“A” is for Attention Whore (and A-hole) – A Recap of Pretty Little Liars’ “Can You Hear Me Now?”

Damn that “A”!  She’s like a pesky little toddler — you know, the one who is always standing on her head, doing cartwheels, and annoyingly tugging on your shirt, while continually screaming, “Look at ME!  Look at ME!”  . . . during a funeral service  . . . for her Grandma.  As the weeks progress, “A” just seems to get more  and more insistent on keeping the girls’ attention, with her mean-spirited messages and evil tricks. 

This week, the girls actually did what I thought they should have done in the first episode (well . . . after calling the cops, of course).  Namely, they made a concerted and unified effort to cut off all communication with the mysterious “A.”  Well, it turns out, when it comes to Stalker Teens, I’m not nearly the expert I thought I was.  Because this actually ended up being a HUGE MISTAKE!  

Let’s revisit, shall we?

Spencer Ruins Saves the Day!  (And the girls sexually harrass Mr. Fitz.)

The first moments of the episode, feature our favorite cyber-stalking victims, gathered on a park bench. (Well. . .  the first few moments, aside from Hanna’s SUPER lame, blink-and-you’ll miss it, run-in with the cops, which I refuse to recognize as an actual scene, due to its sheer pointless ridiculousness.  “So, you STOLE and totalled someone’s car, Hanna the Infamous Shoplifter?  No big deal!  At least you’re not fat anymore . . .),.

The purpose of this bonding session?  To create a memorial for Alison, the same “Dead” Chick who currently seems to be making all their lives a living hell.  And, based on the flashbacks shown, Alison more or less made their lives a living hell, while she was alive too.  

“Kiss my psycho stalking ASS, BITCHES!  If you don’t, I’ll never make you cheap ugly friendship bracelets AGAIN!”

(SERIOUSLY!  Even BEFORE she died, Alison seemed like a majorly annoying, judgmental b*tch!  Why did these girls bother hanging out with her, in the first place?  I can understand Emily, because she obviously had a BIG lesbian crush on the girl.  And Hanna needed Alison to make her popular, despite her weight.  But Aria and Spencer?  I just don’t get it . . .)

So, anyway, the girls fight a bit about which one of them should get stuck holding on to Dead Alison’s fug bracelet.  Fortunately, Spencer, who clearly enjoys stealing other people’s things (like, for example, their term papers and their boyfriends), gallantly offers to take the ugly piece of fabric back to her place for some “good loving.”

For SALE!  The one and only friendship bracelet that spent time in an ACTUAL coffin and LIVED TO TELL THE TALE!  If you sniff closely, you can even SMELL the rotted flesh!  It can be yours for the price of $29.99 (plus shipping, handling, and a small portion of the corpse’s estate tax.)

Then, Spencer, who apparently takes her laptop EVERYWHERE (including the bathroom), randomlywhips it out (no pun intended), and uses it to prevent herself from receiving texts, calls or e-mails from any and all unknown numbers.  (Who knew small town parks had such excellent WiFi?)  The other girls borrow the computer from Spencer and quickly follow suit.

While they are doing that, Mr. Fitz rides by on his bicycle.  Fitzy is looking Super Femme, with his ghostly pale stick legs and tight ass bicycle shorts.

“LIVE STRONG, underage minors that I will eventually screw!  LIVE STRONG!”

Although I was fairly unimpressed with the whole “Fitz and Bicycle” package, the girls apparently liked it just fine.  Spencer and Hanna, in particular, took joy in hooting and hollering at Fitzy, with all the class and tact of an overweight construction worker, or a middle-aged Wall Street type, trying desperately to “score some hos” at an overpriced, slightly seedy, Titty Bar.  Noticeably silent during this love fest, were Closet Lesbian, Emily, and Aria, who totally could have totally shouted out “I’ve tapped that” . . . but didn’t (unfortunately, because that would have been funny).

Just when the girls are beginning to celebrate their newfound freedom to sexually harrass their professors without killjoy “A” looking over their shoulders, an “Alison is Lost” flyer conveniently falls in their laps.  “Ding Dong the B*tch is Dead!” is scrawled across the front in marker.

