*Sigh* I Can’t With You Right Now, “Pretty Little Liars”… I Just Can’t

PLL_Halloween_Theme_Song_GIF

It’s taken me seven days to write this post, considering the fact that I spent FIVE whole years of my life watching this show faithfully, dying to know who was behind the uber “A” mask. After having been duped with red herrings (Ezra! Toby!) and coming up with different theories in my head, I thought that even if my final, top three ‘A’ predictions were wrong, I could retire for the night of the Season 6A finale knowing that I would be sufficiently satisfied in discovering the true identity of Big A. But after last week’s episode, I still have so many questions and I’m not really satisfied. Not quite….

emilypllsomuchgoingon I STILL HAVE MANY QUESTIONS!!!!!!! 

pllwhat

Basic ones too, such as, why were Melissa and Wren so involved in the lives of these teenage girls? What was Wren doing in Radley? What/who was Melissa protecting Spencer from all this time, “before ‘it’ started”?

Melissa is Spencer’s older sister and, as good older sisters go, would be concerned with the comings and goings of her lil’ sis. But, what was with all of her suspect behavior for the entire duration of the series thus far? We know that she buried Bethany Young alive, as she stated in the past.

There was a time not too long ago when Melissa was a prime candidate for Black Widow, and then come to find out that Sara Harvey, who is a character that was just recently introduced, is both Black Widow and Red Coat. Why? Why is she doing Charlotte’s/A’s bidding so eagerly?

We also know that Mona killed Bethany Young, as told to the other liars during the reveal and confessions of A/Charlotte. So, one of them is either telling a lie or caught up in a serious case of fatal mistaken identity. Something still isn’t right in the milk here.

What’s happened to the N.A.T. club? Why was this such a pivotal moment in the PLLverse? I specifically remember multiple early episodes dedicated to the shady behavior of the N.A.T. club and its members. I refuse to believe that this information was randomly placed in this TV show just to throw the viewers off track.

n.a.t. club

Is Rhys Matthews coming back? Can someone please explain what happened to Maya?! Who locked the PLL moms in the basement? Where is Lucas? Did Charlotte try to kill Jason, hence his elevator accident, presuming that he found out about Charlotte’s secret? Who killed Garrett? Where is Mike? Where is Jenna? I STILL HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS Y’ALL!!!

Now most of the world knows that “A” is “Charles” is “Charlotte”, Ali’s transgender sister who has terrorized all of fictional Rosewood with her fatal games of cat and mouse. When this was revealed, I was shocked and then swiftly upset. After all these years, A has been CeCe Drake?!

Pretty-Little-LiarsPart of me doesn’t buy this reveal and maybe I’m in denial as a shopper. CeCe as A just does not, and will continue not to be the A that I wanted. I’ve also witnessed a lot of other PLL viewers on Twitter and other corners of the Internet in agreement, not quite believing what we saw during the Season 6A finale to be true. I know that I. Marlene King says Charlotte is Big A, but I would have rather it have been one of the liars or even Wren, which turned out to be the safest pick that I was against, but now wish were true after all.

It Feels Good To Be Back

I’m going to pretend that I haven’t been away in say, oh, just about five months. In blog time, those months equal years. My excuse is that life caught up with me, in the form of a new job and new responsibilities. I found myself writing blog posts in my head that never came around to being realized here. But maybe taking a hiatus was what I needed to avoid total, ultimate burnout. Exhaustion is REAL ladies and gentlemen.

GoT Understand GIFs

So, in the interim I reported on issues of diversity in the media and entertainment, caught up on all sorts of Netflix goodness (I was late on the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” train, but I hopped on and won’t undo), sat in darkened movie theatres, and drummed up business ideas while listening to Purity Ring, Tame Impala, and Interpol stuck on repeat. I ran in the park, read Gillan Flynn novels on the subway (TWO WORDS: SHARP OBJECTS), and somehow survived Winter. Now I can come back with a renewed sense of purpose.

Sharp Objects

“Sharp Objects” will be your next television series obsession when it premieres….TRUST

So, what tickles me in the world of film, television, music and digital these days? Well, “Game of Thrones” is on fire. It’s one of the few television series these days that can leave me disgusted one moment and then shouting for joy the next. I really wish I had my own dragon children…

Then there’s “Pretty Little Liars”, which after the latest episode has left me with one crucial thought: Is Charles DiLaurentis reppin’ hard for MGTOW? Seriously. If so, then this show just went from 100 to 1000.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” is a movie on my “absolute you must-see” list for the summer. It was a more enjoyable, thrilling viewing experience compared to Avengers: Age of Ultron for the action alone. There are a slew of other movies I can’t wait for including “Dope”, “Me, Earl and the Dying Girl”, Gaspar Noe’s “Love”, “Paper Towns”, “Southpaw”, “Train Wreck”, and “Heaven Knows What” (I’m checking this out today- my body and soul are ready). Plus new Foals and Maccabees music are on the horizon and the third and final series of “My Mad Fat Diary” premieres in less than two weeks, along with the second season of “True Detective” on Father’s Day. The second half of 2015 is shaping up to be magical….

