Now Watching: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists “Lost and Found” | 1×6 Recap

Tonight’s episode kicked off right where it ended. Caitlin was rushed to the hospital, as her two friends were on edge knowing that Mason could possibly still be around watching them.

But the show must go on if Ava wants to get her Vogue internship. As she puts her final touches on the fashion show, she gets some help from Ali and a new character who absolutely despises her – or moreso what her dad did to his family.

Dylan and Ava get word that Caitlin is awake, but Dana is annoying AF and they can’t get anywhere near her to talk to her. Turns out the Senator (aka Caitlin’s mom) is visiting which explains the high security. Caitlin confronts her mom about her cheating and she wants her to turn a cheek and keep it from her other mother. That’s such a bad position to put your daughter in!

While Alison does real faculty stuff, Mona takes on the duty of finding Taylor at the camper. Taylor isn’t there, but Mona decides to stick around the camper. Good thing she does, because she finds Taylor’s secret Beacon Guard program. Mona, the perfect hacker that she is, finds that the little system can find the location of students and faculty.

Alison and her instincts find Taylor at the cemetery. Of course she would. After warning her to stay back, she somehow convinces Taylor to trust her mom and show her that she’s alive. Claire is shocked, but it turns to be a happy reunion.

Since the road where Caitlin was hit was closed for the day, Ava and Dylan make it a mission to search for Mason’s phone at night before the fashion show. Ava falls into the sewers and Dylan follows. They are met by something creeping around only to meet Dana Booker at the end of the tunnel who was Mason’s phone. The phone proved the opposite of what they hoped. He was at a crew party, the night of Nolan’s death. I wanted to slap the smug look off of Dana’s face, tbh.

Navigating through Taylor’s Beacon Guard, Mona sees that Mason is in Beacon Heights earlier than expected. It proves to be accurate as he pays a visit to Caitlin. But he does something unexpected and apologizes, “Being Nolan is not who I am.” Mason claims he was only Nolan’s insurance policy. But it would be too easy if Mason was the killer.

Dylan has an epiphany and thinks the person torturing them isn’t the killer, but someone who thinks they killed Nolan. Their new target is Dana Booker. Good luck with that!

The final scene brings us back to Mona in Taylor’s camper. It seems someone is at Mona’s apartment and that someone is the deceased Nolan Hotchkiss.

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 “Sex, Lies and Alibis” (1×2) |A recap

The episode began right where last week ended, at the crime scene. Among the crowd, Ava was devastated at the sight of her (ex) boyfriend. Her two fake friends, Dylan and Caitlin, tried to approach her, but she wanted nothing to do with them. Nolan’s demise hit every detail of Caitlin’s vision, so I understand Ava.

Three days later, we find Ava sulking, Dylan having nightmares, and Caitlin on a diet. However, both Caitlin and Dylan have significant others to lean on, while Ava doesn’t seem to have anyone, but a bottle of jack.

Ali is on a mission to figure out who left that  message on her wall. Her repair call is cut short when she receives a message from Nolan to meet him on the roof of Thorne hall. Clearly, someone is trying to frame her/freak her out – unless the dead can text now.

Ali teams up with Mona to figure out what happened. Mona is in “beautiful mind” mode as she tries to figure out who snapped – something about allowing Nolan to go to BHU even though his profile didn’t meet her algorithms and had red flags. Ali slaps the equation out of Mona and everything becomes about key lime pie. Mona is creeping me out, but I love how she calls Ali out to quit trying to be something she isn’t.

Dylan and Caitlin think it’s finally time to confront Ava and convince her that they had nothing to do with Nolan’s murder. Ava is hesitant, but she plays along for Nolan’s funeral. They’re the perfect posse grieving their fearless leader. Also, it was quite a fashionable funeral.

A new character comes into play, Nolan’s childhood best friend and Caitlin’s ex, Mason. Mason reminisces about the past and then offers to be an alibi for Caitlin. This comes out of nowhere! While the two converse, Dylan tries to find Nolan’s stash of secrets, but only meets a letter. Someone beat him and his newfound friends to it.

The three perfectionists show up to Nolan’s vigil and talk like no one’s listening. Someone chimes in, “It’s just like how you imagined it.” If I learned one thing from PLL, it’s that you can’t trust anyone as there are eyes and ears everywhere.

