It's that time of year again - time for Pretty Little Liars to knock over the first domino in its Rube Goldberg machine of reveals, launching the PLL army into the fall hiatus with their minds reeling.
From Mary (Andrea Parker) to Archer (Huw Collins) to Jenna (Tammin Sursok), season 7A was filled to the brim with new leads, red herrings, and familiar foes. On Aug. 30, the Freeform series will slot the disparate pieces into place, closing out the summer run with "The Darkest Knight."
"The Liars face off with their enemies in a chaotic fight that ends fatally," the network teased. "One of the PLLs learns a secret about her past that changes everything while another Liar discovers something about her future that could alter her course forever."
So, who's in line for the chopping block this year? We'll take the main players off the list right off the bat - if seven seasons have taught us anything, it's that Aria (Lucy Hale), Alison (Sasha Pieterse), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), and Hanna (Ashley Benson) aren't going anywhere. The Liars' go-to BF's, meanwhile, are also near the back of the execution line. Villains, however, are ripe for the picking. In other words, everyone from Jenna to Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) should watch their backs.
"Yesterday's playback of the #PLLSummerFinale," showrunner Marlene King teased on Saturday. "Many gasps and OMG's were heard."

To get to the finale, however, the Liars must make it through the next two episodes. "Exes and OMGs" (Aug. 16) will see the return of both Paige (Lindsey Shaw) and Mrs. Grunwald (Meg Foster) as our intrepid investigators seek out the doctor that delivered Mary's baby (or babies). "The Wrath of Kahn" (Aug. 23) will then focus on the Liars attempts to prove Noel is the one pulling their strings.
