It’s happening again on Pretty Little Liars | 6×14 Recap

Hey little liars! Did you miss me? Sorry I failed to provide you with a recap last week. but here’s a few things that happened in case you somehow missed it:

  • Sara Harvey kept being creepy.
  • Angry Ezra was angry. The girls basically accused him of murdering Charlotte.
  • Emily told Hanna her secret.
  • Melissa threw some shade.
  • Hanna and Spencer had the Caleb talk.
  • Spencer and Caleb did more than talk.
  • The red devil new “A” has taken over and sent their first text: “You know who did it and I’m going to make you talk.”

On last night’s episode, the girls are diligently trying to figure out who sent the anonymous text. The first two suspects are Alison and Sara. Alison is off with her doctor friend out of Rosewood, while Sara is cooped up in her room hiding from all the mischief. Who’s the bigger suspect? At this point, it’s Sara, of course.

Hanna has the guts to text back the mysterious number and she actually gets a response. It’s a simple yes to the question, “do I know you?”. It cracks me up because this new “A” didn’t even give a witty response. But not even 5 minutes later, another cryptic message is sent:

“I found what they’re looking for. Tell me who it belongs to.” 9Iron

This points the finger at Ezra and Mr. Montgomery who is definitely up to something when the girls see that he has a room at Radley. But before giving her own father the third degree, Aria goes straight to Ezra first. He’s nowhere to be found and there’s no way in hell that an employee (Sabrina) would let her in his room above the Brew.

Among all the new “A” drama, there’s still relationship drama. Last week, Hanna and Spencer had the talk and this week it was Caleb and Toby’s turn. Even though Toby has a girlfriend named Yvonne and is building a house for her, the look on his face says he is not okay with Spaleb. On a somewhat related note, all the new love interests are so likeable.

Back to the 9 iron investigation, Aria enlists Emily to distract Sabrina while she sneaks into Ezra’s apartment. I have a very good feeling that this isn’t going to end well. Emily genuinely likes Sabrina, but Sabrina thinks otherwise when she finds out what her and Aria did. At least Aria got some information right? Ezra’s 9-iron is not missing, but a message on Ezra’s answering machine tells us that Ezra caught Mr. Montgomery doing something sketchy.

Hanna tells her mom the truth and Ashley has a very disappointed look on her face. But knowing Ashley, she’ll do anything to protect her only daughter. Later on we find out that Ashley stole the back up video. Hanna should’ve told her mom that she was going to confess with the help of Jordan and his lawyer because then Ashley wouldn’t have gone and tampered with evidence. The web of lies continues…

Spencer who’s on campaign duty finds out that Toby is going to propose to the opponent’s daughter and this new “A” has to stick their nose in their relationship business. This new “A” doesn’t have a way with words like Charlotte did.ring

Later on, Spencer awkwardly finds out he didn’t propose, but is interrupted when she asks why. Duty calls and Officer Toby is needed to get Yvonne out of a parking ticket.

Back at the Montgomery’s, a creepy mailman is watching Emily through the window while Aria tries to get a hold of her dad. Mr. Montgomery is too busy meeting with someone and suspects that Aria “knows”. Aria knows you’re being sketchy and your 9 iron is missing!

Caleb and Spencer are kicking ass together and they’re led to the supposed location of the new “A”. After five years, you’d think they’d figure out that “A” is always one step ahead and basically led them on a wild goose chase. They find an abandoned storage unit with a trashcan full of hoodies and a cell phone.happeningagain2Yup Spencer, it’s happening again and it’s someone in plain sight. No more black hoodies or Alison masks, just everyday uniforms, like a mail man and a bell hop, paired with an old man mask. The last clue they find is that this person is staying at Radley because of the carpet behind the 9 iron. But who could it be?

I’m convinced that the new “A” is the Red Devil from Scream Queens. I mean, we had that first text with the devil emoji and all the other emojis in every other text they’ve sent. I kid. But it’s still funny though.

What are your thoughts and theories?

Tonight, the GAME IS OVER.

