tonight, we finally found out! Season 7 premiered on June 21, and it was insane.
The episode started with the liars digging a hole! “How could we let this happen?” Aria (Lucy Hale) asked the girls, as they all cried and screamed about “first degree murder.” Gulp. Then, we flashed to four days earlier, where Caleb (Tyler Blackburn), Ezra (Ian Harding), Toby (Keegan Allen), Mona (Janel Parrish) and the liars spotted Mary Drake (Andrea Parker) walking into City Hall. She filed a report, claiming someone broke into her property, the Lost Woods Resort. Obviously, it was them.
Just moments later, when the bell at the church rang, they all ran to see what set it off, and it was none other than Hanna’s dead body — or so it seemed. When Caleb ran up and lowered her body from the bell’s rope, they discovered it was a doll with a prosthetic mask of Hanna’s face. When they pulled a string from the back of the doll, it told them they have 24 hours to turn over Charlotte’s real killer or Hanna will really be killed.
We later came to learn that Hanna was being kept in some sort of dungeon. She was tortured and put through hell before she had a dream, during which Spencer told her if there’s a way in, there’s definitely a way out. So when Hanna woke up, she found a way out and escaped! Unfortunately, she ran right into Mary Drake. But this all happened throughout the course of the episode. Keep reading below to find out what happened concurrently.
Immediately after getting that cryptic message from Uber A, everyone met at Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) house, where they voted on who they think killed Charlotte. Most of the votes named Alison (Sasha Pieterse), but Spencer and Mona were also named. (We’re assuming they named each other.) Then, a few of the liars followed Mary Drake to see what she was up to, while Spencer and Toby broke into the Lost Wood Resort. Once inside, they found a plant ticket, proving Mary Drake flew from London to Philadelphia a week before Charlotte’s death, giving her an ample amount of time to become A.D. (the person who’s been threatening the liars through texts).
Meanwhile, Emily (Shay Mitchell) went to Rollins and tried to get Alison out of the psychiatric hospital, but Alison was acting manic and Rollins quickly sedated her. So that didn’t bode well for Emily’s plan to break Alison out. Plus, Rollins is also evil, so there’s that… During a quiet moment alone, Emily asked Alison if she killed Charlotte. She didn’t really answer because she was sleeping, but when she woke up, she said, “God, please forgive me,”so of course, Emily assumed the worst. But maybe Ali did do it… When Emily returned to Alison’s childhood home, she found a red jacket in a box. And as soon as she saw it, she said, “Oh, Ali. What did you do?”
Aria and Ezra didn’t have a lot of time to talk about the sex they recently had, but during a quick moment alone, Aria said she needed time to think about it all, and whether it was just a slip… or something more. Then, on her way home, Aria stopped by Snookers (the bar she met Ezra at!) after Caleb discovered Mary Drake was talking to some sort of British man there — via telephone. But when Aria heard her and Ezra’s song play on the jukebox, she raced back to him and said she didn’t care how they defined their relationship at the moment, she just wanted to be with him. Aww!
Once everyone got back together, Emily told the group what she found at Alison’s (the red jacket). She also told them about how Ali supposedly confessed to murdering Charlotte. So when no one was looking, Caleb stole the jacket and ran off to hand it over to Uber A. That way, they could get Hanna back. But what it did was led Rollins to inject Alison with a crazy serum because he now thinks she killed Charlotte.
