Now Watching: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists “The Patchwork Girl”| 1×5 Recap

Last week, secrets spilled and people in hiding were found.

After invading Taylor’s space, Alison is taken on a little joyride to the middle of nowhere. Taylor freaks and reveals that she faked her suicide because someone was trying to kill her. With Alison finding her in the woods, she’s in danger and I wouldn’t doubt it.

On the other side of town, Mona learns about Ray Hogadorn and how he sees and knows everything. He’s like the Oz of Beacon Heights. He knows that someone was after Taylor and warns to keep her away since he sent her the first warning on the wall we saw a few episodes prior.

Despite all the drama, there is one thing that is keeping Ava’s hopeful – the fact that her dad may be around and trying to communicate with her. Last week, she received a music box and this week she received a secret note addressed to her in a way that only her dad knows. She later gets a call with an unknown number playing a message indicating the time to meet.

In an attempt to disassociate herself with the Nolan case, Ava devises a plan to drug Mason and get a confession out of him. As she proposes the plan, Caitlin is willing to help to apologize for what she did, while Dylan is hesitant because there is too much to risk, especially with his audition later that night.

Back in the woods, Taylor reveals that her mother, Claire, used Mona’s program to bring Alison to BHU. Claire was confident that Alison, would lead her to Taylor because of their similarities. Alison tries to convince Taylor to trust her just like Nolan did. Eventually, Taylor gives in and goes back home. I still can’t wait to figure out who has a vendetta for the Hotchkiss family.

Later that night, the Caitlin and Dylan meet at the cabin to prepare for Mason. Ava is late to the party as she has a tech rehearsal for her fashion show. An unexpected slide comes on the projector with a revealing photo of Dylan and Nolan. Ava is pissed to say the least. The trio argue and Ava wants to get the confession done and be done with the other two. The other two begin to hesitate and back out, but they’re already in too deep.

Mona spends her day trying to get a hold of Alison and is rudely interrupted by Dana Booker. She asks why Alison is protecting the three students and finds it strange that she seemed to do the same back in Rosewood – referring to her being the leader of the pack with people dependent on her. But while Dana Booker did her research, so did Mona and she did not hold back on why the former FBI Detective was fired.

After Alison brings Taylor home, she finally gets Mona’s text, “If you found her, don’t come back.” Was it an exaggeration? Not according to Ray Hogadorn. Ali gives in to Mona, but doesn’t find any sign of Taylor when she goes to wake her up. Either someone found her, or Taylor still doesn’t trust Alison.

Mason doesn’t show up to the cabin on time, so Ava and Dylan bail. But with perfect time, Mason texts Caitlin he’s on the way after they leave. Mason denies the whiskey because of a team pact, but Caitlin improvises. Caitlin somehow gets him to leave to get firewood and when he returns, she sees this as an opportunity to knock him over the head and steal his phone.

Ava goes back to her personal drama and follows the clues her dad allegedly left for her, only to find that Dana Booker played her. “You tell me all about who killed Nolan, we can forget about the past,” Dana proposes. Ava’s smarter than that, though.

The last scene finds us with Caitlin trying to gain Ava and Dylan’s trust with what she did to Mason. They meet at the old road and while Ava is on the way, someone cuts her off and meets the other two first. It was quite a quick meeting when the unknown driver hit Caitlin with their car.

To be honest, I’m gonna be mad if Mason has nothing to do with anything.

TLDR: 

  • Ava’s got trust issues and it shows. I don’t blame her.
  • Alison somehow convinces Taylor to come home even though someone’s trying to kill her
  • Dana Booker likes to stick her nose into other people’s business.

Now Watching: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists “The Ghost Sonata”| 1×4 Recap

Last week on PLL: The Perfectionists, we got to know Mason a bit more and this week I can’t decide if I hate him or Nolan more.

Our three favorite perfectionists talk about Caitlin’s discovery about Mason’s gum wrappers and he has perfect timing. He’s extremely arrogant and makes it very clear he wants to take over Nolan’s spot as head honcho.

