'Pretty Little Liars' Finale Scoop: 'We're Left With a Huge Cliffhanger,' Says Ashley Benson

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 10th 2010 2:20PM
Ashley BensonIf you're expecting some answers on tonight's summer finale of 'Pretty Little Liars,' well, you might be waiting awhile.

When we spoke with 'Pretty Little Liars' star Ashley Benson last week, the words "huge cliffhanger" came into play more than once. Though the actress did reveal that we'll get more clues as to who's been harassing the Rosewood ladies about their dirty secrets and their friend Alison's death, we won't actually find out much.

Want to know who A is? Too bad, you're going to have to wait. Want to know what happened to Toby? You're out of luck on that one, too. Want to know who killed Allison? Forget about it. Loathe to spoil the mystery surrounding the cliffhanger, Benson wouldn't even spill much about that, either, so you'll have to wait until the episode airs tonight to learn more.

Here's what we do know: "In the mid-season finale we're left with a huge cliffhanger," she said. "I don't know what's going to happen with that, because it's huge. We'll see what happens [next season], but I have no idea. I'm so anxious to see what the writers came up with."

Read on for the rest of the hints Benson gave us about tonight's finale.

Spring is definitely on the way, and not just because we'll be spring forward with the clocks this weekend. No, it's on TV that spring is busting out all over. 'Army Wives' is returning with a new season, 'Glee' is coming back to finish this season, even 'Friday Night Lights' will finally commence on NBC -- after already having a complete run on DirecTV. One of the premieres that's got me intrigued is the March 31st 'In Plain Sight' on USA Network.

'Leverage' - 'The Three Strikes Job' Recap

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 11th 2010 11:05AM

(S02E14) "This is how we're going to take down the mayor...We're going to steal his ball park, and then the team. Not necessarily in that order." - Nathan to his team


Of course, that's what the show wants you to think. It has sprinkled that little tidbit on promos and commercials and even as a billboard opener in last night's episode. It turned out to be a great trick, a bit of slight of hand magic with a major cable network.

At one point, you think it's going to be a political mystery, a promising start since the story can literally go anywhere and make coherent sense. The plot could turn to S&M midgets selling pony meat on the black market and it would make a great twist as long it points back to the corrupt politician caught holding the riding crop.

But then it switches gears over and over into whole new mysteries and directions until your head becomes a revolving restaurant leaving you both confused but strangely satisfied.

Mr. Monk and the series ending ratings record

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 7th 2009 10:28AM
monk_natalie_usaTelevision history will show that when USA's obsessive-compulsive detective series Monk ended its eight-season, it went out in a dramatic way. I won't tell you what happened on screen in case it's still in your DVR and you haven't watched it yet. But off screen, Mr. Monk had a happy ending.

The final episode of Monk was seen by approximately 9.4 million total viewers, nearly a third in the all-important 18-49 adult demographic. Obviously, a lot of people cared about how Adrian Monk would say goodbye.

The ratings were not only impressive, there were legendary. The largest number of viewers and demo of any drama series ever on cable. It surpassed TNT's The Closer.

Drop Dead Diva: Grayson's Anatomy (season finale)

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 12th 2009 3:12AM
Drop_dead_diva_Brooke(S01E13) Drop Dead Diva has lived up to the pilot/premiere, and in some ways, exceeded it. The Deb/Jane dichotomy has morphed into someone different than either pure Deb or pure Jane. Brooke Elliott is wonderful as "New Jane" with just a hint of Deb. As season one comes to a close, even if the writers hadn't left us with a cliffhanger ending, I'd be more than anxious to tune in next year.

There were two interesting cases on the docket for the finale, with Stacy offering lots of comic relief as second stool -- chair -- to Grayson in a lawsuit brought by a lingerie model who'd been fired because she went public with her surviving breast cancer. Jane's case was more complex, but not until after it had been won. More on both cases, and Jane's dilemma on the dating front, after the jump.

Learn whom Annie hit in the season finale of 90210

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 31st 2009 8:00PM
90210 on The CWThe first season finale of The CW spin-off 90210 ended with a cliffhanger that had fans wondering whom or what Annie hit with her car at the end of the episode.

