S07 Episode 5

7 Sep

Welcome to episode 5 of Pretty Little Liars season 7.

We open with Aria standing on Alison’s lawn holding a casserole, its funny and somehow Aria reminds me of Wednesday Adams in her dark outfit.  It is a surreal scene for certain.  Alison drives up with Mary Drake at the wheel she seems as surprised as Aria, whose mouth drops open. Mary insists that Alison needs her rest and cannot talk for like two minutes, but Alison is able to get away with a long good bye to Aria.  Alison insists to Aria that its okay she watching Mary like a hawk, basically.

epi 5 aria outside

What I liked about this scene with Aria and Alison is they finally seemed to be on the same page against a common enemy.  Alison has caused so much drama its hard to see her as a victim sometimes.  My favorite line from her was “she is just going to keep acting like a demented den mother,” in her reference to Mary who is watching them as they speak.  That was kind slick from Alison.    Cue Creepy theme song.

Mary explains to Alison that she should have never been involved with Elliot even though he had convinced Mary, so she says not taking any of the blame, that Alison should suffer because Charlotte had died.  It seems Alison is falling for the confession, I imagine her being a twin of her mother has something to do with it.

epi 5 alison

AT Lucas’ where Emily is crashing out, she is with Sparkle (? I can’t remember the blondes name so I will just use what comes to mind).  They are about to share a kiss when Em gets a text she then suddenly has to leave for a test.  Is Emily even in school, I thought she quit?  Hmmm I think its a lie we will see momentarily.

epi 5 em and sparkle

Ezra returns home to find Aria keeping secrets again, even though he immediately comes clean by telling her he ended up going to Nicole’s parents to tell them about Aria.  She takes this moment to lie about nothing having happened while he was away.  Now he is unaware there is a new threat in their lives, way to go Aria.

epi 5 aria and ezria

Lookee see Emily was late for a test, we watch as the teacher pulls the curtain down over the door effectively not letting her in the room.  I hope it wasn’t too important, since she stayed up all night chatting with Serena.  LOL

epi 5 em late to class

Filler scene warning: Spencer shows up to meet Hanna while all the cops are mulling around wondering why an abandoned car was found for the person they are seeking the fake Elliot Rollins aka Archer.   They get a text from Aria about some burner phone information.

We learn from the phone that Elliot/Archer knew that Alison didn’t kill Charlotte so they have no idea why he took her from the hospital in the middle of the night.  Alison shows up and all together they figure out that he also had a burner apartment and nothing he told her about himself was true.  Alison confesses, “With all the lies I told you think I would have seen him from a mile away.”  She seems sad. No one disagrees with her.

Alison is at the ATM to withdraw money only to find they are all FROZEN do to insufficient funds.  Hmmm looks like Lying Elliot had another scheme going on.  Seems like if you are from no where you can only go up!

epi 5 frozen funds

Aria calls Emily when she answers a call from Nicole that comes through on Ezra’s phone.  the idea is to keep him from being sadder but in reality it might not be so simple I imagine the picture of them looking happy on the screen when the phone rang didn’t help her feelings about it.

epi 5 nicole on phone

While Emily is day drinking, oh wait, she actually practicing a recipe for being a bartender,  hmm is that the class then?  She gets a text about her exam then another text from A. D. letting her know she is the reason she gets another shot at the test.  It says “Thank me later ungrateful B.” on it. Okay my guess is this is Sarah Harvey but I am not even sure why I think that all of a sudden.

Aria comes over to help Emily figure out her mystery then suggests day drinking, notice the theme of the episode emerges.   Lets get a glass ladies settle down to figure out this big ole riddle.  Ha ha  Emily decides to write back to see that she has to lay low.  Her return message is something about the usual spot, which confuses me Emily doesn’t know who it is, they are using Archer’s phone so they are pretending to be him, how is that related to the good deed of a test retake.  Maybe because they believe its the same person?

epi 5 text

Em and Aria are racing off to the burner house, yes the random name that Emily gave it,  which they believe to be where the mystery person wants to meet Archer but on the way out the run into Sabrina, ahhh that is her name, got it, maybe. Sabrina simply wants to check on Em since she ran out earlier in the day and Em lies to her about the test. Sabrina looks confused of course as she sees Em get in the car with barely a word to her after their good night chatting together.  You know I think Emily believes her little smirk makes girls weak in the knees or something lol.

epi 5 cowboy sabrina

At the DeLaurentis house Alison is tearing up the room looking for her money or something like information on where Elliot has put it away.  She is interrupted by Mary who is all concern and kindness. Yes I think she is stone cold crazy woman.  Alison insists she can’t sleep in that room before she storms out.

