Pretty Little Liars 3x03: Deal with the Devil

On tonight's PLL, we had crazy families, relationships falling apart, unlikely alliances, and all around paranoid people. So, the usual. 

    Aria pretended to be bffls with creepy Jenna for the first half of the episode in order to figure out what crazy girl was up to. She did lead them to the right place though, where the liars (well, Hanna really) finally confronted Jenna about her ability to see. More on that in a bit. Right now, however, I feel the need to lecture Aria on her "top-secret sleuthing skills." Aria, sweetie, I heart you. But honey, I feel like I have to remind you that Jenna is NOT blind anymore. Therefore, when you are "surreptitiously" attempting to read her secret notes behind her back, remember she can see you, despite her sketchy glasses covering her newly re-acquired eye site.  Moral of the story, be more careful next time. Also, your BF gets extra points this week for being so cute and helping your Mama and bffl Em out when they are in a bind. Speaking of Ella, Sister totes thought  that she was Jenna tonight mid-eppie. Sigh, dear Sister, is such a PLL amateur. It's cute, really. 

Turning to Emily:
    Em spent all episode worrying about her test score being too good for her test performance. During said freak out, Hanna has one of the best lines of the episode: "Don't go all Spencer on your grades." Love Spencer, but so true Hanna, so true. Anyways she and Ella get out of hot water when Ezra saves the day in his cute adorable Ezra way. Good job, Ezra, scoring big points with your GF's friends and family. Emily also decides to become a bad-ass in this eppie, saying she will not back down to this new A. Considering new A likes to play with bones, body bags and teeth, I don't see this gung-ho attitude lasting much longer. But, good for you, Em, good for you. 

    Speaking of bad-asses, by the end of the eppie, Hanna is done ignoring Jenna's secret eyesight and screams "No Mas!" at the top of her lungs before jumping in front of Jenna's car. Han, sweetie, go you, but you don't have the best track record with cars, so best be careful. Speaking of which, Hanna wins the award for best one liners tonight. I already mentioned the one about Spence and her grades. Later, when Caleb tried to say that Mona hit her with her car, Hanna says technically she went over the car, not under it. She's quite the optimist. Also, later, before confronting Jenna, Hanna states that "We're lying to everybody, everybody's lying to us," to which I just think of the title of the show and roll my eyes. #Duh. In other Hanna news, Haleb it looks like it is on the rocks. To which I say :(, because I find them cute. Also, Mona totally lost her shit at Caleb and went berserk. Oops. Oh yeah, speaking of crazy, Lucas has gone all buckwild on everyone and is setting fire to things and visiting the nuthouse. Maybe he should "visit" there for a few weeks and reclaim some of his sanity and cute shyness that I miss. 

    Spencer is not having happy times at the house of Hastings (so what else is new). Her mom has taken on Garrett's case and Melissa is keeping secrets and being super sketchy (so what else is new x2). During some super secret sleuthing (she really needs to give her pal Aria some lessons), Spence calls multiple hospitals and hotels to track down Melissa's whereabouts in June. The kid is good at this sh*t, and she figures out Melissa and her mom are lying to her and Melissa had a miscarriage long before she pretended to. Hmm, gotta heart those Hastings, always honest, always supportive. Thank God for Toby in Spencer's life, even though his sexy shirtless self was not there this week. Hope we see him and his abs next Tuesday!

Top Tweets: 

Andy Swift: Beard? Garbage fire? Devil-may-care attitude? Lucas, you have become a homeless man-child. 

Starry Mag: Dude, you tried to set fire to my girlfriend! - Caleb 

Andy Swift: I feel like Torrey DeVitto is on every show I watch these days. I half expect to see her anchoring the nightly news.    (Me too, dude).

Norman Buckley: I like that Mona has friends in the nuthouse. 

Princess Problems: Silly aria. I'm sure Ezra has helped you perform many times. 

Norman Buckley: I'd like to see Mona get out of the nuthouse and transfer to secret life high school, just to change things up.

