Pretty Little Liars S04E06: "Under the Gun"


Rosewood is filled with perils heretofore unseen outside of a horror movie or Twin Peaks. Despite its status as a small suburban town, it seems to have enough abandoned warehouses, dilapidated structures, and scary hospitals to house even Batman's lesser villains. Upon sexual maturity, any male denizen seems to have taken a class in pedo like a Jewish boy studying for a bar mitzvah. And, of course, there's the spectre of our heroes' late friend that hangs among them in the form of digital bullying and actually-maybe-not-I-don't-know appearances.

So when Spencer says Ravenswood is "Creepyville," that says something.

Pretty Little Liars took some time this week to hip its fanbase to the upcoming Ravenswood, which is not so much a spin-off as it is a supernatural series that seems to run in parallel and be loosely connected to the misadventures of the ladies of Rosewood, PA. Spencer and Toby were our hosts.

The Toby storyline is killing me but, happily, we only had to pinch our noses and swallow the smallest bit of his silliness before diving headlong into Ravenswood's weird little town. The only good that came out of mentioning the search for his mother in this episode was that it led to a conversation comparing A to the bird that's thus far given Spencer everything about Cicero, Grunwald, and the mysterious phone number. Information from A and the parrot come from vague and unreliable sources.

Just about everything you need to know about Ravenswood appeared in the short montage as Spencer and Toby arrived in town to find the old sorority marm Grunwald: one-person funerals, pigeons that make raven sounds, a color palette so saturated the entire town looks black and white. People ignored Spencer on the street but were willing to spy on her through a window. Toby's ghostly/vampire features fit right in here.

And it seems, just for Spencer's visit, the town was putting on a pageant of the bizarre. Sure, the creepy spies behind blinds and the piercing eyes of the townsfolk were weird enough. But the townies also seemed to revel in ignoring outsiders or shirking them with cryptic and almost anachronistic phrasing. The gardener at the house Spencer and Toby mistakenly visited said something about only answering to the master of the house, like he was on Downton Abbey. But Ravenswood really rolled out the Tim Burton carpet by also sounding a choral chant throughout the city that had the entire town gathering at an angel statue/tomb in what looked to be the town square, and everyone looked pensive, even in a state of glorified awe. Just another Tuesday in Ravenswood.

The trip ended with a Shana and Jenna sighting and one last message from the town: a dead bird falling from the sky and splatting against Spencer's windshield. The entire sequence felt a little inserted, especially since Spencer didn't get anything from the adventure except low blood-sugar. At one point, it was literally Toby pointing to weird stuff in the area. Ravenswood is a weird place, man. Okay, we've got it, show.

What the scene did successfully was remove the only real brain in a week when the Liars were more threatened than they've been all season. Ashley's storyline finally came to a head and, for the first time in a while, I felt like the suspense and anxiety with the waiting game really worked. The disruption of the Marin house, including Tom, was palpable, as everyone operated on an emotional setting of 11 that made what's been a very disparate family almost clannish. Did you see how quickly Caleb was tossed out? Hanna's reminiscing on the dried-up pond might've been a little heavy-handed, but for the most part, I could feel the intensity and pressure, something laughably lacking in the Fields house in the wake of Emily's terrible lying and fuel for social services.

Aria also had her own problems as the Ezria rumor started to spread and, in the mouths of babes, became gossip not about how their teacher took advantage of a student, but how Aria must be a slut for sleeping with him. I don't have any scientific research on how these rumors start and are received by high school students but, unfortunately, blaming the woman for an unholy pairing sounds honest to our society, so I wasn't terribly surprised by the storyline. However, that Ezra hasn't gotten any flack for this (yet) is a little disturbing. Though maybe that's because I think Ezra is a creepy pedo with a little-boy face who looks even creepier in his sweater-vests. I'm saying I might be biased.

This thread also allowed for Mike to step up and start talking about protection, about how he should've stood up for Aria and been a brother to him. It was the second time this season that a sibling made a point to mention protection to one of the Liars, which makes me think that Mike might be closer to Melissa than A. But at the same time, things would really fall into place if Mike was A. "Mommmm! Mike's been cyber-bullying me!" "I know, honey. He's been cyber-bullying everyone. Can you rub some calamine on my bee stings?"