Spencer goes to see Toby at the station and verifies that Caleb is hanging out with him while he does some thinking.  Toby claims Caleb as his brother/friend, so cute.  Detective Marco Fury walks in to Toby’s office and Spencer has to pretend to not know him since it would be more than inappropriate and extra awkward with Toby.

Over at the so named Burner apartment, Emily and Aria have a chance to go inside thanks to Aria giving the manager twelve dollars and her fake phone number which is a Chinese restaurant.  For some odd reason they decide to pull down the murphy bed, though how they know the name I will wonder about for this episode seeing as neither of them would have reason to know.  So the idea of them pulling down a dirty old bed in this dirty apartment makes no sense, no more than a fake head falling out of it and pictures of the dead policeman being on the wall.  All very None Sensical.  😦

epi 5 aria and em

Arias short dress makes her legs look extra long.  ^^^

I believe they needed a lot of super glue and paper scissors to but this odd collection of facts together to make a final episode.

In a filler scene, we see Jenna meet up with Sarah Harvey for the first time.  They share a “Sour Girl” drink, whatever that means. Perhaps is a play on words since they are both a bit sour now.

Between other scenes we find Emily and Aria touching all sorts of unmentionables at Archie’s house, digging in this furniture and down his drain LOL. They find passports, money, secret reading material.  Yikes he isn’t messy like they thought he is hiding his evidence.  Toby shows up and can only shake his head as he gets them out of there before Fury arrives.

Not sure exactly what was said while Mary talks to Alison, it suddenly became noisy where I am writing I listened twice but never quite got it.  I know its about some song Alison’s mother used to sing as kids with Mary, about a bird and trusting people.

Alison gets a call from Fury to come see him about Archer.  She finds out the trail the fake information from the girls has been changed by someone else.  Fury seems to believe that Archer is on the run and that he had targeted Alison for her money. Alison looks sick not because of what Fury has seed but because the plan is unraveling.

At the Brew, Emily asks Sparkle out again, wait Serena, Sabrina?  I still can’t remember her name.  Either way Emily is grabbing some coffee at the counter and notices Sarah with Jenna.  Sarah smiles, which to me indicates she is working for the girls just baiting Jenna but not sure if that really comes out in the wash.  They stop and say hello to her before leaving, Jenna has to let to make Emily aware  that she knows she is going back to school or aka Jenna is watching no matter what she has got her good eye on them.

epi 5 em with sparkle

Its getting near the end of the episode and they are spinning their wheels.  Hanna’s is freaking out that the trail for Archer they created has been infiltrated.  Aria has to run off to meet Ezra.  Alison thinks its her fault for baiting Jenna earlier that things might be falling apart.  Em seems the most calm.

We get a last scene of Spencer missing Caleb at the location they are sharing, not sure a hotel/someone’s house or her house?

Then we see a fire hazard at Ezra’s apartment as he has lit all the candles in a five mile radius to ask Aria to marry him with.  She doesn’t look very excited about it but we know she feels guilty after picking up that call from Nicole that he doesn’t know about yet. She does not reply.

epi ezra

At the Radley Noelle Con, joins Sarah and Jenna for a drink, I can only imagine what this unholy alliance is all about.

epi 5 sara with jenna


epi 5 noelle

Wow what an interesting ride and at the end we have Noel returned.

PLL S07 Epi 4 Dead Man thy name is Archer

30 Aug

Hi again, and lucky me I have a chance to get another review done, that will be two in two days I am on a roll.  Let’s get started with those Pretty Little Liars the final season (7) episode.

Okay so I see what happened in the beginning of the last episode it was a few minutes later basically the same way they are starting this one off.  The girls are digging a grave, which if you look back over the series they do quite often.  I did a quick search hoping someone was a curious as myself but to know avail.  I did find some odd topics that have nothing to do with this episode.

aria and em epi 4

Emily, Spencer and Aria are doing the grave digging while Hanna is in shock in the car since she did the actual crashing into Elliot with the car and Alison is in shock on the ground having seen her husband/psycho doctor killed.

hanna shock epi 4

Hanna’s shock wears off first as she comes to help dig, Aria doesn’t know why they couldn’t go to the police to tell the truth.  Lots of conversation happening at once, something about how to get Alison back to the hospital, also what version of the truth would they tell the police and why didn’t Hanna know which peddle to push to not run over Elliot, low blow Spencer, Yikes.  Finally Alison comes over to the digging area, squats on the ground and reaches in to get Elliot’s bag, “here you will need this.” ha ha at least she is thinking.  Cue creepy music, round one is done.

