In the summer finale of Pretty Little Liars, the girls ventured to Ravenswood in this jaw-dropping episode. Beware of spoilers moving forward.

On tonight’s Pretty Little Liars season 4, episode 12 season finale, the girls received Magic 8 balls which warn that if Ashley (Laura Leighton) is set free, A is coming after them. As Travis declines to identify Ashley in a line-up, Ezra (Ian Harding) lusts after Aria (Lucy Hale) while in class quoting Shakespeare’s The Tempest. A little much, don’t you think? Aria meanwhile struggles between the pull of Ezra and Jake (Ryan Guzman), who does not have the same poetry tastes.

Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) comforts Ashley while the District Attorney decides to drop the charges against her. Paige (Lindsey Shaw) worries about Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) safety and invites her to stay the night. Spencer (Troian Bellisario) continues to call Toby (Keegan Allen) after he disappeared after their fight at the hoedown.

Ashley goes out with Pastor Ted (Edward Kerr) just as the girls receive a doll worrying of Mona’s (Janel Parrish) eminent demise. According to the news, CeCe (Vanessa Ray) is on the run and is guilty of killing Detective Wilden (Bryce Johnson). Do you believe this is true?

Spencer tries to contact Wren (Julian Morris) but discovers that his place is packed up as if he’s ready to go. Meanwhile, Shana (Aeriel Miranda) is hiding out in Wren’s apartment. Could she be the partner he called? Emily and Paige try to track down Mona with limited success.

Toby goes through his mother’s stuff and ignores Spencer’s pleas to help him. He finally is moved to call her when he discovers that Shana has Wren’s new address, which happens to be Melissa Hasting’s (Torrey DeVitto) flat in London. Toby decides to not pursue his mother’s death in order to placate Spencer. Do you agree with his decision?

Jake and Aria’s date ends early as he sleeps through the feature. She then goes to the brew and catches Ezra after the poetry reading. The two then discuss a past poem in a very formulaic love scene and kiss as Red Coat looks on.

Spencer demonstrates her magic skills as she uncovers A’s latest trick. Spencer theorizes that A wants to put on an act for Rosewood. Toby trails Shana driving Mona’s car while the Pretty Little Liars discover that a magic show is going on in Ravenswood. Looks like a field trip is in order.

Aria is selected by the magician to disappear, and after a moment of suspense, reappears without a scratch. It appears that the real trick was making Emily disappear. The Pretty Little Liars call Emily, who is hysterical and near the sawmill. The girls chase Red Coat, who leads them into the warehouse with Emily. They save Emily and discover that there are two Red Coats. Aria fights one Red Coat who is revealed to be CeCe before she falls seemingly to her death.

As the girls freak out over CeCe, she moves her fingers and disappears. Spencer shows the girls A’s lair, which she believes Ali led her to. It is full of photos, timelines, and computers that monitor the Pretty Little Liars’ whereabouts. Toby follows Shana to a bed and breakfast where she meets Mona. The girls discover a bank account which reveals that CeCe is an employee, not the head of it. Aria sees Wren on the timeline while Hanna sees men’s clothing in the closet. It appears that A was also following Ali.

Mrs. Grunwald warns the girls about following Allison and wants to protect her. She reveals that Ali was afraid and was being threatened. Mrs. Grunwald has the gift of insight and helped save Ali on the night of her murder out of the dirt. Mrs. Grunwald apparently drove Ali to the hospital, and when she went to get help, she disappeared. Mrs. Grunwald warns them that they’re being watched and that he is watching them.

Caleb gets on the bus to Ravenswood just as the girls receive the foreboding message. In the last few minutes it is revealed that Ezra followed the girls and went back to the lair. When do you think Ezra had time to become A? What do you think are his motivations?

What do you think of Pretty Little Liars season 4, episode 12? This episode had major reveals and completely flipped the series on its head. What do you think of Ezra as A? Have you processed this episode yet?

Pretty Little Liars resumes with its Halloween episode in Ravenswood on October 22 at 8 p.m. EST.

The Guardians of the Galaxy have been pretty busy lately while they gear up for Vol. 2. On Friday we learned that they’ll be showing up in Avengers: Infinity War, and tonight we got a sneak peek of a creature the team will be taking on in the GotG sequel.

Taking to Twitter, Gunn showed off a piece of concept art created by Andy Park.

In his replies, he names the creature and states that, no, they aren’t fighting in space.

Then taking to Facebook, Gunn replied to fans who had questions about the image.

An updated synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reads:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

So it looks like for those who were lucky enough to see GotG 2 footage at San Diego Comic-Con this year, you’ve already seen this guy in action.

Maisie Williams freaks out over ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 scripts

"Nothing will prepare you for this."

7:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

At first, Williams warned fans to steel themselves for the epic events to come.

…but apparently, no amount of mental toughness will be enough for season 7.

To summarize, Game of Thrones fans the world over are now sizzlingly jealous of Maisie Williams… and also, apparently, well and truly screwed.

With George R.R. Martin’s next installment in A Song of Ice and Fire still achingly absent, there’s almost no way to predict the major events of Game of Thrones season 7. Our only theory is that we should probably say goodbye to the feelings we managed to resuscitate after Jon Snow came back to life.

Williams isn’t the only member of the cast hinting at madness to come. Maisie’s on-screen sister Sophie Turner revealed that she too had advance knowledge while pondering Sansa’s future.

“I’ve actually just got the scripts for seven,” Turner tells Variety. “So I don’t want to say too much, because I’ll probably end up slipping some truths out!”

Seven forbid, Sophie. Seven forbid.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air some time in 2017, but not soon enough.

What madness do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 has in store?

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

The eight-book Anne of Green Gables series has been adapted numerous times over the years (including the well-known, two-part 1985 televised miniseries), but this will arguably be the biggest adaptation to date thanks to the potential audience Netflix could pull in.

According to Deadline, “the coming-of-age series will focus on a young girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time — and thanks to her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination — 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live.”

The new adaptation “will honor the foundation of the book, but will incorporate new adventures reflecting themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice, and trusting one’s self.”

The series will be set in 1890. The first book was published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide.