With everyone else out of town or absorbed in their own dramas, Emily was the lone Liar trying to thwart A. Poor, stupid Emily. Mistakes galore. First, her logic that Hanna couldn't tell anyone about A but she could was ridiculous. You can't get away from A on a technicality. That's complete foolishness. You aren't playing Monopoly. Second, A is always watching you. Like, all of the time. Why would you ever think that leaving something anonymously that could incriminate anyone associated with A wouldn't get replaced with something that'd get you in trouble? The video itself was a little corny, but the imagery was interesting: a figure in a red coat wearing an Emily mask (lesson: don't let kooky strangers take molds of your face) standing in front of Rosewood's (dwindling) population. The "guilty" card like we were watching A's homage to "Subterranean Homesick Blues" was a little over-the-top, but the creepiness factor was right on the money.

It wasn't an episode full of answers, but it certainly set a tone. There's an air of hopelessness among the Liars this season, something echoed by Mona (oh, hey, Mona's back) when she spoke to Emily about finding her empty RV. "We all go up in flames." A has everyone on a tighter leash these days, and isn't afraid to the pull the trigger on anything. The stakes are much higher, if not in body count, then at least in family destruction. The Liars have gone from being on the precipice of attacking A to being whipped into place by her. Everyone seems headed for rock bottom.


NOTES

– Shana goes to Rosewood now. And she plays the violin. Okay.

– Something covert is going on with Hanna and Caleb that extends beyond copping a feel. Between Hanna's mysterious text near the beginning of the episode and the package Emily gave Caleb on Hanna's behalf, there are secret ops afoot.

– Conner is a jackass. Not surprising from a Rosewood boy, but instantly unlikeable. Kudos to the show for making someone so innocent-looking so dastardly in record time. His claims and ruthlessness remind me of last season's texts from "A's little brother," the ones that the Liars ignored during the A changing of the guard (from Mona to Red Coat). I was happy to see his car get busted up. The implication is that it was Ezra who did it, but I would imagine Ezra could acquire a plain black hoodie and not one with an identifiable logo on the back. Since Ezra is one of my top suspects for being a hoodie. Because he's awful.

– Aria telling Ezra to go away: Huzzah!

– Ravenswood is so behind the times, people still have flip phones.

– Ashley:red wine::Tom:brown liquor.

– Toby made a funny! "You're following a lead that came from a bird." Almost as good as Spencer's "Mo' Mona, Mo' Problems."

– Your Moment of A: Emily Mask Hoodie hot-wires a car. OH NO! Wait, what?

What'd you think of "Under the Gun"?

Im pretty sure that logo on the hoodie was the school logo and the first person I suspected was Mike because he was saying he should protect Aria. On another note when you talked about mike and Melissa wanting to protect their siblings it got me thinking, what if there's a whole other team just like the A team but this team is trying to protect the girls and take down the A team, just a thought

Is Emily not still a minor? I totally agree with all those who say that Emily is the dumbest little liar. When Detective Tanner said to meet her at the police station alone, Em should have said, "after I call my lawyer." Speaking of which, why did Spencer not call her mom immediately. DUH. Do these girls not have Veronica on speed dial already? Never Ever talk to a cop without your lawyer present. Overall, an okay episode. It was totally obvious that the girl was wearing an Emily mask holding up the guilty sign and Em should have said so, after she said she wanted her lawyer.

I am actually rather interested in Ravenswood, though I think it they could still have colours in there. But definitely will check out the pilot when it comes.

Pretty Little Liars is one of my guilty pleasures, it's a stupid teen show but somehow I got hooked. Scifi and supernatural are more in my alley which is why I am welcoming a supernatural "spinoff" with open arms.

This show though... really needs to get going already. I feel like I'm watching Bold and the Beautiful or something. I guess the next step is for Hanna to have a baby and after a season or two the baby is a teen with the original main characters in their 20s. And still no clue of A.

