Pretty Little Liars - Farewell, My Lovely

The penultimate episode of Pretty Little Liars answers some questions while still leaving plenty to wrap-up in the series finale. With the police breathing down their necks, the Liars will come together in time to let someone else take the fall for one murder and discover the person behind the other. Apparently the game is over. Charlotte's (Vanessa Ray) murderer is revealed, and despite their adversary's multiple attempts to get the girls arrested for the death of Dunhill, Mary Drake (Andrea Parker) steps up to take responsibility for the whole sordid mess. The episode even picks up a loose thread of unfinished business between Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) and sufficiently wraps it up. So... what now?

While it's nice to see the group embrace Aria (Lucy Hale), after a proper tongue-lashing from her fiance, there's still plenty of questions which remained unanswered. What is going to happen to Mona (Janel Parrish)? Caleb and Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Alison (Sasha Pieterse) all appear to be in good places, but will we get to see Aria and Ezra (Ian Harding) actually tie the knot? And what about Spencer? Where does she go from here? And of course, who was A.D. and will they be unmasked in the series conclusion? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