In the car, on the way to make it look like Elliot has run off of his own free will.  They of course start turning on each other like usual, trying to get there story straight gets complicated, because they fear they will forget something.

Meanwhile Toby has gone from the trailer to the police station to do more research.  He gets an annoying message from Yvonne who he obviously didn’t tell he was leaving.  He lets her know its going to be a long night.

toby working late epi 4

After all the digging they go to Spencer’s place to clean up, but after Emily leaves to go to work Caleb arrives.  Spencer refuses to let him in since Hanna is still there and things are fuzzy with all of them right now.  The whole Caleb kissed Hanna for ole time sakes thing is stupid but they are still trying to squeeze in some Spaleb love.  Caleb stays at the door long enough to share a memory with Spencer from the past, at first she tries to get him to leave for Hanna’s sake then she gives in as he describes it so sweetly; the talking, the firsnight with him at the movie etc…  Seriously I can’t see the Caleb we know in any of what he was saying, Can You?  Caleb the computer geek?  Caleb that loved Hanna?  Not the same Caleb.  Finally he does leave Spencer in tears at the door, thought its still closed.  Hanna suggest that Spencer go after Caleb but she just tells her to not say anything.

hanna spencer talk caleb epi 4

At the Welby, Aria is trying to get Alison in without being seen.  Alison tells her to check admissions but when Aria turns around Alison is gone.  WTH?  What is the purpose of this yet again, another filler scene?

Spencer goes to the Radley to verify what she is supposed to do as far as the alibi for where she was when Elliot disappeared.  In reality, she starts drinking before Emily goes off to do her part.  Spencer is in a bit of a foul mood, I think Emily should have paid more attention to that but you know hindsight is 20/20.

em spencer epi 4 bar

Over at the Welby, Aria finds Alison hiding in a stairwell afraid to go back to her room.  Aria promises that she will return for her but Alison has to do her part to help protect everyone else Aria insistsl

At the Radley, some handsome older guy sends Spencer a drink.  Can anyone tell me why handsome younger men like say Fritz don’t flirt with the girls, its instead old guys that look way older than them, kinda creepy, like someone has a Lolita fetish, hmm.  Oh and by the way until this moment I didn’t know what the book was about, disgusting.  Makes me want to spit.

Moving on, Aria finally goes in to put Alison back the way she was before she left the hosptital.  Aria asks her friend the 6000 dollar question, ” did you kill Charlotte?”  Alison explains and we see in flashbacks of how she followed Charlotte, they argued but she left her alive when she went home.  She did however hear noises on her way out of the church.  Aria seems satisfied with the story but she still has to put the muzzle on her and then straps on her feet too.

flirting with spencer epi 4

At the Radley the older man comes over to talk to Spencer. After he gets her drink order straight he asks what she was doing that very night.  “Burying a Body,” Spencer replies with a straight face, he laughs thinking its a joke.

Hanna is with Aria as they go to finish cleaning the crime scene, while they walk they talk about Alison and how she has changed.  Then they notice the car is missing from earlier.

hanna aria epi 4

At the Radley, Spencer gets the notice that she is up and Aria is done but instead decides to get dirty in the elevator with the guy she has been flirting and drinking with.  In the elevator she gets him all worked up and then changes her mind.  I guess they don’t know at times that is the best way to get hurt.

Back looking for the car, they realize the obvious, that someone else knew what happened that night, the car didn’t drive itself away after all.

Spencer calls Emily to tell her that she can’t do her part because she can’t even drive, since she is obviously drunk.

Of course minutes later the car drives up with Mona at the wheel already with her story of having paid attention after he pal, Hanna Banana got kidnapped and cow poked in her underwear. She goes on to tell them basically she had taken the car to have the window repaired and it would have been a bone headed move to try to burn it liked they had planned.

Emily brings Spencer back to Lucas’ I guess since I don’t think she has a place and last I recall she was staying with Hanna at Lucas’ loft.  They wine and moan about how their lives have gone to hell since the beginning with A and now even more with AD.

