Episode Synopsis: HOLY MOLY. If you didn't think this show could get any creepier after the first season, you were WRONG. These PLL writers sure know how to bring it. No one believes the girls that Ian died and they are all suspect in his disappearance. THEN they are forced to go to a therapist. THEN "A" breaks into Ezra's apartment (but who wouldn't after the show he put on for us!), THEN Melissa starts to believe Spencer...with everything leading to the discovery that Ian is alive. The creepiest moment and completely unexpected is the Noel-Mona relationship. Whoa...
(We're experimenting with a new post format. We got a lot of feedback saying that the old posts were too long. Let us know what you think of this new format over on the YKYLF Blog!)
Aria couldn't quite decide whether she was going for the sexy librarian look or an 80s teen (I daresay her Camp Mona hair would have looked superb with this outfit). So she decided to combine them. As separates, each piece is gorgeous and fits beautifully. The detailing on the collar is quite exquisite. But as one look, all I can say is "Aria, honey, what were you thinking?"
Ashley Marin? Is that really you? Well don't you look relaxed and fresh-faced, like you just came back from St. Barth's. Now we know where all the stolen money went. It's nice to finally see a nice bright pop of color on her, and that blue complements her hair so well!
HELLOOO EZRA! I do believe this is the first time we've witnessed Mr. Fitz in this state of undress. Not too shabby ;)
[Kate, I hearby request that you start tallying the number of "Gratiutious PLL Half-Naked Boys" in your mini recaps - Ed. Jen]
Done. Who am I to argue?
This is like one of those outfits that you see in the back of People or Us Magazine that has the person's eyes blocked out..."Mesh Gone Wrong." What is even going on here? Sheer, mesh, stripes, shimmery belt, metallic bag...at least she cinched her waist in (?)
...and if you saw the back (I wasn't quick enough to get a screenshot) she had on a red bra. Classy, Mona, classy.
So technically Emily had the only snooze-inducing wardrobe...can the girl get enough purple?? Hanna was impeccably dressed, as always. Aria's sartorial choices were nothing out of the ordinary for her...same for Spence.
But can we please note Aria and Spencer in the first column in their PJs. Whose hair looks that fabulous after a night with the 5-0 and what I'm sure was a sleepless sleepover at Spencer's?
The supporting cast were all snores. Pam (Emily's mom) is usually perfectly attired in something that looks a little less mom-like and a little more Lily Humphrey, but not this time. Ella's pants are bunching at her knees--she wears those boots enough, one would think she would have purchased a pair of bottoms that fit neatly into them by now! And Mona switches out the hideous mesh monstrosity for leopard and gaudy earrings, but it is entirely Mona in a toned down kind of way. Btw: How does Noel go from Aria to Mona?? "A" collaborators, perhaps?
I want to rag on Melissa but unfortunately after the ordeal she was put through, that is exactly what I would be wearing--actually my sweats would be way less cute.
Caleb, Toby, and Ezra were utterly and completely plain...I'm putting in a request to the wardrobe department: All the male character's wardrobes should only consist of pants from now on; but their faces are quite the opposite of snoozeworthy, so drink it in :) Although it does appear that Mr. Fitz has started Mr. Schue's 12-step program for Vest Addiction. Props to that!