Hey all! So tonight was the finale of the “Summer of Answers” and my goodness, we got a lot of answers! The episode was crazy and mind boggling, but the puzzle pieces were slowly coming together with “A”’s story and the flashbacks that accompanied it.

I was honestly shocked at how quickly we came #fAcetofAce with “A”! I mean, it happened in the first 10 minutes and then the story of how “A” stole the game, came.

As the girls attended the prom night from hell, Alison was whisked away and was the first to come face to face with her brother – but not before she saw her father and brother lying lifeless in front of her little cell. The others, along with Mona, watched it all unfold before their eyes and “A” aka Charles finally turned around revealing CeCe Drake. Yes, Charles DiLaurentis = CeCe Drake. I don’t know why I didn’t put two and two together. Hell, why didn’t Spencer put that together?

“You were like my very own living doll.” – All Charles wanted to do was play with dolls, but Mr. D wasn’t very accepting of that, so the moment Charles really messed up, i.e. placing baby Alison in a running bath, Mr. D took the opportunity to send Charles away.

But Mrs. D never stopped caring and protecting for her first born. And as he grew older, he met Bethany Young in Radley. While the pair seemed to be have a good relationship, all went to hell when Bethany pushed Mrs. Cavanaugh off the roof and blamed Charles. Clearly, Bethany didn’t know what Mrs. D was capable of, considering she covered the whole thing up and made it look like suicide. “Mr. D abandoned him, but Mrs. D taught Charles how to be ‘A’”.

Years later, Charles died and Charlotte was born. She even managed to get out of Radley for a little to take classes at U. Penn., but instead she took the opportunity to sneak off to Rosewood High to be Cece Drake and ended up being her brother’s girlfriend. That’s such a twisted way to be close to your family. “Why do you think he was so mad all the time? He was so frustrated.”

“That bitch Bethany ruined everything.” In case you forgot, Bethany practically hated Mrs. DiLaurentis especially after she found out about the affair she was having with Bethany’s father. So according to Cece, Bethany threw on Cece’s clothes and snuck out of Radley. Cece thought Bethany was going to go after her mom and hit the first girl she saw outside of the DiLaurentis house wearing a yellow top. Turns out that was Alison and Mrs. D saw the whole thing and covered it all up with Wilden. And oh yeah, Mona hit Bethany over the head with a shovel thinking it was Alison.

While Cece wasn’t part of the first round of “A” games, she weaseled her way in before taking it over completely. And that’s all thanks to Mona’s little stunt in Radley. Basically, Cece has some trust issues.

Then we flashback to the burning lake house where Alison and Shana came to the rescue. Cece had no idea Alison was really alive, but she knew this plan would lure her out to play if she really was alive. But Alison wasn’t the only one lurking around that night. Cece was there along with a little red coat decoy, someone we all know as Sara Harvey. That bitch. I knew I couldn’t trust her. UGH. But not only was she one of the red coats, Sara was the black widow that showed up at Wilden’s funeral. All this time she’s been a minion of “A” and I am angry.

“I know you won’t believe me, but I love all of my dolls. That’s why you’re still alive.” Vanessa Ray did a pretty amazing job this episode.

Anyways, while the girls escape to go save Alison, Mona’s stays behind to listen to the end of the story. But she doesn’t seem to finish because Sara is there ready to blow up the place for Cece. But I guess that’s the end of the story right? NOPE, it’s not. The girls get there in time disable the bomb and Emily punches Sara in the face. I’m going to say it again, I never trusted Sara. They all run after Cece on the roof and try to make amends. Instead of jumping off the roof, Cece gives up and proclaims that “the game is over”.

But is it really? We flash forward to labor day weekend to find that the girls have graduated and are off to college. Alison stays behind, which makes you wonder what exactly happened to Cece, Sara, Mona, and so on. Hopefully we get to see that this fall, when we flash forward 5 years.

Is it the fall yet? Who’s excited!?

XOXO,
Adele

The #SummerOfAnswers continues! A PLL Recap “Songs of Experience”

Hey Little Liars! We’re on week 3 of the #SummerOfAnswers and we got a few tonight! I’m going to go back to the format I did closer to the end of last season with my top 5 moments of the episode tonight, so please proceed if you’d like to know which moments had me freaking out and questioning everything I thought I knew.