And Emily really should get a brain. She is gorgeous even though she basically has that one worried face, but she could definitely use a couple more brain cells. Also get rid of Ezra, bring back Jason as Aria's love interest.

I doubt I can stop following the show but I am rather disappointed in how little the story has progressed in 3 seasons. I don't mind slow build up if there eventually is a pay off. But we only have a few-episode-red-herrings, one after another, and they're mostly forgotten instantly afterwards.

Totally with you! I recall Mona telling Spencer at the end of season 3 something like "Think about all the things that happened..." and I was like "What? NOTHING really happened, what are you talking about Mona?"

I tend to agree and disagree with you. I agree that, in the macro-view, the story hasn't changed at all. If you were describing this show to friends, it's go something like:

They: "So what's it about?"
You: "A circle of friends who are anonymously cyber-bullied in the legacy of their dead friend."
They: "Oh, really? That's interesting. How have they kept that going for three years?"
You: "They're still being cyber-bullied. And they're all still attractive and wee."

It's basically the same show with a shameless formula of the Liars finding clues about their attacker that end up leading to a larger conspiracy to where we are now that the syndicate in charge of putting the screws to these girls is impossibly robust.

On a micro-level, however, while seasons definitely feel like they plod along, the stakes have increased, and the Liars are being pushed to their limits. Show creator I. Marlene King calls this the Season of Answers and it certainly has a more revealing feel to it, even if we're still constantly running into dead ends. A is definitely a more defined and threatening character than she was in Season 1 when the worst thing she could do was make people eat cupcakes and threaten to out an inappropriate relationship. People are going to jail. Bodies are piling up.

The soap thing is dead on though. This show rides a very fine line between campy and unwatchable.

Well yes, there definitely are SOME changes - if nothing ever happened I would have stopped watching already.

I hope we get something definite(ish) soon enough. There have been some good episodes that have actually revealed something but they are too few and far between. And I'm not even one of those people who want everything explained. A mystery is fine to me, it's just better if people actually manage to solve pieces of it instead of fumbling around it for years.

So there were definitely parts of this episode I liked. I enjoyed all the tension at the Marin household. It didn't seem forced. I am firmly in the Ashley didn't do it camp, an area I've been exploring the last few weeks but figured it was time to make some roots there.

But again with the stupidity..... really Emily?? You're just gonna leave that DVD there huh? You really don't think anything is gonna happen to it?

I'm pretty much over these masks. Although that one looked more like Emily than the other 2 have looked like Ali and Melissa.

As much as I adore Toby, I am getting a bit bored with his storyline. I'm missing where it's been "intense". And after all the secrets and lies, you'd think people would be a little more insistent on being up-front with the other members in the group. It's kind of a bad thing when your former enemy is more truthful. But it's not like these girls ever learn anything.

So Ravenswood is definitely creeptastic. I just hope we don't do that blue hue thing for the actual show. It was fine for this episode and actually fit really well but I don't want to see that all that time.

I'm leaning more towards Mike than Ezra on the bashing the car in front but I wouldn't be surprised to hear that it was Ezra either.

Can you see that the Emily mask hoodie has 2 different eye color? Lighting or Jenna?
Mike couldn't have smashed Connor's car, that's a plot to get Mike in trouble though he didn't do it.
Oh Ravenwood. I love.

Your review mirrored my sentiments about the episode pretty perfectly. Ravenswood looked like a creepy place to hang out (cannot believe they're sending Caleb there) and the blue colour saturation on the screen was making my eyes sore. Also hello hitchcock reference #1000 - the birds, good one. Shana has to be the most annoying character, why would you switch schools in senior year? Get real Shana, go play your violin crappily somewhere else.

Emily is once again the most stupid liar (I feel like this is a given every time she opens her mouth. Girl has the looks but not the brains). When she decided it would be a smart idea to "plant" the evidence at a police station you just knew that was going to backfire. Pretty much immediately as the words flew out of her mouth. I'm more impressed with Hanna's hiding location, props to her, if only she knew how to hide a gun that well.

