Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, aptly named “My Name is Trouble,” showcased the girl’s deviant ways, A’s torturous ways (is this a surprise anymore?), and creepy, creepy Jenna. I know I don’t often comment about the way a show was shot, but because of my field of work, I have an eye for that kind of thing. “My Name Is Trouble” was shot beautifully. There was a specific candle scene that I will talk about later that was just amazing. I love it when an episode is so visually stimulating (and yes this includes shirtless Toby and sexy Jason DiLaurentis along with the actual camera shots!).
The episode starts with the girls in the movie theater discussing Ian when a guy in a hoodie runs after them. But, it’s all Spencer’s dream! AHH! At the Marin household, Han’s dad (yes, I call her Han now, just deal with it) is staying in Rosewood for a while. I am interested to see where this goes. And Aria is starting a class at Hollis, obviously to get closer to Ezra. Hmm, probably not the best idea.
At school, Toby shows up to fill out paperwork. He’s starting a new job for Jason DiLaurentis. Oh boy. There’s a cabinet maker who wants to hire him but he needs his own car so he needs money. Han is bored because she can’t hang out with any of her friends, so she reunites with Lucas (in a friendship sort of way). Lucas tells Han that Caleb is staying at his house, and reluctantly agrees to hang out with her. Where is Caleb these days, by the way? I’d like another shirtless Caleb scene!
At Hollis, Aria and Ezra can hold hands in public. Love this. But of course, someone is always watching. Jackie (remember, Ezra’s ex?) looks on as they kiss. Oh man. And of course, Creepy Jenna is in Aria’s pottery class! So creepy! Speaking of creepy, Spencer has an encounter with Jason (who is sweaty and good looking) where he says he’s the only one living in the house. Later, Spencer is home alone and scared of Jason. His flowing hair and beautiful muscles wouldn’t harm you, Spence! (Haha, they might…) Then, it’s flashback time! Ali is upset and wants to come over when Jason is partying. She starts crying and sees her reflection in the window. This was a beautiful scene (and foreshadowing perhaps if you’ve read the books?) A little later, Spencer asks Melissa to sleep in the house with her. She asks if Melissa would protect her over someone who’s not her (i.e. Ian). Spencer tells her this story about how she helped her when they were young and Melissa doesn’t even remember. Ugh. What a mean sister!
Wait, there’s more! You can read the rest of the recap on TVChick.com.
