A liar is forced to play the game! (A PLL Recap)

Hi little liars! Today, I bring you the recap for the second episode of Season 7B, “These Boots Were Made for Stalking.”

Last week, Spencer’s curiousity got her to start the game A.D. prepared for her and the rest of the girls. On tonight’s episode a few more were manipulated into playing, even though they weren’t really game for it. The first few minutes of the episode was practically them arguing with each other about what to do next. But we all know how games bring out people’s competitive sides.

Like last week, the girls continue to try to move on with their lives without passing go. Hanna freaks out about a dress that may or may not have been designed by her former boss. A part of me thinks Mona is in on the game. I mean, how convenient is it that Mona decides to pick that dress from Hanna’s collection. This becomes very important later in the episode.

Aria starts to spend a lot of time with Holden to keep her mind off of Ezra and Nicole. Instead of going over the menu for the Ezria wedding, she offers to help Holden with catering for another party.

And then there’s Emily. She may not be a student at Rosewood High, but high school drama is still following her around in the form of a bratty girl named Addison. Addison thinks she’s the top bitch at school and has a tendency to eavesdrop on Emily’s conversations with former loves, Paige and Alison. Addison is the new Alison, but definitely worse.

New girl Addison even has the audacity to make false claims about Miss Fields to get her fired. Addison tells Paige that Emily has been inappropriate with her, other students, and faculty members aka Alison. Paige doesn’t believe it, but she does take a little stab at Alison even when she shouldn’t have been involved in the first place.

Spencer becomes desperate to find Mary Drake and even hands over the letter she received to Detective Furey. However, their little meeting gets interuppted, when Jenna returns and claims that she was also a victim of Noel Kahn. I don’t believe a word she says and neither does Spencer.

Spencer isn’t the only one Jenna encounters. Emily finds her at the Brew with a new posse. Jenna doesn’t seem to smell or hear Emily – Jenna is able to hear Spencer breathe and smell Hanna’s scent – but Emily sees Jenna texting another person. Who’s on the receiving end? At this point, it appears to be Addison so Emily knows somethings up and is led to believe that A.D. is probably the reason behind the new high school drama.

Jenna also makes her presence known to Hanna walking down the street with the dress she “designed”. According to Jenna, it was a gift. Yup, a gift from A.D. “It’s all part of the game,” Hanna says to Mona and I’m sitting here thinking Mona is definitely a pawn in this game. Thinking it’s her turn to play, Hanna follows Jenna to find out what she’s up to and ends up getting stuck in a shoe shop. It ends up being a trap from A.D. just to let her know it isn’t her turn. Hanna has flashbacks of when she was tortured and I’m sitting here heartbroken because Hanna doesn’t deserve this at all.

Back to the true player of the episode, Emily begs Ali to give her the key to Spencer’s barn, because she now knows it’s her turn. Turns out A.D. gives her a little evidence to get Addison off her back – a video of some extracurricular activities. Emily goes off on Addison and it’s the best even though the now 20 something year old went back in time and acted like a high school student. I’m not sure what A.D.’s motive is here, but Addison doesn’t really seem to back down from Emily. However, Paige miracously comes to save the day and shuts Addison up with a call to her parents and a copy of an incriminating email. Either way, A.D. is proud of Emily’s confrontation with the high schooler a puzzle piece is unlocked!

Looks like Hanna’s next in line. Let’s hope it actually is her turn because I DO NOT want to see her getting tortured again.

xoxo,

It’s Playtime on Pretty Little Liars! (Spring premiere recap)

If you’re a PLL fan like me, you’ve been waiting for this premiere since August 30, 2016 where we were left with questions and accidents galore all around.But if you are also like me, you are dreading the fact that this is the first of the final ten episodes of Pretty Little Liars. How will we spend our Tuesday nights after June 20, 2017?

The episode starts off right where we left off. After being shot by Jenna, Spencer is rushed to the hospital. It was quite ironic when the paramedic asked Spencer what her mother’s name was. I mean, Mary Drake spilled a huge bombshell – with that and the overall shock of being shot, it was definitely not an easy question for Spencer to answer. As the girls watch on, they discover that Toby was in an accident too.

