Episode Synopsis: It’s my first Pretty Little Post and I’m so happy to be back! Now onto the show... unless you want to talk about me some more? Alright, fine I’ll get back to work. First off, someone needs to prescribe Spencer some anti-anxiety medication or she needs to start drinking because girl is wrapped up tighter than Mariah Carey in a red carpet dress. It doesn’t help that the rest of the girls are seeing Ian at every chance they get. Meanwhile, Emily shows off some of the secret service tactics she’s picked up by forging a college scholarship letter. I thought she was the shy one? Hanna is simultaneously playing matchmaker and homewrecker with Lucas and her dad, Tom, respectively. Sass and class - Hanna’s got it all. Aria started a class at the local university where her BF Ezra “Six-Pack-For-Dayz” Fitz is teaching. Will someone catch their between class make-outs? Oh yeah, that’s bound to happen. However, the real treat this week was Toby doing yard work. Shirtless. Sure, Spencer stole Melissa’s wedding ring and pawned it to buy Toby a truck but next to his body, that’s a minor plot point, right?
Good lord Emily, do you live in that bathroom or are you just visiting? I loved when staffer Ann assigned Spice Girl Spirits for the Liars but this ensemble makes me want to change Emily from Sporty Spice to I’ve Given Up On Life Spice. If I wasn’t single and didn’t have two cats, I would have made a cat lady joke. A joke which is now, on me. ::sigh::
Now this is the Emily I know and have lukewarm feelings for. The scene where Emily and Pam have a brief heart to heart about Emily liking girls was cute. However, it didn’t make me like Emily any more, or less, than I already did. But as a card carrying member of the gay community (it’s true - I have a card) it’s my duty to point out any favourable storylines; it’s kind of our “thing”. Wearing a shirt with pattern or texture is always going to look fashionable on Emily because otherwise it looks like she dresses in rags. If you’re going baggy, for the love of Cher, have something that defines the fabric.
Preppy? Check. Glamour? Check. What you can only describe as “Aria”? Check. These girls certainly know how to make an entrance in a public bathroom. I died watching this scene because for one, it’s SO high school to have a clandestine meeting in the bathroom, but also because they all strut out of the stalls in unison. How very Mean Girls.
This might look like two different photos - and it is - however, it is NOT two different days. I’m hardly going to begrudge Hanna a midday costume change because I rock that on the regular. I will ask why she went through the bother of changing from a simple flowing pink top to a simple striped t-shirt. Ladies (and lady fabulous men reading this site), if you’re going to change, let your friends know that you can step up your game. Otherwise, I’m going to think all you own is pretty workout gear; and we’ve already got one Emily in our lives.
“I know you’re hiding Ian.”
“Really? You’re not going to say a thing about how I wear chains now?”
