    I was so disappointed with the series finale that aired last night. After watching it I can only imagine that ABC Family is continuing in the recent tradition of canceling shows with little notice to the producers (a la The 4400) resulting in a series finale that was at best incomplete. Not only did the episode leave details from the current story arc unfinished, but even parts of the episode itself didn’t seem to be tied together. This trend shows little appreciation for a show’s fans and their loyalty.