And then we fast forward one week later. Toby isn’t dead! Keegan Allen did a lot of trolling after that last episode making everyone think that Toby was gone. I even cried. What a jerk (lol jk). While both Toby and Spencer made it out alive, Yvonne is stuck in a coma and as a reminder Noel Kahn won’t be coming back at all.

We get little glimpses of each of the girls and their relationship woes. While i’m ready to see which pairs will be endgame, i’m more concerned about the game A.D. wants to play because the girls soon figure out that Noel and Jenna are not who they are looking for.

A.D. sent Spencer a little get well present and gave her the task of gathering the others to have a little game night. A.D. actully came up with quite the elaborate game board – a replica of the little town of Rosewood. I wouldn’t want to play, but I would want to own it. They seem to agree they don’t have time to play games and most of them attempt to go back to a normal life. Yeah, like that would ever happen.

Spencer, however gets a little push to keep finding out who A.D. is. Detective Furey shows her some evidence that pretty much reveals there were two shooters that awful night she was shot. In addition to that news, Mrs. Hastings comes home and doesn’t deny Mary Drake’s confession. The scene between Veronica and Spencer was a bit heartbreaking and everything Spencer thought she knew was shattered.

After a little text from A.D. and a little curiousity, Spencer is the first to start playing. It begins with a game of “Truth or Dare” and she’s a little daredevil. The game seems to start out easy because Spencer’s dared to visit a certain ex-boyfriend. Her prize? A puzzle piece and a letter written by Mary Drake when she was a baby.

The rest of the girls aren’t too happy with Spencer playing without them. Hanna even wants to destroy the game, but A.D. is watching and starts playing the video of them burying Elliot. And that’s enough for them to keep playing. Winner takes all..

The final scene leaves us with Jenna who was kidnapped by A.D. A.D. drops some papers on her lap and Jenna smiles as she reads about the endgame A.D. has for the pretty little liars.

Other noteworthy things :

  • Ezra’s home and hasn’t told Nicole about Aria, which causes Aria to worry about their pending wedding
  • Alison still holds a grudge against Paige. Is it jealousy involving Emily?
  • Paige is still shady AF.
  • Holden’s back and he’s involved in Ezria’s wedding planning. #awkward
  • Mona and Hanna are still #FriendshipGoals…sometimes.
  • I think it’s safe to say that Haleb is endgame ❤

My question is, who’s turn is it next? And what kind of truth (or dares) will we see? I’m waiting for someone to say “Do Not Pass Go…”

Adele

“The dArkest Knight” A PLL Summer Finale Recap.

Hi guys! It’s been a while and I apologize for that, but here I am. On tonight’s episode, our favorite little liars walk right into the #PLLDeathTrap! Honestly, I can’t even [function] right now. This was our last #PLLSummerFinale and it was epic to say the least, especially those last 5 minutes.

The episode started off with our favorite little liars looking for Hanna. They think that Hanna was abducted by Noel Kahn, but boy do they have it backwards. They are so desperate to find Hanna that they called the police. I can’t believe they actually called the police. I mean, after all these years and many events where they should’ve called the police, they call now?

While the girls stress about Hanna, Hanna’s in a stranded motel room being a badass and torturing Noel. When she doesn’t get the answer she wants, she takes a knife to Noel’s thigh. This is a side of Hanna I never thought I’d see. But she isn’t just torturing Noel for the hell of it. She wants proof and uses Noel’s blood sample to see if he’s the long lost child of Mary Drake.

The search for Hanna is on as Detective Marco takes on the case. Toby should be there, too. But NO, it’s his last day on the Rosewood Police Force and Detective Marco wants to make his move. Aria, Ali, Spencer and Emily are all at the Hastings’ residence getting questioned and Paige shows up to support them (Emily). I still do not trust Paige. And clearly Ali doesn’t either.