Em Spencer at house epi 4

The next day they all have brunch at the Radley including Mona but excluding Alison who is still at the Welby hospital.  By the way, could they have chosen a more obvious name than to name it after Marcus Welby, an old medical drama tv show from the late sixties. They spend the first few minutes arguing of course, Aria wants to know if they should be seen by the cameras that don’t record sound, Hanna wants to know about the best way to get the burner phone that Mona insists exist.  They hear a familiar sound, the tapping of a cane on the floor like the noise that Jenna makes when she is around.

Jenna walks up blah blah blah, I see you all though I am supposedly blind, makes veiled threats about seeing Alison, even though I don’t think they were ever real friends.  She then taps off.  No idea why they all seem so afraid of the blind girl, oh WAIT they blinded her.

This is around the time I noticed something that Jenna is also wearing tasseled jewelry.  Hang in with me now.  They do this often on PLL they put some fashion item on the characters that is the same in an episode.

tassel necklace jenna epi. 4

Jenna’s Tassels Necklace is hard to see because she stood with her hand over her neck area when talking then walked away its only seen when she walks up.

tassel earrings mona epi 4

Mona’s tassels are most obvious because they are light against her dark features.  I notice them first.

hanna tassel flower earring epi 4

Hanna’s shop up a bit later in the show but were a bit harder to see because the gold almost blended with her hair, they are flowers at the top but have the tassel shape and are gold chain drops.

I also think Area has some burgundy ones but don’t recall seeing them clearly.

Anyway moving on…..

They speculate about why Jenna is in town then Spencer goes for more orange juice followed by Hanna who advises her to go see Caleb.  There are worse things than not doing what you really want to do, the girls will give over her not being there for them for one day, basically, Hanna advises.

Jenna shows up at the station looking for Toby who isn’t excited to see her and not that interested in a family reunion.  She insists that she is eager to be around him as he gets ready to be married, not creepy at all from the person who basically raped him a few years ago.

Hanna tells Mona that she isn’t sure she had the peddles confused the night before or if she really just wanted to hit Elliot.  She is not sure, although I think she is very sure.  After her confession she follows with a whole new reveal that is the one that is about her and Jordan, but seconds later she realized her bracelet is missing.  Hanna thinks she might have had it last in Rollins car. She could have been a bit more upset about this, it was very nonchalante.  Mona insists they will get to the bracelet.

Why do they trust Mona, the girl is broken, she has more personalities than most people have underwear.  She seems nice and helpful one minute then she is back on the A team why can’t Hanna see that?  I guess its just old habits, we all have them.

The next morning at the hospital they arrive to find a lot of people including the police. Toby sees them and pulls them over and ask to gather the others they have to talk.  No he doesn’t actually say that I just figure it out since they all meet up afterward, whoa, what was that? LOL

Spencer goes to find Caleb and he has gone off leaving only a note for her.   Odd since she just told him she needed some time, I swear people are so freaking impatient, in tv land and by relation in the real world too.

All together except for Hanna, they are told by Toby the truth that Elliot was a fraud, and now he is missing.  Wait for it, shocker, could they all have looked even a bit more concerned about the missing man who is Alison’t husband, No I don’t think so either.

Hanna is with Mona at Rollins/Elliot/fraudsters car when the find the bracelet but also the burner phone, Yahtzee!! The pick it up when it rings and Jenna is on the other end, she called Elliot by the name of Archer. Jenna, umm can I say Random?  How is she always in on this mystery, cane, sunglasses and all. LOL

burner phone epi 4

Thanks for reading.  Leave comments, I can’t wait to hear from you all!


PLL S07 Episode 3 The Devil She Married

29 Aug

Welcome back to my long delayed review of Season 7 episode 3 of Pretty Little Liars, please forgive thankfully Netflix has the episodes for us to enjoy at least through the summer time.  I honestly thought I had done this review.

So lets begin.

This episode seems to start in the middle of a sentence, you know like we missed something and here we are.  Hanna is looking at a ring in a box, a big shiny engagement ring when she hears Aria she puts it on but hides her hands.  Aria notices only that Hanna had burn marks on her back.  That is some serious A.D.-NESS, leaving physical evidence.  Of course we all know that happened when AD had Hanna locked up in her unmentionables.

