I will be coming up with a recap in a day, but here's my thoughts….and I presume anyone clicking on the cut below should be smart enough to know that there will be tons of spoilers!
So what do I think of the finale?
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK. I'm disappointed that A turns out to be Mona! I mean after all the hype, and the casts themselves being really excited to see us getting mindblown by the identity of A, I was really expecting something big. Something that we didn't manage to see, and yet makes sense. Putting Mona as A is the most logical I admit but it's not the obvious answers that I think I'm looking for. Since Mona is A in the book, despite the producers' insistence that the tv series will be nothing like the books, it always leaves a seed of doubt in me, and I guess that's why when Spencer got into the car with Mona, I was wishing SO hard that it wouldn't be Mona. The thing is, I was hoping more of a smokescreen-then-wham-the-answers-in-your-face kind of finale, but in this case, what we have were two episodes full of lead ups. To me, Mona seems really suspicious as we get closer to the finale. So it wasn't all the "you are going to look back and wonder how you've missed it," because I didn't miss it.
That being said, there's still some burning questions that the finale has left. Why killed Maya? Is it because she knew who A was? Who is in the A-team? Who is the black swan? What happened to Lucas? Who is the ultimate A, or are they all As together?
More thoughts to come after I write the recap. Share with me if you have watched the finale already!