Princess Problems: I know the next secret on ...Caleb's dad is Robert Kardashian too! The middle part gave it away.  (HAHAHA)

Pretty Little Liars: RT if you've ever "untangled spaghetti." (Whatever that is.) 

@ElderPoptart:  I miss nerdy sweet Lucas, but I'm fascinated by Sour Patch Kid Lucas.

@RobynRossTVG: Bitch can drive! 

Norman Buckley: Jenna has yet to relearn the use of a rear-view mirror. 

Norman Buckley: Where the hell did Jenna get that vintage Mustang?

Shay Mitchell: "No mas!"

PLL: "4 Girls, One Bathroom:" Episode 3x02

The credit for tonight's title goes to the one and only Andy Swift for tweeting that line during the episode. We'll get to more great tweets later on. The bathroom seemed to be the recurring theme during tonight's episode though because the girls' new rendezvous point is the bathroom. Literally, all the time, they meet there to chat. Whatevs, apparently they feel safe their? IDK.

In other news:

  • Emily needs to pass some tests in order to graduate with her friends. To solve this problem, Aria decides to force Ezra and Em into an awkward tutoring scenario that was highly uncomfortable for both them and viewers. 
  • The tutoring went well, though, until Em started experiencing creepy "That night" flashbacks mid-test. Oops. However, Ella was there to save the day and finish her test for her. I don't see this ending well. It was nice for Ella to look out for Em, but she could totes be fired for that. 
  • Ella's daughter is also up to no good, or was when she was a baby 15 year old with Alison. Considering what happened to Aria, I don't blame her for freaking out about her dad. However, I do blame Byron for is actions. Making Aria apologize to Meredith? REALLY BYRON? Great parenting, siding with your ex-whore over your daughter. 
  • Aria, meanwhile, killed it tonight with the one-liners:
    • "Is she blinder than she was last year?"
    • "Yeah, I don't think my dad is going to be scrapbooking with Ezra anytime soon."
    • "I'm ready to hang a sign- bitch can see!"
  • Turning to our fave blonde liar, Hanna does Mona's makeup, which finally gets her to talk and say (in a sketchy voice, of course) "You're getting them again, aren't you?"
  • Caleb is attempting to be the best, cute, supportive boyfriend and goes with Hanna to see Mona after getting upset that she was lying to him about going to Dr. Sullivan. Hanna, of course doesn't appreciate this, and Caleb's suspicion rises when he runs into Wren. 
  • Dear Wren, 
    • I hate your stinkin' guts. Please stop attempting to mess up the PLL's relationships with their cute boyfriends. I do not like your home-wrecking self. However, as long as you keep staying away from Spoby, I will remain silently annoyed and won't press the matter further.
  • Turning to my fave couple, Spoby, I was very pleased that in tonight's episode we got to see hott for each other Spoby as well as crime fighting detective Spoby. I personally enjoy both because they are great partners. Also, that couch scene was really hott. Damn Mrs. Hastings for ruining that. Awkwardd "hi Mom!" moment. 
  • Mama Hastings also yelled at Spencer for visiting Garrett to try and find out more info. Am I the only one who thought that she was going to try and give Spence an abstinence talk during this scene? That would have been highly amusing.
  • Detective Spoby discovered something very important- Jenna is no longer blind (Bitch can see). The liars prove this with an earring at the end of the episode, in, once again, a bathroom. They decide to keep it a secret though, and use it to their advantage. Our good old plotting PLL's are def back in action!
  • Thanks for reading! 
Now to my fave new section, Top Tweets:
  • Andy Swift: Ezra has worn 75% less vests since he stopped teaching at Rosewood High. I've been keeping track, and my math is NEVER wrong.  
  • @mojotastic: Loving that almost all the girls have people to visit in jails or mental institutions. They need better social circles. 
  • Norman Buckley: "why are you asking me about my blind sister all the time?"
  • @LyndseyNadeau: No big deal, Jenna's just guarding the school like a "blind" gargoyle.
  • Norman Buckley: Caleb is such an ideal boyfriend. "I will support you in your neurosis."
  • Andy Swift: Wtf, Aria? This show isn't called "Pretty Little Girls Who Suddenly Decide To Start Telling The Truth."  (HAHHAHHAHAHAHAH my fave)
  • Norman Buckley: "i'd love to, Jenna, but you're just too weird."
  • Sister: "Why are they getting all of the OTH nut jobs?"