Emily then sends out sent out some texts letting everyone know that Alison is worse than she was before and Emily sees Mary arguing with Elliott, that actually happened last week, right how oddd. hmmm.  They meet up to discuss this new turn of events, and get no where really they decide to split up with Spencer separating from the group while Aria remembers the night that Alison married Elliot and wishes she hadn’t married them. Its not like she should have known her smiling friend was unhappy, seems a waste of guilt actually.

epi 3 investigating elliot

Over at the hospital Alison attacks Elliot when he comes in her room.  Despite a really good fight he is able to use a syringe to knock her out again and strap her down to the bed.  In an even more disgusting move he puts a muzzle on her like a dang dog.  I don’t know who thinks up this stuff but it Bat S**t crazy to do this to her in this tv show, very much uncalled for.  :(:( I will not show a picture of this stupidity.

epi 3 alison trying to kill elliot

A filler scene follows with Hanna deciding what happened to her alone was way more traumatic then all of them in the dollhouse and Emily misreading the interaction with her and Sabrina.  Like I said filler scenes.

Over at Toby’s Spencer runs into Yvonne only to find out that she is engaged to Toby and doesn’t want him running off to help Spencer this particular night, especially.  Spencer pretends to be excited but when she turns away she seems very upset.

epi 3 ari yvonne

The girls make contact with Elliot’s superior at the hospital and threaten to sue him if he is aware of Alison’s mistreatment.  When they are taken to her room the find she looks fit as a fiddle and her papers say she is being treated properly.  Emily is of course shocked to hear this as Elliot looks suspiciously at them all.  He is getting away with it at least at this point of the game.

episode 3 the devil

Spencer confronts Toby about something happening with he and Hanna, he said it was just a kiss but when asked to clarify if it meant more he doesn’t reply.  they are interrupted by a call from her brother, Jason DeLaurentis.  I believe she was seeking help for Alison if I recall from last episode.

The group meets up to recap all that has happened including why Jason cannot get Alison out of the hospital right away since he is out of the country.  They decided to meet up at Alison’s house to break into that secret bench by Elliot’s bed, because of course breaking and entering is on their to do list, right.  I mean since Toby isn’t around being the only cop they know, okie dokie.  While looking for a key Emily finds something in Spencer’s bag that she simply takes with her as she goes off to work, suddenly, since she was on the team to go do the B & E, she Now has to go off to work?  Is anyone paying attention on this show?


episode 3 emily takes

Outside Spencer and Hanna discuss Caleb and Jordan while the littlest member of the crew does the actual dirty work inside.  Poor Aria left alone inside while her two buddies bicker over one man, lol. She tries her best to take pictures of everything she finds in the special locked bench by the bed, while outside the girls stall Elliot. He is so cocky in the light of day with his pretty little lies!! Elliot sees Aria as she comes to get in the car from around the back of the house and glares.

After finding a receipt in some of things that Aria was able to get pictures of she and Hanna decide to go see if his family can tell them anything about him, in a round about way, of course.  Hanna isn’t excited to go but we know its because she already broke up with Jordan and hasn’t told anyone.

Then we get another filler scene, where we see Emily at work, she tries to contact Toby by phone then she notices Sabrina has come to sit at at table across the room.

epi 3 em at work

In other news, Aria and Hanna are lost with only a map in the middle of no where with no cell service. I have heard stories, I write sarcastically, of the old days where people used maps for directions, in this case Hanna can’t believe Lucas even has a map LOL!

Okay so Hanna has a B*tch fit on Aria and I am noticing something, not only are her boobs bigger like (boob job) but her lips look plumper too, lol.  Random I know but the little fit didn’t quite seem like it was real, it didn’t hold my attention at all.  Why not just tell her bestie she broke up with Jordan, Aria had just confessed to breaking it off with Liam, Ugh these girls!! This drama for the sake of drama to have more episodes to reach a certain number is not a good thing.

Back at the Radley, asylum turned ritzy hotel/bar.  Can we just discuss that for a moment, how does a person get a permit to make a Loony Bin where many children and people died into  a hotel, a place were people sleep.  Anyone heard of Ghosts??

Moving on, Emily embarrasses herself in front of Sabrina telling her how wonderful of a person she really happens to be, all the while really letting her know she doesn’t understand the art of being subtle but, even though she had a rocky start with the lies last season she can be a better person.  Unexpectantly, Sabrina’s date shows up and asks Emily, who is the actual new bartender, to get her a drink.  Emily cringes as she agrees to get the drink.

