‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Welcome To Makeout City

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Welcome To Makeout City

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars was probably one of the most intense ones to date. Also, it was filled with A LOT of making out. Saying I loved it would be a vast understatement. Seriously, be still my “Ezria” loving heart. But I digress. “Make It Stick” featured some disturbing discoveries about Jason, some interesting/sexy dreams, relationship complications for Emily and some heartbreaking Hanna and Caleb moments. Oh and even though creepy Jenna was just in a couple of scenes, she was truly and awfully creepy.

The episode starts with some hot and heavy Aria/Ezra making out turned into Aria/Jason making out. Of course, it was a dream. Hotness. Meanwhile, Em and Han stand guard outside the morgue. Spencer apparently couldn’t find the missing page in Ali’s report. Then, the girls see Jenna talking about getting the bandages off and seeing. Whoa. Talk about a crazy direction to go in. More »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: A Trip To The Morgue

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: A Trip To The Morgue

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars “Save the Date” was quite intense. The girls took a trip to the morgue to try and figure out Ali’s death, Em has quite a physical/health set back and we learn more about shady Garrett and creepy Jenna and what they might be hiding. And I forgot to mention that “Ezria” fans like me were a tad disappointed by this episode, and especially by the preview for the next episode, but I have faith that they will be together in the end. This episode felt to me like people were trying to get closure — Hanna’s parents for sure (more on that later) and the girls about Ali’s death. But one thing is for sure, this season is certainly ramping up to something big.

The episode starts with the girls talking outside Em’s house (because she had to go to her old house to fix the alarm) and they see Garrett’s car. He’s going into Jenna’s house. The girls get out to follow — love Han’s eye roll here. Jenna opens the window shade dressed all scantily as her and Garrett make out. The girls are shocked. As the audience, we obviously knew this episodes ago but it was still a nice reveal.

The next morning, Em working out like crazy to prepare for her big meet with the Danby scout. But she’s clearly in a lot of pain. Something (ahem the previews) tell me she’s going to end up in the hospital… More »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Bitchy Mona Alert!

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Bitchy Mona Alert!

Last night’s Pretty Little Liars episode, “Never Letting Go,” centered around relationships — parental relationships, the girls’ relationships and significant others/possible significant others. Jason DiLaurentis also takes on an even bigger (sadly non-shirtless) role. I thought the episode set up some very interesting things for the future. Are the girls able to let go of Ali? Clearly, not quite yet. More »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Shades of Veronica Mars

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Shades of Veronica Mars

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, cleverly titled “The Devil You Know,” focused a lot on A. After this episode, there are many more questions than answers, and some people emerged as a bit shady and mysterious. Aria seems to have a slightly wandering eye, her brother is into some bad stuff (not drugs though, as I suspected) and Spencer’s mom FINALLY realizes what a total awful parent she’s been all this time. It was an intense episode. I really enjoyed the way the last scene played out (and how creepy it was!) and it was another episode that was beautifully shot with a scene reminiscent of the opening credits. And one of my favorite couples reunited! More »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: You’re Never Really Dead In Rosewood

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: You're Never Really Dead In Rosewood

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars titled “Blind Dates,” had some huge, crazy intense moments, a new love interest (maybe) for Aria, and well, someone dies. Spoiler alert! But in Rosewood, we never know if someone is truly dead. We assume Alison is because they found her remains but then who is torturing the girls? Of course, A strikes again in a big way in “Blind Dates,” while one girl has a major breakthrough. I loved the intensity level of this episode. It was drama in its finest form. I also always love when there’s a creepy woods scene and there was a great one in last night’s episode. More »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: The Return of Creepy Jenna

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: The Return of Creepy Jenna

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!). More »

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Recap: Lots of Goodbyes, Except for Samara

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Lots of Goodbyes, Except for Samara

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, called “The Goodbye Look,” was heartbreaking, heart-wrenching, and had all the makings of the hit drama I know and love. There were major developments for Aria and Ezra that I will talk about later. I know she is supposed to get another love interest, so I fear that this might be the end for a bit, but there was a rather amazing make-out session that would say otherwise. Who knows? This episode also focused a lot on a new guy back in town, Jason DiLaurentis. Ali’s brother did appear last season, but he has been re-cast. The character is back and creepier than ever. The episode also gives a lot of clues into Ali’s life and disappearance and who A might be. More »