PLL 3x01: It Happened That Night

In true Pretty Little Liars fashion, last night's episode managed to creep me out from the very beginning. I thought that we might have a little emotional solace, but that would be too easy, wouldn't it?

Highlights of last night's episode:
  • How I spent my summer vacation:
    • by Spencer Hastings: College classes and ogling my hott boyfriend's abs (we'll get to that later, believe me it was the best part for me)
    • by Hanna Marin: Cooking classes with the other half of Haleb and secretly visiting my ex-bff in the sanatorium 
    • by Aria Montgomery: Photography class and spending time in your ex-teacher/boyfriend's apartment. Oh, and dealing with your parents divorce (Surprise! Byrella is no more). 
    • by Emily Fields: Building houses  in Haiti and attempting to drink away the memory of your dead ex girlfriend(s). 
  • Seems like these girls had a busy summer! 
  • Reunited, they have a sleepover (which, with these girls, doesn't seem like a good idea) but they have one anyways. Which, of course goes horribly. 
  • Someone (new A-duh) lures wasted/blackout Emily to Ali's grave, where it was already dug up. Naturally, the girls attempt to cover it up because no one saw them, right? Yeah, right, that would be too simple and un-dramatic. 
  • Ezria is still alive and kicking, and he has been there for her all summer. They share an adorable reenactment kiss of their first one. They also plan a special dinner together, which Ella oddly enough ends up being the third wheel on. Awkward turtle times. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at that dinner. 
  • Haleb is also doing well, and they learned how to make dong po over summer break (whatever that is). 
  • Spoby is happy as well! Yay! Toby has been using Spencer's shower, since he got a loft where the water is not working. Spencer has no problem with this because clearly having a sexy boy with an eight-pack strutting around your room shirtless is not a problem. I thoroughly enjoyed this seen and seeing Keegan Allen (Toby) shirtless the whole time and so did America apparently because #shirtlessToby trending for the text 40 minutes. Ahh, bliss. 
  • In other Spencer news, she has been recreating the creepy A lair on her computer to attempt to figure things out. She and the other girls meet up at The Lost Woods to think. 
  • The girls all realize something doesn't add up, and they finally admit to Emily that the lair was taken down by someone, which obviously isn't good. 
  • Cue creepy music, or in this case Spence's car alarm. The girls run outside and find her car covered in pictures of them with the shovel and by Ali's grave. Crap. 
  • Cue the inevitable A text. Something about Mona playing with dolls and the new A playing with body parts. Lovely, sound like new A should just leave them alone and go to medical school. 
From now on I will be adding this new section to my PLL reviews. This is entitled: "Best Tweets of the Night." (There are too many good tweets to not discuss). 
  • Keegan Allen: "Look  trends worldwide - as you eat a pint of ice cream." says my mother. (HAHHAHAHHAHA)
  • Andy Swift: I've decided that at least one of Toby's abs have to be "A." 
  • Sunny Jacob: By now I’d seriously be like “Emily, you can’t sit with us”. Talk about a liability. 
  • Andy Swift: If I was friends with these girls, I would never go to their sleepovers. I don't like getting dead. 
  • Lucy Hale: So, I mean I don't know how many of you wear a bikini with an overall jumper, but aria did. With knee high hooker boots.
  • Lucy Hale: EM show us your boobs!!!!!!
Alright that's all for tonight. Cya next week for (hopefully) more shirtless Toby and PLL awesomeness. Thanks!
