Be forewarned: I'm about to say some things about The Following that could generally be construed as "nice."
I almost wish I hadn't known the backstory to this episode before I watched it.
Just as much as loved ones are being used as puppets in A's game against the Liars, they're being used as puppets against us.
This episode was by no means perfect, but its display of consequences, small bit of humor, and setting of the table for a schism at least provide a faint glimmer of hope.
Spencer has seen that there's more to the mystery than the identity of a bully. There's something bigger and fiercer than texts and blackmail.
There were a lot of times in "Let Me Go" where law enforcement seemed more like a band of vigilantes rather than well-trained and organized professionals.
"Out of Sight, Out of Mind" tried my patience on more than one occasion, but the game is set up for what should be a more rewarding end to the season.
"Next!" might've been the quintessential episode of Bunheads.
Seriously, how can these agents/police constantly let people get away?
Everything about Leslie and Ben's nuptials was winsome and sweet, choreographed to manipulate your invested senses.
While "Hot Water" left us hanging with Spencer's development, we're sliding more pieces into place for a fast-approaching finale.
This is one of those weeks where I feel like Joey is the smartest person on this show. He's just hampered by being a small child.
How Spencer continues to be the best, I don't know. But the rest of the Liars really helped her out this week by lowering the bar of excellence.
It's almost like The Following is aware that this is the point where we decide whether to keep watching or delete the series recording from our DVRs.