Mona found that her BHU match system was hacked and found a new person similar to Caitlin and Alison, a man named Ray Hogadorn. She starts with Caitlin to figure out what the the have in common and is rudely interrupted by the handyman at BHU – which is important later in the episode.

Caitlin meets with Claire Hotchkiss to finally tell her off. She sees her secret boyfriend, Jeremy, but pulls away as soon as Claire enters the room. Caitlin reveals she can’t deal with spying for Claire and the Hotchkiss matriarch is not having it.

After Caitlin chooses sides, she proposes a plan to Ava and Dylan to get close to Mason to see what he knows. While they agree, they notice that the scoreboard says, “I see a rat.” Someone’s watching! The three run to Ali’s and she advises,” Secrets have a way of bringing you closer.” I had PLL feels.

As Ali continues to get comfortable in her new home, she finds books belonging to the previous owner, Taylor Hotchkiss. Taylor was very fond of “The Oz Books”. By the way she mapped at Beacon Heights, it seemed Taylor was on a search for Emerald City.

Secrets kept flying around this episode. Dylan finally decided to tell his boyfriend the secret Nolan had on him. At first, we’re meant to think Dylan’s secret is his pinched nerve. Andrew is pissed that he hid this, but Dylan adds salt to the wound revealing that he slept with Nolan multiple times.

Claire finds an opportunity to meet with Mason and gets a message, “I see you -A.” I died, but it was just Ava giving her moral support. Caitlin tries to get Mason to confess about his alibi, but he’s one step ahead revealing that he knows about Jeremy and that he would never rat her out. Keyword = rat. Claire can’t let Ava hear this, which makes you wonder why Jeremy is a big deal.

Ava comes home to a tiny music box and remembers her dad. But the fond memories are ruined when Caitlin reveals the actual secret Nolan had on her. Caitlin reveals she was the rat that revealed the investigation surrounding Ava and her family. Something tells me Claire Hotchkiss is smirking as this goes down.

Throughout the whole episode, Alison is preoccupied with thoughts of Emily. She feels that Emily moved on and it seems to me that Alison isn’t allowing herself to move on either. Among all the chaos surrounding BHU, Alison finally signs the divorce papers Emily sent. Why the hell would they break up Emison after everyone got their happy ending?

But life goes on Alison’s investigative nature kicks in. She explores a location on Taylor’s map – McDevitt’s Quarry. She confidently navigates the woods and finds a trailer. In the trailer, she finds the missing Oz book and the missing [live] body of Taylor Hotchkiss.

Ali isn’t the only one on an adventure. Instead of meeting her mysterious chess mate, Bad Bishop, she follows the Ray Hogadorn lead. Like Alison, she has no fear and enters a room full of secrets. Whoever the occupant is, is pretty focused on the Hotchkiss family. We find that Ray Hogadorn is the handyman that almost stabbed Mona.

Can’t wait to see how these secrets play out!

TLDR: Mason may be worse than Nolan. Emison is divorcing. Mona is smitten by a chess player. Secrets don’t seem to be bringing anyone closer at this point.

Now Watching: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists “…If One of Them is Dead” (1×3) | A Recap

Last week on Pretty Little Liars: The PerfectionistsAlison decided to provide an alibi for her and her three students. To make sure they’re all on the same page, she invites them over and unplugs Beacon Guard. What a great way to make it obvious.

Dana Booker, the new head of security, obviously doesn’t believe their story as she shows Claire Hotchkiss a photo of the three students meeting in front of Thorne Hall before Nolan’s untimely death.

Claire doesn’t believe that Caitlin has anything to do with Nolan’s death and believes that she’ll be the first to break. She advises Dana to target Caitlin first. Out of the three, Caitlin seems to be the most eager to keep up appearances as Nolan’s “perfect posse” and that includes volunteering at her care package drive. Dylan and Ava aren’t too interested any more, especially with Dylan’s anniversary and Ava’s Vogue interview.