My sentiments exactly . . .

Re-Learning To Kill a Mockingbird, as taught by a Very Pissy Professor

“That Scout character seemed kind of cute.  Think she would date me?”

At school, Aria once again visits Ezra Fitz in between classes, to tell him how much fun her friends had objectifying his man parts at the park the other day.  Fitzy’s eyes noticeably lightup, as he mulls over the possibility of a Pretty Little Fivesome, with himself as centerpiece.  But, for now, he will have to settle for being a One-Cradle kind of Robber.  He tells Aria that they need to “talk,” and invites her over to his studio apartment for some noodles and sex.  Aria, desperate to learn what’s underneath those bicycle shorts, promptly agrees.

Fitzy and Aria start talking about how Aria thinks her dad is probably boinking the teaching assistant again.  When Fitzy gently suggests that she let her parents work out their problems in their own way, Aria gets WAY TOO UPSET!  Suddenly, she’s going at Fitzy like a pit bull in heat, only not in a hot way.  In fact, Aria actually kind of reminded me of Joe Pesci in that famous scene from Goodfellas.  Except, instead of repeatedly asking Fitzy whether he thought she was efffing “funny,” she continually demanded to know whether he thought she was effing “immature.”

“So what?  You think I’m a BABY!  A f*&king BABY?  Like I’m immature?  Do I look like a wear a f*&king poopy diaper to YOU?”

Aria then storms out of the house, leaving Fitzy to clean up the trail of poopy and spitup his baby left behind . . .

The next day in Mr. Fitz’s class, the group get into a discussion about Harper Lee’s classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.

And the whole scene made me feel as old as dirt.  I read the novel my freshman year of high school (which wasn’t THAT long ago, mind you).  However, upon viewing this scene, I quickly realized that, while I recalled a few general things about the characters in the story, I remembered next to nothing about its plot.  It truly shames me to say that, before I wrote this recap, I headed off to Wikipedia, and read the To Kill a Mockingbird entry, in hopes of truly understanding what went down here. 

First off, you just knew Fitzy was in a BAD MOOD, when he started calling Atticus Finch a hypocrite.  Now, like I said, I don’t remember that much about the book, but I KNOW that NOBODY messes with ATTICUS!  That’s like the literary equivalent of kicking the Pope in the nuts.

“You are going DOWN, Fitzy, you muthaf*&ka!”

Fitzy’s point, I think, was that, while Atticus looked down his nose at his hometown, for its failure to provide justice for Tom Robinson, he was more than willing to help Boo Radley escape the arm of justice, after the latter had killed Bob Ewell.  Aria then makes some lame argument about there being an equal “exchange,” and Atticus’s son Jem having been “raised right.” 

Fitzy interrogates Aria, like a scorned lover, in front of the ENTIRE class.  Then, when another student tries to offer his opinion, Fitzy jumps down his throat for no reason whatsoever.  Later that night, Aria, scolds Fitzy for his bad behavior.  They kiss and make up . . .

 The Femme Ranger rides AGAIN!

But then, Aria comes home to find that “A” has spilled the beans to her mom about her father’s affair through a letter.   The letter seems to suggest that Aria knew about the affair all along (which she did).  Aria’s mom looks PISSED!

Creepy Toby strikes again!

“Emily, after Chem Lab, I would very much like to eat your liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.  Sound good?”

Like I said, I don’t remember much about To Kill A Mockingbird.  But I DO remember the characters.  Particularly, I remember reading about Boo Radley.  I  remember how,  for most of the book, I was absolutely certain the dude was a child molester.  And then, at the end of the novel, Boo ended up being kind of a nice guy. . . just misunderstood (Sorry for spoiling it for you, if you haven’t read it yet.)  It’s highly possible that the writers wanted us to feel that way about Toby Cavanaugh by the end of this episode — namely, that he is a nice guy who is simply misunderstood. 

That might end up being true.   But you know what?   He still creeps the crap out of me!  I wouldn’t be at all surprised if, next week, we learn that Toby chopped off the heads of the kids who put shaving cream in his locker this week, and used their teeth to make a neckace . . .

