Greetings #Boo crew! The leaves are changing, the days are getting longer, and the premiere of Season 7 of Pretty Little Liars is just around the corner. As you may have noticed in my recaps, I didn’t love Season 6 for a variety of reasons (i.e. Emily’s lack of storyline and love interest), but hopefully this finale season of PLL will pull out all the stops. Here’s the latest teaser trailer for Season 7, which seems to involve the Liars murdering someone and burying the body. Quelle surprise.

Okay, first things first: Why is everyone acting like this is the first time they’ve killed someone? I’m looking at you, Emily. Haven’t you killed like, 30 people by now? At least the Liars are using shovels now, which is way better than a beer mug. So you know, progress. Also, I’d put money on that dead body belonging to one Sara Harvey.
Recently, the kind folks at Warner Bros. TV sent me Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Sixth Season on DVD. Having already watched/been unimpressed by the season, I watched the deleted scenes and the DVD extras hoping to find Emily’s missing storyline. SPOILER ALERT: I got nothing. The DVD is padded with four short featurettes that delve into the flash forward, the prom episode, and the evolution of the Liars personal style. They also dedicate a featurette to PLL’s core ships: Spoby, Haleb, Ezria—and none for Emily.
In fact, Emily barely appears in the deleted scenes or the featurettes, except for an offhand comment about rekindling her romance with Paige when she was in California. Boo-urns. Not only do we get no Paige (or for that matter, Emison, calm down shippers) but season 6 didn’t even give Emily a boring stand-in relationship replacement like they did for Hanna and Aria.
Even the deleted scenes are sloppily edited and lack context or commentary. It’s literally “Spencer slams a door” and “leaves blow in the wind.” It is wildly inconsequential.
To sum it up, I do not recommend buying this DVD, especially when this season will probably be available on Netflix in the near future. In fact, is anyone buying DVDs anymore? Isn’t everything streaming? Will Warner Bros ever send me a free DVD set again after this review? We shall see, Boo crew. We shall see.