Ali is on a mission to figure out who is trying to frame her and her students. Mona is her go to for information, but Mona reveals that she is locked out of Beacon Guard due to suspicious activity. There is one person who doesn’t want to be found!

Life must go on and that includes class. Nolan’s former best friend, Mason makes a bold move and sits in Nolan’s seat. Caitlin has a bit trouble speaking up, while Ava gets angry and storms out. As Caitlin attempts to run after Ava, Dana Booker stops her and reveals that she knows her mother’s secret.

Ali meets Mason outside of class and he made a complete 180 from the funeral. He is arrogant and his true feelings about Nolan emerges. Mason reminisces about the perks of being in Nolan’s circle, but things changed when they started at BHU, especially considering Nolan stole Caitlin.

While Caitlin struggles at her drive sans her two new besties, the other two have their own struggles. Ava contemplates how she is the perfect choice for Vogue and gets drunk in the process. Dylan on the other hand struggles with a new composition and pictures of him and Nolan start to haunt him. Dana Booker and her perfect timing gets into Dylan’s head. “You’re nothing like Ava and Caitlin.”

Caitlin decides to meet with Claire for help with Dana Booker and the family secret. In exchange to keep Caitlin’s secret, Claire asks Caitlin to find out the other’s secrets. And just like that, Caitlin breaks, just like she predicted. Claire also gives Caitlin a gift that she found from Nolan.

Caitlin finds out that the said gift from Nolan was actually meant for Ava – a broken camera lens symbolizing how much Nolan wanted to protect Ava. She visits Ava, moreso to get information, but her conscience stops herself from snooping. Ava thinks Caitlin went out of her way to do something nice and decides to keep her promise to join her volunteering.

Ava decides to drive the three of them to a cabin in the woods. On the night of Nolan’s death, Ava had followed him there and saw him with a blond. At the time she thought he was cheating, but now believes it had to be something else. They’re visit is interrupted by an unexpected intruder, Alison. They all explore for clues, but claim to find nothing!

On the way home, Dylan reveals he found a gum wrapper similar to the one found in the woods. The drive is cut short when Dylan has to puke. Apparently, someone left Nolan’s stash in Ava’s trunk with a little note and present – “One of you is a rat, you tell or I will.” My favorite part of this scene was Ava picking up a dead rat and throwing it away. She’s a badass.

Alison also lied about not finding anything. She returns to the cabin alone and takes home a yellow rose, which still seemed to be fresh. After doing some Instagram research, she finds that a yellow rose is associated with Taylor Hotchkiss.

At this point, everyone seems to be opening up to each other. The three gives each other a pep talk. Dylan opens up his music to the girls, Caitlin is seen smiling about her volunteer efforts, and Ava decided to do her Vogue interview sober. Her monologue was my favorite as she started with,”I am not a perfect choice for the Vogue internship..” She talks about perfection and how it doesn’t exist – how it’s okay to ask for help.

The ending scene shows Mason offering to walk Caitlin home. She declines but notices a very similar gum wrapper as seen in the woods and the cabin. Mason is definitely hiding something.

Also, do you know how much I love the little quips between Alison and Mona?
Alison: Do you know why I faked my own death?
MonaBecause everyone in Rosewood wanted to kill you?
Alison: Not everyone!

TLDR: One of the perfectionists almost breaks, but they all finally open up to each other. Mason is not at all who he appears to be.

Now Watching: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists Pilot Episode | A recap

For Pretty Little Liars fans all over the world, tonight was a big night with the debut of it’s spin-off series, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. The show features two of Rosewood’s fiercest women, Alison Dilaurentis (Sasha Pieterse) and Mona Vanderwaal (Janel Parrish), along with a few new faces.

Now while I will always love and miss my OG liars, I thoroughly enjoyed the pilot with it’s introduction to different characters, a murder mystery, and the musical soundtrack. Of course, you can take a girl out of Rosewood, but drama will always follow her wherever she goes.