1. Andrew is adopted. Let’s get right to it. Aria is getting really good at her detective work. Like us viewers, she is eager to find out who Andrew is and if Andrew is in fact, Charles DiLaurentis. In an attempt to avoid going to school, she stays at Ezra’s cafe and the two team up to find more information. Ezra pretends to be a detective over the phone, but doesn’t get too much medical information. Obviously. But he does find out that Andrew Campbell was in fact adopted. This supports the theory that Andrew may be Charles DiLaurentis which is exactly what I thought at the end of last season, but I kept second guessing it as I watched tonight. Honestly, wouldn’t that be too easy?

AndrewIsAdopted

2. Apparently, there is no Charles DiLaurentis, but…there is a Charlie from the DiLaurentis’ past. Last week, Mr. DiLaurentis completely shut down the idea of Charles. Spencer was quite persistent in trying to get Ali to keep questioning her father, but since that was going nowhere, she went straight to their shared brother. Jason shut the idea down as well, but digs deep and remembers his imaginary friend from his childhood, Charlie. And like all imaginary friends, he was forced to say goodbye and forget. You all know he was NOT imaginary.

3. Sara Harvey stays in Rosewood and “A” emerges from the shadows. Sara Harvey still hasn’t left Emily’s house. And I still don’t trust her. I think there’s more to it than her running away. But Emily seems to trust her, so let’s just give her the benefit now. Anyways, as the girls plan to have a session with Dr. Sullivan (She’s back!), Sara interrupts. But it isn’t Sara. It’s “A” with what appears to be Sara in a bed and a knife in their gloved hand. Of course, what good “A” if he does not continue threatening the girls. They ditch Dr. Sullivan and find Sara fresh out of the shower, safe and sound. Was the video real? Is Sara working with “A”?

sArA

4. Bitter Andrew is released. Andrew had an alibi for both Mona and Sara’s kidnapping, so there’s no case against him. This does not sit well with the girls, knowing that someone is still out there. Of course, Andrew is pissed off considering the hell he was put through. Apparently, he spent the 3 weeks trying to find the girls, not keeping them captive. Also, during the whole facechat incident with Sara, Andrew was still in jail. But, I still don’t trust him. He still gives off this creepy vibe and I definitely think he has something to do with “A”.

bitterandrew

5. A DiLaurentis photo emerges from the ashes…well from the button jar. After the girls, tell Alison about Jason’s revelation, they all search through the DiLaurentis for some kind of trace of Charles. Aria , who has become quite the detective, finds a photo in a button jar of Mrs. D, Jason and the other boy, as seen in the home movies. Alison is left to face her father, but Jason is also there for the support. Mr. D is not having any of it, but the kids caught him in a lie and he can’t go on avoiding this further, right? As the camera pans away, we don’t hear what Mr. D says, but it kind of looks like he says, “He’s your brother.” We finally got a little bit of the truth! But as this convo goes on, “A” watches through the window. I’m thinking “A” has the urge to be part of this family meeting.

How do all of you feel about Andrew? Let me know! Don’t be shy 🙂 Also, where the hell is Mona?! I need her snooping skills.

“Songs of Innocence” – A PLL Recap!

Previously on Pretty Little Liars, our girls escaped but it is not forgotten and “A” may still be lurking!

Tonight’s episode takes us deeper into what happened in that traumatizing dollhouse. We first see the girls together in the hospital discussing the possibility that Andrew Campbell and Charles DiLaurentis are one in the same. It’s easy to think that as a fact, but honestly it’s too easy, if you know what I mean.

But what we do know is that Officer Toby caught Andrew and almost slipped up when he wanted to beat Andrew instead of doing his job. Thanks to the new officer in town, Lorenzo, Toby did things the right way.alidad5Continuing on with Charles, Alison got around to asking her father the question on all our minds: Who is Charles DiLaurentis? He completely shot it down claiming there is no Charles in the family, but seeing his face, he’s definitely lying. Does anyone ever tell the truth?alidad8Emily finds herself visiting Sara Harvey in the hospital and honestly, she seems to be the only one curious about the girl. That being said, Emily is not afraid to get straight to the point. She asks Sara if she remembers how she got to the dollhouse, but all the questions seem to be too much. Understood.

