Oh, Mother! Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Series Premiere Recap:

Leaving Tabby and Imogen (the liars introduced thus far) aside, we meet Mouse (Malia Pyles) and Noa (Maia Reficco). Mouse is an outcast who appears to be interested in joining the LGBTQ+ group at school but hasn't decided yet. Meanwhile, Noa has just returned from juvie and is constantly monitored via an ankle bracelet. Noa is even barred from attending the prom, which she had planned to attend with her boyfriend Shawn (Alex Aiono). Noa receives a message from an unknown number saying, "don't do the crime if you can't do the time," after the lovebirds decide to stay at her place instead of attending the school event. She questions the sender of the text message about their identity but is unable to obtain a concrete response.

Imogen moves into Tabby's (Chandler Kinney) house now that her mother is no longer alive. Tabby and her mother Sidney (Sharon Leal) are chatting in the kitchen as she prepares to leave for school. It's worth noting that Sidney was one of Davie's friends at the 1999 party, so she could be one of the possible suspects behind the new "A." That is even hinted at when she tells Imogen that when they were teenagers, she would have done anything for her mother. Tabby and Imogen arrive at school and discover that it is Spirit Week. As they enter the building, they come across Karen, who is running for prom queen. The mean girl pretends to be sympathetic toward Imogen, but that quickly changes when she embraces her and declares that no one wants her "pregnant, tragic ass" roaming around. This is just a taste of how vindictive the character can be.

Fast-forward 22 years later, one of the girls from the 1999 party, Davie (Carly Pope), has her own daughter, Imogen (Bailey Madison). The two are talking at the dining room table when they are interrupted by a knock on the door from Karen (Mallory Betchel), a popular mean girl who attends the same high school as them. Although the teenagers were once friends, they haven't spoken since Karen caught Imogen kissing her boyfriend. Before they go up the stairs so Karen can retrieve all of her belongings from her former friend's bedroom, she hands Davie a letter she found in front of the house. It contains a poster from the 1999 party where Davie witnessed Angela's suicide. A message is written on the back of the poster, "Gone but never forgotten You can't ignore the past indefinitely. The countdown has begun." Following this, Karen is sorting through her clothes in Imogen's wardrobe, but the two begin to fight, and she stops returning her belongings. She notices a trail of water coming from the bathroom down the hall as she opens the door to leave. Imogen follows her, and when they open the bathroom door, they find Davie inside a bloody bathtub.

The first episode, "Spirit Week," begins at a 1999 New Year's Eve party, where we see a group of friends ignoring Angela Waters' cries for help (Gabriella Pizzolo). Everyone is preparing for the final countdown before the year 2000 as they dance to loud music in their party dresses, but things suddenly quiet down when Angela appears on the balcony and commits suicide. Everyone on the scene is shocked, especially the friend group who had just dissed the girl a few minutes before.

"Do you have a secret that you can keep?" Oh, how nostalgic it is to hear the Pretty Little Liars intro, which is now creepier than ever. The first three episodes of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin have just been released, and the pilot introduces us to the new liars in town through a slasher aesthetic. The original series' secrets, sudden deaths, and suspenseful text messages are all present in the spin-off, which is directed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and Lindsay Calhoon Bring. This means there's a lot to unpack here, but don't worry, we've got you covered.