The episode began with a mean orchestral version of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”, a voice over, and an introduction to three Beacon Heights University students striving for perfection. Little do they know, something pretty big is going to hit them really hard.

Next came our favorite former mean girl starting a new gig as a teacher’s assistant at Beacon Heights University. Alison is sans her wife and twins as we later learn that Emily still has trust issues. While Alison thinks she’s alone in her new town, she’s actually greeted by a familiar face, Mona, who brings pie. Mona had a hand in recruiting her former frenemy. At this point, I’m not sure if we can trust Mona especially as she talks to a mirror when Ali leaves the room.

As Mona catches up with Ali, she mentions a few things about BHU. BHU has a security system called Beacon Guard and later on we learn that the so called security system is moreso invading privacy instead of protecting students.

Then, there’s the prominent Hotchkiss family. Taylor Hotchkiss allegedly committed suicide the year before and Alison is the lucky faculty member that gets to stay in her house. Nolan Hotchkiss is the jerk that everyone hates to love. And then there the matriarch of the family, Claire Hotchkiss, who seems to be the overbearing mother who wants the best for her children, even if that means spying on them [and the rest of the population]. Claire also seems to take a liking to Alison as she reminds her of her late daughter.

If only Claire knew how much her son Nolan and the old Alison had in common – both manipulative without any regard to people’s feelings. Alison catches on to Nolan’s attitude and the people he’s hurting.

First off there’s Ava, the influencer. She has been having a tough time after her family abandoned her – her dad is on the run and her mom couldn’t handle it. Nolan is dating her in secret, but breaks her heart by sleeping with another girl. The only redeeming part about him is when you realize he did it to protect her and hide from his mother’s Beacon Guard.

Then there’s Caitlin, the girl who plans to follow her mother’s political footsteps. Nolan practically blackmails her into fake dating to make people believe they are a perfect power couple. This makes Nolan’s mom happy, but Caitlin’s real beau isn’t too thrilled. If Caitlin reveals the truth, then her mother’s future Presidential career is dunzo.

Lastly, we have Dylan, who is at BHU on a music scholarship. He’s aiming to make first chair, but he feels the pressure. Hailing from a small town, his choices aren’t exactly welcomed. His so called friendship with Nolan includes doing Nolan’s schoolwork and being at his every beck and call. Nolan even attempts to ruin Dylan’s relationship with a little seduction.

After Alison meets with the three separately, offering to help with their Nolan woes, the trio meets at a safe place in the woods. They discuss how they actually want to take Nolan down and contemplate murder. It gets a little graphic, especially when Caitlin pictures Nolan falling from the roof and landing on the fence spikes.

We then learn that Taylor Hotchkiss is actually alive and in hiding. The only one who knows is her brother, Nolan. Seems like the sibling duo is tired of being under their mother’s watchful eye and are trying to figure out why the security system is so invasive. At this point it doesn’t seem like Nolan is a huge douche after all.

Nolan he meets someone on one of the school’s rooftops to get more help with taking down the security system. It’s a safe place he says before revealing that his sister is alive. It isn’t that safe when the mysterious person pushes him off leading him to land directly through the fence spikes. This death was gruesome and definitely up there with Noel’s death.

While this takes place, Alison finds a little writing on her walls: “They’re watching.” How fitting is it that she hears sirens after her discovery?

While Ava looks upon the crime scene heartbroken and distraught, Caitlin is in disbelief that her murderous thought came to life. Dylan doesn’t help when he reminds her that it’s exactly what she pictured.

The last scene gives us a glimpse of Mona freaking out in the bathroom. She yet again talks to a mirror revealing the intricate security system. Seems like she knows more than she’s letting on.

TLDR: Alison and Mona thought they left the drama behind in Rosewood, but they were wrong. They now have to deal with a new group of friends who could possibly be linked to a new campus murder. A new age “A” is watching their every move.