When the girls are released from the hospital and sent home, we see the girls struggle with the homecoming. Things start to trigger their awful memories in the dollhouse and honestly my heart broke a little seeing how traumatized they were.

Hanna couldn’t look at her own room the same way and coped by getting rid of everything, stripping down the wall paper and getting rid of her own bed. Caleb and her mother are there as her support system, even if Hanna doesn’t want to talk about anything.

Aria coped by using all of her energy to make sure Andrew gets what he deserves. At this point we don’t know if Andrew and Charles are the same, but Andrew definitely did a number on Aria with how close he got to her. With all the evidence, it’s understandable how paranoid Aria is about Andrew. Aria evens tells a lie to the police so that there’s a testimony about Andrew, but she realizes that lies are going to get her nowhere.

Spencer’s homecoming isn’t that great when she finds out that her mother made sure she didn’t take the anxiety pills. And you know what? It’s with good reason! Her mother is looking out for her and knows that her former problem might come to the forefront with those pills. Spencer even steals a pill from Aria, and that’s how we know Mama Hastings was right in her decision.

Emily finds a little bit of comfort by going through her father’s things, more specifically his guns. She ends up at the shooting rage with one of her fathers’ guns and without a guardian, which of course worries her mother when she finds out. I know she wants to defend herself, her friends and her family, but Emily with a gun in her current state is not the answer.

During their moments to cope, we learn bits and pieces of what actually happened in the dollhouse. “A” made them choose between each other everyday – Choose one or make them ALL suffer. Clearly their relationship isn’t in such a good place right now and it’s heartbreaking. I know it was against their will, but how do you look your best friend in the eye after playing a part in their suffering?

In the final moments of the episode, Emily steps out of her house to find someone watching from afar. My first instinct is that it’s “A”, but Emily has the guts to run and see who it is. My nerves didn’t really calm down even at the sight of Sara Harvey. The reason she got into this whole mess was because she ran away, and now that she’s back out of that hell hole, she ran away again! And she found Emily’s address at the hospital? Stalker much.

Honestly, I’ve learned over the past 5 years to trust no one who conveniently ends up in Rosewood. But I guess it’s too early to tell if we can trust Sara or not.

So what do you think? Are Charles and Andrew one in the same or is Andrew a pawn in this game? Can we trust Sara? How is Mona coping?

Let me know!

XOXO,
Adele

GAME ON, CHARLES! The Pretty Little Liars Season 6 premiere is finally here!!!

The game is definitely on! The last we saw of our liars, they were captured by “A” with no way out and Alison went to jail for the murder of Mona Vanderwaal. Oh yeah, and we found out that Charles is “A”. So tonight marked the first night of the #SummerOfAnswers and we became one step closer to finding out who Charles is.

The first thing we saw tonight was the escape. It was practically a replay of the final minutes of the Season 5 finale except we saw another point of view from an unknown blonde girl who was also a prisoner. My guess it was Bethany Young or that girl who had gone missing from the other town. She didn’t follow but the others didn’t get too far anyways.

They were caged in and locked out of the dollhouse. It started to rain and let’s just say the whole place was charged. If my timing is correct, they spent about two or three days outside without any water or food. Also, let’s not forget about their prom dresses. I hated seeing the girls like this, but I loved that they still had some snarky remarks for “A”. My personal favorite was when Hanna said, “You may be a dude, but you’re still a bitch.”

stillabitch

After a few days, Charles finally opens the door back into the dollhouse. Per Mona’s advice/knowledge, they go back in to face the wrath. Mona mentions that Charles may not be mad at them anymore and their punishment is over. I think not. The girls vow to stick together as they walk in, but that is soon destroyed as Charles appears with a little gas bomb, grabbing Mona and putting that gas mask to use. The others are left to fend for themselves.

