18 TV Friendships That Are More Toxic Than You Realized
The Liars, Pretty Little Liars
The entire point of Pretty Little Liars is that none of the girls on the show realized how toxic their relationships were. In particular, their friendship with Ali was the definition of toxic. Ali put every single one of them down, and put them through years of misery that none of them really deserved.
The show’s genius was in its willingness to put the idea of toxic friendships at the foreground. Even on TV, there are people that we’re just better off without, even if they rely on us in some way. In the end, toxic friendships just aren’t worth it but it takes us a while to figure that out.