Now Watching: You 1×6 |”Amour Fou” | Recap

Surprise bitches, Peach is not dead, much to Joe’s dismay. Beck’s bestie is on to him despite making her friends think she has a stalker. Joe never seems to finish the job on the first try.

The event has Beck by Peach’s side almost 24/7 and God forbid Joe would let that happen. So when Beck revealed she would be spending a few days with Peach at the Salinger estate in Greenwich, CT, Joe immediately went to his trusty friend the internet to find the place.

His road trip starts a little rocky when karma hits in the image of a deer. Joe swerves, crashes, and then wakes up the next morning daydreaming about his ex-girlfriend Candice. He gets the strength to move his car, but doesn’t get too far as a cop pulls him over. Of course, Joe is quick on his feet and makes up a story that seems to get him in the clear, or so he thinks.

Joe manages to sneak into the Salinger estate, but shortly after he faints from a concussion with a needle in his head. Candice enters his mind again and he’s reminded of a past getaway. He wakes up just as Peach and Beck get back.  He watches Peach watch Beck and has the audacity to call it perverse. After peeing in a jar on display, he creeps out of the house and is not slick at all.

Peach invites an old friend, Raj, to get a little drug party on, just like old times. While the three catch up, Joe looks for the gun Peach has hiding. He’s successful, but immediately hides under the bed as they enter the room to have a so called massage train. Raj passes out, while Peach gets a little handsy. Joe starts to see Candice and starts to compare his ex and his current in an inner monologue.

Drugs are not enough for Beck to forget she has a boyfriend and steps away from Peach’s advances. As she leaves, Raj and Peach hook up and Joe casually responds to Beck’s text from under the bed. Peach’s little game helps Beck make her decision about moving to Paris with the heiress. She turns her down and the whole conversation blows up. Beck storms out the door, while Peach scream, “You just use people.” And just like that, the friendship is over again.

Joe is proud of Beck, but his concussion doesn’t let him enjoy it because he has another flashback about Candice. But instead of a sweet memory, his mind goes back to the day he assumes Candice is cheating. She tries to explain herself, but he’s too jealous to understand. Once he gets back to the present, Peach knocks him out.

When Joe wakes up, Peach is hovering over him with her gun. He claims to be there to pick up Beck, but Peach finally realizes the Joe is her stalker. She also realizes that he’s wearing Benji’s watch. The two argue about who’s better for the aspiring writer and Joe gets in Peach’s head, “She’s never gonna do it. You can’t have her.” Joe runs and Peach shoots. She hits his leg and thinks he’s unconscious. But as Peach hovers yet again, he catches her off guard. The two struggle and a gun shot is heard in the distance.

Joe succeeded in removing another obstacle. He cleans his mess and uses what he knows about Peach to write a suicide letter. Joe drives away as police collect evidence at the Salinger estate. The same cop that stopped Joe earlier in the day happens to be at the crime scene as well. He actually ran the Joe’s license plate and his hunch about Joe is confirmed. I hope they find Joe’s urine on the shelf.

I also hope that Joe realizes that Beck is never going to forgive herself for what happened to Peach.

TLDR Version:

Peach is alive. Peach tries to seduce Beck with trips and kisses. Beck misses Joe. Joe pees in a jar. The bestie and bff argue about who’s better for Beck. Beck leaves Peach. Joe shoots Peach with her own gun and makes it look like a suicide. Joe is Beck’s night in shining armor again.

Now Watching: You 1×5 |”Living with the Enemy” | Recap

On this week’s episode of You, Joe and Beck have shacked up. Although we all know Joe is a little much when it comes to “protecting” Beck, he seems to have inspired her to start writing. One morning as Beck writes, she hears Paco’s parents arguing and Joe makes a comment about not meddling with people’s lives. :Insert eyeroll here:

Then comes girl’s night with Joe. Joe spends the night analyzing every flaw Beck’s friends have and something tells me he’ll be using it to his advantage. Peach is still trying to get Joe to confess to his crime of stealing, but Joe is just as sassy back.