I also don't understand how they girls (excluding Spencer) are so behind on the technological times. Aria's reaction that they can check for ballistics nowadays is like she's never seen and episode of CSI, and I don't know why Emily didn't think there were going to be at least security cameras in a police station? So silly!!!

I know I'm picking on the idiotic moments, but they're the most fun. Overall it was a really solid ep. Ravenswood was haunting and this whole Ashley getting set up and arrested has taken an interesting turn. I'm looking forward to next week!

Sidenote: Does anyone know why Hanna's hair has been looking so terrible lately. One of the good things about this show is that everyone usually looks immaculate but this entire season she has pretty much looked like crap (hair-wise). So sad.

As far as Hanna's hair, I think it was that she went to brunette but they still needed Hanna blonde. So the first episode she has a wig, which she said she hated so she went back to blonde but they decided to suddenly have her hair grow a few inches so she's got extensions in. So I think they're still working on getting her better ones.

Ah this makes sense haha. Hopefully it grows out and they can go back to styling it as perfectly as it was for the last few seasons! Such a trivial thing for me to bring up but I really do love her hair hahaha

That Ravenswood place freaked me out. I don't think I will be watching it when it starts.

I either think it was Mike who broke the car or someone else completely other than Ezra. I liked this episode but don't like the idea of Hanna's mum going to jail. The problems with A are becoming more serious than in the previous seasons. I think A has grown some balls. I wonder if A knows how to start a car like that or if it was someone else instead... Interesting episode.

This episode much like the last couple to me have been all over the place. I feel like I need a concept map with me all the time in order to understand everything that has been going on. That being said, I am expecting a pretty big reveal in the summer finale because of all the thinking I have had to do. Still love the show tho! The best part to me is the Emily mask! Love it! It looks perfect!!!

"Aria also had her own problems as the Ezria rumor started to spread (...) However, that Ezra hasn't gotten any flack for this (yet) is a little disturbing. Though maybe that's because I think Ezra is a creepy pedo with a little-boy face who looks even creepier in his sweater-vests. "

I think that happens because this kind of show passes a confusing message on something serious. When I look at a teenager that gets involved with an adult, it's clear to me it's up to the adult to have sense, terminate the relationship, or be punished in case that doesn't happen. However, on certain Tv shows, the characters live in an alternate universe in which teenage girls are played by beautiful adult women who do everything they want without parental supervision, and apparently have all the money they need to do whatever they please whenever they please. For all intents and purposes these girls are adults. That gives us the impression that the relationship between a teacher and a student under such conditions is a normal relationship between two consenting adults, when, in fact, it isn't. In that fictional context, I can't really blame any adult man for getting involved with such a cute beauty as Aria.

See, I think it was Mike, not Ezra who hit the car. I mean they showed Ezra at the place, but Mike had just finished I will protect you speech, and we already know he has stolen stuff for the heck of it back in season 2.

It was almost certainly Mike. It would need to be someone that was close to Connor that had to know where to find the car and how to find the car. The implication, though (by juxtaposition) is that Ezra is involved since images of him are in montage with breaking apart the car. The rashness and boldness of the crime fit Mike the B&E Specialist but, just through the methods of montage, Ezra is implicated.

I'm pretty confident it was Mike too. I mean, Ezra would never do something like that (he would think it was immoral or something - irony!) and whoever did it, was wearing a sweatshirt with the sharks' logo on the back. And we know Mike is on the team. Putting two and two together ain't brain surgery :-)

First of all that Grunwald lady is really creepy I still have no idea how she has anything to do with alison or A or the plot in general or that weird wood carved smacking paddle on that wall but considering spencer is following up on a lead that came from a bird this must means that liars are really really desperate. which makes them do a lot of stupid stuff.