Caleb and Mona team up at the Radley hotel to watch Jenna’s every move. Jenna’s freaking out trying to get a hold of Noel, while Mona receives a call from Hanna to meet her. Of course, Hanna would request help from the first “A” for her interrogation skills. Too bad Mona wants Hanna to just go to the police. She eventually does, but she doesn’t reveal to anyone that she abducted Noel. In fact, she leaves Noel tied to the chair. I can hear Noel saying, “Wrong move, blondie, wrong move.”

We are then hit with some relationship feels – one ship after another. First we have Haleb. Caleb can see through all of Hanna’s lies. He knows Hanna and Hanna just doesn’t want to admit it. Caleb’s confession was the sweetest as he proclaims that he wants to spend the rest of his life with Hanna. #HalebIsForever. Meanwhile at the DiLaurentis house, Ali reveals to Emily that she’s pregnant. Despite everything, Emily will always be there for her first love and support her. Alison actually kisses Emily and it’s now the beginning of the #EmisonEndgame. Now Paige just needs to chill out.

Now while the two ships above give us hope, the next two aren’t looking too great. Aria awaits Ezra’s return after there is no news of Nicole’s return. However, she happens to catch the news and finds out that Nicole was rescued. I don’t doubt that Ezria will be endgame, but my heart still broke a little. Spencer decides to visit Toby before he leaves Rosewood. I always love scenes with Troian and Keegan because their chemistry is off the charts. When Spencer gave Toby a #SpobyKissGoodbye, I really felt like it was really their end and I hate this feeling.

Remember when Hanna took Noel blood sample to compare it to Mary Drake? Well it wasn’t a match – at least that’s what the doctor said. Noel as Mary Drake’s child would be the easy way out. Because of this new revelation, Hanna finally tells her friends the truth. They all return to find that Noel has escaped and I sat here scolding Hanna in my head for leaving that dude alone. Can’t you see he’s been working out?

Since Noel escaped, he and Jenna want to trade Hanna’s camcorder for the flashdrive with the doll house videos. A text leads the girls to an abandoned school for the blind. At Radley, Mona and Caleb think they have an eye on Jenna, but turns out it’s Sydney. This is all we see of her this episode, but I think we’ll see more of her. Clearly, the girls are walking into the #PLLDeathTrap and at this point I’m pretty nervous.

When the girls get to the school, Jenna instructs them to leave the flashdrive and Hanna’s torture video starts playing upstairs. They rush to get to the camera upstairs and head back down, but during all that haste Emily accidentally leaves her phone. Hanna ends up back upstairs with Emily, but Noel does not let them leave without a fight. It’s unfair considering he has an ax and the girls are unarmed. But the girls cause a distraction and Noel trips over his feet and falls on said ax. When someone from the PLL staff said that “heads will roll” I didn’t think they meant that literally.

Meanwhile, downstairs, Spencer, Aria, and Ali are running from Jenna who has a gun as her weapon of choice. They manage to sneak past Jenna and Noel’s head and run up the stairs to meet Hanna and Emily. When they get ready to sneak back down, Jenna hears them and shoots. The victim is Spencer and I’m like NOPE. You can’t do this to me. She’s the one we saw in the previews crawling for dear life.

Just when I thought Jenna was going to actually end Spencer’s life, Mary Drake hits her over the head. At this point, my mind is starting to work a little more and I realize who Mary Drake is to Spencer. It’s then confirmed when the girls find Mary Drake singing Spencer a lullaby and confesses “I would never hurt you. I’m your mother.” Then Spencer closes her eyes.

My heart breaks. And then the camera pans to a car crash where we find Toby and Yvonne. Keegan Allen doesn’t make it any better when he tweets “RIP TOBIAS”. Seriously Keegan?

RIPTOBIASWHY YOU GOTTA BE LIKE THAT?! I’m reminded of their goodbye kiss and how the two resemble Romeo and Juliet’s tragic love story.

I can’t focus on the last two scenes: Jenna wakes up in the back of A.D.’s car and a tiny figurine of Spencer is placed in a tiny coffin. This cannot be.

Now, I’m hit with the fact that we only have 10 more episodes left and that we have to wait 8 months. 8 long months.