To continue the sick game, the girls wake up with white sheets covering their body in what looks a lot like a morgue. If this is a message “A” wants to send to the families, it’s frankly disgusting and I know their loved ones won’t give up. After Mona (as Alison) brings them some juice and aspirin, “A” summons them to their rooms to find their “surprises”. The screams did not put my soul at ease.

Fast forward to three weeks later and we find out that Alison was discharged from the murder conviction. She appeared in front of the press to give her statement about her friends kidnapping and the alleged suspect, Andrew Campbell. Yes, Andrew Campbell. I knew he was sketchy. Honestly, I’ve had my moments where I absolutely was disappointed in Alison. I couldn’t help but tear up after seeing her finally out and trying to rescue the others. It’s time for Ali’s redemption.

Ali working with the cops is one thing, but Alison working with the PLL boys is absolutely amusing. The whole thing with the mystery caller being in the house was epic. Everyone thinks Andrew or whoever is going to strike and kidnap Alison, but he’s always one step ahead and knows people are watching.

Back at the dollhouse, the girls are finally let out of their rooms to play, donning some old school outfits. I’m so curious about what happened in each room because all the girls look so traumatized. They head to Alison’s room to avoid further punishment and find that they are getting the room ready for their best friend’s arrival. They also find that Mona’s going to be replaced. Charles is pissed at Mona, but what did she do to deserve being sent to “the Hole”. Mona, you are so strong, you’ll get through this!

“A” leads Alison to where the girls are at and I’m very impressed. He freaking hijacked roadside assistance and then gave her a welcome card with a deadly message. Not cool. At least Ali was clever enough to leave some clues for Ezra and Caleb!

During the down time where the generator shut off, the girls make a plan to get Mona back and escape. This plan includes destroying Charles’ soul, every memory he had as a child. First on the list, that home video outside the Campbell farm. “Game on Charles,” Spencer says as she lights the film on fire. Charles is put in quite the predicament when he has to choose between the childhood memories or welcoming Alison.

gameon

And he chose his childhood. “A” has a soul. As he tries to put out the fire, Ezra and Caleb find Alison, but just before they leave they hear the fire alarms going off. The girls get to Mona who is extremely distraught. I applaud Janel Parrish, she is just so good. I’m honestly surprised that “A” didn’t catch any of them. As the girls run to escape, Ezra, Caleb and Alison are there busting the doors open and HOORAY, I was so excited, but also a bit hesitant. I didn’t think they’d get out in the first episode! But the game’s just beginning.

rock

As everyone reunites, Spencer tells Toby they finally have a name and Officer Toby tells her it’s Andrew. But that’s too easy, if it’s Andrew, isn’t it? After last season, my theory was that Andrew was in fact Charles, but hearing all this stuff in the first episode about him being the prime suspect is a bit unbelievable. Does that make sense?

At the end we also find out who the other blonde is, it’s Sara Harvey, the girl who went missing at the same time Ali did. And someone FINALLY asked the big question that everyone has, “Who is Charles DiLaurentis?”

I’m excited for this summer of answers! What are your theories so far?

XOXO,
Adele

P.S. I totally forgot about doing a Top 5 format. I was just really excited about talking about the premiere! 😉

“Welcome to the Dollhouse” – A PLL Recap

Welcome to the Dollhouse, liars!

Tonight was the night the #BigAReveal took place and it was an emotional roller coaster ride. The whole episode was crazy, creepy and insane. This episode had 2 big reveals: one of them made me happy but the other reveal left me extremely frustrated and disappointed. “A” has some deep problems, but apparently they have a soul according to one of the girls. Yeah, right.

So let’s get on with it! Here are my top moments (in order of appearance) of tonight’s episode and a little theory at the end, in case you’re interested.

The girls’ van is hijacked and they are taken to “A” dollhouse. After last week’s episode, Hanna, Spencer, Emily and Aria are taken away in their orange jumpsuits away from Alison. According to Hanna’s contact the police think the five girls are planning something big, but we all know this is “A”s handy work. In the transport van, the Hanna reveals how jail is which doesn’t ease the others’ fears, but they all share a cute friendship moment together and I hate having to see my girls getting arrested for something they didn’t do.