 At the beginning of the episode, Emily is flirting with her almost-girlfriend, Maya, when the latter gives the former a bright red leash scarf.

Emily seems flattered by Maya’s gift.  However, she is so embarrassed by the prospect of people knowing the two of them are “an item,” that she takes it off, anytime anyone seems to be watching her.  So, of course, Emily’s new lab partner, Creepy Toby, has to make some awkward comment about how “nice” it looks on her, even though he only actually saw her wearing it for a split second.  Emily freaks out a bit when she opens her chemistry book, and finds in it those missing pictures from last week of Emily and Maya making out in the photobooth.

When Emily confronts Maya about this, she denies having anything to do with putting the photos in Emily’s book.  However, she doesn’t appear to be particularly concerned about their being made public.  Later in the episode, Emily more or less “dumps” Maya, claiming she needs “her space.”

Toward the end of the episode, Emily confronts Toby about the photos, when she finds him lurking around late at night near her garbage can. (Oh, I’m serious!)  Toby also claims not to have put the photos in her chemistry book, and basically denies ever having even seen them.  He then makes this long drawn out speech about “being yourself” and “not caring what others think of you,” that, again, was supposed to be nice, and, again, I found INSANELY creepy . . .  Hide your pet bunnies, Emily!

Open Wide, Hanna  . . .

Be careful, Hanna!  I read that excessive tears can cause weight gain!

So after enduring that pesky little grand theft auto issue (notice how it took WEEKS of Hanna’s mom screwing Deputy Douchey to expunge Hanna’s record of her minor shoplifting offense, but the car theft is just a blip on the radar), Hanna needs some time to unwind.  She is excited to receive a call from her long absent pompous ass of a father.  Convinced that her dad wants her back in her life, Hanna practically sprints to her father’s car.  However, she becomes suspicious when her father makes some snide remark about her “poor driving skills.”  (Haha, this guy’s a LAUGH riot!  He should really get his own comedy show . . . Yeah, I’m being sarcastic.  Papa Marin sucks!) 

“Did you come here because of the car?”  Hanna inquires, eyes blinking back tears.

“No, that would require me to actually give two sh*ts about you, which I don’t.”   Hanna’s father doesn’t admit or deny her daughter’s accusation.  Instead, he takes her to dinner in order to reveal to her the real reason for his visit.

Apparently, while Hanna was busy stealing clothing, crashing cars, making out with her possibly gay boyfriend, and dieting, Papa Marin was getting his screw on with his Stepford Wife-esque new fiance, and fathering her instantly unlikeable daughter, Kate.  Understandably, Hanna doesn’t take the news too well.  She copes with the situation by more or less threatening to murder Kate at sea, while the latter theoretically teacher her how to sail. 

 (Honestly, can you blame her?  Just looking at this self-righteous chick makes me want to revise my current views on gun control!)

When called out for her mean spiritedness, Hanna replies by passive aggressively saying, “What?  It’s a joke.  And this is a fork!”  (Apparently, Hanna hopes to one day add “homicide” to her growing list of criminal offenses.)  When Hanna’s father informs her that she will be paying off the cost of Sean’s car repairs by working at his father’s dentist office, she takes the opportunity to make another jibe at Kate and her rather large, fake teeth . . .

And yet, by the end of the night, it’s “A,” who gets the last laugh.  While Hanna is driving home from dinner (Wait!  They are still letting her DRIVE?), she learns that someone has made a dedication to her on the radio!

But it’s from A . . .

The song is called “I Don’t Need You Anymore,” and it more or less adequately describes the way Hanna’s father is treating her.  Ouch A!  Under the circumstances, threatening to kill Hanna at sea, or making fun of her horse teeth would have been WAY more humane!

And the Reward for Most Adorable Drunk Ever Goes To . . .

So, depending on how you look at it, Spencer is either having the best or the worst day ever.  On one hand, Spencer has been nominated for the prestigious Golden Orchid writing award.

. . . but it’s for a paper she STOLE from her sister.

She’s home alone, because the rest of her family went away to Europe and left her there to rot.

And SOMEONE BREAKS INTO HER HOUSE!

