***WARNING: Spoilers For Pretty Little Liars Ahead***
We did NOT see that coming!
Pretty Little Liars may have utilized a 5-year time jump in an effort to age its cast, but the show itself also grew up when ABC Family officially switched over to Freeform.
Without the "family" aspects of the network holding it back, the mystery drama is now finally able to be the bloody mess it's always dreamt of being… and that was never as evident as it was during Tuesday night's Season 7 Episode 3 where the finicky show finally decided to off a main character…

While The Talented Mr. Rollins was seemingly a filler episode, a whole lot happened as the hour detailed Ali's (Sasha Pieterse) escape from
Radley Welby and, simultaneously, her husband/captor Elliott (Huw Collins).
Elsewhere, Spencer (Troian Bellisario) tried to win back Caleb (Tyler Blackburn), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Aria (Lucy Hale) tried to learn more about Elliott's relationship with Charlotte (Vanessa Ray), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) tried her hand at bartending… because her BFF/OTP totally wasn't at risk of dying or anything.
Those plot points seemed a little by-the-books, but we were totally caught off by Toby (Keegan Allen) and Yvonne's (Kara Royster) surprise engagement!
Cute! (It'll never last…)

Basically, despite the overbearing romantic subplots, it all came down to a dramatic car chase where Hanna accidentally hit and killed one of the show's more handsome villains…
His dead face simply staring at Hanna through her windshield sure will haunt us…
More of this please, PLL!
What did U think of Pretty Little Liars' bloodiest death yet??