In comments to my review of the finale, TV Squad readers said that, more than likely, Annie hit someone. So whom exactly did she hit? Some claimed it was Ethan since the actor is not returning next season. Others went as far as thinking Annie hit David Silver.

Annie did hit a person, and it's not Ethan or David. Want more info?

Warning! Major spoilers coming up! You've been warned!

How I Met Your Mother: Miracles
(S03E20)
Wow, talk about a jam-packed episode. We saw major character development, flashbacks upon flashbacks, some issues resolved and others completely thrown into chaos, and a whole lot of funny talk of miracles.

Oh, and we saw Sarah Chalke, as Carter Bays told me last week. That was just cherry on the sundae, though.

Since so much stuff happened, let's just get to it after the jump, OK?

Stargate Atlantis: The Last Man (season finale)

David Hewlett and Joe Flanigan - Stargate Atlantis
(S04E20) "This is the most elaborate practical joke of all time, or I'm in serious trouble." -- John Sheppard

And there you have it. Atlantis wraps up its fourth season, its first out on its own, with a little time travel and a big cliffhanger ending. It was a finale that I had heard described as "different." Having now seen it, it's hard to argue with the description. Having 56 minutes of your finale be things that didn't actually happen is certainly not the norm. While we can probably all agree on the different label, the bigger question is, "Was it good?"

It's still interesting to see what got people excited last season.

Here are just a few of the results, to see the full list, click here:

Best Drama: House

My Name is Earl: The Trial (season finale)

by Brad Linder, posted May 10th 2007 9:41PM
Earl the Trial(S02E23) Next season on My Name is Earl: a very special crossover episode starring Prison Break's Wentworth Miller. When Hickey and Scofield find themselves sharing a bunk in a Panamanian prison, Scofield tries to break Earl out, but failing that promises to take over Earl's list.

But seriously, everything that happened in this episode was entirely predictable -- about 10 seconds in advance. Earl hooks up with the deaf lawyer. Saw that coming, a few seconds before it happened. Deaf lawyer dumps Earl after taking a closer look at his list. I needed about 15 seconds for that one. Earl makes a sacrifice to help Joy. Not too surprising.

NCIS: Trojan Horse

by Brett Love, posted May 9th 2007 9:04AM
mark harmon(S04E23) This was kind of a confusing episode to me. Not that the story was hard to follow, just that it seemed poorly conceived. I thought the case of the week was well done, but kind of out of place. With it being the end of the season, and the plan already in place to make this a two parter, I would have rather seen something that focused in on the big stories.

It almost felt like flipping the channels between two episodes that were running at the same time. The brief phone conversations between Gibbs and Shepard kind of tied the two stories together, but more than anything, they just pointed out that the story of the week was taking up time that could have been spent on La Grenouille. Maybe I'm just a little impatient, having caught a bit of the finale fever, but it just didn't all fit together for me.

Showtime orders more Weeds

Weeds Doug Nancy CeliaIt's official, Weeds fans! Right when everyone was getting paranoid that Showtime might leave viewers in a lurch, they've given the greenlight for a season three with fifteen new episodes in the works.

The show's recent season finale was the most watched in the series' short history. It was the kind of cliffhanger Lost only wishes it could muster these days. Nancy and Conrad are screwed in the Tarantino, multiple guns pointed at them kind of way. Silas is on the verge of being busted with enough weed in his trunk to keep Snoop Dogg's crew happy for a long time. Shane is halfway to Costa Rica with Andy's loony tunes ex-girlfriend. Doug and Dean are mid-tussle on the Botwin floor, and poor Peter is nowhere good.

Brotherhood: Matthew 22:10 (season finale)

Brotherhood(S01E11) Matthew 22:10: The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests.

A big Irish wedding, and Freddie Cork finally makes a move, ordering a hit on pain-in-the-ass Michael (Jason Isaacs), after going back and forth every other week over whether they are friends or enemies. The first surprise is Pete, who appears at the wedding all cleaned up -- this, after the last time we saw him, snorting coke outside an AA meeting with Eileen Caffee (Annabeth Gish). Judging from the selection played at the wedding, music stopped developing around 1983. (Spoiler -- a big one -- after the jump.)