As Alison prepares to return to school, an unexpected visitor shows up at her home – Claire Hotchkiss. After losing her son, she felt like being close to her daughter by breaking into her old home. Claire reveals how close Taylor and Nolan were and even gives Ali some advice,”You’re a survivor Alison, at all costs. That’s what you need to teach them.” Claire definitely knows more than she’s letting on.

After Mona’s breakdown and change in personality throughout the episode, we get to see her open up, or at least try to. PLL fans would probably enjoy the 2nd to last scene because we see Mona call Hanna and reveal that Haleb has a baby. But that’s not the only bombshell – Spoby eloped. My heart soared!

In the last scene, it’s the first day back to school and the investigation continues. Ava seems to break down her walls to let Dylan and Caitlin in, but things go south when the three are pulled from class by the new head of security, Dana Booker. She asks where they were the night of Nolan’s murder and Ali saves the day. Security was turned off around her home that night so she had the perfect alibi. I guess you can say she’s still a pretty little liar. “Bring it on, bitch.”

TLDR: Someone really had it out for Nolan and his perfect posse. Dylan and Caitlin start becoming real friends, while Ava has trust issues. Ali lies to save her and her students, while Mona likes key lime pie and equations.

Looks I Love: 2019 Grammys

Award season continued tonight, but this time it was the musician’s time to shine at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. Here are my fave looks of the night!

Bebe Rexha

Nominated for two Grammys tonight, including Best New Artist, Bebe Rexha stepped out in a red Monsoori gown. The gown was mostly tulle and looked super fun to flaunt around the red carpet. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus walked the red carpet in a black, over sized pre-fall 2019 Mugler suit. She looked like the chic rock star that she is. Later on in the night, she joined Shawn Mendes’ performance for “In My Blood” and paid tribute to Dolly Parton – she killed both performances. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Maren Morris

One of today’s biggest country stars, Maren Morris walked the red carpet in a sheer floral gown by Galia Lahav. Not only was “The Middle” singer nominated for 5 awards, but she also got the chance to perform alongside the legendary Dolly Parton. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa sparkled in a silver, mermaid-style Versace number, featuring a long train. She was all smiles on the red carpet after receiving the news that she won the award for Best Dance Recording for “Electricity”. However, I bet she was even more ecstatic after receiving the award for Best New Artist. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Let me know which looks and performances you loved from the 2019 Grammys!

Looks I Love: 2019 Golden Globes

Tonight, the Golden Globes kicks off the 2019 red carpet season. So many of 2018’s biggest stars stepped out to represent their work and for many it was their first time. Soft colors seemed to be popular throughout the night and were among my favorites!

Kiki Layne

The If Beale Street Could Talk star made her red carpet debut in a custom blush pink Dior Haute Couture gown. The tulle, off-the-shoulder dress featured a corset type top which I absolutely adored. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Regina King

Regina King accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk. And she did it in absolute style. She wore a strapless, rose pink gown by Alberta Ferreti and shined in sequins. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Taraji P. Henson

Is there a time where Taraji doesn’t slay the red carpet? She rocked the red carpet in a low-cut, emerald green Vera Wang gown. The cinched belt showed off her figure, the jewels sparkled, and the hair and make-up was as fierce as she was. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Emma Stone

Emma is forever a favorite. Nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Favourite, she stepped out in a soft pink Louis Vuitton gown. The dress featured some elaborate embroidery and as always, she looked like a classic Hollywood actress. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Constance Wu

This was such a big night for the Crazy Rich Asians star and Best Actress Nominee. As the first Asian actress to be nominated in the category after 50+ years, she stepped out looking gorgeous in a nude Vera Wang dress. She was one of the many stars who rocked tulle and I loved the little hint of color with the orange belt.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Gemma Chan

In 2018, Gemma Chan became one of my new favorite fashion icons. She stepped out in a petrol blue Maison Valentino Couture dress. She exuded grace and elegance just like her Crazy Rich Asians character, Astrid Leung. Her look was my favorite of the night.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Kristen Bell

The Good Place star looked like a classic Hollywood star in a low-cut, blush pink dress by Zuhair Murad.  Her and her husband, Dax Shepard, served some looks together. But my absolute favorite was just watching Kristen get ready through her IG. She’s such a relatable nerd.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Kaley Cuoco