But it ends up just being Drunk Wren who LUUUUUUUUVES her and wants to hug, kiss, and squeeze her, forever and ever.

Except that while Spencer and Wren are getting their flirt on, some creepo is videotaping them from outside Spencer’s house!  Oh, and did I mention Wren dropped a  FLOWER POT on Spencer’s floor?

When Spencer leaves Drunk Wren off at the hotel, the two of them make out with one another hardcore!

And when she comes back, someone has cleaned up her flower pot mess for her . . .

But the flower pedals are arranged in the shape of the letter “A,” and a video camera is inside.  SOMEONE is (or was) in the house!

And then SOMEONE wrote “It won’t be that easy, b&tches,” on Spencer’s mirror, in the color of lipstick that Alison always wore!

And that’s all I’ve got folks.  What did you think of this week’s installment of Pretty Little Liars?  Think you are any closer to learning “A'”s identity, or that of Alison’s killer?  Were you as turned on by Drunk Wren as I was?  Are you a fan of Fitzy’s legs?  All important questions . . .

  1. amy

    haha your reviews are hilarious! i agree with everything you said…and i feel really bad for hanna. since i’m a fan of the books i’m a little wary as to where this is going (since most of this doesn’t happen) but it seems good enough 🙂 do u watch make it or break it? if you do, i would love to see your reviews for it!

    • Hey Amy! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! I am so glad you enjoyed the recap!

      I’m really excited to meet someone on the blogosphere who has actually read the books for the PLL series. I have been thinking about picking them up for quite awhile now. I absolutely LOVE making comparisons between books I’ve read and the television series based on them. It’s always very cool seeing how the show’s producers interpret and/or change some of the book’s elements to make them “fit” on a small screen.

      How do you feel the PLL books compare to the TV series? Do you think they are worth my reading? Or will they feel redundant, since I am already watching the series? I would be very eager to hear your thoughts.

      Unfortunately, I don’t watch “Make it, or Break it” yet. But I am always looking for new series to watch and recap. So, now that you have recommended it, I will definitely look into it.

      Thanks again, for your kind words. I really appreciate it. 🙂

  2. A is just bugging me, like aren’t you dead? Then be dead. So happy we didn’t see a couple people this eppie ie. Jenna Police Douche (I dont remeber if he made an apperance). She she scares me actually her and her brother scare me.

    Sadly I missed the first 7 mins *-* I was quite peeved for not reminding myself earlier or else I would just forgot to watch it in general, boo.

    You know I got to give Spencer props for actually doing something about the “A” situation. But really I was thinking that they should have done something like ages ago, like you said. Then again it didn’t quite go according to plan because the death chick is trying to ruin them even after death.

    Didn’t she torture them enough when she was breathing? Poor girls… They mentioned something about Alison being the glue that holds their group together. Did she blackmail them? Because it sounds like it. Oh becoming friends. maybe Spencer owed Alli a favor and there you go a friendship formed. Oh Emily and Aria were close (not that close), but they were the first to talk after Aria got back.

    Lmao the for sale.

    The laptop is what makes Spencer tick. But seriously it is pretty much attach to her hip. Did you noticed how pale she was during most of the episode and then Wren showed up and no more pale (sort of) Spencer.

    Ok there must be no cute guys in this town because Fitz and his hair are board line ugly. But Spencer likes her men a little older and Hanna is basically trying to get screwed by her gay boyfriend. So it should come in no shock that they may want the Fitz lol Aria, should have said something long those line, it would have made for some good laughs.

    Oh I was gonna b*tch slap Fitz in the face during the whole episode. First the parents comment (although Aria may have overdone it), then the Mockingbird discussion (ATTICUS! How dare he say anything about that man! It’s been awhile but I remember that Atticus was amazing and awesome), then he makes of ass out of him, then he gets back into good graces with Aria (???) “That’s like the literary equivalent of kicking the Pope in the nuts.” Lmao, sad but true. Oh those pale legs of his, not a pretty site, my friend.

    Toby is no Boo Radley. But nice analogy 🙂

    Emily’s plot is near boring in this episode IMO I wasn’t paying too much attention, actually it wasn’t until the “breakup” and maybe the somewhat awkward flirting with Toby at the end that I tuned in. I’m telling you there’s something about Maya, like she’s hiding something.