Looks like Hanna and Aria landed in Amishland.  Aria suggest talking to the owner in order to get him to be open to questions while Hanna wonders off and finds a little girl playing with dolls.  YES dolls of course this shows is about Dolls!! The little girl, Eliza tells them she knew Charlotte, of course doesn’t every doll playing young girl in fifty miles know charlotte/cece/charles? She tells Aria she got her dolls from Charlotte who used to play with her.  The girl mentions, in an effort to infuse some realism in this show, isn’t suppose to have dolls with faces, because that would be weird HA, it is some Amish thing. Eliza runs off when her father calls and he arrives to tell the girls its time to go. You know its time to go when the one scene with actual help in it has just played but the one person who has nothing to do with anything, shares the secret, moving on.

epi 3 Eliza

epi 3 Amish guy

Emily has a chance to talk to Sabrina again when she makes an excuse to come over saying she wants a drink, but in reality she wants them to start over. It seems the girl with her at lunch was her ex-girlfriend.  Emily agrees to start fresh with her but I don’t know why with all the secrets in her life. Just more filler drama, we know the love of her life is long dead, but she is doing her best I suppose.

As they are leaving the little Amish shop of horrors, Hanna sees the cattle prod that Elliot or AD or whoever does things to people in this show but do not have the NERVE to show their faces used on her. Hanna has flashbacks for a few seconds so she can tell Aria little to nothing about what she went through.  She really just looks like she will cry or throw up or maybe both.

The final count down happens in this scene with Spencer and Caleb.  They go on about how they met, the things they like about each other and how they were falling for each other but for me it never quite clicked with them. This whole thing started when Caleb had fancy clothes, from his rich mom, do you recall?  Spencer says she loves him  and wants to be first with him but she thinks he just likes her.   Like with all of that they both still want to be with other people, OR I just think they belong with others, not sure at this point.  Its early season 7 after all.

epi 3 spencer with caleb chatting

Across town we see Toby and Yvonne (Kara Royster)having their family celebration for their engagement.  I never could see these two together.  Although its interesting they put Toby in this series with to MultiEthnic actresses.  Yes Troian is very multiEthnic too!!

I realize that is neither here nor there but something I noticed. I also noticed even though they had shown Yvonne as some big wig hot shot why wasn’t there a big to do engagement party not a hoe down at the trailer like an outside barbeque.  Unless I am remember things ahead of myself.  It has been a while since I watched the episodes.

episode 3 toby with yvonne

epi 3 celebrate

So Emily arrives at the celebration to give him the papers she had taken from Spencer’s bag.  She apologizes but insists that Alison still needs his help, even if she is the murderer, they still have to find AD.  Toby reluctantly agrees.

Emily goes to Spencer after leaving Toby and they decide the drug Alison is being given is to drive her crazy, it causes among other symptoms, hallucinations. They also figure out the latex Elliot was making was for the masks, the Hanna mask and based on some blue contact lenses the Wildon mask from when Alison thought she saw him last season.

We see Alison waking up with Elliot beside her bed, its sooooo melodramatic he says, “Change of Plans.” Cue dramatic music. Its like some retro momentary hint of another tv show or move maybe a bit film Noir?  No it didn’t work for me how about you?

The girls are suddenly put in the loop as to something happening with Elliot and Alison by a pin drop?  They think its Alison cuing them in on what is going on that very minute.  We see Alison in the car with Elliot, as she pretends to be dozing but I got an idea he knows she is not.  It seems he is still up to no good.

Back at the trailer home of Toby and Yvonne, who is currently wearing a purple short gown even though Toby is working on Alison’s case. Suddenly Yvonne puts on her pouty jealous face that does nothing for her looks. She tries to get him to go inside with a kiss but he blows her off and she returns alone to the trailer.  Toby then finds out that Elliot is not the person he is pretending to be.

epi 3 yvonne pouty face

On the road again we see the girls following the pin drop and Elliot with Alison. Its the final minutes my heart is pounding LOL so exciting.  Elliot hits a bump in the road and Alison takes the opportunity to reach out and hit him.  She jumps from the car and starts running from the direction they had come from.  He chases her and ends up in front of the Liars car, CRASH!  Alison had run off in the other direction. Elliots faces crashes through the windshield, YIKES, ugh.

epi 3 crash

Alison comes back to see him through the windshield Whoa what a final scene, right?

epi 3 alison at car

Quite a gory end to this little mess of an episode.  Not one of my favorites by far with too much happening at times and not enough explanations at others.  Oh and where was Fritz and Mona?   Well have a read and leave some comments lets relive this baby, till next time!!









PLL S07 Episode 2 Secret People

13 Aug

Hi all you Pretty Little Liars Fans is time for another fun fanciful recap from our last season ever of the show.  Let’s get started.

