Alison's finally getting some company behind bars. Sure, we knew this was coming for awhile now, but that didn't make it any easier watch as Hanna went to jail on Pretty Little Liars. Just when you thought things couldn't get worse than a vial of blood bursting in your bag during a college interview, A frames another liar for murder. Immediately after Hanna decided to expose A's dirty tricks and nasty texts from the past five seasons of the series. So, what does Hanna behind bars mean for the rest of the girls? Well, first they should definitely all look into getting good lawyers.
It's no secret that I love Hanna and think she's easily the greatest character on PLL. Which is also why I was so heartbroken (even with a warning) to watch her go down for Mona's murder in A's latest plot to frame the girls. And it definitely didn't help me to understand Ali's dilemma about whether or not she should take a plea deal and drag Hanna down with her. Ali eventually decided not to take the deal, after seeing Hanna carted into prison, but that doesn't mean anyone's troubles are over. Because this is PLL , people, you know how these things go.
So, what does this mean for the rest of the girls? Well, first of all, they've all lost their ammo and they're definitely not going to expose A to the police anytime soon. Just when Hanna was about to confess to Tanner to keep herself out of the orange jumpsuit, A wiped her phone history and then did the same to the rest of her friends when they considered doing the same thing to save her. So, the gloves are off here — it's official. We all know that A took Mona out of the game because she knew too much and she'd started to talk. And it's only fair to assume that A will feel the same way about the liars going rogue.
I've always feared A, but we really have a reason to fear the person behind the black hoodie now. I mean, they just put Hanna and Ali in jail for 10 to 15 years. That's no joke and it's a far cry from leaving messages in molars at the dentist's office. This game is getting darker and everyone should be worried — because it seems a lot like A might take someone else out for good before Season 5 ends. There's only on way for A to go from a jail sentence and that's toward another murder. Watch out, Rosewood.
