12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At

We hate to lose out on popcorn, but these guys deserved it.


Pretty Little Liars is full of villains we love to hate and characters who made us rage when they totally crossed the line! They're responsible for some of the most shocking moments in PLL and watching them with a huge bowl of Pop Secret beside us is better than everything. To celebrate these characters and their dastardly deeds, we've rounded up the twelve that we really, really wanted to throw our popcorn at.

1. Detective Darren Wilden

Wilden was the shadiest of shady cops. He always had it in for the Liars during his investigation into Ali's disappearance and seemed to think they were guilty of almost anything and everything. He wasn't afraid to rely on underhand tactics, like pressuring Ashley into sleeping with him in return for keeping quiet about Hanna's shoplifting. Whenever he turned up we always felt the need to boo and hiss.

2. Byron Montgomery

Making your daughter cover up your affair definitely makes you deserving of a whole lot of popcorn to the face. Byron was never going to make ‘Dad of the Year’ after that move, but he really sealed the deal when he got back together with Meredith who then went on to lock Aria in the basement.

3. Jackie Molina

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1004

It was obvious from the moment we met Jackie that she wasn't over Ezra, and she was determined to get between him and Aria. Her opportunity came after A forced Aria to blackmail Jackie over her plagiarized thesis. Jackie hit back by threatening to expose Aria's relationship with Ezra if she ever told anyone about the thesis and if she didn't break up with him. Thankfully, Ezra made it clear that it was Aria and not her that he wanted to be with.

4. Kate Randall

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1005

Kate was the ultimate wicked step-sister. After the incident at the stables, she was determined to make Hanna's life a nightmare. She started by getting Hanna so drunk at her dad's rehearsal dinner that she threw up over her step-mom's wedding dress, then she tried to hit on Caleb at the wedding (which he spectacularly shot down), and, worst of all, she tried to get Hanna expelled by accusing her of sending a topless photo of her around the school -- she deserved a bucket of popcorn over her head for that one!

5. Mona Vanderwaal

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1006

The original A. Her A reveal made us throw our popcorn in the air, as well as at her -- we just did not see it coming. She was supposed to be Hanna's friend yet she did some truly terrible things to her and the rest of the Liars. Then after getting out of Radley, she caused them more torment by joining the A-Team once again -- remember when she made Spencer think Toby was dead? She's certainly come a long way since then but we're never totally sure if we can trust her and whose side she's actually on.

6. Lyndon James

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1007

This guy was seriously menacing. He came to Rosewood as Maya's grieving cousin and formed a friendship with Emily, although it was clear he wanted more from her. When it was finally revealed that he was really Maya's stalker and murderer it was a huge shock moment, and his final showdown with Emily was truly terrifying. His time as a PLL villain may have been brief, but he sure was scary.

7. Ezra Fitz

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1008

Handfuls upon handfuls of popcorn were thrown at Ezra when we found out about his book on Alison's disappearance. He started his relationship with Aria just as a way to find out more about her, Ali, and the rest of the Liars, and he did some pretty shady deeds while he was tracking them all for his research. He may have won Aria's trust again, but it looks like we may need some more popcorn at the ready if he doesn't stop being such a rubbish fiancé. He's broken her heart once before, we don't want to see him do it again.

8. Zack

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1009

He seemed like the man of Ella's dreams but he turned out to be such a sleaze. By hitting on Hanna, he not only broke poor Ella's heart but he also jeopardized Hanna's friendship with Aria which was absolutely not okay. When he got that epic punch from Caleb, we threw our popcorn in celebration. Goodbye and good riddance Zack.

9. Archer Dunhill

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1010

Alison's former husband has to be one of PLL's baddest of the bad. After getting her to fall in love with him, he then convinced her she was losing her mind and had her commited to Welby. His true colors were really revealed when he tormented her while she was institutionalized -- what he did was just evil. There is no amount of popcorn we could throw that would make up for his dirty deeds.

10. Noel Kahn

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1011

Noel was handsome, charming, and down right devious. We can probably all admit that we had a little crush on Noel when we first met him, but those feelings disappeared when we realized how ugly he was underneath. He taunted and threatened the Liars throughout high school before going on to work for A in the Dollhouse. His hatred for them ran deep and, before his own grizzly death, it was clear he was willing - and capable - to go as far as killing them to get his revenge.

11. Jenna Marshall

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1012

Jenna has given us plenty of reasons to throw popcorn at her but the biggest one is that we just can't work out what her end game is! She's been involved in some pretty dark dealings and is nearly always around when something shady is going on, but the Season 7A finale seemed to confirm that she isn't A.D., so what has she got to do with everything? We seriously need to find out what her deal is before the end of Season 7B.

12. Peter Hastings

Pretty Little Liars - 12 Pretty Little Liars Characters We All Threw Our Popcorn At - 1013

This guy has almost as many secrets as the Liars. From the very beginning he's been keeping things from Spencer. He hid the fact that Jason was her half-brother and that he thought she might have killed Alison, then he made Melissa stay quiet about killing Bethany. And now in Season 7B, we've learned of two other HUGE secrets he's been holding onto -- he knew about Charlotte before the Dollhouse AND he knew Mary killed Jessica DiLaurentis! Spencer has had plenty of her own issues with secrets, but it's not like she had the best role model.