This time we are mesmerized with some thrilling conversation, she wrote sarcastically :),  from Hanna and Mary Drake. It is by the by the most boring exchange of information I can remember on this show, not only does it seem to be in black and white for no good reason other than maybe because it is dark outside.  Anywho, it turns out that Mary who is a family secret of the Delarentis, wasn’t holding Hanna hostage in only her underwear but some other perv who has yet to be found.  Mary just happened to show up to Hanna’s rescue on that dark road in the middle of nowhere.  I have to say that is some kind of coincidence.  Cue theme song.


Back at Spencer’s house, the gang begins to piece together the pieces that they have gathered based on their own preconceived notions and ideas.  I am pointing this out because we always get new formations of ideas, new pieces and new people half the time that are supposed to be the torturer or A or A.D. or whoever the villian happens to be this week. This time its Mary Drake they think despite her Sally Sunshine, ha attitude with picking up Hanna to help her even though she might be the perpetrator because they believe its pay back for Alison killing Charlotte.  Spencer points out that yes Mary was also in Radley, as a thought I remember that time that doctor mentioned a Delarentis being in Radley besides Charlotte and we thought it was Alisons mother obviously we now know it was the secret family member, twin. It’s all speculation of course, but why not run with it.

Caleb at some point gives Hanna back her engagement ring, hmm was it left by the bedside table?  Yikes!  Then Ezra gets the door to find a bunch of funeral looking flowers with a note from A.D., saying thanks for the help glad we are on the same team.  Not much later Caleb and Hanna decided what happened with them was a slip and it was because she always felt safe with him.  Not sure who is fooling who here, but we all know these two belong together.  Who else can deal with Hanna’s foolishness for very long.

In the hallway, Spencer and Emily stop to chat about Hannas wild eyed look after what happened to her its not surprising, they plan to keep an eye on her.  Caleb takes Spencer home minutes later and I remember they are still together at this point of the season,  Oops spoiler for those who have not seen it all. Despite Emily’s urgings Hanna is not in any hurry to call Jordan who knows nothing of the A. D.-Ness of it all lol.

Now Caleb it with Spencer playing double time I think.  He has only hours ago given Hanna the look that said they could totally get back together now he is kissing Spencer trying to get her back into his bed.  Years ago when I first met Caleb I never thought he would be a “playa”.

Sometime in the morning the next day, Emily gets an urgent call from Alison saying she needs help.  I have to confess I am totally obsessed with Emily’s lashes.  Yeah sure they are fake and Shay doesn’t need anything extra to make her Bea – u- ti-ful, but the lashes are to die for LOL. So be warned this season will be peppered with them, just so you know.

s7 e 2 emilys lashes

They distracted me from the urgency of the call but I digress.  AT the hospital they won’t let Emily see Alison per Elliot’s orders and he gives no good reason other than its not in anyone’s best interest, can he be any more VAGUE, NO!

At the Radley 2.0 we see Lucas 2.0 aka Money Bags with Hanna discussing their boring business.  He wants her to be Awesome designer Hanna and blah blah blah I’m-not-good- enough-smart-enough-make-me-feel-better-my-life-is-amazing-but-I-can’t-see-it version of Hanna.  Seriously, how much work does it take to get someone to take MONEY, in the world I live in it don’t take that long!!

Emily goes to Spencer looking for support in finding a way to get in to see Alison.  She suggests using Mary Drake since she is related to Alison.  Spencer is not going for it and turns her down, eye lashes and all.  HMMPH!

Meanwhile Aria is breaking it off with Liam, using the good old, I had no idea how my life was such a mess in Rosewood speech.  We all know its Ezra but she can’t say that to him he already has a fragile ego.

Aria’s tassel earrings are kinda cute, very much her to be trendy.  I have seen so many different tassel versions since I started making my own earrings…but this isn’t about that.


Back at Lucas’, Hanna signs the agreement without reading it that was the first mistake, then we had to endure two minutes of how she met Jordan flashbacks.  He was at the bar being obnoxious by putting his sweaty glass down on the important phone number she stupidly wrote on a napkin. Such a non-exciting meeting by the way, they ate and talk and talk as other came and went, end of flash.

Over at Alison’s house the girls tag team on Elliot’s a** but to no avail he still refuses to let them see her.  He goes to get a call and suddenly A. D. sends a message, “no take backs” she is mine.  You know with all the time and resources I have to wonder how did Charlotte get killed on A. D.’s watch.  What was it the one night she went to get more hoodies? LOL

Anywho, next thing we see is Hanna all dressed in hooker heels sitting at Jordan’s desk wearing trendy orange lipstick.  Wasn’t he in a different state or out of town? I know logic isn’t the strong suit in this show.  She basically is setting herself up to see if she is as hot for Jordan as she is for Caleb, but she tells him she wants to reinact their first meeting, did anyone see that coming? Yep!