The Big Bang Theory star strolled the red carpet with her husband, Karl Cook. The cobalt blue and white dress by Monique L’Huillier also featured pockets which is woman’s absolute dream when it comes to formal wear.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga looked like she was channeling Cinderella in a baby blue gown by Valentino. The train appeared to be at least 4-ft long, so she definitely had to have a lot of assistance down the red carpet. Joined by her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper, she presented the first award of the night.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Danai Gurira

This dress was absolute fire – literally. The custom Rodarte gown was inspired by Zimbabwe’s national flower, the Flame Lily. She joined her Black Panther cast mates as they celebrated their Best Motion Picture nomination.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Best Dressed Men

Justin Hartley is known for his role on This Is Us, but i’m over here admiring the former Green Arrow in a black and white Brunello Cucinelli suit.

Richard Madden won Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama series. And my heart melted for Rob Stark/Prince Charming in his Dior suit.

Michael B. Jordan rocked a custom Burberry suit and he never fails in a suit.r23s v

Timothee Chalamet was an absolute cutie in Louis Vuitton. He rocked that bedazzled harness!

Manny Jacinto had to be included in my list because his character on The Good Place is a homie and he cleans up very well in a Boss suit.

Who were your faves of the night?

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.

Looks I Love: 2018 American Music Awards

When I think of the American Music Awards, I think fun and bold and a little less casual than other awards shows. This year there were a lot of dresses/gowns proving my previous statement to be slightly wrong, but you know I love when today’s hottest stars step out on the red carpet. So without further ado, here are a few of my favorite looks:

Leighton Meester

The former Gossip Girl star stepped onto the red carpet in a black and white Sonia Rykiel gown. I swear Blair Waldorf would be proud. She pulled back her hair to show off the halter neckline and paired the velour number with a black clutch. When she’s not presenting awards, you can watch her on ABC’s Single Parents. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Amber Heard

Amber Heard has had a busy few weeks promoting the indie film Her Smell as well as the much anticipated DC movie, Aquaman. She looked like royalty in a black tulle Ralph & Russo Couture dress. The gown is straight from the designer’s Autumn Winter 2018 line, but it seems a dash of metallic gold paillettes were added. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Carrie Underwood

The country music superstar looked so beautiful walking the carpet, as she made her first appearance after announcing her pregnancy. She was all smiles in a black Steven Khalil gown with gold embellishments. Her smile was even brighter as she accepted the AMA for Favorite Female Country Star. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Kelsea Ballerini

Out of all the looks on this list, I think this one fit the AMAs perfectly. To me, the AMAs are fun and flirty and while gowns are beautiful, this little dress was perfect for the young country singer. Before presenting alongside the Chainsmokers, she wore this black and yellow sequined ensemble from the Spring/Summer 2018 Nicolas Jebran line. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez was definitely a hottie in a hot pink dress by Georges Chakra. The gown from his Fall/Winter 2018-2019 line features a long cape as well as a black belt to hold it together. And J. Lo held it down looking as fierce as ever. Aside from new music, you can expect to see her in the film Second Act this December. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Dua Lipa

The English pop star is making waves and records everywhere! Before taking the stage to perform “One Kiss” and “Electricity”, Dua Lipa was a vision in white on the red carpet with a mermaid style gown by Giambattista Valli. She may not have won an award, but she wins everything else. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Vanessa Hudgens

One of my favorites, Vanessa Hudgens, looked pretty in pink with a Cushnie dress. The rose colored dress came straight from the runway from the Spring 2019 collection. Instead of going with some long locks, the fashionista went with a short bob and made sure to show off the low-cut neckline. Vanessa is also co-starring in Second Chance this December! | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

The Men

Rami Malek will soon be seen as Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody and tonight he looked great in a Givenchy suit.

Thomas Rhett was a looker in a royal blue fitted suit.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Khalid rocked the carpet in a pinkMoschino ensemble before performing “Eastside” with Halsey and Benni Blanco!

Quavo of Migos came through drippin’ in Dolce & Gabbana as he walked solo on the red carpet.

The Couples

Cardi B & Offset

The married couple walked the red carpet in Dolce & Gabbana. Cardi B showed off so much personality in the floral gown, while Offset stepped back and let his lady steal the show.

G-Eazy & Halsey

I will always love these two together. Both G-Eazy and Halsey (in a Redemption dress) are always so stylish on the red carpet solo, but when they’re together it’s a whole other level. They are goals.

Send me your favorite looks of the night!

Adele