So… I’m back! Now go and binge-watch Season 3 of Orange is the New Black.

Pretty Little Liars…You’re Killing Me Over Here I Love You For It

Let me tell you…”Pretty Little Liars” is taking all of my FEELS, plopping them in the middle of the Schuylkill River, picking them back up, wringing them bone dry, and laying them out in blistering heat. But it feels so good. Why? Well let’s take last night’s insane season finale, shall we? A lot of big questions were answered, but now we have a whole host of new ones. Then again, a PLL finale wouldn’t be the same without questioning every event and every character you thought you knew.

BIG WTF MOMENTS 

pretty-little-liars-season-4-finale-a-is-for-answers

– Ali’s shocking Mommy Dearest confession: So, we found out in episodes past that Mrs. D is creepy, but nothing beats burying your own child alive. Whether she knew if Ali was dead or not in the moment, the scenes leading up to witnessing Mrs. D covering Ali in dirt six feet was jaw-dropping. Flies and other bugs could have gone into my mouth if they wanted to. Mrs. D. is in cahoots with someone (most likely A) or at least knew what A was up to. It got her killed though (or so we think).

– Ezra getting shot: I had a feeling right after the gun went off that Ezra had gotten shot, and then we panned to A making a fool of the girls once again, and then we pan to Ezra looking at the Philly skyline wistfully and it was then that I knew he got shot. Nothing could have prepared me for Aria’s reaction though. I was done.

– Mona’s crafty little plan: Mona knew all along about Ali’s disappearance because she crafted the plan from the beginning! Well played Mona. Well played.

– Toby going to London to tell Melissa about Spencer’s relapse: I love that Toby cares about Spencer, but he boarded a plane to London to tell Melissa about it? Say what? That threw me for a loop somehow. We can count Toby out of the A game at this stage, but methinks he knows more than we do.

THINGS THAT MADE ME GO LOL

– Hanna and her cookies: When Hanna made a little ruckus during the girls’ reunion in lieu of grabbing a handful of cookies, I laughed and related. I definitely have some Hanna in me.

– Spencer’s definition of lame ducks vs. geese: Glad to see Spencer correcting Hanna on her use of expressions. Word nerds unite!

MORE QUESTIONS & THEORIES 

tumblr_static_46907-pretty-little-liars-pll-wallpaper

– Well there goes my Ezra as A theories! As legit as I thought they sounded in my head (and looked on screen), this season’s finale changed the “Who is A?” game.

– Jason is looking SO suspect right now. He could possibly have been the one to bash Ali’s head in.

-Speaking of Jason, if it was not him, who did Mrs. DiLaurentis see knocking out Ali? Who is she protecting?!?

-Judging from the build and movement of A in the final scenes of last night’s episode, I’m leaning towards the notion that A is a guy.

-What did Melissa whisper in her dad’s ear? Either she killed the unknown girl in Ali’s grave or knows who did. There was a reason she fled to London and it wasn’t for the tea.

-The list of possible A’s has been whittled down and it’s quite possible that A is someone that the audience has never met and/or someone that the girls never would have suspected.

Jason, Noel, Paige, Wren, Mona, Mr. Hastings…I’m keeping my eyes on you!

– Is Mrs. D really dead? I would not be surprised if she finds herself in a similar predicament like her daughter’s.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Vs. ‘The Originals’: Fans Take Sides As A Feud Is Born

This is brilliant marketing to be quite honest. The comeback ad from ABC Family is ALL kinds of hilarious and oh so very true. I’m sorry, but I left “The Vampire Diaries” behind some years ago and still have yet to watch “The Originals”. I just haven’t had the heart to because #PLL has my heart wrapped around its tiny, sneaky fingers. #LiarsUnite

 

Bite Me- A

Hollywood Life

The CW drama is running an attack ad against the ABC Family hit — but ‘A’ isn’t going down without a fight. Which show will YOU watch live tonight?

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been dreading this day for weeks. Beginning tonight, two of my favorite shows — ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars and The CW’s The Originals — will both be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET, a phenomenon that hasn’t occurred since PLL‘s Halloween episode aired in Oct. 2013.

Pretty Little Liars 2014 Winter Promo

Pretty Little Liars Winter Premiere Airs TONIGHT!!!

My inner fan girl has been screaming for months in anticipation of tonight’s Pretty Little Liars winter premiere! After Ezra revealed himself as A (or for those still in denial, a possible piece of the A team), this season will usher in more explosive revelations and heartbreak. Don’t believe me? Check out these spoiler answers to fan questions!

What will the liars do/think when they find out about Ezra? What does Alison have to say for her disappearance? What will her family say if they see her at all this season? Will there be more Ravenswood/PLL crossover episodes? I’m sure that some of these questions and more will be uncovered from now until the summer months ahead.

p.s. Here’s a wonderful Sway and Sasha Pieterse interview on Sway’s Universe. I love how he doesn’t front on his knowledge of Pretty Little Liars, says that “we needed this because Gossip Girl is over”, also says that he’s a “teenage White girl at heart”, Sasha singing at the top of her lungs, Sasha’s dad talking about Nelson Mandela, and the fact that Sway encourages his daughter to read!
