SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen watched Tuesday’s episode, stop reading. Also, look at your life, look at your choices.

The ‘A’ game is over … for now.

After six seasons of conspiracy theories, ill-fated school dances and age-inappropriate romances, Tuesday night’s Pretty Little Liars finale revealed that Charles DiLaurentis is …

CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray).

Yup, Charles was Alison (Sasha Pieterse) and Jason’s (Drew Van Acker) long-lost brother, who identified as female and transitioned into Charlotte, who later dated her brother Jason (ew ew ew ew ew) and befriended Ali, was framed for Toby’s (Keegan Allen) mom’s murder by Bethany Young and accidentally hit Ali over the head with a rock, gave up the ‘A’ game last season, but then missed playing with her dolls: Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Hanna (Ashley Benson). Honestly, Mrs. D couldn’t just buy CeCe some Barbies instead?

Oh, and CeCe recruited fake kidnapping victim and obvious sketchball Sara (Dre Davis) to be red coat No. 3/the black widow. So Emily clocked her in the face.

The revelation certainly rocked Rosewood, and Twitter went into overdrive. See the best fan reactions to the answer we’ve all been waiting for below.