    Hanna’s not getting a break to save her life. Her dad was a total douche who up until recently didnt care about her exploits. Like this girl could be mentally damage and all he cares about is the new family that he has created for himself. But I felt so happy that she was insulting her would-be step-sister (my mind is twisted that way). The dad can’t say shtick her becasue of his abandonment.

    The dedication was messed up on soo many levels, low blow dead girl low blow.

    Spencer would have had a better night had she stayed with her sister former fiancé 😀 I’m kind of glad that didn’t over do it with the cheating (well until nxt eppie, right). I can’t believe they just abandoned her like that. Oh wait I can.

    Wren is so lovable (and you know I love him every episode that passes). I want more drunk!Wren, let’s see if we can more of him 😄

    As always love the recaps 🙂

    • I’m with you M! I didn’t miss Jenna or Deputy Douchey at all this week! (Although, admittedly, I missed Shirtless Deputy Douchey’s abs just a little bit. Here’s the thing: Douchey’s kind of pretty to look at. If he NEVER ever opened his mouth, I think I could actually bring myself to like the character. It’s just too bad he has to talk, and ruin it all!)

      It’s funny you mentioned missing the first 7 minutes. I got home late Tuesday night, and MISSED THEM TOO! (Small world, right?) That was one of the reasons the recap was a day late. ABC Fam never reaired it on Tuesday, and it wasn’t available on the internet until Wednesday. So I had to wait until then and see the beginning, before I could recap the episode.

      Maybe the book gives more insight into why all the girls hung out with Ali, and willingly put up with her BS. Because based on this series, she just seems plain AWFUL. The only rationale I could think of is a sort of “Mean Girl” thing, where the popular girls stick together, regardless of whether they actually like one another. So the PLL girls hung out with Queen Bee Ali, like the “Mean Girls” hung out with Regina George in her movie, just to be popular by association.

      The thing is, except for maybe Hanna, none of these girls seem like the type who would hang out with a mean person just to be popular. Spencer seems too into her academics to care about popularity, and Emily and Aria seem too “nice and quiet.” Maybe they will explain it better as the series progresses.

      Haha, good point about Pale Spencer. Maybe she’s some weird “tech” version of a vampire, that feeds off of the energy from her laptop and uses it to live. (Or maybe she just feeds off of Wren . . .) 🙂 Spencer’s face and Fitzy’s legs should get together and throw a Pasty White Party.

      Speaking of Fitzy, I’m glad you mentioned the hair or, rather, the lack thereof. Is it just me, or is he balding already? Not to be mean, but . . . (OK I guess it IS to be mean.) . . . his body also leaves a bit to be desired. In hotness, it does not quite rise to Wren or even Deputy Douchey levels.

      I guess he’s got an OK face, so maybe THAT’S why the girls like him? Another possibility is that all the teachers at the PLL’s school are in their 60s, so Fitzy’s the only available option for “Teacher Coveting.” Pretty sad, if you ask me. Also, virtually ALL the PLL’s have daddy issues, making them in DESPERATE need for an older dude to lust after . . .

      Fitzy was definitely a pretty crappy Faux Boyfriend this week. He really should take lessons from Drunk Wren on how to woo a lady. Speaking of Drunk Wren (sigh, swoon) let’s see about getting this guy an alcohol addiction stat! That boy is just the happiest, sexiest drunk ever!

      I agree, Emily and Maya are starting to put me to sleep. Whoever thought a “risque” lesbian storyline could be so snoozy? When, as a fan, you are rooting for Creepy Toby to get the girl, just because he’d be more exciting to watch, you KNOW there is something seriously wrong . . .

      Ugh, Hanna’s step sis Kate was AWFUL! I don’t know what it was about her, but she just really bugged me the second she appeared on my screen. And Hanna’s Dad definitely gave Deputy Douchey a run for his money in terms of sheer douchiness. Hanna’s, Spencer’s, and Aria’s dads should all enter the Worst Father Contest. I think each would fare pretty well.