But anyways, that moment is interrupted when “A” hijacks the van, taking out the officers and busting through the back door of the van. Understandably, the girls are scared for their life considering “A” is pointing some big gun at them.

“A” knocks them out with some type of gas and they all wake up in what appears to be exact replicas of their bedrooms. Did they just all wake up from a big nightmare? Nope, considering they were still wearing orange jumpsuits and behind every window/door is a solid wall. The doors open and a mysterious overhead voice advises the girls to follow the lighted path which happens to lead to a replica of Alison’s room. Once they reach the room, a blond girl is playing the piano with the Ali mask on. Once that mask is taken off, we find out that…

Mona is alive! I think a majority of fans were really rooting for Mona to be alive and I screamed once that mask came off. Even though she was wearing the Ali mask for a few minutes, the piano playing was definitely an indication that it was Mona.

Honestly, at first I thought this was Mona’s twin or something and she’s playing this stupid game with the girls, but then she started acting like she was Alison and I was thoroughly confused. I thought long and hard about it and was convinced that Mona was under “A”s spell or she completely lost it. I’m glad she was just acting to appease “A”. She knows “A” is not playing games when it comes to someone disobeying them.

Mona went on with her Alison act and kind of became the leader of the group, naturally. Since Mona had been there for so long, she knew he ins and outs of the dollhouse. From experience and the torture “A” put her through, she was able to share that information with the girls. Honestly, this was the biggest OMG moment of the night!

The Hastings pay a visit to Alison. Officer Toby goes to Mr. and Mrs. Hastings to inform them of what happened to their daughter and the other girls. Apparently, the cops know, but they want to keep it a secret and out of the press. I would’ve loved to see all the parents be informed, but oh well.

Mr. and Mrs. Hastings were hell bent on thinking it’s all Alison’s doing, which frustrated me. Like, how does an 18 year old girl who is distraught and sentenced to life in prison, have ANYTHING to do with 4 other teenage girls disappearing. Sure, Ali was a great manipulator, but really? Their theory leads them to Alison to ask her questions and Ali finally tells the truth about the return of “A”. I’m so happy because they actually believe her later on. They become part of the “A” search party along with Ezra, Caleb and Toby.

Detective Tanner teams up with Caleb and “A”s lair is found. Earlier in the episode, Toby tries hacking the police radar for the van, but doesn’t get very far. Detective Tanner also gets some research done, which leads her to Caleb and issuing a warrant of arrest. This angered me as well. Tanner was so focused on finding evidence against the girls and their boyfriends. I was so happy that the Hastings were representing Caleb and pretty much manipulated Tanner into allowing Caleb to use their system to do some more hacking/research.

Caleb uses the police system and is able to find the van. I found it so hilarious when Tanner put her hand on his shoulder, and he brushed it off like “Bitch, don’t touch me.” It looks like Caleb might be the next person joining the Rosewood police force!

His research leads them to the Campbell apple farm, a place where the Hastings used to take the girls when they were younger. I didn’t really find that piece of information with the girls useful, but the Campbell apple farm was a trigger. In case you forgot, Campbell is Andrew’s last name. Oh and the Campbell farm is where “A”s lair is. Finally, Tanner sees that the girls have been kidnapped.

A twisted Senior Prom takes place and “A” is revealed. In the dollhouse, “A” wants to relive a prom that’s happened in the past, meaning it’s either a current or past student of Rosewood High School. Of course, “A” puts the girls to work. Aria in charge of the music, Emily and Spencer in charge of decorating, Hanna taking care of the food, and Mona (as Alison) overseeing the prom queen committee.

Spencer uses this decorating committee as a way to enact an escape plan and boy, do I love the way Spencer thinks. Spencer goes along with “A”s game wanting to plan a beautiful prom with an elaborate entrance for Alison, considering Alison is their favorite. She mentions some things needed to decorate and the next day “A” delivers, not expecting that they are about to get played by these girls. But one thing we need to remember is that “A” is always ahead in the game.

