Pretty Little Liars Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Last Dance

at .  Updated at . Comments

Who knew the mothers on the show could be so interesting?

On Pretty Little Liars Season 6 Episode 9, the girls were forced to have their prom in Spencer's barn, but we knew they would somehow end up at the real one, right? Charles wanted to make sure his sister, Ali was there so that he could reveal who he really is.

It's been a long time coming, but it looks like we are finally getting the answers we so desperately deserve. If you follow the show on social media, you probably know some of the questions we'll be getting answers to. 

It was a genius move to have the mothers together for a change. Throw in a bottle of wine and you've got more wit than the liars have been able to throw our way in a few years. Veronica clearly wanted to get some things off her chest and that led them all to the DiLaurentis residence where they ran into that dude Rhys who totally doesn't look like Jason. 

I'm surprised they are still trying to make us believe he's part of that family, but I don't doubt that he locked them all in the basement. At this point, anyone could be working with A/Charles, and that's why we need to get some solid answers next week. This will really make or break the longevity of the series. It's been renewed for one more, but it could go on. If they try and drag the A storyline into Season 6B, expect a steep ratings drop. 

The barn prom was tacky to say the least. The girls really went all out to get dressed up in the end. Ashley Benson looked like a Disney princess in her dress. I couldn't help but laugh at Ezra being the designated photographer. Where's Clarke when you need him? 

Wait. 

Clarke isn't really a photographer. This was actually a shocking development. Here I was thinking he was in cahoots with the bad guys, but then he showed up at prom with a gun. That was a little crazy, but it makes sense. I've been so hard on Rosewood PD for being incompetent in the past, but it looks like they have some undercover officers in the fold now to end this thing once and for all. 

Alison continued on her quest to meet her brother before he meets his maker. I don't blame her. She wants answers as much as us. She isn't going to get them if he is attacked by a flurry of bullets. She knew the other liars couldn't be there, or it would ruin her chance of meeting him. That explains why she vented her anger on Spencer. Don't expect Spencer to be holding grudges and all. 

I'm going to throw in a theory for y'all since it's like one week until we get the truth. Wren is A/Charles. I think this makes the most sense because of the ties he has to the Hastings family. The guy has popped up in Radley in the past and always seems to be in the loop about what's going on. If this rings true, then Melissa must be his accomplice. I've long thought that she is Black Swan​, and this would make sense if she was working with him. 

Other tidbits from the episode:

  • Hanna was right to do some digging into why Caleb was bidding adieu just in time for prom. She would have had a good mind to hit him if he didn't see her in that get up. He's a real keeper. He has a job that can support her tuition and pay for them to live in NYC. 
  • I loved how Aria assumed Ezra was going with her and wanted to give him the cold shoulder. It was royally thrown in her face when he revealed that he wasn't going with her. How will she react to an Ezra-free life? Not quite as well as the fan base will react if Ezria is kept apart for much longer. I'm shocked she even got the internship. It was clearly a pity win, but it will give her the restart that she needs. 
  • I'm still not ruling Sara out of the equation. There is something seriously shady with her. The fact that she apparently dropped her real prom for Emily really adds fuel to the fire for me. 
  • Is anyone happy that Toby and Lorenzo are away from Rosewood PD? They will work way better as characters without that job. 

"Last Dance" was vintage Pretty Little Liars. It had hilarious moments that the show has been lacking for quite some time. It's amazing how just having everyone together makes for great TV. The wheels have been set in motion for what looks to be an exciting conclusion to the current timeline. How will it all end?

Remember you can watch Pretty Little Liars online right here on TV Fanatic. Why not catch up and check off some suspects before next week?