plus how funny it was when spencer started explaining to the girls that the bullet of the gun can be traced back to the actual Weapon of which it was fired from , like seriously maybe later we can all explain how the sun comes up every day , that two plus two is four and oh yeah… you are stupid!!! , why are the writers making this girls soooo stupid , I keep thinking maybe it will change , I get that they lie all the time even though I think their life could be a lot better if they haven't but the show is called pretty little liars for a reason but do they have to be so stupid. I find it really hard to root for them because I could forgive a lot of stupidity in the early seasons but this is season 4 the girls should've learn a thing or two by now but they never do , every time they have some incriminating evidence it gets lost/stolen /erased/ shredded in a blender. They never have the sense to back things up , if it were me I would back it up , then I would triple back it up stash it in numerous place , maybe rent a safe in a Swiss bank I don't know but trust me I'll make sure to have copies, lot's of it , I always figured spencer would be the right person to do it because I can totally imagine spencer making A files in colored binders and a label gun. But at this point the girls can't even draw on an etchy sketch. Which makes you think Maybe A isn't so smart and fifty steps ahead of the girls if they are soo stupid maybe he's like a monkey but not you know the evil kind like mojo jojo with super brain.... no, just a regular one or ezra , that looked especially suspicious this episode looking at Emily and aria in very A manner .
Oh and I saw the next episode promo and guess what the girls fall into one of A traps again …shocking !!!!!

sorry for the long rent but sometime this show is really frustrating

I know the Ezra Aria relationship is suppose to be wrong. However, I just can't get over the fact that the guy who played Noel (Brant Daugherty) is a year older than the guy who plays Ezra. I think the actors true ages is the reason why I can't fully hate their relationship.

Estelle Getty was younger than Bea Arthur but still played her mother convincingly. That doesn't really have much to do with this except that the storyworld dictates the interpretation of characters' relationships, not the actual actors' lives (unless they're included as character quirks like Burton Guster's tap-dancing on Psych).

I don't think Ian Harding is a creepster. But Ezra absolutely is. And Ezria is unholy.

First of all, I enjoyed your review very much so! Thank you! :)

Second, this was by far the best episode this season, hell, It's one of the best episodes I've seen since Season 2. (I think the show was at it's best back then) I'm so happy to see the Hannah storyline finally paying off! That was simply fantastic! I never liked Hannah's dad (never much cared for him at least), but the whole family is simply falling apart and with Ashley's arrest for Wilden's murder, things are heating up! I can't wait to see what's in store for us.

Emily has no brain, seriously this girl was dumber than Hannah's brilliant idea of carrying a concealed weapon around fully knowing what A's capable of. Oh, and let's not forget her even smarter idea of trying to bury the gun. When will these girls ever learn? YOU CAN'T CHEAT A. He/She is all knowing.

Aria's storyline was so awesome. And her moment with Mike gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling! ^

In response to this:

"
Though maybe that's because I think Ezra is a creepy pedo with a little-boy face who looks even creepier in his sweater-vests. I'm saying I might be biased."

"Aria telling Ezra to go away: Huzzah!"

I honestly hope that Aria is done with Ezra forever! <

That was a mask? Couldn't tell the difference.

Why shouldn't Aria get flak for her decision? She slept with a teacher.

I liked the Ravenswood sequence; it's apparent that the crew LOVES Macabre imagery, so this new parallel show will be like a playground for them.

I'm glad Ashley was finally arrested; Hanna's cover-up storyline was starting to drag a bit and the story is gaining forward momentum again.

I personally think Pretty Little Liars is headed for a tragic ending.

Yeah, she slept with one (emphasis on ONE) person and yet is being labelled as a slut. Harsh, and totally unfair.

She slept with an authority figure; a teacher; someone with a hand in her academic success or failure. Of course it's suspicious. And teenagers are vicious. So of course the natural result would be...

It's troubling because Ezra doesn't seem to be getting any flak despite his role of responsibility as a steward for young Rosewood minds. Instead of accusing Ezra of being a creepster for preying on children, Aria becomes a target instead because she slept with someone. Is she more slutacious for sleeping with her teacher than with, say, another student? It's a little lopsided and unfair and is almost a statement (!!!) about the double-standard of sex among the genders.

He did get fired, though. There was blowback and Aria saved him from it and now she's getting some. Do you expect the students to just openly insult their teacher to his face? Do you understand the trouble they'd get in for that?

