Being a fan of Pretty Little Liars requires a ton of patience, decent detective skills, and the ability to not pee your pants any time something crazy-scary happens. Basically, it's a tough job! Even though we're on Season 6 of PLL, we're still left with just as many questions as when we started. Actually, there are probably even more now, with the most important being — who is Charles? And why is he so obsessed with Ali DiLaurentis and her friends?
Believe it or not, this game of questions has been going on for longer than you'd expect. Today is the fifth anniversary of the show's debut on ABC Family! Yes, seriously. The PLL pilot premiered on June 8, 2010. That makes it five years of cliffhangers, murders, and, most obviously, lies.
If anything, Pretty Little Liars fans deserve a round of applause for putting up with the show's plot twists for that long! Just when we think we have the slightest idea about what's happening — NOPE. A new character appears, or an old character (who we thought was dead) actually isn't. Because of course, anything is possible in Rosewood.
In honor of the show's five years on the air, here's a round-up of 75 unanswered Pretty Little Liars questions that we've accumulated from Season 1 until now. Fingers crossed that we get some answers soon!
