* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: [[spoiler: Sara "Shower" Harvey]] We should sympathize with this character for obvious reasons, but instead she is potentially the most loathed character in the entire PLL universe. Why? Six words: "I need to take a shower." Of course "Game Over, Charles" revealed that she wasn't meant to be sympathetic and was EvilAllAlong.

** The main 4 Liars, especially Spencer, have a habit of believing that whoever A is trying to frame for being Ali, [[spoiler: Maya, or Bethany's]] killer or being A is absolutely guilty, and that there is no chance that they could be framed, and yelling at and being very unpleasant and hostile towards them or anyone who thinks they may not be guilty. After [[spoiler: Toby, Jenna, Caleb, Ian, Jason, Garrett, Lucas, Melissa, Byron, Mike, Ezra, Ali, Noel, and less important characters like Leslie]] they would learn to start gathering more evidence before jumping to conclusions. Especially since they keep being framed for different crimes, with Toby and Spencer constantly saying that they don't jump to conclusions for this reason... before jumping to conclusions.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: It can be pretty uncomfortable hearing the Liars continually make jokes about Jenna's blindness, especially given that [[spoiler: they inadvertently caused it]].

*** The [[spoiler: book is published]] in the five years between 6x10 and 6x11, and he apparently suffered no ill will for it.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: The final season went heavy on the fanservice, which led to a resurgence of one of the most popular and enduring fan theories: that Aria [[spoiler:was the ultimate mastermind behind the A scheme, or at least was fated to play an integral role in the A-Team.]] The exploration of this idea in 7B could well be a TakeThatAudience. [[spoiler:While Aria ''does'' end up joining the A-Team as TheMole, her reasons for agreeing are [[DrivenToVillainy sympathetic]] and the awful things she does on A.D.'s orders eat her up inside.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: The disbarred doctor-turned-alcoholic the girls visit in season 7, and his haunting advice about what the human heart craves and returns to in the end.

** Hannah didn't really consider her options when [[spoiler: holding who she thought to be A at gun point.]] not only does she not [[spoiler: shoot her when she started to run away. But when Not A jumped to another building, Hannah still never even considered that a gun is a projectile weapon, and if anything the person in the mask has just taken any chance they had of rushing her off the table.]]

** From the beginning, Spencer and Alison have both been frequently suspected (both in fan theories and by characters in the series) of murdering someone (supposed victims being the person who was buried That Night: Alison, the '''real''' Alison, Courtney Dilaurentis, Sarah Harvey, or Bethany Young and Mona Vanderwaal in season five). Fast forward to season seven, where at this point Alison and Spencer are the only Liars- even when including Mona- who ''haven't'' murdered anyone!

Added DiffLines:

** In "[=If These Dolls Could Talk=]" Alison visits Spencer, and claims that since Alison and Spencer share Jason as a brother, that they're practically sisters, assuring her that "[Spencer] deserves a decent sister." Flash to the final season, where not only have [[spoiler: Spencer and Melissa grown much closer (see the example below),]] but it also turns out that since [[spoiler: Spencer and Alison's respective mothers were twins]] biologically speaking, Spencer and Alison are both [[spoiler: cousins and half-sisters.]]
** In the pilot, Melissa forces Spencer to move out of the barn, not caring about how upset this makes Spencer, who begrudgingly accepts this with only a passive aggressive complaint. In the finale, Melissa once again asks Spencer if she, Melissa, could move into the barn and Spencer back into her room. This time, not only does Spencer assert herself and refuse, but Melissa happily accepts this.

** There's a one-sided example with Aria and [[spoiler: Spencer's twin sister Alex Drake, also known as]] A.D. A.D. goes out of their way to coerce Aria into [[spoiler: becoming an A Team minion,]] tells Aria that "[their] relationship isn't over until [AD] says it's over," ends up [[MurderTheHypotenuse kidnapping Ezra (the day before he was supposed to marry Aria) with the full intention of killing him]], and cuddles up next to a sleeping Aria- while caressing her face and saying that "I think that you and I are going to be the closest of all."