Anyways, I’m excited to find out who A.D. is and why everyone seems to be coming back. Yeah, I’m looking at you Dr. Wren.

A new web of lies is spun tonight on #PrettyLittleLiars!

Hi little liars! Last week we got our first dose of PLL #5YearsForward and tonight on “Charlotte’s Web” it continued with some new faces and old games.

At the funeral, Detective Lorenzo recommended Hanna, Emily, Spencer and Aria stay. While the first three were willing to stay “home” for a few more days, Aria was very eager to leave. And she did. She was extremely sketchy especially after Hanna called her out for leaving the hotel the night Charlotte was murdered.

As you may already know, Rosewood is a small town so the list of suspects in Charlotte’s case is pretty short. One thing we find out from Detective Lorenzo is that Sara Harvey is off the suspect list because of her hands being severely burned. Just like Alison, I was quite angry at this because Sara cannot be trusted. But after what’s happened in the past, it’s quite easy to point the finger at our favorite group of liars.

Before Aria, leaves she visits Ezra and basically threatens him. “We didn’t see each other the night Charlotte was killed…” Normally, I don’t think Aria is too sketchy, but tonight she was  obviously hiding something, especially considering how fast she left home.

Ali starts to suspect something about Aria after Mr. Montgomery tells her that Aria left a day earlier than planned. And the look on Hanna and Spencer’s faces don’t help. However, at this point Spencer isn’t worried about Aria’s sudden disappearance. After reading the report of Charlotte’s murder, it sounds vaguely familiar to her. Apparently back in college, she wrote a paper about a murder in the 1970’s where a woman was killed the same way Charlotte was.

Over and awkward dinner, Ali makes sure the girls know that she suspects they’re hiding something from her. Again, the looks on their faces don’t help the situation. Hanna tells Spencer what she knows about Aria and they do a little more digging, finding the security footage. Charlotte was killed around 4 a.m. and Aria left the hotel around 3:30 and didn’t come back until after that time. But that’s not the only thing they found. Ezra was with her.aligrace

Aria makes her way back to Rosewood to make sure Ezra is starting his 2nd book, but she seems to have ulterior motives. While all this time we’ve been suspecting Aria, it seems like we should be suspecting Ezra. She asks Ezra where he went after she left him and he simply says he went home. But boy does he look very suspicious. He didn’t look Aria in the eyes.ezra4

The girls visit Aria for an intervention and she recalls everything that happened that night including being with Ezra and seeing Charlotte at the church. Spencer brings up her paper and Ezra’s connection to it. Now Ezra’s at the top of their suspect list. Hanna points out that Aria would look suspicious if the video ever got out and Aria agrees basically asking her friend to get rid of the video. The girls will always stick together. They will always lie together.

But the lies are not going to get them anywhere, especially since Alison now suspects that her friends might have something to do with the murder of her sister.

Lastly, Sara Harvey needs to stop lurking around and smirking at everyone.

Other notable moments:

  • Spencer and Caleb recall their favorite night in Madrid. Something is definitely going on between these two.
  • Hanna’s fiance, Jordan, is cute but that dinner with Caleb and the others was awkward.
  • Aria’s new boyfriend is an adorable brunette coworker. She definitely has a type.
  • Emily is hiding something from her family and friends — she’s been going to the doctor, but for what?

And that’s what you missed on PLL! What was your favorite moments?

The liars are home, tonight (A PLL Recap)

The last we saw our favorite liars, they found out who was behind “A”. Charles DiLaurentis became Cece Drake and Cece Drake became the mastermind behind the whole “A” game. But when she was caught red-handed, she declared the game over. But the game is never really over, is it?

Just when we thought everyone moved on, five years later, Alison decided to summon the girls and bring back some unwanted memories. But before I get into what happened in tonight’s episode, “Of Late I Think of Rosewood”, what exactly were the liars up to in those five years?

Alison ended up as an English teacher at Rosewood High. I’m so used to seeing Mr. Fitz at the front of the class so this was interesting especially considering how long Alison actually spent in a classroom.

Spencer ended up in D.C. I think we all knew that she’d end up in that field or she’d follow in the footsteps of her parents.

