Game Over, Charles.


Okay, we are finally here! The big A reveal. It's been five years in the making (and unlike some people) I am beyond thrilled with who A is, and what caused them to become like this. Before the reveal I really didn't want this person to be A, and when I found out before actually watching the episode it just started adding up in my head and wow Marlene King is just amazing for putting this all together and for it to make sense. I certainley never expected to feel sorry for A, but the story was so emotional that I just wanted to give Cece a massive hug. Another person who deserves the biggest recognition is Vanessa Ray, her acting was crazy amazing and made me love Cece Drake so much more than I did already!

This episode starts off with Alison, Emily, Spencer, Aria and Hanna running up a flight of stairs to get to a roof where A is standing on a ledge and they are trying to talk them out of jumping.
Earlier that night at prom Hanna, Spencer, Aria, Emily and Sara are in the maze talking about finding Ali when Aria sees someone else, who turns out to be Mona and she tells them she has been following Ali and that the signals from the texts lead back to the Carrissimi Group.
A is then seen dragging a body by their feet and when you see their face is it Jason Dilaurentis.
Ali wakes up in a Radley room, there are photos around of her face covered with Charles'..she then sees her dads 'dead' body.

The girls go to the Carrissimi Group, trying to get in a restricted room guessing the password and surprise surprise Sara Harvey knows it! The girls enter a big room that has an interactive table in it, Sara doesn't go in and then the door closes on her. They then see the room where Ali is in and see Jason and Mr Dilaurentis' bodies. Ali is talking to A and when A turns around it is revealed to be Cece Drake.
Cece (originally Charles Dilaurentis) tells Ali that she loved her. Flashback- Charles is playing tea party and baby Ali starts crying, he tries to get Mrs Dilaurentis' attention but when he can't he decides to try and make her feel better by giving her a bath. Mr Dilaurentis runs in and starts shouting at Charles 'what is wrong with you?!'
Mr and Mrs Dilaurentis are then seen leaving Charles at Radley, when they are walking away Mr Dilaurentis is convincing Mrs D they are doing the right thing.
Cece tells Ali that she never meant to hurt her, and that she thinks Mr Dilaurentis knew it was an accident but wanted to get rid of Charles because he never liked the fact Charles wanted to be a girl. Cece tells Ali Mr Dilaurentis and Jason aren't dead, they just can't move but they can hear and Mona tells the girls that is what happened to her when she 'died'.

Cece tells Ali then when she was 12 their mum bought her a yellow dress for Christmas and that she bought Cece and Ali the exact same clothes. Flashback- Charles and Bethany on the Radley roof when Mrs Cavanaugh comes up, Charles didn't want her to see him so asked Bethany to cover for him and she ends up pushing Mrs Cavanaugh off the roof and blames Charles. Cece tells Ali that 'nobody believed the boy in the dress' and it is revealed that Mrs Dilaurentis paid Wilden to cover up the death. I don't understand why Hanna gets pissy when Ali says she's sorry to Cece, like why can Hanna forgive Mona? but Ali can't forgive Cece?!
Cece tells Ali that when Charles 'died' at 16 that is when Charlotte was born.

The girls then see Red Coat turning up at Radley and setting an explosive up. Cece got into U Penn by always studying while being locked up. 'One day classes were cancelled...okay I called in a bomb threat' like I love Cece!!
Flashback- Cece and Jason meeting for the first time, he asks for her name and that is where Cece Drake is born...but she dated her brother and that is super super weird. Mrs D finds out that Jason and Cece are dating. Mrs D tells Cece that Mr D thinks she is really dead. When Mr D met Cece for the first time, it was honestly heartbreaking, like that was his daughter and he had no idea!

Ali asks Cece why she never told her that she was her sister and she said she was going to but Bethany ruined everything. She stole Cece's clothes and left Radley on 'that night'.
Flashback- Cece sees who she thinks is Bethany and hits her from behind and doesn't realise she hit Ali until it was too late. Mrs D is burying Ali while Cece is crying promising that she thought it was Bethany.
Mona is seen crying and she tells the girls that she killed Bethany, she thought she hit Ali that night but if Cece hit Ali, then she 'killed an innocent person' and Spencer Hastings to the rescue with 'Bethany wasn't innocent'.
Flashback- Mrs D paying Wilden, telling him what to tell Radley when he drops Cece there.

Cece tells Ali that she was alone in Radley after that night until Mona came along.
Flashback- the 'I did everything you ask me to' scene, Cece is wearing a pink robe not a red coat. Mona thought that she was Ali, Cece asked her to talk about the girls so she could learn about them. Cece needed Mona's help to leave.
Flashback- the girls first meeting Cece. 
Cece tells Ali that she started seeing a blonde in a red coat and thought she was losing it because she watched Mrs D bury her,so on the night of the lodge fire she sent a decoy, who turns out to be Sara Harvey!
Flashback- the girls waking up after the fire, Cece watching them, gets teary and happy when Hanna, Mona and Spencer say they all saw Ali.
Cece is then trying to justify all the things she has done by saying that she never truly hurt anybody and that they're all still alive.
Flashback- Wilden's funeral, black widow gets into the is Sara and she tells Cece that he is dead.

The girls are then talking about Sara which makes Emily try and get out, which she does not succeed at. Spencer finds the way out and all girls leave except Mona who 'needs to know how the story ends'.
Flashback- Cece goes to say goodbye to Mrs D before she goes somewhere but when she gets there she finds her dead body lying on the floor and she sobs into it.

An alarm starts going off, the girls turn up to Radley and see Sara. Cece tries to set the explosive off but Spencer has already disconnected it.
Ali runs out to get help, Sara tries to run but Emily grabs her to which Sara goes 'I tried to keep you safe' but Emily decides to knock her out and the girls run to the roof. They tell Cece not to jump off, Ali screams 'Charlotte, please don't do this' and she gets off the ledge and tells the girls 'game over'.
Labour Day- Alison, Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily are all saying goodbye to each other before they go their separate ways, which was really emotional! But the cutest part was when Spencer and Hanna were hugging and Spencer goes 'bye baby HannaBanana'.

5 years later- (eeek we have entered the time jump) the camera goes over the desks of a classroom to someone writing the name 'Mrs Rollins' on a blackboard. Aria runs in and says 'he's coming for you' the teacher turns around and its Ali. Emily and Hanna then run in telling her they need to go and Emily says 'We came back here for you Ali, so move it'. Spencer is the last to run in and say 'it's too late, he's already here'

I am beyond amazed at this finale...the reveal was amazing and the time jump looks fabulous! Like who is 'he?!' Is it someone we already know? someone new? Eeek I just can't wait to find out!!
