PLL S7 E1 Time is Not on Your Side

9 Aug

Well its time again for another recap of Pretty Little Liars.  This season is special because a couple of years ago the then ABC Family channel decided to renew this show for two seasons at one time.  I never thought that was a great idea in any way shape or form.  It wasn’t good for the audience because we really stopped caring since we knew no matter what there was another season on the way.  I realize that is my opinion but with all the false starts on Who is A, I had begun to lose interest to begin with.  I figured oh well when its all over maybe I will just watch on Netflix or something like that.  I doubt I was the only one feeling that lack of interest but still we had a bit of curiosity, but moving forward.

 

Today’s Season 7 episode begins out with our Lovely Liars digging a grave or a pit or something in the ground.  They are upset and mention Hannah as though she was no longer in the land of the living, hmm odd right.

Then we see those words that always causes confusion if you look away from the screen or someone yells from the other room, 4 Days Earlier.  That is our cue to go back in time to figure out why they were digging, got it?

They are suddenly at the police station getting ready to send Toby in for intel, but wait they see someone that looks at lot like Jessica DeLaurentis.  Things are getting stranger, except we know her from the other season when that crazy guy, Eliott, was pretending to love Alison, except then the group never saw her, she was sneaky.

Toby rushes into the station and says “Hey, I’m officer Toby, you know you look a lot like someone that was brutally murdered here.”  Mary Drake informs him that yes she realizes since she is the dead lady’s twin.  WHOA back up twins? JK.

Back outside after Toby informs the group they receive a timely text from A, about Hannah, then the church bells sound off and they all race toward them. They arrive to find a Hanna look alike, of course they don’t know that till the pull down the body to notice its a Hanna mask.  REALLY?  These are the things that drive me away from this show, what person A or otherwise has the time or foresight to do all these weird things it would be exhausting.

So hidden under the mask is a doll, a big doll obviously with the body of a full grown woman, they do not Approach that problem but any who.  So the doll says that they have 24 hours to save Hannah by turning in Charlotte’s killer to A or A. D., basically anonymous psycho, after they pull on the doll cord LOL.  That is so crazy.

While the group gathers to discuss how to find Charlotte’s killer we have a peek at where Hanna is being held. I find this part distasteful that they kept her in a barn in only a tee shirt and underwear.  I honestly don’t know what the writers were thinking.  I realize that she was grabbed from her room, but seriously, that could have happened at any time.  NO instead they try to put some T & A, into a tragic storyline, dispicable.

Back at the brainstorming session its decided that most of them believe that Alison killed her sister.  Aria recalls seeing a blonde with a red jacket going to the church that night she was sneaking around with Fitz when she had lied about being gone a long time.

Spencer suggests that Alison might have had to defend herself against crazy Cece/Charlotte/Charlie. I find this quite telling about Spencer that she really cares even when others point the finger, plus she was most likely the one that thought Mona had killed Charlotte, there was that one vote.

Some of them randomly decide to go to the Lost Woods to see what Mary Drake is up to since they think she is involved with the Hanna kidnapping. They find her moving bags into a room, so Mona, and Caleb follow Mary when she gets in her car, while Spencer and Toby stay to see whats up at the hotel.

See this not so subtle way to get Toby and Spencer together despite his devotion, “cough” to Yvonne the random woman put in between Spoby!!

Meanwhile Emily is with Elliot trying to get to see Alison.  He insists that Alison has taken a turn for the worse because he thinks she feels guilty about something.  A few minutes later we can hear Alison screaming then nurses and Elliot run in her room, Dr. Elliot calms her with a shot.  Emily looks through the glass and seems in shock.

At the hotel, Spencer and Toby learn that Mary is uber smart and has been to a lot of Europe by looking at her passport.  Spencer is also super excited about her language app that has helped her learn languages like Italian and German, Toby is impressed.  Hmm that is all very Spencer like Yes or? Hmm Language app, didn’t Spencer learned those language before high school lol.

Over at Alison’t house Aria and Fitz rummage through Alison’s unmentionables drawer and laugh nervously in fear of finding a toy, WHAT?  That is after they checked the closets and linens, is this their first rodeo? No I mean search mission.

Cue Elliot arriving home to Alison’s house during the search.  They hide in the closet in the perfect spot to see Eliot get the key for the bench that Fitz couldn’t open.  Eliot opens it and pulls out the Team A uniform of a black hoody and backpack and leaves the room.  He then proceeds to grab a saw to go in his black doctors bag of sharp objects. Whoa no reason for the hardware dude, yikes.  His final stop is the closet and for some reason it seems to indicate to him that someone might be watching.  Aria and Fitz barely escape while Eliott looks out he window.

Spencer heads back home to eat some pickles, you know when her blood sugar gets low she is hard to deal with LOL.  She phones Caleb to see if he wants some food but he has no interest and basically hangs up on her.  Oh well not too long ago he was all over that Spencer now he is back in loving Hanna town he can’t even give Spencer a goodbye.