How ugly are those pointed hurtin’ looking shoes.  There is a good reason her feet are ono the desk.  It is the only way to wear them, feet up. Ugh!

For the second time in the episode, Emily asks Spencer to help her get Mary Drake to go see Alison, she is more worried after the way Elliot behaved as though them seeing her would be so entirely harmful.  Spencer is considering it now, you can tell by the look in her eyes,  maybe she and Mary could swap stories about that creepy baby’s area.   I think Emily should just approach Mary on her own.

Earlier when Liam spoke with Aria he surprised her by telling her that he is now inc charge of completing Ezra’s book.  During her little break up speech as I said before Aria made it clear Rosewood drama was why she was unclear about her life now about Ezra.  It’s not surprising that when Liam sees them together in the town square that he does look very upset.  You know, since she basically lied to him.

The entire scene with Liam and Ezra seemed like two little boys on the playground.  One is already to play a game of basketball while the other is harboring ill will from previous games so his perspective is not in the present.  Liam thinks that Aria and Ezra are not a good match so instead of him saying hey I saw you too and its never going to work, in my opinion.  He makes it seem as though the book is some how inappropriate and even that the character which is based on Ezra is a predator.  The idea is deep but we all it just silly jealous talk .

For the second episode in a row, Mary Drake met up with Spencer alone.  If this was another show, one that I had not already seen to the end, I could easily believe that Spencer was seeing things.  I digress.  Mary tells Spencer that in her youth she bailed her sister Jessica out of a bad baby sitting gig, by going over to take her place.  Later when the parents came home they found the baby dead.  Mary insists that Jessica had killed it before she had left. No one believed Mary which is why she was in Radley.

When Ezra sees Aria again he insists that Liam was angry and had given him the third degree at their meeting. He doesn’t know what the guys problem is but he wonders how much of his and Aria’s history Liam might know.  Aria looks worried.

Over in New York or wherever Liam and Hanna happen to be, Hanna has a complete meltdown including yelling at the construction workers, when she sees that bar from her memory no long exists.  It makes no sense how this little image in her head would fix how she feels about Caleb, but oh well.  She uses this moment to break up with Liam, who says, “You know I would move heaven and earth for you.”  WOW Hanna you do have some issues.

Its quite interesting how we are supposed to feel sorry for Mary after she tortured Alison last season or maybe even before.  Now she is all over the place telling her story with tears in her eyes just being so transparent, REALLY, what version are we suppose to believe.  I hate this manipulation of emotions, seriously tell a good story stop “yanking or chains.”

Moving on, so Mary is roaming Radley the restaurant, and sees Emily who is filling out an application, she gets every job she applies for by the way.  I know its the eyelashes LOL.  She finally talks to Mary about going to see Alison.  Its weird a lot of what Mary says is the same as what we heard earlier, it makes me think that she was listening.  She even offers to go with Emily after at first saying she thinks Elliot is doing a good job.  Yeah she is acting a little “crazy town” at this point, changing her mind minute to minute, making odd comments about the old Radley.  Why doesn’t Emily notice?  I supposed Emily has a one track mind today, that is to go see Alison.

On the way to the new sanitarium we get a quick stop with Aria and Liam.  He tries to figure out what happened with Aria and Ezra while Aria makes some not so veiled reference to how her life is good because of all the messed up things that happened to her.  Liam is as confused as the rest of us, no really think about it that is a non-commital type answer at the very least.

Finally Emily sees Alison who is highly drugged considering her mutterings about dirt, her mother and being really cold. She of course things Mary is mom, but no one including the nurse bother telling her anything else.  I found that stupid how Emily just went along with crazy talk, but I guess she only had so much time to try to figure out what it all might mean to Alison.  Elliot arrives of course only moment later to kick everyone out leaving Alison in the dark.  He calls Mary into her office and we see right away they are STILL working together.  She wants her money an he just seems to want revenge.  Emily can see from the outside window they are arguing.


Back with Spencer and Caleb we learn that Spencer got fired from her job for being gone too much and what we all knew from the start, her time with Caleb was going to end when he rescued Hanna one too many times.

The end of the episode is one for all of us who have seen the end of the series, will recall it as a pivotal but made no sense at all then or now point of the series.  Alison is drugged and taken to an operating room.
