Why The Season 7 Premiere Of 'Pretty Little Liars' Blew Our Minds

To all of the die-hard "Pretty Little Liars" fans out there, the time has come. A new season has begun, and more twists and turns in the Liars' lives will surely unfold before our eyes. If you're like me, you've been dying for this moment to finally come. We all have been on the edge of our seats crying, "Where's Hanna?" and "Is she dead?" We've been worrying about Allison's health and how she's going to make it. We've been completely frustrated with all of the romantic situations ever since the five-year fast-forward, that threw us for a loop last season, changed everything, and we have been waiting for a resolution. Worst of all, we still want to know who killed Charlotte and who is antagonizing the Liars once again.

The Season 7 premiere definitely surprised us. There were several unexpected events and jaw-dropping moments. Here's why the Season 7 premiere of "Pretty Little Liars" blew our minds (spoiler alert!):

1. When Hanna was dead but not actually dead

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F27%2F636026061864606970-1296662852_hanna%2520was%2520dead%2520via%2520happyprettlylittleliars%2520day%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=756&h=2c8117b98f239f45a62d7ae9023eb0f95a4385ba90605d7442608b39360b4ded&size=980x&c=3210312138 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F27%252F636026061864606970-1296662852_hanna%252520was%252520dead%252520via%252520happyprettlylittleliars%252520day%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D756%26h%3D2c8117b98f239f45a62d7ae9023eb0f95a4385ba90605d7442608b39360b4ded%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3210312138%22%7D" expand=1]

So this was probably the most frustrating part of the entire episode. Seeing Hanna hanging, we were probably thinking, "She can't actually be dead, she's Hanna!" Then, we see Caleb's reaction and our hearts break. He pulls her down and ... it's a doll?! Seriously?

2. When Alison went nuts

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F6360233717813642591757657434_ali%2520goes%2520insane%2520via%2520happyprettylittleliarsday%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=331&h=1dcc52362eab466147871829393774cab60a69e3669c944b7446863084cb9c33&size=980x&c=394038337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F6360233717813642591757657434_ali%252520goes%252520insane%252520via%252520happyprettylittleliarsday%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D331%26h%3D1dcc52362eab466147871829393774cab60a69e3669c944b7446863084cb9c33%26size%3D980x%26c%3D394038337%22%7D" expand=1]

There may be a sort of love/hate relationship between the "Pretty Little Liars" audience and Alison DiLaurentis, but to see her in such bad shape really broke our hearts, while at the same time making us even more terrified of her.

3. When we could have sworn Jessica DiLaurentis was somehow not dead

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F636023374846004498-1063121025_wait%2520shes%2520alive%2520via%2520dilaurnts%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=128&h=77539f4a544c03a20d39e1a8ab05a0410a28372dd78b537aede7bf0e4681700d&size=980x&c=1870749174 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F636023374846004498-1063121025_wait%252520shes%252520alive%252520via%252520dilaurnts%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D128%26h%3D77539f4a544c03a20d39e1a8ab05a0410a28372dd78b537aede7bf0e4681700d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1870749174%22%7D" expand=1]

We're right there with you, Emily. It was unreal to see Mary Drake walking around town looking just like Mrs. D. And if that wasn't enough...

4. When Mary Drake seriously gave us the creeps

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F636023377795661857-1550387065_creepy%2520via%2520happyprettlylittleliarsday.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=241&h=746c6c42629631c58e20c24d1aa7c5c9427c4384b82549c8df973016af611a91&size=980x&c=2178675600 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F636023377795661857-1550387065_creepy%252520via%252520happyprettlylittleliarsday.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D241%26h%3D746c6c42629631c58e20c24d1aa7c5c9427c4384b82549c8df973016af611a91%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2178675600%22%7D" expand=1]

Again, well said, Emily! Her if her demeanor isn't creepy enough, let us not forget Mary Drake's eerie past in Radley and with Charlotte and now with Rollins. Her conversation with Spencer sent us over the edge:

5. When we watched Hanna being tortured

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F6360233805580692731337532250_hanna%2520tortured%2520via%2520liarsforlife18%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=674&h=b568182d50a864fa4b742c668789e7273949e5ccaca90fb8b57fd2da41cf7e0a&size=980x&c=987608973 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F6360233805580692731337532250_hanna%252520tortured%252520via%252520liarsforlife18%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D674%26h%3Db568182d50a864fa4b742c668789e7273949e5ccaca90fb8b57fd2da41cf7e0a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D987608973%22%7D" expand=1]

Because thinking Hanna was dead at the beginning wasn't enough, let's throw into the mix clips of her being locked up and tortured.

6. When our hearts were crying for Ezria

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F6360233821700934791131722635_ezria%2520via%2520ianspainharding%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=307&h=59e84131430e315c708e09e7ceb508d1347a076f9013920d07b52d29b930f816&size=980x&c=3953342536 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F6360233821700934791131722635_ezria%252520via%252520ianspainharding%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D307%26h%3D59e84131430e315c708e09e7ceb508d1347a076f9013920d07b52d29b930f816%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3953342536%22%7D" expand=1]

Ezra and Aria's relationship has always been extremely difficult. From the very beginning theirs has been a story of forbidden love. In the midst of all this chaos, including Aria's sticky relationship back home, Ezria must come to terms with what Ezria even is anymore.

7. When Hanna was "visited" by Spencer

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F6360233840584398231597167263_hanna%2520and%2520spencer%2520via%2520dilaurnts%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=652&h=97e072a7990320027a088e7829627969b88531dc2140287775b41c73408aa3cd&size=980x&c=1391335082 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F6360233840584398231597167263_hanna%252520and%252520spencer%252520via%252520dilaurnts%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D652%26h%3D97e072a7990320027a088e7829627969b88531dc2140287775b41c73408aa3cd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1391335082%22%7D" expand=1]

Visions and dreams aren't really new to "Pretty Little Liars," but to see Hanna envision Spencer there with her, comforting her, was surprising, especially considering the Caleb drama that took place last episode. However, it was heartwarming to watch their moment together.

8. When Emily found the red coat, and Caleb made a bold move

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F24%2F636023385816410956559035907_reaction%2520to%2520calebs%2520bold%2520move%2520via%2520ariaseyebrows%2520Tumblr.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=674&h=8bfa4242227a05e9f8add55b74608b6615e795c160d899382c16e47d5e8c1d2f&size=980x&c=1024895923 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F24%252F636023385816410956559035907_reaction%252520to%252520calebs%252520bold%252520move%252520via%252520ariaseyebrows%252520Tumblr.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D674%26h%3D8bfa4242227a05e9f8add55b74608b6615e795c160d899382c16e47d5e8c1d2f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1024895923%22%7D" expand=1]

The ending of this episode was very shocking, however it should surprise us that Caleb is willing to do anything for his Hanna, if it means confronting this "A," or any "A" that has ever been. Throughout the episode he was determined to do everything in his power for Hanna, even to the point of neglecting his relationship with Spencer. It will be interesting to see where this takes us in future episodes. All in all, this was an incredibly excited season premiere and we are all waiting for more to come!

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
