The Friendships Between The Perfectionists
One of the most critical aspects of Pretty Little Liars was the friendships between The Liars. On Pretty Little Liars, we knew the Liars had been best friends before Alison's disappearance, a fact the writers were able to build off of. The writers had to develop the Perfectionists' friendships from scratch. Once the bonds started to emerge, the show found its stride. The Perfectionists have already come so far and overcome so much together. If we get a second season, these friendships will only continue to grow stronger, and the show will only get better for it.
Alison's Character Growth
Alison has always been a stellar character, but she felt second fiddle to the Liars. Alison came into her own during PLL: The Perfectionists Season 1. Letting her grow outside of the Liars allowed her to shed her queen bee mean girl persona and become the character she was always meant to be. Without a second season, we might not ever get to see her reach her full potential. Also, who wouldn't love to get to see if Alison becomes single-handedly responsible for the great wine drought of Beacon Heights?
Mona was the most underutilized character on Pretty Little Liars. Once the writers revealed she was A, her role instantly became one of the most exciting aspects of the show. However, the writers consistently pushed her to the background instead of embracing her and all her craziness. The writers aren't making the same mistake this time around. Mona is one of the highlights of PLL: The Perfectionists and if a second season means more witty one-liners from her, then bring it on bitches.
Out of the three Perfectionists, Ava is the most intriguing to me. It was easy to assume when the show started that Ava was a superficial character, but we quickly learned that there are many layers to her. We have only begun to peel these layers back. Nolan knew secrets about Caitlin and Dylan, but we never really learned if he knew any about Ava. It would be easy to assume if he did, that it was just that Ava had her dad's stolen money, but there could be more. It seems there is even more to Ava than meets the eye right now, but we need a Season 2 to get to it.
Caitlin Accepting Imperfection
Caitlin is the definition of a perfectionist. The fact that she would rather fake a relationship with Nolan than have the world find out about her mom's infidelity shows the lengths that she would go to for that perfection. The closer that Caitlin became to Ava and Dylan, the more she let down her perfect exterior. Season 2 would allow her to grow even more and learn that perfection is nothing more than a pretty little lie.
Dylan Continuing To Improve
Dylan was the hardest character for me to get on board with at the start of PLL: The Perfectionists Season 1. He felt cold and withdrawn. While Caitlin went along with Nolan's blackmail ultimately to protect her family, Dylan was on board for selfish reasons. I couldn't help but feel like he partially deserved it. Throughout the season though my tune changed and Dylan became a bright light of the show. If we were giving out superlatives for the season, he would be Most Improved, and I hope we get to continue this improvement during a second season.
