About half the residents of Rosewood were at their wit’s end by the end of tonight’s phenomenal Pretty Little Liars, where possible truths and red herrings were unleashed as if they were the hound of hell themselves. The Liars were still in fight back mode, but ‘A’ bounced back from last week’s ambush long enough for a game or two. However, the suspects are narrowing down and just about everyone had something to be guilty about, even if it didn’t concern the mystery of ‘A.’
From gate, Lucas looked hella suspect while he was studying with Hanna, especially when he found out about where Caleb’s birthday party was going to be held. What initially looked like a reconsideration of feelings for Hanna turned into something down right sinister. Could Lucas have been the one who almost killed Emily last week in the greenhouse? The arrows tonight pointed straight at his head, while leading a trail back to Rosewood’s reigning weirdest couple (with Ezria being a close second), Garrett and Jenna. With Lucas freaking out about botching a task “they” asked him to do, and Jenna and Garrett arguing about bringing in a third person into the mix, it’s hard as hell not to just pinpoint the three of them and call it a day with a cup of hot cocoa and a nice book. However. As we know with Pretty Little Liars, secrets and appearances are a dime a dozen in this town, which means that nothing is just that simple. Unfortunately.
The “they” Lucas could have been referring to could have been none other than Mona and Noel, who pretty much invited themselves to Caleb’s surprise party to only look suspect the entire time they were there. You two decide to go for a dip right after Lucas so happens to take Hanna to her alleged doom? Shady much? Those two irk the hell out of me together anyway, so here’s hoping they are psychotic stalkers with the love for a certain letter in the alphabet.
On the flip side, the ‘third person’ Jenna and Garrett were talking about could have been possibly no one at all. Think about it. If the Liars played a ruse for ‘A,’ whose to say this big elaborate fight between Jenna and Garrett isn’t a ruse as well? I mean that was pretty careless for Garrett to drop all that info through that phone when God knows who could be listening in, which they (Spencer and Toby) were. Then again, if Garrett and Jenna are the masterminds behind all things ‘A,’ the Liars surely have them floundering all over the place; and Garrett’s faux pas could be attributed to his wits being shot all to hell. But is it really a good idea to hem up someone as dangerous as ‘A?’ They might come out swinging harder than ever before.
Now let’s focus on Lucas and his disappearance from the lake for a sec. If this kid shows up at school the next day, he’s going to have some serious explaining to do. Plus isn’t Caleb supposed to be Lucas’s so-called roommate? It’s going to be hard for Hanna to continue to lie to and around Caleb without him getting fed up at some point. Hell is seriously coming for Hanna in the next few episodes and home girl will need a prayer or twelve to make it through.
Now onto everyone’s favorite subject (but not mine), which is the fallout over Aria and Ezra’s revelation to Byron and Ella. Poor Aria. The girl actually thinks her parents are gonna come around, but the only thing coming around will be (hopefully) a smack upside Aria’s head telling her to wake the hell up! The only reason they haven’t turned in Ezra is because of the almighty currency known as “reputation.” The Montgomerys problems have already been on the lips of Rosewood’s elite enough times this year, so imagine Ezra’s and Aria’s canoodling making it to the gossip circuit? They would have to simply relocate up out of Rosewood. And preferably nowhere near the Philadelphia Main Line. Just saying.
Byron’s continuous reaction to this whole thing is understandable, yet a bit overboard. Only a bit though, because you have to look at the facts from his standpoint, no matter how contradictory it might make him look and sound. Basically, I think this whole thing has probably made him realize how much he actually screwed up by sleeping with his own student, albeit said student was of legal age. The thorns know no boundaries when it comes to this subject, but I am really, really, really wanting to know what viewers are actually thinking about this storyline, so let’s have a discussion about it in the comments section below.
Outstanding Moments of the Night
– Emily’s response to Hanna’s problems after she herself was attacked by ‘A’ : “No you don’t! I was almost killed. These are not highlights, Hanna.This is glass in my hair!” DEAD!
– In fact, that whole first scene was gold. I replayed it so many times and every time I watch it, I’m threatening a heart attack from laughing too damn much. Kudos writers!
– The fact that ‘A’ has access to Spencer’s summer-house makes me wonder if Spence’s dear old sister Melissa is really away doing God knows what? If not, then the heifer knows something and was probably an accomplice at one time, but cracked under pressure.
– Toby looking at Garrett as if he was the dirt in the cracks of his sneakers for being that damn crazy over Jenna. It was a warranted look, mind you, and that’s all I am saying on that.
– And this Holden kid is a coin toss at this point in time. He didn’t do much to make me want Aria to pursue him, but he might be another Noel Kahn. We shall see…
So that’s all I have for Pretty Little Liars this week. Next week looks even more promising and here’s a taste at what’s to come here. Until next time, Liars!
