Hanna is alive we know that much but will she remain alive or will we lose one of our favorite Pretty Little Liars? The Season 7 premiere "Tick Tock Bitches" gave us some answers but left us with the same amount of questions the show is famous for.
In the beginning of the episode we saw Spencer, Emily, and Aria digging a grave which sounded like was for Hanna. Then we go to four days earlier with a count down to finding Charlotte's killer in order to save Hanna's life. We then have a scare that Hanna is hanging from the bell tower in the church supposed to be dead, but it is just a mask on a doll with a warning for the group that they have 24 hours to present A.D. or Uber A with Charlotte's killer or Hanna dies, "A lie for a Liar".
Tensions are high between the entire group but more so between Spencer and Caleb who recently became a new couple. In the Season 6 finale it was Caleb and Hanna's plan to try and catch Uber A or A emoji (whatever name you like best) and Caleb assured Hanna she would be fine right before a passionate kiss was shared.
Caleb has to be feeling so many emotions right now, which explains his outbursts and rash actions in this episode. Guilt is probably the biggest one here; guilt for letting down Hanna that she got caught and is suffering and guilt for kissing Hanna while he is still with Spencer who he is taking a lot of anger out on in this episode. Fear that he may never see Hanna again and that they may never be able to talk things out for he has yet to tell her or anyone how he really feels. So in this episode he teams up with none other that Mona who is being extremely helpful in this situation. They both go to tail our new found character Mary Drake Charlotte's birth mother who came into town and is thought to be behind Hanna's capture. After some evidence is presented to the group Caleb makes the choice to give it to Uber A in order to get Hanna back but will be giving someone else up in the exchange.
While Caleb is working on his end Spencer is working with her ex Toby to try and find out all they can on Mary Drake. Some lock picking, reading, and foreign languages gives them a little intake on Mary but not enough to find Hanna. Later Spencer get the opportunity to sit down and chat with Mary herself, and while dancing around small talk Mary reveals that Spencer's family is involved once again.
Emily is going back to Alison for she is the main suspect to murdering Charlott. The group does not know that Eliot is working with Mary, was in love with Charlotte and married Alison to get on the inside. Very creepy if you ask me, anyway Emily sees Alison in a state of not being in her right mind but a confession like statement comes out that gives Emily reason to believe she did it. Emily ventures into Alison's house and remembers all her feelings she's had toward Alsion in the past. Not wanting to believe her first love could have killed Charlotte goes out the window when she finds a red jacket that was worn by a blond the night Charlotte was murdered the blond is thought to be Alison. She finally gives this information to the group in time for Caleb to take it right to uber A in exchange for Hanna, but in doing so they will be giving up Alison.
Aria and Ezra are back in action, a previous hookup and a mission to search Alison's house for evidence while almost getting caught by Eliot. Aria later wonders what is this she is getting herself into with Ezra but then with all that's going on she doesn't care she just wants to be with him. A romantic motion that gives us some hope for one liars relationship, #Ezria.
Hanna is seen alive but not well, she is cold, wet, and being tortured by uber A while locked in a dark barn out in the middle of nowhere. During a dream Spencer comes to give her hope, hope in surviving and hope in getting out "If there's a way in there a way out". Hanna finds her way out of the bran but gets picked up on the side of the road but the one and only Mary Drake.
In the end Hanna is riding in a car with Mary, Eliot is confronting Alison and showing his true colors, and the rest of the group are waiting anxiously for uber A to return Hanna to them. And the questions we still have,
- Is Hanna really alive or is she dead?
- Did Alison kill Charlotte?
- Will all our favorite couples reunite or will they all be torn apart?
- Are Mary and Eliot the only two Uber A's or is there someone else lurking in the shadows?
Can't wait to see what next week's episode not to mention the rest of the season brings us, more questions im sure but provided answers in the end. The premiere of season 7 was very well done, expectations were hit and we are certain that season 7 will not disappoint.
