The moms on Pretty Little Liars have always had a special place on the show but after season six, episode nine: “Last Dance,” fans called for a spin-off or at least a conclusion of their adventure. The girls go on many adventures and that episode we discovered the moms weren’t so different. We finally understood where their daughters got it from.
Sure these ladies’ adventure may have been spurred on by red wine, but it was also spurred on by secrets and the need for answers. Everything is so intertwined and the mothers just wanted to get answers for their daughters and for themselves.
They went to find answers and ended up being locked up themselves. It was like watching the girls when they are all grown up. They were finding clues and jumping to conclusions.
I was very excited when I saw Holly Marie Combs (Ella Montgomery) was one of the mothers, but Ella was not the mother I found liking the most. Maybe it’s because Hanna’s mom Ashley (Laura Leighton) had more of a storyline than Ella, but I just always loved how fierce Ashley was.
Ella may have gotten stung by bees, but I think Ashley got the worst of ‘A”s wrath. She was framed for murder after all.
There isn’t anything Ashley wouldn’t do to protect her daughter, the other mothers may say that too, but when it comes to Ashley, she really does do anything to protect Hanna.
If you think Hanna has put her mom through the ringer with some stupid choices, just think about Ella with Aria. Ella had to learn that her colleague was dating her daughter.
Veronica (Lesley Fera) dealt with Spencer’s drug addiction and a stint in Radley. I think Pam (Nia Peeples) had the least to deal with with Emily.
These moms are as strong as their daughters, if not a little blind of what’s going on with ‘A’, but if they knew what was going on, where would all the fun be?
Sometimes the moms get neglected in the storyline, but Veronica got celebrated when she won her election.
There have been so many great moments with each of the moms. They have given their girls so much wisdom and learned from the girls as well.
Only one more week till the liars are back and trying to save Hanna. I don’t even want to think about what Ashley will be going through. However PLL ends, the moms deserve a good send off.