Hanna is a mom! Just kidding, they tricked us. Hanna’s engaged with someone that isn’t Caleb and working in fashion. Can you picture her in any other field? She’s come a long way from shoplifting with Mona!

Aria is working in publishing. While I wish she kept on with photography, this career suits her well also, considering her love for literature.

And Emily, well she’s in California. We see her bartending, but the other girls seem to think she’s still in school. I guess things didn’t work out at Pepperdine University.

The girls are finally leading normal lives, but Alison who stayed behind in Rosewood, seems to think that her friends can help her make her case for Cece’s release. She wants her family to be whole but that’s kind of hard when the other members of her family aren’t too keen on the idea.

So Alison asks her longtime friends for a favor. She wants them to lie again for old time’s sake. You’d think by now she’d learn that lying helps no one in Rosewood. No one at all. She wants them to tell the judges that they aren’t afraid of Cece, but Cece was “A”. Cece tortured them and now Alison is asking them to basically let her out? Come on Alison. You can still have your family with Cece while she’s in a safe environment!

In front of the judge, Spencer, Hanna and Emily make no confessions of their true feelings about Cece’s potential release. They put up a facade and act like they aren’t affected. In a turn of events, Aria changes her mind about lying as she remember the events that took place in the dollhouse. I applaud Aria for stepping up and not giving into Alison’s request. Mona, who is also there, seems to have a change of heart and instead of painting Cece negatively like she intended, she seems to empathize with the eldest DiLaurentis sibling.

Aria’s case doesn’t affect the decision and Cece is released. While Alison prepares for her sister’s homecoming, the rest of the girls get together and drink some cocktails in the Radley Sanitarium turned hotel. Drunk Spencer is my fave.

The morning after Cece’s release, she goes missing. Alison has the audacity to call Hanna to see if she visited them. First of all, the girls are hungover because of Cece. Would Cece really be sipping a margarita on her first night out? Second, why would you call Hanna first and not the police? I was quite frustrated with Alison this episode, but then the end was heartbreaking.

Cece was found dead outside the church of an apparent suicide. When we saw Cece in the hospital earlier in the episode, she seemed like she was happy and hopeful. So when we found out Cece was dead, I definitely thought there was more to it and someone else was actually involved. Like I said, my heart broke for Alison because she only had a few hours with the family she has been wanting her whole life. With Cece gone and her father and brother against her, she had no one else. Well, except for Emily and the new doctor.

The girls ended up staying for the funeral and it gave us all Pilot flashbacks of Ali’s funeral. Just like the pilot, an unexpected visitor showed up. And I wanted to throw something at the screen once I saw Sara Harvey walk through the doors. This girl was part of the game and now she’s back.

Now of course, the four main girls can’t go back to their normal lives considering my hunch came true. Cece was dead before she fell out the church window. And we were left wondering who did it.

And that’s what you missed on Pretty Little Liars! But wait! Can I talk relationships for a moment? The hashtag #StillFriends came on the screen as Haleb reunited and I couldn’t help but think of the whole Brotherhood of Ex-Boyfriends (by Toby Cavanaugh). What were they up to before they stared longingly at their ex-girlfriends?

Ezra is broken because of a tragic event happening in South America. He was not the usual Ezra we saw and it makes me wonder if Aria will be the one to bring his spirits up.

Toby, like Alison, stayed behind in Rosewood. He got his diploma but doesn’t seem to be happy where he’s at. The perceptive Spencer knows he’s building a house for someone, but the question is who. Spoby seemed to be the happiest to see each other.

Caleb finally showed up to make sure Hanna was okay, but only after Spencer called. It seems like he’s been hanging around Spencer a lot. Am I the only one that picked up on some sort of Spaleb connection going on?

I am definitely feeling the vibe of this fast forward. The girls are more mature, but are now finding themselves sort of in the same position they were when we first met them. And this time around, I’m confident they know what their doing — kind of.

Anyways, I loved the start of Season 6B! How did you all feel about the Winter premiere? What shocked you the most and what are you looking forward to see? Let me know!

xoxo,
Adele