Out of all of Beck’s friends, Annika seems to take a liking to Joe and vice versa, but it could also be their disdain for Peach Salinger that brings them together. Joe suggests that Annika post a throwback picture of her and Peach. She does it, but let’s just say it’s not a very flattering picture.

Later on, Joe’s dream date with Beck is interrupted when an anonymous user posts a very incriminating video of Annika. This just screams Peach. Joe is determined to stay one step ahead of Peach so he starts to follow her around and even takes up running. After following her around, his main task involves Peach’s laptop.

Joe comes home to Paco reading on the stairs. What’s new? Well this time, he’s reading a book on juvenile prosecuting. Seems that our little Paco is fed up with his stand-in father. Joe tries to convince Paco that he shouldn’t go the violent route and suggests a new book, “The Count of Monte Cristo”. “It’s about revenge and living with the enemy,” he says confidently.

The next night, Peach throws a party so she can introduce Beck to well-known agent, Roger Stevens. This earns her some points, but to be honest it may ruin her other opportunity from her adviser. While Beck mingles, Peach and Joe have a little snark fest. One thing they both agree on, Beck has no idea what’s best for her.

Joe finds an opportunity to steal Peach’s laptop and belongings. Instead of trying to guess the password, he looks through her other things and finds an old picture of Beck. Pervy Joe proceeds to masturbate to said picture in his bookstore basement. As he returns upstairs, he overhears Roger and Peach discussing Beck’s lack of writing expertise. He returns everything but the laptop and the picture.

He’s not sure how to crack the password, so he enlists Annika to get some information. All he gets is Annika venting about the label the whole world, especially Peach gave her. Beck saves him with a call warning him that Peach is searching his apartment for her laptop. After arguing back and forth with Beck in the middle, Joe suggests “Find my computer” and of course, the laptop is at Peach’s.

Peach storms out and Joe snaps at Beck for not coming to his defense. Joe then tells Beck what he overheard and boy was that the wrong move. Of course, this pushes Joe to find out what’s on the laptop. He cracks the password, “beckalicious”, and finds a folder with Beck’s initials. Joe realizes he’s not the only one watching Beck’s every move, when he sees photos and videos of his girlfriend. “Beck, you’ve got a stalker,” he says. The nerve of this guy. I mean, both of you are in love with Beck, so spare me the stalker talk.

Things fall into place for Joe’s revenge against Peach. Turns out Roger Stevens is a douchebag who doesn’t know how to keep it in his pants. After being shot down by Beck, he then confirms what Joe said about Peach. “Joe was right, you live to cut down your friends,” Beck says putting Peach in her place. For the first time, Beck walks away from Peach and it’s quite sad.

When Beck goes to apologize to Joe, their time is yet again interrupted by Peach. Beck (and Joe) comes running when Peach reveals she popped some pills before apologizing. But damn, Peach should be an actress with the show she pulls. Joe catches on, but Beck is still naive. Beck stays over at Peach’s and just like that Joe admits defeat.

Or not. Joe remembers why he took up running and finally catches up to Peach. He knocks her out with a rock and runs away with an inner monologue about murdering her. She never saw him coming.

When Joe comes home satisfied with what he did to Peach, he sees Paco hovering over his mother’s boyfriend. He overdosed (Paco’s doing), but Joe saves him. Too bad he’s ungrateful and starts beating Joe to a pulp. It’s karma. But the real karma is when Beck calls about Peach’s attack. “She’s alive?” he says in disbelief. She’s alive, bitches.

TLDR Version:

Joe and Beck are trying to live their best lives together, but there’s one person in the way. Peach Salinger. Through Joe’s stalking tactics, he finds that he isn’t the only one obsessed with Beck. Peach and Joe battle it out for Beck’s attention and while Peach is one step ahead, Joe takes the win by almost murdering the heiress.

