‘Pretty Little Liars’ Creator Breaks Down Major ‘A’ Reveal in Series Finale (Spoilers)

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the “Pretty Little Liars” series finale, which aired June 27 on Freeform.

After seven seasons of whodunnit mystery, cliffhangers, and torment by “A,” the Liars finally found out the true identity of Rosewood’s villain … Spencer (Troian Bellisario) has a twin!

The identical twin with a British accent is named Alex Drake — A.D., get it? — and is Mary Drake’s (Andrea Parker) other daughter, who was sold as an infant upon birth so that Mary Drake could pay her way out of the Radley Sanitarium mental institution. Mary Drake sent her to a wealthy family in London, thinking she would have a great life, but instead, Alex ended up at an orphanage and never had a real family. Her lack of family, in comparison to Spencer’s seemingly “perfect” life, is what prompted her to take down the Liars.

'Pretty Little Liars': Who Is A.D.? Here's a Theory

For seven seasons, Pretty Little Liars viewers have followed the yellow brick road that will hopefully lead to revealing the identity of "A.D." With a plethora of mysterious characters, one suspect who started the story may likely be the one to finish it.

While the series has already featured a twin reveal between Mary Drake and Jessica Dilaurentis (Andrea Parker), there have been hints that the sisters weren’t the only Rosewood twins...

19 Times Twins Got Too Twisted for TV

  • TVfanatic
Twisted twins and doppelgangers. Some engage in incest, others just have horrible, even life-threatening relationships.

For some reason, the shows with twins played by the same actor or actress, in this case Alexandra Chando of The Lying Game, or Sarah Michelle Gellar of Ringer, don't seem to last very long.

But these relationships are always so juicy and dark because even compared to siblings, there's just a certain bond between twins that is undeniable and leads to much deeper rifts in their family fabric.

Seems like daytime soaps have an uncanny habit of revealing a shocking doppelganger.

Below, here are some of our favorite dark, deep, twisty, and puzzling twin relationships.
