So, what have we learnt this episode?… once you know something, you can’t un-known it.
Ali got me suspicious this episode because of her accidental A text. Was it a clue? It’s a clue. It has to be a clue. It has to be one of those tricky unstable clues but a clue nevertheless. What’s Ali’s involvement with this A psycho? Is she Big A. Oh Lord! I swear if she’s Big A I am gonna have trust issues for life. I did feel sorry for her during that examination, it’s either A) she was hell of nervous because she’s spun quite a large lie that could cost the girls A LOT or B) something really bad did happen to her while on the run for was it 2 years, that scar sure looked nasty. Maybe it’s both. But judging from her wide eyed look, I’d like to think that she is harboring some dark painful secret(s).
“It’s crazy isn’t it, I mean we’ve all wanted this for so long, a life without A and Ali back. I thought everything would feel like it did before but it hasn’t”
For once, Emily said something that didn’t make me want to shoot myself. I think her point is very important when you look at the girls relationship with Ali. She was the one that bought them together, once she was the core of their group, the girls only ever felt what Ali wanted them to feel, she was the queen and they were her puppets. And then she disappeared and they had to find their own identity, she bought them back together but this time she wasn’t that glue, a true friendship flourished. Ali has returned to the inner circle but not to her puppets but to her equals. It’s gonna be good watching how Queen Alison will deal with this situation. She’s obviously pissed the girls off with her nuclear lie. What next?
I love love love love love love love Hanna’s new hair!!! And what she wore was just…. yes!!
In a world where everyone is dip dying or highlighting or whatevering their hair blonde, Hanna goes for black. Here’s me thinking that she would so pull off completely dark hair. Apparently she’s going back to her shop lifting tendencies, seriously? They can’t think of a better way to have the girl find herself. And that reminds me who the hell is stalking the girls, there was some creep hiding in the bushes at Emily’s and now some creep was in those changing rooms. That better be Big A rising.
The assault on Papa Hastings continues. Obviously, we’re being played stupid. Any time someone is made to look utterly dodgy in Rosewood it’s always the opposite. Evidence? Ezra, Lucas, Toby…. With all that said though; where’s Mama Hastings!?
What I really want to know is why was Spencer BellaSwaning all through the Thrown From The Ride.
“There’s been monsters under my bed for so long that now they’re not there anymore I feel like I have to create them”
As we all know Troian is a Kristen’s superior but all those expressions they had her making were classical Bella Swan. Okay maybe not the gasp, that’s classical PLL but the rest #BellaSwaning . Spencer has been Spenciring away since the end of last season, actually no she’s been Spenciring since the beginning of the entire series, you obsessively seeking answers. And I like that about her, without her PLL would be just 3 teenagers dealing with sociopath, Spencer adds in the feelings.
Let’s just talk about the things I didn’t care for this episode real quick.
1. Andrew falling from the sky. I honestly didn’t remember his name until Spencer said it.
2. Lucas also falling from the sky. Honestly no one missed him.
3. Mona’s uber creepiness, she better have a better plan that practically threatening the girls with what she knows. Plus what in the name is she doing with operation MAkeAlisonWishSheStAyedDeAd is this just some NerdsUnite kind of thing or is she gonna go crazy?
4. The whole Pemily arch that’s just draaagging. Why can’t kill Paige off and then pull a TVD bring back Maya? A life for a life that works
5. Aria in general. She killed freakin A and the girls there moping about it *rolls eyes* Why couldn’t they make Ali kill Shana? No one would complain.
6. The writers trying to slowly build back Ezria from the ashes when everybody knows they’re totally gonna poke in the near future

Until we meet again, Miss More.