Now Watching: You 1×4 |”The Captain”| Recap

After last week‘s 8 second catastrophe in bed, tonight’s episode starts off in Beck’s head. We’re normally used to hearing Joe’s voiceover, but this time Beck has a lot of say. After some very awkward silence between the two, Beck is saved by a text from “the Captain”. From the sounds of it, Beck has some sort of sugar daddy.

And since Joe has access to Beck’s messages, he’s having a bit of a meltdown. As Beck hides in the bathroom secretly texting “The Captain”, Joe storms off.

The next morning, Beck tries to find comfort in her friends. After some emojis of an eggplant and a hotdog, one question comes up, “Is he worth it?” and she seems to consider it. Later on, we see Beck text back that he is worth it. Honestly, he isn’t, but that’s none of my business.

Beck has more pressing matters with “The Captain”. After borrowing some shoes from Peach’s collection and practically lying to her best friend, Beck arrives at a motel to meet the man in question. Before he arrives, Beck decides it’s time for some self service, but “The Captain” comes just in time. While the two meet, Joe is creepin’ from another room. What’s new?

The POV changes back to Joe and we see how he reacts after his first time with Beck. Joe is stuck on the fact that Beck texted “love ya” back to another man. She didn’t even say that to Benji! Beck clearly doesn’t mean it, especially from her POV earlier in the episode, but it’s enough to convince Joe that he needs to get rid of another obstacle.

And here comes the twist. “The Captain” happens to be Beck’s dad! At least that’s how she greets him. All this time, we’ve been left to believe Beck’s dad overdosed. But here he is, taking his daughter to a Dickens festival. Joe and I have the same question, “Why is he your secret, Beck?”

Beck would rather be anywhere else than at a Dickens festival with her Dad and his other family. There is so much contrast between Beck’s sarcastic thoughts and what actually comes out of her mouth. When her little brat of a stepsister reveals that her Dad can’t provide for her anymore and the fact that a new Beck is on the way, all she does is smile. And jets off to the nearest bar.

While Beck lied to Peach about where she was going for the weekend, Peach happened to tell her own white lie. She went to the bookstore to find Joe and her copy of “Ozma of Oz”, but bookstore employee Ethan revealed that Joe is out of town. This prompts Peach to call her best friend and it’s not looking good for the bookstore manager.

Except we all know Joe can cover things up pretty easily. He reveals that he followed her through her post on social media. But honestly that doesn’t make it less creepy. The things you do for love I guess? But yet again, Joe somewhat becomes Beck’s knight in shining armor, protecting her from the awkwardness of being alone with her Dad’s other family.

Before dinner, Beck tells Joe the truth about her father and how he overdosed, got better and disappeared after relapsing. He was dead to her up until recently. At the family dinner, Beck is finally pushed to the edge when her father’s wife Nancy keeps butting in on her conversation. Instead of the sweet Beck that’s been sucking it up, she finally said what’s on her mind.

Joe finds Beck and the first thing out of his mouth is, “Do you want him dead?” Bro, that’s not an appropriate question, especially from you. Joe keeps saying things that aren’t helping and Beck tells him off. I’ve never been so proud.

Taking both Joe and Peach’s advise, Beck uses her interaction with her father as inspiration. She ends up writing something that moves the arrogant co-TA, Blythe. After, she visits Joe to apologize and have another bed encounter. Too bad Joe was not prepared. He didn’t have time to hide Beck’s journal, the phone, and the panties he stole. While they make out he strategically hides everything. Beck’s too distracted anyways.

The morning after, Beck officially apologize for being, in her words, “a hostile goose”. Beck likes herself better when she’s with Joe and that Lauv song began to play in my head. But as she praises Joe for not trying to be someone else, my inner feelings are screaming to not trust this dude. This is exactly why I don’t trust anyone.

While Joe redeems himself in bed with Beck, Peach still has trust issues. Because of this, Joe sneaks in and returns the book he stole. Apparently he never intended to keep it. Either way, if Peach keeps rejecting JoeBeck, Joe has a new next target and from the look of next week’s preview, Peach is definitely in danger.
