Lucy Hale Wants ‘Pretty Little Liars’ to End ‘Really Tragically’
The ladies of Rosewood — the fictional Pennsylvania town where the main characters of Pretty Little Liars reside — have been through enough trauma to last quite a few lifetimes. But for one of the show’s lead actresses, Lucy Hale, it’s not enough.
The second half of the show’s sixth season premiered earlier this week, and the cast’s current whirlwind press tour has invited in a slew of questions, the most pressing of which is the oft-begged: How will it all end?
While most actors may wish good things for their characters, Hale (who plays Aria Montgomery) would rather a more morbid end for the liars. And for a show that thrives on consistently putting its main characters in mortal danger, it would make for a fitting finish.
“I mean, I used to say, ‘Oh, I want the girls to end up happy and live an A-free life,’ but I kind of want it to end really tragically,” Hale told E! News. “I know that sounds bad but I want people to be really upset like they’ve lost something when the show ends, ’cause I know my favorite shows have ended that way…Yeah, so, a tragic ending. I’ll just leave it at that.”
Do you agree with Hale’s assessment that the only way to feel true loss is to have a tragic ending? Is it a fitting way to close the book on Pretty Little Liars? Have they not yet suffered enough? Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments below.