In between all the set up, Spencer puts some pieces of the puzzle together. When she was in “A”s play room she saw the letter blocks and her mind put together a name: Charles. And if you remember the note in Mona’s mirror, Charles DiLaurentis. #CHARLESISA

Once everything is set up and ready, “A” provides the girls with some beautiful prom dresses and although this isn’t the prom they dreamed of, at least they looked good right? As they wait for Alison aka Mona to come down the stairs and crown her Prom Queen, they ask Charles to come out amongst the mannequin prom guests. He does and once they get closer, the use their little camera contraption to bust out the circuits, giving them enough time to try and escape. I thought that the girls could’ve at least beat “A” a little bit and even unmask them. I mean, the five ladies are so badass, I think they could’ve taken him.

Spencer finds a room with “A”s belongings, including some home videos and pictures. Spencer plays the video and we see a younger Mrs. DiLaurentis with baby Alison and two young boys outside the Campbell farm, one we can assume is Jason and another who may possible another DiLaurentis son. Spencer finally stands face to face with the masked “A” and it’s a tense moment, but he manages to disappear right as Mona appears to interrupt the moment.

The final scene brings us to the girls escaping, but they’re fenced in. You know why? Because “A” is always one step ahead.

Honestly, this season 5 finale had so many intense moments, but the “Big A Reveal” was not what I expected. I was hoping we’d actually see a face. No more masks, distractions or diversions. But all we got was a name. Sure, we got the answer to who “A” was, #CharlesIsA, but we were all left with one big question: WHO THE HELL IS CHARLES?  It was such a huge tease. -_-

With that being said, here is my #PLLTheory of the week: Obviously, the Campbell farm with “A”s lair is very important. Andrew Campbell seems to be involved with this. After all, he was listening in on Mrs. Hastings’ phone conversation with Melissa and he’s been very creepy as of lately watching the girls closely and worming his way into one of their lives. It could be very possible that he was the other boy in that DiLaurentis home video. He could very much be Jason’s twin and Alison’s other older brother (if that other boy was a DiLaurentis son). Charles may be “A”, but you can’t spell Andrew without “A” either, right?

What do you think was the biggest reveal of the night?MONAALIVEcharlesisa

You know what to do. Leave me your thoughts, comments and theories!

A PLL Recap: The verdict is in!!!

Hey little liars! To be honest, I’m pretty emotional right now. I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m just in plain disbelief. I mean, sure, we all knew this was coming, but to hear it and see what happened in the last 2 minutes of the episode was just overwhelming. If this is how I’m feeling now, I can imagine how I will be next week when the “big reveAl” happens.

Anyways, enough of me ranting…here are my top 5 moments of tonight’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, “I’m a Good Girl, I am.”

Capture5. Lesli Stone returns to Rosewood as a surprise witness. In case you need a refresher, Lesli made her first appearance in 5×18, claiming to be Mona’s friend from out of town. She reveals to the girls that she talked to Mona the night before she died and heard a male voice yelling at Mona, which we found out later was Mike. Let’s just say, Mike and Lesli didn’t have a good impression on each other. During, the trial Lesli brings a piece of evidence, a little card mentioning Alison’s threats. It doesn’t make anything better for Alison. Lesli then proceeds to throw Hanna, Mike and the girls under the bus, stating that they were all hiding something. She claims that Hanna was stalking her and Mike “practically attacked” her, which is sort of true, but still, this girl came out of nowhere. Either this was all part of Mona’s grand scheme or Lesli is working for “A”.

4. Alison takes the stand. The whole episode, Spencer, Emily and Aria are working to find someone that can be Ali’s alibi. We flashback to Thanksgiving where Ali is at the park waiting for Cyrus. She doesn’t see anyone, but she does hear someone. Due to some amazing detective skills, Emily and Spencer find this person by seeing a certain scarf/patch. However, the girl who was at the park doesn’t get them anywhere as she was recovering from partying too hard the night before. This dead end causes Alison’s lawyer to use their own surprise witness…Alison. Capture

Ali’s lawyer brings up the point that Alison fractured her elbow when she was little and it never healed. What does that have to do with Mona’s death? The force used to push her around. I thought this was making a good case until the prosecution dug up some old archery award. Alison says nothing about it. After the jury goes into deliberation, Alison reveals that she convinced her bunkmate to help her rig that archery competition. It looks like she didn’t want to open up a can of worms mentioning her old bunkmate, whoever it was.

