Pretty Little Liars is full of twists and turns, and that’s why we love it. There are also some pretty wild moments that leave us blown away. From near death experiences to disguises to terrible romantic decisions to random bones popping up everywhere, here are twenty-one PLL moments that had us thinking, “WTF?”
1. Spencer almost gets killed by her own shower.
In Rosewood, nearly everything is trying to kill you, even your appliances. A uses Spencer’s fancy steam shower to try and teach her a lesson. Thankfully Aria wasn’t too far away. #TeamSparia
2. Hanna finds a message from A in her teeth.
As if dealing with necklaces made of dead people’s teeth or going to the dentist wasn’t stressful enough, Hanna managed to get a message from A implanted in her back molars. Don’t forget to floss, kids.
3. Mona discovers a cow brain in her locker.
When Mona returns to school after her time at Radley, there’s an unpleasant surprise waiting in her locker, thanks to Caleb and Paige. How rude.
4. Emily's wild ride.
One night that seemed to last for an eternity, Emily got drugged, drove around with Jenna, saw Red Coat, kissed Paige, hung out with Holden and had pancakes (probably) and dug up a grave. Wow.
5. When Pepe the dog discovered Mrs. D’s body (probably with some help from Tippy).
The animals of PLL are basically just harbingers of doom. Poor Mrs. D was buried in Spencer’s backyard and it took an over zealous pup to accidentally find her body. Sad woof.
6. Hanna gets a pink drink to the face.
Hanna Marin is totally the kind of friend who would hit up a local gay bar to spy on your girlfriend. If anyone can take a some colorful beverages to the face with style, it’s Hanna.
7. When Ashley received an unfortunate haircut in Hanna’s nightmare.
A stressed out Hanna experienced a harrowing dream of her mother rocking an orange prison jumpsuit and a really bad ‘do. Luckily, Ashley did not go all Melrose Place, but we’re pretty sure it was homage to the 90’s show’s wackiest moment. (Actress Laura Leighton was one of the stars of Melrose Place.) Nicely played, PLL.
8. When Adam Lambert showed up for Halloween.
He took the time from his busy tour schedule to play the Rosewood High School Halloween bash, and flirt a little with Aria.
9. When Ella moved to Europe to follow her pastry chef boyfriend.
When the Liars’ parents aren’t out of town, Ella is one of the more capable rents — which makes it all the more WTF that she left Aria and Mike to follow her sketchy boyfriend to make cronuts in Switzerland (or something).
10. Jenna playing the flute on her porch.
Only Jenna could make playing the flute so menacing.
11. Ravenswood. Like any moment there.
Oh Ravenswood, you creepy Instagram filter of a town. Ghosts, buses to nowhere, THE GRUNWALD! Also, once Caleb was back in Rosewood, no one ever spoke of it again. Kind of like when Emily dated Samara.
12. There’s always time for a fashion show!
Between getting almost murdered and attempting to graduate high school, the Liars always had time to participate in a fashion show. Now that’s dedication to style.
13. All the masks!
Have you ever worn the mask of your friend’s face? How about a mask of your own face on your face? And have you ever slipped a mask of another person’s face onto your favorite eerie doll to make everyone wrongfully assume he/she was dead? There are seriously more masks in Rosewood than the prop room of Phantom of the Opera.
14. Sara Harvey.
Seriously, everything about that girl is an enigma, wrapped in a mystery, shrouded in a loofah. We still hold a grudge for playing Emily like that, Showers. You can’t wash off evil with Bath and Body Works.
15. Ashley dating Pastor Ted.
Seriously Ash, that dude was way too vanilla for you. Plus he manhandles cookies.
16. Toby becoming a cop.
Seriously, Toby? Perhaps you had a few too many special gummy bears before making this decision.
17. Radley Sanitarium Tapas Bar Bed and Breakfast.
When Ashley Marin decided to buy the Radley and turn it into a hotel/bar, we admit we were kinda shocked. Not at all confusing or weird and there are surely no angry ghosts dancing in the basement.
18. When Spencer lost her shiz and tried to kill Mona over the academic decathlon.
After losing her spot to Mona on the decathlon team, Spencer went a little bananas and tried to choke her frenemy in front of half the school. Have a brownie, Spence.
19. A's obsession with dolls.
What’s creepier than a clown? A doll that threatens to kill you. “Follow me, end up like me.” Cryptic much, Raggedy Alison? And don'[t even get us started on the little kid who works at the doll shop.
20. Tippy eating chicken.
Oh the zoomanity! The poor bird became an unsuspecting cannibal thanks to A. Polly just wants a cracker. *sob*
21. When Aria and Emily found a fake head in Rollins' burner apartment.
Emily captured our exact sentiments when the Murphy bed crashed to the floor and a head casually rolled out. “Who keeps a fake head stuffed under his pillow?” she cried.
Welcome to Rosewood, folks.
