It is a bittersweet waiting period for fans looking forward to the premiere of Pretty Little Liars season 7B. A recent revelation about the show’s future could make the wait even more painful.
Series executive producer Oliver Goldstick delivered the bad news. Speaking to TV Line, he confirmed that the remaining episodes will feature a character death. He didn’t reveal a name nor a definite number, but that only makes fans’ anticipation more agonizing.
Goldstick told the source, “What would Pretty Little Liars be without death? What do you think is in that big, black box on the table [in promos]? A lizard? If [you’re expecting death], you won’t be disappointed. Somebody’s gotta go.”
In mentioning the black box in the promos, the show exec could be hinting at another sick warning from A/Uber A. Based on Pretty Little Liars history, A could push the limits in terms of terrorizing the girls. In this case, the box may contain another character’s severed body parts.
If this is the case, there is at least a silver lining–all the liars are present when they receive the box. Hence, the dead character isn’t one of them. Nonetheless, Goldstick never said that there’s only one death so no one is really safe.
Pretty Little Liars Season 7B and Potential Deaths
At this point, it’s anyone guess on who will bite the dust before the show wraps up. When season 7A ended, Spencer and Toby’s lives were in danger. However, the promos showed that Spencer will recover eventually.
Where does that leave Toby? He was on his way to start a new life with Yvonne outside of Rosewood. Fate had other ideas though because just before the couple passed the town boundary, their car crashed.
It is easy to assume it was an accident. However, it is possible that A really prevented the young cop from skipping town.
One Crazy Theory for Pretty Little Liars Season 7B
One may question as to why A would target Toby. Given Toby’s tendency to help the girls in fighting their masked foe, A should be pleased that he is leaving.
Nevertheless, there is a theory that would explain why A would try to hurt Toby. The theory depends on the possibility that Mary Drake is indeed A. Since she revealed in the mid-season finale that she is Spencer’s mother, Mary could have attacked Toby for Spencer’s sake.
It appears that Toby remains as Spencer’s one great love even with Yvonne in the picture. Hence, if Mary Drake saw how Toby’s departure would have hurt Spencer, she would do something about it.