      Thanks, as always, for the brilliant show insights and recap love! Talk to you soon!

  3. imaginarymen

    Hey this show is getting better! For one thing, some of the girls can actually ACT now!!

    I just read Bret Easton Ellis’ godawful “Imperial Bedrooms” which is the sequel to “Less Than Zero” and in it Clay (who we all know as Andrew McCarthy 😉 is being stalked by someone(s) sending mysterious text messages and following him in unmarked cars with tinted windows.

    It had me wondering if BEE is f’ing plagiarizing YA novels!! ;->>

    This recap was hilarious, you totally make the show worth it for me!

    • Aww, I’m blushing. Thanks Amy! See, I told you PLL wasn’t ALL bad! 🙂

      Aside from the actress who plays Emily (she’s a bit stiff), I actually think most of the core cast is pretty decent in terms of acting. The actress who plays Spencer improves drastically each week. She pulls off “Type A with an Attitude” pretty well now. And as you’ve probably noticed from the recap, I heart Wren (Julian Morris).

      Awww, I’m bummed that Imperial Bedrooms wasn’t a good read. I take it you’ve already read it? I’m actually a fairly big Bret Easton Ellis fan, and was really looking forward to this sequel. I’ve read almost everything he’s written, even the ridiculous Lunar Park, a.k.a. the “horror” novel where the main nemesis was an Evil Ferbie Doll. (Lunar Park was admittedly pretty bad, but not nearly as bad as everyone said it was. I actually think Glamorama was worse.)

      That’s lame that Ellis is doing yet another Psycho Stalker plotline. He did the same thing in Lunar Park. Talk about a lack of originality. He could have at least written a book in between, before he started recycling plotlines. But who knows, maybe he IS a really big Pretty Little Liars fan, and did this as a sort of homage to Sara Shepard’s books. 🙂

  4. imaginarymen

    Hey I missed the beginning too! CREEPY!!

    ;-p

    -A made me do it

  5. Anastasia

    You guys missed the beginning? I missed the entire thing! My alarm failed (it’s on at 1.30am!). But I now watch it online :).

    “Maybe the book gives more insight into why all the girls hung out with Ali, and willingly put up with her BS.”
    They hung out with Ali because she was the “it girl” at school; and she chose them to be her friends. She made them feel like a somebody. – according to the book

    But they realize she’s a bitch after she dies and they analyze everything.

    “…mentioned something about Alison being the glue that holds their group together.” Ali knows all their secrets.

    I don’t understand the “it” girl/boy thing. Can someone explain that? Is it possibly just an American tv thing?

    I don’t remember much of Mocking Bird either – and that was about 3-4 years ago XD.

    Didn’t Spencer’s family go to NY?

    So happy for Hanna that Kate’s not pretty ^^, as Kate’s well, a bitch in the book and she was really mean to Hanna before the weight loss. Maybe you thought Kate’s awful cause she didn’t smile (or I missed it) and there’s this air of unfriendliness about her?

    You should read the books, but there are bits of the tv series that are better e.g. Ezra + Aria, how it’s more than just physical.

    At like every school there’s this one male teacher that all the girls seem to like, and that teacher is often one of the youngest ones you can get (30 here). Also girls tend to like older guys because they make them feel kinda safe and secure, in a way, I don’t know how to explain that.

    • Thanks for the insight into the girls’ friendship with Ali. In terms of an “it girl,” I think it’s really just a buzz word for the most popular / prettiest girl in high school. Examples in media include Queen B Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl and Regina George in the film Mean Girls. Although there are plenty more I can list here, I think you get the idea. 😉

      To some extent, I can understand certain girls putting up with an “It Girl” / Mean Girl’s BS, in order to be popular by association. However, based on what we know about the girls on this show (and in the book), none of them (with the exception of, perhaps, Hanna) really seem like the type to give up so much of themselves just for a chance at popularity.

      I can definitely understand the allure of a Hot Young Male High School Teacher. In my high school it was Mr. Devlin (I may have even mentioned him in one of these recaps. He was in his late 20’s, and taught history. But, I swear he could have been an actor.)