3. Ezra vs. Caleb over Mike. Honestly, I was getting pretty frustrated with Aria. I understand she wants to protect her brother in all of this, but I think Mike was looking at the bigger picture when he wanted to confess everything he knew if he was called to the stand. As Aria enlisted Ezra’s help to take Mike away from all the madness, Caleb wanted Mike to tell his side of the story. Ezra and Caleb got in a pretty heated argument about what Mike should do, but during all their bickering, Mike drove off. He didn’t get too far as he was attacked by a pretty skilled archer, knocked unconscious and tied around a tetherball pole.Capture

Ezra and Caleb were successful in getting past the mysterious archer(s), and rushed Mike over to the Rosewood police, but not before taking a photo of his binding situation. And while I thought that this proof and Mike’s state would be some good evidence, apparently it wasn’t, according to Detective Tanner. To me, she basically implied that the whole attack on Mike was staged to try to get the girls off the hook. Detective Tanner is either working for “A” or the whole Rosewood Police Department is in denial. If Aria allowed Mike to tell the truth, I think the whole thing could have been avoided or at least put off for a little longer.Capture

2. Andrew reaches another level of creepiness. Andrew gets very defensive when he hears that Aria recruited Ezra for help regarding Mike. He’s gotten to be a stage 5 clinger and obviously he’s jealous of Ezria’s relationship. He keeps repeating his “I’m here for you 24/7” spiel to Aria, but the one time she calls him for help in looking after Mike, he’s not available. And it happens to be when Mike goes missing. Later on during the trial, he meets Aria to apologize. Somehow a yearbook quote is worked in the mix and Aria finds out that Andrew was a Pathfinder Scout for 12 years. Um…Ezra, Caleb and Mike were attacked at the Pathfinder Scout camp the night before. “A” is for Archer Andrew.

alisverdict51. #AlisVerdict & the arrest. Remember when I was ranting earlier? Well, this is why. Again, I think the majority of us knew the jury would find Alison guilty, but to hear it and to see it was heartbreaking. Sure, Ali’s done some unforgivable things to a number of people, but for her to go to jail for a murder she didn’t commit had me feeling all kinds of emotions. The evidence and testimonies didn’t help Alison at allOne thing that made me angry was the reactions from people behind the girls who were in distraught seeing their innocent friend get a verdict, landing her life in prison. Everyone behind Emily, Spencer and Aria were all smiling. I was sitting here playing the scene back, thinking, “YOU ALL DON’T KNOW WHAT’S REALLY HAPPENING HERE, SO STOP SMILING.” Maybe if Mike actually testified, it would’ve changed something. But “A” is always one step ahead.alisverdict6

Anyways, after Alison’s heartbreaking verdict, Tanner finally made an appearance at the trial to gloat and to arrest the remaining “liars”. Officer Toby was too late to save them and Tanner had all the evidence she needed to land them in jail with Alison and Hanna. I also dislike the fact that she was conveniently there to arrest them right after Alison’s verdict.

Since all of them are in jail now, I wonder how their dynamic will change and what games “A” has up their sleeve. I guess we’ll find out next week along with who “A” is.

Theory of the week: As I was writing the bit about Andrew earlier, I came up with a theory. Apparently, there have been talks about there being a twin in the mix, that’s not Alison’s. In case you missed it earlier, Alison’s past came up about camp when she was 11 and her convincing a bunkmate to rig the game of archery for her. Maybe that’s where it all started? We all know Andrew gets pretty competitive and may have some great archery skills, so maybe Andrew has a twin sister who is very similar! Who knows!?

That’s it for this week, liars. You know what to do! Like, share, & comment. Let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode and share some of your theories!

XOXO,
Adele