Mona and Caleb spy Mary Drake getting some odd supplies including charcoal, hey maybe she is throwing a grand opening shindig at the Lost Woods.  Mona thinks its to cover the smell of death for when Mary kills Hanna.  Caleb isn’t amused and Mona is a bit too glib about it me thinks.

In the real world of Hanna has been kidnapped. She is being doused with water, seriously writers more T & A, its just ridiculous.  Get that girl a sweater.  This kidnapper than comes at her with what could be a taser and I don’t honest know what happened but it was unseamly.  Hanna cries out in pain.  AGAIN with the torture, Ugh!!

Mona and Caleb follow Mary till she ends up at the Hastings house. Spencer doesn’t get the text saying don’t answer the door.  She opens the door to Mary unaware of anything about her except what they have been guessing that day.

This seems like a misdirection among so many others but Emily finally has an opportunity to visit with Alison and can only ask what is on her mind, that is if she killed Charlotte.  Alison wakes up just barely, saying “Forgive me.”

Spencer’s little interview with Mary tells us two things, Mary hated her sister and that she is up to something with her little visit.  Otherwise it was a bit pointless, the mouse and cat game of will Spencer out herself or will Mary hurt her since thinks she is a killer.

At Fitz’ place we find that Aria and he are unsure of their relationship status.  Are they together or friends with benefits only time will tell it seems.  Aria is not staying the night however despite his offer of a tee shirt. At the Brew downstairs, Aria is also not going with Emily who is considering going to Alison’s house alone at some point in time.

Before Emily can leave she has a mental breakdown in front of Sabrina, remember her blondness from season 6, who is working at the coffee shop counter.  The girl offers her lemon bars to go with her cappuccino, hmm not sure about that combo.

Hacker 1 and 2 are watching Mary outside a house talking on a phone in front of an open window.  Really, its bad enough there is no way she hasn’t seen them now we are supposed to think she is just plain stupid.

s7 e1 mona and caleb

They are able to track the person she is chatting with to a bar we learn this bar is one that Aria used to go to with Fitz.  I want to know when she had time to go to bars with Fitz.  First they dated and no one could know then they were apart. The small window when no one seemed to care if they dated was not one long enough to include regular bar hopping LOL. Either way Aria is the one chosen to find the mystery guy Mary speaks with over the phone.

Yes the ahhh haa moment for later is when Hanna dreams that Spencer is there with her.  The key take away is that she tells Hanna if A can get in and then out so can she.  Then in the so called dream Spencer sings to her.

s7 e1 hanna spencer

Aria’s time at the bar is a bust, she gets sentimental after hearing a song and goes back to stay the night with Fitz.  So just a waste of time oh and by the way it seems she forgot about her mission in favor of going to hang out with Fitz, ugh, focus Aria!

Night owl Emily decides that after 2:30 in the morning is a good time to go rummaging through Alison’s house even after finding Eliott asleep on the sofa.  I can’t see her being this stupid, how is she to know he won’t wake up and give her one of those dandy shots he gave Alison earlier.  She also is day dreaming while she is in Alison’s room, having flashbacks of things she shared with her including a kiss or maybe more.  She then finds the red jacket in a box she is looking through.

Hanna wakes up on the floor and recalls what Spencer has said.  She begins to find a way out. While at Spencer’s house they learn some interesting things about Mary the babysitter from hell.  She was put in the Asylum because she was accused of killing a child but was in and out all her life, she seems to blame her sister.  Emily arrives with the red sweater thinking she knows that Alison killed Charlotte.  Oh Em, so easy to believe bad about Alison, so sad.

Caleb jumps the gun and rushes out with the red sweater and Spencer’s phone hoping to give it over to A.  He leaves it at the Lost Woods, not knowing that Hanna has escaped and needs help.  She runs into Mary Drake while trying to get a ride wearing those granny panties and tank top.  Bad timing anyone?

The next morning no news is good news as we also see Eliot showing up at the hospital with another needle to keep Alison drugged for life he says.  He thinks she killed Charlotte so this is his way of making her suffer.  He tells her, “Karma can be such a bit*h just like You. Yes Alison knows how to pick em’  Pun intended.

Well that was a doozy of an episode with so much happening.  It sucks that Hanna was kidnapped and Alison drugged.  They both will have scars for life, that is for certain.  So much more to go in this season, I look forward to writing more.

Some things we learned:

  1. Despite Aria and Fitz’ faux getting back together that is up in the air for now.
  2. Caleb has totally gone back to Hanna looks like for the long haul.
  3. Mary is openly in town so more secrets will be shared.
  4. Emily seems to care for Alison as much as when the drama all started.

Thanks for reading and see you next time.  Pictures courtesy of netflix, no copyright infringement is intended.

I have to admit I have been wondering about this since the big reveal of Ezra as A, part of me thought it was just another red herring, but it turns out that well He is the Real A. I even went back to watch seasons two and three trying to half heartedly find the clues. Check out these Twelve Neon Signs.