      I can particularly see Aria’s attraction to Ezra in this story, as Aria seems so mature for her age. She’s really like an “old soul,” as they say — perhaps, more so than any of the other characters. And, I guess, in a few years, once Aria is in her early twenties, their age difference won’t be nearly as big of a deal as it seems now.

      LOL re: Kate. Honestly, I didn’t see enough of her in the first season to form a true opinion of her. I just found her really boring and bland in her premiere episode. And, therefore, developed an instinctive dislike for her. Based on what you’ve told me, that dislike will probably continue to grow, as the series progresses.

      I’m glad you’re getting to catch the episodes online. It’s so much easier to watch programs when you can do so on your own time schedule. Happy viewing!

    • I thought you might appreciate this, Anastasia (and fellow PLL fans) . . .

      http://shelf-life.ew.com/2010/12/08/four-new-pretty-little-liars-books-on-the-way-in-july/

      I guess I better hurry up and start reading the first 8, huh? Or do you think I will find them redundant, having watched Season 1 of PLL?

  6. Anastasia

    There’s a sport teacher at our school that’s hotter XD, everyone seen him in underwear – he’s an underwear model. Everyone knows, but we have these unwritten/spoken rules and one of them is you stay out of the teacher’s personal (out of school inc. what they did during the weekend) life and they stay out of yours. There’s a great divide between students and most of the teachers here.

    In high school the age diff for dating is about 1-2yrs, but it increases after that a lot, because of the wide range of ages of the people around us.

    Four new books… maybe another A? The last book left us hanging – A might have died or might be still alive. Not sure what Shepard is going to write about; but I do hope Ezra comes back (in the book he leaves and is never mentioned again). But he did say to Aria to call him in a few years.

    I’m only up to episode 5, but I still think you’ll enjoy it – the books. There are parts that are better in the series e.g. Spencer’s view on doing whatever it takes to win and Ezra + Aria’s r’ship is better (not all physical). But you might be upset with what Wren does, in the tv series he seems better, as a character.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I found Ezra Fitz on his bike very sexy. And those biking shorts……anyone have any ideas how to get a vonelator to restrart my heart?
    So I am talking about Ezra now, I can’t stop. So lets just keep going, shall we? Him and Aria at the dinner date (later the dinner fight) was cute at first then I just got sort of confused. Ezra is just trying to give her advice (BTW do we ever get to his brother? And is he as good looking as Ezra?) and she blows up? And he makes a total a** out of himself with that thing in the classroom with Atticus? (Its weird because I read TKAM for an English class recently and now that I am done with book, I actually get what their talking about!) Your right, Ezra was peeved off and then defends/permanently scars Aria in front of everyone. Then she just goes into his apartment without being invited in? Rude, much? I know theres a Welcome mat with a key under it but that doesn’t mean she can just waltz in and scream at him! (by the way his face was too cute……anyway moving on) He serves her left overs and brags that his cooking doesn’t always require medical attention. Isn’t that sweet?
    The thing with Wren was funny. “I had trouble locating the front of the house. I’m sory!” Why are the drunk British guys so cute to watch on TV? Yeah so Spencer+Wren=Spren and that = CrazyLove very happy.
    Hanna *yawns* sorry. The scene with her dad and his fiance and future stepdaughter was just weird. Not a whole lot of important stuff there.
    Now on to Emily. The scarf thing was lame but Toby’s “it looked good on you” was sweet. Then there was night time and Toby approaching. That was creepy. I am getting mixed signals from this guy
    All in all a pretty good episode (sorry about my very detailed thing on Ezra and Aria. Hes the only good reason I keep watching the show)

    • LOL re: your response to the Bike Shorts. For what it’s worth, I think Spencer was a fan of them as well!

      Awwww, Drunk British Wren and his potted plant! How could anyone not love this guy? And he just seemed SO SMITTEN with Spencer. I really do hate that there was no closure to this storyline.

      I forgot how SERIOUSLY freaky Toby was in early episodes. Sometimes, I wonder if they initially planned to make him a villain on the show, and changed their minds midway through. Keegan Allen is a great actor though. Of all the roles on the show, his is probably one of the most complex (along with Lucas’), and he handles it really well.