The fact that the show is only showing the resentment toward Aria is the point. (1) Until Ezra says that he, too, has been getting blowback from Ezria (which would probably be the end of his job), we can only assume that Aria is getting the brunt of any kind of gossipy aftermath. (2) The statement is made by the show in only showing Aria suffering the double-standard of sex. The focus of Aria's story for that episode is her loneliness in suffering the consequences of her ill-fated actions. The fact that she's slut-shamed while we see no ill-effects to Ezra's character (he seems just as popular, he still has a job, he doesn't have any qualms about singling Aria out in a stairwell to talk about their issues) is the statement that's being made. What happens to Ezra when we don't see him is irrelevant until it's folded into the show.

"The implication is that it was Ezra who did it," I thought it was implied that it was Mike, being that there was a school "sharks" type logo on the hoodie.
Not a totally terrible episode. I mean, the Ravenswood parts were horrendous, I will so not be watching that creepy black & white town, but the rest of it was pretty good. Go A, for showing Emily that trying to be smart just doesnt suit her. Poor Hannakins though, she is my favourite character, and it broke my heart to see her grounded, internet-less, and at the end of the episode, mother-less! I would like to see her blaming Emily for this, but methinks Hanna is far too nice.
Oh, great, more mask shennanigans coming back to bite people in the ass. At least this one was recognisable as Emily! And thats all there is to say on that matter.

I went from Ezra looking in the cafe from the window (he doesn't come in), to Shauna playing, to the car being smashed.

Logically Mike's history (of BREAKING and entering) makes you think he did it. However, when has this show ever been so obvious?

So apparently Ravenswood is grey and set in an old horror film. Don't know how I feel about that, the color filter changes between scenes were jarring and I don't want Caleb's character to end up there, but I'll try watching the pilot. Also, when Mike's lacrosse buddy was insulting Aria like that, I was yelling at the screen for her to use that half-hour of self-defense class to punch him good. He's an ass and deserves to be on trash duty for the rest of his life. No matter your views on the Ezria relationship, slut-shaming is wrong, plain and simple, and nobody deserves to be on the receiving end of it, especially in high-school.
Other than that, it was good to see the show finally raise the stakes with Ashley's arrest, since it's a story with serious consequences, which we haven't seen before on PLL. Setting someone up for murder is a whole new level of evil for A.
Finally, the person who smashed that car was wearing a Sharks logo hoody, so it;s definitely someone who goes to Rosewood. Question: are all Rosewood sports teams called the sharks, or does each one have a different mascot?

Thought this episode was better than the ones before this season. We finally got some real movement. For weeks it's been "Ashley's keeping a secret" and "Tom knows something but won't talk to Hanna or Ashley" and so on. All of a sudden, the cat's out of the bag and those three are inseparable! Thank you, finally, some evolution in the show.
Real glad Mona's back too. Please let her be more of an important character??? Even though the RV is gone, there still have to be tons of secrets she hasn't told yet. And we wanna know! ... Okay, I wanna know.
Spencer and Toby were both a snooze this week. Wait, scratch that. Spencer was a snooze this week. Toby is kind of ALWAYS a snoozefest, so it's kind of redundant mentioning it again. Though I did like the crack about "you're basing all your information on a bird and A". That was actually kind of on point. And even though it probably IS a REAL CLUE, still, who in their right minds would ever think it was? Just goes to show how PLL is starting to lose its edge...?
Emily is stupid. And very dumb. Every week I hope that this is the week that she'll lose her platinum-blond-IQ, and every week she goes on and makes the same silly mistakes. Yawn.
Kinda glad Aria got the slut-reputation branded on her. I mean, I never liked Ezria (I agree with him being a pedo!!) and I thought it was ridiculous how there were never any real consequences to them being together. Sure, he changed jobs a couple of times. But they started out as teacher-student. And they're still doing that. So what's really changed? They're both trying to move on with their lives and so far we haven't seen that many emotional repercussions. We've some, yes. But not much. But what I was more astounded about, was the non-existing social backlash. There's definitely people who must've known about them - remember season 2 ending, the masquerade, Ezra kissing Aria in a full ballroom without their masks on? - and somehow, they both got away unscathed. And I don't care about Ezra not having to deal with much backlash just yet - let's be honest, he's never going to learn that dating a teenager is not the right thing to do when you're an adult, pedo forever! - but I'm happy that Aria is. Sure, it's no fun being called a slut. And to be honest: she isn't one. But at least she's getting to see that that particular relationship... Yeah, okay, "might not have been the brightest idea..." I want her to move on, to see that dating her teacher was NOT the right way to go, and until she does that, she will never let him go. (which is probably exactly what will also never happen: apparently this show has a special fanclub called "Ezria forever").

Best episode this season,
- Until this episode i was almost sure that Hannah's mom was the killer but after this episode i am sure she isn't,
- Emily goes to a police station and puts a CD(DVD?) with a note on it on a detective's desk without wearing gloves or anything to hide who she is(surveillance?, finger prints?)
- Every male in this show is evil, or at least was evil at some point of their lives(except for Caleb(maybe?!))
- Mike, if i was him and someone talked like this about my sister and in my presence i would slap the shit out of him(i don't have any sister sadly so am not sure how i would actually react), and like Nick said Mike would make a great A
- Conners car, i am not sure who smashed it, it could be Ezra(if he is, then kudos for him), it could be mike(if he is, then kudos for him too) Or it could be A, we all now that no one is allowed to play with A's dolls(the liars) beside him/her so it's very plausible, but i am thinking it's Mike to redeem himself
- Mona is Back :)
-
Creepyville, i don't know how they will connect Ravenswood with PLL, because it seems that Ravenswood have a supernatural vibe in it, and as much as it may seem that A is supernatural, i would really hate it if they add a supernatural vibe to PLL.

I think Mike was the one who bused up the car.

I'm surprised that I still get surprised by the level of stupidity of this girls. On today's menu, Emily Fields. Come on, EVEN MY CAT KNOWS THAT IF YOU LEAVE A DVD ANONIMOUSLY AT A POLICE STATION THAT COULD BLAME A WITH A ON THE LOOSE IT'S GONNA COME BACK TO BITE YOU. Really. It was beyond stupid even for her low I.Q.
I did like the Marin household storyline this week, I felt the tension between Hanna and her father, Ashley and Tom and how things worked out from last week was pretty good. That being said, of course I don't want Red Wine bff Ashley to rot in jail.
Spencer's storylines, I believe, are getting creepier, pointless and weirder by the minute, especially when they include Toby. (It really is painful trying to watch that guy make an expression of actual feelings). I just wish they would put her brain to good use for once.
In the Aria upfront, I honestly didn't care. Another creep Rosewood guy (this time age appropiate). Ezra felt a little out of place just being there sort of stalking her, but then again, it's pedo teacher stalking underage Aria Montgomery so...
Ravenswood is PLAIN CREEPY. Beyond the necessary amount of creepiness, that is.

Thank you. He is, but it's not like Emily Fields makes it complicated to be smarter than her.

1. Ashley's going to prison. Please let Laura Leighton join Orange is the new black. That would be amazing! 2. Mona and Ezra are back. Ezra is still a pedo for Aria. 3. Aria has finally gained "the slut" title. It's a wonder that with whole Ezra thing she needed four seasons for that. 4. Hannah had a moment of truth - she ruins everything she touches. 5. Emily - can you please go to bed with Shana already? We need to fast forward the plot. Also you're beyond stupid - it was obvious the FBI lady would find out it was you who left the DVD. 6. Ravenswood has to be in another dimension. The lighting was different. Also the whole town was full of creeps / pedos. I'm so going to watch the pilot. Also yay for pigeon-ravens! 7. Nick - "Mommmm! Mike's been cyber-bullying me!" "I know, honey. He's been cyber-bullying everyone. Can you rub some calamine on my bee stings?" - that was brilliant! 8. Spencer should go back to Asylum. She's obsessed. She needs treatment - maybe electric schock would help?
